worst album and song of the year

We take a break from our regularly scheduled program to announce the worst music of the year. Now, I am sure there are many worse albums, especially in light of the American Idol and Cock Rock growth. I mean, Daughtrey or whatever he is called was both cock rock and American Idol, so that should qualify him for inclusion on this list. Plus, Nickelback released an album this year.

However, today I saw an ad for Country Songs 4 Worship. I was subjected to Charlie Daniels singing (I use that term loosely) "Awesome God" (I kid you not), The Oak Ridge Boys (apparently they are still alive- and looking older than the Rolling Stones) giving us their Elvira-like rendition of "Come, Now is the Time to Worship", Rascal Flatts (the country NSync meets Nickelback) bringing us "He Ain't The Leaving Kind" (which I am sure would offend me greatly if I sat through it long enough to hear the lyrics) and a country version of quite possibly the worst Worship song ever- "I Can Only Imagine."

The worst song I heard this year was Todd Agnew's My Jesus at a youth camp. If you can imagine a cock rock Jesus song, kind of a Rich Mullins meets Nickelback or 3 Doors Down. he is attempting to be muscular and poignant, but he comes across as judgemental, shallow and simplistic. Apparently this is not a new song or a new album. However, judging from this song and what I heard on his website, it is safe to say it is typical of the artist.

You have confirmed my suspicions. When I saw the Country Songs 4 Worship, A few things came to mind...

1) Good God, country and and bad worship songs together?!?

2) Why do people use that obnoxious "4"? That was so bad 90's CCM worship.

3) How bad is Charlie Daniel's version of Awesome God?
