I got kicked out of the "It's a small world" ride at Disney World once with like 10 of my friends.  It was our high school graduation trip... they told our HS to never come back.

That is the worst song ever by a mainstream musician/band in the history of recorded music, bar none.

It invalidates Paul McCartney's entire solo career, and very nearly invalidates the entire Beatles catalog by association.

It is impossible to take Paul McCartney seriously either as a musician or a human being after listening to that song.

My office pumps Christmas music into the sh*tters from Thanksgiving to New Year's, and by some cruel trick of the Gods, my morning bowel-voiding biorhythms have been synced to the playing of that song.

I've been keeping a similar list - classic rock songs that should never, ever, ever be played on the radio. Because of my age, I'm not terribly bothered by songs like Stairway To Heaven or Hotel California or Freebird. I'm more sick of songs that are done to death in commercials, TV shows, movies, etc. Come on, classic rock stations. You have a huge catalog to choose from. Nobody is interested anymore when these are played on the air... if you channel surf on cable TV for 45 minutes, you're guaranteed to hear at least one of these:

1. Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama
2. Kiss - Rock N Roll All Night
3. George Thorogood - Bad To The Bone
4. Steppenwolf - Born To Be Wild
5. Bruce Springsteen - Born In The USA
6. John Mellencougar - Jack & Diane
7. The Who - Who Are You

A couple of these songs are decent, and just suffer from being overplayed, which isn't the songs fault.

Others are truly awful on the first listen. But really, the hardest part is narrowing this list down to just 10.

Funny because I just read this yesterday - Link

Burnett was able to secure the rights to the songs by Kenny Rogers and the Gipsy Kings and also added tracks by Captain Beefheart, Moondog and the rights to a relatively obscure Bob Dylan song called "The Man in Me".[42] However, he had a tough time securing the rights to Townes Van Zandt's cover of the Rolling Stones' "Dead Flowers", which plays over the film's closing credits. Former Stones manager Allen Klein owned the rights to the song and wanted $150,000 for it. Burnett convinced Klein to watch an early cut of the film and remembers, "It got to the part where the Dude says, 'I hate the farkin' Eagles, man!' Klein stands up and says, 'That's it, you can have the song!' That was beautiful".[42][44] Burnett was going to be credited on the film as "Music Supervisor" but asked his credit to be "Music Archivist" because he "hated the notion of being a supervisor; I wouldn't want anyone to think of me as management"

I will defend this choice, if only because it literally is inescapable if you watch movies/TV with any sort of regularity.

7. The Who - Who Are You


CSB:  I used to get called in about 4 times a year to take a survey of songs for classic rock stations.  A group of about 50 would sit in a conference room of a local hotel and they would play a snippet of a song and we would rate them from 1 to 10 or from extremely dislike to like.  We'd sit throught 100 song snippets and they would pay us $40 each for about an hours work.  Every song on your list was one of the ones they played.  Sometimes a collective groan could be heard from the group if a really bad one came on.  And you would be surprised at the songs people would seem to really like.  This lasted for about 3 years and then they stopped calling me.  So when you hear crappy over played music on your local station you can only blame your neighbors.  But don't blame me, I tried to upvote the stuff I never heard and downvote the over played crap.

Exactly.

The list was "songs you never need to hear again"... not necessarily shiatty songs, although many of them are shiatty. But every time someone needs a shallowly deep moment in TV or Movies, Hallelujah gets dusted off and thrown into the soundtrack. It needs to be stopped.

sigdiamond2000: God Is My Co-Pirate: SIIIIIMPLY HAAAAAVING A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS TIME!

That is the worst song ever by a mainstream musician/band in the history of recorded music, bar none.

It invalidates Paul McCartney's entire solo career, and very nearly invalidates the entire Beatles catalog by association.

It is impossible to take Paul McCartney seriously either as a musician or a human being after listening to that song.


Seconded. ( although "We Built This City" by Starship comes pretty close to taking the title, as listed above in this thread...)

I was running on something like 2 hours of sleep in 2 1/2 days(With no chemical 'assistance' to stay awake, so I was a little punchy, to say the least.... I kept dozing off in between the rooms in the nice, dark tunnel, only to be blasted back awake by that farking goddam song... I was too out of it to even consider smashing things, I just thought it was a bad dream.

List definitely fails without that on there, and fails by including both Thriller and Don't Stop Believin', we all know how this works by now, Your Blog Sucks, TFA of TFA is a clueless hipster douchebag, and so on...

I wanted Chicago's "Along Comes A Woman" as her song to walk into the sanctuary... but it was voted down :-/ and we used "Ave Maria" instead. It worked out.
 
