Sure, there are songs that you love that aren’t other people’s cup of tea and vice versa, but it turns out that large numbers of people actually agree on something – and it’s the most universally annoying songs in rock and roll history.

Here’s a list combined from Rolling Stone and the New York Post, and my apologies in advance if you spend the rest of the day humming any of these.

#15. “Macarena” by Los Del Rio.

I’m embarrassed to admit I danced to this in college.

#14. “Don’t Worry Be Happy” by Bobby McFerrin.

Who told him this was a good idea?

#13. “Mambo No 5” by Lou Bega.

The definition of a good bad song.

#12. “The Thong Song” by Sisqo.


#11. “Rock the Boat” by Hues Corporation.

A little unexpected but valid.

#10. “We Built This City” by Starship.

They built some seriously addictive chorus, is what they did.

#9. “One Week” by Barenaked Ladies.

Okay so you’re saying I wasted all of those hours memorizing the lyrics?

#8. “Photograph” by Nickelback.

All you had to say was “by Nickelback” really.

#7. “You’re Beautiful” by James Blunt.

The only thing worse is the video.

#6. “Believe” by Cher.

Retirement should have come a bit earlier.

#5. “My Humps” by The Black Eyed Peas.

Worst ever.

#4. “Who Let The Dogs Out” by Baha Men.

I think we can all agree on this one.

#3. “Take My Breath Away” by Berlin.

No matter how many movies they put this in, I’m never going to like it.

#2. “Wannabe” by The Spice Girls.

The ballad of a generation. Ha!

#1. “Party All the Time” by Eddie Murphy.

Stick to acting, my friend.

Quick, go listen to some good music to cleanse your palate!
