Need for Speed Underground comes to mind. I really don't like hiphop/rap and newmetal, and this game, that i actually played a lot, is FULL of it..... I actually played it with my own music.. I think that's the main issue with lisenced tracks of very specific genres, even though they fit the game, not everyone will enjoy them.
Burnout 3 is the same. It's my favorite racing game ever, but I couldn't stand the licensed music and that fucking DJ for more than fifteen minutes before replacing it.
EA Trax sucks for actual in-game music, but I love that it tends to imply full support for custom soundtracks on the XBox versions. Burnout Revenge is much more enjoyable when you're hearing Istanbul (Not Constantinople) or Star Guitar during your races.
As far as NFS:U goes, I have a particular grudge against that soundtrack, because it was the first NFS I'd played that didn't feature original music. I've always been a fan of the more techno-oriented soundtracks from the second game onward, from the likes of Jeff Dyck and Rom di Prisco, and hearing licensed rap was a huge dealbreaker for the game.
The first Dark Souls has some of the worst music in a game I have ever heard. Not all of it, thankfully, but the majority of the tracks are either annoying, or tacky. And let's just say that as someone with a classical musical education Gwynevere's theme really drives me round the bend, and I'm pretty sure Johann Sebastian Bach has already placed a million curses on Sakuraba for his crimes against humanity. Dark Souls II on the other hand had overall better compositions, but they were drowned out by bad mixing. or Dark Souls III, FROM did well to bring in the composers of Bloodborne's score, resulting in a much more solid soundtrack to the series finale.

Ridge Racer for PSP had fantastic soundtrack, come on .з.
My opinion would be probably a very unpopular one, but Legend of Zelda (original one). Not really "bad", but very grating after a while - just listening to two short tracks over and over again, and unlike original SMB, they're nowhere as subtle on ears.
