Nominate one song each - ideally it should be in tortuously poor taste
My choice =
Pink - So What
Throw in Come On Eileen by Dexy's Midnight Runners and you have the playlist from hell
But I hate it with an undying passion!
but gold has some charm
What was worse was that a ton of songs sampled it/ripped it off as if it was any good. Eugh.
Worst Irish band of the last decade. Worst song of the last decade.
would be unbearable
ma numma nah
And much preferable to po-faced, earnest awfulness like Razorlight, Bumford and Chums, The Script etc.
I like Candle in the Wind! People only hate it now because of the Diana version, which is obviously shit.
you know the one
she is shit
Still makes me shudder decades later.
jeremey spoake in cleass today, fucking pleb
Sounds like a mashup of Mumford and Sons and Calvin Harris.
It is just a shit EDM genre-bend.
Don't Stop Believing, both versions.
i truly fucking despise that song with a burning passion!
Presidents of the USA - Lump
was the one that immediately sprung to mind.
But I've not heard it for ages so I'm ambivalent toward it now. Nothing, absolutely nothing, will ever convince me that Madness have any redeeming qualities so take your pick from any of their most irritating songs. Baggy Trousers stands out as especially horrible.
Looking forward to listening to this
Green Day make me sick to my stomach.
I have to turn the radio off. Sorry.
There's a lot worse out there.
That one about her 'lovely lady lumps' is A1 fucking atrocious
Thought it was a parody the first time I heard it, so bad. Also that Los Campesinos one with the post rock/touch my cock rhyming couplet.
'la da dee la da da'
Never seen such a wrong answer in all my life.
I mean, I thought we were in agreement that late 90s/early 00s radio Rock was utter shit. Surely, of all the artists from that era, Blink 182 is not the exception?
Infact no, the majority was shit but there were a lot of gems. Blink 182 were/are great.
By a country mile
Also DISlike intensely
Colr Me Badd - I Wanna Sex You Up
R Kelly - I Believe I Can Fly
Boyz II Men - End Of The Road
Elton John - Made In England
Minnie Ripperton - Loving You
Minnie Ripperton, on the other hand, is fantastic.
I Believe I Can Fly is amazing, pal
I hate it.
They go straight through Me like nails on a blackboard
Made even worse by all the wobbly voice singing
but Loving You is still an abomination to music for my my ears.
managed to make the word 'door' have three syllables.
ever since watching this video of the mighty Teen Cthulhu's last ever show
Sorry, and I'm a Lennon fan, but fuck that fucking song.
Some great, great songs.
u have dunne
t & prope
Only actually heard it twice, but been utterly astounded both times at how utterly thick it is.
the musical equivalent of an annoying child going 'nyeh nyeh nyeh nyeh nyeh' all day long
Closely followed by Love Shack by the B-52s
Especially Love Shack!
I detest that Christmas one, but I reckon it would have to be one of her cover versions. Endless Love... no: that abomination she made of Harry Nilssen's Without You is the worst. Hateful, vocal-gymnastic, money-grabbing, emotion-killing bilge
Dancing In The Moonlight
100% earworm nightmare
Nelly - Dilemma
Artful Dodger ft Craid David - Re-Rewind (Bo Selecta)
Reynolds Girls - I'd Rather Jack
Kylie Minogue - I Should Be So Lucky
The absolute nadir of popular music. The only consolation provided by its existence is that it's surely all uphill from now on.
One of the most embarrassing pieces of shit I ever saw. Gives all the absolutely amazingly brilliant older episodes a tinge of melancholy, as if they're all of them unaware of what's lurking round the corner like the Swamp/Cher monster from Mulholland Drive
I don't think I could possibly hate anything more than I hate that song.
A man of limited talent who ripped off a bunch of generally decent songs. And got awards for it
it just has no redeeming features at all, it was so insipid it even made UK garage and Craig David sound exciting.
a horrible cynical banal dirge from a once great band
TLC - Scrubs
Pretty much two of the most cuntish songs in existence.
that somehow manages to be the worst. commendable in a sense
if you meant to reply to Puds or me.
I ride & die for No Scrubs
and I used to think you were so butch...!
No. Really. TLC is bad, No Scrubs is bad, you are bad and you should feel bad /truthbomb
I have no idea what a 'jeb' is, but I remain UNREPENTANT.
Not only is it dreadful, but I worked in bars/clubs in Dundee where they'd play it 3 or 4 times a night and then I'd have to serve the snotty little gobshites who made the fucking thing without punching their pus.
for four days in a row, and then going to a disco in the middle of town smelling like a combination of arse and Primula Cheese Spread. Why would anyone brag about that in a song or otherwise? Jesus christ, have a wash and change your clothes, you fucking mongs.
Not just the worst song but the worst thing in existence
will always be an ASDA Smart Price Aslan in my eyes.
*hurriedly leaves thread*
I'd never heard that before. Listened to 30 seconds of it on SarcasticFringehead mate's playlist (linked below). It really is the worst thing in the world.
It prompted a re-evaluation. The lyrics themselves aren't actually that bad the song kind of tells a story: wants to be a rock star > becomes a rockstar > it is not actually all that fun > actually it is still quite fun and better than the lives you lead.
