Worst Songs of 2014

The Top TenXW

1Anaconda - Nicki Minaj

This song is garbage and is sung by a moron who got plastic put in her ass, okay?! Plus all it talks about is butts and sex-this song should not be on the radio at all! I'm not joking! Everyone is singing this song and it's so inappropriate! Plus nicki ninja is a complete skank and spend all her money on fake teeth, Botox injections, boob implants, and a bunch of other stuff I'm not going to mention! Peace!

Yes, more garbage from this twat. - PositronWildhawk

Nicki Minaj belongs in a bin. So does this song

I dislike this song because its about sex and butts ant the song is so POINTLESS - lovingicecreams

2All About That Bass - Meghan Trainor

Meghan tells everyone that they're perfect, while wearing tonnes of make up #strike1

Meghan disses skinny people, then steals a line from Eminem - Kill You, then continues dissing skinny people. Pick someone your own size! #strike2

Meghan pretends to be a big girl symbol, when she is nowhere as big as Adele (whose attitude is just like Meghan's) #strike3

Meghan tells girls to be whatever size they want, but her Prince Charming is an 'ideal' muscle guy. #strike4

The message of the song is about being obsessed with what people think of your appearance, when what you think of yourself is what really counts #strike5

The song is overrated because all the landwhales of Tumblr are buying it #strike6

Overall, it sounds annoying #strike7,8,9,10

What you just said proves that Meghan is nothing but a hypocrite.

Ugh I hate this song so much. The title makes it sound like it's some party song, so when I first heard it, I thought it was gonna be like that. But when I actually listened to it, I suddenly hated it. It's really repetitive and annoying. I don't understand why this song is so popular. - HappyFlower

I thought it would be about the bass as in the different instruments or the bass clef (left hand) but instead it was very annoying, although not as annoying as Happy! - sryanbruen

What's wrong with being skinny? And you should ignore sizes (unless it's actually dangerous to your health). I mean, then skinny people and fat people can feel accepted. Also, it's repetitive and boring.

All About That Bass was freshly annoying. It sounds like an old song. The repetitive vocals "'cause you know I'm all about that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble" sound random. I guess they could not think of any other lyrics than those. I think some people misinterpreted this song. Meghan is not dissing skinny people; she is speaking for big girls. The song has a message about accepting your size. That is all. Anyway, I do not like this song because of how it sounds. - madoog

3Booty - JLo and Iggy Azalea

Fun fact: it took 11 different people to write this song. And together they came up with "big big booty". ? Ah my god, if I ever hear this annoying repetitive song, I am definitely going to break my radio and jump out of a window.

Ouch! Lopez used to make good music, but this is worst then Anaconda, and that is saying something.

What Jlo?! I had no problem with your music but I didn't mind hearing it sometimes but really? The only lines in this song are " Big big booty what you got a big booty? " Yeah it repeats over and over until it becomes just a noise. Besides, why did you bring in Iggy Azalea? But please Jlo, come back to making good music so people who love pop won't be brainwashed by horrible artists. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

It is not that people are brainwashed. They genuinely like the song. - madoog

Iggy should go away and never come back.

4Rude - Magic!

The message of this song:
Guy: Can I marry your daughter?
Dad: No
Guy: Well screw you, imma do it anyways. Why you gotta be so rude?

How can a song be so badly composed, mismatched, and lame, and somehow reach number 1? A white Canadian electric reggae band singing a song about a man trying to get permission from his girl's father to propose her. When he gets refused, he calls her father... well, rude. Despite the man dissing the father and claiming he'll marry his daughter anyway, he's still trying to get his permission! How can much a stupid premise for a song be conceived?! It make Lady Gaga's Telephone look like Bohemian Rhapsody. Scratch that, Lady Gaga can come up with something way better than Rude.

Lady Gaga is pretty amazing at singing. Although Telephone is no Bohemian Rhapsody, it's a pretty good song.

