The recent thread about albums you can listen straight through got me thinking about this.
You know what I'm talking about, the one song by a group you love that you skip over on the album because it kills the mood, or simply sucks. A song that you can't believe that the group you like put on an album. The song you just hate.
Some of my examples...
Queen - "Don't Try Suicide"
The Police - "Friends", "Be My Girl - Sally"
Pink Floyd - "Vera Lynn", "Seamus", "Money" (that song just grates on me)
Berlin - "Rumor of Love"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Finger Painting"
Smashing Pumpkins - "Window Paine", "Silverf*ck"
U2 - Everything on Zooropa
Yaz - "I Before E except After C"
You get the idea.
So let me feel your pain. Which songs can't you stand, even though you love the artist?

Paul Weller: "Heliocentric" Never thought he'd make an album worse than "Heavy Soul", but did so with this one. He's definitely made up for with "Illumination", to me his best work since "Stanley Road".
The Jam: "The Modern World" It just sounds rushed, as it came out six months after "In the City". It lacked the powerful punch of the first album, and is really the only misstep in the Jam catalog, in fact was their worse charting album.
Blur: Everything since "Blur". Turning into a generic sounding college music band was stupid. As a result, they've become more popular in the US. Excuse me while I get misty-eyed thinking about the glory day of Britpop.
