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.
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.
I honestly despise this disgrace of a woman. She is nothing but an overplayed piece of trashV 113 Comments
Annoying voice with no lyrical skill or flow. Have no idea how she is as popular as she is.
"I Like It" is so overplayed!
I can't believe people actually LIKE her!
This is what happens when record labels want to prove they can many literally ANYONE famous, regardless of skill, talent, or ability. - Xean45V 47 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. - MisfireV 8 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!
He needs to take his music with him and get in the shower
I like his song sunflower
Looks like a old man on crackV 16 Comments
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. - Misfire
Look What You Made Me Do is a monstrosity that should've never been released.
The old Taylor was a lot better than the pop centered Taylor.V 8 Comments
Whatabout us, jesus, every 2 hours this is played, and on every single radio show without fail
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 much
Love her great performance at britsV 5 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
Do I have to explain why I detest this band? - Death_Metal_Lover
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.V 22 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.V 10 Comments
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.
She will be forgotten. - VaibavKrishnaV 5 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
Ugh, one time I heard High Hopes, Saturday Night, and Hey look ma I made it all in ONE car trip! - BritishGoat
I love highhopes but it is just played every second of every day. There are much better songs I would like to hear besides high hopes and on the alternative radio I write sins. They are good songs but over played. Panic at the disco is like my favorite band but high hopes has been played way too many times
So overplayed, I heard high hopes on a damn rock radio once and it's not even rock - ToddHowardV 24 Comments
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.
I WANT to STOP hearing Lie and Let You down already! - B1ueNewV 3 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 - vettel7V 4 Comments
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
My Arrogant BTS friend likes someone 3 years older than her JUST BECAUSE HE IS ASIAN.
(I HATE HER SO MUCH.) - Sofiaaaaaa
He garbage. Him going to prison might be the first time he ever finished a sentence. - BestGrillIbuki

Lol why is Katy Perry at 12, did she even have any songs out this year? - elliotbd
Has she even made songs in 2018? - Misfire
Oh please, have you even heard him on any radio? - AlphaQ
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.
Lil Pump is trash
How is he not higher? Gucci Gang... repeat that in your head all day... then you'll get the song that will slowly but surely drives you mad.V 1 Comment
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?
True. His songs are everywhere! - MisfireV 4 Comments
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! 👍
Would you even call this an artist?! - MemeTheKeem
I flipping hate this bratty kid!
Rip JoJo's hairline especially in this picture it looks like her forehead is huge.
I hate her sooo much, her bows are rubbish and her pages in magazines are RUBBISH like what girl buck up you are rubbishV 34 Comments
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.
Never be the same was on the radio way too much. - Monkeywolf228
Ava Max is better
(Not her body (although I'd be lying if I was sayings it wasn't) her excuse for music).
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
"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 fan
who? - blueLightV 1 Comment
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.V 2 Comments
Shes a good artist, but she is sure overrated and overplayed to death. Also, her fanbase can get kinda annoying at times. - AlphaQ
That picture though. Lol!
That's a picture of me in math class. - RoseWeasley
What the heck is that picture? - MisfireV 18 Comments
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...V 11 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
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 videoV 2 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
Nah, this guy is good. - AlphaQ
OH TELL ME WHERE YO LOVE LIES - B1ueNew

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 - GinnyWeasleyLunaV 2 Comments
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 - vettel7V 8 Comments
"Happier" is so overplayed - Monkeywolf228
Deadmau5 copycat making mainstream crap. He deserved to be flipped off at Ultra.
I hate him. His synths suck and he is an EDM poser. - PhoenixAura81
Happier - ArcticWolfV 2 Comments
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 is the most overrated singer of the 2010’s. Why do people praise him like he is the best singer ever? - Userguy44
Well he's got an actual voice and never uses autotune, I'll give him that, but that doesn't mean some of his songs suck BIG TIME. - iloveit
Shawn is the most amazing person ever: He has an amazing voice, and he's such a kind person. He's handsome, clever, funny, a gifted singer, creative songwriter, and so... regular. He's doesn't act like he's an incredibly talented person and famous singer; he acts like your typical modern teenager, just a whole lot more good-looking, and he's so nice. He's the "Walk-an-old-lady-across-the-street" kind of guy. Most people who dislike Shawn don't take the time to understand him. Search him up; listen to his music; watch his interviews, and tell me you don't like him AFTER all that.
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. - GeneralJPV 6 Comments
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? - Dragon12604V 2 Comments
Never heard of him - GachaRobert36
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
His song move is great

Rainbow is far from good. - AlphaQ
I love rainbow - GinnyWeasleyLuna
Great writer, great vocals, dresses to impress
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
I don't think he qualifies on this list. - Misfire
He deserves to be played all the time. he has some of the best music in the whole world - ShrekTheGoat
Body Like a Backroad is 1 of the worst hit songs of the century. - AlphaQ
I've never heard songs from theirs playing at the radio or anywhere else last year. - Misfire
This band is so good they write super cool songs
Wow I wish they were played a lot
M A N IA was trash so no wonder it wasn't played. Why is this on here? Fall Out Boy better get good again. I love their older music and litterally anything but M A N IA. - BestGrillIbukiV 1 Comment
