On No Doubt's M.I.A.-tinged comeback hit, "Settle Down," Gwen Stefani reminded us how a true food-court princess gets down. The band calls this Diplo-produced track its "Bohemian Rhapsody." It stacks SoCal ska, a big alt-rock chorus, dancehall flow and electro undergroove until it sounds like two and a half No Doubt songs at once. Luckily, Gwen's beach-blanket B-girl flow ("Speeding it up like soca/ ...On another level like we doin' yoga") holds this down to earth.

    “Vans”

    The Pack | 2006

    Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
