For the past 30 years, musicians across genres and all different walks of life have found bottomless inspiration in the same thing: booty. Behind. Tush. Butt. Ass. Cake. It's been a muse for countless artists, from fictional heavy-metal rock bands like Spinal Tap to the best rapper of 2014. Of course, we aren't judging. On the contrary, we're here to celebrate, especially in the year of the broken Internet and "Anaconda." Let’s take a slow, hip-swaying walk through the gluteus maximus hall of fame with this timeline of derrière odes, from 1984 to today.
