Subject: Worst Song Battle: "Puttin' On The Ritz" ('80's cover) or "We Built This City"

Written By: woops on 01/30/05 at 7:48 pm

BTW, I disliked Starship long before Blender listed "We Built This City" as the worst song of All Time.

Personally, both are amongst the worst songs of All Time.  :P

"We Built This City" is far worse.  At least Taco didn't take himself too seriously.

Grace Slick was creepy but not as bad as Taco.

one song is easy going.Taco sings about The Ritz Carlton Hotel & Starship sings about toughness in "We Built This City".

I agree...Video wise I'd say Starship was superior to Taco as well :)

I voted for "We Built This City."

I remember when "Puttin' On The Ritz" came out. I was around 13 and my friends and I would sing along, but instead of singing "Puttin' On The Ritz" we'd sing "Suckin' On Her Ti*s."

;D

No! i LOVE "We Built This City"! I'm too young to have seen the video more than maybe once on a flashback show or something, but it's so catchy. It gets such a bum rap and I think that's incredibly unfair - there are thousands and thousands of songs infinitely crappier than "We Built This City".

I didn't vote because I like both songs.
