What makes a song considered to be included in the list of "the worst"? A piece of music needs to have been notable, popular, or memorable to be deemed the "worst ever", or it would be unlikely to top all-time public polls a few years after it was released. As such, a piece usually needs to have had a high-profile at the time of its release, such as an unexpected hit that was highly disliked outside of its fanbase, albums with poor material or songs that are most disappointing by artists. Scholarly accounts of the "worst music ever" are rare. Most polls or critical lists are light-hearted in nature, especially in pop music. Magazines reflect the preferences of their readers, and if polls are influenced by too small a group of readers or critics, they provide unreliable results. Most "worst ever" lists do not aim to take into account all music ever created, but are limited to certain time periods, styles of music, and geographical areas. Furthermore, individual tastes can vary widely, to the point where very little consensus on a worst song can be achieved; the winning song in a CNN e-mail poll received less than 5 percent of the total votes cast. You might agree or not with the items listed on "Not in Hall of Fame" - www.notinhalloffame.com - 100 Worst Songs of Modern Pop Culture: I guess that the only "problem" with many of those "blacklisted" songs is some stupid lyrics which might annoy people. I must confess that I don't care much about how deep or intellectual might be the lyrics of a song. I even realized that some of the song listed were not in my discography and found them interesting and worth enough to download. So, I feel it will be fun to browse this webpage: http://www.notinhalloffame.com/rock-and-roll/100-worst-songs-of-modern-pop-culture Definitively it's well documented "worst..." listings. For each song you have the comment of the poster, the link to the YouTube video and comments of registered followers of the website. You even can vote without signing in, selecting if you agree or not with the classification.
