I don't know for certain it's the worst/most pathetic song ever, but......

    Yawn and Dawn's "Knock 3 times" for me followed by "Candida".

    "Barbie Girl" is genius.

    Out of morbid curiosity I had a look and, yes, it really is this bad...



    Jess is still alive and well, having been moderately successful as an actor and also having performed in a number of "Solid Silver Sixties" shows organised in part by my late mate Mac Poole.

    While I kind of admire the songcraft - does Tom Petty get a check for the many references? - it's completely generic bro-country... they could've plugged just about anyone into that autotuned vocal booth and it would've sounded the same. Sad.

    It is pretty low. He did another one that was pretty good but this is pure crap.

    Yeah, it really sounds exactly like a hundred other songs out there.

    You think any lawsuits are coming!?

    Well, it is as good as 90% of what comes out of Nashville these days, IMHO.

    I didn't even listen to it because I can't afford the data, but at least I know the title is dangerously close to grody.

    Gangnam Style was fun, for the first few times

    Haters gonna hate
    Taters gonna potate

    I know of way worse music than anything posted thus far, but then again it's all subjective , isn't it

    There's this expression "Can't Blame a Guy for Trying". Well, that expression is simply, wholly mistaken. You can blame Tyler for doing this. My dream and distant hope is, this awful Tyler pap will annihilate the whole Bro Country Genre like a MIRV'd IBM couldn't. The Bro Country listeners will suddenly realize they're in fact the butt of a sick, greedy joke. And they'll go cold turkey and switch to Dwight Yoakam and Buddy Miller overnight - one fell swoop.

    I've written far worse songs than anything posted here.

    However, there's always this:

    Glad my first song writing efforts continue to languish.
    I did get better.
    I, personally loathe paens to arrogance, like "My Way".
    The lounge act I played in for decades did it.
    My blood temperature drops 5 degrees at the thought of it.
    It's the lyrics, not the melody, that makes me want to hurl.

    yeah Sid's version was cool though

    I never understood the hate for the Rebecca Black song. It's a song meant to appeal to young adolescent girls. Is it not a good song, in that sense?

    I never had appreciation for for the Barney song, or the Teletubbies song, but they were not meant to appeal to me. so I was indifferent.

    I would say the same about all these boomer favorites, except for that they've been overplayed out and shoved down my throat for many decades, so I've learned to loathe them. I would rather listen to that admittedly really bad Steven Tyler song than hear many of those songs, ever again

    Thanks boomers, for force-feeding all of us the soundtrack to your youth, over and over and over, for generations...o_O

    Mmmmm... it's a simple equation.

    Bro Country Song - Bro + Steven Tyler = Red White & You.

    I'd be hard pressed to top that dreck, it represents everything that's terrible about the current state of music.

    When this song was big, I spoke with Pat Alger, the cowriter of this song, and asked him about Garth's nonsensical ad lib at the end that contradicts the rest of the lyric. He laughed and said that he was thankful for whatever Garth does, because Garth had the rare gift of being able to connect with the public and sell millions of recordings.
