You can't hate on the Muppets. At least, I can’t. But after the delicious treat of 2011's The Muppets, with Jason Segel and Amy Adams joining Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang, Muppets Most Wanted feels like tasteless leftovers. Segel is especially missed as star and co-writer. The plot? A ruthless agent (Ricky Gervais) conspires to have Kermit sent to a gulag run by – yikes! – Tina Fey, while Kermie's evil Russian double replaces him on tour. The breaking point of stretching this one joke is reached early. Luckily, Muppet good will helps get you through the rest.

    “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."
