The 2 Live Crew "Get It Girl"

The 2 Live Crew "We Want Some Pussy"


Everything the group released in the mid-to-late1980s should feasibly make this list but "Get It Girl" and "We Want Pussy" stand out as the tracks where 2 Live Crew truly became 2 Live Crew. Deciding that Mr. Mixx, Brother Marquis and Fresh Kid Ice's live presence wasn't bold enough, manager/record label owner Luther Campbell had, by '87, started spicing up their shows with X-rated, call-and-response chants, eventually becoming a full-fledged member.

"We Want Some Pussy" was the first track to apply this formula to wax (and also the first of many 2LC tracks to feature hard rock guitars), and—to those old enough to remember 2 Live Crew before "Me So Horny" and "Banned in the USA"—it's still their definitive song.

But "Get It Girl" (which also featured Luke, boasting to a girl about having a "down payment on Miami," on its outro) holds up even better, a timeless, PG-13 ode to feminine sex appeal that's still capable of getting the party going in any city or state.
