    Cherry Pie by Warrant? Even Jani Lane didn't like it....

    I guess I just wasn’t subjected to it prior. I could happily go the rest of my days without hearing it again

    Baker Street by Gerry Rafferty (RIP). Not a knock on him, but I hate hate hate that song. Starts off with this incredibly tense and epic sax lead, then goes into a soft and depressing vocal. I get especially pissed off as soon as that transition from sax to voice kicks in. The song never lives up to the intro. It also doesn't help that they played it twice an hour on the hour all summer long when I was working in a sweaty fabrication shop. Really hard to bend metal properly when that stupid song is playing... LOL.

    And just about anything by Hall & Oates.

    Any cover done by Axel Rose - especially Knocking on Heaven's Door.

    One of those strange cases where his real name is quite normal. Usually, people change from weird names to normal ones. Like Kirk Douglas or Alice Cooper. But this guy was born Arnold Dorsey. Geez.

    I thought this hit a new low a few years ago.

    Good Lord, Falstaff! I think that Friday song just gave me a brain tumour. It was like combining "Yummy, yummy, yummy" with an Englebert Whatshisdink tune.

    Now I have to find where the wife hid my brain bleach.

    Hard to imagine that song got airplay...but it did. Daddy was rich with a bad ratio of brains to wallet.

    I thought Slash did a great job on the SSB before a game some years back. Anyone that performs that song on live TV has got to be nervous, I don't care who you are.

    I also recall a member of, I think, the Lakers, singing it acapella.

    If people would only sing it straight, and not give us "their personal rendition". There's no yodeling in the SSB.

    Then, there was the Roseanne version.

    Whoever ok'd Roseanne Barr to perform the SSB should have lost their job and never worked in TV again.
