Top 10 Most Overplayed Music Artists of 2018NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva Music artists, good or bad, who got WAY too much plays on the radio in 2018, up to the point where you would want to rather have a seizure than hear these artists on a regular basis.
The Top Ten
Ariana Grande's music is so generic and uninteresting, it's the kind of trite you'd hear in McDonald's. I especially hate that disasterpiece with the name Thank You Next. A LOT. It's so annoying and terrible, yet it's played everywhere! - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
I should do an experiment where I turn on a radio station for about four hours and see how many times it gets played. - railfan99
Ariana Grande was completely and annoyingly overrated in 2018. People argued with me saying that it's cause she was actually good. No she wasn't. 2-3 of her songs were good but oh my gosh why does every single song this woman release have to be printed into the holy bible? People hype her songs way more than they should. A lot of her songs were really uncreative and had really mediocre and boring melodies. I think it's safe to say people were so obsessed with her last year cause she's pretty and cute cause her music really is nothing special.
Why do I have to get the same birthday as this list? - TheAwesomeDude54
Honestly, Ariana Grande can sing and act, she is talented, but she is overrated. There are other artists that people are sleeping on. Everyone seems to like her but I think she could honestly make better music than her current music. I honestly liked her old music way better, it had more of a catchy, poppy vibe Ariana Grande seems to be better at.115 Comments
Annoying voice with no lyrical skill or flow. Have no idea how she is as popular as she is.
Overrated, payola - kakashiismyking
Who even wants to be her, it must be painful to have golden spikes implanted into her head, why is her nose and mouth always covered by a bunny or vampire faccemask, and where did she get that bunny tail?
I don't get why people like her, but they can like her if they want to.51 Comments
*turns on radio*
" I only love my bed and my mama, I'm sorry"
Holy, music has gone for the worse. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
Couldn't agree more! Nowadays music has no meanings whatsoever. - toptenuser6
*friends start singing in my feelings*
Me:no Kiki does not love you - GinnyWeasleyLuna
Well, all that's pop music at the moment should be number one. It's quite dead now!
To be honest, his songs sound boring and lazy to me. - Misfire8 Comments
Rockstar, Better Now, Psycho, Congratulations, Jackie Chan, etc are all overplayed. It's like you can't find any radio station that doesn't play his generic music!
Man this guy must be on top
He needs to take his music with him and get in the shower
I like his song sunflower17 Comments
Taylor Swift I really don't mind because she has slightly good taste in music but I would like it way better if she still kept making country music. The only song by her that I like that's non country music are her old songs like I Knew You Were Trouble. Other than that, her new songs are just boring
You must mean the whole damn decade of the 10's for her and that little petty HS girl fight songs!
End Game, Ready for It and Delicate are so overrated and overplayed. Delicate is the worst out of those three, and the music video is stupid. In it, all she does is make dumb faces. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
I'd prefer if she went back to her old, country style, even though I'm not a fan of her country songs either. Her recent songs are very overrated and overplayed. They aren't even that good. - Misfire10 Comments
Whatabout us, jesus, every 2 hours this is played, and on every single radio show without fail
Love her great performance at brits
I've only heard one of her songs, what about us. - Luckys
What about us is like pop music in an airport and the airport is so bad that it can only afford one song that is how overplayed this is. Also a million dreams and beautiful trauma were played tooo much5 Comments
This band is amazing, but most people wont know because they are "hate" this band because THE RADIO plays maybe THREE of their songs too much. Well let me say this I NEVER get to hear these guys on the radio and they have Amazing songs(especially the older ones) such as: Bleeding out, its time, amsterdam, fallen, thief, dream, smoke and mirrors, 30 lives, round and round, my fault. Their music means something special unlike most music today. They give good messages (gold is about the dowside of being famous. 30 lives was written for one of their friends/fans that died of cancer. Bleeding out to me means doing anything for someone we love even if it means dying or bleeding out)
I do not agree with this (in my opinion) Imagine dragons are the best band in my book, I hardly heard them on the radio in 2018. I don't know why these guys get so much hate their lyrics are meaningful and not "my boyfriend broke up with me" unlike most artists on the radio these days their concerts are amazing and send positive messages, so leave these guys alone all you haters
I LOVE their song! sooo good
They would be good and I used to really enjoy it, but I've heard so much of them recently; I'm kind of done with them now.22 Comments
I'm a mess is like, her only good song
Meant to Be sucks. - B1ueNew
Meant to Be is trash. - AlphaQ
Okay but have any of you heard "I'm a mess"? That's one of her best songs.6 Comments
Girls Like You is practically their only song being played. Their other songs are never played at all compared to that generic cancer "song". That song makes Taki Taki look like Hotel California - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
Since 2016 They became so annoying : Don't wanna know, Wait, Cold, Girls like you what too much of the same. The way Adam is singing in every single one of this songs annoy me so much.
