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

Oh this is just sickening just so sickening

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

2 "She gotta big booty, so I called her "Big Booty"" - 2 Chainz, Birthday Song

He's got some bad lyrics so I'll call him "Bad Lyrics" - Martinglez

I drank some bleach so now they call me bleach drinker

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

3 "F***** magnets how do they work?"- Insane Clown Posse, Miracles

They attract to other magnetic surfaces.
There, your question's answered.

Stick it on metal dumbass!

Betcha he never found out how they work

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

4 "Yo, shoutout to all you kids buying bottle service with your rent money! Respect!" - Katy Perry, This Is How We Do

Yo, shoutout to all you chavs hiding from the debt collectors! Respect! - Entranced98

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

That's disgusting!

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

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

BrokenCYDE is not funny. - Swampert02

6 "Boobs boobs boobs boobs Lotta boobs" Nicki Minaj, I Endorse These Strippers

Was she high when she wrote that lyric?

What, The lyric sounds like it was written by a pervert. - Swampert02

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

What even is this...?

7 "Put molly all in her champagne, she didn't even know it" - Rick Ross, U.O.E.N.O.

Hey! How rude!

That's ' disrespectful!

RAPE! - MKBeast

8 "If the light is off, then it isn't on." Hilary Duff - So Yesterday

This lyric isn't that bad! It's educational!
At least in terms of if you're younger than 7.

The worst one I've probably ever heard next to 2 Chainz

I never knew that, thanks for telling me - Catacorn

This is probably the WORST lyrics I have heard from all the list. Get this in the top 5. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

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

Oh wow, that’s not a very good descriptive word. I feel like you may need to go back to third grade and learn about descriptions.

Very terrible-y

10 "I wanna see your peacock, -cock, -cock" - Katy Perry, Peacock

Not the bird guys. Not the bird.

You want to see my pet bird? Okay!

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

The Contenders

11 "Don't get suicidal like ya friend, here's a casket, STEEZ burning in Hell, my burner's in my belt, I'm really killing s**t, you ni**as killing yourself" - Troy Ave, Badass

What? - JoPro

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

Uh I'm scared

That’s an offensive lyric.

12 "Put some new pictures up and quit denying your size; it's because of you that emo kids decide to die." - Brokencyde, Blame It On Tom

It’s because of you that bad lyrics actually exist.

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

Such an overrated song why do people love it so much

Best lyric by Eminem, it shows the true pain he had to live through. Fack is truly an inspirational song.

/s - Not_A_Weeaboo

Animal abuse. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

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

14 "I had better sex; but I don't complain cause it's better than my hand" - Borgore, Turn Around

What a jerk!

Horrendous lyric from the worst song ever made - DCfnaf

15 "You're a Stupid Hoe" - Nicki Minaj, Stupid Hoe

Why is she singing about herself

She's a stupid hoe but people still listen to her music

We all remember this one.

16 "She said 'I never wanna make you mad, I just wanna make you proud'. I said, 'Baby, just make me c** then don't make a sound.'" - Lil' Wayne, Bitches Love Me

End your life

Misogyny. Fantastic. - DCfnaf

17 "Give it to her in the worst way" - Chris Brown, "Birthday Cake"

You don’t want to upset people on their birthday!

By "worst way" do they mean 'knife'?

"Knife" can go both ways, depending on what you mean... - BlueTopazIceVanilla

18 "All the girls give it to me I ain't gotta take it" - Ron Browz, " Pop Champagne"
19 "It's wrong, wrong like Gaga's got a ding-dong" - Blood on the Dance Floor, It's On Like Donkey Kong

This made me laugh

At least Gaga has something Dahvie does not have; Actual talent. - Swellow

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

Oh wow, 5 Seconds Of Summer pays attention to what underwear their girlfriends wear.

5SOS should quit the music industry and become comedians!


21 "They say she young, I should've waited. She a big girl, dog when she stimulated" - Stimulated, Tyga

What in the living F?!

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

22 "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

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

That is a “type” though...

23 "I'd be the smartest man if I were invisible" - Clay Aiken, Invisble

He IS invisible.

And you aren’t. So you aren’t the smartest man.

24 "All my diamonds shine ‘cause they really diamonds" - Kevin Gates, Really Really

I bet you bought plastic ones from the dollar store.

Wow, I had no idea your diamonds where diamonds - LJJ207

25 "I get stupid on a n***a like I'm autistic." - Kodak Black, Up in Here

Autistic people aren't stupid - JoPro

Offensive to autistic people

26 "I think it's so cute and I think it's so sweet! How you let your friends encourage you to try and talk to me But let me stop you there Oh, before you speak" - Meghan Trainor, No
27 "He was a boy, she was a girl, can I make it anymore obvious?" - Avril Lavigne, Sk8er Boi

He was a girl, she was a boy, can I make it less obvious? - Userguy44

Okay then.

Nope, not at all. - cjWriter1997

28 "Hol up, man, did ya see her interior?" - Wiz Khalifa, We Dem Boyz

No one cares about the inside of someone’s house.

