Is this the most annoying song ever recorded?
But when some totally complete moronic DJ plays it for a full dancefloor, I agree with you.
in Berlin in 2003.
I can't remember who the DJ was who was playing, but he finished up his set with 7 Nation Army. And then the next guy up straight after STARTED his set with 7 Nation Army - obviously he had a set in mind and got it fucked up by the guy beforehand and didn't have time to change it. All DJ's thought they were 'being eclectic' for about 6 months there with that song...
its great. if this is the most annoying record you've ever heard, you've been extremely lucky
but during the two or three months that it was the only thing that any music channel, radio station or clubnight dj played, it certainly seemed so.
how to begin answering that. I don't like it.
designed to imply my hyperbolic blinkered liking of the song.
Soundtracked my final year at uni and got me through my write-my-dissertation-in-three-days experiment
Death row pen pal?
so good in fact i heard some band called SOCIAL PROTEST covered it...
JAG. but what would I know. I'm new here.
just found the thread detailing your EP. Fair. I'm glad I don't have a copy of my first band trying to play muscle museum!
is the most annoying song ever recorded
I genuinely don't see how anyone, even if they didn't like it, could find it the most annoying song ever recorded.
but it is despicable and repulsive in most ways.
It's like one amazing riff at the start, then it's the same amazing riff but LOUDER then there's an AMAZING guitar solo. What's not to like?
generally just harrass me. I dislike everything about them, and therefore i dislike this song. This one wins my most hated TWS song purely on the fact that it's been forced into my ear canals, what i suspect is, a triple figured number of times.
I can see why people enjoy them, but for me they make ears bleed.
but it sure did get raped by overzealous playing.
there is an element of hyperbole here, I would say it's almost literally impossible in a world of Crazy Frogs and Coheed & Cambria's that this could possibly be the most annoying song you've ever heard.
Then again, I can't fathom how anyone could not enjoy the White Stripes, so I'm not the best judge of this.
but you can avoid the crazy frog and coheed and cambria- just don't watch MTV hits and MTV two respectively.
This White Stripes shit got EVERYWHERE. it was on every radio station, every music TV channel, every TV show, every club, every rock night. it's gotten to the point where Trentemøller's bassist was playing it over MINIMAL TECHNO on saturday. wtf?!?!?
I avoided the crazy frog happily but chavvy kids on busses were doing impressions of jack white all the time. Then there were those singing jack white dolls, jack white on kids t-shirts, constant adverts for jack white ring tones, it was madness.
over whether Jack White writes better tunes than that toilet brush headed momo out of Coheed & Cambria? I just want to check that this IS what you're suggesting.
I once had an argument with an Amrican who contended that Chinese was the native language of Australia, and I'm having a flashback to that right now for some reason.
Now, let's all have a nice relaxing listen to track 13 of C&C's 'Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV, Vol. 1: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness' - The Willing Well II: From Fear Through The Eyes of Madness'
Uh, yeah....that's better
This is the stuff. Feel the fury....
wait til you hear parts 3 & 4: The Willing Well III: Apollo II Telling The Truth and The Willing Well IV: The Final Cut to come.
I stand corrected: 7 Nation Army's 2 minutes of minimal genius has nothing on this pile of non-ridiculous, non-embarrassing blues hammer epics
but that's not The White Stripes' fault.
Seems an odd choice for cover anyway, as for most of the song at least one person doesn't have anything to play.
Heard it the other day.
Another truly repulsive version.
The original, on the other hand, is superb.
is in fact 'Girls Just Wanna Have fun'. irritating wailing voice soundtracks flushing of feminism down the toilet. Reprehensible in pretty much every was a song can be.
Dum dum dumdumdum dum ... dum ...
DUM. DUM. DUM. DUM. DUM. DUM. DUM. DUM.
What's not to like?
What about 'Dancing in the Moonlight'.
It's great when used for a footie chant too.
