* Music/{{ABC}} is usually good about this one…
** until we get to “The Look of Love”…
** or “When Smokey Siiiiiiiinnnnnnngggggggsss…”
* [[Music/TheAcademyIs The Academy Is...]]:
** "About a Girl"
* [[Music/{{ACDC}} AC/DC's]] songs are easy to earworm, thanks to their repeating choruses. In their own words, they've been doing the same song for the whole of their career. So the earworms can build up on each other. (Of course, due to the performers' [[WhatTheHellIsThatAccent bizarre Australian/British/American accents]], it can be hard to make out many of the words unless you're a committed fan.)
