Along with the terms "twerk" and "bougie," the word "ratchet" falls into the hoodrat category and spans across all genres of music and subject matter. In case you don't know what this means, please allow us to explain: It's the trashy sense of fashion that some people think is classy but, in reality, it's just plain trashy (see the infamous Urban Dictionary for a more specific definition).
Even artists like Miley Cyrus and Rihanna have excelled at this sort of raunchiness. Because of this wide-spread epidemic, we decided to compile a list to hopefully differentiate between raunchy and wholesome tunes. Read on, but beware, some of this is indeed contagious, and not suitable to watch on your work computer or iPhone during tea with your Nana. Also, watch out for number ten, the most ratchet song of them all.
