So, I wanna know wich song you think is X's worst. What should they never have recorded? Why?
And no "I like all of their songs equally" :P

I'll start. The song that right now think is the worst is actually:

White Poem I
Still, it's not a bad song! Though sometimes I get so irritated when I hear it! It's really not that special and completely overrated. THOUGH: the remix kicks ass.

Ummm...
I don't really have the feeling "WHAT THE HELL WERE THEY THINKING" with some songs, but there are some that I don't like as much as the others.
 - Easy Fight Rambling (Too.... HAPPY....)
 - Longing~ togireta melody (they made enough ballads.)

That's all I can think of right now.

Desperate Angel. I don't mind the song, but it sounds like it was ripped out of 'somebody elses' album.

I can't stand Forever Love. Cheesiest cheesefest that ever cheesed. (I like the acoustic version, though)

I don't particularly like any of their ballads but that one pains me the most x_X.

-Desperate Angel
GTFO Freddy Mercury. Srsly.

-Alive
This just sounds like something that would be played in a crappy Amercian movie set in a redneck bar.

-Easy Fight Rambling
This just sounds horribly dated.

Yeah, I hate Taiji songs.

I love all the songs posted here this far and I don't think I hate any X songs but.... Endless Rain live versions are just tooooo long and toooo boring to listen so I usually skip those when they come up in the playlist...

This is my administrator color.

Orgasm or Standing Sex.

Why? Totally stink of the whole "look at us, we are shocking and violent and breaking every taboo possible - now buy our shit". Sorry, but it makes for embarrassing listening let alone the fact that musically they are pretty trashy to begin with. Back then when it came to 'fast' songs Yoshiki only seemed to have one double-bass-fuelled drum pattern in his repertoire which he seemed to use for EVERY SINGLE FAST SONG. To this extent I actually agree when learned musicians get on his back about being a trashy player, but after making songs like this he only has himself to blame.

I have to agree with Fri to some extent. Taiji's songs, although quite good musically, don't sit well with me because they tend to come too close for my liking to ripping off popular western bands which X were contemporary with.

But seriously, if you say Taiji was/is copying western bands/musicians...so were hide and Yoshiki, I don't see the problem. Taij went for hard rock though, while Yoshiki and hide were more or less metalheads. IMO that's why many people find Taiji's songs in X so "unfitting", he's a bluesy/funky bassist and you hear that in his songs.

I also think most Taiji songs don't really fit that well for X but I still kinda like them ;D

Weekend --- It would have been better if it were a quicky. I like the live versions when
                   YOSHIKI plays the piano interlude a tick better.

Dahlia --- the 1994 live versions are pretty ok, but the final album version is not my
              style.

Rusty Nail --- a pretty decent rock tune. The only thing that annoys me is the fact that X
                   have been using it as an opener since Shiroi Yoru concert (1994.12.31)

I have to agree,i can´t listen it much,it hurts me,because everytime i listen Forever Love I remember to hide´s funeral and I start cry...everytime without exceptions´...Maybe I´m crazy,but I can´t help it

It's not that I hate any of their songs, but there are some I don't like that much. Numero Uno on that list is Easy Fight Rambling
, this song just doesn't do it for me.

Concerning White Poem I, I can't say that I think it's the worst song, but it definetely sounds more like VUK than X Japan to me.
I won't add this to my "worst" list, though.

Well, I certainly don't hate any of their songs... Hell, I hardly dislike any of them.

X Japan have a few different sounds, so what someone might consider their worst song, another might consider their best.

I've always felt like White Poem was kind of a filler, so I sometimes skip it. It's pretty, though...
At first I didn't like Endless Rain all too much because I thought it was cheese-rific, but it's really grown on me the last few months.

Awww, what's with all the hate on Easy Fight Rambling and Taiji songs? They're cheerier, yes, but god knows I want something fun and happy after listening to Yoshiki's depressing music. When "Des-per-ate Ang-el!!" comes on, it's a relief to hear something cheerful for once.

Uhm...
Phantom of Guilt is kind of lacking, I think, but it's still a killer song. Again, depends on your taste.


GARBAGE DAY!
