Top Ten Most Overplayed Songs


The Top Ten

1 Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson

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. - DaisyandRosalina

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

How is this overplayed? I have only heard of it once! - micahisthebest

Its only number 1 because people vote just to say it shouldn't be on the list

2 Hello - Adele

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 - AlphaQ

Am I the only one that is shocked by the fact that Enter Sandman isn't on this list?

€Says the moron that only hates it because of over-saturation.”
Oh, really? Says the moron who hates metalheads on the site because there’s too many of them. This song is not amazing. It’s just another lame, boring breakup song. Why are you just going around being a jerk to people who don’t like this song? I could do the same thing to people who don’t like Empire Of The Clouds by Iron Maiden, but I don’t. You also said on one occasion “This song is amazing, this is why I’m sick of metalheads on here”. As I’ve already said, even if the fans of your music dominated the site, I wouldn’t care because there’d still be fellow rock and metal fans. It’s also #1 on the best songs of 2015 list, so you just need to stop. Seriously.

3 Trap Queen - Fetty Wap

Even once is overplayed, arrgh.

I LOVE THIS SONG! - pepeagrees1

4 Boom Boom Pow - The Black Eyed Peas

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

Not doubt, this song is overplay.It always top the radio chart in almost everyday. - BeaM456

5 Come As You Are - Nirvana

Now a days this song never gets played on radio

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

6 All About That Bass - Meghan Trainor

I rather listen to Shake It Off than this trashy song. - BeaM456

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

Truly awful and distasteful.

Horrible - VideoGamefan5

7 Fight for Your Right - The Beastie Boys

I don't hear it much

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.

8 Hotline Bling - Drake

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! - SamKoffsky

love him

9 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran

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 - VideoGamefan5

That moment when the Bart Baker parody is actually one of the only GOOD things about the song that it happens to be making fun of - xandermartin98

This song is worse than the song Friday.

10 Radioactive - Imagine Dragons

Overplayed but still amazing!

It is overplayed but it still is a great song! - micahisthebest

Never, ever overplayed you guys are crazy I hear it like, once a month

Yeah nowadays, travel back to 2013 and 2014 when it was in every single store, trailer, movie, and playing on 1000 different radio stations. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

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

The Contenders

11 Let It Go - Frozen

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

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

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

12 Watch Me - Silento

This song is just dumb. First of all, Silento should be sued. He said WATCH ME YUUU what ME SUPAMAN what ME YUUU what ME SUPAMAN! Watch me Yu is from Crank That by Souja Boy. Second, what kind of name is Silento? Silento definitely ISN'T SILENT! They call him a "rapper" but rap music isn't as disgraceful as THIS PURE GARBAGE. And that's really saying something, because listening to most of today's rap is equivalent to eating trash straight from a dumpster. This overrated song is moronic, monotonous and repetitive. If you like this song, than die a slow painful death and burn in Hellfire for all eternity. Seriously, I would rather hear Donald Trump and Osama Bin Laden sing a duet than hear this. I bet a billion dollars that the CD for this song was handcrafted and shipped straight from the most fiery depths of Hell. At least this song is rarely on the radio these days, but nevertheless it is stil rape for my eardrums.

I don't understand what's so great about this song. - NightmareIsHere_

I couldn't go anywhere without hearing this awful piece of garbage - christangrant

This song has been overplayed to the max.

It's not as bad as Pretty Boy Swag - SoldierOfFortune

14 Anaconda - Nicki Minaj

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

Nicki minaj's music is just as cheap as she is. She's nothing but a sellout with trashy beats and lazy lyrics. Along with her ghetto fabulous jibberish.

Never heard it on the radio - TopTenListmaker

Cause this songs dead. The music video is even worse but the song itself is pretty bad - AlphaQ

15 Shake It Off - Taylor Swift

Just like all of her pop songs

Nothing needs to be said!

Way Overplayed!

This song is THE definition of overplayed. I’m OVER it. - railfan99

16 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen

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.

17 Fancy - Iggy Azalea

A fake as wannabe rapper spitting fruity lyrics into the mic thinking she the next big thing.

18 Party Rock Anthem - Lmfao

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

Now it's played once or twice every 5 monthes - TopTenListmaker

Got old fast - SamKoffsky

19 Bad Blood - Taylor Swift

Stop the awful sound and repetitiveness. Glad there's a knob on my radio. So as to change the station.

20 7 Years - Lukas Graham
