Top 10 Most Overused (and Annoying) Words Online

The use of certain words that we use unnecessarily. LOL. Especially on chats, MySpace comments, texting, etc.

The Top Ten Most Overused (and Annoying) Words Online

1 Overrated

Overrated: a word idiots use to describe things that they hate, not because it's bad, but because it's popular.

(People are entitled to their own opinions, but I think it's stupid to hate something or someone for that reason) - Kefka

Guys, overrated means "rated too much than it should be" which doesn't mean bad, it just means "doesn't deserve this much love"

Overrated =/= Bad

For example, Queen and Eminem are overrated but they good, Led Zeppelin and Linkin Park are overrated and bad. Kanye West is not overrated and is good, 6ix9ine is not overrated and trash. There. - AlphaQ

You know what's annoying? When people keep on saying something's overrated over and over to the point that it becomes overhated. - Misfire


lol is too overused same for lmao one time I beated this guy on combat arm and he say lmao you suc and rofl I think this guy laugh wehn I say there this guy he gifted me two perm weapon don't you think he generouas then come two lol and one rofl and five lmao - 123wmx

as annoying as "like" in speaking - usmc650736

used like every five minutes - annabanna29

I hate the people who use LOL/ROFL/LMAO and F***.
C'mon we listen these things billions of times and I'm so tired of it.

3 Gay

Gay is a girl's name. It also means "happy". The correct term for people who are not heterosexual is HOMOSEXUAL.

Again, it's only bad if used unironically and in a hateful way, not if it's being used jokingly. - DarkBoi-X

People see being gay as the most obscene think in the world. You don't like it when your persecuted for something about you. How would you feel if you were gay and you were seen as the lowest thing on earth. It also sucks that religious books tell people to hate them and kill them simply for who they are.

Especially Christianity. Just read Leviticus. People shouldn't be wasting so much effort on taking away gays rights and been nasty. If you're not gay you have no rights over a gay's life.

The lowest people on earth are pedophiles not gays anyway. At least taking away their rights will protect children.

We Christians don't hate gays just because we disagree with their lifestyles.

It's only bad if you discriminate gay people, not if you use the word casually. - AlphaQ

4 Cringe

This should EASILY be #1.
I remember those times when I used to hear someone calling something "cringe," "cringy," and "cringeworthy."
I was fine at first, though I've always find it stupid. But then, as it noticeably got ridiculously overused, I just wanted to say "oh my god just SHUT UP! "
Like, seriously, if you want to say that you dislike something, don't use a word that's not synonymous with the word "bad." It literally should not that difficult. - Jasmine21064

It's not a dumb word honestly, it's just that a lot of 12 year olds use it the wrong way. - AlphaQ

This word has been beaten into the ground so bad just looking at it pisses me off, especially all the people mooching off cringe comps and making people be embarrassed to have fun.

No one:
12 year olds when they see something they dislike a little bit: O MAHGOD CRINGE - AlphaQ

Cringe in the Past:
"To cower or shrink in fear or disgust."

Cringe in the Present Day:
"To define something that you dislike or do not understand. Internet trolls use this word as an insult towards people in fandoms, with bad grammar, or both combined. Trolls, edgelords, and children also use this word to describe memes on some occasions."

5 Autistic

Listen, folks. Autism is a real thing. It doesn't mean "stupid" or "cringeworthy". Rather, it is a mental condition/disorder that acts as what I call a "tilt". One side (for me, existential and linguistic intelligence) is better than average, at the cost of social skills. Now, don't get me wrong. It can be a curse far more often than a blessing. This includes when people use it to insult random things. It's offensive and outright cruel. - Cyri

As someone else on the spectrum, I agree. It's insulting and stereotypical and I cringe whenever someone uses it incorrectly. - al1070

Not only is this overused, but is morally wrong. It isn't their fault if someone is autistic. So don't use it as an insult. If you highly believe autism just makes someone look dumb, then that disgusts me, because I have high function autism myself, and I have an above average IQ. - SpectralOwl

*climbs up on Empire State building holding a megaphone, and holds the megaphone up to my mouth*
AUTISTIC =/= STUPID! - RoseWeasley

Guys, we should seriously stop using this as an insult! Please check the dictionary for the meaning before you even use this word! - EllenseaFornost


Ah, the replies I get from any classic rock fan whenever I express my opinion, sweet eh? - AlphaQ

What I hear from modern cartoon fans,modern game fans and modern music fans all the time. Yeah...these idiots think that everything modern is God's gift to the universe,while anything clssic/nostalgic is garbage.

