Hey Rockers! It's twofer Tuesday! Twice the slice of Rock n' Roll clunkers!

If you are just joining us, we are counting down the 100 worst Rock songs of all time. If you are just joining us, here are some helpful links to get you right up to speed. The first 10. #90-81, #80-71, #70-61.

It's a 90 minute rock-block so, let's get this twofer Tuesday started!

60. The Wind Cries Mary, The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Oh, the wind cries alright...so do I when I am forced to listen to this crap


59. Janie's Got a Gun, Aerosmith
Audio torture...could this possibly suck more?

58. For Those About to Rock (We Salute You), AC/DC
Probably the worst example of formulaic hack known to mankind. Tortured and ripped-from-some-history-book-that-you-read-in-school-only-because-the-teacher(finally!)put-a-gun-to-your-head-hook+stupid guitar solo+a scream or two=album sales...at least in the '80's.

57. Hey Hey What Can I Do? Led Zeppelin
I have several suggestions for what you can do with this crap.

56. Born to Run, Bruce Springsteen
Run away! Run away!



55. We Built This City (on Rock and Roll), Jefferson Starship
And we wrote this song on crack.

54. Is This Love? Whitesnake
No. No it isn't.

53. Black, Pearl Jam
Pearl Jam- the cure for writers block on this list.

52. Bungle in the Jungle, Jethro Tull
Even Nazis don't deserve this. If this song saw more airplay, it would contend for top 10 easily.



51. Two Hearts, Phil Collins
Ear douche, please!

50. Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen
Bohemian Rhapsody occupies a special place on our list. Not only is it exactly halfway, but it was probably the most contentious amongst my friends Greg and Don, who helped me compose this list.  I actually like this song, but I just have to say- This is NOT opera! This is children playing at opera. Once the pretentiousness is suitably dispensed with, one can simply enjoy this goofy and unique song.



49. I Want to Know What Love is, Foreigner
I want to know when this song ends

48. Prison Sex, Tool
Well, that one writes itself, now doesn't it?

47. Big Log, Robert Plant
If I had to choose, between driving a Yugo or listening to this song, I would take the bullet.

46. The Final Countdown, Europe
Pop-Metal? What the hell is this? Besides crap, I mean.

45. (Everything I do) I do it for you, Bryan Adams
Is there anything worse than a sickly-sweet love song posing as Rock n' Roll?

44. Imagine, John Lennon
Imagine if we all lived in the real world.



43. Chop Suey, System of a Down
Part rap, part metal, part love song- all crap.

42. Enter Sandman, Metallica
Sell. Out. In order to appreciate the enormity of this travesty, it is probably necessary to have lived in the 80s and to have been a metal fan. After Cliff Burton's death (may he R.I.P.) and the mess that was Justice for All, the faithful waited eagerly for Metallica to get it all back together...they were rewarded with this colossal pile of stink.

41. Mr. Roboto, Styx
Styx had some good stuff, but what in the absolute hell were they thinking when they came up with this? Five and half minutes of nonsensical garbage...uhg.

As always...stay tuned for much more music fans! The best worst is yet to come....
