Bottom 5 Songs from Your Favorite Band?

Occasionally, even our favorite bands will produce songs that fail to live up to our expectations. Pick your bottom five songs by your favorite artist. You can provide explanations, if you wish.

Belle and Sebastian

  1. Electronic Renaissance
  2. The Chalet Lines
  3. Take This Carriage Clock and Shove It
  4. Beyond the Sunrise
  5. I Know Where the Summer Goes (it’s not a bad song–the melody’s gorgeous–but it sounds too much like generic Belle and Seb, and I need a fifth song.)

Anyone else care to try?

Yeah, I’ll play.

My all-time favorite is Depeche Mode, so here goes.

  1. Flexible (ugh!)
  2. Work Hard
  3. My Joy
  4. Love In Itself
  5. Nodisco

ight of the Hunter
Shanghai Noon

Wait. Huh?

Bump, because this is a good topic, dammit! :slight_smile:


  1. It’s Just That Simple
  2. Shouldn’t Be Ashamed
  3. Should’ve Been In Love
  4. Why Would You Wanna Live
  5. Someone Else’s Song


1.) Purify
2.) Poor Twisted Me
3.) Cure
4.) Through The Never
5.) Thorn Within

Unfortunate blemishes on a near perfect archive of songs.

(not counting the Flash Gordon soundtrack)

“Drowse”- too aptly named
“My Fairy King”- ditto
“Pain is So Close to Pleasure”- however, on this song, pain is just pain
“Don’t Lose Your Head”- crap crap crap
“The One From Innuendo About Freddie’s Cat Pissing on the Furniture”- ENOUGH!!
I couldn’t pick a favorite band of all time, but these guys are certainly up there.

Bonzo Dog Band

Alas, the reunion album, “Let’s Make Up and Be Friendly” is a pale shadow of their genius.

  1. The Strain
  2. Turkeys
  3. Straight from my Heart
  4. Don’t Get Me Wrong
  5. Fresh Wound

The Who

  1. You Better You Bet
  2. Squeeze Box
  3. Imagine a Man
  4. Now I’m a Farmer
  5. Faith in Something Bigger

Led Zeppelin:

Hats Off To Harper
Dyer Maker
The Crunge
Black Country Woman
Royal Orleans


Come Together
The Universal
Yuko and Hiro
two songs reserved because I’ve been too skint to get the new album, and I’m sure without Graham Coxon a bunch of it will suck


  1. Limbo
  2. Thai Shan
  3. Scars
  4. Time and Motion
  5. Resist

[sub](No, Test for Echo is not my favourite Rush album.)[/sub]

Dead Kennedys:

Ill In The Head
Chicken Farm
Cesspools In Eden
The Prey
Funland at the Beach

Adult Books
White Girl
Clean Like Tomorrow
Wild Thing
Universal Corner


The Beatles. In no particular order:

“Mr. Moonlight”
“The Fool on the Hill”
“The Long and Winding Road”
“You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)”

I only actively hate the first three of these.

I like Time & Motion


depends on what you mean by “Song” :slight_smile:

Pink Floyd:

  1. Atom Heart Mother Suite
  2. Absolutely Curtains
  3. Sisyphus
  4. Saucerful of Secrets
  5. Alan’s Psychedelic Breakfast.

As you can see (or maybe you can’t), these arent really songs, but instrumentals.

With vocals…hmmm, that’s a bit hard.
1.Remember a Day (could have been better with different vocals.)
2-5. Pick any 4 tracks from Division Bell, except for Take it Back.

Tool… I could only think of three songs…

Part of Me (your dick, I get it)
Bottom (Henry Rollins… ick)
Pushit (actually it’s a good song, I just don’t happen to like it)


  1. Mamacita
  2. Funky Ride
  3. Babylon
  4. E.T.
  5. Toilet Tisha


  1. First Time (talkin’ a scared inexperienced girl into losing her virginity, reeeal sexy there.)
  2. Babe (if I have to hear that song one more time… )
  3. Krakatoa (they were on crack when they wrote this one if you ask me)
  4. High Crimes & Misdemeanors (Hip Hop-Cracy). Hip-hop-cracy? Whaaaat?
  5. Music Time (how embarrassing…)

No, I don’t like ballads. Why do you ask?

And yes, I did notice all of these were written by the same band member. No, it does not surprise me.
