Top 10 Most Overhated Songs of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Baby - Justin Bieber

It wasn't even that bad to be honest. - DarkBoi-X

This is above par for Justin Bieber. That's how trash he is - I80

Personally I like this. It's a very cute song, despite Ludacris's awful rap verse. If you actually hate this for a real reason, okay.

But to say you hate it because you think it makes you look cool? Or because he looked/sounded like a girl? Really?

It's not even the most disliked video on YouTube anymore. It now has more likes than dislikes on YouTube (not by much, but still something).

In other words, the Bieber hate is old. Stop. - oneshot

I like this song.

2 Friday- Rebecca Black

It actually does suck but its definitely overhated. Why you gotta send death threats to a person who didn't try while making Friday but had decent stuff? - AlphaQ

The hate is justified, but the fact that a stupid electropop song by an autotuned teenager is the second worst song ever because of her voice and the ridiculous when you consider that so many other songs are stupid and poorly sung. Also, the death threats she received. Come on, you don't see those comments come up on the videos of people like Kodak Black, but here they're common? - DCfnaf

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

3 Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus

I love this song. Don't judge a song by it's music video.

Deserves Number 2 right behind "Baby". This is one of Miley Cyrus' better songs. It's not great and it has shrunken on me, but the real hatred people have is the music video, which is just sickening. - DCfnaf

This song was only hated because of the controversial video. If it wasn't for the video, I'm sure this song would have gotten much less hate. - allamassal

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

4 Best Song Ever - One Direction

People hate it even more because of the title. - DrayTopTens

The hate is justified. - Userguy44

Its boring. These guys aren't that bad, they're just boring. - AlphaQ

It's just a mediocre and cheesy boyband song, but people call it the worst song of all time just because the title is Best Song Ever. Remember, the reason they named it that is probably because they were actually talking about another song in the lyrics. - allamassal

5 Let It Go - Idina Menzel

Let me guess 90% of people who hate this song are frozen haters. - Randomator

It's a nice disney song I don't understand the hate.

Its not good but the fact that it's from Frozen doesn't help it. - AlphaQ

Not a great song, but if it wasn't from Frozen and didn't get oversaturated, people wouldn't despise it so much. - DCfnaf

6 We Built This City - Starship

It;s the best song ever (no sarcasm, I mean it)

Oh, god no. It being rock doesn't make it overhated, this is a bad rock song. - DCfnaf

LOL it deserves the hate

According to certain music magazines:

This is different from Jefferson Airplane, so that makes it the worst song ever.
UGHGGHH - 445956

7 7 Years - Lukas Graham

This song deserves its hate - Randomator

This DESERVES it's hate. - AlphaQ

8 Revolution 9 - The Beatles

The only song on this list that actually belongs on this list. The others deserve their hate. - AlexZoraj

The only Beatles song that I don't like!


9 Happy - Pharrell Williams

This song is good. Overplayed, but it's a fun song. - DCfnaf

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

It’s decent - Randomator

10 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson

It’s decent just overplayed - Randomator

This song is hated? - christangrant

The Contenders

11 Bicycle Race - Queen

It's not that bad. - Userguy44

This is hated? - TheFourthWorld

This is literally the only song in the top 10 that doesn't deserve the hate it gets. - benhos

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

12 What Makes You Beautiful - One Direction

Nah this song is Annoying as hell to hear but to be fair I have heard worse - christangrant

Dude, if you can name 7 or more worse songs, you can claim this song is overhated. - Bammer73

13 Closer - The Chainsmokers

I personally love this song. I can see how it would be annoying to some people, but it reall is way over hated.

It deserve hate. It's generic, simple and it gets old fast. Also the lyrics aren't that good in my opinion. - Userguy44

Honestly, this is deserving of the hate. Lazy, bland, annoying, simply awful. - DCfnaf

It’s overrated and not that good honestly - Randomator

14 The Lemon Song - Led Zeppelin
15 #selfie - The Chainsmokers
16 Hello - Adele

This song is great

Love this song, I love most Adele songs! :3 - BlueberryCatfish

17 Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd

People call this and Sweet Home Alabama the worst songs ever, but I've heard worse to be honest!

This is hated! - Userguy44

18 Believer - Imagine Dragons

It’s a Mediocre song. Better than Thunder - Randomator

19 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

20 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen

No, this is underhated. - I80

It’s mildly annoying but far from the worst - Randomator

This is a great song. 5/5 - AlphaQ

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

21 Gangnam Style - Psy

Irrelevant now - Randomator

No. - Userguy44

22 All About that Bass - Meghan Trainor

This song sucks - Randomator

No this song sucks! - Userguy44

23 Whistle - Flo Rida

No, this deserves the hate it gets, especially since it's a song about blowjobs that still made it to #1 on the Hot 100 - StarlightSpanks

24 Rockstar - Nickelback

One of the most misunderstood songs of all time. It mocks the life style of rock stars. What's so bad about it? The video is fun to watch. Music is catchy, Billy Gibbons of ZZtop is featured, and so on. I don't get the hate. - Metal_Treasure

