    'Baker Street' by Gerry Rafferty is the worst song ever. I don't think it's even really debateable. You can hate on bubblegum boy-band pop, butarts it doesn't hold a candle to this.

    It starts off with this kind of island beat, and then it just busts into the worst kind of cheesy porn sax solo, with this weird synthesized 'bewwwwww' sound in the background.

    I fucking hate it.

    And I'm sure you don't recognize the name, but if you were born pre-90, have ever been stuck in an elevator of a doctor's office, or watched the T.V. guide channel, then you've heard this song.

    Damn, it sucks.

    I guess this was gonna be a thread where we discuss people's opinion of the worst song ever. But it's pointless now, because nothing can ever suck more than 'Baker Street'.

    That is all.

    Damn, it's even on youtube.

    I don't like the original version, but I do dig the Foo Fighters' cover of it.

    I can not stand Marcy Playground's "Sex and Candy'.
    It is one of the few songs that actually makes me angry when I hear it.

    The lyrics, the instruments, and particularly the singer's voice reek of lame.

    Ugh! Not that song again! I hate that song. The second the guy started singing I closed the link.

    Though the worst song ever is anything by Backstreet boys, Spongebob Squarepants or...

    The Hamster dance. ARRRRGH!

    I don't think it's that bad, it reminds me of the late 70's and early 80's, which was a good time - but I can understand how that song could be very irritating and maddening to someone. I have songs that do that to me too for no good reason, but I'll be damned if I can think of one. I don't make it a point to remember them, I guess.

    The Barbie Song is the worst song ever.

    While the Barbie song is very much hated, I could stand listening to that for a year straight rather than listen to ANYTHING hip hop or rap related.

    Beautiful Girl by Sean Kingston

    It's tied with any song produced and performed by Fergie.

    Anything by Sean Kingston. I listen to it when it's on the radio simply because it serves to feed my dark soul with hate.

    Nothing that kid does is talented. I say that about a lot of Hollywood nowadays, but this kid can't come up with his own beat. Literally everything he does is sampled and crapped on.

    It's probably not the worst song ever but Shattered by the Rolling Stones is pretty much excrement.

    I don't know what it's called, or who sings it, but at work there's this song were this guy repeats "Lovely Day" over and over and over for about 5 minutes, while someone else says the same line really, really, really long.

    Most annoying song ever written.

    While I am on the hate train, anything by Coldplay is pretty much crap.

    Baker Street is pretty fucking awful too. I'm just glad I always heard it in a mall or an office or something where they did the muzak version without singing. I basically thought it was the saxophone, then a couple minutes of musical noodles, then the saxophone again. And then they moved on to massacre some Van Halen.

    I'd have to say that new Britney Spears song is absolutely the worst song ever.
    "GIMMEH GIMMEH GIMMEH GIMMEH..."

    Are you freaking kidding me?
    Happily, at least people are rejecting the pile of trash, as they should have done with all of her horrible music.
