49 More Really Sexual Top 40 Hits

Janet Jackson "Nasty" (1986)

Hot 100 Peak Position: No. 3

"My first name ain't baby, it's Janet, Miss Jackson if you're nasty" was Janet putting her foot down and asserting her sexiness-and it eventually became a popular catchphrase. On "Nasty," Janet's second single off her third album, Control, she was giving an account of confronting men who would hit on her on the street. The entire album was Janet showcasing her new attitude, and putting her foot down to the way men had treated her but "Nasty" was Janet's platform to say, "I'm not a purse, I just want some respect." You go, girl.
