Top Ten Worst Songs of 2015RickyReeves
The Top TenXW
Crank That (Soulja Boy) is one of the worst songs of all time. I figured people would know better than to make another one. We got one. It's even worse.
First off, the elementary beat. I mean, Crank That's beat was awful and unfitting, but at least it was pumping with percussion. The beat here is so simple it's almost painful.
Second is maybe the biggest problem: Silento. He is monotonous throughout the song, appears to lack motivation to dance, lacks aggression, and can't even have the decency to rhyme things together instead of just repeating the same word over and over (Crank That was guilty of none of these things). He also continues the "telling you what you already know" trend which is false and annoying. He also can't even do the dances :-/.
Third: this is possibly the least original song of all time (congrats, Ice Ice Baby, you've been dethroned). Completely rips off Crank That, first of all, and copies dances that were forgotten, but at least they were ...more - WonkeyDude98
This is probably the most unoriginal song of the year. All he does is repeats the names of viral dances and calls them his own. When he's not listing other peoples dances he says "watch me, watch me, watch me, watch me" The rest of the song. What an uncreative pile of garbage! Oh! And to top it off, Silento sounds like he's 12.
This "song". Why? Just... WHY? This isn't even a song, it's just hot garbage. Silento can't rap whatsoever, he just repeats and steals every terrible rap dance under the sun. WHY, in 2015, did we need to be reminded of the Stanky Leg and the Crank that, exactly, and why did somebody think it was a good idea to write this trash (I use the term "write" loosely, seriously, it sounds like an eight year old wrote this)? Silento probably is the most talentless fame-hungry jerk I've ever heard. SCREW THIS REPETIVITE TRASH!
How can you call this not a song? That makes no sense. It is a song. You are just saying that because you do not like the song. - madoog

Describing a dream guy? That's what you do when you're a 12 year old girl, IN YOUR DIARY - simpsondude
Oh dear where do I even begin
It's absolute crap, easily the worst song I've heard in quite some time. The music itself is not that great. It's not very catchy, and the instrumentation is pretty lame.
However, the lyrics are abysmal. You can't even defend a line like "We'll never see your family more than mine." Is that supposed to be romantic? The best thing I can say about that is that I'm not married to Meghan Trainor in real life, so I don't have to live with her psychopathic behaviours.
There's also some really terrible implications, and that "kisses" line that is honestly so stupid I can't comprehend why anyone thought it was a good idea, and the fact that the song is built around an idea that doesn't sound mature to anyone over the age of 14.
No. No. No.
I mean, I didn't like All About That Bass in any way, but I could at least appreciate the intent of it. After that, Trainor progressively became harder to listen to, more annoying, and less of a model. In All About That Bass, I at least saw that she was encouraging people who are discriminated against because of their size, but unfortunately that was entirely absent from her next two hits, especially Dear Future Husband. DFH gets everything Boom Clap and Shower did right...wrong. It's girly but can't DO anything with that, has a bad message, and is completely vomit-inducing. I mean, All About That Bass and Lips Are Moving were pretty reprehensible, but at least they were catchy! This is absymal with little if anything to redeem itself.
ALSO: the key change in the second hook is by far the weakest key change I have ever heard. - WonkeyDude98
Can Meghan Trainor stop making music already? All we wanted was All About That BassV78 Comments
Lol! Iggy Azalea is really an alien and must be destroyed for the sake of mankind
Because Iggy Azalea logic, Rita Ora had too much personality (none at all), so Iggy went for Britney Spears, who also had an infamously lackluster feature in Scream and Shout, but that song's fault was mainly just being boring. This is arguably Azalea's worst song not counting that abomination with Jennifer Lopez. Where Fancy and Black Widow merely annoyed me, this song was not only even more annoying, it outright infuriated me, particularly the chorus. - WonkeyDude98
Why doesn't Britney just give up already? Nobody likes her anymore.
