Top Ten Worst Songs of 2015RickyReeves
The Top Ten
Crank That (Soulja Boy) is one of the worst songs of all time. I figured people would know better than to make another one. We got one. It's even worse.
First off, the elementary beat. I mean, Crank That's beat was awful and unfitting, but at least it was pumping with percussion. The beat here is so simple it's almost painful.
Second is maybe the biggest problem: Silento. He is monotonous throughout the song, appears to lack motivation to dance, lacks aggression, and can't even have the decency to rhyme things together instead of just repeating the same word over and over (Crank That was guilty of none of these things). He also continues the "telling you what you already know" trend which is false and annoying. He also can't even do the dances :-/.
Third: this is possibly the least original song of all time (congrats, Ice Ice Baby, you've been dethroned). Completely rips off Crank That, first of all, and copies dances that were forgotten, but at least they were ...more - WonkeyDude98
This "song". Why? Just... WHY? This isn't even a song, it's just hot garbage. Silento can't rap whatsoever, he just repeats and steals every terrible rap dance under the sun. WHY, in 2015, did we need to be reminded of the Stanky Leg and the Crank that, exactly, and why did somebody think it was a good idea to write this trash (I use the term "write" loosely, seriously, it sounds like an eight year old wrote this)? Silento probably is the most talentless fame-hungry jerk I've ever heard. SCREW THIS REPETIVITE TRASH!
How can you call this not a song? That makes no sense. It is a song. You are just saying that because you do not like the song. - madoog
This is probably the most unoriginal song of the year. All he does is repeats the names of viral dances and calls them his own. When he's not listing other peoples dances he says "watch me, watch me, watch me, watch me" The rest of the song. What an uncreative pile of garbage! Oh! And to top it off, Silento sounds like he's 12.
The whole grade just danced to this all the time. Glad it’s been out for 2 years.
Lol! Iggy Azalea is really an alien and must be destroyed for the sake of mankind
Because Iggy Azalea logic, Rita Ora had too much personality (none at all), so Iggy went for Britney Spears, who also had an infamously lackluster feature in Scream and Shout, but that song's fault was mainly just being boring. This is arguably Azalea's worst song not counting that abomination with Jennifer Lopez. Where Fancy and Black Widow merely annoyed me, this song was not only even more annoying, it outright infuriated me, particularly the chorus. - WonkeyDude98
Why doesn't Britney just give up already? Nobody likes her anymore.
Describing a dream guy? That's what you do when you're a 12 year old girl, IN YOUR DIARY - simpsondude
Oh dear where do I even begin
It's absolute crap, easily the worst song I've heard in quite some time. The music itself is not that great. It's not very catchy, and the instrumentation is pretty lame.
However, the lyrics are abysmal. You can't even defend a line like "We'll never see your family more than mine." Is that supposed to be romantic? The best thing I can say about that is that I'm not married to Meghan Trainor in real life, so I don't have to live with her psychopathic behaviours.
There's also some really terrible implications, and that "kisses" line that is honestly so stupid I can't comprehend why anyone thought it was a good idea, and the fact that the song is built around an idea that doesn't sound mature to anyone over the age of 14.
No. No. No.
I mean, I didn't like All About That Bass in any way, but I could at least appreciate the intent of it. After that, Trainor progressively became harder to listen to, more annoying, and less of a model. In All About That Bass, I at least saw that she was encouraging people who are discriminated against because of their size, but unfortunately that was entirely absent from her next two hits, especially Dear Future Husband. DFH gets everything Boom Clap and Shower did right...wrong. It's girly but can't DO anything with that, has a bad message, and is completely vomit-inducing. I mean, All About That Bass and Lips Are Moving were pretty reprehensible, but at least they were catchy! This is absymal with little if anything to redeem itself.
ALSO: the key change in the second hook is by far the weakest key change I have ever heard. - WonkeyDude98
The lyrics of this song are the epitome of cringe. There's a lot of pretentiousness, like "Even if I was wrong, even though I'm never wrong, why disagree? " or "You gotta know how to treat me like a lady, even when I'm acting crazy". Phew, I could say so much about the lyrics. This song also has one of the lamest key changes in pop history. - LoveMusicLoveLifeV 84 Comments
This takes everything wrong with Rack City and amps it up more than 30 million times.
Generally, beatwork is used to aid a song's tone and mood. For example, Rack City. Boring beat with bored vocals. This? This has a twinkly, heavy piano melody running through the entire song, and Tyga still sounds bored to death. Dude, either make your tone heavier or stick to boring, shallow beats.
The lyrics are absolutely DISGUSTING. It's about his relationship with the underage Kylie Jenner. This is the only time Tyga has ever stayed on subject for a song (barely). How convenient, because this is the worst possible subject he could've stayed on topic for. Top that with the fact that he made no emotional connotations for Jenner in the song and the following line,
"She says she young/I should've waited/She a big girl dog when she stimulated"
Makes me wonder...was he in a relationship with her DESPITE her being underage...or BECAUSE of it?
The name of the piano ...more - WonkeyDude98
So, here are the things this song reveals about Tyga.
1. He's a creepy loser, obviously: He decided to get it on with Kylie Jenner before she became 18.
2. He's a creep on purpose: He has so many women he could choose from, and chose a minor. This proves how state laws can't justify how Tyga is using pedophile logic.
3. He's putting a lot of effort into his creepiness: Kylie Jenner was about 17 and a half when Tyga did what he did, so basically just young enough so you won't have police knocking at your door.
