(1) Day of BAD: 2010

Overall, 2010 was a good year for music, but it wasn’t perfect. Here’s what made me wish I was deaf this year (and since crap is crap, there’s no need to rank each one, so they’re in alphabetical order).
Artists For Haiti – We Are The World 25 For Haiti
I can buy this song to help Haiti, or I can give my money directly to charities like the Red Cross, and a bunch of overrated musicians/artists/celebrities/wash-ups (Kanye, Jamie Foxx, Jonas Bros, Adam Levine, Pink, Fonzworth Bentley, Benji & Joel Madden…to name just a few) won’t get the tax right off?
Godsmack – Cryin’ Like A Bitch!!
I shouldn’t have to explain why any song by this band is on a list like this, but the song title and the additional exclamation mark seal the deal.
Katy Perry – California Girls (ft. Snoop Dogg)
The so-called 2010 song of Summer is one of the worst songs i’ve heard in the last ten years (if not more). Hey Katy, next time you follow up a classic song like the Beach Boys’ California Girls, with a version of your own, make sure it isn’t garbage. And shame on you too Snoop…oh how the mighty have fallen.
Ke$ha – Cannibal (entire album)
This talentless hack made our ears bleed last year with one of 2009’s worst (Animal) and unfortunately, that didn’t slow her down. 2010 was cursed with yet another full-length from Ke-Dollar-Ha.
Kings of Leon – Come Around Sundown (entire album)
According to iTunes: “Capitalizing on the stripped- and slimmed-down approach of Only By the Night, Kings of Leon come back with another lean and mean collection of serious rock.” In other words, Kings of Leon released another album full of d-bag anthems this year. If you’re in need of good rock, stick to the likes of Band of Horses, The Black Keys, Cold War Kids, The Dead Weather, and/or Titus Andronicus.
Lil Wayne – Rebirth
(entire album, but especially I’m So Over You ft. Shanell)

Lil Wayne is one of the most overrated hip hop artists out there today and his “alternative rock” album, Rebirth, takes shitty music to a whole new level.

Ludacris – My Chick Bad (feat. Nicki Minaj)
I hate to say this, but Ludacris should stick to acting.
M.I.A. – /\/\/\Y/\ aka MAYA
(entire album, except for XXXO, i can tolerate that song)
You can only ride Paper Planes for so long.
Weezer – Hurley
(entire album, but especially Where’s My Sex?)
I was once a big Weezer fan, so this saddens me quite a bit, but River’s and the gang haven’t put out a decent song since Maladroit (2002), and even that’s pushing it.
Willow Smith – I Whip My Hair
I hate to say this (again), but Willow should stick to acting.
