41What Do You Mean? - Justin Bieber

How the hell did THIS become a #1 hit? I could understand if "Baby" or "Boyfriend" did it, since those two songs got a ton of hate, but this? This is just album filler. Basically a carbon copy of "Where are you now" with a slightly better beat.

I counted how many times he said "What do you mean? " and got 27 times. Not as repetitive as other songs this year, but still really bad. How this got #1 baffles me as both the vocals and beat are incredibly boring.

I...what?

Alright this song may not be a masterpiece, but it's actually pretty good. The beat is very interesting and impatient, yet calm. It's very soothing and the best kind of background music ever. The ticking clock, the perfectly adjusted piano, the pickety melody, and the flute-y synths, they make the song a comfortable listen. Bieber's voice is still not great, but it's definitely a huge improvement from previous years. The lyrics are really honest about young love, and that it's a horrible and confusing experience. Like I said, not a masterpiece, but a very strong 3.5/5. - WonkeyDude98

In context with the lyrical content, it's actually pretty captivating. - WonkeyDude98

For Justin Bieber, this isn't half bad,

42Want to Want Me - Jason Derulo

It's better than those monstrosities he made in 2014.

I like the chorus, but the verses NEED work.

Nobody wants you, that's why Jordin Sparks left. - PrincessKiana

Cayenne is a great underrated favorite on this album. This, however, is overrated TRASH.

43FourFiveSeconds - Rihanna and Kanye West

Sir Paul McCartney, I am a huge fan of you since I was a kid. You are a legend. But why are you putting yourself in such a low standard? Why don't you team up with U2, David Bowie etc? Kanye and Rihanna just made this song a pure trash. Sir Paul, please don't disappoint us this way :(

Nah, Paul McCartney should team up with Iron Maiden or Megadeth, or even Disturbed for that matter! But, I agree, Paul, don't fall under the mainstream's crappy "musicians" spell. - LostDream258

Paul didn't even sing in this song. :-(

I love Paul McCartney, No idea why would you do something like this, You are awesome. My grandfather's childhood, But honestly when I hear this song, I hear pig noises like what the heck, Your amazing on guitar,

FourFiveSeconds till I explode... because this song's so bad it's making my head hurt

44New Americana - Halsey

This song tries so hard to sound imposing and revolutionary that it's adorable. If you know me, you'd think I'd like this, since it sounds absolutely gigantic, primarily in the percussion and the thick layering of Halsey's voice on the chrous.

But I hate this song. It's just dull and stale. Halsey isn't bad at singing, but there are artists who are better singers and are better at sounding big than Halsey. Even if Halsey is average, the song sounds stale, and the beat is unoriginal, the breaking point for me is the lyrics.

Holy lord is this song corny. "We are the new Americana/High on legal marijuana/Raised on B.I.G.gie and Nirvana/We are the new Americana"

This is one of the worst hooks of the entire YEAR. First off, this can't be NEW Americana when you reference the Notorious B.I.G. and Nirvana (artists you should not even think about having the honor to call out for that matter) and have a beat that sounds so boring, stale, and lifeless despite being so loud ...more - WonkeyDude98

Another pop singer who is trying too hard to be "indie", "alternative". This song in particular sounds an awful lot like National Anthem by Lana Del Rey. Plus the lyrics "Raised on Biggie and Nirvana" are cringe-worthy. Definitely one of the worst this year.

Totally agree, especially the point that it sounds a lot like National Anthem. - jojen_reed

Everyone is complaining about the "raised on biggie and nirvana line" but

1) just because she's younger doesn't mean she can't know those artists

2) she's said before how that line is supposed to represent that she's biracial

I don't even listen to Halsey that much, but at least her songs have more meaning then like 99.9% of the songs on here. Call me butthurt, but I'm just saying that I respect her music and like that it is more relatable then the songs out there like Dear Future Husband and Fancy.

