Top Ten Songs With the Worst InstrumentationWonkeyDude98 These are songs with completely abysmal production, even if the lyrics are good.
The Top Ten
Die in a hole Dr. Luke. - WonkeyDude98
Sometimes I wonder why Kanye is considered such an awesome producer... - WonkeyDude98
This is a horrible song, but I think that "On Sight" has even worse production.
Of course he'd think that.
Honestly, I feel like having Imagine Dragons on board would help the song. Nope! When X Ambassadors is singing, it sounds like someone is banging on a tin can over a mumbling guy. When Imagine Dragons explodes with their horrendously disjointed hook, the percussion is light, and the electronic noises aren't that fitting. All of this along with this song's other numerous faults, made this Imagine Dragons' worst song, and proved X Ambassadors are mere wannabes of them, going so far as dragging them down too. - WonkeyDude98
This would have made my worst list if it was a single. - djpenquin999
The bass and melody to this are so underweight and ugly. - WonkeyDude98
The bassline is kinda okay, but the dubstep and four-note synth line introducing the beginning of the song was one of the worst instrumental moments I've ever heard. - WonkeyDude98
Yeah, after my review, nothing else needs to be said about the funhouse beat. - WonkeyDude98
A buzzing synthesizer against an 808 drum and a basic fournote bassline, also the part right after Bieber says "POWER", the drop is the weakest I've heard in my life. All of this is lazy even by will.i.am standards. - WonkeyDude98
The synth sounds like someone shouting "PEEKTAPEEKTAPEEKTAPEEKTA" over and over, the 808 is ugly, and that's all there is to it. - WonkeyDude98
No, Beyoncé, there is a stark difference between a diva being a female version of a hustler. - Swellow
The ugly, distant snare, the gang vocals shouting "HEY", the buzzing bass on the hook, and the oily synth on the bridge kinda make the song sound like it's trying to be threatening but Kendrick's bars and Swift's terrible way with words just ruin it. - WonkeyDude98
I love the production on this. It's threatening and intimidating while still sounding pop-friendly.
This should be no1.
This was...horrible. Just a bunch of random noises over a bland trap beat. - Scr3aM
Whooping synths, car alarm, siren, jumping percussion...this is like trying to play basketball during the apocalypse. - WonkeyDude98
The synth is so oily and it doesn't mix with the creaky slam of the bass, so you can't dance to this. - WonkeyDude98
This song is the bane of my very existence. - RiverClanRocks
I love this song - FerrariDude64
This song has the most boring instrumental that I have ever heard.
Another good song - FerrariDude64
Trap and EDM don't mix, people! - WonkeyDude98
This is absolutely terrifying. The two central synths are both blaring and distorted, the bassline takes itself much more seriously than it should, and the blocky percussion just emphasizes the creepiest parts of it. - WonkeyDude98
I already burned this song to a pulp. - Swellow
This entire song is built off of one of the whiniest vocal samples I've ever heard. - WonkeyDude98
Top 10 material.
Eh, it's mediocre. - WonkeyDude98
The instrumentation literally sounds like Kyla's Do You Mind but slowed down. - SelfDestruct
