    John Lennon’s version is great though.

    Billy Joel "We Didn't Start the Fire." Just a nonsense string of pop-culture references sung as annoyingly as possible.

    Oh is that how you spell that name?
    I meant that song by that ex-beetle guy with the pretend hippy philosophy and the Harry Potter glasses.
    That song totally sucks :p

    I much prefer this one, at least it's honest

    We had Jonathan King, who was later convicted of some ‘bad stuff’ competing in the charts with this version. I was playing drums in a functions band at the time and for at least a couple of months we played it every gig, sometimes twice. Started off disliking it finished detesting it. We did manage to fit expletives into several versions of the chorus (under our breaths) to relieve the monotony.

    You're right, it's more akin to an institution in awesomeness

    Better hold some fire in case next year is worse.


    (So I reserve my nomination of anything by William Shatner, for now.)

    I had the same thing with playing "Sweet home Alabama" in cover bands, that song is just so monotonous and it goes on and on and on...

    Although I do not wish to disparage the best efforts of highly talented singers and players, I find it very difficult to listen to almost anything by the band Yes... when I could be spending that same time enjoying Debussy, Van Halen, Scriabin, Donny Hathaway, Aretha, Merle Haggard, J.S. Bach, Buck Owens, Robert Johnson, G.F. Handel, AC/DC, Deep Purple, Sonny Rollins...

    Any of Aerosmith's numerous cheese-pap ballads. Here's the worst. Enjoy:

    Ohhhhh, you mean the lyrics aren't "We bilked this city ..." ?

    You say that as if they had more than one song. "That's the way uh-huh uh-shake your BOOTY get down tonight ..."

    I have a soft spot in my heart for The Shaggs, but that's the song I use when I want to troll someone.

    Always wanted to play that one in my band, crowd roll their eyes at the opening chords, then chorus comes and the whole room breaks into song (that was my predictiin, the rest of the band disagreed so we never played it!}

    This explains a LOT about why Dana Strum is an on-stage trainwreck to this day. I don't give a damn how good a bassist he is, his stage antics make him look like a damn fool. Looks like he learned it from Vinnie Vincent.
