Worst Songs of 2013

41The Way - Ariana Grande

I can't take this crappy song anymore!

This is a great song, how is it #29 on this list?! It peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100. That's pretty hard for a debut single. Her vocals are amazing and her vocal range is extremely high. Seriously, how could somebody hate this song?

We hate this song because love songs are extremely terrible nowadays and her vocals are high pitched and the lyrics are dumb. And the Billboard has a terrible taste in music.

This song sounds a lot like those "Thugs need love too" songs from 2000-2002. Thankfully, there's no Ja Rule on this one, so it doesn't sink that low, but Mac Miller isn't very good either. Ariana Grande at least sings decently here, pretty much just like all the other similar songs from that era.

I hate her music. - funnyuser

42Just Give Me a Reason - P!nk

Nate Reuss (the nasally lead singer of fun. ) is in it. Need I say more?

Not just worst of 2013 the worst of all time

Needs to be higher. This song is trash.

43Dark Horse - Katy Perry

Obviously one the worst songs of 2013. Someone help explain why it is even above disaster (<1/10). Katy Perry has the permanent effect of Brain Control, making everyone be her minions and forcing them to buy all her stupid songs especially this piece of junk. Juicy J screwed up his whole verse and the beat, or man, it is stupid. People really need some help getting their minds back and maybe they will realize how much of a pest Katy Perry is.

Has nothing to do with a dark horse at all. My guess is she wanted to take some old clever sounding phrase or whatever, and make it into a bad song in hopes people would think she has wisdom. Beat, stupid. Lyrics, like a 6th grade girl wrote them. The addition of 'Juicy J', doesn't make you look gangster. You're an awful, mind controlling, candy coated woman who knows nothing about real music and is sexualizing young girls because you're the only other pop star there is.

Why is this song overplayed? There's one lyric that has to do with jeffrey dahmer. That guy was a cannibal for crying out loud!

Should be higher, this is boring.

44One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks) - One Direction

Whoever let these mediocre children ruin a Blondie classic should be shot. Why? Why? What did the world do to deserve this monstrosity? When it comes to cover tunes, unless you can improve on it somehow or totally make it your own, don't bother. FAIL!

They did this video to support a children's foundation, how can you call that mediocre?! And I believe this is a GREAT way to get your kids to get into old songs, it worked on me. And they definitely made a great job. This song doesn't deserve to be here.

They did this cover for a kid's foundation while there's other stars that won't care about those kids. it should not be on the list because they did a really good job

45Timber - Pitbull

This songs is a huge disgrace. It sounds so bad and is so overplayed in radio stations. And what the heck, it reached no. 1 on Billboard. Please it is the worst song I have ever heard.

The sound of that harmonica and Kesha's atrocious vocals alone make it perfectly deserving of the top spot in this list. They are ear-piercingly bad. - Ross115

Pitbull can't sing. And that's that!

Whenever I hear this I cover my ears... its poison! It's the worst song in history!

46Story of My Life - One Direction

There's many other bad songs that should be highter. This song is great and it should not be on the list

I love this song and I think that one direction is cool

It's not bad but its overplayed to the point of overpopulation.

The only GOOD song by One Direction

47Mass Text - Tay Allyn

This must be #1. You know its bad when katy perry roar is apparently worse than this according to most people.

From now on my Favorite song is friday that's how bad this song is. - Aguythatpeopleignores

I know this song was a joke but still its terrible

48Right Here - Justin Bieber

I've never even heard this song, but I clearly don't need to in order to say it sucks, it's just common sense now. If it has the name 'Justin Bieber' attached to it in anyway, it flat out sucks regardless.

This is one of the cheapest sounding songs I've ever heard. It just feels so...fake. And by that, I mean the instrumentation and production. - WonkeyDude98

I hate Bieber period but this song made me wanna kill myself

I would love to write a 6 page essay on how he ruined the world of music, but I don't think this website would allow it.

49All that Matters - Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is so damn annoying with his little girl 5 year old voice. Ever time one of his songs come on, I rush to go and get some ear phones. I mean, who would not.

