Sex and partying is not bad in the slightest. So I don't get why many songs are on this list.

27 I Kissed a Girl - Katy Perry

Kids, don't be gay. It goes against the morals of your esteemed vice president. - ProPanda

While you can argue that she has a boyfriend in the song, she only went so far as kissing, plus it is implied she'll tell him what happened as she hopes he won't mind. - Martin_Canine

SO bad, and the message is even worse even if this song did not have a bad message it is still repetitive and STOOPID.

48 What Makes You Beautiful - One Direction

Although the lyrics actually aren't meant to send this message - probably - there's one line however I always hated: "You don't know you're beautiful, that's what makes you beautiful"
Lack of self-esteem is NOT beautiful. I know I'm probably overreacting, because like every other brain possessing being I'm disgusted by One Direction, but seriously: Saying that a girl is beautiful cause she doesn't know it? I mean, I get the point behind all this shyness thing and stuff. But shouldn't you rather tell ten-year-old girls that they should find themselves beautiful without some guy having to remind them? - Mesel
