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.

It's just boring and has no rhythm. In the song he doesn't sound gay.

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.

This should be number one because it's so inappropriat e! But why was "tsunami" on this list? It was the best from her new album (Witness)

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.

It's not catchy, and it doesn't have the playful vibe that made Birthday (it's most obvious predecessor) enjoyable.

4 This Is How We Do

Tuneless song with a blatantly racist music video

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

This song should burn in hell

Who the hell says "bish" in the chorus every 2/3 of the time?

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

13 Chained to the Rhythm

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

Hate it

"It's a political statement,not a drinking song - garlicboyM"
Hahhahahha is that what she told everyone? Man was I completely fooled.
"Turn it up its your favorite song! Dancedancedance till the break of dawn! Turn it up keep it on repeat, stumbling along like a wasted zom!...we rotate to the rhythm. To the rhythm! "

Sounds like some garbage party song to me.

14 Last Friday Night

This song is all about drinking and partying.

This song should be higher.

Not a clean song for kids.

Great song. - DaisyandRosalina

18 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!

Right whoever wrote this list is a ding dong. these are her best songs

19 Milk Milk Lemonade

Unoffical, and she just talks

20 Walking On Air

What a terrible song oh my god I almost ran out of my room
