* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tk4gRBgDQw Breaker one-nine, this here's Rubber Duck...]] Whether or not CW McCall was real or not, "Convoy" is a legendary earworm.
* {{Mika}}, Mika, where to begin with Mika?
** * Most of Mika's songs, Grace Kelly, Big Girls, and We Are Golden.
** ESPECIALLY the song Love Today. "Everybody's gonna love today, love today, love today! Everybody's gonna love today... Any way you want to any way you've got to love love ME! Love love ME! love LOVE!"
** "Relax, take it eeeeaaaaaasy..."
** "I could be brown / I could be blue / I could be violet sky / I could be hurtful / I could be purple / I can be anything you like / Gotta be green / Gotta be mean / Got to be everything more / Why don't you like me? / Why don't you like me? / WHY DON'T YOU WALK OUT THE DOOR?!"
** "Teenage dreams in a teenage circus / Running around like a clown on purpose..."
*** "We are not what you think we are / We are golden, we are golden / [[PunctuatedForEmphasis WE! ARE! NOT! WHAT! YOU! THINK! WE ARE!]] / WE ARE GOLDEN! WE ARE GOLDEN!"
** "If you're suckin' too hard on a lollipop, then love's gonna get you down / If you're suckin' too hard on a lollipop, then love's gonna get you down / Say love, say love, say love's gonna get you down / Say love, say love, say love's gonna get you down!"
** All Mika albums, ''Life in Cartoon Motion'', ''The Boy Who Knew Too Much'' and "The Origin of Love", are essentially two hour-long EarWorms.
** "Elle me dit danse! Elle me dit danse danse danse! Elle me dit danse! Elle me dit danse danse danse!"
** "We are young! We are strong! We're not looking for where we belong!"
*** You still find yourself singing along to it even when you don't understand what he's saying.
* [[Music/DonMcLean "Bye bye, Miss American Pie / Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry / and good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye / singing 'this will be the day that I die'"...]]
* NickiMinaj:
** Much oh "Your Love's" chrous just consists of "Your love, your love yeah..."
** I'M THE BEST BITCH DOIN IT DOIN IT
** BOOM BADOOM BOOM BOOM BADOOM BOOM WE GOT DAT SUPER BASS!!!!!
** You a stupid hoe. You a you a stupid hoe.
** STAR SHIPS!! ARE MEANT TO FLYYYYYYY!!!!
* Michael Mitchell: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnZlAOSEmYQ I've got Canada in my pocket, a little bit of historyeeeeeeee. A penny and a nickel and a quarter and a dime mean a lot to you and meeeee.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSNSTerj2Kc Wheeeeeeere's your maaaaama gone? (Where's your mama gone?) Faaaaaar faaaar awaaaaaaayyy...Last night I heard my mama singin' a song, ooohh-weeeee, CHIRPY CHIRPY CHEEP CHEEP!]] To make matters worse, I always unconsciously mash it up with "The Loco-Motion."
* Mistabishi - "Printer Jam". Built around the screeching sound of a dot-matrix printer.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnjoIkq4y7s Fantastic Cat]] by Takako Minekawa. The sheer weirdness, and pidgin English lyrics make it even more so.
* {{Madonna}}:
** "Material Girl".
** Most of her songs, actually. "Ray of Light" in particular, since it's been even in Windows XP commercials ("and I feel, like I just got home, and I feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel...")
** Like a virgin, touched for the very first time.
** No love for "Vogue?"
* Of all things, Magma
--> [[OrchestralBombing Hortz fur dehn Štëkëhn Wešt]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ImiqaXBMkM Marvin, I love you! Marvin, I love you! Remember, I'm programmed for yoooou!]] Oh my god, I think [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Marvin's]] [[TheWoobie woobie-ness]] just shot through the roof...
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owr2sbcUHwA Marvin, Metal Man]]'', as well. For some reason, the quietness and lack of any actual melody just makes it more catchy.
* Bruno Mars, anyone?
** When I see your face there's not a thing that I would change, 'cause you're amazing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjhCEhWiKXk just the way you are]]...
