Top Ten Worst Songs of 2021

The Top Ten
1 Fake Woke - Tom Macdonald

If you want to listen to more of this poser-american clown's stuff, just know that all of this songs are like this and talk about the EXACT SAME STUFF.

All songs are bad, Tom MacDonald & everyone else. The politics are cringe, not that it matters, but even though I am considered "conservative" although I am a moderate libertarian, I cannot stand the cringe of his songs plus he is Canadian pretending to be American, pretends to be the real "woke" & a centrist, complains that he is oppressed because he's white the same way he says blacks complain about being oppressed, can't rap or produce & is just garbage & makes conservatives look bad

Up and New Truck were bad songs, but this song... takes it to a next level. Should be Top 3 at least maybe number 1. I'm surprised it got to Number 1 on the chart. Give Up credit for at least having a decent beat and being catchy. And New Truck actually isn't that bad to me either (At least, not as bad as other songs this year.) There's no good things about this song at all. I haven't heard any of this guys music, but this is not a good impression. Like I mentioned, should be higher.

The only ones who listen to this guy are 60-100 year old boomers who don't listen to rap and would call the cops on their neighbours for listening to it.

2 Hey Boy - Sia

Sia has fallen from grace, absolutely horribly. Not only is her new movie "Music" absolutely a trainwreck of a disgraceful movie along with Sia happening to be an abiest and forcing Maddie Ziegler to perform the role of the main protagonist in the film who happens to be on the autism spectrum, making the movie offensive to those who are autistic, but this song is just bad. Sia's voice is incredibly annoying and the lyrics are just childish. I wish Sia went back to making good music, rather than continuing to be someone who she didn't want to be in the past. Plus she is kind of becoming another Tones and I in my eyes.

Sia never sounded so annoying on this song. Overall, it sounds like something Tones and I would've made. I've been losing faith in Sia for a while now but this could be the death knell to her credibility.

Sia sounds like Tones and I. What happen to her? This is the prove that Sia start to go downhill.

Get this song above "Up" by Cardi B, which is pretty decent while "Hey Boy" clearly sucks.

3 Zaza - 6ix9ine

Can we get this song above "Up" by Cardi B? "Up" is actually pretty decent compared to this mindless pile of crap by Snitch9ine.

The fact that this guy still has fans just shows how stupid people are.

Why did 6ix9ine have to return with this atrocity?!

Why 6ix9ine still continues making noises?

4 Loco - Anitta

Yet another derivative Latin song with an overly repetitive chorus and butt shaking in the music video for the sole purpose of getting men turned on. It's so shameful to have to do this to make people watch a music video and it exacerbates men's sexism towards women.

Like it's just so sad to see such a childish girl trying to get men's attention like ew; I'm so concerned for her and why this song is needed like it's just why ? If don't get why she so stupid and feels she needs to get men's attention by shaking her butt it's just so ridiculous like whyyy this song is also literally TRASH.

Get this song above "Up" now! While the latter does the job right, "Loco" is just a failed attempt by this Brazilian singer to jump into the Latin bandwagon.

This is literally just Up except it's Spanish. (Coming from someone who can understand Spanish)

5 Am I the Only One - Aaron Lewis

Good god is this thing bad. Even after the fact that its borderline racist, the vocals just sound like a whine all the way through.

How can I best describe this song? You know those 'country songs' you get in 'South Park', which are made to be parodies of the typical patriotic Murican'? Yeah, Aaron Lewis is basically a living incarnation of those parodies. In this song he's basically like "If you don' like Murica' you can jus GIT OUT!"

Another lame cling to patriotism by a douchey has-been singer. It's not as bad as "Fake Woke" but it's still baffling.

What's so bad about this song?

6 Up - Cardi B

Why are y'all telling people what to vote for!?, doesn't that defeat the purpose of this site? I find it ironic that peoples opinions bother you and you come to a site where you know people are going to share their own personal opinions, if people find this song trash then go vote for something that YOU think is trash rather than interfere with other peoples opinions, you can't make the world revolve around you, that's life. Reality obviously hasn't hit some of y'all on this site smh, like imagine how boring it would be if we all went through life gatekeeping all the time, it takes away the sincerity of the site and results. Lyrically I just find this song shallow and cheap and it's the same old tired flow, can she at least do a freestyle (with no help) and show she's worthy of being called an mc, she's yet to do one, because her being compared to the greats before her is just weird to me, because there's timeless and there's hot for a minute type music and she falls into the latter

It's literally the "lovechild" of Mean by $not (ft. Flo Milli) & What's Poppin by Jack Harlow mixed with the bed spring squeaks heard in Some Cut by Trillville. Yet she sounds more whiny & higher-pitched like a child in this. Plus the same ol' sex stories like you hear in many "songs" polluting the music industry lately. This shows us how bland & unoriginal yet bitter & foul music has become lately. At least Taylor Swift & Olivia Rodrigo are making good music even after the original artists & bands like Daft Punk recently left.

