I’m gonna go with “Insane Clown Posse”.

Because grown men dressed as clowns, calling their fans “Juggalos” and “family” like its some kind of kool-aid cult… yeah, I’m ashamed.

@poisonedantidote That video has a confusing lack of ketchup, and a lot of vodka-cranberry.

ucme's avatar

Not a band as such, but these two fuckers certainly qualify as embarrassing! Hope the link works in your country!

Seek's avatar

^ It doesn’t. But it’s someone covering “Under Pressure” with Vanilla Ice – which is in and of itself annoying as hell to a Queen/Bowie fan such as myself.

No disrespect to the recently departed but LFO was pretty embarrassing. Even more so that they were from my state.

The Plain White T’s and Owl City. I am so sorry world

I would say the Jonas Brothers(US), except I’m sure that nobody’s going to associate them with me. :-p

If their “music” didn’t annoy me, I’d try to find a link.

Jude's avatar

I wish that I could switch. Nickleback takes it as far as the Canucks go.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

Yeah!

Yabba Dabba Don’t ;)

CMaz's avatar

Not from American. But…

Snow-Informer

And…

Dead or Alive – You Spin Me Round

Ok, actually I like these songs. lol In a creepy way.

Jude's avatar

Chuckie, you’re breaking the rules, dude.

@Aesthetic_Mess sorry to hear that. ;-)

Miley Cyrus, helloo.

@ChazMaz i love that song.

SuperMouse's avatar

I’ll go with Hanson.

Jude's avatar

@ChazMaz allowed.

That was awesome!

tragiclikebowie's avatar

@SuperMouse One embarrassing song and they’re screwed for life. I’ll have you know they are pretty talented adults now, as well as being severely underrated.

Seek's avatar

@tragiclikebowie I’ll admit I really liked that Man from Milwaukee song way back when. It was pretty clever.

tragiclikebowie's avatar

@Seek_Kolinahr Haha, oh lord, I forgot about that song. It was off the first album (which did have some embarrassing songs – but the youngest was 10 then – he is 25 now). I was pretty obsessed with them as a child.

Seek's avatar

Yeah, my BFF at the time was a Taylor-phile. That was the only song I liked.

bhec10's avatar

From Portugal I bring you:

Telmo Miranda – Made in Portugal

and

Shawn Fernandes – Tu És Minha

I’m really sorry world.

tragiclikebowie's avatar

@Seek_Kolinahr I will freely admit I was also a Taylor-phile for the better part of my teenage years.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

This is shameful
I want to beat the hell out of their eyebrows XD

CMaz's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille – That is another one of those songs that I… Love… Hate.
Too creepy.

downtide's avatar

The Darkness I actually saw them live. It was the campest, most overblown and yet also amazing thing I’ve ever witnessed.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Such a shame, because their father was honestly talented.

CMaz's avatar

They being a couple of douches.

MissAnthrope's avatar

David Hasselhoff

I mean, if that isn’t embarrassing, I don’t know what is.

CMaz's avatar

@MissAnthrope – Yea, that sure takes the cake. LOL

And…

OpryLeigh's avatar

@downtide I used to love The Darkness! Saw them in concert twice.

Jude's avatar

“My art will go on..”

deni's avatar

i keep meaning to sing a Celine Dion song at karaoke…

diavolobella's avatar

@MissAnthrope I watched that….and I threw up a little.

diavolobella's avatar

@downtide The Darkness crack me up. I love it in the movie “Bridget Jones Diary” when Hugh Grant and Colin Firth fight to “I Believe in a Thing Called Love”.

MissAnthrope's avatar

@diavolobella – Ooga chaka..

(sadly, I had that song stuck in my head all day after posting that, ha)

Seek's avatar

I’m dying for someone to post “Dschinghis Khan”. Where is @Mattbrowne when I need him?

Seek's avatar

Eff it. I’m taking it upon myself. I’m sure I can trace my ancestry back to Germany at some point.

MOSKAU!

tragiclikebowie's avatar

@Seek_Kolinahr But I LOVE Dschingis Khan!

Seek's avatar

Me too! But you have to admit that 1970s German-pretending-to-be-Russian disco-dancing Power Rangers are pretty damn embarrassing.

tragiclikebowie's avatar

And yet… so awesome.

CMaz's avatar

The Germans are so wacky. ;-)
