Top Ten Worst Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 9

161 Money Longer - Lil Uzi Vert Money 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

Lil Uzi Vert has the worst voice. Much worse than Lil Wayne. AVOID LIL UZI VERT SONGS! - AlphaQ

162 Controlla - Drake Controlla - Drake

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

163 Body Say - Demi Lovato Body Say - Demi Lovato

Another song glorifying sex / This song falls hard. - madoog

Amazing song! she sounds so confident on this record and it fits her style really well! 10/10

164 Activated - Cher Lloyd Activated - Cher Lloyd

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

165 Cool Girl - Tove Lo Cool 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

166 Holy Key - DJ Khaled Holy Key - DJ Khaled

This song would be a 5/5... If it wasn't for the horrible ending. 4/5 is the final score but then again, the ending was the ruin cause. - SelfDestruct

167 The Great Divide - Rebecca Black The Great Divide - Rebecca Black

Just because it's Rebecca Black doesn't mean it automatically sucks... - Swellow

This isn't quite as good as Saturday, but it's still good, and definitely better than Friday and probably My Moment. 3.5/5 - WonkeyDude98

All I really have to say is that Rebecca's voice has improved dramatically since Friday.

Friday may have sucked, but this is actually pretty good. It might grow on me. 7/10. - NiktheWiz

168 My Way - Calvin Harris My Way - Calvin Harris

When you somehow top This Is What You Came For in awfulness. 0/5 - ProPanda

That amazing cover art doesn't deserve to have such a crapsack song attached to it. Spoiler alert: You can't sing, Calvin. At all. - Spark_Of_Life

I might actually like this...?

Okay, the lyrics aren't good at all, and Calvin Harris still needs to get guts in his voice, but he's certainly better than the Chainsmokers in this regard, and the production is so catchy and infectious that I can't bring myself to hate this at all! I like the pretty synth that drives the song into a clipped guitar melody with impeccable groove. Eh. 4/5 - WonkeyDude98

170 Just a Lil' Thick - Trinidad James Just a Lil' Thick - Trinidad James

Great, another moron comes back right when you thought they were gone for good. - Swellow

172 Bad Things - Machine Gun Kelly & Camila Cabello Bad Things - Machine Gun Kelly & Camila Cabello V 2 Comments
173 Chill Bill - Rob $tone Chill Bill - Rob $tone

I honestly had no problem with this song when I first listened to it. But then I realized how lackluster it was. The beat was very thin (only had the Kill Bill whistle sample, thin drums, and some of the thinnest bass ever heard in a song). Also, the first two rappers had some of the worst flows in rapping history. However, I will admit the third rapper had some great flow compare to the first two. Sadly, not even that could repair the damage done to this song. I am sorry, this is getting a 0/5 for me. - SelfDestruct

I'm a sucker for flutes. Kinda why I liked Broccoli too, except this is a little better. 3.5/5 - WonkeyDude98

Now I like this one quite a fair bit, mainly cause the sample... 4/5 - ProPanda

174 Greenlight - Pitbull Greenlight - Pitbull

I remember hating this before. Honestly, Pitbull, Flo Rida, and LunchMoney Lewis are all fresh air in a sea of horrendous, "melancholic" hip-hop infecting most of the mainstream these days. 5/5 - WonkeyDude98

God give me sanctuary from the trash.

No wonder there's a gap between his teeth! - Moorefamval

177 Crazy in Love - Beyonce Crazy in Love - Beyonce

What is a song from 2003 doing on a 2016 list? Unless someone got mixed up on the title of this or did this intentionally, then this song shouldn't even be here either. - Swellow

I like how her only good song before 2016 is on here - ProPanda

178 True Disaster - Tove Lo True Disaster - Tove Lo

As someone who didn't love that last record, I can solidly say this was the est song on there. 5/5 - ProPanda

179 Caroline - Amine Caroline - Amine V 2 Comments
180 Move - Luke Bryan Move - Luke Bryan

How have we let Luke Bryan get away with rewriting Country Girl (Shake It For Me) FOUR TIMES? And you wanna know something? This might be the worst reiteration yet. The guitars don't have a melody, the drums are extremely fake, the vocal production is disastrous, Luke Bryan sounds awful, and everything about this screams of objectifying, hedonistic toolbaggery. There's nothing to this. Luke Bryan, it's time to quit. -1/5 - WonkeyDude98