While WAP sounds like Cardi tried to put in as much cussing in it and I like it sounds like she tried putting as much fun production in it, this sounds like she didn't know what to put inside it and just left it empty. It's not on WAP level of bad but it's very boring. I almost forgot it existed. Production sucks too. 1/5

This song is super annoying and like the rest of Cardi B's songs; it's got awful lyrics and ear grating vocals. At this point, this unpleasant woman is my least favourite music artist of today due to how her awful music bleeds my ears.

7 New Truck - Florida Georgia Line

Florida Georgia Line are just as country as two Southern-accented men driving a brand new pickup truck, having barbecues, drinking whiskey and hooking up with chicks wearing ripped jeans.

Trap and Country are the worst combination ever. It just like combining ketchup and ice cream.

Just look at the title, you know what to expect. But this is not Worst of The Year tier.

Does it really need to be explained why this is here? This is pop trap garbage.

8 Cutthroat - Imagine Dragons

Oh boy, this song is truly awful. It's trying too hard to sound like a rock song with nu metal elements, but it just sounds absolutely dreadful with the terrible screaming and vocals. This song sounds nothing like Imagine Dragons, plus I think this band needs to stop trying so hard to be a cool rock band, because really, this ain't it.

Holy hell, this song is atrociously messy! It sounds like a pop rock band trying to bring back nu metal to the mainstream but ultimately failing. Dan Reynolds' screaming is terrible and the outro is just creepy as hell. Imagine Dragons' songs usually come off as overproduced but this is a new level of overproduction.

This is legitimately unlistenable, and on top of that, the lyrics are almost complete garbage. I find it hard to believe that a band as high-profile as Imagine Dragons thought this was okay to put out.

Definitely their worst song yet. People thought Thunder was bad but this was way worse. I don't think Thunder is bad at all.

9 Beautiful Mistakes - Maroon 5 & Megan Thee Stallion

I am getting so sick of Maroon 5. In fact, they are not even a proper band anymore. It's just Adam Levine talking, considering how he gains the most spotlight and attention out of all the other members in Maroon 5. Anyways, this song is terrible. It's boring, generic and I don't even know what it's supposed to be any more. Megan Thee Stallion does absolutely nothing to save the song from being bad either. Plus the music video is just Adam Levine and Megan Thee Stallion flying inside a car and I am like, "What even is this song supposed to be and what am I even watching or listening to anymore?"

Megan thee horse again just a worse as the other songs she sings she can't even sing properly, she made the song out of tune and horrible with that rap.

Maybe I called them Adam Levine and His Melons. They are not a band anymore. They are just Adam Levine with backup.

The lyrics is stupid. Who makes lyrics like "She's naked in my bed/And now we lie awake, making beautiful mistakes"?

10 Abcdefu - Gayle

This sounds so much like Hot Girl Bummer it's funny. This song is so bad and I have no idea why this talentless hack is compared to olivia rodrigo in a good way or why it got so popular, plus the vocals sound like a watered down version of Blackharibobear and olivia rodrigo combined. Yea overall a terrible song

I actually thought this was a 2022 song at first since I hear it a lot this year. But this song still annoys the hell out of me. It has one of the worst choruses I've ever heard, hopefully this song falls into obscurity soon

Sounds like a first grader wrote it, so childish, so bad!

Fake pop punk. Enough said.

The Newcomers

? Safe Space - Bryson Gray

Lemme just say it again: To those of you who hate Tom MacDonald and "Fake Woke" (specifically the super left wing people who disagree with the politics), please do me a favor and actually fight the real enemy. This dude is actually a super far right nut. Left wing and right wing users of the site: Take a nice read of these lyrics and please try to argue that this song is somehow anything other than homophobic and transphobic? He literally says that gay people and trans people are a gateway to normalizing pedophilia (meanwhile this guy is a super extremist Christian fundamentalist, so he should probably be looking at his churches to find some of that), he says it should be a crime for a man to dress like a woman, calls black men who voted for Joe Biden a racial slur, and says that if he would literally belt his son if he found him wearing a dress. You want to dunk on a song for being far right wing? Take a listen to this. Apparently it even got taken off of streaming services because ...more

The Contenders
11 Substance (We Woke Up) - 03 Greedo & Wiz Khalifa

03 Greedo's vocals are so awful and Wiz Khalifa can't even save the song from being a total bore. In fact, this song is mortifying.

