Top 10 Worst Songs of 2022

The Top Ten
1 Twinkle Twinkle Little Bitch - Leah Kate

This immature faux pop rock song. By a Olivia Rodrigo wannabe. I mean 10 reason I hate you was immature like this song. Also, Leah Kate makes Gayle sound like a old woman. I mean seriously

I don't even know HOW half of the artists we've been having today even have music careers in the first place? I mean, really. 2013 to present was just full of boring, mediocre and unoriginal sounding music. Like, I don't even know who the hell Leah Kate is, but I can tell she's another one of "those" artists judging from her songs.
"F Up The Friendship", "TTLB" "10 Things I Hate About You".
So original. (Sarcasm)

Just another immature faux-pop-punk song made by an Olivia Rodrigo wannabe. "10 Things I Hate About You" was already average, immature and unoriginal enough, but this song just confirms that this singer has no personality whatsoever and is just an opportunist. At least "abcdefu" is catchy, but this is not. It's also disturbing to know that Leah Kate is approximately 10 years older than Gayle and still manages to make music that's even more immature than the latter's.

2 Betty (Get Money) - Yung Gravy

Get this song above "I'm Good (Blue)" now. Its sample of "Never Gonna Give You Up" is definitely a bigger offender than "I'm Good (Blue)". Plus, Rick Astley sued Yung Gravy for impersonating him.

More cringe comedic rap. Not even funny. The rickroll is so outdated and overused and the song's composition is lazy and non-energizing.

Rick Astley just sued Yung Gravy over this song, claiming his voice was "nearly indistinguishably" imitated on "Betty (Get Money)".

3 Booty Dancer - Tyga

Another awful song from Tyga. The lyrics are pretty bad and repetitive too. Hopefully Tyga fades into irrelevancy and never make another hit.

The title of the song and the fact that it's by Tyga is enough to make me not want to listen to this song, everything Tyga puts out is either obnoxious, annoying, incredibly sexist, boring, bland or just plain bad.

How the heck is Tyga still popular?

4 I'm Good (Blue) - David Guetta & Bebe Rexha

People, for heaven's sake, stop making interpolations of popular Top 40 songs, and turning them into TRASH.

This makes the original "I'm Blue" look like Beethoven's 5th Symphony.

It is just a lazy sample of "I'm Blue" by Eiffel 65.

5 Mona Lisa - Lil Pump

God...Lil Pump fell off so hard and this song with Soulja Boy proves it.

This has the picture of Mona Lisa. Why are you disrespecting this?

I thought Lil Pump was no longer a thing by 2020...

6 Gine - 6ix9ine

One question: how is the Skittles man not in jail and why is he making such terrible, obnoxious and annoying songs that I want to rip my own ears off and have them for breakfast (a little too far but that's what I feel like every time I hear this Skittle-haired pedophile, he sucks at making music and should've just stopped making music in 2019. Just goes to show how bad Snitch9ine the Skittle Man is getting over the years.

- KelseyPower

It's obvious by that picture that it's going to be a disaster of a song. Normally, you shouldn't judge a song by it's cover, but it's excusable this time because it's 6ix9ine.

Another lifeless song by Snitch9ine. It's just him yelling his guts out and dropping n-bombs over an unremarkable trap beat and a vaguely creepy John Carpenter-esque piano riff. I'm really glad a lot of people who were "fans" of his music finally kicked him to the curb last year. This song is tanking and for good reason.

7 10 Things I Hate About You - Leah Kate

Oh no!
Oh hell no!
This is basiclly Leah Kate's first single, and it sounds horrible!
Sure, it doesn't sound worse than TTLB per say, but it's still terrible, and I've listened to this song too many times that it's overplayed and getting worse every hour it plays.
Okay, first off, Leah Kate sounds like an Olivia Rodrigo wannabe, and that's obviously a bad sign, her vocals are whiny in this song, the lyrics are terrible and makes it a bad breakup song, the instrumental tries too hard to be considered pop-punk, it's just bad.
As PieGuyRulz likes to say, this is a Scum song. This song is annoying, stupid, incredibly boring and a waste of time.

Oh Jeez, another Olivia Rodrigo wannabe! The song has immature lyrics. I do not understand why TikTok made this song popular.