My parents listen to their newer songs unironically and I'm getting sick of being played in the house
There are some really good bands high on the overplayed list (mostly because of about 1-3 songs...) but Maroon 5 is not one of them.10 Comments
High Hopes is a great song. But it's getting too overplayed. - B1ueNew
Well, I mean, he likes Nickelback. Should we all take him seriously? - ZeroBlaster
Awful band. They made a song, and they auto tuned the ever loving crap outta it.
High Hopes was my first panic at the disco song now it's too overplayed
HIGH HOPES BELONGS ON A TODDLERS SHOW27 Comments
Wait this dudes white - Manlypants
At least He's better than nickelback!
It is not overplayed I never here song anymore I'm sad because his music IS ACTUALLY GOOD
I love his songs though... Paralyzed, let you down, other ones I can't remember the names off the top of my head... Don't at me please.4 Comments
Selena Gomez's music is literal trash, her vocals are almost as bad as her lyrics. I'm sorry if you love her, but I honestly hate her music, hate her, hate her petty, vulgar attitude and I absolutely can't stand her. I can recognize talent but this just isn't it.
I was probably one of her first fans, I always listened to her EARLY music. Ya'll might not believe me, but she used to be amazing. Now it's just embarrassing. - SheWolfCloud
She looks like shes five
She trash n not good singer - vettel74 Comments
He garbage. Him going to prison might be the first time he ever finished a sentence. - BestGrillIbuki

Overrated trash - AlphaQ
If we took the amount of makeup and plastic surgery they have on their faces, their weight would be cut in half.
They are the perfect 14-year-old white girl magnet. They seem cute as hell, sure, but they only are that way because of makeup and plastic surgery. (lots of Kpop artists get that for some reason)
Their music is just pure no. I don't understand it, not because of language. I don't get why anybody likes it. I hear BTS singing and I hear more autotune than actual voice, same with most new pop and hip hop I hear. The background is drenched in the same electronic sound effects and crappy drum machines that 100% of electronic music uses these days; in simpler terms, it's generic and I have heard better. Not to mention their fans are ridiculously aggressive, such as the commentor below who said "This behavior is absolutely disgusting. They're humans too, so act like it." You calling the act of people sharing opinions that differ from yours disgusting disgusts me.
In my ...more
I don't care for this group one bit. Not only are they overplayed, but it's also annoying that most BTS fans keep shoving their opinions down your throat (just look at the comments posted on here). Please, just accept the fact that not everyone will like their music. - Misfire
Annoying, annoying, annoying and annoying. Oh did I mention annoying?46 Comments
Lol why is Katy Perry at 12, did she even have any songs out this year? - elliotbd
I haven't even heard a single song of hers on the radio, except maybe Teenage Dream and California Girls like once. - BMT
Has she even made songs in 2018? - Misfire
Oh please, have you even heard him on any radio? - AlphaQ
Lil Pump is trash
He is a brilliant soul brought to this Earth to guide us through our darkness. The bringer of happiness, the sharer of spirit, through his divine music.
He sucks. - PhoenixAura812 Comments
To the people b! tching about Ed Sheeran, YOU do better.
His voice is so clear that the listener can hear every word he sings unlike many, many, many other artists, AND he is EXTREMELY successful.
Ed Sheeran, stop making your song cliche and stop being overdramatic with the voice and ugh the lyrics! He needs to die already
Perfect and Shape of You are generic, boring and repetitive songs and should not have gotten as popular as they did. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
I actually really like Ed Sheeran. However, some of his songs just got overplayed, you know?5 Comments
I don't remember hearing any songs by her
What has she even released recently? She just doesn't have the songs to live up to the hype.
