Well, we've come a long way on our list, but we still have a long way to go. Today's edition dials back a bit on real heavyweights, but chances are you have heard all of these songs at one time or another. Sorry about that.

In fact, I really must apologize for filling your day with these horrible, horrible ditties. But just in case you are a grad student writing a term paper entitled "Suckage vs Quantum Mechanics in Vortexual Nutrino Fields", I figure this just may help. I am all about higher education. Grad students- you may want to reference the previous articles in this series, especially part one, which bears the all important judging criteria. Then parts two and three. Don't forget to footnote.

70. My Boyfriends Back, The Angels
Prototrash. A precursor to Jerry Springer if there ever was one.


69. Even Flow, Pearl Jam
After originally promising a friend that this wouldn't make the list, I changed my mind. The suck exuding from this song left me with no choice.


68. Night Moves, Bob Seger
Apparently, Bob Seger was born at 40 years of age and thus spends all of his time longing for the youth he never had.

67. Mr. Saturday Night Special, Lynyrd Skynyrd
A prime example of tendentious, over reach. This hacked garbage is particularly hard to fathom from the band that gave us "Simple Man" and "Sweet Home, Alabama"


66. T.N.T, AC/DC
These guys had a lot of songs, that basically said "I am a bad ass, son of a bitch". Ok, I get the relative transposition. So?


65. Sister Christian, Night Ranger
Besides sucking musically...ok, maybe that is the only thing.


64. Wind of Change, The Scorpions
Kidnapping the lyrics of "Imagine" to celebrate the fall of Communism produces one of many WTF? moments in Rock n' Roll history


63. Livin' on a Prayer, Bon Jovi
You've heard it...you know it sucks.


62. Magic Man, Heart
The anthem of upstart whores everywhere.


61. You Better, You Bet, The Who
Dreary lyrics, stunted chords. A nerve rattling example of excrement. The Who, basically should have made one song and one song only, "Won't Get Fooled Again".


The next installment is coming soon, music fans! Stay tuned...
