Top Ten Worst Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 5

81 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.

Most of her songs are really rude. I mean look at chandelier! It's about drinking! THIS IS NOT FOR KIDS! But the greatest is pretty good.

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

82 Cyberbully Channels are Cancer! - Mishovy Silenosti

Rumor has it, that every time you hear a song by Mishovy, you feel the pain of everyone who had to experience the Holocaust

The only thing that's cancer is the person who's singing it. - Swellow

Stop saying cancer. Ugh this song fails hard. 1/5 - AlphaQ

Why isn't "I Play Pokemon Go Everyday" higher

83 Harambe - Young Thug Harambe - Young Thug

The instrumental is good but this guy need to drink some water before he raps like seriously his throat is dry as hell - Mcgillacuddy

Young Thug said each track on his mixtape "Jeffery" was named after one of his idols. Tell me this Thugger, how is a gorilla that was shot for endangering a kids life an idol of yours?

85 24k Magic - Bruno Mars 24k Magic - Bruno Mars

Stereotypical and boring. Go away, Bruno Mar. - Swellow

I liked Bruno Mars when he was doing songs like "Just The Way You Are" and "When I Was Your Man" but now that I've heard this, I'm almost embarrassed to even say I used to like him.

I can't believe this crap is from the guy who made "When I Was Your Man". What the heck happened? - Spark_Of_Life

Seriously, Uptown Funk was bad enough on it's own. Did we really need another one?! - NiktheWiz

86 Tis a Pity She Was a Whore - David Bowie Tis a Pity She Was a Whore - David Bowie

Uh, no, the album was a great swan album that helps us reflect the greatness of Bowie and his early era. - Swellow

I'm pretty sure the person who put the album here was trolling. Their comments are nothing but vague flames with no grammar whatsoever. Downright disrespectful if you ask me. - Zach808

If you look past the offense to a dead man, the troll comments are amusing

Seven months and these troll comments still haven't vanished or stopped? Honestly, the joke was awful from the start and it's only become a rehash ever since (meanwhile BTDR and JBL made me laugh). Find something more time-consuming than this. - Swellow

No the person who added this just wanted to put it on because the song is terrible

87 I Hate U, I Love U - Gnash I Hate U, I Love U - Gnash

The song is so boring. The incredibly simple and repetitive piano chords and Gnash's dull vocals make it sound more like a lullaby and less like a legitimate R&B song. I tried to analyze the lyrics while listening to it, but I fell asleep before it ended. He failed at making a sad song, because the only feeling I was getting was anger over the song not ending quick enough. 3/10, I'm not feeling it at all. - yaygiants16

This is atrocious. Gnash sounds like a whiny teenager and he says the f bomb way more times than he needs to - Spark_Of_Life

Say Something Part 2. In every way. 4.5/5 - WonkeyDude98

I actually like this song though. 4/5 cause gnash is kinda dull no offense - AlphaQ

Who thought it was good idea to scare away Mackelmore? You are letting these idiots take over the pop charts! HOW COULD YOU!?!

89 Lying In State - Megadeth

Tell me what this ultra-heavy track is doing here! Very great lyrics about the decline of Western civilization, awesome solos, and the drums, so much energy.

90 Bullet To The Brain - Megadeth

Why is this so high on the list? This song is so awesome!

91 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?

92 Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) - Silento Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) - Silento

You know your song is bad when it's a contender in next year's worst list.

Guys! The Whip/Nae Nae is dead already! Stop worrying about it! (this is not a defense for this song. Also, it came out in 2015! ) - SelfDestruct

This song is horrible, but it came out in 2015. - Spark_Of_Life

This song sucks garbage, but it's from 2015, not 2016 - VideoGamefan5

93 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

94 No Money - Galantis No Money - Galantis

Pitch shifting + Incredibly bland electronic beat + Awful singing = Galantis. - Swellow

A song that may seem to be written and sung by a 4 year old girl, a steeple of a drugged up disco in the 70's... only in 2016

Sounds like a little kid sang this while he was high on glue his dad gave him and then autotuned, but they messed up the autotune. Still surprisingly good. But song will definitely get annoying after awhile.

This song is just as bad as KidzBop and I'll admit it catchy but I don't even want to listen to it anymore cause it's trash. Ripoff of Meghan Trainor but actually is bad. Honestly hope this doesn't hit #1. I don't know if this is gonna be as bad as Friday. But horrible work. 1/5 - AlphaQ

95 In the Name of Love - Martin Garrix In the Name of Love - Martin Garrix

The only thing that makes me want to puke more than Bebe's performance is that cancerous drop... - Spark_Of_Life

This is the worst song I have ever heard. It gives me a headache every time I hear it.

This whole list is garbage, there a whole wad of amazing songs on this list, and this is one of them, love it so much

This song isn't that bad, except for that drop.

96 Fatal Illusion - Megadeth

Whoever added this must either be mentally retarded or don't even know what real music is

Why is this even on the list, the worst metal song is far better than the best pop song

97 PG Song for Kids (I Play PG Everyday) - Mishovy Silenosti PG Song for Kids (I Play PG Everyday) - Mishovy Silenosti

His teeth is like about the size of Great Wall of China

This song just hammers in the fact for me that kids these days only like Pokemon for the app, and not the original classics.

What does this kid floss his teeth with? A mattress?

All I could say is that this song is sooo overrated, that people even sing it at my bus and school.

98 Ain't My Fault - Zara Larsson Ain't My Fault - Zara Larsson

Two words: Tremendous letdown. She makes two amazing songs, Never Forget You and Lush Life, and she follows those up with THIS? Please get on the right track, Zara. - Spark_Of_Life

Not sure if this is good or not. I mean, Zara's amazing as usual, and besides the drop, the production is solid. But, the lyrics... This is a song where Zara tries to be that good pretty girl who stople your guy by accident and should be innocent. 2/5 - ProPanda

Yet another piece of crap from a singer who is only famous for being beautiful.

I agree that some of these songs on this list are terrible, but I mean come on, this song is amazing

99 Too Good - Drake Too Good - Drake

I don't hate the singing here, and I actually like the icy tropical beat, but these lyrics...first off, Drake's blaming RIHANNA for playing the victim, but Drake's been playing the victim throughout the whole album, and second, "I'm too good TO you", I SHOULD BE TREATING YOU WORSE RIGHT NOW. Ugh. 3/5 - WonkeyDude98

100 Kiss It Better - Rihanna Kiss It Better - Rihanna

Kiss what better? What is it? This song sounds like an R&B song from a previous decade. It sounds old. Why are people keep making songs that sound old? Get Lucky - Daft Punk feat. Pharrell, Old School Love - Lupe Fiasco feat. Ed Sheeran, Sober - Childish Gambino, Hideaway - Kiesza, All About That Bass - Meghan Trainor, Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars, Can't Feel My Face - The Weeknd, Hotline Bling - Drake, Back To Sleep - Chris Brown, this, No - Meghan Trainor, and now Dangerous Woman - Ariana Grande. Enough! Who is next? Happy by Pharrell is an exception. I like Happy. This song has an annoying whiny electric guitar. This song was overwhelming to listen to. So much nostalgia - madoog

Work was a hit, and this wasn't?! What a crime. - WonkeyDude98

"Needed Me" is better than this song.
