Worst Songs of 2017

The Top Ten
1 It's Everyday Bro - Jake Paul

It's not everyday, bro! Pink Floyd and the other legends are leagues better than this trash! Hey Jake Paulers! You can moan and groan all you want, but Jake Paul got fired from Disney because reports proved that he was not being a thoughtful LA neighbor as a result of his outlandish pranks! Jake Paul received backlash from many people due to his many legal issues that transpired! He's a toxic influence because not only do his songs advocate for egoistic behavior, but Jake Paul has little to zero respect for anyone but himself! This song was made only so that he can benefit off his career as a rapper. However, it mainly got negative reviews from people due to all the excessive curse words and disrespectful pride it contained. If you Jake Paulers think this song is good, think again and listen to the more lively songs by Pink Floyd, Queen, Lynyrd Skynyrd or any other epic band!

2 Gucci Gang - Lil' Pump

Gucci Gang, It's Everyday Bro, Bodak Yellow, Gummo, Mo Bounce, Juju on That Beat are terrible but most songs on here aren't that bad as you think because there aren't obnoxious vocals that are bad as Yung Oogway or ppcocaine. I think the worst songs of 2023 and 2024 list having even worse songs that are way worse than most songs on here because of ppcocaine and Yung Oogway.

Last year, there were this boy band alliance thingy called Gucci Gang. They were always playing this song during break times. ALWAYS. And let me tell you what my first reaction was when I first heard it.
"What the actual hex? "
There was this one time when I was so curious about why they love that song so much. Since I myself come to love songs mainly by its lyrics, I checked out this song. I was grossed out. Really grossed out. The lyrics are CRINGY, as if the artist just effortlessly slammed a bunch of nonsense in his song and started rapping it talentlessly.
This song is unforgettable, in a bad way. It had affected my insights on Gucci, the brand itself, and it will always be one of the reasons why I don't like pure rap.

3 Drinkin' Too Much - Sam Hunt

I have not heard of half of the songs in those list and judging by the listening samples they don't sound all too bad either, just... not memorable. There are a few trap songs on here, which is weird for me because in German speaking countries rap is kind of hailed as the savior of hip hop's true soul right now, because trap rappers care much about the flow and melody and less about multisyllabic rhymes.
Overall, most of these songs sound generic more than bad. And who are Sam Hunt, or Zay Hilfigerrr, Kodak Black and Jacob Sartorius? And why do they get that much hate?

Sam Hunt's method of apologizing to his wife:

1. Making his song boring and emotionless.
2. Confusing the crap out of both himself and his ex-wife by lacking the ability to figure out who was hurt in the relationship.
3. Letting her know, while she's pissed off at him, that he stalked her.

Sam Hunt is quite possibly the worst country singer I've ever listened to.

4 Body Like a Back Road - Sam Hunt

I honestly don't care enough about this song to be angry about it. It truly is one of the worst songs of the decade, but it's so bland and cliche there's no point in giving it attention. That will only cause it to become more popular.

Two words. Very annoying. I am surprised this deadbeat even got 50 dollars for making this dumb song. My step mom loves it but I don't. This song has been old for a while and I know someone agrees with me.

If a man compared my body to a back road, they would ensure the swift end to the relationship. The song is poorly written and quite honestly I am glad probably won't be a hit in Australia

5 Bon Appetit - Katy Perry

Ughhh! This song is so gross. It sounds like a female counterpart of "Blurred Lines", where the narrator accepts men's sexism and just gets "spread like a buffet" to attract men's attention, assuming she's "all they want". This is the kind of song that will only exacerbate men's sexism. While "Blurred Lines" could be saved by its catchy melody and infectious rhythm, "Bon App├ętit" doesn't have any redeeming qualities that will make you forget about the terrible message behind the lyrics. Sorry Katy but you should know better than making disgusting songs like those.

