** Tropers/MysticEclectic: While the PhilCollins-led Genesis has always had its ups and downs, the major dethroning moment was their 1997 album ''Calling All Stations.'' This was a slow, derivative, plodding shell of an album where Mike Rutherford and Music/TonyBanks, going it without Phil, had plucked Ray Wilson, formerly of Stiltskin, and a few session players to make one of the most [[SoBadItsHorrible critically savaged albums of]] TheNineties. While mainly inoffensive, the whole album sounds like a dreary mess of jam sessions that exemplify the worst of prog rock and a [[TheBandMinusTheFace band minus the face.]] [[DownerEnding A truly shameful effort that may unfortunately be the band's final studio album,]] provided the [[DevelopmentHell many rumored reunions]] never happen.

* Tropers/CabbitGirlEmi: I'm not even a fan of Mike and the Mechanics, but Paul Carrack's "Don't Shed a Tear" is easily one of the worst songs ever, or at least lyrically. The song involves him dumping his girlfriend, but the first verse makes it sound absolutely petty. He comments on how she's like a candy store making his pants tight or something among those lines. It makes him sound very hypocritical and that he only cares about getting his rocks off rather than actual love. Disgusting.

* Tropers/KenyaStarflight: I love Music/OwlCity to death, but did the song "Alligator Sky" really need [[AWildRapperAppears the random rap solo in the middle?]] It's completely at odds with the nature of the song and of Owl City's music as a whole, and spoils the listening experience. Thank goodness there's a non-rap version of the song available as well.

## The main character says that God sent the little boy to teach him what Christmas is all about. So a poor boy's mother suffers for a long time before finally dying at Christmas of all times, but God is fine with that because some random guy learned a lesson.

*Tropers/MewLettuceRush: P!nk's song "Please Dont't Leave Me" was a major DMOS once I came to the realization that it was basically glorified DomesticAbuse from the perpetrator no less! ( the line [[DudeNotFunny "you're my perfect little punching bag"]] makes me throw up in my mouth now in particular) [[Main/DoubleStandard If the song were sung by a male it would have never become popular much less been made]] While she is generally a talented artist with some truly great songs, I don't ever want to listen to this one again.

* Tropers/MathsAngelicVersion: I've enjoyed the ''Franchise/EvilliousChronicles'' story [[TropeEnjoymentLoophole in spite of my general dislike for dark works and complicated plots]]. However, the end of "Wooden Girl ~Thousand Year Wiegenlied~" triggered the long overdue onset of DarknessInducedAudienceApathy and AngstAversion. It starts off cute and heartwarming: Michaela is a forest spirit who befriends an outcast, Clarith. Michaela is turned human and enjoys spending time with Clarith. Shortly afterwards, disaster strikes, and Michaela is killed despite Clarith's attempt at keeping her safe. This is not too bad out of context. The disaster isn't a DiabolusExMachina, and there's no obvious time at which Michaela is [[WhatAnIdiot doomed by idiotic decisions]]. However, it was the last straw. It made me realize that if mothy creates something beautiful, he'll just cruelly destroy it in no time. The series will just be a lot of suffering and crushed hopes, so what is the point of caring about anything that happens in it? And if there is something to care about, why should I get invested in it when it will just make me sad in the end? I still enjoy the songs, though.

* Tropers/MathsAngelicVersion: "The Christmas Shoes" could have been a sweet, if sentimental song about a guy who learns the value of selflessness by helping a poor boy. The main character stands in a line and sees the poor boy in front of him trying to buy a pair of shoes for his mother. The [=DMoS=] is when it turns out that the boy's mother has "been sick for quite a while" and has very little time left, which means that she might not even make it through that day. This turns what could have been a cute song into something that's just nasty:
## The boy emphasizes that his mother will look beautiful in the shoes, because apparently beauty is important to a poor dying mother. He talks about her looking good for Jesus, but I'm pretty sure Jesus isn't a guy who'd care about someone's lack of pretty shoes - especially not when that someone has perfectly valid reasons for not having any!
## The SkewedPriorities. First, the boy is poor, and he wastes what little money he has on shoes his family doesn't need. Second, the mother has very little time left, and he wastes time buying shoes instead of spending time with her?! Third, the protagonist sees nothing wrong with this, and seemingly doesn't care what happens to the boy after his mother passes away.

any! Another problem with this is that a dying person usually isn't a pretty sight anyway, and a pair of shoes won't do much to help.

Second, the his mother has very little time left, and he wastes time buying shoes instead of spending time with her?! Third, the protagonist sees nothing wrong with this, and this. Even if the little boy doesn't understand that what he's trying to do is stupid, the protagonist - a grown man - should gently point it out.

* Tropers/HeavyMetalSnail: ''Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven'' will probably go down in history as the nadir of Kid Cudi's long fall from grace. Between the amateurish and dull instrumentation, painfully bad singing, cringeworthy lyrics and unnecessary length, it easily solidifies itself as one of the worst releases from a mainstream artist in a long time. However, the absolute worst moment comes not from the aforementioned problems but rather from the Beavis and Butthead skit that comes at the end of the song "Men in the Night." Not only does it go on far too long and is not that funny to boot, the worst aspect of it is that most of the dialogue is talking about how "cool" the song was and praising both Kid Cudi and the album. This would be bad even on a decent album but on an album as bad as this, it becomes especially irritating because after listening to some awful music, you have annoying characters talk about how great it is. Even worse, this is repeated several times throughout the album. It comes across as extremely masturbatory and self-congratulating, especially in an album as wretched as this.
