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.

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
