Worst Katy Perry Songs


The Top Ten

1 Ur So Gay

It's stupid as hell! She says inappropriate things and just says "you're so gay" over and over. At the end she randomly just says pe*** - SammySpore

This song is really offensive and bad - PatrickStar

I love katy but this song is suck.

This song is super inappropriate, I just hate it. My parents banned me from listening to her now..

2 Peacock

This song is so irritating! Should be #1!

She just says c**k over and over. - SammySpore

Well, there's enough rack and (female) booty songs. I don't think there's nearly enough 'peacock' songs as there are those songs.

I love Katy Perry but this song is the absolute worst.

3 Bon Appetit

Basically a newer updated version of Peacock but using food as a metaphor for sex. This song just an exploration in the overuse and abuse of autotune.

I was expecting a song like this from Nicky Minaj or Ariana Grande but not from you Katy, this is a poor version of Birthday (one of her worst songs), not only for the meaning but also for the voice, the base, the autotune, the Migos parts. Everything is wrong with this song, now that Miley is gone better, please don't be the new her! Worst Katy song by far. 0/10 - DaisyandRosalina

She's trying to be sexy but she just sounds gross. To put this plain and simple, This song is about licking and eating Katy Perry's wet vagina.

Food isn’t sexy Katy! - Oxymoron15

5 California Gurls

The song that ruined Snoop Dogg. - SelfDestruct

This is one of her best songs! - KatyPerryRules

This is one of the most annoying earworms ever. I swear, it got stuck in my head while I was typing this! - allamassal

This was my fave song as a kid. Now I just switch over the radio when it’s on.

6 Swish Swish

It looks like this is the third Katy Perry song in a row in which Katy is relying on a featured artist. It's almost like she is desperate to regain her success from her previous eras. - NiktheWiz

It's not almost like she's desperate, she IS desperate. Look at the cover art! - DCfnaf

All of her songs on this album are complete trash. They all rely on the guest. Katy is clearly trying maintain relevance by making crap like this, but nobody wants to her stay around... - DCfnaf

I'm so disappointed with Katy's new album. - TheFourthWorld

The lyrics are just horrible. The whole album is trash, but this one is so awful! - SpencerStar

Let me get this straight: I love Katy Perry - have done for years. I've seen her twice live, and I pretty much OBSESS over her Teenage Dream album, especially E.T., but this song... How? What could possibly have possessed her to write this garbage? The only time I've managed to hear it in full in one sitting was when I saw her live - it's annoying, it's FAR too cheesy, and honestly, it makes me angry to hear it, knowing that my favourite artist can create such a horrible song. At least some of her other mass-produced pop rubbish from Prism was tolerable (looking at you, 'This Is How We Do'). But this? Please Katy, never again. (I feel waaay too passionate about this, I'm sorry).

Most boring song -. -

This should be in the top four with peacock, your so gay, and this is how we do

This should be #1

8 This Is How We Do

One of my favorite katy perry songs and should not be here - PatrickStar

Tuneless song with a blatantly racist music video

This song have a similar beat of never say never by Justin Bieber

This is a pretty fitting Top 3. - NiktheWiz

9 Hummingbird Heartbeat

Whys humming bird heartbeat here? Unbelievable! - KatyPerryRules

This is the list for her worst songs, not her best.

Hummingbird Heartbeat is a GREAT song, one of my favourites from Katy, and should not be on this list!

Ha ha ha! This song's actually kinda funny to listen to once you find out it's about blow jobs. Not her best song (not even close) but definitely not her worst (erherm, SWISH SWISH OR BON APPETIT).

The Contenders

11 Roar

A lot of Katy’s songs suck.

12 Firework

Why are all her best songs on this list? The person who added this, are you dysfunctional or what?! Firework is her best song!

Firework and roar and teenage dream are her best songs in my opinion

This one is really good! - AnonymousChick

18 Chained to the Rhythm

It's funny how this song is about how mindless pop is, but from the same singer who released Bon Appetit not three months later. - allamassal

It starts off sounding amazing, but then she has an awful rhythm, the lyrics make no sense, & it's another garbage drinking song.

Terrible Katy

€Dance dance dance” bitch no stfu please
