Top 10 Most Annoying Things to Hear in a SongCommon things that are annoying to hear in a song. That can either ruin the song or make it obnoxious. If you think that I missed one feel free to add it.
This genuinely does annoy me.
Rappers do this all the time. Even pop singers swear in their songs. Especially the female pop singers. Male pop singers do that too but not as much.
I have no problem with swearing but when it's done too much in a song it gets annoying. I can tolerate a mild F- bomb maybe one use of the S- bomb but when it's like 55 f-bombs then it gets really old. Same thing with the overusage of the N- word in Rap songs. It gets annoying when it's repeated 5000 times or less.
This is one of the reasons why I hate rap. There's just so much cussing. Also, their obsession with saying the "n word" dozens of times per song is ridiculous.
Jessica Simpson's the example of sexy voice singing, like she's trying very hard to sound as sexy as possible, an example is her version of a Christmas song "Oh Holy Night" which to me is the worst version that I ever heard & I find it so offensive to hear it song that way, sorry to her fans. There are other sexy voice singers as well including imitators. If they're going to sing sexy then dress sexy, that way it'll match.
A lot of female singers do this. It can be annoying. Even male singers do this too.
Depends on what genre and singer you're listening to...
Maybe it was added as a troll item but actually there are songs with fart sounds in them. Check out the list:
Top 10 Songs Featuring Fart Sounds
Reminds me of that crappy TTG! episode where the Titans fart in Control Freak's face in a rhythmic way. Kill me.
A lot of rap songs have this. Some pop songs do too. One song that has better clapping is "Carousel" by Lauren Taylor.
When an artist uses autotune, I almost always lose my respect for them. If you are going to make music you should at least TRY to sing. I appreciate artists more who have a horrible singing voice than ones that don't even try because that way I know they are trying. Either way, autotune sounds horrible, and if your going to use it, use it for a voice effect, not because your too shy to sing.
I just don't like auto tune in the slightest. If a singer cannot sing without it, then maybe they shouldn't try singing at all or even have a music career in my book.
Depends on how it is used really. Some singers use just enough autotune, but too much of it mostly ruins the song.
Examples are Mariah Carey, Christina Aquilera, Ariana Grande, plus lots more female singers, including imitators sounding like someone put an ice pack down their backs. A lot of the metal singing men also sing very laud high pitched screams, to me they're the most annoying of all, as they sound like someone squeezed their nuts, like they're in extreme pain. To me that's not singing that just annoying screaming high pitched notes or whining, it's no wonder they loose their voice after a while.
This is the reason I can't hear Ariana Grande songs. She has made some good songs but those screamed high notes give me Headache. Normal high notes aren't the problem, singers that try to sing higher than they are able to without starting screaming are the Problem. I don't sing myself but doesn't that hurt your Voice?
When a singer sings too high to the point they're screaming unintentionally. Some examples include: Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato. But I guess this can be considered similar to whiny vocals.
I don't mind talking but when it's done before a song starts and is featured in the track audio that is annoying.
I would agree with that, in general. But there are exceptions where I like talking.
A lot of rap songs are like this. It's just talking along to a beat.
I'm not a big fan of hearing someone laugh in a song. For me it's completely pointless and adds nothing to the song.
Sometimes electronic noises can be done well in music other times they're done so bad that it hurts your damn ears.
A lot of songs like this have the same generic drumbeat.
Most of them annoy me. So I somewhat agree.
Noel Gallagher is guilty of this. Big time.
Rock music can sometimes be guilty of this cliché and it comes off as lazy if you literally reuse a verse just to have three verses.
Sometimes, it happens when you least expect it.
There's an actual term for it you know. It's called the millennial whoop
Lots of pop songs suffer from this cliche.
This is similar to Auto Tune but different in terms of how it makes a song sound. Personally I think that layered vocals are just as annoying as auto tune.
What's so bad about this? Layered vocals have been a thing since the 60s and there's nothing necessarily annoying about it.
This doesn't really annoy me either. Once again it really depends on the singer's voice I guess.
Low pitched vocals are good either.
With vocal effect.
You hear this in a lot of pop songs.
I wanted this part specified although this is often the reason that vocals sound "whiny". Shawn Mendes especially in his early songs is an example of this.
Unless it's a sad song then I guess it's understandable but I feel like I'm the only one that finds it annoying when people hum.
