Who's in?

I have some free time coming up, a vacation simply to use up vacation, and in that time I plan on playing a lot of guitar. One thing I want to do is learn a collection of awful songs, then play the fuck out of them with my friends while we're drunk.

First on the list?

What if God was One of Us by Joan Osborne:

I like to play Whats Up by 4 Non Blondes. Not really a crappy song, but it is when anybody but that woman sings it.

I do the "king of the hill" theme.

It's easy running barre chords up and down the neck but it looks pretty busy.

Short song, though.

Yeah, I like to do theme songs.  They are usually pretty corny and they are short and simple.  I know King of the Hill too. lol

I think there are a lot more interesting theme songs to play on bass, but I can't play the bass well enough yet.  Barney Miller, Sanford and Son, Night Court and so on.

Ouch. I started playing white wedding for this garage band I used to play with and they refused to learn it.

That being said, I've been fucking around with Meatloaf's '2 out of 3 ain't bad'.

I love playing "Liquor and Whores"

Chicks cringe when you play it but your buddies will laugh big time.

I'm not sure why, but I seem to have zeroed in on lots of songs about violence against women. Hey Joe, Down by the River, Sugerbabe, Delia...

These were literally the first songs I learned.

I didn't actually choose to learn songs about violence against women, it just sort of happened.

Anything by Air Supply. You bust one of those out, and your friends will cringe. Although, my go to goofy song that not many do is "Centerfold" by J Geils Band.

Nothing awful about Ratt though! Listen to "The morning after", and say they are awful.
