Worst Lyrics of the 21st Century

Title says it all; The worst song and rap lyrics of the 21st century. In no particular order at first, but your vote and contributions can change that.

The Top Ten

1 "Beat that ***** up like Emmett Till" - Lil Wayne, Karate Chop

Emmett Till was a young black boy in the times of slavery who was brutally beaten to death (eye missing, face unrecognizable, cotton gin tied around his body) just becahse he whistled at a white woman. It was a very famous court case.

This was dangerously close to the worst song I've ever heard. Also, in my opinion this is Lil Wayne's and Future's worst song. - AlphaQ

Who is Emmett Till? - Catacorn

A black guy who flirted with a white woman and got beat up to death for it. - ProPanda

Oh god, help me. - naFrovivuS

Forget the 21st century - this is one of the most mindless lyrics in the history of music. - Entranced98

Honestly, I laughed. Even though this lyric is awful. - Catacorn

RAPE! - MKBeast

6 "Getting our nails did all Japanese-y" - Katy Perry, This is How We Do

Very terrible-y

7 "You make my pee-pee hard!" - Brokencyde, Sex Toys

If these lyrics aren't the worst lyrics out there than I don't know what is. This whole song is filled with garbage.

Am I supposed to be laughing or cringing? This is the worst lyric. - Catacorn

This is Brokencyde. What else do you expect from these kids. - MKBeast

BrokenCYDE is not funny. - Swampert02

9 "Go shove a gerbil up your *** through a tube" - Eminem, FACK

Animal abuse. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

I'd put every line from FACK in the Top 5. - AlphaQ

10 "I ain't got no type, bad bitches is the only thing that I like" Rae Sremmurd, No Type

Nice way to contradict yourself, Sremmurd. - SwagFlicks

I ain't got no talent... I can juggle, I can cartwheel, and hit meatheads with a mallet!

And by meatheads, I mean you Swae Lee. - WonkeyDude98

Even as the best song of the album, this is still low in quality. This sounds like 10 year old Tygas but better of course cause everyone is better than Tuga. - AlphaQ

Did you know that Rae Sremmurd backwards is "Ear Drummers"?
(Lol I know this is irrelevant.) - BlueTopazIceVanilla

The Newcomers

? "I get stupid on a n***a like I'm autistic." - Kodak Black, Up in Here
? "I'm in the fast lane, from L.A. to Tokyo." - Charli XCX, Fancy

Really? Why would you fall in love with a GOAT? - AlphaQ

12 "Shush, girl! Shut your lips! Do the Helen Keller and talk with your hips!" - 3OH!3, Don't Trust Me

I think the person singing this is the one who needs to shut his lips--- Oh, he's talking with his behind, sorry. - Swellow

13 "She looks so perfect standing there in my AmericanApparel underwear" - 5 Seconds of Summer, She Looks So Perfect

5SOS should quit the music industry and become comedians!

That type of lyrics is stupid. Who wrote it? An 18 year old? - DynastiNoble

This sounds like it was writen by an 8 year old - Batmanisagender

Mmhmm bitc*y minaj in a nutshell - TristGamer

15 "She can't sing, she can't dance, but who cares? She walks like Rihanna." - The Wanted, Walks like Rihanna

Since when does Rihanna have a distinctive walk? - NiktheWiz

Betcha he never found out how they work

They produce magnetic fields that draw metal towards them. That's how - DarkShadows

Google is your friend. - Zach808

Here is how to use the magnet:
1. take the magnet.
2. stick on a piece of metal.
3. be surprised. - Catacorn

I laugh mindlessly when I hear kids say, "I look up to Katy Perry, she's my favorite singer! I wanna be just like her when I grow up! Talented! " - TristGamer

Fun fact: Only male peacocks are called peacocks. Female peacocks are called 'peahen', and peahen and peacocks together are called 'peafowl'. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

19 "It's wrong, wrong like Gaga's got a ding-dong" - Blood on the Dance Floor, It's On Like Donkey Kong

I know that people like talking about the Emmett Till and the Big Booty line, but in this diss track against Joey Bada$$, Troy Ave makes light of the suicide of his friend, Captain Steez. I'll let that speak for itself. - djpenquin999

No wonder this guy’s latest album failed to even go Triple Plastic. This is too far. - Zach808

Kanye is so relatable. What is it with restaurants taking so long to make croissants, anyway? - BlarchBlaces

Someone should've told Patrice Wilson that Panda Express is not real Chinese food when he wrote this. - NiktheWiz

35 "Bitches suck my d*** cause I look like J.K. Rowling." - Lil B, Wonton Soup

I shouldn't have to explain this. Anyone who knows what a cello is should know what's wrong. - MKBeast

The worst thing ever - DarkShadows

Please, rappers - Before you make extremely excruciating rhymes at least try to make sure they make snese. - Swellow

When people corrected him, he said he thought a cello was what Squidward blows😂😂😂 - BlueTopazIceVanilla
