Top 10 Cheesiest Songs

The Top Ten

1 Barbie Girl - Aqua

Lemme go get some blue cheese this is strong cheese you can't get out your nose

I'm a Barbie girl I'm livin my own world I'm am plastic call fanashion you can't touch my BUTT girl

Why? Why it is so damn cheesy? This it the epithome of cheesiness

I'll admit to liking Aqua, but WHY on Earth did they have to release this song? Sure, it appealed to kids who still played with Barbies back then, but now those kids are grown up and it makes us scoff.

2 Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go - Wham!

Wow. Someone must really hate George Michael. - Misfire

3 Careless Whisper - George Michael

Careless Whisper is the best type of cheesy.

More like "Spineless Lisper" - xandermartin98

4 Whip My Hair - Willow Smith
5 Hello Kitty - Avril Lavigne
6 True - Spandau Ballet
7 Hey Mickey - Toni Basil

And to think she was nearing 40 when it was released... crazy.

Aw. I like this song a lot. - PhoenixAura81

I mostly remember this being in chocolate commercials. Appropriate.

9 All About that Bass - Meghan Trainor
10 Heartbeat - Don Johnson

The Newcomers

? Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin
? Don't Cry - Guns 'N Roses

The Contenders

11 Cotton Eye Joe - Rednex
12 Friday - Rebecca Black
13 Last Christmas - Wham!
14 You Spin Me Round - Dead or Alive

The video is so cheesy. and since then Pete Burns has made himself look like a woman.

15 The Final Countdown - Europe

These guys were pretty much proto power metal.

16 I'll Tumble 4 Ya - Culture Club
17 I Really Like You - Carly Rae Jepsen
18 (I Just) Died in Your Arms - Cutting Crew
19 Photograph - Nickelback
20 Never Gonna Give You Up - Rick Astley

This song will never get old (Memes live on! ), but I do agree that this is cheesy. - Misfire

Top Ten material - AliciaMae

21 Especially for You - Kylie Minogue & Jason Donovan
22 I'm Too Sexy - Right Said Fred

It might be cheezy but its super good - Izalien

Uhhhhhh... I hate this song like no other. I mean whats the point to it? - fireinside96

This song is so cocky sounding. Confidence is one thing, this song is another

Obvious joke song.
Still corny as hell, though.

23 She Blinded Me With Science - Thomas Dolby
24 Through the Fire and Flames - Dragonforce

Bands like DragonForce and Manowar sit firmly in the "so bad they're hilarious" camp.

25 Take On Me - a-Ha

Ok... What? Take On Me isn't cheesy. And if it is at all cheesy, it's the right kind of cheesy. Like, the most delicious cheese to ever exist. The kind of cheese you can eat daily and never get tired of the taste.

A-ha is one of the best and overlooked artists ever. Although Take On Me is the most iconic, and its music video won me over and became my favorite A-ha song, most fans will say that Take On Me is not their best song. So check out some of the other ones. Morten Harket's voice though... *faints*

And let's face it, if this song is cheesy, then the crap of today is like... Ancient moldy Gorgonzola cheese. Blech! No thank you.

26 Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO
27 Prisoner of Your Eyes - Judas Priest
28 Rorke's Drift - Sabaton
29 Baby - Justin Bieber

This song is pretty cheesy but nowhere near the worst song ever. - allamassal

30 Lips of an Angel - Hinder

Not only incredibly cheesy, but unlistenable as well.

32 I Think We're Alone Now - Tiffany
33 You Give Love a Bad Name - Bon Jovi
34 We Built This City - Starship
35 Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now - Starship
36 Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold

"I tryaaayiayi...to travel through the nighyyy..."
"saighyi (sight)... lighyt (light)... heighyyy (height)... ignighyy (ignite)... alrighyyy (all right)"
Worst vocal performance ever. No joke, Justin Bieber sings better than this. - Joeljohns249

37 Heaven or Hell - Gamma Ray
38 Wannabe - Spice Girls
39 Truly Madly Deeply - Savage Garden
40 U Can't Touch This - MC Hammer

Can't touch what? The bowl of food in front of my face? I want to eat my soup, and I will eat my soup. Mr. Hammer. Thanks.

It may be incredibly stupid, but you can't help but be thankful for this song's existence.
This is just one of those songs that makes you think, "Huh? People actually thought this was cool at some point? "

41 Livin on a Prayer - Bon Jovi

The vocals are lame enough, but the instrumental to this song raises the cheese factor even further.

This should be higher - TheHabsFan

Stupid song. - Camaro6

I think we can all agree that this is one of the dumbest songs of the 90s.

I don't care. I still love it anyways. - Misfire

50 Unwritten - Natasha Bedingfield

FEEL DURR RAIN ON YARR SKIN - xandermartin98