This song is simply unlikable. Is this supposed to be a female-praising song? "Is it true that these men are from Mars? Is that why they be acting bizarre? " It is a song from 2015 that tries to sound old. - madoogV49 Comments
Madonna needs to retire. Seriously.
Yeah, we know you're Madonna, so go away!
This is not the Madonna I love. What happened to her? To her songs? - CartoonsGirl

Wow, this song sucks. I liked it back when Rihanna was doing songs like "We Found Love", "Princess of China", "Umbrella", etc. Because they were catchy, but this is just terrible.
I agree so much! Rihanna used to be great, but now she's just fallen into the mass of swearing and inappropriate celebrities. - TheAlbinoWolf
I thought Rihanna couldn't possibly make a worse song than "Birthday Cake." I was wrong.
If it wasn't for Work being so good, then I officially would have classified Rihanna as dead. What even is this. The percussion is loud and plodding, the synth is oily, and then we have what sounds like a broken wrench grinding a conveyor belt. Rihanna doing a full-on trap song. Because 2015. Rihanna doesn't have the power to bark with force over this gaudy and creepy beat. The lyrics are honestly adorable. They try and portray Rihanna as this hard-edged gangsta, but given Rihanna's pathetic performance, I don't buy it. At all. This is a -1/5 for sure. - WonkeyDude98
This song is garbage. Did you get your money? - madoogV50 Comments
UTTER GARBAGE. The lyrics break the laws of physics. Literally, it isn't how life works. It doesn't help that the beat is a forgettable mosh, Manika is an R-rated Taylor Swift without the singing voice, the lyrics are arguably worse than Pretty Girls, and Tyga does an awful job trying to persuade Manika. - WonkeyDude98
This isn't how sexuality works. You don't just choose to go lesbian after getting tired of guys. You're born like that. The basic premise of the song is a complete failure. Don't even get me started on everything else.
Why was this song even made? Was Manika challenged to make everyone cringe? - SirSkeletorThe3rd
Go lesbian we don't care.V35 Comments
(sigh) Another stupid song based on a stupid dance. What makes this one painfully bad though is that it has a terrible flow to it. Although this "song" has a dance to it... IT'S HARD TO DANCE TO THIS SONG! Although the Whip and Nae Nae song is atrocious, at least you can actually DANCE to that song. It has a great flow and steady beat to it even though the lyrics suck, When I saw this song in the bottom of the top 150 songs on iTunes all I could say was "Please don't let this become the next big thing." Well... all I can say is that I should of kept my mouth shut. At least Gangnam Style had some potential to it. On the other hand... this song is garbage.
Whatever you do... please don't dance to this song...
"You better watch your self because I'm feeling myself" So am I. This song sucks. I saw some people in my Social Studies class doing the dance to it when the teacher wasn't in the room. I am gradually losing faith in humanity.
This is just as bad as Watch Me, because they are both viral songs that are most likely to be forgotten in less than two years. Also, what even is a Quan?
I like this songV47 Comments
This takes everything wrong with Rack City and amps it up more than 30 million times.
Generally, beatwork is used to aid a song's tone and mood. For example, Rack City. Boring beat with bored vocals. This? This has a twinkly, heavy piano melody running through the entire song, and Tyga still sounds bored to death. Dude, either make your tone heavier or stick to boring, shallow beats.
The lyrics are absolutely DISGUSTING. It's about his relationship with the underage Kylie Jenner. This is the only time Tyga has ever stayed on subject for a song (barely). How convenient, because this is the worst possible subject he could've stayed on topic for. Top that with the fact that he made no emotional connotations for Jenner in the song and the following line,
"She says she young/I should've waited/She a big girl dog when she stimulated"
Makes me wonder...was he in a relationship with her DESPITE her being underage...or BECAUSE of it?
The name of the piano ...more - WonkeyDude98
So, here are the things this song reveals about Tyga.
