The Terrible 20: Blues Song Titles


This week Team Coco is in beautiful Chicago, Illinois - birthplace of Chicago Blues music. Let’s face it, blues songs have the greatest titles. “Smokestack Lighting”, “Catfish Blues” and “Hoochie Coochie Man” are just a few of the many blues songs scribed right here in the Windy City. Unfortunately, not everyone who plays the blues can be a legend, and not every blues song belongs in a jukebox.

Last night on CONAN, Jimmy Vivino and Conan played some terrible blues songs with children, including the instant anti-classic "(Don't Give Me No) Edamame." Below are 5 more terrible blues songs; we want you to come up with 15 more. Leave your blues song titles in the comments below or tweet them @TeamCoco with #TerribleBlues. We’ll pick the 15 worst, and post the complete list tomorrow.

UPDATE: The list is now complete! Thanks to everyone who took part!
