POLL: The Bottom Ten

Postby Brett Eugene Ralph on Fri Feb 25, 2005 7:43 pm

Everybody's got a Top 10 songs list. But I find that, while my favorites rotate on a semi-daily basis, the songs that I loathe have true staying power.

So what songs make you want to punch the closest person to you when they catch you by surprise? Here are mine:

1. "American Pie" by Don McLean
2. "Piano Man" by Billy Joel
3. "Who Will Save Your Soul" by Jewel
4. "Hotel California" by The Eagles
5. "What's Up" by 4 Non-Blondes
6. "Breakfast at Tiffany's" by Deep Blue Something
7. "I Just Want to Feel Your Love Tonight" by The Outfield
8. "Shiny Happy People" by REM
9. "Redneck Woman" by Gretchen Wilson
10. "Tom Sawyer" by Rush

i'm in a bit of a rush so i wills just submit my number one.

"little miss cant be wrong" - Spin Doctors

man do i hate the song and the band.

for the past 4 months i've been without a car, so often times i rely on my friends for rides. unfortunatly my friends have the absolute worst taste in music, im constantly bombarded by shit from the 90's that i had thought would be forever forgotten.

It's happend now, at least three times.

the drunken car ride home from the bars.

car packed with people.

all singing along to this song from hell.

oh the horror, for i am surrounded by assholes.

yet i am to look like the asshole, because i do not sing along.

Let me explain again



Fuck all of you rush haters, every last one of you.

Geddy's torturted cat vocals- love it
neil pearts overly complex drumming- love it
leifsons wall of effected guitars- love it
the stupid l ron hubbard meets ayn raynd lyrics- love it
really bad album covers- love it

i think rush before signals is one of the greatest bands ever.

there is no sarcasm involved here.

you can take your cool indie rock and shove it up your moms ass.

It's so cool to hate rush.

So, fuck all of you.


I have spoken, and for the record,

I love rush. (pre signals)

Fuck all of you rush haters, every last one of you.
Fuck all of you rush haters, every last one of you.
Fuck all of you rush haters, every last one of you.
Fuck all of you rush haters, every last one of you.
Fuck all of you rush haters, every last one of you.
Fuck all of you rush haters, every last one of you.
Every last one of you fuckers

Just for the record, this song is called simply "Your Love". You know, the "Josie's on a vacation far away..." song. And the line is "I just want to use your love tonight..."

Anyway, there are far worse songs than this song (and many of the other songs on this list). For example, how does any top ten list of bad songs exclude these two monstrosities?

"The Curly Shuffle" by Jump 'n The Saddle

Any 5 songs by Led Zeppelin, take your pick.
Any 5 songs by the Dave Matthews Band, take your pick.
If we were to post the bottom 20, I would add
any 10 songs by the Eagles, take your pick.

Wherever I am, be it having sex on a beautiful lady or being knighted by her majesty the Queen if I hear that Crash Test Dummies song (mm mm etc) I will get up and walk out. Possibly spitting in peoples faces along the way.

Of course it's not likely that I'd hear it in those 2 situations but still.

And, to a marginally lesser extent, Extreme "More Than Words".

Oh and that fucking atrocious "party" version of Hey Baby (you know, the song from Dirty Dancing).

I hate entirely too much music to make a coherent or accurate list, but I can say without hesitation that my least favorite song of all time is that 80s "barbie girl" song.

I don't know which one-hit-wonder "performed" it, but it was easily the worst moment in the history of american pop music. And that's saying something. It was the closest our nation ever came to being infiltrated by euro-pop, the horrid kind that sounds like a test pattern on a Casio keyboard with auto-tuned lyrics repeated ad nauseum for 3 minutes at a time.

So many terrible songs mentioned already. I almost regrett reading this thread. That Barbie song is now stuck in my head. Some other notable terrible songs are:
"I would do anything for love" Meatloaf (including sing this song)
"Red Red Wine" UB40
"I Wanna be a Cowboy" Boys don't Cry
"Footloose" Kenny Loggins
"Do the Russians love their children too?" Sting
"We didn't start the fire" Billy Joel
"Achy Breacky heart" Bill Ray Cyrus
"Don't worry be happy" Bobby McFerin

Having sex on a beautiful lady. . .


Or on an average one, it makes no difference.

While this was probably stated to cause an obvious confrontation, I will calmly explain that this statement is, in fact, incorrect.

By submitting the idea that "ANY 5 SONGS" are applicable, you grossly overexaggerate your filter.

For example, by using your criteria, you include the break in the Led Zeppelin song "In My time of dying," which is quite enjoyable and, as they say, kick ass.
But I digress. Please continue with the squirrel circuit semantic debate.

Gosh, I couldn't agree more with the Rush fan above. Probably just for the reasons the haters hate it, I eat up the stuff. It's cool that a band would have so little regard for what was considered "tasteful" or "stylish" at the time. Led Zeppelin records are generally better than 95% of "indie" records, too, to me that's almost common sense.

But yeah, that "Barbie" shit is truly subhuman--!

I'm not sure that dissing "Tom Sawyer" qualifies one as a "Rush hater." "Working Man" is a monolithic piece of ROCK that I thoroughly enjoy whenever it comes on the radio, but "Tom Sawyer" has bummed me out since I first heard it.

And, for the record ("Working Man" notwithstanding), I totally fucking hate Rush.

1. There's that one song by the New Radicals "don't..give..up..you got the music in yooouuuu." And the part where he checks "....beck and hanson, courtney love and marilyn manson" and then rhymes it with something about kicking their "ass in, in their mansion" or some such nonsense.

Total eunuch music.


2. Billy joel's "i go to extremes". i wake up with this in my head and wish for to die.

3. One time, signore Bradley R. Weissenberger say to me: "Glenn Fry's the Heat is On, is maybe worst song ever?" and I think about it and then I think: "yes. is maybe worst song ever."

I think some more.

Now the question came up earlier this week was:
is the Heat is On worse than All she Wants to do is Dance?



I'm not sure. both are so bad. Especially when the man says

"all she wants to do is dance!!!!!!































and make romance!"

Tim M. got me thinking about the stupid hackiness of this song one time. I've since gotten very hung up on this song, and I spend an inordinate amount of time contemplating just how bad it is.

Thanks a lot, Tim M.

the Heat is On
All she Wants to do is Dance

these two are right at the front of the crap class for me.

Nowever, there are a couple of other tunes that could hurt a dentist drill's ears.

"We Built This City" by Starship
That horrible christmas song by Paul Mccartney.
Mick Jagger doing "Dancing In the Streets", with Bowie I believe.

Anything Rod Stewart has done since 1980.
The entire John Cougar Mellencrap songbook.



Axl Rose's voice alone can peal truck stop bathroom paint.

There are so many to choose from. Are we not lucky?