This song is about someone who thinks that a simple use of refusing is very rude and getting a girl without any permission is not rude. Of course this song is bad. - ReakMayhem

Rude is pretty good. The little story is alright. He feels like the father of the girl that he wants to marry is being rude for refusal of letting him marry her. The "why you gotta be so rude" vocals clicked in my head. This is among the few good songs of 2014, aside from the bad songs. This song is a bit catchy. - madoog

5No Flex Zone - Rae Sremmurd

Sick of the charts being clogged like this steaming pile of trash sung by two talentless hacks who have no business being music. You make a song about not flexing, and you flex nonstop in the video? That's like the Price Tag video being full of money and sports cars! Their voices make them sound like 13 years olds who are in the middle of puberty. I miss the good rappers like Biggie and 2Pac. They're turning over in their graves as I type this! Get these losers and their entire discography run over by a steamroller ASAP. - Spark_Of_Life

The song is called NO Flex Zone and Rae Sremmurd said it was about being the real you.

Rae Sremmurd flex the entire song and they were homeless before it.

Rae Sremmurd are a duo of talentless hacks, maybe even the single worst new artist of the decade who have no talent on the mic, Mike WiLL Made-It as a major producer (gotta love dark, dreary beats on bangers), contradict themselves within two bars of lyrics, have nothing interesting to say, and no grasp of humor. It's like a parody of rap. At least 2 Chainz HAD Talk Dirty to make him sound good by comparison. At least Nicki Minaj had Only. At least Justin Bieber had #thatpower. Rae Sremmurd don't have one, and it's highly unlikely they ever will, considering they actually managed to make Nicki Minaj sound good in Throw Sum Mo.

Also, their name is backwards of Ear Drummers. How creative, almost as creative as Silentó, an incorrect spelling and pronounciation of silent in Spanish!

The fact that No Type ...more - WonkeyDude98

I was wondering where the name Rae Sremmurd came from. I did not know that Rae Sremmurd is ear drummers backwards. That is creative and unique. - madoog

Mike Will Made It well-produced this track --- those progressive bells. This is Rae Sremmurd's first song, and I like it. The duo/twins sound like teenagers, but that is not a bad thing. Their voice is bearable. They are the best new artists of 2014, in my opinion. No Flex Zone is good. I give it a 4/5. 2014, the fifth year of the 2010s decade, was a pretty bad year for music, but this song is among the few good songs of 2014, aside from the bad ones. - madoog

Complete garbage

6Fancy - Iggy Azalea

It's basically Icona Pop's "I love it" from 2013, but now with wannabe rich divas! (Wait, both of them had wannabe rich divas). It's just so annoying and it makes my brain explode when I hear it. I'd rather listen to One Direction than this piece of garbage. - ethanmeinster

This is a song that 2 terrible "singers" say that they are cool and fancy. When I listen to music like this I wanna leave this planet

It saddens me to say that I actually think Anaconda is better. Honestly, the song itself isn't good and the singer- oh sorry I mean "rapper" does as bad as you'd imagine. Even worse, this may sound offensive, but she got so many of those snooty girls to believe they could rap and fall flat on their face trying to

Iggy just cannot rap, no matter what nationality she is. Seriously, the lyrics in this song are just bad. - Mcgillacuddy

7Problem - Ariana Grande

I got on less problem without you, (hum, okay, I don't care) I got one less problem without you (You said it twice) I got one less problem without you (can you stop now? ) I got one less problem (SHUT UP! )

I thought "The Way"by Ariana was bad enought, but this is worse

Wait, why is this song on a worst song list? Admittedly, I wouldn't put on a best list or anything, but the song isn't that bad. It even has a verse by Iggy Azalea that's actually pretty good, which is impressive because Iggy Azalea sounds like a dolphin ate Gwen Stefani. Seriously, this may not be God's gift to music, but it should not be on this list.

