  Bad (song) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The song was one of his signature songs, and one of five number-one hit singles from the album of the same name.
The song was originally intended as a duet with longtime rival Prince.
The video for the song was directed by Martin Scorsese and featured an appearance by a then-unknown Wesley Snipes.

 Bad Boys (Wham! song) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The song was an energetic but endearing tale of a rebellious teenage lad's struggle against his parents who are concerned about his late-night activities.
Bad Boys became the biggest hit from the debut album, although it would be usurped by Wake Me Up Before You Go Go in 1984, which became the first of four UK #1 singles the duo would enjoy.
George quickly denounced Bad Boys as a song he hated, stating it was "like an albatross round my neck".

 Threepenny: Marcus, Stories of a Bad Song
Songs like that were "lies that life is fl and white," he sang that year.
They made a storm; they took the song's rage into the realm of abstraction, until the end, when there was nothing left but drum taps, silence, and a single voice, letting you imagine that this was all that was left, after the war.
It became clear that, beyond new wars, what has kept the song alive is its melody, and its vehemence: that final "I hope that you die." It's the elegance of the melody and the extremism of the words that attract people—the way the song does go too far, to the limits of free speech.

 Bad Songs - SFCommunity Message Board
Man, I've written a ton of horrible songs, but I think its like someone said in the post about writing exercises...you may find a gem of a riff or a hook...so in that respect I don't think there is a bad song.
I'm not ever sure if a song idea is worthy of attention until I get part of the way through it, and then i'm faced with the dilema of setting it aside, tossing it or because I've invested time in it, finishing it.
I suppose if a person is going to bother to write a song, he/she owes it to themselves to try to make it as good as it can possibly be, even if the idea may not seem worthy in the beginning.

 A song so awful it hurts the mind. By Hua Hsu
But some 40 years after the critic Susan Sontag made this and other observations on the good, the bad, and the in-between, the times have a-changed: Irony and camp have recast taste as an ethical shell game and we feel no guilt celebrating things that are, in the parlance of VH1, Awesomely Bad.
There are bad songs that offend our sensibilities but can still be enjoyed, and then there are the songs that are just really bad—transcendentally bad, objectively bad.
Instead, file sharers and intrepid radio programmers were the ones who more or less discovered the song and pushed it toward hit status, eventually forcing the label to respond with a proper single release.

In the clear Jamaican sunlight you can pick out the component parts of which the myth of Bob Marley is comprised: the sadness, the love, the understanding, the Godgiven talent.
And although it is sometimes said that there are no facts in Jamaica, there is one more thing of which we can be certain: Bob Marley never wrote a bad song.
Jamaica has produced an artist who has transcended all categories, classes, and creeds through a combination of innate modesty and profound wisdom.

 Sorted magAZine - Bad Religion
Brian Baker, Bad Religion's guitarist since 1994, discusses the welcome return of the man he replaced, the tracks he doesn't like on the new album and how the elders of Californian punk rock are content to let the newer bands hog the limelight.
Brett Gurewitz, co-founding member of the band is back, they've returned to Epitaph, the label that loves them best and that they have always called home and their latest album, "The process of belief" is, after a few years of forgettable releases, a fine return to form.
Bad Religion also managed to include Ireland in their tour plans this time around with an outstanding show in Dublin's Ambassador Theatre being a fine way to mark their Irish debut.

One song stood out and was declared The Bad Song, but, just for fun, I'll give you a chance to guess by not revealing the title until the end of this piece.
Of course, the song was a HUGE hit, you could really slow dance to it, it was probably responsible for millions of babies, and Randy Owens could buy me and sell me a few thousand times.

The song only played maybe 2 seconds of sound and the rest is silence.
The song is listed as lasting 2:31 but apparently it's 2 seconds of song followed by 2:29 of silence.
The tracks of mostly silence are kind of a pain though, especially when you are looking for a tune but are unsure of the title.

 Does a bad Beatles song exist?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
For one, their bad song(s) can be simply one that is less than their usual standard (if you are of an opinion that their usual standard is/was any good).
To end this explanation, the only definition for "bad" that doesn't fit in this survey is that of a slang word that means "good", which by the way I don't think is used much anymore.
There are some Beatles songs that I like more than others, and it's probably fair to say that they included some throwaway material on their albums that even they would consider lower quality.

 Prindle Record Reviews - Bad Religion
Most of the songs sound to me like Greg and the gang (I enjoy saying that quite a lot) were TRYING to make something slow, but just wrote some of their usual fast punk and slowed it down to half speed.
Despite the fact that Bad Religion had been around over 20 years, had different guitarists, been cursed with shitty drummers until this album(Brooks Wackerman is actually good), and is even now using effect pedals(I hear that delay), every song Bad Religion has ever done is exactly the same.
In my opinion TESF is probably the worst of bad religion i'v heard but im not ready to abandon such a fantastic band on the basis of this, everyone stop complaining and pray its not too long till the sceptical quick to call sellouts have another new BR album to tear apart.

 Songs that clash with the ads they're in. By Seth Stevenson
The rest of the song is, of course, an anti-war, anti-government, anti-rich folk statement.
It appears the original theme of the song was lost on the advertising firm and Sixpence None the Richer; the song (originally performed by the La's) is about the exploits of a heroin addict.
A prominent feature of the song is the phrase 'can't get no worse' during the chorus, seeming to express the British propensity for simultaneous optimism and pessimism.

 The Bad Song Contest IV   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
For example, the Bob Dylan song "Lay Lady Lay" would have easily won the Worst Overall Song, with 17,006 votes, except that I had to disallow 17,004 votes on the grounds that they were cast by my Research Department, Judi Smith, who tabulated the votes and who HATES "Lay Lady Lay."
To win, a song had to be known well enough so that a lot of people could hate it.
Other tremendously unpopular songs, for their lyrics or overall badness, are: "Muskrat Love," "Sugar Sugar," "I'm Too Sexy," "Surfin' Bird," "I've Never Been to Me," "In-a-Gadda-Da-Vida," "Afternoon Delight," "Feelings," "You Light Up My Life," and "In the Year 2525" (VIOLENT hatred for this song).

In the list its called "Midday City" but in the credits of the OVA its listed as "Dancin' With A Demon", the Japanese title is correct though.
I guess that must be the name they gave to the English verson of the song, while Midday City is the translation of the Japanese title.
Other examples are "Men of Destiny," the 2nd opening song from "Gundam 0083," and "Adesso e fortuna" the opening song for the OVAs of "Record of Lodoss War."
