We Hate Los Angeles: Six Songs As the Coyotes Prep to Take on the Kings

By now, your Facebook feed is swelling with posts with posts from brand-new hockey fans, folks saying "Go 'Yotes" when they didn't give the slightest damn two weeks ago. But that's an awful cynical way to look at it, isn't it? On Tuesday night, the Phoenix Coyotes beat the Predators and advanced to the Western finals, where they will face a new challenge, the Los Angeles Kings.

L.A. may have a bunch of theme parks, good weather, a thriving and diverse music scene, art, food, culture, and a high concentration of beautiful people, but we're willing to overlook all that and say the city sucks. Everything's overpriced, the people are mean, there's pollution everywhere, and the city planners apparently never have heard of turn lanes.

Bandwagon-hopping or not, we're here for you, Coyotes fans. Here are six songs that bash the city of Los Angeles.
