Top Ten Worst Songs of 2016

121 I Don't Like to Think - Riff Raff I Don't Like to Think - Riff Raff

The very worst song on Peach Panther. I mean, this is genuinely terrifying. It sounds like something out of the Shining. Small stuff first: Riff Raff says that he goes into women's bathroom stalls, and he has Problem handle one of the, if not, the worst chorus of the entire year. We know that you both don't like to think, WE CAN TELL.

But again, the production on this...I mean, you have a two-person choir from your nightmares in this, and one of the weediest trap snares of the whole year, but then you have this broken music box rattling through the whole thing and it's just...can I leave? Like, I feel threatened by this...-1/5 - WonkeyDude98

122 Fade - Kanye West Fade - Kanye West

This song... I'm not even sure what to call it. The beat is somewhat catchy, the lyrics have a distinct vibe to them, but the song itself was messed up beyond belief. It legitimately sounds like a 5 year old attempted to make a YTP, then getting bored after 10 minutes and completely reordering everything and mashing things up. The "I Feel It" sample is life support for the song, and it just screwed everything up. If it qualifies as a song, then it's quite bad (I guess), but for some reason, whether it be that everyone else loves it or that I burst out laughing every time I hear this, I can't get myself to hate it, or even take it seriously.

Plus, Teyana Taylor isn't that impressive to me.

I knew this song would be in the list sooner or later. Screw you whoever put it in. This song is hotness - Mcgillacuddy

What? This one rocks! THe sample, the weirdness, and the clever lyrics. 5/5 - ProPanda

This song rocks. I don't even know what to say. 5/5

123 Deja Vu - Post Malone Deja Vu - Post Malone

If you've ever seen me comment on an anti-pop list, you'd think I like Justin Bieber. Well I don't, and song like THIS are the reason why. I mean, I already hated this song before I listened to it. 2016 Justin Bieber and diet 2016 Justin Bieber (Post Malone) is automatically a fail. But even with this horrendous combination, this is an ATROCITY, easily worse than White Iverson, maybe even worse than Go Flex.

Forget the fact that whatever vibes you could collect from this are swamped in reverb-y bass and thin trap percussion, and that both of these guys sound like they just woke up from a bad head cold, but the lyrics...man these guys are really trying to sell themselves as tools aren't they?

Forget the fact that Post Malone explicitly tells a girl who's leaving him to leave her...well...stuff at the door, and by that he means her underwear, and the way he phrases it automatically makes me think of brown stains, he says that he screws so many women that the one he's doing ...more - WonkeyDude98

Why the hell does this guy have a career again?

Well, Wonkey summed this up better than I could so, I'm just gonna leave with a a -1/5 - ProPanda

124 Song for All Haters - Misha
125 Party - Chris Brown Party - Chris Brown

You know what? I'm gonna say it. As someone who has somehow found 19 Chris Brown songs worse than Loyal (my 3rd worst hit song of 2014) and have only listened to one of his albums in full thus far, this rests in his bottom 15. Everything about this is awful. The synths barely peak out of the background, and when they do, they're dull, cheap, and disgusting-sounding behind this bargain-barrel beat. Chris Brown sounds particularly awful and Gucci Mane...exists, but USHER? Why? His presence here should deem this to mediocrity, but he's somehow worse than either of the cretins he's working with.

If I wasn't so fixated on making sure Me Too is as high as possible, this would be #4 on my worst list. -3/5. Somehow, we're still giving Chris Brown a career. - WonkeyDude98

I see chris brown is still terrible - kardinaleb

126 I Can't Give Everything Away - David Bowie I Can't Give Everything Away - David Bowie

The trolls bashing Bowie are beyond awful. - Swellow

I love Bowie, and I'm only 14. He was such a legend and I think it's horrid how much people are slagging off his music. R.I.P Starman.

Liking this type of music and saying your 14 won't make people go "Wow this 14 year old has great music taste" - Mumbizz01

127 Gang - Max P

Appearently, this song is popular in Minecraft PvP, jfc this song is terrible - Moorefamval

128 Just Like Fire - Pink Just Like Fire - Pink

It's not necessarily bad but it does sound like most of her other material and does not push her comfort zone.

