    That was actually a pretty interesting blog entry. I laughed out loud at the total 80s macho posturing of the song title “Shoot You Full Of Love". But he makes some pretty good points about how ridiculous it was for Vinnie Vincent to insist he precisely matched the drum machine with his real drumming. I'm thinking, why didn't he just use a drum machine on that album? And as Bobby Rock indicated, this kind of precision actually takes away from some of the feel of a song.

    I love this song, but you got 4 guys standing around. Two look like they are headed to prom, one to the Renaissance Fair, and then - well - Hagrid.

    Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, The Breeders, and Material Issue gave me hope for my college years. These three slapped that down...

    I actually like Supermans Song by CTD. The very first time I heard that 4Non Blondes song I wanted to smack that damn hat off of her head. And I despise that song more now than ever. The only thing from the 90s that chafes me more is anything Paula Cole got near.

    I used to work for Robert Pollard (Guided by Voices), and we were at a Starbucks the morning after he recorded his parts for a solo album. He asked me and an another associate what the worst song ever recorded was. I immediately started singing “What’s Up.” He gave me the “Holy sh...THAT’S IT!!!” look.

    ...or song, for that matter.

    Since "Rock Me Tonite" and "Party All The Time" have already been posted, I'll submit the exact moment that REM jumped the shark for good-

    I don't agree, "Out of time" and "Automatic for the people" to me were the album which opened the door to REM for me. Whenever I do acoustic shows "Losing" is always on my set list.

    You know the funniest thing about "What's up" and my music teacher in high school pointed that out: it's in the same chords as "Don't worry be happy" but the message of the song is completely the opposite.

    So, just for the fun of it, you should look up an instrumental version of either song and sing the other's lyrics over it.

    So was it the videos which were awful or the songs themselves?

    I mean this one has gone all the way around and through to maybe great. I don’t know anymore. In any case, the Literal Version is one of my favorite things on the internet.

    Here's a couple more cool songs ruined by awful videos.


    I can't remember just how I discovered it but "It's love" was my introduction to King's X and I always loved that song but when youtube came around which enabled me to look up those bands I really got into, I was shocked by that train wreck of a video.

    Back in the early 2000's, I started to get this habit of buying album where a famous artist worked on aside from his own work. So with for example Prince, I'd buy Sheila E, The Time, Vanity Six and with Michael Jackson, the Jackson Five and the The Jacksons. Now prior to me owning it, I always saw the album "Victory" as the logical sister album of "Thriller" because of them having came out around the same time. Boy, was i EVER wrong about that...

    "Torture" is a good song but the video is embarrassingly bad, not in the least because of Michael and Jermaine who did shared lead vocal duties, both NOT appearing in the video, they actually used two look-a likes who weren't allowed to take their sunglasses off because that would give it away.

    But it actually gets worse with the second single taken from the album...

    Again, the main players are nowhere to be seen, the song borrows very heavily and obviously from Micheal's song "Wanna be starting something" and Marlon Jackson doesn't really have the most gifted singing voices around and then there's the video itself...

    When the guys did their "Victory" tour, they played NO songs from the album they were touring to support, a year later Michael departed and proved with "Bad" that he was way better off without his brothers.