GRR! This song belongs in the top 10s. Justin Bieber, GO TO HELL!

I especially hate the parody versions.

50Acapella - Karmin

In this song, there's a part where she says " watch me do it in falsetto" then makes the ear-piercing noises of a chicken getting screwed in the wrong hole

Terrible. At least they redeemed themselves with their No Flex Zone cover. - Swellow

"Watch me do it in falsetto"

No actual falsetto, just squawking. - WonkeyDude98

51I Am a God - Kanye West

You are a complete failure, not a god. - Swellow

Lol, Kanye West is sooo big headed when I found out thids song exists, I laughed out loud, because it's sooo cringy - Iamcool

52All Gold Everything - Trinidad James

This song counts because once 2013 started, that's when it gained success.

How is this not higher? This is an insult to hip-hop.

This song has so many stereotypes it's almost racist. - WonkeyDude98

53Royals - Lorde

Honestly? This should not be below when I was your man. It also happens to be behind Stay, Just give me a reason and Get lucky. When she is singing, It looks like she is on a drug trip. Not only that, but the lyrics, despite having a great meaning, are dull and lifeless~ Just like lorde's god awful singing. To add insult to Injury, she won either 2 or 4 grammy's. But hey, the people choosing the grammy's have no idea what music is. For example, did you know that The Rolling Stones and queen never won a single award?

This song needs to be way higher in this list! Number 1 in this list! How is this song so low? Perhaps this list is voted on by trolls who hate Gas Pedal, which is the best songs of 2013. This should be cut off from the best songs of 2013 in this list. Just because she is young does not mean she is not talentless. She is talentless.

P.S. Can someone please add Bridge Over Troubled Water by Jackie Evancho in this list, please? That song is as horrible as this song.

Gas Pedal is not a good song, it's literally the worst piece of garbage I ever heard. - Swellow

You are kidding me, right? This is only #57?! This song is just plain retarted. It makes no sense. This is the only song of 2013 that beats radioactive for me. The only thing that can make this song worse is the music video! God, WHY?!?! Whoever put this song at #6 for the best songs of 2013 are stupid people with no value. God, There are so many stupid people in the world!

Not necessarily bad, but I grew a hatred for it at the VMA awards of 2014. - WonkeyDude98

54Turn Down for What? - DJ Snake & Lil Jon

Why would you even need to rate this song? The first millisecond of it should make you say "God no" but of course, there are teenagers that want to look hood or gangster, so they all gobble it up when they're all playing the same game. But being on the outside of it all, it's funny to watch a bunch of stupid teens fight to be the coolest when not a single one of them will ever know real music.

Doesn't make any sense. All that they say is Turn Down For What? Don't even know what they're saying except for that. Not music. - funnyuser

Are we being asked to turn down the street? Turn the lights down? Or more importantly, turn this song down and off... That would make a lot more sense...

This is just a turn up song. It doesn't need to be meaningful to be good. If it has a strong beat, then it's fine with me, because I turn up to it. - Mcgillacuddy

Turn down the song!

A white guy with an acoustic guitar song. Yippee.

56Get Lucky - Daft Punk

While not a song I would typically enjoy, it's surprisingly a very good song for me. Mostly because of the amazing instrumental. - SwagFlicks

I am submitting my most favorite band against me. The first three albums were epic. Discovery was the peak, and Harder Better Faster Stronger was their best. But, the middle to end of Random Access Memories was HORRIBLE! And this song just made it worse. This song is not Daft Punk. It's Pharrell Williams. The worst man to have ever been in a song with DP. - Wafzal2

Not even one of the three best off of that awesome album Random Access Memories, and it's still awesome! How is it here? - WonkeyDude98

I do not like this song. - madoog

59Lolly - Maejor Ali
60Team - Lorde

Lorde's failed attempt to prevent people remembering her as a one hit wonder

What is she and her group saying stop slurping up your words Lorde just stop - Epic123

What, this song is great. How did this get so high anyway? - WonkeyDude98

This song is good. - madoog