I am part of the minority of people who think that Beyoncé is overrated. I’m 12, I’ve listened to Beyoncé songs, and I found them... boring.
I believe that she’s a beautiful woman and probably a great person, her music is way overplayed.
She hasn’t released anything in a while but I love her music and dancing. - PhoenixAura81
Shakira has very good songs! 👍
The whole hotel shampoo thing is why I despise people like Halsey, which is way too many. It is so ridiculous, I think I literally face palmed when I saw it. Halsey needs to grow up and find better, reasonable ways to get attention. - SheWolfCloud
Gotta be honest, some of her songs are overplayed, but she isn't as overhyped as Ariana Grande or Cardi B
"Bad at love" "Him and i" and " Without me" are overplayed. - Monkeywolf228
Halsey is the best and my favorite artist EVER I am her #1 not CRAZY fan2 Comments
Would you even call this an artist?! - MemeTheKeem
She what 13? she should be in school.
I flipping hate this bratty kid!
Big bows are just straight up stupid38 Comments
Camila tries so hard to look hot and use all these latin beats in her songs, but has a terrible singing voice and such boring songs. I literally heard havana so many times and it just never seems to end. Seriously why did she have to leave Fifth Harmony? She was way better there
This is not whether we like the artist or not, the list is who was overplayed. And Camila was overplayed. I personally don't care for her but my friend HATES her. Says she has a whiny, annoying voice and personality; to a certain extent I see his point but he should rant about her whenever he hears her name mentioned or when Never Be the Same gets played.
Back on topic, she still was overplayed.
Her voice is extremely annoying. - PhoenixAura81
Never be the same was on the radio way too much. - Monkeywolf22811 Comments
I have to admit that while she isn't my favorite or something I would listen to everyday, but compared to a lot of the other artists on this list, hearing one of her songs on the radio is a real breath of fresh air. Her songs are way more interesting then your typical pop songs. Even if she's overplayed, it would be better Billie Eilish than Ariana Grande. - slipperyjack30
My sister keeps humming to her songs, and it's so annoying. I HATE BILLIE!
Shes a good artist, but she is sure overrated and overplayed to death. Also, her fanbase can get kinda annoying at times. - AlphaQ
She is so good22 Comments
That song The Middle is pretty annoying to listen to. The chorus of that song is stupid, and the entire song is a rip-off to his other song Stay, which was bad enough. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
The Middle, I heard 3 or 4 times! - ArcticWolf
He used to make awesome songs. - PhoenixAura81
I heard his remix of Lost In Japan by Shawn Mendes a lot on the radio in October 2018. annoying.2 Comments
She doesn't have any new songs out... - Dragon12604
If you don't know who Madonna is then honestly shame on you. Go to youtube right now. - SheWolfCloud
He's gotten more overplayed since his death. This douche is only famous because he died. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
Come on Don't call him a douche yes he's overplayed and everything but still have some respect - Redrocky416
Overrated hunk of trash, only considered good because he's dead
Everybody just plays sad and moonlight over and over. I mean their good but he has amazing songs that don't even have over 20 mil views.
Listen to "Arms Around You" before saying anything else...11 Comments
There newest album was trash
Why is My Blood the song getting all of the attention? Chlorine and Pet Cheetah are where it is at! - BestGrillIbuki
"My blood" is overplayed - Monkeywolf228
Eh overplayed not really. I enjoy the song but they have better songs from that album such as Pet Cheetah, Legend and The Hype. - FetusDeletus
They’re some SERIOUS posers. - PhoenixAura81
Friends is a terrible song, that tries too hard to be edgy. It just sounds like every single other song in the mainstream today. There's literally no way to tell each song apart from one another anymore. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
Friends was okay. But 2002 was awful and so was that song called perfect or something. Why is she famous? I don't get it. - elliotbd
2002 played daily on every UK station 2002 times every day, on every single presented show. Horrendous.
One hit wonder.