We did not need whiny "non-binary" people singing songs about a "new revolution". - Swellow

45Crash & Burn - Thomas Rhett

Where...to even...begin.

I could start with the beat. It doesn't stand out whatsoever. The melody is flat and shoved father than it should, and other than the whistling and the autopilot percussion, it doesn't stand out whatsoever, and no instrument is memorable. It doesn't help that the transition between the verses and hook is too short, uncalled for, and unrewarding. That isn't even the worst part of it.

Thomas Rhett's vocals are decidedly terrible. In the verses they're this flat, dull, octave 1 sliver. On the hook, they explode into this nasal, monotonous singing. It's like Adam Levine, but without a hint of personality unlike Levine. On both, he has the stereotypical Southern accent, further accentuating his lack of personality.

The lyrics...ugh. They range from self-consciously generic ("I know that it might sound jaded but I have to say I think love is overrated") to downright despicable ("A slammin door and a lesson learned, I let another lover Crash and ...more - WonkeyDude98

Ripped of Sam Cooke's "Chain Gang" without giving credit. This guy's a talentless hack.

What we have here is a complete douchebag. Just listen to how he casually sings "I let another lover crash and burn" as if it's no big deal. The bland instrumentation and Thomas Rhett's complete lack of personality don't help either. - Zach808

46Somebody - Natalie la Rose

This song is so trash! It's a ripoff of not 1, but 2 SONGS! Natalie La Rose is a terrible singer and she just says random gibberish in this song AND THE SONG MAKES NO SENSE! Seriously! Look at the lyrics and try to make sense of them! And of course Jeremih has to appear in the song to make it even worse. I hated this song the moment it came out. This was an absolutely terrible way to start off the year! This song should at least be in the top 10!

Whitney is turning over in her grave at this one. A perfect example of what I call "Kardashian pop" - chiefly urban-oriented pop songs with little to no melody and repetitive beats sung by girls who look better than they sound. See also Demi Lovato and Fifth Harmony. - ChrisInMI80

This is going on my worst list without a doubt, a hated this song upon first listen, its horrible, it samples a classic hit and takes a crap on it. From the first time I heard this song, I know it was going to make my list

There are very few songs that I despise, and this is on the top of the list. Boring and annoying

477/11 - Beyonce

One day I looked at the lyrics to this song.
Worst decision I ever made.

Just. What. Is. This. Beyonce used to make good songs!

"I'm spinnin, I'm spinnin, I'm spinning while my hands up. My hand up, my foot up."
QUICK, SOMEONE GET A DOCTOR.

48Eyes On You - Meek Mill

I'm sitting in the car listening to this crap for the 1000th time and I would rather listen to Friday or Baby than this. - PrincessKiana

It's got a mellow smooth sound to it, now if could just understand what the hell he sing about!

Is this the second time it was on the list - QueenOffoxes

49All Eyes On You - Meek Mill

Lol meek is trash compared to Drake

At least Drake has SOME good songs, Meek has none and he can't even rap, for real, his flow is in competition with 2 Chainz for the title of that category. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

When a really bad rapper collaborates with the singer of hits like Anaconda and Stupid hoe known for her fakeness, and a woman beater, you get... this. Can you call it rap? No. Can you even call it music? I doubt. - Swellow

Ever since the Drake feud, meek needs some more L's added to his name

50All Day - Kanye West

The live version of this at the BRIT Awards had energy and power in Kanye's voice, and is one of his best live performances yet, but the normal studio version is boring and slow.

Kayne west is so stupid and just a bad artist. He thinks he's a god, he's shakespeare in the flesh, and something about being the most impactful or something artist of this generation. No joke, look it up.

51She's Kinda Hot - 5 Seconds of Summer

One Direction are on the verge of becoming forgotten, and just like I predicted somebody else is going to replace them. And the replacement is none other than 5 Seconds of Summer. Now were going to have little 12 year old girls obsess about them for about 2 years and then, somebody else is going to replace them. THIS GOES ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON!

