'What's Up?' and the very worst songs ever

Postby Bungo the Mungo » 16 Oct 2012, 22:26

The worst song ever. Seriously.

The only problem is, there's nothing much we can say about it. It's just a one-off. It isn't interestingly bad, even.

Or is it?

Aah, the non talents of Grange Hill Mob. I blame Nancy Reagan. The eighties were a real car crash.
1966 and all that

Didn't it later emerge that several members of the cast smoked something illegal just prior to recording the video?

It's not worse than Four Non Blondes:



Truly, the most painful song in the history of music.

"What's Up" is a nightmarish video, mainly because of the wardrobe and the hair/makeup. Those people should be shot. Musically, it's one of the better Guns 'N Roses songs.

"Just Say No" might take the "naffest song" crown, but I kind of enjoyed listening to it!

There's nothing terrible about it for the first minute, actually - it's just another example of generic 90s alt-rock. But it quite quickly becomes unbearable from then on.

Yes, once the "oh this is a surefire hit" chorus gets repeated over and over. With that big wide mouth!

Yeah, yeah.

And life isn't a dress rehearsal, and don't be a hater, and tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life.

I have to agree with John here. Finding bad stuff can be a lot of fun.

other worthy candidates:

Rock Me Amadeus
Cotton Eye Joe
Rasputin

there are more, but I have happily forgotten them

Anyway, Grange Hill Mob make Langley Schools Music Project sound like a heavenly choir in comparison.
