What beloved alternative rock songs do you hate?

    It’s always easy to hate on something that’s popular and/or overhyped. But for a song to continue its overhyped qualities for over a decade after its release requires a hating feature of all of its own. In the wake of the 90s alternative rock boom, there were a lot of great alt-rock bands and even more crappy ones, and some of the songs that were and continue to be popular are still baffling. The staff of Idolator picks their selections, which include "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails, "Fool’s Gold" by the Stone Roses, and, perhaps most controversially, Nirvana’s "Come As You Are." There are any number of tracks to choose from here, but the fact that Idolator has focused on the continued legacy of overrated songs is the main novelty of of the feature.
