Brink Lindsey wants to know what the worst song of all time is. So much bad music, so many possibilities... I nominated "Hole In My Soul" by Aerosmith, a song so dire it had to rip off REO Speedwagon's "Keep On Loving You" for its opening riff, cos I had to narrow it down, but there were so many more I could've named. I'll only say, however, that a few other suggestions in the list are plain damn ignorant and whoever said the whole period 1965-75 should be blotted out except for "Genesis, King Crimson, David Bowie, Pink Floyd [and] Elvis" needs an almighty smack. Not that those folks did bad things back then, but to suggest that nothing else good came from that time is astonishingly stupid.
