These are the songs that make you roll your eyes in theaters, 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.

    A feel-good jam that has become the staple turn-around song for the second half of trailers where a movie's central conflict is being introduced, but a comedic presence is going to either resolve that conflict or learn to deal with it.

    This song is cheesy and is featured in a lot of "hey, you know what? I feel good," moments in film and film trailers.

    This song should have been retired after that awesome out-of-nowhere dance scene in 500 Days of Summer because it actually managed to use the tune perfectly by playing on its cliche status (without using it in an annoyingly).

    Now please die, song. Forever.

    The song starts playing at about 1:20 into this trailer.
