5. Uncle Luke "I Wanna Rock (Doo Doo Brown)" (1991)
While we debated which of founding 2 Live Crew member Uncle Luke's songs to include—really, there are so, so many—it came down to two: "Scarred," his furiously insane mid-90s booty speed rap, or "I Wanna Rock (Doo Doo Brown)." In the end, "I Wanna Rock" proved more influential (and more well-known), and thus, won out. Delivered at the top of the '90s, it's since been cited as one of the most influential songs in the Miami Bass movement. And about that movement? Miami Bass, also known as Booty Music or Booty Bass, is where so much of anything to inspire twerking (or inspired by twerking) started. It's safe to say Uncle Luke—the godfather of booty rap—knew exactly what he was doing when he came out with this one: Redefining what it meant to dance dirty (and what that sound should aspire to) for decades to come.
