I don't enjoy rap or heavy metal what happened to the days when you could understand the words to the song? It seems that things have certainly changed or maybe I'm just getting old.

Take me to church by hozier.
I can't explain why, but I absolutely hate this song.
If we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

We've all got light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are.

Some of the songs from Glee where they try to imitate famous singers and bands like Frank Sinatra and Benny Goodman and really murder those songs. Barf.

Man, I've got a long list of disliked songs; almost as long as the list of songs I love. But the one that REALLY gets on my last nerve is Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke.... Not only an awful song, but Robin is an awful person!

Most rap/hip-hop songs nowadays. The artists just mumble, groan, then spit incoherent sentences for 3 minutes.

Completely agree with you there. I can't stand that song.

"Hey Jude" from the Beatles. Don't get me wrong, actually the music/instrument is very good, but the lyrics told about man on drugs had a hallucination. Just like "Bohemian Rhapsody" - Queen, good music, good arrangement, but bad lyric: about man under the effect of the morphine.

Okay, so we have a thread about your favorite song(s), but everyone has songs that really ANNOY them. Now's your chance to vent!

My first entry:

"Happy" by Pharrel Williams. Overplayed, overhyped, and just ANNOYING!
Yes! Happy is so annoying ha ha! At the moment I am really not liking Man's Not Hot because the made up words/weird noises get on my nerves :?

Yep! Also not a fan of Hey Jude I never got why people like it so much when it is pretty boring. All I can picture is a hot air balloon that just keeps deflating and never quite lifts off.

While we're at it, Written on The Wall by Sam Smith is also one I never got to grips with. In all honesty, the music goes really well with the James Bond opening sequence it was written for but the song itself never inspired me.

Rant over - promise :D

Despacito. Can't stand it. So overplayed that I could scream through whole song just to not hear it ever again.

Agreed, Despacito is desperately annoying, mostly from being played a zillion times a day.

My pet peeve song right now is that Sean Mendez song where he whines about how his female friend is dating someone else instead of him. And anything by Maroon 5 will make me change the station. I'd literally rather listen to static than his nasally wailing.
