No mention of "Cover of the Rolling Stone" by Dr Hook?

One that would annoy me had it been played over and over: I'll Be There For You by The Rembrandts (Friends title track; awful song, worse show, at least IMO)

I'm surprised nobody has said what I thought would be an obvious choice. Because The Doors' Greatest Hits is on lots of jukeboxes I see, "The End" seems like a no-brainer. Just playing it 6 times will consume over an hour, and it's got enough spoken word, Oedipal screams and meandering organ that you can't just go with the flow the way you might with most other songs.

Late 70s, I wasn't 21 yet, but I was in a bar and in a foul mood (don't remember why). I put all my change into the jukebox and punched in Bellbottom Blues repeatedly. The bartender eventually came over to fix things, and I objected, trying to pick a fight. He gave me two dollars and apologized. I'd love to know what I was so grumpy about.

Lately, anytime I'm at YellowBridge Brewing (a local brewpub) I play Sweet Caroline and everyone joins in.

A friend and I back in college discovered a jukebox with Sisters of Mercy - Floodland on it. We got through 4 plays of "This Corrosion" (at 11:00 minutes each) before getting yelled at by the bartender.

You're a better man than I.

Once is about 10x the amount of that I need. Which is why it makes a good prank, not good entertainment. Pranks should be whimsical, not mean. Christmas songs not in Dec is whimsical.

I hope never to find those on a Jukebox ever, in the meantime if you remember any more like that - keep them to yourself - its you little secret, OK?

One time is (sorta) fun, but 10 plays in a row of, "The Chipmunk [Christmas] Song," would have me reaching for pencils to jam in my ears, point first.

Tis the season.

Since we never waited around to see the results, I can't say for sure that it was annoying.
It's possible the rec center regulars each time thought to themselves, "Hey, great! THIS is happening again!"
No. Just no. If I had been in the rec center and had known who did that, much non-hilarity would ensue.

That song is an abomination. If I had a time machine, I would go back and use a shotgun on the composer, and probably his parents just to make sure. And his dog.

A man after my own heart. As I said up-thread.

Since you bring up the dog, how about this version of Jingle Bells? :evil grin:

Hearing them occasionally is ok. Ten times in a row? Very irritating
For the second example, even once is not okay.

Hearing it once is like hearing it ten times in a row, very irritating. Who knew you could have an entire song by just repeating something stupid.

I like the cut of your jib, mister! Ouch my ears, MY EARS!!

The frenetic pacing, the prominent NYC adenoidal accent, the mindlessly repetitive words. Truly EEEvil!

Somebody actually did this many many years ago in a pizza place I was in with my parents and siblings. (Shakey's I think? it was too long ago). The song was "Seasons in the Sun" by Terry Jacks.
Just shoot me now.

My sister and brother-in-law have a favorite bar, across the street from which is a biker bar. Well, it seems there is, or more likely (due entirely to episodes like this) was, a smart-phone app that could stream all manner of songs to any jukebox with the same app installed. It could also let you see any nearby jukebox with this capability. You of course see where this is headed.

While sitting in their favorite bar and programming a couple of songs they liked into its jukebox, they discovered that the biker bar across the street had an accessible jukebox as well. And thus were the bikers in that bar that night treated to the entire "Muppet Movie" soundtrack.

I don't recall that getting juke play even back in the big Rowen&Martin/Carson Show days.

Snoopy's Christmas ------ of all the Snoopy/Red Baron songs that one still gets the heaviest play. Especially with the bells. Which reminds me of the Exorcist theme:

I'm sure you love musical info tidbits as much as I, so:

There was a 45 of Mike Oldfield's "Tubular Bells (Exorcist Theme)." I had it and was insane over it. The first link is not it. They took several snippets from the entire 25 minute A-side of TB and started over for a few seconds at the end 'til the fadeout. ETA: Should have searched first, here it is.

The second link is the B-side of the 45. The instrument announcing is done by Vivian Stanshall of the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band.

For your consideration, I submit "They're Coming To Take Me Away" by Napoleon XIV. It made the charts in 1966.

My Google-fu and YouTube were weak tonight and I couldn't find the A-side. I had the .45 as well - still did until a couple years back when I passed all that stuff on to the third generation behind me as they got into vinyl. The B was far and away always my favorite.

There's a Tear in my Beer. I heard an old drunk play it repeatedly. 10+ times. He actually pulled a chair up next to the Jukebox to replay it.

Whenever I would play that, my brother would yell out bogus instruments: "Comb-and-tissue-paper," "Ocarina," "Jaw Harp," etc.. The wank.

I worked at a pizza place where a certain really lazy and annoying female cow-orker showed up at the place with a date.

We proceeded to load up the juke box with "She Goes Down" By Motley Crue about 10 times over.

It's on the album 70's Jukebox Hits Vol 2, so I guess it qualifies: It's A Small World.

The dive bar next to my college taught me two things: 1) we won't leave at last call even if you turn out the lights. 2) having 15 people all select Clarence Cater's "Strokin'" in a row REALLY pisses off the regulars.

Reminds me a bit of DJ stunts. True story, I have a friend that's a radio DJ. When it came out in '99, she played Len - 'Steal My Sunshine' on non-stop loop for 2 hours before getting a call from her boss to stop. Surprised she wasn't fired

Good stuff guys! What I thought of, when I first thought of this, is when I was in college the student union had a 45 by Yoko Ono. On one side, "Wind." ("Who has seen the wi-ind [gasp] neither you nor I...") On the other side, "Don't Worry Kyoko" which consisted of, uh, screaming.

But outside of that one student union I never heard either of these two songs--and trust me, they were both super, super annoying even when played once. I just figured they were too obscure.

"Sugar Sugar" by the Archies was also on that jukebox. Also played for annoyance value only.

"Muskrat Love" is a definite contender. I had forgotten that one. So, uh...thanks?

It had fifty, maybe more songs that played repeatedly all the time. You like your Rhinestone Cowboy? When Punky was there we heard it at least 8 times per evening. Chantilly Lace? Ten or fifteen. My Dingaling? Every ten minutes. Fuck that shit.
