Rock music started losing a lot of its momentum in the early 2000s as gangsta rap became the genre of choice on the charts. Plenty of bands had to do whatever they could to stay on the charts and make money, and so began a rush of generic rock ballads that stayed on rock radio for nearly a decade, with these 10 songs being some of the biggest offenders.

Fuel - "Hemorrhage (In My Hands)"

I genuinely can't even remember if Fuel ever recorded anything that wasn't this song, but man is that chorus ever burned into my memory forever.
