Worst song I have ever heard

Work It - Missy Elliott

This has to be the most irritating song I've ever heard.

If that's the worst/most irritating song you've ever heard, you should listen to the radio/watch MTV more.

I like that song, the beat is awesome..

and about the Donut comment, she lost like 75 pounds so, that really doesn't apply anymore.

That was Time's worst song of the year. They mentioned that it will be a fixture at weddings and bar mitzvahs for years, as will its singer.

Yeah, it's pretty terrible. But at least it isn't Justin Timberlake.

None of those have stood the test of time yet. For me, the worst song I've ever heard is still, after many, many years, Torn Between Two Lovers.

Overplayed? I can't get enough of it. I think it's quirky and inventive and I also like Las Ketchup and It's getting Hot in Herre, so Take off all your clothes.

I realize the last two aren't very "deep" so to speak, but they're fun.

I do think Work It is well written and performed. The video is fun too.

I agree that Work It is pretty poor but until you've suffered Touch my bum by the cheeky girls I don't think you can complain.

What's wrong with that song. Ok, a bit mellow for Kid Rock, but the lyrics are decent.

I agree, I loved Picture by Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow. I like the country feel of his album.

I can't imagine a 51 year old saying "dude".



Not doubting you though.

TOO OLD? I listen to Kid Rock, Eminem - my favorite song right now is Loose Yourself.

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo

Dude, that rocks!

And PINK is way hot.

Too OLD???

Worst song ever? Not even close to that... Is it really worse than the Macarena? What about Madonna's cover of "American Pie"?

(Side story - I either saw or read an interview with Weird Al where he said something about his version of "American Pie" was the second funniest ever recorded, behind Madonna).

Worst single released by Missy Elliot (as a solo artist)? I could see that...
