    In Response to Re: The Songs You Hate : I like that song. It's funny , when I first read the O.P. , I thought I would have a million of these , but then I realize there aren't too many true rock songs I hate. Most of the songs that make me sick come from what would be considered the pop genre. I have a kid who works with me who is in a heavy metal band and he is constantly kidding me about the fact that I like the Pet Shop Boys. He finds it kind of funny that I can like Ozzy, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Scorpions, Blue Oyster Cult and that I can also like the Pet Shop Boys and Tears for Fears. Another group I like ,and people think it's odd, is ABBA. Most people just can't come to grips with a heavy metal fan who likes ABBA, too.

    Agree and agree and agree.

    I liked Eye of the Tiger too. And I like most of the hard rock groups you mentioned -- not big on Megadeth -- and I like ABBA too and other groups/performers that are far from being metal or hard rock.

    And most of the songs that I would list as hating are in the pop genre too, not rock, although I'm sure there are songs in this category I just can't think of at the moment.

    "American Pie" - so bad, it makes me want to emigrate. "Total Eclipse of the Heart" - this must be what they play in hell "Come to My Window" - ...and throw me out of it "Drive" - The Cars - Great band, terrible song "Invisible Touch" - Genesis ('nuff said) "Jeremy - Pearl Jam - again, great band, terrible song Anything by Goo Goo Dolls, Gin Blossoms, Creed, Nickleback, and most of "sober" Aerosmith.

    I can agree with some of this except:
    I like American Pie -- I love the symbolism and lyrics, that it honors the loss of Buddy Holly. It is a classic in my book.

    I like Drive. In fact, I like everything off the Heartbeat City album. 

    Total Eclipse -- Hey I like it. I'm a big fan of Jim Steinman's writing and producing style. And I like Bonnie Tyler's voice -- the raspiness gives it a bit of soul. Plus, this song was big when I was starting college and it brings back some great memories.

    In Response to Re: The Songs You Hate : Agreed - China Girl is not one of my fav Bowie tracks. Posted by jesseyeric
    Perhaps you prefer the Iggy Pop version? I am not sure what is not to like about many of the songs listed here, Cocaine ( not the pro-drugs song everyone thinks it is but more of a warning to the listener... it is a cover of a J.J.Cale original), China Girl features some great vocal by Bowie and some hot licks from SRV. "We Built this City" is a very "over the top pop" song which I think many of the old Jefferson Airplane/Starship fans don't want to be associated with, but it isn't really "choke on your own vomit" horrible, but certainly not one of their best. What I dislike about the Kid Rock song is it basically is not so much a cover as a direct rip-off...I guess these days they refer to this as a "tribute".

    I think you and I have a lot of the same taste in music, although you like a lot of stuff I've never heard of or simply don't listen too. I can't stand China Girl. I definitely isn't one of my favorite Bowie songs. And I agree with your assessment of "We Built this City".

    Anything ever played on Magic 106.7, as it seems every retail entity I ever worked for insisted on playing it ALL DAY. How do you have a radio station that spans music from like four decades, but only play the same 30 songs a day, over and over? Most of the music is terrible to begin with, but even the good stuff is ruined the hundreth time around. Thanks a lot, magic.

    I despise 'Hey Soul Sister' by Train and everything it stands for...its blatantly contrived and confectionary commercialism.  The lyrics are among the worst ever.

    Hey soul sister
    Ain't that Mister Mister
    On the radio, stereo
    The way you move ain't fair, you know 
    Hey soul sister
    I don't wanna miss
    A single thing you do
    Tonight

    Some of the other words are even more gag-worthy than those.

    Re: The Songs You Hate

    I finally realized that just because my radio tells me I should like certain bands, I don't have to.  This led to a tossing of all my Pearl Jam (except "Jeremy" and "Black"), a significant pare-down of my Metallica catalog, and a no-guilt feeling about my detest for all things AC/DC.

    Though bad music can make even the best poem awful, I'm generally a lyric girl.  I despise lyrical arrogance, unless I'm sure it's done tongue-in-cheek or as an artist's suicide prevention method.  AC/DC is just pure arrogance- the double-chinned, plastic-smiled antagonist in Sublime's "Date Rape".  I listen to music to relax, sing along, feel good about myself, and escape my daily pit of despair.  I don't need to bring the worst parts of the pit to my happy place.

    And I might add you can tell the time of day by which of those 30 songs are playing at the moment. 

    Not sure they qualify for Rock n Roll but anything by Air Supply - ick!

    Def Leppard - Armageddon It Pour Some Sugar on Me was bad enough, but when they followed that up with this piece of junk, I thought 'OK, these guys think they can get away with anything now'.  It's a terrible pun to begin with, and it's just a dumb song with a really annoying fat bubble-gum-metal sound.  What had been a pretty good band was obviously just in it to score more money and chicks now.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    The reason I originally brought China Girl into the discussion is b/c I  figured it would not get the popular vote for being that bad a song, eventhough I think it's terrible.  Full disclosure: I don't like Bowie much at all and China Girl truly grates on my nerves.

    I appreciate the differences of opinion, and the reasons behind them, especially when people express sentimental reasons for their attachment to a song (college, an old flame, etc.) 

    A couple more for me:  

    Billy Joel - Uptown Girl (the worst)  and just about everything else

    Phil Collins - Every song, and all the cover songs he ruined, too!  

    Great discussion!!!!!

    There's more Phil Collins I hate than like -- especially hate most of Collins-era Genesis, although there are a few songs I like.

    I agree about Uptown Girl, but there's more of Billy Joel that I like.

    That's the best you can do is read me a list of several singles that were written in 1962. You have got to do better than that.

    Alternative owes to the Beatles - Revolver

    Metal owes to the Beatles - Helter Skelter

         I love the Beatles but they did a poor rendition of "Shout" on one of their early albums. I'm not talking about "Twist and Shout" but the song: "Shout" that was made a hit by the Isely Brothers and also popularized by Otis Day and the Knights in the "Animal House" movie. The Beatles had very high standards, so it amazed me they would include a below average arrangement even in an album. I like the song "Shout" when it is performed the right way. All of this is only my opinion, someone else may hear things differently.

    I am good with all of it.

    The Hysteria album by Def Lep is a very strange recording in a lot of ways. It was a departure from their basic sound. When you consider the following:

    Rick Allen's accident
    The failed attempts with Jim Steinman as producer
    The need to surpass Pyromania
    Mutt Lange's ego - afterall, he did help bring them the new heights.

    By 1987, many bands had already started trying to duplicate the winning formula of Pyromania. For me, Rocket, Women, Gods of War, Run Riot and Hysteria are terriffic songs.

    AC/DC will always have their detractors.

    As for The Beatles, they are hated by many. One guy named Scaffudi (Something like that) wrote a complete diatribe about how bad they are. But Boogeyman's comment is almost troll like. But I accept it. You can hate the Yankees but will acknowledge the greatness of Mo, Ruth, etc. The Beatles changed the way people looked and listened to popular music.

    I would be interested in reading why/how the Beatles are "bad". My guess is that logic doesn't enter into the explanation. That's like saying the Lakers are a bad team or Tiger Woods is a bad golf player. I may be a red sox fan, but you won't hear me yelling out "yankees s*ck"; to me that's just childish. The Beatles are only one of the most, if not the most influential bands in pop music, and they broke up 40 years ago.