1. He's a creepy loser, obviously: He decided to get it on with Kylie Jenner before she became 18.
2. He's a creep on purpose: He has so many women he could choose from, and chose a minor. This proves how state laws can't justify how Tyga is using pedophile logic.
3. He's putting a lot of effort into his creepiness: Kylie Jenner was about 17 and a half when Tyga did what he did, so basically just young enough so you won't have police knocking at your door.
4. He loves being a creep: "They say she young, I shoulda waited/She a big girl dawg when she stimulated"
5. He wants to rub his creepiness in your face: The piano instrumentation (which by the way clashes horribly with the production) is taken from a song called Children.
Normally I request songs this bad don't chart, but of all terrible songs to chart, why not this? This is a confession tape by Tyga, about Kylie Jenner, WHY IS NO ONE GIVING HIM ...more - WonkeyDude98
This is one of the few songs where I'd seriously have to question your judgement if you said you liked it. This is basically the pedophile anthem right here. Justifying sexual relations with a minor with lines like "She a big girl dawg when she stimulated" is just creepy and wrong. He loves the fact that she's underage. And as for the instrumentals... They're sampled from a song named "Children". The fact that Tyga can't rap worth a damn doesn't even matter here, because the best artist in the world couldn't save this song. There's just no defending this whatsoever.
From the name of this song I thought he was having sex with a goat. Then I made a huge mistake by listening to it since I'm a risk taker guy. AVOID THIS SONG. And maybe Tyga? - AlphaQV23 Comments
The Rihanna incident was a few years ago, and Chris Brown is still a jerk for doing it. However, it's not the incident that makes me hate him, it's his songs that do. This being the biggest contributor.
The beat just sounds plain and boring, but that's a minor flaw. The biggest is Chris's rapping. If you were to hear the lyrics, it's another typical him; there's the lyric "run over pedestrians", which is just plain stupid and cruel, but there's no denying that the lyric "But I make that bish walk with some cheesecake" is probably the worst thing I have heard out of any rap song.
Overall, you'll have more fun listening to Barbie Girl in 25 languages rather than Ayo. 2/10. The beat was ok but vapid, but everything else sucks. - Swellow
"Freeway for cheesecake"? Where do you work at, the Cheesecake Factory? - RiverClanRocks
Chris Brown should be arrested and put in prison for life, why you ask? For creating this crap and for beating Rihanna - RickyReeves
That song is so annoying and crappy! It sounds way too much the same as Loyal (wich is the worst song ever) and the lyrics are talentless just like the two so-called rappers. I can't belive it's played on the radio while it has such innapropriate lyrics. They make Meghan Trainor look like a masterpiece. WHY IS THAT NOT AT NUMBER 1? - BlueDiamondFromNowhere
Biggest guilty pleasure of the year. 4/5 - ProPandaV17 Comments
Marvin Gaye's ghost is probably banging his head listening to this song. It's not a good tribute song, features cheesy lyrics, and it isn't catchy. Also the two wannabe singers. - Swellow
Even as someone who despises both Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor, I was not prepared for this. This song has forever stained Marvin Gaye's legacy. Now I can't even enjoy "Let's Get It On" anymore because it reminds me of this abomination.
Only thing okay in the song is Charlie Puth's voice... Meghan Trainor is trash like always... Lyrics, music, composition are cheap and the music video is really terrible!
