The Hall of Heaves
(a.k.a. The Worst Songs Ever Recorded)

"The recent history of mankind is the record of a vast conspiracy to impose one level of mechanical consciousness."
Allen Ginsberg

"He was dull in a new way, and that made many people think him great."
Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)

"He is not only dull himself, but the cause of dullness in others."
actor Samuel Foote (1720-1777)

(Were Johnson and Foote listening to Kurt Cobain and Nirvana from the grave?)

Updated: May 2018

Most recent additions:
  • Aqua: "Barbie Girl"
  • The Beach Bums: "Ballad of the Yellow Beret"
    (early Bob Seger, another indication that he was just a witless corporate tool)
  • Neil Sedaka: "Hey Little Devil"
  • 3 Doors Down: "Kryptonite"
  • Blake Shelton: "Kiss My Country Ass"
  • The Foo Fighters: "Best of You"

    (Special honors to Bob Seger for placing more songs here than any other performer.
    What a bag of hot air this dude is. Each of his albums should include a coupon for a free can of Red Man Tobacco.)

    Corollary lists:
  • The Greatest Songs Ever Recorded
  • Classic tracks of the Alternative / New Wave era

  • Warning: There's Something Here to Piss Off Everyone

    Stations spend so much time and effort deciding what to play, wasting their money on fat, middle-aged consultants whose idea of sophisticated musical expression is Van Halen. Too bad they don't invest as much effort into consciously deciding what not to play. Listed here is the kind of stuff that sabotages ratings by making the more intelligent listeners turn to other stations, as just one John Cougar, Collective Soul, or Third Eye Blind song can ruin a whole hour of otherwise stimulating programming.

    If there's a common thread running through these performers, it's that besides being boring, their commercial success is due more to gimmickry, heavy marketing, crafty P.R. and trendiness rather than inherent quality (isn't that right, Hootie?) giving us that "So what?" feeling when we hear them. Besides that, they generally pander to those of lower intelligence, and stations that play this stuff can't figure out why their remaining listeners are morons.

    Stations might do well to calculate how many listeners they lose when they play two, three, or four lightweights in a row. Is it 10%, 20%, or more? And how long does it take these listeners to come back? An hour, a day, a week, or even longer? There aren't many deejays left who remember how grateful their listeners can feel when you play four or five great songs in a row without corporate deadbeats like Soul Asylum, The Gin Blossoms or The Verve Pipe thrown in.

    For a variety of reasons, most stations have locked themselves into a format that's infested with lightweights. Their only option might be to make sure every other song they play is from the all-time-great list, since these songs would act as anchors to help prevent the more-intelligent listeners from drifting away. This is a zapper culture we live in, as we all know.

    There are thousands of lightweights of course, but here are the most irritating ones. The list helps demonstrate the iron-fisted control the music industry, which despises performers who think for themselves, has grabbed over radio playlists -- including many college radio stations -- in the last several years.

    Consider each song on this list a ratings saboteur . . . . . . .

  • Almost anything from Seattle, MTV, or VH1 (especially someone who receives one of VH1's "awards").

  • Almost anything on a radio station that says "We have the best mix!," "Play us in the office all day!" "More fun!" or calls themselves "Alternative" "Hot" "Cutting Edge" or "Power."

  • Almost any performer who has appeared on the David Letterman Show. Isn't that right, Hootie? 

  • Almost anyone who has appeared on Saturday Night Live in the past five years, since both this show and Letterman are pit stops on the cheezy PR circuit.
