Some of those songs are all right…

Sholva! | 12/11/2007, 3:35 am EST

Undoubtedly the most annoying song of all time:

“Axel F” by Crazy Frog

What in the **** were people in the UK thinking when they made it number one?!

“I think you guys should add every song by Rush to the list. Geddy Lee has the most annoying voice ever, and their music is a cross between techno and The Cure-esque crap-punk.”

you serious? idiot. in no way shape or form in rush anything like the cure and or “pop punk”. you definitely need to set the hash pipe down and take a crash course on music.

Luka | 11/28/2007, 12:43 pm EST

Believe by Cher is the most annoying song ever!!! Why James Blunt & Nickelback?

Tony | 11/27/2007, 10:42 pm EST

None of these songs are annoying. And 1st place is one of my favorite songs ever, very bad list.

Bush Doctor | 11/26/2007, 8:45 pm EST

what closing time is not annoying at all neither is tubthumper

Anonymous | 11/26/2007, 4:58 pm EST

“Milk Shake” - Kelis
“Crank Dat” - Souja Boy Tell ‘Em

Jenny | 11/23/2007, 2:17 am EST

Annoying songs:

All Ricky Martin songs.
Avril Lavigne - Girlfriend (unbelievably annoying)
Crank that - Soulja Boy
Britney Spears - Oops! I did it again.
50 cent - Candy shop

Roling Stones Publisher | 11/12/2007, 7:55 pm EST

We forgot to add:

Proclaimers - 500 Miles
Chesney Hawkes - The One & Only
Annie - Chewing Gum
Oasis - Wonderwall
McFly - 5 Colours In Her Hair
Gerry & The Pacemakers - You’ll Never Walk Alone
Anything or EVERYTHING by Westlife

So many more, so little time

andrew colomy | 11/11/2007, 10:31 pm EST

“it’s peanut butter jelly time” definitely, if i have to hear that song again ill blow my brains out

carlos | 10/30/2007, 10:39 pm EST

Chumbawumba, “Tub Thumper” shouldn’t be there.

Mary | 10/28/2007, 2:59 pm EST

I agree, except with “Photograph”. I LOVE that song! I would replace Avril Lagvine’s “Girlfriend” with that.

Rockin' Roel | 10/28/2007, 4:24 am EST

So, basically, the top 20 most annoying songs are just very popular songs you’re sick of hearing all the time? I would say that that’s pretty lame. Songs I think should NOT be on this list:
- Tubthumping by Chumbawumba
- Mambo No.5 by Lou Bega
- Closing Time by Semisonic (what?), okay it may be repetitive, maybe I just like it because I discovered it, not because it was on the charts. I’ve only heard it on my computer as of yet.

Songs are basically just too hyped to that’s why they’re on this list:
- Macarena by Los Del Rio
- Wannabe by Spice Girls

Song that would have been so much better if it wasn’t Celine Dion:
My Heart Will Go On, they should’ve just kept the flute and thrown the rest away

Blue and Barbie Girl may be annoying, but it’s fun from time to time.

Tashika | 10/26/2007, 2:56 pm EST

I also think these songs are annoying:
-Fergie, “My Humps”, “Fergalicious”
-Baha Men, “Who Let The Dogs Out”
-Nickelback, “Photograph”
-James Blunt, “You’re Beautiful”
-Cher, “Believe”
But I also think these are too: Rihanna, “SOS” “Umbrella”
Avril Lavigne, “Girlfriend”
J.LO, “Jenny from the Block”
Pink, “Stupid Girl”
Hate anything from Akon or John Legend.

recyclera | 10/24/2007, 6:04 pm EST

Crank that - Soulja boy

so annoying.

S | 10/24/2007, 1:27 pm EST

The macarena song is proof that there is no god

Jah_Rastafaarian_Ghettochild | 10/21/2007, 6:04 pm EST

I think you guys should add every song by Rush to the list. Geddy Lee has the most annoying voice ever, and their music is a cross between techno and The Cure-esque crap-punk.

noname | 10/20/2007, 7:59 pm EST

hey i like FOB and Nickelback, but whatevr…and i HATE 500 miles…

I suggest you add “destenation unknown” to the list.. i mus agree that these songs are annoying worms but they are mostly nice.. destenation unknown is not one of the best but it is sure annoying..

Paige | 10/11/2007, 1:50 pm EST

I’d like to see all your attempts of songs, I’m sure they’d be even worse then this.
Haha.

thong thong thong thong thong lol.

The song that deserves to be added is “Lean Like A Cholo”. That song STILL comes on every hour.

Xyjiryo | 10/1/2007, 8:44 pm EST

What the hell? Closing Time by Supersonic? What’s so wrong with that song?

Em | 9/30/2007, 7:45 pm EST

Amara, your list is SPOT ON. :) Although I think ‘Hollaback Girl’ should be number one. That MUST be THE most annoying song in the universe.

no one important | 9/30/2007, 1:31 pm EST

OMG! Barbie Girl is so annoying! I have one thing to say, If Mambo #5 is the Disney one, it is SO NOT ANNOYING! But, “I’m a Barbie Girl In the Barbie World” is really annoying for the first line in a song. If you watch the music video on YouTube, I can see why Mattel sued Aqua, and why you guys made it 11 on the charts.
P.S. What the HECK is “AquaScope”?

