Top Ten Worst Songs of 2015

41 Where Are You Now - Skrillex

Skrillex and Justin Bieber? Sounds like a match made in hell. And yet, the end result is... average. Painfully average. Skrillex has toned down his music from ear-splitting awfulness to generic EDM, and Justin Bieber sounds like he just doesn't care.

That talentless shemale is back again with a sack full of gerbage and now the stupid teenage girls will scream again. Dustbin Bieber, your eligibility lies under the shoes of talented singers. And so called "Beliebers", you are also trash in world like your role model

Well I don't care much about him. However, as a Justin Bieber forget I am shocked how good this song is because of him. - SelfDestruct

I used to like this song. Skrillex production that isn't straight in your face? Check. A drop with actual percussion? Check? Justin Bieber with a voice? Check.

Then I looked again. Ewww. The drop is terrible and easily the worst part of the song. There's this piccolo that runs through and literally makes no sense. There's trap percussion which is very stiff and clunky. Worst of all halfway through there's this gratingly weedy synth bleeding across the percussion and piccolo.

Combine that with the fact that Bieber seems self-obsessed and inert on that mic and it's just ugly.

2/5 - WonkeyDude98

This is one of Justin Bieber's best songs but it's not ad good as I expected it to be.

Drops alright, lyrics aren't that bad, Justin's vocals are actually pretty good and sound better but his voice doesn't have a lot of power and he sounds like he's whispering. Overall a 3.5/5. - AlphaQ

42 Fly - Hopsin

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

43 The Hills - The Weeknd

This song shouldn't be on this list - venomouskillingmachine

This song is pretty good actually. It's dark, moody, and honest - mtndewlord

Basically this summary by Todd in the Shadows sums it up:

"This is just the weirdest godd*mn song. You get this dark, menacing vibe, but then you get this guy who sounds like a munchkin, he presents himself as this bada** ladies' man, and then he's all whiny, and then he invokes one of the most infamously gritty, ugly grindhouse movies in history."

But at least he's not trying to uplift anyone *directs attention to Rachel Platten*, right? Nah, that's too MAINSTREAM. Nah, have a bass that swamps out the entire song, a basic 4 chord synth line, and lyrics that paint everything wrong with modern pop, and that's the way to go! - WonkeyDude98

Eh. I think this is one of The Weeknd's weakest work though. It's too sad and depressing compared to his other stuff. At least the lyrics are decent though. His voice is a bit too sad and stuff. 3/5. - AlphaQ

44 Animals - Maroon 5

This was made in 2014 - RockStarr

Why this is so low? This is should be in the top 10, even number 1. Levine's voice is pissed my pants... - 05yusuf09

I kinda like this song actually

The lyrics are disgusting - Mathyfox441

45 Wildest Dreams - Taylor Swift

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.

5/10 - Mediocre - Sxerks

It's a better song by taylor swift but I still don't really like it

This song Is decent And that's coming from someone Who hated shake it off and blank space - VideoGamefan5

46 7 Years - Lukas Graham

He was told to get friends and he interpreted it as 'get high'. I can only imagine what he did when he was told to get a wife. Also, who gets married when they're ELEVEN?!

No offense, but this song is a little annoying. I mean it has a good rhythm and I can listen to it, but the lyrics are quite annoying.

The music video was released on december 2015 - VideoGamefan5

I like this song but I don't understand it. Why does he have to get married at 11? Whaat?

47 Movin' Up - Alana Thompson

What is this!? A children's rap song?! Lame! Who came up with this garbage, this is worse than watch me. I thought watch me was the worst song of the year, this is worse. Get this to number 1.

Yes this is an actual song. Yes it sucks.

She looks like a skinnier Honey Boo Boo - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Remember people, this is the infamous Honey Boo Boo

48 Adventures - Kid Cudi
49 Want to Want Me - Jason Derulo

It's better than those monstrosities he made in 2014.

I like the chorus, but the verses NEED work.

