What terrible songs do you like?

Guilty pleasures exist for everyone. Usually its movies and games, but often they are bands, or just songs.

What terrible, terrible songs do you love, despite how terrible they are?

Me, I just love "Crawling" by Linkin Park. It's just.... SO MUCH OVER-THE-TOP ANGST. It's beautiful. I can't help but love it.

I am wasting my first thread on something so silly, hrrhrr.

Actually I think Linkin Park is just a guilty pleasure entirely, but "Crawling" has a special, special place in my heart.

So, Escapist, let's hear your guilty pleasure songs! :)

Matt & Kim - Lessons Learned
I recognise how amateurish their sound is, but I just love it to its indie core!


Also the video is funny.
PS: OP you kinda ninja'd me with Crawling!

Avril lavigne. All of her music is a sin comparred to what I normally listen to but I just can't stop!

OK! FINE. I LIKE THE SONG BARBIE GIRL.

There, I said it.

"Reach" by S Club 7. My younger sister loved that band when we were kids, and I did too for a bit until I realized their song lyrics seemed more suitable for girls instead. "Reach" especially was a cheerful upbeat song about rainbows, friendship and "following your heart". Utter tripe.

A decade later, someone paired it with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

And it is awesome.

What's Up?: 4 Non Blondes.
Love it. If you know it and love it, go to:
www.blackacrebrewing.com and hit, "I'm under 21" for Epic Lulz.

It's not porn. It's a beer company.

HEYAYEYEYAYYAYEYYEYEYAY

Never Say Never by Justin Bieber

He Man's version of 'What's Going On'

I uh.... Honestly like "Never gonna give you up".....

Tik Tok's lyrics are comical gold, and the beat's pretty catchy too.

Call me maybe..... When I first heard it I thought it was horrible, but I've heard it more and more and can't help but love it.

Scarecrow1001:
I uh.... Honestly like "Never gonna give you up".....

Haaahahahaha I like that one, too. But it's not terrible, it's awesome! Awesome I say!
(Brofist nao?)

What?
Why would I like bad songs? That's silly.

Well I like Maroon 5... their first album I can honestly say I like... they're my guilty pleasure band... so my favorite song off of that album...<.<

You are not alone, sometimes when I'm checking out new movie trailers and I spot one that's obviously a rick roll I click it just to hear the song. So this is my answer as well.

I like Right Round by Flo-Rida. Catchy beat. One of the few club songs I enjoy.

So Lucky, Zdob si Zdub

The Moldovian entry to Eurovision last year, it's mad and I love it!

Joining the chorus of "Never Gonna Give You Up"s.

I also listen to a lot of soundtracks.

Umm, I was gonna go with Friday but nah, I think 'Girlfriend' fits the niche perfectly.

That the average user would deem awful? Okay, this will take awhile, since I listen to EVERYTHING:

"Lucky" by Britney Spears
"Come Clean" by Hilary Duff
Nickelback in general
"Shots" by LMFAO
"New Divide" by Linkin Park
"What I've Done" by Linkin Park
"Welcome to the Black Parade" by My Chemical Romance
"As Long As You Love Me" by Backstreet Boys
"Ghost of You and Me" by BBMak
"Drive Myself Crazy" by nSync
"Take on Me" by A-Ha and by Powerglove
"My Happy Ending" by Avril Lavigne
"Wind Beneath My Wings" by Bette Midler
"That's the Way It Is" by Celine Dion
"Live This Life" by Big n' Rich
"Thunder Rolls" by Garth Brooks

"Numb/Encore" by Linkin Park and Jay-Z
"Top of the World" by Mitchell Musso
"Last Resort" by Papa Roach
"Lights Out" by Rick Astley

And more, that's just the 4-star songs.

I like a lot of the bad songs that's been out in the last 30 years. I want Candy by Bow Wow Wow. Juice Newton's Angel of the Morning, Celine Dion's Because You Loved Me, any song that appears on a Now That's What I Call Music.

My Current Favorite Terrible Songs are:

We're gonna have some fun tonight
Cause you can touch my boobies!
Don't be Shy now It's all right
Cause you can touch my boobies

Awful, catchy and infectious.

ohhh thank you for this. I'm totally favoriting the site now.

I don't like any terrible songs. I'm just elitist that way.

I don't like terrible songs. I listen to songs that I like and don't think are terrible.

Basshunter - Boten Anna

....there's a CD full of songs sung by wrestlers, and I love them all

Lady Gaga. I blame it on my mind making the connection between her music and the cafe/restaurant I went to every day before uni, but now I find myself enjoying her music despite generally hating the genre.

To be fair though, she's a fantastic singer when she lets loose.

Heman owns this song. That is all.

Insance Clown Posse gets either the like or angry hatred treatment. Most of their lyrics I would definitely call wack, but they actually wrote some strong melody's.

You probably think I'm kidding.
This is probably the only objectively terrible song I enjoy. And I don't even know why.

I guess I could say P!nk, but I'm unrepentant about that. I honestly think she's great and don't see her as a guilty pleasure. I get a lot of funny looks when I come out and say it though, since I'm a metalhead :P

As for an actual guilty pleasure, Electric Dreams by The Human League:

I like Safety Dance by Men with Hats just because it's a very silly song and makes me grin like an idiot when I hear it.

Also Walk like an Egyptian by The Bangles for much the same reason.

Moonlight Butterfly:

I object, Safety Dance isn't terrible, it is fantasic :D

Lectori Salutem:

Well I think it's awesome but I've met a lot of people who don't rofl.

Peter Griffin likes it too!
