Yeah but that is beside the point. We just have to concede to a tie, since the song makes both Greatest One-Hit Wonders and Worst Song ever lists.

The Hooks From 90's Hell!

Agree - and you had to post a double shot of what I wanted to forget about the Fake-Alternative 90's when things went so wrong! Four Non Blondes had that whole Slick 70's Folkie Wanna Be Slumming Look down tight right down to having the Acoustic Guitars that said "We're for real" (as real as Starbucks!) while The Crash Test Dummies hit the mother lode when they were a Canadian band that was big on CIMX when the industry was actually paying attention to it for that Alternative trend (Give me one other reason why the Bare Naked Ladies made it other than that they had Acoustic Guitars and dumb hooks?). Both had annoying hooks that caught the Mainstream and they still are being played today.

All I could think now is going through CD bins trying to find something good while having to wade through oceans of their discs. Both bands were only good for one song each (yes, those songs!), but it was the time when you had to have a full album as the single was starting to be slowed down to nothing.

The only thing worse would have been posting Bush (A British band that made it in The US by sounding Grunge Lite) or Creed (believe it or not, there was a band in The 70's also called Creed...).

Then again, there is even worse. Remember when there were those infamous Dance Remixes that were geared to the clubs and danced by kids on E who knew no better?

It has EVERYTHING a Poodle Hair Metal Band should have in it's one hit wonder = a concert setting with audiences lighting their lighters, Drummers with short shorts looking like they're actually working while actually playing an effortless one-two, a cheesy Synth line that goes great while drinking Bud Ice and watching the game (yes, it's that lame of a lifestyle choice!), and the sound of the type of music of a Mullet wearing creep who had a ultra fast sports car driven on Coke that he would have crashed on the freeway after being chased by the cops (very next to the last scene in Boogie Nights, really!)

Kind of reminds me of Angel!

Hey hey hey. What's with the Alternative 90s bashing? lol Listening to mainstream Alternative music in the 90s got me into music in the first place and I'll always have a nostalgic soft spot for it. There should be more guitar playing in mainstream music today. It is disturbing absent.

I will forever love this song.

Let's just say that after an 80's of discovering a while lot of music that smashed up what I went through in The 70's plus discovering a lot of EBM, Darkwave, and other music that connected, the a lot of the Alternative of The 90's was a bit of a regression back to the very thing that was supposed to be stopped. Plus, where I live it was deep in the very early Morning and at times like that I have to unleash some verbal criticism somewhere.

I like Europe's "The Final Countdown" only because when giving my child a final rinse in the tub, I used to sing "The Final Rinse...do do dooo dooooo, do do do do doooo" to the same tune. Now "The Final Countdown" reminds me of fun bath times.

* * *

A song that I currently despise is...

"Let Her Go" - Passenger.


Passenger - Let Her Go (Official Video) - YouTube

Retch!! Ack!

I start going into spastic conniption fits whenever this song comes on the radio.

I dislike this song for several reasons. I feel irritated by its bland, easy-listening acoustic sound. I dislike the lyrics and their meaning, as well as the person described: someone who doesn't appreciate something or someone until the thing or person is in the past. If the guy lets someone go and only then knows he loved her....yuck!

But I DESPISE this song for one reason alone...

I CANNOT STAND THE SINGER'S VOICE AND ACCENT.

As soon as Michael Rosenberg sings his first "onleeeeee," I start to clench my teeth and shudder, wanting to shred every recording of his singing violently apart until it is obliterated from the face of the earth. I cannot stand how he pronounces his "eeeee's" so distinctly. He sounds like a five year old cretin (politically incorrect comment.)

I have read that he is British, and usually I think British accents are cool, but HOLY HYENAS I abhor his!! Since the song has a lot of "onleeees" in it, I turn the radio station as soon as I hear the first insipid guitar notes of the intro. I feel infuriated by just one of his "onleeees." And what is this weird pronunciation of "missing" as "meessing"?!?

I hate it even more that so many people like this song, since this causes it to be played so often on the radio. When I watch the video and see his adoring audience members blandly smiling as they ingest his babyfood-like music, I feel aghast. And it isn't just a few people liking this pap, but THRONGS of them do. Ugh!!

Finally, I hate his clothes.
