This could potentially be the WORST song in any list of gawdawful Christmas songs.

 

Or this

 


“Music is probably the only real magic I have encountered in my life. It's pure and it's real. It moves, it heals.” - Tom Petty

Losing My Religion - REM

The only thing worse than listening to that piece of crap is watching the video with Stipe flailing his arms around. 

 

Come On Eileen - Dexy's Midnight Runners

Hated it the moment I first heard it and still do

 

Anything by Imagine Dragons. Seriously, anything

 

And another vote for Springsteen's - Santa Claus is Coming to Town. Just awful

I'll second you on Come On Eileen.  Fucking hell, that song makes me angry...

Roxanne by the Police.  I hate that song with the white hot intensity of a thousand suns.

Dude... "Layla" is a damn fine tune!  At least up until the outro, which I always skip.

And "Fat Bottomed Girls" is da shizzle as well.  Wth man?

 

Let's see if I can name a few tunes I can't stand that people think that people think are awesome.

 

"Creep" by Radiohead.  Why? Just no.  Sucked back then. Sucks now.

"Black" by Pearl Jam.  Don't necessarily hate it, but don't get why it's some folks fave tune of theirs.  It's so goddamn depressing!  *shrug*

Umm.... can't think of more at the moment.  Just worked a 12 hr shift.  But I know there are others.  :P

To me, Layla is the perfect embodiment of a song that should have been cut down to 4 minutes. It just seems to go on and on forever, and not in a good way

Good god y'all, I hate this.

 

I HATE most everything the Boss has done.

 

Egad, there's loads of songs I can't stand, but when I try to think of one, they don't come to mind. That's old age for you...

I like the rock version of Layla a lot but I abhor the blues version.

 

But Cocaine. Cocaine always stinks.

 

I love Cocaine and Layla, but I don't like the Unplugged version of the latter.

The one song I loathe above all others is UB40's Red Red Wine

 

 

I generally hate reggae for being plodding and repetitive anyway and the whiny vocals just add insult to injury.

 

So imagine my surprise when in the following decade, Ali Campbell released this belting white boy pop-soul tune:

Anything on Counterparts by Rush - dismal corporate rock crap.

Counterparts was the album where the sound came back but the songs didn’t.

If anybody listens to this, check out the junky, gurgling sound underneath everything as the song plays through. This must be a guitar run through a phaser effect with the rate set very high or maybe even two guitars with different rate settings. Hilarious.

 

Nevermind, the correct effect was identified.

I wanted to love CP because it was a return to sound but something was missing somehow and these days when I spin it I usually only listen to few songs off it.

Amen. There is talent there but oh how badly it’s used. Just overproduced tripe.

That Christmas song is the kind of thing I hear at the grocery store.
