The Top Ten

1
We Can't Stop - Miley Cyrus
This song is tasteless and Miley has no talent. She is only famous because of all of the crazy controversial stuff she does for attention. I guess she is so desperate to be famous that she prefers negative attention to no attention at all. Sad, really.

I also hate the line, "Only God can judge us." I mean, that is true, but she's using it as an excuse to do all the bad stuff she wants.

And stop twerking. Please. Just stop.

The Bible tells us to judge with righteous measure, so we cannot judge unfairly or unrighteously. God is our ultimate judge though.
This song makes my ears bleed. Her voice is so nasally and auto-tuned!
I just accidentally voted for this, hm. It's certainly not the greatest by any means, but I also wouldn't call it the worst. I've heard far worse and to be honest, it's catchy.

Everyone seems to take guilty pleasures too seriously and denounce them for being either popular or, well, popular. It's currently popular to hate Miley Cyrus for being "provocative" and what not, but I've heard far worse. Miley's talented and I think "We Can't Stop" is an admirable top 40 hit.

2Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke
This song annoys me! What a joke! An insult to music! Disgusting. I used to like Pharrel but now? And this song makes me hate Robin Thicke. Worst lyrics in history, honestly, who the hello wrote this? Probably the same person who wrote Friday for Rebecca Black. This song is so disrespectful to women. Ugh, the lyrics are so gross! Whats worse is that stupid tune gets stuck in your head, ugh.

dragonfly99

This song makes me wanna kill myself no matter what the time day or situation setting is
Every time I hear it I feel physically enraged, I just want to break something, the lyrics make no sense and Robin Thicke can't sing at all
[Newest]This just goes to show that Billboard has no idea what a good song is. This makes it to number 1, but Don't You Worry Child doesn't get past #5?! What!?!?

3Best Song Ever - One Direction
They stole the melody from Baba O'Riley by The Who. And not only that, they also ripped off songs such as from The Clash, Grease etc. And who are they going to rip off next? Westlife? The Wanted? They need to try to stop ripping off other songs and come up with their own melodies. Utter plagiarists. :(
One Direction didn't steal anything. I'm not huge fans of them but I'm just saying. The producers are Julian Bunetta, Matt Rad and John Ryan whom are the so-called "stealers"

More like the crappiest song ever
One Direction has no musical talent what so ever and they should just go away.
[Newest]It's strange 'cause this sounds nothing like Bohemian Rhapsody

4Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus
Horrible song and stupid lyrics...

sam117

The song is terrible, her voice is annoying and the music video is disturbing and shouldn't have even been allowed on YouTube. This should be at number 1.
This is just so horrible! I don't want to listen to this song or watch the music video.
[Newest]If this was a list of worst music videos of 2013, then sure, this song deserves #1. As for the song itself, it's not too bad, just boring.

523 - Mike Will Made-It
Miley Cyrus is in this song, and has a rap verse. Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J, (real) rappers that I detest just as much, also feature in this atrocity. AUTOMATIC FAILURE! This is, without question, an obscenely terrible piece of music (in reality, a bag of rotting garbage). THIS (SONG) SHOULD NOT EXIST!
This is a song? I thought it was a Air Jordan commercial gone terribly wrong, EPIC FAIL!
Miley Cyrus rapping. Shoot, me, now!
[Newest]Dumb ass music video and dumb ass song

6Harlem Shake - Baauer
I can't think of any other song on this list that's so devoid of anything good. "Best Song Ever" was pretty much stolen from another song, but it still sounds okay. "Blurred Lines" is actually pretty good if you don't listen to the lyrics. Even the god-awful "We Can't Stop" had a tune. But this? This is just noise. Not catchy enough to dance to, no pleasant (or really any) tune, and no redeeming lyrics. The only thing I can say in this song's defense is that it doesn't hit complete rock-bottom like "Stupid Hoe" did last year.
So annoying everyone playing it and dancing shut up!
Stop please I can not take this song anymore
[Newest]The song is not bad but it was responsible for one of the dumbest thoughtless trends on the internet.

