Okay there is already a thread for horrible songs by great artists, so I thought I'd start this one... I'm sure there are TONNES more that I can't think of right now but ones I was reminded of recently:

Turning Japanese by The Vapors - man I can't stand this song especially when everyone starts singing along to it!!
Technologic by Daft Punk - I don't know if anyone would class this as song, but this is so damn annoying!
Blue by Eiffel 65 - I heard this song so many times as it was popular here for a while and it annoys the heck out of me!
Beep Beep by Sonny Shroyer - just plain annoying

Anyway, like I said, there is probably a lot more that I can't remember right now but those are the ones that came to mind straight away.

Really? I think that's a great song like all of Nevermind the Bollocks Smiley

If you wanna hear genuine crap head on to youtube.com and type 'Aqua barbie girl'. Beware! The crappiness of that song might make you develope a serious drug addiction just to kill the pain...

Ah, don't get me started on NMTB. To this listener, it is a failed heavy metal effort.

That 'itchy bitchy heart' thing. Oh, wait,  it's 'Achy, Breaky Heart" by Billy Ray Cyrus.
And another one is 'My Toot Toot', sung by anyone in the mid Eighties.

The Black Eyed Peas - Let's Get Retarded (They had to change it to Let's Get it Started for it to be played on radio. Fergie's solo stuff is also horrendous. I can't believe how her stuff moves so many units, I figure it either brainwashes people or people buy her stuff for the pictures of her in the album art and throw out the cd.)

Terry Jacks - Seasons in the Sun

Dan Hill - Sometimes When We Touch

Sum 41 - How Could This Happen to Me

Daniel Powter - Had a Bad Day

Sarah Mclaughlin - Stupid

Madonna's whole discography, especially the last few. What really pissed me off was that recent one, Dancefloor stole away all the minimal amount of attention Kate Bush's comeback got in North America.

The Sex Pistols are alright as far as I'm concerened but I prefer the Ramones, they were alot more fun and didn't take themselves so seriously.

'Late Again' by Stealer's Wheel. It never fails to put me to sleep, somewhere in the middle of the song. Awful.

'A Lover's Concerto', by Ms. Miller. Nuff' said.

'Tiptoe Through The Tulips', by Tiny Tim.

'Bohemian Rhapsody', Queen. This is for me the anti-Good-Vibrations, the work of Satan. Sorry to prolly offend some here, but the truth prevails.

Anything by the Osmonds. Yech.

Who is Michael Bouble actually meant to appeal to anyway?, people who think Barry Manilow is a bit too hardcore and edgy?

Hehe... 'Feelings' indeed is a prime candidate for 'worst song ever wherever since the Big Bang'.

Compared to the Ramones, perhaps. Sex Pistols appeal a bit more arty, IMO.

I agree. I was there at the time and remember interviews. Rotten really liked to vent a kind of nihilism in interviews that went beyond jokey cynicism or irony, or the type of opportunistic glee he shows nowadays. It's best understood when going from the Pistols to the first four P.i.L. albums (hey, notice that small 'i' in P.i.L.?). Compared to that, the Ramones were a surf/fun/punk band par excellence. At any rate, the ghoul/horror/fun/jest/B-movie thing was done way better by the Americans all the time, see The Cramps and so on.

Woah. You put Queen in the not-so-great artists category next to Tiny Tim and the Osmonds? I could see how Bohemian Rhapsody annoys some people (although I think it's a great, creative piece of music with a nice slice of humor thrown in), but Queen's catalog has plenty of gems next to the crappy/questionable stuff.  Paging Luther...

Modern Folk Quartet - This Could Be the Night (though Brian's v-n was fairly fine)
The Everly Brothers - Cathy's Clown (just no)


This is a tragedy.

Agreed, both are american classics.

And production aside, Id so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591
