Not wishing to put a damper on this as I have songs that I can't stand, but the problem with questions like this is that everyone is different we all like/dislike different things, a crap song for you and me maybe the perfect song for someone else, (bit like footballers). The thing is I don't object to anyone getting up on a stage and giving it a go, because it is not something I would or could do myself, so fair play to anyone that can make a go of something.





Even these  ?

Mouldy old dough - Lieutenant pigeon


But as you say, good luck to them

Particularly all Pop music after 1995 ( as that is as far as i can remember back being 25) till current day, all boy/girl groups and everyone's favorite Candaian Justin Beiber.

Oh Marc Bolan, how can you hate him. He was my idol when I was young. Still got a single of his. He was one of the most good looking guys I have ever known

Wow.  Everyone to his own I suppose.  One of my favourite's…

Thinking more along the lines of the Birdie Song or Shut up your face myself as worst songs to have been successful.  Although so many to choose from

My dreams came true in 1987 when Appetite For Destruction was released and The Smiths broke up!

Of course Axl, heavily influenced by The New York Dolls, a band which heavily influenced a certain Steven Patrick Morrissey and I did hear a rumour that Johnny Marr was asked to replace Slash, certainly a more original guitarist and English, to boot.

Have to admit to liking most of the songs on the lists so far.

Still for me U2 are the biggest, successful band never to have produced anything of note.

John Lennon's 'Imagine' is a particular annoyance to me because people really never listen to the words. They are really rather annoying.