It's definitely not as bad as TTLB, but it's still one of the worst of 2022. Leah Kate definitely sounds like an Olivia Rodrigo wannabe and the lyrics are super immature. Also, you know what? I'll give out 10 things I hate about this song.
10. It's very childish.
9. Autotuned and annoying vocals.
8. It sounds like fake pop punk.
7. Offensive lyrics.
6. Another annoying breakup song.
5. It also sounds like it was written for Tiktok
4. Judging by the song title, I already knew this was gonna be bad and it 100% was!
3. Super whiny vocals.
2. The lyrics are very immature, even more immature than abcdefu. What's worse is that Leah Kate is almost a decade older than Gayle.
1. It definitely sounds like an Olivia Rodrigo clone. I can also agree than Leah Kate is the worst OR clone yet.

8 Down Bad - Amouranth

This song is so bad that I honestly think this makes Jake Paul's "It's Everyday Bro" look like a masterpiece. The lyrics are horrible, and I don't think Amouranth had any musical experience prior to this.

The production on this track is terrible, and the rapping sounds like that chick talking on "#Selfie". It's also very sad to read that Amouranth made this song because she had an abusive husband.

Just your average bad rap song by a big name Youtuber who has very little to no experience on rapping or making music beforehand. Nothing more to say here. Moving on.

9 Staying Alive - DJ Khaled

Another generic track with Drake on the vocals talking about how "people wanted him to die" even though he grew up doing Degrassi at 15. DJ Khaled - swing and a miss.

Such a terrible interpolation of The Bee Gees on this dull track that's gonna be forgotten as fast as it came out. DJ Parody Khaled is hopefully already fading into irrelevancy with his new album which is just as dull.

Say what you will about Betty (Get Money) but at least that was an entertaining and fun song that actually did something with it's sample. This is just another below average DJ Khaled and Drake collab song with a boring and dull beat and Drake phoning his verse in yet again with a very bad intropolation of the Bee Gees classic chorus on the hook. Even Lil Baby's guest verse couldn't save this song.

10 Iffy - Chris Brown

Generic garbage from Chris Brown. By the way, what is wrong with the audio on this track? Vocals and surrounding chords/melody are dulled but the bass is loud. Horrible production.

Just another lame song made by Chris Brown, he should just stop making music already because most of his songs 2014-present are bad, his pre-2014 stuff (even after he assault Rihanna, but that's the worst thing he ever did) was somewhat decent, but this song is just screaming TikTok to me.

Another uncreative song made by Chris Clown. When will he finally stop urinating on popular music?

The Contenders
11 Smile - RuPaul

So much AutoTune it gives me a headache.

This song doesn't make me smile.

12 Phuckboi Rejects - Royal & the Serpent

Complete garbage. It was promising starting out. I thought I was gonna get some decent 2000s pop-punk throwback but instead what I got for the chorus was cacophonous throw-up.

This should be no.1 and higher than any Yung Lambo songs. This song is completely abysmal. Sounds like a dying whale. So whiny and annoying.

I really hate this song that it's on the top of my remix, it makes "Iffy" sound like a masterpiece.

13 Emo Girl - Machine Gun Kelly & Willow

This song needs to be higher on this list. The lyrics are so perverted and degrading they seem to have been written by a 15-year-old while MGK is 32. It also sounds like a bad Good Charlotte song.

This should be WAY higher, like in the top 3. MGK is 32 years old but is acting like he's a teenage emo. One of the worst songs on an album with TERRIBLE production and whiny songs.

At least this is getting the backlash it deserves from the comment section.

14 New World Order - Tom MacDonald & Adam Calhoun

Fantano ranked this song #2 on his list of the worst songs of 2022. I haven't even listened to it but I still think it sucks because it was made by Tommy the MacDonald Clown and another idiot.

15 Amazing Call - Yung Lambo & Hood Guy

This song is just a troll. Please don't take it seriously. This is just a joke.

This is actually garbage

Troll song, what else to say?

16 Community D**k - Rae Sremmurd

This has to be the worst song of the year. That jingle bells interpolation in the chorus, that damn squeaking bed noise from currents, the off key nature of the chorus melody and the productions and the bad verses really make this song a strong contender.

