Top 10 Most Overplayed Songs of 2022

The Top Ten
1 Heat Waves - Glass Animals

Very boring, repetitive, stale "rock" track. The way he says "you" in the chorus is very grating. How was this #1 again? Probably one of the worst hit songs this year, made even worse by the fact that my local alt-rock station plays this at least once an hour.

When I listened to this on Spotify, I don't even get it. I don't find it catchy or interesting, it's just a bland radio tune. I've heard from Fantano who also doesn't like this saying that they're attempting the Kid A of their discography, but this and Radiohead have no relation at all.

I always hear this crap everywhere. Only reason it's heard is because it's friendly as background music for restaurants etc which makes it recommmended on Spotify

My god. I always hear it on tiktok. It is not awful but it sounds annoying if I hear it everyday. Overrated and overplayed as hell.

2 As It Was - Harry Styles

This was #1 for 16 weeks. 16. WEEKS. It's just an average song, but every time I turn on the radio, it seems to be on every station. Harry Styles is overrated, and this song is proof why. I don't hate this song, but the overplay makes me want to.

This song was overplayed on so many radio stations! And it somehow became popular on TikTok, but it's not the worst song of 2022 though.

Not that bad, used to be my favourite song, but hear it so much that it's getting annoying.

This song is overplayed but somehow I never get tired of it.

3 Bad Habits - Ed Sheeran

My local pop radio station refuses to stop playing this song, this song was alright when I first heard it. But as I heard the song play more and more, it started to get old. I do not know why pop stations like mine play this song like 10x a day, but this song sucks. I think it's worse than shape of you.

Ed Sheeran always made annoying and generic music. His music sounds generic. And this song is one of the worst. It sounds like your typical dance pop song. It's always the same. Perfect and Thinking out loud sounds mediocre but this is no. I can't decide if it or Shape Of You are the worst.

It was good when I first heard it, but after I listened to it a bunch of times, it started to sound bad.

Repeating this song over and over has become a bad habit. Also, I hate Ed Sheeran

4 Abcdefu - Gayle

What a crappy and immature song. Anthem of certain gacha tubers, whiner compared to others. I'd be happy if that little girl from sesame street replaced "u" with "cookie monster (laughing)"

This pseudopunk song always hears all over. It is far from rock. She sounds like Olivia Rodrigo who trying to be edgy. But it fail. This song is generic and annoying.

I just knew that this is going to be on here. Anyways, this got really popular in Spotify for some reason.

5 STAY - The Kid LAROI & Justin Bieber
6 Running Up that Hill - Kate Bush

This should be #1 by a long way. It's been overplayed on my radio ever since Stranger Things season 4 came out and rose to fame. In my opinion it's already a crap song without the ridiculous overplay.

The worst part about this one is that no matter which radio stations you listen to (be it the nostalgia stations, or the modern hits), it plays on all of them. You literally cannot escape this song.
It's a good song, but after the tenth time, you get sick of it.

I first listened to this song during lockdown and I liked it, even though I like Wuthering Heights better. But... yes, you get the picture.

This song blew up and is topping the charts because of Stranger Things. It's good but so ridiculously overplayed, especially on sites like Tiktok. I've also heard it quite a bit on my local radio stations. I think the Placebo version is a lot better.

7 Sunroof - Nicky Youre & Dazy
8 Shivers - Ed Sheeran
9 Enemy - Imagine Dragons
10 Thats What I Want - Lil Nas X

I kinda like it, but it has been played dozens of times. I think this song is pretty catchy though, and normally I don't really like rap music

The Contenders
11 First Class - Jack Harlow
12 Levitating - Dua Lipa
13 Cold Heart - Elton John & Dua Lipa

I swear to god this is the most overplayed song ever. And can we talk about how it's practically impossible to understand any word Elton John sings in this entire song?

This song uses 4 Elton John songs mashed into one. Check out David Bennett Piano's vid on this, it's very interesting. It's a good song but was overplayed.

14 Ghost - Justin Bieber
15 I’m Good (Blue) - David Guetta & Bebe Rexha

Why is this song still relevant? It's just a lazy EDM song with a very cheap sample of "Blue" by Eiffel 65, which was a decent one-hit wonder from the 90's, but of course, David Guetta had to team up with Bebe Rexha for this lazy, cheap, poor-quality mess of a song.
To be honest, I don't mind David Guetta, but in my opinion I just don't think Bebe Rexha is a good artist and it shows here that she's being cheap again, at least in "Meant To Be" it doesn't sound too cheap, but here it's like they're not even trying, this has got to be one of the laziest songs that ever played on the radio this year.

I can't believe that this outdated song became a hit in 2022. In addition, it has a lazy, all-over-the-place sample of "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" that cannibalizes the entire song, and Bebe Rexha sounds deep-sleep bored.

It's just a basic song with a lazy sample of "I'm Blue" by Eiffel 65.

16 Industry Baby - Lil Nas X & Jack Harlow

Another one I would love if it weren't for the fact that this were played at every single party/campus event/sports game I attend.

The original version of this song doesn't sound right to me because I'm used to the sped up version that's used in slander memes.

17 Woman - Doja Cat
18 Unholy - Sam Smith & Kim Petras

Oh. My. God. (no pun intended). Just heard this for the first time and it is AWFUL. I like both of these artists, but this is the best they could come up with? Grating synth, repetitive lyrics, and a poor attempt at emulating hyper-pop overall. Skip this song - almost as bad as Soul Train or Dance Monkey.

19 Easy on Me - Adele
20 Good 4 U - Olivia Rodrigo
21 Bam Bam - Camila Cabello

This song is good but it's overplayed to death on the radio.

22 The Motto - Tiësto & Ava Max

This song is so annoying it just makes me wish Tiësto would fade into obscurity.

23 Sweetest Pie - Megan Thee Stallion & Dua Lipa

It came out not too long ago and it's already so overplayed!

24 Light Switch - Charlie Puth
25 Don’t You Worry - Black Eyed Peas, Shakira & David Guetta

This song is so annoying and AutoTuned to death and radio stations can't get enough of it where I live. I also want to pour bleach into my ears every time I hear that annoying synth loop at the chorus.
