Ten Overplayed Rock/Metal Songs

There are times when a great song comes out. And when I say great, I mean that when you hear it, you know it’s something special, something that you want to keep on your iPod at all times so that whenever you have that yearning to hear it, it’s at your fingertips. But then there are tracks that, before it even gets on your iPod, you’ve heard it so many times that even the thought of dragging it onto your iPod makes you clench your fists and grit your teeth. With that, I present to you readers a list of ten rock and metal songs that I’ve heard more times than I could ever have possibly wanted. Check after the jump for the full list.

Also, if there are any tracks you feel should’ve made the list, leave a comment and we’ll get a second issue of this going. Warning: if your song makes me kill someone, I’m blaming you.

In no particular order:
Metallica – Enter Sandman
Okay, I get it, The Black Album is Metallica’s best selling album. It also sounds absolutely amazing. But honestly, I’m sick and tired of this song. 
Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit
I could never hear this song again and it would still be too soon. But if you want a hilarious mashup, check out this version.
Drowning Pool – Bodies
A great example of overplaying the everliving hell out of a really fun song. Had it not been everywhere, I would still be able to listen to this song without wanting to shoot a puppy in the face.


Journey – Don’t Stop Believing
I’m a big fan of karaoke. I go with friends at least once or twice a month. However, there is always that one jackass that thinks they can sing this song. To that person I say this: No. No you can’t. Don’t try. Don’t even think about it. STOP believing.

Guns N Roses – Sweet Child O’ Mine
I hear the first three seconds of this song and already I want to drive icepicks into my eyes. 

Staind – It’s Been A While
If you added all the times you’ve heard this song, you’re probably approaching a full 24 hours worth of time. That’s how much they played this song on the radio. Enough is most certainly enough. 

Nickelback – How You Remind Me
Who thought this song was good? Honestly?

Lynyrd Skynyrd – Sweet Home Alabama
Again, a great song tarnished by how often it gets played. It became such an iconic song that there was a movie called ‘Sweet Home Alabama’. And what song did they put in the trailer? Do you really need to guess?

Pink Floyd – Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2
I LOVE Pink Floyd. Hell, I did a retro review for ‘The Wall’ and the movie is one of my great films of all time. But this song drives me crazy every time I hear it. I am so sick of hearing it that I decided that I DO want an education, just to spite the damn track.

Green Day – Anything off of any of their albums
No explanation needed.
