Winner: The Baha Men - Who Let The Dogs Out?

True to form, the Grammys only recognised dance music with its own category in 1998, several years after it had made its mainstream breakthrough. Since then, the list of nominees has been regularly littered with wildly inappropriate songs. Despite the likes of Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim frequently getting nods, there have been plenty of inclusions which would be better described as R'n'B, upbeat pop or, worse still, novelty songs.

The most notable triumph for that latter genre came in 2001 when annoying kids' party staple Who Let The Dogs Out? by one-hit wonders TheBaha Men took the award. The normally mild-mannered Moby, who was also nominated that year, must have been furious.
