I feel like his music is getting a little better

To Me, This Is A Garbage Song From A Pretty Bad (But Not The Worst) Artists - VideoGamefan5

This is an atrocious song from a bad (but not awful) artist - ProPanda

2 How You Remind Me - Nickelback

Oh god, yes! I grew up with this one. Why can't Nickelback release good songs like this? Oh, wait, I can answer that: that would mean they'd be releasing good music that isn't about sex and drugs.

Also, did you know this album was released on 9/11/01?

3 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa

I personally think Wiz ruined the feeling to this song with the rapping. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

Hey! wiz Khalifa is good

4 Cheyenne - Jason Derulo
5 Oui - Jeremih

I hate jerimih, but wow this song's fantastic. The beat is polished and upbeat, and Jeremih's annoying voice actually sounds great here

6 Mirror - Lil Wayne

Mirror is actually decent. Mirror and 6 Foot 7 Foot were the 1st Lil Wayne song she I heard and you all know which one I prefer. Mirror because I hated 6 Foot 7 Foot.

Now Mirror is really great compared to the rest of The Carter 4. Which people somehow don't hate it as much as Encore.

Mirror isn't so catchy but Lil Wayne's lyrics were decent. Bruno Mars also did a good job. The chorus was really strong and powerful so yea. Congrats Wayne. This is your best song from TC4. 4/5 - AlphaQ

7 Hands to Myself - Selena Gomez

Now how is this song good? Because you see Selena half naked in the video?

No. This song suck!

This song is bland, generic AND ABSOLUTE GARBAGE. Seriously...? - AlphaQ

This is a bad song by a good artist. - ProPanda

8 Sorry - Justin Bieber

Justin is bad but not at all because girls love justin but for this is fine just fine

Nope. It's still bad. - RiverClanRocks

If it's Bieber, it's always bad. - Goatworlds

Well it's lame. - AlphaQ

9 The Comeback - Blood on the Dance Floor

One of the worst bands ever, but guess what, they made a good song!

10 Confession - Florida Georgia Line

The Newcomers

? This Means War - Nickelback
? Look Alive - Rae Sremmurd

The Contenders

11 Zero - Chris Brown
12 Dance for You - Beyonce

This is a perfect example of a great song by a bad artist. - DaWyteNight

13 Burn It to the Ground - Nickelback
14 All the Lights - Kanye West

Kanye's a good artist, though... - SwagFlicks

15 Goodbye Graceful - Falling In Reverse
16 Super Bass - Nicki Minaj

Thank you for adding this. I wanted to say this for ages. Pink Friday could be added here because it was decent stuff. Unfortunately she's gone downhill since The Pinkprint and her new music is garbage. (2016 was meh) - AlphaQ

17 Halls of Illusion - Insane Clown Posse V 2 Comments
18 Company - Justin Bieber

Justin Beiber will NEVER BE GOOD. - SeeU
