Top 10 Most Overhated Songs of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Baby - Justin Bieber

I like this song.

Pretty much everything this guy makes is overhated. - AlphaQ

That's an early song when he was 15. His second song. Its an oldie now.

So, a C-list song from a mediocre teen is the worst song ever? Ha. Come up to me, I could think of 50 worse songs off the top of my head. - WonkeyDude98

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.

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 video is questionable, but the song itself isn't terrible. We Can't Stop and Do It are much worse.

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

4 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

5 Best Song Ever - One Direction

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

Yeah, this song is bad, but it's not the opposite of the title. - DCfnaf

6 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

7 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.

13 Closer - The Chainsmokers

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

I still can't understand the hate for this, as well as anything The Chainsmokers have released since then. - allamassal

14 The Lemon Song - Led Zeppelin UListen to Sample
15 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

It's the most over-hated song in existence! I don't listen to it very much, but does the song have anything offensive to hate it?

25 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

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

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

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

It's seems whenever this song gets added to any list, not even a day after, someone comments saying "they don't like the song" with a lame excuse. - christangrant

42 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
