    That goes for all your "La La La's" and "Do Do Do's" too (Special dispensation to the Stylistics)


    No Doo Wop neither?
    I love that shit.

    Flutes

    Punk drummers who don't know how to play a convincing backbeat (lay the fuck back!)

    Most reggae made after 1980

    alt-rock singers who sing in the "Cobain" voice

    contemporary soul singers who sing in the wavering Stevie Wonder voice (some are so young they probably think they're imitating R. Kelly)

    Pamplemousse (the hipster duo who do indie-rock versions of contemporary soul hits; the songs they're covering probably aren't shit anyway, but the female half's emotionless voice gets to me...and not in a good way)

    Anyone besides Coltrane or Steve Lacy playing the sorprano sax...anyone besides these dudes playing it is just making bird mating sounds...I guess Dave Leibman and Gary Bartz get a pass as well, but it takes a special player to make this god-awful horn sound good

    I don't totally hate this instrument, but I remember listening to one of those Wildflowers avant-jazz comps and thinking: goddamn, I wish they'd ease up on that shrill sound every once in a while

    I don't know who started it - Cobain or Vedder - but I suspect we're talkin' 'bout the same damn thing. Whoever the creator was...that "sound" has got to go!

    nah...the Vedder thing is that "yeeeeuh" deep, long held note thing thing like Collective Soul and crap...Cobain is more of an intelligible garble punctuated with screams. Y'all are talking about different things...

    This version's pretty good, though.

    I'm sitting in a hot tub in a hotel courtyard in New Orleans at about 4 a.m. during Mardi Gras???this huge-ass thing that was more like a minipool. Some dude comes out with an acoustic guitar and starts singing American Pie, apparently trying to seduce the ladies ('cause you know that schtick is the height of aphrodisia). I have never been closer to beating a man to death with his own guitar.

    Mack the Knife. Any version, any time.

    Pete Rock and CL Smooth - "T.R.O.Y." (although the Tom Scott song gets a pass forever)
    ATCQ - "Scenario" (the remix is still fair game)
    MOP - "Ante Up" (especially if your dumb ass plays the remix)
    Pharoahe Monch - "Simon Says" (especially when playing it right before or after "Ante Up")

    There's lots more, sadly enough. Lazy hip-hop DJs are turning classics into disappointments.

    Hahah. Hey Soul Sister AKA EARS A BLEED.

    Ditto. Train's song "Marry Me" is also pretty annoying. My spin instructor plays it (by request) during the cool down in our class. Why would you think it's a good idea to request that song? And for a spin class?

    Pink is killing me slowly. How is she so popular? Her label must be paying the radio stations good money to keep "Raise Your Glass" on blast all day months and months after its release. Goodness gravy!

    ABBA. If I never hear another one of their songs again it will be too soon.

    Perhaps to get you the hell outta there like why record store employees often play incredibly annoying music.
