Top Ten Worst Sounds In The World

What sounds set your teeth on edge and shivers down your body?
The Top Ten
1 Crying Babies

Ugh I remember I used to hate Walmart for this. ESPECIALLY WHEN THE PARENTS don't DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT- what was I talking about? Oh yeah, CRYING BABIES. I know it's the only way a baby can communicate, but COME ON. And Justin Bieber's voice? That's nothing compared to this.

This deserves to be higher than Justin Bieber's voice honestly even though I don't care about his voice.

I always get SO ANNOYED when I hear the sound of babies crying but for justin bieber's songs I don't mind his voice is not annoying..

This noise is so annoying.

Our ears are tuned to it so well because before the bronze age people people didn't develop the annoyed emotion and the babies cry was to tell there was something wrong, however babies are too oversensetive nowdays.

I'm on a plane going to Sfax in Tunesia then to Sousse, I get on and there's a delay of 4 hours. I think 'Oh Great.' 4 hours later we finally get off and then suddenly the eargrating sound of a crying baby, and it only stopped when we were off the damn plane! Reminder: The flight took 6 hours!

2 Justin Bieber's Voice

Justin Bieber's voice is one of the worst sounds as a matter of fact indeed, but the absolute worst sound ever heard was the volcano that erupted in August 27, 1883 called Krakatoa, which exploded and made the scariest, most satanic and EAR RAPING sound of ALL TIME! It was so bad that it was heard more than 3000 MILES away and turned EVERYBODY's ears within hundreds of miles into crap and triggered 130 foor tsunamis that killed 36000 people, it's worse than anything else on this list and it's on the Volcanic Eruption section of this list, which should be #1 as a BIG matter of fact, there hasn't been any sound anywhere near as bad and painful as Krakatoa after that, the only sounds worse than Justin Bieber's voice nowadays are those of bombs, rockets and wrecks.

Horrible sound, but nothing like rockets, bombs or even the Krakatoa volcano eruption in 1883, that was one of the worst recorded eruptions of all time, Nelsonerico is right about what he said on here months ago, and I agree with that, so should a lot of people with great knowledge, it was heard more than 3000 MILES away, even from hundreds of miles, it blasted everyone's eardrums and whole bodies, making them bleed everywhere, yet the people there and farther away got killed by the tsunami after that, even Justin Bieber would get every part of him blasted if he was around at that time, doing his job, anyone who says that Justin Bieber's voice is the worst sound in the world hasn't experienced the much worse ones, like bombs, rockets, crashes and ESPECIALLY KRAKATOA! Get some knowledge please.

Only slightly less bad than someone SNORING when you're trying to get to sleep (unless Justin Beiber is playing in the background, which then wakes the sleeping baby who starts crying, PLUS the snoring... )


I wouldn't know if his voice is bad because I always manage to switch off the radio before he starts warbling. Honestly, I just don't know how I do it...

3 Little Kids Screaming

I was on a plane going down to Florida not too long ago and before we departed, there was this toddler in the seat in front of me who would not stop screaming and crying and it annoyed me very much. At least the toddler wasn't screaming and crying throughout the entire flight.

My little cousin is so annoying and my brothers to they are always constantly screaming and shouting right in my ears. I cannot describe how much younger siblings and cousins bother me. It really bugs me when they say something totally illogical or obscure and I say something that is true and they say ask a grow up or I don't care. Even if I leave them alone they just follow me and torment me constantly. I am glad the door at my house locks. However there I have no rooms to lock myself in to escape the torment. The way I see it being an only child is like winning a million bucks. I am always tired because YOUNGER SIBLINGS MISSION IS TO SLAUGHTER YOU.

My Little sister cries and screams over the littlest things. I always get headaches because of that. Hopefully when she gets older, shell stop overreacting about everything and learn that not everything goes her way.

The weird thing os that I can't finish a conversation with a kid without a grown up walking up to me and saying "Watch your profanity" which I have no idea what that means.

4 Fingernails Scraping On a Blackboard

I haven't heard it before but my mom says it is really bad the voice you see here and scraping a knife on a bottle are both annoying not only because they are sharp what makes them really annoying and scary is that we remember a hunter from the time of human ancestors that fearing that creature was really important so it is saved in our DNA memory and we still fear these voices

Like scratching a plate with a fork in a silent room filled with forks being scratched by plates. Just thinking of riding a car of plates in a road of forks pointing up makes me sick.

But this is not worse than Nicki Minaj's blabbering. This is the second worst sound in the world!

Every time I hear this, I start to shiver. Just thinking about it makes me shiver. *Shivers*

5 Someone Chewing Loudly

I HATE the sound of chewing in general, so you guys can probably imagine my extremely unbearable disturbance at LOUD CHEWING! Shut you mouthes people! Learn how to eat with that mouth closed! And after you learn that, teach yourself how to take smaller bits!

My dad does this all the time! Loud as day! It drives me insane!

Makes me want to throw a rock at the persons head

I hate these people

6 Scraping a Fork Up and Down a Plate

Oh my gosh my brother does this to me all the time it hurts so bad

This makes me feel like my teeth is about to fall out

Oh my gosh. It sounds like nails on a chalkboard!

Just by looking at this, you made me cringe

7 Loud Swallowing

Man I could take this in so many dirty ways...

The loud *gulp* followed by tsk-Ah. Kills me.

Seems like a dirty eating machine

This doesn't bother me

8 Someone Chewing Gum

OH. MY. GOD. EVERYONE in the world seems to be chewing gum, everywhere I go. I walk into class, EIGHT PEOPLE ARE CHEWING GUM RIGHT BEHIND ME. And the REALLY loud chewers are in the back, so you can hear everyone at the same time. I have condition called misophonia, which means gum chewing and some other noises can actually drive me into strong rage and/or panic. It's a living heck. People, be courteous please. I'm not the only person in the world with misophonia, and far from the only person bothered by gum chewing. You're not even supposed to have gum. You're in school. So please, be courteous, and maybe cut off the gum or possibly chew with your mouth closed.

