Listen to it once.

This. I've heard that "finishing" the song will help your brain to get it unstuck.

That's what I do. Listen once, then immediately put on something else.

Every time I hear that McDonald's filet-o-fish commercial, it's in my head for days and days. Ugh.

The day I realized I have that song memorized, I realized that McDonalds must have the best jingle-creators ever. Or McDonalds is just particularly inspiring because that viral Chicken McNuggets song is pretty darn catchy, too.

OMG... I haven't heard that one, but that reminds me of the Jack-in-the-Box's miniature Western burgers one... that one was obnoxious, and I was glad when they quit airing that one.

If I need to make the song go away, I just sing it like Bob Dylan. More like "Blonde On Blonde"-Dylan than "Modern Times"-Dylan. Get that nice famous nasal-y twang into it. See "Girl from the North Country" or "Like a Rolling Stone" for examples.

HOWEVER, if you get a Bob Dylan song stuck in your head, then growl it out like Death Metal. :)

It depends whether I like the song or not. Sometimes I like the song and just hum or sing it over and over. But when it's something annoying (like the theme from one of my s.o.'s video games for example) I try and replace it with another piece of music.

Depends on the song. If it's one I like, I usually just enjoy it until it goes away (provided that it's not earworming me to the point where I can't stand to hear it anymore -- y helo thar "Kiss Me" by Sixpence None the Richer, which was played ad nauseum the entire summer of 1999 from every radio station in the world). More likely, it's a song I HATE, in which case I will do whatever I can to try to replace it in my mind.
