Top 10 Most Overplayed Songs of 2018 and 2017

Songs from last year and this year (so far) that have been quite annoyingly overplayed. I don't hate any of the following songs but they're kind of annoying to hear after a while. I'm only including songs released in either 2017 (last year) or 2018 (the current year so far).

The Top Ten

1 Praying - Kesha Praying - Kesha

Exactly SomePersonYouHate

This song is so overplayed, and makes me wonder how so many people love this song.

Every girl in high school sings this on when it comes on the radio, so annoying.

I dislike it more every time I hear this song.

2 Look What You Made Me Do - Taylor Swift Look What You Made Me Do - Taylor Swift

This song is terrible. I have gone from not minding her and in fact liking some of her earlier songs to not liking her anymore. So look what you made me do. (Pun not intended) - Randomator

Stop playing this garbage!

Hearing this once is enough to call it overplayed. - DCfnaf

Just plain horrible

3 Finesse - Bruno Mars Finesse - Bruno Mars

I like this song but its overplayed

This is so good, though it’s starting to play a lot. - DCfnaf

4 What About Us - P!NK

This song seems to be fading away much slower than any other song that I can think of (except Shape of You of course, because that was the #1 song of 2017), because we still hear it twice or even 3 times in an outing sometimes. And it's been 8 months since it was released. - allamassal

5 Body Like a Back Road - Sam Hunt

So awful - DCfnaf

It was mainly strong in digital song sales but it was also pretty overplayed as well
Sadly - StarlightSpanks

Overplayed to the point that I can’t even listen to it anymore - Randomator

6 Let You Down - NF

I LOVE this song. NF is such a good rapper! Also, why is Havana on here? It does get played a lot, but it's not bad yet! It's amazing! My favorite song, actually. So why is this on the list?

I didn't hear this at all. And I listen to the rap music station! - hiphopgod

Although they probably play songs like that in that type of environment to try and help people with issues. I did recently read that article on hip-hop therapy - hiphopgod

I don’t even know this song.

7 Good Old Days - Macklemore

This gets better every time I hear it!

8 That’s What I Like - Bruno Mars
9 Bodak Yellow - Cardi B


Horrible song, with useless phrases. The singer has a horrible accent when she talks.

So overplayed

God this is horrible. Shes ugly too *hurls*

10 Believer - Imagine Dragons

Overrated and not that great. - DCfnaf

Good song but overplayed

This song is so overplayed. I agree. - styLIShT

I Do NOT like Imagine Dragons.. like, ew - EliHbk


The Contenders

11 Despacito - Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee

It should be way higher it was so overplayed


I don’t hear it anymore.

12 Bad at Love - Halsey

I hear this way too much. I hear "Him and I" way more though. - DCfnaf

I remember when it was, please be played again!

This song is garbage

Oh my lord, it felt like you couldn't go 16 seconds without hearing this crap. It's an ok song, but I heard it so much that it died from old age - hiphopgod

When? I don't remember hearing this song that much, or maybe that's just my horrible memory of these things. Anyway, your comment describes how I felt about What About Us. - allamassal

13 Havana - Camila Cabello

Very overplayed on the radio stations I listen to

I don't like this song - Userguy44

I love this song.

Havana oooh na na. - Swampert02

14 Sorry Not Sorry - Demi Lovato

I hate this song! It's so mean!

15 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran

Almost all old 2017 hits have died out by now except for this one. Yep, I still hear this once per 2 days at least. - StarlightSpanks

Most irritating song award heard so many times it's the worst song of all time

16 Strip that Down - Liam Payne
17 God's Plan - Drake
18 River - Eminem

What. I've never heard this on the radio before - Midevilnight

At this point, even more overplayed than Havana. - StarlightSpanks

Been overplayed since December of 2017, been out for 9 months, didn’t even make number 1.

20 New Rules - Dua Lipa

I would have enjoyed this song more if not for overplay. - allamassal

Honestly, tins is one of the best songs of 2017.

21 Him & I - G Eazy & Halsey

I wish. It’s an amazing song, and I’ve only heard it on the radio once.


22 I Like Me Better - Lauv

I hear it on the radio every single hour

Great song. Not overplayed never heard it on radio.

23 Never Be the Same - Camila Cabello

Stop playing this song please

I really like this song, but it's starting to play very often. - allamassal

I hate this song.

The Melody is just raising the note of the last syllable for several lines

Immature song. Selena was doing fantastic with bad liar. Then this came out.

This song’s on here twice.