** "I'd catch a grenade for you... (yeah, yeah)"

* [[DeanMartin WHEN THE MOON HITS YOUR EYE, LIKE A BIG PIZZA PIE, THAT'S AMORE…]]
* Ricky Martin:
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BkYKwHLXiU "The Cup of Life"]]: "HERE WE GO! ALLEZ-ALLEZ-ALLEZ! GO GO GO! ALLEZ-ALLEZ-ALLEZ!"
** "Upside, inside-out! She's livin' la vida loca!" Apparently, that song being an ear worm is why Rolling Stone considered it annoying.
*** Not when [[{{Shrek}} Antonio Banderas is singing it]]. Still catchy, though.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VziXkAgdNL4 UN, DOS, TRES! Un pasito bailante María!]] (in Brazil, where it was a soap opera opening theme, it's even worse of an ear worm)
* 1 word: Bang bang bang. (Uno dos tres, activate ear worm.)
* Despite Stephen Colbert's rants, Mastgrr went ahead and remixed his interview with Lawrence Lessig to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fn5PjvMqMhM some great dance beats.]]
** THE HILLSSSSSSSSS ARE ALIVEEEEEE...
* A LOT of Mastodon songs file under this.
** "WHITE! WHALE! HOLY! GRAIL!"
** "Falling from grace, cause I've been away too long..."
** "HEY! HO! LET'S FUCKING GO! HEY! HO! LET'S GET UP AND ROCK & ROLL!"
* Metro Station:
** "Control": "I'm coming down, bring me up, take it off, let's just touch...I'M COMING DOWN, BRING ME UP..."
** Shake It also qualifies.
*** Shake shake, shake shake-ah-shake it! It loops in my head over, and over, and over, and over again...
** And I'd swim the ocean for you/Ocean for you/WHOAOAOAOA OH KELSEY
* The Mighty Mighty Bosstones gave us "The Impression that I Get.", an ear worm which, for me, is triggered BY other Ear Worms.
** The last hurrah, nah! I'd do it again! The Rascal King behind the bars or the one in front of them...
* Mirah
** But you don't want me any more, how can it be? Look what you've done to me! Oh, oh!
* Malice Mizer, believe it or not, has turned out a few of these. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mo4qSy-jQ4 Illuminati]] comes to mind. (I'm linking to an amv because the PV for it is ''{{Nightmare Fuel}}''.) Just ''try'' to get that carnival-style organ bit out of your head.
** I once looked at the top played list on my iPod and was actually surprised that Illuminati occupied the top slot. I was not surprised, however, that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F143kJea2tw Beast of Blood]] (the first song anyone ever hears by them anymore) occupied the second place slot.
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E42C7zzrU70 Heaven Knows]]" by NanaMizuki. "(Heaven knoooowwws) itsuka negai (Heaven knoooooows) kanau youni inoru kantan na koto janai itsumo soredemo."
* Manfred Mann:
** "Do Wah Diddy Diddy"
** Don't forget his covers of BruceSpringsteen's "Blinded by the Light" and BobDylan's "Quinn the Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)"
* Barry Manilow:
** "Copacabana"
*** Among my friends, "Copacabana" is famed as the one thing that will get an earworm *out* of your head without getting stuck itself.
*** "At the Star Wars! Star Wars Cantina! The weirdest creatures you've ever seen-a!"
** "Oh, Mandy, oh, you came and you gave without taking, and I sent you away! Oh, Mandy, oh, you kissed me and stopped me from shaking, and I need you today..."
** Parts of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIcqUokPiTw Looks Like We Made It]]" were stuck in my head off and on from when I was around 5 until I found out who wrote it. in 9th grade.
* MaximumTheHormone:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3_qZg6EPDk CHU CHU LOVELY MUNI MUNI MURA MURA PURIN PURIN BORO NURURURERORERO!]]
*** One of the dirtiest sing-alongs you'll ever sing in a foreign language.
** Their songs seem to be based around crazy riffs, metal shrieks, and catchy choruses that may or may not be sung. It's probably easier to list songs that aren't earworms. "F", their tribute to DragonBall villain Frieza, is worth mentioning.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTtS-Sntjho "Benjo Sandal Dance"]]
** "Policeman Benz," "Bikini Sports Ponchin," and "My Girl"
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jGX5whtyfU "Zetsubou Billy"]] ''KIRA! WE ARE THE '''KIRA!''' MY NAME IS KIRA! EVEN YOU'RE KIRA! DOI!''
