Thank You For Nothing
Q Magazine has named Duran Duran's Thank You the worst album of all time. Although I agree it's pretty terrible, that's a very harsh assessment. There are some tolerable moments: their version of "White Lines" was one of the high points of DD's comeback show at Webster Hall a few years back, and in a video interview on the album's press kit, and Lou Reed said he considered their cover of "Perfect Day" the best cover ever done of one of his songs. I am not really defending it... just saying it's probably not the worst ever. Seriously, would you rather listen to William Hung's album of covers, or DD's?
