Hmm, that's one of the ones I don't like, along with the aforementioned L.i.a.H., the title song, "Get Back Up", and "Emotional Truth". It's an album of highs and lows.

Surprised this song wasn't mentioned, since it was constantly used(abused, perhaps?) over & over in TV commercials & the movies:

"What I Like About You" by The Romantics.

Re: What is the most overplayed rock song?

I know a lot of ppl want to see this rock song from the 80s die:


The Final Countdown by Europe

Did it become so hated because of overplay or its major cheesefest quality?

Cheese factor, mainly.

It was used in The Parent Trap--hmm, I guess that explains what happened to Lindsay Lohan
