Missy Elliott's "Pass That Dutch" in Mean Girls

Film Released: 2004

When the Plastics walked the halls of their high school to Missy's early-Aughts hit, a modern classic-something greater than the average teen flick-was born. It's this moment in which Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, and Amanda Seyfriend stroll together with supreme confidence that they each became superstars.

"Pass That Dutch" knocks with a cautious urgency, a mood that is wholly appropriate for its placement in the film. Lohan's character, Cady, has fully assimiliated into the social group she once sought to sabotage, and while there's fun to be had, there's trouble around the corner, too. Literally. She doesn't make it out of the scene without toppling over into a garbage can. And when the music stops, it's almost a disappointment.
