LEAST Favourite Track from Each Album - 2021 Edition

To correspond with the positive version of this thread...

Rules:
- No b-sides or non-album singles from an era
- No demos, bonus tracks or songs added as part of a rerelease
- Album tracks, album tracks, album tracks! That is, tracks on albums. Eg, Motorcycle Emptiness is a track on Generation Terrorists. Motown Junk is not.
- No abstentions! Even albums you love need a track selection
- I'm asking for your LEAST favourite - that is, not the "objective worst track", but the one which you like the least, today

THB and TIMT hard to pick a track because the quality is so high
PFAYM, RTF, Futurology and RIF, opposite problem - many tracks I dislike and hard to pick one I dislike most.

It's a hidden track. It's on the standard edition of the album.

Then how do you define a bonus track?

We have had these definition issues before!

Yeah well, feel free to conscientiously object it's only a bit of fun.

A bonus track is a track tacked onto the standard release for a deluxe edition, eg Antarctic on Lifeblood. It is usually listed as a bonus track on the tracklisting.

A hidden track is on the standard edition of the album but not on the tracklisting.

Not just me who thinks so.

Found it difficult to find tracks from SATT and TIMT that I really dislike but I went with the two I probably listen to the least from those albums. Could have easily picked 2 or 3 from PFAYM, RIF, GT, RTF and Futurology.

Not just me who thinks so.
Working Class Hero just seems like an easy target, I'd feel like a Tory in 2010 picking on someone on benefits. Plus the thing about hidden tracks is that they're quickly skipped by turning the album off. And SATT is an album that has Autumn Song!

At the same time, Bag Lady is pretty great....

But the pedant inside me is screaming, it seems impossible to pick a side!

(I like what Muse did on Hullabaloo, they put a hidden track at the start which you could only listen to by rewinding the first track. That's some first class fuckery.)

Yeah I like those rewind hidden tracks too! Mew did it on their second album, and it was called "Ending" which appeals to my sense of irony
