Top Ten Most Overplayed Songs

The Top Ten

1 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran Shape of You - Ed Sheeran Cover Art

This song is not bad at all; everyone hates it because it's overplayed. There's a reason people are getting services like Apple Music. It's so that they don't have to listen to this song on the radio. While I don't personally dislike it, I don't like how many artists are succumbing to that "radio-friendly" stereotype of songs.

I had expectations for 2017, and they gave me this. 12 weeks at #1, and it sounded dated from the very second it was unleashed. Its empty, lifeless sound makes me feel as if it should've been dumped into the toxic waste pool that was 2016's pop scene. Songs can overstay their welcome if they please, but for the love of quality content, at least make it good! It has been half a year since this crap was released, and pop stations are still abusing it.

I Hate This song with all my life

Arrghhh, don't even remind me of this! I hear it a thousand times already. (I am not listening to 'sample'

2 Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson Cover Art

One of the best songs on the radio. Its needless to say I would listen to this song over Adele's "Hello" any time.

This has nothing to do with the most overplayed song argument.

How is this overplayed?!? I have only heard it on the radio once!

It's the best song ever how is it overplayed what

I rarely hear this on the radio.

Billie Jean or Thriller is probably the most overplayed song by him.

3 Hello - Adele Hello - Adele Cover Art

Probably the most overplayed artist of all time. There are a couple songs Adele does that are decent, but the radio is a professional at milking it (milking something means overdoing it). Madea’s version was much better!

Those who think this song is the best should clearly get their ears checked. Hello from the hater side, I heard this song 1000 times. Literally 5 times today at LEAST.

This song getting old now. I'm getting sick of listening to it so much. It's was supposed to be the #1 song of 2015 instead of Hotline Bling. They both are getting worse every time I hear it. It was at least good for a while though

It hurts my ears when she goes "Hello from the other side". Why does it? Regardless, is anyone else tired of Adele singing about her stupid ex?

4 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen Cover Art

I hate this song, it's so bland and annoying. It's also one of the many reasons why I generally avoid the pop radio stations.

Shape of You - Very overplayed but it’s only been popular for three years, it could die when we least expect it.
Smooth Criminal - Hell no it’s not nearly played enough for number two.
Hello - Also not very relevant either now. In fact it died out quickly.

Call Me Maybe is 8 years old and I still hear it all the time on pretty much any pop radio. It just plays when you least expect it any time and it just gets annoying quickly. The song is just around like the speed of light. Should be number one easily.

I agree with Hello only being big for a while honestly it got played on the radio for maybe half a year I would even have it below a song like Stressed Out. Smooth Criminal is even weirder not even close to being the most played Michael Jackson song. Shape Of You is the only one I would personally have ahead of Call Me Maybe given how intense it's overplay has been over time plus personal preference.

I wish that some of her other songs like run away with me, your type, or boy problems would get recognition. This song have her a bad name that she doesn't deserve. She's an example of an artist that only gets recognition for her bad songs and her better songs are underrated (her entire album, emotion is good).

I hate this song so much.

5 Girls Like You - Maroon 5 Girls Like You - Maroon 5 Cover Art

Even more overplayed than Shape of You. And what's worse is that it's not even that good.

It, along with High Hopes by Panic! At The Disco, got old REALLY fast. I never liked it in the first place--I was never a fan of guitar-stuffed pop songs involved a guy with a half-grown beard screeching about a girl who will magically make his life better--but now? It's on SO MUCH.

First of all Maroon 5 sucks. This song is so basic please come up with someone original. Next Adam Levine once called girls that wanted a autograph from him ugly chicks. Maroon 5 is both annoying and aggravating. Every time one of there songs come one I want to cover my ears! It’s like all they want to do is make money they don’t care about music at all. They should just quit please give people who want to make music a spot on the radio.

I've heard it ten times in the past hour. Thanks for the variety, radio stations.

6 I Like It - Cardi B I Like It - Cardi B Cover Art

I remember hearing this song a lot on a google ad that played lots probably heard the song everyday for a few weeks until the ad stopped playing

It's Cardi B... Not much else to say. This song is literally everywhere and it's some how getting worse then it already was

This definitely belongs in the top ten. Its an annoying song that is always playing

This is the most overplayed song on the radio right now (up there with In My Feelings). Basically every time I go out, I hear this playing on 2 stations at once at least one time. Top 5 material

7 Trap Queen - Fetty Wap Trap Queen - Fetty Wap Cover Art

I've actually never heard this song on the radio, but I've heard it once on youtube and it was complete garbage.

Even once is overplayed, arrgh.

Never hear this one anymore

Don't recall ever hearing it on the radio.

8 Hotline Bling - Drake Hotline Bling - Drake Cover Art

Only simps listen to this song. I can't believe I used to be one of them.

This song is very annoying and overplayed. I don't really care for Drake but this is him at his worst.

Overrated. I would never recommend this ever!

I liked this at first then it shrunk on me

9 Love Yourself - Justin Bieber Love Yourself - Justin Bieber Cover Art

This should be in the top 5

10 All About That Bass - Meghan Trainor All About That Bass - Meghan Trainor Cover Art

I rather listen to Shake It Off than this trashy song.

Truly awful and distasteful.

This is played so many times and is getting really annoying!

SO OVERPLAYED, but at least it wasn't played as much when 2015 came along, kind of.

The Contenders

11 Boom Boom Pow - The Black Eyed Peas Boom Boom Pow - The Black Eyed Peas Cover Art

I heard this song, but I never knew until now it from the black eyed peas

GREAT SONG but best version is the David Guetta remix and not overplayed

Not doubt, this song is overplay.It always top the radio chart in almost everyday.