Marvin Gaye is wishing he were still alive so he could kill himself again. - TheAwesomeBrosVotesV35 Comments
The Band Perry is really talented, but this song is a colossal disappointment. The lyrics are filled with tons of pseudo inspirational cliches, the chorus is very irritating, and the song fails to inspire as a whole. This song is a worse version of Fight Song. How did this band go from songs like If I Die Young and Better Dig Two to this so quickly? - NiktheWiz
It sounds like he was trying to make a song about not cheating, in the same vein as Andy Grammer's "Honey I'm Good", but this one just falls flat on it's face due to the horribly contrived lyrics. He tries to frame the song as if some girl is deliberately trying to get him to cheat (even going so far as to say that the girl's asking him "Do I make you feel like cheating? "), and he's telling us that he's so great by refusing. Gotta love the "No, not really" answer he gives, like he was thinking "Hm... Maybe I can, but I guess not." What a flip-flopper. Compare this to the framing of "Honey I'm Good", where the guy is just trying to avoid getting drunk and doing something stupid (which actually happens in real life), and he gives the girl a flat "No" rather than some insincere "I guess not". The musical failings of this song (vocals that sound like an alien, as well as the terribly weak instrumentals) don't help either. Yeah, that's another part that "Honey I'm Good" does better.
Agreed. Honestly, I hope Grammer prospers in the game while OMI stops recording music. - WonkeyDude98
Another song going on my worst list of the year. The song itself is not even remotely about a cheerleader but rather a girl he wants to do, typical for today's horrible pop and hip hop music. The lyrics make no sense and are way off message. Second the music, this fully auto tuned nuanced butchering of Reggae music combined with the sensory overload that is deep house is absolutely terrible. And finally his voice is just steamy garbage it sounds like a seal being strangled to death and is absolutely detrimental to an average persons ears. Bob Marley is probably taking a dump in his grave listening to awful Reggae impersonations like this one. - miked199220
The idea about this song is that it wants to convince you that he found a special girl, yet in the end it's all about him. All the girls want HIM and HE'S special because the girl grants him all his wishes and HE'S the magician with his magic wand. Really OMI? Good thing that girl is there for you, because I don't think you'll be there for her when she needs you... And that says more.
This song must die.V86 Comments
This one is going on my worst list this year, Yet another completely awful product from the X Factor Blandness Factory. Fifth Harmony are nothing more than incredibly lame Destinys Child Wannabes with little originality, creativity, talent, or positive attributes to speak of. The lyrics are lazy and way off message, and as another blogger said this an extremely stupid "Talk Dirty" ripoff, and we sure as hell did not need Jason Derulo. Yes I am probably going to find worse songs than this but there is always a part to start when cleaning up the slime that is bad pop music every year. I was stupid to leave "Boss" off the list last year, I am not making the same mistake this time. - miked199220
Worth It is popular to girls in my school, and must be top 5 to girls in the whole school - FerrariDude64
How are so many people trying to defend this really awful song? It's beyond me.
The song has a catchy beat, but it's sampled from another song; Talk Dirty, which was already bad enough, and we did not need Jason Deluro in the scene either. The lyrics are way off message, lazy, and pretty much boring to listen to. Kid Ink's minor appearance doesn't help it, either.
And like others have said, this is basically X Factor trash from a band who cannot try to be their idols; Destiny's Child. I may not have listened to Destiny's Child because of how Beyoncé turned trash, but at least they tried singing. - Swellow
I don't find this song terrible, but it's just so lazy, unoriginal, and forgettable. It samples the beat, has a very boring and overdone message that is neither original nor interesting. I can't tell if it's trying to be a sex song or somewhat empowering, but it fails either way. It's just so scripted, so bland, and relied way too much on 11 year-old girls and crappy movie advertising to get its popularity. This song will just be forgotten with time, along with all the countless cliches it has.
This song is better than yo mamaV60 Comments
Silento, AKA the laziest currently in the business, was also featured here, with an even more chipmunk-imitating vocal performance.
This song gave me cavities, and the dental bill couldn't cover it all.
Is the change in the voice necessary? I don't think so, because it ruined the whole song.
This song is bad and bad for your brain. - madoogV11 Comments
The more I listen to the song, the less I like it. I said Mendes was a good singer? Take that back, his voice is weak and shrill but not stylish enough to cover up. The guitars are too plucky, it's pretty inauthentic. The drums are too loud and yet underpowered.
