Top Ten Reasons Why Baby by Justin Bieber is Not the Worst Song Ever

This song (and the angry preteens who voted for it) are the reason my last list went to absolute irredeemability. It was meant to pick on songs worse than Baby, but look where it is now. So instead of picking songs that are worse than Baby, I'm picking reasons why Baby is not worse than those songs. This is gonna be easy.

The Top TenXW

1The lyrics, while repetitive, are harmless

I may not like Baby, but I would rather listen to that song over Nicki Minaj's Stupid Hoe song. I can tolerate Baby, but I would literally turn into a Wretched Egg like Shiro from Deadman Wonderland if I had to listen to Stupid Hoe for even 30 seconds! I'm glad I haven't heard the full song to Stupid Hoe! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Normally this alone wouldn't be at all a justification if say the production was unsalvageable, but you'll see. If the song were to offend my senses, then it would be enough to call it one of the worst songs of, maybe a given year. - WonkeyDude98

Baby isn't bad. It's just a pop song about teenage love. I don't like it, but I don't blindly hate on it due to Justin's personality. - SwagFlicks

Lol yes it is haha

2The production is passable

I actually really like the production on Baby. It's very light and bubbly, something I can't say of a lot of pop these days. Yeah it's bland and generic, but it's better than being an absolute trainwreck. - WonkeyDude98

3People who hate Justin Bieber usually hate him for his personality, not his music

Even if he is very mediocre, most (not all) hate him exclusively for the way he acts, and couldn't name me 5 of his songs. - WonkeyDude98

Not absolutely true. I don't like this song purely on the babyish sound it has. But I agree, this is not the worst song any of us will ever hear...
"Oh my God. Look at her butt..." Ah, now you see... - Britgirl

Kanye West has an EVEN WORSE personality but people like him. WHYYY? - AlphaQ

Yea I agree that Kanye is awesome at rapping but his ego is kind of a problem - AlphaQ

4There is simply worse

I can genuinely confirm that "Coco" by O.T. Genasis is hands down worse than this song. - Mcgillacuddy

It's called Coco? I thought it was called Gogo (granny) for a second so whenever I heard this song I always kept yelling at him that my grandma doesn't love him back. - AlphaQ

5Ludacris' rap verse is solid

The rap actually saved the song. If not for this, Baby would have been as bad as Stupid Hoe and Anaconda.

While nothing special, Luda's contributions are quite the plus for the song. - WonkeyDude98

6Justin Bieber stayed on-beat

Bieber had some pretty great ability to ride the beat, and it made the song a rather comfortable listen, or at least it would be if not for his shrill voice. - WonkeyDude98

7Justin Bieber stayed on-key

Another thing. Bieber may not have a great sounding voice (at all), but he does stay within the song's key. That's probably not even something I could do, though then again I am one of the worst singers I know. - WonkeyDude98

If you want a horrendous song where the singer is constantly off-key look up "Pop Champagne" by Ron Browz and Jim Jones. I would rather listen to a 24-hour marathon of baby than 10 seconds of "Pop Champagne."