7Roar - Katy Perry
I'm not a huge KP fan, but I usually don't mind her too much. But I thought that "Roar" was really beneath her. As she sing/talks her way through one lame, tired cliché after another, I just want to find a way to make it stop! Who let this become a fully realized song, played on the radio and everything. Once you reach this level of fame, don't you pay people to stop you from making such dire mistakes? And the video! She fashions a spear in order to hunt down... A banana? This isn't even "awesomely bad", it's just bad!
This song is so overplayed and annoying. Radioactive and Just Give Me a Reason shouldn't be on here!
I was in a dance class (Which I left because of bad teaching and mean girls) and we practiced this song. Every day, I had to hear it about 45 times. It was SO annoying! The girls there were older than me, they should understand what good music is and get off their phones and remove the wallpaper of their butt (One girl actually had that as her wallpaper). I mean, this sing is so bad! WHAT HAPPENED TO PEOPLE LIKING FLEETWOOD MAC!?!?

[Newest]Katy Perry is one of my least favorite singers ever. The singing for this song, the lyrics- all of it is just plain TERRIBLE. That sums it up.
I think you are terrible. All Katy Perry songs are great in my opinion.

8The Fox - Ylvis
This isn't a serious song. It's a joke. Ylvis themselves said that the song wasn't supposed to be taken serious. It was just for laughs.
How is this considered music? The song is overall horrible, stupid and atrocious. The lyrics are horrible, but that damn chorus... is annoying as hell... This song should be number 1 DEFINITELY, in fact I'm actually ASTONISHED that this piece of garbage isn't number 1. At least We Can't Stop isn't annoying as hell and at least the song (in my opinion) is decent as it is. This song should not have been created and the world would be MUCH MUCH happier and better without this damn, god-awful atrocity. I don't know what Ylvis was on when this was made. Maybe drunk, perhaps?
This song is horrible. It makes no sense. How can this be called a song?
[Newest]No the fox was actually good because it's a new idea! A song about an animal and a joke!

9Chinese Food - Alison Gold
I couldn't even Watch the entire music video. It's that bad. And someone should put that Tae Allan song Mass Text on this list. That song also sucks.
I thought the meaning was something deeper but it's just about food and also I don't like the creativity of the lyrics
Good God... Worst ever!
[Newest]What a dumb song! Oh my god! THIS is what music has evolved to?!?

10Started From the Bottom - Drake
Re-title the song to "First World Problems."
"I guess 'Started From the Middle Caught a Few Lucky Breaks Along the Way and Now I'm Here' just doesn't have much flow to it though." - ADoseofBuckley
Drake did not start on the bottom. He grew up lower-middle class. Eminem was the only rapper that started from the bottom.
[Newest]So fake and boring.

The Contenders

11Gentleman - PSY
He famous just because of the stupid gangnam style and stupid ass dance
Shockingly bad remake on the crappy gangnam style
Better than Gangnam Style
[Newest]PSY thinks this song is gonna get even more hype than gangnam style but NOPE!

12Bubble Butt - Major Lazer
Terrible song like really bubble butt but that makes me laugh
For those of you who don't get it, it was Bruno Mars who kept saying "bubble butt" over and over again in the song.
It's a song about butts made for people to take seriously... What else do I have to say
Guess who said bubble butt bubble bubble bubble butt. (hint: he catches grenades for girls and tells them they're amazing just the way they are) you shocked?
For those of you who don't get it, it was Bruno Mars who kept saying "bubble butt" over and over in the song.
[Newest]Why does this crap get made?

13#thatpower - Will.I.Am Ft. Justin Bieber
Terrible song of will.I. am. This song has awful lyrics and I've heard Justin Bieber worse. Worst song. Worst lyrics. you SUCK Bieber!
This song is retarded in the whole history. Justin Bieber needs to stop singing because he ruined the whole song.
Believe it or not, it's not Justin Bieber thet sank this song. It's will.I. am's complete inability to rap, and this habit he has of drowning the hook in these terrible beats as soon as the verse comes in that ruined it. This also happened in "The Time (Dirty Bit)", but at least he's not desecrating some 80's song this time. Just ruining an okay-ish hook.

