Favorites, most to least:

1) American Idiot
2) Trapped In the Closet
3) Confessions, Part III
4) Ridin'
5) Do I Make You Proud

The latter may be the weakest Al target since Ruthless People.

Thanks, but no thanks, James Blunt. Too bad you aren't including 'You're Beautiful' as one of the choices, or I would go with that. Once again, Al's ridiculous hip hop/rap obsession goes overboard with this album with 3 of the 5 parodies. So, those 3 are struck out easily. I like Green Day but not this song of theirs. And so, by default, I'm going with Taylor Hicks' song.

I count one hip hop/rap parody on this album. Which are the other two exactly? Or do you just mean "by a black person"?

I think if you broadened that category to include R&B, then you'd be correct. But neither "Confessions Part II" nor "Trapped in the Closet" qualify as hip hop songs.

R. Kelly and Usher's songs I put in that category. Although, Confessions is more R&B. I don't care for the misogyny and foul language associated with today's hip hop/rap. I don't appreciate your racist implication. I group Eminem & Robin Thicke in with this category and they are very white and exclude Michael Jackson for the lack of misogyny and foul language.

Fine. hip hop/rap/r&b. I'm not so awesome with classifying music genres. Thanks. :D

This is voting for best original song right? I'd never pick any of these over Green Day, especially You're Beautiful, what a sappy snarly voice, can't stand that guy. Glad most people would say Green Day over these other artists though I agree American Idiot is far from the best song, especially on that work of art!

This seems extremely arbitrary. R&B is a completely unrelated genre. The only thing that these songs have in common with hip hop is the color of the skin of the performers. Nothing else.

Okay. I don't agree that R&B is a completely unrelated genre, so we'll just have to agree to disagree. My main point is that those artists have misogyny and foul language in their lyrics, which I don't care for.
