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 Heathens - Twenty One Pilots 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.

Garbage that only got popular thanks to Suicide Squad - christangrant

Awful, Screw This Song - VideoGamefan5

2 Work - Rihanna 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

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.

3 Bang Bang - Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj 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?

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.

4 Shake It Off - Taylor Swift

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

5 Watch Me (Whip / Nae Nae) - Silento

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

6 7 Years - Lukas Graham


7 Anaconda - Nicki Minaj

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

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

8 Everything is Awesome - Tegan and Sara

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

9 Burn It Down - Linkin Park

Oh come on now, this song is actually great, and underrated. - RadioHead03

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

10 Closer - The Chainsmokers

The Contenders

11 Roar - Katy Perry

Boring generic overplayed garbage - christangrant

This Song Has Some Of The Most Selfish, Rude, Braggy, And Stupidest Lyrics I've Ever Heard, WHAT IS EVEN A BLINK SPACE? - VideoGamefan5

14 Kryptonite - 3 Doors Down

It sounds like trash and it's really overrated.

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

Eh this song is Ok but it is overrated - christangrant

15 Cruise - Florida Georgia Line

AH get this crap out of here it sucks so much and is overrated - christangrant

16 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.

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

17 No - Meghan Trainor

What I say to this song NO - christangrant

18 Happy - Pharrell Williams

Its descent but yes overrated - christangrant

19 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

20 Don't Let Me Down - The Chainsmokers

Overrated garbage - christangrant

21 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...

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

22 Love Yourself - Justin Bieber

The tune is just so repetitive and annoying. Please stop. The horn part... Doesn't add anything. It's way too bright for the rest of the song. I like brass. There's a reason they're used in jazz, ska, ragae, and Mexican music. It just doesn't work here.

Yeah no need to explain this one.

Insted of Love Yourself listen to Lose Yourself it's so much better - christangrant

23 Crank That (Souljah Boy) - Soulja Boy Tell 'em

33 This is What You Came For - Calvin Harris
