3) Travis Tritt / Tim McGraw "Can't Tell Me Nothing" Back in 2002, when country singer Travis Tritt was rocking a mullet and fixing up his 1986 Harley, you couldn't tell him nothin' about nothin' (especially if it was about how drinking and smoking will kill you.) Tritt's anthem was so popular that it was re-recorded and released by Tim McGraw four years later. But like Tritt says, "talk is cheap and free advice / is worth the price you pay." So don't tell him nothing.

2) Nikki Minaj "Beez in the Trap" If there's one thing we've learned about the alter-egoed rapper behind songs like "Stupid Hoe" and "Super Bass," it's that "bitches ain't shit, and they ain't sayin' nuthin.'" OK, we still don't know what that means, and frankly she shouldn't try to tell us because she can't tell us nuthin neither.

1) Kanye West "Can't Tell Me Nothing" The Tell-Nothing King himself Kanye West tops our list for his 2007 sing-along, "Can't Tell Me Nothing." There's a bit of a twist, though: Uncertainty. "Then you can't tell me nothing, right?" he asks. But if there was doubt he quickly sets the record straight: "Uh uh, you can't tell me nothing."

*Fun fact: Kanye West's "Can't Tell Me Nothing" lyric "let the champagne smash / let that man get cash" is sampled in Rihanna's "Numb," #4 on this list.
