46. Salt-n-Pepa, 'Hot, Cool and Vicious'
Next Plateau, 1986
Yo! baby, yo! Salt, Pepa and DJ Spinderella burst out of Queens to make a classic hip-hop debut, boasting "I'll Take Your Man" even though he's probably just a tramp. This dance ain't for everybody – just the sexy people.
Essential moment: "Push It," which got the entire world chanting "Ooh, baby, baby!" for months.
