What immediately popped into my head was "What's that ridiculous song with the cake in the rain? The only good to come of that was the Weird Al cover."

MacArthur Park. Which actually came out in the late 60's. But in my defense, there were covers all the way through the 70's as well (including disco). According to the Wiki page, WJW-TV City Camera News used it as its theme song from 1970-77.

So I'm sticking with my answer. In fact, I think it set the stage for everything musically gross about that decade.