4. He loves being a creep: "They say she young, I shoulda waited/She a big girl dawg when she stimulated"
5. He wants to rub his creepiness in your face: The piano instrumentation (which by the way clashes horribly with the production) is taken from a song called Children.
Normally I request songs this bad don't chart, but of all terrible songs to chart, why not this? This is a confession tape by Tyga, about Kylie Jenner, WHY IS NO ONE GIVING HIM ...more - WonkeyDude98
This is one of the few songs where I'd seriously have to question your judgement if you said you liked it. This is basically the pedophile anthem right here. Justifying sexual relations with a minor with lines like "She a big girl dawg when she stimulated" is just creepy and wrong. He loves the fact that she's underage. And as for the instrumentals... They're sampled from a song named "Children". The fact that Tyga can't rap worth a damn doesn't even matter here, because the best artist in the world couldn't save this song. There's just no defending this whatsoever.
This should be #2 right below WATCH ME. I mean, Dear Future Husband definitely wasn't God's gift to music, but how is that worse than a pedophile anthem? - allamassalV 29 Comments
Madonna needs to retire. Seriously.
Yeah, we know you're Madonna, so go away!
This is not the Madonna I love. What happened to her? To her songs? - CartoonsGirl
Really Madonna? A lame pop song? I'm disappointed in you. - lovefrombadlandsV 71 Comments
UTTER GARBAGE. The lyrics break the laws of physics. Literally, it isn't how life works. It doesn't help that the beat is a forgettable mosh, Manika is an R-rated Taylor Swift without the singing voice, the lyrics are arguably worse than Pretty Girls, and Tyga does an awful job trying to persuade Manika. - WonkeyDude98
This isn't how sexuality works. You don't just choose to go lesbian after getting tired of guys. You're born like that. The basic premise of the song is a complete failure. Don't even get me started on everything else.
Why was this song even made? Was Manika challenged to make everyone cringe? - SirSkeletorThe3rd

(sigh) Another stupid song based on a stupid dance. What makes this one painfully bad though is that it has a terrible flow to it. Although this "song" has a dance to it... IT'S HARD TO DANCE TO THIS SONG! Although the Whip and Nae Nae song is atrocious, at least you can actually DANCE to that song. It has a great flow and steady beat to it even though the lyrics suck, When I saw this song in the bottom of the top 150 songs on iTunes all I could say was "Please don't let this become the next big thing." Well... all I can say is that I should of kept my mouth shut. At least Gangnam Style had some potential to it. On the other hand... this song is garbage.
Whatever you do... please don't dance to this song...
"You better watch your self because I'm feeling myself" So am I. This song sucks. I saw some people in my Social Studies class doing the dance to it when the teacher wasn't in the room. I am gradually losing faith in humanity.
This is just as bad as Watch Me, because they are both viral songs that are most likely to be forgotten in less than two years. Also, what even is a Quan?
My ears bursted after I listened to this piece of crap. - HellohiV 49 Comments
Wow, this song sucks. I liked it back when Rihanna was doing songs like "We Found Love", "Princess of China", "Umbrella", etc. Because they were catchy, but this is just terrible.
I agree so much! Rihanna used to be great, but now she's just fallen into the mass of swearing and inappropriate celebrities. - TheAlbinoWolf
I thought Rihanna couldn't possibly make a worse song than "Birthday Cake." I was wrong.
If it wasn't for Work being so good, then I officially would have classified Rihanna as dead. What even is this. The percussion is loud and plodding, the synth is oily, and then we have what sounds like a broken wrench grinding a conveyor belt. Rihanna doing a full-on trap song. Because 2015. Rihanna doesn't have the power to bark with force over this gaudy and creepy beat. The lyrics are honestly adorable. They try and portray Rihanna as this hard-edged gangsta, but given Rihanna's pathetic performance, I don't buy it. At all. This is a -1/5 for sure. - WonkeyDude98
I've seen singers change in the wrong way before, but I have NEVER seen an attempt this desperate. Rihanna's obnoxiously autotuned voice still sounds bad and sounds like a cross between a dying donkey and Siri. The background just consists of creepy trap music that doesn't go with Rihanna's voice at all. The lyrics are just a bunch of stupid bragging about money (and unnecessary swearing) like she's trying to rap or something. And what is up with that weird intro?V 57 Comments
Marijuana already has a negative reputation thanks to the obnoxious stoner community plaguing the Internet right now, but this song might be the worst marijuana-related thing ever. It's horrifyingly terrible. Besides, we don't need another pro-marijuana song manipulating the drooling idiots of this generation into becoming interested in drugs, this generation is dumb and addicted enough already (sobriety is so underrated nowadays). Not to mention, the fetishistic music video is a train wreck of baffling repulsiveness. This song is a monumental fiasco, a stillborn 0/10 abomination worthy of the music grave.
This might be worse than "Watch Me." I'm not kidding. At first, I thought "Watch Me" was the worst. And I was happy when it was number 1 on Buckley's Top 10 Worst Songs of 2015. Then, THIS was in the honorable mentions. He said it would've been on the list if it played on the radio and if you actually had to pay money to get this atrocity. I was curious about the song, so I watched the music video. 10 seconds later I switched to a lyric video.(ugh..) People who say metal music is just noise have obviously never heard this song, let's just say that. Now if you excuse me, I'm gonna pour a gallon of brain bleach in my ear.
