The Top Ten

1 Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses

I don't understand why they would hate it. - PositronWildhawk

Slash played it on guitar while he was messing around. He thought it was silly but the riff later became the intro to this song causing Slash to call it Guns 'N Roses' worst song ever. - MFK

No 0 about it - jmepa1234

3 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

Was it Hated by him? Yet it is sensational. - jmepa1234

They probably hate its overpopularity. And I would be inclined to agree; it is obscenely overrated. LZ have done better. - PositronWildhawk

5 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

This song became so popular that it became overrated and many people would (and some still do) call themselves Nirvana fans but have only heard this song. This song isn't even my top 10 favorite Nirvana songs (Heart Shaped Box is my personal favorite) - Danielsun182

They Hated it? I never knew that! - jmepa1234
