Glee‘s third season has already birthed quite a number of awesome mash-ups, including Adele’s “Someone Like You” mixed with “Rumour Has It”, and Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor” mixed with Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive”. Here comes another one: the kids in New Directions are ingeniously combining Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera’s “Moves Like Jagger” with The Rolling Stones’ 1968 single “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”. It’s “Jagger” meets Jagger! Just be grateful Cher Lloyd’s “Swagger Jagger” is left out of this. Listen below!

In Billboard’s eyes, it’s still ultimately album sales that count the most (understandably so — sorry, Artist With The Most Number One Hits). But we’ve all pretty much shifted to a shuffle/singles world. Will the 00′s be remembered as the last decade that albums “mattered”? We’re nervous about the future — vomit on our sweater already — but excited.
See who trailed Eminem on the big list, and look who followed Mick & Keith on Billboard’s list of this decade’s (and probably the previous decade’s) biggest tours as the industry magazine cleans out the rest of its closet after the jump.
5. Alicia Keys
6. 50 Cent
8. Britney Spears
9. Destiny’s Child
This list makes little sense to us when we first go over it. Nickelback? Nelly?! Not exactly critical darlings that are still being buzzed about anymore, but just goes to show just how crazy successful they were for a brief amount of time. At least Em logically lands on top, since he’s maintained his following from the start to the finish of the decade, even when taking a three year absence from making music.
1. Rolling Stones
4. Bruce Springsteen
5. Elton John
6. Celine Dion
7. Dave Matthews Band
8. Kenny Cheney
9. Bon Jovi
10. Billy Joel
The Rolling Stones topped the list with a total gross of $869,471,325 over the course of 264 shows (190 of them sold out). It’s interesting to note that not one of Billboard’s Top Artists of the Decade ranked as biggest touring act. In fact, most of these artists who banked the most by touring earned their notoriety in previous decades. It’s clearly indicative just how long you need to build a fan base that would go see you no matter what album you put out (or don’t).
Check out the full lists at Billboard.com, where you can also check out what some of your favorite (or most hated) artists chose as their top music picks of the Noughties. Because the best person to ask about the last ten years of music is an American Idol alum who just entered the cultural zeitgeist six months ago.
Haha, Coldplay. Oh, you Brits.
