The Worst Songs in the History of Radio
Admit it, no matter how open minded and accepting you try to be as a human being, there are always going to be a handful of songs that you absolutely hate. It’s okay, we’ve all been there. I can usually tolerate quite a bit musically.
Even if a song isn’t necessarily my cup of tea, more often than not I can find something about it to appreciate. Unfortunately that isn’t always the case.
Sometimes a bad song will make you cringe to the core and make you regret the day you were born. Well today dear reader, I would like to share with you what I think are the worst songs of all time. We’ll go in reverse order. Here we go.
- My Sharona - The Knack
I don’t care you who are – this song is BAD. I’ve never found The Knack’s quirky sense of humor to be anything short of infuriating. The vocals and lyrics in this song are pretty awful – “Never gonna stop, give it up. Such a dirty mind, always get it up for the touch of the younger kind. My my my I yi woo M-m-m-my Sharona!.” Good lord. Just repulsive. But the lyrics aren’t nearly as bad as that guitar riff. It haunts me in my dreams.
- Love Shack - The B52s
My mom loves this song, and I don’t understand why. I don’t care if it’s fun if it’s this bad. With such classic lines as “BRING YOUR JUKEBOX MONEY BABY!!!” and “I got me a car, it's as big as a whale and we're headin' on down to the Love Shack!!” this little treasure rightfully earns its place as the 2nd worst song of all time.
- Rock On – David Essex
This is as bad as it gets folks. You haven’t heard bad until you’ve heard this song. As with all of the other songs on this list, the lyrics are pretty bad, but NOTHING and I mean NOTHING on Earth even remotely compares to the sorry excuse for a melody that the horn section plays. I have never cringed so hard at anything in my entire life. I wouldn’t be surprised if scientists have already proven that this is objectively the worst song of all time.
That’s my list and I’m sticking to it.