* If you have heard PaulMcCartney's hits when they were hits, they may sneak back into your brain every so often. [[Tropers.AnonymousMcCartneyfan I once got "Arrow Through Me"(!) as an Ear Worm]]. And enjoyed it.
-->"Ooh, baby, you couldn't have done a worse thing to me\\
If you had taken an arrow and drove it right through me\\
Oooooh..."
** "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" is a more classic [=McCartney=] example: "''Haaaaands''/ Across the water! (water) / Heeeeeads / Across the sky!"
** "You think that people would've had enough of {{silly love songs}}/ But I look around me and I see/ It isn't so..."
** "Take it away/ Wanna hear you play/ Till the lights go down..."
** "Everybody's gonna dance tonight..."
** "Band on the run..."
** "Oh Mull of Kintyre / Oh mist rolling in from, the sea..."
** "Simply having a wonderful Christmastime..." This one has gotten stuck in my head ''out of season''.
** I've always had trouble with "We All Stand Together" especially when my dear friend had it as a ring tone.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gWvBXS2t4A "Say, say, say, what you waaaant, but doooon't plaaaay gaaaames with my affeeection..." ]]
** "Woah woah woah woah/Woah woah woah woah/ My love does it good..."
** "Ah mater/Want Jet to always love me..."
** "Oh, no one ever left alive in 1985 will ever do..."
* So, so many of {{McFly}}'s songs:
** [[http://youtu.be/h8wcYrqIzhg Doo doo doodoo doooo DOO!]]
** [[http://youtu.be/A1_Lo8tKqXQ I THINK I'M GONNA LOSE IT LOSE IT LOSE IT]]
** [[http://youtu.be/b7Fi02n6_bw Here's another song for the raaaaadiooooo!]]
** [[http://youtu.be/fzOawjh9rx8 (LIES) The devil has his eye on you girl (LIES) When you start talkin' I'll start walkin' LIES LIES LIES]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_K2ecZwt8E You'll never gonna get her, never gonna get that girl]]
* The [=McCoys=]: ''HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANG ON SLOOPY, SLOOPY HANG ON!''
* TimMcGraw offers a very catchy chorus in two of his songs:
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Shv82kPLgQ Last Dollar (Fly Away)]]": "One, two, three, like a bird I sing / 'Cause you've given me the most beautiful set of wings..." It helps that the song starts out cold with the chorus.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gAnSPp54L4 Felt Good on My Lips]]": "Ooh ooh ooh ah, wanna go crazy / You can go crazy too". Who says arena-rock choruses don't work in country music?
* Pick any MeatLoaf song:
** For example: ''LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL I'LL BE GONE WHEN THE MORNING CALLS!''.
** Anything by Steinman. Bonus points since these songs cannot be sung softly. I was once howling "IIIIII WANT MY MONEY BACK! Life is a lemon" while walking down the street.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PN_YjM4V4fc Let me sleep on it, baby baby let me sleep on it!]]
** Several songs from Hang Cool Teddy Bear. Running Away From Me has one of the catchiest choruses on that album.
* Music/{{Megadeth}}:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KDO_yCYcuU "Peace Sells"]]. I finished up a RockBand session with my friends, and discovered that the whole group still had the opening bassline stuck in their heads. ''"Dun-dundun dun dun dun dun dundun..."''
** It might not be their best effort but the damn song sticks deep into your head giving you [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R55Qxwwr9pw Insomnia-nia-nia-nia-nia]].
** "Just like the Pied Piper, led rats through the streets, we dance like marionettes, swaying to the Symphony...of Destruction!"
** "Hello me, it's me again"
** "CRUSH 'EM!"
** "And still we try to pretend, you'll always be there in the end.The best advice that I can lend. Don't ever turn your back my friend."
* Dahler Mehndi:
** "Tunak Tunak Tun". Not to mention the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bAN7Ts0xBo crazy dance]] that goes with it!
** Scratch that, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RyrkamJNro anything]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRX1fyshW3c by]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTYxInqdOE4 Dahler]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vx8twNmUaKY Mehndi.]]
** While we're in MemeticMutation crazy indians, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxVCFGrNHWc Indian George Michael]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MdpaoBbK8c Indian Michael Jackson]]".