Oh my god Anne-Marie is pretty and a great singer Friends was amazing Marshmallow was lucky to even be in her video2 Comments
I thought she's irrelevant now. I've never heard any of her songs playing last year. - Misfire
She has a few songs where the demo artist is singing, not jlo herself. she is a bit of a fraud
This dude is good!
I saw him in concert THIS MAN HELLA FIRE
Nah, this guy is good. - AlphaQ
OH TELL ME WHERE YO LOVE LIES - B1ueNew2 Comments
I'm not a fan of A Star is Born but I respect her talent in music, but Shallow is very heavily overplayed. - AlphaQ
Ever since she released Shallow and now seems like she actually has some stored up Talent, I am interested to see where her music begins to go. Hopefully she keeps making actually decent music. - AlexZoraj
I keep hearing paparazzi a lot... - toptenuser6
Shallow is overplayed - GinnyWeasleyLuna1 Comment
He's overrated ut not overplayed, I rarely hear him on radios. - AlphaQ
I've never heard him on the radio to be honest.
Best rapper alive - Genesyis
Should be above he greatest rapper all time - vettel78 Comments
So many times have I heard his songs! But one I was at a big party and the Dj played a song by Marshmello and asked me who made the song and I got it right! So now now I have Snug Play headphones!
"Happier" is so overplayed - Monkeywolf228
I hate him. His synths suck and he is an EDM poser. - PhoenixAura81
Deadmau5 copycat making mainstream crap. He deserved to be flipped off at Ultra.4 Comments
I Love shawn mendes
I love stitches - Gaming_With_Kay
He has an unappealing voice and his songs are generic and overplayed. Also, a kid I go to school with said that he is better than BRUCE DICKINSON! That happened when I showed her and some other kids some Iron Maiden during an advisory group meeting (the teacher was in a meeting, so we were all by ourselves). - PhoenixAura81
I hate his singing, his technique needs serious help, he screams, he's nasal, his songs are vanilla and I feel like the only reason girls like him is because of his looks. Sooo overrated.
We need to educate the younger generations on MUSIC.
He looks like Pewdiepie dyed his hair Melanie Martinez style. - XxembermasterxX
disgusting - blueLight
He thinks he is hot and he tinks everone else thinks he is hot but he is honestly overrated and he is not ugly but not even close to hot
Never heard of him - GachaRobert36
His song move is great
Thought he was a comedian1 Comment
I love Nikki Minaj, but she was literally featured in EVERYTHING. - iamawesomedog
She is the best for having the perfect body and a nice voice
pretty Nicki Minaj
Lol that picture - BestGrillIbuki
Queen of rap3 Comments
Youngblood is straight up trash. - AlphaQ
Youngblood was good, but the singer sounds like a poser and is such a try-hard. - PhoenixAura81
Youngblood is getting me tired. - Userguy44
Youngblood was good! - IceFoxPlayz
I used to hate Youngblood for about 6 months; now it has kind of grown on me. - GeneralJP6 Comments
I’ve only heard 1 of his songs
I don't hear from him much. - AlphaQ
Actually VERY overplayed! Don't believe me? Well, it's actually true. Because I'm Canadian and where I live there's a popular radio station that plays rap music. The singer himself uses autotune at some point. I can't stand those awful songs Talk To Me and B.I.D!
Tory lanez is very much underrated bruhh forrreal
You guys need to really chill out, have you even heard her on the radio? She never appears on radios ever. - AlphaQ
All you have to know is that she got famous for being rude to her mom on Dr. Phil. - BestGrillIbuki
Same record label that signed Led Zeppelin and Aretha Franklin is now signing somebody that got famous for nothing more than becoming a meme.
We are truly in the end times. - AlexZoraj
Who the hell is this? - Dragon126042 Comments
Evergreen boyband ❤ - Suraj28
Shotgun is overplayed, but good.-JP!
He had great songs and all, but the pedophilia stories and the fact that he sexually abused all of those young boys (at least in the new allegations) and that he dangled a baby (who was also his SON) off of a balcony makes me hate him as a person. - PhoenixAura81
He deserves to be played all the time. he has some of the best music in the whole world - ShrekTheGoat
I don't think he qualifies on this list. - Misfire
Is he even played on radio stations? - Userguy44
Cheap thrills and chandelier are so overplayed
Who is he? - 0w0uwu
