Top Ten Worst Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Broccoli - D.R.A.M. Broccoli - D.R.A.M.

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

What a stupid song. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

62 Go 4 It - Corey Feldman Go 4 It - Corey Feldman
63 By Chance - Rae Sremmurd

This is absolutely terrible, so by Rae Sremmurd standards, highly above average. - WonkeyDude98

This song is annoying. How he repeatedly says "by chance" and the annoying instrumental - madoog

Major disappointment but yeah, I heard worse. - SelfDestruct

64 Friends with Benefits - KSI & MNDM Friends with Benefits - KSI & MNDM

You guys think that Panda's lazy? At least it had a little bit of variety. The first and second halves of this song are literally the same. - SwagFlicks

Let me elaborate. The instrumental, while better than most party beats today, still sounds extremely tired and unoriginal. And it's painfully obvious at the watered-down drop. KSI and MNDM (sorry, &) sound extremely uninspired (especially at the second verse and chorus) and sound like they did their contributions in one take. And the emphasis on the B in the final two bars of the chorus gets really old really fast. Oh, and I mentioned this before, but both halves of the song are the same.

At the very least, Panda had energy. It had variety. This has none of that. - SwagFlicks

65 Side to Side - Ariana Grande Side to Side - Ariana Grande

I wish people stopped liking Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. I think that they actually want to have sex with each other. What a bunch of losers.

This song is horrible and so is Ariana Garbage.

People obviously don't have taste in music by putting this song on the list, this song is amazing

Honestly, I kinda love this! I still feel like Ariana Grande has a ways to go before she has genuine sensuality, but honestly, the great reggae production not only does me so many favors, but the subject matter...

*laughs* Not even Nicki Minaj's verse could make this more gloriously dirty! 5/5, maybe even better than Into You! - WonkeyDude98

66 Frankie Sinatra - The Avalanches Frankie Sinatra - The Avalanches

This song is awful. Now, the sampling and instrumental is fine, but what does it have to do with Frankie Sinatra in even the most abstract sense? Nothing. Also, there is no chemistry whatsoever between between Danny Brown (who butchers most of his lyrics) and MF Doom (who sounds like he's been in hiding for several years and for a good reason). Really, I've grown to hate MF Doom and his elusive, phantom styles. Initially, I had high hopes for this song as the lead single from the Avalances album. But, it was doomed from its conception, pun intended because it was MF Doomed. You have an incoherent Danny Brown, some really atrocious lyrics (Frankie Sinatra was mentioned 11 times - none of which has anything to do with him) and 4 minutes of stretched music and verbiage that would make any rational mind wonder what the F they just heard. One of the worst songs ever by the Avalanches.

67 Snapchat - Soulja Boy

Does anyone actually give a crap about Soulja Boy anymore? I haven't even seen any of his singles charting since 2010 or so. - Zach808

I was looking at new rap music to find material for my list, and when I saw this I expected the worst. Soulja Boy failed even then. - WonkeyDude98

What even is this? Like, I've never heard of it but I can already tell from the title and "artist" (using that term lightly because Soulja Boy) it's either so-bad-it's-good or just crap. I'm not gonna listen to it to find out because at the end of the day, I don't care about Soulja Boy.

Soulja Boy needs to retire pretty much as desperately as Madonna. Since the first, every terrible single from this guy is worse than the previous. - thebloogerblogger

Soulja Boy still makes music? I forgot about him since 2008 - AlphaQ

68 Toothbrush - DNCE Toothbrush - DNCE

I guess I could go on all day about this song, but it's from 2015, technically. - Swellow

The lyrics though... makes me cringe

The lyrics are horrible as hell. - Catacorn

Look! a song about sex by the less talented of the Jonas brothers, and his mates that nobody knows the name of, sounds like a recipe for success? No.

69 Mama Said - Lukas Graham Mama Said - Lukas Graham

Um, this is like a HORRIBLE version of "Hard Knock Life" by Jay Z. At least the kids in that song could actually sing

Mama said shut the hell up and stop copying Annie. - AnonymousChick

Jay Z did Hard Knock Life better than these talentless hacks behind 7 Years. Cringey and annoying. - Spark_Of_Life

