Title: Classic Rock Songs that just fuckin' suck
Post by: Kamala For Kamala Harris on March 27, 2014, 10:57:32 AM
Breaking up the monotony of mediocre music threads to talk about stuff that just fuckin sucks.

http://youtu.be/oA3-InoYsWQ
This song came on the classic rock station this afternoon and now I'm gonna have it stuck in my head for the rest of the day. This is like an even worse version of Georgia Satellites' "Keep Your Hands to Yourself". Fuck you, George Thorogood! Fuck you, classic rock DJ who decided to drag this out of the mothballs!

Not quite classic rock but Don MacLean's "American Pie" is my least favorite song of all time. Fuck you, Don MacLean.

"Rock N Roll All Nite" is only like third or fourth best song on the album that it's from which is a second tier "original lineup era" KISS album! Not a terrible answer!

Speaking of Steve Miller Band, Ace Frehley announced that he's releasing another solo album today and the first single will be a cover of "The Joker". I'm a huge fan of Ace but I can't think of many things I'd rather hear less than him covering "The Joker". At least, this means Ace will probably tour again!

Besides Adam Sandler and POD did the definitive cover of "The Joker" on some MTV special hyping Little Nicky back in the day. How that clip's not on YouTube, I do NOT know!

I agree Kamala, American Pie is awful.

I'll get flack for this, but D'yer Maker is absolutely horrendous. The guitar is annoying and the over use of "oh's" and "ay's" feels like this song is side one of the album. It's boring and repetitive and ruins what could have been Zeppelins best album.

And throw me in the group that hates American Pie. I never thought of it as classic rock, though I guess technically it qualifies.

Who on the board loves that song but is too afraid to come in and defend it against the ELITISTS~! of the music folder?
Title: Re: Classic Rock Songs that just fuckin' suck
Post by: Kamala For Kamala Harris on March 28, 2014, 03:06:34 AM
15-20 years ago. Maybe even 10, "American Pie" would always be in the Top 5 whenever an oldies/classics station would have a Labor Day Weekend "500 Greatest Songs of All Time" countdown. I'm just glad it's not widely accepted as one of the greatest songs of all time anymore.

Thing is I don't mind Don MacLean's other hits. Probably because I hear them one-ten thousandth as much as I hear "American Pie" but I think "Vincent" is a p.good song.. A fun fact about "Vincent" is that it was one of Tupac's favorite songs.

Don MacLean lives in Maine and I was way too happy that he got arrested for a DUI like five years ago.

"American Pie" is played regularly on classic-rock stations, so it qualifies for this thread.

Post by: Kamala For Kamala Harris on March 28, 2014, 04:50:03 AM
Agreed on "American Woman" and the Kravitz version is worse and ungodly bad. "No Sugar Tonight" also fuckin' sucks. "These Eyes" gets a pass because of Superbad.

It's weird I don't like most of The Guess Who's hits but can tolerate most of Bachman-Turner Overdrive's big hits ("Let It Ride" kind of fuckin' sucks though).

Title: Re: Classic Rock Songs that just fuckin' suck
Post by: Kamala For Kamala Harris on March 28, 2014, 05:34:00 AM
Manfred Mann's Earth Band's version of "Blinded by The Light" (one that's always played) sucks and ruins Bruce Springsteen's less popular original (which isn't that great to begin with) by misunderstanding the word deuce as "douche".

I like "Takin' Care of Business" for some reason. It's nostalgia related as I remember a middle school friend playing it on acoustic guitar over and over again when we were in the middle of a wildly unsuccessful carwash fund raiser for our drama club on some Saturday in a Wal Mart parking lot.

I kind of felt that 'most' was a massive overstatement as soon as I hit Post but for clarification: we don't have quite the same regional radio culture that you Yanks do and the only classic rock station I was ever familiar with mostly played stuff that sounds like Van Halen or AC/DC

I can get down with Wings and Steely Dan and so on.

I like Takin' Care of Business. I think because I realized how awesomely they've trolled America with that song. I've often heard that song in a traffic jam that ballooned my commute home to an hour, and then had these guys laughing at all the 9-to-5ers by relating that their lifestyle affords them to "work hard at nothin' all day." That's expert-level trolling that's been happening on the FM dial with captive audiences for decades!

Don MacLean lives in Maine and I was way too happy that he got arrested for a DUI like five years ago.

In MacLean's defense, I think he hates the song now, too. Someone told me of a show he did at a college campus where he opened by saying, "I'm going to play American Pie first, so those of you that came just to hear that song can leave when it's done." It took the audience aback, apparently.

I've heard he also acts like an miserable asshole when he plays it too--stopping the song in the middle to tune his guitar and stuff like that.   

If the author can't stand it, it really must be the worst song of all time.

Who the eff  would compare those two songs??? Both awful, sure but incredibly different senses. Like saying stepping through a rusty nail is worse than eating at Cici's.

"Pour Some Sugar On Me" is bad but "Pour Some Sugar On Me" ripoffs are even worse.
http://youtu.be/590dLC1oQmE

I also begrudgingly don't hate "Pour Some Sugar On Me" because it was the one non Top 40/hip hop song played at my high school dances. Weird thing is I went to high school from '03 to '07. I'm guessing the guy they hired to DJ these was just a Def Leppard fan and tried to sneak in one of his faves or something.

