The countdown continues as we hit the next patch of Rock n' Roll garbage!

Here we go Rockomaniacs! The continuation of our countdown of the very worst that Rock n' Roll has to offer.

First, a bit of housekeeping-

We will be counting down every Monday, Wednesday and Friday until we hit the big cajone kahuna, so notify your google calender app now. In case you missed last weeks edition, you can find the top 100-91 here, which includes the all important criteria for this list...

90. Free Fallin' Tom Petty
Here is another bunkum-ass song from a guy that I otherwise like like a lot. Why does this song get so much airplay, when Tom has so much other, far better stuff, to choose from?


89. Rock and Roll All Night, KISS
It is hard to take KISS seriously at all and thus they nearly didn't make this list, but this "Rock 'n Roll Anthem" made it, by virtue of it's stupidly simplistic and repetitious hook. Let me guess, it took about 30 seconds to write this claptrap?


88. Cherry Pie, Warrant
One hit wonder suckage.....


87. It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll), AC/DC
Another "Anthem". This one makes it to the list for it's hypocrisy(this hit came along very early and quickly for them), the annoying use of bagpipes and the latent sneer at other struggling bands, as well as the arrogance directed at their audience. Hmmm...Given all that, maybe it should have scored higher.


86. Pour Some Sugar on Me, Def Leppard
Oh Dear God! Please just stop!


85. Whole Lotta Love, Led Zeppelin
Led Zepp fans will have a rough time on this list.....their first suckage offering, comes along at #85


84. Big Ten Inch, Aerosmith
Sexual innuendo is to Rock n' Roll, what 'stache is to Fisher, nevertheless this is just over the top and mindless. Yep, it sucks.


83. Jump, Van Halen
The only offering from the original Van Halen line up. This is the point where David Lee Roth lost control of Eddie and the band degenerated into pop garbage.


82. [Everything by], Iron Maiden
In the 80's, every Metalhead, loved this band...why? I'll just put the entire band at spot #82, since all of their crap sounds exactly the same and it all sucks equally.


81. Fly Like an Eagle, Steve Miller Band
Another band that has some really good stuff, but this song sucks so bad.....what were they thinking? Nauseating, popish, heavy handed and taken far too seriously. This is true crappola. Also, it sucks that they suggest shooting kids who don't have any shoes- that's messed up.

There are few cases in which mere popularity should be considered a proper test of merit; but the case of song writing is, I think, one of the few.

So there we are Rock fans...it only gets worse from here!
