I'll start.
Classic old songs that are given a new, slow, dreary make-over. Usually sung by some sad voiced, tragic sounding female singer.
They keep popping up in adverts and trailers and shite reality TV shows.
They're really doin my fuckin head in.

Why not provide some examples?

Ah, here's one!

"Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" by Marilyn Manson, perhaps the first of these things.



"Happy Together" by Filter, though it siffers slightly from McGann's description.



What noisy crap; no wonder rock music is dead.

You are safe, Bill. You still have not been "officially listed" as a person who needs to go away. wink

Ditto to Kardashians. Why do these people get any press coverage?

Also, I keep seeing trailers for such trash as "Honey Boo Boo, Not to Hot, Marriage Boot Camp, Love After Lockup, etc." Why would I want to watch such trash? Ugh. I wish shows like these would not garner an audience, but they must to keep playing. I'd like to know the IQ of each player and each audience member. (Single digits?)

Somewhat related - classic, old songs that are played over the end credits that really have no connection to the film.
Guardians of the Galaxy and others at least have some context in that some character listens to classic rock, etc. at some point in the film, but so many nowadays, especially actioners and romance movies just seem to have a random song at the end.

I don't mind introduction of the oldies to today's generation, but when it's just random, I find it annoying.

The Beatles did this with "Revolution", with great results... but then, they WERE The Beatles!
