Hating their biggest hits

WHEN it comes to hitting the big time, no matter the artist or band, each and every one of them have a song to thank for their successful career.

Whether it turned them into one hit wonders or started them on their path to success, artists are constantly on the lookout for the hit that will give them superstar status.

All of these artists managed to find those life-changing hits but, just because these songs helped them hit the big time, doesn’t mean they’re fans of them.

Here’s the artists who can’t stand their biggest tunes.


Each member of Radiohead has, at one point or another, taken turns teasing their huge 1992 hit but none have been more vocal than lead singer Thom Yorke.

The singer has previously said he nicknamed the song “Crap” and despite being a favourite of their set list until the late 1990s, the band tired of it and eventually refused to play it.

In 1997, when a crowd in Montreal chanted for the band to perform the song, Yorke famously screamed back, “F**k off, we’re tired of it”.

After years of refusing to perform the song, the band’s dislike towards Creep finally seems to have thawed.

“It can be cool sometimes, but other times I want to stop halfway through and be like, ‘Nah, this isn’t happening,’” York told Rolling Stone in June.
