Worst Katy Perry Songs


The Top Ten

1 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.

How is this a 'gay anthem' the song is about how SHE desperately wants to see a GUYS private part? It HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HOMOSEXUALS!

2 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 homophobic - Iamcool

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.

This is worse than Peacock in my opinion because this song is disgusting - RoseCandyMusic

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

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

Her new album is disappointment but I loved this song.Bon Appetit is trash.

Awful lyrics, awful theme ( whatever it is) and an awful voice. She lost her " thing".
I mean "another in the basket", " u are as cute as an old cuppon expired" clearly she hit the bottom. Poor katy cats karma is not a liar and keeps receipts indeed. But I'm pretty sure that her 8 year old fans wont unstan

10 Roar

This song is great it should not be on the list

This song is awesome.

This song's beat was copied by the song brave by Sara Bareilles

Katy's 2nd best song behind the one that got away. My top five Katy perry songs
1) The one that got away- reminds us that sometimes we don't last forever in relationship like we want to. " I never dreamed that one day I would lose you. In another life I would make you stay so I don't have to say you were the one that got away"
2) Roar- inspirational song " You held me down but I got up. Already brushing off the dust." This reminds me that we can get up stronger if we believe in ourselves.
3) Firework- "You don't have to feel like your wasted space. Your original can not be replaced. If you only knew what the futures holds after a hurricane comes a rainbow. Maybe a reason why all the doors are closed so you could open one that lead someone you to the perfect road." This reminds me that we should trust that our future will be better.
4) Part of me- " This is the part of me that your never gonna ever take away from me" I like this song.
5) Hot N cold- this is the chorus " ...more

The Contenders

11 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

"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.

12 Tsunami
13 Teenage Dream

No! This is a great song! Have you ever even heard this song! Are you kidding me?

Whoever put this here either has never heard this song.

Video terrible

Teenage dream is my favorite from scotty masters
I hope my girlfriend katy perry playing it make me happy

Whys humming bird heartbeat here? Unbelievable! - KatyPerryRules

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

18 Milk Milk Lemonade

Unoffical, and she just talks
