Musicians: Whats the most shameless song you've learnt

Basically, what opening riff, solo or chord progression have you learnt from a remarkably shit song? For any reason, either to impress a girl, feel like a badass, or through sheer boredom

My favourite is Jessica by The Allman Brothers (the Top Gear theme tune)

Ive decided, for no good reason other than I should know some disgraceful cock rock, to learn Bon Jovi - Wanted (Dead or Alive)

    Song for the Dead  by Queens of the Stoneage, if I play it thru without fucking up, I have a sense of achievement for about a week afterwards, the triplets at the end tire me out tho

    Outkast - Hey Ya. Not really a challenge as the whole song is only 4 chords, but funny to play.

    My mate could do a perfect rendition of Tiny Salmon. First experienced it when tripping, walking into a room to that was odd to say the least.

    Teenage Dirtbag on the guitar... and I don't know why

    But i tried to balance it out with attempting to learn Classical Gas the same day... but failed.

    Surely your on about shameful songs you know? Being as you'd be ashamed to know how to play them? Or am I wrong? I'll admit I'm starting to get a little bit confused now

    Just the cheesiest song youve learnt the most recognisable riff from. Like all muse fans and wannabe guitar players know the main riff from plug in baby.

    No joke, I can play the theme tune to "The Animals of Farthing Wood", on my bass. I'm not even sure why tbh...

    Star Wars, Wallace & Gromit, Indiana Jones, James Bond etc...
     
    Just a whole load of theme tunes I regularly break out when I'm having a trumpet practise. Not too shameful as a lot of my mates play instruments to a high level, and if we're all together they'll have no problems adding the bass and harmony parts.
     
    Has made for some quite jokes music based parties.
