Top Ten Most Pointless Songs of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Baby - Justin Bieber

And I was like baby baby baby

And I was like shut up shut up shut up NOO

Worst song in history yet 75% of the people at my school sing it 24/7. - Alpha101

PositronWildhawk! I shall never forgive you for this. That girlboy's face is now here for the duration...AND...we are invited to listen to the sample, if you please! Tsk! - Britgirl

Sounds stupid

2 Stupid Hoe - Nicki Minaj

Haha I'm not sure why some of these songs are on here? Some of them are quite entertaining so long as you don't listen to them too many times. although it was hard choosing between nicki and Justin when I detest them both and their songs.

Why? Why was this just plain obscene song written? - PositronWildhawk

I have a hard time believing that this song is meant to be taken seriously. It honestly sounds like a parody of something.

All it says is u a stupid ###

3 Friday - Rebecca Black

Dear God, the pointlessness of this song actually HURTS me. - dureckl

Pointless. But baby isn't pointless! You can make fun of it! - istooduptoabully

Lol it's so funny I came across this! Just today me and my friends were making fun of it by singing "ITS FRIDAY, ITS FRIDAY, I DON'T CARE THAT ITS FRIDAY" - TheAlbinoWolf

It's just ruining people's Fridays - AlphaQ

4 Barbie Girl - Aqua

What happened to the world that made this popular?!?! - PositronWildhawk

This song is okay. Although what's so popular about Barbie.. ?

The song that turned Barbie into a sex figure.

Listen to Weird Al's parody of it.

5 That's Not My Name - The Ting Tings

First of all the ting ting's is the worst name ever

I laughed to death when I found out the name of this artist - Harri666

6 Thrift Shop - Macklemore

How is this song pointless? It's a rap song, that fights consumerism, and isn't about some douche who spends all his money on gucci and armani! This song is art!

This song is not pointless. It's all about rappers always mentioning items all through their songs. And it has a great tune and beat

A rap song about a thrift shop? Come on!

Absolutely hate this song.

7 Anaconda - Nicki Minaj

Definitely dreadful and completely meaningless, as usual with this twat. - PositronWildhawk

It is really absurd. Nothing else - divphygamer

What the hell is this song all about I hate it

Only Sir Mix-A-Lot made it better, with the "My Anaconda don't..."

8 Who Let the Dogs Out - Baha Men

This should top the list. It's heart-wrenching nonsense.

Its not horrible but it is pointless, I mean really Baha men? We know you let the dogs out its called reversed psychology - mysterious

I like this song. Maybe it is pointless but it's catchy in my opinion. - OriginalVisionary

It may be pointless but I still like the song - Ajkloth

9 Umbrella - Rihanna

This song is catchy, I kinda like it.

It doesn't really have a big point but I like it though I like the less popular elvis presley version of the song - simpsondude

This song is just about her boyfriend can stay under an umbrella with her... Pointless. - funnyuser

This was at number 1 for weeks and in that time, most of the time it rained - I jest not. I agree. This is just a pointless, tuneless, souless, boring, mind-numbing, brain-aching, teeh-grinding, suicide-inducing, fingernails-on-blackboard, NOISE!
Thank you. That is all. - Britgirl

10 The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) - Ylvis

Dog goes woof, cat goes meow, ugh, the pointlessness of this song hurts me.

This song is so dumb I don't know how it was ever popular - Ajkloth

But there's a sound, that no one knoows...


*random weird sounds*

The Contenders

11 #selfie - The Chainsmokers

So, pointless! Who wants to know about some girl texting her boyfriend!? - funnyuser

This isn't even a song. She's just talking. She's not even trying to sing, either. It's just her talking with sound in the background. Should be in the top 5. - SlimVeggie

This should be in the top 5 area, this is NOT singing NOR is it rap, its just some girl talking like cray cray while there is a beat playing

Time to write a negative comment on this. But first let me take a selfie

12 Best Song Ever - One Direction

In reality, it's the worst song ever.

I don't know what's worse, this lame excuse for a song, Baby, or Anaconda. Why did 1D even name this song "Best Song Ever", it should be called "Worst Song Ever" - PizzaGuy

This is the worst song ever. I wasted my time listening to it. One direction completely sucks. This song is sure to be the worst ever

Ok but why did they need to tell us

13 Watch Me - Silento

Why the hell is Stairway to Heaven below this? - naFrovivuS

14 Boyfriend - Justin Bieber

He can't really rap, but he just wants to show how 'good' he raps to the people.. And he can't even drive a sports car!