Try having 3 girls CHOMPING gum with their mouths WIDE open right next to you at the same table and concentrating in class so that you don't fail!

Its rude and annoying. I don't understand why you have to chew your gum so loudly... I don't see you eating other food that way..

Smack Smack Smack. It is very annoying! I hate it when someone has to chew gum super loudly and tell the world that they are chweing gum.

9 Burps

Disgusting, even worse when they say how good it was... It makes me nearly puke, sometimes it does!

I HATE IT SO MUCH, WHEN SOMEONE BURP TO MY FACE THAT SO LOUD.. AND THEN HE WILL BE PROUD!

Burps may be gross, but hilarious! Like big ones!

Burps are great, what is wrong with you people!?

10 Someone Eating a Banana

True, I hate it when somebody talks to me while eating a banana and here's another worst sound: Somebody making smacking noises with there mouth, I can't stand it :3


Can't stomach the noise of a banana sloshing around someone's mouth - especially if they're talking. Yuk!

If you don't mind me asking, how does someone eating a banana make sound?... That came out so wrong.

Jeez, it's like I'm talking to a monkey smacking his banana around. Disgusting!

The Contenders
11 Continuous Sniffing

I have a theory when it comes to sniffing. I rate its just as contagious as yawning, because if I hear someone constantly sniffing I can't help but sniff myself, I sniff even at the thought of someone sniffing, no matter how hard I try to not do it

The worst is when someone sniffs and is obviously stuffed up. The wetness of the sound makes me want to puke

One kid I knew did this all the time on the bus, I so badly wanted to shovel sponges in his nose

The only time my mother sniffed something was when it was a flower.

12 Creaky Door

Creaky doors usually appear in horror movies

I'm a scaredy cat. So, this one is scary.

It makes me jump every time

Nothing bad, just a bit spooky.

13 Vomiting

Positively disgusting especially because it can be a contagious disease that can come your way. I hate puke, period.

It sounds so terrible, (I'm not gonna describe the sound) and it makes me feel sick...

This ruined nachos for me because someone vomited nachos on my lap

Whenever I hear someone vomiting, it makes me wanna vomit too.

14 Someone Drumming Fingers On Desk

I'm always drumming my fingers along the desk, although I feel quite bad for the people beside me. Just a habit that I can't contain, although sadly - and annoying habit.

A kid in my class ALWAYS did this. It's so annoying and you can never concentrate. This should seriously be first.

Last year, some kid in my class started drumming their fingers on their desk and I couldn't concentrate

I do it all day to the tune of the king of New York dance break from newsies

15 Alarm Clock

It's the noise that reminds you to go to school or work every morning

And On A School Day

I never set mine

16 Farts

Holy,Ok ok so...I was coming from school and finally arrived I was really holding my pee cause I forgot to go to the toilet.So I went to the toilet and I ALMOST FAINTED! My dad used the toilet and I could smell it from when I just entered.It sounded like really loud bubbles rapidly popping.

These are entertaining! What's worse is the silent but deadly fart! No sound but it smells so bad! It does not smell like teen spirit!

The complexity and variations of this sound is amusing...the only problem is that it comes with a bonus.

Facts have an awesome sound. There are different variations.

17 Car Alarms

Dumb people who just leave their cars screaming down the parking lot! Best cure... Axe!

My neighbours car alarm use to go off in the middle of the night, and I couldn’t sleep through it. So annoying.

18 Airhorn

By far the most annoying sound I have heard. and its in so many commercials now

19 Dog Licking

This is gross!

20 Nicki Minaj's Voice

She sounds like a woman on testosterone pills. WAY WORSE THAN Bieber's VOICE.

It's WAY worse than Justin Bieber's voice. I don't care what anyone thinks.

Worse then nails on a chalkboard now that I think about it

How is this at number 26? It should be way higher.

21 Mosquito Buzzing

You know when you're trying to sleep and a mosquito starts buzzing?

22 Fire Alarm

Speaking of heart attacks one time last summer I went to ESY it is like a summer camp I go to 4 hours each day on Monday through Thursday and the fire alarm went off one day when we had a fire drill and when we walked outside a kid in my class named Jason said "that gave me a heart attack."

I'm sensitive to loud noises, and one time in school the fire alarm went off while I was right next to it. It was truly horrible.

Ah yes the classic way to make you go from being asleep in class to jumping out of your chair in a flash

Afire alarm killed my 3rd grade teacher's hamster, Sir Oreo Poops-A-Lot. Guess how he died? HEART ATTACK FROM THE ALARM!

23 A Cat in Pain

A cat screaming in agony is one of the most painful and saddest noises to hear!

Sorry but that's something a psychopath would say.

That's actually a funny sound, funnier than farts.

24 SpongeBob's Laugh

If SpongeBob do it 6 times it good but too much get annoying watch funny pants so yo might end in the EENT clinic

It's funny but it gets annoying because he does once and he will just keep on doing it

You start to like it at first, but you'll think its annoying after you hear it 30 times.

It gets annoying real quick

25 Sirens

This is very annoying! Stop it you attention seekers! But I can only forgive emergency vechicles for doing this. Anyways, I'm happy that siren sounds are banned in my country.

An anbulance without its siren going was just about to go under a bridge; I thought, then, any second now... I war right. I'm sure they do it for a laugh.

Sirens are actually more to scary as sirens just means something bad is probably happening,like air-raid sirens or fire alarms and others...

DEE DOO DEE DOO! Oh joy someone is injured.And so is my eardrum because of the cacophony.
