    So recently I've begun listening to a more pop-oriented radio station. It's more of a variety station, your typical "Best of the 80s, 90s, and today!" type of thing, but they play a lot of new stuff.

    I've been, in some cases, pleasantly surprised by the quality of some of this modern music. "fun." is a very likable band, and that song by Gotye is pretty good as well.

    BUT

    I am simultaneously shocked by how pants-****ingly terrible some of the music on the radio can be. There is simply no way some of these songs aren't written to be purposely terrible as a gimmick. That's where I got the idea for this thread.

    So let's get down to the nitty gritty, share some terrible lyrics you've heard. It can be new or old, doesn't matter.

    The worst I've heard is probably:

    Kelly Clarkson - Mr. Know It All
    "Mr. Know it all, well you think you know it all, but you don't know a thing at all baby, ain't it something y'all?"

    A close runner up:

    Pink - Blow Me One Last Kiss
    "Just when it can't get worse, I've had a **** day. You've had a **** day. We've had a **** day."

    Most lyrics currently appearing in Top 40 songs. I particularly advocate the usage of "Don't want to break your heart / Just wanna give your heart a break" as an effective 'enhanced interrogation" tool.

    Ha. What would you say if I told you that and "call me maybe" are guilty pleasures of mine?

    Seriously though, check out fun. Their singer reminds me of Freddie mercury when he sings with a little bit of an edge.

    Yeah that one's pretty bad. How about this one:

    "Want you to make me feel like I'm the only girl in the world, like I'm the only one that you'll ever love, like I'm the only one that knows your heart."

    I want to throw Rihanna off of a cliff.

    FUN is absurd. I swear I don't say this from my straight edge, holier than thou soapbox... that song is so amped up on changing the world, making an impact, setting their society on fire... and it all finally boiled down to "If you're too drunk and are falling down like an irresponsible lush, I'll carry you home. Tonight". [face_hypnotized]

    I prefer Some Nights. To be fair though, I see your point. It is a little self indulgent. I still like it though :p


    Also, all of Born This Way by Lady Gaga. I'm troubled by the whole premise, considering there are plenty of terrible not ok things people are born with. And plenty of things they choose that are ok. Sort of misses the point, I think.

    Can we name Jon BonJovi as the male patron saint of this thread? With "The More Things Change" he has clearly used up every cliché the English language has to offer.

    "That's the biggest black ass I've ever seen, and I like it. And I like it."

    Yes that's a real song. It's not hip hop or anything of the sort.

    I'm on board with Jon Bon Jovi being the thread's patron saint. He won that title long ago with "I'll be there for you, these 5 words I swear to you. When you breathe, I wanna be the air for you, I'll be there for you."

    I am offended by your implication, good sir.

    Also thank you.

    For me the most god-awful Rihanna remains "Unfaithful" -- 3+ minutes of her whining that she's screwing around on her boyfriend, as if we're supposed to feel bad for her. By the end of the song, who isn't left praying that the boyfriend will be the murderer.

    Wow. That's... Shocking even for her. Know who else is bad? Katy perry.

    And the next time I hear "I've got the moves like Jagger," I might resort to physical violence.

    With Perry it's not so much the lyrics as the fact that feels a need to scream the lyrics to every song "BABY YOU'RE A FIREWORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    It might be me, but I like any song that talks about Chris Brown blowing his head off.

    My wife listens to the dominant teeny bopper garbage station and I just don't get it. The lyrics are just terrible.
    I'm actually glad that I now have to drive my daughter to and from school because it removes that crap from her rotation.

    I'm sure she'll like it anyway but there's no need to accelerate the trend.
