The Grammy’s are mostly an awful exercise in big record labels congratulating themselves on which records sold the most units. Sure, so great songs get recognized, because not all top-selling records are terrible. Amy Winehouse won Song of the Year for “Rehab”, which was very possibly the best song in her given year. Adele got recognized big time for her work last year, and deservedly so. But, it seems that for every good song/artist that is recognized, there are two stinkers that pop up. Today, we recognize the worst of the these stinkers in the “Song of the Year” category. Please note that for the most part we just picked the worst songs, without taking much historical context into account, and as always feel free to tell us where we went wrong (or maybe right for once?). Enjoy!
10. “Beautiful Day” – U2
Champagne wishes and caviar dreams for these four Dublin douchebags. We get it Bono. You’re life is awesome, and you’re not gonna waste a moment of it, and you will never die, and we are gonna have to be inundated with your b.s. forever. We get it.
