Top 10 Most Annoying Songs Played on the Radio

While listening to the Radio you might hear these ten songs or more constantly.. and trust me they get annoying fast.

The Top Ten

1 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran

When they first played this song on the was catchy & I loved it. But now they play it on the radio ALL THE TIME, it doesn't even deserve to have that many views.

This song was in the charts a few months ago, yet it still gets played that much on radio, that I just want to rip my own hair out. I turn the radio off when this comes on.

Overrated thrash song that gets looped on the radio!

With the same boring, poorly made instrumentals, and the same unsurprising, dull vocals, "Shape Of You" Is a stupid obnoxious song for stupid obnoxious people, and a sure disappointment to songs that actually deserve what it has.

2 Centuries - Fall Out Boy

I like some parts and hate others but overall I would not have this as #1

My sister loves this but this is just really stupid and they one probably took 1 min to make:-(

Compared to songs today, this song is a masterpiece (and I have mixed feelings for modern fob) - Catacorn

SOME LEGENDS ARE TOLD SO HERES THE FROZEN FRUIT jk but Fall Out Boys older songs are great

3 We Are Never Getting Back Together - Taylor Swift

The worst Taylor Swift breakup song I've ever heard it even gets the worst breakup song award!

So weird,and no one cares about her "love life".

4 Shake It Off - Taylor Swift

Terrible terrible so ng! T his song is about twerki ng! t hat's INAPPROPRIATE!

5 Watch Me (Whip / Nae Nae) - Silento

The fact they played this on radio makes no since to me it's a dance song but most people who listen to radio listen to it in a car so basically they WANT people to try and dance to this song in a car to if they haven't already switched the radio station after hearing the first few god awful seconds of the song which I don't know about you but trying to dance in a moving car is very dangerous and can lead to serious injuries and may even cause a car crash that could fataly wound the driver or even kill the driver. - christangrant

One hit wonder

"Chorus" is outright ear rape - allamassal

€Wutch mah whip, watch mah neigh neigh.
Wutch mah whip whip, watch mah neigh neigh”

This song is awful and annoying, first I thought it was a Rae Sremmurd song. Silento looks 11 in this song.

6 Closer - The Chainsmokers

Used to like it but now it is so annoying!

See my comment on Shape of you. Same thing applies here - Randomator

7 All About that Bass - Meghan Trainor

A rich girl from Nantucket trying to sound ghetto. Yeah... now that works!

How to make a song nowadays

Step 1. Repeat Lyrics 40 times 40 times 40 times 40 times 40 times 40 times 40 times 40-

Step 2. Put preset audio clips in the background like clapping or the same note playing...

Step 3. Make the lyrics really hard to understand!

Step 4. Attempt to make it "hip with the kids"

Step 5. Play it on the radio 100,000 times a day.

8 Gangnam Style - Psy

This song still exists? - Randomator

9 Emotions - Mariah Carey

I hear this song played at my work everyday, I work in a grocery store, they play it from satellite radio, with her annoying high pitch squeals, she sounds like she’s in pain or like someone put an ice pack down her back.

10 Work - Rihanna

Everyone in my school absolutely loves this song, and if you said it was bad, they would defend it with their lives. I hate this song so much, it's annoying and overrated.

This song makes me want to kill myself by driving my car off the nearest cliff.

Hate this song - sabrinafan

Do I even need to delve into how inane this is lyrically? - Mrveteran

The Newcomers

You just Mm? You just MMm what? Use actual words. And no I won't count you in, I told you the first 20 times you asked today. Gr. - truckturner

This song is one of the reasons why Carrie Underwood is a disease in the music industry.

A good song but does it need to be played so much?

Supernatural fans gonna GIT ME!

17 I'm Yours - Jason Mraz

Generic one hit wonder pop song that gets old fast.

18 Believer - Imagine Dragons

Imagine dragons is the gayest, annoying group to come out in the recent decade. every time I hear one of their songs on the radio (which is at least 10 times daily) I want to immediately drive my car into a tree.

Why is everyone so obsessed with this song?

This should be number 1

If you stream Capital FM, this song is easily the most annoying. 17 by MK is also annoying, but it's way better than this one. UK's version of Closer.
