Well, I don't think this has been done before. Title's pretty self-explanatory. Just post a list of songs you like by bands you generally don't. After that, post a few bad songs by bands you generally do. Here's mine.

GOOD SONGS/BANDS I DON'T LIKE
Nickelback- Worthy to Say
Stone Temple Pilots- Trippin' on a Hole in a Paper Heart
Death Cab for Cutie- We Looked Like Giants
The Strokes- Reptilia
Aerosmith- Janie's Got a Gun
Kid Rock- Lonely Road of Faith
The Wallflowers- Sleepwalker
Weezer- Island in the Sun (Before anyone flames me, I'm sorry, but I've just never been able to get into them.)
Blink-182- Another Girl, Another Planet
KoRn- Word Up
And those last two may not even count because they're covers.

Now,
BAD SONGS BY BANDS I LIKE
Sponge- Drag Queens of Memphis, and sadly a huge portion of their latest album.
Lucky Boys Confusion- Blame (it's not terrible, it just doesn't really stand out at all.)
The Beatles- The Long and Winding Road
Blood Brothers- Fucking's Greatest Hits, Wolf Party
The Cooper Temple Clause- Digital Observation
Foo Fighters- See You, Burn Away, Big Me
Hey Mercedes- The Switch
The Jimi Hendrix Experience- Foxy Lady
Red Hot Chili Peppers- Emit Remmus
Maybe I'll think of more. In the case of my favorite bands, it's more common that I either love all of their songs or else there are a lot that I find "meh" but few that I really dislike. It's hard to think of. Plus I need more favorite bands. :(

I have to say, you got balls for saying you don't like Pennywise, even on here. I personally, don't care.

Pretty much all of MCR's first album was good, but now all the hype about them is just irratating and makes me hate them even more.

AFI had a song in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 that I really liked, but I don't like them.

Edit: Bad songs by bands I like? Almost every Social Distortion song that isn't "Don't Drag Me Down".

Ok, the idiot thing was uncalled for.

What I meant was that people that hate them usually hate it, and Fall Out Boy fans hate it.

Yeah, but it was fun.

What you're saying may or may not be true, but obviously SOMEbody must like the song if it's ubiquitous and impossible to avoid (which it is). Anyway, why are you so knowledgable about Fall Out Boy fans?

Maybe his friends are fans etc...or maybe he is one...IN DISGUISE! :p

And it is hard to avoid , it is constantly on Kerrang, for whatever reason. They even have the MAIN article in Kerang this week, Dammit...

Although I do have to say , these guys are so down-to-earth..which is always a good thing :D

I despise all other songs by them. Pat Stump's voice is so annoying. Unfortunately my 2 best friends and my brother love them so I always hear them.

I applaud you for your recognition of this song's immense suckiness.

Oh, and I forgot to add that I like "Ridiculous" by P.O.D., featuring Eek-a-Mouse, despite generally thinking P.O.D. are really shitty. But that song is all kindsa gnarly.
