...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. 

3) St. Anger Metallica
St Anger was supposed to be Metallica's comeback but it drove the wedge further between the band and some longtime fans. From the abandonment of guitar solos to the annoying drums throughout this album, this first single drew a lot of heat from fans who wondered "what in the hell happened to Metallica?"

Click Here to find out which songs landed in the 71-80 slots and to post your comments and submit artists for the next Lame list. 

Wait there is more!
