The Top Ten

1 Girls Like You - Maroon 5

This song is heavier than any grindcore/black metal material when it comes to squeezing my head. - Alkadikce

I don't hate it, but yeah. It is overplayed. - Misfire

I love this song but it was crazy overplayed especially in august and september

Hate this song. Way too overplayed.

2 The Middle - Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey

Hate it. Worst song ever.

This song plays way to much. It makes want to destroy my radio.

When I visited LA (I'm from Korea) I heard this song like 16 times on my trip to Vegas

I really hate this song in my opinion and your right it is played on the radio like a lot and sometimes I can't get it out of my head so sorry if some of you guys like this song but I don't like and to be honest I like stay the night and clarity better - Lpsgirl

3 Havana - Camila Cabello

Havana ohh nah nope

She pretends to be one of the latin american greats by using latin beats. She effectively brings an end to Cuban music in general. Beny More would be ashamed! (Look him up...)

Finally, I am so glad I can talk about this horrible song. I don't like Perfect and I will say it is very overplayed, but I've heard this crap way more on the radio than Perfect. It is just as overplayed as Slowly (Despacito). This girl's voice is the worst thing ever. Worse than Chad Kroeger. She tries to imitate Rihanna and she is miserable at it and the lyrics make no sense at all. So glad it is off the Billboard charts. I never want to hear this song again for the rest of my life.

That song was extremely overplayed. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

4 I Like It - Cardi B

A good song, but played like every 1-2 hours.

The guy on the second verse gives me a headache

Why overplay a song that will never be good regardless of how many times you play it on the radio, no matter how many time they play this song it will always sound like Trash. Waste of time, play good music for once

I hear this constantly on the radio, and this is somehow #1 on the charts! What has music come to?! - allamassal

V 22 CommentsUListen to Sample
5 Perfect - Ed Sheeran

Its good song but does it really need to be played 10 times a day at least on like every station?

What if we made Thinking Out Loud, but worse?

It's still much better than Shape Of You! - Userguy44

It's overplayed, and to be honest, cliche.

6 In My Feelings - Drake

*Turns on radio*
*Turns off radio*
Screw it. I'm going outside.

This song can rot in an eternal hell - Btd

I HATE this pile of crap made by Drake. Hell, even JUSTIN BIEBER's song BABY is better than this, and that's really saying something! - IceFoxPlayz

*turns on radio
Kiki do you...
*deastroys radio - GinnyWeasleyLuna

7 New Rules - Dua Lipa

My classmates still play this from time to time... - Misfire

I would have probably enjoyed this song if it wasn't played as much as it was on the radio. One time, I heard this song playing on 3 stations at once. - allamassal

This song is getting old.

This song is so annoying.

V 2 CommentsUListen to Sample
8 God's Plan - Drake

They played it EVERY SINGLE time I came into Subway.

Drake's robotic vocals combined with the song being boring overall are why I don't like this song. I also hear this a lot on the radio, and it was even on 2 stations at once one time. - allamassal

I don't like this song - Spongehouse

Gods plan is to destroy drake because he made this overrated song - Hummingbirdf

V 11 CommentsUListen to Sample
9 Psycho - Post Malone

I liked this song before it got overplayed but now I hate it - venomouskillingmachine

I hate Post Malone but this is one of his worst songs EVER!

Yesterday when we were listening to the radio, this song was on 2 stations at once. - allamassal

Jeezus, this happened to me too. Psycho one time played 5 times each day in one week! - MissRWBY202

10 Meant to Be - Bebe Rexha

Worst country song -if you could even call it that- ever. Between this, the middle and girls like you this song was over played. Every radio station had this song all the time and still has it on.

I hate this song, such as the crappy beat and Florida Georgia Line's voice on this. He sounds better on that song with Hailee Steinfeld. - tyrelljanderson

Oh yeah. It's Bebe Rexha! - Userguy44

I barely hear this song on the radio anymore. Thank God! Oh wait, other garbage songs took its place. - allamassal

The Newcomers

? Body - Loud Luxury

I used to love it, now I can't stand it. - tyrelljanderson

UListen to Sample

The Contenders

11 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran

This song always plays SO MUCH and it annoys me to no end. I will turn off the radio if I hear this song start playing! Although I think Good Old Days by Macklemore is WAY MORE overplayed... That should SO be on this list. I used to sort of like it, but now it drives me insane

I actually barely hear either of those songs anymore, and I rarely hear this song on a non-variety station. - allamassal

This was in 2018?

This song is trash! - Userguy44

I haven't heard it in a bit. - AntBlaze

12 What About Us - P!NK

A song with a great meaning, but played way too much. - gucciorisa

I want to blow my brains out thanks P! ink!

