What song makes you want to stab your eardrums with a fork? (I'll go first: Sting, Fields of Gold. Heard tonight in HOME DEPOT.)
Shania Twain. Anything by her.

I had a quick dash across the room to change the station earlier to avoid a catastrophe.

4 Non Blondes - What's up. God I can't stand that song.

"Betcha By Golly Wow" by the Stylistics and "KoKoMo" by the Beach Boys. Actually, most songs by both of those groups. (Do not lecture me on my Beach Boys hate. It is legendary and eternal.)

That John Mayer song about daughters and mothers and fathers and birthing ... yuk.

I'm just going to go with Lean Like a Cholo. A while back I might have said Souljah Boy, but Spongebob made me love it in spite of my better judgment.

Have you seen Soulja Pooh? It's genius.

Soulja Pooh: This video is not available in your country.

anyway, still works as embedded video, apparently, so I just saw it via some blog. weirdness.

It happens for me sometimes, taz.

My current most hated song is Surfin Bird, but that's Family Guy and my bf's fault, and hearing it makes me want to stab him after stabbing my eardrums.

Surfin' Bird! Ha! We were just listening to that last week, and V.'s been doing the Oom-oom-oom-oom-ooma-mow-mow. What a coincidincki.

we built this city. starship is satan's bastard child that never should have lived. ever ever ever ever ever ever. i will not dignify it with a link.

I find it helps to mentally make it "We built this city on Chocolate Swiss Roll."

Sweet Home Alabama and that other song from the last year or so that that's about Sweet Home Alabama. I actually liked Skynyrd in the seventies but thirty years of classic rock stations playing them every two hours have caused me to dive for the radio to "turn it off" everytime I hear them.

If I had a button that could make every Steve Miller Band recording in the universe not only not exist but never have existed in the first place I would mash that button harder than the three-year-old airline biscuit I recently discovered hidden in a rarely used compartment of my travel bag, which is a fine bag whose high repute nonetheless is not especially founded upon its preservative powers or other food storage virtues.

Rammstein/Pooh is great too, btw; the sync is really well done.

I hate almost all of these songs too.

Surfin' Bird is all kinds of awesome for me, but it's been misused. It was the distillation of all surf music and when it came out, it was the perfect antidote to the Beach Boys.

I hate every song mentioned above, and will raise you one unholy awful 80's duet: Separate Lives. Phil Collins at the peak of his schlocky descent into irrelevance, coupled with the fact that Marilyn Martin's voice is just like nails on a chalkboard.

Damn you to hell, lfr! I just now realized that I know every GD word to that song, which means it can play on a continuous loop in my head without skipping a beat.

You have no ask me how I FEEEELLL!!!!!

What if God was One of Us - joan osborne. good luck getting rid of THAT one.

"Three Times A Lady" by the Commodores. Pass me a bukit.

And "La Vida Loca". It contains one of the worst rhymes ever: "Her lips are devil red and her skin's the color mocha, She will wear you out livin la vida loca "

It's also coming up to that time of year ...

sorry jrossi4r, I'm cranky today and your comment merely tweaks my spleeny little schadenfreude knob to AWESOME *smile*

Let me add this... "Sour cream/ I want to top your taco/ sour creeeeeeeaaaaaaammmm"

The one currently driving me batty is the commercial with a remake of the Fixx's "Saved By Zero" (zero percent financing - get it?). They somehow made the original even worse. And the ad spend is huge, because I hear it several times every morning while watching the news.

Also, there's a horrific cover of Paul McCartney's "Put it There" that I hear on the muzak at my part time job. It's done by some squeaky voiced female with absolutely no soul.

Dirty deeds done dirt cheap. Actually, pretty much anything by AC/DC.

I think it's a guy/girl thing...pie really digs the AC/DC, but the lead singer (both of them) just sounds like a sick imp to me.

So, yeah, Venus and Mars?

Anything by *shudder* Gordon Lightfoot. One of my favourite memories of my grandfather (who was completely indifferent to music) is the time we went grocery shopping together and some godawful dreck came on the store's background music system. "Who's that singing?" he asked. "It's Gordon Lightfoot." "I really don't like that man's music." I think I hugged him.

Hey, I'm of the female persuasion and I love AC/DC. I will admit that around the time of the Razor's Edge release Angus Young started to sound a bit like Donald Duck to me, but still. For those about to rock, we salute you.