12 Country A$$ S*** - Morgan Wallen

Yet another generic country song. And besides, this guy's career is crashing on takeoff after he said the "n-word" in a recorded video. Also, he needs to shave his stupid mullet.

I can't believe this racist idiot made the best selling album of 2021. This song basically embodies everything unlikable about country music, from nasally twangy vocals to brick-walled production to clich├ęd and repetitive lyrics. It's not as bad as FGL's latest album but it's still annoying.

Oh no curse word in title must ban because inappropriate word

13 I'd Rather Die - Tramp Stamps

What a revolutionary track. See, we here are super progressive and tolerant, but we won't date straight white men because they're bad and evil and are the cause of everything we don't like. Of course, you don't have to date us, but the fact that the singer admits to having done so, and is now saying they're all undateable just because she had one bad experience with one straight white man, makes the song racist and sexist.

I guess I'm a little surprised that this damn song wasn't on the list. This song is the definition of Poser "Punk" or "Pop-Punk". The vocalist is terrible, and the autotune is awful. Also, don't even get me started on the lyrics. "I'd Rather Die than hook up with another straight white guy" What! Also, the lyrics are very sexual (in a stupid way), and misandristic.

Also for some reason I can't take this super personally/seriously because the lyrics are so pathetic (even though the lyrics are prejudice against some people).

What a sexist and offensive song! The lyrics are SO AWFUL and the line "I'd Rather Die than hook up with another straight white guy" has to be one of the worst song lyrics I have ever heard!

This song is awful, the lyrics are horrible, misandrist and sexual (and not in a decent way either) It's a shame because the production is half decent especially in the chorus but the lyrics ruin the song for me.

14 1+1 - Sia

I could put all of Sia's soundtrack to Music. The whole album is full of rehashed and repetitive melodies, repetitive and childish lyrics, outdated beats, and Sia's vocals sounding more ear grating than ever. To be honest, it makes me feel like I'm listening to Tones and I coupled with Meghan Trainor's pretentiousness. Her music was already declining in 2016 but now it's hit a point of no return. It hurts to say that but Sia probably never should've become famous.

Anything Sia does that is connected with the film "Music" will instantly be one of the worst of the year for me. This song is condescending, pretentious crap which equals the condescending crap that is the film "Music"

15 Eye to Eye - Sia

The production is okay but Sia's vocals sound horrible. In fact, she's becoming as unbearable as Tones and I unfortunately.

Listen to this Sia monstrousity? I'd rather have the song with the similar name from The Goofy Movie?

Disney should sue them!

16 Don't Tell Me How to Live - Kid Rock

I am really saddened to see "Drivers License" by Olivia Rodrigo above this pile of crap. I mean, you have the right not to like "Drivers License", but most of you who voted for it probably did it because it's overplayed or because you don't like Olivia Rodrigo. Again, you are entitled to your own tastes and opinions, but COME ON, this song is a masterpiece and doesn't deserve any hate whatsoever. "Don't Tell Me How to Live", on the other hand, has no redeeming qualities whatsoever and is just a terrible song with terrible lyrics made by a has-been douchebag who rightfully faded into obscurity. Please keep voting this song to get it over "Drivers License", which doesn't even belong here.

Funny thing that happened recently: Tom Macdonald on his song "See God" (which is actually pretty good in my opinion) called out Kid Rock for copying him. Actually thought it hit pretty hard. Lol

Oh dear God. You know, the people who think "Fake Woke" is the worst song of the year really do not realize that Tom MacDonald is probably one of the better "right leaning" artists you could pick to complain about. Do us all a favor and fight the real enemy. This song makes me understand why people cringe at Tom MacDonald songs. I consider myself libertarian, leaning to the right politically, so me calling this the worst song of the year is probably something you would not expect but...I mean, did you listen to this? I can't even decide what the cringiest part of this is, between the lyrics which are poorly written and express political views in such a laughable manner, the atrocious rapping of the talentless hack performing, and the try hard Chris Cornell impression done for the "hook", which is literally just a single line. I didn't realize music could actually make me cringe this much. 0/10.

Such a disgrace of a song. Kid Rock has always been a douche but this thing just sounds like Tom MacDonald doing his best Kid Rock impression at an SNL skit. 2021 has had plenty of trashy political songs and Kid Rock obviously had to be part of that bunch along with Aaron Lewis, another has-been from his generation.

17 Drivers License - Olivia Rodrigo

This song is annoying autotune garbage. It's even worse than back to school commercials. She has no talent, and she only justifies my opinion of not wanting stupid people (like her) to be famous. All of her songs can go back to the dumpster fire that they came from. Have we really not learned anything from 2010 when stupid JB was popular?