Katy Perry's worst song and album. What happened to her 2008 days when she used to make some pop rock songs in One Of The Boys? I cannot believe the same singer who made a good song like Fingerprints made this sexual trash, I wish Katy can go back into making music like that instead. She turned worse and went all bubblegum. Boring song, terrible beat, Migos did a terrible job in rapping, bad lyrics and horrendous video, one of the worst to go with it.

6 Gummo - 6ix9ine

Put this song at #1, this song is abysmal. At least Gucci Gang was annoyingly catchy, this song has literally nothing good about it. 6ix9ine sounds like he's doing drugs while having extreme constipation and while getting his dick shot off by a rifle.

This peaked at number 12! He is convicted for use of a child in a sexual performance. How have we descended this far? We must not allow this mindset to reach the courts, police, and government.

Hey, this is still at the top of the "Worst Songs of 2018" list, can we get this to the top of this list too?

Imagine if we could, after all it is from September 2017.

7 Bingo - Jacob Sartorius

I didn't want to say anything awful. He was a victim of bullying and saying anything harsh would be awful, but you should never use sympathy to make yourself "likeable". Sympathy is a like a bandage, but the scars that we got from his music are like bullet wounds! This song sucks, and so has his other songs in the past, present, and future. If you're ever going to be more likable, Jacob, then stop doing this. You are only going to get more hate doing this career. Pretty soon, you will end up like Justin Bieber. And NO ONE, I mean NO ONE, wants to be like Justin Bieber. So, please. Give us mercy from our ears. Stop. NOW.

I don't mean to say anything to mean because the kid already has to much hate already, but this song is definitely not a song that I would blast in my car when it comes on the radio. Plus, the chorus sound exactly like the nursery rhyme "Are You Sleeping Brother John". Seriously Jacob, you should al least try to make music that sounds good. Honestly I don't like anything about this song. When he says "lips like Kylie" I was like, "Boy what you know about Kylie Jenner, she is so out of your league. Seriously, he is a Justin Beiber wannabe. That's the truth.

8 Look What You Made Me Do - Taylor Swift

Where do I even begin? I miss songs like Bad Blood, You Belong With Me, and Love Story. Everything was fine with Taylor Swift up until reputation when she started to rap for some reason. In the end, this song sounds like she's trying to rap, but can't so she screams the chorus in an "edgy" manner. The chorus is carp, she sounds like a wannabe edgy gangster. The only good part of the song is the pre chorus where she actually SINGS and does not sound like a wannabe edgy gangster. And this song is SOMEHOW going to stay at #1 for WEEKS, while keeping good songs like Havana and There's Nothing Holding Me Back away from the top spot. Another Taylor Swift rap song, "Ready For It? " is #1 on iTunes and looks like it's gonna be another top spot hogger!

9 Mo Bounce - Iggy Azalea

Digital Distortion is no longer a thing due to Iggy leaving Def Jam Recordings. Thank God for that! However, this is going to be part of a new album called Surviving the Summer, which will suck.

What the hell is it on the list for? It pretty good for an Iggy song and one of the best hip hop songs this year. It has a lot of BASS in it.

Iggy Azalea, do we have to talk about what happened last time with Fancy in 2014, when big ass anthems were at their height in music? Because it was really bad

10 Salad Dressing - Borgore & Bella Thorne

Never mind Body Like a Back Road, Look What You Made Me Do and Thunder, this is the WORST song of 2017, this is barely what you could even call a song it's that bad. The voice going "Sauce on the salad or the sauce on the side" is absolutely creepy and whoever did the computer based noises for the instrumentation should be sacked immediately. This is not music, it's an excuse for a lot of stupid noise.

Bon Appetit is less painful than this, and that isn't exactly a masterpiece either. At least the chorus there isn't literally the same thing over and over again, less autotune, and actual singing (even if it's bad). Same cannot be said about this.

