Live Aid hero Bob Geldof is no fan of his iconic charity track DO THEY KNOW IT'S CHRISTMAS? - he's branded it the "worst song in history".
The former Boomtown Rats frontman teamed up with Ultravox singer Midge Ure to pen the classic festive song in 1984 to raise cash for famine relief in Ethiopia.
The track, sung by the biggest stars in '80s British pop under the collective name Band Aid, also inspired Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie to write their own charity record, We Are The World - but Geldof has confessed he hates both songs.
He says, "I am responsible for two of the worst songs in history. One is Do They Know It's Christmas? and the other one is We Are The World. Any day soon, I will go to the supermarket, head to the meat counter and it will be playing. Every f**king Christmas."
And Geldof even admits he's annoyed when he hears carol singers performing the song, adding: "Sometimes I think that's wild because I wrote it. Or else I am thinking how much I want them to stop because they are doing it really badly."
