The worst music of 2010

by Albert Rodriguez, Jessica Price, and Shaun Knittel

SGN A&E Writers

2010 produced its share of winners and losers. From the horribly bad musical contributions this year, here are our choices for the very worst.

1) Christina Aguilera

Not Myself Tonight'

single/video

Aguilera is certainly not herself this year. The music video to her first, and only mentionable single in years, is a rip-off of Lady Gaga. With slumping record sales and a failed marriage, she's gotta be thankful for Burlesque. S. Knittel

2) U2 canceled tour,

supersized ego,

political ass-kissers

Does anyone care about what Bono has to say these days? Having canceled the entire North American leg of the bloated 360° Tour, I have to wonder if what hurt Bono's back was the weight of politicking mixed with paradoxically elaborate, wasteful projects like gigantic tours and Broadway musicals meant to be the most awe-inspiring (insert noun here)' in entertainment history. Maybe the rescheduled tour dates will show a little restraint as U2 should, as well. J. Price

3) Alicia Keys

The Element of Freedom

album

Once a force to be reckoned with, Keys sank to an artistic low in 2010. Plus, her AIDS charity project suffered from the singer's guiltless self-promotion. A. Rodriguez

4) Lil Wayne

glorified prison sentences,

artistic slippage

OK, already we love him, but who needs another pull quote from prison? J. Price

5) Weezer

Hurley and

Death to False Metal albums

OK, now it's just getting uncomfortable, Weezer. Put down the guitar, take a break, and come back when you are ready to make an album that people actually want to listen to you know, like you did in 1994 with the blue album. Until then, please stop. S. Knittel

6) American Idol

its worst season, boring

contestants, unimpressive

judges

Reality TV's biggest star-making stage booked its least talented contestants ever. And enlisting Ellen Degeneres' music chops' (??) added to a joke of a season. A. Rodriguez

7) Hole

Nobody's Daughter album,

unwelcome comeback

Courtney Love further polluted the airwaves with an album that reeked, not to mention showing her rubbery face on stage again. Three words: Give it up. A. Rodriguez

8) Toby Keith

Bullets in the Gun album,

plain stupidity

Some cowboys are sexy, heroic, and just plain American. Toby Keith is not one of those cowboys. In an age where gun violence and teen suicide is rampant, this ignorant, shit-kicking hick names his album Bullets in the Gun and packs it full of the same ol' my way or the highway' crap that got him verbally bitch-slapped by the Dixie Chicks. S. Knittel

9) Maroon 5

Hands All Over album

We never tire of looking at Adam Levine, but what we are exhausted from is Maroon 5's one-note resume. A. Rodriguez

10) Kanye West

My Beautiful Dark Twisted

Fantasy album and not

shutting up

This man will never, EVER learn to just shut his mouth. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is less of a comeback than a desperate (yet successful) pitch to stay in the spotlight with help from heavy-hitting music biz friends. J. Price
