Worst Linkin Park Songs

There really aren't many bad songs by this amazing band but I thought I'd make the list anyway.

The Top Ten

1 Heavy

With every other linkin park song up to this point I always got the feeling that the change in genre, good or bad, was always a creative choice. Robot Boy may not be good but at least it seems to have come from a creative place. But THIS song just seems like a sell out. This is pop music 101. It is the first LP song where I got the sense that they weren't even trying.

This is good in Linkin Park standards (when it comes to meaning) but unfortunately, it's not in beat or genre or anything, and they did it okay, but it was not that powerful as the others. Go listen to Hybrid Theory, very powerful and great beat. RIP Chester. - MissRWBY202

This song sounds just like a million other pop songs on the radio. Look, I'm all for LINKIN PARK evolving but this song seems more like it's pandering to the masses instead of being creative and original.

I was too hyped for hearing "Heavy" before listen the song and absolutely devastated it. - 05yusuf09

2 Robot Boy

You know, to be honest, this list should've never exist. There is no such thing as a bad Linkin Park song.

Who put this here? , This song was amazing!

This list is backwards to me. This is definitely their best song. (In my opinion. ) I mean, what is there to hate about this song? Sure, it's different from Hybrid Theory and Meteora but seriously? This is the only song along with The Catalyst, Waiting For The End and The Little Things Give You Away and several other songs that give me insane goosebumps.

3 The Little Things Give You Away

HOW could this be so hated? You guys just don't get 3-4 timed songs.

This song is about the tsunami, the people don't understand the lyrics, I thought it was bad til' I understood what it truly means

This song is a masterpiece. I mean seriously you guys don't get the lyrics and everything. And why the heck is robot boy here? The one who created this list should kill himself.

This isn't bad lololol it’s soft cute and still gives you that good feeling about linkin park

4 Battle Symphony Battle Symphony

Shouldn't this be first? It's definitely more poppy than the other songs on the album - wrongway360

At least heavy has good lyrics

Lol props to whoever put this here

in my opinion the only thing I like about this song is the lyrics, even though they aren't as strong as other LP songs. - wrests

This song sucks!
The Lyric is pretty good, have to say.
But...I've listened to 70+ LP songs.
And this one's the WORST!
And this is also, The Only LP song...that I hated...😢
I never thought I'd hate a Linkin Park song.

5 Good Goodbye Good Goodbye

Worst than heavy - Th3Zm0nst3r

This is probably one of the only bad lp songs. It's so commerical and lacks any meaning whatsoever.

The one thing I didn't like about this song was stormzy was in it

The worst track on Linkin Park's only bad album, One More Light. This track contains everything wrong with modern pop: a generic slow R&B chorus, autotune, and some dumbass rapping.

6 Skin to Bone

I, honestly, think this song is good.


7 Sorry for Now

I actually really like this song except for the weird electronic part

I love linkin park and I respect their new Album and all their different styles. so I am really welcome to changes but this song is nasty. the high pitched child voice and the nasty Standard beat is really awful

I love LP and I think OML was a pretty good Album, but this song is so terrible sounding with the high pitch, the electronica experimentals and so on... sorry guys but this song is just bad

8 Hands Held High

This was the best song on the album other than What I've Done. This song has no reason to be on this list period!

WHAT!?!? This is one of the best songs EVER! WHO would vote for THIS!?!?

This song is really good. I love the lyrics. Who on earth put this song here?

Which retarded person made this list?

9 The Messenger

It is not their best song but I don't think it should be at the bottom.

No come on. This isn't bad!

The only complaint I have about this song is that Chester sounds like he's straining his voice while singing during some parts of the song. Aside from that, this song is not that bad. Definitely better than anything on One More Light,

This song is actually good - ethanwakeman

10 Burn It Down

This is one of the best rock songs of all time! This is ridiculous! - Alpha101

Whoever added this song - YOU ARE A STUPID who knows nothing about music.

This flatline of fuzz should be #1. When a four-bar mediocre rap verse is the best part of the song, you don screwed up. - WonkeyDude98

I don’t like that it’s electronic.

The Newcomers

? Faint

Generic, boring, worst song - TheDarkOne_221b

The Contenders

11 Jornado Del Muerto

Burn it down shouldn't be so up in the worst songs :(

Just plain sucks, enough said.

This is terrible

The ones who voted for tracks like "jornada del muerto" "the radiance", etc.. you are so estupid, this are not really songs itself, they are small-transitory songs to make the next tracks sound bertter

12 In Between

Little things give you away is one of my favorite Linkin Park song and it is at no. 2? What? And why is messenger at number 1? You guys are insane!

