4. Vanilla Ice, 'Ice Ice Baby'

Vanilla Ice was just asking for a backlash when he released "Ice Ice Baby" in the summer of 1990. Not only did he not give Queen any credit for the famous bassline, but he lied to reporters by telling them that he grew up in the ghetto. Also, he just really came off like a tool. Still, his album To The Extreme sold tons of copies and briefly turned Ice into a superstar. By 1992, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre were on the scene and Vanilla Ice seemed pathetically passé. In the past few years, he's become a reality TV star and a budding real estate mogul.