Not a very good song, but definitely overhated. - Userguy44

This song sucks. Photograph is way better. - ZeroBlaster

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

25 Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites - Skrillex

Yeah, overhated because dubstep gained too much popularity because of Skrillex. It's not meant for everyone. It's to electronic music what grindcore is to rock music overall. - JoLeKosovo

Is this song hated? - DaisyandRosalina

Some people claim that dubstep isn't rEal mUSiC because it doesn't have any real instruments in it. - oneshot

26 Crank That (Soulja Boy) - Soulja Boy Tell 'Em

The fact that some people think that it "killed Hip Hop" just proves how overhated it is. No, it did not kill Hip Hop since not only did Hip Hop still continue to rise in popularity after this, but there were plenty of great Hip Hop songs that came after 2007.
It's no masterpiece but it's not a terrible song either, just a fun Dance Rap song that oldheads just love to hate on just as much as they hate Mumble Rap or Lil Wayne. - DarkBoi-X

I'm not saying it's good, but I think most people just hate it because they see it as the song that ruined rap. I can think of many songs worse than this one. And I can't lie and say that I didn't listen to this as a kid. - DaWyteNight

27 Watch Me - Silento

Deserves it’s hate - Randomator

2015 version of Crank That (already one of the worst songs ever). Wait a minute, what list am I on? I forgot because of the other comment here. - allamassal

If Crank That is still being regarded as one of the worst songs of all time than this deserves all the hate it gets because it is worse than crank that in fact it's a ripoff of Crank That and there's nothing to like about this song - christangrant

28 This Summer's Gonna Hurt - Maroon 5
29 No Flex Zone - Rae Sremmurd
30 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

People need to learn overrated and bad are not the same. - Userguy44

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

Wait what, this is the exact opposite - DCfnaf

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

31 Fireflies - Owl City

I love this song! Didn’t even know it was hated. - Oxymoron15

I grew up with this song
It may not be TOMMOROW NEVER KNOWS OR ECHOES but it's a charming happy INNOCENT song that I will always love.:) its just MY OPINION

32 Roar - Katy Perry

Not horrible - Randomator

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

33 Right Round - Flo Rida
34 Boris the Spider - The Who
35 I Don't Wanna Live Forever - Zayn & Taylor Swift

I actually think this song is okay. - allamassal

36 Me and My Broken Heart - Rixton
37 The Hills - The Weeknd

It's hated for a reason: because his voice sounds really annoying. - DaisyandRosalina


38 St. Anger - Metallica

It wouldn't be hated so much if the snare sounded normal. - Userguy44

Yup - christangrant

39 Mr. Moonlight - The Beatles

Not exactly a "Beatles Song" as its just a cover, and 95-percent of their output was written by them.

40 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

I have heard 5 thousand people say this song sucks and I am sick of hearing people say that nonsense. Also, why is this hated masterpiece only #45? It should be at least in the top 5. It is super duper extremely overhated. I can't stand how so many people hate this song and it's always for dumb horrible reasons. Kids these days are totally obsessed with bad music. Why do a lot of teenagers like listening to crap like 6ix9ine and other trashy artists. I seriously need to get teens to start listening to good music like this song. I'm sure Freddie Mercury would be sad if he was still alive to see how people don't get him and his band much attention today. #EndBohemianRhapsodyHate. - DrayTopTens

Overrated not overhated. It's good though. - DarkBoi-X

Overrated? Yes. Overhated? What the living hell? This is the most UNDERhated song of all time. I have seen ONE person say a bad thing about this song. Literally ONE. - AlexZoraj

People hate this for dumb reasons. - Userguy44

41 Gucci Gang - Lil' Pump

Terrible song - Randomator

Deserves the hate. - Userguy44

42 Tis a Pity She Was a Whore - David Bowie
43 I Like It - Cardi B
44 Sweatshirt - Jacob Sartorius
45 Boyfriend - Justin Bieber

Hate is justified! - Userguy44

46 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran

This song is overrated as hell - Randomator

This deserves the hate. - Userguy44

This song deserves the hate it gets. - Oxymoron15

47 Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It) - Beyoncé

Not bad - Randomator

You're kidding. This has to be one of the world's worst songs in almost every class and classes yet to be made.

48 Mockingbird - Eminem

No this is great and everyone say is the best song of Encore

49 Work from Home - Fifth Harmony
50 Babawagen - Apored

This is a rap song by a famous German YouTuber that has way more dislikes that likes on his songs (he is known most for pranks, challenges and 100 degree knife videos).
Actually, I don't see the problem with his music. Sure, all he raps about is materialistic things and he is not a very lyrical rapper (the German rap scene has a large amount of multisyllabic rappers, while ApoRed uses cat-in-the-hat rhymes), but he actually sells it pretty well. The beats are dark and perfectly produced, the choruses are earworms and he has a good and melodious flow. Right now trap is very acclaimed in Germany, both the German one as well as the American one, so I don't see what makes this particular rapper is supposed to be bad. It's a pretty good overall package, not amazing, but not bad either. And this song in particular has a very catchy chorus.
A 3 out of 5 for me. - Martin_Canine
