"Barbie Girl"

In 1997, the group Aqua put a Danish-Norwegian dance-pop twist on Barbie. They were awarded with one-hit-wonder status and a lawsuit by Mattel, alleging the song "Barbie Girl" violated its trademark and turned Barbie into a sex symbol. It was ruled a legal parody, and Mattel lost.

One hit wonder? I adored their cd! And all my friends did too haha. I even bought it on iTunes the other day, and it's still cheesy-fantastic!!!
