You have the astonishing – albeit severely limited – power to erase one song from history


#1

But which?

see ya.


#2

That’s one of the few good ones.


#3

Don’t Stop Me Now by Queen. I don’t care what the bootcut jeans and Formula One crowd adopt instead but it’ll be better than this.


#4

There are a few pop songs that are actually evil in their intent, but I have removed them from my brain. I think I’ll choose this one because the writer has admitted it’s meaningless.



#5

come on


#6

Fairytale of New York

Not the worst song ever but so ubiquitous and evitable all December long that those opening bars make me feel tired each time they start. And I think I have to fucking sit through this again now.

Would be amazing to go though a Christmas without it. See also: All other Christmas songs

#8

Radio fucking Gaga


#9

Don’t Stop Believing - Journey :mask: :mask: :mask:


#10

God save the queen

The national anthem one not the sex pistols one


#11

Pure Shores by All Saints.

Think it was massively overplayed on the radio during my finals and I just can’t bear it.


#12

Never got the hate for that 4 Non Blondes song. But then, most of the songs mentioned so far are lovely. It takes all sorts and all that.

I was going to say something like Scouting For Girls or Kate Nash or The Wombats, but I think instead I’ll erase Sweet Home Alabama.

It would have a wonderful knock-on effect. Erase Sweet Home Alabama, and suddenly:

  • Neil Young’s Southern Man isn’t undermined by the devastating counter argument that “the skies are so blue”
  • Kid Rock doesn’t release that even worse song that samples it
  • The worst bits from 8 Mile and Con Air cease to exist
  • Less Confederate imagery on those channels that play classic rock videos all day

Win, win, win, win.


#13

I’d erase that one with the amen break, just to see what happens


#14

Bohemian Rhapsody

Come on guys, if we all chip in we can eradicate the entire Queen discography here.


#15

Unexpected assault on the Queen back catalogue happening here. hovers over button to remove everyone’s powers


#16

It’s a fucken tune mate


#17

Extremely well made case


#18

Haha xylophone likes queen get him!


#19

Sounds like a cryptic crossword clue


#20

Can we Queen fans put together an argument that it’s Problematic to dislike them?
