21Heart 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.

22Let Her Go - Passenger

The vocals sound like a little gremlin is singing for the first time in it's life...

Every time I hear this song I want to hurt someone... Mostly myself so I'll never have to hear this awful song. This guy learned to write lyrics from the "Dust in the Wind" and "Every Rose has its Thorn" school of rock. And oh, the lyrics... How deep they are, how insightful! And that odd, pretentious voice you use to sing the song which makes you sound like a old, wizened elf... Brilliant!

The vocals are just boring, and there's really nothing in it. And I mean NOTHING.

To respond to a comment below, it's not just his voice. (Which is awful) But the production, which is so minimalist that I can barely hear it, and the lyrics which are focused on pissing on you for letting a girl go.

23Gas Pedal - Sage the Gemini

This song is a complete and utter failure. The rappers sound bored and clearly don't give a about their lyrics or delivery. The beat is depressing and lifeless, and does not make for a good party song. No redeeming qualities whatsoever.

I swear, someone is making duplicate accounts and putting the best artists of the year like Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Jackie Evancho, and OneRepublic on top of their lists. Suspiciously, they all have Gas Pedal, Love Me, and 23 all as honorable mentions.

I sense that a certain someone is controlling this. - WonkeyDude98

I'm actually put off wanting to drive when I hear rubbish like this. No, seriously. It's as if Sage was asleep in the studio and someone hit the record boring and recorded his sleep talk, then they turned the snoring into beats, and there's nothing redeeming to help out the song. - Swellow

This song is quite good. - madoog

24Suit & 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.

2522 - Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift's 22 at 22nd spot. Laugh out loud

I never liked Taylor Swift, her inability to write songs and sing isn't even worth arguing over because of how obvious it is. The only thing she knows to write about, for the past 4 albums, is boys. She also only knows how to curl her hair and wear red lipstick, like every single time you see her. So it's no surprise this song was an attempt to make her look like a care-free 'hipster'. She knows nothing of hipsterism, she's a mainstream artist.

Too much autotune.
She sounds like Katy Perry.
She became a singer by telling people that she is such a "country cutie" and this song is like the worst pop song ever. It doesn't make any sense, it just reminds us how old she is by telling that she is "feeling 22".

Taylor, just stop, you're not 22 anymore.

26Treasure - Bruno Mars

Seriously who the heck says thiss? It is one of his best songs and there's nothing offensive or language about it that makes it awful. How often do you find such a nice happy song these days?

I hate Bruno Mars. He can't sing, he clearly has no idea what a relationship is, and is the most pretentious thing ever. The proof: this song...

In my opinion, he is one of the greatest singers of this generation.

Why would this song be hated? Like, what's wrong with it? Is it the lyrics? Bruno's voice? What is it? Bruno's voice is good and there's nothing wrong with the lyrics so what's the problem here? - Mcgillacuddy

Treasure is good. There are too many good songs on this list. - madoog

27Let 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!

AWFUL song. Idina Menzel is a terrible singer, and Frozen must die IMMEDIATELY. Every time I see some Frozen related item in a store, I just feel so, SO sorry for my generation.

When I was in elementary school I liked anything Frozen. Things change. This song is SO OVERPLAYED AND SO OVERRATED.

This song is annoying. - madoog

28Beat It - Sean Kingston

This sounds like its trying to rip off the Michael Jackson song, but the original version is actually GOOD. - Gunner224

I think I'm gonna make this my new Jason DeRĂ¼lo/Black Eyed Peas. I ain't gotta lie, no.

The only thing I'll give it was the behind the scenes video was absolutely priceless. - WonkeyDude98

29Alone - Falling In Reverse

He's egotistical as hell and annoying too. He thinks he's god, so basically he's Kanye West. Wait, no. That's an insult to Kanye. This dude rambles on and on about how he's so much better than you in the verses and then the chorus is a colossal mess about how he doesn't want to be alone. What? He's basically the white Future. That's right. I said it. Worst song of 2013 hands down, possibly worst of the decade.

To think this guy used to be in Escape the Fate, now he's stooped as low as to go the Auto-toned rap route. Utter shambles.

I probably would've voted one of the more overplayed songs that annoyed me, but... Oh god, that vocalist. That guy just completely sank this song to the absolute bottom of my list.

If there's one thing I can give this song, it's probably one of those songs that reach that level of being "that bad". - WonkeyDude98

30Wake Me Up - Avicii

WHAT?! How could anyone hate this song?

THIS SONG IS LEGENDARY! Avicii is one hell of a DJ.

Who in the world put this song on the list... - spodermanfan1000

This song is unique and great --- the vocals, superb. - madoog

31Feel This Moment - Pitbull

I'll admit, it's a dance song you can actually dance to, but the dance sequence is plagiarized from Aha's Take On Me. Also, Pitbull. Christina is also not really coherent in this song. I give this a 1/5.