2013-01-30 11:36:17 AM  

clkeagle: I've been keeping a similar list - classic rock songs that should never, ever, ever be played on the radio. Because of my age, I'm not terribly bothered by songs like Stairway To Heaven or Hotel California or Freebird. I'm more sick of songs that are done to death in commercials, TV shows, movies, etc. Come on, classic rock stations. You have a huge catalog to choose from. Nobody is interested anymore when these are played on the air... if you channel surf on cable TV for 45 minutes, you're guaranteed to hear at least one of these:

1. Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama
2. Kiss - Rock N Roll All Night
3. George Thorogood - Bad To The Bone
4. Steppenwolf - Born To Be Wild
5. Bruce Springsteen - Born In The USA
6. John Mellencougar - Jack & Diane
7. The Who - Who Are You


That's where satellite radio comes in handy. I actually like all of these songs, but don't need to hear them very often anymore, thanks to microwave rotation on regular radio. Between Classic Rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal and decade-themed stations(80s, 90s, etc.), I have about a dozen stations that are a button push away, and come in anywhere on the road, clear as a bell. No more 20 minute block of commercials, just in time to hear something I like for the last minute and a half of my drive(Ever finished a good song in the garage?), getting scread at by car commercials the rest of the way...

For some reason Sirius still follows a pattern, and you'll hear a song surface, play 2-3 times a day for 3 weeks, and disappear again, but the wide array of choices makes that bearable.

FirstNationalBastard: Welfare Peanut Butter: varmitydog: FirstNationalBastard : Also missing: Any version of "Hallelujah", especially in a movie or TV show.

You don't really care for music, do you?

I will defend this choice, if only because it literally is inescapable if you watch movies/TV with any sort of regularity. That POS is EVERYWHERE, being covered by everyone, and it gets grating after awhile. It's not an awful song, but it gets bad pretty quickly when you hear it so often. Pick something else, whoever has the job of picking music for shows/movies.

Exactly.

The list was "songs you never need to hear again"... not necessarily shiatty songs, although many of them are shiatty. But every time someone needs a shallowly deep moment in TV or Movies, Hallelujah gets dusted off and thrown into the soundtrack. It needs to be stopped.

bearded clamorer: One Bad Apple: Ear worm thread !


WE BUILT THIS CITY

The goddamned Science Channel is constantly running a commercial for some upcoming show,
using the music (with altered lyrics) to that farking song.
Can't grab the remote fast enough to mute that shiat.


The altered lyrics is the worst. The Science Channel commercial isn't so bad, it's actually some of the BEST re-performing I've heard. My satellite radi has little drops they play on the 80's and 90's channels were they'll start what sounds like a song you want to listen to, and then have some tone-deaf smurf do the "new" vocals that integrate then name of the channel into it. We also have a local 'We sell to anyone' used car place that does the same thing. In comparison, the 'We Built This City' sounds like a choir of angels...
 
2013-01-30 11:44:29 AM  
CSB:  I used to get called in about 4 times a year to take a survey of songs for classic rock stations.  A group of about 50 would sit in a conference room of a local hotel and they would play a snippet of a song and we would rate them from 1 to 10 or from extremely dislike to like.  We'd sit throught 100 song snippets and they would pay us $40 each for about an hours work.  Every song on your list was one of the ones they played.  Sometimes a collective groan could be heard from the group if a really bad one came on.  And you would be surprised at the songs people would seem to really like.  This lasted for about 3 years and then they stopped calling me.  So when you hear crappy over played music on your local station you can only blame your neighbors.  But don't blame me, I tried to upvote the stuff I never heard and downvote the over played crap.

I'd love a chance to do that for the local stations. But with so many of them coming under just a handful of owners in the past few years, those days are probably long behind us.

Slacker for me instead of Sirius, but yeah, it works great for work or the hobby room at home. I only hear broadcast radio during short trips in the car... it doesn't have an MP3 player jack (there is DIY kit that I'm going to grab) and its CD player doesn't have a good buffer.

My motto's always been; when it's right, it's right.
Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night.
When everything's a little clearer in the light of day.
And you know the night is always gonna be there any way.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.

Thinkin' of you's workin' up my appetite
looking forward to a little afternoon delight.
Rubbin' sticks and stones together makes the sparks ingite
and the thought of rubbin' you is getting so exciting.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.

Started out this morning feeling so polite
I always though a fish could not be caught who wouldn't bite
But you've got some bait a waitin' and I think I might try nibbling
a little afternoon delight.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.

Please be waiting for me baby when I come around.
We could make a lot of lovin' 'for the sun goes down.

It's not that it's a running gag anymore. It's just a willingness to admit you have nothing worthwhile to add in something even as basic as yelling random shiat.

