Worst song ever

According to CNN, Blender has compiled their list of the 50 worst songs of all time. The Blender site only lists numbers 50 through 40, but CNN lists the top ten (not in order):

  • "We Built This City" : Starship (they report this as being the #1 worst song ever)
  • "Achy Breaky Heart" Billy Ray Cyrus
  • "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" Wang Chung
  • "Rollin'" Limp Bizkit
  • "Ice Ice Baby" Vanilla Ice
  • "The Heart of Rock & Roll" Huey Lewis and the News
  • "Don't Worry Be Happy" Bobby McFerrin
  • "Party All the Time" Eddie Murphy
  • "American Life" Madonna
  • "Ebony and Ivory" Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder

I've discussed this topic at many parties over the years. I always submit "We Built This City" as worst song ever, and always get appreciative head nods on doing so. It's an utterly inane and soul-less song, polished to shine like cheap plastic. It's an insult to Marconi and to San Francisco.
