Ten Annoyingly Catchy Songs
Let's face it: there are a lot of songs you really like. You might sing them in the shower, or put the lyrics on an online profile in the "about me" section. Then there are songs you just can't seem to get out of your head. This list deals with the latter.

Number 1: Nickelback - "Rockstar"

Even if you are one of the many people who hate this band, there's no denying you've probably at least hummed the chorus a couple times.



Number 2: The Clash - "Should I Stay Or Should I Go"

This is not one of the Clash's better tunes, but even still it's pretty darn unforgettable.

Number 3: Los Lobos - "La Bamba"

Don't speak Spanish? Not a problem, this song boasts a great party beat.

Number 4: The Kingsmen - "Louie Louie"

I find it interesting that despite almost indescypherable lyrics, this song manages to get a good deal of listeners singing along, though they usually improvise the words.


Number 5: Nirvana - "Sliver"

Nirvana are most likely a band nobody would expect on this type of list, but trust me, once you hear this song, it stays in your head.

Number 6: David Bowie - "Space Oddity"

This is the same deal as "Rockstar." Even if you hate David Bowie, you probably enjoy "ground control to Major Tom."

Number 7: Rick James - "Super Freak"

Thirty years and this is still one of the most danceable tunes around!

Number 8: Blink-182 - "First Date"

I can't really say anything that isn't obvious. This is one of the best commercially created songs of the 21st Century. It's unavoidably infectious and I'm saying that as a man who really hates pop punk.

Number 9: Katy Perry - "I Kissed A Girl"

The irony is that, hearing a guy sing this makes it entirely boring.


Number 10: Journey - "Don't Stop Believing"

Whether you know it from the 1980's, "Family Guy, " or "Rock of Ages," Journey's signature tune transcends all boundaries.


I have chosen to exclude any songs by the Beatles, as well as anything that would be too obvious. Regardless, I hope everyone who reads this finds their new favorite song.
