21Hit or Miss - Jacob Sartorius

This kid needs to stop making music soon because I am spending way too much money on bleach these days. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

This song is awful. Sweatshirt has over 1m dislikes. WHO THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO MAKE ANOTHER SONG?! I listened to the whole music video and every time Jacob sings, I can feel death. My ears are still recovering from sweatshirt, and this song isn't making them any better. The whole "Hot or Miss" thing makes absolutely no sense, the music video is just a bunch of girls stare at Jacob Bleach Ad and get hurt and Jacob gets a concert that if that actually happened while I was at a beach, I would purposely drown myself. BUT. I will give it credit on one thing. It's not as terrible as Sweatshirt. Sweatshirt will always be the Satan of music.

The lyrics suck. It uses too much autotune. I can't wait until this song reaches 1 million dislikes on YouTube, just like Sweatshirt. I sadly ran out of bleach, time to head to Dollar Tree. - Catacorn

This song. I just. Nope.

22Shout Out to My Ex - Little Mix

Mediocre. Not good, but not bad. Just mediocre. - Swellow

23Dangerous Woman - Ariana Grande

"Arian Grande is only a famous singer for her looks. Nothing more." Learn to spell who you're trying to insult. "Like so many others nowadays, she don't make music, she makes noise! " That's it? Just a generic insult? If I ask you why you hate this song, you'll probably say something like "It's obvious why it sucks". Why does this have 9 likes?

Boring but this game will keep you busy and boring as hell of a game and you can't stop the feeling week when you're submissive out of ten games you have never seen a song that you have never seen and the game will never get better with your hands up and you have to keep playing it all of the game you can beat tattoo games on your phone or something to be seen as the heck week after week of game and the week is the same game will I ever have to keep it to

Arian Grande is only a famous singer for her looks. Nothing more. Like so many others nowadays, she don't make music, she makes noise!

When I listen to this, I too feel like a dangerous woman. I feel so dangerous I could kill horrible music. - AnonymousChick

24Can I Get a Witness - Sonreal

This song is so bad I can't even find words to describe it. It really has to be seen to be believed. - Spark_Of_Life

The beat is pretty good, but he can't sing for his life. - RalphBob

If you want to make a defense for modern music, that's fine. Just please make a Decent point instead of saying "But I am the Man." That sounds like SonReal Masterbated in a Mirror while writing that line. - DarkSideOfRandy

What is music going too? - Music_Lover123

25Roses - The Chainsmokers

This song isn't bad, I just don't like the vocals, and it got old fast as it appeared on the radio way too much.

This was my favourite song how can someone hate this one? I mean come on!?

Best song of 2016. Meaningful and beautiful without ever sounding off-kry or annoying. - Spark_Of_Life

It was really overplayed. - Blingdog24

26Sex - Cheat Codes

I don't think I have heard worse pitch-shifting and layered vocals in my life before listening to this. - Swellow

A 1 hit wonder based on a cover song, which is kinda embarrassing really.

This song just sucks. That's all there is to it. - Blingdog24

Now, a sex song is just something that is utterly retarded to make

27Ghostbusters (I'm Not Afraid) - Fall Out Boy

Just in case you need any more affirmation that Missy Elliott (along with Not That Kinda Girl) and Fall Out Boy are past their prime, we have this...thing. 1/5 - WonkeyDude98

No they ruined the original song

I may be a fan of fall out boy, but this was just too little good and too much horrible in one song. - AnonymousChick

I don't know what's worse the movie or the song

28Black Beatles - Rae Sremmurd

I haven't gotten to talk about this song in much detail as I wanted (even when I specifically reviewed it on RYM), so let's talk about this trash in detail, shall we? BECAUSE IT BLOWS.

I can appreciate Mike WiLL Made-It going for a darkwave vibe with the production, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. The glossy, misty synths keep on unresolving and resolving again in an uncomfortable limp, and any cool vibe we could get from the beat is quandered because the synths are so dissonant and far-removed that they have zero texture or vibrancy.

But it's the lyrics that really drive me over the edge. This is a song where Rae Sremmurd and Gucci Mane compare themselves to the Beatles.

Uh, excuse me?

Not only does this prove their inability to count (there were four Beatles and three of you, not counting Mike WiLL Made-It), it's also proof that they have no idea what they're talking about! It's completely insulting that bottom-of-the-barrel trap-rappers ...more - WonkeyDude98

They have the audacity to compare themselves, two of the worst ever people to stand behind a microphone, to the legendary fab four who made great music. Need I say more?

Barring the comparison that is unquestionably awful... I don't know, it's alright. The beat's your generic yet good cloud rap shtick, and the vocals aren't that insufferable. - Satire

Slim jimmy sounds like DRAM as a child

29Broccoli - D.R.A.M.

This should be at least top 50. This belongs in the dark side of modern hip hop music. I honestly don't have any words for this song except for 0/5 stars. - Mcgillacuddy

This sounds like if Sesame Street tried to make a song about hash. And that isn't nearly as interesting as it sounds. D.R.A.M can't rap for crap and Lil Yachty sounds like he's crying when he "sings" - Spark_Of_Life

This so called "song" #6 on Billboard. I mean, how? This song is awful.

