Smells Like Teen Spirit. May have been iconic for the time but it doesn't really hold up.

Also, that Grease Megamix has to be the most cringe-worthy piece of music ever created.

At least until I'm A Celebrity premieres, I'm never going to be able to get Summer Holiday by Cliff Richards out of my head. At the moment, it's getting a run every five minutes on Channel 10

Re; Livin on a Prayer Alice Cooper's Poison is another traumatisingly enduring ear worm from Desmond Child.

Interesting career for Alice Cooper, started out associating with Frank Zappa, then Bob Ezrin, then alcoholism, then 80's hairband stuff. On his last album he did a song with Ke$ha.

Hey Ya probably fits into this category now too. As much as Bohemian Rhapsody is a great piece of music, I'll be more than happy if I somehow never hear it again.
Don't mind the actual song. The hipster 'ironic' acoustic covers can go jump though. HATE that Missy Higgins pseudo-brit accent all those "Let's cover this song on guitar/piano, slow down the tempo, and sing like I'm heroin for a car ad" people use.

Sarah Blasko's cover can **** right off and burn in hell.

Songs done to death by guitar players and songs (as a guitar player) I am over people wanting me to cover:

WIsh you were here (Love this song, it's a classic, but come on surely people know more than this? I'm over it)
Stairway to Heaven (Classic, but please leave me alone about it)
American Pie (Yes I know the lyrics, yes I know you do, but lets not please)
Wonderwall (It's shit)

Not sure if 'done to death' is the right term, but I don't think anyone gained anything from listening to a KISS song more than once.

On a similar note, brown-eyed girl seems to be up there as a "beginner on open mic night" staple.