14When I Was Your Man - Bruno Mars
First of all, the song is not called "When I Was Your Man" it is called "When I Was Your Giraffe"! Keith Urban already established this when Candice Glover sang this on "Idol". He's just whining... I shoulda bought you flowers and held your hand... Ugh shoot me in the head, just don't make me listen to this garbage! And while I don't agree with the message of "We Can't Stop, " but it's music is at least catchy I have to say. And anyone who thinks "Blurred Lines" is disgusting and "offensive to women" needs to grow a pair start wear them on the outside. "Roar" is probably just critically overplayed, and not half bad in small doses. "Wrecking Ball" is an improvement from the former song from her, and at least not worthy of #3. "Stay" is a beautiful ballad duet from Rihanna and belongs nowhere on this list! "Give It 2 U" is a modern twist on disco in a good way, whereas "Suit & Tie" sucks in comparison to JT's older stuff and is a modern twist on disco in a bad way. Bruno's "Treasure" is sucky in the same way as S&T, and I'm actually just ambivalent towards "Come & Get It" but I thought Bruno redeemed himself from the former two singles with "Gorilla" but I get it's kinda gimmicky. "Feel This Moment" is a great song built around a sample of A-ha yet it remains its own song, and Christina's swooping vocals bring it to life. "Radioactive" is a rock and electronic (dubstep) fusion at it's finest, and belongs nowhere on this list. "People Like Us" is a wonderful self-empowerment anthem with a commanding dance floor beat and angry, throaty vocals from Kelly, one of her best songs ever. "Heart Attack" is OK, a bit gimmicky, but Demi's vocals are phenomenal and holy crap am I still writing? With that I'll stop there.

theOpinionatedOne

I love this song it's not fair
I hate modern music... But this is a decent song.
At least the song is sang with emotion, unlike the electro-dance-pop-techno- Whatever you call it that plays on the big radio stations.
[Newest]To me, this song "When I Was Your Man" really makes me want to BREAK the Radio apart!

15Cruise - Florida Georgia Line
If you listen to this song I will kill you.
It really makes you not want to cruse

16Heart Attack - Demi Lovato
Demi has an heart attack. She needs to stop singing. I hate her music. That's all! Whitney Houston is better.
The worst song writer and actress in history.
If this song Demi Lovato keep singing about having a heart attack, then she's gonna get a REAL one.
[Newest]Why do radio stations play this and consistently ignore Kate Bush? It's sad.

17Bound 2 - Kanye West
All I hear in the song is causing and hello honey boo I hate this song!
If this was worst music videos this would be 1.

SuperheroSith

I can make better music than this! He wasted 3 wonderful songs:( All that I hear is "Uh huh honey" and dirty lyrics!
[Newest]It was supposed to be a joke.

18Come and Get It - Selena Gomez
You can taste the autotune in this song
This song is revoltingly sexist; she's objectifying herself and being a doormat and a masochist. Every time I hear this I feel like vomiting.
If I were a poltergeist, I'd throw something at the Radio if it ever plays this song again.

19Suit & Tie - Justin Timberlake
I don't consider myself a feminist in any way, but I actually found these lyrics kind of offensive. He keeps referring to "it", how he can't wait to touch it, how it's all his. Romantic. And the line, "So thick! Now I know why they call it a fatty! " Sure does make me swoon. I like the song if I just don't pay attention to the lyrics.
It was one of the best songs of year come on
I really don't like it.

20Let It Go - Idina Menzel
When I first went to see this movie with my family in November, I didn't even for once, sit there in my seat at the theater and think, "hmm, this song is inspiring, this song is catchy, this song is deep." I told myself, "Dear God in heaven, this sounds like it was written in a week by a middle schooler and never tweaked or revised over, like it was taken as it was! " if you could place this song into my hands, I would 'let it go' in a heartbeat, no thank you!
One of the annoying songs ever.

gothictomboy66

At first you think its great, then after the 300th time you heard this song and other people singing. Yes, its annoying
ITS not bad. My sister loves it. And its not overplayed. I haven't heard it since April, and, yes, I changed the station every now and then.

If anything, the worst song this year is BUbble Butt.
[Newest]Come on, even Kenny Loggins, the King of the Movie Soundtrack, can do a better song for the most overrated animated film of all time!
