"Horse With No Name" World's Worst iPod

It was pretty much unanimous. Everybody loves the America song "Horse With No Name."

The British band America released the song in 1972 in the United States, where it fairly quickly found its audience. In the spring, it knocked Neil Young's song "Heart of Gold" out of the Number 1 spot, and was then Number 1 for three weeks!

Interestingly, a lot of folks back in the day thought it was a Neil Young song, among them Neil's own dad!
