    Worst song of all time.

    As if the worst song of all time could ever be known, but someone in another thread quoted what I consider to be the second worst song of all time: We Didn't Start the Fire, by B. Joel.

    If I had to chose a number one, it would be: We Built this City by Starship.

    I haven't played the worst song of all time game in years. The only groundwork I'll lay out is that the song must be a recognized radio hit. And that anyone who wants to play along must come up with a worse song than the two I've already mentioned.

    anything by Nikki Minaj, if you want to call it music. Or Beiber. Both together is like one of the signs of the coming of the apocalypse.

    and from the above era: kokomo by the Beach Boys. Sad.

    To be fair, you probably thought the apocalypse was upon us when Kokomo came out.

    Funny thing about N. Minaj, I'm not even sure if I've ever heard a song of hers. I'm sure I must have when in public or flipping through the radio dial, but I can't be sure. I'm old, I guess. And with the way times have changed, radio music matters so little anymore. Since there is a new Bieber every 5 years, he doesn't offend me so much.

    I kind of like the Wang Chung song, even though it's awful. The Right Said Fred song is certainly in the mix. I can almost forgive one-hit wonders though.

    Monogod, leave some of the bad ones for other posters.

    Mattcz, Rush may be a good candidate for most overrated band of all time. But Tom Sawyer is leaps and bounds better than St. Elmo's Fire.

    The problem with The Joker, girlonbike, is that it's kinda fun to sing. The same can't be said for We Didn't Start the Fire or We Built this City. But, yes, it's a bad song.

    hardly. not liking their music is one thing, but they are phenomenal musicians. and a great number of their songs, and even a few albums, are epic and based on great literature, mythology, and lore. intellectual hard rock, as it were. they are easily on par with todd rundgren's utopia.

    I do love civil disargeement. I see your Safety Dance and raise you a Cherry Pie by Warrant.
    I think Rush is a love them or hate them kind of band.

    Sugar Sugar by The Archies. Most of you are too young to have heard this, and you are fortunate for that. This song got tremendous amounts of radio time when it came out. Gag.

    I'll take your Archies and raise you one Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep:

    Middle of the Road - Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep - Totp 1971 - YouTube

    That summer I was in the mountains in N Iran for a couple of months, cut off from any media, and I missed any good music. When we came out of the hills after the period, we stopped at a gas station somewhere in Turkey, and this song was on the radio blaring from the workshop. I thought the world had been taken over by aliens in my absence... from Zep to this!

    OP nailed some great (horrible) ones right from the get go. Here are the 1st 3 that popped into my head-

    1) Styx- Mr. Roboto

    2) Aldo Nova- Fantasy

    3) Alanis Morissette- Ironic

    Honorable mention- Any hit song by any 80's hair band.

    Anything from ICP. I'd rather stick my male parts in a crank in use than listen to any of their crap.

    That friggin Journey song that every college kid in the country was singing for a couple months there.

    And I agree, anything from Nicki Minaj (sp?) or Beiber. The both make me want to put hot needles in my eardrums.

    So many to choose from. . . .

    Seasons in the Sun - Terry Jacks (#2 song of 1974)

    Alone Again Naturally - Gilbert O'Sullivan (nominated for two Grammy's)

    Girl You Know it's True - Milli Vanilli (won a Grammy)

    Don't Worry, Be Happy - Bobby McFerrin (Grammy Winner)

    MMM-Bop - Hanson

    Come On Eileen - Dexy's Midnight Runners

    Walk Like an Egyptian - The Bangles - (#1 song of that year)

    Muskrat Love - Captain and Tenille - (#1 song of that year)

    Torn Between Two Lovers - Mary MacGregor (reached #1)

    Delta Dawn - Helen Reddy

    That ought to be enough to induce some wretching. . . .

    I guess people are looking for "genuine" suck because quite frankly I cannot believe we made it 34 replies in with only ONE mention of Nickleback.

    situation no where, rush for a change of atmosphere, by BIG AUDIO DYNAMITE, a pitiful song and a pitiful band, and anything by pink floyd the most over rated band in history, and any celine dion songs.

