    As the title says, post your favourite songs from your most hated artists.

    Not only is Mike Posner the douchiest of douche bags. He is also among the least talented of the lot. He makes Pitbull look like a genius. So what could he possibly do? Fess up, of course. The line about doing drugs to impress some Swedish DJ who wears his cap back to front is just sooo sad.


    I really hate Britney Spears. I am sure I could ship more singles than her if I had her brand recognition. She want from being the world's least convincing virgin to being the world's least convincing femme fatale. That's quite an achievement.

    This song is fantastic, however. That weird pling plong reminds me of a music box my aunt gave me when I was little. Britney sounds genuinely depressed and fragile. The music video is great, too. I have always fantasised about being a burnt out, drugged up pop star. Corset, jacket and baseball cap seems like the perfect uniform. Stephen Dorff is terrifying as the boyfriend. He stars in two of my favourite movies. Sofia's Somewhere and Backbeat. Stu and Astrid forever.

    Love Stephen Dorff in Backbeat

    I am not a fan of Justin Bieber in any way, he just seems incredibly shallow and I couldn't actually name another song by him, but I love Love Yourself. I like the tune. I like that is was co-written by Ed Sheeran (though I'm not a big Sheeran fan either) and the lyric 'My mama don't like you and she likes everyone' is just universal and resonates with me.

    Backbeat <3

    This is really interesting. I actually hate Love Yourself. Bieber's breathy mumbling turns me off and I do not like the lyrics. I once took a girlfriend of mine to see my parents. She was really nervous, so I told her I did not care if they approved of her of not. Big mistake. That only made it worse :p It turned out well. My parents adored her.

    The only Bieber song I like is his first one. Baby.

    Baby. By Justin Bieber. Those four words make my heart sink :(

    I love the lyrics, it's the story of a bitter individual who's been used and abused and wants to hit back. He's trying to hide how much he really cares, and how much he's hurting and doing a really poor job. He even has to sink so low as to say 'even my mum hated you'! :D This girl has him wrapped around her finger and I love it. You just know he's wating for her to say the word and he'll be her pet again. Plus the tune does not suck.

    The only acceptable thing you can say to a partner meeting your parents is 'Don't worry hun, they be crazy' (it's usually true) :D

    I'll confess... I'm not saying these songs are great, because they aren't, but I got really obsessed with them for a while: Anaconda by Nicki Minaj (I know, I know! Don't judge me!), Bad Blood and Shake it Off by Taylor Swift and Formation by Beyoncé...

    My secret's out! :oops:

    Pffff! It's a great song. I know you know all the lyrics :p
    I don't know. I usually love this type of song, but all I am thinking is: I wanna hit up that girl.
    Or just don't introduce them at all. Nothing good can come from it.
    I actually quite like all of these people, though I think I would have chosen different songs. Dear Old Nicki is a masterpiece of a song! Style by Taylor <3

    It's when your parents like your partner better than they like you :eek:

    And it is such a turn off seeing your partner be a total suck up.

    You're thinking 'who is this person', they've showered, changed clothes, aren't swearing/smoking and have a sudden interest in how to grow runner beans :D

    Baby is actually catchy and fun because it's so dramatic! "And I was like Baby, baby, baby, Oh, like Baby, baby, baby, No!" LOL. Imagine me singing that with a hairbrush on my hand and making really theatrical faces!

    I don't know why, but I really really dislike John Legend. I mean, he seems like a really cool guy in real life and his wife is hilarious online, but I hate his music, until I saw him in La La Land, and I this song in particular...



    I love it, I think it's a great song. I know he's technically playing a character in a movie, but I love it. It made me love John Legend for once in my life. Literal torture for me is having to listen to 'All of Me'. I frickin' HATE that song!

    I don't hate U2, I don't really know many songs by them. The ones I do know are... meh. But I really, really love this song:

    All of Me is terrible. It is part of the reason I am happy I am not other people. I don't hate John Legend as a person, but he has this Captain Wholesome image that totally turns me off. That song was enjoyable enough, though. I haven't seen La La Land.

    U2 is the epitome of dad rock. Slightly cooler than Bon Jovi and Coldplay :p

    Here are two of my least favourite people in the world doing something that should not work. Lil' Wayne and Eminem are singing a song about bully using a sample from Haddaway's A Night at the Roxbury song. I hate Wayne's entire young money entourage, except Nicki, and I hate all of Dr. Dre's sycophants.

    Still, when Wayne says "Throw dirt one me and grow a wildflower" I am in. His lyrics are really fantastic. Eminem almost ruins it with his super sincere voice. Then he shows us how fast he can rap.

    I remember liking Overload the first Sugarbabes single!:p

    Green Day have done one or two good songs. Time of your Life, Basketcase...

    While I don't despise this band, I'm not a big fan of most of their stuff. However, I ♥ this song. Definitely one of my favorite love songs.
     
    WillowFromBuffy: Aaaaw! The Beach Boys are one of my favourite bands ever!

    I hate Madonna with a passion. To me she is a walking, rotting vagina. But this song is class.

    Ouch! :eek:

    Great choice of song. I love a couple of her other one's, too. Hung Up, Holiday and Sorry are quite good.

    Robbie you are the favourite artist of all my aunts. This one is quite good, though.
