Billy Ray Cyrus wrote one of the worst songs of the 90s (source: ATRL) Yes, you love country music. But c’mon, let’s admit that some songs are just bad. Like, really bad.
Using the amazing tool called the internet, we’ve put together a list of the absolute worst songs of the 90s. Please, enjoy.
Shania Twain – “You’re Still The One”
Shania Twain had some big hits, like “Man! I Feel Like A Woman.” But she also had some flops, like this one, which came out in 1997.
This was her favorite song to sing in Las Vegas.
“I was doing a performance on a horse, and it really summarized for me what I was going after thematically in the show,” she said.
She continued: “I wanted to incorporate my favorite things in the show, so I would be around it every night and with elements that I related to very personally and directly, and horses are something that are a passion of mine. I don’t think it’s ever been done on a non-barrier stage, so there was no bridle, no saddle, just me and the horse, and singing “You’re Still the One.” It was such a fantasy come to life every night.”
Billy Ray Cyrus — “Achy Breaky Heart”
Of course, this one had to make the list. It’s become more of a joke than anything else. And this rap version of the song sure didn’t help the song’s image. Although that may be Miley Cyrus’s fault.
“Miley told me recently that she was thinking about my career, and she said, ‘Dad, you ought to do what I do,’” Billy Ray Cyrus told Rolling Stone. “She said, ‘When the world says go left, go right.’ And I thought about that. And I don’t know if she thinks about it, but when she sees what I’ve done, she’ll go, ‘The old man was listening.’”
Kenny Chesney — “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy”
Really? Your tractor is sexy? Not your best lyric (or song), Kenny.
This is uncomfortable to read and listen to:
“She thinks my tractor’s sexy
It really turns her on
She’s always starin’ at me
While I’m chuggin’ along
She likes the way it’s pulling
While it’s tillin’ up the land”
Tracy Byrd — “Watermelon Crawl”
Let’s just let the lyrics make our point:
“I was driving through Georgia in late July
On a day hot enough to make the Devil sigh
I saw a homemade sign written in red
Rind County Watermelon Festival ahead
Well, I wasn’t in a hurry so I slowed down
Took a two-lane road to a one horse town
There was a party going on when I got there
I heard a welcome speech from a small town mayor
He said we got a hundred gallons of sweet red wine
Made from the biggest watermelons on the vine
Help yourself to some but obey the law
If you drink don’t drive do the watermelon crawl”
