Seconded. But for total torture from start to finish in every possible way: "We Built This City On Rock and Roll" by Starship. The most pretentious, unadulterated crap ever recorded. Mind-boggling that it hit No. 1 in the States and elsewhere. For a modicum of justice, it also topped Rolling Stone, Blender, and GQ lists of worst song of all time.
In the 'so-bad-it's-good' group, there's Nervous Norvus with "Transfusion" and "Dig". Mr Norvus (Jimmy Drake) had a short but intense life as a truck driver/song writer...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbhvZ2y1V80https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unKXCQEptZY
Lest we forget, I have long wondered how the nasally Yummy, Yummy, Yummy garnered air time...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4aQiFaCod8

I'll add "In a Gadda Da Vida" to my list, because I think Iron Butterfly seriously thought this was good. Probably the peak of the way-too-long stoned solo era—in this case both guitar and drums.The lyrics don't say much either:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RE6SXPZB-Qw
NO!!! You can't trash In-a-godda-da-vida it's one of my favorite songs that I re-mastered. I consider the song a masterpiece. "Please take my hand"

If you don't mind me asking, which release did you do the mastering for?
Supposedly the drum solo was done in studio and edited in.
It sounds like it, because for everything but the solo the drums sound mono and panned hard right, but in the solo not only do they become stereo, they become 'super-stereo' with all kinds of panning sweeps, starting around 6:38 and lasting until 9:30, at which point they return to the right channel except for the stereo reverb which keeps them from sounding too starkly mono.
You must be listening to an earlier vinyl release because I don't hear the drums panned hard right. It sounds centered to me, could be mono as you say, from cd. The solo is as you say.Take Made in Japan for example: earlier version has Blackmore's guitar on the right. The re-mastered 25 anniversary edition has it more balanced to the center soundstage.
That's a crap recording try this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIVe-rZBcm4
