    I'm one of the biggest Journey fans out there, and yeah, I'm sick of Don't Stop Believin' as well. Although it was overplayed by lots of shows and movies before Glee got a hold of it.

    I generally avoid FM radio like the plague. I'd have to say that Gotye "Somebody That I Used To Know" song needs to be banned from the airwaves for at least a few years after how often it was played.

    Don't worry, be happy - played literally every 15 minutes when it was first out.

    What??? I love Adele, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Kellie Clarkson, Lady Gaga, FUN.

    "No one's ever gonna stop us tonight! No one's ever, No one's ... No one's ever gonna stop us tonight!" :lol:

    But I have to admit, even I cringe every time I hear Bruno's "Locked Out of Heaven." Sheesh, the guy's trying too hard to have a sexy vibe, but sexy he ain't.

    "Yeah, your sex takes me to paradise, yeah, your sex takes me to paradise, and it show-oo-ow-oo-ow-oo-oww, yeah, yeah, yeah."

    I like a couple of Adam Levine's songs, but I cannot stand him as a person, which is why I've never downloaded any of his songs. He's full of himself.

    Justin Bieber - thank God the major radio stations in my area don't play any of his songs, that talentless hack.

    Justin Timberlake - He insists upon himself. That's right. He insists upon himself. :vulcan:

    Not that I listen to the radio much and our freeview doesn't get any music channels, but I must whole heartedly agree, anything by Adele.

    There are many overplayed songs everywhere I go, but for the most part I don't find them annoying.

    Well, on the radio station that I listen to, I am so sick and freaking tired of hearing:

    "Freak Like Me" by Halestorm
    "Remember Everything" by Five Finger Death Punch
    "Signs" by Tesla
    "Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd

    What's even worse is when I actually hear people call in and request them. I just want to be like "Wait five freaking minutes and you'll hear it anyways!"

    Heretic! :devil:
    I may be gay, but both of those songs get me "in the mood".
    Fleetwood Mac & Stevie Nicks rock!
    Always love them.
    I agree with you. Perhaps, it is because I live in a rural area. We aren't a big city, so we aren't inundated by it.

    The best background music is @ our local Dollar Tree. I always end up tapping my toes or lip synching while shopping there!:techman:

    Personally, I only listen to one radio station: K-Love contemporary Christian radio. There motto: "Positive. Encouraging. K-Love."

    It's not a piece of shit, it's a legendary piece of crowd-pleasing genius, it just happens to be vastly overused due to its popularity at sporting events.


    They are great tracks, but they are all over used to the point of being annoying now. Especially to a huge Queen fan like myself.

    WWRY and WATC are the first two tracks of News of the World, my all time favourite album, but sometimes I wish they weren't as I am tempted to skip them to get to the rest of the album, heard them soooo many times now. It's nice to hear their legacy reverberating around the world 20 years after Freddie died, but there's a huge catalogue of their music that is mostly overlooked in favour of the radio singles.