"Piano Man" is in the category as "Sweet Caroline" and "Brown Eyed Girl" of blatantly inoffensive, average to slightly above average songs that have been overplayed to death.

Not Worst Song Ever bad but why the hell is it one of the most played songs of all time?

Laz being a fan of "Piano Man" might be the biggest surprise of 2014 at TRTSM.

Also I had an old co-worker who insisted Billy Joel played at the Old Port Tavern here in Portland and that the song was about the bar. I didn't want to correct him even though I've heard interviews with Billy Joel where he said it was about a piano lounge he played in L.A. after his first album flopped. Respect your elders and whatnot.

I'm sure every male between the ages of 50 and 65 that lives in North America claims that "Piano Man" written about an old bar in their hometown.

Eight minutes long.

Aaron Hill used this song to come to the plate when he played in Toronto. He looks exactly like my buddy Nick. That's not enough to save the song. It's okay, I guess, but it doesn't need to be fucking eight minutes.

Fake edit: Joe Walsh played this song on an episode of The Drew Carey show while Drew was in a coma - the exact fucking episode the show jumped the shark. Fuck a whole bunch of Life's Been Good.

Bingo, by the way, was called with "Rock n Roll All Nite".

Fuck Foghat's Slow Ride with a cactus dildo, while we're at it.

Real edit: The city of Boston is home to my most-hated hockey team, my second-most hated baseball team, a top-five for my most-hated football team, and the most annoying dialect in the history of spoken language. Therefore, "More Than A Feeling" is way behind in the count through no direct fault of its own. Taking that out of the equation, THE SONG STILL FUCKING SUCKS!`

I don't care if it's one original member (who's up there with Gene Simmons and Mike Love for biggest assholes in rock music) and a bunch of ringers. Seems like it'd be fun!

I feel like Amish Paradise might be better than the source material but I haven't listened to it in a while. I don't think Gangsta's Paradise aged that well, though I don't dislike it.

You're nuts.

Even if you don't prefer any of his direct parodies, you have to admit his style parodies can be spot on. The lead singer of Devo said he wished he had come up with "Dare to Be Stupid" first.

And the Doors parody:

I think I like 'Yoda' better than 'Lola'

'I lost on Jeopardy' is better than 'Jeopardy'

there's a lot of Al parodies that are better than the original

Me and my friends had a spirited debate about worst Led Zeppelin song at trivia last night and I was reminded of this thread. One of them obviously said "D'yer Mak'er" (no, Red Baron's not on my bar trivia team) . Friend's girlfriend who likes Zepp most out of any of us said "Down By The Seaside". I think the clear consensus answer though is "Hot Dog".

Which isn't exactly a classic rock radio staple but coincidentally, I heard it on the radio this afternoon on the local classic rock station and it reinforced my decision. That song fuckin' sucks. Led Zeppelin should never try to intentionally be funny. It reminded me of one of those crappy Muppet Show musical numbers with the terrible hillbilly Muppets.

Oh. Don McLean headlined the Maine Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony a few weeks ago. The show was running late and he literally shoved Howie Day ('00s soft rock one hit wonder, perhaps most notable for mackin' on Britney Spears while they were in rehab) so he could start his set. There were roughly 40 people in the 7,000 seat arena for the show.

Pink Floyd's "Learning to Fly" was on the classic rock station a few minutes ago. Awful. Why can't we all just collectively agree to ignore post Roger Waters era Pink Floyd? Outside of the choir and pretentious lyrics, the song sounds like it could be an outtake from ZZ Top's Afterburner.

Not quite classic rock but Don MacLean's "American Pie" is my least favorite song of all time. Fuck you, Don MacLean.

I couldn't agree more.  Every time I hear that song I want to smash something with a hammer.

Listening to this right now. It's basically a new age album with some bluesy solos. It's about what I expected it would sound like.

EDIT: Spoke too soon. There's some rockin' moments on this.

Has "Come Sail Away" (or anything by Styx, really) been raked across the coals yet? I've heard that song incessantly over the past few weeks and each time I hate it a little bit more.

I always enjoy "Fooling Yourself" whenever I hear it.  I'm with you on most of their other stuff, particularly "Lady" and "Babe."  "Come Sail Away" is kind of a guilty pleasure, but I definitely wouldn't want to hear it more than a couple times a year.

Only mildly related comment since I don't know if any of songs mentioned in this post constitute as classic rock (although I think I've heard at least one of them played on a classic rock station). After getting diagnosed with conjunctivitis this afternoon, the first two songs I heard on the radio were "In Your Eyes" and "Private Eyes" :o

A friend of mine who DJs at another station says he's going to dedicate Corey Hart's "Sunglasses At Night" to me. 8)

Post by: Kamala For Kamala Harris on June 02, 2016, 12:30:50 PM
Definitely not. Only scenario where it comes remotely close to sucking is if it comes on the radio after you've been diagnosed with pinkeye. Even then it's hilariously ironic!

Not gonna say hate, but Spirit In The Sky went from a song I was fine with to a song I never want to hear again due to many movies it has appeared in over the last twenty years or so. I'm blaming Guardians Of The Galaxy.  In just 2016/17 alone it appeared in Suicide Squad, TMNT: Out Of The Shadows, Mr. Right, I Am Not A Serial Killer, The Founder, Life, and I Tonya.
