Which "Achy Breaky Song" artists do you like?

Check all that apply.

I've always felt that the Bee Gees were an odd inclusion. I think they were selected as a general representative for disco but songs like "Stayin' Alive" have always been pretty popular, and the disco years make up just a small percentage of their fantastic career. The ABBA reference makes more sense, because they (unfairly) remain a bit of a guilty pleasure punchline for a lot of people, but if I hear "Waterloo," I'm gonna crank it up and sing along. The rest of them? Yeah, we're in blow up my radio territory there.

I pretty much agree with you - I love ABBA and the Bee Gees!

Granted, I do have a few other artists listed in the song on my iTunes, but those are either there indirectly by being associated with an Al parody (NKOTB, Billy Ray Cyrus), and/or are included by virtue of having one or more songs that could be considered a "classic" for the musical era in question (Barry Manilow, Village People, Vanilla Ice, Tiffany). The former group tends to be a more painful listen than the latter, in my experience - Al's parodies are so much better.

ABBA is the only one in the list that I know more than one song, so I must vote for them I guess. Although I might know some songs of other bands without knowing - e.g. I know "Stayin' alive", but if you have asked me who performed it before I read this topic, I wouldn't have known :S .

NONE OF THE ABOVE should be an option.
There are a couple of good ABBA songs, but not really.

"None of the above" option added. And I will fight to the death anyone who doesn't like "One of Us"!

None of the above for sure, though Zamfir almost won out based on that video Jon posted.

None of the above, but I don't really have a problem with anyone here either.

But yes, I will unashamedly admit that I played out my copy of Vanilla Ice's "To the Extreme" back in the day. Word to your mothers. 8)
You have quickly thought up such matchless phrase?
