The Ten Most Annoying Drunk-Sing-Along Songs

Mardi Gras is this weekend. For some, it's a reason to stay the hell away from Soulard. For others, it's the time to go on a bender for a few days. The latter scenario wreaks havoc on livers, arrest records -- and jukeboxes. Yes, throw alcohol into the mix, and sane, rational people lose all sense of musical decorum and inflict some truly terrible sing-along songs on bar patrons. Here are ten of the worst offenders. Keep in mind that these songs aren't necessarily bad on their own -- but at 2 a.m. in a room full of boozehounds, they signal that it's time to close out your tab.

10. Garth Brooks, "Friends in Low Places" That Nickelback has taken to covering this song is the least of its problems. On the surface, this sweetly vengeful tune is an ode to no-fuss boozing, with a plenty of kiss-offs to an unfaithful ex and condemnations of snobby elitists. Things only go haywire when you get a bar full of drunk people trying to imitate Brooks' country twang.

9. Sublime, "Santeria" Nothing says bro-tastic beer o'clock sing-along more than a Sublime song.