Honestly, ignoring this, the lyrics are too vague to convey anything, and on lines like "bring me back to life" and "going under", Mendes doesn't bring anywhere near as much punch and energy as he should, and it sounds really careless. When you combine the vague lyrics with Shawn's shrill voice, nothing is to be felt here. Ironic that just as Bieber improved significantly, a much worse wannabe came along.
I change my score.5 lower compared to my last review. I give this a 1.5/5, and that drops the overall score of 2015 down to 196/500. - WonkeyDude98
I know people in real life who obsess over this song, but why?
The song, lyrically based, is pretty weak. He talks about the death of his lover and the sadness surrounding it, but it's ruined with the lyrics that are extremely whiny and make Shawn seem like a baby crying because he didn't get a toy in a shop. His vocals don't help, either. Extremely weak, bland, and the occurring high note problems come back again. Did this kid take vocal school? Probably not.
And the instrumentation is poorly done, with the drums lacking an actual beat and the guitar part sounding extremely vague. - Swellow
Good comment, but it's about a lost lover, not a late lover. If it was about the latter I'd probably like it a whole lot more. - WonkeyDude98
No duh this is the worst song. HORRIBLE! Shawn Mendes CANNOT sing, and his voice really freaks me out especially when he hits a high note. And the lyrics and the video were disturbing and disgusting and I hate Shawn Mendes. He does realize that little kids are listening to this? That's a concern, because the imagery in my head when I hear this is so gory and gross and I literally want to cringe. And I'm fifteen. Why was he nominated for best male artist at the RDMAs when he can't sing? Every video is terrifying and violent, and every song sounds like he hates someone. He didn't get in because of TALENT. he got in because of his good looks. Can't he keep his shirt on for once in a selfie? WE GET IT YOU HAVE HUGE ABS! I'm tired of all his half-naked selfies. This song is even written in my least favorite key: C#. And I wish that the words were used in a less gory way, and that the video wasn't so gory. It's creepy. And his facial expressions are creepy and pointless. He's destroying ...more
This song is a huge disaster.V40 Comments
Marijuana already has a negative reputation thanks to the obnoxious stoner community plaguing the Internet right now, but this song might be the worst marijuana-related thing ever. It's horrifyingly terrible. Besides, we don't need another pro-marijuana song manipulating the drooling idiots of this generation into becoming interested in drugs, this generation is dumb and addicted enough already (sobriety is so underrated nowadays). Not to mention, the fetishistic music video is a train wreck of baffling repulsiveness. This song is a monumental fiasco, a stillborn 0/10 abomination worthy of the music grave.
This might be worse than "Watch Me." I'm not kidding. At first, I thought "Watch Me" was the worst. And I was happy when it was number 1 on Buckley's Top 10 Worst Songs of 2015. Then, THIS was in the honorable mentions. He said it would've been on the list if it played on the radio and if you actually had to pay money to get this atrocity. I was curious about the song, so I watched the music video. 10 seconds later I switched to a lyric video.(ugh..) People who say metal music is just noise have obviously never heard this song, let's just say that. Now if you excuse me, I'm gonna pour a gallon of brain bleach in my ear.
What happened to Miley? Ever since Wrecking Ball she has gotten more and more crazy, and she says she does it to rebel against the rules she learned as a kid. Well, nothing wrong with being a rebel, but her outfits and apparel? *shudder* The video is even more scary, the lyrics are plain, and there's not really anything you can enjoy about the song.
This song sucks bad but I don't take it that serious because the whole Dead Pets album was supposed to be experimental for herV40 Comments
Don't get me wrong; I usually like female artists in general, with the exception of the recent ones like Meghan Trainor and Iggy Azalea, but this is one of the most boring attempts I have ever heard of a song, and I have to admit it.
