Worst '80s Songs

The Top TenXW

1Fade to Black - Metallica

This isn't a bad songs you douches.

WHAT THE.. OH MY CRAP!?! HOW THE CRAP DID THIS GET NUMBER ONE!?! THIS IS MY FAVORITE Metallica SONG BESIDES ONE, AND THIS WAS VOTED THE WORST SONG IN THE 1980's!?! THEN HOW ON BEST Metallica SONGS, IS IT NUMBER 3 ON THAT LIST, ABOVE DISPOSABLE HEROES, RIDE THE LIGHTNING, AND THE SHORTEST STRAW!?! THIS IS JUST PLAIN STUPID.

I think this song is preety damn good, they are good at first four albums. But after that they're nothing

One of the BEST Metallica songs. This song is not bad you idiots. - AggressiveBlaze

2We Built This City - Starship

Don't know why people hate this song so much.

I don't know this song, but I'll do anything to GET Metallica OFF THIS LIST.

This song just flat out sucks. Enough said.

3Pour Some Sugar On Me - Def Leppard

Yes. Especially when you realize definitely Leppard had so many great songs before that.

4Mickey - Toni Basil

I will never understand why or how this embarrassingly bad song exists. Seriously, why was this made, who was it directed to, and how did it chart? Someone please tell me, I have no idea. - worstmusicoftheyear

5Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses

Why the hell is this a bad song. You obviously don't know good music.

You guys know that when you comment to say you love this song you're voting for it to be the worst song, right? Or whatever. I like this song, especially the solo, but I never really was a big fan of Axl's voice. Especially when I was a kid, I used to cry whenever my dad put Welcome to the Jungle because I found it scary. But this song shouldn't be here, honestly. Oh, the irony!

Why in the heck is this song even any where NEAR this list!?!? Amazing vocals, guitar, etc. I love Guns n Roses and this song! - HollyRolo

I hated this the second I heard it, but then I've never been a Guns N' Roses fan. Love the music but hate Axl's singing.

6Heaven Is a Place On Earth - Belinda Carlisle
7Dancing On The Ceiling - Lionel Richie

Lionel songs are all the best. I see no reasons why dancing on the ceiling be rated as 10th worst love songs ever. Don't merely judge a book by its cover, dig deeper and you'll find the reasoning of my objection in this rating.

Metallica at number 1? - gemcloben

Just another song about using drugs in the 80s. This song deserves to be on this list.

8Live to Tell - Madonna

Madonna is the queen of pop

What genius with crap taste in music put Metallica and Guns 'n Roses in this list - Danielsun182

9Muscles - Diana Ross

What the hell?! How is guns n roses sweet child of mine the worst song of the 80's? What retard made this list?! Guns 'n roses sweet child of mine might be the best song of the 80s.

10Heartbeat - Don Johnson

The dumb bastard who made this list put my favorite Metallica and definitely leppard song

The Newcomers

?Midnite Dynamite - Kix

Pop-metal crap, circa 1985. How bands like Poison, Cinderella, etc. Could ever have enduring popularity while all that thrash metal released in 1985 was ignored...

The Contenders

11Sara - Fleetwood Mac
12November Rain - Guns N' Roses

This came out in 1991. If you're gonna hate on an amazing song at least put it in the right list.

Get this song off this list now. - HollyRolo

This is the worst song ever in my opinion

13Like a Prayer - Madonna
14Physical - Olivia Newton-John

This is only on here for its video, right?

15Girls Just Want to Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper

This ain't a bad song. Don't like female empowerment or something?

16Sunglasses at Night - Corey Hart
17Coma - Guns N Roses

This is 1991, I think. It's not 80's!

18Alone - Heart

Nooo! This is one of Hearts masterpieces. One of the best of the 80s not the worst!

19Master of Puppets - Metallica
20Lover's Moon - Glenn Frey