What happened to Miley? Ever since Wrecking Ball she has gotten more and more crazy, and she says she does it to rebel against the rules she learned as a kid. Well, nothing wrong with being a rebel, but her outfits and apparel? *shudder* The video is even more scary, the lyrics are plain, and there's not really anything you can enjoy about the song.
Number 9? I love this song! - AnnieCallieV 42 Comments
Marvin Gaye's ghost is probably banging his head listening to this song. It's not a good tribute song, features cheesy lyrics, and it isn't catchy. Also the two wannabe singers. - Swellow
Even as someone who despises both Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor, I was not prepared for this. This song has forever stained Marvin Gaye's legacy. Now I can't even enjoy "Let's Get It On" anymore because it reminds me of this abomination.
Only thing okay in the song is Charlie Puth's voice... Meghan Trainor is trash like always... Lyrics, music, composition are cheap and the music video is really terrible!
This is... um - AnnieCallieV 39 Comments
This one is going on my worst list this year, Yet another completely awful product from the X Factor Blandness Factory. Fifth Harmony are nothing more than incredibly lame Destinys Child Wannabes with little originality, creativity, talent, or positive attributes to speak of. The lyrics are lazy and way off message, and as another blogger said this an extremely stupid "Talk Dirty" ripoff, and we sure as hell did not need Jason Derulo. Yes I am probably going to find worse songs than this but there is always a part to start when cleaning up the slime that is bad pop music every year. I was stupid to leave "Boss" off the list last year, I am not making the same mistake this time. - miked199220
Worth It is popular to girls in my school, and must be top 5 to girls in the whole school - FerrariDude64
How are so many people trying to defend this really awful song? It's beyond me.
The song has a catchy beat, but it's sampled from another song; Talk Dirty, which was already bad enough, and we did not need Jason Deluro in the scene either. The lyrics are way off message, lazy, and pretty much boring to listen to. Kid Ink's minor appearance doesn't help it, either.
And like others have said, this is basically X Factor trash from a band who cannot try to be their idols; Destiny's Child. I may not have listened to Destiny's Child because of how Beyoncé turned trash, but at least they tried singing. - Swellow
I don't find this song terrible, but it's just so lazy, unoriginal, and forgettable. It samples the beat, has a very boring and overdone message that is neither original nor interesting. I can't tell if it's trying to be a sex song or somewhat empowering, but it fails either way. It's just so scripted, so bland, and relied way too much on 11 year-old girls and crappy movie advertising to get its popularity. This song will just be forgotten with time, along with all the countless cliches it has.
Screw this song! The beat is boring, the sax riff is annoying and sounds rusty, the melody is too damn repetitive, the lyrics are just terrible and nobody needed Kid Ink to rap in this song. With this song, Fifth Harmony became joined the club of female artists who confuse female empowerment with being a hoe. Absolute disgrace! No wonder Camila left the group, she's nailing it solo. - LoveMusicLoveLifeV 65 Comments
To rate the album SremmLife, I'd give it a -1 out of 10.
This is easily the worst song on it. The album that is produced by Mike WiLL Made-It with the two annoying vocalists ever that can't write for anything...
Have a worst song bar none. This is just terrible. The glasshouse melody sounds warped, the bass is overpowering when Swae Lee slur-screams "YOU SHOULDA HAD A CHECK B****", Swae Lee has a voice that makes Jason DeRülo seem like Freddie Mercury, the lyrics are hypocritical, the duo have absolutely no flow (and that's when they even bother to rhyme), and that synth line is like 10000 Hz in frequency. I feel bad for anyone that went deaf because of it.
This is one of the worst songs I've ever heard in my life. It's a -5/5. - WonkeyDude98
Surprised this is one of the high items on the list yet it has not even a single comment, excluding the comments on the remixes.
Once again, the awful makers of No Flex Zone and Throw Sum Mo come back to give you their next hit; My X! Yes, just more sexual themes and bad lyrics put into one song. However, they remove Nicki Minaj, making it just as bad! - Swellow
I'd rate this song X for bad singing
Get this great song off this list! My go to song to pump me up after a breakup! But I never had a girlfriend so...umm...yeah :c. Still like this song and Rae Sremmurd.V 16 Comments
The more I listen to the song, the less I like it. I said Mendes was a good singer? Take that back, his voice is weak and shrill but not stylish enough to cover up. The guitars are too plucky, it's pretty inauthentic. The drums are too loud and yet underpowered.
Honestly, ignoring this, the lyrics are too vague to convey anything, and on lines like "bring me back to life" and "going under", Mendes doesn't bring anywhere near as much punch and energy as he should, and it sounds really careless. When you combine the vague lyrics with Shawn's shrill voice, nothing is to be felt here. Ironic that just as Bieber improved significantly, a much worse wannabe came along.
I change my score.5 lower compared to my last review. I give this a 1.5/5, and that drops the overall score of 2015 down to 196/500. - WonkeyDude98
I know people in real life who obsess over this song, but why?
The song, lyrically based, is pretty weak. He talks about the death of his lover and the sadness surrounding it, but it's ruined with the lyrics that are extremely whiny and make Shawn seem like a baby crying because he didn't get a toy in a shop. His vocals don't help, either. Extremely weak, bland, and the occurring high note problems come back again. Did this kid take vocal school? Probably not.
