21 Downtown - Macklemore Downtown - Macklemore

Confession time: this is my favorite song of the year. *Leaves so doesn't get attacked* - MontyPython

Even if I prefer other songs this year over, I still like it. *leaves too* - WonkeyDude98

This is a good song. The only bad song Mack&Lewis have had in their career (at least that I've heard) is Same Love. - WonkeyDude98

Even including Can't Hold Us? I could write essays on why Thrift Shop, Can't Hold Us, and Downtown are good. - WonkeyDude98

When I first listened to this, I thought it was Christina Aguilera singing the chorus, until I realized it was a guy singing, don't give me hate

More fun and jamming and hilarious than Uptown Funk. One of the high point in Mack & Ryan's careers

22 Dooo It! - Miley Cyrus

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 her

23 Ex's and Oh's - Elle King Ex's and Oh's - Elle King

Although it's overplayed, this song is actually kind of good and has a good beat to it. There's worse songs though, like Hit the Quan, Watch Me, Pretty Girls, et cetera.

Oh god! I can't stand her god awful torturous voice and instrumentals! I truly want to get rid of this garbage whenever possible! - SelfDestruct

*Sigh* I used to like this, but it's become vapid and dumb at this point where I made a rant about it. Elle King's voice is OK, but goes off the pitch, especially the chorus. The instrumental was average but is ruined out by the song, the lyrics are undeniably terrible, and the video is awful. I do hate the music videos where men exploit women with scanty clothes, but doing it vice versa by showing women with clothes and men with underwear and innuendo themes doesn't help.

Also, it's now becoming overplayed in my country. I never heard it once, but then it came on and it kept on playing. - Swellow

I love the chorus, but I HATE the rest. If I listen to this song, it's just for the chorus. But the rest of it just makes me wanna puke. Somebody should slap the chorus onto a different song. Maybe a Taylor Swift song? She seems to be the only female singer that I can tolerate nowadays.

Three words: She. Can't. Sing.

24 Trap Queen - Fetty Wap Trap Queen - Fetty Wap

This song is complete garbage. I despise Fetty Wap, I truly do, he is a talentless hack who is fake as hell. What really surprises me is that he wasn't a one hit wonder, he had 4 hits this year WHAT THE HELL!?!?! Why the hell is this guy getting so much praise, he can't rap, his flow is horrible and his voice is god awful. He's just like any other crappy modern rapper so why is he getting praise? Also I forgot to mention his songs sound exactly the same, In fact, he is the most same sounding "musician" I have ever heard. He reuses the same beats and even the same lyrics. But what pisses my off the most is that he has only been around for 1 year and he got 3 hits in the top 11 in billboard hot 100. This was last achieved by The Beatles. THE ' Beatles! It disgusts me that somebody so talentless in every single way, who has only been around for a year has achieved something The Beatles achieved. Is this really how bad rap has become?

I agree SO MUCH. When I heard this song, I heard this horrible, chocking, voice, along with sounds that I'm surprised is qualified as music! - FennikenFan9

Yup. I do not like this. Fetty Wap sounds like he is crying. Lol.

This song needs to be higher on the list. Fetty Wap sounds like he is whining more than a baby after it soiled its diaper, and all it's about is him drug dealing with his girl. I don't get how so many people like this dude. In his songs, all he does is sound like he is whining and he is always talking about being with a girl. Really, whenever I hear his voice, I want to cut my ears off. How does someone this bad at rapping become so popular in just one year? I'll never get how so many people obsess over Fetty's "songs." Anyway, this should be #2, under Watch Me by Silento, the most annoying and terrible song of the year. It's nothing but an insult to rap and music as a whole.

Why does Fetty Wap sing when he can't.

25 BB Talk - Miley Cyrus

And I thought We Can't Stop is too much... - SamuiNeko

It's about Miley's baby obsession and about how she wants to be one again. No comment. - Swellow

To reasons why this song should be higher, check out the music video...

*sigh* I'll get the bleach

26 Fight Song - Rachel Platten Fight Song - Rachel Platten

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

For a song that has "Fight" in the title, it fails to inspire. Rachel Platten doesn't have Kelly Clarkson's powerhouse vocals or Taylor Swift's above average songwriting. I can easily make a long list of empowerment anthems that can easily replace Fight Song. 4/10. - NiktheWiz

27 Stressed Out - Twenty One Pilots Stressed Out - Twenty One Pilots

The hook isn't all that bad in this song. The verses, on the other hand, are absolutely horrendous. The beat is very uninspired and the rapping on the verse legitimately sounds like it was done by a retarded person. I hear this song almost every day on the radio, and I want to change the station so badly, but my sister won't let me.

I heard this song twice. At two different stores. It's also highly overrated and overplayed. Come on, Twenty One Pilots. You can do better. I'VE HEARD BETTER FROM YOU! - RiverClanRocks

Garbage. Some of the worst, most uninspired lyrics I've ever heard. This song has so little inspiration behind it that it's possible to make a compelling argument that it doesn't actually exist.

