Default What would cause a loud screeching sound on my front left tire?

I drive a 1993 Honda Accord, and just recently my front left tire started to make a screeching sound when I would back up. Now the screeching happens when I back up as well as when I'm driving, but it stops when I break. The car doesn't appear to have anything lose. Does anyone know what could be the problem?

brake pads are worn, or theres something stuck rubbing the rotor.

I'd start by looking for anything that may be loose and checking to make sure there's no bent metal rubbing the rotor. Also pull the tire off and check the brake pads and ensure that they are seated properly as well as the caliper. Look for any foreign objects that may have gotten onto the rotor/stuck around the caliper that may be causing the noise; there's a lot of road debris out there. You can try replacing the pads if you can't figure out the problem but I don't think it's the pads because brake pad wear is usually indicated by a screeching noise that occurs during breaking not normal driving conditions as you stated.
