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

People need to get over it.

I can think of over 30 hits songs worse than this - AlphaQ

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

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

3 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

4 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

The original that is not sung in frozen is absolutely beautiful sounding. It's definitely not my favorite song but its ok. - BlueberryCatfish

5 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

6 We Built This City - Starship

LOL it deserves the hate

No this SUCKS - AlphaQ

According to certain music magazines:

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

7 Revolution 9 - The Beatles

The only Beatles song that I don't like!


8 Happy - Pharrell Williams

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

9 Bicycle Race - Queen

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

10 The Lemon Song - Led Zeppelin

The Newcomers

? Despacito - Luis Fonsi

The Contenders

11 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

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?

I think the main reason this song is hated is because it's overrated!
So, what makes this the worst song ever? I could think of over 60 songs worse than this!

12 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson

This song is hated? - christangrant

13 7 Years - Lukas Graham

This DESERVES it's hate. - AlphaQ

14 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

15 Hello - Adele

This song is great - Cartoonfan202

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

16 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

This song sucks. Photograph is way better. - ZeroBlaster

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

17 Closer - The Chainsmokers

18 Honey I'm Good - Andy Grammer
19 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen

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

20 Whistle - Flo Rida
21 Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd
22 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

23 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

24 Shake It Off - Taylor Swift
25 Photograph - Nickelback
26 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

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

There is this dude after school who ALWAYS plays this song. It's SO annoying and dumb. - BlueberryCatfish

32 Tis a Pity She Was a Whore - David Bowie
33 I Don't Wanna Live Forever - Zayn & Taylor Swift
34 Mr. Moonlight - The Beatles

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

35 Higher - Creed

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

36 #selfie - The Chainsmokers
37 Barracuda - Heart

Overrated doesn't mean overhated, and as far as classic rock goes, this song isn't as overrated (NOTICE - I DON'T HATE ANY SONG LISTED HERE) as Stairway to Heaven and Bohemian Rhapsody are. - Swellow

38 Work from Home - Fifth Harmony
39 With Arms Wide Open - Creed
40 Blackstar - David Bowie

So overhated by one person the whole album is going on the list - christangrant

41 Boyfriend - Justin Bieber
42 Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It) - Beyoncé

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

43 Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites - Skrillex

Is this song hated? - DaisyandRosalina

44 Mockingbird - Eminem

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

45 Wonderwall - Oasis

Is this song hated? I think it's a little bit overrated, but I love it!

46 Famous - Kanye West

He had permission to write that controversial line, and the rest of the song is pretty good - ProPanda

Screw this song and screw Kanye West

47 Me Too - Meghan Trainor

I found this song really funny - DCfnaf

48 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

49 The View - Lou Reed & Metallica

I AM THE TABLE! - Swampert02

50 Range Rover Mansory - Apored
