    Default worst rock song ever

    the flip side of the best rock song ever.. is the really bad kind.

    what do you consider to be the worst rock song from the rock and roll era. circo 1950's to say 2000's. ??

    not a group that you hate.. but a song that you despise so much it makes you wanna poke your ear drums out with a sharp pencil

    Yeah, but I have to disagree with you on "Sister Christian". Love this song! Every time I hear it, I think of Boogie Nights!

    Whatever that damned song is where they go "whoo-whoo" every two or three seconds FOR THE ENTIRE SONG!!!

    Arrgh! I run for the volume knob every time I hear it, leaving behind those curly cues you see in the cartoons.
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Fair enough. I have something of a knee-jerk reaction against the infamous 80s power ballad. Its like nails on a chalkboard to me...

    Yep that has to be it..

    My votes would be:

    The Who: Who Are You
    Kiss: Rock n Roll all night
    Both of these songs suck, if you did a shot of alcohol everytime they said the same lyrics you would be on the floor by the end of the song..

    I wanna rock n roll all night and party everyday,
    who are you who who, who who
    I wanna rock n roll all night and party everyday,
    who are you who who, who who
    I wanna rock n roll all night and party everyday,
    who are you who who, who who
    I wanna rock n roll all night and party everyday,
    who are you who who, who who
    I wanna rock n roll all night and party everyday,
    who are you who who, who who
    I wanna rock n roll all night and party everyday,
    who are you who who, who who
    I wanna rock n roll all night and party everyday,
    who are you who who, who who
    I wanna rock n roll all night and party everyday,
    who are you who who, who who
    I wanna rock n roll all night and party everyday,
    who are you who who, who who
    I wanna rock n roll all night and party everyday,
    who are you who who, who who
    I wanna rock n roll all night and party everyday,
    who are you who who, who who
    I wanna rock n roll all night and party everyday,
    who are you who who, who who

    and last but not least
    Queen: I want to ride my Bicycle. oh my god is this song crap..

    I actually made a joke to her about that. . . She immediately responded how she had to put up with my "audio crap" all the time, so the least I could do is enjoy it with her. Good thing I had a full bottle of Maker's Mark.

    I think it's the Who that sings it. I cringe just thinking about it.

    Anything from any 'hair metal' band of the 80s

    Really???:(

    XYZ: the first album is fantastic!!!
    Steel Heart: my favorite vocalist..
    Great White: another great rock n roll band.
    Ratt "the first album anyway"
    Motley Crue "the first 2 album's"
    Tesla great Rock N Roll band
    Heavy Bones "only one album but it kicks ass and is hard to find"
    Cinderella: Long Cold Winter another great rock n roll soul band.
    I will even go as far and say Twisted Sisters first 2 albums rock it hard.
    and I am not talking that stay hungry crap I am talking Under the Blade and You cant stop Rock N Roll.

    There are some great Hair Metal bands from the 80's, the rise and fall started with Quite Riot they brought it main stream, But they started the death of it as well.. and Twisted Sister's Stay Hungry LP brought the death even closer.
    and Poison, Enuff Z Nuff. it became a ****ing circus... and some good bands had to follow in the glam to get recognized like Tesla and Cinderella..

    Thank God we had Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth,OverKill, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Kreator, Merciful Fate,Saxon, Queensryche. ECT.... and even some of these bands slipped up here and there..

    Anything and everything from Depeche Mode.

    They have too many albums of pure crap, just to pick a single one out.

    I find it ironic that I like every song that's been mentioned. The only rock I don't like is the stuff with the "singer" screaming or growling. Typically the music is good, but the vocal track is intolerable.

    Besides Free Bird, any rock song used in a TV commercial to sell insurance, cars, soap, financial services, wireless phone service, computers/microprocessors, fast-food, video games, clothes, and erectile dis-function medication is the worst rock song ever...