Heather | 9/5/2007, 1:16 am EST

MMM-Bop should be on this list and it should be number 1 O_O

And Susan, you’re crazy, Horse with no Name is an awesome song!

Kalle | 9/3/2007, 6:14 pm EST

Anything by Hinder.

Amanda | 8/30/2007, 12:20 am EST

Most of Gwen Stefani’s solo career, esp. “Sweet Escape” ahhhhh shoot me. Natasha Bedingfield’s “Unwritten”, I hate that song with a passion!

Fizzle! | 8/23/2007, 4:12 am EST

I hate these songs with a passion:
“London Bridge” Fergie
“Nookie” Limp Bizkit
“Haaaate Meeee”(arrgghh!) Blue October
“Sugar We’re Going Down” Fall Out Boy-

The most annoying song of all time has got to be “Relax” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. It is so obnoxious that I want to grab pencils and shove them in my ears. Punctured eardrums would be pleasant compared to that piece of crap “song”.

whatever | 8/21/2007, 12:47 am EST

Breea | 8/20/2007, 3:54 am EST

I think Aqua aims to be annoying. They do it very well~ C=

Top Hat 8D | 8/8/2007, 11:25 am EST

May I point out that it is a list of the most annoying songs, and NOT a list of the worst songs ever writen~

The kind of songs that go through from your ear and hide in your brains like worms D:
And they never leave you. THOSE songs.

So Yesterday - Hilary Duff (I’ll be on my death bed singing it. It won’t ever leave my head. I hate it so~)

That Simple Plan song D :

Photograph by Nicelback??!! WTF annoying? no way, and Blue is an awesome song, those are the only 2 worth mentioning and a couple others 2 but im 2 lazy 2 put them on here.

Johnny | 7/30/2007, 7:34 am EST

WHO THE HELL MADE THIS LIST. LITERALLY EVERY SONG THAT HAS BEEN MENTIONED WAS A #1 HIT, THE PEOPLE WHO MADE THIS SIMPLY TOOK REALLY POPULAR SONGS FROM THROUGHOUT THE DECADES AND PUT THEM TOGETHER

Johnny | 7/30/2007, 7:29 am EST

lol, wtf? this is rigged, practically everyone of those songs reached number #1 on the Australian top 30 countdown

Cosmo | 7/30/2007, 6:54 am EST

This is so stupid, half of those songs were extremely popular at the time they had been released

Sam | 7/30/2007, 6:43 am EST

‘Destination Calabria’ by Alex Gaudino should be up there

feh. | 7/29/2007, 1:32 pm EST

A couple corrections ‘cos the mistakes are annoying me:

‘Rikki Don’t Lose That Number’ is by Steely Dan, not Phil Collins (er, Donald Fagen doesn’t even SOUND like Collins).

‘Calling Occupants (of Interplanetary Craft)’ is by Klaatu, not the Carpenters.

And a hearty laugh at all of you for taking this list so incredibly personally.

optimus | 7/29/2007, 8:31 am EST

its funny how almost every song on that list hit #1 in either the European or American charts, it just goes to show that everyone has their own opinion, i mean i really like ‘Blue’, but hate ‘My Humps’

haden | 7/28/2007, 10:53 pm EST

Ymca is the most annoying song in the world!

Robert K | 7/28/2007, 12:51 pm EST

The most obnoxious annoying song ever is “slow ride” by Foghat. Like nails on a chalkboard!!!!

Nissen | 7/25/2007, 4:11 pm EST

The Rolling Stones is a great band and had made a lot of good songs.. But: I Can’t Get No Satisfaction got to be the most Annoying Song ever!!

B | 7/20/2007, 12:19 am EST

i agree with calls to include crazy frog on the list. i like that “blue” got on, that was so bad. “mmm bop”, “the logical song” and that ketchup song are contenders.

tothkinson helpful review | 7/19/2007, 8:37 pm EST

Phil Collins song is Rickie don’t lose my number,
*B-52’s…..rock lobster is by far a great song.
*mc hammer….2 legit 2 quit and can’t touch this your dissing the hammer
*vanilla ice……ice ice baby guaranteed that 1 out of 3 people can rap a verse
It’s dexy and the midnight riders
*falco….rock me amedeous (sp?)
*devo…..whip it
The list could go on and on!
And your right, you should send in a list of 100 annoying songs, that was VH1 can do a Top 100 of how many mistakes you will be implementing in how you are misrepresenting the artists/songs

Bdubbs | 7/19/2007, 8:26 pm EST

Actually Tarzan and Jane was from the spinoff group Toy Box, not Aqua, so “Confused” is confused…so he really should not be making a point…the Proclamiers is by far a great song 500 miles…Unfortunately I would have to save Start me Up….it once was a great song, but sadly from the overplayed major league sporting events has now made it an annoying song….

