Yesterday we tackled some tunes dealing with the sweet ride of one Boba Fett, some homegrown hip hop satire, classic Eddie Murphy, and a few more of the most hilarious rap songs that we've happened to run across in the jungles of the Internet. Today we're at it again with some real hits, and an appearance by one of our favorite funny flowmasters, Dudely Jones. Coming in at No. 20 on the countdown we head to Ireland to visit...
The Rubberbandits actually got a lot of hate in Ireland when this song made it to the top of the charts, because it portrayed the slums of Limerick as a shithole where people were still riding horses because they couldn't afford cars. Of course, seeing as that is actually true, it's kind of hard to argue with them.
If you're like Rocks Off you discovered this song by its appearance over the credits of Kevin Smith's Jay and Silent Strike Back. Smith also directed the official music video. Afroman got nominated for a Grammy for the tune, and on at least one occasion listening to it has been used as a punishment for students caught with drugs.
Rounding out the mainstream part of the list, we come to a band that made high school just a little more bearable, Bloodhound Gang. Sure, "The Bad Touch" from Hooray for Boobies made AOL's list of the 100 Worst Songs Ever, but who are you going to believe? Us or AOL? That's what we thought.
We promise this is the last Star Wars appearance on the list. It's one of two different rap songs Jason Brannon has done, and even though we're sure we'll get it in the comments, we think this is the far superior version despite letting Jar Jar Binks have the last world. Also, it wouldn't surprise us in the slightest if George Lucas actually went out and named a character Admiral Bi-atch.

We've tackled Evan Cassidy and his Dudely Jones Comedy tribe a half a dozen times for his perfect score in releasing great comedy music videos. Picking just one for the list was an agonizing choice, but in the end we had to go with his ode to the soulless in "Where My Gingers At"
Tune in tomorrow for Nos 15-11, where Weird Al finally breaks into the countdown along with another Houstonian, and we all get screwed by Warner Music Group.
