Top 10 Songs You'll Most Likely Hear Out in Public

These are songs you might commonly hear in public places such as Walmart or Target. They generally play maybe one or two song on the list. I'm not a fan of most of the songs on this list except for In The End, but that's not the main focus of this list. If I missed one feel free to add it.

The Top Ten

1 Rockstar - Post Malone

Even though it's bland in many aspects in public stores it might be played a few times.

I was at a fair yesterday, and one of the ride operators was playing this. - awesomedp900

2 Thunder - Imagine Dragons

You want Imagine Dragons, random public place? Battle Cry, Who We Are, and Demons are better. Something catchy? It's Time or even Whatever It Takes. (To be fair, that last one is still overplayed, but not so much that I exit the room when it comes on) - Cyri

Probably either once or twice you'll hear this or one of their several other overplayed songs.

3 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
4 Happy - Pharrell Williams

I've heard it in public a few times and it was kind of annoying after a while.

5 Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi
6 In the End - Linkin Park

Again maybe once or twice and it is a pretty overplayed song.

7 What is Love - Haddaway
8 Love Yourself - Justin Bieber

JB's practically become a household name by now...

9 Look What You Made Me Do - Taylor Swift

It'll probably be severely overplayed in public.

10 7 Years - Lukas Graham

The Contenders

11 God's Plan - Drake

Wouldn't surprise me if it was played in public.

12 Lose Yourself - Eminem
13 Here Without You - 3 Doors Down
14 We are the Champions - Queen
15 How You Remind Me - Nickelback
16 We Will Rock You - Queen
17 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
18 Centuries - Fall Out Boy

It's true! People play these songs as if they're the only songs that exist - Ananya

A mediocre song but it's not uncommon to hear it in public.

19 Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars
20 Hotel California - Eagles
21 Africa - Toto

I haven't, heard this song ONCE in public.

22 I Knew You Were Trouble - Taylor Swift

Either this or one of her other songs but generally she's overplayed in public places.

23 Carry on Wayward Son - Kansas
24 Believer - Imagine Dragons

And this isn't surprising considering how overplayed it was in 2017.

25 What About Us - P!NK

I remember this coming on a lot in the stores at the mall near where I live some months back, and I'm not surprised, because I would often hear it 3 times in a day in late 2017 and early 2018. - allamassal

26 Friends - Anne Marie and Marshmello
27 MR Rock & Roll - Amy Macdonald

I think I heard this song more often than any other in the last couple of years when I was out. - Martin_Canine

28 Was Du Liebe Nennst - Bausa

I'm not in Germany so I'm unfamiliar with this song.

29 MR Brightside - The Killers
30 Meant to Be - Bebe Rexha & Florida Georgia Line

This song is so damn overplayed on my bus, it drives me nuts by how overplayed it is...

31 Perfect - Ed Sheeran
32 Lights Down Low - Max
33 There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back - Shawn Mendes
34 Attention - Charlie Puth
35 Viva la Vida - Coldplay
36 Grenade - Bruno Mars

This song is pure cheese but not the good kind...

38 Locked Out of Heaven - Bruno Mars
39 Rockstar - Nickelback
40 Photograph - Nickelback
41 Lips of an Angel - Hinder
42 Higher - Creed
43 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence
44 Behind Blue Eyes - Limp Bizkit
