Black Eyed Peas, 'Boom Boom Pow'

Will.i.am. keeps the Jock Jam tradition alive the way Led Zeppelin kept the blues alive. "Boom Boom Pow" makes "Whoomp There It Is" seem like a wax-winged wisp of Dickinsonian miniaturism. The beat is so stupid it’s like a zombie standing around in a crowd of zombies thinking, "Man, these other zombies are really smart." The lyrics aren't just perfect for Jumbotrons – they could've been written on one. In other words, Jock Jam gold.
