Bon Jovi are not fond of their second album material and have rarely if not ever performed any of the songs in any of their tours

Lisa Left eye lopez didn't like the TLC hit Creep. She was against it from the start and never it liked it lyrically but it was a battle she couldn't win on.

I am not sure if she hates it but Madonna avoids performing the song True blue live because it is about her marriage to Sean Penn, who of course was the love of her life and likely may still be.
I never knew that Creep is one of their definitive hits too!
Definitely one of favourite TLC songs.
Though I imagine Lisa didn't particularly enjoy recording most of CrazySexyCool as her input was massively scaled back compared to their debut.

Mariah Carey doesn't like 'Hero', though she continues to perform it because she knows it helps her fans who listen to it and it's a given classic that everyone knows.
Mariah also hates 'Someday', probably her most favourited upbeat track of yesteryear. She doesn't perform it EVER. Nick Cannon specified she doesn't perform it because she can't stand it.

Kylie isn't too fond of "What Kind of Fool" from 1992.

Apparently Stevie Nicks isn't the biggest fan of "Sometimes It's a Bitch". Her record label made her record it for "Timespace" which she was against from the start. I don't blame her really as it's a crap song.

Cyndi Lauper refused to perform "Goonies 'R' Good Enough" for years because she's not particularly fond of it. I think that might have been why it wasn't included on "Twelve Deadly Cyns".

I'm sure there are quite a few. I remember Eternal saying although it was the fans favourite, they hated Save Our Love.
Yeah, you're right there. It's my favourite song of theirs. I saw an interview with them years ago and they said they hated the Orignal version of the song so it got remixed. The Orignal version is actually on the Save Our Love single, and of course YouTube. I dug it out for you buddy

IIRC Radiohead aren't too fond of Creep. I think it's cus near enough everyone knows that song and they have written better songs than that.

I don't think Stevie Nicks is very fond of Go Your Own Way, although that songs written by Lyndsey Buckingham about their failed relationship.

Brian May is not partically fond of Don't Stop Me Now

Pete Burns hates You Spin Me Round.

By the look of his face, probably because he's spun round a few too many times.

As mentioned, Radiohead hate Creep. For such a hit single it's rarely played at gigs.
I think Brandon Flowers has said in the past he's sick of Mr.Brightside now. Also heard Kaiser Chiefs aren't too fond of I Predict A Riot, nor are Kings of Leon fans of Sex On Fire..

The Beta Band disowned their first album, claiming record company pressure had forced them to compromise on the content.

It's their 11th most played song (260 known performances), though not performed since Reading Festival in 2009:

Apparently Nirvana started to refuse playing Smells Like Teen Spirit at concerts as it really annoyed how overplayed and popular it became.
Yes. And when they did play it, they used to deliberately mess around with it. Kurt Cobain deeply resented how commercial the song became.

Scissor Sisters frontman, Jake Shears, is not hugely fond of I don't feel like dancin' (even though it is their biggest hit)

Nina Simone got fed up with My baby just cares for me

Britney hates most of her earlier material, in particular Oops! I Did it Again and never performs it on tour.

The Saturdays mentioned their least favourite single is 'If This Is Love' in an interview last year.
Wow really?! I know it wasn't really a good choice for a debut single (Up or Work would have been better) but it's not that bad. I like it. Didn't ITIL chart at No 5 when it was released?

Morrissey has listed scores of song that he hates in interviews, including What Difference Does It Make? and most of Viva Hate.
Brandon Flowers has said that he thinks his early lyrics in songs like On Top were awful.

Blur hated a song called Bang from their first album and rarely performed it live or included it in compilations.

I love On Top! Well, musically anyway.

I think it's Brandon's solo album that was terrible. It was so boring! Oh great, i'm having flashbacks

Was gonna mention that one... very little guitar work for him.

Recall a show with Tina Turner not liking "Whats Love got to do with it"

Mariah Carey hated hero. She actually wrote it for Gloria Estefan but after the record company heard it she was forced to record it herself.

I've never heard about her hating someday before. I know she.doesn't like I don't want to cry because she had a bad experience working with the guy who produced it.

I'll try and find the interview. They were asked to name their least favourite and straight away Una said 'If This Is Love' and Frankie/Rochelle sort of laughed and went "oh yeah definitely" and then sang "if this is loveee" with screwed up faces (I think).

I thought I heard Supergrass hated alright. I think that may have been just at the time when it was played non stop.

Don't know if it counts but Noel Gallagher has constantly said the he doesn't like the whole Be Here Now album and it pretty much summed up what he thought of it when no track from the album featured on the greatest hits collection "Stop The Clocks"