Nobody wants you, that's why Jordin Sparks left. - PrincessKiana

This Song Is Kinda Ok, Kinda Bad - VideoGamefan5

50 Somebody - Natalie la Rose

This song is so trash! It's a ripoff of not 1, but 2 SONGS! Natalie La Rose is a terrible singer and she just says random gibberish in this song AND THE SONG MAKES NO SENSE! Seriously! Look at the lyrics and try to make sense of them! And of course Jeremih has to appear in the song to make it even worse. I hated this song the moment it came out. This was an absolutely terrible way to start off the year! This song should at least be in the top 10!

Whitney is turning over in her grave at this one. A perfect example of what I call "Kardashian pop" - chiefly urban-oriented pop songs with little to no melody and repetitive beats sung by girls who look better than they sound. See also Demi Lovato and Fifth Harmony. - ChrisInMI80

This is going on my worst list without a doubt, a hated this song upon first listen, its horrible, it samples a classic hit and takes a crap on it. From the first time I heard this song, I know it was going to make my list

There are very few songs that I despise, and this is on the top of the list. Boring and annoying

51 Trouble - Iggy Azalea

This crappy creature who calls herself a rapper must be hanged to death for torturing true music-lovers. Damn! Trash everywhere.

While I agree Iggy Azalea sucks... Why this song? This song is honestly pretty low-key compared to her others, and the chorus and instrumentals are at least decent. Especially compared to that other piece of garbage she released this year with Britney Spears.

This is definitely the most boring song of the year. - Puga

This sounds like a song made for a church full of black people... - Moorefamval

52 Eyes On You - Meek Mill

I'm sitting in the car listening to this crap for the 1000th time and I would rather listen to Friday or Baby than this. - PrincessKiana

It's got a mellow smooth sound to it, now if could just understand what the hell he sing about!

Is this the second time it was on the list - QueenOffoxes

53 All Eyes On You - Meek Mill

Lol meek is trash compared to Drake

At least Drake has SOME good songs, Meek has none and he can't even rap, for real, his flow is in competition with 2 Chainz for the title of that category. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

When a really bad rapper collaborates with the singer of hits like Anaconda and Stupid hoe known for her fakeness, and a woman beater, you get... this. Can you call it rap? No. Can you even call it music? I doubt. - Swellow

Ever since the Drake feud, meek needs some more L's added to his name

54 She's Kinda Hot - 5 Seconds of Summer

One Direction are on the verge of becoming forgotten, and just like I predicted somebody else is going to replace them. And the replacement is none other than 5 Seconds of Summer. Now were going to have little 12 year old girls obsess about them for about 2 years and then, somebody else is going to replace them. THIS GOES ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON!

Listen to this song, then listen to "Teenagers" by My Chemical Romance. They're the same song, except this one has terrible lyrics.

This song is ok, but teenagers is the best song ever it has more of a meaning than "this girl is pretty" Teenagers shows the reality of middle and high school, how there will be people who won't accept you for yourself, there will be people who just don't like you, people will tell you to be yourself and then laugh at you for it. Thank you My Chemical Romance

The person who said "One Direction is on the Verge of being forgotten" leave them out of this!

55 Habits - Tove Lo

A lot of people seem to analyse this song wrongly, specifically, the concept. This is one of the reasons I defend this song.

First of all, no. Just because a song mentions the word "high" doesn't mean it's literally about getting drunk off alcohol or doing drugs. In the song, she is talking about a breakup which has torn her self esteem down, so she is trying to keep her cool by avoiding what would bring back the memories of her past boyfriend, which could cause her stress to become worse. While it references typical party behaviour, at least she has a reason to mention it. (Ellie Goulding wrote the lyrics, so expect breakup and partying)

The next thing is her voice. Come on, people, her voice isn't even an autotuned disaster. It's one of the more unique voices of the year and fits the theme of the song, but the problem specifically is how clogged up it can be at time, especially at the chorus and high notes.

