...Lamest Songs Special
We're taking a break over the next couple weeks from our Artist Top Five lists to bring you the 101 Lamest Songs of All Time. Our writers and readers were asked to nominate the songs for this special and we've compiled the nominations into our definitive 101 Lamest Songs of All Time list. 

Over the next two weeks we'll be rolling out the list each week day. We're starting backwards with final 10 and will be working our way back. Also to do something a little different we'll also be revealing one song from the Top 10 each week day in the Day in Rock report with comments on why each song was selected and came out at the top of the lame list. 

2) Shut Up – Kelly Osbourne
Does this one really need an explanation?  The deep intellectual lyrics such as "blah, blah, blah" failed to make Kelly a music star for good reason, she can't sing. If you are looking for a screaming argument against nepotism in the music business, Kelly Osbourne will surely fit the bill. It's just too bad that Kelly hasn't taken this song title to heart because let's face it; she obviously got her singing talent from her mother's side of the family. 

Click Here to find out which songs landed in the 81-90 slots and to post your comments and submit artists for the next Lame list. 

Wait there is more!
