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

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


No one uses this anymore - BananaBrain

I don't care - Pokemonfan10

This is overused & really annoying. - jdramirez

Well original text words so whatever.

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

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

This word is so gay.

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

5 Autistic

People saying it in a rude way can offend me or someone else. - ArcticWolf

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

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

Only bad if used unironically and to be hateful. - DarkBoi-X


Stop sending threats to people

Kiss your skeleton? - CrypticMemory

Keep yourself safe? - BananaBrain

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

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.

No. It is a good way to describe things that are cancerous. - DarkBoi-X

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

8 First!

This happens more on YouTube rather than TheTopTens. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

You want a medal of something? - RogerMcBaloney

I hate YouTube comment sections sometimes thanks to this. - AlphaQ

Want a cookie or trophie for that? - BananaBrain


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

15 Sucks


This sucks.

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

Like those who call fictional characters "Daddy" - ElSherlock

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

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

19 Troll

Trolls are good - AlphaQ

I don't like trolls - Pokemonfan10

Not a big deal. - Userguy44

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.

20 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


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

Who actually uses this outdated word after 2013? - AlphaQ

Who actually used this passed 2014. - DarkBoi-X

I say this a lot in person or when texting - Luckys

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

Most obnoxiously overused word ever. - Soulstealer

Great word - AlphaQ

24 Savage

Amazing word - AlphaQ

Another amazing word. - DarkBoi-X

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

25 Epic Fail!

This fad is an epic fail! - Ashes

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...

26 Ripoff

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

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.

I hate it when people use this word in real conversations. - RogerMcBaloney

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

28 -Ass

No it's amazing. It's also my favourite food. - DarkBoi-X

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

Ass, what a cool word. Amazing. Shouldn't be here. - DarkBoi-X

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

29 Elitist

Me when the ice cream machine is broken.

2013-esque insult - DarkBoi-X

So Overused

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

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