That was my pick, but glad you already made that choice.
Just looking at this thing gave me Vietnam flashbacks, and I wasn't even alive back then!
Looks like Yummy, Yummy, Yummy got the most mentions so far. It's not the lyrics are so inane, but the track is sung is such a self-depricating style as if reading the words were nauseating enough. Now strange enough, Artie Resnick, one of the co-writers, is also responsible for "Under the Boardwalk" and "Good Lovin'". Go Figure! However, Joey Levine, the partner in this musical conspiracy is a Schlock Pop, Bubble Gum music guru and composer of popular advertising jingles such as "The Bud's for You!" Another ear worm composer-genius.
"I love Rock 'n' Roll"; the Joan Jett version. That absolutely SUCKS!
"Hotel California" was pretty good at first, but like so many others (Stairway, Free Bird, Won't get fooled again), it's been waaay overplayed...
I was listening to an interview with veteran rock journalist Lisa Robinson and she was saying that of all the acts she's spent time with over 40 years, Tears for Fears was the only band she simply disliked. A bunch of jerks, I guess.
I've heard that sax riff a million times in isolation, but wasn't actually familiar with the whole song. I heard it for the first time (that I can recall) last summer and was amused to no end that that sax break was married to such a pathetic meek vocal. What a mismatch.
I can't give one song that dubious distinction.
I don't mind Sugar Sugar. It's cute, it's kind of catchy and hell, Andy Kim follows me on Twitter. I have no idea why. I haven't released anything in years. No idea how he even found me but Sugar Sugar is ok in my books.
Louie Louie on the other hand... ugh.
Rockin' Robin by The Jackson 5, e.g. Michael Jackson. I used to punch in 5 plays on the Jukebox at Shakey's Pizza Parlor just before leaving!
A buddy and I used to do the same thing with the extended version of "I Love a Rainy Night"!
Most of the songs listed herein as worst are among my favorites, almost worthy of a compilation MP3! The following are some of the most ANNOYING songs to me:
Rockin' Robin, Ring My Bell, Colorado Sunrise (3Oh!3), Slowly Turning Into You (White Stripes), The Hustle, One Tin Soldier, practically anything by Sly & the Family Stone.
"Hot Blooded" by Foreigner. The cheesiest, pseudo-macho, utterly lameass drivel ever committed to tape.
Wow! You guys are just scratching the surface here. Most of these songs I wouldn't even categorize as "Bad" -- they are more "Meh!" or "Frickin' Irritating!"
If you want to plumb the depths of Badness you have to take a trip across the pond and sample some Surrender Monkey music.
I might end up getting banned for posting this song....
A seriously annoying disco group, who everyone quickly learned were all a bunch of "pickle puffers":
Oh, that's a great call. That song makes me want to stab my ears with a rusty icepick.
I kind of like Michael Doucet and Cajun Brew's version.
Kara for Kids is horrible and it’s on Fox News Sirius about every 5 minutes along with Patriot Software but John Basedows Fitness Made Simple still is worse.
Being from the Boston Area, the Bird runs in our blood. Larry is King well Prince now that TB12 took over and our favorite Rhode Islander "Peter" kills it often.
Hands down it has to be “Life” by Des’Ree ... featuring weighty lyrics examining important social issues, such as:
I don't want to see a ghost,
It's a sight that I fear most
I'd rather have a piece of toast
And who can forget the emotionally charged Chorus refrain:
Life, oh life, oh life, oh life,
Doo, doot doot dooo.
The fact that this song exists (and someone got paid to record it!) genuinely makes me angry.
