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 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

3 Wonderwall - Oasis

Oasis have done better in numerous other songs. - PositronWildhawk

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

4 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

5 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

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

The Contenders

11 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

12 Speed of Sound - Coldplay

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

13 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

14 Like a Virgin - Madonna
15 Royals - Lorde
16 Pull Me Under - Dream Theater

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