LOL I think I still have a couple Chipmunks albums somewhere... I know I had one where they sang country-western songs, and another one called Chipmunks Go Hollywood. True treasures of the early '80s.

to get an idea of the worst music in history, all you have to do is look at the Billboard or UK singles and album charts every week,

being 18 years old myself, it feels very odd to say something like that, but you cant beat the old greats, and when I say old, its all kind of new to me anyway, and I have no regrets about choosing this music ,

but I must admit, I have to disagree with a few comments on this thread, I do like 70's Elton John,

Me without the Chipmunks is like Robert Kennedy without a Mafia Godfather.

My idea of the worst thing EVER recorded is Shirley Ellis' late 1964 monstrosity "The Name Game." I think it is an insane word salad; hate it and when I was as young as 3 I would turn it off saying, "That's not a song. It's stupid and bad and those aren't real words." I would rather hear every siren, foghorn, leaf blower, vacuum cleaner and blender going off simultaneously (and I HATE the noises from these items) than that damn Name Game. It is truly asinine and I find it sheer torture. The Beatles didn't do crappy junk like that!

I don't like Sam La Sham & the Pharaohs' 1965 piece, "Wooly Bulls***" or another asinine song, "A One Horned Flying Purple People Eater" or that damn 1962 "Monster Mash." I just HATE that one!

I stand corrected. Still, "Revolution 9" is better than purple people eaters; insane word salads like that atrocious name game and those damn Chipmunks.

See, I can understand (although disagree with) people saying anything of a specific genre. But an entire decade? Ignoring most of the solo Beatle efforts (only a handful of the ones in the 80s were decent), you still have songs like "Take on Me," "Shout," "What You Need," "Thriller," "Tempted"...

But the 80's gave us REM and U2-- two great bands. We also got 'Shoot Out the Lights' from Richard and Linda Thompson--a desert island disc I forgot to put on my list.

The Chipmunks doing country is called "Urban Chipmunk". I know, I have it.
It came out just after the success of Urban Cowboy with John Revolting.

Speaking of bad country...
I'm a big C & W fan: Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, Willie Nelson, Hank Sr., Emmylou Harris,Gram Parsons. I'd say the worst music in history is the comtemporary pop-country of the Tim McGraw-Alan Jackson-Brooks & Dunn-Garth Brooks variety.

How totally ignorant! The Beatles were *NEVER* remotely a stupid,uncool,untalented boy band! And The Beatles wrote and played very good and great rock,rock and roll and rock songs from their earliest days many of their early songs were hard rock for 1963 including She Loves You.



The Beatles even in their early days were writing and playing on records as well in concerts,both love ballads,and great rocking rock n roll and pop rock songs that they both wrote and cover songs including their great rocking performances in Sweden where the audience was quiet during their performances.




https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=R...&v=EWFOO9CWfUQ





They were the greatest *rock* band ever! (NEVER A G*d dam*ed stupid,uncool,untalented boy band as so many ignorant morons misperceive them as!) And I have always loved this great blues rocker by Paul,She's A Woman.



Except live there isn't the piano,blending with the great rocking guitars,Paul's great prominent booming bass,and his great rock vocal! And once again it's amazing how good they sound on such limited,primitive sound systems of the time and with no feedback monitors so they couldn't even hear themselves singing and playing,yet they still played and sang great and in sync with each other.



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsNgLiPyuCY




Here is their great April 1965 New Music Express Winner's Poll concert from April 11,1965.They won three years in a row.And notice that there are men and women of ages in the audience.



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COSSsu1GSCk



Here they performed Paul's great rocking I Saw Her Standing There in Sweden in October 1963 which The Beatles recorded in February 1963 on their first album Please Please Me which was recorded in just one day.



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkySom9bTfM




The Beatles performing their rocking cover of Long Tall Sally with Paul's great rocking vocal June 1964.



