ITT some songs are popular because they are good and, sometimes, there are songs that you have no clue why the masses love. In this thread, we are going to talk about songs you hate that everyone else loves. The song doesn't have to hit song necessarily. I'll start.
"Love Bites" by Def Leppard is one of the worst examples of a forced power ballad from the 80s for many reasons. One obvious reason is that Hysteria is one of the worst albums of all time. Songs like "Love Bite" showed that Def Leppard sold out. Instead of appealing to the hard rockers of the time like they did with Pyromania, Def Leppard decided to appeal to people who are fans of pop. This is a really bad match for their singer Joe Elliot because frankly is not that great of a singer. Joe relies heavily on studio magic and, it shows when he sings along in the song. In "Love Bites," Elliot tries to be thoughtful and sensitive but, he only comes across as cheesy. He almost sounds like he is crying it is pathetic that this song was a number 1 hit song. The band doesn't play anything noteworthy and, the singer is intolerable. Most people love this song and the album Hysteria, while I couldn't hate the song and album more.

Little Talks by Of Monsters And Men is a terrible fucking song. If you're European you probably know it, it was on the radio 24/7 circa 2011. It was incredibly popular. I still hear it on the radio every now and then. It's one of those songs that always gets stuck in your head.
A real staple of the fucking dreadful indie music scene that was so popular back in the early 2010s. Sort of feels like if Tumblr was a song. It's such a terrible, bland annoying fucking song.

I hear that song consistently. I don't hate it but, I don't know what makes the song good. Is it supposed to be unique? The song is kinda lame so, I agree anon.

I was actually thinking of posting that one lol.

I think people like it because of it's lo-fi "indie" nature. Like in the music video he's alone in a room playing it on an electric piano or something. That's the kind of vibe the song is trying to give, a pure and honest musician in his room making music for no one but himself. Thing is, it's not even fucking indie. This is like a normie-acceptable, mainstream version of indie.

I remembered another one, Radioactive by Imagine Dragons. Another piece of shit from the god-awful 2010s indie scene. Do you remember when everyone was listening to this song? It has over a billion views on Youtube.

I liked it until the singing came in.

Here are my picks. Others in this thread have posted about bland, annoying rock.

Coldplay is basically bland annoying rock: the band.

Hipsters must be retarded because Coldplay has sold tens of millions of records.

Imagine Dragons is the blandest band I've ever heard. The sales figures for this song scared me.

I've always hated the song "Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye. It was yet another hipster garbage track that managed to hit it big in the early 2010s. Just look at the stupid album art. What exactly is great about the song? The lyrics are dopey and bewildered about the breakup. It is pathetic. The vocals and instrumentally are nothing to write home about. It managed to be certified 14x platinum in America alone.
