most unwanted

I ran across this at boingboing: the world’s most unwanted song. The link describes the methodology, but in summary some people worked out what kinds of music (cowboy, holiday, elevator, jingles etc) and what instruments (bagpipes, accordions, sopranos) people least like to listen to, and jammed it together into a 25 minute epic. It’s strangely not quite as bad as you would expect, but even so I challenge you to make it through the whole thing.

Here’s the song.

Update: This American Life has an old episode about this here.

    That is hilarious. Does sound like something by They Might Be Giants though…
