Top Ten Worst Things About Pop Music In 2014

The Top Ten Worst Things About Pop Music In 2014

1 All the songs are about butts and sex

I'm looking at you, Nicki Minaj. - CasinLetsGoBowling

Nicki corrupted my younger cousin. Thanks to that witch she wants to be like her when she is older. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

See this why music is crap now. Every single song out there is nothing but sex, sex, sex! What's worse is that retarded fangirls seem to like it and they don't give a crap if they get offended or not. The music now sucks and I hope something good happens. Metal should really come out and shut down pop down.

Metallica could have probably have been capable of doing something like that a long time ago--but, alas, all they care about is money. -_- - LostDream258

And when young girls listen to the radio they see these women as role models, they are very bad role models who just objectify themselves! - BunnyC

A lot of the pop songs nowadays require little-to-no imagination in their writing and are often quite sexist. - HollyRolo

2 Attention whoring

Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, even Jennifer Lawrence tried so hard to get our attention. I don't respect them!

The best thing to do is avoid awful singers like Justin Bieber (the once piece of crap from the otherwise amazing Canada) or Miley Cyrus ("queen" of twerking). - Comments

To hell with pop

I would never call these people 'whores' but honestly I think these people just don't know what to do with their lives. They just need second chances. - ElectraHeart

3 Mean fan bases

Beliebers, Victorians, and Directioners, looking at you. - BigBrotherYESTotalDramaNO

4 Anaconda

This chick's gonna fall off soon. I'm hoping she does. I'm surprised she's still relevant. cause I guarantee that the reason people are still buying her stuff is because they're so obsessed and attracted to her FAKE butt. Is there any person out there with that mindset of not caring about looks? Who would look at Nicki Minaj and say "I don't care about her looks she still sucks as a rapper." Same with a girl who would look at a hot guy singing but can't sing (I'm looking at you Justin Bieber fangirls).

Who cares about looks. Looks don't really mean anything. The skills do. The looks, the money, the fame, the fortune, the popularity, etc, all don't mean jack squat. What really matters is your talent. And Nicki Minaj doesn't have that. She sucks at rapping (Justin Bieber doesn't have any talent either).

Rolling Stone of all things ( the magazine) PRAISED THIS SONG! Why? It is literally the song to outdo Wrecking Ball. Meanwhile, bands like Rush are pushed off by the mainstream. Why? They probably have more talent than most of the mainstream pop songs, if not all of them! There goes my " rant", it's about time I vented it off... - MusicalPony

Just that one awful song is enough. - BigBrotherYESTotalDramaNO

I honestly think she made this song just to get more haters.

5 Victoria Justice, Meghan Trainor, and Iggy Azalea got more fame

Victoria Justice isn't that bad, but the other two are HORRENDOUS, - Comments

On point. How the hell Meghan Trainor got a Grammy is beyond me. But not all pop music is bad. I really like Melanie Martinez's Cry Baby. It was the first time I heard an album like that. And I'm on the lookout for more.

Victoria Justice is not a very talented singer, Meghan Trainor 's songs are so annoying, and Iggy Azalea's song are mostly crap.

I hate Victoria Justice so much... - DethronedInFlorida

6 Repetition
7 Misguided pop fans
8 Auto-Tune

Most pop stars would not have a singing career at all if not for autotune.

Everyone uses it nowadays, even the most talented singers. It's unfortunate that bad singers can now have music careers because of autotune. Stars like Selena Gomez don't write their own music and also don't have a good voice, and yet she stays famous because her voice is made to sound good.

I was looking for this. Well this thing made a untalented girl to famous. Selena do use this. Once I went her concert and she was singing stars dance. Believe me her voice was fully broken.

I'm looking at you, Justin Bieber - kaitlynrad11

9 Taylor Swift made a permanent switch to pop

Lol I agree with you - Ananya

Did someone just say that I am insane for liking pop? Lol.

Anyway, I honestly don't mind Swift doing this, I only had a problem when they got overplay. - WonkeyDude98

People are insane to like pop "music". I do admit to liking some, but Seether, Three Days Grace, and Trivium are much better. - Turkeyasylum

Yeah I agree. I mean I do like some pop, but the only pop I don't like is constant talk about butts, partying, sex, drugs, you get the idea. I mean, how can anyone listen to that kind of crap? I'm being dead serious.

