Rolling Stone has ranked '...Baby One More Time' as the best debut single of all time!

QUOTE
One of those pop manifestos that announces a new sound, a new era, a new century. But most of all, a new star. Planet Earth, meet Britney Jean Spears, the 17-year-old pride of Kentwood, Louisiana. “…Baby One More Time” is an apocalyptic thunder-clap of a song, with Max Martin’s mega-boom production: The only detail he screwed up was the incredibly annoying ellipsis in the title. As Britney told Rolling Stone in 2000, she stayed up late the night before listening to Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love” (“What a sexy song”) to get the growl she wanted. “I wanted my voice to be kind of rusty.”

In the great tradition of debut singles, it was a divisive statement that drew a line between past and future. “So much attitude in that song,” Spears said. “I was so happy because there’s a lot of good songs out there, but it’s rare when you can take a song and really put your name all over it and put your personality into it.” With “…Baby One More Time,” this girl changed the sound of pop forever: It’s Britney, bitch. Nothing was ever the same.

ABSOLUTELY the right choice, for me. I don't think I've ever come across such a storming debut single in my lifetime before. 'Just Dance' ran it closer than I ever imagined another debut single would, in all honesty. But what a statement with this song. A lot of people will argue that she hasn't bested it since, and that's fair, but I remember the whole hysteria surrounding the song like it was just yesterday! I remember the controversy surrounding her being in a school uniform. I remember watching the video for the first time and thinking... wow. My dad was so excited to show me the song!

Just a STORMING pop single. wub.gif

There's a few others I prefer (Just Dance, Genie) but it's without a doubt the most iconic debut anything ever. wub.gif

I suppose Genie in a Bottle might not have made it because technically it's not her debut, given she released Reflection before it?

I'm more concerned that Wannabe is nowhere to be seen thinking.gif

One of my favourite songs - never, ever sounds old. I remember hearing it for the first time in primary school, reacting negatively to her voice like "ew who is this croaky bitch." WHO KNEW (not me.)

I KNOW. If there was ever an iconic debut song and Sound Of The Underground ofcourse..

At the same thing, very deserving for BOTM. I know the word iconic is thrown around way too much, but BOTM definitely deserves that title. From the song to the video, rarely was there an artist who made such an impact with a debut.

Great choice for their #1, but they're missing some great classics, and I'm having to side eye some of their choices in the top10...

Totally deserved! I'm struggling to think of another debut that can match it in quality, hype and promotion.

I still consider this her best, although she has plenty of songs that come close too.
