As voted by the readers of NME


There’s nothing like the crushing disappointment of putting on your headphones to listen to your favorite band’s new single, only to be met with something that sounds (to you) like the music equivalent of a wasp stuck in a lampshade. You basically go through the five stages of grief for your once beloved fave band, hate them for a little bit, and then they’ll put out another total banger which will redeem their place in your heart.

But what are these rotten eggs that your golden geese are putting out? We asked NME readers to let us know – and here’s what you said: these are the songs you hate by bands you love. 

Oasis – ‘Wonderwall’

Oosh – a bold choice to be sure. It may have gone triple platinum here in the UK and have millions of streams on Spotify. Hell, even Alex James from Blur said he wishes he’d written it; but a lot of NME readers couldn’t get on the ‘Wonderwall’ hype.

Björk – Bachelorette

Regardless of the mad video (below), for some, this was the song they hated by their beloved Björk.

Radiohead – ‘Creep’

While for some it was ‘High and Dry’ that’s the rotten apple in the orchard of excellent songs by Radiohead, it was ‘Creep’ that was resoundingly not a favorite.

Arcade Fire – ‘Chemistry’

There wasn’t a lot of love for Arcade Fire’s latest record ‘Everything Now’, especially the messy brass “Oom Pah Pahs” of ‘Chemistry’.

Blondie – ‘The Tide is High’

Blondie’s cover of The Paragons’ tune may have soared to Number One in the US and the UK, but some just can’t get behind their reggae-inflected rendition of ‘The Tide is High’.
