    Yeah sure, but those lyrics!
    So sublime, so meaningful.


    Oh, who am I kidding, they suck...

    There are plenty of song I don't like that I never need to hear again.

    So I'll sacrifice something I actually like, but nonetheless it's overplayed, and has been overplayed for decades, that I never need to hear again - the entire "Dark Side of the Moon" album.

    I was quite surprised when I heard Rush's "Feedback" album and liked it.

    Of course, it's them covering other people's songs, so...

    Back in the day, I saw their car in a highway rest stop, maybe in Indiana. It was towing a tiny, U-Haul-like, enclosed trailer with the Ohio Express logo on the side. That's just one of my many significant brushes with fame.

    Don't Stop Me Now by Queen.


    I've heard three times in the last few weeks and I cringe every time it's on.

    Well, that's seven kinds of bad, but it appeals to a specific demographic. It's the music video equivalent of a "young readers" pop culture fiction book. It's dance pop, and perhaps the majority of dance pop is just 'content' you can move to.

    As a very dear, very jaded woman friend in NYC says, "If you don't understand it, you've probably never been a teenage girl."

    The vid is kids with money, "partyin'," cars, dresses, and makeup, with their parents seemingly out of the country. If that's the focus, I truly don't get the sequence that's cut in of the guy, alone, driving in his car.

    Every time it comes on the radio it’s like “sea urchin....urchin, urchin, urchin.” What, did they write that song after tide pooling?

    Yes, but selected tracks; Black Dog, Rock And Roll and When The Levee Breaks (which is my favourite LZ track) from 4, and all of 5 apart from D'yer Maker and the Godawful Crunge.

    I think Zep phoned 5/HotH in. There's not a 'classic' LZ track on it.

    I'll agree with somebody who posted Seven Nation Army.
    Not a terrible song but it makes me change the radio station immediately.
    I like a lot of other WS songs and it seems odd that this is the one that gets repeated airplay over and over and over.

    I'll give you that one.

    It's no Whole Lotta Love or Dazed and Confused though :)

    We built this City, because it is obviously the worst song ever made. I was forced to listen to it a thousand times on cassette as a kid because my step sister always got what she wanted.

    “American Pie” and “What’s up” are in that top 5 for sure. But I haven’t seen anyone post “Tempted by the fruit of another” yet?? That may be my #2. I’d round out my top 5 with “Life is a Highway”. All instant cringe songs.

    There are no classic rock songs that can come close to those. Not even Sweet Home or Foreigner or Queen. I guess that talk box “do you Feel like I do” might get the closest. Or Meatloaf

    Anything Southern rock (hate that crap) but especially "Sweet Home Alabama".
    Anything by Tom Petty.

    There seems to be two major categories... songs that were just pure rubbish from the first listen, and then songs that are actually pretty kickass but just became horribly overplayed. (Familiarity breeds contempt?)
