I write concept albums and this happens alot with that. I've never really thought about it before,..and i have to say that I dont care if people don't like it.

War Pigs" by Black Sabbath is a great song, but they kill the mood by going into that goofy, sped-up riff at the very end.


GNR Civil War does that too. Amazing song but I was never crazy about the end.

I personally love the groovy outros. Black Sabbath had groovy sections in a ton of their songs, like Fairies Wear Boots where the groovy section serves as a bridge.

I made this mistake on a past recording. We had a song that was meant to be a Pt1/Pt2. Unfortunately, there was a weird note in the lead guitar so the chord didn’t resolve until the start of the Pt2, so we weren’t able to split them into two tracks as hoped. The part 1 was supposed to be the single, but when the two tracks were left as one, the resulting song was 7 minutes long, far too long for radio play. Our use of intros and solo breaks left us with an album where all the songs were too long for most radio stations these days.

The kids’ voices in “God of Thunder” by KISS. Actually used to scare me a little bit as a kid.

This. They break up the momentum and continuity and are really bad attempts at humor or bravado usually. Seems like that really started with The Chronic and then Kanye beat it to death on College Dropout and he even had Bernie Mack in his first unfunny role.

I don’t like snippets of movie scenes dropped into a movie soundtrack.

If I’m listening to a soundtrack, it’s because I really liked the music. I don’t want random dialogue breaking up the flow.

Example: the Leaving Las Vegas soundtrack would be a great jazz album without Nic Cage dropping in between songs.

1. Children singing, maybe in choir form
2. "woahs" and "ohs" are overused now (especially in pop)
3. Claps
4. Fake programmed drums

I don't like unnecessary intros. Songs where you have to sit around and wait through a sometimes non-musical sound collage or some other bull shite before the actual song kicks in. Examples:

Orchestras and string sections in songs by bands with no business using them. It's one thing to do it if you are the Moody Blues or ELO but otherwise, particularly in country songs--because nothing says country like a bunch of fat balding guys in tuxedos reading sheet music-at best it comes off as pretentious and artsy-fartsy. At worst it saps all of the life and energy out of a song.

Far and away #1 is wasted tracks on an otherwise great album with complete nonsense - something like "Wild Honey Pie" on the White album or "Interlude (Milo)" on Good News for People Who Love Bad News.

#2 Hidden tracks on 90s albums that were inevitably horrible like "Sick Party" on 1977

#3 80s and 90s dance songs that take a catchy 3 minute bop and extend it to 4.5 or 5 minutes for no reason.

I’ve always thought of that as a joke more than a hidden track.

Great album that I need to dig out, btw.

Hidden tracks that start after 5 minutes of silence in the "final" track of an album.

Auto-tune

I feel like most bands did this with joke tracks for fans, but there's nothing like the feeling of expectation that there's one last track out there that might be great (my wife loves the two hidden versions of "Belgium" on Bowling for Soup albums) and then it's just some stupid bull shite of dudes farting into a mic at 300am.
