Songs that flat out suck but still get played on the radio for some reason!

Okay, I try my best not to listen to the radio. But when it's slow at work and I want something in the background, I can't help but turn it on cos I don't have speakers so I can't play any CDs. But when songs like the following get played on a regular basis, I have to go

Urgent - Foreigner

Any song by Bad Company fest

Fly Like An Eagle - Steve Miller Band :zzz: Boring would be an understatement I think.

If I Had A Million Dollars - Barenaked Ladies: This one just flat out annoys me.

Aerosmith's Dream On, Zeppelin's D'yer M'aker, Clapton's Layla... endless boring classic rock

The thing is why are these even being played on a repeated basis? Where's the appeal in these songs? I just don't see it!

Rant over. lol.

Sublime-Santeria that song is old and it sucked to begin with and they play it every damn day. I'm emailing KROQ

the lyrics are ".. If I could find that heina and that sancho that she'd found
Well I'd pop a cap in sancho and I'd slap her down"

That's the most overplayed song ever on college campuses at parties and stuff.

that fact is most radio sucks, they play lots of shit music and they play the odd good song so many times that you get sick of it. i haven't listened to any radio for years. literally.

That's true. Like right now, Jack FM here is playing The Stones' Sympathy For The Devil for the 9843756584936th time! Why???

Those woo woo's annoy the shit outta me.
