Worst Song Of All Time

Hey everyone,

Just curious I guess, but what is everyone's opinion on the worst songs of all time, and why? My friends and I were having a discussion about it earlier today and it's amazing how diverse all the choices can be, let alone the reasons why they hate it...

Mine would have to be "Look What You've Done" by Jet. For starters, I really don't like Jet, at all (worsened by the fact that everyone here in Australia is completely in love with them). Second, the song was totally overplayed here, and third, the song is just really, really, ridiculously bad. No offence to those Jet-lovers out there, but I just really hate this song. For starters they steal Paul McCartney's lyrics, then they add a really horribly played piano piece (in an attempt at giving the public a "softer" side to the "hard-rock" image) and to top it off the singer just can't sing to save himself. The song just makes me want to, well actually I don't know what it would make me want to do because it's been turned off within "Take my photo...".

So yeh, that's my little spiel about my Worst Song Of All Time; I'm sure you all needed to know it. Anyone else?

"Hollaback Girl" by Gwen Stefani.

The next person who forces that filth into my ears *WILL* die. Besides not actually being music, it has a horrible sound. Middle school cheerleaders can yell on-pitch, I don't think it's a big demand for Gwen.

Sorry guys but the worst song ever has got to be LFO's "Summer Girls." Not only is it completely shallow... but it also makes no sense. They just threw in random words that would rhyme.

SEE BELOW:
New Kids On The block,had a bunch of hits
Chinese food makes me sick.
And I think it's fly when girls stop by for the summer,for the summer
I like girls that wear Abercrombie and Fitch,
I'd take her if I had one wish,
But she's been gone since that summer..
Since that summer

so what does chinese food and the new kids on the block have to do with this "long song"?

Hip Hop Marmalade spic And span,
Met you one summer and it all began
Your the best girl that I ever did see,
The great Larry Bird Jersey 33
When you take a sip you buzz like a hornet
Billy Shakespere wrote a whole bunch of sonnets
Call me Willy Whistle cause I can't speak baby
Sumthin in your eyes went and drove me crazy
Now I can't forget you and it makes me mad,
Left one day and never came back
Stayed all summer then went back home,
Macauly Culkin wasn't Home Alone
Fell deep in love,but now we ain't speakin
Michael J Fox was Alex P Keaton
When I met you I said my name was Rich
You look like a girl from Abercrombie and Fitch

wow...just wow right? I mean "Michael J Fox was Alex P Keaton". That's deep man.

Cherry Pez,cold crush,rock star boogie
Used to hate school so I had to play hookie,
Always been hip to the B-boY Style
Known to act wild and make girls smile,
Love New Edition and the Candy Girl
Remind me of you because you rock my world
You come from Georgia where the peaches grow
They drink lemonade and speak real slow
You love hip hop and rock n roll
Dad took off when you were 4 years old
There was a good man named Paul Revere
I feel much better baby when you're near
You love fun dip and cherry Coke,
I like the way you laugh when I tell a joke
When I met you I said my name was Rich
You look like a girl from Abercrombie and Fitch

That's right.. he had to add in Paul Revere. Because nothing tell a girl you think she's "fly" like a small educating thought like that.

Bugaloo shrimp and pogo sticks
My mind takes me back there oh so quick
Let you off the hook like my man Mr. Lipit
Think about that summer and I bug,cause I miss it
Like the color purple,macaroni and cheese,
Ruby red slippers and a bunch of trees
Call you up but whats the use
I like Kevin Bacon,but I hate Footloose
Came in the door I said it before,I think I'm over you
but I'm really not sure
When I met you I said my name was Rich
You look like a girl from Abercrombie and Fitch

My work here is done.

I agree Jen810, The Whisper song sucks, in fact anything by the Yin Yang Twins sucks IMO. I mean "Shake it like a salt shaker? Belch

As for the topic, I have a growing annoyance for David Banner's Play. The way he says "Run Girl!" creeps me out, like he's warning someone to get the hell out of there quickly... or else.

