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 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.

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 suuucks! Although linkin park is one of my favorite bands.

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 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.

4 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.

It was a really good song.I think the worst is WHEN THEY COME FOR ME

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 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 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

10 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

The Contenders

11 High Voltage

This is a decent song though.

I love mikes rapping skills

Your Favortie Martian slightly ruined this.

12 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.

13 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

14 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

15 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


This is my favorite Linkin Park song... - KingSlayer93316

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.

A muddled mess. The only LP song I hate.

Too much rap. sounds crappy

17 Nobody Can Save Me Nobody Can Save Me
18 The Requiem
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 Radiance

Worst linkin park song ever

21 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!

22 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

23 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?

24 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

25 H! Vltg3

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

Defecate on @MrPuggy!

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

26 Invisible
27 One More Light

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

28 Izzo / in the End
29 Bleed It Out

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

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.

30 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.

31 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.

32 Wretches and Kings
33 Jigga What / Faint
34 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.

35 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

36 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

Should be much higher. It's a horrible piece of "music". The band's instruments seem all jumbled up in an unneat pile, whilst Chester and Mike take turns to talk into the microphone. - IronSabbathPriest

37 Blackout

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!

This is one of they're best in my opinion! Catchy tune, catchy lyrics

Are you kidding me?
I would say Blackout is Linkin Park's best post-Meteora song.
And I love all their music.

38 Tinfoil
39 In My Remains
40 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.

41 Rhinestone (Xero)
42 Reading My Eyes
43 Enth E ND

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

44 Rebellion

This is the best song Linkin Park has ever made till date! I can't believe it's on this list! I just want this song to be removed from the list. Please.

45 Frgt/10
46 The Summoning
47 I'll Be Gone
48 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

49 Lies Greed Misery

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

50 Castle of Glass (Mike Shinoda Remix)

I am a huge LP fan and I am a mega follower of Mike. There was a time when I wanted to be mike Shinoda. But sorry Mike, this is the worst remix you ever made. The original sounded much better. But still your Victimized remix is great.