And the instrumentation is poorly done, with the drums lacking an actual beat and the guitar part sounding extremely vague. - Swellow
Good comment, but it's about a lost lover, not a late lover. If it was about the latter I'd probably like it a whole lot more. - WonkeyDude98
No duh this is the worst song. HORRIBLE! Shawn Mendes CANNOT sing, and his voice really freaks me out especially when he hits a high note. And the lyrics and the video were disturbing and disgusting and I hate Shawn Mendes. He does realize that little kids are listening to this? That's a concern, because the imagery in my head when I hear this is so gory and gross and I literally want to cringe. And I'm fifteen. Why was he nominated for best male artist at the RDMAs when he can't sing? Every video is terrifying and violent, and every song sounds like he hates someone. He didn't get in because of TALENT. he got in because of his good looks. Can't he keep his shirt on for once in a selfie? WE GET IT YOU HAVE HUGE ABS! I'm tired of all his half-naked selfies. This song is even written in my least favorite key: C#. And I wish that the words were used in a less gory way, and that the video wasn't so gory. It's creepy. And his facial expressions are creepy and pointless. He's destroying ...more
This song is so annoying I'm glad its gone - AnnieCallieV 46 Comments
The Rihanna incident was a few years ago, and Chris Brown is still a jerk for doing it. However, it's not the incident that makes me hate him, it's his songs that do. This being the biggest contributor.
The beat just sounds plain and boring, but that's a minor flaw. The biggest is Chris's rapping. If you were to hear the lyrics, it's another typical him; there's the lyric "run over pedestrians", which is just plain stupid and cruel, but there's no denying that the lyric "But I make that bish walk with some cheesecake" is probably the worst thing I have heard out of any rap song.
Overall, you'll have more fun listening to Barbie Girl in 25 languages rather than Ayo. 2/10. The beat was ok but vapid, but everything else sucks. - Swellow
"Freeway for cheesecake"? Where do you work at, the Cheesecake Factory? - RiverClanRocks
Chris Brown should be arrested and put in prison for life, why you ask? For creating this crap and for beating Rihanna - RickyReeves
That song is so annoying and crappy! It sounds way too much the same as Loyal (wich is the worst song ever) and the lyrics are talentless just like the two so-called rappers. I can't belive it's played on the radio while it has such innapropriate lyrics. They make Meghan Trainor look like a masterpiece. WHY IS THAT NOT AT NUMBER 1? - BlueDiamondFromNowhere
Biggest guilty pleasure of the year. 4/5 - ProPandaV 17 Comments
Silento, AKA the laziest currently in the business, was also featured here, with an even more chipmunk-imitating vocal performance.
This song gave me cavities, and the dental bill couldn't cover it all.
Is the change in the voice necessary? I don't think so, because it ruined the whole song.
Fun fact:If you wanna lose some brain cells listen to this song - AnnieCallieV 14 Comments
What really bothers me about this is not the song itself. I've not actually heard the song enough times to actually remember how it goes. In fact, I don't think I've ever once listened to it the whole way through. But the one thing that really bugs me about this garbage is Drake's obnoxious dancing in the video. Every time this song is mentioned, the first thing that pops into my head is that damp dance. And I can't get it out of my head. Ugh, it's so annoying. This mess should never have been made. Thank goodness, I don't listen to today's pop music or follow any of today's stupid trends, like doing stupid, pointless and dangerous challenges and posting about it on social media.
This should definitely be higher! The lyrics make no sense to me, and the way its sung and the beat is just plain BORING. What annoys me the most is that EVERYONE is singing this crap, all my friends like this. My friend recommended this to me, she was praising this song like it was uptown funk part 2. And when I heard it, I was like what?!?!? I hate it, and I have no damn idea how the heck it got so famous and why everyone likes it!
This is literally the worst song that I hear on the radio, and I hear a lot of crap. For the most part, anything released in 2015 is absolutely terrible, but some have a good beat. Or at least a beat. This "song" definitely does not. The radio gets changed as soon as I hear the first millisecond of this steaming pile of feces.
I don't like it, but the album cover invented 1-800-Badlands - lovefrombadlandsV 39 Comments
Why would someone make songs about flies? - AlphaQ
It's not about flies, it's about how we're stuck in the Matrix. Or so Hopsin claims. - Satire
"Did the man who invented college, go to college? "
This is a load of pretentious crap, coming from a person who talks down to his listeners, and who wants to be taken seriously. There's the autotuned chorus, the "lyrical miracle" for the sake of it, the pseudo-inspirational beat, it goes on and on.
But nothing can top the line quoted. That's just being retarded. - Satire
Kendrick releases an entire album this year that could be considered a classic, and THIS is what gets him to #1? Nothing in this world makes sense...
I hate Taylor these days. I was a HUGE fan of her country music, and she actually wrote fine lyrics. Now it's all " MY EX GOT ANNOYED BY MY CRAPPY MUSIC SO I'M WRITING A SONG AND I'LL PRETEND TO BE THE VICTIM". Also, why write a meaningless song about how much you hate someone who's better than you? This song sucks. She basically bribed a ton of celebrities to be in the video. This song's crap.
Like Fight Song, my opinion of this has degraded so much.
It's mainly because of the production, which (trying to keep it clean) is horse poop. Snares? Thick bass? Gang vocals? Random "HEY"s? That's terrible.
The more I think about it Kendrick's verses seem more like Far East Movement or Flo Rida. Nonexistent.
Also, why is Taylor Swift belting? And where did her way with word from Blank Space go?
