What's the worst song of all time?
For Blender, it's 'We Built This City'

NEW YORK (AP) -- Starship may have built this city on rock and roll, but Blender magazine is tearing it down, naming the band's "We Built This City" as the worst song ever.

Some tunes on the "50 Worst Songs Ever!" list were selected for their melodies, others "are wretchedly performed" and "quite a few don't make sense whatsoever," the magazine said.

The list, which appears in the May issue, includes songs by New Kids on the Block, Meat Loaf, The Doors, Lionel Richie, Hammer and The Beach Boys, among others.

Blender describes 1985's "We Built This City" as "the truly horrible sound of a band taking the corporate dollar while sneering at those who take the corporate dollar."

Starship lead singer Grace Slick says, "This is not me," when the magazine reminds her of the tune. "Now you're an actor. It's the same as Meryl Streep playing Joan of Arc."

Rounding out the top 10: "Achy Breaky Heart," Billy Ray Cyrus; "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" Wang Chung; "Rollin'," Limp Bizkit; "Ice Ice Baby," Vanilla Ice; "The Heart of Rock & Roll," Huey Lewis and the News; "Don't Worry Be Happy," Bobby McFerrin; "Party All the Time," Eddie Murphy; "American Life," Madonna; and "Ebony and Ivory," Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder.

Other songs on the list: Toby Keith's "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue" (No. 22); Whitney Houston's "Greatest Love of All" (No. 30); Ricky Martin's "She Bangs" (No. 39); Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire" (No. 41); Simon & Garfunkel's "The Sounds of Silence" (No. 42); The Beatles' "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" (No. 48); and Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" (No. 50).

Blender and VH1's TV special "50 Most Awesomely Bad Songs ... Ever" airs May 12.

I think it was Biz Markee ? back in the late 80's early 90's that injured many ears with the song "You got what I need".

Not to disparage Blender Magazine's list or p51's suggestion because those songs truly are the picture of noise pollution but I've got to vote for Tax Man by the Beatles.

I cringe when "Catch Scratch Fever" comes on the radio. I used to like that Ted Neugent song, but now it drives me crazy.
I also do not like anything by Cher.

"I'm your Captain" Grand Funk Railroad

Reason:

How many *&(*&** times does the dude have to say "I'm getting closer to my home"? :)
Nothing trippy about it, it's flat out monotonous.

I would suggest that awful rendition of Take My Breath Away by Jessica Simpson.
I would also suggest anything she sings would fall in that catagory :)

I think Jessica Simpson has a pretty good voice, but her "Take My Breath Away" is terrible. But worst song ever .... maybe Love Shack by the B52's. I just hate that song.

There's nothing wrong with admitting that another female is pretty. ;)