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiXtk296YmE



Here in 1964 June in Melbourne Australia they are playing John's great rock song that they had recorded in February 1964 on their first great early album A Hard Day's Night.



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8Dpt7TI9q0



And here they performed Paul's very good hard rocking,especially for early 1965,I'm Down at The Ed Sulivian Theater August 14,1965 one night before their live Shea Stadium performance.


https://vimeo.com/133531241



Here is their even harder rocking performance at Shea Stadium on August 15,1965 than they did on their record version of Paul's I'm Down. And they did what a great rock n roll band would do,they ended this rock n roll concert with this rocking song.



https://vimeo.com/146526352



Here they performed a rocking cover of Dizzy Miss Lizzy with John's great rock vocal,at the same She Stadium concert.



https://vimeo.com/14652584



Here is another great rocking Beatles performance of the cover Twist and Shout in June 1964 in Melbourne Australia




https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdIzcm95NCM





And what a huge disgusting insult to all of them as very talented musicians,and to John and Paul as extremely talented song composers and great singers,and to John Lennon's memory and was never the founder and leader of some stupid,uncool,untalented boy band! And I'm certain that if John were still living he would come on youtube and other message boards and say I was *never* the founder and leader of any f**king stupid,uncool,untalented boy band get that through your stupid f***king heads!




If Beethoven,Mozart and Bach had screaming teenage girls in their audiences and they formed a band together they would have been a boy band too right?

See my long topic here debunking this totally ignorant,ludicrous myth that The Beatles were ever a boy band.

http://www.beatlelinks.net/forums/sh...ad.php?t=49802


As one of the members on here,who hasn't been on here for years,Reverend Rock,who is a rock musician,reverend and a big Beatles fan,said on a classic rock site many years ago when someone ignorantly called The Beatles a boy band,He said anyone who knows their history knows it's ludicrous to even *suggest* such a thing!

It is like all these groups making R&B Music, if you mentioned R&B in the sixties it was quite different music than what they for some weird reason call R&B artists these days.

Yes,and The Rolling Stones also wrote other type pop songs,Wild horses,Lady Jane,Happy,As Tears Go By,and the two dreadful disco songs,Emotional Rescue and Miss You etc.At least when Paul McCartney did disco music like Good Night Tonight it was good music!



In 1964 The Rolling Stones wrote and recorded a Rice Krispies TV commercial jingle not something cool like a cigarette ad and they also had teen girls screaming at their early concerts.Maybe The Rolling Stones should be called a boy band too.I'm pretty certain The Beatles never wrote and recorded a jingle for a cereal TV commercial.But it's obvious that The Rolling Stones did this for the same reasons The Beatles went along with the fake cleaned up image their manager Brian Epstein created,to get their foot in the door after working their a*ses off playing for years.

The Beatles weren't boys,they were grown men in their early-mid 20's in their early days,and Jimi Hendrix,Tom Petty,Richie Sombora,and Joe Perry etc said they became Beatles fans from the time they watched The Beatles perform on The Ed Sulivan show in February 1964,Richie Sambora was only 5 years old.And Ozzy Osbourne says he became a big Beatles fan at age 15 in 1963 after he heard She Loves You for the first time,on his transistor radio,he still calls them the greatest band to ever walk the earth.Bob dylan also said he became a Beatles fan after hearing so many hit songs on the radio were Beatles songs when he was on a long car trip,he said their chords were just outrageous and their harmonies made it all valid etc


And John and Paul wrote one of the Rolling Stones first hits,the rock and roll song,I Wanna Be Your Man in 1963,and they wrote it right in front of them and Keith Richards and Mick Jagger were really impressed that they could write a song just like that,and it inspired them to start writing their own songs.And both bands became good friends from then on.

I'm with letmerollit 100%. When I was a very young child, I remember being irate to a great degree over those damn Chipmunks mutilating Beatle songs. I didn't like their played at the wrong speed falsetto voices to start with, but when they massacred Beatle classics, that tore it for me.