Well Sam, if that's the worst song you've ever heard, I wish I was you. I think the worst song I've ever heard is "Aaron's Party (Come Get It)" by Aaron Carter. I still haven't recovered.

Hey
i'd have to agree with djmisteek about untitled, I'm not a huge fan of simple plans. Also, Jet aren't that bad but they have been played to death here in australia to the point of changing the radio station whenever they come on. I hope wolfmother don't become the new jet(as in played to death)...
Anyway, my least favourite song would have to be that 80's song (don't know who it's by) 'Pleasure and Pain'. Makes me sick. This only takes the number one worst song though, because i don't consider 'Crazy frog' to be music. Stupid frog.

The worst song is Crazy Frog by Axel F and anything by Coldplay because these are the most annoying songs ever

Black Eyed Peas - "My Humps"

It just can't get worse. I mean, sure, the beat is nice, though quite repetitive. The lyrics are horrid, and shallow. Overplayed. To make it worse, they made a remix.

ANYTHING and everything with Lil Jon! I $%#@! hate this guy. This guy can't do shyt. This guy is RUINING hip-hop! Hip-hop has just went down the drain since 1999. In my humble opinion, there are FOUR THINGS that make a hip-hop song legendary.

#1. The beat. (the beat's gotta be tight)
#2. The flow. (the rapper must flow well with the lyrics...ie. 2Pac, Nas)
#3. The lyrics. (The lyrics must be smart. It must be intelligent and thoughtful.)
#4. The voice. (The rapper must have a voice that sounds good)..

I'll tell you right now...who sucks at this. Lil Jon!!!

Here are some artists and thier styles.

Ludacris has good beats, good voice...terrible lyrics and terrible flow.

50cent has good beats, good voice, decent lyrics..TERRIBLE FLOW. The fool does not flow. Any and ALL people who adore his music do NOT know what true hip-hop is.

Hieroglyphics, A tribe called quest have EXCELLENT flow, excellent lyrics...TERRIBLE beats and terrible voice.

Nas and 2Pac have excellent flow, excellent lyrics, excellent beats and good voices.

Personally I think any song by britney spears is a crime against humanity...
the media follows her around like mad...
she shouldn't even try anymore...
she can drive off into sunset with her son on her knee and I frankly wouldn't care.

Totally agree with Lil' Jon. I almost spit out whatever I was drinking when I first heard Cube's new track "Go To Church" and heard him say "I'm down with Lil' John." I figured someone as talented as Cube might realize that Lil' John blows whenever he tries to rap anything. But I guess I can put up with him yelping in the b/g for one track (barely though).

Worst song ever...you know there's a lot of songs by a lot of modern bands that probably I could easily throw in here (Death Cab For Cutie, Dashboard Confessional, The Darkness) but that's kinda vague...I'll go with Gold Digger by Kanye West. I can't stand this song. I think Kanye is about as bad as Lil' Jon or Ludacris, and this song totally proves my point.

Gold Digger by Kanye West. Thanks for reminding me 2pacreborn. Jesus christ what an awful song. And it didn't exactly make anything better that every living soul insisted on playing it 24/7.

"Hollaback Girl" by Gwen Stefani is pretty bad. "Hold The Line" by Toto takes the cake. Whenever I hear it, I always imagine my fat retarded friend trying to sing the chorus, but butchering it on purpose 'cause he knows I hate it..

yes! anything by Fergie is atrocious... not to mention the fact that her entire career is molded after Gwen Stafani's. Since my top choice was taken... i'll take a cheap and easy shot @ Limp Bizkit. They had a fairly good basist though but I actually feel dumber listening to Fred Durst's lyrics.

This is why N.W.A. was such an innovative group. They had all these elements:

Dr. Dre made the beats
Easy E had the voice
Ice Cube wrote the lyrics
and pretty much everyone had the flow.

Seems you missed this one.

To qualify as worst song, we should stipulate that it had to have been very popular. Some of the previous mentions got some radio play then faded away. This song went to #1 and I cringe whenever it gets played on the classic rock station.

"We Built This City" - Starship

I'll take Hollaback Girl over it anyday. At least HG has a good drum pocket.