The production is pure AIDs though.
In fact I may start a thread about it.

Ride on time by Black Box
That womans voice is second only to the saxophone from the animal hospital theme tune in terms of vulgar noises
Nobody has ever been more wrong than you.
but you don't need to pretend, come on
owing money to the money you owe
But thats in my top 5 favourite songs ever.
like so much nu-metal. But that might just be nostalgia talking
This track was okay to meh at first, Normally If i don't like something i won't listen to it but this was pretty much impossible to avoid even though i don't listen to the radio and it gets annoyingly stuck in your head, so I would much rather listen to a screaming baby drag forks down a chalkboard than that repetitive shrill whistling.
Or anything by Emili Sande, but especially Clown
that used to be on a cd compilation i had and the first 10 seconds were enough to send me into a cringe aneurysm. and this was on the same compilation as 'In the Shadows' by the Rasmus too. Hhahaha now you have that song stuck in your head
The bit where he sings "your face is just beaming" makes me want to throw up, then eat my puke just so the sound of me throwing it up again obscures Hucknall's smug voice.
'Smoke a fag, put it out...'. Fuck off.
It's all a joke, including ^that line. Maybe not the greatest song Supergrass ever made but still great
I always turn it off or get out of the room before I find out which it will be.
Alright by Supergrass is the worst one?
I don't believe you.
especially the bit where multi-millionaire tax evader Bonio guilt trips the listener
We all fight for his line at karaoke. Awesome.
The Spindoctors - Two Princes
The Cranberries - Zombie
firmly within my top 5 most hated songs
Especially What's Up
I just checked it on YouTube to remind myself how unutterably terrible it is. Hasn't lost any of its impact.
And excellent call on Zombie, jesus The Cranberries were so fucking annoying.
Two Princes is great. So much so that Bamos and I are singing it at Danthw(?)'s night, apparently.
But then I also liked Reef.
The Rembrants - I'll Be There For You (Theme from Friends)
Deep Blue Something - Breakfast at Tiffany's
is nothing sacred?
(the other two are truly shite though)
But Breakfast At Tiffany's TOTALLY belongs on this list. Soul-crushingly awful.
get up and fuck off out of my face you shitty-haired meffs
and this, Korn unplugged featuring The cure :(
awful, awful song
Really wish he had a shit filter
has gotta be up there, only thing against is that it's not quite *evil* enough - it's made by some gormless kids with a penchant for objectifying women, some godawful tunes and the world's most annoying vocal mannerisms
in terms of *evil*, the Fast Food Rockers' Fast Food Song, shamelessly glitzing up a Cub Scout standard into Belial's mantra itself, might be the worst
worse than doing anne widdecombe bareback
The Hoosiers - Worried About Ray
Hard-Fi - Cash Machine
Muse - Starlight
Amongst lots of other garbage.
Makes me want to hurt people
I know we've already had a shout for the 'phonics but let's be honest, they've committed some total attrocities in the name of music over the years. This counts as both one of said attrocities and also manages to be one of the most simultaneously unintentionally hilarious AND excruciatingly whiney pieces of shit ever committed to tape. Take a tip from Falco, boys. If someone gives you a shitty review, write them a nice letter. Don't spend thousands recording a shitty song about being butthurt.
I'll probably get shouted down for this, but I HATE this song and most other music Ben Folds has excreted.
Pipes Of Peace, Ebony & Ivory, and above all else Mull Of Cunting Kintyre.
Even Cotton Eyed Joe?
Robert Miles- Children
Staind- It's Been a While
Slade- Merry Christmas Everybody (happily never hear this again)
Toploader- Dancing in the Moonlight
D:Ream- Things Can only get Better (because it now seems to represent the opposite post-Blair)
Rednex- Cotton Eye Joe
GOTYE- Somebody that I used to Know
Just typing that in has made me see the video for it my mind, and that in turn has made me want to stick an axe in my head.
A horrible song and created a monster in its aftermath. A grim listen.
it makes me want to hit my head against the wall until i am stunned? sure
because it's one of those songs that kind of bridged the gap to alt rock for me growing up
*Sound of Side Show Bob standing on a rake*
and supposedly the best one:
Where Flo Rida shows his sensitive side.
In fact, pretty much every Flo Rida song qualifies.
That intro riff and the singing. Arggghh. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmVn6b7DdpA
or something. It's just well skanky.
awful things ever dispersed from a human beings oral area.
Stuck in the middle with you
The legacy of that song for me is Sheffield Uni Pop Tarts, the part where I was way too drunk, music got boring, I hadn't pulled and decided to go home.
I know it's a credible song and all that, but that noise in it makes me feel physically ill and I have to leave the room when it comes from. The frequency makes me feel like my ears are going to explode!
A lot of songs repeat a line with "OHH" in the background like this.
It's bloody annoying.
Jessie J - Do It Like A Dude
Worst. Song. Ever.
Avicii vs Nicky Romero- I Could Be The One To Set You Free
Dean Friedman- Lucky Stars
Snow Patrol- Open Your Eyes (repeating one line eight times? COME ON.)
Alesana- Ambrosia (I used to like this, shamefully)
