Top 10 Most Overplayed Music Artists of 2018Music 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 Most Overplayed Music Artists of 2018
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.
She isn't my style. I like pop, but some of her songs just aren't pop to me. Some of her songs I do like, but most of them, no.
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 swear to god, the more I listen to this woman, the less I like her. - AlphaQ
I don't get the rage with her. I don't like her style, and she's really overrated.
Her songs don't have any meaning and she doesn't even write them. She's just the 'new Nicki Minaj' and that's it. Her songs are 'catchy' but she's so problematic and overrated.
Annoying voice with no lyrical skill or flow. Have no idea how she is as popular as she is.
Drake was streamed like mad that year and I kept hearing his voice everywhere. I don't even hate Drake but Scorpion was such an awful album. - AlphaQ
I definitely think he was more overplayed that year than Ariana Grande he had 7-8 songs that got big (most of which were pretty boring) Ariana had only 2-3. - Powell
Most stuff by Drake after Take Care sucks. But I do like the song Nice for What
Am I the only one that thinks Drake was way more overplayed than Ariana Grande and Cardi B in 2018. Gods Plan, Nice For What and In My Feelings were all severely overplayed.
Forget everyone else on this list! Post Malone is so overplayed. Not just that, but his songs sound worse every time I hear them. Ariana Grande is also a little overrated, but she isn't painful for me to listen to. PM on the other hand drives me nuts with his heavy autotune, you can't even understand a single word. Please get him to number 1. I swear if I hear better now one more time, I will rip my ears off.
The best artist on this list, his songs are fire, but Circles and Goodbyes is way overplayed
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
It's the same "I dumped my boyfriend" songs with a victim complex. Maybe you're the problem in those toxic relationships. - Murphdog405
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
Her good albums were her country albums and 1989. Everything else has been going downhill.
You must mean the whole damn decade of the 10's for her and that little petty HS girl fight songs!
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)
Their album Night Visions was good, and it all just went downhill... Demons is still a bop though.
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
Yeah! When I went to their Evolve concert in 2018, Dan ( the lead singer ) gave a speech on depression and to not give up on ourselves, even through the toughest of times. - IceFoxPlayz
They are overrated because the same couple of songs are being played on the radio (Thunder,Beliver, Natural, maybe Radioactive) and fans hate on the band precisely because of this. But they are really not that bad. - DookieIdiotNimrod
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
Shes a good artist, but she is sure overrated and overplayed to death. Also, her fanbase can get kinda annoying at times. - AlphaQ
My sister keeps humming to her songs, and it's so annoying. I HATE BILLIE!
Billie: ImmA bAD GUy
Me: yes u r Billie your ruining the music industry
His music has nothing special. They're repetitive and don't have any special parts in them.
Oh good lord. Generic. Boring. Lame. Love songs with no substance that get WAAY too much radio play...
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.
Perfect and Shape of You are generic, boring and repetitive songs and should not have gotten as popular as they did. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
Pink is queen bro if her music is overplayed its because its gpod unlike grande
Whatabout us, jesus, every 2 hours this is played, and on every single radio show without fail
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
What About Us, Beautiful Trauma, A Million Dreams were highly overplayed throughout the year, they were so annoying,
Only What About Us was highly overplayed. I only heard the 2nd of those songs a few times and never heard the last one. - allamassal
Question, how do you go from the amazing "Songs About Jane" to the terrible "Red Pill Blues". Answer, you become Adam Levine and do anything for money.
Moves like Jagger? You mean like the old creepy dude from Rolling Stones? - Murphdog405
Adam Levine and some random dudes you won't hear in their songs...
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
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
Most of her songs are just herself having a stroke every 2 seconds.
Camila was so overhyped and overplayed and for what? Havana oh na na?
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.
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
her music is annoying
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
Plastic surgery, GENERIC pop music except with UNEARTHLY ANNOYING sounding music and they eat dogs. Stop playing music and die in Hell
Panic!, now just The Brendon Urie Show used to have amazing Alternative/ Indie music and even though the new material is not as good, it is quality music that is overplayed. Basically, Panic!'s music is quality, but overplayed.
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
"Meant To Be" sucks, I agree, but "I'm A Mess" and "In the Name of Love" are good songs. - I80
Okay but have any of you heard "I'm a mess"? That's one of her best songs.
Meant to Be sucks. - B1ueNew
Meant to Be sucks a lot, but one of her really great songs is "Name of Love". I recommend that you listen to it. It will definitely sound familiar to you once you start listening. - IceFoxPlayz
What has she even released recently? She just doesn't have the songs to live up to the hype.
I think Beyoncé is overrated, because her songs are just not special or something. She got praised once but I could ask 100 people what songs they know of Beyoncé and they would only name songs from the 2010's.
I don't remember hearing any songs by her
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.
Yeah Lie and Let You down is kinda annoying but his other songs are way better. Plus he is better than Nickelback
I WANT to STOP hearing Lie and Let You down already! - B1ueNew
Selena's songs are amazing!
She also has a great personality!
Compared to other music stars, she is so underrated.
Just because she's not a good singer as people like Beyonce or Alicia Keys or Mariah Carey or Christina Aguilera or even Tori Kelly, does NOT mean she's a terrible singer! THINK PEOPLE!
