32. ‘What Would You Do?’ by City High (2001)

city-high

Unlike later socially conscious, question-title songs like The Black Eyed Peas’ “Where is the Love?”, WWYD dares to get gritty and specific. It also dares to have all of its talk of abominations against women culminate in a fucking stonking chorus.

What’s more, in a time before the concept of mansplaining was a widely discussed thing, the video includes a moment where the guy HALTS THE SONG just so he can demonstrate how little he’s grasped what the woman has just expressed to him… only to get smacked the fuck down and be forced to admit he’s always had a bad relationship with women because he thinks THEY ARE ALL HIS MOTHER.

BONUS POINTS: The ‘Oh Happy Day’ kid!

Although if you look into the shit that went down in this band, you will see there were very few happy days.
