So I’m leaving work last week, listening to WRVU, minding my own business. It was then that it happened, a moment I’ll never forget: the moment they played the song I could immediately identify as the worst thing I've ever heard. Just listen to this garbage:
My brain sluiced out many questions at once: When does the music start? Why won’t someone take that child away from the microphone? Is there a human DJ on right now who thinks it’s OK to share this distasteful dreck at drive time? Why me? This song, this utter waste of the miracle of human evolution, is a fairly concise cross-section of bullshit I can’t stand: it's overlong talk-singing by a ”babydoll” vocalist with what sounds like literal cooing as lyrics.
Anyway, that’s just my example. Maybe you like this song (are you OK?). What's the absolute worst thing you've ever heard in your whole entire life? Is it something similar to this, useless indie-pop few people outside of the Scottish Student Virgins Club will ever hear, or is it something more mainstream and (unfortunately) inescapable? Share your tales of pain.