Extremely overrated & overplayed! What's so interesting about Ariana's voice. Actually she sings like a cat! - Fan_of_Good_Music

People like ariana because there's almost no one left out there that can actually sing, most singers are just buying their way into the industry to be honest

8Shake It Off - Taylor Swift

The lyrics have been written by a 5 year old. "Bakers gonna bake". Thank you so much Taylor for making it clear what a baker does. I thought they flew planes.

It IS "bakers". Apparently as a rhyming comparison. Now get your head out of you know what and listen to actual music

This song sucks so much. I just wish she would go away. This song really is so awful. It's really the most dreadful thing I've ever heard. I hate it so much.

Uh...what?

I've never understood why everyone hates Taylor Swift so much. She's one of the most hated artists here, and probably the only one here that is not warranted even in the slightest.

Let me remind you of how many breakup songs she has: SIX. Not one million, SIX! And I like how people keep saying that we should stop talking about material possessions and talk about real things, and when Swift does just that (and does it pretty well), she gets bashed on like Justin Bieber.

Taylor Swift is a nice person, a good singer, and has a lot of charisma. If she uses autotune, she knows how to hide it well, because I barely notice it. For autotune to annoy me, it has to be a major disturbance from the performance (cough cough Chris Brown).

For Shake It Off itself, the only real thing I can say against it was its overplay. That's it. This is an honest 3.5/5. - WonkeyDude98

Imagine if Taylor Swift broke up with Big Sean!

9Only - Nicki Minaj

The lyrics are very sexual in this song and in the lyric video, it's filled with Nazi imagery. Nazi IMAGERY WITH NICKI SHOWING OFF HER SILICONE ASS! Whoever thought that was ok was either high or mentally ill because that was a horrible time and putting pictures of her cheap fake ass isn't helping either

The video is a prediction of the future if music like this continues to pollute the charts. The imagery represents everything wrong with the music industry.

This is one of the worst songs of all time, but "These hoes couldn't test me even if their name was 'Pop Quiz'" is one of the best insults I've heard in a while.

This is terrible. - madoog

10Loyal - Chris Brown

I swear, every year Chris Brown gets more infuriating. Normally, you can shrug off songs that tell you that the artist stole your girlfriend as being foolishly crass. Not this. Thsi is just plain aggravating. The beat sounds like it was produced by DJ Mustard (considering it was 2014 when this got made, it probably was, he was just uncredited). There's no buildup, no energy, no complexity, and no personality in the beat. It's just a five-note synth line against barely there percussion. Even then, the synth falls out at several moments, adding to the barebones nature of the beat.

This had 16 writers, including all three artists involved. So...why is this so terribly written? Nevermind the intense autotune that you could call syrupy, these performers are bigger jacka**es than actual donkeys. There's very little to say. Lil Wayne is...Lil Wayne. Tyga is...Tyga. Chris Brown is...Chris Brown. They tell you that they bought your girlfriend, then say they don't mess with broke girls. ...more - WonkeyDude98

Now, the Rihanna incident has faded with time, but it's still very bad that someone who does what Chris brown does can release a song called "these hoes ain't loyal", but it's not about how hoes aren't loyal to them, it's how hoes aren't loyal to you. Jeez, someone tell me why we need this guy around?! Is he talented? NO. Is he special? NO. And does he have any charisma? NO! GO AWAY CHRIS BROWN AND NEVER COME BACK AGAIN

Why do you have to bring up the incident? Why do people continue to bring that up like it's supposed to matter? Um. He is talented. He can sing well and colorfully and is charismatic. Chris Brown is who the music industry needs. Music is Chris Brown's passion and career. You are saying he is untalented because you do not like him. - madoog

I know the Rihanna incident happened over 5 years ago, but to me, Chris Brown is just as hateable now as he was then. Almost every song he releases now just demonstrates what a huge tool he is. For example, this song is him bragging that he can pay YOUR girlfriend to cheat on you because women are shallow. Just go away, Chris.

