The Worst Band In The World (1973).

The Worst Band In The World (1973).   10CC was christened by  U.K. Records owner Jonathan King who in a dream saw “10cc – The Best Band In The World” on the hoarding of the Hammersmith Odeon.  That was the cue to subvert it to “The Worst Band In The World” . . .

J Dilla’s final album Donuts [2006] is his magnus opus, a masterpiece. Two 10cc covers Johnny Don’t Do It (as Waves) & The Worst Band In The World (as Workinonit) feature on his highly-rated album.
