    The "song" is fine, whatever. But in the historic scheme of things, "Baby Shark" has already performed better on the charts than iconic classics of the past.

    Virgin

    Here is a list of those classics:

    1. "My Neck, My Back" by butt-munching queen, Khia, only peaked at #42

    Artemis

    Yes, your eyes aren't deceiving you. "B*by Sh*rk" out-peaked this gorgeous classic.

    2. "Dirrty" by Christina Aguilera peaked at #48

    youtube.com

    "Dirty, filthy, nasty" >>> "doo doo doo doo doo doo."

    3. "Crush" by Mandy Moore peaked somewhere in the #50s

    youtube.com

    The quintessential indie rock anthem charted worse than a baby shark song.

    4. Anything by Lindsay Lohan

    vimeo.com

    Literally the only song by Lindsay to chart is dad-hating anthem, "Confessions Of A Broken Heart" at #57.

    5. "Stuck" by Stacie Orrico peaked at #52

    youtube.com

    JUSTICE. FOR. STACIE. MF. ORRICO. It's what all of the sharks (mommy, daddy, grandma, grandpa) would want.

    6. "Bugaboo" by Destiny's Child peaked at #33

    youtube.com

    "Baby Shark" beat it by one spot. ONE SPOT.

    7. "Me Against The Music" by Britney and Madonna peaked at #35

    youtube.com

    Two legends or four sharks? I choose legends.

    8. "Tearin' Up My Heart" by Nsync peaked at #59

    RCA

    Sad.

    9. Arguably Backstreet Boys' best, "The Call," only made it to #52

    youtube.com

    More sad.

    10. Criminally underrated Paris Hilton bop, "Nothing In This World," didn't chart at all!

    11. "This Is Me" by Dream made it to #39

    youtube.com

    That's seven spots worse than "Baby Shark." SEVEN SPOTS.

    12. "Dancing On My Own" by Robyn didn't even chart

    youtube.com

    *Gay gasp*

    13. Anything by the nuns of Sister Act

    Touchstone Pictures

    They literally pray for all living things including sharks. They deserved better.

    14. "What Dreams Are Made Of" by Italian popstar, Isabella, feat. little known local, Lizzie McGuire

    Disney

    A cinematic classic.

    15. Bottoming anthem, "Dark Side" by Kelly Clarkson only peaked at #42

    youtube.com

    Bottom-shaming at its finest.

    16. "Baby Come On Over" by Samantha Mumba peaked at #49

    youtube.com

    The "Baby Shark" people wish they could be half as iconic as Miss Mumba.

    17. All the instrumentals from "Titanic" but especially "Rose" and "Southhampton"

    Sony Classical

    They should have all easily gone top 10.

    18. The commercial for the "Pure Moods" soundtrack

    The most important commercial of our time.

    19. And "Come Clean" by Hilary Duff peaked at #35

    youtube.com

    "COME CLEAN" INVENTED RAIN. "BABY SHARK" INVENTED NOT BEING ABLE TO ESCAPE MY BRAIN.
