JohnnywinterThat 3-sided Johnny Winter Lp, Second Winter? $37

Popsike tells you what your rare vinyl might fetch on eBay. Based on 250,000 prior sales.

No Bustle in Your HedgeRow?

The Boston Phoenix goes where many have gone before - the 32 worst lyrics of all time - but go with snotty style. Like:

THE SONG: Train "Drops of Jupiter"

THE LYRIC: "Can you imagine no first dance, freeze dried romance five-hour phone conversation /The best soy latte that you ever had . . . and me"

THE VERDICT: First we’re traveling in space all fine and dandy, then he starts name-dropping fads from the year 2000 as if it’s a VH1 special and he's Hal Sparks. Soy Lattes? Tae Bo? Yes, Venus did blow our minds.

Or, taking on my favorite of all time:

THE SONG: America, "A Horse With No Name"

THE LYRIC: "There were plants and birds and rocks and things"

THE VERDICT: What, did he get tired? Rocks and things? Try a @#$% cactus. Dirt? bugs?

Based on the headline, I was sure this was going to be a Lance Bass post.

No, the lyrics to any song in Jewel's catalog are bad. Something about brushing her teeth and making pancakes. I glaze.

Rim shot for MamaQ! That was a good one.

The first song mentioned in the article (the Black Eyed Peas' "My Humps") is, without a doubt, the worst song ever recorded.
