We may be mistaken, but it’s unlikely that any musical artist intends to create one of history’s most annoying songs. Yet, there are many songs from the last 50 years that fall into this category.

The Proclaimers, “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” (1988)

In 1983, Scottish rock duo The Proclaimers was formed by twin brothers Craig and Charlie Reid. They gained initial recognition with their 1987 track “Letter from America,” but their most infamous song, “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles),” was released in 1988.