However, in a move of genius I can't admit to have thought of, I knew a guy who did solo acoustic shows, exactly the kind where those prone to yelling "Freebird" were likely to show up to. He would set up his mic stand with a coffee can taped to it and a sign that read "Freebird - $100." The deal was that if you were willing to cough up a c-note then he had a version worked up for you. If not, then you needed to shut up.

It worked brilliantly. Someone would scream it. he would tap the can and that would be it. And every so often a group would pool their resources and pony it up and he would play it.

Everyone was happy.

Sirius is worth it JUST for my yearly trek down to AZ. 11 hour or so drive if you stop once or twice, but more like 15 hours with a full family.

Meatloaf's "I would do anything for love (but I won't do that)" makes me all kinds of stabby.

It's the most overblown, overproduced piece of crap that any musician will ever make. Like a cheap porn actress it pretends to climax every 15 seconds and only embarasses itself. Cheap porn actresses have more integrity, though.

From around the same time; Womack & Womack's "Teardrops". Fark that awful song and fark anyone who liked it.

Trapper439: Meatloaf's "I would do anything for love (but I won't do that)" makes me all kinds of stabby.

Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: I got kicked out of the "It's a small world" ride at Disney World once with like 10 of my friends.  It was our high school graduation trip... they told our HS to never come back.

/CSB
/But yeah that song drove us crazy so we started smashing shiat


My first year at Burning Man, someone had built a full scale replica of that ride with loud-speakers that blared hundreds of different versions of that song (in other languages, speed up, slowed down, techno-ified etc) at all hours of the day and night, and every evening  at sunset a big military truck would pull up and dozens of men dressed like commandos, except  with steel mouse ears welded to thier helmets, would herd a mob of people dressed in costumes like those in the ride, to the  stage and force them at gunpoint to perform the song several times.    Except on the last night, just after the performance a woman dressed like the runner in Apple's famous "1984" ad came running up and hurled a satchel charge into the heart of the installation, blowing it into a million pieces and then burning the shards to ash.

It was.....the single most beautiful thing I have ever seen

That's why they do it. Their actions give them filler for their site.

1) Hype something until it's old
2) Complain about the over saturation.
3) Profit!

Eliminating step one eliminates step two, and then you have to actually come up with something of substance to fill your site. That requires time, work, and effort. Screw that. Much easier to hype and complain. Self-feeding, predictable, and people keep clicking.

Except for Moonlight Feels Right. That was one of the mellowest songs of 1976. And Spiral Starecase was cool way back when.

As for other songs from that year, you can add Shannon (about some dude's dog). I also forgot to add a few other gems from the early 1970s: Playground In My Mind, Billy Don't Be A Hero, and Wildwood Weed.

I know this is going to make some people all kinds of stabby, but I have to list.

Ever been to or watched a sporting event? I will bet dollars to donuts that you heard one or all of these songs, possibly multiple times during said event. Hearing these songs over and over again is like having my ears stabbed with a pencil.

1) Welcome to the Jungle
2) Crazy Train
3) Enter Sandman
4) Anything at all by AC/DC
5) That "We READY" crap, do not even know the name of the "song".
6) Seven Nation Army is starting to annoy the shiatsnacks out of me.

Just because it is old, does not make it better. I used to like listening to AC/DC when I was younger. Their music just does not age well.

Just had a chat with the future Ms. Spiffed.   She agrees about Pachabel's Cannon being badly overdone at weddings and said its not for us.   but...  we've been talking about having a string quartet anyway, and she plays a mean bass guitar....  so we're considering including Canon.. as long as it is funtwo's version of Canon Rock.. and she plays the bass part after a nice fake-out intro by the quartet.   She's all for the exploding heads that's liable to cause.

Ever been to or watched a sporting event? I will bet dollars to donuts that you heard one or all of these songs, possibly multiple times during said event. Hearing these songs over and over again is like having my ears stabbed with a pencil.

1) Welcome to the Jungle
2) Crazy Train
3) Enter Sandman
4) Anything at all by AC/DC
5) That "We READY" crap, do not even know the name of the "song".
6) Seven Nation Army is starting to annoy the shiatsnacks out of me.

Just because it is old, does not make it better. I used to like listening to AC/DC when I was younger. Their music just does not age well.

/yes, I am over 30

oh gawd you are so right.  The NFL loves welcome to the jungle so much they might as well pay to reunite GNR and have them play it every Superbowl halftime as long as Axl and Slash shall live.

Lorelle: GreatGlavinsGhost: Those are horrific!  I'll have to add them to my ever-growing list ...

Hmmm...haven't seen that before. Great minds think alike . :)

Except for Moonlight Feels Right. That was one of the mellowest songs of 1976. And Spiral Starecase was cool way back when.

As for other songs from that year, you can add Shannon (about some dude's dog). I also forgot to add a few other gems from the early 1970s: Playground In My Mind, Billy Don't Be A Hero, and Wildwood Weed.