Loyal is pretty good. - madoog

The Newcomers

?Trumpets - Jason Derulo

Worst song I've ever heard. No joke. It's so bad, I laugh every time I hear it. Here's a few sample lyrics:
"Is it weird that your bra remind me of a Katy Perry song? "
"Is it weird that I hear angels every time that you moan? "
And, of course...
"Is it weird that your ass remind me of a Kanye West song? "

"Is it weird that your ass
Remind me of a Kanye West song? "

Need I say more?

Is it weird that people are forced into buying this crap instead of detouring towards the new Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers album?

You went from In My Head to this? Come on, Derulo. You are better than this. Some of the lyrics are weak and odd. The only good thing about this song is that it includes trumpets, which is the name of the song. Right after the singer says "and the trumpets they go...", trumpets start playing. Other than that, this song is bad and annoying. - madoog

?Literally I Can't - Play N Skillz

Yeah. This is garbage. It is like a recycled form of another terrible song. The word literally was used incorrectly. Literally means really. The way the person say literally is annoying. - madoog

This songs is supposed to be a joke. Take it as a joke

Literally I can't listen to this awful song. I can't believe redfoo went from underground rapping in the 90s to LMFAO/this trash.

The Contenders

11Lookin' Ass - Young Money

People, you have to vote for this or at least put it high in a remix of this list, simply to state that it's a pile of blood and pus filled crap. How can it even be called a song when, if you don't already have a bleeding hole in your head, you want to make one as soon as you hit play? One of the very worst songs of this year, without a shadow of a doubt. - PositronWildhawk

One of the most popular songs among convicted murderers.

The song's title makes it sound like it just loads of cursing. No thanks. - SubliminalMessages

Young Money: The label that makes no sense. - SwagFlicks

12#selfie - Chainsmokers

This song isn't real music. It's basically an annoying voice complaining about selfies and this guy named Jason over a beat, which I'm pretty sure was stolen from "Gentleman" by PSY (you know, the Gangnam Style guy). This shows that the quality of music is going downhill. In 20 years, the teenagers of today will turn on the radio, only to hear white noise. They will say to their spouses, "Hey, remember Nicki Minaj/Justin Bieber/Shawn Mendes? That was some good music."

Why is this song on this list? ITS NOT A REAL SONG. It's supposed to be making fun of vapid, self-centered girls who go to clubs 5 nights a week, drink a lot, get ticked off over other girls in the club, and take a lot of photos of themselves. It's not an actual song, not even close to a song! It's a joke, get over it

The girl isn't the lead singer of the chainsmokers, she's a hired voice actress and nothing else, plus this song was never played on the radio, NOT EVEN AT A CLUB WHERE THIS STUFFS PLAYED. It's another viral song made to make fun of dumb vapid chicks

Chainsmokers, you've officially redeemed yourself for making this crap by making "Don't let me down", "Roses", and "New York City" - Moorefamval

13Amnesia - 5 Seconds of Summer

I think they had amnesia while they were making this song - RockStarr

Ughhh so horrible and such a stupid and inconsiderate topic. Some people actually suffer from amnesia and people like you are sitting there wishing for it because of your stupid high school drama?!

This song I iconic. Its one of their good songs. It catchy and they actually put thought into lyrics

Just like the horror game

14Hangover - Psy

Psy just really needs to stop. He gained popularity with "Gangnam Style," but obviously he's not done yet. Even though we are. Sorry, Psy. You've enjoyed your 15 minutes of fame. Now please stop making music in the US.

Stupid, repetitive, disgusting (cue the animated vomit), shallow, this song is about nothing! "Oh yeah, we get drunk everyday and become hungover, time and time again". How's that funny? How's it creative, or new, or original? Why does it exist? Why?

Gangnam style and gentleman were not bad but this is just horrible also what snoop dogg

This is great. - madoog

15Bang Bang - Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj

Hate Ariana Grande. Her voice is really irritating and Jessie J's voice is so high pitched that any deaf person can hear it and Nicki Minaj is the worst rapper ever. God I hate hip hop.