What a shame that my friends are absolute retards. They were having a dance and they had suggestions like Hello and Hit the Quan. But they decided they were too good for a dance song you can dance to (this one). Why? Because they couldn't find a clean version with lyrics. Because you need lyrics to dance to it. - WonkeyDude98

My pick for worst song of 2013, generic dance crap, Christina Aguilera, who actually sounded good in Maroon 5's Moves like Jagger, is unbearable in this. Resulting in her just repeating the same lyrics over and over as loud as possible. Pitbull being his ever cliche self, and the cherry on top. The ruining of Aha's 80s classic Take on Me. that alone puts this as the worst.

Christina ruins herself by collaborating with Pitbull, who goes ahead to send the song flying to rock bottom. The dance sequence is taken from Take On Me (which had one of the best instrumentals I have ever heard), and the lyrics stink. - Swellow

This isn't too bad, I mean, sure, it steals Take On Me, but I thought that was a good song according to practically everyone. Though, Pitbull drags this down. 3/5.

32I Love It - Icona Pop

Could have been written by a 5 year old, #1 in my book

"I crashed my car into the bridge. I don't care! "

Why thanks for reminding us about the endless pile of cash that you celebrities have to blow on cars and bridge damage.

Vapid, Boring, Insipid, Tedious, Unimaginative, Bland, Uninspiring, and Meaningless crap.

I Love It is really catchy and so cool. - madoog

33Gorilla - Bruno Mars

Nothing like a love song that makes you envision apes having sex.

This song should be in the top ten. If Bruno Mars is going to "make love like gorillas," then someone is bound to get seriously hurt. Not only that, but the song just sounds more depressing than whatever he wanted it to be. Now I'm afraid to go to the gorilla exhibit at the zoo.

I really like Bruno, but I just can't get with this one. I'm no expert in gorilla fornication, but somehow, I just don't think that "making love" is the most fitting term. The thought of "You and me baby, making love like gorillas" just seems kind of scary.

Zoophile alert!

34Give It 2 U - Robin Thicke

This song is plain disgusting. I only like Kendrick Lamar's part.

This song plain sucks and is literally drowned in nothing but auto-tune. Robin Thicke in my opinion, tries WAY to hard!

For a rapper who puts out such amazing albums, Kendrick sure has some god-awful guest spots.

This electronic track is awesome. - madoog

35Pour It Up - Rihanna

WHY IS IT ALL THE WAY DOWN HERE? THIS IS PROBABLY THE WORST SONG AND WORST VIDEO I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED! OH MY GOD WHEN I HEARD IT I LOST FAITH IN HUMANITY!

I love Rihanna, but this song is boring

Pour it up pour it up. Watch us all throw up. Hate this song so much.

This song is cool. - madoog

36Say Something - A Great Big World

I am apparently one of the few who hates this song, but here is my reasoning. It builds up to nothing. It tries so hard to be emotional but never does anything to provoke a response. It is just a simple piano number with whiny lyrics over it. "Say something, I'm giving up on you" mixed with semi-cryptic lyrics over a sad piano number is not emotional. It is boring and poorly written. In fact, without Christina's name attached to this track I doubt it would have made it onto the charts at all.

Like a great big world of embarrassment, this song is so stupid and sounds like a dying Bibarel while Christina sounds like a dying Diggersby. How come no one put this song in this list and people put great songs like Gas Pedal, Freaks, Berzerk, Rap God, etc. in this list instead? Because they never heard such great songs (not Say Something you idiots). I vomited while hearing this song 3 times and this song makes me wanna bang my head on the walls a billion times per microsecond causing me to die. One request, please vote this song as one of the worst songs ever. This song sucks like Royals, Team (Lorde), Roar, Dark Horse (Katy Perry), Counting Stars (Onerepublic), and Demons (Imagine Dragons). A Great Big World, Is There Anybody Out There? Yes there are, those you controlled (all 7 billion people excluding me). SO shut up and suck it up, RETIRE you IDIOTS!

This song made me cry when I first listened to it! From alec, 11 year old dj

37Talk Dirty - Jason Derulo

Stinks. The horn makes me want to rip my ears off. - Therater2

Nice beat, wrecked by Jason Derulo. Overall though, his best song. That's not saying much, is it?

39Stay - Rihanna

MUSIC. VIDEOS. HAVE. NOTHING. TO DO. WITH. THE SONG'S. QUALITY! This is a great song, just because it didn't have a great video doesn't mean that it's any WORSE! - WonkeyDude98

She did her music video in the bath. Rihanna, come on. In the bath? Out of all of the other ideas in mind she chose this one...

I hate the song to

I laugh when I hear this song, thanks to Bo Burnham. "Round and around-and around and around. I like this game"

I do not like Stay. - madoog

40Scream & Shout (Remix) - Will.I. Am

Britney Spears needs to stop, her reign has been long over and no one cares about her anymore. Her attempt to dazzle us with her stupid british accent in this song was something you could laugh about forever.

The most dumbest songs in history

This is literally the most retarded song I've ever listened to. It makes no sense whatsoever, and it is SO overrated! It was on the radio 24/7 and I never actually got to hear the songs I actually liked, this is the same case with Royals. - NerdyPweeps

There's a remix?
