Top Ten Worst UK Number 1 Hits

The Top Ten
1 Can We Fix It? - Bob The Builder

It was the Christmas number one of 2000.

It was obviously the kids who made it number one. They wanted their parents to get it.

Oh God, this is bad beyond all unholiness.

Proof that the UK has no taste in music. At least in the US, we have real songs instead of TV theme songs.

2 Dance Monkey - Tones and I
3 The Teletubbies - Teletubbies Say Eh Oh!
4 Mr Blobby - Mr Blobby

I watched Mr. Blobby on television, but this song. Mr. Blobby robbed Take That. They were supposed to get the Christmas Number 1 with their song "Babe." If I were older, I would want to kill Mr. Blobby.

5 Axel F - Crazy Frog

Surely, this should be the worst number-one single of all time. At least Bob the Builder's Can You Fix It? has proper lyrics and a tune.

Another reason it's the worst UK Number 1 single of all time is the fact that it prevented a much better song, Speed of Sound by Coldplay, from getting to Number 1.

Also, this wasn't fun in any way. Let's not forget it was based on an annoying ringtone. I hated this song in school.

6 Chocolate Salty Balls - Chef
7 Blue (Da Ba Dee) - Eiffel 65
8 Charlie Puth - Marvin Gaye

This is one of the few songs in which I think a reference actually disgraces the person it is made about.

9 Swagger Jagger - Cher Lloyd

Why is Bob the Builder number one? It's not a masterpiece, but... worse than this? This is genuinely one of the worst songs I have listened to in my life. It's borderline unlistenable due to how bad and over-the-top it is.

Another former X-Factor finalist with an average singing voice. Due to the media hype around her debut single, it managed to make it to Number 1. Despite being annoying and very poor.

Why is this not at the top?

Most of this list is either mediocre or even mildly bad.

Everything is a masterpiece compared to this mess.

10 Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini - Bombalurina
The Contenders
11 Flat Beat - Mr Oizo
12 Do The Bartman - The Simpsons
13 It's Raining Men - Geri Halliwell
14 Cotton Eye Joe - Rednex
15 Every Loser Wins - Nick Berry
16 Bom Bom - Sam & the Womp
17 My Sweet Lord - George Harrison

Poor lyrics, poor subject matter about George wanting to see God and never going beyond that. If it was because he had a wife, for example, who was dying and he didn't know what to do, and he wanted to turn to God because she is religious but he feels God will not listen because he committed cold-blooded murder in the past, that would instantly be a better song.

18 You're Beautiful - James Blunt
19 Abcdefu - Gayle
20 What Do You Mean? - Justin Bieber
21 Loca People - Sak Noel

Novelty 2012 UK Number 1 hit from a Spanish DJ. It's a very annoying dance song with a horrible beat and very few repetitive lyrics. "When I go to Spain, and I see everybody partying, I say what the heck." Played at nightclubs or discos, it's almost guaranteed to clear the dance floor of people.

22 Shaddap You Face - Joe Dolce Musical Theatre

It left "Vienna" by Ultravox stranded at Number Two. Go to hell, Britain.

23 Baby - Justin Bieber

I'm surprised this is at the bottom and that people didn't spam-vote this to Number 1.

24 Head & Heart - Joel Corry
25 Nero - Promises

2011 UK Number 1 hit.

Dull, annoying dubstep track that somehow got to Number 1 in the charts. One of the worst number ones of the 21st century. The tune goes nowhere. The vocals sound random. It's not my cup of tea, or maybe I just don't get dubstep.
