Worst of Music Retrospective: United States of Pop 2015

I don’t think that we’ve done a Worst of Music post since this time last year. It’s not that music has gotten any better. I’m just avoiding any of the hits stations as much as possible. If you go off the Billboard path, you can find some pretty good music. This year, I’ve discovered Deafheaven and Sleater Kinney so it’s not like music is all terrible. Just mostly terrible.

Since most of the internet has gone into year-in-review mode, I thought that we’d do our usual retrospective of the worst music of 2015. But why do I have to do anything when I can use DJ Earworm’s annual mashup of the top 50 pop hits of the year to recap the year in bad music. Apart from Adele. She’s alright.

Worst of Music Retrospective: United States of Pop 2014

While this year was a quiet one for Worst of Music posts on the blog (the only one was Avril Lavigne’s Hello Kitty), that doesn’t mean that there wasn’t a whole pile of bad music this year.

Since most of the internet has gone into year-in-review mode, I thought that we’d do our usual retrospective of the worst music of 2014. But why do I have to do anything when I can use DJ Earworm’s annual mashup of 25 of the top pop hits of the year to recap the year in bad music.

What if Disney Princesses Were Game of Thrones Characters?

disney-game-of-thrones-banner-djedjehutiSince we’re only six weeks away from the season premiere of Game of Thrones, I think that now is the time for the return of regular Game of Thrones posts in a series that I’ve come to dub Fridays of Ice and Fire.

For the return of Game of Thrones posts, I found this mashup of Disney princesses with characters from Game of Thrones in the gallery of DjeDjehuti. So what would Disney characters look like if they were in the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros?

Worst of Music 2013 Retrospective: United States of Pop

Well, it’s certainly been a while since I’ve done a Worst of Music post. I really need to bring these things back on a semi-regular basis. But do you know how bad music can be nowadays. I was going insane listening to “today’s big hits.”

But since everyone’s doing year in review type stuff, I thought that I’d throw the annual DJ Earworm mashup of the year’s big songs into the mix on behalf of the Worst of Music. So to look back on the year that was in music, both the good but mostly bad, here’s is a collection of mashups of the 25 biggest songs of 2013.

Curly, Larry and Moe are The A-Team

In 1972 , a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum-security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem… if no one else can help… and if you can find them… maybe you can hire… The A-Team.

Worst of Music 2012 Retrospective

There were some highlights in music this year but, as always, those highlights were largely overshadowed by some craptacular music in 2012. While the Worst of Music feature wasn’t on the blog regularly this year, that didn’t mean that music got better this year. Apart from some highlights like Psy and Adele, there was a lot of bad music other than the 15 WoM winners of 2012.

To look back on the year that was in music, both the good but mostly bad, here’s is a collection of mashups of the hit songs of 2012. Continue reading

Worst of Music Retrospective: DJ Earworm – United State of Pop 2011: World Go Boom

It’s that time of year again. DJ Earworm has mashed up the year’s top 25 songs into a mega-mix mashup for the United State of Pop 2011. This year’s is a pretty accurate representation of the year in music. It has a fast tempo, a driving beat, the lyrics are indecipherable and it’s generally painful to listen to. That’s not a shining endorsement of the song but it does sum up 2011 in music perfectly. Of the 25 songs the DJ Earworm uses, 15 are winners of the Worst of Music award. Continue reading
