Most Overplayed Songs of 2016


The Top Ten

1 7 Years - Lukas Graham 7 Years - Lukas Graham

The song is average, but why the heck do people like it so dang much? - Bluebird

This Song is Horrible! That's just the Gist of it. He sucks a artist and making music that actually matters. This song is god Awful!

I really hate this song. It's not even music. It's just some guy talking about some stupid thing, almost no music in the background, just sucks.

For overplayedness, tied with No, Don't let me Down, Closer, Can't stop the feeling, This is what you came for, treat you better, Just like fire, one dance, and a lot of songs overplayed in Summer 2016

2 Love Yourself - Justin Bieber Love Yourself - Justin Bieber

Why do people even like this piece of garbage? - RockFashionista

The more boring song I've heard for a long time, it never gets going, snore!

I actually like this song, but WOW can I not wait for it to finally go away. - WonkeyDude98

This song is boring because I don't like Justin Bieber. It got so overplayed, and my friends at school liked it. I don't.

Drake pays all the radio guys to play his music

5 Closer - The Chainsmokers Closer - The Chainsmokers

MY MOST HATED SONG OF AL TIME. Kill me if it comes on the radio.

Am I the only one who prefers don't Let Me Down and thinks this is too overrated? Please tell me - AlphaQ

It would actually be impossible to turn on the radio at any time for like half a year at this point without this song being on at least 2 radio stations...

I hope this song die fast. -The singers aren't even good. And the song itself is so repetive. While how bad the song is, the song is getting overplayed on the radio which make the song worser.

6 Can't Stop the Feeling - Justin Timberlake Can't Stop the Feeling - Justin Timberlake

I didn't particularly like this song in the first place but after it was played one zillion times it got on my nerves, and now let's just say if you play this in front of me I will slap you.

Can't stop the feeling of irritation when I hear this song

It's a good song. Just appears too much. Panda and Me Myself and I don't even appear on the radio and are excellent - AlphaQ

7 My House - Flo Rida My House - Flo Rida

My House by Flo Rida? More like No House by Al Abama! ! This song is as overrated as HECK! It has been used in 20,000 ads, most of the world loves this song, the lyrics are meaningless, and became the Wrestlemania 32 theme for no reason! ( NOTE: WRESTLEMANIA 32 THEME WAS SUPPOSED TO BE SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL BY MOTORHEAD! ) Do you know who likes this song? Everyone I know! Do you know who hates this dumb song? Me! So screw this overrated song!

Feel like leaving my car when the radio plays this

The Newcomers

? Heathens - Twenty One Pilots Heathens - Twenty One Pilots

I liked it for a certain amount of time, now it's just annoying. The lyrics make no sense, it has nothing to do with the movie, I don't get why this isn't higher - Midevilnight

I literally cannot go a single car ride without hearing this song..or part of it as I switch to another station immediately. I am being literal. Even if I am in the car 10 minutes, go into the store and come back out 10 minutes later I would have heard the song twice.

Don't know why this is on the list.

Not one of Twenty Pilots best.

The Contenders

11 Cheap Thrills - Sia Cheap Thrills - Sia

I've only heard it once or twice on the radio to be honest. - TheAlbinoWolf

I don't know why it is not even in top ten! Sia's voice and the beats of the song were at least better than jb's sorry

This needs to be #1. Only song I EVER hear. - The01Bro

12 Hello - Adele Hello - Adele

Whoever calls this song "overplayed" and "annoying" really needs a hearing aid. It hasn't been played in 9 months where I live. - Swellow

Release date: 23 October 2015 - NOT 2016

So over played

So overrated as hell. It alright though

It's not overplayed in my area. I barely hear it no mo - AlphaQ

13 Panda - Desiigner Panda - Desiigner

I like this song and haven't heard it on any radio ONCE. Also what? There is no actual clean version of the song. Even the one on now 94 you can clearly hear him say multiple words which have not been edited out

This song is awesome. I just haven't heard it on the radio ever. And it's a #1 hit - AlphaQ

I got crocs in Atlanta. Nah I meant I got rocks in Australia - AlphaQ

We got it.. you got broads in Atlanta..

14 Ride - Twenty One Pilots Ride - Twenty One Pilots

This song is getting overplayed, but who am I to complain, I love it! I overplay it by myself, the radio isn't going to kill it for me. - WonkeyDude98

I swear to Christ I heard this song TWICE on the same station with a mere HALF-HOUR distance

I love this song and this duo, but their popular songs get so overplayed at this point, Ride and Stressed Out start getting annoying

Don't need reasoning why it's even here

16 Sweatshirt - Jacob Sartorius Sweatshirt - Jacob Sartorius

I have only heard this song once from my annoying fangirl sister who loves this song ( I might need to get a brain scan done on her. And a DNA test.) Thank lord and god almighty that I haven't heard it anywhere else.

This is horrible but not overplayed. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

It's atrocious but it's never played on the radio, thank god.

Literally makes my ears bleed

Almost every car ride, I hear this good awful song. - Midevilnight

18 Stressed Out - Twenty One Pilots Stressed Out - Twenty One Pilots

It did get overplayed millions of millions of times

Overplayed, heard this twice within 1 hour.

Not overplayed for me but I hear sometimes. But I love this song 8D

This is a good song, but admittedly there is a feeling of dread that settles when I hear the melancholy opening "Va-whump, va-whump, va-whump."

19 Sue (Or Season of Crime) - David Bowie Sue (Or Season of Crime) - David Bowie

This was never played on radios. Heck, Blackstar wasn't played on radios. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

Is that the cowboys symbol

20 Don't Let Me Down - The Chainsmokers Don't Let Me Down - The Chainsmokers

In this situation, overplay was a blessing - ProPanda

This song makes me want to barf, throw myself out of a car window, drink out of a toilet, or do all three! - mayamanga

This song was ok to when it came out but with the overplay, I don't want to hear this song again. Every time this song comes on the radio and I hear Daya's singing, I turn the station. Who let Daya have a career anyway? I have already heard three songs from her ( Hide Away and SSLP), and she has been making nothing but garbage this entire year.
