20 Things I'd Rather Do Than Listen to "I Gotta Feeling" by the Black Eyed Peas

By Maddie

"I Gotta Feeling" by the Black Eyed Peas is the number 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? "Did I close my eyes and wake up in some 2003-2006 nightmare?" No, my friends (or, well, readers), you didn't. George W. Bush is no longer our President and Shaun White is no longer our collective sweetheart. So why are the Black Eyed Peas back on top? I guess I'll never know. These are 20 things I'd rather do than listen to this song.

1. Wear boot cut jeans
2. Dance the first dance at my wedding to "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" by Elton John
3. Eat Papa John's pizza without the garlic dipping sauce
4. Be Joey Gladstone's niece
5. Say "amped," as in "I'm totally amped on this new Gavin DeGraw CD!"
6. Listen to a 17 year old Libertarian-leaning male talk about South Park
7. Believe that everything happens for a reason
8. Order this t-shirt
9. Agree with Mikey on something
10. [WARNING: GRAPHIC] Wear a pad instead of a tampon
11. Offend Bob Dylan
12. Try to have a rational conversation with a Birther
13. Overhear a debate about which Third Eye Blind song is better, "Jumper" or "Semi-Charmed Life"
14. Be involved in the making of Baby Geniuses 3
15. Hang out with an Insane Clown Posse fan for at least three hours
16. Sign up for ChristianCafe.com
17. Attend the America's Future Now! conference as Mary Landrieu's date
18. Admit that I actually do love "Piano Man" by Billy Joel
19. Guide my life by the Alchemist
20. Listen to "Where is the Love?"


  1. Great article as always but:

    HOLY SHIT!! There's a Baby Geniuses 3!

  2. My favorite member of Black Eyed Peas:

    Apple D'App (or whatever). Dumbest name in music ever.

  3. Hard to pick a favorite from this but probably either

    #6 or the one about pads.

  4. I miss you and OYIT. But I currently have Glenn! I win.