/still has the 45 of Half Breed
//Cher was cool


Gah, I forgot all about Playground! lol

AC/DC doesn't age well? Funny, they seem to be aging well. (Well, not Bon, but the rest...) AC/DC does have a way of becoming monotonus if overplayed, but I would posit that's a different problem than "aging." They farking rock; always will IMHO.

I think Crazy Train is fine too. I think anything that's overplayed will eventually become unpalatable until younhave a nice rest from it. Sporting events will surely do that.

Magorn: Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: I got kicked out of the "It's a small world" ride at Disney World once with like 10 of my friends.  It was our high school graduation trip... they told our HS to never come back.

/CSB
/But yeah that song drove us crazy so we started smashing shiat

My first year at Burning Man, someone had built a full scale replica of that ride with loud-speakers that blared hundreds of different versions of that song (in other languages, speed up, slowed down, techno-ified etc) at all hours of the day and night, and every evening  at sunset a big military truck would pull up and dozens of men dressed like commandos, except  with steel mouse ears welded to thier helmets, would herd a mob of people dressed in costumes like those in the ride, to the  stage and force them at gunpoint to perform the song several times.    Except on the last night, just after the performance a woman dressed like the runner in Apple's famous "1984" ad came running up and hurled a satchel charge into the heart of the installation, blowing it into a million pieces and then burning the shards to ash.

It was.....the single most beautiful thing I have ever seen


My dad still talks about his hatred of that song, thanks to a summer custody visit about 2 weeks after my bro and I went to Disney World.  He says we only knew 2 lines, "It's a small world after all" repeat x20 at a higher pitch each time, and when we couldn't sing any higher... "it's a small, small world", aaaaand repeat. Just thinking about it makes me feel like a bad person, but he deserved it.

Lorelle: IC Stars: Seasons in the Sun
Run Joey Run
Watching Scotty Grow

/want more?

I have the 45 of SitS...the song on the flip side is Put The Bone In. Seriously.

Run Joey Run...AKA Quick Joey Small...I remember that one also.

and yes, I still have the Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus album that was given to me when I was 6 (it doesn't have QJS on it, though)


I actually liked Quick Joey Small - I think IC Stars may have been referring to this.

rockymountainrider: any version of "Pave Paradise" will have me diving for the radio controls. Pearl Jam's cover of "Last Waltz" too. Sheryl Crow's covers...The Who...
actually anything played on mainstream classic rock stations. not that i don't like the bands but i'm certain the rolling stones have a large enough discography that i don't have to listen to "jumpin jack flash, paint it black and start me up" on a regular rotation.
same for the who, zep, ac/dc and the rest...

mix it up!


There really isn't any song by Zeppelin that bothers me, and I think the only Floyd song I am completely sick of is Another Brick in the Wall (and in all fairness I disliked that song from day one- we don't need no education was not a sentiment that I was a big fan of, even though they were referencing the practices of British public schools, most American kids took it literally to mean we don't need to learn anything or ever read books or listen to anyone with an IQ over 100, etc) . I was always in the Gilmour camp anyway, Waters was so whiny sometimes and his mommy issues were disturbing to say the least. I'm ok with The Who up to the last couple of albums, and The Stones Exiles on Main Street and earlier. Their later stuff is campy and awful.

In general I don't listen to "classic" rock because I've heard all those 30 and 40 year old songs hundreds of times and music has changed, the world has changed, and I have changed. There is so much amazing music that has been recorded in the last 20 years and people don't even want to hear it. That makes me sad. Most people get into a comfort zone as far as music goes and they listen to the same music that they listened to in high school or college for the rest of their lives. They think that if a band is not played on Clear Channel they can't be good, or they are afraid to tell their friends that they like a band that isn't well known. Screw that.

/loves Porcupine Tree
//hates Freebird
///check out radioparadise.com -a very eclectic musical sampling of the past and present and each song has it's own ongoing discussion thread. Really fun and the trolls put Fark's politics tab to shame.

Hard Nard: Didn't read the whole thread, but anything by Boston makes me want to set my hair on fire.

And then, when you really want to make people scream, you bring out "Billy, don't be a hero!". Worst. Song. EVAR!!!


In the early to mid 1970s, Far Out/Bummer and Alright/Oh No! jokes were popular (maybe it was just a SoCal thing, I don't know). One of my favorites:

Far Out: You got tickets to a concert
Bummer: It's Bo Donaldson & the Heywoods (or The Osmonds)

The Bird: I actually liked Quick Joey Small - I think IC Stars may have been referring to this.


Ah, I forgot about that one. AAAACK.

Do you remember Jeans On?

/damn annoying CH-CH
