Jennifer Garner should have used an alias instead of putting her name on this breathlessly boring spinoff of Daredevil, the 2003 Marvel Comics misfire in which she co-starred with her new honey, Ben Affleck. Garner is back (Affleck isn't) doing martial-arts kicks as Elektra, this time dressed in skimpy S&M Madonna rejects. The hottie lady in red has returned from the dead in the form of a cranky, listless contract killer redeemed by the love of the little girl (Kirsten Prout) she saves from — oh, who the hell cares?

    “Vans”

    The Pack | 2006

    Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
