Bartenders Want You to Stop Playing These Songs at Their Bars

By Indulgence

Bartender Confidential Season 2: Electric Boogaloo returns with America’s best bartenders sharing the songs that make them cringe when the first few chords blare from the speakers. While many can’t stand to ever hear Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” again, other objectionable tunes include Chumbawamba’s “Tubthumping,” “Shots” by LMFAO, the catalogue of Garth Brooks, 1970s rock ballads by Boston or Lynyrd Skynyrd, sad bastard music by The Cure and many more songs. So the next time you go into a bar and want to play a song on the jukebox, please think of the poor bartender.