I have been told this once by a commenter on YouTube. I can't tell you how angry I got, I was so angry I could even turn to Super Saiyan! I've never been angrier than I was that day.

Keep yourself safe - Not_A_Weeaboo

7 Cancer

Can you guys stop getting so triggered over everything. Cancerous is a term that can also be used for stuff that is annoying and sucks but is all over the place. - DarkBoi-X

My grandpa has cancer, this word is offensive to those who have it or know someone who has it.

It is pretty much used by edgelords, still not the best word to use. - AlphaQ

Whatever happened to cancer being defined as a serious health disease that people are suffering from rather than a stupid term to describe anything people hate. This can actually be very disrespectful to people who are suffering from cancer and those who had to go through losing their loved ones that suffered from cancer. - HoldenFanatic

8 First!

God so annoying. And it's even worse when these comments are the top comments on YouTube videos and have over 1,000 likes. - DaWyteNight

For the 8478772139th time, no one cares. - SpectralOwl

YouTube comment sections in a nutshell. - Userguy44

What are you first for?


SJW: Kill all men/cis/straights, all men are evil, extreme views, etc.

Not an SJW: Someone with common human decency/someone who wants actual justice.

Type it and it feels like your IQ is dropping logarithmically.
Most people who say it put an apostrophe at the end, too...cringe! - emraldYE


10 OMG

It was overused in like 2016 - VeganTurtle

Who uses this anymore?

Nobody says this anymore, this word is so 2015. - DarkBoi-X

Yeah nobody uses this anymore.

The Newcomers

? Thanos
? Joker

The Contenders

11 Racist

Liberals call Trump this all the time and it lost it's meaning. - GamerXS

Let's just all get along, no matter the color of skin or where you are from. it's not the 1800s

This word is so overused and annoying - christangrant

No I'm not I'm just saying this word is overused I honestly don't care about what color someone is everyone is equal. Plus where am I being racist in that comment? you're an example of why this word is overused - christangrant

The word has lost it's meaning

12 WTF

What is one supposed to reply to this?

Usless fact of the day! When reading lol your brain needs to process it but whe reading what it' automatic.

Watch that family - VeganTurtle

What Why is this so high! - Elina

13 Sexist

Tumblr has left the chat. - Cyri

Why does this even exist? why does sex (gender) matter? stop fighting and get along. it's not the 1800s.

14 Snowflake

Used by Republicans to take down any other candidate party making themselves look professional and so they protect trump even though trump is a dumbass b! tch racist narcissist xenophobic self centered idiotic loser and is supported by brainwashed folks who don't understand the negativity of the disapproval of a human being trump - 0w0uwu

Ah the insult, a rather stupid word to use as an insult.
Remember when snowflake used to just mean snow.

nah - Crizz

15 Sucks

Can't stand this damn word

This word sucks. - Userguy44

People who complain about words suck. - AlphaQ

This word SUCKS( see what I did there) - Dragon12604

16 Daddy

Nothing wrong with calling your dad this, but please stop calling fictional characters and school shooters "Daddy." - RoseWeasley

I've been called "daddy" by my own classmates, its creepy but funny at the same time. Oh, and its always used in dumb fan fictions. - AlphaQ

You know what, I am sick to death of seeing "daddy" being used in comment sections of YouTube videos and in tumblr posts/urls by younger people. It's disgusting. Thanks to this, a lot of people (including me) have been thrown off calling our dads 'daddy' since it will make us look like freaks. Oh and a message for them: FATHER'S DAY IS NOT FOR YOUR CREEPY OBSESSION. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Everyone calls people this and I'm just confused, like what is the point?

17 Duh

those annoying girls flirt with this word, it makes them very annoying

like when they said it "duh, you're ugly, duh, that's gross, duh, that's crazy, duh, I hate it

my most hated word ever - ronluna

People sound arrogant when they say this. - Userguy44

Just no. Don't 'Duh' me it seriously makes me want to hint you as hard as I possibly can.

Screw this word - Pokemonfan10

18 Bae

Yes, one of my friends (now my enemy) used to use this too much. "HOW YOU GOING BAE? WHERE'S MY BAE? CAN I HAVE A HUG, BAE? " - WheresMyGuitarPick

It actually means poop in Danish.

Bae is so useless there is already enough "love names" and you wouldn't want to call who you love poop

This should be number 1. Pronounce it right, or don't even make it a thing.

