Worst '70s Songs

The Top Ten

1 Macho Man - Village People
2 Disco Duck - Rick Dees

Yes this was bad but so ridiculous it was funny. I was 15 when this song came out in 76' so I very much remember 70's music from 70 -79 and I must say that people my age or older are not putting some of these songs on here that make no sense on this list. Heart, Black Sabbath, Eagles, Blondie, etc.. Even Phoebe Snow. These artist are far better than any of today. Yes disco duck and the Village People should comprise this list but many of the others are just disrespectful. If children are placing songs and artists on this list what do you know of the 70's and how could you vote on a decade you have no clue about. You may listen to a song now but you have no connection to it. They are not your songs to even discuss on a list. What do you know about a time period you where not even thought of. Awful list! Toss it in the trash and forget it!

Who put all those heart songs on here?

Stupid and unoriginal failure of a song.

3 Cool for Cats - Squeeze

I love Squeeze, but this sucks.

4 Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd

What is this song doing on this list? This should be on "Best Songs of the 70s".

This song rocks! What are you talking about?

Hey, this song is pretty darn Good! In fact, I think it is a great Song! So please take this off the List!

It's a good song!
"Sweet home alabama,
Where the skies are the blue"

5 Born to Be Alive - Patrick Hernandez
6 Sunday Girl - Blondie

What has this world come to? Why is the LAST SINGLE from the phenomenal Parallel Lines on here?

7 Y.M.C.A. - Village People

This song is great! Why is it on this list?

Extremely overrated, obnoxious, and useless.Y.M.C. A is the worst song of the seventies.

8 Mamma Mia - ABBA
9 Like a Hurricane - Neil Young
10 Iron Man - Ozzy Osbourne

... But this was by Black Sabbath, not when Ozzy was in his solo career. I can't take this list even remotely seriously...

The Contenders

11 Sabbath Bloody Sabbath - Black Sabbath
12 Take Me, I'm Yours - Squeeze

Utter crap. Pathetic excuse for rock and roll! How the hell did anyone think this was good?! It sounds like it was played with a toilet plunger and two rusty dustbin lids!

13 Bemba Colora - Celia Cruz
14 Puppy Love - Donny Osmond

Young girls of the 70s could disagree?

15 Good Year for the Roses - Elvis Costello
16 Love to Love You Baby - Donna Summer

She and this song is not rock as everyone knows. The 70's did have many other genres of music and this song is by no way one of the worst. I went through my teen years in the mid 70's. I enjoyed may different genres of music during the decade. What's up with this list? Oh, It sucks! It smells of little kiddies! Donna Summer, Heart, Eagles, Clapton and most of this list. List BE Gone!

17 Thrasher - Neil Young
18 Afternoon Delight - Starland Vocal Band
19 I Saw the Light - Todd Rundgren
20 Me and You and a Dog Named Boo - Lobo
