18. Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch
"Good Vibrations" (1991, Number One) and "Wild Side" (1991, Number 10)
In the Eighties, New Kids on the Block fans knew Mark Wahlberg as Donnie's juvenile delinquent younger brother, if they knew him at all. But Mark came dancing into the new decade as the thinking woman's Vanilla Ice, capably delivering ghosted raps over propulsive house music beats on "Good Vibrations," and flexing a beefy social consciousness on the Lou Reed-jacking "Wild Side." And if he was never as good an MC as he was an underwear model, well, no shame in that: There are plenty of legit hip-hop stars who can't rhyme as well as Marky could fill out his Calvin Klein briefs.