Thus Justin just rules this list

15 Dance (A$$) - Big Sean
16 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

Who the hell put this song on this list. Stairway to heaven is the most meaningful dog in the history of music. It takes a lot of digging in to truly understand what this song means. Anyone who thinks "it's pointless" is just a stupid idiot with no musical taste or talent whatsoever. It hurts me inside to see possibly the most complex and greatest song in history on this list.

What a hypocrite. Everyone else "stinks" and you've insulted us, but one word said about this song ad you have to get all mad, acting like we are idiots who will never understand life. Stop acting like your genre is supreme ruler because there are nicer (and possibly better) ones too. Calling people "stupid idiot" will get you nowhere in life. Learn to accept others opinions. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

What?!?!?! I love this song - N64Dude

What has the world Become? Robert Plant in this song is singing about Heaven! And if that is pointless than everything is pointless!

17 Achy Breaky Heart - Billy Ray Cyrus

I can not believe I had to add this on it does not make sense at all - BigBrotherSucks

It should be number 1 - BigBrotherSucks

18 Mickey - Toni Basil

First time I heard this, I was two years old. My mother put it on. That was probably how I learnt fear. - PositronWildhawk

19 Cruise - Florida Georgia Line
20 Hot Problems - Double Take
21 Birthday Cake - Rihanna
22 Lollipop - Lil Wayne

A very pointless and annoying song, has way too much auto tune, and he is saying the samething over and over again, he sounds like a broken record.

23 Story of My Life - One Direction

THE STORY OF MY LIFE! I'LL TAKE A HOE. - shawnmccaul22

24 Wiggle - Jason Derulo
25 Summer - Calvin Harris
26 Roar - Katy Perry

I'm not a HUGE fan of this song, it's alright in my opinion, but I really don't think it's pointless. I can see inspiration through the lyrics, and Katy was actually trying with this song, unlike that Chainsmokers crap.

Pointless babble and, in addition, I just realised that Katy Perry's music sounds very dated, even compared to songs that came out in 1997-2000. Can you imagine releasing Roar in 1999?

Should be higher than Because I Got High, at least that song is funny. This song is just a few words. Can you believe this song was written by five people? Five people for a handful of words?

27 Fack - Eminem

The title is just what I think of this song. - CasinLetsGoBowling

You simply can't put a track by Eminem on this list.

28 Birdie Song - Tweets
29 Tik Tok - Ke$ha

Could you believe this dumbass song sold more copies than ANY Beatles single?

Most pointless song I've ever heard.

Kesha is basically drunk Taylor Swift. My cousin showed me this song and I was like, "What the hell? ".

30 Lax - Xzibit
31 Nine Thou (Superstars Remix) - Styles of Beyond

Excuse me, but this is not supposed to be below Stupid Hoe by Nicki Minaj!

32 California Gurls - Katy Perry

What is this song about? :NOTHING! - PugsfromMoon

33 Don't Speak - No Doubt

I just won't bother explaining. It is so pointless. - PositronWildhawk

34 Hollaback Girl - Gwen Stefani
35 Crayons Can Melt on Us for All I Can - Relient K

It lasts only 10 seconds and all it says "I just wasted 10 seconds of your life" I think this song should be first on the most pointless songs. - paasadani

Yeah, this should definitely the most pointless song if it says that. - funnyuser

So pointless. Really. It wastes 10 seconds of your life.

"I just wasted ten seconds of your life". Indeed. - Imreallyboredrightnow

Dude totally worse than The Scarlet Letter book. Although we totally rocked that song back in our day - meaning 2012

41 Gentleman - Psy
42 Cheerleader - Omi
43 In-a-Gadda-Da-Vida - Iron Butterfly

1960's legend had it that this was somebody completely stoned on LSD trying to say In the Garden of Eden.

44 Hello Kitty - Avril Lavigne

The song doesn't make sense at all. It's the most horrible song of all time.

45 Fancy - Iggy Azalea

"I'm in the fastlane from La to Tokyo", silly girl. There's no fastlane from LA to Tokyo.