29 "You move like poetry You taste like pornography" - Blood On the Dance Floor, Cruel Pornography

*falls off cliff*

How does some one 'taste' like pornography? I can kinda understand the poetry one, but this, NOPE! - BlueTopazIceVanilla

30 "My anaconda don't want none unless you got buns hon" - Nicki Minaj, Anaconda

This should be higher

My ears don’t want no music unless you got good lyrics, hon.

31 "I know you like to thank your sh** don't stank, buy lean a little bit closer, see that roses really smell like poo-poo" - OutKast, Roses

How old is the singer? 5?

I'm cringing so hard. - Catacorn

I don’t care, this is so funny.

Roses from the local chavvy park obviously weren't the best inspiration for lyrics. - Entranced98

32 "In a French *** restaurant, hurry up with my damn croissants" - Kanye West, I Am a God.

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

He THINKS he is a god but he isn't he's just ridiculous.

He Is A Punk.

Mr. West, if it’s that bad, then just file a complaint!

33 "My p***y tastes like Pepsi Cola" - Lana Del Rey, Cola

Lana Del Rey likes masturbating? - Userguy44

I love Lana Del Rey’s songs, but this is horrible.

34 "Because Chinese food takes away my stress; now I'm going to go eat Panda Express" - Patrice Wilson, Chinese Food
35 "She can't sing, she can't dance, but who cares? She walks like Rihanna." - The Wanted, Walks like Rihanna

That kind offends me.

36 "I woke up with a strange tattoo Not sure how I got it, not a dollar in my pocket And it kinda looks just like you Mixed with Zach Galifianakis" - Hot Chelle Rae, Tonight, Tonight

This sounds like something Simple Plan would write. - DCfnaf

Honestly, the lead singer could be a great comedian - 445956

This is just really random.

HAHAAHAHAA This lyric is just plain laughable

37 "You should've had a check b***h!" - Rae Sremmurd, My X

And you should have had good lyrics.

This line is hilarious and true

This line is badass get it off the list

38 "Once I was 11 years old, My mama told me go get a wife or you'll be lonely." - Lukas Graham, 7 Years

Can it wait another 7 years?

What the heck! - Userguy44

And at the wedding, she was wearing a pink dress from Justice.

You can't ask your son to marry a girl at 11, dip $hit. Also who'd want to fall for this talentless hack? - AlphaQ

39 "Been a long time, I've been missing your body" - Chris Brown, Birthday Cake

Then he beat her up

Yes, it's been a long time because Rihanna got a restraining order placed, dimwit. - Swellow

And I haven’t been missing this song.

Because she was laughing as you walked into your jail cell, moron. - DCfnaf

40 "Tell me, is it true that men are from Mars, is that why they be acting bizarre?" - Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea, Pretty Girls

Is it true that this song is bad? Is that why the lyrics make me so mad?

What the...

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

That's essentially saying Drake looks like Squidward.

So you’re admitting you look like a girl?

Lil B, your resemblance to J.K. Rowling is as similar to how Halsey looks like Dahvie Vanity. - Swellow

what? - BlueTopazIceVanilla

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

Helen Keller was a dancer?

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

43 "Pillow talk that b***h, you's a homo" - Ace Hood, Ballin' Like A B***h

Do I need to say anything? - Swellow

44 "Lick, lick, lick, lick (I lick) I want to eat yo d**k (I do) But I can't f**k up my nails (I can't) So I'mma pick it up with chopsticks" - CupcakKe, Deepthroat

I heard this on musically before. It was mixed with dark horse.

See, CupcakKe is horrible! My parents would probably not let me use thetoptens if they knew this lyric was on here!

45 Let me educate ya, and I ain't talkin' book - Jake Paul, It's everyday bro

Why are you educating us? You’re the one who thinks England is a city!

You don't need a book to "educate" us. Get a pencil.

What does book have to do by educating someone? - Catacorn

46 "My new b--ch yellow, she bl-w that d--k like a cello" - Lil Yachty, Peek A Boo

Cello is a giant violin lol

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

47 "Every time I look at my d**k, I'm like holy s**t, that's a big d**k And every time I look at your d**k, I'm like holy s**t, that's a small d**k" - 3OH!3, My D**k

What is this lyric? - allamassal

That’s just weird.

Why would he be looking at your d***

48 "Raised on Biggie and Nirvana, we are the new Americana" - Halsey, New Americana

I like it though. The Biggie and Nirvana thing is a reference to how Halsey is biracial, not just randomly saying singer names.

49 "Lucky that my breasts are small and humble So you don't confuse them with mountains" - Shakira, Whenever, Wherever

As the visitor said, let the lyric speak for itself. It's on a level so bad it's good. - Swellow

I think this lyrics just speaks for itself

And I used to love this song... - Elina

what - StayAlive

50 "I'm in the fast lane, from L.A. to Tokyo." - Charli XCX, Fancy

I don't think you can drive in the ocean

You Could Drown

Introducing the Pacific Ocean. - DCfnaf

Okay then, looks like your car might sink in the ocean.
