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

We Can't Stop is a dull song about partying. I did not know that Mike Will Made It produced this. This song just goes on and on. This analogy: it's like a train that keeps heading straight slowly and not changing direction. The song seems to go nowhere. It is not terrible, but it is dull. This song tries to make the listener cry. - madoog

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

It has that good vibe. I like Blurred Lines. - madoog

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.

This song appears to be sweet on the outside but is sour on the inside. Later on, the song is all blasty. Both the song and music video are bad. I am not disliking this song because of the music video. The music video is separate from the song and does not affect my evaluation of the song. I do not like this song. - madoog

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!

This song sounds loony and tries to lure people and bite them with venom. It is unlikable. Do not listen to this song. I repeat. Do not listen to this song. - madoog

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.

Such an ironic title...

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

I actually like this song. I like those awesome beats. It is addictive and impressive. - madoog

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!

This is the closest thing to not being a song at all

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

This song is quite unoriginal, and I do not care for it. - madoog

9Started 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"

10Love 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

Love Me has a dark atmosphere, and the beats are hard. I like the melody. This is good. - madoog

The Newcomers

?Best Day of My Life - American Authors

This song is annoying and boringly happy. The woo woo ooh hoo hurts my ears. This song only got popular and got airplay because their name has the word American in it. I got sick of this song coming on on the radio. - madoog

?Latch - Disclosure

The Contenders

11The 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?

This song deserves to be on the list. It is terrible and annoying. - madoog

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.

This song is not that bad. - madoog

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

14Bound 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!

I like this song. - madoog

15U.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

This song is literally about people not wanting to know something, but they take it to heart so badly (fun fact - every lyric in this song has "you don't even know it" at the end) it only gets worse. And then we have the infamous S&M joke in it... - Swellow

This song sounds good. - madoog

16When 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.

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!

I love the song so much

17Karate Chop - Future

Yeah. When Future is the better rapper on a song, you know that the song is abysmal. He was in all of 2013's worst moments, working with Rocko and Lil Wayne to tear the year down.

Instead, a rapper I usually don't mind, Lil Wayne, brought it down to near unspeakable lyrics. Where U.O.E.N.O. was more consistently bad until Rick Ross, Karate Chop was more of one violently bad moment.

But it might have possibly been the worst moment in history, as Lil Wayne metaphorically uses Emmett Till in a way not even Insane Clown Posse would because it was so bad. - WonkeyDude98

Even without the terrible Emmett Till lyric, this song could not even be saved by 2Pac or Notorious B.I.G., not even Eazy-E for that matter. An abysmal beat put atop the watery vocals make the song feel like a boring and failed club song. - Swellow

For once I can't even blame Future for sinking yet another song. This time it's Lil Wayne's fault for letting loose the single worst rap lyric of all time.

"Beat that ***** up like Emmett Till".

I do not like this song. - madoog

18Cruise - Florida Georgia Line

It really makes you not want to cruse

This is not country, that's for sure.

Nah, it's a pretty good song. The remix is good too. - Catacorn

If you listen to this song I will kill you.

19#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

This song is too much. - madoog

20Suit & 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.

Uh, I like this song, it shouldn't even be here let alone the top twenty.