Annoying song. Tried to listen to it, couldn't. Not a big fan of her voice at some points it's awesome but at other points she sounds quite screechy. I guess that can be improved over time and this is her first album but still a terrible song that did NOT deserve all the hype it got.

Too overplayed in my opinion. It's an okay song but any time I get into the car or go into any store, this song is constantly playing.

Ugliest song about her complaining about a guy while talking about driving that's so ridiculous.

18 Wellerman - Nathan Evans

This is quite cringe. Also not a sea shanty fan so I won't like this. I remember when this was a huge thing and I wanted to die of cringe.

The song was decently made, but I heard it so many times that I got annoyed.

19 Twerkulator - City Girls

I never really judge a song by its name but in this case I already knew it was gonna be bad based off of the title. This song is strictly about, you guessed it, TWERKING! Why is stuff like this popular?

This is worse than Up by Cardi B. How are you not going to be energetic and sounds tired in a dance song, and having a lot of energy is your only good trait.

I know that one shouldn't judge something just by the title most of the time, but this song sounds bad, just by looking at the cover and the title.

Another typical twerking anthem. I wish these kind of song will die for the good to improve rap music.

20 Sip It - Iggy Azalea & Tyga

Who wanted another Kream? Especially from 2 lifeless and forgettable hacks? Kream was already horrid enough to be in my Bottom 3 of 2018 but I am not lying when I say that this is even WORSE. The chorus is so much more horrid and they both sound so much worse. Who asked for the both of them to use autotune, they can't even sound good by themselves. Even as someone who despised Kream this a downgrade, It's basically Kream with autotune and even more deadbeat energy and a lot more unecessary repitition. Iggy Asscheeks and Tyga did not need to make more songs, especially not together. I know it's only April but this is already the worst song of the year. -1/5.

Just seeing these two already tells you that this song stinks. I don't what that noise is, but it sounds like a frog croaking in the background. Iggy Azalea needs to quit this fake bad girl persona and go back to making pop rap songs, because that's when she really thrived. She's better working with singers like Charli Xcx, Rita Ora, and Jennifer Hudson.

It's time for Iggy Azalea to give up...it really is if this is the best she can come up with. I mean its really only memorable for two reasons 1. the line about sipping vagina like its styrofoam 2. Tyga declaring he is going to cannonball into this girl's vagina meaning he either takes a run up or does impossible things with his penis.

Well Iggy, I guess it's still 2018 to you, but your time is long gone, you can hang it up now. Also, why do you keep making songs with that predator?

21 American Gap Rap - Sarah Brand

Another disaster song after Red Dress. Much much worser than before. The vocals sounds like a soaked in helium accompanied with autotune. Much worser than Red Dress.

Red Dress is already horrible, but this is A LOT WORSE! Sarah is using autotune here and that makes it a way worse and it sounds super squeaky. I guess autotune hates her too lol.

Sounds like a female version of Submarine Man.

22 Fancy Like - Walker Hayes

This song was used in an advertisement for Applebee's. I don't hate songs for being used in advertising but that's pretty much the only reason for this song to exist and that is a problem.

Started playing everywhere from commercials to social media

23 Red Dress - Sarah Brand

Forget about "Friday" by Rebecca Black, this is a new level of awful. I don't know whether that song was supposed to be taken seriously, but there is really nothing right here. The singing and vocal delivery are so off-key it hurts and the music video is poorly edited.

This song is awful but I think it was meant to be awful. Everything about this song is out of place, and the music video further accentuates this observation. You can have your own opinion but I think this song in purposely cringey.

If you thought "Friday" by Rebecca Black or "Baby" by Justin Bieber were some of the worst songs ever, think again. I hate them too, but trust me, this is even worse. It's so off key and a pain to listen to. Weird music video too.

This needs to be higher. The girl's voice sounds like a cat high on helium trying a karaoke.

24 Biutyful - Coldplay

I actually didn't hate "Music of The Spheres". Yes it was very disappointing and filled with some bad songs, along with some just mediocre chart hits, but it's better than what Maroon 5, Imagine Dragons and OneRepublic are doing at the moment, because at least Coldplay still knows how to make good music shown by their ten minute song "Coloratura" which is a great progressive song. "My Universe" and "Lose Somebody" are actually tolerable for mainstream hit songs even though I don't like BTS and I am not a fan of Selena Gomez. "Higher Power" is just a fun and catchy song. This song on the other hand, is just trying to sound like it's done by an alien. The vocals are just really bad and painful to listen to.

As a longtime Coldplay fan, I can say that this is one of their worst songs ever made. Chris Martin is duetting with a nameless vocoder and the lyrics and the title sound like they've been written by an 8-year-old kid, which makes the song painfully corny, so much it's incomprehensible why it ended up on a Coldplay album at all.

25 Soul Train - YBN Nahmir
