Good Songs by Bad Artists

This list is about bad artists/bands that made good songs.

The Top Ten

1 Love Yourself - Justin Bieber

I feel like his music is getting a little better

I hate Justin Bieber with a passion, and although this song is nothing special in my opinion, I wouldn't necessarily call it bad.

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

Ed Sheeran wrote this song - Iamcool

2 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa

What Wiz Khalifa, for the most at least, is good

I like it - PeeledBanana

Hey! wiz Khalifa is good

3 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?

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 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

7 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

8 The Comeback - Blood on the Dance Floor

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

9 Dance for You - Beyonce

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

10 Sorry - Justin Bieber

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

This wasn't written by Justin... It was just sung by him. That's why the song's decent. - Silverfroststorm

Nope. It's still bad. - RiverClanRocks

Well it's lame. - AlphaQ

The Contenders

11 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

2 chainz ruined his verse