Moral review
This song is so bad I'd rather hear someone vomiting than tis. Oh wait this song CAUSES VOMITING. Well I hate being a curious and interested human now thanks to this. I had nightmares. I wouldn't reccomend this song to anyone you care about. Let your enemy hear. Someone being a fake friend? Just torture them with this! And the music video. Oh god that music video. Overall -100000000000000/10. And bella thorne is now the most hated disney star. I hated her before now I hate her MORE.

The Contenders
11 Tunnel Vision - Kodak Black

He sounds like a Jamaican muppet and the lyrics are boring as hell, like the one's you'd find in any song that's only popular form streaming. This is the "Panda" of 2017 and from the way things are going, it's probably heading straight for #1. Other than the admittedly good flutes that hide behind the generic trap beats, this gets a 1/10.

Okay, maybe the beat isn't completely terrible, but it's pretty boring. Even if you look past the lyrics, which are some of the worst things I've heard in that musically awful year, I still can't have a single bit of interest in this song. Good lord, those vocals are so annoying, he sounds like a gremlin trying to take a crap and autotuning it. It's as bad as it looks. -5/5

Oh gosh, I never even heard this song until DCfnaf showed me this song. It is one of the worst songs ever. Out of tune beat, disgusting, effortless lyrics, and terrible and boring vocals, this song belongs in the genre low quality trash, which is a genre I made up for all the worst songs ever.

12 Happy Ending - Hopsin

@NiktheWiz and WonkeyDude98

There's an even worse lyric than the sucky sucky lyric. Read this: "I'm buildin' a sweat, I'm killin' it yes/I pulled out and spilled on her breast"

Good God. And yeah, this is worse than Fack. At least Fack could be considered a JOKE and didn't have terribly imitated Asian Accents. This is also racist because apparently "All Asian woman speak bad English". KILL THIS. -5/5

I can't help but feel like if this was released by Migos or Rae Sremmurd or Lil Uzi Vert or whoever, the people who are defending this song by saying "He's having fun" would just start hating it like everyone else.

13 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran

Wow, this song is a complete abomination. Now I'm not a big Sheeran fan, but at least some of his music is at least listenable (I really like Bloodstream though). However for this song, I cannot say the same thing. This is by far the worst ES song I've ever heard in my life. And most of friends like it. But it makes me cringe so much. I hate it to death. The only decent thing about it is Ed's voice. Everything else is just atrocious. I hate the beat, I hate the melody and I especially hate the lyrics. They're annoying, they're overplayed, and they're just lazy. I thought Ed had more class than this. I would expect this more from someone like Charlie Puth, not Ed Sheeran. He can do so much better than this - and this is coming from someone who doesn't like Ed Sheeran's music as much everyone else. This should be ranked higher than number 11.

14 Strip that Down - Liam Payne

Oh dear Lord? What is this abomination? I see Liam Payne has decided to take the route of average aging adult male pop star releases a desperately controversial song all about sex in order to stay relevant to shock value. It didn't work with Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines, it didn't work with Jason Derulo's Talk Dirty, and it most CERTAINLY isn't working for Liam here. The lyrics are pathetically desperate and cringeworthy, not to mention they contain a hilarious slew of drug references. Liam's delivery is obnoxious and way to dependent on autotune, he sounds like a mule and Siri had a baby. Not to mention it had to feature Quavo from the already terrible insult to rap group known as Migos, who's delivery is also obnoxious. And what is up with that freaky talking voice in the post chorus? Oh and people are defending him saying that he's free now that he's not in 1D? Go listen to Niall's singles or Zayn's album or Harry's album, not this which is extremely cringeworthy and desperate. Awful. Ear-rape. Disgrace to what was once a great singer part of the amazing 1D. But don't worry Liam, I still have faith in you.

