Top 10 Most Overly Dramatic Songs

Songs that are more dramatic than needed and can kind of come off as cringey in a way.

The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen Cover Art
2 Centuries - Fall Out Boy Centuries - Fall Out Boy Cover Art

It's melodramatic with both vocals and lyrics... but honestly what Fallout Boy song isn't overdramatic?

3 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence Bring Me to Life - Evanescence Cover Art

Maybe a little bit and again Evanescence has made better songs than this.

4 1-800-273-8255 - Logic 1-800-273-8255 - Logic Cover Art

A melodramatic and pretentious anti- suicide song, the message is tolerable but again the way the message is delivered is heinous.

"Who can relate? WOO! " - The01Bro

Not exactly the worst song, but message could be delivered much better. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Well it is a suicide song. - DarkBoi-X

A poorly done and horrible suicide song that fails at its anti- suicide message...

5 Death to All but Metal - Steel Panther Death to All but Metal - Steel Panther Cover Art

It's a parody song it's supposed to be OVERDRAMATIC and over the top. You can't expect lyrics like "EMINEM CAN SUCK IT, AND SO CAN DR. DRE" to be taken seriously and it doesn't try to be serious at all.

6 Last Resort - Papa Roach Last Resort - Papa Roach Cover Art

Papa Roach with this song tried to make being depressed and suicidal badass. Yeah, that doesn't work.

Not only is it edgy... but it also feels melodramatic with it's suicide message. And is very hard to take seriously.

7 Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi Cover Art


8 In the End - Linkin Park In the End - Linkin Park Cover Art

Eh kind of.

9 I Knew You Were Trouble - Taylor Swift I Knew You Were Trouble - Taylor Swift Cover Art

If you knew he was trouble, then why did you date him in the first place? It's overdramatic, and honestly kind of whiny in a way.

Sanitarium is better - lilrocketman

Meh, I've heard different songs that sounded better than Taylor Swift's songs.

10 Let You Down - NF Let You Down - NF Cover Art

I hate to include another NF song, but NF is such a melodramatic Eminem clone and it hurts. The song's message isn't bad but the way it's done is WAY TOO over the top.

The Contenders

11 Scars - Papa Roach Scars - Papa Roach Cover Art
12 How Could You Leave Us - NF How Could You Leave Us - NF Cover Art

A song about NF's deceased mother... the message itself isn't bad... but the way the message is delivered is melodramatic and painful.

This song honestly is very annoying to my ears

13 God Must Hate Me - Simple Plan God Must Hate Me - Simple Plan Cover Art

This list wouldn't be complete without a Simple Plan song. The song's message itself is very trite, and the way it tries to be taken seriously fails and falls flat on its face.

14 Wonderwall - Oasis Wonderwall - Oasis Cover Art
15 I'm Not Racist - Joyner Lucas I'm Not Racist - Joyner Lucas Cover Art

I completely disagree with this song being here. I think this is a masterpiece. - phillysports

Really? I thought it was a great anti-racism song. It adresses the viewpoints if both blacks and whites, and how people can be racist to each other. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Another anti- racism song that does a very poor job with the message it conveys... and just can't be taken seriously.

What in the world are you taking about? This is a great song. It doesn’t do a poor job conveying its message at all.

16 Love Bites - Def Leppard Love Bites - Def Leppard Cover Art

I love Def Leppard but let's be honest this song is a little bit too cheesy and overdramatic.

17 Careless Whisper - George Michael Careless Whisper - George Michael Cover Art
18 Whiteboy - Tom Macdonald Whiteboy - Tom Macdonald Cover Art

It tries so hard to be taken seriously with a anti- white racism message... but honestly the way it does so is so over the topic and melodramatic.

19 Help - Pink Guy Help - Pink Guy Cover Art

You guys realize this is a joke song, right? - Not_A_Weeaboo

Joke songs are supposed to be melodramatic... on purpose.

20 Everybody Hurts - R.E.M. Everybody Hurts - R.E.M. Cover Art
21 S.O.S D'un Terrien En Détresse - Dimash Kudaibergen
22 Runaway Love - Ludacris Runaway Love - Ludacris Cover Art
23 Never Be the Same - Camila Cabello Never Be the Same - Camila Cabello Cover Art

My ears will never be the same thanks to this song - B1ueNew

24 Paranoid Android - Radiohead Paranoid Android - Radiohead Cover Art






GOD LOVES HIS CHILDREN - xandermartin98

25 The Metal - Tenacious D The Metal - Tenacious D Cover Art
