Most Overplayed Songs of 2013

The Top Ten

1 Royals - Lorde

Lorde sounds horrible. The end.

Me too. This song is garbage. It's annoying, overplayed, and stupid. Man, 2013 was a terrible year for music.

So sick of this song

Voe more for Lorde I hate her
Roar, Radioactive, Blurred, Cups, Clarity all in this song on this list is not overplayed Lorde song is more overplayed but I like her Tennis Court song - Girly

2 Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus

I wish the old Miley was here

Wake me up and royals are okay, but this song must go in the garbage heap.

This song and video annoys the crap out of me.

3 Wake Me Up - Avicii

I like this song but it was overplayed in 2013.

This is definitely the most overrated song of 2013. I actually hate this song, and I have no clue why it is so popular. - EmperorAguila

A good song but overplayed

I like the song but to over played

4 Thrift Shop - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Words cannot describe how bitterly I hate this stupid excuse for a song. - PositronWildhawk

Ok I'll admit it was number one for half the year but over-played doesn't mean bad right? - TopTenListmaker


5 Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke

Urgh, this song is just so annoying, the tune is bland and you can't get it out of your head, the fact that it's played all the time certainly doesn't help matters.

Was fun but now it's old

This song is sooo stupid! How the H e double hockey stick did this become a hit let alone top the charts for 12 weeks?

6 Roar - Katy Perry

I hate how beloved Roar is. It's an okay song, but it's been played to much, and it enrages me how it follows me everywhere and everyone seems to love it. Maybe I am a hater, but the song is genuinely boring and lifeless (and a studio-farmed copy of "Brave") and everyone thinks it's brilliant and inspiring. Roar can blow me

It's an okay song in my opinion. It's not worthy however to be played on the radio 50 times a day! - Alpha101

Listen to Brave lyrics: Say if you wanna say and let the words fall out. Listen to Roar lyrics: Cause I' am champion and your gonna hear me roar. - Musicinlifes

Always on annoys me so much!

7 Best Song Ever - One Direction

Don’t hate it but I like it less than all the other songs on this list...these songs on the list are good

I hate one derection and they have to play all their songs so much?

Overplayed and is a shameless rip off to Baba O'Riley by The Who.

Best song ever. Nope. Just...

This is one of the worst songs ever.

8 I Love It - Icona Pop

I hate it.

Ugh, this is one detestable car-wreck of a song!

9 Clarity - Zedd

I liked this when I first heard it but now I don't because it is overplayed

10 The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) - Ylvis

I remember this song being so popular in 2013, I heard kids have it on their phones and stuff and say, what does the fox say and stuff - trains45

Nobody cares what a fox says! Besides, even if we did, you do NOT have to make a very disturbing song about it. If they would just do a quick Google search...

Come on guys it was just a joke. Not like they play it on the radio. Or at least I haven't heard it.

Yip! The fox says Yip! Now shut up!


The Contenders

11 Dark Horse - Katy Perry
12 Demons - Imagine Dragons

This is a good song

16 Treasure - Bruno Mars
17 I Knew You Were Trouble - Taylor Swift
18 Berzerk - Eminem
19 Counting Stars - One Republic

I don't even like the song but it's so overplayed I have it memorized - badgalriri

Wouldn't bother me except it's still played SO much and it's two years later! Hearing it over and over brings to attention how repetitive it is.

Loved it at first but they ruined it by playing it way too much :/

Overplayed and it's a terrible annoying song
