Moderate popularity seems to be a better option this time for James Blunt as his claim to fame hit 'You're Beautiful' tops another infamous chart. The single that went #1 on most countries' chart has been listed at #1 for songs that used to be enjoyed but now makes people want to hurt others.

A poll was gathered by RollingStones.com's Rock List column and Blunt's hit beat Black Eyed Peas' 'My Hump' and Smash Mouth's 'All Star'. The songs that are considerably new are followed in the fourth and fifth post with old pieces 'Don't Worry be Happy' by Bobby McFerrin and 'YMCA' by Village People respectively.

Funny enough, sitting at 13th post is Coldplay's 'Yellow' that recently brought actual violence to a guy singing to it. A fan of the band was singing the song in a karaoke bar when a woman reportedly said, "Oh no, not that song. I can't stand that song!" and made a leap to the singer telling his singing "sucked".

As previously reported, "You're Beautiful" also sat at number 1 in a poll to determine the most irritating songs of all time. Blunt responded saying "It's a huge honour to be recognised in this way. I am not going to take offence at the result of the poll - unless of course I came second. That would be desperately offensive."
