    Lemmy wrote it with the intention of a female singer taking it up. Lita Ford and Joan Jett were offered. They were keen, but their managers nixed it, so Lemmy did it.

    One of the very few tracks I skip.

    Revolver - Yellow Submarine.
    Loved it as a kid. But then my kids played it endlessly when they were about 3. Just kill me.

    Jethro Tull's 'A Passion Play' - a great and under-rated work apart from that stupid 'Hare Who Lost His Spectacles' in the middle. Marbles, more like.

    Life's Been Good from Joe Walsh's But Seriously, Folks album. Silly song but the rest of the album is stellar.

    Head Games is a great Foreigner album, and then you get to "Blinded by Science". :(

    I think I read once that Walsh doesn't like the song either.

    Holly Beth Vincent's cover of "For What It's Worth" on her otherwise sublime album Holly & The Italians (not to be confused with the album The Right To Be Italian by the band Holly and The Italians).

    I don't totally hate the song taken by itself, especially with so many worse songs out there. But, man, it is just SO far below the level of the rest of the album that it just kind of smacks you in the head with how out of place it is and makes it seem even worse.

    I think all my top fav albums have at least one song I cannot stand.

    Even Rubber Soul? Can't think of a stinker on that one...
    Oh, wait... What Goes On is on that one, isn't it? Never mind...

    It's kind of like "Luka" or "Hell is for children" with a twist of incest.

    I cant remember but just about every album has one song I like a lot less than the others.
    There's usually at least a couple I will skip on an album. Sometimes due to a good song being overplayed on the radio etc.

    I've always been rubbed the wrong way by the following:
    Metallica: The Thing That Should Not Be from Master of Puppets
    Led Zeppelin: Hot Dog on In Through the Out Door & Boogie With Stu on Physical Graffiti
    Smashing Pumpkins: Quiet from Siamese Dream
    Sugar: Gee Angel from File Under: Easy Listening

    Yeah, "Les Boys" has been a WTF since I first put the vinyl on the turntable. I also think "Money for Nothing" is the worst song on Brothers in Arms, but not nearly as big a deal; obviously some people really like that one!

    Stop Your Sobbing on Pretenders I. Completely out of place and to me it just sounds whiney and totally lacking in empathy all at the same time. Figures it wasn't written by Chrissie and the boys.

    Another vote for Metallica - Master of Puppets (The Thing That Should Not Be - aptly titled).
    Sonic Youth - Goo (Mary Christ)
    VAST - Music for People (The Gates of Rock N Roll - not terrible, but not as strong as the rest of the album)
    Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms (Walk of Life)

    Abbey Road - but not the songs mentioned earlier. Maxwells Silver Hammer!
    Also the White Album: Rocky Raccoon. Come on, Paul....what the heck.
