most irritating 'anthem'?

Post by squatski » Wed Aug 15, 2007 3:01 pm

I know it's a bit of a negative thread, but I am interested to know what your irritating 'anthem' is?

mine is Compnded by edge1, I liked it at first but now the main riffs just really annoys me because I hear it too much in sets.

Without a shadow of a doubt, Raving I'm Raving.

Funnily enough, Edge 1 is the one really caned anthem, that I will never stop loving, but there you go! :)

Most irritating one for me is the Whitney Tune, but not because of it being played too much, it's to do with those out of time breaks in it...totally does my head in whenever i hear it.
It's not too bad when the 4 beat comes in cos it kinda masks it, but up until that bit i can't stand it.

For me it's got to be "Anthem" by N-Joi - annoys the t-t-t-tits off me.

Edge1 is pretty annoying, I'll admit. But I don't hate it and it was a great track at the time.

'31 seconds' RG? Is it an anthem? It's shite.

Nookie - Gonna Be Alright... nearly puked in my lap a few years ago when some prat decided to play it whilst I was cooked on acid. Absolute gash.

Seems to be on all the jungle cds & played out loads (as far as I'm aware) so would imagine it'd be classed as one... just not one I like :)

that annoys the hell out of me too. I just mix it out before that bit comes in, cos aside from sounding gash it always annoys me, like any out of time tune really. then again i usually just avoid the whole problem by playing "Tears" ;)

oh and 31 Seconds is definitely an anthem! Anthem is about popularity after all and it is stupidly popular even today. I have to admit, I don't know why, I really don't think it's that special.

Convert - Nightbird

That and that horrible 'Time For The Guru' tune by Guru Josh

Bombscare, by a mile. On A Ragga Tip is bollocks too.

I don't mind Edge 1. In fact I heard it all the way through for the first time in years the other day, having done my best to avoid it, and I enjoyed it. I forgot how much actually goes on in that tune, particularly compared other anthems (see above...).