Bobo25 | 7/16/2007, 6:38 pm EST

Leah Andreone - “It’s Alright, It’s Okay”

Moby/Gwen Stefani - “Southside”

Sheryl Crow - “If it makes you happy”

Anything by Evanescence, Creed, Train, Alanis Morissette…

~Confused~ | 7/16/2007, 5:22 pm EST

Truthfully I think the most annoying song is “Tarzan and Jane” by Aqua. I think the best song is “Lips of an Angel” by Hinder. Cuz they rock

Alex C | 7/16/2007, 5:42 am EST

Happily you are very unlikely to ever hear it, but there’s a Dinosaur Jr song, the last track on the album “Bug” called Don’t. And it just has J Mascis screaming “WHYYYYYY DON’T YOU LIIIIIIIIIIKE MEEEEEEEEEEEEEE?????!!!” in a voice that sounds like he’s being stabbed, over and over again. It’s absolutely unlistenable.

berganzamad | 7/15/2007, 5:24 pm EST

Have you ever heard Anne Murray???? It’s the most annoying music you could ever imagine, I just can’t bear it but my dad loves it. Also I would nominate all of John Denver!!!! God, I hate it so much

tothkinson | 7/12/2007, 4:17 am EST

Here are a couple more….
*phil collins….billy don’t loose my number
*thomas dolby…..blinded me with science (??????)
*B-52’s…..rock lobster
*mc hammer….2 legit 2 quit and can’t touch this (pleeeease!!)
*vanilla ice……ice ice baby
*dixie & the midnight riders (something like that)….come on eileen
*falco….rock me amedeous (sp?)
*devo…..whip it
The list could go on and on! There should be a VH1 top 100 list done on this. Between them and the E station, they have lists for everything! Then there is all the country songs…..aren’t most of them annoying? How about the new song about “ticks” by brad paisley? How stupid and annoying is that?

Nostromo | 7/9/2007, 9:31 pm EST

I can’t believe you try-hards are still arguing/listing songs - clearly & irrefutably I won with “achy-breaky heart” :)

Monsieur | 7/9/2007, 7:45 pm EST

MMM MMM MMM MMM is indeed the worst song ever. I feel like puking when i hear it. Its just like drinkin a glass of animal fat.

GOSH !!!!!!!! Avril Laviene | 7/9/2007, 6:36 pm EST

Jack | 7/8/2007, 8:29 pm EST

I quote Lester Bangs via Cameron Crowe: “99% of what passes for Rock and Roll; silence is more compelling.”

But I’ll say “I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred, or “Hangin’ Tough” by New Kids on the Block

Fran | 7/8/2007, 7:30 pm EST

Good list, but still there are so many annoying songs that they didn’t mentioned; they should have made a list of 100 songs instead of only 20.

Stevie Wonder- I just call to say I love you
Anything by REM, that voice can drive anyone to madness
Anything by Fergie
Wind it up-Gwen Stefani
Winds of change- Scorpions, just awful
Anyrhing by James Blunt
I will always love you-Whitney Hudson
All confessions on a dance floor album
How do you talk to an angel?-Jamie Walters
Many of The Beatkes songs are quite annoying
Anything Abba had sang
Another will bite the dust- Queen
Anything by Phil Collins, Boston, Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, Spandau Ballet, Michael Bolton and Pussycat Dolls
Sexyback- Justin Timberlake
Any reggueaton or vallenato song

The list just goes on and on…

zane | 7/8/2007, 3:38 pm EST

Gwen Stefani - Hollaback Girl
Avril Lavigne - Girlfriend
Black Eyed Peas - My Humps
Fergie - Fergalicious
Eminem - FACK

And pretty much most songs that have loud chanting to them and you can’t pretty much escape from them, besides FACK, which wasn’t a single. Loud chanting songs that are constantly on the radio.

Temporary Secretary, one of my least favorite Paul Mccartney songs. He’s still the best ever though… No really. And for all you bashers, Macca is cool again.

Jesus Bush | 7/8/2007, 2:48 pm EST

“Stairway to Heaven”- Led Zeppelin
should replace “My Humps”………and anything on the beatle’s white album could make this list………horrid wankers, those beatles………

Fretts | 7/8/2007, 2:11 pm EST

HAHA! I agree that “Kokomo” should have made the cut!

whitby | 7/8/2007, 12:53 am EST

anything by those annoying pulmonary endowed dames Celine Whitney etc.Eric Clapton and lastly the Grateful Dead

jaymcminn | 7/8/2007, 12:01 am EST

Paul McCartney- “Temporary Secretary” is right up at the top of my list. As is White Stripes’ “Aluminum” from White Blood Cells- makes me hit the skip button whenever I hear it. That “Barbie Girl” song- I had that stuck in my head for two days once. None of these is as annoying as Enrique Iglesias’”Hero”- I think most of my post 9-11 depression came from the endless repetition of that whiny piece of crap.

Candace | 7/7/2007, 10:18 pm EST

I really don’t understand how you could create this list without including anything by the insufferable Britney Spears, Creed, and Akon…Seroiously people WTF?

