2000's Guilt #17: Madison Avenue “Don’t Call Me Baby” (2000)

Somewhere between Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" and 3Oh!3's (already forgotten) shitty breakthrough single, the fight against blatant misogyny within pop culture started to seem like a lost cause. But back in 2000, disco hits like "Don't Call Me Baby" were still considered profitable commodities. In fact, IIRC the song did extremely well shooting to #1 in both the UK and in Australia, although it was only a minor hit in the United States. This is definitely the kind of song that would never chart today.
