    Default Terrible Songs on Great Albums

    http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdail...-great-albums/

    From rollingstone.com 7/12/06

    List of the Day: Terrible Songs on Great Albums
    You know what we’re talking about: That song that makes you grateful for the invention of the “skip” button, on that album you can’t stop playing, which means that you don’t stop skipping …

    Here are our pet peeves, those imperfections in the Navajo carpet of a great album which remind us that these artists are human:

    The Beatles, “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” on Abbey Road

    The Who, “Squeeze Box” on The Who By Numbers

    The Police, “Be My Girl - Sally” on Outlandos D’Amour

    The Velvet Underground, “The Gift” on White Light/White Heat

    James Brown, “Spinning Wheel” on Sex Machine

    Led Zeppelin, “In The Light” on Physical Graffiti

    Pink Floyd, “Waiting for the Worms” on The Wall

    Simon & Garfunkel, “Voices of Old People” on Bookends

    AC/DC, “Let Me Put My Love Into You” on Back In Black

    Run-DMC, “Perfection” on Raising Hell

    What are yours?

    Rolling Stone can go eat a diseased ass.
    Having them judge music is like having David Duke speak at an NAACP banquet.

    Rolling Stone magazine is not worthy enough to be used as Robert Plant's toilet paper.

    I agree with that one completely. The rest I could give two shits about. It's not stuff that I listen to anyway.

    Let me get this straight. Compile a list of some of the better tunes on some very popular albums, number them, then publish them in a column titled "Terrible Songs On Great Albums" to fill in the space that was once held by advertisements, yet no longer is because even advertisers know that Rolling Stone lost it's relevance years ago.

    Is that the general idea?

    Thanks for saving me the time and money on actually buying the fucking thing. Besides, I hit a great sale on Charmin at Publix, thus making the magazine's purchase redundant, anyway.

    "Mother" on Police's Synchronicity. It is the only song I didn't transfer from the Message in a Box compilation to my iPod.

    Those idiot critics over at RS are SO hipocritical it's sad. I bet a lot of those tunes were praised when they were initially released...and now they want to shit on them because they're not what's 'happening' today... Puh-LEASE...gimme a break. They've just completely lost touch with reality over there...

    To whom it may concern over at RS...

    ...Fuck Yourself!
    Lyrics by Steve Vai

    Fuck yourself with a rubber hose
    Stick it in your mouth and down your throat
    Up your nose and in your heinie hole
    I don't care where it goes
    And it don't matter if you're straight or gay
    You should fuck yourself anyway

    Now, you don't have to listen to a word I say
    But I know you, you'll be humpin' away
    Fuck yourself with your neighbor's nose
    If you can't use that, use a 10-foot pole
    Stick it up your ass and go for a stroll
    Everyone will know you've been to this show

    If you can't take, eat my stool
    Masturbate with some crazy glue
    I don't care what you do
    Fock yourself with a garden tool

    Fuck yourself with politics
    Ahh they're full of fuckin' fuckin' shit
    I mean you know we've been lied to ever since we were born
    It's amazing that we've been getting fucked that long

    Fuck yourself with the world wide web
    Man you could ride that sucker right from your bed
    You may even meet a Tom, Dick, Jane or Billy
    Then grab onto your modem and fuck yourself silly

    Fuck yourself with your heart and soul
    Give it everything you got, hey I'm talkin' to you
    If you can't even fuck yourself,
    How ya gonna fuck somebody else?

    Fuck yourself with my microphone
    I'll give it to you later when we're all alone
    We can turn it up loud
    And see if you come, but
    Don't get your jizz on my microphone

    Fuck yourself with organized religion
    Now that is some seriously sinnin' business
    If the Lord sees their pathetic crimes
    He'll be fuckin' them 'til the end of time

    And can someone explain to me this racist crap
    I know it isn't white, but it isn't black
    And to all you people who only see things your way
    Well, you can suck my dick and take all day

    Fuck your nose with a pound of blow
    Watch your money get up and go
    but when you burnt your brain and you say
    I don't know!
    I hate to tell you but I told you so

    Fuck yourself with this grunge rock noise
    I mean, stuff those albums in your groin
    They come down on me because I know how to play -
    Hey... fuck you!


    Fuck yourself with a copy of Rolling Stone
    Or are they too holy for your holiest of holes
    Now those people think they're holier than Moses
    But aren't they just a bunch of fuckin' posers


    Fuck yourself with your mother's jewelry
    I won't tell, I ain't a stooly
    If you pounce hard enough you'll cough up a ruby
    Your blood will be rich and so will your doodie

    Fuck yourself with the latest fashion
    With your spikes and your hair and those cute little buttons
    And if you happen to have some leather and lace
    Fuck yourself 'til you're blue in the face

    Fuck yourself with your income tax
    They're fucking you and that's a fact
    Before you know it your money's all spent
    And you've just been fucked by the government

    Fuck yourself with your lawyer friend
    You're the only one that's getting fucked in the end
    I have been so fucked by legal bills
    that my asshole is the size of Beverly Hills

    Fuck yourself with your full-length sweater
    With your minks and your diamonds and your Irish Setter
    With your cash and your trash and your sinks and your drinks
    Just fuck yourself 'til you can't even think
    Those of you who enjoy this song
    thank you thank you, I love you
    Let's get it on
    But for those of you who are totally outraged
    Fuck yourself with your face



    There. I feel SO much better now...

    I second that. In The Light was one of the first songs I tried to play on guitar. That tune fuckin kicks major ass. Love the build up in that one.

    Fuck RS!

    Interesting responses. I didn't agree with most of the ones listed (of the records I have), as well.

    I didn't anticipate this much venom towards RS in general. I have no opinion on it one way or the other, just interesting..

    I won't attempt to speak for others, yet for me RS has showed as much astute foresight in the past 15-20 years as Major League Baseball.

    Where to begin? One could start with the curious and false ceremony of the RRHOF, and Rolling Stone's less than altruistic means of pursuing it. This convoluted mess started with good intentions, yet basically has turned into a suckfest for aging industry insiders to celebrate (through a convoluted electoral process) certain artists while ignoring others, all so they bathe in reflected glory. (Jann Wenner is on the board of the RRHOF, leading to extensive coverage of what has become a rather ho-hum and meaningless event.)

    How about the magazine's truly rudderless policy of what constitutes a viable, worthwhile talent nowadays? The yearly "Poll" of the 10 best albums would lead to, if purchased, one of the most over-priced collection of beer coasters ever seen.(Consistency? A record that is slammed in February is called a "must own" in December. )

    Then there are the various "Greatest Guitarist" or "Greatest Albums" issues that are periodically dished out with a load of hype, that once and again show how out of touch the magazine's editorial staff really is, usually picking some "flash in the pan" (that will be forgotten in two years, let alone by the end of the summer) over a true and proven artist with a track-record or established career.

    This is called pandering. It is also alienating to one who had at one time been a subscriber, for as long as 25 years, yet elected not to renew the said subscription as a result.

    The ultimate consequence? Rolling Stone offers me little that is surprising or insightful. It just continues to plunge ever deeper beneath mediocrity, a status it achieved a decade ago.

    I'm sorry, but I can't stand "Let Me Put My Love Into You" by AC/DC. I skip that song every time I play that CD. It has to be my least favorite AC/DC song ever.

    On the subject of Rolling Stone though, I agree with everyone else. They have never been relevant in my opinion, and are less so as the years go on.

    That shitty rag can go fuck itself.

    And I honestly like "Let me put my love into you" a lot, it's one of my favorite song's off Back In Black.