The most major flaw of the song is the title of it and how it's sang. OK, it's about battling things like cancer and depression, but Rachel's rather vapid voice and the not-so strong instruments used make it sound rather weak compared to strong. The title says FIGHT Song, so why not make it sound strong to overcome cancer, depression, et cetera?
Now let's compare Platten herself to artists like Kelly Clarkson and Christina Aguilera. They have made several songs about power, and they are strong and use strong voices. Unless Rachel Platten improves, she can't really be considered strong enough.
Overall, 4/10. It's not as good as I thought it was, but it was a lot better than I feared. - Swellow
For some reason I don't wanna despise this song as much as I do. This is probably my pick for the most overhated song of 2015, and this is coming from someone who hates it. When people call this the weakest, most energy-less song ever, it's honestly a stretch. Generic and bland, maybe, but powerless? This isn't the slowest song of all time (apologizing to Adele in advance), and the percussion and vocal enhancements are enough of a presence to give the song some punch, along with Platten's surprising charisma.
Now don't get me wrong, I don't like this song, in fact I give it a 1.5/5. But I can respect it, at the least. I believe Platten is talented and that the entirety of Wildfire was a mistake, and that it's not continued in the future. - WonkeyDude98
I usually don't like to make this claim, seeing as it's so bold, but I sincerely believe that this is the worst song I've ever heard. It sounds like something that you would find in a 14-year-old's diary, and the music just makes it worse. How do you make a song called "Fight Song" boring? How does that even happen?!
I think what upsets me the most is the fact that this peaked at #6. Of all the songs this year that cracked the top ten, this was the one that deserved it the least. So many better artists out there, yet we gave success to this song that sounds like Platten wasn't even trying. It is by no means the most unlistenable song I've heard, but I can't think of any song right now that I respect less. When One Direction can release a song with more energy than a song called "Fight Song," that's just sad.
You say that last sentence like One Direction's songs are not energetic. That's one of the saving graces about them, liar. - WonkeyDude98
Self empowerment is a great thing. Don't abuse it. - TheAwesomeBrosVotesV43 Comments
Kendrick releases an entire album this year that could be considered a classic, and THIS is what gets him to #1? Nothing in this world makes sense...
I hate Taylor these days. I was a HUGE fan of her country music, and she actually wrote fine lyrics. Now it's all " MY EX GOT ANNOYED BY MY CRAPPY MUSIC SO I'M WRITING A SONG AND I'LL PRETEND TO BE THE VICTIM". Also, why write a meaningless song about how much you hate someone who's better than you? This song sucks. She basically bribed a ton of celebrities to be in the video. This song's crap.
Like Fight Song, my opinion of this has degraded so much.
It's mainly because of the production, which (trying to keep it clean) is horse poop. Snares? Thick bass? Gang vocals? Random "HEY"s? That's terrible.
The more I think about it Kendrick's verses seem more like Far East Movement or Flo Rida. Nonexistent.
Also, why is Taylor Swift belting? And where did her way with word from Blank Space go?
Yeah, my first experience was a 3/5, but now it's a 0/5, and her worst song to date. Kendrick releases possibly the best rap album of the decade and THIS gets him popular. - WonkeyDude98
Taylor Swift sucksV59 Comments
Just because the artist is 11 doesn't excuse her from the song she made. When I listened to the song, it immediately did not appeal to me. Not surprising it's very feminine and edgy-like, the beat is very identical to Fancy. It doesn't even sounds like two best friends, just some girls that like to beat up boys and compliment each other's bras. I am still very young and my songs are more diverse than those lyrics. Going more on topic, the song can only relate to girly females that are attractive and don't do their homework, I guess. The key to making a good song is to make it relate to a common situation, that can be placed with ANYONE. For example, a song about a father dying and his son's grief. That could be replaced with a song about a dragon dying and their friend's grief. Or maybe it could be transitioned to an entirely new meaning. There's barely any other relation or different definitions with anything else in this song. Leaving on one last note, Best Friends is so ...more
