Please read the name of the list and bring facts while adding new items here

The Top Ten

1 Trespassing - Adam Lambert

Charted: Only in Canada, only in 98.
YouTube views: only 3 m (31.03.2015)
After that: NO song was charted anywhere by far - Fan_of_Good_Music

2 Friday - Rebecca Black

Brought fame BUT was derided by critics and she received a LOT of hate and never became a successful singer. - Fan_of_Good_Music

3 Kisses Down Low - Kelly Rowland

Again plain garbage similar to We can't stop... everything was OK before this and this song ruined her, she failed to regain her fame & attention even after a very good & scandalous song: Dirty Laundry. - Fan_of_Good_Music

4 Booty - Jennifer Lopez

I've never heard this but what I have to say just from the cover and name is that songs are just so uninspired, pointless, and just simply dumb nowadays. Booty? It sounds like the dumbest song ever. - SammySpore

5 All Gold Everything - Trinidad James
6 Turn On the Lights - Future
7 Make It Out This Town - Eve
8 Ultraviolence - Lana del Rey

After so perfect songs this plain garbage with some others in her last album makes no sense... Hope upcoming "Honeymoon" is gonna be as good as "Born To Die" like she said... - Fan_of_Good_Music

9 Bad Girl - Avril Lavigne

This is not bad at all. I'm not a big fan of her music but I like this song. Hello Kitty on the other hand makes sense on this list.

10 Take a Picture - Carly Rae Jepsen

The Contenders

11 Hello Kitty - Avril Lavigne
12 Run the World - Beyonce

Well I'm not a fan but her career's going on very successfully, so why did you put it? - Fan_of_Good_Music

13 Baby - Justin Bieber

It didn't ruin his career it was doomed from the start - SammySpore

This song did not ruin his career - koopatroopaandgoomba4ever

14 Bound 2 - Kanye West
15 Tick Tick Boom - the Hives
16 Home - Gym Class Heroes
17 Bounce - Dynamite MC
18 Liquorice - Azealia Banks

Well the first song succeeded (I don't know why though) & the very next one failed... - Fan_of_Good_Music

19 No Better - Lorde

The "mining" of singles off of albums started with Michael Jackson and continued with Mariah Carey and others to artificially extend the popularity of album sales from very popular artists.
The Beatles did not do this, they thought it was ripping off the fans.
Lorde just wasn't that good, she had one good song, and another that was only fair, with the rest being pretty bad. We will see if she ever charts again.
