Agadoo Black Lace (1984) pic­tured York­shire band's hol­i­day hit black­listed by the BBC be­cause it wasn't ‘cred­i­ble'. Voted worst song ever in a Q Mag­a­zine poll in 2003 and ranked worst song in his­tory in The Guardian in 2009 Chi­nese Food Ali­son Gold (2013) Sec­ond most hated song of the in­ter­net age - from the same people be­hind ‘Fri­day’ (see be­low). ‘It could be the most an­noy­ing song ever,’ said the Los Angeles Times. ‘It's hard to imag­ine mu­sic sink­ing any lower than this,’ said the New York Post. Fri­day Re­becca Black (2011) The most hated song of the in­ter­net age - whether for the auto-tuned per­for­mance, ter­ri­ble lyrics or dread­ful video which once had over 3 mil­lion ‘dis­likes’ on Youtube, ac­count­ing for 87% of its to­tal rat­ings. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da The Bea­tles (1968) Not their finest mo­ment. Voted worst song of all time in an on­line poll com­mis­sioned by Mars in 2004. John Len­non ap­par­ently loathed it. The Cheeky Song (Touch My Bum) The Cheeky Girls (2002) Voted worst pop record in a Chan­nel 4 poll in 2004, de­spite sell­ing al­most a mil­lion. No ac­count­ing for taste then. The Mil­len­nium Prayer Cliff Richard (1999) This song set the words of the Lord's Prayer to the tune of ‘Auld Lang Syne’ and - de­spite many ra­dio sta­tions re­fus­ing to play it - reached num­ber one. A 2004 VH1 poll la­belled it worst No. 1 record of all time. It also reached No. 2 in a sim­i­lar poll run by Chan­nel 4. Who Let The Dogs Out? Baha Men (2000) The 4th big­gest sell­ing sin­gle of 2000 in the UK, but Spinnner's ‘worst song ever’ in 2008, and third in Rolling Stone's 20 most an­noy­ing songs poll.