Complete garbage. Pink sounds fine (except for the prechorus and NO ONE CAN BE JUST LIKE ME ANYWEH), but that's a given, it's Pink. The instrumentation is bland and forgettable to the point of being unlistenable (imagine if Sober, one of the best songs ever, had no emotion or passion in it), and the metaphor in the lyrics is generic and unfinished. 0/5 - WonkeyDude98

I am the only person who gets the real meaning behind this song

Overplayed as hell, but still really good. - Powerfulgirl10

130 Send My Love (to Your New Lover) - Adele Send My Love (to Your New Lover) - Adele

...and of course, the worst song on 25 is the final single. I mean, it isn't terrible but I wouldn't call it great either, in fact this is probably Adele's weakest effort to date. The idea of an upbeat Adele song is interesting, but in context with the very grey and downbeat 25, it's pretty jarring. Also that hook is incredibly irritating. The verses are alright, and it's still Adele, so let's settle with a 3/5. - WonkeyDude98

It's fun to see Adele have a nice upbeat song, but even there, something here still feels so grey and hollow... - Swellow

This is honestly one of my favorite Adele songs. It's nice to see her do something more uplifting and upbeat for once. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

I love this song. Adele has made a nice, bubbly single. - Catacorn

131 Sorry - Beyonce Sorry - Beyonce

The chorus is where she goes Superman 64! It sounds like she is just restarting herself every time when repeating "I Ain't Sorry" very similar to when Superman repeats "Then There's No Time To Waste" when he restarts. Granted I have heard other music artists go Superman 64 in the chorus but at least they all sounded more interesting than her! Also, nothing about this works well, matter of fact they all serve to backfire and make this sound more god awful than it should! So yeah, no excuses, Beyonce will always get herself a -1/5 or lower. - SelfDestruct

I honestly like this one. Don't judge. - Powerfulgirl10

The only Lemonade song that should be on here is Formation. The rest of the album is really good and this is coming from a Beyoncé hater. - Swellow

132 This Girl - Kungs vs Cookin' on 3 Burners

This isn't music, just absolute nonsensical noise!

133 One Night - Lil Yachty One Night - Lil Yachty

This song is so boring and Lil Yachty sounds so uninterested in what he's whining...er, rapping. If it wasn't for the sexist, unbearable lyrics, nothing about this crap would be memorable. Lil Yachty is just another cliche loser trying and failing miserably at rapping that we'll never hear from again. - Spark_Of_Life

No, this is only the worst thing ever. Nothing is over-the-top or ridiculous about this, it's insufferable declination of a woman playing as a dull, monotonous bore. -1/5 - WonkeyDude98

Sometimes, lazy flow can come out as comedic (say for example, Pop Style by Drake). But here, it doesn't and only comes out as cringe-worthy. This is a 0/5 because he definitely didn't try. - SelfDestruct

Yachty, Have you been smoking broccoli again?

135 She's Got a Way with Words - Blake Shelton She's Got a Way with Words - Blake Shelton

Not gonna lie, as a country hater, I don't really hate this. It's actually pretty good. Blake sounds all laid back and drunk which makes sense with the lyrical content. I like how it's so laid back and calm yet so creepily disgusting. It's the country song meant for me, 3.5/5 - ProPanda

136 Let Me Love You - DJ Snake Let Me Love You - DJ Snake

DJ Snake needs to stop relying on Egyptian style riffs and try something else. Justin Bieber also puts in an uninspired performance too, thus making this a 0/5. I hope it doesn't reach #1 in Australia (it's #2 right now) and starts sliding down soon. - JackMM

Is this gonna be the last time a song is called Let Me Love You? This song could not be called something else? This song is somewhat bland and has this unlikable aura. I do not like Let Me Love You. This song fails. - madoog

I want to like this really bad. Justin Bieber sounds amazing here, and the production really isn't bad, at all really. But you could smell the formula and predict every move these guys make from a mile away, and while it's not as groan-worthily bogstandard as Cold Water, that doesn't make it a disappointment. 2.5/5 - WonkeyDude98

I only kinda liked that song to begin with, and at least that song had a killer solo. - WonkeyDude98

DEAR LORD! Not even 10 seconds of this song will have you hitting your radio with an axe! The trashy voice of Bieber with his usual sex whine is enough to give you a HEADACHE

137 Blow Your Mind - Dua Lipa Blow Your Mind - Dua Lipa

Cher Lloyd and Rebecca Black's stepchild, too bad she isn't competent and has the vocal talent of a strangled Akita. - Swellow

Well, Dua, you may not be able to blow my mind, but you sure can make me sick to my stomach. - Spark_Of_Life

What is this? The awkward "mah" followed by a kiss sound lowers the quality. This song is a mess. Are bad songs outnumbering good songs? - madoog

138 4 Million - Riff Raff 4 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