Ron | 7/7/2007, 2:53 pm EST

Surely ‘Seasons in the Sun’ should have been on here. And how about Dead Skunk in the Middle of the Road.

gobbledegook | 7/7/2007, 5:30 am EST

can’t believe everyone’s forgotten about “I swear”…who’s gonna beat that?

Dalton | 7/7/2007, 2:56 am EST

That list could have been comprised solely of nickelback songs. Man, do they ever suck!

T-Nasty | 7/7/2007, 12:23 am EST

============================== ===
HAHAHAH!!!!

I would like to thank everyone for their suggestions of awful songs! I’m amazed “Closing Time” is getting so much defense.

David | 7/7/2007, 12:15 am EST

It’s safe to say that most of today’s music is very annoying.

Old Farts | 7/7/2007, 12:09 am EST

Ok we need to add an addendum:

Kung-Fu Fighting - Karl Douglas

Old Farts | 7/7/2007, 12:03 am EST

Ok People, you have no idea what is truly bad and annoying:

Having My Baby-Paul Anka (WORST SONG EVER!)
Girlfriend-Avril Lavigne ( we are not that old)
Seasons in the Sun-Terry Jacks
Paper Roses-marie osmond ( can’t capitalize that one)
Teen Angel-Ray Peters
Tell Laura I Love Her-Ray Peterson
WildFire-America
Feelings-Mor ris Albert
You Light Up My Life-Debbie Boone
You and Me Against the World-Paul Williams
Knock Three Times on the Ceiling if You Want Me - Tony Orlando and Dawn
Teen Angel-Mark Dinning ( worth Repeating)
Space Oddity Ground Control to Major Tom - David Bowie
Muscrat Love - Captain and Tenille
Surfing Bird - The Trash Men

need we go on?

Lee | 7/6/2007, 4:23 pm EST

Kokomo-Beach Boys
My God is that a bad and annoying song….

Dino | 7/6/2007, 3:22 pm EST

Rico Suave - Riiiiicoooooo Suaaaave

This list is pretty close to perfect, but did someone really post “Hey I like . . . Rednex, “Cotton-Eyed Joe” . . . those^ are all great! “?

Pete | 7/6/2007, 2:58 pm EST

Lay off the Spice Girls! They’re good.

Anything by Oasis.

mdw225 | 7/6/2007, 1:57 pm EST

I can’t believe “Are you Jimmy Ray” did not make the list!

danny | 7/6/2007, 1:33 pm EST

umbrella by Rhianna can be added to the list though

danny | 7/6/2007, 1:31 pm EST

Hey I like some of those songs!

Crash Test Dummies, “Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm”
Rednex, “Cotton-Eyed Joe”
Eiffel 65, “Blue”
Baha Men, “Who Let The Dogs Out”
Ricky Martin, “Livin’ La Vida Loca”

those^ are all great!

JSuzart | 7/6/2007, 1:23 pm EST

“My Humps”!!! I forgot that hedious song!!!!
“Stupid Girls” - Pink
“Girlfriend” - Avril lavigne
“Wind It Up” - Gwen Stefani

agcasebeer | 7/6/2007, 11:55 am EST

2 additions:
“Seasons in the Sun” by Terry Jacks.
Don’t know the artist or title, but the song used by Heineken for their
light beer commercial, in which the singer sings about ‘don’t you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?” Almost preternaturally bad.

Most of the mentioned songs really do stink. We could probably have a top 100, easily - and nobody’s really gotten into country yet, where many of the real stinkers are.

Brady | 7/6/2007, 11:40 am EST

Puttin’ on the Ritz by Taco. No song ever recorded is as annoying and inexplicable as this one.

cbkaty | 7/6/2007, 9:28 am EST

How about Minnie Ripperton…..Loving You? Like fingernails on a chalkboard?

Ted Stickle | 7/6/2007, 9:06 am EST

Hows about Bad to the bone and Born to be wild. Those really put me in a bad mood. And anything by Avril Lavigne… hate that girl. Or those nice rap songs like “in my white T” or others that repeat the same thing over and over and over again

alternative grrl | 7/6/2007, 12:24 am EST

fergalicious by fergie! how many times do we need a spelling lesson to spell a word that doesnt even exist?! (is she trying to prove something?) you’re beautiful by james blunt. he sounds like some 12 year old going through puberty with those incredibly high screeches. and on top of that, its overplayed!

Stuart | 7/6/2007, 12:09 am EST

To get really annoying songs you’ve got to go back to the 70’s & 80’s, “World’s Greatest Mum”, “My baby takes the morning train”, “Day trip to Bangelore”, “Tell Laura I Love her”, “Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep”, anything by Bonnie Tyler, “afternoon Delight” , “Aga Doo”, “D.I.V.O.R.C.E.”, “My little Angel”, by William Shakepeare (the shame, the shame!) “Get used to it” by Roger Vidorus, “I want to make you my angel” by Mark Holden (yes him!), “Calling occupants of interplanetary craft” Carpenters

radiotvmusic | 7/5/2007, 11:25 pm EST

i honestly have to dissagree with the semisonic one. i actually like that song, and im almost certain that you can find a more annoying song (try any of daughtry’s catalouge)

Ur2real | 7/5/2007, 10:03 pm EST

Blue Oyster Cult-(Don’t Fear) The Reaper. Back in the day it was a great song. One of the best concert ever. The over kill

pshdasflkha | 7/5/2007, 8:29 pm EST

i love my humps! the Macerana is the most annoying song on that list! & yes, i agree with EVERYBODY who has posted this, Rihanna’s song, UMBRELLA = gotta go on that list! i mean, all of that “ella ella ella ella” junk; no way!