Why is this on here? The first time I heard this song, the lyrics were so funny!

28 Love Me Like You Do - Ellie Goulding

Her voice is not even bad. There is a difference between having a high voice and a bad singing voice. Also, if you listen to the rest of her songs, you will see that they actually have more meaning. Give me as many thumbs downs as you like, call me butthurt, or whatever, but you will still look like a bunch of idiots. If you are looking for a music artist to hate, then hate the ones who are ACTUALLY bad, like 2 Chainz, Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Miley Cyrus, One Direction, Chris Brown, etc.

This is a prime example of those sexial songs that we complain air on the radio. I don't mind the beat, but the lyrics murder the whole purpose of the song. "Touch me like you do"? I don't think anyone wants that message in their head. And I recently found out it was made for Fifty Shades of Gray: The Movie. What a surprise given the content...

Overall, 5/100. And the five was just because of the so-so beat. That's the only reason it even got points besides pity points. - Turkeyasylum

The problem with this song is that it is too corny. Like seriously, touch me like you do? I'm sure that people will get nightmares because of that message. Also there is too much autotune and you can obviously hear it. This was also made for Fifty Shades of Gray which is completely obvious too.

Ellie has a great voice... It's the lyrics that ruin this song for me.

29 My x - Rae Sremmurd My x - Rae Sremmurd

To rate the album SremmLife, I'd give it a -1 out of 10.

This is easily the worst song on it. The album that is produced by Mike WiLL Made-It with the two annoying vocalists ever that can't write for anything...

Have a worst song bar none. This is just terrible. The glasshouse melody sounds warped, the bass is overpowering when Swae Lee slur-screams "YOU SHOULDA HAD A CHECK B****", Swae Lee has a voice that makes Jason DeRĂ¼lo seem like Freddie Mercury, the lyrics are hypocritical, the duo have absolutely no flow (and that's when they even bother to rhyme), and that synth line is like 10000 Hz in frequency. I feel bad for anyone that went deaf because of it.

This is one of the worst songs I've ever heard in my life. It's a -5/5. - WonkeyDude98

Surprised this is one of the high items on the list yet it has not even a single comment, excluding the comments on the remixes.
Once again, the awful makers of No Flex Zone and Throw Sum Mo come back to give you their next hit; My X! Yes, just more sexual themes and bad lyrics put into one song. However, they remove Nicki Minaj, making it just as bad! - Swellow

I'd rate this song X for bad singing

The synth line makes me wanna kill myself.

30 Cool for the Summer - Demi Lovato Cool for the Summer - Demi Lovato

She's trying too hard to sound edgy. -_-

This song summarizes my biggest problem with 2015 music - for the most part, we just got boring, generic, flat and forgettable songs that really won't be remembered or will stand out in the future. Say what you want about 2012, you still have to admit - it was a pretty bright, distinctive year.

Here? Yawn. A flat, uncoordinated beat that's either trying too hard or not trying hard enough, lame lyrics, and the whole thing is just SO CLICHE AND FORGETTABLE. I know, I use some words way too much, but this is just pathetic, unfocused, slovenly, tedious crap that we have been hearing for about 20 years now.

Just from the title of the song I knew it was gonna be trash

It's winter in Brazil, and men on the radio play it. And what is in the title of this song? SUMMER! Yep, THAT'S REALLY FLIPPED UP! - TheTop10Man

31 Adventures - Kid Cudi Adventures - Kid Cudi
32 Up Like Trump - Rae Sremmurd Up Like Trump - Rae Sremmurd

This song right here is the reason why most hip hop today is terrible. "Rappers" who write lyrics without thinking about them at all. For example, this song is basically them comparing themselves to Donald Trump, without thinking about how he's been one of the most idiotic, loathsome businessmen in America for years, even before the election. The fact that the beat is this slow, boring trap mush, and that Rae Sremmurd sound like they're in middle school doesn't help, but the song was already pretty much ruined from the premise alone. - Zach808

Why the hell would you want to compare yourself to Donald Trump? He's an evil man. Now we're really scraping the bottom of this album.

This album came out before Trump started his evil crap. So I guess Rae Sremmurd didn't care about Trump back then. - SelfDestruct

I know it loses all it's meaning when people say it all the time, but I'm not kidding when I say this is the worst song I've ever heard. These losers think they can rap, when they can't. At all. RIP Hip-Hop, 1979-2015 - Spark_Of_Life

Only Rae Sremmurd song I like. I hate Trump

33 Trouble - Iggy Azalea Trouble - Iggy Azalea

This crappy creature who calls herself a rapper must be hanged to death for torturing true music-lovers. Damn! Trash everywhere.

While I agree Iggy Azalea sucks... Why this song? This song is honestly pretty low-key compared to her others, and the chorus and instrumentals are at least decent. Especially compared to that other piece of garbage she released this year with Britney Spears.