19 Liberal

Liberals, what cool people. Or at least better than Conservatives. Honestly many ignorant people think Liberals and SJW's are the same even though they are different - DarkBoi-X

Why is this an insult at all? caring about people as a whole is bad? why?

I'm not even a liberal and dear god the word has pretty much lost all it's meaning. - Swellow

20 Troll

Nowadays it seems like it's the only word people think they can use to describe any negativity whatsoever. Really, really stupid. I've been called a troll on YouTube for telling a user to stop arguing with another. Really, really, REALLY stupid.

This word died around the time that Rage Comics died. I hate the sudden influx of people using this word, thinking they're "trendy" and "cool" for using a word strictly used online. Any time I see the word "troll" on this website I cringe because it's old and dead and needs to stay that way. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

But trolls are amazing. - DarkBoi-X

Not a big deal. - Userguy44


I've actually never seen anyone use this word, both online and in real life. - RiverVibeZ

YOLO= Carpe diem (seize the day in Latin) for stupid people

Yolo is so dumb

YOLO = I Am An Idiot. Anyone who says this is saying I Am An Idiot.

22 Homophobe

WARNING: If you can't handle an opinion, don't bother reading on and getting offended. This word is so damn over used! I actually don't just hate the over usage of this word. It also makes no SENSE! If you have any intellgence whatsoever, you will recognize that 'Phobia' is a suffix that is strictly used to mean 'a fear of something'. Not 'something that you find nasty or unnecessary'. So if you think about it logically, this word is dumb. As for another irritating and over-stated comment, 'Being gay isn't a choice.'. Being gay is in fact a choice. An animal or human being is designed to be physically able to reproduce with the opposite sex. NOT designed to be able to reproduce with whatever gender they prefer at that time. No animal is 'born gay' even if there are same sex animals that care for abandoned babies. The animal CHOOSES that life for itself. Just as us humans do. However, a persn can decide to date among their own gender. Also, before every comment calls me 'predjudiced' ...more

It gets annoying - Crizz

Its not a choice, do straight people choose to be straight?

Technically being gay can be a choice but for the most part it's not. - Crizz

Most obnoxiously overused word ever. - Soulstealer

23 F***

It's not that overused on childish sites, if you go on Reddit though expect some f-bombs but on Tumblr it's a whole other level. - AlphaQ

I'm not offended by it, but it is really overused. It loses all expression. - Cyri

Should be #1. Bad words annoy me so much. Why can't everyone be nice and use nice words?

Yes I'm always getting mad at others because they curse every 2 seconds - DrayTopTens

If bad words offend you, you need to grow up. - shiftaltkey

24 Savage

Online, the word savage means going up to a dude from the hood and kick them in the balls. - VeganTurtle

Savage nowadays just means annoying behavior that is somehow considered as awesome. It really isn't. Annoying is annoying no matter what it is. - NuMetalManiak

Another amazing word. - DarkBoi-X

Amazing word - AlphaQ

25 Epic Fail!

I want to punch someone in the face when I hear this the fad just won't end and it's not even cool. - happyhappyjoyjoy

Say this all the time...

This fad is an epic fail! - Ashes

Hate it.. - Ananya

26 lol

The most annoying one (particularly when used sarcastically) ever since it was introduced, and it just won't die. I'm surprised it isn't ranked higher.

It's not annoying but you see it all the time

It's a guy cheering. - Cyri

"LOL" is so overused that it's here twice. And yes, I feel like it's overused because it ruins the meaning if the slang abbreviation is used to respond to: EVERY. SINGLE. MESSSAGE. - Kwaysar

27 Ripoff

All I hear is Fortnite battle royals is ripoff of PUBG(it is a ripoff, but people keep repeating it) - VeganTurtle

28 -Ass

Goodass, fatass, kickass... Can you stop adding ass to every word?!

Any word that has ass in it is seriously annoying. The word badass is extremely overused.

What a Bad-Ass idea. (It's bad.)