Listen to this song, then listen to "Teenagers" by My Chemical Romance. They're the same song, except this one has terrible lyrics.

This song is ok, but teenagers is the best song ever it has more of a meaning than "this girl is pretty" Teenagers shows the reality of middle and high school, how there will be people who won't accept you for yourself, there will be people who just don't like you, people will tell you to be yourself and then laugh at you for it. Thank you My Chemical Romance

So the girl is obnoxious and the guy is shallow, who do I root for?

52Flex (Ooh Ooh Ooh) - Rich Homie Quan

Trash. Just listen to it and come back and tell me why this shouldn't be #1

There is a reason why I don't listen to rap music, and this is a great example why

I used to like this song, then I decided to look up the lyrics.

This song is good and catchy. - madoog

53Talking Body - Tove Lo

People need to stop hating on Tove Lo. If you listen to her album, you'll see that all the songs come together to form a story (split into 3 sections: the sex, the love, and the pain). This song fits with the sex section, which is about the fun aspects of the relationship. She's easily one of the best current pop singers - mtndewlord

I will admit, her other song was ok, BUT THIS IS HORRIBLE! MY GOD THIS SONG BLOWS! Tove Lo lacks originality and she is a complete ripoff of Kesha. Tove Lo is way worse. At least Kesha's songs are catchy and are actually fun and enjoyable. Tove Lo on the other hand, her songs sound the same, they're all about how desperate she is for a man, and her lyrics suck as well, "If you love me right for life on and on and on." what! This way not be the worst song of the year, but it easily goes in the top 10 worst.

I don't like Tove Lo, but I will say her other song was ok, but THIS IS HORRIBLE! MY GOD THIS SONG BLOWS! THIS EASILY GOES ON MY TOP 10 WORST SONGS OF THE YEAR! And Tove Lo lacks originality and she's a complete ripoff of Kesha, and Tove Lo is wwayy worse! This is a lyric in the song, "If you love me right for life on and on and on." At least Kesha's song are catchy and she never directly said that she's going to. Tove Lo on the other hand, her songs are pathetic and are about how desperate she is for a man. Overall this song sucks, it may not be the worst song of the year, but is should be much higher on this list

This song should go die in a hole! And what is the tune? The lyrics are so horrible!

54Sorry - Justin Bieber

He should be sorry for making terrible music

Honestly, this is the closest I've come to actually liking a Justin Bieber song. The song's still pretty boring, but the beat's fine enough. Still doesn't warrant a #2 debut, though.

This is by far the worst Justin Bieber song, well none of his songs are good at all to begin with, but this is the worst, every time I hear this song I feel like going crazy

Better than his 2010 stuff

55My 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.

56Hurricane - Soulja Boy

Why r u still making garbage. Soulja Boy, nobody cares about you, why r u trying to stay relevant?

Nobody has cared about Soulja Boy since 2007, why is this dumbass still making terrible music?

Wow, TWO Soulja Boy songs this year? *barfs in a bag* - WonkeyDude98

57I Know What You Did Last Summer - Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello

Shawn Mendes collaborating with the worst singer from the already terrible Fifth Harmony? Who was asking for this to happen?

Obviously! Shawn Mendes ruins music! - SelfDestruct

This is like one of Taylor Swift's old songs with Tim McGraw or I thought this song was by Taylor Swift & Ellie Goulding or something! Still jealous about that Swift girl?

I am obsessed with this song, who the hell put it on here it's amazing

58Honey, 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

Got SO annoying!

59Merry Xmas - Fetty Wap

Fetty Wap has a Christmas album? I need to hear this.

Why do people cross out the "Christ" part in Christmas? It's like taking the Lord away or something.

V For the person below, they cross out the "Christ" because it used to be banned to use the word "Christ" or talk about him, so Christians used an X because it's like a cross turned on its side.

60South 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