Kathryn | 7/5/2007, 3:21 pm EST

“I would do anything for love” should not be on there. It’s a WONDERFUL song

Kathryn | 7/5/2007, 3:21 pm EST

“I would do anything for love” should not be on there. It’s a WONDERFUL song

Anonymous | 7/5/2007, 2:52 pm EST

Here are some songs that should have been on the list:

Hinder-Lips of an Angel
Avril Lavigne-Girlfriend
Shop Boyz-Party Like A Rock Star
Gwen Stefani-The Sweet Escape
Hanson-MMMBop
anythin g by the Pussycat Dolls

RockStarGirlfriend | 7/5/2007, 2:08 pm EST

I enjoyed the crap music/time wastage formula–so true. There’s that Kevin Lyttle song, “Turn Me On” which is worse than nails on a chalkboard.

what's that smell? | 7/5/2007, 1:41 pm EST

james blunt’s actually not that bad but that “You’re beautiful” is way overplayed. Also i agree with the semisonic fans. “Closing time” will never be a classic, but it’s not that annoying either.
My pics are
“Rollin’” or, hell, ANY song by Limp Bizkit.
That goddamn “Hard to Breath” song by Maroon 5. Someone needs to kick Adam Lavine in the nuts for that piece of shit.
And quite frankly, I’m shocked that nobody’s mentioned “CrazyinLove.” That song is almost as annoying as Beyonce herself.

blahblahb lah!!!!! | 7/5/2007, 1:31 pm EST

All rap is gay! It is settled! It’s not even singing its talking like supery un humanly fast!

laurie | 7/5/2007, 12:33 pm EST

Hey, leave Semisonic alone! One of the very few indie bands on your list…i.e. not assembled by a company for the purpose of making money! I can’t believe Closing Time made the list and MMMBop didn’t. It belongs at #2, with “My Heart Will Go On” at #1

pandagirl | 7/5/2007, 12:25 pm EST

How about, “you remind me of my Jeep” by R.Kelly ( or something stupid like that ). ALso the “Lip Gloss” song makes me want to slice my throat open. The song about, “im a hustler, im a im a hustler”, makes me want to jump out of my vehicle while it is still moving down the interstate. Also, anything by Destinys Child (puke), three most offensive females ever, and “I need to know” by Marc Antony, which happens to be playing in my office presently. Pretty Good List…..

She Devil | 7/5/2007, 12:19 pm EST

London bridge - Fergie
London bridge - Fergie
Hollaback girl - Gwen
Milkshake - Kelis

Oh yeah, and Bon Jovi’s “who says you can’t go home” and the part “it’s alright it’s alright it’t alright…” x10 that makes me really aggessive and I am such a pacifist

Anonymous | 7/5/2007, 12:04 pm EST

“I wanna be your girlfriend” = Iceberg that sinks SS Sanity

“Umbrella” = wtf is this even considered a song? It’s just her saying “Umbrella ella ella” over infintum.

Maroon 5

kate | 7/5/2007, 10:49 am EST

all of the songs above make me die a little bit inside every time i hear them, well done.

though my personal all-time kill myself song is marc anthony’s “i need to know”

DREW | 7/5/2007, 10:40 am EST

What about that stupid “my name is Luca” song…

and “Roseanna” by Toto.

alternative grrl | 7/5/2007, 9:16 am EST

the first time i heard it it was stuck in my head for a week!! it was incredibly annoying!

Stiv | 7/5/2007, 8:54 am EST

The Toadies song is “Possum Kingdom”.

Some others that should have been mentioned…”Billy Don’t Be a Hero” and “We Built this City”!!!

Jimbo | 7/5/2007, 8:32 am EST

errr, Toadies that is

Jimbo | 7/5/2007, 8:30 am EST

How can anyone forget Toads “So Help Me Jesus” ?
Closing Time SUX too.
Anything by Gwen Stefani , Avril Lavigne, Nickleback or Eminem

Dingus | 7/5/2007, 7:50 am EST

Cut off their ‘Air Supply’ and send ‘ToTo’ to the pound.

They are the all-time worst, but at least didn’t pretend to rock-out dude like the derivitive nu-rock crap.

yamum | 7/5/2007, 4:08 am EST

The Pusscat Dolls. What is this thing, singing about loosening their butts.. What?? It is buttons? I was sure they were singing about butts.. Still, it is a very bad song.

Jack | 7/5/2007, 12:50 am EST

Robbie Williams…anything he sings!

After a billion more plays, which are certain to happen, Stairway to Heaven will still be an indestructable masterpiece, just like the vast majority of the rest of Led Zeppelin’s output. In the annoying category, I could not agree more with the choice of the entire Foreigner catalogue. Just hideous pop-rock, I’m still shocked that’s not obvious to everyone.