Yeah, my first experience was a 3/5, but now it's a 0/5, and her worst song to date. Kendrick releases possibly the best rap album of the decade and THIS gets him popular. - WonkeyDude98
I hate her music with a fiery passion every time I listen to it feels like my brain cells are deteriorating from listening to it her music is worse than Justin Bieber and Let It Go to be honest so if I hear Taylor Swift CD sing one more time I'm going to jump into an abyssV 65 Comments
It sounds like he was trying to make a song about not cheating, in the same vein as Andy Grammer's "Honey I'm Good", but this one just falls flat on it's face due to the horribly contrived lyrics. He tries to frame the song as if some girl is deliberately trying to get him to cheat (even going so far as to say that the girl's asking him "Do I make you feel like cheating? "), and he's telling us that he's so great by refusing. Gotta love the "No, not really" answer he gives, like he was thinking "Hm... Maybe I can, but I guess not." What a flip-flopper. Compare this to the framing of "Honey I'm Good", where the guy is just trying to avoid getting drunk and doing something stupid (which actually happens in real life), and he gives the girl a flat "No" rather than some insincere "I guess not". The musical failings of this song (vocals that sound like an alien, as well as the terribly weak instrumentals) don't help either. Yeah, that's another part that "Honey I'm Good" does better.
Agreed. Honestly, I hope Grammer prospers in the game while OMI stops recording music. - WonkeyDude98
Another song going on my worst list of the year. The song itself is not even remotely about a cheerleader but rather a girl he wants to do, typical for today's horrible pop and hip hop music. The lyrics make no sense and are way off message. Second the music, this fully auto tuned nuanced butchering of Reggae music combined with the sensory overload that is deep house is absolutely terrible. And finally his voice is just steamy garbage it sounds like a seal being strangled to death and is absolutely detrimental to an average persons ears. Bob Marley is probably taking a dump in his grave listening to awful Reggae impersonations like this one. - miked199220
The idea about this song is that it wants to convince you that he found a special girl, yet in the end it's all about him. All the girls want HIM and HE'S special because the girl grants him all his wishes and HE'S the magician with his magic wand. Really OMI? Good thing that girl is there for you, because I don't think you'll be there for her when she needs you... And that says more.
It sucks a lot... I was listening to it in the pool and I decided to drown myselfV 89 Comments
And this song is on here...why? Sure, it might be slightly overplayed, but who cares? The song is amazing! Adele is one of the best singers there is, and this song is a triumph in so many ways. Shouldn't be anywhere even NEAR this list! It's a clean song that is successful without resorting to talking about sex and money and anything inappropriate.
How is she terrible? Because she's slow paced, or is it because of her flow? There's no points you gave there. - Swellow
Sorry, people. Defend it all you want, but aside from the vocals, this is basically the Jar of Hearts of 2015. The lyrics are very simplistic and uninteresting and the instrumentals are really boring. Like Fight Song, I can name several breakup songs to replace this one. 4/10. - NiktheWiz
Hello is just another whiny breakup song that gets a lot of attention for no reason. Adele has annoying voice sorry people but it's true. Adele sounds like she is yodeling. But there is only 1 good thing about this song. It's extremely catchy. - spodermanfan1000

Talk about getting boring in record time. Minimalist beat, terrible lyrics and cluttered production mixes together to make this mediocre David Guetta track.
This song is funny 😂😂😂😂 the beat is catchy but those lyrics make me laugh-cry - AnnieCallieV 25 Comments
This song right here is the reason why most hip hop today is terrible. "Rappers" who write lyrics without thinking about them at all. For example, this song is basically them comparing themselves to Donald Trump, without thinking about how he's been one of the most idiotic, loathsome businessmen in America for years, even before the election. The fact that the beat is this slow, boring trap mush, and that Rae Sremmurd sound like they're in middle school doesn't help, but the song was already pretty much ruined from the premise alone. - Zach808
Why the hell would you want to compare yourself to Donald Trump? He's an evil man. Now we're really scraping the bottom of this album.
This album came out before Trump started his evil crap. So I guess Rae Sremmurd didn't care about Trump back then. - SelfDestruct
I know it loses all it's meaning when people say it all the time, but I'm not kidding when I say this is the worst song I've ever heard. These losers think they can rap, when they can't. At all. RIP Hip-Hop, 1979-2015 - Spark_Of_Life

Just because the artist is 11 doesn't excuse her from the song she made. When I listened to the song, it immediately did not appeal to me. Not surprising it's very feminine and edgy-like, the beat is very identical to Fancy. It doesn't even sounds like two best friends, just some girls that like to beat up boys and compliment each other's bras. I am still very young and my songs are more diverse than those lyrics. Going more on topic, the song can only relate to girly females that are attractive and don't do their homework, I guess. The key to making a good song is to make it relate to a common situation, that can be placed with ANYONE. For example, a song about a father dying and his son's grief. That could be replaced with a song about a dragon dying and their friend's grief. Or maybe it could be transitioned to an entirely new meaning. There's barely any other relation or different definitions with anything else in this song. Leaving on one last note, Best Friends is so ...more

Don't get me wrong; I usually like female artists in general, with the exception of the recent ones like Meghan Trainor and Iggy Azalea, but this is one of the most boring attempts I have ever heard of a song, and I have to admit it.
