the theme song from the movie Titanic.

i hate it. it makes me want to stab myself in the ears. and then stab the person who decided to re-do the movie in 3D.

I don't devote enough energy to songs I don't like to actually hate them, i save that sort of passion for things I enjoy.

There's some song about the hollywood sign that puts everyone in my proximity in grave danger.

pretty much anything auto-tuned. As if pop music wasn't already manufactured enough to begin with, now it's not even the "performer's" voice singing the lyrics they didn't write to the tune they didn't compose.

I really don't listen to the radio much anymore (Being that my stereo was stolen), so mine isn't really a current popular song. "All the Small Things" was probably one of Blink 182's most popular songs, and it was overplayed so much that I can't stand it. Saw one of their shows last summer, and they would play commercials/music videos between bands/sets and feel like I heard it dozens of times through the night. Never want to hear it again now.

does anyone remember the song "who let the dogs out"?
i worked bigbox store that played it almost constantly on morning musak. a group of us decided we were gonna call the radio company and ask "if we admit our store # let the dogs out, will you PLEASE stop playing that song!!!!!!"

Most songs that get overplayed. Once you can change the radio station and hear the song being played on 3 or more stations at the same time, I've just about had enough of it.

@johnnys13: Agreed completely on Pumped Up Kicks (I assume that's the one you're referring to). Also add Moves Like Jagger and, sorry, but Adele is so overplayed I can't stand her.

Britney Spears was pretty much my breaking point for modern pop music. I know virtually nothing about the pop scene after she arrived. I know the names Lady Gaga and LMFAO just because I see them in the news all the time, but couldn't tell you a thing about their music. I have no idea what a "Foster the People" song is.

I don't listen to the radio much, I listen to songs I actually like on my MP3 player. But if I am listening to the radio and "I'm a Creep" by Radiohead comes on I will change it or turn it off. The whiny lyrics, the whiny tone, the whiny music all really grate on me. I avoid listening to Pink's "Raise Your Glass" song, even though I kind of like it as a good high-energy workout song, because that "Why so serious?" line gets stuck on an endless loop in my head. Oh dang, there it is! Curse you for making me think about it!

I have this weird tendency to be more likely to like songs mostly in a minor key, and hate songs mostly in a major key. For example I actually like Katy Perry's "The One That Got Away" but I ABSOLUTELY HATE her "California Gurls".

I hate that song that everybody sings at parties all the time. It's sooooooooooooooo played out. I don't even remember the name of it, but it goes like "Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear [insert someone's name here]. Happy Birthday to you." Every time I go to someone's birthday party, that song is sung and I hate it.

Anything by Everlast. Such a stupid voice and even stupider topics.

Adele - Someone Like You. Gah I hate that song. I like her other stuff, but when it comes on I have to change stations.

vote-for2vote-against

Remember several years ago when "It's Hard to be a Pimp" won the Oscar for best song/music/whatever? <---- I stopped listening to 'modern' music LONG before that travesty. I'm an 'oldies' person. Don't listen to current sounds at all.

@moondrake: In all fairness, Radiohead doesn't much care for the song, either.

I don't listen to the radio unless it's NPR, I stick to my iPod, butholy mother of god does every song by Black-Eyed Peas suck. The lyrics are neanderthal, the melodies are short and repetitive, and they're about nothing. It makes cotton candy look like a steak dinner, to mix metaphors.

@chronosquall14: I find most recent music to have that problem. I like a lot of the Blackeyed Peas, Lady Gaga, Pink and some other contemporary groups for workout music, partly because their lyrics don't engage my brain but their beat does engage my feet. My workout Sansa has an entirely different playlist than does the Sansa I listen to for pleasure, which is mostly older music chosen for pleasing melodies and/or meaningful lyrics. Or the one labeled "karaoke" that I keep in the car just to sing along with. That one has a lot of songs I am sure most folks here would sneer at, including the dreaded Titanic theme, that I enjoy bellowing along with in the privacy of my Honda. My favorite sing-along songs are "Good Morning Starshine" by Oliver and "Holding out for a Hero" in any of its incarnations, a great song for us ladies.

Currently my two most hated popular songs are...

(1) Sexy and I Know it by LMFAO
I especially HATE the part where they say "I work owwwt"!!

(2) We Found Love by Rhianna
Something about the whole "We found love in a hopeless place" just grinds on my nerves!

@alpayton: LMFAO has actually solved a slight problem we have in America today. XKCD even did a comic about it

anything by the beatles. who says they are so great? its not that they are bad, but they are not special or good, jest average/ mediocre

Oh yeah, something in the last few posts reminded me: Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now". Listening to a couple of people sing about drunk dialing their ex. It's a catchy tune but the lyrics annoy me.

More or less anything recorded since 1985 or so. Unless it's by Leonard Cohen, of course.

Where to start...

Usher - OMG
RHCP - Under the Bridge
Oasis - (Any song by this band makes me want to go stalking through the office with an Armalite AR-15 pumping round after round into colleagues and co-workers.)

Edwin McCain "I'll Be". I've hated that song and every damn lyric/note in it since the first time I heard the first 5 seconds of it. I once threw an old radio against the wall when I was landscaping the backyard of our new house 6 years ago when that song came on. I closed my eyes and pictured his face, and just chucked it with everything I had. One of the most satisfying things I've ever done in my life!

I liked foster the people's "pumped up kicks" when I first heard it iver a year ago, but it is all played out now.

"Boulevard of Broken Dreams" might be my all-time least favorite song, largely because it was so epically overplayed back when it came out. One time when it was playing at super-duper-mega-unbelievable-saturation level, I simultaneously heard it on a top40, a "modern rock", and a country station in my home town.

Of course the one station that wouldn't touch it with any length stick was the station that catered to punk music; they knew Green Day had sold out long, long, before then.

Oh, and Boulevard was in every conceivable way orders of magnitude worse than "The Kids Aren't Alright" by the Offspring.

I also can't stand anything from Radiohead or Soundgarden. I have no idea what Radiohead is trying to accomplish, and Soundgarden songs start at 8 minutes long and get longer from there.

I'd also like to add the theme from "Dawson's Creek" as one of my least favorite songs of all time. I know it isn't very popular anymore, but even hearing small parts of it make me want to go run out in traffic. When I worked retail, it was on our muzak and came up on average five times per shift. Some times I would make fake pages on the store intercom (or just open the intercom line and not say anything) just to interrupt that crappy song.

@turken: TESTIFY! I think any album with auto-tuned vocals should have a big sticker on the cover a la explicit lyrics, so you know you're not getting a true singer. Remember the flap over Milli Vanilli a bunch of years ago? The guys who you thought were the artists were actually just male models. They didn't sing anything. Everyone who bought the album got in a class action suit!

Anything by Nickelback! You hear it once and you think "that's cool!' Then you hear it a few more times and think "GOD! Make it stop!" Like the stand up comic says: "Sounds like Dr. Seuss set to music!"

@tcayer: I HATE Nickleback! Thank you!!!
