Rolling Stone asked readers to name their LEAST favorite songs of the 1970s.The list includes what the magazine describes as "insipid drivel" and 70s cheese.

The Captain and Tennille's hit "Muskrat Love" - about actual animals falling in love - is an obvious choice for the list. The Captain and Tennille, a married couple who are still together, played the song at the White House when Queen Elizabeth II visited in 1976.

"It's unclear why the Ford Administration thought that was a good idea," Rolling Stone muses.

No. 9 on the list is "Feelings."

"If you wonder why punk had to happen, listen to this song," Rolling Stone says of Morris Albert's hit from 1975.
