La La definitely makes me want to shove a fork in my brain.

you know, i could agree with this if i never heard 'native son'.

native son was great, granted it needed some polishing up in certain areas, but it was a great rock song that actually wasn't dumb either.

how many catchy rock singles can actually claim that?

but it wouldn't topped the charts, they felt. really a shame they had to dumb it down, in my opinion.

but whatever. vertigo is far from the worst song out there, and the only reason i talked about it in the first place is because the author did.

what's this toby keith song all about? i know nothing by him, but isn't he some redneck?

2. Get Your Tongue Otta My Mouth 'Cause I'm Kissing You Goodbye
3. Her Teeth Was Stained, But Her Heart Was Pure
4. How Can I Miss You If You Won't Go Away?
5. I Can't Get Over You, So Why Don't You Get Under Me
6. I Don't Know Whether To Kill Myself Or Go Bowling
7. I Got In At 2 With a 10, And Woke Up At 10 With a 2.
8. I Hate Every Bone In Your Body Except For Mine
9. I Just Bought A Car From A Guy That Stole My Girl, But The Car
Don't Run, So I figure We Got An Even Deal
10. I Keep Forgettin' I Forgot About You
11. I Liked You Better Before I Knew You So Well
12. I Still Miss You Baby, But My Aim's Gettin' Better
13. I Wouldn't Take Her To A Dog Fight, Cause I'm Afraid She'd Win
14. I'll Marry You Tomorrow But Let's Honeymoon Tonight
15. I'm So miserable Without You, It's Like Having You Here
16. I've Got Tears in My Ears From Lying On My Back While I Cry Over you
17. If I Can't Be Number One In Your Life, Then Number Two On You
18. If I Had Shot You When I Wanted To, I'd Be Out By Now
19. Mama Get A Hammer (There's A Fly On Papa's Head)
20. My Head Hurts, My Feet Stink, And I Love Rovers
21. My Wife Ran Off With My Best Friend, and I Sure Do Miss Him
22. Please Bypass this Heart
23. She Got The Ring and I Got The Finger
24. You're the Reason Our Kids Are So Ugly

I feel like my IQ has plummetted......

i'm not even sure why they bother to try and top american radio charts anymore. i know they wanted to compete with britney spears and shit but they just can't and that's the way it is.

it's probably better that you don't know of him. he's written several highly "patriotic" songs since 9/11 and whatnot. look up lyrics for "the taliban song" or "the angry american" if you want to see some of his stuff. i've heard that "the taliban song" is in jest, but even still i don't really think it's in good taste. i saw a girl practically get boo-ed off of a karaoke stage here in philly for singing it. i laughed.

On the top of my head I can list the following.

1. Sex and Candy by Marcy's Playground
2. Any song by bowling for soup.

I like "Sex And Candy". And I also noticed "Elevation" mentioned in here...I like that one, too.

zooty? are you ok?

That's their new song, right? I think I heard it once and it was like the most boring thing ever (yes, even more boring than 'Fix You,' this year's candidate for "most overrated song ever" [since ever is really only about a year])

Hoobastank is worse than any of these though. And Creed might even be worse!

Coldplay's Fix You is easily one of the stupidest songs I've ever heard.

sometimes i wonder if people even give music a chance or if they simply write it off and start bashing it because it somehow "threatens" u2 and is "cool" to dislike.

I agree with however said Vertigo is overrated.

And without even looking through the entire thread I can guess with 95% certainty that one or two people dared to suggest that Vertigo doesn't deserve all the praise it's gotten, only to be roundly assailed by the types who if Bono released an album consisting of his youngest son playing the spoons, would proclaim it was a masterpiece.

That's not to say Vertigo is a bad song. It's actually ok, it just doesn't deserve the adulation it gets on here, or in the music press either, for that matter.

That's my pennysworth, take it or leave it.