And lastly, the beat is fitting but a slight bit too ...more - Swellow

Yeah, but who the bloody he'll eats their dinner in the bathtub, then straight after decides to go to sex clubs - Hater

Tove Lo is a Kesha rip off

People don't understand the lyrics. They listen to it once and think it's just about getting drunk or high. Morons... - mtndewlord

Cough Its From 2014 Cough - VideoGamefan5

56 Flex (Ooh Ooh Ooh) - Rich Homie Quan

Trash. Just listen to it and come back and tell me why this shouldn't be #1

There is a reason why I don't listen to rap music, and this is a great example why

I used to like this song, then I decided to look up the lyrics.

I don't even know what he's saying 90% of the song - Mcgillacuddy

57 Talking Body - Tove Lo

People need to stop hating on Tove Lo. If you listen to her album, you'll see that all the songs come together to form a story (split into 3 sections: the sex, the love, and the pain). This song fits with the sex section, which is about the fun aspects of the relationship. She's easily one of the best current pop singers - mtndewlord

I will admit, her other song was ok, BUT THIS IS HORRIBLE! MY GOD THIS SONG BLOWS! Tove Lo lacks originality and she is a complete ripoff of Kesha. Tove Lo is way worse. At least Kesha's songs are catchy and are actually fun and enjoyable. Tove Lo on the other hand, her songs sound the same, they're all about how desperate she is for a man, and her lyrics suck as well, "If you love me right for life on and on and on." what! This way not be the worst song of the year, but it easily goes in the top 10 worst.

I don't like Tove Lo, but I will say her other song was ok, but THIS IS HORRIBLE! MY GOD THIS SONG BLOWS! THIS EASILY GOES ON MY TOP 10 WORST SONGS OF THE YEAR! And Tove Lo lacks originality and she's a complete ripoff of Kesha, and Tove Lo is wwayy worse! This is a lyric in the song, "If you love me right for life on and on and on." At least Kesha's song are catchy and she never directly said that she's going to. Tove Lo on the other hand, her songs are pathetic and are about how desperate she is for a man. Overall this song sucks, it may not be the worst song of the year, but is should be much higher on this list

This song should go die in a hole! And what is the tune? The lyrics are so horrible!

This song shouldn't be on here. selena is an amazing vocalist and zedd a really good DJ.

59 Back to Back - Drake

This song is good. Proves that Drake won his beef with Meek Mill. - WonkeyDude98

Drake did get some good chops in at Meek, but it's all for nothing, as Meek really hasn't given up his career. - SwagFlicks

This list is the worst in the world. I can't stand these rap haters who want to vote for rap songs. - FerrariDude64

Well this is a bad rap song! You gotta admit! I like rap myself and it pains me to see a lot of rap songs up high in this list. But this one is puke-inducing. - SelfDestruct

Drake sucks, he is the worst rapper of all time.

60 Cake by the Ocean - Dnce

Wow, Swellow, that was generous. 4/10? Really!?

This is just terrible. With how terribly Nick Jonas did this year, Joe Jonas did NOT need to make a comeback, but he did. And he managed to top the awfulness of Nick, because at least he had Chains and Levels?

If you can turn your brain off, this is somewhat enjoyable except for that whiplash effect from the pre-hook to the chorus. If you can't, then I feel bad for you, because this is an absolute mess lyrically. The metaphors are sloppy, and the message is not only not subtle whatsoever, it's downright disgusting.

I give this song a half-star/5, and that's being generous. - WonkeyDude98

@Swellow: This comment was made before I realized it was a mistake. - WonkeyDude98

This song was in the top 20 for best songs of 2015. But why? It's absolutely obnoxious, everything about it. Besides, do you really think they're talking about literally eating cake by an ocean? Think again.

Cake by the Ocean is interestingly a wrong misinterpretation of "sex by the beach" by the Swedish producers. While the title doesn't worry me, the lyrics are horrifying, they sound ridiculously high and the music video is just hot ladies dancing on a beach with the members of the band.
-4/10. Do not listen. - Swellow

I like this song.it does have some bad words but other than that great song
