Most Overplayed Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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."

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

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

I love it! That's a good thing! They're playing TWENTY ONE PILOTS for you instead of Justin Bieber. You should be grateful. - lovefrombadlands

23 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

24 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

25 Let Me Love You - DJ Snake

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

GOD - Midevilnight

26 Human - Rag'n'bone Man

I heard this twice in 1 day. FU - AlphaQ

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.

Never. I wish. - lovefrombadlands

Once - 1507563

29 Side to Side - Ariana Grande
30 I Can't Give Everything Away - David Bowie
31 Here - Alessia Cara

The chord progression is 1000 times better than the song it was wasted on - allamassal

My god, her voice sounds so shrill. Here, ohhh here ohhh here ohh here oh here oh here oh here! It says that phrase at least 2000000000000000000000000000000 times in the first half of the song! HOW CAN THE RADIO STATIONS PLAY THIS MADNESS?! YOU CALL THIS MUSIC?!

32 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

33 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

34 Mercy - Shawn Mendes

Needs To Be In The Top 5 - VideoGamefan5

Yes - 1507563

35 Starboy - The Weeknd


I hear this only on the weekends ( not a coinsdense)

I love this song. It is electronic with R&B and it totally pulls it of. - JoDBoss

Yes - 1507563

36 Lazarus - David Bowie

The unfunny joke is old, let it die already. - Swellow

37 Don't Mind - Kent Jones


Kent Jones is just another pop star whose 15 minutes of fame have already ended.

38 Controlla - Drake

Second best song after One Dance

Sorry but One Dance isn't the best. It's Forever and Headlines. One Dance is OKAY though - AlphaQ

39 Just Like Fire - Pink

Overplayed but I love it

HATE - mayamanga

THIS - mayamanga

SONG - mayamanga

40 I Took a Pill in Ibiza - Mike Posner

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

I love this song - Neonco31

This song was played thousands of times - 1507563

The SeeB remix is good! I heard it on the EDM radio in 2018. - lovefrombadlands
