The other day, I heard a Styx song on the radio. Styx is what I would consider a hall of fame rock band. I don’t know if they’re in the hall of fame, but they’re certainly one of the greats. The song I heard, however, is one of the worsts songs ever. It got me thinking about great bands with really bad songs, so I started compiling a list
Styx – Mr. Roboto
The Steve Miller Band – Abracadabra
Jefferson Airplane (Starship) – We Built This City on Rock ‘n Roll
The Jefferson Airpane one is a bit of a stretch. They were hardly the same band in the ’80’s as they were in their prime. But it’s my list, so I can do whatever I want.
I’m sure there’s more – so help me out. I’m looking for bands that are universally recognized as “great” who have songs that are universally recognized as “sucky” or worse. For instance, I think Tears In Heaven is the worst Claption song ever, but I think there are a lot of people who like it, so I wouldn’t classify it as universally sucky.
