The musical artists that have made some of the worst songs of 2017.

The Top Ten

1 Katy Perry Katy Perry Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (Katy Perry) was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. Katy Perry is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF. more.

I've never really been a fan of Katy, but I've never had a problem with her too bad. Some of her songs are admittedly quite catchy. But 2017 has not been her year, with disappointing album sales, and extremely gross or hypocritical songs (Chained To The Rhythm is criticizing the pop music style that she made to gain the fame, Bon Appetit is gross and is an unfortunate implication of pro-cannibalism). - Swellow

I think we all agree she sounded like she was high on something when she said "No barriers, no borders" as a response the Manchester bombing. - jrodz

"We should all open our borders and be welcome with open arms! " LMFAO Katy is a moron. - DCfnaf

She used to be a very pretty woman (see picture), but then turned into a Miley Cyrus-like lesbian (she's probably a lesbian now let's face it.) - Teravolt1422

I think u might have misunderstood what I meant. I wasn't hating on danceable songs (I actually LOVE dance pop music), I was just saying that it was hypocritical that Katy was hating on pop music yet still makes it a pop song!

England is my city. What has humanity become

His entire "Last Text" album sucked. Don't even get me started on "Bingo". - DCfnaf

This untalented brat still a thing? - DaisyandRosalina

How dare you put him on this list?! He's not even a musician... - PhenomentalOne

Thank GOD his EP flopped! Bye bye Sartorius, your 15 minutes of fame are up!

He makes country rap music, which is terrible by the way. He made one of my worst nightmares come true. I don't hate country as much anymore, I just hate country rap and a few mainstream country artists like Florida Georgia Line. - AnimeDrawer

Someone Get Rid Of This Retard. - AlphaQ

Made two of the worst songs of the year, he made "Drinkin' Too Much" and "Body Like a Backroad". - DCfnaf

5 Kodak Black Kodak Black

Sucks, worst rapper ever. Tunnel Vision is garbage, the beat sounds all out of tune, and he talks with autotune rather than rap, and the lyrics are awful and are basically saying that he is a criminal. Even MattyBraps is better than him, at least MattyBRaps does not sound as dreadful. - AnimeDrawer

Tunnel Vision is Doom. -2/10 - AlphaQ

He made "Tunnel Vision" this year and I don't think any song to come out this year will top it in sheer awfulness.

EDIT: "First Day Out" managed to be worse than this.'s still from Kodak Black. - DCfnaf


Please explain why these guys are not on the first page. Their album was atrocious. - DCfnaf

7 Blood on the Dance Floor Blood on the Dance Floor Blood on the Dance Floor is an American scene duo currently consisting of Dahvie Vanity and Fallon Vendetta that formed in 2006. Former members include Jayy von Monroe (2009-2016) and Garrett Ecstasy (2009). All of them provided vocals to the project. more.

These guys are the worst artist besides cup cake ever! - EliHbk

This honestly goes without saying, let's be real here. "Ressurection Spell" was passable but "Love Like Voodoo" was horrendous. - DCfnaf

Should be number 1 on the list, Bon Appetit is still better than Love Like Voodoo and all the songs they released this year. All their songs sound the same, they have no chemistry or try out new styles. They have meaningless, boring songs, with no complexity to the lyrics and the beats are terrible and repetitive. Plus, Dahvie Vanity cannot sing whatsover, his voice always ruins the songs and I heard him sing without autotune, and he sounds so bad, I want to rip out my ears. The female vocalist, or fangirl, does not sound so bad. - AnimeDrawer

BotDF are still relevant? how depressing. - Teravolt1422

8 Future Future

He continues to ruin literally every song he is featured in. - DCfnaf

This guy should retire seriously he ruins every song he is in. - DaisyandRosalina

After I finished Honest, I hate him more than ever. What's worse is that he ruins potentially good songs. First Maroon 5's Cold, now Ariana Grande's Everyday. What's wrong with this noncey oaf? - AlphaQ

9 Machine Gun Kelly Machine Gun Kelly Colson Baker, better known by his stage names MGK and Machine Gun Kelly, is an American rapper and actor, from Cleveland, Ohio.

He's the only rapper I like and he still kinda sucks! - EliHbk

Electronic posers - Teravolt1422

But they are so cute and sexy how can you hate them?

How boring. - DaisyandRosalina

Ugh! I hate them! They are so rude, disturbing and ANNOYING! My mom hates them too and I can see why. They never stop swearing in some songs (i.e. Bloodstream and Break Up Every Night), or in interviews, their music is a disgrace to EDM (listen to ZEDD, he's better than these skanks), and they never stop being inappropriate druggies. People like Camila Cabello (she was originally going to collab with them for Closer) and Coldplay shouldn't bother with these HORRIBLE men!

12 Iggy Azalea Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

Iggy created "Mo Bounce", which topped "Team" as her worst song. - DCfnaf

Iggy Azalea's career died ages ago - GrimmShady

"Mo Bounce" may be the worst 2017 song. - DaisyandRosalina

Kill it with fire. - DMZABO

13 Fame on Fire
14 Linkin Park Linkin Park Linkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members include Chester Bennington (vocals), Mike Shinoda (rapping vocals, pianist), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture more.

It's a shame because I had high hopes for Linkin Park's new album before "Heavy" was released. I've always loved Linkin Park, and if anything, I believe their albums since (and including) "Minutes to Midnight" have produced material superior to their first two albums. But "One More Light" was a real disappointment for me. Still, I'm looking forward to what the band will do in the future. - dan99

I'm not sure if any band could have a worse year than Linkin Park in 2017. Their lead singles spelled doom right from the start. Their album bombed, both critically and commercially. They made enemies with their fanbase. They've done so badly that people are questioning whether they were ever good in the first place. - Zach808

Even if their last album was stupid and I'm not their biggest fan, I hope Chester Bennington rests in peace and I send my condolences. - DCfnaf

RIP Linkin Park - Neonco31

I personally don't get the appeal of her and her garbage. Her lyrics are just ridiculous to me. - DCfnaf

Who likes her crappy music? I already know she's awful.

I legit want her to lose the ability to speak, forever! - EliHbk

They Basically Swang Their Golf Clubs At Yung Negus. -1/10 - AlphaQ

"Swang" happened this year. I don't get how these two and BOTDF are famous. - DCfnaf

I loved their san francisco album but everything else they've done has been trash. - GrimmShady

Surely 20+ years in the running hasn't transferred you to pop.
Oh wait, it has. - naFrovivuS
