Village Voice Calls Counting Crows' and Vanessa Carlton's Cover of "Big Yellow Taxi" Most Annoying Song of the Decade

What Are the Most Annoying Songs of the Decade?

Now that's hostility — The Village Voice has declared the Counting Crows and Vanessa Carlton's cover of "Big Yellow Taxi" the most annoying song of the decade (with five fleshed-out reasons). I don't know if there was any one song in the aughts for which I could write multiple paragraphs of hatred, but I distinctly remember the songs that wore out their overplayed welcome. There's Soulja Boy's "Crank That," Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl," and James Blunt's "You're Beautiful," as well as those that earned my contempt for different reasons, like Weezer's "Beverly Hills," which is both annoying and crappy because it marks a low point in the band's career. And I would rather grind my teeth into oblivion than hear "My Humps" by the Black-Eyed Peas again. What songs of the past decade (or year, if you don't want to remember that far) are the most annoying to you?