17 We the People - Kid Rock

Ranked #3 worst song of 2022 by Anthony Fantano, and it's totally normal because this song sucks so damn hard.

Another atrocious song made by Kid Rock. Much worse than "Don't Tell Me How To Live".

18 Lovesick - Maroon 5

Annoying song with a bland beat and Adam Levine belting out like a decaying goat. It was just released as a radio single in some countries but it's gonna tank for sure.

Yet another mainstream pop song with Adams dog whistle voice.

This is plain boring

19 G.O.A.T. - The Notorious B.I.G.

Tbh why release projects and songs from deceased artists? This song just has a dull beat and lyrics. This song shouldn't be made in the first place. Just let the Notorious B.I.G. rest and people should stop releasing posthumous projects.

I think posthumous releases need to stop ngl. The Notorious BIG has been dead for years and yet this year, his label decided to drop this posthumous song which has really bad mixing. People really need to stop creating atrociously mixed and unfinished projects from dead artists in general, because this just isn't it. It's like insulting someone's grave when they are dead.

When will people realize that making unfinished projects from dead artists isn't anything original? And I also highly doubt that Biggie would ever make a song like this.

20 Circo Loco - Drake & 21 Savage

Ironically, I could barely recognize what this song sampled until the end of its actual simple.

21 I'm Back - Lil Pump

Another atrocity from Lil Pump. As usual, the lyrics are pretty generic (like most modern rap lyrics) and awful and Anthony Fantano didn't like this track either. And no, it doesn't look like you're back, Lil Pump. It looks like people forgot that you existed. He should stay in 2018 and 2018 only.

Yet another generic and impersonal song by Lilliam Pumpernickel. Let's leave him back to the late 2010s already.

22 Jiggle Jiggle - Duke & Jones & Louis Theroux

Wow, this song is awful, this song literally sounds like some cringy parody of a song I haven't even heard of, the instrumental is garbage, the rapping doesn't match the instrumental, and the AUTOTUNE! THE FRICKING AUTOTUNE!, the autotune in this song is unbearable! It sounds like some male Siri/Amazon Alexa/Microsoft Cortana ripoff just woke up from a eight day long nap! It's that awful! And the worst part about this song is that it was made popular on Tiktok, TIKTOK!, no wonder those immature teens don't know good music, because it's just sad that they haven't heard of actually good bands like Queen, Metallica, Radiohead, The Used or Led Zeppelin, but instead they listen to mostly soon-to-be one hit wonders like this song and other crappy songs (except for "Dreams" by Fleetwood Mac, which is a good song.)

Overall, I give this song a -35/10 star rating because it's just awful, definitely one of the worst songs of 2022.

KelseyPower out!

23 Rocking a Cardigan in Atlanta - Lil Shordie Scott
24 Unholy - Sam Smith & Kim Petras

This very song itself and the 2023 Grammy performance of this song is just a prime example of how music is no longer like it used to be. It is THAT bad and I mean HORRIBLE.
Sam Smith really thought he went so hard with this song, but the very song itself is incredibly unoriginal. And Kim Petras' line was the worst line I have ever heard. Music these days is just full of untalented artists, they're not worth listening to. Can he PLEASE go back to making his boring music so I can just not hear from this guy anymore?

This song is so HORRIBLE, I don't even get why Sam Smith wanted to take the trap music route instead of doing another ballad.
At least in 2019 and 2020 when he was still pop, he was ACTUALLY decent, mostly because he didn't have any trap songsā€¦ not yet.
But this, this is UNFORGIVABLE! Even Kim Petras can't save this song from being one of the worst songs this year, I can't believe this song was played on the radio every day, the lyrics are messed up and the beat is just a tragedy for Sam, I like Sam Smith, but this song is just TERRIBLE!

25 Made You Look - Meghan Trainor

I hate this song so much. It's like the kids bop version of itself especially with that awkward 'I MADE YOU LOOK' at the end of the chorus which sounds straight outta something kids bop would write. It's like all about that bass but worse. The lyrics are basically her flexing luxury stuff but with some 'body empowerment' message that I fail to see over an either grating or barely existent backing track. Meghan normally isn't too bad but this song I find to be pretty terrible.

I like most of Meghan Trainor's music, but this song is garbage.

Wasn't this shtick old in 2014?
