The Music Thread: Songs That Are Invalid


But first...

The Allman Brothers Band is the best rock band in history.

Fight me!


Whipping Post

Statesboro Blues

Blue Sky



Okay...that's settled.

Below the fold are a couple of songs that are flawed. Illogical. Incorrect.

If you can think of any others, mention them in the comments and the best one will win a Two Year Platinum membership with Troll-B-GonTM! The ampersand utility is on the fritz, so that isn't part of the deal. Sorry.

It doesn't get much better than Johnny Cash in his prime, and Folsom Prison Blues is one of his better songs.

But he killed a man in Reno, which the last time I checked was in Nevada, and he is in prison in Folsom California?

Sorry, but that would never happen so the song is invalid.

But it's still damned good music!


I like old U2.
Now that you have stopped laughing their first few albums are pretty good. The 1980s were good to them, and even into the 1990s with Achtung Baby they turned out some solid music and became a huge and successful band...and it all went to their heads, especially Bono's and that thoroughly pedestrian lead guitarist with the asshole name.


A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle
U2's song, Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World isn't bad, but that one line...that one really stupid, condescending, patronizing and objectively incorrect line makes the entire song worthless and invalid.


"She dreams in color she dreams in red"
Better Man

Wow. Pearl Jam. What the hell does that mean? Which is it? Color...or red? Get it straight!

Oh, I really don't like Pearl Jam. Last fall I spent several days in the car, and I played my music library set on random. Apparently I used to think Pearl Jam was good, but I found myself skipping all of their music.

Anyone want to defend them?


And a few more songs from my playlist of the past few weeks...

The Band. Not a large body of work, but there are some gems!

Here is maybe their best one! The Weight


Van Morrison: Tupelo Honey

Chris Stapleton: Tennessee Whiskey

Who? I heard this guy for the first time last night!
