Skadota: Having My Baby - Paul Anka

I somewhat forgave him for that atrocity when he did this:
2013-09-19 01:25:56 PM  
I think we've missed "Honey" by Bobby Goldsboro. (dead wife)

Also "Shannon" by Henry Gross. (dead dog)

And "D.O.A." by Bloodrock (dead guy)

Everybody Hurts - REM

//don't hold on, just kill yourself, already.
2013-09-19 03:52:24 PM  
Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy always pissed me off.  But i do enjoy some of the other stuff that band made.  Mostly the non-radio stuff.
2013-09-19 04:41:41 PM  
"Run, Joey, Run"

(which I could have done without knowing Glee had done a cover of, but hey, share the pain with younger generations.)
2013-09-19 04:47:40 PM  
Also, "Country Bumpkin"  by Cal Smith
2013-09-19 05:42:34 PM

TheSwissNavy: Theres so much excellent hiphop and they played the piss out of that?

No there isn't.  There is none.  Zero.  Nada.  Niltch.  Zip.

There is no excellent hiphop.  There isn't even good hiphop.  Not even mediocre hiphop exists.  It's all complete shiat.
2013-09-19 09:41:43 PM  
Farking Kumbaya!  I want to do a Terminator on the people singing that crap, each and every time I hear it.

Next, farking Rocky Raccoon, how such a "beloved" group could put that kind of shiat out to their public, convinces me that Beatle fans are morons.

C'mon son!

Chevy Van by Sammy Johns

Of course by being the worst, it's transcended bad and punched on through to awesome.  Or at least solid guilty pleasure.
2013-09-19 10:27:42 PM  
Elvira - Oak Ridge Boys

"Giddy up a Oom Poppa Oom Poppa Mow Mow"
2013-09-19 11:08:19 PM  

dobro: Horse With No Name

The heat was hot? Really?

And name the farkin' horse already!

No love for Dr. Demento?? No one did "worst song evar" better than he did.

Oh and anything that is on commercial radio. Pretty much evar.
2013-09-19 11:51:29 PM  
Of all time?

I'm pretty sure there was some song sung in the 4th century BC that was pretty terrible.
2013-09-20 12:21:36 AM  
Is That All There is by Peggy Lee

It was on the radio the same time as Seasons in the Sun.

That was a sucky year in radio.
2013-09-20 01:18:38 AM  
Because youuuuu Light up My liffffffe
2013-09-20 03:48:15 AM  

Freschel: Having My Baby
Eye of the Tiger. Great riffs ruin by some guys vocal with crappy verse.
Living on a Prayer. What was people of VHS smoking when they chose it as number one of the best 80's song?

Looks like I've been smoking the same stuff. VH1 not VHS.
2013-09-20 04:18:20 AM  
Plastic Ono Band, "Don't Worry Kyoko."
Christ, that song could make a terrorist talk, and using it would probably be a war crime.
2013-09-20 08:33:28 AM  

Ow! That was my feelings!: Elvira - Oak Ridge Boys

"Giddy up a Oom Poppa Oom Poppa Mow Mow"

The worst part is, it ripped off the excellent "Papa Oom Mow Mow" by the Rivingtons.
2013-09-20 12:32:40 PM  
Not to be cliche, but that "Hero" song from the Spiderman (or maybe Spiderman 2?) soundtrack by some combination of Nickleback. Terrible in every way imaginable.
2013-09-20 03:28:01 PM  
Hey Jude. Really.
2013-09-20 03:28:50 PM  
Kiss' entire catalog is hereby nominated.
2013-09-20 03:35:54 PM  
That wedding reception song where this guy is basically telling you how to dance. "Mooove to the left, mooove to the right! Crisscross! Crisscross!" The line I particularly remember is "Everybody clap your hands! Clapclapclapclapclapclapclap".
2013-09-20 04:01:12 PM  
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
2013-09-20 05:13:24 PM  
Last Kiss. (The oldie and the Pearl Jam version suck equally)
2013-09-20 05:32:19 PM  
All of My Love - Plant is soooo flat it physically hurts to hear that song on the radio
2013-09-20 05:50:35 PM  
Michael Bolton and Barbara Streisand did a bunch of duets.  I nominate all of them.
2013-09-20 06:38:11 PM  
Turning Japanese by The Vapors. Pure garbage.
2013-09-20 06:59:34 PM  

Shoei: Turning Japanese by The Vapors. Pure garbage.

I'll see your Vapors, and raise with an equally offensive, but even more poorly written China Boys by the Payolas (Paul Hyde and Bob Rock.  Bob has gone on to produce a bunch of other bands multi-platinum albums... Metallica's "Black" among them)
2013-09-20 07:18:15 PM  

tbaughm: Hey Jude. Really.

Can't see how a Beatles song would be on here, but OK...
