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

I'm a girl and hate Justin. Not only does his songs stink, he's a horrible person! - tig13

2 Stupid Hoe - Nicki Minaj

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

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.

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

It's a perfect example of what can be passed on for "music" these days

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

Really? Whether to take the front seat or back seat is hard for you? You know what's hard, getting out of the poverty line! - crockydyle

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.

One of my friends like it and I hate it its about barbie barbie sucks - Magmadude

5 Anaconda - Nicki Minaj

There is no point of this lazy song, it’s about Nicki’s Ass - Soulstealer

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

V 5 CommentsUListen to Sample
6 Thrift Shop - Macklemore

They did not have to make a song about spending his money on random stuff so dirty

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

I actually like this song.-DarkBoi-X

7 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

8 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

Why do they call it The Best Song ever? It should be called The Worst Song Ever. - EpicJake

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

What the point of this song?

This song is very annoying. I hate this song so much.

It sucks!

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

10 Who Let the Dogs Out - Baha Men

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

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 actually like this song

The Contenders

11 Boyfriend - Justin Bieber

Even worse than baby.

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

Really crap. shouldn't of made the day of light

V 1 CommentUListen to Sample
12 #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

Even more pointless than the nine songs above it COMBINED. This song defines pointless.

13 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

16 Dance (A$$) - Big Sean UListen to Sample
17 Sexting - Blood On the Dance Floor UListen to Sample
18 Hampster Dance - Hampton the Hampster UListen to Sample
19 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!

Who put his here?

20 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

21 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

This is one of the most annoying songs on the face of the Earth.

He likes a cartoon character? That's not even anime? - ethanmeinster

23 Can't Get You Out of My Head - Kylie Minogue UListen to Sample
24 Summer - Calvin Harris UListen to Sample
25 Strobe - Deadmau5

I mean there is no lyrics

What is the matter with you people?! Strobe is an awesome song with awesome music and you guys hate it because there's NO LYRICS? I've got some tips for you. Why don't you get some dubstep software and try to make a song better than strobe? Tell me how it goes...

Absolutely horrible. The beat drop was not even that good.

Rubbish random beats. I heard this song and it sound so much like a garbage can beating up a person.

26 What Makes You Beautiful - One Direction

So you not knowing that you are beautiful makes you beautiful. But the only way not knowing that you are beautiful is to actually be beautiful. But the only reason that you can be beautiful is that you don't that your beautiful...

I feel like this reflects most teen girls nowadays actually, insisting they aren't pretty- but really 1D? There is no 'story' to the song

27 Birthday Cake - Rihanna UListen to Sample
28 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.

All of his songs could be here

29 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.

UListen to Sample
30 Problem - Ariana Grande

"Hey baby even though I hate ya, I wanna love ya". Even more pointless than Stupid Hoe.

31 Story of My Life - One Direction

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

UListen to Sample
32 Professional Griefers - deadmau5

How come this song is near the bottom?! Gerrard Way is yelling gibberish in this song! Ghosts n stuff should be much higher in the top ten as well as this! - SelfDestruct

It's actually quite thought-provoking, this song. - PositronWildhawk

33 Hip-Hop Saved My Life - Lupe Fiasco UListen to Sample
34 Hollaback Girl - Gwen Stefani UListen to Sample
35 Fancy - Iggy Azalea


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

Yes. I agree with funny user. this is a terrible and pointless song.
Ps. call me maybe should be a lot higher. also lupe faisco is annoying.

38 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? ".

Most pointless and who added starways to heaven?

41 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?

I've got the eye of the tiger. And what? With all the terrible news (such asterrorism, racial tension, income inequality) happening all over the world, we have this vapid, meaningless song as the people's "jam." Yay

42 Hello Kitty - Avril Lavigne

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

43 Birdie Song - Tweets UListen to Sample
44 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my number, so call me maybe.
Your I.Q. drops several points each time you hear it.

The most overplayed song of 2012 probably. And one of the most boring songs ever.

Once my Boxing-mate came to me and told me "Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my number, so call me maybe".

Best thing was I had boxing gloves on

UListen to Sample
45 Ghosts N Stuff - Deadmau5

Contrary to your moronic belief, SelfDestruct, and anyone else, this song is not pointless. A lot of people say that it's to do with drugs. It's about being an outsider, and about fitting in with the world from another perspective. See the music video to really understand this. And if you are still calling this pointless, you're just not worth arguing with.
P.S. Anonymous. Autotune? You are the funniest guy ever. It's electrohouse, not pop. - PositronWildhawk

I prefer skrillex, even though skrillex uses autotune, it is used to add effects to songs

Just don't use auto-tune to make people think you sound good

46 Words I Never Said - Lupe Fiasco

A failed attempt to get Obama to rethink the damage he caused. Of course this song is pointless!

49 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
