Nine bands worse than the Black Eyed Peas -- at least according to Billboard

The new Billboard Hot 100 keeps coming out, and despite an alarming gain by some guy named Jay-Z, the Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" remains on top, further proving that the Peas are the greatest pop ensemble ever assembled (even better than those old guys above).

Don't believe that the Peas are one of the greatest pop groups ever? What follows are nine of the many otherwise acclaimed bands or musicians who've been bested by the Peas over the course of their twenty-five weeks (and counting) atop the Hot 100.

Remember "Hey Ya!"? That was a great single. You couldn't escape that thing in early 2004, and why would you want to? But it was only number one for a measly nine weeks. Either Peas hit song is better. Fleetwood Mac
