Top 10 Songs that are Both Overrated and Terrible

These songs are both overrated and terrible. Let's count 'em down.

The Top Ten

1 Bang Bang - Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj

This song has horrible lyrics, and bad production. Who ever decided to play this on the radio ten times a day must be high. - BlackMetalDagger666

Where is bleach when you need it? - BoredJeff02

How did Jessie J go from Price Tag and Domino to this? - NiktheWiz

Overrated? I thought this was considered the worst song of all time. Hmmm, maybe it is overrated even at that.

No I thought Baby by Justin Bieber was considered the worst song of all time. - BoredJeff02

2 Burn It Down - Linkin Park

This music is a masterpiece but when they make a remix, it's going to be overrated and terrible.
If you burn something, you gotta "burn it down"
Haha Get it. - Luan Loud

3 Shake It Off - Taylor Swift

Annoying and repetitive but it could be a lot worse - christangrant

4 Work - Rihanna

Everyone in my class seems to love this song and sing it 24/7, but I don't get it. Is it instrumentally complex or does it have meaningful lyrics? Do the singers have awesome and varied voices? Hell no. Is it mediocre, playing on every mainstream pop station, and pointless? Yes, yes it is. - BlackMetalDagger666

As a matter of fact, the lyrics are about a relationship that Rihanna wants to become more serious. Maybe not exactly meaningful, but pretty sincere. It does sound really bad, though. - WonkeyDude98

I don't see how this is a good song at all its just annoying and repetitive which is the worst kind of song - christangrant

It's just downright annoying. - BoredJeff02

5 Hotline Bling - Drake

This sounds exactly like Drakes others 5 songs... nothing special or genius. The only way it could be worse if it featured Rihanna too. - BlackMetalDagger666

Beyond overrated... - BoredJeff02

"You used call me on your selfphone" I heard that so many times it just got annoying - christangrant

6 Heathens - Twenty One Pilots

Die hard fans that have listened to pretty much every one of their songs will tell you this is by far their worst song. I'll agree. It feels so incomplete. The instrumentals are awfully bland. The vocals are way too processed. And the message it's trying to send is really confusing. - naFrovivuS

Garbage that only got popular thanks to Suicide Squad - christangrant

Awful, Screw This Song - VideoGamefan5

7 Work from Home - Fifth Harmony

It is a song about wanting their mate to come home so they can have sex all day yet all the "cool" kids like it and sing a long to it. Bad and overrated, yes. - BlackMetalDagger666

How is this below Rihanna's Work? - NiktheWiz

8 Kryptonite - 3 Doors Down

It sounds like trash and it's really overrated. - BoredJeff02

Very bad of the worst. Exactly in fact - terrible in all aspects.

Eh this song is Ok but it is overrated - christangrant

9 Watch Me (Whip / Nae Nae) - Silento

Its Overrated because everywhere you went at one point you heard this crap being played - christangrant

10 We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together - Taylor Swift

Had she had not made this song, her reputation wouldn't have people claiming she only makes breakups, which is a shame as she had some really good songs before-hand. - Swellow

The most overrated breakup song ever. - BoredJeff02

Oh, how surprising, Taylor Swift has another song addressed to her stinking ex's. How do people like this? It is not as overrated or bad as Bang Bang or Work, but garbage netherless. - BlackMetalDagger666

The Contenders

11 Anaconda - Nicki Minaj

A very annoying song about Nicki's ass that's terrible yet so overrated. - BoredJeff02

This song is sexual and innapropriate, and I am scared because you can still watch it on You Tube. Also very gross and repetitive. I can't believe this was always played on the radio a few years ago. - BlackMetalDagger666

One of the fakest songs ever - christangrant

12 7 Years - Lukas Graham


13 All About that Bass - Meghan Trainor

Ugh... self explanatory. - BoredJeff02

14 Don't Let Me Down - The Chainsmokers

Overrated garbage - christangrant

15 Corsair - Boards of Canada
16 Closer - The Chainsmokers
17 Roar - Katy Perry

Boring generic overplayed garbage - christangrant

18 Ex's & Oh's - Elle King
19 Everything is Awesome - Tegan and Sara

Not this song which just disproves the title such a shame it came from a great movie - christangrant

20 No - Meghan Trainor

What I say to this song NO - christangrant
