If there was one song that could make you go crazy by being played on repeat, what would it be? "Call Me Maybe"? "Friday"? Since the days of "Who Let The Dogs Out," high schools have been using annoying pop songs as tried-and-true torture devices for their students. And as final exam time arises this year, one high school chose Justin Bieber's "Baby" as its top-40 hit of choice for a "Stop the Song" campaign.

A student posted a photo of a campaign flyer to Reddit yesterday, along with the caption, "I saw this at my school. FML." The flyer says that starting on December 3, the school will play "Baby" by Justin Bieber on repeat in the hallways between classes until the students raise $1,000. Scroll down to view the full photo.

One commenter commiserated, looking back on their own teenage years when their school did the same thing: "our school did that with 'mmm Bop' and it was called 'stop the bop.'"

In a different type of "stop the song" plea, alternative rock band Silversun Pickups recently filed a cease-and-desist request against that Mitt Romney after he used their song "Panic Switch" at a campaign event in North Carolina.

What song would you be most annoyed to hear on repeat in the hallways? Do you think the campaign will be successful? Tell us in the comments below or tweet your #stopthesong ideas @HuffPostTeen!
