Worst Song Ever?

Music industry pundit Bob Lefsetz recently sent out one of his newsletters with Trailer Choir's "Rockin' The Beer Gut" as the main subject. Bob, in closing, had this to say about the song:

"This is a track that you can't stop playing. Not quite as good as Joe Nichols' "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off", but not every track is legendary. But "Rockin' The Beer Gut" was made not by machines, but real people. And that's what we love about you, your imperfections. The looseness of this track is its appeal. It's not about getting it seamless, but making sure the life is retained. Life, humanity, laughs, good times are baked into "Rockin' The Beer Gut". I love it!"

My curiosity got the better of me and I clicked the link to the YouTube video:

Dear Bob,

Your taste in music is awful, even bordering on abhorrent.