* Melon Kinenbi's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6eewIvzLL8 This is Unmei]] is one helluvan earworm, especially around the Jan Jan Ja-AAAAAAH! It's stuck in my head now!
* Gimme Sympathy by Metric has lived in my head for days, and it's my most played song on iTunes.
* Men At Work:
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6oAFlPLGA8 Can't you see that it's late at night? I'm very tired, and I'm not feeling right.]]
** "Land Down Under": So catchy that it actually drove up sales of Vegemite when it first came out.
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lcu7OCIqlqE I can't get to sleep/I think about the implications...]]
** Up the road..., up to school you go..
* Music/{{Metallica}}:
** "Seek and Destroy". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUAdgt5Glk0 a LOT of ear worm potential]], even before the lyrics start.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkN9QWbQzvs GIMME FUEL! GIMME FIRE! GIMME THAT WHICH I DESIRE!!!]]
** EXIT LIGHT! ENTER NIGHT!
** BETTER THAN YOOOOOUUUUU... better than yoooouuuu... BETTER THAN YOOOOUUUUUUU!!! MUCH BETTER!!!
** NEVER FREE, NEVER ME, SO I DUB THEE UNFORGIVEN!
** WHEN IT COMES TO BE THAT THE SOOTHING LIGHT AT THE END OF YOUR TUNNEL WAS JUST A FREIGHT TRAIN COMING YOUR WAY!
** BOW DOWN TO THE PHANTOM LLLLOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRDDD!!!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnNN2ZH7uZs Anywhere I roam, where I lay my head is home...]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5UWNP5o7iQ FRANTIC TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK]] [[MemeticMutation TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK...]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ovgu1X2sgNU The Low Man's Lyric]]. [[{{Wangst}} Depressing?]] [[ThereAreNoTherapists Makes you suspect Hetfield needs a shrink?]] Yup. One sings it in on rainy nights anyway.
** "MASTER OF PUPPETS I'M PULLING YOUR STRINGS!"
** "FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS, TIME MARCHES ON!"
*** The [[EpicRiff riff]] is even catchier.
** "FLASH BEFORE MY EYES, NOW IT'S TIME TO DIE!"
** "MUSHA RAIN DUM A DOO DUM A DA! WHACK FOR MY DADDY, OH!"
** "HERE I AM, ON THE ROAD AGAIN!"
** "THEN IT'S TIME I DISAPPEAR! HA!"
** "WAITING FOR THE ONE, THE DAY THAT NEVER COMES!"
** "CYANIDE, LIVING DEAD INSIDE!"
** "CAUSE WE HUNT YOU DOWN WITHOUT MERCY!"
** And how can we forget, "NEVER CARED FOR WHAT THEY SAAAAAAY!"
* "The Safety Dance" by MenWithoutHats. You can dance if you want to...
** We can leave your friends behind. ... 'cause your friends don't dance, and if they don't dance, then they're no friends of mine! Ah, dammit.
** That song wasn't [[{{Futurama}} as safe as they said it was...]]
* Metro Station: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpU78IeTx_c Now if she does it like this, will you do it like that?/Now if she touches like this, will you touch her right back?/Now if she moves like this, will you move her like that?/Come on, shake shake, shake shake, a-shake it!]]
* [[http://youtu.be/IAKnocLqjnQ M-Flo loves Chara / Love to Live By]]
* Music/{{MGMT}}:
** "Time to Pretend". That melody (the one that goes "Da-da-da-da-da-DA-DA") won't leave my head at all.
** "Kids".
** "DO WHAT YOU FEEL NOW! ELECTRIC FEEL NOW!"
* By Ivan Mládek: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4aqM_wu6Ns Jozin! Z bazin!]]
** Oh, there's even [[http://www.jamendo.com/en/track/337791 a metal cover]] (by Dawid Mika).
* M.I.A.:
** "I fly like paper, get high like planes..."
*** It doesn't help that every line in each verse is repeated before going on to the second part of the verse, which is repeated...it never ends!