This song is a bunch of crap, don't understand why people are actually listening to it

30Gold - Kiiara

What...even is this? It sounds like random noises anyone could find in your basic YTP sound pack. Kiarra's voice is very whispery and drags out syllables too long. She sounds like a female Tyler Joseph high on acid. Plus, her voice jabs into the lackluster instrumentals at seemingly random times. I didn't even know if was possible to do vocal jump cuts. Did the producers just grab the first junkie they saw on the street outside the studio and get her to record? YUCK. 0/10. - Spark_Of_Life

This song is apparently about how much she doesn't care about this guy. Too bad that the instrumental is lifeless, and the vocal sampling... 2/10 - djpenquin999

Did someone make a collaboration of Youtube Poop videos and combine them into one? This song sure sounds like one, and a bad one at that. - Swellow

Man that's the worst hook I've ever heard. I have no idea why it sounds like that, is the song broken?

31This One's for You - David Guetta

Guetta should probably stop trying to appeal to a young generation, making songs called "Turn me on" in his 40's stops being acceptable and starts being creepy.

To be honest, I like his song "Turn Me On", the only song where Nicki Minaj sings that I can bear. - AnimeDrawer

THAT DROP! The song would have been awesome without it. 0/5 - ProPanda

This is the type of stuff chavs crank up at three AM in the morning when trying to be cool... man, David you should have given up earlier. - Swellow

32Vacation - Thomas Rhett
33No Broken Hearts - Bebe Rexha

I imagine some amateur making this song in his garage. Which is not to say anybody who is amateur and makes music in a garage is bad at making music- the point is I can't believe this was made by a professional. It gets stuck in my head and I don't want it to. The 2000s cliches are irritating: yet another song that features *insert whatever you want here* "in the club", autotune that is unnecessary and drone-like (the singing seems particularly bored and unaffected by the content being sung), and a melody that seems very out of place with the chords. You know when a toddler tries to sing along something and it barely sounds like the melody they are singing along to because they don't understand how to match their pitch? It sounds like what is happening in this song.

Bebe Rexha has been ruining EVERYTHING she touches lately, that is unless it was already terrible to begin with. Between Hey MaMa, Me Myself and I, that one song with Nico and Vinz, and this, I'm not sure this is the same woman who The Monster by Eminem and Rihanna was originally for. This is a grating trap party song. Well, at least Nicki's verse is okay. 1/5 - WonkeyDude98

Even with the painful auto tune, Nicki has a great verse.

I like that song except Nicki

34Selfie - Mark Thomas

I am literally speechless. Everyone who called Jacob Satorius a Justin Bieber ripoff, let me introduce you to a young adolescent they call Mark Thomas. Between the beeping twinkle of a melody, the awkward, generic lyrics, and the vocals which are almost identical to 2010 Justin Bieber if they added more annoying vocal effects, yeah, I hate this. 0/5 - WonkeyDude98

Hello Jacob, meet Mark Thomas, another dumb adolescent with the same screeching, untalented voice as you. Alright, you two work on your collaboration, I need to dash. I've got a massive order of bleach delivered to my house. Bye!

He shouldn't be worrying about girls and should be worrying about his algebra homework.

Jacob sartorius and mark thomas would make a good couple

35Dat $tick - Rich Chigga

A song so bad it ends barely after 2 minutes LOL! And that's not even sped up! - SelfDestruct

I can only guess this is about a car's gear-stick, right? - Swellow

The title itself reminds me of something sexual. - Powerfulgirl10

36P***y Print - Gucci Mane

In case you're wondering, the title comes from the fact that Gucci has so much money in his pockets they look like a...well. The fact that you can make a three minute song about this depresses me. This does not deserve to exist - Spark_Of_Life

Only Gucci Mane could make a song this...eh. -1/5 - WonkeyDude98

This is an epically crude topic to make a song about.

37Hold Up - Beyonce

This song, while one of my least favorites from LEMONADE, is still amazing. - WonkeyDude98

I love Lemonade but this is probably my 2nd least favorite (after Forward). It's still a good song though. Not really worthy of the top 20.

This song is pretty good. I was neutral, but now, I like this song. - madoog

It samples Soulja Boy's Turn My Swag On. I'm done here

38H.O.L.Y. - Florida Georgia Line

So this is what country music has come to. Brain-dead Valley-speak men bragging about their redneck lifestyles and banging women disguised as being "holy". Not a good idea, never has been, and never will be. - Swellow

Florida Georgia line are like nickelback, a band despised by many that manages to sell lots of records.

This song makes no sense. I wish I didn't see this song... country music is getting horrible

39Can't Stop the Feeling - Justin Timberlake

Mediocre. I don't hate it, but it is insanely forgettable. Overplayed to death as well. - Spark_Of_Life

One thing I forgot to mention in my triplet review including this, is that this is one of the few songs I've ever heard that structured wrong. A lot of pop songs follow the 1564 chord progression, because it fluidly leads onto a wide variety of pleasing melodies. This song, on the other hand, uses a 1646 progression, which means the song is completely stationery, and can't do anything with itself without a complete mid-song reconstruction. It actually explains why this song is so bland and energyless. - WonkeyDude98

Even then, it could have worked. Happy worked, mainly because it had color and harmony. This is so dull and lifeless. - WonkeyDude98

Not horrible, but so incredibly bland and generic. It sounds like a cheap ripoff of Happy, except that song worked and was fun. This song just sounds forced and fake.

I am not a Justin Timberlake. I like this song.

40Pillow Talk - Zayn Malik

This song makes me want to vomit. The lyrics are disgusting and Zayn's vocals are abominable. There's a reason why Simon Cowell didn't want him to go solo, and this is precisely it. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

I feel sick and literally angry at him for making such horrible lyrics and nasty videos. Just shows how pop has degraded over the years.

Laying on the verge of "so bad it's good". Zayn sounds somewhat irritating. - Swellow

Ladies and Gents, grab the pillows! It's time to take a nap at this poor attempt at a pop song! *dude...why did you have to drop this hard? *
