What music irritates San Diego musicians

We ask, “What song do you never want to hear again?”

By Jeff Terich
smoking2 The Proclaimers

A new feature in which we ask musicians to name a song they never want to hear again. 


Justin Cota, Gloomsday—"Run to the Hills" by Iron Maiden: I used to like this song... It's a great song, but it seems to be the only song that anyone seems to play from them. Every time I hear it playing, I think, I'd rather it be "Number of the Beast."


Tristan Shone, Author & Punisher—"Hey Soul Sister" by Train: If I say that, it'll be admitting that it caught me somehow. It's in my head. I don't need to hear that stuff anymore. I think when he says, like... I think he calls himself "gangsta" in that one song. [Actual line: "You're so gangster, I'm so thug."] It epitomizes Los Angeles, white-guy swingers. I hate that shit.


Seton Edgerton, Barbarian—"500 Miles (I'm Gonna Be)" by The Proclaimers: For me, [when I was] in Australia, almost every bar you walk into has an acoustic duo. No matter what bar or restaurant. And this is the song they would play that the entire bar would sing along to. It was just, like, literally, we'd hop from one bar to the next, and it would be the same thing. And then the next one. Like, "No fucking way! We just heard this six times tonight, and everyone else acts like they haven't heard it in years." And it was kind of like this traumatizing experience for this buddy and I. I would have these amazing experiences in Australia, and this song would constantly be playing in my head. [Affects Australian accent.] "Eh, they're fucking killing this song, eh?!"... So I think I've heard it enough in my lifetime to never want to hear it again.


Daniel Faughnder, Sledding with Tigers—"Yakety Sax" by Boots Randolph: The other day we had a show running late at The Che [Café]. We were closing out, and people weren't leaving. So, we put this on to try to get people to clear out. We made it through the song 13 times before everyone finally left. I don't think I need to ever hear it again.
