24. Justice, '†' (Ed Banger, 2007)
French EDM duo Justice rocked the 2000s by channeling the simplest disco and cheesiest Euro-trash into piledriver tracks that made Daft Punk look like folkie wallflowers. "Stress" set swarming Psycho strings over lunging Jaws bass; "D.A.N.C.E." deployed a kiddie choir and a Chic bassline; "Waters of Nazareth" had some of the dirtiest synth squawks ever recorded, a church organ and a beat scientifically proven to lower your IQ five-to-ten points if you made it through the whole song. The Catholic imagery of their cross logo and song titles like "Genesis" only added to the mystique: these dudes were the high priests of Big Dumb Fun.