This amazing ass word shouldn't be on this strange ass list. - AlphaQ

29 Elitist

I've seen this word a few times and I'm guilty of using it to describe people who are pricks about music. - shiftaltkey

Aka a word that has no meaning because everyone can be considered one - christangrant

30 Literally

"i am literally dying" cool I'm in the hospital with 4 minutes left of my life, you are fine

This is literally the most annoying thing ever. I am literally dying inside reading this. - Cyri

I hate the fact this word is losing its meaning thanks to people using it for things that aren't literal. For example if someone got a bad grade on their essay, saying 'my teacher literally took a dump on my essay' is essentially saying their teacher pulled their pants down and pooped right on it. Just take 'literally' out and that statement would be fine. - Entranced98

This literally should be no. 3 on the list. - PageEmperor

31 Butthurt

I don't like butthurt people because they get offended so DAMN EASILY - AlphaQ

Maybe because people are butthurt about it. - DarkBoi-X

32 Salty

That describes my fries.

I can be pretty salty, if I do say so myself. - IceFoxPlayz

The people using this word are actually the ones who are salty.

This describes some poor English teacher's tears. - Cyri

33 Noob

No, I am not a noob. I am a noob to the server/game. But I am not a noob overall.

Come on this one is obvious.

Thanks Roblox... - RogerMcBaloney

Me when the ice cream machine is broken.

34 Terrible
35 Bro

I don't think its annoying when they say it in a positive sentence, but in a negative sentence, and if they use it all the time, its annoying!

You should only use "bro" if you're African American. Nothing more pathetic than little white kids trying to be as cool as black people and throwing "bro" in every sentence. Ultimate cringer : "U mad, Bro? ". Awful.

I am not your bro. Especially if it's to say "F you, bro"

And I thought the words "buddy" and "dude" were annoying

36 Swag

SWAG means secretly we are gay

What does it even mean? - blackflower

Nobody uses it - DarkBoi-X

I'm glad nobody uses this anymore. - RogerMcBaloney

37 Poser

Especially overused by metal elitists - DarkBoi-X

38 Dank

Amazing complex word, only people with an IQ of 420 can understand the true meaning of it. - AlphaQ

What does this even mean?

No. This is amazing. - DarkBoi-X

Good memes though. - DarkBoi-X

39 Holla

Well. If you are writing something one can reply to, then obviously one will write back. No need to state it.

I'm confused does it mean hello or reply?

What does it mean? - 0744rose

Holla sounds like both Hola and hula, and it is NOT a word.

40 Selfie

Guys I like gotta take a selfie cause I look so hot and haters gonna hate rofl I have so much swag and #dope bros you just saw an annoying sentence right there

The annoying word to end all annoying words

In.. The dictionary. What has the world become?

I don't say it, but I do it - Luckys

41 Bitch

By Meredith Brooks. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

Lasagna - Bammer73

Bitch please, this isn't a terrible word, bitch. - AlphaQ

42 Illuminati

The Illuminati existed. It just wasn't what people thought it was.

There's like, these really annoying (whatever you want) is ILLUMINATI CONFIRMED! videos on youtube where they put unrealistic reasons that don't even make sense why something is illuminati. It's so annoying!

Oh, well I like conspiracy theories about the Illuminati. - sadical

Not the word, but the theory about it is kinda annoying, because it doesn’t make sense at all. - Userguy44

43 Yo

"yo"... Uhmm, yes... And?

Why are people on this site like I was born in the wrong generation because Yoko and swag annoys me?

Used mostly by wannabe cool kids. - DarkBoi-X

This is the word my elder sister uses she uses yo instead of's so annoying... - 0744rose

44 Obviously
45 Chilling

Who put you in the freezer!?

It means hanging out. What is with these pplz

46 Clickbait

Yeah, Bright Side is too big. - Cyri

I hate these comments!

More like masterbait (spelled it wrong on purpose)

47 Pwned

What does that even mean? Is it supposed to be like owned, but with an intentional typo?

I agree with the person right below me.

Didn't this die in the great originality recession of 2012? - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Is this a word - sadical

48 Ship

I ship a lot of people like Jackson and Kathryn.
Edit: Ugh I made that comment begining of big brother, and now it's the end. - Luckys

Oh, so like a boat? - sadical

49 Fortnite

When I see this cursed word of a Battle Royale game, I'm going to burn it to the ground. - jdramirez

I hate Fortnite

It's not even that good of a game... - GehennaTheSecond

Minecraft is better

50 Oof

Usage of this word has to end now. I have seen this too many times and is still coming around today. It was a huge mistake to make this a memetic word and should have just stayed within where it came from

Come up with something else people. It's old and unoriginal these days.

People are just using this because of ROBLOX. I like playing ROBLOX but it gets annoying that this word is overuse a lot now. God have mercy! - Honeyreis

Comment something else. This is getting old