Can someone help me get this back in the top 10 please? - allamassal

This Song is SOOO Overrated I cannot even go to SCHOOL without hearing this junk - XxMontrealxXRBLX

13 Thunder - Imagine Dragons

My opinion is a bit biased because I am a diehard fan of Imagine Dragons, but I actually like the meaning of this song. I think the chorus could've been a bit more creative than just, Thunder, feel the thunder, lightning then the thunder over and over. But in my opinion, this song is pretty inspirational - TheInsomniac

Believer was good. This, on the other hand... - Cyri

Jesus Christ I hear this song at least twice a day. And the worst part is, it always gets stuck in your head!

Imagine Dragons are good, but this song is mediocre. - Userguy44

14 Never Be the Same - Camila Cabello

Camila Cabello is one of those artists that tries to look hot so that boys will like her, but is a bad singer. This is definitely one of her worst songs, and I hope that people will realize that she is not a great singer. I loved Fifth Harmony, but I don't like her voice. That's why I was more than happy when she left.

I don't like this - tyrelljanderson

This song's irritating. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

The invasion was actually unbearable when it was big. It's now faded, and it sounds like a seal trying to mate.

15 Let You Down - NF

This song was overplay and it was the worst song that play on the radio lately.

This and Lie are so overplayed that I hear this and Lie in my head. - B1ueNew

I don’t think so, I don’t even know this song.

Ok, so I might be a bit harsh on this song because of a friend. So, I have a friend who’s obsessed with NF, depressing quotes, and trying to be edgy even though she already has the world at her feet. Girl, ilysm but seriously? She keeps saying things like “NF is so sad! He actually cried in one of his songs” and “This is the saddest song ever! ” And I understand that the poor guy has been through so much, but her trying so hard to relate to the song but failing because everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, loves her so much just ticks me off. Her edgy phase was supposed to have been in seventh grade. Sorry for the little vent lol

Annoying as hell

Isn't this already on here? - allamassal

Duplicate - StarlightSpanks

17 Lights Down Low - Max

Damn I hate this song so much!

Lights Down Low is pretty decent. But the radio plays it OVER and OVER and OVER, but the rate is becoming slower to where I live. - MissRWBY202

This is a worse version of something Shawn Mendes would do. Hate it.

All I hear is the chorus

V 2 CommentsUListen to Sample
18 Finesse - Bruno Mars

The only good song in 2018.

Seriously?! I hardly hear this song on the radio ever! The Middle came out not too long ago, and that song is already way more overplayed than this.

No I only heard it once on the radio

I love it but it is kinda overplayed - StarlightSpanks

V 2 CommentsUListen to Sample
19 No Tears Left to Cry - Ariana Grande

I really dislike this song because this song on my radio plays 24 times or something.

Getting sick of the tune

This song is good but its overplayed - Hummingbirdf

This song is not even good either - 123fortandbree

20 Attention - Charlie Puth

Starting to hear this more than Shape Of You at this point now lol - StarlightSpanks

Yesterday, at one point, when we were going to the beach, this was on 2 stations at once. - 6/17/2018 - allamassal

This was made in 2018? - NightJinx

I barely hear this. Plus I love this song. However I only know two verses:
You just want Attention
You don’t want my heart
That’s the only clear words I know lol. :) Fox the Rogue

What a talentless man who happens to be lucky because anybody could do what he does

This song is stupid and annoying just another dull pop/rap song no thank you - BreakFastBeast2005


UListen to Sample
22 Rockstar - Post Malone

Great song! I don't know what’s wrong with you people - Amaimon

It’s horrible, overly auto tuned, and annoying, but I don’t hear it that much.

So this is how popular this guy is:

I was at our schools talent show and a teacher said she was going to a Post Malone concert.

Everyone cheered even though no one knew what was going on

Hey at least it was better than look what you made me do - LifeIsAPolaroid

Taylor Swift is just ANNOYING! - Amaimon

24 Look What You Made Me Do - Taylor Swift

Awful awful song. Just awful. I can't stand to hear a second of this. I would rather hear Baby 100 times in a row than hear a millisecond of this. - tyrelljanderson

This was probably one of the most hated songs of 2018. - IceFoxPlayz

Never heard it in 2018. - MrCoolC

I haven't even heard this on the radio since about October or November 2017, so not overplayed in 2018. - allamassal

25 Sorry Not Sorry - Demi Lovato

I hate this garbage so much. - tyrelljanderson

New music is worse...

