You Knew It Was Coming...TheMusicGeek's Worst of 2009!

Soooooo I have already complied 5 best of lists and there were plenty of awesome songs that weren't on the lists that were also very good. However, now it's time to have a little fun and unleash my inner hater which I am really not ashamed of...I like to think of it as my inner "critic" but I know I'll get some heat for this I have in the past when I rant about someone's favorite rapper.

So let's get started:

HAM (Heart And Mind)
Look k-pop artists are given some really messed up names...but this one took the cake. I was hoping this group would redeem themselves with a kick ass first single and then they gave us T.T. Dance...

If you have been following this blog for a while you already know my undying hatred for this band especially after Spin proclaimed that it was one of the best new bands of 2009!....huh?! And now they have announced that it has the 5th best album of 2009 on their list of "The 40 Best Albums of 2009"...WHAT???? These guys couldn't sing or write songs if their lives depended on it!!! "I wish I had a boyfriend, I wish I had a loving man in my life, i wish I had a father maybe then I would have turned out right, cuz now I'm just crazy" Of course you have to imagine those lyrics sung by a congested 14 year old who hasn't hit puberty yet. It's pretty bad...honestly dudes go back to the commune.

Another artist whose popularity I will never understand, am I the only one who seems to think he's talentless? Spin also put him on their 40 best albums of 2009 list....but Drake really hasn't made a song yet that I consider a great artistic endeavor. He is great at half assed rap lyrics and stupid songs catered to the ladies and of course reminding everyone that he is affiliated with "Young Money Entertainment." I still don't get how "You The Best" can be considered one of the best rap songs of the year when Wale, Pac Div, Mos Def, Wiz Khalifa and Skyzoo have all been negelected. This kid needs to get himself some substance.

Taylor Swift
Look I get it, everyone felt bad for Taylor at the MTV Music Awards when Kanye West slighted her in public, but after the media spectacle which should of lasted a month AT THE MOST everything should have gotten back to normal. And I do give the girl credit for writing her own songs, but do I think she should be crowned artist of the year by various music publications and websites..cough cough YAHOO MUSIC! Hell no! Seriously the girl is my age and is still writing about HIGH SCHOOL. Her fan base consists of 13 year old girls because she writes songs about castles and princes and unrequited love, add to the fact that she still makes fun of her ex Joe Jonas in public (seriously get over him) and I want to take her aside and tell her to grow up. I know she is still very marketable and little girls love her so she can sell albums but let's take quality over quantity and please cutesy little songs about not being popular in high school and crushes get old, real fast. Develop some range as a song writer, you're reproducing the same Disney theme songs over and over again.

Miley Cyrus
Yeah yeah bet you could see her on this list too. Mostly it's just because I don't get it, unlike Taylor who actually writes her own songs and can carry a decent tune, Miley can do neither one!!! And if I have to endure "Party in the USA" one more time in public I may just break down and cry...even the Auto-Tune can't cover up how crappy her voice is.

Were you ever curious to see what a cat being run over by a lawn mower sounds like? Me neither.

Vivian Girls
This song explains perfectly why I hate noise punk...perfectly.

Tech N9ne
Ohh god..there is SO much wrong with this song...from the verses to the chorus. Believe me we won't bother you if you keep rapping this song...seriously. It's not that the content of the song is messed...there is a good message, but whoever produced this joint along with the guy singing the chorus...seriously it ruined the track.

Yeah I bet life is REAL hard....


  1. Your comment about Lovvers made me laugh SO HARD!

  2. Holy shit... I started listening to The Vivian Girls song and had to stop it 30 seconds in. What the hell?!
    But I love the fat drummer among all the pretty girls xD

  3. Heh heh - the great thing is that these are all really hyped bands and you know what...? You're right, they're all terrible!!
    I hate Girls - I don't see why the NME put their album in their top 50 of 2009. Actually, when they wrote about it they made it sound like THEY didn't even know why they were putting it in there. Are they just TRYING to look cool?
