    Default 'Classic' songs that you've always hated

    Got any songs that you hate with a passion but that are considered classics and for the most part loved by everybody?

    Here are a few of mine that have always been classic rock radio staples:

    Major Tom - This song makes my skin crawl. As soon as I hear, "Ground Control to Major Tom...", I want to drive off a fucking cliff.

    In The Air Tonight - Is there a more depressing song? The beat is painfully slow and dark, the words are depressing, and the video scared me when I was a kid. What a miserable song. I really don't mind Phil Collins, but this song sucks bad.

    Nights In White Satin - Just put a bullet in me. I can't find the right words to describe how much I think this song sucks. I hear this fucking song and I just want to drink myself into oblivion.

    Layla - I'm sure I'm alone on an island on this one, but I find this song excruciatingly long, I think the guitar riff is piercing and annoying, and the singing just bothers me. There's just something about this song that bugs the shit out of me. I have never liked it.

    I know there are plenty more if I really thought about it, but these come to mind pretty easily.
    .

    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    I used to go to this bar in the 80s that had a jukebox. Someone would always play Eric Clapton's Cocaine and Bob Dylan's Everybody Must Get Stoned (or whatever it's called). I don't like either of those songs.

    I don't know how big these songs are, but they were all classic rock staples at one point or anohter:

    My Sharona
    Goin' Mobile
    Tempted (I think that's the name, Squeeze I think)
    every INXS song I can think of (Devil Inside comes to mind)
    Money (I like Pink Floyd in general)

    I never really got into the Doors either. After that movie came out, I had my lifetime fill of them.

    Anything by the Rolling Stones. I never undertood what the big deal was about them. And to be quite frank, they wouldn't even exist if it hadn't been for them riding in on the popularity of the Beatles during the whole "British Invasion". The Fab Four owns all.
