The Contenders: Page 2

21 This is What You Came For - Calvin Harris

This is easily the most overplayed song of the year yet I had to add it to this list? What's wrong with you people?! I have to hear this literally everyday! - SirSkeletorThe3rd

22 No - Meghan Trainor

Any one who likes this YOU NEED TO LET IT GO even Megan said it

Very overplayed. It was ok at first, but seriously it was played LITERALLY every 10 seconds so I got sick of it. After a while it just becomes repetitive. I wish the radio stations didn't kill it like they did.

Never liked this

This is an amen

23 Let Me Love You - DJ Snake

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

GOD - Midevilnight

24 Dollar Days - David Bowie

Why does someone keep adding David Bowie songs? - AlphaQ

25 Stressed Out - Twenty One Pilots

It did get overplayed millions of millions of times

Overplayed, heard this twice within 1 hour.

How is this not top 5?

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."

27 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran

Overplayed songs of "2016"! - POWERStarz2004

This song was made in 2017 - micahisthebest

28 All We Know - The Chainsmokers

It's not a good song, but I haven't heard it on the radio.

Once - 1507563

29 Side to Side - Ariana Grande
30 Fight Song - Rachel Platten

This has been the worst song on the radio for so many months and it seemingly will never die from the air waves. Who can honestly endure the torture of hearing this weak uninspiring whining about someone who says in her song that she doesn't care about others? - alketamark

31 We Don't Talk Anymore - Charlie Puth

My mom hates this song, but I don't mind it.

Charlie Puth is awful. This is one of my biggest unpopular opinions so please don't kill me. This song is garbage and so as the album. 1/5. Sorry CP fans - AlphaQ

32 Mercy - Shawn Mendes

Needs To Be In The Top 5 - VideoGamefan5

Yes - 1507563

33 Don't Mind - Kent Jones V 1 Comment

35 I Took a Pill in Ibiza - Mike Posner

Who cares that he took a pill in Ibiza?! - mayamanga

This song was played thousands of times - 1507563

I love this song - Neonco31

Pills aren't good for you. If you pee on me and I hear your autotuned farts. I won't kill you. - AlphaQ

36 What Do You Mean - Justin Bieber

Me: I hate this song.
Justin: What do you mean?
Me: Just leave me alone, you moron. - mayamanga


37 Here - Alessia Cara V 1 Comment
38 Same Old Love - Selena Gomez

At first, I didn't mind this song that much. Then it started becoming popular and overplayed. And by overplayed, I mean that you could go on any random radio station and you'd hear this song, every third play. I mean SERIOUSLY! There isn't a single song I can think of that deserves that much overplay, much less this disaster-piece with bland lyrics and an ear-grating chorus. Hell, this song, or anything by her for that matter, shouldn't have become popular. It should have just faded into the obscurity of Wizards of Waverly Place.

Same - 1507563

39 Sit Still, Look Pretty - Daya

Yes it does doesn't anyone listen to z90 93.3 and 103.7 - 1507563

This song never plays on radios. But it's not really good. 3/5ish gah - AlphaQ

40 Don't Wanna Know - Maroon 5