Yea... The swifties at my school were really mad at that. - Minecraftcrazy530

10 Only about 6 songs on the radio's rotations

Yes! My social studies teacher plays the local radio station whenever we work and they had just played that crappy all about that bass song and guess what? Four minutes later, they played it again. You can literally hear songs that will be played at least twelve times a day! - HappyFlower

One of them is that HORRIBLE Don't Blame It On Me song! They just simply refuse to stop playing it!

When your alternative radio station starts playing pop music you just want to hit your head against a wall repeatedly, especially when its played over and over again.

It's even worse in 2015. My family and I were going to a concert, and we heard Can't Feel My Face, Stitches, Trap Queen, and about three more. When we were going back, we LITERALLY HEARD THE EXACT SAME SONGS AGAIN. - WonkeyDude98

The Contenders

11 All About That Base

It got old fast

The second worst song made in 2014 - BigBrotherYESTotalDramaNO

The most annoyingly catchy song of the year - gemcloben

That girl can't sing. She's gonna fall off after her second album! - Comments

12 Generic
13 Bang Bang

Made by The Three Idiots in music.

3 bad singers in 1 song - gemcloben

I hope you do realize that they are not even singers. They are three people trying to make garbage and corrupt the music industry.

I'm just saying. If I wanted to listen to a song called Bang Bang, I'd listen to the one by Rammstein. Not this one.

Nicki ruined the song

14 Lack of creativity
15 Miley Cyrus made music

Miley isn't music, she's a piece of trash you would find on a sidewalk! - kaitlynrad11

To be fair, Miley Cyrus's live rendition of Summertime Sadness was amazing.

I don't call it music. It's called garbage.

Just released a cover of The Beatle's Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds with The Flaming Lips and Moby. That's how bad it's gotten.

16 Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. more.

Okay. Before I get any hate, let me go on record saying that this is the 'only' time where having Justin Beiber on a worst list about music doesn't make sense.

Don't get me wrong, I hate him as much as the next guy, and I love trolling everyone's hard work by adding Justin Beiber to their page, (*holds up Parallel Falchion* "Come at me! ") but if I were to be honest, Justin Bieber didn't do anything that bad this year, especially compared to his 4-year run from 2010-2013.

There weren't any memorably bad songs of his released this year. Maybe Confident, but that wasn't even that much to get pissed over when compared to his other masterpieces like "Boyfriend" or "Baby."

Hell, he didn't even do anything that could've gotten him arrested either. Most of the 'edgy' stuff that he did happened in 2013. Maybe he did stuff like that this year as well, but I don't strictly remember him peeing in a mop bucket + flipping off America's 42nd President in 2014. No, that was ...more

I love Justin he's not bad

I can't believe he thinks he is so cool hwn he just is a little brat - oscar195

Can we put a actual reason instead of Justin Bieber, every timee go on list about bad things jutin is in the top ten

17 Booty songs

I hate the word "Booty". It's such a stupid slang word.

Dumbest word I've ever heard in my entire life.

These songs don't even glorify big, juicy booties. They glorify fake, silicone booties!

Talking about you,Nicki Minaj...

18 Happy by Pharrell Williams

Undeniably the most overplayed song of 2014. - RiverClanRocks

This song does not make me feel happy

Overrated, not that great. - IronSabbathPriest

It was awesome at first, but now I'm bored of it. - PizzaGuy

19 Lack of Talent

Is anyone watched the x factor, you'd have seen sterio kicks. - gemcloben

20 Pop critics

It absolutely blows my mind how Anaconda got so many positive reviews over negative ones. What is so great about this song?! Nothing! There's absolutely nothing great or outstanding about this song! It's just Nicki sounding like a witch while the Baby Got Back beat is playing in the background!

One critic even said this song was a "cultural movement".

Wake the hell up America! Wake the hell up! Get back to morals and values! We are sinking into the abyss! Wake the hell up!

Tell me about it. Todd In the Shadows got even worse this year. But that's just my opinion.

Todd in the Shadows literally put Anaconda in the honorable mentions for the best of 2014 list. - WonkeyDude98

21 Teens nowadays are thinking that rock is too loud

Stupid close-minded teens who never explore other genres.

I used to think that, when I was, like, 6
Now I listen to LOTS of rock
Idiots - kaitlynrad11

22 Nicki Minaj's Anaconda being nominated for a Grammy

This is another reason why I don't like the pop industry, songs that are horrible are nominated for the best stuff! But, according to society, that's how it works - kaitlynrad11

23 Hello Kitty

Don't get me wrong, I love Avril Lavigne's music, but I really hate this song. I don't think it's racist, but the song itself is bad.

