Top 5 musicians who hate their own work

February 26, 2013

Cracked recently posted a funny article listing five of the most iconic songs that are hated by the artists who created them, and some of the people included are surprising. 

According to the article, the top 5 are:

5. Radiohead - "Creep"

4. Weezer - Pinkerton Album

3. The Who - "Pinball Wizard"

2. Warrant - "Cherry Pie"

1. Led Zeppelin - "Stairway to Heaven"

Thom Yorke, the lead singer of Radiohead, has stormed off the stage at concerts where "Creep" was requested. The lead singer of Warrant, Jafi Lane, wrote their hit "Cherry Pie" in 15 minutes on the back of a pizza box, after the record label wanted a clear hit single on the album.

Even though Jimmy Page called "Stairway to Heaven" "the essence of the band," lead singer of Zeppelin Robert Plant absolutely hated the song. According to the article, Plant despised the song so much he gave a donation to a radio station that refused to ever play it.  
 

Are there any other bands or artists you know that hate a song they created?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
