Many years ago myself and 3 friends were going to drive from NYC to Daytona Beach (@1100 miles) for Spring Break. Since none of us had a car that would make it there (let alone get us back) we rented a car. I don't remember what kind it was, but my friend (the one who actually rented it) had chosen it specifically because it had an 8-track player. We thought this was hysterical because 8-tracks were already obsolete and none of us had any 8-track tapes. There was a 'used record' store in the neighborhood so we stopped by to see if they had any tapes. They did, and sold us an entire cardboard box filled to the rim with them for $5. So we started on our trip. The box contained the usual assortment of stuff you'd never voluntarily subject yourself to. Then at the very bottom we found the 1st Partridge Family album. After laughing our asses off for five minutes we agreed that, all things considered, it was better than most of the other crap the box contained. So I rammed it in and away we went. After 5 minutes we'd had enough. But there was a problem. The tape was stuck, and the player was designed so that if a tape was inserted you couldn't turn it off. Then we discovered that the volume knob was broken. I'll leave it to your imagination as to what our collective mental state was by the time we reached Florida. To this day I still know the words to every song on that goddamned album.

1st runner up - Any fucking Christmas song before December 1st.
