    Rolling Stone magazine polled readers about which songs from the '80s people hate the most. There were plenty of tunes worthy of hatred from that era and decade of decadence, that's for sure.

    Here were some of the songs that inspired more hate than others:

    Starship's "We Built This City" topped the list. What a shock! Europe's glammy, keyboard driven "The Final Countdown" and Chris de Burgh's moody, broody "The Lady in Red" were also included. Wham!'s "Wake Me Up (Before You Go Go)" is one we take umbrage with, since we love to do the jitterbug!

    Men Without Hats' "The Safety Dance" was also on the list, as was "Rock Me Amadeus" by Falco, Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry Be Happy," Toni Basil's "Mickey" and "Puttin' On the Ritz" by Taco. Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" was also included.

    Which of those songs do you hate the most? What other '80s songs do you hate?