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
Halsey is so annoying...her vocals are utter trash and she's very unlikable. Heck, I'd rather listen to Cardi B than her and I don't even like Bacardi that much now. - AlphaQ
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
She hasn’t released anything in a while but I love her music and dancing. - PhoenixAura81
Shakira has very good songs! 👍
These guys are never played on the radio! If so, then they deserve to be played on the radio. Thunderstruck, Highway to Hell, Fly on the wall, all great songs made by a legendary band.
So overplayed in rock stations. - TheHabsFan
Ummm, I have never heard any Lil Pump song on the radio except for Gucci Gang and that song doesn't even pop up anymore. - 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.
Gucci Gang is probably one of his better songs, he's made way worse songs though haha. - AlphaQ
Would you even call this an artist?! - MemeTheKeem
ALL OF YOU PEOPLE STOP HATING THIS GIRL! she's amazing, she's 16 so she's making a pavement for more of her generation to come forward and make music. Plus, there are not a lot of teenagers in the world who would wear rainbow clothes and bows. She's a unique person we need in the world!
I am begging her to take out that ponytail. Even just for a week. I wonder how her hairdresser feels
Rip JoJo's hairline especially in this picture it looks like her forehead is huge.
He garbage. Him going to prison might be the first time he ever finished a sentence. - BestGrillIbuki
Hope he gets life imprisonment for everything he did, on and off stage
So scary that he/she (I don't know the gender! ) gave me night mares- like momo did...
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
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
I heard his remix of Lost In Japan by Shawn Mendes a lot on the radio in October 2018. annoying.
Annoying? ZEDD IS AN AMAZING MUSICIAN. His songs are definitely amazing and not annoying -__-
He used to make awesome songs. - PhoenixAura81
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.
Maybe it's the stations I listen to but never heard him on the radio. But have some resect and maybe don't call him names? (coming from someone who never listened to him) - poppunk
The only good song they had in 2018 was 'Valentine'. Youngblood is overrated and the band itself also has no original ideas.
Youngblood was good, but the singer sounds like a poser and is such a try-hard. - PhoenixAura81
Young blood so overplayed!
it felt like a never ending hostage! - maxfcallanan
Youngblood was good! - IceFoxPlayz
I used to hate Youngblood for about 6 months; now it has kind of grown on me. - GeneralJP
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
I Love shawn mendes
Why is My Blood the song getting all of the attention? Chlorine and Pet Cheetah are where it is at! - BestGrillIbuki
There newest album was trash
"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
Keep the music coming
Like Bebe Rexha, she has one overplayed song, but songs like "Don't Leave Me Alone" and "2002" are good. - I80
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.
Whoever still llistens to Big TIme Rush probably is stuck in 2010 - AlphaQ
This dude doesn't even have any hit songs lately... - abhaqq
I don't think he has any hit songs at all. He shouldn't be on the list. - RobertWisdom
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
OH TELL ME WHERE YO LOVE LIES - B1ueNew
Nah, this guy is good. - AlphaQ
This dude is good!
I saw him in concert THIS MAN HELLA FIRE
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 - GinnyWeasleyLuna
Eminem is an actual goat man blueLight he does not suck he's fire
I've never heard him on the radio to be honest.
He's overrated ut not overplayed, I rarely hear him on radios. - AlphaQ
Should be above he greatest rapper all time - vettel7
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
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
Only people stuck in 2008 still use the word "poser", but apart from that I respect your opinion. - AlphaQ
Shotgun is overplayed, but good.-JP!
He looks like Pewdiepie dyed his hair Melanie Martinez style. - XxembermasterxX
disgusting - blueLight
Great writer, great vocals, dresses to impress
I love rainbow - GinnyWeasleyLuna
Rainbow is far from good. - AlphaQ
I’ve only heard 1 of his songs
How is he overplayed? I haven’t heard any of his songs on any radio stations before
I love her old stuff, but Ruin My Alice is ruining my life.
I rarely hear him because he is usually not mainstream but he is great so I wanna hear more songs from him on the radio. - 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!
I don't hear from him much. - AlphaQ
Tory lanez is very much underrated bruhh forrreal
I think that "Everybody" is a great song, but "I Want It That Way" gets played way too much!
Just voting this for obvious reasons - yungstirjoey666
Should be top 10 - vettel7
I barely hear them on radios much. Decent band honestly, better than all the stupid Kpop bands. - AlphaQ
I certainly hate these vastly overrated coons. Terrible talentless rappers who only follow trends. - RobertWisdom
Cacoon boss Migos
Yow can I get a iPhone 10 please
Never liked them. Can't understand why they are played so f...in' much on classic rock stations. Do like the song the drummer sings about his car though.
Overplayed? I NEVER hear them on the radio, more's the pity. Maybe they'll be played more now because the movie Bohemian Rhapsody has been such a HUGE hit. If you don't like them, it's easy - switch the channel.
Exactly. How can Queen be on the list when they don't even have any current music out? Freddie Mercury's been dead for like 28 years. - RobertWisdom
I'd say Queen is overplayed for a good reason. I was drawn in by their cheesy songs and then introduced to their earlier works where they were much weirder and some would say hard to access. I'm glad they're over played because it's the reason why I got out of EDM and into what ever the hell I listen to now. - Nyoom
If you listen to classic rock stations, they are played every 15 minutes.
