“Hollaback Girl” And “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” Rank On VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of 2000s

Entertainment Weekly magazine have recently revealed the rankings for VH1’s new countdown of the 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s and Gwen apparently shows up twice on the list. First she comes in with Eve at #45 with 2001’s “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” and her supersonic international hit at #30, “Hollaback Girl”. We are a little surprised that No Doubt didn’t make the list (really, no “Hey Baby” or “Underneath It All”?) but we are happy to see her presence on the list!

The countdown starts and premieres on VH1 October 3.

Entertainment Weekly — While nobody seems to know exactly what to call the first decade of the 21st century (we refuse to say “the aughts” out of an unwillingness to sound like Grandpa Simpson), but it’s certainly safe to start collecting and collating 10 years’ worth of culture.

That’s exactly what VH1 is up to with their 100 Greatest Songs of the ’00s special, which counts down the finest tunes the post-Y2K era had to offer.

Last week, we pulled the curtain back on the first 11 songs on the list, and now we can exclusively reveal the full 100 (headed up by Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love,” which is basically inarguable).

To get the full experience, you’ll have to check out the special, which premieres this Monday, October 3 at 10 PM on VH1 and continue for five nights. Pete Wentz serves as the host, with commentary from the likes of Kelly Rowland, Lil Jon, Colbie Caillat, and Train.

30. Gwen Stefani, “Hollaback Girl”

45. Eve featuring Gwen Stefani, “Let Me Blow Ya Mind”