15 Swish Swish - Katy Perry

Can't Katy stop making trash already? Everyone loves Miley Cyrus' "Malibu" because Miley focused on the song, the lyrics (which she obviously wrote), and the pleasing and relaxing tone. Miley also seems so happy and sweet in the video and she now realizes she made a poor decision by being gross on stage. So why is Katy pulling this artificial act? At least Miley's songs were good in and out of her gross phase. 0/5

This being a petty response to "Bad Blood", something that happened 2 years ago, makes it more loathsome. Plus, she said that if Taylor stopped fighting, she'd stop. I don't think there is any other pop star in the industry right now that is more fake than Katy Perry (Nicki Minaj is in this song too so wow). Why'd you make this song if you want the stinking fighting to stop?

This song is pretty catchy but the lyrics was just bad especially that "big guy" voice in the beginning. Katy Perry was used to be good when "California Girls" and "Fireworks" gets popular but now it's suck especially of how songs are getting worst by now. But this one is pretty much I just heard from fashion shows, malls, etc.

16 Ohio Fried Chicken - Jake Paul

And I thought it couldn't get worse than Its Everyday Bro. Boy was I wrong. Dead wrong. At leasr Its Everyday Bro had some rap in it that made it more enjoyable. Plus he was using his ACTUAL VOICE in that song. In this he sounds like Bill Clinton choking on a banana and singing.

What the hell is this? This song almost sounds like a BOTDF song. The rapping sucks, thsi song gave me ear cancer. Please kill this with fire!

Jake says at the start that this song was made in 1 day.

Why is that a bragging point.

17 Juju on that Beat - Zay Hilfigerrr & Zayion McCall

This really should be at #1.

Look, there was absolutely no effort put into this whatsoever. The atrocious beat? It's not even theirs! They just stole it from Knuck If You Buck, an already awful song. And honestly, our performers are actually worse. I'm not even gonna remember their names because we'll never hear from them again, but they have literally not even a hint of talent. And, even for a freestyle, these lyrics might be the worst I heard in a song last year.

0/10 might even be too high. The fact that this was a Top 5 hit on Billboard baffles me.

This song sounds like a kid trying to be hip would make. This is like that stupid whip nae nae song where middle schoolers are going to enjoy it and nobody else will. What happen to the days of music when the music actually meant something. If I do not hear this song ever again I will be a happier person

How does anyone like this? The cover says "this is a challenge"! The title of the album is unfinished. It should say " This is a challenge to make fairly decent music". Or " We are MENTALLY challenged".

18 Young and Menace - Fall Out Boy

What the heck, Fall Out Boy? I grew up loving FOB and then they come out with this atrocity?! Is this really from the same guys that gave us From Under the Cork Tree and Infinty On High? It's an annoying EDM track and the weird voice vocoders make it even worse. Not to mention pretty much the whole album (except for "The Last Of The Real Ones" which is the only decent song on Mania in my opinion) is a disaster. It's super sad to see a band I grew up loving release something super atrocious.

"Turn It Off! " -Lovefrombadlands, December 20th 2017 the day she first heard this bad song.

Let's take a moment to enjoy when lovefrombadlands could listen to music, so she could rate the songs.

Due to her ears breaking from hearing this song, Lovefrombadlands can no longer rate new songs, only ones she knew before that horrible day in history.

Dang. I love Fall Out Boy, but this is easily their worst song. The guys that made "Centuries", "Young Volcanoes", "Irresistible", "Immortals", and "Dance Dance" made...this? Come on! How can this amazing band be behind that earbleeding drop? I hope this won't be their new direction. 0/5

19 Jordans - Jacob Sartorius

Well what do you know. My least favorite non rap song is this. Not surprising that many people like/hate a song that compares girls to shoes.

Wait, why would people like this song?
*looks at number of likes of this song on YouTube*
Oh wow, people just did the impossible.
-1/5

How could you compare a girl to shoes? She's WAY MORE than that! Ladies, never date guys that compare you to mere objects that boys obsess over!

So us girls are mere accessories to make you look more flashy? Nice job, Sartorius. WELL DONE!

