A selection of tracks that San Diego artists can't stand

Iggy_Jlo
Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Lopez

 This is a recurring feature in which we ask musicians to name a song they never want to hear again.


Alexandra Faith Pratt, Soft Lions: "Santeria" by Sublime. "This song is a classic for most flip-flop wearing gals and homies, but it does nothing for me. Even when I heard it for the first time, it sounded like the 100th. The only redeeming quality for me in this song is the bridge, because he isn't singing."


Gabe Lehrner, 9 Theory: "Booty" by Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea. "While 'Margaritaville' and a few Bob Seger songs come to mind right away, I'm gonna go with a new song I just heard. I never want to hear 'Booty' because it represents so much that I think is terrible about mainstream music, as well as our culture. I can't believe Jennifer Lopez actually put that out as her new art."


iD the Poet: "Get Lucky" by Daft Punk. "I'd rather hear the Mossy Nissan jingle for eternity than hear one more bar of that awful song. Everyone trumpeted this song and album as genius because they actually used live instruments with their computers. They had the nerve to dig up disco and somehow make it worse. The future has arrived, and it sounds like the late '70s but with shittier lyrics. Death to disco, but this time aim for the head." 

Joaquin Hernandez, Cumbia Machin: "Probably one of my own songs. Just one of those songs that was a failure—something that didn't work."

Sam Lopez, Zsa Zsa Gabor / Stay Strange: "Nothing Out of Life" by Dead Times. "Listening to this song is like showering in broken glass. It's sick and depraved—a bleak soundtrack to human suffering and it unnerves me greatly. The song is a trickster. It begins lush and hopeful but turns ugly and vile. By the end of the dirge, you're broken and cracked. I never want to hear this song again."
