Worst One Direction Songs

If you're a "Directioner" please don't give me crap and complaints. Just stop reading from here if you have a problem.

The Top Ten

1 What Makes You Beautiful

I'm sorry Can you Please forgive Me for The last Time.

It is a disgusting song about a white girl.

Is there an option here that allows me to vote for all of these songs?

How can it be the best and worst song I don't really understand

2 Best Song Ever

The title is false advertising - boomman149

Should be called the worst song ever. - funnyuser

Its title is misleading... - HTML_RuleZ_D00D

This song is cheesy and a little fake - but it's a funny song. They're making fun of themselves.

3 Little Things

Oh. My. Gosh. This song is terrible. It talks about how he'll love her even with her "back dimples, fat thighs, freckles, etc" It's basically putting her down but at the same time saying how he'll love her anyway. "I won't let these little things slip out of my mouth. But if I do, if I do, it's about what they add up to" So basically you're telling her you won't say anything about her fat ass thighs or freckles but you'll say it in a song? What the hell is wrong with you? Everybody has insequrites but we don't need to express them in a song about a girl you "love" And the fact that they're singing about no girl in particular is really stupid. - nadiamarie0014

Why put the guys down they are just doing what they love... Singing and yes everybody has insecurity and this song says it but its also a beautiful song and I know every direction agrees with me that this song and the boys has helped in many ways as for their other songs little things is a song to every girl showing/telling them that even though they are insecure they still love us... And that is all I have to say and don't go judging one direction for making songs like this one all it means is they have hearts unlike other people in this world

Oh my god! What is wrong with you all?! This song talks about being perfect just the way you are! I don't understand how you can not receive that message! I am a huge fan of 1D and I don't think this list should even exist, but Little Things? This is a beautiful song that makes girls feel good about themselves. The boys sing about how even if you have flaws, you are amazing just the way you are. I think this song should come off of the list right now!

Yeah this song is a little offensive...but it was meant to have a good message. Ed Sheeran wrote it for them back when they didn't write their own songs.

4 One Thing

Why are you liking this song? It's so boooring!

What the hell! This is a good song - 0744rose

Hey this song is good so better remove it from this list...

Who the hell put this song in this list, it's one of the best song by 1D.

5 Kiss You

SECOND WORST SONG IN HISTORY! Only Rebecca Black's Friday is ahead of it. - greatesttop10s

I don't know why people hate this song! It's not a very deep or meaningful song, it's just a fun song about youth and love! Who really cares? It was catchy and sweet.

This song is awesome. As soon as I heard about one direction and this was the first song I listened to I absolutely fell in love with them and who ever put this song on here is tuuupppiiiddd and needs mental help "thank u whirlpool" the truth be told

Its worst song ever

6 Rock Me

This song is cheesy and overrated in the fanbase, but it's fine. Just overrated.

This crap is ripped off from We Will Rock You by Queen, and the Worst Song Ever is poorly ripped off from Baba O' Riley by The Who. - malamJONES

Rips off Queen.

Really? This is their only decent song in my opinion.

7 One Way or Another

I suppose it's for charity, but seriously did they not understand that the song was about stalking? When Debbie Harry sang it she managed to blend sexiness and seeming slightly menacing perfectly, then One Direction turned it into a meaningless bland pop song.

What the heck is wrong with you people? They did it to make money for charity.

Why would they think they have the right to cover this song?

The original was one of the greatest songs of all time. This version is just...No. - RiverClanRocks

8 Story of My Life

This song isn't too bad. At first it was good then I actually understood the lyrics and it has NO point to it what so ever. Harry explains how he takes home a girl and is chasing her and blah blah blah. Same old story all over again. - nadiamarie0014

Hate it. Enough said.

It's good but a little boring

What are those lyrics

9 Live While We're Young

This song is about sex. Tonight lets get some. Really guys 10-12 year old or listening to your music.

This song was made to be popular, and it was. It's unfair when people judge them for this song, when they have many songs that they write for themselves and not the charts.

I used to be a 1D fan. This song is so bad I can't even stand it. Just because you are mature does not mean that all your fans are. And can you make a song which is not based on girls? A song to which ANYONE can relate to?

All of you should keep your opinions to yourself. Stop criticizing them. They are amazing. You don't even know what your talking about.

10 Midnight Memories

How is this not higher! They ripped off definitely Leppard, and when the blonde, Irish one ( I forget his name) played a guitar solo on the X factor. But his guitar wasn't plugged in. Fail.

It is THE worst song

It's a very god song! I listen to this minimum 5 times in 24 Hrs

Not half bad

1 Comment

The Contenders

11 Up All Night

Perfect reason to hate them

Why is this even a song? It's talking about sexual things AGAIN. What kind of message does this send to young bitchy "directioners? " To go whore around. Yet again - nadiamarie0014

12 Gotta Be You

I don't like this song

This song is so good how can it be in the list!

