questionswhat is the worst song ever?


Red Solo Cup.

Makes me want to bash my head against a wall.


I'm sure I have answered this question before, but the worst song EVER is definitely "What's New Pussycat?" by Tom Jones.


@311feen: Dart just bought out SOLO... but still gonna keep the SOLO brand. link


Anything by a boy band. Ugh.


alanis morissette - ironic

unless the ironic point of the song is that nothing in the song is ironic. even then, worst. song. ever.


Rock Star - Nickelback. A close second is any of their other songs.


"Muskrat Love". If you don't believe me, here it is....don't say you weren't warned.


At first I had Rebecca Blacks "Friday" on my #1 list..

I just saw this on Syfy's "Monster Man" and they did a remake of "Forbidden Zone".

My brain is forever scarred.


Incidentally, there's nothing wrong with MmmmBop. People just hate it because it got drilled into their heads through endless radio repetition. Now that we're years removed from those dark days, I find I can actually enjoy listening to it.

But then, I also like Britney Spears' "Toxic", so take that for what it's worth.


@lpgstock: I'm giving you a virtual slap for putting that song in my head!


I can't believe no one has mentioned "Feelings"... I'm still trying to "forget that feeling of" nausea anytime I hear it!!


@pamfenway: Sorry... I regret mentioning it... It's echoing thru my head now too... All those years of therapy to get over it...wasted...


@lichme: NOOOOOOO! It will take me days to get that out of my head! Definitely a terrible song.


I can't believe somebody beat me to Muskrat Love.


FWIW, many a critic have panned Starship for "We Built this City" of the 80s. What made it even worse was Starbucks made a version of it for the Starbucks Partners - "We Built This Starbucks" and was performed at some big conference and performed by the SBUX managers.

I think a close second is Starship's "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" in Mannequin.


Achy Breaky Heart

I am disappointed that it hasn't been mentioned yet, and double disappoint it's not #1 answer


@lpgstock: aha! So there is a god! (evens stevens)


@cowboydann: ooh! That makes me think of another: "Stand By Your Man." (Except, of course, when performed by the Blues Bros.)


Wonderful Christmastime by Paul McCartney.


'Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree' - Tony Orlando and Dawn
'Puttin' on the Ritz' - Taco
'Disco Duck' - Rick Dees


I left one off my list... 'Macarena' - Los Del Rio


Disco Duck by Rick Dees......


"Blue (Da Ba Dee)" - Eiffel 65
"Crank Dat" - Souljah Boy
"Who Let the Dogs Out" - Baha Men


it is absolutely "GOING MOBILE by The Who


Every one here is wrong, sorry. The worst song of all time is "A Horse With No Name" by America.


No, it is definitely William Shatner's (aka Captain James T. Kirk of the Federation Starship Enterprise) rendition of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." If you doubt me, please follow the attached link:


Some song you've never heard of because it was recorded by some band who never got signed to a label and therefore didn't get to release it as a single.


@aksman44: this type of song shouldn't count. they don't play it on the radio. My aunt sings a pretty bad version of Honky Tonk Women. Can I count it?


One Week by the Barenaked Ladies. I hate it, can't stand it, and want to puncture my eardrums with a pencil every time I hear it. Just something about the repetiveness of his "rapping" that drives me bonkers.



Well, it was recorded on an album (tells about the recording era) and I would never have known about it without hearing it on the radio at one it definitely counts.


Tiny Tim singing "Tiptoe through the Tulips"


Sisqo, "The Thong Song."

You're welcome.


there are about 8 Nickleback songs that make me cringe at the stupidity of the lyrics.

gotta be somebody

but the one that makes me want to shove glass rods in my ears...
Some Day ... Some day we're gonna make it alright, but not right now, only you know when .... WTF???


"MacArthur Park" as sung by Richard Harris. Although any version will qualify.

Uh oh... gotta go. I forgot the cake!


Techno.. Is that even considered music?


@pamfenway: I actually enjoy Lyle Lovett's version of "Stand By Your Man".

My choice, deepened by years of karaoke, is "Summer Nights" from the Grease score.


lady gaga and justin beiber


Cherish by Kool & the Gang... cheezy, sappy, stupid, awful.

"I often pray before I lay down by your side;
If you receive your calling before I awake
Could I make it through the night?"

Yeah... so, what, he's afraid she's going to run away and become a nun in the middle of the night??

gbl gbl

How in the world am I the first person to mention Skrillex?!?!?!?

Pretty much anything by Skrillex makes me want to claw my brain out.


"American Idiot" or "Wake Me Up When September Ends"

More so "Idiot," it feels like it goes everywhere musically and the lyrics feel like an unfocused ranting mess. Green Day wants to make a protest-ish song, fine. Just make it something tolerable musically first. It's so grating to me musically that I can't even stand the Weird Al version, and I usually like his parodies.


At the time of posting Achy Breaky Heart is tied at #1 with Red Solo Cup.

I am no longer disappointed in you woot, ya dun good.