You shouldn't HATE someone for how they sound, and Jessie J is not high pitched, it's called soprano. And Nicki is a better rapper than you'll ever be. (Trust me, I don't like a lot of her music either, but some is okay. I like Eminem better. ) - Derpyderpderpderp

This song is so sexual and intolerable. Little kids listen to this song. And by little kids, I mean four to eleven year olds! Can you imagine them going around singing this song without even knowing what it means? I would be terrified as a parent! Too much pop music today is way too sexualized, it makes me ashamed that most of my peers listen to this "music" blindly. A little over decade ago, music like this would have never been excepted. Where did we go wrong in humanity? - LostDream258

I do like the song, even if Ariana and Nicki are here (they both suck). What I don't like is that it's played on the radio. This song is sexual, and little kids can heart it and sing it. Just imagine a 10 years old singing about sex

Oh my goodness! In school our teacher plays music and she played this song while Lunch Time and everyone was singing it! And eating lunch And our class is close to a Library and little kids were having lunch there, and they was second graders singing this singing this song without not knowing what it means! - GalaticStarArtist12

16Spark the Fire - Gwen Stefani

I heard this get called the worst song of the year once. I don't think that, but that's pretty reasonable. - WonkeyDude98

I can't tell if this is a song, a rap, or just chanting African prayers into a microphone while the higher African preists play a traditional drum beat to accompany the ancient prayers

17Talk Dirty - Jason Derulo

It's bad enough that a talentless hack like Jason Derulo still has top 5 hits 4 years after he should've been forgotten, but this song puts him at almost a Chris Brown level of hate for me due to the utterly moronic and sexist lyrics. The awful vocals don't help either.

They over play it way too much it's getting annoying and my friend sing it because they just wanna annoy me

This is the worst song I ever heard its like a 3 year old wrote this crap, I wouldn't listen to this song if it coated my life

I personally think that that 2 Chainz is the better than Jason Derulo on this song, also it's now in my opinion the only good part of the song. The beat was good. The music video sucked, both Jason Derulo verses suck, but the chorus was good. Overall, it's a mixed bag

18We Dem Boyz - Wiz Khalifa

As much as I despise songs like "Anaconda" or "Fancy", the artists who made them at least somewhat tried. Granted, they just turned out to be annoying, but they at least tried harder than this crap. "We Dem Boyz", like "Started From The Bottom" the year before, sounds like it was recorded to see just how little effort it could possibly take to put out a song.

Really? "We Dem Boyz" talk about pathetic song-writing... - MeaganSaysHI

I honestly thought he was praising God because it sounded like was saying Allah which is Arabic for God and Khalifa=Arabic word

This song is terrible. Pass. - madoog

19Wild Wild Love - Pitbull

Pile of utter trash. It is only March 4th as I type this, but it should be number one already.
Update: I couldn't have predicted Anaconda. - PositronWildhawk

And yet another crappy song from Pitbull

I feel like every sentence ends the same way. The singing is good-until pitbull starts rapping. The lyrics are good-until pitbull starts rapping. And the beat is good-UNTIL PITBULL STARTS RAPPING.

This, We Dem Boyz, Only, and No Flex Zone should switch around with Happy, Problem, Shake It Off, and Fancy. - WonkeyDude98

20Pills N Potions - Nicki Minaj

I don't think this should be this high in the list. Nicki Minaj sucks, yes, but this song is actually quite good, unlike Anaconda of course. - SelfDestruct

This song is one of the most painfully average songs of the year. Which is still a giant improvement over Nicki's other songs, but still not really good. The lyrics are still a mess. Is this song supposed to be a brag rap or a song about drug addiction?

This is actually a nice song, a shocker, considering it's by Nicki Minaj. by the way, I think (not 100% sure) that she writes her own lyrics.

This is a better Nicki Minaj song, but I still don't really like it.
