Top Ten Most Overplayed Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 What About Us - P!NK

The more overplayed lists this is on, the better. 70% of the time when I get in the car I hear this song at least twice. (Or at least, that was how it was a month ago when this song was at its peak) - allamassal

Sorry radio, but I am not going to live 50% of my life to a constant mental soundtrack of "What about us? What about all the times you said you had the answers? " Just no. - allamassal

Um... How is it that Smooth Criminal is #1 and this is #37? LOL! - allamassal

22 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.

23 Bad Blood - Taylor Swift

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

24 I'm Yours - Jason Mraz

This song came out in 2008. It's 2014 now and I still hear it on the radio. KILL IT WITH FIRE!

This song makes my ears bleed. Continuously overplayed on the radio.

Worst song ever! Makes Baby by Justin Bieber look like pure awesomeness!

I don't hear it at all nowadays, but I remember being like 12 in 2009 and hearing this song non-stop

25 7 Years - Lukas Graham
26 Love Story - Taylor Swift

Uuugh! Every time I hear a Taylor Swift song on the radio, I feel the need to stab my ear canal with a nail file. Please.. Make the pain stop..

This song drives me CRAZY!

At least it’s better than Look What You Made Me Do and Shake it Off. - railfan99


27 Gangnam Style - Psy

The fact that I had to add this song to the list says enough. - therootbeer

Severely overrated - SamKoffsky

28 Viva la Vida - Coldplay

Um, excuse me? Viva la Vida can not be overplayed. It is physically impossible. I could listen to Viva la Vida (any Coldplay song, really) a million times on repeat and not get sick of it. This song has a clever theme and a catchy beat. No wonder it's played a lot.

Whoever said this song is annoying, they're so wrong. Great beats, lyrics, almost matches Mr. Brightside.

Maybe it's overplayed but it's a good song.

30 Closer - The Chainsmokers

"Closer" by a mile. It will one day be the #1 most overplayed song in the history of music, rivaling even Happy Birthday in its omnipresence and endless loops of plays

So Smooth Criminal is number 1 and this is 29? LOL! - 445956

Another song I can't avoid. Ugh! - SamKoffsky

Once I heard this song FIVE times on the radio within a single hour.

That’s why I vote it up. - Lunala

31 I Don't Wanna Live Forever - Zayn & Taylor Swift

LOL, I Was Just Listening To The Radio, And These 2 Songs I Was Bashing Got Played - VideoGamefan5

Can this song just die already? Earned It from the previous movie didn't get played THIS much.

32 Roar - Katy Perry

YES YES YES. This is is terrible and I get so mad every time I hear this on the radio because it's the worst ever song by katy perry - Th3Zm0nst3r

Without the music video this song sucks.

Every time I turn my radio on this crappy annoying song is on.

Reminds me of that What About Us song that I just heard three times. - allamassal

The only thing I like is the music video. That's it. - SamKoffsky

33 Baby - Justin Bieber

I've heard this on so many radio and T.V. channels, my ears are aching. Bieber's either got them all bribed, or people have lost all sense of music, the song's so bad, that's because. God save us all from the Bieber epidemic.

Well, this song isn't played on the radio as much as it used to (talk about luck) - CommentandList

This isn't a song. It's a whiny kid spitting generic lyrics into a microphone. - therootbeer

This is the worse song ever that actually does try to be a good song

34 Despacito - Luis Fonsi

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. - Absolite

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

Okay, uh, Smooth Criminal is in #1, but in #34, WHY?!

They're still playing it in radio stations today!

35 Uma Thurman - Fall Out Boy

This song blows. who needs to sample "the Muensters? "

36 Happy - Pharrell Williams

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. - johntheaddictive

How is this not number one...

37 Worth It - Fifth Harmony

Over-played but still SO good and catchy!

38 That's What I Like - Bruno Mars

Top 10 material - VideoGamefan5

39 Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) - Beyonce

Beyonce's so old and probably should have ended her musical career centuries ago. I only appreciate her music being around when she was still in Destiny's child.

This was an overplayed song, I hear it at parties now and then. I wouldn't consider it overplayed anymore.

40 Hot 'N Cold - Katy Perry