Alex | 7/4/2007, 3:32 pm EST

Well, you forgot about Umbrella by: Rihanna

viceroy | 7/4/2007, 2:40 pm EST

damn tall girl | 7/4/2007, 1:46 pm EST

Hey Jackboy, not to defend the remake of Tainted Love (which sucks) but the Soft Cell version was a remake of an r & b song.

Joe Dorodo | 7/4/2007, 11:31 am EST

“Stairway To Heaven” - Led Zeplin, it was ok the first BILLION times it was played on the radio, but it has fallen deep into the annoying category.

Entire Foreigner discography

Entire Los Lonely Boys discography.

Cindy Lauper, all of it.

Bic Flicker | 7/4/2007, 9:30 am EST

Where the heck is “Freebird”? It qualifies as the most annoying song AND universal request anywhere there’s live music.

damn tall girl | 7/4/2007, 9:00 am EST

Dire Straits Money for Nothing. I love them but this song sucked.

Anything by Shania Twain or Def Leppard that Mutt Lange produced.

jay | 7/4/2007, 8:35 am EST

“I love the nightlife, I gotta boogie, on the disco ra-haiiiide, oh yeah.”
- “I Love The Nightlife”, Alicia Bridges

If hell exists, surely this is playing on the loudspeakers.

Oh, and “Kokomo” by the Beach Boys too. If you’ve got John Stamos playing drums for you, your decision making abilities are clearly impaired.

jimmy | 7/4/2007, 7:52 am EST

NO NO NO!!!!!!

Michael From Greenland | 7/3/2007, 11:53 pm EST

Madonna`s Hung Up is My Number One Most annoying song, and Madonna The Most Annoying Artist Right Now.

DNA | 7/3/2007, 8:55 pm EST

i don’t agree with everything on the list - some are guilty pleasures. but it’s a great list, nonetheless. what about that “what if god were one of us?” song? that should have made the list.

Yenrac | 7/3/2007, 7:19 pm EST

What about that “I would walk 500 miles song”…..irritating as can be.

Another one is that even worse New Radicals song, “You Got the Rhythym in You”

I guess you could also throw Meatloaf’s “Objects in the rearview mirror, they appear closer than they are”

Don’t forget Tony Basil’s “Mickey” it’s in the worst song of all time category….

Finally (since these are all off the top of my head) I’d have to add in Paul McCartney’s “Ebony and Ivory” saccharine and way too cuddly-cute. Paul was once awesome, now he settles too much for the maudlin, although he’s getting better recently, he’s still not quite there as “Dance Tonight” or the album before’s “At the Mercy” prove.

I’m sure there’s plenty others….

ahhh some of these songs SHOULD NOT be on this list. as far as “your beautiful” and “my heart will go on”…and “my humps”. who wrote this? some people just don’t have good taste in real music.

John | 7/3/2007, 5:50 pm EST

I want in on this rant. You caught many of the songs that really tick me off. I’d like to add Beck - Loser.

And for some reason, I love Mambo no 5, :-)

You americans are so lucky…you thankfully didn’t have the choice to put “Xavier Naidoo” on this list.

Steve V. | 7/3/2007, 2:59 pm EST

“Inagaddadavida” - Iron Butterfly.

Yeah, showing my age, but I never liked those retardedly long songs that had seemingly endless guitar, then keyboard, then drum solos. DJ’s love ‘em, ‘tho. They’re called “bathroom break songs.” You know…the 11-15 minute songs that let you REALLY use the bathroom when you have to?? C’mon, you know what I’m talking about. The problem is that these types of songs should have been left in the bathroom, too.

I had completely forgotten about that godawful ‘Closing Time’ song. Thanks for reminding me!

People forgot that J.Lo song from a few years ago that had the saxaphone loop that played over, and over and over and over ad naseum…puke!!! (I forget what it’s called)

Jackboy | 7/3/2007, 2:23 pm EST

Blue October–that song that goes “Hate me todaaaaaay! Hate me tomorrooooow!!”

UH Yeah, I hate you and your song. Is this song supposed to be deep? It just sucks a** and destroys my faith in good music in this day and age.

Jackboy | 7/3/2007, 2:21 pm EST

“I’m in love with a Stripper” Trashy can be fun, but this is JUST TRASHY.

The R&B remake of Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love” from this past year–ATTENTION RAPPERS: REMAKING A CLASSIC SONG DOESN’T GUARANTEE A DECENT SONG.

The R&B remake of Spandau Ballet’s “True” from this year. GOD AWFUL, PATHETIC. see above.

Jackboy | 7/3/2007, 2:17 pm EST

All the whiny male rockers of the awful early ’00s “BELLOW & OVER EMOTE” trend: Staind, Nickelback, Linkin Park.

Aerosmith, “I don’t wanna miss a thing” . Schmaltz at its all time worst.

Any Lenny Kravitz song. This man can do nothing but REPEAT his sound over and over again in every BLAND song.

Bon Jovi–nearly all his songs. Schmaltzy as well.

