The Daily Grind: What MMO musical tune annoys you the most?

Bear bomb!

The worst part of going through World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria is the inn music. I don’t know why, but that has literally always bothered me. It feels like someone was leaning too hard on trying to make that piece sound Chinese, and it annoys me. I prefer not to listen to it, which is difficult to do if you’re parking a character in an inn within Pandaria.

Not that it’s the only piece that I dislike. I’ve always found the Gustaberg music in Final Fantasy XI unnecessarily depressing (which didn’t help when it was the first zone I encountered in the game, since I started in Bastok). Ramuh’s theme in Final Fantasy XIV has never clicked for me. The cantina music in Star Wars: The Old Republic has always felt like a weak pastiche of musical themes, and I may be the only City of Heroes player who didn’t like the original login music. (The post-Freedom music, on the other hand, is spectacular; listen to it if you haven’t.)

I don’t think this is unique; I think no matter how much we may like a game’s music, it has that one piece we don’t care for. So what about you, dear readers? What MMO musical tune annoys you the most?
