    Songs that make you want to rip your ears out.
    GAWD I HATE C'MON EILEEN!

    There are not a lot of songs that I just can't stand to listen to, but this is one of them. I hate it, hate it, hate it.

    A few others songs that are akin to nails on a chalkboard for me are I'm An Adult Now, by The Pursuit of Happiness; Echo Beach by Martha and the Muffins; and Mambo Number 5, by Lou Bega.

    What songs make you want to drill knitting needles into your ears?

    You are openning a can of worm, but here it goes:

    Yes "I've Seen All Good People": A very disjointed and most boring song.

    Lynard skinner "Free Bird": This song goes on and on forever.

    Bruce Springsteen "Born In the USA": Good album, but crappy title song.

    Well Smokey after seeing your post I don't feel so bad about mine. I am really trying to bite my tongue but, dude, how could you not like Freebird? That's sacraledge! Your Redneck license is revoked until further notice. To get them back it takes a healthy dose of Jack Daniels and an ass whoopin from Charlie Daniels. That should do it. If not, then, the big guns, continue with the Jack and break out the Haggard.

    I can't stand Don McClain, American Pie, this song or Jackson Browne, Stay, induces instant vommitting.

    Men at Work - Who Can It Be Now
    Ahhhhh, that lame sax part!

    Paul McCartney - Wonderful Christmastime
    What an ironic title for a song that makes me gag every time December hits.

    Sophie B. Hawkins - As I Lay Me Down
    I swear they say "who wants nachos" in the chorus background.

    Any songs by Creed or Nickelback.

    Iíll second and third these.

    There is also a country song (don't remember the singer's name) something like, "Why don't you stay" or something like that. It got megga awards, but I can't stand it. I'd rather have ice picks shoved in my ears.

    Speaking of country, there is an older song I don't know the name of but as usual it was some poor sap whining about his loser life and all I remember is a line that went something like "if I die before I wake, please someone feed Jake"... I guess his dog. That one was real annoying song along with that Achy Breaky Heart drivel.

    What happens if you play country music in reverse?

    speaking of country music, there is just too much of it that's irk worthy, but there are some artists who have not one song that doesn't bug me:

    funny thing, I'm quite surprised that I've liked any of the acting she's done, but Reba Macintire(sp?) isn't a half bad actress, for the few things shes done. My wife liked her TV show; I've seen a lot worse. Loved her in Tremors. But I can't stand her singing and I especially hate to watch her sing. But I'll watch her TV show with the wife.

    I hate Toby Keith. What a total rube. Having grown up in TN I've seen some real rednecks, both in country music and real life. Toby Keith has been called retro, and he is, in all aspects of societal development. From his ignorant, juvenile, regionalized patriotism to his over useage of catch-phrase songs, this cousin dater represents all that is wrong with country music, if not its target audience.

    Are you sure that you aren't thinking of Snowbunny's post about songs you only know the chorus to? That's where the idea for this thread came from.
