People need to get over it.

2 Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus

Deserves Number 2 right behind "Baby". This is one of Miley Cyrus' best songs. I'm one of the few user sites who defends this singer even though her antics used to be crazy. You guys don't even hate the song, you guys just hate the video. And even THAT is not awful, I don't even care if she swings naked on a Wrecking Ball. The only part of the video that is remotely gross is when she licks the hammer. - DCfnaf

It's a great song, people hates this song because of the video, but who cares about the video? Listen to the cut version and shut up! - DaisyandRosalina

The song is everything a pop song should be: it is catchy, well-produced and well performed. It leaves an impression. It is very memorable.
People don't hate the song, they hate the music video. But even that is not as bad. If you cut out the few seconds where she licks on the hammer, it is pretty aesthetic actually. Yes, nudity is aesthetic. European know that. And the imagery of her tearing a wall down in slow motion is a good visual metaphor. But the shots of her with her tongue out ruin the experience. It us just trying to look shocking and don't fit in the overall concept. - Martin_Canine

Meaning the video was disgusting but I liked the song. I'm not lying. - Carsrule300

3 We Built This City - Starship

LOL it deserves the hate

No this SUCKS - AlphaQ

4 Revolution 9 - The Beatles
5 Friday- Rebecca Black

No, this is actually justified.
One of those choruses that try so hard to be both extremely cheerful and an earworm that it ends up being annoying, lyrics that sound like a foreigner has written it (I must know, not being a native speaker) and a bad vocal delivery by Rebecca Black. Which is weird, because if you look at her channel, she can actually sing pretty well. She is overhated as a singer because people judge her solely on this song which is terrible. - Martin_Canine

6 Let It Go - Idina Menzel

What I never got: why does one of the most critically acclaimed movies and soundtracks get so much hate on this website? - Martin_Canine

People just hate it because it's from Frozen. - PerfectImpulseX

7 Best Song Ever - One Direction

Pretty much every 1D song is overhated.

This song is definition of mediocre. All of their songs I know are mediocre.
Actually, both One Direction and the Jonas Brothers are entirely mediocre and generic, make music that is far from being memorable. But they... don't suck. There is simply nothing outstanding here, neither positively nor negatively.
So... why exactly the hate? - Martin_Canine

8 Bicycle Race - Queen

Voting because someone "Single Ladies" got in the top ten. - DCfnaf

9 The Lemon Song - Led Zeppelin
10 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

Despite what some people think I don't hate this song in fact it is in my top 10 Nirvana songs but it's the fact that this song is so high and a lot of times number 1 on lists gets annoying and predictable anyway its also high on lists where it doesn't even belong I looked on the list of Greatest hard rock songs and it was Number 8 on a list where it shouldn't even be on in the first place whitch that only shows that the people who vote for it don't know much about music and only vote on it because of its popularity and nothing more. So in my opinion this song isn't overhated because of the amount of Love it gets overweighs the hate by 1000 to 1 keep in mind I don't hate this song but I get sick of seeing it high or even number 1 on lists even where it shouldn't belong. - christangrant

Incredibly overhated. People hate the entire band for this one song even though they've had several. This song is so overrated its overhated. - NuMetalManiak

The Newcomers

? Roar - Katy Perry

Just another one of those songs that got a lot of hate and I will never understand how or why. - allamassal

The Contenders

11 Rockstar - Nickelback

People hate on this for all the wrong reasons (yes pun intended) - christangrant

Decent song, not Chad Kroeger's best but not his worst

The 3 Nickelback songs on my list are hated for literally all the wrong reasons but I'll go into detail about why each of them are overhated
This one is treated as one of the worst songs ever but this song is actually very good and fun to listen to but the real reason this is overhated is people think this is actually supposed to be about the life of a Rockstar which is not the case it's a PARODY of a Life of a Rockstar so yeah that's why this is number 1 on my list - christangrant

This song is good it's just that the stupid critics think their so 😎. They must be on '

12 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen

This is a great song. 5/5 - AlphaQ

Its an OK Song, it just gets annoying if you play it all over again - VideoGamefan5

13 The Trial - Pink Floyd

Do people hate on this song?
I never heard of anybody hating on it. It is actually an amazing finale on a critically acclaimed concept album. - Martin_Canine

14 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson

This song is hated? - christangrant

15 Something in Your Mouth - Nickelback

People hate this for false reasons they say its Mysogisnistic which IT IS NOT plus hating this song of rthe lyrics in inaccurate because it's a song about Sex but yet almost EVERY other Hard Rock band have songs about Sex sure maybe they are better at doing their songs and yes they do sing more than just Sex but it seems hypocritical to hate this and praise a Led Zeppelin song about pretty much the same thing - christangrant

16 Happy - Pharrell Williams

Whys this getting so much hate while depressing songs like Stairways to Potato Cancer are considered good? - AlphaQ

17 Hello - Adele

This song is great - Cartoonfan202

18 Photograph - Nickelback
19 Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd
20 Higher - Creed

There's no way this is one of the worst rock songs ever - christangrant
