Sorry if you're expecting some kind of commentary on France or the Royal Family. It's just another VH1 list.

But, I can't help it. I'm addicted to these things! This time it was the 40 Most Awesomely Bad Metal Songs of all time. Europe's "Final Countdown" is a solid effort, but fell short in the 50 Most Awesomely Bad Songs compilation, losing to Starship's (aka Jefferson Starship, aka Jefferson Airplane) "We Built this City." In the Metal Songs category, Europe reigns supreme. And really, it's no contest. As the countdown moved along, I'd listen to the Winger bites, or Autograph, and think, "Man, I don't know ... those songs are pretty bad." But as soon as you hear that opening synth line in "Countdown" you realize that this is no doubt, the worst.

Unfortunately VH1's panel of commentators on this one was not nearly as good as in earlier efforts.

If anyone is reading this on Saturday evening, VH1 is re-running their best compilation of all - the 50 Most Awesomely Bad Songs, tonight at 8.
