So what was the worst song of 2008?

As we look back with nostalgia, and I know we had the other thread, but what did you think honestly was the worst song of last year?

For me, it's very, very simple.

Use Somebody by Kings of Leon. I could give a million reasons why but it stands on its own.

Use Somebody - Kings Of Leon was awful.....

.....but so was Paralysed by that Canadian band.....

....and that Stop and Stare song by One Republic that I heard a few hours ago.

One of those 3 maybe, and Akka Dakka's Rock and Roll Train

pink, whatever it was called. the one with the line about starting a fight.

and the umbrella/ella song. that one makes me particularly homicidal.

mia-paper planes


three-way tie, regardless of whether any of them were actually released last year or the year before (or even very, very early this year). they all belong on a list of worst songs ever.

That was 2007, first of all.

"Paper Planes" was also 2007.

And they're both great, albeit overplayed. "Paper Planes" was amazing when the only people who heard it owned Kala, but once it became ubiquitous, it lost all of its charm.


But the worst has to be something from that Kings of Leon record. "Use Somebody" probably is the one.

I knew something had gone seriously wrong when I was visiting our warehouse at work, and a douchebag forklift driver had it as his ringtone.

While it probably wasn't the worst song of the year, 'Shadow of the Day' by Linkin Park gets my "overplayed radio song of 2008" award.

It's not that he was a forklift driver that upset me, it's that he's a COMPLETE CHODE.

How do you identify a 'chode'? Is it by the smell? If so, I think the guy in the office next to me is a 'chode'.

Like I said, Mrs. Goodall, I'm not sure how to identify a COMPLETE CHODE.
