The Lyrics

Part of my "Shine Brighter" self-challenge. I know that I did a "I don't like this artist" parody for this challenge already, but I dislike One Direction for entirely different reasons than Flo Rida. Besides "Gibberish" was directed at Flo Rida's entire ouvre, this is just the one song by OD that I've had the misfortune to listen to in it's entirety.
I like my pop
Cheesy or not
But One Direction, the line, they have cro-o-ossed
Because they suck
And they are stuck
Inside my head, it will never shut u-u-up

Music this bad shouldn't be this catchy
I hum, then slap myse-elf

It's not the fact they're a boy-band that I detest
I jam to *NSYNC, The Wanted and JLS
Maybe the reason I hate cannot be expressed
But I know-oh-oh
This song is unbearable
Maybe it's just filled with poppy cheese
Though I can stomach nonsense from the seventies
Maybe I've just reached by cheeseball capacity
I don't know-oh-oh
Still think this song's terrible
Oh oh-oh
This song is unbearable

So th-this song
To me, it's wrong
I would prefer my gonads pinched by to-o-ongs
Maybe the guys
Sing way too high
In a bad way, Queen is awesome, can't deny-y-y

Once I thought that I could tolerate it
Now think it's worse than he-ell

Listened just once, now it keeps playing in my head
Why'd One Direction win the new-age TRL?
Five Justin Biebers in one band: a critic's hell
And they know-oh-oh
This song is unbearable
It sounds like "Summer Lovin'" from Grease
Could be an homage, a rip-off, if you ask me
I don't care much for Grease, it just makes me more peeved
This song blo-o-ows
Utterly detestable
Oh oh-oh
This song is unbearable


This was their first top-ten hit, had one more since then
At least for those of you living in the US
Down here in Oz they've had five, what the bloody hell
You played this? That's horrible!

All of their songs sound the same, yet they're a success
Although Ke$ha does the same thing, there's precedent
That doesn't mean I approve of One Direction
Cause they blo-o-ow
Ev'ry song is terrible
If you like them, that's okay with me
It's your opinion, that's fine though I disagree
But if I hear this song once more my ears will bleed
That I kno-o-ow
One Direction's terrible
Oh oh-oh
Yes, I think they're horrible
Oh oh-oh
This song is unbearable
TRL was some TV show or something that was the center of the NSYNC vs Backstreet boys nonsense of the early 90's. A pity that JLS never made to the US and The Wanted seemingly crapped out after one single. They're much better than OD, IMO.

Very funny. I always enjoy parodies of songs that are horrible.
