I'd like to add (into to) Sweet Child 'o Mine to that also. What else can you not stand hearing chicken scratched at full volume in a music store or where ever?
C’mon man you pick up a RR Jackson V and not warm that bad boy up with Crazy TrainMan, having worked many years in guitar stores, I have a few songs on my "no play" list, but Crazy Train and Seven Nation Army are at the top of it. Dishonorable Mention to Seek and Destroy, Back in Black, and the solo to Hotel California. Mind you, I like all these songs, but for god's sake, learn to play the properly before plugging into a loud amplifier and proceeding to make customers' and employees' ears bleed!
Other pet peeves were the Sunday Blues Strummers, a group of middle-aged white dudes who would come into the shop every Sunday, pick up a couple guitars and proceed to swap the most soulless and overplayed "blues" licks you've ever heard in your life for an hour. Then they'd sometimes buy a dollar's worth of picks, but most often buy nothing, and leave the store.
I could write a sitcom based on my experiences working at guitar stores.
haven't been to a guitar place in quite a while, but in all the years that i went to them, i'm not sure i ever heard Stairway played.