Nowhere near as overplayed as I Got a Feeling.

12 Happy - Pharrell Williams Happy - Pharrell Williams Cover Art

I feel like people only know Pharrell because of his hat.

My dad and I would listen too this song everyday on the radio. I liked it for a while, but then it started playing every 30 minutes on every single radio station. So annoying!

This song sucked and my friends forced me to listen to it because they knew how much I hated it.

How is this not number one...

13 Someone You Loved - Lewis Capaldi Someone You Loved - Lewis Capaldi Cover Art

I'm truly fed up of this song.

The worst song of 2019, how did this get played on the radio?

14 Come As You Are - Nirvana Come As You Are - Nirvana Cover Art

Now a days this song never gets played on radio

Personally my favorite Nirvana song. I hear this on the radio often, but hey, at least it’s not the most overplayed song by them, Smells Like Teen Spirit

Come as you are is not overplayed, now a days, this song is not played almost, but SLTS is very overrated and overplayed

At least it's good. I never heard it on the radio though.

15 In My Feelings - Drake In My Feelings - Drake Cover Art

I can't go anywhere without hearing this awful garbage. Today I heard this song TWICE in like 10 minutes (luckily Bad At Love was playing on another station the second time), and I also heard this 3 times the other day. How is this #1 on the Hot 100, when I can think of songs that didn't hit #1 this year that are much more deserving of that spot?

I was in the car yesterday, and this song came on, so then I shouted "NO" and then changed the station, and THE SAME CRAPPY SONG WAS ON THE OTHER STATION! This song then came on twice on the way home. Top 10 material

I don't love keke

Hey drake, I hate keke!

16 Let It Go - Frozen Let It Go - Frozen Cover Art

This has got to be #1! Almost every girl knows this and won't shut up about it.

I hated this song from the minute I first heard it.

Frozen had an excessive amount of hype in general, but this song was the most overplayed one that there was! I swear, 2 years after this song was released and was popular, the little ones were still singing it! For Pete’s sake, pick a different song! There are more songs on the soundtrack! The storyline of the movie is decent, but every time I watch it, I will fast-forward through this crap song! The radio didn’t play it that much, but there were many people who busted my chops with their obsession! It was definitely overrated!

It was fine for the 1st 11 times, but now it's just getting way overplayed.

17 Party Rock Anthem - Lmfao Party Rock Anthem - Lmfao Cover Art

This song used to be decent. Now it's dead

Now it's played once or twice every 5 monthes

Got old fast

18 Fight for Your Right - The Beastie Boys Fight for Your Right - The Beastie Boys Cover Art

I don't hear it much

People do know the beastie boys hate this song and it's to make fun of people who like it

I'm a huge beastie boys fan but this is a bad song and it is making fun of the people that like it. It is meant to be bad not a classic hit of the 80s.

Not even on the radio.

19 What About Us - P!NK What About Us - P!NK Cover Art

Definitely her most overplayed hit. I thought it was decent at first, until the radio had to milk this song! However, P! nk’s music is normally good. But her earlier hits are better.

I didn't mind this song at first. But then, for 10 months, it was ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE. I couldn't go anywhere without hearing this song at least twice, sometimes even 4 times! What's so great about it? The chorus is one of the whiniest I've heard in a long time! And I always get the ear worm from this song. Not to mention it has played in many public places too. All this in one word: WHY?

I would have said I was OK with this song back in August/September/October of last year, but on November 16, this song came on 4 different stations in under 20 minutes, and by the time December rolled around, it had started to wear out its welcome for me. After I still kept hearing it three times every outing, I then went through a whole phase of really hating this song, but now I don't really care anymore.

I heard this twice tonight (written September 29, 2018). This should be in the top 3

20 Meant to Be - Bebe Rexha Meant to Be - Bebe Rexha Cover Art
21 Despacito - Luis Fonsi Despacito - Luis Fonsi Cover Art

At first I was like yeah whatever about this song but now the times have changed. It gets played almost every ten minutes. When I hear that stupid guitar start up I slam the power off button on the stereo.

This is getting so old. I didn't mind it the first few times, but now it's super annoying! It makes me super mad that people like this garbage and don't even give Japanese music a chance.

This song was huge for only a few months and then died off, so I think this should stay around where it is now. What About Us was constantly played for much longer than that.

This song haunts me. It's so overplayed, that I swear it's the Samara Gordon of car radios!

22 Anaconda - Nicki Minaj Anaconda - Nicki Minaj Cover Art

Judging by the amount of cussing and innuendo, I don't think any radio stations would ever play this song.

I've NEVER heard this song on the radio, but I have listened to it by choice. I actually don't mind it, but the lyrics are VERY sexual...

Never hear it on the radio, but I DESPISE this song

This song is very overrated and super annoying. Cube 93 played the hell out of it.

23 Radioactive - Imagine Dragons Radioactive - Imagine Dragons Cover Art

Overplayed but still amazing!

So much better than their new stuff even if it is overplayed

Imagine Dragons is a good but overrated band.

I hear Thunder more then this.

24 Body Like a Back Road - Sam Hunt Body Like a Back Road - Sam Hunt Cover Art

This was the original Old Town Road. It was like trying to combine Pop with Country and nobody asked for it

How is this piece of garbage not number 1? The lyrics are so corny, and the beat sounds like a leftover DJ Mustard beat with some country added in.

Ew, stupid song alert

25 Shake It Off - Taylor Swift Shake It Off - Taylor Swift Cover Art

Just like all of her pop songs

Way Overplayed!

Nothing needs to be said!

This song kinda sucks, I heard it a few times