The most major flaw of the song is the title of it and how it's sang. OK, it's about battling things like cancer and depression, but Rachel's rather vapid voice and the not-so strong instruments used make it sound rather weak compared to strong. The title says FIGHT Song, so why not make it sound strong to overcome cancer, depression, et cetera?
Now let's compare Platten herself to artists like Kelly Clarkson and Christina Aguilera. They have made several songs about power, and they are strong and use strong voices. Unless Rachel Platten improves, she can't really be considered strong enough.
Overall, 4/10. It's not as good as I thought it was, but it was a lot better than I feared. - Swellow
For some reason I don't wanna despise this song as much as I do. This is probably my pick for the most overhated song of 2015, and this is coming from someone who hates it. When people call this the weakest, most energy-less song ever, it's honestly a stretch. Generic and bland, maybe, but powerless? This isn't the slowest song of all time (apologizing to Adele in advance), and the percussion and vocal enhancements are enough of a presence to give the song some punch, along with Platten's surprising charisma.
Now don't get me wrong, I don't like this song, in fact I give it a 1.5/5. But I can respect it, at the least. I believe Platten is talented and that the entirety of Wildfire was a mistake, and that it's not continued in the future. - WonkeyDude98
I usually don't like to make this claim, seeing as it's so bold, but I sincerely believe that this is the worst song I've ever heard. It sounds like something that you would find in a 14-year-old's diary, and the music just makes it worse. How do you make a song called "Fight Song" boring? How does that even happen?!
I think what upsets me the most is the fact that this peaked at #6. Of all the songs this year that cracked the top ten, this was the one that deserved it the least. So many better artists out there, yet we gave success to this song that sounds like Platten wasn't even trying. It is by no means the most unlistenable song I've heard, but I can't think of any song right now that I respect less. When One Direction can release a song with more energy than a song called "Fight Song," that's just sad.
You say that last sentence like One Direction's songs are not energetic. That's one of the saving graces about them, liar. - WonkeyDude98
For a song that has "Fight" in the title, it fails to inspire. Rachel Platten doesn't have Kelly Clarkson's powerhouse vocals or Taylor Swift's above average songwriting. I can easily make a long list of empowerment anthems that can easily replace Fight Song. 4/10. - NiktheWizV 43 Comments
I can't believe Chris Stapleton, the man behind the Traveler album (which is a really great album), actually wrote THIS. I'm just glad this was never released as an official single. Not only does it reek of Thomas' nasal delivery, but it also has that terrible lyric where he claims that his new sound is "funkified" through his love of Memphis Tennessee and the Charlie Daniels Band. - NiktheWiz
The worst song of Tangled Up and could be worse than Unlock the Swag. Seriously, other than the guitar, you have A KAZOO. WHAT THE HECK, MAN. NOT COOL. NOW you're BEING LIEK MIKE WILL MADE IT. SCREW YIU. His voice is infuriating me so bad. Ugh. -5/5. - AlphaQ
The worst song on Tangled Up, and one of the worst songs of the entire year. The beat is bassline, guitar, and...kazoo? WHAT?! Oh yeah, and Thomas Rhett gutlessly tells all girls to "shake their south side", but HOW ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO DO THAT WHEN THERE IS NO ACTUAL MELODY?! Oh yeah, and HE MIMICS DJ MJSTARD'S WATERMARK.
Just...burn this song. - WonkeyDude98
This song tries so hard to sound imposing and revolutionary that it's adorable. If you know me, you'd think I'd like this, since it sounds absolutely gigantic, primarily in the percussion and the thick layering of Halsey's voice on the chrous.
But I hate this song. It's just dull and stale. Halsey isn't bad at singing, but there are artists who are better singers and are better at sounding big than Halsey. Even if Halsey is average, the song sounds stale, and the beat is unoriginal, the breaking point for me is the lyrics.
Holy lord is this song corny. "We are the new Americana/High on legal marijuana/Raised on B.I.G.gie and Nirvana/We are the new Americana"
This is one of the worst hooks of the entire YEAR. First off, this can't be NEW Americana when you reference the Notorious B.I.G. and Nirvana (artists you should not even think about having the honor to call out for that matter) and have a beat that sounds so boring, stale, and lifeless despite being so loud ...more - WonkeyDude98
Another pop singer who is trying too hard to be "indie", "alternative". This song in particular sounds an awful lot like National Anthem by Lana Del Rey. Plus the lyrics "Raised on Biggie and Nirvana" are cringe-worthy. Definitely one of the worst this year.
Totally agree, especially the point that it sounds a lot like National Anthem. - jojen_reed
Everyone is complaining about the "raised on biggie and nirvana line" but
1) just because she's younger doesn't mean she can't know those artists
2) she's said before how that line is supposed to represent that she's biracial
I don't even listen to Halsey that much, but at least her songs have more meaning then like 99.9% of the songs on here. Call me butthurt, but I'm just saying that I respect her music and like that it is more relatable then the songs out there like Dear Future Husband and Fancy.
Eh strange love control and haunting were better. - AnnieCallieV 12 Comments
This song is complete garbage. I despise Fetty Wap, I truly do, he is a talentless hack who is fake as hell. What really surprises me is that he wasn't a one hit wonder, he had 4 hits this year WHAT THE HELL!?!?! Why the hell is this guy getting so much praise, he can't rap, his flow is horrible and his voice is god awful. He's just like any other crappy modern rapper so why is he getting praise? Also I forgot to mention his songs sound exactly the same, In fact, he is the most same sounding "musician" I have ever heard. He reuses the same beats and even the same lyrics. But what pisses my off the most is that he has only been around for 1 year and he got 3 hits in the top 11 in billboard hot 100. This was last achieved by The Beatles. THE ' Beatles! It disgusts me that somebody so talentless in every single way, who has only been around for a year has achieved something The Beatles achieved. Is this really how bad rap has become?
