If you want keep up with the hip kids, you're going to have to know Unk; his song "2 Step" is the second hottest ringtone, according to the latest Billboard ringtone chart.

In the grand tradition of songs like "Macarena" and "The Twist," there's a specific dance to do with "2 Step."

"Take 2 Steps To The Left/ Now Take 2 Steps To The Right/ Now Bring It Back/ Bring It Back/ Hey I Made Ya'll Walk It Out."

It seems simple enough, but after watching the video, I'm convinced I could never pull this thing off without looking ridiculous.

As for the rest of the chart, Rascal Flatts' "What Hurts the Most" retained the top spot for the second week in a row. The lovely Beyonce's "Irreplaceable" is third, and Nickelback's "Rockstar" moved up to the fourth spot.

I can't help but smile when I see 50 Cent's "Candy Shop" dropping to ninth place. I've said it before and I'll say it again: that song is horrible and is a cringe-worthy ringtone. It's nice to see "Super Mario Brothers Theme" hop past it this week.
