What is the most WTF awful song ever made?

For me, it has to be Archie Shepp's Quite Dawn.  I don't know how anybody rides for this song.  For the longest i didn't even know the lyrics were in English.  I play for other people as a joke. I used to embarrass my kids by blasting it from the car speakers.  I've never actually made it to the end.  I thought it was a joke for a while and then read that the singer was his daughter.  It reminds me of Puberty Love from Attack of The Killer Tomatoes (filmed right here in San Diego, for what that's worth) - a song so bad that it's the only thing that can kill the tomatoes.



Runner up is this *&^% masterpiece:



I wonder if Herbie Hancock ever heard this and what he thought of it.  If i had to write lyrics to Chameleon I don't know what I would come up with, but it should as hell would not have the phrase "their gonna rape your mama" in it.

Danger is in the air
Chameleons everywhere
The full moon just came out
I hear a woman shout
They're coming over the sea
To look for you an me
Chameleons all around
I saw my daddy frown
They have big purple eyes
Their teeth are  long and green
Burning down our house (what??)
They're stealing all our clothes (what??)
They're gonna rape your mama (WHAT?!!!)
They're gonna save our soul
Chameleons all around
They on us gettin' down
Oh lawd, oh lawd, tell me what do i do now?

Now faster than a dove
Beauty and truth and love
Will fly away and leave
A heart of pain and blues
I got to party too
But that ain't nothing new
Our minds are almost dead
You better check your head (OH MY GOD I THINK IT IS A METAPHOR FOR DRUGS)
I would love to see
A grown man when he cry
Now they don't give a damn
Whether you live or die
Their teeth are long and green
They'll wipe you off the scene
Danger is in the air
Strange feelings everywhere
Oh lawd oh lawd tell me what do i do now

Say there is not much time
They're gonna blow our mind
They'll put you in a ghetto
a rat will bite your toe
they're full of so much hate
must be from watergate
you think you know their book
they got a brand new look
you thought you saw a rat
But now there goes a bat
I mean how else can i say
Chameleons gettin' down
They follow us all around
Chameleons gettin' down
oh lawd oh law tell me what can i do now

    Some of you may remember this one. While its goofiness is intentional, it's still obnoxious.

    Yeah I suppose I should have specified between intentionally and unintentionally bad. 

    This straddles the line. I think it’s a joke, but at the time I heard the guy had serious mental health issues.

    whereas in the first two videos they dead serious.

    "This dude's wearing a Yamaha". That was good. It had its share of alt-rock radio play here also. The woman in the video is beautiful.

    Johnny Rebel (banned by YouTube and Discogs) is garbage music for garbage people. I wonder how many of his 45s are still out there.

     No offence to your daughter but if you had said “My 8 year old daughter did this in Ableton to me me”, I would have believed you. 

    What TF do producers of “children’s music” think?!?!?
