Top Ten Songs Which Don't Deserve to Be Number One for a Band On Spotify

Songsta41
Some songs are the "most popular" song by a band on Spotify, while many don't deserve the title of #1, as either another one is better, or they have an even more popular song.

The Top Ten

1 A Sky Full of Stars - Coldplay

It's not their best song, it's just radio friendly mainstream pop. Their early works should be at the top. - Songsta41

I like this song a lot, but Coldplay have done better than this song, it shouldn't be their most downloaded song, I think their older stuff should have more downloads.

This has proved that Coldplay fell down, lost their effectiveness since their fifth album by changing alternative rock into pop. - TheRegular1227

It's streamed too much. People think that this is Coldplays best stuff. They never listened to their early stuff. - Userguy44

2 Enter Sandman - Metallica

It's amazing, but it's just a bit overrated. Especially when compared to their best song (Fade to Black) and their most iconic song (Master of Puppets). - Songsta41

3 Rocket Man - My Morning Jacket

It's a cover and it's not their most famous performance. I don't understand why it's #1. - Songsta41

4 Dead Inside - Muse

New doesn't always mean better. Knights of Cydonia should be number one. - Songsta41

5 Who Are You - The Who

While it's a great song, Love Reign O'er Me or Baba O' Riley should take first place. - Songsta41

6 Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden

Same thing as Sandman. - Songsta41

7 Lonely Boy - The Black Keys
8 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

WHY IS THIS ON THE LIST?

Not that I don't like nirvana...nirvana is awesome...but their are many other songs by them which are better than smells like teen spirit like heart shaped box, lithium, very ape, all apologies and many more...smells like teen spirit is indeed an awesome song and nirvana's most popular song but certainly not their best song... - abc126

9 Ain't It Fun - Paramore

Better than Misery Business or Brick By Boring Brick? No thanks

No it ain't fun - GrapeJuiceK

10 Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5

The Contenders

11 Sex On Fire - Kings of Leon
12 Follow You - Bring Me the Horizon

This is nowhere close to their best song. In my opinion, any other song on That's The Spirit would be better than that song, but The Sadness Will Never End (Suicide Season) or Can You Feel My Heart (Sempiternal) deserve the top spot. - zerolamasta

13 Aqualung - Jethro Tull

"Locomotive Breath" is way better. - PetSounds

14 You Know My Name - Chris Cornell

He is pretty much unknown as a solo artist, so you should check him out! - Songsta41

I love this song! Perfect fit for Casino Royale. - IronSabbathPriest

15 You Want a Battle? (Here's a War) - Bullet for My Valentine

Tears Don't Fall is still the best Bullet For My Valentine song.. - Rorywilbren

16 Eez-Eh - Kasabian
17 Superheroes - The Script
18 Lean On - Major Lazer

I love this but All My Love is much better

19 Sorry - Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber doesn't deserve to sing. - malamJONES

20 Should I Stay or Should I Go - The Clash
21 Big Yellow Taxi - Joni Mitchell

I guess this is good, but in comparison to mitchells other,darker, more emontianol joni mitchell songs,meh - RecklessGreed

22 (What A) Wonderful World - Sam Cooke

Every time I listen to this, I am remined of another, better song of the same name. a change is gonna come is one of the greatest songs of all time(it makes my top 3), but this isn;t - RecklessGreed

23 Heavy - Linkin Park
24 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

I'm not saying I don't like it because I do but maybe comfortably numb should be number 1 - Thecyanryan

25 Breaking the Law - Judas Priest
26 Hymn for the Weekend - Coldplay

Come on it's their worst song
