The Worst Song Ever?

Every decade gives us crappy songs and the 80’s probably gave us one of the worst songs I have ever heard.  I find it amazing that this song actually received steady rotation on MTV. What is the song you ask?  It is “Fish Heads” by Barnes & Barnes.

Now I think the song actually came out in 1978 and was a favorite of Dr. Demento’s radio show, but that doesn’t help its case for me.  Even knowing that actor, Bill Paxton, was the appeared in the video still doesn’t help.  I think I saw somewhere he was also the director. That just makes me think less of Bill Paxton (that and Twister didn’t help).

I know this was a comedy bit, but it is so gawd awful.  I can’t find one redeeming thing about this song.   Maybe I am too dense to be in on the joke.  See what you think and if you don’t die from a brain hemorrhage, let me know your thoughts.

“Fish Heads”

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum

In the morning,
Laughing happy fish heads,
In the evening,
Floating in the soup,

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum

Ask a fish head,
Anything you want to,
They won’t answer,
They can’t talk

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum

I took a fish head,
Out to see a movie,
Didn’t have to pay
To get it in

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum

They cant play baseball,
They dont wear sweaters,
There not good dancers,
They dont play drums

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum

Roly poly fish heads are never seen
Drinking cappucino in Italian resturants,
With oriental women, yeah

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum, (yum!)

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum,

Yea..

  1. LOL, it’s totally awful and painful to listen to. My pick for the worst song ever – a tie actually, since there are two by the same artist – are “Boom Boom Pow” and “Imma Be” from the Black-Eyed Peas. Both were massive #1 hits, which makes them all the more loathsome to me. The lyrics are stupid and Fergie’s vocals are like nails on a chalkboard to me. At least “Fish Heads” was meant to be a joke, whereas these were not. Never have been a fan of the BEP, though I do really like “I Gotta Feeling.”

  2. I’d take a truckload of Fish Heads over anything from the ouevre of Bieber. I also reserve a special black hate for Achy Breaky Heart, and a seething writhing hate for all of those crap dance hits like Who Let The Dogs Out and Whoomp There It Is.

    And then there’s the Macarena…

    1. All of those are extremely awful and could easily be right up there. The dance craze songs are some of the absolute worse. Nothing worse than going to a party/wedding and they break out the Macarena.

          1. Throw in Gangnam Style, I Am A Gummy Bear, Barbie Girl, Love Fool, I Like To Move It, Rebecca Black’s Friday, Ice Ice Baby, Snow’s Informer, Call Me Maybe, and all those boy bands like New Kids and Backstreet and Directionless and whatever and you could destroy all reason as well.

  3. LOL – this song was played on the “Doctor Demento” radio show, along with every hit by “Weird Al” Yankovic and a few others. I loved it then, and love it still.
