According to Chrissie Hynde (the member of the Pretenders) the song is so obvious and she hated it with a vengeance. She said in 2004 to the Observer: "i wasn't very happy with it and I told my producer that he could release it over my dead body" - somekindofaguy

10The Who - Pinball Wizard

Pete Townshend about the song: "the most clumsy piece of writing I've ever done" and he told that it's an "awful" song - somekindofaguy

11Dio - Rainbow in the Dark

Dio at first hated the album because he thought it was too pop. In fact he tried to destroy the song but was stopped by his band mates. However he grew on to the song and made it one of his signature ones. - ChaoslordG1

@ChaoslordG1 yeah, I heard about this, it just wasn't on my mind somewhy when I made this list... god bless Dio that he didn't destroyed it, it is a great masterpiece, and hardly poppy... at least, not more poppy than the Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne - somekindofaguy
