Top Ten Best Songs Hated by Their Own Band/Singer

These are songs that are hated by the artist who created the song itself. Someday, these songs will get their approval. PLEASE DON'T PUT ANY SONGS ON HERE JUST BECAUSE YOU HATE IT!

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

2 Rainbow in the Dark - Dio
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

4 Don't Stop Me Now - Queen
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

6 Pull Me Under - Dream Theater

The band hate the song because fans got annoyed if it wasn't played at ALL live shows. - IronSabbathPriest

7 Creep - Radiohead

They wouldn't even attempt to play it live since so many people like that song that it's tiring for them. - NuMetalManiak

It's well CREEPY! Great joke huh? HEY don't DISS MY JOKE! - jmepa1234

I like this song - MusicalPony

8 Cherry Pie - Warrant

W-arr-ant a cherry pie - a pulled another one off! Haha - jmepa1234

9 In the End - Linkin Park

From what I heard, Chester didn’t even want this song to be in their album. - Undistinguished

10 Wonderwall - Oasis

Oasis have done better in numerous other songs. - PositronWildhawk

This isn't their best but still it was popular - jmepa1234

The Contenders

11 Escape - Metallica

Metallica didn't like this song and it shows they didn't play the song live untill 2012 that's 28 years - christangrant

12 Pinball Wizard - The Who

13 Heart of Gold - Neil Young

They had a heart of stone on this song- *he laughs hysterically at his bad joke* - jmepa1234

14 Let It Be - The Beatles

Lennon disliked it, but as far as I know, the others didn't have a problem with it. - PetSounds

This was at the time when the Beatles Hated each other basically - jmepa1234

15 And Your Bird Can Sing - The Beatles

It wasn't Hated was it? - jmepa1234

16 Hey Baby - Deadmau5

He regrets making this song, and I don't like it either, mainly because of the unnecessarily unpleasant lyrics and moaning voice. But I'm happy with the instrumental version, and can play it without being stared at. - PositronWildhawk

17 Speed of Sound - Coldplay

It's a shame that they hate this song. It's really incredible.

18 Like a Virgin - Madonna
19 Royals - Lorde

Of what I heard, Paul really didn't like this song. Maybe it's the ending about becoming naked... - kaitlynrad11

In his last interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, he said "I hate 'Zombie Zoo'. I do not understand how that got on the record... Cause normally, I would have thrown that away. God we've thrown away far better. That was nearly a perfect album until the end [laughs]." I don't think it's horrible, but I do think it's cheesy. I understand why he hates it. - Gg2000
