Not to start a thread about wallowing in negativity, but, some of us in the WP thought this would be interesting.

What are some of the worst songs by your favorite bands, in your opinion, and why?

Now, the question is not necessarily what songs you are sick of...example, I love AC/DC and "You Shook Me All Night Long" is a great tune, but it's played beyond to death.

The original conversation started with a couple Grateful Dead tunes, "If The Shoe Fits" vs. "From The Heart Of Me."

Personally, and this is nothing nothing nothing against the ABB or specifically Dickey, but I can't stand "Ramblin' Man." I have never thought it even sounds like the ABB at all. However, if you love it, you love it!

I'm also a big Rush fan, they had a song off the Hold Your Fire album called "Tai Shan" that was one of modern music's biggest mistakes.

The best part of Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother is the album cover. After that...

Neil Young - his experimentation and devotion to pushing boundaries and expanding artistically are truly amazing and one of the things I've always loved about him. That said...Everybody's Rockin' with The Shocking Pinks...didn't get it then, don't get it now. (But, I love Trans...go figure )

What say you?

Phish - "Wading In The Velvet Sea"
ABB - "Good Clean Fun"
Mule - "Bad Little Doggie"

Those are songs that I least appreciate when I'm in attendance.

LOL, Good Topic.....

The Who - You Better You Bet
Pearl Jam - Last Kiss

I have never heard any of the ABB tunes from after Enlightened Rogues, until Seven Turns. I simply have no interest in checking any of them out either....No offense to any players etc, but the whole Keytar Concept makes my stomach turn. Just My Opinion.

I am sure I will continue to think of a few, and will post as I think of them....

I was the one who put up the If The Shoe Fits by the GD.

I also can't stand a lot of the songs on the Black Crowes Lions disk, even though they are a favorite band of mine.

Babe - Styx - the beginning of the end of the beginning.

Kilroy Was here album - Styx - awful pop music about banning Rock & Roll. They should have banned Dennis DeYoung. Oh, wait, they eventually did.

Hold Your Fire album - Rush - Saw them on this tour and was bored to tears for most of the show because they insisted on playing tons of songs from it. What a steaming pile of crap.

I Don't Want To Miss A Thing - Aerosmith - it could have been anybody, why did it have to be the Bad Boys from Boston? Why did Joe Perry allow this crap? I lost a lot of respect for one of my top 5 bands when this came out. They were already on the downward spiral with:

Cryin', Amazing, What It Takes, Angel, Crazy, Hole In My Soul - Aerosmith - but at least they wrote/co-wrote those. They didn't even try on IDWTMAT. Diane Warren wrote it; and it shows.

it's not that I don't like ballads. Aerosmith has many wonderful ballads that I love like "You See Me Crying," "Home Tonight," "Janie's Got A Gun," and their cover of "Cry Me A River" is pretty good too. Styx has tons of good ones too. I just don't like the saccharin sweet power pop dreck. "Suite Madame Blue" = Awesome & "Don't Let It End" = Dennis DeYoung scribblings on toilet paper tha should have been flushed.

Ok, what else?

Atom Heart Mother - Pink Floyd - the song and the album are awful but Roger Waters' tune "If" is pretty good. I've tried to embrace this album many times because they were really going for something far outside their comfort zone and I appreciate that but UGH. It's terrible. So is Umma Gumma - biggest waste of plastic in history. Never should have been put on CD. The high fidelity makes it worse.

Neil Young - I'm one of those people who actually likes most his "non-neil young" albums of the 80's but I just can't stand "Landing On Water."

I agree. I kinda feel sorry for the Mule fan who doesn' like BLD. I mean, you are GONNA hear it. I guess the silver lining is that you can party longer in the parking lot than most people because they often lead off with that song.

I have to agree with Bhawk about "Tai Shan". That song is turrble. I was just about to throw in a vote for their "I Think I'm Going Bald" -- I hated that song when I was 15, but I just went back and listened (thanks, youtube) and now I kinda dig that song.

For me, there are some songs on "Pet Sounds" that I don't even know the names of because they're so awful. I know some people revere that album, and I really like most of it, but there are some songs on there that make me make a face like somebody farted.

Allman Brothers - Different strokes for different folks - I love the studio version of Old Before My Time - 90% of the Arista material you can have.

Van Halen - Jump (my HS buddies and I felt like crying the first time we heard it----literally)

Neil Young - close to half his material. The other 50-60% is some of my favorite music ever recorded.

Ryan Adams - He did his "Smiths" era in the mid 90s and lost me but came back to earthy/country influenced rock. He is similar to Neil Young in that his good material is absolutely amazing. He needed a quality control manager for the past decade.

AC/DC - Sink the Pink et al

Paul Rodgers - Radioactive. Really, you get together with Jimmy Page in a match made in heaven in a group called the Firm and that is what you give us?? Really.

Loads of 60s-70s artists embarrassed themselves at one point or another in the 1980s. These lists could be just from that era. The best stuff from '80s was from bands formed just before or during that decade. Holdovers didn't fair as well.

Word. I am really hard pressed to come up with another song that not only was a bands' highest charting "Hit"...but also the one most far away from that band's signature sound. Growling vocals, twin guitars and gritty blues based material pushed on by a guitarist disguised as a bass player...
