Top Ten Worst Things About Pop Music In 2014


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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

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 Becky G 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.

24 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

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

Why didn't Nirvana do that?

26 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

27 All I Got by Hendersin
28 Poser rappers
29 Hip hop getting worse
30 Rock music almost completely disappearing

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

31 Jason Derulo 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 "Wiggle", "Talk Dirty", "Trumpets", "Want To Want Me", "In My Head", and "Whatcha Say", all of which have 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

32 Bieber Fever
33 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.

34 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

35 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

36 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.

37 Bro Country
38 Songs being overplayed
39 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

40 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