I agree SO MUCH. When I heard this song, I heard this horrible, chocking, voice, along with sounds that I'm surprised is qualified as music! - FennikenFan9
Yup. I do not like this. Fetty Wap sounds like he is crying. Lol.
This song needs to be higher on the list. Fetty Wap sounds like he is whining more than a baby after it soiled its diaper, and all it's about is him drug dealing with his girl. I don't get how so many people like this dude. In his songs, all he does is sound like he is whining and he is always talking about being with a girl. Really, whenever I hear his voice, I want to cut my ears off. How does someone this bad at rapping become so popular in just one year? I'll never get how so many people obsess over Fetty's "songs." Anyway, this should be #2, under Watch Me by Silento, the most annoying and terrible song of the year. It's nothing but an insult to rap and music as a whole.
I like the chorus/hook of this song. I also like the backing in general, fits the song. When he raps the verses, it doesn't sound that great. It almost feels like he doesn't fit in with the music in some places. - AquaturtleV 38 Comments
And I thought We Can't Stop is too much... - SamuiNeko
It's about Miley's baby obsession and about how she wants to be one again. No comment. - Swellow
To reasons why this song should be higher, check out the music video...
People just hate the video. The song is good though. - AnnieCallieV 6 Comments
I heard this song twice. At two different stores. It's also highly overrated and overplayed. Come on, Twenty One Pilots. You can do better. I'VE HEARD BETTER FROM YOU! - RiverClanRocks
The hook isn't all that bad in this song. The verses, on the other hand, are absolutely horrendous. The beat is very uninspired and the rapping on the verse legitimately sounds like it was done by a retarded person. I hear this song almost every day on the radio, and I want to change the station so badly, but my sister won't let me.
This song is good, but overplayed. Shouldn't be on this list. It was one of the best songs of last year. - RalphBob
Not that I've ever enjoyed their music, but just saying, they've released better. - naFrovivuSV 31 Comments
Although it's overplayed, this song is actually kind of good and has a good beat to it. There's worse songs though, like Hit the Quan, Watch Me, Pretty Girls, et cetera.
Oh god! I can't stand her god awful torturous voice and instrumentals! I truly want to get rid of this garbage whenever possible! - SelfDestruct
*Sigh* I used to like this, but it's become vapid and dumb at this point where I made a rant about it. Elle King's voice is OK, but goes off the pitch, especially the chorus. The instrumental was average but is ruined out by the song, the lyrics are undeniably terrible, and the video is awful. I do hate the music videos where men exploit women with scanty clothes, but doing it vice versa by showing women with clothes and men with underwear and innuendo themes doesn't help.
Also, it's now becoming overplayed in my country. I never heard it once, but then it came on and it kept on playing. - Swellow
I love the chorus, but I HATE the rest. If I listen to this song, it's just for the chorus. But the rest of it just makes me wanna puke. Somebody should slap the chorus onto a different song. Maybe a Taylor Swift song? She seems to be the only female singer that I can tolerate nowadays.

This is like if you mixed poop with pizza, and you'd have this.
My lips will be "movin'" when I tell you to stop singing, Meghan Trainor! You may be a great person, but I don't appreciate it when your voice invades everyone's radios. Maybe you could get a different job that doesn't require singing. - Turkeyasylum
She is better as a rapper, search her on YouTube saying "Meghan Trainor raps Nicki Minaj" - sryanbruen
She was supposed to be a one-hit wonder, only creating one annoying song, but then she created two more just for money. - ethanmeinster
This song is the worst song of ALL TIME in my opinion. Her voice is annoying, the lyrics are awful, the beat is a downgraded ripoff of F*** You by Cee-Lo Green. I know you're lying because you are talking, implying that you never tell the truth, and you think I'm DUMB?! - MysteryIdeas
This is better than AATB and DFH, plus it's not even sexist. - DCfnafV 38 Comments
People, you have it all wrong. Grammer is saying here how someone is trying to seduce him, and he's trying not do get drunk and mess up. That's why he says "Nah, honey I'm good", where he doesn't hesitate to say no. While Cheerleader, it says "No, not really", sounding like he had to think for a second about whether or not to say no. Also, this song has so much better music and lyrics than Cheerleader.
No, this song is NOT better than Cheerleader. It's about the same in premise: snarky, bland song about how one thinks about cheating when going out to a club, and then patting their self on the back for not doing it. This thought should never even cross your mind when you're happy with you've already got.
The striking difference between this and Cheerleader (besides musically which this does well and Cheerleader fails at spectacularly) are the tone and situation.
1) OMI isn't drunk off his head unlike Grammer in the situation. Less of a reason to be in this conflict.
2) Compare "no, not really" to "nah, I'm good". Huge difference.
3) "Do I make you feel like cheating? " Is explicitly said in Cheerleader. That isn't reasonable in the slightest and should actually make you more decisive about the decision. Meanwhile, Grammer is actively seducted but still succeeds.
