Top Ten Worst Songs of 2015

21Trap 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.

22Fight 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

Self empowerment is a great thing. Don't abuse it. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

23BB 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

24Stressed 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.

Oh god this is TERRIBLE. TWenty One Pilots can't SING

25Hey Mama - David Guetta

We will not be calling Nicki Minaj "Mama". - ThePwoperMuser101

The pretty decent beat is brought down by a abysmal threesome of verses, destroying the barriers of gender equality and being sung by alpha female:NICKI MINAJ! -Ranter King

Talk about getting boring in record time. Minimalist beat, terrible lyrics and cluttered production mixes together to make this mediocre David Guetta track.

David Guetta was never good, anyways. - SwagFlicks

26Love 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.

27Hotline Bling - Drake

What really bothers me about this is not the song itself. I've not actually heard the song enough times to actually remember how it goes. In fact, I don't think I've ever once listened to it the whole way through. But the one thing that really bugs me about this garbage is Drake's obnoxious dancing in the video. Every time this song is mentioned, the first thing that pops into my head is that damp dance. And I can't get it out of my head. Ugh, it's so annoying. This mess should never have been made. Thank goodness, I don't listen to today's pop music or follow any of today's stupid trends, like doing stupid, pointless and dangerous challenges and posting about it on social media.

This should definitely be higher! The lyrics make no sense to me, and the way its sung and the beat is just plain BORING. What annoys me the most is that EVERYONE is singing this crap, all my friends like this. My friend recommended this to me, she was praising this song like it was uptown funk part 2. And when I heard it, I was like what?!?!? I hate it, and I have no damn idea how the heck it got so famous and why everyone likes it!

This is literally the worst song that I hear on the radio, and I hear a lot of crap. For the most part, anything released in 2015 is absolutely terrible, but some have a good beat. Or at least a beat. This "song" definitely does not. The radio gets changed as soon as I hear the first millisecond of this steaming pile of feces.

This song is not good, at all. - madoog

28Trouble - 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

29Up 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

30Ex'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.

31My Way - Fetty Wap

Fetty Wap is a talentless hack, why is he so famous? Every Sentence in this song ends with "AYY." Not to mention he sounds like a dying whale. Fetty Wap is easily one of the worst rappers to date

His weakest charting song barring Again, but it's still solid. - WonkeyDude98

And I quote:
"When I first heard him, I thought to myself... who is this wannabe? He's some type of underground R&B cat, right? Then the news guys told me he's some hot Hip-hop artist out now. I was like... man, Nas wasn't lying. Hip-hop really is dead. Real sad to know a genre I helped create went down the drain like that."
-Afrika Bambaataa, hip-hop pioneer, "Godfather of hip-hop"

32Drag 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

33Cool 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

Bad forced music

34G.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!

35Nasty 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"

36Alive - 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

37Where Are You Now - Skrillex

Skrillex and Justin Bieber? Sounds like a match made in hell. And yet, the end result is... average. Painfully average. Skrillex has toned down his music from ear-splitting awfulness to generic EDM, and Justin Bieber sounds like he just doesn't care.

That talentless shemale is back again with a sack full of gerbage and now the stupid teenage girls will scream again. Dustbin Bieber, your eligibility lies under the shoes of talented singers. And so called "Beliebers", you are also trash in world like your role model

Well I don't care much about him. However, as a Justin Bieber forget I am shocked how good this song is because of him. - SelfDestruct

I used to like this song. Skrillex production that isn't straight in your face? Check. A drop with actual percussion? Check? Justin Bieber with a voice? Check.

Then I looked again. Ewww. The drop is terrible and easily the worst part of the song. There's this piccolo that runs through and literally makes no sense. There's trap percussion which is very stiff and clunky. Worst of all halfway through there's this gratingly weedy synth bleeding across the percussion and piccolo.

Combine that with the fact that Bieber seems self-obsessed and inert on that mic and it's just ugly.

2/5 - WonkeyDude98

Love Skrillex. Hate This Song.

38The 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

The weeknd kinda sounds whiny and almost disturbing in this song. His other songs are way better

39Wildest Dreams - Taylor Swift

I think this is actually one of Taylor Swift's better songs. Doesn't do much to piss me off at all, unlike something like Shake It Off.

To be quite honest, this isn't a horrible song. I've really been fancying the instrumental version of this song. However, the song itself lacks charisma. It's too plain, and doesn't do too much to really get me going.

Definitely one of her better modern songs.

5/10 - Mediocre - Sxerks

It's a better song by taylor swift but I still don't really like it

It was okay, but it's not one of her better ones.

40Movin' Up - Alana Thompson

What is this!? A children's rap song?! Lame! Who came up with this garbage, this is worse than watch me. I thought watch me was the worst song of the year, this is worse. Get this to number 1.

Yes this is an actual song. Yes it sucks.

She looks like a skinnier Honey Boo Boo - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Remember people, this is the infamous Honey Boo Boo