24 Hangover - Psy

Oh yes, and Ellie Goulding didn't get her #1 hit in the U.S yet.For all the idiots who are going to say Love Me Like You Do and Burn hit #1, they hit #1 in the U.K. (mainly because she lives there). Lights is her top charter in the U.S., whitch hit #2

I thought when I first heard about it "Oh great, antoher song from psy. " But then I noticed the guest apperence was from snoop dogg and I knew it problay couldn't be THAT bad considering I like California Gurls and if Katy used him, I guessed it'd be okay. Then I heard the song and saw the video and I was like what did I just see? I probably won't be hearing K-Pop anytime soon.

25 Becky G Rebbeca Marie Gomez, better known by her stage name Becky G, is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, and actress.

Her voice is the most annoying voice I've ever heard, I can't even stand one second of her voice. She makes me wanna listen to kesha and Rebecca black.

Great cures for "Shower":
-The Cure - Disintegration
-Peter Gabriel - So
-XTC - Drums and Wires
-Blondie - Parallel Lines
-The Replacements - Let It Be
If you've heard nothing from at least one of these, you aren't human.

26 Lip-syncing during "live" concerts

Its gotten much worse since complicated dance moves became part of many acts.

This has been around for a while - gemcloben

People who do this are mean - TheMeaningOfLifeIs42

Fake pop singers. Ty matching up against metal vocalist. Trust me, pop won't stand a chance.

27 U2 forcing their album to literally everyone

I love U2 and all but forcing someone to buy an album isn't a good way to promote an album. Other than that,U2 is an awesome band. - RiverClanRocks

Its not a bad album. for most music fans these days, it will be the best album on their phone - gemcloben

Why didn't Nirvana do that?

I literally got this iPad with a U2 album on it. I was thinking, 'Wha..." - WonkeyDude98

28 Lips Are Movin
29 Shawn Mendes' music

Isn't that good that they stop Rae from being on the radio

He is EVERYWHERE. Last year, there were girls BEGGING the gym teacher to play his songs during class. I swear, I was going to explode - kaitlynrad11

They play his Life of the Party and Something Big garbage every 15 MINUTES. He stopped Rae Sremmurd from gaining fame across Canada and which rapper is he gonna stop now? I hope to make a diss track that will literally end his career. - SelfDestruct

At least he halted the fame of Rae Sremmurd, let's hope 2 Chainz is next. - WonkeyDude98

30 All I Got by Hendersin
31 Music still not progressing

Album after album after album after album after album after album after album... No musical evolution whatsoever in pop music! - IronSabbathPriest

32 Poser rappers
33 Hip hop getting worse
34 Rock music almost completely disappearing

No, it won't. Rock albums still get into the Billboard 200.

35 The only good music is from video games now (and classical music)

No, a lot of rock and alternative bands still make great music nowadays.

You just can't beat classical! At least in today's music. - RiverClanRocks

36 Jason Derulo Jason Joel Desrouleaux, better known by his stage name Jason Derulo (an alternate spelling of his surname), is an American singer, songwriter, and dancer. He is best known for his singles such as "Whatcha Say", "Ridin' Solo", "In My Head", "What If", "Wiggle", "Talk Dirty", "Trumpets" and "Want To Want more.

Wiggle is the worst song he has ever released. Thank god Want to Want Me is actually decent.

This talentless hack made a breakthrough this year, making not one but THREE awful hits this year, from the disturbing Trumpets to the racist Talk Dirty to the all-around asinine Wiggle. - WonkeyDude98

37 Bieber Fever

Sadly, my cousin had it. >:-0 - brendandog2003

38 The Flaming Lips collaborating with Miley Cyrus on their fourteenth album

What has gotten into Wayne? Doesn't he have any respect for himself in his image?

The guys went from "She Don't Use Jelly" to clear sellouts in a flash.

39 Taylor Swift's 1989 was the biggest-selling album of the year

Someone like Mario kill taylor swift

THIS is why she should've stayed country.

She will get best-selling album of the year even thought she making country music like Fearless and Red that almost become best-selling album of 2012 but was block by 21 by Adele. - BeaM456

@Anonymous: Mario hasn't made a name for himself since 2009 and THAT was by making one of humanity's worst songs. As for a year where music was little worth caring about, 1989 and 1000 FoF where probably the closest things we had to real albums (The Pinkprint was considered Nicki Minaj's best album to date, how preposterous does that sound). - WonkeyDude98

More like the worst album ever.

40 Bro Country
41 Songs being overplayed

I HATE this! If I didn't have to hear Despacito over and over again, that'd be great! I swear to god, why do radio stations play the same 20 songs over and over again? God!
