Most Overplayed Songs of 2017


The Top Ten

1 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran

This song is horrendous. Why? Some people complain about the subject matter. Unless it's handled in a mature way, the lyricist has failed. Not to mention, it's one of the more annoying pop tunes I've heard. Especially the singing and "humming." This song is, simply put, trash. Don't support Ed Sheeran. He's not a good song writer. You should only support song writers who write something that is well-put together. And a predictable, annoying, boring pop tune fails in every way, shape, and form. - JBDBIB_Baerman

I listened to that whole album. While some songs were, in the end, not BAD, or even decent, the album itself wasn't good in my opinion. - JBDBIB_Baerman

I've heard this song THREE times in the last hour. It's driving me INSANE. I couldn't even bring myself to watch his cameo on Game of Thrones. Nothing against the guy, he's very talented, but I'm so over-saturated on his stuff.

Yes they are always playing this song like every three songs! Why? At first thought it was cute but now when I hear that xylophone start up I just turn off the radio

When I heard it on the radio, I said:,It's on the radio now? ". Can't wait until every teenage girl will cry over that the song is deleted from every website and does not play on any radio stations. - MinecraftHater

It's a good song, until you hear it so much.

2 Despacito - Luis Fonsi

Another generic and effortless spanish summer hit that will be played on the radio every 2 minutes... - DaisyandRosalina

To be fair, this song wasn't intended for kids to listen to, they just heard all the older people were, but even they don't know what it means. The song itself is innocent unless you look up the english translation. Bieber did ruin though 100%. Not to be racist at all but he is the stereotypical spoiled little white boy dirtbag, and can't pull of the romantic latino vibe. It just wasn't intended for people like him. - cat_f

Why was this song as huge as it was? Seriously, I have never understood. Was it because of Justin Bieber (I would not be surprised)? Was it because of how upbeat it was in such a dower year? Was it because we needed a song to compete with "Shape of You" (which is also a very overplayed song)? I do not know. All I know is that I do not want to hear this song again and if I do, I will want to throw up.

My mom loves this song and I don't know why? - Bradyn

3 Look What You Made Me Do - Taylor Swift

This is just an example of music today, and that joke where she's dead, yet nonstop playing.

She disses everyone in this - MLPFan

I would rather eat glass than listen to this song

This is actually one of my least favorite songs this year - codydoestuff

4 That's What I Like - Bruno Mars

I Hear This Song Too Much

Decent song, but I kept hearing it on the radio - VideoGamefan5

I rather hear 24K than this - ParkerFang

5 Closer - The Chainsmokers

Just overrated. End of story. It had its time being cool but just overrated and overplayed now - Randomator

Heard it once. Heard it enough. - skadoosh_007

STOP INSULTING CLOSER! I love closer so much and Halsey is the best thing ever! This song being overplayed is a good thing! The Chainsmokers aren't that good but Halsey make this song amazing like she is!

Yes, it's overplayed. That's not a bad thing though. Hearing Halsey makes my day. - lovefrombadlands

6 I Don't Wanna Live Forever - Zayn & Taylor Swift

First time I heard this song, and discovered how atrocious it is, I will never ever think of hearing this ever, first thing I know it's on, I change the station immediately, that's how much I hate this song. Everything about it I hate, my least favorite song of the year, and possibly for my life.

Every time I turn on the radio: "Been sittin' eyes wide open behind these four walls, hoping you call" GETS ON MY NERVES. Kill me if it plays again - Raadicool

Not only is this a bad song (0.5/5), it also fares terribly against overplay. The beat is, surprise, flat nothing. This song's overplay makes sense. After all, if you're going to get two names as big as Zayn Malik and Taylor Swift, who would've thought iHeartRadio would put this in their top fifteen while this song was getting shoved back on the charts along with other hits that should've stayed in the wintertime (think Bad And Boujee).

Well, who WOULD want to live forever after hearing this song, much less making it?

8 Everyday - Ariana Grande

I actually like this song. The beat is catchy, she sounds good in the song as always, and I like Future's parts even though pretty much all he says throughout the song is everyday. - PerfectlyPink1210

Am I the only one, who actually likes this song?

This song is amazing it's catchy - HeyItzGrace

This song is plain stupid, espically future's retarded verses, what a loser song - VideoGamefan5

Well the lyrics are stupid but the beat is so catchy, they should of made greedy a single instead of everyday - HeyItzGrace

9 Little Do You Know - Annie Leblanc and Hayden Summerall

A great song...The lyrics was awesome...Music was so romantic and should be in top three!

The best of this whole list,i never heard of the singers but I will just say that they have talent

I mean, this song is awesome. GO HANNIE! So romantic...this is not overrated at all.

10 Body Like a Back Road - Sam Hunt

The fact that it is on the charts is enough of a reason. - DCfnaf

The beat sounds like a preschool song's beat. Obnoxious sexual song with no talent. - Lunala

UGH - growlbunny

And what exactly is this song deserving of existance for, and why is it played every hour on car, store, resturant, etc. radios? - Lucretia

The Newcomers

? Love So Soft - Kelly Clarkson

Of course, this song doesn't get played that often anymore because everyone except Kelly Clarkson fangirls who like anything with her name on it got sick of hearing this song. But six weeks ago, you couldn't go anywhere or watch Nick Music for more than 10 minutes without hearing this song. First, I thought this song was okay. Then I thought it was bad. Then I thought it was garbage. My faith in her as a singer was severely shaken after listening to this garbage. - allamassal

? Mi Gente - J Balvin

Most overplayed song on the radio right now apart from that P! nk song. - allamassal

The Contenders

11 Paris - The Chainsmokers

Even though the year is in its beginning, car radio has been really overplaying these - VideoGamefan5

Ever thought "Closer" is trash? Maybe you've never heard this song - TheSuperBanana

This is a good song with meaning and it has an amazing beat! 10/10. - lovefrombadlands

The Chainsmokers has ONE good song, and this is not it. - growlbunny

15 I'm the One - DJ Khaled

Not only is it overplayed, but it is overrated. Why? The first time I listened to it, was because my friend forced me to. After that, I barely survived. I did not want to EVER hear this garbage, AGAIN. Unfortunately, it played on the radio OVER AND OVER AGAIN. Also, it played on my math teacher's phone when she provided music for us while we were working.

Annoying asf

16 Why - Sabrina Carpenter

Sabrina had shown true colours.


17 Juju on that Beat - Zay Hilfigerrr & Zayion McCall

Any Roblox game that has to do with music you'll hear this annoying song

18 Ex's & Oh's - Elle King

Not. 2017 song - 1507563

Still plays twice every hour, somtimes even more than Despacito. This list didn't SAY it HAD to be realesed in 2017. It still drives me crazy!

19 Heavy - Linkin Park & Kiiara

Is It Really Overplayed? - VideoGamefan5

Never hear this one... only really on the alternative station - Lucretia
