Title says it all.
Basically, what songs do you think are bad/weird/stupid/unpleasant to listen to, but with great guitar parts.
You can say the opposite, and say good songs with bad guitar parts instead if you want.

I'm gonna have to say Desert Rose by Eric Johnson. His voice is annoying, and the song is just sissy, until EJ's guitar parts kick in.

As for a good song with bad guitar parts, i'm gonna have to say Pantera's Walk.
Sweet song, but crummy solo and tone.
Call me Wes.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

i found that Lost Prophets was always pretty good until their singer opened his mouth.

I definitely agree with Desert Rose.
While looking at a guitar magazine with some friends.

Don't you understand the importance of correct spelling and grammar? It's the online symbol of maturity. And you as sure as hell don't have that.

Avenged Sevenfold.

They'd be listenable if they ditched that horrible singer.

And those ridiculous nicknames. I mean seriously, who are you fooling with that crap?

I think they were 12 when they got together.

They look about 17 now so that'd be about right.

The obvious answer that I post in every one of these threads is "The Final Countdown" by Europe.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

I was going to say that. Ian Watkins can sound allright, but not when it sounds like 'Uhhhhh-uh'.
