And now the long awaited finale in our blockbusting countdown of the worst songs of the 20th century.

1. Mull of Kintyre - Paul McCartney and Wings

Possibly, no make that definately, pound-for-pound the worst song ever recorded. Any lesser singer would be excused for singing a jolly song about an island with gratuitous bagpipe action in the background but this was McCartney. The man who wrote some of the most classic popular music in history was reduced to dancing a sailors hornpipe to bagpipes and declaring his love for a dodgy archipelago.

Just look at the front cover, there he is posing with his wife (wonder how she got the job?) and some bloke with bad hair in front of a structure that may very well be Ayres Rock colored in with texta.

It never really got any better from there for him either. Now he's famous for chickening out of an Australian tour and marrying a woman with one leg.

The upside of it all is that it can be turned into "Mullet of Kintyre" with little effort and used for all occassions.
