Some people believe you can't get too much of a good thing while others will point out the concept of radio overplay proves that's not true.
Now eccentric blog the Donnybrook Writing Academy has published a list of tracks including a stack of rock classics which should be banned from the airwaves. The Who, Queen, Springsteen, Def Leppard, AC/DC, Metallica, Ozzy and Soundgarden all make the "bottom 100" alongside the Led Zeppelin and George Thorogood ones.
Author Colonel Hector Bravado says: Some of these songs we love. Some of them, if they were people, we'd burn to death in front of their families. But what do they have in commong? All have succumbed to the putrefaction of overplay. None of them should be played anywhere for any reason.
