Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm Crash Test Dummies (BMG, 1993)

Performed by Canadian folk rock group, Crash Test Dummies, Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm peaked at #1 in Australia, Germany, Iceland and on the U.S. Modern Rock chart. It was the lead single from their second album, God Shuffled His Feet. The song tells the story of isolation and suffering of children.

Though obviously successful, looking back people weren’t super enamored with Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm (or feelings have changed). The song landed at #15 on VH1’s list of “50 Most Awesomely Bad Songs Ever” and on Rolling Stone’s list of “Most Annoying Songs.” It hit #31 on Blender’s list of “50 Worst Songs Ever.”
