I enjoyed the embarrassment of some of the favorite albums of all time thread so much I figured we should share some skeletons.

1 - Britney Spears - Who cares which album. She is a New Orleans area kid so I gave her a chance. But i did not inhale. That is one bad album.
2 - Mili Vinilli - Saw them live in concert. No doubt there were not singing.
3 - Poison - all of them, but I won't see Brett Michaels in concern when he comes next month. Does that help?
4 - Guns and Roses Live - worst quality recording, of music I like, I have ever heard.
5 - do I need more?

From my high-school days of having a car with a pair of 12's in the trunk. Oh yeah, that was cool .



It's in my basement somewhere, on a cassette. Where it shall stay.

Ahh, just what i was hoping for. Peter, why did you give up the 12's? They are making some serious bass music now. I have been able to hang on to one 10" but I do bear the ridicule of my friends and family.

Because I grew up. My trunk now needs to hold things like groceries and golf clubs. \:\)

I still enjoy a little bassy techno every now and then, Daft Punk, Phutureprimitive, etc. I just have no desire to share it with all the cars or homes around me. ;\)

Worst albums I own(ed):

Deep Down in Dance - V/A (I got it free, does that count?)

Thin Red Line & Diamond Sun - Glass Tiger (I was 13-14, and chicks liked that stuff!)

Pornograffiti - Extreme (yes, that piece of drek with Hole Hearted and More than Words... the only CD I've actually given away)

I actually like some of the tracks from whatever bass 305 cd i have ripped onto my computer. I used to think it was retarted to have so much bass in a car but then what do you know, i built this ginourmous box that takes up my entire extra cab and love to crank it up as loud as it will go just because... i can. \:\)

I was thrown strait into the musical deep end in my first year of college by a group of people who had an average 7 or 8 extra years of living over me, so by the time I owned my first system, I ended up with mostly decent stuff.

Probably the worst album I bought was Season of the Witch, Seven Stills and John Mayall. Great artists, but the album was cut from a late night, drug and alcahol induced jam session that someone thought they should sell. The title track was good. The rest was embarassing.

I also owned a couple of Nazareth albums that I could never listen to again.

If we're only counting stuff I own as opposed to stuff my wife owns:

Gary Hoey-Bug Alley. This album was so badly mastered it caused me to get into a car accident. I haven't listened to it since.

Since Glass Tiger has already been mentioned, I'll go with "Starship - We built this City on Rock and Roll". It was a Christmas gift from a well intentioned aunt.

Worst album my friends ever owned?
The first "Wham". He bought it to annoy me so I threw it out the window of his vette (really a Chevette) at it's top speed of 52 miles an hour.

I'm struggling to come up with an entry here. I've been blessed by good gift-givers, and I've avoided bad music myself, for the most part.

I have, however, bought some wild stuff, and this one wasn't quite as funny as I had hoped:


Jingle Cats, from 1994.

I'm sorry to be the one to break it to you, but if you ever took part in listening to Jingle Cats (or Dogs, or Turtles, etc) then you should not be "struggling to come up with an entry". Milli Vinilli was at least music - even if they did not sing a lick of it! Jingle Cats, Seriously?????

But it's actually very good! Quality stuff. Just not funny, as I said.

I have several Uriah Heep CDs bought in a batch from eBay, and I finally got around to listening to them the other day. What a load of pretentious nonsense. No more 70s nostalga for me.

Although I didn't own it, my sister had a Shaun Cassidy album that I absolutely could not stand. It was probably the worst album that I've heard. I remember buying Styx II for "Lady" but all of the rest of the songs on that album sucked.

Nirvana special edition with early recordings from the group. Absolute SH#T. Made me dislike some of the songs i loved. Worst $18 I have spent in recent years. Nirvana unplugged still one of my favorite.

How could one man sound so good and so bad within one lifetime.