3/5 - WonkeyDude98
This is still much better than Cheerleader. FITE MEV 14 Comments
Welp, they decide to rip off Dr. Dre's flow from an older song. I'd swear; If Tyga or Chris Brown manage to sample Nuthin' But a G-Thang, there's going to be blood. - Swellow
If Eminem and Dre aren't suing for the stolen flow, then it'd be criminal. - WonkeyDude98
I wish that this stupid band, along with their stupid Directioners would just go away for good and never come back
Glad I'm not the only one! But even if they go away we will still have Zayn (or however the hell you spell that god damn name) thinking he can pull off a solo career, and trying to be 'sexy.' - Hater
I actually used to like this song, but it is so overplayed and I want to rip my ears out whenever I hear it. Plus the directioners acted horrible towards some emo artists, and told their kids to cut. I listen to some emo music which is so much better than POP MUSIC. I don't even listen to the bands that they did this to, but that is horrible to do. All I have to say about this is THANK GOODNESS FOR ROCK MUSIC AND THANK GOODNESS FOR SCREAM UKULELE RAP
One Direction more like One Erection or No D. One Direction has been an absolute failure since the very beginning, but this is probably their worst song! Its absolutely 100% pure auto tune and the lyrics suck and very generic. Did I mention that One Direction don't write their songs? No? Ok, I'll say it now, THEY DON'T WRITE THEIR SONGS! That just proves how talentless One Direction really are. Overall this song really sucks and so do One Direction.
I hope you go burn in heck. They (1D) just wanted to acomplish something in life and they did. So guys, just stop the hate. Nobody deserves this.
~Yours sincerely, Aastha
P.S. I'm not a fan, not a hater.
Her voice is not even bad. There is a difference between having a high voice and a bad singing voice. Also, if you listen to the rest of her songs, you will see that they actually have more meaning. Give me as many thumbs downs as you like, call me butthurt, or whatever, but you will still look like a bunch of idiots. If you are looking for a music artist to hate, then hate the ones who are ACTUALLY bad, like 2 Chainz, Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Miley Cyrus, One Direction, Chris Brown, etc.
This is a prime example of those sexial songs that we complain air on the radio. I don't mind the beat, but the lyrics murder the whole purpose of the song. "Touch me like you do"? I don't think anyone wants that message in their head. And I recently found out it was made for Fifty Shades of Gray: The Movie. What a surprise given the content...
Overall, 5/100. And the five was just because of the so-so beat. That's the only reason it even got points besides pity points. - Turkeyasylum
The problem with this song is that it is too corny. Like seriously, touch me like you do? I'm sure that people will get nightmares because of that message. Also there is too much autotune and you can obviously hear it. This was also made for Fifty Shades of Gray which is completely obvious too.
Ew I hate ellie goulding - AnnieCallieV 43 Comments
I really fon't understand why this is here! The background music is very powerful and clean and allows for Sia's amazing and emotional vocals to shine through in balance with each other! Doesn't deserve to be this high...
I'd like to see you cover this song and sound as good as Sia does.
Haha. The cover album is very funny
While being slightly overplayed, this is a lush showcase for Ms. Fuller's talent, more so than the popy sensation that was Chandelier. Her lyrics are female-impowering and just plain beautiful. While she isn't everyone's cup of tea, there is no denying Sia's extreme talent, which she uses to stunning affect in this track.
It's mainly the fact that the hook is one of the most ear-grating hooks ever written. - WonkeyDude98
She's trying too hard to sound edgy. -_-
This song summarizes my biggest problem with 2015 music - for the most part, we just got boring, generic, flat and forgettable songs that really won't be remembered or will stand out in the future. Say what you want about 2012, you still have to admit - it was a pretty bright, distinctive year.
Here? Yawn. A flat, uncoordinated beat that's either trying too hard or not trying hard enough, lame lyrics, and the whole thing is just SO CLICHE AND FORGETTABLE. I know, I use some words way too much, but this is just pathetic, unfocused, slovenly, tedious crap that we have been hearing for about 20 years now.
Just from the title of the song I knew it was gonna be trash

I think this is actually one of Taylor Swift's better songs. Doesn't do much to piss me off at all, unlike something like Shake It Off.
To be quite honest, this isn't a horrible song. I've really been fancying the instrumental version of this song. However, the song itself lacks charisma. It's too plain, and doesn't do too much to really get me going.
Definitely one of her better modern songs.

I could start with the beat. It doesn't stand out whatsoever. The melody is flat and shoved father than it should, and other than the whistling and the autopilot percussion, it doesn't stand out whatsoever, and no instrument is memorable. It doesn't help that the transition between the verses and hook is too short, uncalled for, and unrewarding. That isn't even the worst part of it.
Thomas Rhett's vocals are decidedly terrible. In the verses they're this flat, dull, octave 1 sliver. On the hook, they explode into this nasal, monotonous singing. It's like Adam Levine, but without a hint of personality unlike Levine. On both, he has the stereotypical Southern accent, further accentuating his lack of personality.
The lyrics...ugh. They range from self-consciously generic ("I know that it might sound jaded but I have to say I think love is overrated") to downright despicable ("A slammin door and a lesson learned, I let another lover Crash and ...more - WonkeyDude98
Ripped of Sam Cooke's "Chain Gang" without giving credit. This guy's a talentless hack.
What we have here is a complete douchebag. Just listen to how he casually sings "I let another lover crash and burn" as if it's no big deal. The bland instrumentation and Thomas Rhett's complete lack of personality don't help either. - Zach808
