    Petula Clark, (spits) the first bar of the intro to any of her drones has me reaching for my biggest mallet. Shooting would be too good for her.

    Mumford and Sons can make me smash things, or risk serious personal injury in my haste to make it stop, at any cost.

    I’ve turned into such a grumpy old sod that I can’t abide any music on the radio whilst in the car. I listen to 5LIVE, but turn it off at any mention of Catholics, John Terry or horse meat.

    Then I sit in seething silence.

    Robbie Williams every time.

    My mate still ribs me about the time we were in HMV and I walked out because they put Robbie Williams on. This was at least 15 years ago.
    And Robbie’s music has got WORSE.

    There are loads of others, but he’s a stand out.

    David Bowie – well the new stuff!

    Micheal Jackson

    Coldplay

    as for radio – Alan Carr…wtf is he all about? Giggling with some equally irritating woman just isn’t a well used license fee!

    Professor Green, sounds like he should be either an auctioneer or a horse race commentator.

    RUSH! Loads of fans on here, but I find their twiddly wee guitar wankery and lispy high pitched vocals the most puke-inducing load of tosh ever.

    The theme from The Archers for one.

    Other than that, I’m no big fan of the harpsichord or frivolous chamber music, but most other things I’ll listen to.

    I can’t listen to The XX either. Its bloody awful wishy-washy bed-wetters music anyway.

    But I read an interview with Call-me-Dave where he said that him and SamCam used to like listening to it when they went for ‘cuddles in the afternoon’. BLEURRRGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Too much bloody information Dave!!!! FFS!!! Now every time it comes on I just have this nightmare vision violate my thoughts. The bastard!!! I’ve made myself feel quite ill again just typing that! ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

    Apart from Justin Bieber. Get that shit right off the airwaves.

    Oh, and generally most boy bands. And girl bands. And a lot of modern marketing produced music. And that X-Factor rubbish.

    Petula Clark (spits again!) regularly gets played on Radio 2 and the odd advert

    2nd archers theme tune!

    Pink does it for me, same old dreary tat with power rock chorus, just makes me imagine a room full of angry divorced women in their mid to late thirties with bleached blonde hair with a coloured fringe and bright orange faces.

    Queen. Eminem (thankfully not much of a problem these days). Any X Factor participant.

    This seems to be the thread for this – anyone heard Michael Ball’s “The Perfect Song”… that really is unbelievably bad.
    A song all about writing a song. That really gets my back up that does.
    (it’s so hard not to SWEAR on this thread!!!)

    On the radio … ads… would rather listen to any of the acts above rather than ads… especially ALL the nanny-state ads… (it’s something like 30% radio ads are nanny state)

    TV… Gok Wanger, Jimmy “I like to take a spade to his smug stupid round face” Carr, Embarrassing Bodies, ITV full stop (except the odd Thursday night when the Spurs are on… hopefully Tuesdays or Wednesday next year) and John Craven who spoils Country File…. wished they’d put him out to grass

    (Edit… Not sure you asked for TV, but was on a role so put it in… and I feel better now, thanks)

    Coldplay. End of thread ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Its usually the michael bubbly , jamie callous middle of the road liftmusicjazz that gets me reaching for the sickbucket , that and keane, music to boil cabbage to in a bedsit

    Queen, U2, phil Collins and ….. whisper it…… Tina Turner!!! She makes my skin crawl.

    Not quite what you asked, but the shouty DJs favoured by Radio 1 have me reaching for the channel buttons, in the unlikely event that I’ve had the misfortune to hit the station in the first place. Zane Lowe, the Pound Shop Tim Westwood, for one. Actually, two, that self proclaimed ‘big dog’ has a face I’d never tire of slapping either.

    U2
    Coldplay
    Mumford
    Maroon 5
    Any band/artist who wouldn’t have a record deal/following if it wasn’t for their haircuts.
    Anything bland / songs that sound like someone’s spent 5 minutes on the lyrics.

    U2, Mumford & sons, Morrisey, Rush, Robbie Williams, Manic street preachers the list is long and varied.

    How in the hell did these freaks get so ****ing famous?

    Now I’ve had to add the XX too!

    In terms of adverts, this one is pretty bad.

    Annoying sparkly toothed sh*tweasel. Check.
    Evil corporation. Check.
    Excruciatingly bad. Check.