Sting: “Desert Rose”. Pseudo-hipster/New Age.

no one has mentioned this years worst song, “lip gloss” by lil mama. if you haven’t heard it yet consider yourself lucky

The Reflex - Duran Duran

Chad | 7/3/2007, 9:50 am EST

No doubt that “My humps” is the most annoying song ever….James “I’m a big pansy” Blunt’s beautiful song is a close 2nd! 1 song is about humps, the 2nd is about a stalker….ridiculous that these songs get air time!!!

To this day I still can’t figure out what “Diddy” is famous for. Kanye’s the new Diddy and they’re both absolutely talentless.

Tug of war | 7/3/2007, 9:19 am EST

The most annoyings songs ever written are “I just called to say I love you” by Stevie Wonder(makes you wish you were deaf), “Mr. Lonely” by Akon (he deserves to be lonely for the rest of his life if he doesn’t stop putting out this crap), anything by Eminem and all of the other “I’m so tough” fake rappers

auramac,I couldn’t agree more,I had to turn off the tv,his performance was making me sick as well! Please tell me that phony and Kayne are not going to be performing on Live Earth this weekend. I live in Canada and I hope our stations will be broadcasting from England so I can see my fave the Chili Peppers!!

Mr. Lonely by Akon
Life by Des’ree:
‘I don’t wanna see a ghost
It’s the sight that I fear most
I’d rather have a piece of toast
Watch the evening news’
AAAAAAAARGHH!

damn tall girl | 7/3/2007, 8:42 am EST

I agree wholeheartedly with Nate.
Britney, Black Eyed Peas, Spice Girls are what they are- money making machines for themselves and their record companies- they shouldn’t be taken as anything approaching classic. It’s like trying to put Us Weekly or OK magazine in the same category as James Joyce.

northwest | 7/3/2007, 8:41 am EST

by the looks of it most of you are to young to have heard this song but if you ever do you will have to agree that “Patches” is the worst song ever recorded by modern man

Jan Brun | 7/3/2007, 8:31 am EST

I´d just like to say the following
“I just called to say I love you” by Stevie Wonder. What clicked?
Why didn´t it make top three? Is it because of his handicap?

Jan Brun, Sweden

damn tall girl | 7/3/2007, 8:22 am EST

More trash…

B-52s Roam– and to think I loved their first 2 albums.

Bon Jovi- Wanted Dead or Alive.

Santana- Maria Maria.

Nate | 7/3/2007, 8:21 am EST

I think what people are forgetting here is that pop trifle is exactly that and not trying to be much else. So, shitting on songs like “My Humps” and anything by Britney Spears doesn’t make much sense to me. Shitting on unctuous and impossibly earnest songs like “Photograph” by Nickelback and those irritating hits by 3 doors down…I think that’s the more important place to start.

Scott | 7/3/2007, 8:18 am EST

Anything and everything by Kanye West and P Diddy is an aurol abortion.

Nate | 7/3/2007, 8:16 am EST

I have to cast my vote for either of the following both by Billy Joel: “The Entertainer” or “It’s Still Rock And Roll To Me”. Both of those songs make me want to bomb with Napalm buildings full of Billy Joel records.

Jeremy | 7/3/2007, 8:16 am EST

Right on to Mr. Negative with “500 Miles”. I can’t believe I forgot that one. When you really start to get into this, it’s amazing how many downright hellish songs have been popular over the years.

damn tall girl | 7/3/2007, 8:15 am EST

“She’s got a smile that it seems to me/Reminds me of childhood memories”

Some of the worst lyrics EVER! By the dreadful overrated Guns N Roses. What the hell do those 2 lines mean? How exactly do something remind you of a memory?

Other annoying “songs”– Love Shack by the B-52s. Anything by Nickelback, Fall Out Boy.

Well I’m not surprised Nickelback made the list… those simple ass white trash lunkheads deserve all the hatred. But y’all might as well have included all post-grunge and grunge-pop or wannabe-alternative bands and their piece of crap hits, like Collective Soul’s “December”, or Gin Blossoms’, uuuhh.. oh, wait, they didn’t have a hit song, they were just around ( and annoying as hell ), and I read Ugly Kid Joe somewhere, good choice, but let’s not forget Three Days Grace either, and their own rendition of “I hate everything about you”….it almost makes the Ugly Kid Joe version sound like an evergreen classic, HAH!

I still stand by (can’t friggin stand) Todd rundgren’s “I don’t Wanna Work, I Just Wanna Bang On De Drum All Day…”

tERRY bOAKE | 7/3/2007, 1:56 am EST

“Hey Baby” - No Doubt
God that song sucks. Idiotic lyrics on repeat.

“You Are Loved” - Josh Groban.
A seemingly strange choice, but the typical ballad with nothing profound to say with an orchestral, almost operatic production makes it reek of smelly smelly cheese.

“Hi My Name Is” - Eminem.
I never understand how this was his breakout song. I detested it the moment I heard it.

ou812 | 7/3/2007, 1:41 am EST

What, no Diane Warren songs?