I'm not sorry because this song was created - Hummingbirdf

By now all 2017 fall hits have all but died out, except this one (and What About Us, but that's a different story). I still hear this twice in a car ride often. - allamassal

26 Pray For Me - The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar

Only popular because of 2 overrated rappers/artists and it's from an overrated movie - B1ueNew

My gosh I heard this so much back in February - B1ueNew

I only started to hear it a lot around March/April, although I did hear it once in February. - allamassal

Good song though - judo8alex

Someone shoot me
Someone kill me
Someone poison me

27 Friends - Marshmello & Anne-Marie

Another overrated song. Everyone in my school sung this awful song when it came out. It isn't even a song, it's just an immature Anne-Marie spitting dumb lyrics into a microphone. - tyrelljanderson

THis song is also annoying and the lyrics are god awful - BreakFastBeast2005

Marshmello is creepy. I don't want to hear this song anywhere. - Target

Anne-Marie sounds really immature here, why is this getting more and more overplay? - StarlightSpanks

30 I Love the Smelly Feet - Submarine Man

Awful. Sounds like a rip off of Kanye West's I Love It, but a worse version. Great. You ruined it more than those awful music channels did. I never hear this on the radio, and I never want to. - tyrelljanderson

This isn't even on the radio! - Userguy44

31 I Love It - Kanye West & Lil Pump

Oh my god, I actually hate it. I don't even know how they made a clean version of this, it seems impossible but I heard they did. Just don't play this song in front of your kids please

I only heard this once, and it was blaring out of someone else's car. - allamassal

They literally had to redo the song with different lyrics. That’s how bad the explicit version is.

32 Lucid Dreams - Juice WRLD

I like this song. - IceFoxPlayz

I also like this song.One of my friends is a huge fan of Juice WRLD by the way(But I don't think you cared about the last part) - DarkBoi-X

To be honest with you, this IS overplayed, but it’s probably the best rap song I’ve ever heard. Great lyrics, great singing voice, great everything. This song is growing on me. I can’t stop singing it.

33 Him & I - G-Eazy & Halsey

I like this song only because of Halsey...

G-Eazy ruins the song for me - BreakFastBeast2005

I heard it all the time in January-May then I didn't hear it again until September 24, on the way to the first day of my piano class. I heard it again on the 1st my second time at piano class... - AntBlaze

35 What Lovers Do - Maroon 5

It was kind of overplayed back in December 2017 and January 2018, but I barely hear it anymore. I'd give anything to at least have this playing constantly instead of I Like It and In My Feelings. - allamassal

This song is actually really catchy, the only problem is that the lyrics are kinda sexual but the sexualness is very subtle, so I will give this song a thumbs up. - Patronus

I like this. I only heard it on the radio twice in my life.

I kinda love this song

Standart playlist for normal radio in November 2018:
A Ariana Grande song
Girls like You
Lie or Let You Down
And repeat it all over again. - B1ueNew

How is this crap not here? - B1ueNew

+B1ueNew Don’t call it crap. NF is good and can spit a bar without cussing or saying anything innapropriate. I do agree this is getting a little overboard with airplay

40 God is a Woman - Ariana Grande

My family are very offended by this song. He's a man, not a woman. - tyrelljanderson

My family is offended by this song - GinnyWeasleyLuna

It's not just overplayed but when a Christian hears this for the first time, he or she would be offended by it, but when he or she understands it, he or she might believe it's wrong to take biblical references into a sex song. It's catchy alright, but here's a lesson. Never put inappropriate messages in such catchy songs.

Or maybe you all should grow up, it's not like you shouldn't listen to inappropriate sings unless you are 8 years old. - DaisyandRosalina

It not just this but all of Ariana songs are overplayed the worst station and I won't swear is Z100 in NY there must be her parents because over 95% of the music there play is only Ariana Grande its way to much.

Really great song that I will probably never dislike, but I'd appreciate it if the radio stations didn't play this four times every hour. - Atham

46 In My Blood - Shawn Mendes

This song was played so much, my siblings are so fed up, because on top of that, I'm so obsessed with him. This song is overplayed for a REASON: Because Shawn decided to take a huge step, and express his suffering with anxiety. This song can be played a thousand times, and I will stay for the entire thing, while singing along, without faltering or yawning even ONCE.

Way too overplayed - LilliamPumpernickel

Such a good song, I love Shawn Mendes.

This song doesn't really play that much anymore, but I wish I heard it as much as I hear I Like It now. - allamassal

48 Bad at Love - Halsey

I actually heard this song twice today on the same station (written August 14, 2018). Still, in my opinion this is probably the best song on the radio now besides In My Blood. - allamassal

I actually hear this good song more than Him & I now (but only on one station). - allamassal

I hear this song so much on the radio its annoying really. She sounds like an idiot singing this and halsey IS NOT an idiot. Not even close.

I respect your opinion on this song, but at least you agree with me that Halsey is not an idiot. - allamassal

I don't think this song was really played that much, at least where I live. - allamassal

This is never played to be honest..

I never hear Kendrick Lamar on my radio... - KingSlayer93316

Another song I barely even hear anymore. - allamassal

I liked this song at first but it is seriously getting old because of how overplayed it is. If Kendrick had one more verse maybe I’d like it better. Every time I hear SZA’s screeching I want to jump off a cliff
