Some of you may be cursorily interested to learn that, after a small amount of deliberation, I’ve lighted on ‘Seven Nation Army’ by The White Stripes as my very least favourite tune of all time.

Moronic defeatist-descending riff + inordinate hype + style-over-substance + lack of either melodic or rhythmic elan + pointless retrogressiveness + bodiless look-at-me 'bluesy'/post-punk revival voice + heavy rotation on Radio 1 at the commencement of alt-rock’s high-Thatcherite dead-centre-of-mainstream phase + evocations of a spectacularly shite first year at uni = What ‘It’ Most Certainly Is Not ‘All About’.

Anyone else?