This is definitely the most boring song of the year. - Puga

This sounds like a song made for a church full of black people... - Moorefamval

34 The Hills - The Weeknd The Hills - The Weeknd

This song shouldn't be on this list - venomouskillingmachine

This song is pretty good actually. It's dark, moody, and honest - mtndewlord

Basically this summary by Todd in the Shadows sums it up:

"This is just the weirdest godd*mn song. You get this dark, menacing vibe, but then you get this guy who sounds like a munchkin, he presents himself as this bada** ladies' man, and then he's all whiny, and then he invokes one of the most infamously gritty, ugly grindhouse movies in history."

But at least he's not trying to uplift anyone *directs attention to Rachel Platten*, right? Nah, that's too MAINSTREAM. Nah, have a bass that swamps out the entire song, a basic 4 chord synth line, and lyrics that paint everything wrong with modern pop, and that's the way to go! - WonkeyDude98

This song is amazing and anybody g as hating it has no common sense

35 Drag Me Down - One Direction Drag Me Down - One Direction

I wish that this stupid band, along with their stupid Directioners would just go away for good and never come back

Glad I'm not the only one! But even if they go away we will still have Zayn (or however the hell you spell that god damn name) thinking he can pull off a solo career, and trying to be 'sexy.' - Hater

I actually used to like this song, but it is so overplayed and I want to rip my ears out whenever I hear it. Plus the directioners acted horrible towards some emo artists, and told their kids to cut. I listen to some emo music which is so much better than POP MUSIC. I don't even listen to the bands that they did this to, but that is horrible to do. All I have to say about this is THANK GOODNESS FOR ROCK MUSIC AND THANK GOODNESS FOR SCREAM UKULELE RAP

One Direction more like One Erection or No D. One Direction has been an absolute failure since the very beginning, but this is probably their worst song! Its absolutely 100% pure auto tune and the lyrics suck and very generic. Did I mention that One Direction don't write their songs? No? Ok, I'll say it now, THEY DON'T WRITE THEIR SONGS! That just proves how talentless One Direction really are. Overall this song really sucks and so do One Direction.

Please go One Direction to hell - Moorefamval

36 South Side - Thomas Rhett South Side - Thomas Rhett

The worst song on Tangled Up, and one of the worst songs of the entire year. The beat is bassline, guitar, and...kazoo? WHAT?! Oh yeah, and Thomas Rhett gutlessly tells all girls to "shake their south side", but HOW ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO DO THAT WHEN THERE IS NO ACTUAL MELODY?! Oh yeah, and HE MIMICS DJ MJSTARD'S WATERMARK.

Just...burn this song. - WonkeyDude98

37 Honey, I'm Good - Andy Grammer Honey, I'm Good - Andy Grammer

People, you have it all wrong. Grammer is saying here how someone is trying to seduce him, and he's trying not do get drunk and mess up. That's why he says "Nah, honey I'm good", where he doesn't hesitate to say no. While Cheerleader, it says "No, not really", sounding like he had to think for a second about whether or not to say no. Also, this song has so much better music and lyrics than Cheerleader.

No, this song is NOT better than Cheerleader. It's about the same in premise: snarky, bland song about how one thinks about cheating when going out to a club, and then patting their self on the back for not doing it. This thought should never even cross your mind when you're happy with you've already got.

The striking difference between this and Cheerleader (besides musically which this does well and Cheerleader fails at spectacularly) are the tone and situation.

1) OMI isn't drunk off his head unlike Grammer in the situation. Less of a reason to be in this conflict.

2) Compare "no, not really" to "nah, I'm good". Huge difference.

3) "Do I make you feel like cheating? " Is explicitly said in Cheerleader. That isn't reasonable in the slightest and should actually make you more decisive about the decision. Meanwhile, Grammer is actively seducted but still succeeds.

3/5 - WonkeyDude98

He shamed country music and pop music with this song. anyone can pull off a country accent like him, add some autotune, add a sucky beat and get famous that way (no talent required).

38 Nasty Freestyle - T-Wayne Nasty Freestyle - T-Wayne

T-Wayne? Is that a cross between T-Pain and Lil Wayne? *shudder* - WonkeyDude98

What is this? The autotune is off the charts, the lyrics are confusing, and T-Wayne's vocals are grating. Even barring the autotune. - SwagFlicks

Congrats, Vine! You unleashed the Cthulhu of music! And that is not a good thing.

After hearing this song I'll be like "First Let Me Jump Of A Bridge"

39 G.D.F.R. - Flo Rida G.D.F.R. - Flo Rida

This list is going down for real! - RockStarr

The beat of the song is so good, but they gave it to flo rida. ugh. great Talk Dirty's awesome beat was wasted on Jason Derulo and now this awesome beat was wasted on Flo Rida. WHY?

Awesome beat, and lyrically, it isn't much but there's way worse out there! It's actually a really good song if you just shut your brain off for a minute.

Why is this even on here? I LOVE THIS SONG!

40 Alive - Sia Alive - Sia

I really fon't understand why this is here! The background music is very powerful and clean and allows for Sia's amazing and emotional vocals to shine through in balance with each other! Doesn't deserve to be this high...

I'd like to see you cover this song and sound as good as Sia does.

Haha. The cover album is very funny
