20 Most Annoyingly Over-Used Movie Trailer Songs

These are the songs that make you roll your eyes in theatres, change the channel or even put the TV on mute when you hear them come on in movie trailers.

Some are actually fantastic and beautifully written songs that have been ruined by overexposure; some are inexplicably popular songs that need to die immediately.

    We have no idea how this song even came to fruition. Who thought this was cool? The song itself even starts out kind of badass (imagine you'd never heard it before) and then goes on to get really really friendly. It was actually a huge hit on Radio Disney for YEARS.

    But seriously, we have no idea who possibly thought it was a good idea to spend time and money and actually use their names, faces and voices to make such a stupid and horribly annoying song.

    Songs like these usually go away... songs like these usually go away! *Rocks back and forth* Songs like these usually go away.

    But not this one. It first came out in 1999, started being used in trailers then... and it STILL. IS.

    The worst part is that now any kids' movie with a dog and/or men behaving like dogs, or even just fun, light-hearted family films has this in the trailer.

    The ultimate one-hit wonder song, "Who Let the Dogs Out" can rape your ears in everything from "The Hangover" to "Shallow Hal" to "Rugrats in Paris: The Movie." and graces such trailers as the one embedded here, where it is arguably most distastefully used.

    Here's your token "dogs are on the screen so let's get the s**tty tropical dog song" moment from the "Snow Dogs" trailer at 0:50 to the left.
