Inspired by the Eagles thread, what songs have you once liked, that have been flogged so much that you just can’t stand them anymore?

Off the top of my head-
American Pie
Bohemian Rhapsody
Enter Sandman
Thunderstruck

As far as Hotel California goes, that used to be on the list, but I’ve mellowed to not mind it again.
Its strange, I have a few songs that I was sick to death of, that I have come around to again.

Anything Linkin Park since that's practically all I listened to from 11-13yo.

INXS - Never Tear Us Apart. Port Adelaide home games are not helping that.

Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing. Great song by a great band I'm just completely burnt out.

Before it was released as a single I didn't mind Under the Bridge by RHCP. That changed about a week after.

Sweet child o mine. The horse has decayed back to earth.

Anything off californication. It was entertaining for about a month

agree with thunderstruck

I love ac dc but that song has no melody, and simply isn’t in the same realm as their other stuff I don’t think.

I wouldn’t say I’m sick of bohemian rhapsody but Queen have 15 songs I’d listen to first

Occasionally get this from Better Be Home Soon. Love the song, closes my fave CH album too, but my god is this wheeled out ad nauseum as a cultural anthem, kind of song that shouldn't be heard too often imo.

Don’t Dream It’s Over is another one that can hit in the right spot or really grate.

Amazing song, but overplayed. Seemed it was sold and packaged to a number of brands and included in a stack of commercials in the mid-late nineties, although I’m sure there’s some selective memory at play as well.

Agree with the Crowded House thoughts, but they are great songs! Which was the point of the thread, I suppose.
I can’t watch either of the Opera House gigs without tearing up! Oh to be at those gigs, I don’t think I’ve ever seen crowds united in their love for songs as those gigs, especially those two songs.

Soundgarden is one of my favorite bands (see avatar!), but Black Hole Sun bores me to tears.
The problem with these kind of songs is they intentionally never get out of 3rd gear and run like 5-6 minutes long. There's absolute no peaks and troughs and zero payoff after you're done listening to them. Reckon Plush by Stone Temple Pilots is pretty similar, and a few later tracks on Ten have the same effect.