*** "All I wanna do is BANG-BANG-BANG-BANG and a CLICK CA-CHING and take your money..."
** M.I.A.'s discography is full of these, but "URAQT" is a particularly bad one. '''DIT-DIT-DIT ON YOUR MO-BILE PHONE'''
* From George Michael:
** "Cause I gotta have faith, I gotta have faith, faith, faith, ..."
*** And LimpBizkit's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-EdCNjumvI cover]] is equally sticky.
** Not to mention "Last Christmas", at least in Sweden where it actually it's fairly popular to sing in Lucia processions and at the start of Christmas Break.
** FREEDOM! FREEDOM! You've got to give them what you take!
** "I'm never gonna dance again.."
*** The Seether version is worse.
* Midnight Oil. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpkGvk1rQBI How can we dance when our Earth is turning/How do we sleep while our beds are burning...]]
** "But if I work all day on the blue sky mine, there'll be food on the table tonight!"
* Vic Mignogna's ''Soldier A'' came into being specifically because the line "Soldier A, soldier A! The unsung heroes of anime... " was such an ear worm that the director more or less ordered him to write the rest of the song.
* Joni Mitchell:
** The Circle Game
** Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi". Pick any recording of it (it's a popular cover song). The first episode of the TV show ''Now and Again'' used samples of the chorus as background music in pivotal scenes ("don't know what you got til it's gone"), which is part of the reason the show has managed to stick in the minds of fans, years later.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPG69s5x4N8 Helllllp me, I think I'm falling/in love with youuuuu...]]"
* K-pop group Miss A has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RCYNBCsWuo Bad Girl Good Girl]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTnwjlDhAY4 Breathe]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYKO1za5mX0&feature=relmfu Goodbye Baby]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHupZs9KCNc Love Alone]].
* Mindless Behavior: My girl, my girl, she loves me!
* Mindless Self Indulgence:
** "Faggot". I'VE, BEEN DENIED, ALL THE BEST, ULTRASEX.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9XDGD-HA1Q "Straight to Video"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2QZVWQRMOo 'Two Hookers (live)']]. That is all.
** Bitches love me cuz they know that I can ROCK!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJCGKXM81yY It Gets Worse]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khBLA4zTOy8 Fuck Machine]] are ridiculous examples of this, the former because the lyrics are some of the most depressing stuff you'll ever see, the latter because it's filthy as get out.
* Music/KylieMinogue:
** The appropriately titled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFx3WX4DES0 Can't Get You Outta My Head]].
*** They just played Can't Get You Outta My Head on TV. I have never heard the song before but ''God dammit''.
** To say nothing of her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkN4J2l1UaA cover of Locomotion]], which has been intermittantly stuck in my head for about a decade now.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agKQW1rxAtc I should be so lucky, lucky, lucky... ]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nj6IKIPteuE How does it feel in my aaaaaaaaaaarms?]]

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXs5ljRx_ZI "Make me feel like I can make it real / You got me hooked / Gettin' me on the floor / Like a drug, like a drug!"]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ErU5hKT2KMs Come, come, come into my world...]]
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHGaW8lBlSk Get outta my way / Got no more to say / He's taking your place / Get outta my way!]]"
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqHMrwi9s4I Ohhhhhhh / I'm fierce / And I'm feelin' mighty / I'm a golden girl / I'm an Aphrodite / Alright! / Alright! / Yeah, yeah, yeah!]]"
*** Can you feel me on your stereo?
* Minutemen: "Corona", aka the ''{{Jackass}}'' theme.
* Music/ModestMouse: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTAud5O7Qqk Alright, already, we'll all float on...]]"
* TheMonkees: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tY0z75MIIBI Fine man, crazy man, they can't see/Sound of the sunset, sound of the sea...]]"
** What about ''Daydream Believer''? I haven't heard that one in years, but it still gets randomly stuck in my head...
* From The Moody Blues, we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEMuAnFH_lM Tuesday Afternoon]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rkgm1yGgbM Nights in White Satin]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VDGwPiyLS8 The Actor]].

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLJf9qJHR3E Little Lion Man]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KkUeRPjc-Y The Cave]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KCg_QEHtkY Winter Winds]] by Mumford and Sons. At least it's CrowningMusicOfAwesome.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLGMyo8wfPc I will wait,]] I will wait for you!
* ''King of Spain'' by Music/MoxyFruvous. Remember that slower pizza's more luscious, 'cause the King of Spain never rushes!
