"O Superman" Laurie Anderson


The "song" appeared on a phone commercial from AT&T. Monotonous, isn't it...

Die Antwoord "Fatty Boom Boom", with a mean spirited video that trashes Lady GaGa. Ironically, they actually turned down an offer to tour with her earlier this year. Jealousy, much?  ::)


As for the song, it's just as cringe worthy... :P

Songs I find campy or unintentionally funny...

Milli Vanilli "Baby, Don't Forget My Number"
David Lee Roth "Just A Gigolo" (though probably intended considering the music video and Diamond Dave's persona)
Pretty Boy Floyd "Leather Boyz With Electric Toyz" (almost like a parody)
Warrant "Cherry Pie"
Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam "All Cried Out" (a bit too over dramatic)
Accept "Balls to the Wall"
Rednex "Cotton Eyed Joe"
C+C Music Factory "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)"

11 Worst Summer Songs



LMFAO—“Party Rock Anthem” (2011)
The Pussycat Dolls Featuring Busta Rhymes—“Don’t Cha” (2005)
LFO—“Summer Girls” (1999)
Los Del Rio—“Macarena” (1996)
Color Me Badd—“I Wanna Sex You Up” (1991)
Peter Cetera—“Glory of Love” (1986)
Lipps, Inc.—“Funkytown” (1980)
KC & the Sunshine Band—“Shake Your Booty” (1976)
Brian Hyland—“Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini” (1960)
Sheb Wooley—“Purple People Eater” (1958)
Tex Williams—“Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! (The Cigarette)” (1947)


"Don't Cha" fits well in a Weird Al polka medley  ;D

Personally, I don't remember the timeframe of bad songs...

Billboard Top 10 Songs of Summer from 1985 to 2009



The number of bad songs on the lists rises after the mid 1990's, though don't remember (or thankfully forgotten) most of them...

I recall Natasha Bedingfield's debut single "These Words", which became an instant favorite, being played in the US during mid 2005, though I didn't know Rhianna was around that early.

Though I found "Crazy" from Gnarls Barkley annoying when it was overplayed, I actually liked it few years ago.

10 Worst Summer Songs from Entertainment Weekly (1996)



Quote
1 ''Even the Nights Are Better'' Air Supply, 1982
2 ''Maniac'' Michael Sembello, 1983
3 ''Eye of the Tiger'' Survivor, 1982
4 ''Puttin' on the Ritz'' Taco, 1983
5 ''Sussudio'' Phil Collins, 1985
6 ''Yummy Yummy Yummy'' Ohio Express, 1968
7 ''I'd Really Love to See You Tonight'' England Dan & John Ford Coley, 1976
8 ''Colour My World'':Chicago, 1971
9 ''Annie's Song'' John Denver, 1974
10 ''Ebony and Ivory'' Paul McCartney with Stevie Wonder, 1982

Disagree on "Eye of the Tiger", which I don't think is bad nor good. Also "Sussudio", which is the only Phil Collins song I actually enjoy, which the beat is quite infectious.

Revisiting a cheesy "worst" list featuring hard rock and metal songs, which I made a set list featuring about half of the selection from Cinderella, Dokken, Whitesnake, Dio, Quiet Riot, Vixen, Scorpions, Warrant to name a few.

Europe "The Final Countdown" isn't as bad compared to their power ballad "Carrie", though the keyboards were monotonous.

Green Jelly "Three Little Pigs" was intended as a joke and Ugly Kid Joe "Everything About You" was also tongue in cheek.


While I agree with several, Twisted Sister "Leader of the Pack" and Nelson "After the Rain" should've been ranked.

Blender's infamous 50 worst songs list

April will mark the 10th anniversary of the list and Blender stopped publication in 2009, 5 years ago.

source

Disagree on Wang Chung and Mr. Mister and also the songs from Corey Hart,  Huey Lewis,  Meatloaf, Spin Doctors, and the "Friends" theme from The Rembrants are OK, but wouldn't consider the worst. Same for "Party All the Time", which I don't think is as bad as what the media make it out to be though not exactly great either and would be considered filler material if recorded by producer Rick James or another artist. As for actors that recorded songs, Don Johnson's "Heartbeat" was far worse.


Indifferent towards Crash Test Dummies, though the Weird Al parody "Headline News" is classic.

I remember how Beavis and Butthead used to crack on songs and some of those songs deserved it but I remember in one episode where Butthead starts trashing a Bon Jovi song but Beavis sort of liked it.  Beavis said that he didn't like the song but there was this one part of it that was cool.  Butthead started slapping him around until Beavis had enough and went off on Butthead big time.

Thankfully forgotten hits from the early '90's

Timmy T "One More Try" (1991), which actually went #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 1991



Shakespear's Sister "Stay" (1992)

"Hooray For Hazel" Tommy Roe (1966)

Not exactly bad nor good, but considering that the name "Hazel" isn't common anymore and tend to be associated with a type of nut or the witch from  Looney Tunes.

1. Aerosmith "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" from "Armageddon"


Debby Boone "You Light Up My Life" was from a now obscure movie, which most people tend to forget. Christopher Cross "Arthur's Theme", Bryan Adams "Everything I Do (I'll Do It For You)" (Robin Hood), Michael Sembello "Maniac" (Flashdance), and  "Lady Marmalade" with Pink, Lil' Kim, Mya, Christina Aguilera, and Missy Elliott from "Moulin Rouge"


I disagree on Alice Cooper and  "Blaze of Glory" from Jon Bon Jovi is OK. Indifferent towards "I've Had the Time of My Life".



Wasn't for "Gangsta's Paradise", there wouldn't be "Amish Paradise" ;D

"Bad Bad Boys" Midi, Maxi, & Efti (1991)

Thought about this while listening to '90's pop music, which I recall the chorus from an episode of "Beavis & Butt-Head" where they quickly changed to another video.

Wham "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" is a fairly decent song, though tend to get a lot of flack due to the video. Though were more popular in the UK prior to their 1984  "Make It Big" album, some of their earlier songs such as "Wham Rap" was far more cheesier.
