The Contenders: Page 3

41 Barracuda - Heart Barracuda - Heart

One of the few groups where women really shine and rock hard, why do they get so much hate? Is it purely sexism?

42 Yeah! - Usher Yeah! - Usher V 2 Comments
43 Story of My Life - One Direction Story of My Life - One Direction

It's one of the worst songs that I've heard till date. Excessively overrated. Deserves to be no. 1 in this list.

I'm sorry, this was one of the best songs of 2012 in my personal opinion. Lyrics are meaningful. Why so much hate?

44 Royals - Lorde Royals - Lorde

I don't understand why everyone is all like " ROYALS IS LIKE MY FAVORITE SONG" and how it's even "real music." Like come on there is way better songs too. This didn't even deserve to be #1. Same with Roar.

Royals is Extremely overrated. - Gamecubesarecool193

I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE this song! From the other stuff I've heard from Lorde, I can easily say that she will be an artist that will make no good songs in my book.

The snapping in this song is like Chinese water torture to my ears.

45 Mack the Knife - Bobby Darin Mack the Knife - Bobby Darin

I am utterly spalttergasted that this is here. do people even listen to bobby darin?

46 Firework - Katy Perry Firework - Katy Perry

Honestly, I can write better lyrics. Why do people like meaningless music? And an annoying, racist, homophobic, religious fanatic person to boot?

Besides, songs like November Rain shouldn't be above crap like this. A song like November Rain actually has MEANING

I know someone with a terrible and racist voice, but I could put his singing over Firework any day.

47 We Can't Stop - Miley Cyrus We Can't Stop - Miley Cyrus

Don't even get me started on this one...

This song fails to be a party song and is a bad song in general. If you want TRUE party songs then go listen to No.5 and Everywhere I go by Hollywood Undead.

WHAT IS THIS?!? Shes like, "Lets make a HORRIBLE song about partying! [through in the drugs to]. STOP Miley!

It's so slow and boring and fails to be a party song. not to mention its produced by mike will

48 Grenade - Bruno Mars Grenade - Bruno Mars

Pretty overrated song, although there is a band called R5 that stole this song's intro and used it in one of their songs. It's called (I Can't) Forget About You. I don't like this song, but Mars should have sued them for however much money they made off of that song. - therootbeer

It might not be the best of Bruno Mars but not overrated! It is quite nice to listen.

That's his best song, if anything Talking to the moon should be here. - LukeTargaryen

Someone hand him a grenade already so we can all get some piece.

49 We Belong Together - Mariah Carey We Belong Together - Mariah Carey

How Can This Be On This List? -_-

50 Thiller - Michael Jackson Thiller - Michael Jackson

People just love to try and take Michael down a notch. He was the greatest entertainer the world has ever known. Absolute perfectionist

This song is nowhere near overrated or underrated. - malamJONES

Overrated just because of the video.

51 The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars

I like this song, but I do think it's overrated. - funnyuser

This song ruined my childhood because when I was 9 I heard the part of the song that says" I met a really nice girl had some really nice sex"

Should easily be number one. This song is SO stupid and overrated. Rihanna is too. And Beyonce.

53 Watch Me - Silento Watch Me - Silento

Now watch me whip? Now watch me Nae Nae? Its like a conversation between a horse and its rider. The rider says to watch him whip and then the horse says to watch him Nae Nae.

I do not le this song whenever I tried listening to good music it put this and everyone starts whipping Ugh

54 Ur So Gay - Katy Perry Ur So Gay - Katy Perry

A song that promotes transphobia and homophobia. I don't care if this was a "joke," it's equivalent to tasteless, racist jokes shouted by an angry bigot

Katy Perry is super racist. "your So Gay", that's a bad thing, that's like rudely saying someone is so homosexual.

Only now have I heard of this. I hate homophobia

How is this overrated?

56 Ironic - Alanis Morissette Ironic - Alanis Morissette

Not ironic, more so coincidence. Honestly, overrated song by Alanis Morissette. Also really overdone on my local radio station (alongside To The Moon & Back by Savage Garden) which furthered my dislike of the song.
If anyone knows where To The Moon And Back is, tell me.

58 E.T. - Katy Perry E.T. - Katy Perry
59 Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns n Roses Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns n Roses

Overrated and overused. I hear this song from the radio almost everyday. I mean; this song is only composed of 3 chords and Slash admitted he was clowning around when this song was created. In other words, this song is a joke from the start. Listen to something else for a change. - aeromaxx777

This was #6 on list of best songs of all time on this site. It's a cool riff and it's kinda catchy but SIX all time? It's not even the 6th best Guns N' Roses song, and Guns N' Roses are overrated to begin with. Everything bad about 80s rock is here: hair metal, Robert Plant-wannabe-vocals, repetitive riffs, and lame power ballad vocals.

I like the intro but the words and voice is just rubbish, stairway to heaven is not overrated, which one of you idiots made this list

Carry on my wayward child is the only song I like from the 80's

60 Cheerleader - Omi Cheerleader - Omi

This deserves to be in the top ten. The singer has one of the most annoying voices ever, and the lyrics are lackluster. The only good thing about this song is the beat, and that doesn't really help its case much.

So boring! I don't even know how this hit number 1!
