[[folder:Top Ten Worst Hit Songs of 2004]]
* "Ok, time travelers, put on your poodle skirts and your leisure suits, cause we're taking a nostalgia ride in the wayback machine all the way to the far off year of... (realizes the list he pulled up was from December 25th, 2004) ...huh. ... (tosses papers) Ok."
* Todd can't quite muster up the same enthusiasm for his, "Peace up, A-Town down" as he could in "OMG".
* The fact that his bumper song was Ruben Studdard's "Sorry 2004." The song, which was released in late 2003, was about a guy preemptively apologizing for all the mistakes he'll make in the new year. In the context of the list, however, it becomes an apology for ''the '''entire year''' of 2004''.
* On "With You" by Jessica Simpson:
** "After thirteen years and a billion paparazzi photos, Jessica Simpson's only major contribution to pop culture is being outsmarted by a canned food label."
** "It is easily the worst Jessica Simpson song I've ever heard, and I've listened to lots and lots of Jessica Simpson!" (hangs his head in shame)
** "I'm a little annoyed that this completely synthetic piece of tripe is Jessica presenting herself as 'the real her.' And you're cutting through the layers of showbiz to see who she really is. This is so calculated, it was written on a TI-83. Chances are that even her husband never met the real Jessica. I certainly don't buy that this malformed piece of fluff is anything real."
* On "Someday" by Nickelback:
** "I was only listening to rock music in '04, so I was a little shocked at how little there was of it on this list. Why is the rock so unrepresented? Surely, we had someone to be our standard-bearer of rock 'n roll." (ScareChord JumpCut to a picture of Nickelback)
** "People use the term 'butt rock' to refer to a lot of things, but I think it best applies to Chad Kroeger, because he literally sounds like a butt. That, more that anything, is the key component in Nickelback's rock-bottom reputation: Kroeger the Ogre sounds like he's singing directly out of his colon. Every single song, he just wails like that. [[ImagineSpot How do you think he answers the phone?]] (wailing) '''''[[NoIndoorVoice HELLURRRGH?!]]'''''"
** "Also this is a minor nitpick but the lyrics suck too"
--->'''Chad Kroeger:''' Someday, somehow, I'm gonna make it right but not right now.\\
'''Todd:''' Yeah he's gonna make it right but not right now. I mean the game's on, can't it wait? Jeez.
** "For any other band, this would be the worst thing they ever did. [[ButForMeItWasTuesday Just another day for Nickelback]]."
* On "The Reason" by Hoobastank:
** Todd introduces the song by playing one note on his keyboard over and over.
** "Listen as master poet Doug Robb finds the right words to express that he's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin not a perfect person, weaves romantic tapestry of imagery to show that he's sorry that he hurt you]], and finds a new spin on the tired, insincere cliche, [[ClicheStorm 'I never meant to do those things to you.']] Genius. 'Oh, I never meant to do those things. I'm not gonna say which things. You know, those things.' [[TakeOurWordForIt Whatever those things are.]] Maybe he sold her dog and slept with all her friends."
** "The song starts with a guy saying he isn't perfect and then he goes on to prove it."
* On "One Call Away" by Chingy:
** Todd discussing Chingy's singing voice:
-->'''Todd:''' [Chingy's] voice is by far the worst thing about him. He seems shocked by everything he says. \\
'''Chingy:''' ♪The next day I'm with the fellas at the cage playin' ball??\ Here she comes with her friends?!?!\ They posted up on the wall??!!???♪ \\
'''Todd:''' Seriously, is Urkel dubbing this guy? Does he have a case of the hiccups or what?
** Todd summing up the song's premise:
--->'''[[WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks Ed Wuncler III:]]''' ''(typing out a text message on his cell phone)'' I send that bitch a smiley face. Bitches love smiley faces.
* On "Southside" by Lloyd:
** Todd's impression of a [[KnightTemplarParent dad]] talking to Lloyd about taking his daughter out.
--->(in a Southern accent) "Son, that little girl there is my princess, and if you even got half a mind to touch a hair on her head, I want you to know I got a shotgun and I know how to use it. You keep that in mind, son."
** After Lloyd makes a NCAA reference in what's supposed to be a love song:
--->''(seductively)'' "Oh, baby. Georgetown Hoyas. Big East Conference. [[DoubleEntendre I'm gonna fill out your March Madness bracket."]]
** Todd's realization of who Lloyd is:
--->'''Lloyd:''' ♪Call me Mr. Flintstone, I can make your bedrock!♪\\
'''Todd:''' Oh, wait, it's that guy! The "Bedrock" douche! He sung the hook on one of the worst songs I've ever reviewed. And although everyone involved deserves some of the blame, especially Gudda Gudda, most of all, I hate the singer. It's kind of comforting to know he always sucked.
