Worst Girl Power Songs

NiktheWiz
There have been plenty of great female empowerment songs like Respect by Aretha Franklin, but these songs really miss the mark when it comes to female empowerment.

The Top Ten

1 I Might Go Lesbian - Manika

"Yeah, maybe I should give us ladies a try, because we're everything not that I hate in a guy." This song is nothing but sexism in a nutshell. - NiktheWiz

2 Anaconda - Nicki Minaj
3 Run the World (Girls) - Beyoncé
4 Pretty Girls - Britney Spears & Iggy Azalea
5 M.I.L.F.$ - Fergie
6 Dear Future Husband - Meghan Trainor
7 Worth It - Fifth Harmony
8 I Hate Boys - Christina Aguilera
9 God Made Girls - Raelynn

This song is supposed to empower women, yet it actually degrades them by making feel like they were only made to serve men. - NiktheWiz

10 Straight Outta Vagina - Pussy Riot

The Contenders

11 Sit Still, Look Pretty - Daya

I actually don't hate this one. The vocals and production are fine, but the lyrics are pretty bad. It tries to settle for the theme of not being treated like a trophy wife, but Daya ends up taking the concept too far and instead of making a good anthem for standing up for oneself, she ended up sprinkling some sexism into here and missing the mark. Plus, that Snow White lyric is really stupid. Maddie & Tae's Girl in a Country Song tackles this type of subject matter much better without the sexism. - NiktheWiz

Basically what NikTheWiz said, except I utterly loathe everything about this, including its choppy, sluggish sound. - WonkeyDude98

12 Bang Bang - Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj
13 I Kissed a Girl - Katy Perry
14 No - Meghan Trainor

At least Me Too wasn't trying to be a serious statement. No, however, is. That statement would've been fine if the framing were much better. For instance, instead of having the lyric, "so let me stop you there before you speak," a much better would've been, "so let me stop you there now that I let you speak" so that she at least has evidence that the guy is not worth hanging around with. - NiktheWiz

15 Birthday - Selena Gomez
16 Dangerous Woman - Ariana Grande
17 Like a Boy - Ciara
