    Horrifying as it is, at least it's a cover.

    I think you're on a winner here. Subsequent verses could explore how each garment got it's stain.
    You could be the husband who suspects his wife is cheating (or vice versa), or go dark and be a serial killer. o_Oo_Oo_O

    You're not the only one who mentioned that song, could you explain where the bile comes from?

    Because Focus is a prog Rock band with some of the finest musicians from their era, so that song wasn't made by inept people without even a hint of talent.

    Why are you people including that one as being among the worst music ever made?

    Temporary secretary by Pmac might be one of the worst songs I can think of. The synth riff is almost painful to my ears and pmac being like “I know how hard it is for ladies to stay on the right track”

    So dang corny !!! What is he thinking when he makes these granny lyrics ?hahah

    And to think that Bernie Taupin had a hand in this flop .
    Haven't read the entire thread , but I nominate Father Christmas or whatever that hideous thing by ELP was called .

    I love CCR, but with a voice like Fogerty's you have to be a bit cautious. I find just this one song particularly grating. Sorry.

    Too many to list, so I couldn't narrow it down to just one, but I'll do my best to keep it to a minimum:

    - First of all, so much '80s. I could name a hundred '80s songs that qualify for "lousiest" without breaking a sweat. A lot of classics came out of that generation, but let's face it, if you mine nuggets of gold out of an absolute mountain of dreck, is it really gold?

    - Back in my mis-spent youth, I was always up for the unmitigated chaos of any given Butthole Surfers playlist. Then the '90s brought this abomination:



    - I know quite a lot of people really dig this guy, and he's made some good tunes, but this song is about as exciting as [insert something catastrophically monotonous here]. I get the idea behind the song, but damn...


    - I found this song on the internet. It makes me cringe badly. I can't even link it here.
    DON'T search for Bart Baker "look into my eyes ...". Seriously, DON'T. I won't be responsible for what happens if you do.
    Seriously.

    How many times has “We Didnt Start The Fire“ been mentioned ?

    Well I’m doing it again ! :lol:

    A lot Billy Joel would suffice as well (Pee-anno Man for starters)

    And still I haven't gotten an answer.

    Was it over exposure, are you tired of the song because you heard it too often?

    So once again, PLEASE TELL ME WHERE THE HATE COMES FROM!

    "Whats Up" by 4 Non Blondes is my go to lousy song. I won't punish anyone here with the actual song, I actually prefer this version by a mile.