It's gotta be YOOOUU ooh it's got to be YOOOUU

13 Na Na Na

Out of all of the songs on this list this is the only truly annoying one. But that's why it never made it onto an album. Just be grateful for that.

Can we please acknowledge that the chorus of this song is "First we're like Na, Na, Na, and then we're like, yeah, yeah, yeah."

Weird title terble words good tune

This is THE worst One Direction song in my opinion. Not only are the lyrics surprisingly meaningless, barely anyone has solos on this. It's only Liam, Harry harmonizes with him on some bits, and Zayn sings in the chorus. That's it.
Also, yeah, the chorus is LITERALLY "We're like Na, Na, Na, then we go Yeah, yeah, yeah." which is absolutely stupid.

14 Drag Me Down

Hey, you should see America's Got Talent Judge Cuts 2016, one episode had Zayn as the special judge. I know the history of One Direction such as how they got along. You should learn it.

I like this song


I cry when I listen to it...miss zayn so much

15 You & I

The only thing good about this song are zayn's vocals

Why is this only number 21? Make it higher!

This song’s melody just doesn’t go with the song it sounds awful.

16 Steal My Girl

I don't hate the song itself, I don't find it THAT bad, what I hate about it are the lyrics, I mean: steal my girl? Girls are not some possession that can be "stolen", nobody is, everybody is free to make their own decisions! - sofiav

Say how creepily pushy What Makes You Beautiful was, or how painfully hard the band was trying on Perfect, THIS is atrocious. - WonkeyDude98

I understand that One Direction is one of my least favourite bands of all time, but Steal My Girl is one of my most hated songs of all time. It is sexist and the only sexual orientation it is fine with is heterosexuality. I, The Ultimate Daredevil deserve so much better for my opinion on One Direction in favour of Fall Out Boy. Thank god 1D split to give its men a more positive reputation. Unfortunately, though, Harry Styles is against The Weeknd for being the (ex-)boyfriend of Selena Marie Gomez. No wonder I will to beat up Selena Gomez. Because she demands guys to win her heart. No wonder she still lives with her mother and baby sisters.

17 Forever Young

Forever young is 1 of the best songs in 1d

18 Night Changes

This song is really sweet and lovely and all the boys wrote it, however, I wish it hadn't been a single. There were way better songs on the album that would have been better singles. The reason people don't like One Direction is because their best music isn't being represented on the charts.

Painful to my ears!

Did you see the video it is hilarious

Its gonna make me die

19 18

This is the most beautiful song ever

Okay, um, yeah, you can shut your mouth. I don't care if you like them or not, that's your opinion, your choice. But they are some of the humblest, most generous people you will ever see. What is wrong with you--giving death threats to people because you don't like their music? Maybe you need help? Besides, they didn't even WRITE this song, so if you want to blame someone blame Ed Sheeran, who, by the way, is an amazing songwriter.

I can write a better song LIKE I'm ALREADY DONE! Twinkle twinkle little star, imma hit you with my car,throw you off a tree so high, hope you break neck and DIE,twinkle twinkle star,PLEASE STOP SINGING CAUSE YOU STINK!

Ed Sheeran wrote this song. You can't write a song because you stole that off the internet, please be original - ZaeeJM

20 They Don't Know About Us

This is seriously my favorite song from one direction no matter what people say! so listen to it

sick tune

What this song is good+funny

21 Save You Tonight

The tunes pretty good but u suck idiots. # fartybutholes

22 Perfect

Its basically a rip-off of Style by Taylor Swift. I like that the boys are writing their own music, but the similarities are too similar between the two songs.

When I first heard this song, I absolutely despised it. That's all I have to say about this song.

But... I actually love this song... I will probably cry...

23 C'mon C'mon

This is the worst song of our generation by FAR

This song is so good.

24 A.M.

This is the only 1D song that has swear words.

25 I Would

One Direction is a great band. I wish haters would stop putting them down! It's infuriating having to see and listen to all of these nasty comments. I have a message for all of the haters out there: One Direction has broken up. So, tell me, are you happy now?

This song is stupid

Terrible song

I am JUBILANT that 1D broken up. These racist, annoying, meaningless, uncatchy bastards need more hate and disrespect. Thank God Zayn went solo. - The Ultimate Daredevil

26 Wonderwall

Wonderwall by Oasis is a favourite song. When I just read this and saw they made a copy of it, I was horrified. This has just ruined my holidays, I swear.

That was the best of my dad's


27 Through the Dark

Dude can they even hear themselves? like I hate it

This song shouldn't be on this list! True, there are bad One Direction songs but this isn't one. Louis and Liam worked really hard on writing it. It's really sweet!

This song is not like 2

This is the ugliest song ever

You had a silly comment this song is amazing

28 Nobody Compares
29 No Control

Worst song ever!

30 Infinity

Infinityyy, infinity... This songs is way too slow and boring

31 History
32 Summer Love
33 Alive
34 Does He Know?