Jose | 7/3/2007, 1:09 am EST

Someone mentioned Starship’s “We Built This City”, but that song is in another league entirely. That song goes beyond merely annoying, or horrible, or even Eli-Roth-type-of-extreme-tortu re. It can’t be put into words.

andrew | 7/3/2007, 1:08 am EST

“Closing Time” is great, it has no reason to up there. “Hollaback Girl” and “Girlfriend” NEED to be on that damn list.

Whitney Houston - “I Will Always Love You” A woman in England would actually get seizures listening to that song, it was reported. Me? I just hated it.

Yeah uh… no one’s saying “Closing Time” is a candidate for greatest song ever, but it really wasn’t that annoying. Seems to be the one thing we all agree on.

A “rare” misstep for a rolling stone list…

probably the most accurate list i’ve ever seen on here. the only change i might make is to replace crash test dummies with any gwen stefani solo song. i don’t like crash test dummies, but that song isn’t as annoying the other songs on this list.

“Closing Time” shouldn’t be on the list…other than that, not bad.

rudy | 7/2/2007, 4:55 pm EST

gwen’s “the sweet escape” should of been on the list. that is an annoying song.

Jose | 7/2/2007, 4:54 pm EST

Liquid Feces | 7/2/2007, 4:53 pm EST

Grease is novelty, but yes, Summer Nights is very annoying. Do they still play this song in bars ??? If so, it’s another good reason not to go back !!!

Doof Dog | 7/2/2007, 4:22 pm EST

Listen to the Eminem song “Fack.” I know it’s not a single, and so probably should not make this list, but I dare someone to listen to it and tell me it’s not the most annoying human creation in history.

TankCat | 7/2/2007, 4:19 pm EST

The entire soundtrack to Grease

NYC Nate | 7/2/2007, 4:19 pm EST

“Grilfriend” - Avril Lavigne anyone? It’s not even a year old, yet I’ve jumped out of 17 windows already because of it.

TankCat | 7/2/2007, 4:16 pm EST

I get knocked down! But I get up again! You’ll never be able to keep me down! I get knocked down! But I get up again! You’ll never be able to keep me down! I get knocked down! But I get up again! You’ll never be able to keep me down! I get knocked down! But I get up again! You’ll never be able to keep me down! I get knocked down! But I get up again! You’ll never be able to keep me down!

And so on.

SteveS | 7/2/2007, 4:13 pm EST

And, do we really need to count the novelty songs that found their way to the top of the list ??? Yes, novelty songs tend to be overplayed, lousy, and downright annoying, so that’s a given. It would be interesting to see this list minus the novelties, and expanded to include a couple more decades !!!

Katie | 7/2/2007, 4:09 pm EST

Tom’s Diner by Suzanne Vega, anyone? The song had meaning but omg, that de de deda was SO annoying and is in fact becoming stuck in my head again as I type this since I’ve thought about it again.

PS - Ugly Kidd Joe - everything about you was pretty annoying as well

Nicolas | 7/2/2007, 4:04 pm EST

“We Don’t Play Guitars”!!!!!
That thing makes me wanna shoot myself and everyone around me so they don’t suffer with that song!

James Garfield | 7/2/2007, 4:00 pm EST

I second Daniel Powter. “Bad Day”s are caused by that song.

T | 7/2/2007, 3:48 pm EST

“Jenny From The Block” should top the list

bobbyJ | 7/2/2007, 3:47 pm EST

Daniel Powter- god awful

yeah | 7/2/2007, 3:43 pm EST

I don’t really understand “Closing Time” being on there either. Why is that one singled out out of all of the one-hit wonder alt. pop bands from the mid to late ’90s?

SteveS | 7/2/2007, 3:40 pm EST

So, the limits of really bad music DOESN’T reach back to the 70s ??? The oldest song on the list is Wham ?!?!?! I had a feeling that would happen, and using that criteria, James Blunt gets the award for worst song of the last 25 years, in my book.

lol | 7/2/2007, 3:32 pm EST

man! where are the Britney Spears’ songs, and the Paris Hilton’s songs???? other than that..great list!

Rudy | 7/2/2007, 3:27 pm EST

Great list.

jungleland | 7/2/2007, 3:25 pm EST

This is the only mention of Black Eyed Peas I want to see for the rest of 2007 (they’ve earned it)

Take out Meatloaf and James Blunt

and the Paris Hilton song isn’t bad (and way better than Fergie)

Cowboy | 7/2/2007, 3:12 pm EST

That song by the new radicals “Dont let go, you got the music in you…”
oh god its in my head…

eric | 7/2/2007, 3:06 pm EST

p.s. “Closing Time” isn’t even CLOSE to being annoying enough to make this list.

eric | 7/2/2007, 3:02 pm EST

sooooooooooooo glad “Photograph” made the cut. how about a special list for the rest of the songs performed by hinderbackdown lifedaughtrycreed?

david | 7/2/2007, 3:00 pm EST

ok, Paris hilton is far worse than james blunt. Im nota big fan, but hes not that bad.

sy | 7/2/2007, 2:51 pm EST

Bones McCoy | 7/2/2007, 2:33 pm EST

America - “Horse With No Name”

Mr Negative | 7/2/2007, 1:59 pm EST
