Top 10 Worst Albums of 2022

Here are the most horrendous album releases in the year 2022.

NOTE: Do not add any releases that have not come out yet. Wait until the release date.
The Top Ten
1 Mamaru - RuPaul

I didn't think the drag queen RuPaul would release such an atrocious album.
It's just a mess that insults straight and LGBTQ+ people's tastes in music and ruins the quality of hyperpop, making it sound even worse.
Plus, it sounds like he's trying to do some tricks to brainwash listeners into his schemes like whatever he came up with.
The melodies (if there are any) are just an annoying mess and make you want to change the station first thing.
Worst album by RuPaul because it sucks bows.

Seriously like knives to the ears.

2 DS4Ever - Gunna

Another awful auto-tuned Southern rapper. How did this along with Encanto even beat Dawn FM by The Weeknd to peak at number 1 on the Billboard 200 in the first place.

3 Country Stuff the Album - Walker Hayes

Just some stupid redneck music about getting drunk.

4 Bad Reputation - Kid Rock

That album is definitely the strongest contender for worst album of the year so far. All of the songs are so annoying and clichéd they sound like parodies or some drunken boomer at a bar ranting about how the modern world, millennials or Covid-19 measures suck and how life was better before over a backing band playing covers of Bob Seger, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Aerosmith, Rod Stewart or Trace Adkins. In other words, that album is basically unlikable and will sure make Kid Rock go from icon to laughing stock. And besides, not only did it not get a critic score on Album of the Year , but it bombed extremely hard on the Billboard 200 (#128). Considering his previous albums have all charted within the top 10 (since 1998's Devil Without a Cause), it's a gigantic disappointment and shows how Kid Rock ridiculed himself by declaring himself "uncancelable". Karma definitely hit Kid Rock... very hard!

5 Iridesense - BigBabyGucci

Wow, how many rappers with the name "Baby" are there? Only heard of Lil Baby and DaBaby.

6 Ethereal - $not

Another bland and unfocused album by a rapper who blatantly lacks personality.

7 Mainstream Sellout - Machine Gun Kelly

Tickets to My Downfall was pretty fresh-sounding, but this new album by MGK is very tame in comparison and relies on every pop-punk cliché in the book. This pop-punk revival fad could die out as fast as it came.

8 Colors - YoungBoy Never Broke Again
9 2 Alivë - Yeat
10 Cowboy Tears - Oliver Tree

Oliver Tree's first album was good, but this new album is really disappointing. The production borrows too much on 90s nostalgia, which makes most songs sound outdated, and Oliver Tree's vocals are too one-dimensional and try too hard to sound quirky.

The Newcomers

? Born Pink - Blackpink
? Mercury Act 2 - Imagine Dragons

It seems like Imagine Dragons is getting worse and worse overtime. I don't 100% hate ID, but w lot of their songs can be very hard to like, and the only one I like off of here is Sharks. Blur just has an annoying trap beat and some of the songs like Waves sounds like an AJR ripoff. And at the end we have some pretty boring piano ballads.

The Contenders
11 Me vs. Me - NLE Choppa
12 Diabolical - Destruction
13 Hate Über Alles - Kreator
14 Honestly Nevermind - Drake

You thought CLB was a bad album? Think again! Not only Drake managed to make his worst album yet, but the fact that it's a surprise album feels appalling. I have no words to describe how boring this album is. While CLB had its highlights, that album has little to no highlights ("Sticky" and "Massive" are still nice songs though). Instead, it is packed with half-baked deep house beats, Weeknd ripoffs, obnoxious AutoTuned falsetto vocals and Drake sounding whiny and deep-sleep bored. I was hoping for a strong comeback by Drake, but instead he gave us this snoozefest. Everything Dreezy needs is a well-deserved break in my opinion.

This album's so boring and trash. Logic's Vinyl Days is better (they were released the same day).

15 On to Better Things - Iann Dior
16 Transparency - Twin Atlantic
17 You're It - Gupi
18 God Did - DJ Khaled

As always, it's DJ Khaled making DJ Khaled with the same old artists and the same old ad-libs. As one of his hit songs says, "no new friends". There may be a few okay songs here and there but overall, nothing changes, there's a lack of hits and I think DJ Parody Khaled should just fade into irrelevancy for good.

19 Pink is Better - Token
20 Will of the People - Muse

I was very skeptical about the album considering the contrasted quality of each song that came before, and all I can say is that this album is disappointing. Muse's music has always been over the top most of the time, but now they sound like they've become parodies of themselves. Not only are the lyrics clichéd and desperately edgy or melodramatic, but the band's Queen pastiches are more annoying than ever, the Marilyn Manson ripoff in the title track is cringe-inducing and tone-deaf (did they not hear about the allegations against Manson?) and the production is mostly overblown. If you thought Simulation Theory was their worst album, then you were probably wrong.

21 Trendsetter - Coi Leray
22 Breezy - Chris Brown

I haven't even listened to that album but it doesn't even have a critic score on Album of the Year, which is a clear sign it's going to suck.

23 So Far So Good - The Chainsmokers
24 Freedom - Journey
25 Hood Guy, In! - Yung Lambo
