The Top Ten

Friday - Rebecca Black
Awful just awful this is obviously the worst song of 2011 possibly even of all time. The autotuned voice, the awful music video, it all comes together to make the worst attempt at singing I have ever heard.
Seriously? I think Rebecca Black needs to choose a new career path, like... Being a clown, or a dancer? Definitely not a singer! Her song sounds like something from Hannah Montana!
At a ratio of 1:11 YouTube likes to dislikes... Why the living hell is this little weirdo making money?
I think she should become something to tease people in the jail.

2Never Say Never - Justin Bieber
Never say Never? Hey Bieber, watch this. I never want to hear your music ever. I never want to see a trending topic with your name in it. I'm sick of everything about you.


I will always say never...
when someone asks me to listen to justin bieber
No 2?! This should be number 1! In fact this should be rated one of the worst songs in history along with all of his other songs like that 'Baby' or some other useless junk. Ugh, I'm sick of this guy!

3Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO
This song makes my so mad. If I hear ”how can you hate it? Its a great party song” one more time, I'll explode. The song just sucks so bad. Worst lyrics ever. And that stupid m&m commercial that plays it comes on all the time. We get it m&m. We knew you existed before. Your marketing didn't improve, you've just pissed me off.
LMFAO... I wouldn't even count this as music, they can't sing, no drums, no bass, no gutair. I'm 13 and I would love to go back to the 80's were good music egsisted...

I hate this 'band' If you would call it that.
Disgusting and I know it > I hate this song so much < the beat is so annoying and the worst is when the guy says wiggle wiggle its stupid and ugly

4My Jeans - Jenna Rose
Jenna Rose is so selfish and her lyrics are terrible. She deserves to get spin kicked in the face by chuck norris.
Wait... is this a even music? This is terrible! Even Friday by Rebecca Black is better.


Friday was actually a very catchy song. This one... UGH!


I love her! She is so talented! Better than Freddie Mercury! And wayyy better than Michael Jackson! She is sooo col and dresses so niiicccee! I love her! ❤❤💖😃👖

6Run the World (Girls) - Beyonce
definitely one of the worst songs ever. Wait a minute, I said "songs"? I cannot even call it "song". This is real laughing-stock


I thought Beyonce could not make anything worse than Single Ladies or Diva, but I was wrong. Throughout the song, Beyonce keeps yelling sexist lyrics over this dumb march beat. This song doesn't empower women. It just makes feminists look stupid.
Listen to sample

7The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars
They! I think the song is cool and laid back. Bruno mars deserves a thumbs up for this song. Maybe not as good as locked out of heaven but its nice.
This song may not be the best but it is nice & I like it so beat it sent from a ten year old. (chloe gaggiano)
Listen to sample

8You And I - Lady Gaga
It wasn't a hit and was a bit boring, the video had some horrible moments and was not very nice to watch
Listen to sample

9Someone Like You - Adele
SO god damn boring and such a god damn annoying voice. Has 1.5 Words per second. SO BORING!
Listen to sample

10Swagger Jagger - Cher Lloyd
Out of all the music the U.K. gave us, Cher Lloyd gave us the absolute worst. Her lyrics are awful, her voice is herendus, plus the music is annoying. Just the worst of 2011
This song is really really awful. It should be the number 1 worst song of 2011. The song is dreadful and the video sucks!

The Contenders

11Super Bass - Nicki Minaj
Nicki minaj just sounds like a female version of lil wayne. Her voice is squeaky and her lyrics have nothing to do with the title. Its just a bunch of random words and grunts that rhyme


You don't even have to listen to the actually song. All you have to know is that's it's created by this person who make's hip hop a disgrace.
Adele above Nicki Minaj?! Wow.
Listen to sample

12Dance (Ass) - Big Sean
Apparently all you need to do to get a hit song now is repeat the word "Ass" over and over again.
His lyrics are repetitive and he thinks he got money to have sex with lots of women.
This song is so annoying it just repeats the word ass a lot

13The A Team - Ed Sheeran
What's wrong with this song? It's actually really nice...
Listen to sample

14Love You Like a Love Song - Selena Gomez
Sheesh. What does it mean to love like a love song anyway? Making idealistic, empty promises that aren't likely to be fulfilled (Bruno Mars' "Just The Way You Are")? Rough love ("Poker Face", "S&M" come to mind)? Mediocre romancing ("Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad")? Awkward games and uncomfortable metaphors (Mariah Carey's "Touch My Body")? It's a horribly weird metaphor.

