Here’s yet another reason to hate the media: We’re making you listen to the worst song ever recorded.
This past weekend, a HuffPost writer found a ditty called “Fast Food Song,” which rose to No. 2 on the UK Singles Chart in 2003 for a group called the Fast Food Rockers.
Music is a subjective thing, but we’re pretty certain that no one can listen to this and not realize it’s a recording so terrible that playing it to others without warning might constitute a violation of the Geneva Convention.
The song’s chorus is annoyingly catchy ―“Pizza Hut, Pizza Hut/ Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut/ Pizza Hut, Pizza Hut/ Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut/ McDonald’s, McDonald’s/ Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut.”
We guarantee that anyone who hears it is going to have this earworm stuck in their noggin for the next 24 hours.
Although this song was a pretty big hit in jolly old England, the Fast Food Rockers were never foisted on Americans ― yet another reason to appreciate our British allies.
The British trio (four people if you count “Hot Dog,” a non-singing person in a giant blue dog suit who joins in the video romp) freely admitted to the BBC its music was cheesy. So much so, that the follow-up single was called “Say Cheese!”
We haven’t listened to that one yet. We don’t have the guts. If you’re more daring, here’s the link.
Please forgive us. “Fast Food Song” is the musical equivalent of the Mealbreakers gallery below.
