These music artists are famous for songs that did not define them. They did write music that is good but was drowned out by the songs that used less effort.

The Top TenXW

1Loser - Beck
2Hey Jude - The Beatles
3Wonderwall - Oasis

I literally cannot stand this song, or the fact that Oasis has written much BETTER songs than this, but nobody knows them because they think of this whenever they think of Oasis! What the hell is wrong with everybody who thinks that songs like "Some Might Say", "Fade In-Out" & "Roll With It" are inept, instead turning their heads towards this stupid song?!?! It's effortless and uninspired, just accept it!