** I occasionally hum a tune or barely-contextually belt out a line of one of their songs, to the chagrin of friends who have no interest in fantastic obscure Canadian folkapella. Some of their lines are beautiful instead of funny, though, such as Horseshoes:
--->''My sister Sue, and me were doing stunts with electric trains''\\
''She said she'd do my dishes so I handed her the reigns (handed her the reigns)''\\
''And she engineered a collision steered by a hand-eye protege''\\
''As my train set started burning, I heard my sister say:''\\
''Look straight at the coming disaster''
** One of the founders of the LiveJournal fork Dreamwidth has problems with "Pisco Bandito" getting stuck in her head.
* Mozart's ''Rondo Alla Turca'' and ''Eine Kleine Nachtmusik''.
** Queen of the Night, from Mozart's ''The Magic Flute''. Making it much worse is that you don't possibly have a hope of singing along unless you're an absurdly high-voiced soprano or sucking helium, yet you'll ''want'' to.
* Muisc/TheMisfits were quite good at making you sing horrifying lyrics over and over again.
** Ever hear Skulls? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLXEj4UowF8 go ahead and click]], if you want to sing about chopping little girls head's off all day...
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSgaqreXrKE HATEBREEDERS WHOOAAAHOOOO!]]
** Well, I got somethin to say/I killed a baby today/And it doesn't matter much to me/as long as it's dead.
** With just a touch of my burning hand, send my Astro Zombies to rape the land! Prime directive: EXTERMINATE THE WHOLE HUMAN RACE!
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCPwXb24a5U Cha-Cha Slide]] by Mr. C The Slide Man. Try and fail not to [[DanceSensation do the dance along with the music]]!
* JasonMraz:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0x1yBiFiUw If you gots the poison, I gots the remedy...]]
** "But I won't he-si-tate no more, no more, it can-not wait, I'm yours..."
** I won't give up!
* Münchener Freiheit (those guys who did the incredibly catchy ''Keeping The Dream Alive'') tend to turn out songs which are earworms, even to those (such as me) who don't understand a word of German. Nearly all the songs on ''Fantasie/Fantasy'' and ''Definitive Collection'' are earworms, including their cover of Bob Dylan's ''Baby Blue'' (in German).
** I had the chorus stuck in my head for six years. It did not help not knowing the language it was in. Listened to it three times in a row when I finally learnt its name. Still have it stuck, but know at least I can sing along.
* Mungo Jerry: "In the summertime when the weather is hot, you can chase right up and touch the sky..." An example of an awesome EarWorm.
* Music/MyChemicalRomance:
** ''Blood''. That is all. (I once found myself teaching it to my [[CrowdSong entire summer camp]] after singing it one too many times in public. * twitchy twitch* )
** ...Give them blood, blood, gallons of the stuff, give them all that they can drink and it will never be enough, so give them blood, blood, blllooooooOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHDDDDDD... *gasp*...I'M THE KINDA HUMAN WRECKAGE THATCHA LOVE!
** Anyone who's played Guitar Hero 2 will agree with me that Dead is an even bigger ear worm, and those that have played {{Burnout}} 3 will say I'm Not Okay (I Promise) is even bigger than ''that''.
*** You're deeeeeeead!!! We heard the news that you're de-e-ead! No one ever had much nice to say! Think I never liked you anyway...
** "Helena"..."So long and goodnight..."
** I see that and raise you a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcwGt1JlJSE "Teenagers"]]

** ''Gravity''...don't mean too much to me...
** ''Well I know (da da da da) that I can't make you stay, but where's your heart (da da da da) but where's your heart (da da da da) but where's your... AND I KNOW... (da da da da)'' etc etc. Becomes ridiculous when you and your friends have it so stuck in your head that you elect amongst yourselves lead and backing vocalists and people who imitate the sounds of all the instruments used. Oh yes.
** ''THIS AIN'T A PARTY, GET OFF THE DANCE FLOOR, YOU WANT THE GET DOWN, HERE COMES THE GANG WAR!''
** "Sing it for the boys, sing it for the girls"

All of the above will either cause you to start frantically reciting choruses over and over or loudly singing deceptively victorious-sounding tunes as you walk down the street.