    EWWww. It's getting truly awful in here, but try to remember all, my ground rules are that the songs must be considered some kind of radio hit. There's a couple in here I've never even heard of, though I will watch the links with joy/pain.

    Speaking of Celine Dion, that stupid Titanic song may not be the worst of all time, but it makes me want to go looking for Titanic survivors so I can finish the deal.

    Part of my philosophy on worst song of all time is that the song/songwriter has to take him/her/themselves seriously. They have to think the wrote a really deep, moving song. Some of the awful songs in here are camp. The artist had no illusions about the song. You know Starship thought that song was pretty deep when they wrote it. The Billy Joel song is just as guilty.

    Well, there really is only one way to find out...but for obvious reasons I really don't recommend that. YMMV.
    I'm enjoying my childhood way too much to ever give it up.

    That brokeNCYDE is truly awful. The worst. The great thing about that song is I will never, ever, have to hear it again. Some of the songs on here, you are forced to listen to on occasion, which is the only reason those songs are worse. Plus, that brokeNCYDE can't be considered a hit, can it?

    They did get minor college station radio play several years ago, but yeah the only place you're really going to hear them now is by accident on YouTube. Suffice to say they have other videos on YouTube and they are as bad if not worse - for those of you prone to "sneaking looks at car wrecks as you drive by" I'll suggest "bree bree" and claim it is much worse - only because if I'm correct, the entire "song" only contains those two words; "bree bree."

    Sad part is I think their album distribution was being given free to customers that spent a minimum of $10 at Hot Topic stores.

    This is a such an awesome post, great idea. So many come to mind, but Billy Ray may ultimately top the list....

    I ran- Flock of Seagulls
    She blinded me with Science- Thomas Dolby
    The Macarana or Mambo #9

    Most recently I heard Free Energy on the radio and was less than impressed.
    BTW does everyone know that the Safety Dance was protest against nuclear proliferation? I still like the Renaissance Festival... not enough to dress in costume.

    Great music, just like art is in the eye of the beholder. If someone thinks "Grandma got run over by a Reindeer" is the greatest masterpiece ever written then for that person it absolutely is.

    I'll bet a case of premo there's not one person who's read this thread that hasn't looked at at least one post and thought "Hey, I like those guys!"- even the three I mentioned, though it makes me shiver a little.

    yes this. Every time I hear this song coming from someone's car I have to physically restrain myself from driving them off the road. It is like musical poison. It makes George Harrison roll over in his grave.

    Yep, I like the first Boston album.

    I find that taste changes over time too. Songs I thought sucked rocks 40 years ago aren't half bad now.

    Nicki Minaj, Carly Rae Jepson, Beeber, they're like certain foods I know I won't like so I don't try them. The only radio I listen to is a college station out of the Cincinnati area, so I get new music, but not commercial music. WNKU | Public radio that Rocks!

    I thought it was about using condoms. According to the composer, we're both wrong The Safety Dance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Anything by any religious rock band.

    What about 'hold on' by Wilson phillips, sung by the big rig chick in the duffle coat popping out from behind trees and walkinmg over wind swept mountains, that was bad, real bad.

    What about that barbie girl song, that was a disgrace.

    I had seen in many places that the band claimed it was a commentary on the nuclear arms race. I think I originally heard about this duing a music trivia game. I have not thought about it for a while but once I saw it was posted here it popped back to the forefront of the typing portion of my brain. I will have to look into this for my own edification

    the barbie song...wow that is a bad song
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    One thing that hurts Boston as well as other "classic rock" bands is that those hits are way overplayed. Whenever I walk past a construction site and hear More than a feeling blaring from the radio I just cringe. Thankfully I don't listen to too much commercial radio either so that helps.

    willis alan ramsey wrote it and released it in 1972 as "muskrat candlelight". america covered it in '73 on "hat trick" changing the title to "muskrat love" and then C&T covered it again in '76.
