    Ole is my #1 worst for sure. Followed closely by Sirens, Let The Records Play, The Fixer, Future Days, and fuckin' Sweet Lew.

    Ole for me gets a pass. I like the music to it. I try not to pay attention to the lyrics. LOL

    One of my favorite posts on here over the years was when someone mentioned that if the chorus to Ole said “fuck you” in place of “olé” that this would would be creaming over it.

    I've never liked the album version of Speed of Sound - that's easily my worst song. The demo version was more likeable

    And Sleeping By Myself should never have been recorded by the band, just bad

    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. 
    Pretty darn close! 
    Don't forget about I'm Open. I'm not much of a fan of Pilate and still struggle with PMPM. I'd like to soon forget the song Soon..(sorry, I won't finish the bad pun)...Unemployable never did it for me. Did you forget to include Sirens

    Yellow Ledbetter
    Sirens
    The End

    These are the only PJ songs in the entire catalog that I don’t like.

    I feel that I've asked this question before but I'm just wondering if you've always disliked YLB or do you feel that it's just been "played out" - especially as a closer - for quite some time now?
    Just curious.

    Totally forgot Sirens somehow. Unemployable is not good but not terrible either imo. I like I'm Open live. It is a pretty cool intro to other songs like MFC. Pilate is an odd song because parts of it are great and other parts are awful. Soon Forget is a song that has not aged well imo and I probably could have listed it as well. Plus about a quarter of Lost Dogs could make this list easy as well.

    I'll play:
    Ten-none
    vs- none
    vitalogy- stupid mop (bugs was actually good live!!)
    no code- mankind
    yield- I guess pilate
    Binaural- evacuation, sleight of hand
    riot act- crop-duster, ghost, you are
    self-titled- comatose, parachutes, unemployable
    backpacer- surprisingly none
    lb- my father's son, infallible, future days
    honorable mention: in the moonlight


    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    This is a solid choice as well. I almost went with it. Other than these 2 I find redeeming value in the others.
