Question of the Day

What hit song, played on a loop during the height of its popularity, made you want to throw your radio out the window every time it came on?

The year was 1997. And, if memory serves correctly, I did not go more than 45 seconds without hearing Smash Mouth's "Walkin' on the Sun" for at least six months. I destroyed at least 87 radios that year.

Although none of these songs were individually as viscerally objectionable to me as was "Walkin' on the Sun," the Spin Doctors' ubiquitous "Two Princes," the Gin Blossoms' inescapable "Hey Jealousy," and Soul Asylym's omnipresent "Runaway Train" collectively drove me totally trucknutz for most of 1993.