Yo mama said for you to quit making music and to go to bed. - AnimeDrawer

70 Look Alive - Rae Sremmurd Look Alive - Rae Sremmurd

The sad fact is that this is probably better than both Over Here and By Chance. Swae Lee actually sounds like he hit puberty, Slim Jxmmi's enough of a nonpresence to hide is awfulness, and the lyrics are both not aggravating enough and not understandable enough to get worked up over. Still, all this falls apart because of Mike WiLL Made-It. Similarly with No Type, the bass swamps out the entire song, the percussion is sparse, and the synth is oddly traily. Even this could have been justified with stronger treble and a faster tempo but as it stands, it's a 1.5/5. - WonkeyDude98

I actually have come to tolerate this. The beat is basically nothing, so it can;t really harm the song, and the vocals are OK. The lyrics are somewhat decent, and so a say a 2.7/5 - ProPanda

71 Superlove - Tinashe Superlove - Tinashe

Tinashe - An artist who's not consistent. Her songs either are masterpieces or they suck hugley. - Spark_Of_Life

72 I Took a Pill In Ibiza - Mike Posner I Took a Pill In Ibiza - Mike Posner

If we're talking about the original, then this is accurate. But since the remix is in the sample, I assume you meant this, in which case no. - WonkeyDude98

I don't get this. The original version I'll agree and say it sucks, but the remix is awesome.

And this is why the Remix is way better.

Holds the record for the dumbest lyric of all time. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

73 2 Phones - Kevin Gates

This is one of the most forgettable songs I've ever heard. It's like some generic guy was given a cheat sheet on how to make a trap song. His voice and flow aren't anything special, and all he does is brag about the same crap as everyone else. No one is gonna remember who Kevin Gates is when this song drops off the charts. - Zach808 this. There's no joke or punchline, it's literally a guy talking about how he has two phones. Oh if only he wasn't playing it completely straight. Gates sounds like Flo Rida on weed, the beat is cold dark trap mush, and he has lyrics about how his phones make him "gorgeous" and make "other women feel unimportant". Since this isn't a joke, it isn't funny, and we're left with some really pathetic writing from a flash-in-the-pan nobody rapper who will fade in three months. To quote TDA, this is like a ghetto Sesame Street. Half-star/5. - WonkeyDude98

"My phone be making women feel they unimportant"
This lyric, alongside his constant bragging of how great his "two phones" are, only makes Kevin come out as an ass. Thankfully this song is that forgettable it's nothing in three months. - Swellow

There is no meaning in this song... just a douche rapping about how he has 2 phones. Makes me wanna break all the phones he has so he can stop singing about it

76 Famous - Kanye West

Hey, remember that feud between Kanye West and Taylor Swift from 2009? Well, apparently it's still going on. - Zach808

Kanye had receipts this whole time. Taylor may be suing him, but her reputation has received a major fallback. She deserves it anyways. How the hell did her album win a Grammy over Kendrick? Famous is not that bad but the music video is just... pornography. Bad pornography. - Mcgillacuddy

You did not make Taylor famous Kanye, she kept you relevant. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

Disgusting rotting trash should never have existed

78 T-Shirt - Thomas Rhett T-Shirt - Thomas Rhett

I'm surprised this abomination found its way onto the list, but I don't care right now. All that matters is that it's a shameful, gutless piece of garbage from a talentless hack who doesn't deserve to be called a "country" singer. - WonkeyDude98

The inspiration of Sweatshirt

I would say I'm surprised this song is horrible but this is Thomas Rhett we're talking about. The only thing I'd be surprised at is if he put out a song that didn't end up on my year end worst list. It'd be a miracle.

It came out before Sweatshirt, and it managed to be worse. - Swellow

79 Dystopia - Megadeth

It's not even 2016 yet. And why is there so much Megadeth on this list?

You do realize Ark-M made this list originally (alongside the Best Songs of 2016 list) by adding the entirety of the new Megadeth album on both lists as an example? He's not attacking the band, god. - Swellow

Who is putting Megadeth in this list?

80 The Greatest - Sia The Greatest - Sia

Hate this song with a passion. Sia's worst musical piece yet, in fact, this should be in the top 10. When you hear her sing, it is like she overdosed on cocaine singing this song. I listened to this song and I regret it because it made me feel uncomfortable for some reason (probably the poorly made repetitive beat and lyrics). Ultimately, this song is a piece of crap.

I used to like this, then it soured on me hard. I mean, this is everything you could expect a collab like this to be in 2016. Generic production, generic trap snares, generic lyrics to a cause that deserved better, almost completely nonpresent performance, and a generic and disappointing guest verse from Kendrick Lamar. 2/5 - WonkeyDude98

I mean I liked his 2015 album and we get this crappy verse in return? Someone tickle me now... - AlphaQ
