* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altamont_Free_Concert Altamont Free Concert]], AKA "Woodstock West." Music/TheRollingStones booked and headlined this show, which featured many of the big rock bands of '60s counterculture America... as well as four deaths, countless injuries, massive property damage, and an attempt on Mick Jagger's life. Among the worse decisions: co-organizers Music/TheGratefulDead paid members of Hell's Angels $500 USD worth of cold beer to stand guard--This resulted in, among other things, countless fights with the audience, a disastrous Music/JeffersonAirplane set (they knocked a bandmate out mid-show), and one of the aforementioned deaths. The Dead cancelled their performance mid-concert and flead out of fear. In contrast to the "peace and love" atmosphere of Woodstock, Altamont came to symbolize the death of TheSixties.

* While the entirety of the album ''Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven'' by Music/KidCudi can be spared (for right now, at least) since there are fans that defend the album, there are not even hardcore fans that can defend [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_7eofl08ZI "The Return of Chip Douglas (Demo)"]] for being on here in the first place. While most of the songs from that album can be considered by some to at least be SoBadItsGood, The Return of Chip Douglas just takes the issues that makes most of the songs there be in that range and just increases it tenfold between a repetitive acoustic guitar FourNoteSong (scrapes included), nasally vocals that also sound real whiny, laughable at best lyrics, and an ending where he's just more yelling incoherently than anything else (which one YouTube commenter best describes as Kid Cudi making wild animal noises).

* Did you ever wonder what one of the lowest rated songs from the now-defunct MP3.com was? Well [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlsXFrUvMFk this video]] has the answer right here called "Prit Stik (1987)"[[note:apparently there were ''two'' versions of this song, one of which was released in 1986, but no recording has been found of either that song or the album it originated from in the first place]] by... Prit Stik. Being disguised as an unreleased demo from Bjork during its heyday, Prit Stik open with the brilliant line of "I hate chess pieces because I keep stepping on them" before spiraling downhill from there between the continuously shrill screaming of Prit Stik by the band, a drum solo that somehow sounds very corrupted, a "guitar solo" that sounds more like one of the vocalist being mildly hurt under pitched-shifted samples, conversations between the members, and a couple of teases towards the listener saying "we aren't finished now" and "we're definitely finished now" when they clearly weren't at the time.

** In the early years of the Super Bowl, halftime was mainly a showcase for university marching bands and drill teams. That changed when Up With People, a '60s collective that formed to counter the anti-establishment views of the counterculture, performed four halftime shows in 1976, '80, '82, and '86. As [[http://deadspin.com/5980867/remembering-up-with-people-the-gay-quasi-cult-that-invented-the-super-bowl-halftime-show noted]] by ''Deadspin'', they pretty much invented the modern Super Bowl halftime show that truly came into its own in TheNineties... but they also brought with them their [[TastesLikeDiabetes hyper-saccharine]] sensibilities, which by TheEighties were seen as embarrassing. These days, their performances are still a punchline that often get named as being among the worst Super Bowl halftime shows in history.

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8z2jnOUrQY title screen music]] from the NES version of ''720°'' is a complete butchery of [[https://youtu.be/LVZu2U6RcGc?t=9m27s a much cooler tune]] from the original arcade version. The other tracks from the game (all three of them) are pretty poor in their own right, but at least they don't sound as horribly off-key as the title theme.

* While most will agree that {{Music/Rush}}'s song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMSFqXGZ5TQ "Time Stand Still"]] is one of their best ever songs, the video, on the other hand, has next to no supporters because of how awful it is. The video shows the band and guest singer Aimee Mann flying around in mid-air through some studio and over some lazy chroma-keyed backgrounds, with [[TheyJustDidntCare next to no effort put into it looking at least mildly effective]]. The video hasn't shown up on any one of their DVD releases and the band remains unusually quiet about it, and the video continues to top "worst music videos ever" lists today.

\n* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjBOcNZEq9s "All About That Bonfire]]. It's supposed to be a mashup between All About That Bass and Bonfire, but the problem s that the atrist doen't actually combine them together and instead just replaces the word "bass" with "bonfire" and just randomly switch the music to the other song.

* ''[[CompilationRerelease Sega Smash Pack Volume 1]]'' for the Dreamcast is an infamous PortingDisaster, and that's due to it's soundtrack not being emulated properly. The music in the included Genesis games [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jucChh8Hw8o sounds like a Master System]] at it's best and at it's worst, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8d89_tmtDY sounds like]] [[EpicFail an Atari 2600]], while ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog1'' sounded [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfkGtyAYqI4 worse than Sonic Genesis GBA]]. This was the main reason why Gamespot gave it a 4 out of 10.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjeMDvCdrtc This band]] horribly butchers "The Final Countdown". The keyboardist has the completely wrong sound on his synth and misses several notes, completely ruining the song's most iconic part, and the singer has absolutely no energy or passion ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITKWhfpgHpE&nohtml5=False the original singer's reaction says everything!]]).
