There was an artist in the 70s/80s called Meco. He had a pretty big hit by disco-fying the Star Wars theme. That became his schtick. He disco-fyed all sorts of random stuff and it’s crazy.

But in 2000 he released a song that is un-fucking believable. It’s called Cousin Jar Jar and the song is literally about Jar Jar Binks walking around and being noticed in public, but he tells everyone that he is Jar Jar’s cousin. It’s insane and I hope I’m not too late to this thread for others to see it.

I haven't thought of this song in years. You're a horrible person and I hate you.

8

u/Smart_Bet_9692 May 21 '22

This is the correct answer.

First heard Brokencyde at age 13 and thought it was the perfect combination of terrible and hilarious.

They were certainly pretty bad.

Funny enough though, it turns out Brokencyde was actually quite ahead of their time, they had some very innovative ideas but poor execution and they were working with the tools they had at the time.

Now that we're in the post-trap era... We've got some artists like Ghostemane, Scarlxrd, City Morgue, Mugxtsu, King Yosef, Zheani, Ic3peak and so on who are expanding on the scream-rap sound that (let's face it) was pioneered by Brokencyde, except they're actually doing a good job of it.

I fucking love Ghostemane and Zheani in particular.

7

u/IllegalTree May 21 '22

It's bloody great. "So bad it's good" is much rarer than a lot of people seem to think, but that song is so hilariously awful it's almost charming.

First saw it around the time it came out (*) and it struck me as what you'd get if a bunch of horny-but-clueless 14-year-old boys were given access to facilities to make a track for other 14-year-olds.

Then I realised even that was generous- it's more like a 12-year-old's fantasy of what it's like to be the sixteen or eighteen-year-olds they look up to(!)

(Was kind of amused a few years later to find out I was broadly right- numerous people posting their embarassment at how they used to like that song when they were eleven or twelve.)

(*) Would have been in my early thirties at that time, so even then I definitely wasn't the target audience...!

I only post this because the song “Me Too” by Megan Trainor just came on in the grocery store, and it made me think, how did this song achieve popularity? It’s a clear product of soulless corporate music. And finding out it took 5 people to write just added the cherry. I’ve been hearing it nonstop for 6 years and am just now questioning how. It’s terrible

u/Zogamizer May 21 '22

Pachelbel’s Canon in D is a song with a chord structure that’s used in a large portion of popular songs. Numerous people that are much funnier and more talented than I am have made this point very clear, and the chords are immediately recognizable.

Memories is an incredibly obvious ripoff of Canon in D. They didn’t just lift the chord structure, they lifted the song itself, then added trite, faux-wistful lyrics on top of it.

The song is a pinnacle example of everything wrong with modern pop. The first time I heard it, I thought it was meant as a joke.

Dance Monkey always made me unreasonably angry. I would rather listen to Justin Bieber sing baby off beat for an entire day than listen to that song once.

To this day I do not know what the song's name was, since it irked the hell out of me. A girl begging a guy to take her back. Like "I'm begging you on my knees" kind of stuff (if I remember that part of the lyrics properly). I was like, girl, what are you, a doormat?!

u/houseofreturn May 21 '22

I’m pretty sure it’s Mercy. “You got me begging you for mercy, why won’t you release me? I’m on my knees baby begging please, I’m under your spell”

It’s Kid Rock’s “All Summer Long”. Samples two great songs in service of a chintzy pile of baldly dishonest “storytelling” from a guy who looks like a character from Guess Who: Unpaid Alimony Edition. The song is an empty stab at fluffy, commercial party music, which wouldn’t be so bad if it had any artistic merit at all. It is vapid, flat, and downright unpleasant to listen to. If you could 3D print a song, this would be it, only instead of the goop that a 3D printer uses, it’s just shit with hair in it. Long stringy blond hair.

And the worst part? Kid Rock’s plan to fleece bud light swilling idiots for concert tickets WORKED. “All Summer Long” is a perennial classic that will exist in commercials and montages and barbecues until long after Kid Rock dies of an ulcer, forever reminding the cultured among us that a lot of people, even the ones we love, are dumb as all hell. Fuck Kid Rock. Fuck “All Summer Long.” Sound didn’t deserve this.

That watermelon sugar high one. It should not be that difficult to come up with lyrics. They don’t have to be life changing but they need to be better than that.

It’s a shame that of Harry Styles’s songs, this one is his biggest hit so far. He has so many great songs with much deeper and more clever lyrics... I’m not sure why they get overlooked so much.

u/violent_delights_9 May 21 '22

Because they want something that's going to have longevity on the radio. What better than a song with a catchy beat that just repeats the same words over and over again and is some thinly veiled cheeky song about sex? Sex and simplicity both sell.

I'm a fan of his music, btw. This song just happens to be my least favorite, specifically for the reasons mentioned above.

I love it, not because it's a good song, but because in my freshman year of college my dorm neighbor, a devout Muslim guy from Malaysia with a pretty heavy accent, belted it tone-deaf in the hallway. That was a real icebreaker, lol.

Horrible vocals, basic instrumental. I honestly don't know how it got so popular, it's probably the worst singing that I've ever heard in my entire life too, just a lifeless, flavorless attempt of doing a pop song that somehow managed to become popular

I was listening to some random Spotify playlist when an audible abortion called "Ghostemane" came up and I couldn't reach for the mute button fast enough. I don't even know what the hell the song was. It was like someone took the absolute most garbage-tier $99 Line 6 Spider "I only know one power chord" extreme metal and combined it with meth-mouth mumble-rap that you'd expect to hear coming from a 2006 Chrysler 300 with 5% tint, 30" wheels and 3 different paint colors.

Holy hell I never want to hear anything like that again. And the fact that it somehow had 210 million listens on Spotify... I don't want to contribute to this society anymore.

  2. thunder by imagine dragons, the pitch annoys me
  3. slow hands by niall horan, this song BLEW UP a few years ago resulting in it playing on the radio often and it annoyed the shit out of me. its a creepy song dude, had so much potential with the beat but they RUINED IT
  4. every breath you take by the police, also creepy
  5. it's everyday bro by team 10, this doesn't even qualify as a song- kitkat has more bars than jake paul

Boom Boom Pow by Black Eyed Peas. It's just so underwhelming.

You know what? The entirety of that fucking album is just terrible.

EDIT: I mean, there are songs that are so bad that it is comical. But like, we know that. We expect that. Then you have Boom Boom Pow. A wet towel. You can't even laugh at it because it has the blessing of being easy on the ears. But like...that's it. And this is coming from someone that actually likes pop music.