Crappy song, why The Messenger even on this list?

Hands down the worst Linkin Park song. I'm just going to pretend this song never happened!

This song is simply HORRIBLE. Look, Robot Boy, Burn It Down, The Catalyst and others are very lively. See the fantastic lyrics of Robot Boy! How can it be worse than the LP? NOT ONLY ROCK IS GOOD. The A Thousand Suns is great, anyone who says otherwise is a damn fool. See the review on Jordy Katsko and then talk to me about A Thousand Suns. The worst songs are In Between and remixes

13 High Voltage

This is a decent song though.

I love mikes rapping skills

Your Favortie Martian slightly ruined this.

14 The Catalyst

Who the hell put this on the list? Yes I know you guys hate A Thousand Suns but the catalyst is probably one of the only good ones on the album.

That was a good song, who put this here!

But this is probably the second most successful from a thousand suns best from thousand suns is waiting for the end

This song would be good without the dj electronic.

15 Breaking the Habit

This song is powerful. It's about addiction... Just saying, but it's still a powerful song, who would put this here?

This is Chester's favorite song that he has sung, and I love it

Who on earth put this song on this list...?

And who made this stupid list...i mean 'worst Linkin Park songs'... Does that make any sense...? Can please someone terminate this website for me...?

Who the hell likes this song. its not rock. its not metal. the lyrics are stupid so as the lyrics. every time I play meteoria and this song plays. I skip this song because it's so bad - Th3Zm0nst3r

So, it doesn't have to be rock or metal to be good. Also, nobody's listening isn't rock or metal yet you don't mind it. - TheDarkOne_221b

16 Until It Breaks

So much unpredictable, uncatchy rapping, there is no good flow and just not enough chester.

This is Pathetic. Not enough chester, horrible lyrics, pathetic singing, no rhythm, nothing redeeming.

This Is Not Music, This Is Filler - Cartoonnetworkfan1990

A muddled mess. The only LP song I hate.

17 Nobody Can Save Me Nobody Can Save Me
18 Empty Spaces

People who voted for Bleed It Out, The Catalyst, or any of their superb songs, you should be packed in the trunk of a dented car going down the Amazon.

I love how people hate Burn It Down and Robot Boy more than this 18 second filler.

This is hands down Linkin Park's most pointless songs. Also, what are good songs like Burn It Down and The Little Things Give You Away doing on the list?

What is the point of this song?

19 A Light That Never Comes

I love this song. They're know for having a unique style and this is unique

I love this song with its electrical fusion

I absolutely love this song.

Are you kidding? This is epic!

20 The Requiem
21 Dirt Off Your Shoulder / Lying from You

This is a very good song only because of its good background music.

22 Sharp Edges Sharp Edges

Its is such a good and addictive song. It was also Chester's favorite! - Johnalove

This song makes my ears bleed

23 Halfway Right

Why? WHY does Linkin Park think it's necessary to put "na na na"s in a song! Why?! And it felt like a sequel to Heavy, mainly because the beats were somewhat similar and they were the only two songs Chester had writing credits on off of One More Light, and I didn't care for that song, so I really didn't need a sequel!

Personally I do like this song, one of the better songs of this album. - Johnalove

24 The Radiance

Worst linkin park song ever

25 Big Pimpin' / Papercut

Well...For the most part, Linkin Park has no songs that can be considered bad. This is an exception. However, it is half Jay-Z.

26 Invisible
27 Blackout

From someone who likes both "Meteora" and "One More Light", this is by far the worst and dumbest Linkin Park song. I've heard better sounds coming from my butthole.

Horriblie song, just HORRIBLE SONG! Chester's screams and the DUBSTEP part!... OH MY GOD, HOLY CRAP, JUST HORRIBLE! :S

Note: But Mike's part and singing is beautiful!

If not the worst Linkin Park song, then the worst song on the album.

This song makes me want to throw up.

28 Jigga What / Faint
29 Hit the Floor

Yeah! It's so catchy, it got stuck in my head 5 times and I couldn't stop singing it.

What the hell this song is catchy as hell

It is cool. - Johnalove

30 My December

I love this song... it is relaxing and calm... it deserves to be this far down the list! - Lem

Too slow and boring for me to listen to this song! If yoy want to listen to better songs like Burn it Down or Blackout, you should stick with the better songs because it might rock your planet! ;D

How stupid is this... ? This should be number 1 on the list! This list sucks badly

31 H! Vltg3

I do not like this remix, especially the featured artist's lines!

