What do you think is the absolutely worst song that has ever been recorded? I'm talking about something truly abominable, where not only every copy, but the master tape as well should be burned-and the singer have his/her voice box taken out as well.

Here are my suggestions:

"Kung Fu Fighting" Karl Douglas
"Achy, Breaky Heart" Billy Ray Cyrus
"Let's Make The Water Turn Black" Frank Zappa
"Don't Go Breaking My Heart" Elton John/Kiki Dee
"Rhinestone Cowboy" Glen Campbell
"A Horse With No Name" America
"Mmm-Bop" Hanson
"Honkey Cat" Elton John

"I've Never Been to Me" by Charlene.

Trite, self-congratulatory lyrics sung by a one-hit wonder.

International: Without You by Mariah Carey

UK specific: 7 Tears by the Goom Bay Dance Band (I think). I hope to goodness that wasn't inflicted on ears around the world

Actually, most cover versions are terrible adding nothing to the "best" version; there's a glut of cover versions in the UK charts and can honestly say that they are all a waste of time and money!

The damn American Idol song by Kelly Clarkson. She's hot but the song sucks. Every time I turn on the radio it's on. If I knew how to put in that face that pukes, I would put it in here now.

-"Who Let The Dogs Out"- definitely the worst...
-Britney Spears' "Lucky" is awful.
-Mmm-bop (or anything else by Hanson)
-Don't know who sings it, but it part of it is:
"One way, or another, I'm gonna find you, I'm gonna get 'cha, get 'cha, get 'cha", etc. It was in "Coyote Ugly" & is in a commercial now.

I'll have more, I'm sure...

Btw, I don't think that NKOTB songs were *that* bad. But then again, I must have been eight or nine years old when they broke up, and they don't play their songs in the radio any more, so maybe I just don't really know their songs.

Also, Matt D, "A Horse With No Name" is a good song  Smile

And how can "A Horse With No Name" suck?

There are so many terrible songs out there. Impossible to name just one 100 of them, much less 1.

Well let's take some of the lyrics:

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
Cuz it felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert...you can't remember your name
laaa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-laaaa


Granted, it's not as bad as "Desolation Row" by Bob Dylan, but still...

Speaking of meaningless song lyrics, how about the following:

"Can't Get You Out Of My Head" (Kylie Minologue sp?)

"La-la-la la-la-la-la-la-la la la la-la-la la-la
Can't get you out of my head
La-la-la la-la-la-la-la-la la la la-la-la la-la"


I mean is that a song that she wrote while changing out her tampon or something? How long did it take to come up with those incredibly talented, clever, and original lyrics? Perhaps as long as 20 seconds?

And the scary thing is that it was A HIT!!!!!

Another classic is "Got My Mind Set On You" By George Harrison.

I guess those drugs he took while he was a Beatle finally caught up to him:

"I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
But it's gonna take money
A whole lot of spending money
To do it right
To do it to do it to do it to do it"

All the songs mentioned so far do come close to being as bad as this song:

Butterfly by Crazytown