Repetitive choruses aren't necessarily bad, but this one is hard on the ears. The instrumental is grating, and the song features one of the worst sound effects I've heard on the radio: Re-p-p-p-p-p-peat? No thanks.
How can it be a bad song. No taste in music!

15O.M.G. - Jenna Rose Listen to sample

16California King Bed - Rihanna
Hop that king bed has head lice because Mrs. Lipsinking needs it!
Listen to sample

17Judas - Lady Gaga
This song is not perfect, to my mind. Actually, there are many poor songs ( for exsample, " Run The World " by Beconce ). But why are there " Man Down ", " The Lazy Song " and some others? I can't understand that.
This song should be the first Lady Gaga song on this list. This makes no sense and it is way worse than You and I.
It sounds like she keep saying "tuna, tuna haha, tuna, tuna haha"!

18Skyscraper - Demi Lovato
We want music, not Disney teenybopper pop. This song does have a message, but Demi Lovato's voice is so weak.
Listen to sample

19Beat of My Drum - Nicola Roberts

20Otis - Jay-Z & Kanye West Listen to sample

21Run For Your Life - Matt Cardle

22Cat Daddy - Rej3ctz
Personally, I think this song is outstanding… and when I say out-standing, I mean this song stands out of the normal music genre… too much.

23Rolling In the Deep - Adele
Friday does not count as a song, so this should be number 1 in this list. This song is so boring and rubbish!


Listen to sample

24Look at Me Now - Chris Brown
Chris Brown's verse on this song has to be one of the worst rap verses of all time. It's so bad that you can hear him giving up with an "I'm done" after rhyming "dick" with "dick", and with "dick", and even with "dick". Eminem's got nothing on this guy's rhyming skills laugh out loud.
Chris Brown, just go away. No one needs to hear you rap about your dick.
If I look at you I might go blind.

Listen to sample

37Perfume - Parade

38S & M - Rihanna
This song is disgusting and just simply dumb
This should be number 1 on the list because this song was banned in countries
Listen to sample

39Words I Never Said - Lupe Fiasco Listen to sample

40Marry You - Bruno Mars Listen to sample

411 1 - Beyonce
What a depressing song. It is quite literally one of worst Beyonce songs ever. Even the video is boring. 1 1 equals 2? Of course it does. Stupid...
Listen to sample

42I Love My Bitches - Rick Ross Listen to sample

43Racks - Y.C.
They don't know what kind of racks they rapping about and plus Future can't sing in autotune voice.

44Countdown - Beyonce
beyonce showed her worst songs in 2011. What a shame. The music video for this song is real plagiarism


Listen to sample

45E.T. - Katy Perry
That song is so good it should not be on this list
Listen to sample

46Bass Down Low - Dev

47My Moment - Rebecca Black Listen to sample

48Dancing Crazy - Miranda Cosgrove
The first part did not rhyme, it is annoying, and it does not even make sense for most of it.
Listen to sample

49Surrounded by Silence - Design the Skyline
Wow. People or so into Rebecca Black that they haven't seen the ACTUAL worst song of 2011, as of yet.

Surrounded by Silence is more like being surrounded by the eerie, ear bleeding sound effects of this song. At least Rebecca Black redeemed herself overtime, but THIS? This is what you could consider terrible. The lyrics are terrible and so loud and fast that even by metal standards, this is stupid. However, the worst thing about the song is the sudden change in the song's tone. It changes so rapidly it hits you straight in the ear. The pacing is messed up. The music video itself is a pain to watch.

Oh, and to summarize the whole thing, even the band themselves said it sucked. What a coincidence :P...

50Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5

51Best Love Song - T Pain
Honestley in my opinion, T- Pain can't sing for anything. All he does is uses auto - tune to make his voice sound all professional.
Listen to sample

52Person of Interest - Rebecca Black Listen to sample

53Grove St. Party - Waka Flocka Listen to sample

54Lotus Flower Bomb - Wale Ft Miguel

55Whatcha Doin'? - Alyson Stoner
Oh No! Not this one! This is one of the worst songs I've ever listened to! Don't ever listen to it! PLEASE!

56Headlines - Drake
All he talks about is how much money he gets and that is not the worst part. The annoyingly repetitive chorus is the worst. Say They Know over 10000000 times and yep, this song is rubbish.
Listen to sample

57Pumping Blood - Lou Reed & Metallica Listen to sample

58The View - Lou Reed & Metallica Listen to sample

59The Story of Us - Taylor Swift
Another one of Taylor Swift's songs about breakups

60Good Feeling - Flo Rida Listen to sample
