Worst Songs of 2013

Magnolia

The Top TenXW

1We 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. - TheKatieLady

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. - kendyl

Miley says goodbye to Hannah Montana and hello to getting high on party drugs.

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

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

This song makes me wanna kill myself no matter what the time day or situation setting is

The voices are annoying - FerrariDude64

3Wrecking 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.

Again, you all are simple. The song wasn't even bad this time around. You all need to stop factoring in music videos to critique songs. - WonkeyDude98

423 - 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!

It makes me so happy to see 3 Mike WiLL Made-It songs in the top 20, with 2 in the top 5. (Both having Miley Cyrus) - WonkeyDude98

5Best 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" - sryanbruen

More like the crappiest song ever

One Direction has no musical talent what so ever and they should just go away.

This song would be change to Worst Song Ever. - 05yusuf09

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

It will be fun.

7Chinese 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

It's racist! (geishas, which are Japanese appear in the video! ) You're talking about Chinese food! Not Japanese food!

So lazy on this song

8Roar - Katy Perry

This song is so overplayed and annoying. Radioactive and Just Give Me a Reason shouldn't be on here!

Just Give Me a Reason is as bad as this if you hate this, but I like both - venomouskillingmachine

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!

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!?!? - maddyparrot22

Yes! Someone finally found a reason to hate Katy Perry! Wide Awake is and will always suck! Britney Spears is way better!

9The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) - 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?

Out of all the bad songs on this list, this is the one that brings me back to my 10th grade depression, that's how bad it is

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

The biggest reason people put this song in the list is because they think Drake lied. However, I get Drake was trying to convey the message of his progress from the bottom of the rap game and how he became famous. However, the sad part is he fails to clarify it! Therefore, the message is not conveyed properly. This clarification failure puts this song on the list for me. - SelfDestruct

"Proceeds to prove multiple times that he didn't struggle"

11Bubble 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.

This was one of the best - honestly, it's not meant to be taken seriously. As a joke, it's hilarious. Though, as a song, it sucks...

12Love Me - Lil Wayne

Its sexist and disrespectful to women. Its not even a good song - LegitGames12

Let's see...

A dreary, lifeless beat that Mike Will Made It produced? Check.
Rappers that don't sound enthused at all about what they're rapping about? Check.
A chorus so bad that it somehow makes most Death Metal singers sound good? Check.
And some of the most sexist lyrics I've ever heard in a rap song? Definitely a check.

Why would anyone ever buy this?

Any lil Wayne song is horrible. this one is no different

If I knew this was made in 2013, I would've voted for it. - RalphBob

13Gentleman - PSY

He famous just because of the stupid gangnam style and stupid ass dance

Shockingly bad remake on the crappy gangnam style

PSY thinks this song is gonna get even more hype than gangnam style but NOPE!

Straight up bad Gangnam Style. - WonkeyDude98

14When I Was Your Man - Bruno Mars

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.

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 & ...more - theOpinionatedOne

I hate this song and all his other ones. STOP IT BRUNO! - CN121

To me, this song "When I Was Your Man" really makes me want to BREAK the Radio apart!

It really makes you not want to cruse

This is not country, that's for sure.

If you listen to this song I will kill you.

16Suit & Tie - Justin Timberlake

It was one of the best songs of year come on

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.

I really like this song I think it is upbeat and it is one of the best songs of the year.

Why is this here?

17#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!

I'm with another user that it was will's inability to perfect a beat like he did in Dirty Bit (and he copied the beat from it and still couldn't) that sank the song. Bieber is saving it from being one of the worst songs of all time. - WonkeyDude98

The drop has two notes. TWO NOTES. People get annoyed of four-chord pop songs and only hate Bieber's part of the song when his part actually had buildup. The drop is TWO NOTES. It's just so awkward and bland. Leave drops to Major Lazer dude. - WonkeyDude98

I'm enjoying Beiber's verse, then I fell asleep, not sure why.

18Bound 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!

This song is way worse than 23 and Blurred Lines - venomouskillingmachine

19Heart Attack - Demi Lovato

If this song Demi Lovato keep singing about having a heart attack, then she's gonna get a REAL one.

This is one of my favorite songs - - spodermanfan1000

Demi has an heart attack. She needs to stop singing. I hate her music. That's all! Whitney Houston is better.

Why do radio stations play this and consistently ignore Kate Bush? It's sad.

20U.O.E.N.O. - Rocko

This song is what you get when you have a bunch of people in the studio who just don't care what they're putting out.

Basically, you have Rick Ross, trying to act like a pervert with his horrific lyrics. Rocko wastes his talent, and Future is plain trash. - Swellow

Is Rocko even on this? It sounds like he just got Future to sub entirely for him. The beat is a two-note farty synth, with one note trailing behind the other, without any gang vocals, bass, or complexity at all. Every line (including in the verses) ends with "you don't even know it" (try to say UOENO with your mouth closed).

Then we have the rapist Rick Ross. - WonkeyDude98
