Info about song
"B.O.B." (or "Bombs Over Baghdad") is a single from OutKast's 2000 album "Stankonia". The song features the Morris Brown College Gospel Choir. The inspiration for the song came when André 3000 was in a London hotel room and overheard a news report about "bombs over Baghdad". While a failure upon release as a single due to its mixture of hip-hop, jungle, electronic, alternative and soul not being able to blend in with the rotation of any radio format in the United States, it has been named as one of the best singles of all time by many publications and critics. Reception In 2008, it was ranked #23 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop. "B.O.B." was named the #2 song in the "500 Greatest Songs Since You Were Born" list in 2006 by Blender, second only to Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean".
