21 Shake It Off - Taylor Swift

I can't believe what Taylor Swift has become. If you don't know, listen to this, and then listen to a song off her oldest album. She's no longer that "country girl next door". But on to the song, T-Swizzle (that name used to be a joke but seeing as she's attempting to rap now... ) finally addresses her haters. How? By spending all kinds of time and money writing a song, recording it, publicize it, making a music video, and publicizing that, all to show how much she just didn't care! Awesome job, T-Swizzle. You continue to blow away everyone's expectations!

I'm SO sick of this STUPID song! Whenever I say shake it up or something like that this boy in my art class (who looks like a nerd) but acts like he's all that started singing it! And every time I hear it on the radio, it annoys the HECK out of me! Then my older brother decided to annoy me and play her STUPID song.

Taylor's other songs were decent but this one?! THIS IS THE WORST!

This needs to be much higher on the list. This is the worst Taylor Swift song ever.

22 Wasted - Tiesto
23 Achy Breaky 2 - Buck 22
24 Drunk in Love - Beyonce

Don't get me wrong, I love Beyonce and I like this song, but it gets so annoying hearing it on the radio all the time. !

25 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson

This song is garbage and has now racked up 14 weeks at #1 when it is tying with the legendary We Belong Together by Mariah Carey!

Everybody acts like it is the best song in years when its not the lyrics are so irrlevent and random and quite cheesy come on even 6 years ago there was better music maybe even this year there was better music just dig deeper

Overrated? This song is great! - RickyReeves

Are you kidding me? This is the dead worst song currently in Billboard 100! - SelfDestruct

Yeah, it is pretty overrated - micahisthebest

27 The Rains of Castamere - Jackie Evancho

Jackie Evancho has one of the most beautiful voices of the 21th century. She grabs onto your heart and never lets go. Jackie can make even the toughest men cry. Her voice is a gift from God. May He continue to bless her.

This is an underrated song

Not really catchy, but not annoying either. Doesn't get enough airplay to make it annoying. Jackie makes it a work of art. - BobG

I though this was game of thrones

28 You & I - One Direction

This band may be a bit overrated, but this is an underrated song

If anything this song is underrated - ProPanda

29 Everything is Awesome - Jo Li

Tegan and Sara too. Both versions are overrated.

The term awesome such a childish term

30 Hello Kitty - Avril Lavigne

Ohh. Don't. Even. Get. Me. Started. She used to be rocking, how she sings about worthless crap, a sleepover? Getting drunk and kissing guys? Also, the video is so racist, she has Japanese girls living up to the stereotype, just as ornaments.

This song is so daft! Avril Lavigne is not as good as she once was... I miss her old style! - keyson

BURN IT WITH FLAMES! No seriously, the music video felt stereotypical, and having a bit of Japanese blood, when I watched Kids React to this, I felt appalled. I liked Girlfriend and here's to Never Growing Up Avril Lavigne, not Hello Kitty Avril Lavigne!

This has stupid lyrics!

31 Really Don't Care - Demi Lovato

I actually thought this song was pretty good!

32 Magic - Coldplay

I see why people don't like it, but I love its simplicity. - Songsta41

Coldplay is an amazing band it shouldn't be here

I like this song. Besides, it's not even overrated.

I like Coldplay and all that but... really?

33 Stay with Me - Sam Smith

How is this song so low! This was absolutely the worst song of 2014 and way overrated; absolutely boring and dreadful to hear this on the radio all the time. It did not deserve any grammys especially with talent like Sia and Ed sheeran

How is this song so low? This song isn't even sad and yet people say it is. All it is is some guy crying about how he had a last night stand with someone and he fell in love, that's not sad. -. -

It didn't deserve a grammy. Thinking out loud was much better - Zab

This song bores me and hearing this getting overplayed...I don't know what to say!

34 Counting Stars - OneRepublic

This was 2013. And it was underrated. - PositronWildhawk

This song was in 2013. I like this song - RickyReeves

None of OneRepublic's songs can ever be overrated. It is impossible.

How was this song overrated?!

35 Young Blood - Sophie Ellis-Bextor
36 No Flex Zone - Rae Sremmurd

The Rae Sremmurd-ers sound like they're 12. Also, this song makes zero sense.

This song makes me want to grab a Piranha fish and let it feast on my leg - RickyReeves

For some reason, this is liked. By a lot of people actually. - WonkeyDude98

37 Gas Pedal - Sage the Gemini

The popularity it deserves just blew off before 2014. So how is this awesome song overrated. - SelfDestruct

38 Blank Space - Taylor Swift

Decent song, but at my school (5-6 grade), it came on at school during gym. Suddenly, EVERYONE started singing it. (I'm a man, so this song gets very obnoxious for me! ) Yeah, when my girlfriend started singing part of it during lunch, it was great, but my class! Now I know why Starbucks is so overrated!

Needs to be higher, too many people like this song. What's so good about it? Taylor is basically bragging how rich and beautiful she is and mind controlling. Worst song ever. Hate this song with burning passion.

"Bragging about how rich and beautiful she is and mind controlling"

- Some random dude who died because he doesn't know what self-parody is. - WonkeyDude98

This is my favorite song ever...

This song is awesome!

39 Prayer In C - Robin Schulz

I think it is a good song like Waves it is underrated

Probably this song is more terrible than Waves.

40 Stolen Dance - Milky Chance

Understated does NOT equate good. Just because the song is "simple" and "alternative-y" doesn't make it good. The vocals and lyrics are weak at best, and the instrumentation is overly simple, just an annoying guitar loop and some drums. Hopefully, this song will go away soon.

It was good at first but ruined by being overplayed.

Overplay, killing songs since the radio was first invented, folks.
