5. Britney Spears - "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction"

It's hard to think of a way to piss off rock and roll purists more than Britney Spears covering The Rolling Stones – though Mick Jagger himself is on record saying that he really liked it. Her most famous performance of the song came at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards when she played it in a man's suit, before ripping off her clothes for "Oops...I Did It Again." Anybody who was a teenage boy circa 2000 remembers the moment very well.