* Massive Attack, especially the music riffs for 'Angel' and 'Teardrop'.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_QsCXm1vrk MONKEEY VER-SUS ROOOBOT]]. Very, very hard to stop singing this out loud.
* Matt and Kim's "Daylight" can be brought on my random mentioning of the band's name and will stick around for days, during which point frequent bouts of smiling are common, until it causes death. Yes, that's right, indie pop shall be the death of you.
** Also, there's "Cameras"
* Creator/LapfoxTrax: Three words: DUM DUM [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwpv7G2zSEE DIDAY.]]
** Pretty much ''everything'' under Mayhem is this. You're getting at least one song digitally engraved into you brain. Guaranteed!
* The Medic Droid: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4i70fPamhE Kick off your stilettos,kick off your stilettos, and fuck me in the back seat, FUCK ME IN THE BACK SEAT~]]
* The Move: "Flowers in the Rain", "Fire Brigade", "I Can Hear the Grass Grow" etc.
* MiracleOfSound: Gavin Dunne has admitted that he spends a lot of time writing the "hook" to each song.

* "99 Luftballons" by Nena
** Possibly made even more infectious by putting Goldfinger's English cover of it on the soundtrack to the North American version of ''GranTurismo 3''.
*** I fell in love with the song when I first heard it on the RocketPower tv movie "Race Across New Zealand." Then I found the ''original'' and I'm the only one of my friends who know it. I can still sing nearly the whole thing, word for word, because it's ALWAYS STUCK in my head.
*** I haven't listened to the song in at least a year, yet I can still remember all the lyrics. In German. Which I don't speak. And wouldn't know how to write properly. That's impressive. Luckily there are enough other ear worms eating my brain that it isn't terribly intrusive.
*** I just can't stop listening to every single version of that song that's out there!
*** I listen to the [[http://mp3.zing.vn/mp3/nghe-bai-hat/99-99-Love-Balloon-BAND-Nakanomori-BAND.IWZFAWA8.html Japanese version]] ALL THE TIME!

* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSVEC_DbhL8 Kuutamolla]]'' by Laura Närhi. The phrase 'Se ei mee pois', is Finnish for 'It won't go away'.
* Network Music Ensemble gives us [[http://www.myspace.com/networkmusicensemble/music/songs/giddy-up-84585455 "Giddy Up"]], which Creator/TheHub has used as backing music for ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' ads. Good luck getting ''that'' sum'bitch out of your head...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnNBIiaKC5A Weeeek by NewS]]. GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD! it also doesn't help that the dance for this song is a memetic mutation
* NewsBoys:
** Go up to anybody who was into Christian popular music in the 90's and say, "SHINE!"
** Issabella was a belly dancer with a kleptomaniac's restraint
* Olivia Newton-John has "Let Me Be There" and "If You Love Me (Let Me Know)", an interesting variant where the bass backing vocal on the chorus manages to be a bigger ear worm than the melody.
* Jerrod Niemann, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-q0LE3gtUn8&feature=avmsc2 Lover, Lover]]. "Ohh, lover, lover lover, you don't treat me no good no more~ Ohh, lover, lover lover..." It's one of those songs that just kinda... sits there in your head and plays a specific part over and over again.
* Nightcore: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8thtWNsWEFg DUM DADI DO - DUM DUM DI DO DI DUM - DUM DADI DO - DUM DUM DI DO DI DUM]]... AAAAGHHH!
** For that matter, any nightcored (vocal song), ranging from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xv7CN-BolEc 'No Cover Song']] , [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WN29h0gvZ8g 'My Girl']] , etc. to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6KhYBcQCLw 'G-Get Up And Dance']].
* Music/{{Nightwish}} mostly just goes for [[LargeHam completely over-the-top]] EpicRocking, but a few of their songs still manage to worm their way into your head and not let go:
** "How blind can you be/ don't you see/ you chose the long road/ but we'll be waiting. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yoh4XPfOmhY BYE, BYE, BEAUTIFUL!"]]
** The chorus to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LheT-SvZM2A Erämaan Viimeinen.]] Most Nightwish fans know it by its instrumental name, Last of the Wilds, however it originally had lyrics. In Finnish. As soon as you learn the words, ''it will not leave your head''. For ''hours''.
