    However, one of my all time most hated songs is Hey Jude. Not only is it bad, but it goes on, and on, and on.........

    I do not care for Christmas music... mostly because it seems tradition has taken a back seat to greed and I detest greed. I am not bothered by Taylor Swift and Rascal Flatter or Toby Kieth and Kenny is one of my faces. I HATE THE BLACK EYED PEAS and anything they sing. There is one rap singing chic I CAN NOT STAND! She pretends to be the shy "stupid" type but you can tell she is a mean beotch... and she CAN'T EVEN SING.

    I have it on eye-witness authority that Stevie Nicks often did a great deal of coke while recording. No wonder her voice has awesome vibrato.

    The eye-witness was one of the sound guys who thought the coke was fair game for all-- like the chips n dip at a party.

    Not so. Really not so. The Nicks crew (not all of Fleetwood Mac by then) got pissed and said if the guy didn't replace it (and pronto and with stuff of equal quality) there would be huge problems. The guy didn't feel he had the right sort of connections for making this right, so it was a scary and memorable event for him.

    I like Rascal Flatts, but may I admire the italicized phrase? Malcolm Turner would be proud, if more vulgar. You are learning.

    Maria Muldaur. My mom had the album. I'm glad my suffering so long ago has now served a useful purpose. Total crap song.

    Uhhh... I like Nickelback. I do not get it. And I love Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and the Grateful Dead... and Journey. Ermagerd.

    Funny you mention that! My boyfriend said "You should post again and say "Every Nickleback song". I can't stand them. How about that song where the singer is singing (in the words of the girl he's fooling around with) "That's my dad outside the car!".....Wow, you're what, like 40 years old?! Just how young is she?

    I'll add Kid Rock to the list too. No specific song, pretty much all of them.

    I'm Not Lisa by Jessi Colter.

    My dear mother was going through a divorce and I had to hear that song for two years strait, everyday. The stable was exactly six minutes away which meant I had to hear that damn song twice there and twice back. Every.single.day. To make it worse my name is Julie. Which is the second line in the song.

    I only know one Nickelback song and I really like it. And I would argue that it does not in any way stand out from a crowd of songs I would say are of a similar genre (by Staind, Live, etc.) So I don't get all of the hate and venom, though I'll admit it has made me less inclined to find more Nickelback.

    Today I heard Bette Davis Eyes. And had to add it to my list.

    A recent hated song is that one (again, one that people seem to love) by Of Monsters and Men -- Little Talks. The chorus is just words that don't go together. And I hate the back and forth. And it is SO overplayed!!!

    Oh, and I ADORE Neil Young.

    Did you know that if you say the word "GULLIBLE" really softly, it sounds like "ORANGES"?

    The other song that people have no idea what's it's about (despite strikingly obvious lyrics such as "So, goodbye...") is I Will Always Love You. I have no problems with the song, but when people play it at weddings I am like, WTF THIS IS A SONG ABOUT BREAKING UP.

    Yep. Then again, I went to a wedding where the bride danced with her father to Cutting Crew's "I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight," which was also a wtf moment.

    Nickelback did get mentioned a while ago, but I think Any Nickelback Song is just a given.

    My husband haaaaaaates Fleetwood Mac, but I kinda love me some Stevie...

    I always found it a little apropo that the last slow dance song at our junior high dances was Stairway to Heaven.

    Anything by Toby Keith, tho "Live Like You Were Dying" used to make me run screaming across the barn to turn the radio off till the song was over.

    The only redeeming quality of Sweet Caroline & Don't Stop Believing are the nightly drunken sing-a-longs at the wedding venue across the street. I can tell how much they'be been drinking by how early they play those 2 songs.

    Sweet Chocolate Christ, I HATE THAT CUTTING CREW SONG!!!!!

    It is definitely in my Top 5 Most Hated. Some of the dumbest lyrics ever penned, and the lead singer sounds like a rusty bandsaw on concrete.

    It's also a terrible earworm.
