Most Boring/Overplayed songs on the radio!

Okay... these are the songs that when played on the radio, make me go "ugh... not again!" and I change the station.

1. Dream On - Aerosmith (they overplay this to death on NY's Q104.3)
2. The Boys Are Back In Town - Thin Lizzy
3. D'yer Mak'er - Led Zeppelin (okay, in this case I never liked this song)
4. Feel Like Makin' Love - Bad Company (WDHA105.5 here plays way too much Bad Co. )
5. Livin' On A Prayer - Bon Jovi
6. Roxanne - The Police
7. Boulevard Of Broken Dreams - Green Day
8. Another Brick In The Wall Part II - Pink Floyd
9. Enter Sandman - Metallica
10. Foolin/Rock Of Ages - Def Leppard
11. Come Together/Hey Jude/Let It Be - The Beatles
12. Panama - Van Halen

Make up your own list. But, remember! These need not necessarily be songs that you dislike/hate... could be ones you're bored to death with, or even a combination of the two.

That's a good list, Zootlesque.

I'd add:

Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
Rock the Casbah - The Clash
Take Me On - A-Ha
My Charona - The Knack
Always Something There to Remind Me - ?? Naked Eyes?

Really, we could go on like this for days. And really, we probably will.

Lately they've been playing "Be Yourself" by Audioslave A LOT. However, I think "Under the Bridge" has been played out so many times that it's lost the original significance it once had with me.

I meant to add Hotel California but forgot. Why won't it count?

As much as I love Green Day's Holiday to death, they do overplay it here on the radio.

I haven't listened to the radio since 1996, so I'm a happy camper.

but when I turn on the radio (er the rare times that I do...) they seem to overplay: The Killers, Green Day, Metallica, and Nirvana.

i don't listen to the radio anymore either. if i do it's my xm radio and i listen to the classic rock or the 80s station. people are always shocked that i've not heard the new good/bad song/artist. i don't listen to the radio, how would i know what interpol's new song sounds like, or even who interpol is for that matter? (that was just an example, btw. i do know who interpol is.)

i like it.
