4. "Gin and Juice" - Snoop Dogg
"You can't even try to say the lyrics out loud without sounding like Snoop. Try it: 'I got bitches in the living room gettin' it on, And they ain't leavin' til six in the mornin','" sings the singer. "When you have a song that no one would even consider covering, you got a classic. And this is coming from a guy who's not the least bit interested in hip-hop."

3. "Say It Ain't So" - Weezer
"Weezer's first album bridged the gap between joke band and slacker epic songwriting. No one ever wanted to take them seriously, but 'Say It Ain't So' couldn't be ignored. In an album full of great toe-tapping songs, Weezer hit the jackpot with this one," Clarke says of this teen angst classic. "There's a heartbreaking honesty to Cuomo's voice and even the way the feedback leads you into the crescendos. He even had me feeling bad that someone had left a Heineken crowding his icebox."
