When it comes to my least favorite songs, you guys know me for taking a rusy shovel to the likes of The Black Eyed Peas, Miley Cyrus, Jason DeRulo and other pop acts. However, you hardly ever hear me berate and degrade songs of my core genre. Coming soon is a list of my "top" 30 least favorite rock songs ever.

I know I took forever, but I'm finally ready to start counting them down. All of the blue titles hotlink to the songs, so if you want an alternative to sticking spoons in your ears, audio torture is just a click away.
The list of my top 30 least favorite rock songs of all-time kicks off with none other than Slash, one of the greatest guitarists of the last quarter-century. For some reason, he thought this crappy hookup with Wolfmother's Andrew Stockdale was worthy of being a single. The vocals here are as nerve-wracking as you could imagine, and on top of that there's nothing memorable about Slash's guitar playing.
I'll be the first to admit that this is a song that has done it all. It topped the Billboard Hot 100, three radio charts and won Song Of the Year at the 2009 Grammy Awards. Of course, like many songs that have commercial and critical success, your boy KP just wasn't feeling it. This song always rubbed me the wrong way and to this day I can't stand it.
Bon Jovi weren't up to much in the '90s, but they managed to score a big hit in 1994 with this snoozefest. What's even worse than the song is that it overshadowed some excellent rock songs that deserved more mainstream success..."Far Behind" by Candlebox, anyone?
You guys know me as being a big fan and supporter of Kid Rock, but I have no problem calling him out on his misses. Somehow, this terrible duet with Sheryl Crow became a smash hit, and turned around the Cocky era in a big way. Some people say the song makes them want to cry...it makes me want to eat my eyes.
I agree with you a lot more on this set. I don't remember "Always" but I remember it being very boring. But Queen? WTF, man. "Careless Whisper" was my #2 song of 2009.
I don't get Queen in general, but that song is just too much for me. They're one of the classic rock bands that I can never see myself getting into. As for "Careless Whisper," I would have much rather seen "No Jesus Christ" be released as a 4th single from Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces. However, I can be honest and say that it wouldn't have been as successful, especially on Alt.
Hey hey yeah...yeah hey hey yeah yeah hey hey yeah yeah hey hey yeah...it's Metallica! This song was one of the biggest active rock hits of 2000, one of their highest-peaking songs on the Alternative chart and it also totally sucks. It's the first of two Metallica songs to appear on this list.
As many of you probably know, I'm a huge fan of the Alternative charts of 1998. In fact, I have often said that they are the very best charts of all-time. However, this #1 Alt hit from '98 is a glaring exception. What an obnoxious little song this was!
It's hard to believe this is the same vocalist who sang on such awesome tracks as "Outshined" and "Spoonman," and it's even harder to believe this is the same group of musicians who did songs like "Killing In the Name" and "People Of the Sun." What is this crap?
A true enemy of mine from last year, and the first of two songs from 2011 to make my top 5. With the most unoriginal, uninspired lyrics I have ever heard, this garbage somehow managed to hit #1 on active rock. Awful, just awful.
What the hell was this? Of all the big alternative hits that I just don't understand, this is the biggest one of all. From the beginning to the end, I find myself cringing at the annoying, endless guitar riffs, the disgusting vocals and the nonsensical lyrics. This song is like giving my feet an acupuncture with rotted needles.
This nightmare...where do I begin? The opening piano loop annoys the hell out of me, I always thought the vocals were an R&B female who was losing her voice and the lyrics don't inspire me to do anything but change the station. I don't know exactly why I hate this song so much, but it has always annoyed me, and I have always got upset at rock stations just for playing it. Hating this song? It means everything. ;D
