Crabbie suggested a post about artists who don't like songs for which they are famous. I found a lot of information on this subject and here are some of the people and groups on the long list. I decided to just list the songs without personal commentary.
Miley Cyrus hates all of her music. Oh, really? She is quoted as saying: "I listen to zero pop music, which is really weird for someone who makes pop music. My 13-year-old self would have beaten up my 17-year-old self because she would be like, 'You're a sellout!'" I'm thinking that's like the angsty 15 year old girl who takes 2,000 pictures of her face, up close, and posts them on Facebook each with a caption saying how ugly she thinks she is. Sorry, I said I wouldn't do that. I'm also not going to post videos to all her music. You're welcome.
Oasis hates their whole "Be Here Now" album. Because as Noel Gallagher's stated, it's "The sound of five men in the studio, on coke, not giving a fuck."
I chose this video because I was turned on to Oasis by a British guy who died shortly after we became acquainted. It's nostalgic and not a bad song.
GUNS 'N' ROSES
Slash hates "Sweet Child o' Mine". More accurately, he used to hate it and now he doesn't. It was a fluke song that they stumbled upon while acting stupid. I used to hate it and I still do. I don't much like any 'power ballads' by metal groups with the exception of pretty much anything Rob Halford does. Seriously, have you heard him do Johnny B. Goode?
The Beatles hate "Let It Be". One of the reasons they hated this album is they were possibly at the worst point in their relationship and teetering on the brink of break up. You can't see they are not happy in the video of the song "Let It Be".
Bob Geldof hates "Do They Know It's Christmas?" AND he hates "We Are The World".
R.E.M. does not like "Shiny Happy People". Michael Stipe says: "I wouldn't say I'm embarrassed by the song but it is what it is, has limited appeal for me. I try never to say anything bad about the songs that I don't particularly like. Because there might be someone out there who hears that to whom that song means everything, to whom that song represents something in their life which is essential and I don't want to take that from them."
You just knew this one would be on the list. Robert Plant hates "Stairway To Heaven". *sigh* If you must watch it, here's the video. Hit play, open a new tab in your browser and go surfing for ten minutes.
Jimmy Page, and Atheist Granny hates "Living, Loving Maid (she's just a woman)
Tom Petty dislikes "Free Falling" and "Don't Do Me Like That".
Judas Priest hates "You Got Another Thing Coming". (Shouldn't it be "think"?)
Radiohead hates Creep
Maddona hates her song "Like a Virgin". Of course she does, she sounds like Betty Boop
What I thought was interesting was most of these musicians disliked a song because they were unhappy with the attitude or atmosphere around the recording, or they were unhappy with the quality of their work. Madonna is just a Diva who doesn't want to sing the songs that made her a Diva. As I recall she didn't feel the need to tour to support her albums in the beginning either. I guess she got over that.
