The WORST Songs of the 80’s

According to Rolling Stone Magazine, THE worst song is Starship’s “We Built This City”

And yeah, that song definitely hits high on the suck-o-meter. Most other tunes that made the Top 10 Worst Songs of the 80’s list in Rolling Stone were Top 40 tunes such as Wham’s “Wake Me Up (Before You Go Go)”, Men Without Hats “The Safety Dance” and Toni Basil’s “Mickey.” And yes – they all suck too.

But, in my opinion, the absolute worst song of the 80’s is Styx’s “Mr. Roboto.” When that song used to come on the radio in my car, I couldn’t just change the station – I would literally want to pull over and rip out the entire stereo from the dash.  That’s how badly I hate that song.  It makes me want to kill puppies….and I usually love puppies.  Amazingly, “Mr. Roboto” didn’t make the Rolling Stone list, but it’s at the top of my personal list. 

So I’ve got to know: What song from the 80’s do YOU hate the most?  You don’t even have to tell me why you hate it – maybe it just annoys you for no good reason. Oh, and if you just love “Mr. Roboto”, then I’m sorry if I insulted you, but am seriously questioning your musical taste. ~Nicci
