I was originally just gonna rattle one off, because i heard it this morning on Sirius and it reminded me just how bad it is, but hey, why not get a whole "bad songs that people like for some inexplicable reason" thread goin?

Here's the song that inspired it. It's just...horrible. She sounds like a horrible banshee, and the incessant "wheeenh whew woah wainh" synth loops are enough to make someone lose their mind. That, and the lyrics just blow. I'm speaking, of course, about:

Kate Bush: Running Up That Hill (Deal With God)

It just keeps going and going, she keeps shrieking, and the whole time, you're sitting there unable to understand why anyone would voluntarily listen to this song.


Anyway, so...contribute!

I was thinking of that new Buckcherry song "Sorry" the lyrics are like "well we need another song for the album, but we can't rhyme anymore. Lets watch Sesame Street and get ideas for words that rhyme..."

I cant believe that a band like this went from great songs like, "Lit up" "Don't Drink the Water" "Dirty Mind" "Porno Star" and "Time Bomb" To this sappy "I need a hug" type pop trash...


my $0.02

I think most of the 'music' these days falls into that category for me. I find that the majority of them are less of artists and more of capitalists.

Agreed. DKM's music is good for one thing, and one thing only: to play during drunken bar brawls between angry Irishmen.

Otherwise...STFU. You think you're clever for taking Irish-sounding music and adding some modern beats and synths to it, then singing like you're a bunch of drunkards in a bar singing shanties. In reality, you sound like hack douches.

I will throw another one out for rap/hip hop. I can't stand it. Every song sounds the same and has the same lyrics. Hell, half the time it has the "artist" plus every other hack out there. So all in all its the same people for everything, it just depends who gets their name first and who's name goes after "featuring" Plus all the videos perpetuate the idea that to be successful you need a big car, giant rims, and gold teeth, and the best way to get there is droping school, selling drugs, and being a generally useless load on society. What really bugs me is this trend is carrying over into rock/alternative as well...
