TIM MCGRAW I'M AN INDIAN OUTLAW Wigwams? Check. Tom-toms? Yep. Peace pipes? You bet. McGraw's first top-ten hit namechecks every Native American stereotype in the books, all while he hangs out in his buffalo briefs. Somehow, I'm An Indian Outlaw manages to be one of the whitest songs ever.

FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE STACY'S MOM CRACKEDeO COM Don't all 12-year-old girls invite horny classmates over to ogle their half-naked mothers?

BENNY MARDONES INTO THE NIGHT She's just sixteen years old, leave her alone, they say. Mardones swore Into the Night was about an innocent platonic relationship, despite the video showing Benny peeping through the high school girl's window. Maybe he forgot the ending when he makes out with her
