The Contenders: Page 3

41 Fly - Hopsin Fly - Hopsin

Why would someone make songs about flies? - AlphaQ

It's not about flies, it's about how we're stuck in the Matrix. Or so Hopsin claims. - Satire

42 My Way - Fetty Wap My 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"

43 Movin' Up - Alana Thompson Movin' 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

44 New Americana - Halsey New 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

45 Want to Want Me - Jason Derulo Want 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.

46 Crash & Burn - Thomas Rhett Crash & 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

47 Somebody - Natalie la Rose Somebody - 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

48 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

49 Eyes On You - Meek Mill Eyes 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

50 All Eyes On You - Meek Mill All 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

51 She'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

The person who said "One Direction is on the Verge of being forgotten" leave them out of this!

52 Flex (Ooh Ooh Ooh) - Rich Homie Quan Flex (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.

I don't even know what he's saying 90% of the song - Mcgillacuddy

53 Talking Body - Tove Lo Talking 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!

54 Bet You Can't Do It Like Me - Dlow
55 Sorry - 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

This song is annoying with those vocalizations. - madoog

56 A Little Too Much - Shawn Mendes A Little Too Much - Shawn Mendes

He experienced a little damage in his vocals. He did so many belts in his 2 2015 world tours so he should give his voice a break. If he gets a hemorrhage or anything like that his fans would be terrified. Luckily in his People's Choice Awards 2016 performance he omitted the G#5 belt (My Guess) in "Stitches," which shows he's careful or he was sick when performing so he didn't want to make things worse.

Shawn Mendes is a terrible "musician" his voice is terrible and his guitar playing sucks

This bastard is still making music! He is a psychopath! - SelfDestruct

Country undertones

57 D.G.I.F.U. - Chris Brown and Tyga

Welp, they decide to rip off Dr. Dre's flow from an older song. I'd swear; If Tyga or Chris Brown manage to sample Nuthin' But a G-Thang, there's going to be blood. - Swellow

If Eminem and Dre aren't suing for the stolen flow, then it'd be criminal. - WonkeyDude98

58 Merry Xmas - Fetty Wap Merry 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.

59 This Summer's Gonna Hurt - Maroon 5 This Summer's Gonna Hurt - Maroon 5

My lord, even as a Maroon 5 fan this is utter tripe. The beat isn't helping anything. The percussion is generic and industrial, and the synth is a thin smog that follows no real melody. This is like Chris Brown's Loyal, except more bitter. The chorus is asinine, the verses are downright vile, and Adam's voice is at its peak annoyance and monotony. I give this a 0/5, and Maroon 5 have never made a song this bad. I fear the day they will. - WonkeyDude98

This song sucks in the exact same ways that One More Night sucked. Adam Levine's voice is more grating than usual, the lyrics are once again about Adam complaining about how he has all the sex he could ever want (basically the subject of most Maroon 5 songs), and the music can't make up for it like it could in their older songs. Might as well be the part 2 of that song.

I like Maroon 5, but this song is annoying and just goes "This summer's gonna hurt like a mother f-er." I want the old Maroon 5 back. The ones who did "She Will Be Loved", "Won't Go Home Without You", etc.

I am asking all fans:What happened to our Maroon 5?

60 Style - Taylor Swift Style - Taylor Swift

This is a decent song. Taylor Swift actually makes decent music, with the exception of Shake it Off.

This is actually a really good song. I don't know why it's on here.

I... actually consider this to be among the least bad Taylor Swift songs, even though I absolutely hate the artist. It's not a whiny break-up song, so that's a step up. It's not a "I don't care about haters so much, I decided to spend several weeks writing, recording, and making a video for the song to show how much I don't care! " song. The beat is OK, and the lyrics are, albeit mediocre, tolerable. It's actually a step up from her usual "nine year-old's break up" routine.

Her best single. Production's good, lyrics are fantastic, Taylor sounds good on it, it's a good song.
