    Wow. Hmmmm. Aside from throw away songs- I’d have to say Let The Records Play, Severed Hand, or Johnny Guitar. They truly fall short of their potential. Severed Hand feels extremely forced to me. 

    Let me have it.

    Always, ever, since LB came out, the answer is only one for me: Sirens.
    I love PJ with all my heart, and with time I even came to appreciate songs I kind of really hated at first (Supersonic in particular, I love it now, but also Olé). Some songs are also not the best, but I can find positive or good things in them too.. for example, I agree with the person above that said Severed Hand sounds kind of forced (like, yeah, let's rock with a very cheap and average riff), but lyrics are interesting, solo at the end is great, I like the melody of the vocals, so as a whole it's good.
    But Sirens.. if a god existed, he/she would know how much I wish they'd never wrote that song. Can't really save anything from it.

    For live versions I would say Just Breathe due to the amount of playtime is gets and the slot it is always in. I get why some may like it but a little too much cheese with this one and overplayed for me.

    For years it was Just Breathe for me. I went for a cigarette when they played it in Dublin last time. The sentimentality used to just kill me with it. Nothingman was another one that I couldn't bear to listen to, but I'm not sure if it was the worst or just that it made me too emotional to listen.

    There is only one answer for this song.

    Leash.  It aged like a cut of beef in the desert sun.

  • PJNBPJNB New BrunswickPosts: 4,147

    Ten - none
    VS - none
    Vitalogy - Bugs plus all of that experimental crap that no one listens to
    No Code - Mankind. Just not a good song and I enjoy Don't Gimme No Lip a lot so its not because it is Stone.
    Yield - none
    Binaural - Evacuation. Parts of this song are just ok while others are unlistenable. 
    Riot Act - Cropduster. Just not a good song imo and a set killer at the shows I have seen with it there.
    Avocado -  Big Wave. One of the worse chorus's they have "Got me a big wave, ride me a big wave, got me a big wave"
    Backspacer - The album with the most duds imo. Gonna See My Friend, The Fixer, Johnny Guitar, Just Breathe, Supersonic,The End
    Lightning Bolt - My Fathers Son, Let the Records Play, Sleeping By Myself, Future Days are all duds. 


    Only picking 15 songs over 10 albums is a pretty good track record if you ask me. The last two albums I picked over half on one and almost half on the other. I am really hoping the next album is more solid.

    Totally true. I work at a restaurant. Every now and again I’ll have a table where 3 or 4 people order the same thing and 1 person will send it back saying it’s the worst thing they’ve ever had while the other 3 identical plates are completely crushed

  • My bottom five:

    Evil Goat - wish they hadn't played this live; don't need to acknowledge every song ever, ugh

    Bee girl - good with original intention, nowhere near a good enough song to still be playing it. Write something new and quality if you went that vibe in the set...

    Let Records Play - lame

    Leash - decent, not great when I was 14, immature and crap as an adult. Dump it already.

    Last Kiss - same as Bee Girl. Fine with original inspiration. Appreciate it was a success on their terms. But it's the song I never want to hear live.

    Besides that, Happy Thanksgiving. I'm off to buy some boots!

    I was going to answer Sirens, until this post. agree 100%. 

    I'm guessing this thread won't be long for this world, though.
