Popular band ... awful song

    I know some, maybe most, people will love that this thread topic will commence with Rush (my all-time favorite band), but this topic came to mind after listening to two of their worst songs ever on Sunday ...

    "Dog Years" and "Virtuality" off the Test for Echo album. The sad part is that "Virtuality" would have made for a decent instrumental (and I would have changed the title if so), but the lyrics absolutely blow. Same goes for "Dog Years" but it's just flat out bad.

    If you're judging lyrics, you can throw out half the shit ever written. Anthony Kiedis, for one, has been writing absolute nonsense for 20 years.

    I'm talking about bad songs as a whole, I merely gave reasons for why those two Rush songs are awful.

    I'm sure this could be a thread to mention every Kiss song ever recorded, Bruce Springsteen's "Hungry Heart", Cochrane's 'Life is a Highway" and so on.

    I agree with Hungry Heart but I love Life Is A Highway. I think I discovered Cochrane late though.

    Aerosmith and that song from Armageddon. Holy fuckin' shit is that song terrible.

    Aerosmith is a funny band. Their music sucks now, but I'd still be happy if they'd play it in concert.

    Great band, stood the test of time.

    When the Grateful Dead started in on Dancing in the Streets, I always went for beer. Utter crap.

    Van Halen version sucks ass, too.

    In fact, all versions of that song suck.

    Of course, when Aerosmith recorded that song, they'd been recording utter shit for nearly 10 years. So we shouldn't have been surprised.

    The song Girl by the Beatles just sucks. Keeps Rubber Soul from being as good as Revolver.

    If you really want to get into nonsense, listen to LFO (Summertime Girls) where they just start listing random shit. What makes it even worse is that it's a damn ad for Abercrombie & Fitch and things that are supposed to rhyme, don't.

    "Hip-hop, marmalade, spic and span,
    Met you one summer and it all began
    You're the best girl that I ever did see,
    The great Larry Bird Jersey 33"

    It's been 10 years, and I still can't figure out WTF these guys were on.
