Magazine Rates Top 50 Worst Hit Songs

Just because a song was a hit doesn't mean it was any good.

At least that's the thought behind Blender magazine's list of the top 50 worst songs that became big hits.

The magazine's choices for "The 50 Worst Songs Ever" is on newsstands today in New York and Los Angeles, and is out nationwide on April 27.

At the top of the list was "We Built This City," by Jefferson Starship.

"It purports to be anti-commercial, but reeks of '80s corporate-rock commercialism," Blender Editor Craig Marks told USA Today. "It's a real reflection of what practically killed rock music in the '80s."

The No. 2 song is Billy Ray Cyrus' "Achy Breaky Heart," followed by Wang Chung's "Everybody Have Fun Tonight." "Rollin'" by Limp Bizkit ranks fourth, followed by "Ice Ice Baby," by Vanilla Ice.

Finishing off the top 10 worst songs ever are Huey Lewis and the News with "The Heart of Rock-and-Roll," "Don't Worry, Be Happy" by Bobby McFerrin, Eddie Murphy's "Party All the Time," "American Life" by Madonna, and "Ebony and Ivory" by Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder.

Hits lower down on the list include "I'm Too Sexy" by Right Said Fred. Classic artists like the Beatles made the list for "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" and R.E.M. was on it for "Shiny Happy People."