20 Mi Gente - J Balvin

Terrible song, if not, one of the worst ever to become a hit. The beat is basically a man screaming to some fast drum beat. Not another reggaeton hit song, please don't make this mainstream. This is one of the worst songs ever, it is meaningless, autotuned, and has a terrible beat. I knew J Balvin way before he was put in this list, and he is talentless, can't sing live, and overly autotunes his songs and writes bad lyrics.

This song's beat gets annoying pretty quick (it's a goat moaning in pain, as someone else here pointed out), and there's a real "so bad it's good" vibe here. This song is just like any other terrible mainstream pop song. Also, this already got 7,470,000 likes on YouTube and 1.37 BILLION views. Faith in humanity lowered.

21 Jerika - Jake Paul

Hm, what can I say? First off, the lyrics are corny. The girl sounds like every mainstream, plain pop singer, and Jake sounds like he made no effort during his part of the song.

This is one of the actual lyrics of the song: "Quavo you should take your mask off". You get what I mean. There are worse, dumber lyrics out there in this song but I think I proved my point.

I swear that he stole the production from lollipop by lil Wayne. Don't believe? Listen to them at the same time, if you think your ears can handle it.

22 That's What I Like - Bruno Mars

You know what kind of annoys me? How singers take such catchy sounding music and add to it with the worst possible lyrics ever. Songs like California Girls, Bang Bang. And then there's this song along with 24K Magic. I love how funky and dance-like 24k Magic sounds but NO. It's a song about how he's a dangerous man who has got a bunch of money in his pocket ready to blow. Entirely too much swearing (like I'm even surprised these days) and the part where he says, "We too fresh, gotta blame it on Jesus, #Blessed." And then there's THIS song. I'm just glad that Just The Way You Are, The Lazy Song and Grenade still plays. Listen to Ariana Grande's version of Grenade. It's so good. :)

23 Kid in a Candy Store - Jojo Siwa

I hate her! She is such a brat. She thinks she's all nice but she's actually really rude. This song is the worst peice of crap I have ever heard. I'd like to throw that ugly twerp into a black hole.

I've heard this a lot on Nick Music, and I know that even noise isn't the best description for this. A racket is the best description for this.

So annoying! Jojo Siwa is so childish. She needs to start acting mature and stop being so childish. You're sixteen, not five!

24 Privacy - Chris Brown

Oh Chris Brown, what were you thinking? I know he is an awful person but I still liked his music overall. But this is just terrible, thanks to awful lyrics, despite decent production. That line in the chorus "licking your private parts" just angers me and makes me facepalm in disgust every time I hear it due to how much I want to forget it but can't! Usually, bad lyrics can be ignored by good production. However, that is so not the case here, as the lyrics are so bad, it's virtually impossible to ignore them. Also, for the first time when he is rapping, he sounds like he has a cold! A contender for the worst song of 2017, -2/5! Chris Brown is better than this, but if he keeps this disgusting behavior up, then he should quit his music career.

I heard this song in my college gym the other day and I was like "What is campus security doing with this?". Still the sexual content was edited out but I just couldn't fathom how this could be played. Chris Brown needs to stop making songs that objectify women or make guys believe that it's okay to sexually assault a girl they're into. Better yet, Chris Brown should retire and get some proper treatment for his behavior issues.

25 Hit Em with the Draco - Soulja Boy

Is this a song about Draco Malfoy? I loved him in Harry Potter, great villain, however, a song about him? I hope they don't play this in a Harry Potter movie. Soulja Boy tries so hard to stay relevant, but everyone has forgot about him, nobody cared about him since 10 years ago, he is a one hit wonder.

This is a diss by Soulja Boy to both 50 Cent and Chris Brown. It features a very lackluster beat, terrible rhymes, and pathetic disses.

I pray to god Soulja wins, or he's going to be the laughingstock of hip-hop soon.

To clarify one thing, he's not talking about the Harry Potter character, he's talking about a Draco pistol. This song should also be at number one on this list as there is absolutely nothing good about it
