Top 10 Most Overdramatic 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 UListen to Sample
2 Centuries - Fall Out Boy

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

UListen to Sample
3 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

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

4 1-800-273-8255 - Logic

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

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.

UListen to Sample
6 Last Resort - Papa Roach

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

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

8 In the End - Linkin Park

Eh kind of.

9 I Knew You Were Trouble - Taylor Swift

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.

UListen to Sample
10 Let You Down - NF

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.

UListen to Sample

The Contenders

11 Scars - Papa Roach UListen to Sample
12 How Could You Leave Us - NF

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

UListen to Sample
13 God Must Hate Me - Simple Plan

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.

UListen to Sample
14 Wonderwall - Oasis UListen to Sample
15 I'm Not Racist - Joyner Lucas

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.

UListen to Sample
16 Love Bites - Def Leppard

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

UListen to Sample
17 Careless Whisper - George Michael UListen to Sample
18 Whiteboy - Tom Macdonald

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.

UListen to Sample
19 Help - Pink Guy

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

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

36 Sad! - Xxxtentacion

As a fan of xxxtentacion, I like this song. However I think X is trying too hard to look depressed. Example: "Suicide if you try to let go" (Really? come on). Again, I don't hate the song, but this song is pretty overdramatic, and the message could have been portrayed much better. - Not_A_Weeaboo

UListen to Sample
37 Untitled - Simple Plan

HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN TO MEH, MADE MEH MISTAKES GOT NOWHERE TO RUUN. The vocals are probably the most melodramatic thing about this song.
