Top 10 Songs You Can't Criticize Without Being Attacked

Songs from artists that people will attack you for criticizing. Like always if I missed one feel free to add it.

The Top Ten

1 Hey Jude - The Beatles

If you criticize any Beatles song people will overreact and attack you for it. - SomePersonYouHate

Lol, this entire list is hipsters trying to prove they have disdain for anything that commoners like.

But, half the song is nanananana - kempokid

I don’t like it, please don’t murder me - InsertCleverName

2 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

I think Nirvana are pretty good musicians, but this song, aside from the guitar playing, is their most mediocre in my opinion. Kurt isn't exactly a great vocalist. - Swellow

I agree plus the lyrics are pretty mediocre. Kurt's vocals and the guitar riff is the only good aspects of this song. They've truly made better songs than this and that's coming from a fan of both Nirvana and Foo Fighters. - SomePersonYouHate

A crap song and even crappier fanbase for it - Firepower

3 Radioactive - Imagine Dragons

Stating a negative opinion about this song causes Imagine Dragons fans to be pissed and attack people for having a opinion. - SomePersonYouHate

Any High School kid who is in to modern mainstream music, will make sure you're crucified if you dare criticize that song. - RogerWatersfan1999

This song is a good song but I have to admit it suffers from being overrated. - Aguythatpeopleignores

4 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

One negative comment about this song and BAM already causes arguments with Zeppelin fans. - SomePersonYouHate

Not really I prefer Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd this song is mediocre at best. - SomePersonYouHate

One bad comment and boom,next thing you know you're on the Stairway to Hell! - NightyO

5 Blank Space - Taylor Swift

Swifties are obnoxious enough said. - SomePersonYouHate

6 I C** Blood - Cannibal Corpse

I really wish that the vocalist was better and that the lyrics weren't as stupid, every song by them sounds very similar in terms of lyrics. The instrumentation is pretty damn good I have to say - kempokid

Any Cannibal Corpse song can be on this list to be honest because the fans of this band can't tolerate someone disliking them. Also the lyrics to this song are pretty cringey and distasteful. - SomePersonYouHate

Why do people like this masochist crap? - Mcgillacuddy

I like CC’s instrumentation but I hate their lyrics. Chris Barnes is just horrible. - MindCrime

Same I wouldn't mind them so much if A: Their vocals didn't sound like he was choking on syrup and if their lyrical subject matter wasn't about killing people. - SomePersonYouHate

7 Yesterday - The Beatles

Jeff, you're really brave for calling this mediocre - 445956

Beatles fanboys will downright go insane if you don't like this or their other mediocre songs. - SomePersonYouHate

8 Heathens - Twenty One Pilots

It's not that great of a song but oh well TOP fans are great at overreacting to negative opinions about their music. - SomePersonYouHate

9 Lose Yourself - Eminem

As much as I like this song I'll admit that Eminem fans can overreact to someone disliking him and his songs. - SomePersonYouHate

agreed - B0S5J4M3S

10 Shake It Off - Taylor Swift

One of my least favorite songs of all time! - RogerWatersfan1999

I don't like this song - Phillip873

The Contenders

11 Praying - Kesha

This is what they call the best song of 2017? A boring generic pop ballad that has been done a million times before, and apparently it has "Meaningful lyrics" even though they are nothing special at all. Yup it's totally the best song of 2017 (sarcasm). - christangrant

Fans of this song attacked me on a 2017 music list for calling it the most overrated song of all time. Which yes, I feel it's one of the overrated songs of all time. - RogerWatersfan1999

Well, any Kesha song is crap - InsertCleverName

12 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

I'm sick and tired of hearing the same overused lame excuses for hating this song, Coming from someone who listens to all kinds of music (from Synthpop to Brutal Death Metal) this song is a song that I think is one of the best of all time, it's not my favorite but I can certainly see why someone would say it is their favorite and it's not because of the songs popularity, it's an Objectively good song whether you like it or don't and if you have a problem with someone liking this song then you need to do something about that because that's a problem, it's fine if you don't like this song but please give valid reasons as to why and also understand why someone would like it, and also don't make up lies about the song. - christangrant

This is self explanatory to be honest, need I say more?

The triggered and defensive reactions by Queen fans prove that the criticism of this song is true.

The lyrics are gibberish [yes I know who Scaramouche was], and Freddie's voice is screeching and purposely annoying throughout. It's a very fun singalong ala "Wayne's World", but is not much more than that. Queen were great for mindless sports stadium chants.

LOL, the anonymous "critic" confused Bohemian Rhapsody with We Will Rock You - Bohemian Rhapsody isn't a sports stadium anthem, We Will Rock You is. Do I need to say more about how competent the "critics" are? - Metal_Treasure

13 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold
14 The Final Episode (Let's Change the Channel) - Asking Alexandria
15 Centuries - Fall Out Boy

Not a big FOB fan this song is ok but it's cheesy and kind of laughable *Awaits angry FOB fanboy comments* - SomePersonYouHate

16 Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance
17 Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones

Good song but not even their best one. Start me up is so much better - InsertCleverName

Not as much as the other songs on this list. - SomePersonYouHate

18 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day

Green Day fans are already irrational, but if you point out the fact that this song is mediocre, they go off the deep end.

I like how you criticize others for overreacting, yet immediately fly off the handle when someone brings up a point against an artist you like. - Swellow

19 Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden
20 The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin
21 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

Since Pink Floyd fans are primarily stoners, they are unable the get too worked up, but do say "Hey Man! " over and over if you criticize this song.

No Pink Floyd fan I know of has done that. Also not ALL Pink Floyd fans are stoners. - SomePersonYouHate

Maybe not ALL, but ALMOST all Pink Floyd fans are stoners, that's the fanbase they targeted from the beginning.

22 Your Song - Elton John
23 Tornado of Souls - Megadeth
