1224 Million - Riff Raff

One of the worst from the titanic abomination that was Peach Panther (an album that's grown to me hating it more than SremmLife 2), it's a song with the basic premise that A. RiFF RAFF has recliners, and B. He only made four million bucks last year. Uhhh...

But I don't care if this was secretly more intelligent than Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly, or if Frank Sinatra performed this, this would still be horrendous entirely thanks to the production. I mean, I haven't heard so much confusion in one beat since Rae Sremmurd's No Flex Zone. It's trying to be upbeat, but the moody four-note synth line is so muddy and wet-sounding that any fun to be had is gone, even ignoring the brittle trap percussion. -1/5 - WonkeyDude98

123Ooouuu - Young M.A.

This song is an example that hip hop is dead.

124LA Devotee - Panic! At the DiscoV1 Comment
125Life Goes On - Fergie

Am I the only one who thinks this song isn't that bad?

126Go 4 It - Corey Feldman
127Song for All Haters - Misha
128Sue (Or In a Season of Crime) - David Bowie
129Dollar Days - David Bowie

I bet none of you knew that Bowie was basically dying while he was making this, yeah sure, it's no Lazarus or Blackstar...but still, the man was dying

Hey at least Bowie does not use autotune

130Saved - Ty Dolla $ign

I despise DJ Mustard with every fiber of my being, but this song does have some saving graces. For one thing, the beat's faster and more upbeat than the typical DJ mustard beat (though it's still the same formula, so partial credit only). E-40 is a decent guest rapper with some energy in his flow. His verse here isn't as good as his verse on I Don't F With You, but it's not bad. As for Ty Dolla Sign, he's... forgettable. I wouldn't call this song good, but it definitely doesn't sink to the level of most DJ Mustard tracks. - Zach808

131True Colors - Zedd

This song is an amazing cover. Not as good as the original, but Kesha sounds a lot better than she had previously. - Swellow

Whoever said Zedd sucks and Jacob Sartorius rules doesn't have a taste in good music. Zedd is actually one of the peeps of today who makes good music. - astroshark

We need less hags in the music industry like Kesha and Zedd and more stars who are cool and hip like Jacob Sartorious and Mark Thomas.

132This is What You Came For - Calvin Harris

Calvin Harris made really jamming music until this came along. For him and Rihanna's ultimate follow-up to the banger We Found Love, this is a disappointment on ever level. When I first saw the artwork, I was expecting something darker with maybe a style that his last album Motion was filled with. Instead, we have the least interesting tropical house I've heard. I'm a fan of tropical house, don't get me wrong, with guys like Kygo leading the scene but Calvin just made a poor attempt to fit into a trend

Jacob Sartorius may be repetitive, but not nearly as much as this song. Excuse me if I missed a few, but Rihanna says "you" 140 TIMES throughout the course of this song! - yaygiants16

I kinda like this...I mean, sure it's getting overplayed, and Rihanna's vocals on the drop are pretty awkward, but overall, her performance is strong, and I really like Calvin's new, calmer, tropical style. It's comfortable. 3/5 - WonkeyDude98

Too repetitive. And the chorus. Don't get me started.

133Try Everything - Shakira

The song that proves Shakira should just stick to her risque, sexy music instead of a more friendly style. - Swellow

I am a huge shakira fan and this is just awful

There's a deeper meaning behind the lyrics you know. 4/5 - ProPanda

I love this song!

134Some Type of Love - Charlie Puth

Puth's album is some type of GARBAGE. - Spark_Of_Life

135Middle - DJ Snake

Do you know what I just realized? More than before, I hate DJ Snake. I really, genuinely do. I already think the contributions of...Bipolar Sunshine (ARE YOU SERIOUS? ) are banal and worthless, but there we go, DJ Snake supplies us with another oily tropical song that breaks into another whiny vocal drop complete with a ton of pitch-shifting. I thought I could actually like this guy with Lean On and You Know You Like It, but as it turns out...no. 0/5 - WonkeyDude98

Ok. The beat starts off as really good. We have this nice piano jingle backed upby drums perfectly. The melody is beautiful, and with Bipolar's cracking and emmotional voice just makes it sound more perfect. The lyrics about tryna save a relationship are nice too. The drop is kinda annoying but I love this song anyway 4.5/5 - ProPanda

136New English - Desiigner

After hearing Panda, I'm not even buying that this hack can make a coherent syllable, let alone speak English. - Spark_Of_Life

New English? He can't even speak English! - yaygiants16

How is ALL of Dystopia above this mess?!?!

This isn't a song.

137Money Longer - Lil Uzi Vert

I meant to talk about this absolute atrocity when it was overshadowed in bile by Sweatshirt last week, because this should have been the song to get all the hate that week. That awful synth line sounds like someone autotuned the death of a flock of geese with FL Studio effects, Lil Uzi Vert has one of the most instantly punchable and grating voices in rap since Young Thug, his flow and rhymes are phoned in and incredibly stilted, and he talks about his "haters getting sadder" and his "girl calling him daddy". THAT'S CREEPY. Yeah, -1/5, complete garbage. - WonkeyDude98

If only Lil Uzi Vert had a better voice, because he has quite a decent flow in this song. Overall 2/5. It sucked! - SelfDestruct

138Controlla - Drake

Is it me or is that Pop Can using so much autotune you can barley hear what he's saying? - TommyBranca

139Activated - Cher Lloyd

Cher has no personality whatsoever here. A funeral is less boring and lifeless than this song. - Spark_Of_Life

140Cool Girl - Tove Lo

Wow. Even coming from a Tove fan, this is quite bad. The lyrics are weird and don't really make sense. The chorus is basically her saying "I'm a cool girl" over and over. And the synths are very watered-down and whispery. Oh, and don't watch the music video, whatever you do. - Spark_Of_Life