* Todd is utterly [[SarcasmFailure dumbfounded]] by the sheer badness of "Milkshake".
** "I don't even know what I'm talking about. I'm just dumbfounded. I really didn't know I hated this song so much. It's unlistenable, it sounds like garbage, it's disjointed, it's awful, it's just noise. It's the worst thing the Neptunes ever made. Am I the only one who notices?"
* On "Why" by Jadakiss:
** "Like I said, this was a serious departure from the mindless trends of its time. But why is "Why" on this list? Well, despite its admirable intentions, it had one itty-bitty issue. '''Jadakiss was a moron.'''"
** Todd gives these answers to his questions:
--->'''Jadakiss:''' ♪Why at the bar you ain't take straight shots instead of poppin Crist'?♪\\
'''Todd:''' ''(with a glass)'' What business is it of yours, jerk? Let me drink.\\
'''Jadakiss:''' ♪[[IceCreamKoan Why Halle have to let a white man pop her to get a Oscar? Why Denzel have to be crooked before he took it?]]♪\\
'''Todd:''' [[CriticalResearchFailure You know that]] [[Creator/DenzelWashington Denzel]] [[Film/{{Glory}} had an Oscar before]] ''Film/TrainingDay'', right?\\
'''Jadakiss:''' ♪[[AskAStupidQuestion Why they ain't give us a cure for AIDS?]]♪\\
'''Todd:''' [[SarcasmMode Because they just don't like you, Jadakiss.]] [[WithholdingTheCure There are scientists out there specifically withholding the cure for AIDS from you.]]\\
'''Jadakiss:''' ♪[[SmallNameBigEgo Why my buzz in L.A. ain't like it is in New York?]]♪\\
'''Todd:''' Because you're a New York rapper. Duh! A-Rod doesn't walk around wondering why he's not as popular in Boston, you dumbass.\\
'''Jadakiss:''' ♪Why they come up wit the witness protection? [[Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger Why they let the Terminator win the election?]]♪\\
'''Todd:''' Stupid question after stupid ''freaking'' question.\\
'''Jadakiss:''' ♪Why you gotta do 85% of yo time?/Why you ain't stackin' instead of tryin' to be fly?/Why they never get it poppin' but they party to death?♪\\
'''[[Music/InsaneClownPosse Shaggy 2 Dope:]]''' ♪[[MemeticMutation Fuckin' magnets, how do they work?]]♪\\
'''Todd:''' Look, if you want thoughtful rap, go to Common or Lupe Fiasco or Mos Def; don't go to Jadakiss who thinks this is an insightful commentary on current events.\\
'''Jadakiss:''' ♪[[ShockingSwerve Why do people push pounds and powder? Why did Bush knock down the towers?]]♪\\
'''Todd:''' Oh. [[ConspiracyTheorist Oh, you're one of those]], huh? Well, he did it because the Illuminati needed him to cover up the CIA's mind control program or whatever the hell your crazy ass believes.\\
'''Jadakiss:''' ♪Why did Kobe have to hit that raw? Why he kiss that whore, why?♪\\
'''Todd:''' [[BerserkButton You mean the alleged rape victim? That whore?]] Here's a question for you: why don't you go eat a dick?!
* Todd explaining that there's a right way to drop an F-bomb (Music/CeeLoGreen's "Fuck You"), the wrong way (the already-reviewed "Tonight (I'm Fucking You)"), and the ''wrong'' way, which leads to the #2 of the list, Eamon's "Fuck It".
-->'''Todd:''' This is like listening to that "Graduation" song by Vitamin C with a colicky baby screaming curse words over it.
** The possibility that there will be an episode focusing on Eamon's album, looking at such songs as: "Get Off My Dick", "I Love Them Hoes", and "Ass is Fat". [[note]] Yes, those '''really''' ''were'' the names of three of the songs from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Don%27t_Want_You_Back the same album]][[/note]]
** "I guess his girl cheated on him, so he dumped her, and he's rejecting her attempts to get back with her. No, no, actually, no. Here's what I'm guessing actually happened - he got cheated on, then he got dumped by ''her'', and then this is him writing a song about how he ''wished'' it went down."
* His comments about the number one choice, {{Music/Eminem}}'s "Just Lose It"...
** "[[Film/TheGodfather You broke my heart, Marshall. You broke my heart.]]"
**
--->'''Eminem:''' ♪What else could I possibly do to make noise? I've done touched on everything but little boys...♪\\
'''Todd:''' [[SarcasmMode Oh, so shocking.]] No one actually believes you're going to molest children, Em!