** "Master! Apprentice! Heart born, seventh seeker! Warrior! Disciple! In me, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLW7wJvdFSI the Wishmaster! ]]"
*** ''That's'' what [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gg5_mlQOsUQ they're]] [[{{Mondegreen}} really saying?]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueiOqaSvHp0 I WISH I HAD AN ANGEL FOR ONE MOMENT OF LOVE/I WISH I HAD YOUR ANGEL TONIGHT!]]

*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auHuwRAYDPE One thousand one/nights unseen/The philosopher/And the queen]]
* Music/HarryNilsson's "Coconut": You put the lime in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut_(song) Coconut]] and drink 'em both up, you put the lime in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut_(song) Coconut]] and drink 'em both up, put the lime in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut_(song) Coconut]], call the doctor, woke 'em up, said DOC-TAH! ...
** Somehow changing the lyrics to befit a Lime Coke ad does nothing to remedy the ear-wormyness.
* {{Nirvana}}:
** Load up on guns, BRING your friends. It's fun to lose, and to pretend.
*** Acting stupid, is contagious! Here we are now, entertain us!
** As an old memoria, memoriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiia...
** HEY! WAIT! I GOT A NEW COMPLAINT!
** [[BrokenRecord Grandma take me home! Grandma take me home!]]
** From that same album: Up, up up and down, turn turn turn around...
** You're in a laundry room!!
** Also: Kiss, kiss Molly's lips!
** Rape Me!
** I catch myself singing the chorus of Nirvana's "In Bloom" embarrassingly often. Kurt Cobain, you twisted bastard.
** Pennyroyal Tea, the catchiest song about abortion ever.
* NOFX have a few. For example: "Bob," "Franco Unamerican," "Wore the Soles Out of My Party Boots," "It's My Job To Keep Punk Rock Elite," "Seeing Double At the Triple Rock," "Leave It Alone," "Dinosaurs Will Die," "Linoleum," "Murder the Government," and "The Brews."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uXUvujG5V8 Haru Mamburu]] by Russian band Nogu Svelo!. Don't know Russian? That's okay, [[SingingSimlish it's not in Russian either]].

* "Elvira" by The Oak Ridge Boys. By the end of the song, I guarantee you'll be singing "giddy up ba oom papa oom papa mow mow" in the deepest voice you can muster.

** The summer sun, it blows my mind, fallin' down on all that I ever know...
* Frank Ocean's "Pyramids" is quite the earworm, in spite of -- or perhaps because of -- its length.
** "Bad Religion" and "Thinking 'Bout You" also
* All of the electroswing [[http://odjbox.bandcamp.com Odjbox]] has composed. ''Especially'' "[[http://odjbox.com/track/bakers-dozen Bakers Dozen]]".
* Of Monsters and Men's song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AP7Zmq0IS2c&feature=youtube_gdata_player Little Talks]] is one of these if you ever heard one.
** To a slightly lesser extent, "Mountain Sound" is one too.
* Jacques Offenbach's "Infernal Galop" from ''Orpheus in the Underworld.'' Never heard of it, you say? It's better known as Music/TheCancanSong.
* TheOffspring:
** "Why Don't You Get A Job" (already mentioned in the Beatles entry), "Self Esteem," "Come Out and Play" ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFwkv14u3b4 YOU GOTTA KEEP 'EM SEPARATED!]]), "All I Want" ([[SongAssociation double for]] ''CrazyTaxi'' players), and "Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)".
** "With a thousand lies and a good disguise, hit 'em right between the eyes, hit 'em right between the eyes..."
*** It's even worse if you have the "Dance, fuckers, dance" line stuck in your head, because then you can't sing it aloud without getting funny looks.
**** This is one of the few songs where the radio edit ''actually works''. Sing it right and it remains nicely rhythmic and doesn't sound like anything's missing.
** What about their song "One Fine Day"? That's one another that'll grow on you over time.
*** I BELIEVE IT'S MY GOD-GIVEN RIGHT! TO DESTROY EVERYTHING IN MY SIGHT!
** I WANT YOU ALL TATTOOED, I WANT YOU BAD, BAD, BAD! COMPLICATED, X-RATED...