Why does everyone hate on this song its one of the most if not the most rappiest song by LP - MrPuggy

32 Izzo / in the End
33 One More Light

This is not only the saddest Linkin Park song, but it is a good song overall, I think it is disrespectful for Chester for this song being in this list. - Johnalove

Not To Offend Any Of You People But In My Opinion One More Light Is The Most Pointless And Overrated Linkin Park Song Of All Time. The Lyrics Are A Cringe, The Beat Is So Boring, And ''Well I Do'' Is Possibly The Worst Lyric Ever. It's Not Even Catchy, But The Main Problem I Have With This Song Is THERE IS NOT A SINGLE SCREAM FROM CHESTER, But I Know A Lot Of People Like This Song So Please Respect My Opinion

How is this on here at all?!

The album is different than there old albums so why would there be screaming if it’s a more pop inspired album

34 Bleed It Out

I absolutely love this one! I love Mike's part and everything about it!

This song is like Faint, so it shouldn't suck

I love this song!

This song is the worst song by far. This song is like a huge turd on your door mat. You're thinking to yourself... Really. Who would do that. that's what I think about when I think of this song.

35 Numb / Encore

This is the best song on the album! I love it so much

36 When They Come for Me

What I like thousand suns hunting party minutes till midnight and hybrid theory and Meteora don't care if it's a remixed album Linkin Park will be amazing no matter what song!

This song sucks. The entry music was damn irritating. Mike's rapping was nyc but Chester was at his worst. The ending was so horrible that I couldn't believe it was Linkin Park. But the worst music according to me is the Indian music they even copied the tune from the worst Linkin Park song. If you pay attention to Chester's chorus you will find it that you have heard this time in Hindi films or T.V. shows.

37 Waiting for the End

"The hardest part of ending is starting again" is just awesome people, this is one of their best

This song is great. End of story. - AnonymousChick

I hate this song! This is there worst song ever! This should be one of the first ones on the list


38 Powerless

I use to hate this song so much but not anymore. It is still my least favorite Linkin Park song though.

I love this song! Why is it one of the worst? - AnonymousChick

Powerless is a good song with great lyrics. I love it so much!

I love LP but this songs is worst than Eminem's Fack...and that's a bad song.

39 Wretches and Kings
40 Mark the Graves

I consider this (not drawbar) the instrumental song for The Hunting Party album

What is this song

Ok, this songs is absolutely amazing, just like every LP song, but it's kinda disappointing. - rishal21

41 Numb

BIG idiot who created this list numb is called their best song song and its in the worst songs really? Idiots... You should vote songs in a thousand suns that have benn awful but not songs from meteora or hybrid theory they are simple great

This is their best song! - Alpha101

It is the best song ever shouldn't be here

It's their best, it doesn't deserves to be here. - Johnalove

42 Nobody's Listening

Only song from meteora I hate it gets stuck in my head and its annoying especially the noise in the background. No their worst ( basically anything after minutes to midnight or before the hunting party) but man its annoying

So ironic that the best Linkin Park Album has the worst Linkin Park song!

I only like the chorus

Such a lame song. So boring and no epic breakdown.

43 Tinfoil
44 In My Remains
45 Rhinestone (Xero)
46 Enth E ND

The rap and constant stopping of the music sucks! - Lem

47 Reading My Eyes
48 Lies Greed Misery

I love this band and this album, but not this song

The background music of the track doesn’t seem to match with the vocals, the delivery doesn’t match the words, and the whole track just feels off. One of their worst songs in my opinion (behind almost anything from Recharged, and a few things from their One More Light Album. Nothing seems right about it. Background information would have it that Chester was sick during the recording of Living Things, and it definitely feels like he must’ve been sick here, because nothing about his delivery and rarely does his tone seem to match the background track. Mike’s sections aren’t much better either. Just a track that, somewhat like “Until It Breaks” just feels like album filler.

49 Cure for the Itch

I Think This Is The Baddest Song From Linkin Park From Hybrid Theory (Since 2000) Album... - RaminLp

Hardly Any Words In It - Cartoonnetworkfan1990

Worst Linkin Park song

50 What I've Done

The lyrics are insane? Are You that big of an idiot? They're amazing lyrics with a beautiful message you moron. And a song doesn't need to have a catchy melody to be good (despite the fact this song has one of the catchiest melodies I've heard in a Linkin Park song). A Beautiful Song With an amazing message, one of Linkin Parks best songs

Beautiful song, awesome video. Great message. What more do you need

This song is one of the worst linkin park songs ever. The lyrics are inane, the melody is one of the least catchiest I have ever heard AND it's overrated!

Love it
