This thread is quickly gonna turn into people namedropping incredibly popular bands. Always does.



Hey look, it already happened. I do hate U2 though. Anyway, to keep it video game related, here's the abortion of a soundtrack from Yoshi's New Island.

Sounds like the composer was playing with a squeeky toy and then decided to add beats to it then call it a day.

The two worst songs ever:

Of all the garbage out there, you pick Achy Breaky Heart?

It's in tune, has a story, proper structure, grammaticaly reasonable, you can understand it, it's easy to dance to...

I understand the claim that it was overplayed and you can't stand to hear it any more, but it just can't be one of the objectively worst songs ever.

Jazz is, outside the standards, by it's nature, improvisational.

Not every improv solo is as good as the next one, but surely that's not how you would measure what's bad in music?
I think it's bad, I hate jazz, the improvisation is why I despise it.

Never expected everyone to agree, but I'm sure a lot of people do

I get it, and I wish you future joy in hating it, but I just think there's so many songs that're worse that I can't call plenty of songs I hate the worst songs ever.
That's cool, and I get were you're coming from, but I'd take a 2 year banging a saucepan over that song.

I notice you didn't put up a fight for the NKOTB song though. :messenger_grinning:

I'm a sax player, so I'm probably biased.

Dizzy, Charlie Parker, Maynard Fergueson, Ernie Watts, there's just countless excellent improvisers out there.

I do understand the acid jazz thing.

I'd personally put Bjork out there as stuff I'd think is objectively bad.

The title says "worst music in the world." It doesn't say "worst music in the world but don't choose popular bands and keep it video game related."

being in tune, has a story, structure, etc. has nothing to do with quality. this is like saying, "Your car has a frame, it has 4 doors, it drives, you can sit in it" while talking about a Pinto or something

i was 10 living in GA in 1991 and remember this shit song so well. it wasn't just the song, it was this whole line dancing craze as well. fuck this song and this white trash piece of crap and his spawn of satan.

I love threads like this lol. Your shit sucks, nah, your shit sucks.

I usually immediately change the radio if Aerosmith is on. Not saying they're the worst music in the world, it's just a band I am so sick of hearing and don't understand why they are considered on the level of other classic rock giants.

I'm not sure if Death Grips GAF is still around, but I'm still sticking with them as the worst music ever created.

I don't even have a specific example, just take this one for instance:

As corny as that is, it's actually pretty awesome to see a kid (with the help of his family?) making a song and putting it online. Modern times, y'all.

That second song is legitimately funny, and his lyrics and syncopation are better than Lil Pump.
I hear ya but that pokemon one is pure torture to me.

The second one is just hilariously inappropriate (I'm sure they know it), so had to include it.
