Pink wanted to call this album Heartbreak Is a Motherfucker — a fitting title for a record that follows her divorce from pro motocross rider Carey Hart. With songwriter Max Martin chipping in, the rock diva finds ways to make emotional rawness go pop on Funhouse, turning out silly, catchy funk and supercharged electro. She drinks in the afternoon, forgets to eat and shows off her feisty side on the arena-ready hit "So What," where she disses Hart and looks to start a fight. Still, Pink has shown more personality before, and some cuts, including the goopy ballad "I Don't Believe You," make her sound like just another big-voiced chart-buster. Funhouse would be more fun if Pink went easier on the bad-love songs.

    “Party Rock Anthem”

    LMFAO | 2011

    This electro-pop uncle-nephew duo burst onto the scene with 2009’s "Shots," a song about getting totally obliterated. Two years afterward, they were still shamelessly getting wild but now insisting that everyone else join them in the fun. "I wanted a song for when we walked into a party, so I thought, 'Party rock in the house tonight/Everybody just have a good time,'" Redfoo (a.k.a. Stefan Gordy, son of Motown founder Berry Gordy) told Rolling Stone about the lyrics to "Party Rock Anthem." "The 'just' was key. I made it a command to focus people on what to do now that we’re here together."
