The Top Ten

1 Creep - Radiohead Creep - Radiohead

This is the definition of a successful song the artist hated. Should be #1. - Donut

2 Wonderwall - Oasis Wonderwall - Oasis V 1 Comment
3 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin V 1 Comment
4 Pinball Wizard - The Who Pinball Wizard - The Who
5 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
6 (You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party) - Beastie Boys (You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party) - Beastie Boys
7 Strangers In the Night - Frank Sinatra Strangers In the Night - Frank Sinatra

Yes, we were strangers in the night, mainly because we didn't know each other (Bill Dana) - Billyv

8 I Ran - a Flock of Seagulls I Ran - a Flock of Seagulls
9 Shiny Happy People - R.E.M Shiny Happy People - R.E.M

Can't blame them I don't like this song either - Quart

10 Escape - Metallica Escape - Metallica

The Contenders

11 Like a Virgin - Madonna Like a Virgin - Madonna
12 Pull Me Under - Dream Theater Pull Me Under - Dream Theater

I understand why the band regret making the song. A lot of elitist DT fans always complain if they didn't hear this song in their live sets. While the band were writing special setlists with lots of long and great songs better than this. Not that this is a bad song. - IronSabbathPriest

13 If You Were a Woman (And I Was a Man) - Bonnie Tyler If You Were a Woman (And I Was a Man) - Bonnie Tyler

Desmond Child wrote it but he was dissatisfied with its chart success.
So he re-wrote it for Bon Jovi as "You Give Love a Bad Name"! - Metal_Treasure

14 Cherry Pie - Warrant Cherry Pie - Warrant
15 Hey Baby - Deadmau5 Hey Baby - Deadmau5

I can understand why he regretted making this. The lyrics are too sexual and the vocals are too moany and discordant for his standards, and the instrumental version is good, but not brilliant. - PositronWildhawk

16 Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses
17 The Lovecats - The Cure The Lovecats - The Cure
18 Loser - Beck Loser - Beck V 1 Comment
19 Tom Sawyer - Rush Tom Sawyer - Rush

Geddy has stated that he is getting tired of always playing this song live. It isn't their best song, just the most popular. - cjWriter1997
