Top 10 Worst Rock Songs of 2018

2018 was a mediocre year for rock music, it also had a few awful songs here and there let's get to them and some of them make you questionable if they're rock music at all.

The Top Ten

1 We're Tired of It - Ministry We're Tired of It - Ministry

I think their Twilight Zone is worse than this (Twilight Zone has bad vocal delivery, tasteless eclectic combination of music genres - there are turntables, harmonica, industrial rock, and... some metal) - Metal_Treasure

I actually like this one. I didn't hate the new Ministry album like everyone else, but it definitely was a mediocre release. This track is kind of fun. - cjWriter1997

Sounds like a mix, of Rage Against the Machine if they sucked... I don't know how else to describe it.

This is worse than Natural in my opinion. - Userguy44

2 Natural - Imagine Dragons Natural - Imagine Dragons

I actually liked this song, especially with Dan's anger-laced rapid vocal delivery. With all the past Imagine Dragon's catalogue getting a bit derivative this song provided a nice touch of variety to their new album. - Joeljohns249

Very overrated... -Avery

Actual trash, continuing ID's trend of producing worse and worse music with more and more popularity

This is like the only song from their new album that at least had something going for it. - cjWriter1997

3 Bulletproof - Godsmack Bulletproof - Godsmack

Pretty average, and forgettable in every way.

I forgot that this existed. - Cyri

4 Twilight Zone - Ministry
5 I Am an Outsider - Three Days Grace

Great album, terrible song. -Avery

I used to like this band, but christ this song is awful.

6 One of the Drunks - Panic! at the Disco

Garbage, is the best word I can think of describe this song. It's really foul, moldy, disgusting garbage.

Sounds bad from the title - Camaro6

This is rock? No way. - Cyri

7 Break It to Me - Muse

Huge Muse fan here, but their latest album was probably their weakest to date, and this song ranks amongst their very worst. - SuperSonic17

Finally a Muse fan who isn't a fanboy that called every Muse song good just because it's a Muse song. This album is incredibly weak compared to their earlier stuff. - Userguy44

It sounds extremely poppy. - Userguy44

8 Bohemian Rhapsody - Lil Meerkat

This is a mediocre rap cover, also it was released in 2019 not 2018.

Not a rock song lol. - Userguy44

Not rock

9 Stronger on Your Own - Disturbed

Probably, one of the few Disturbed songs that I genuinely dislike.

Actually this song is really good. - Mesel

I actually like this. - Cyri

10 Hash Pipe - Toto

A horrible cover, of a otherwise decent Weezer song.

This is Toto? - Userguy44

This cover was Toto’s response to Weezer's cover of a Toto song - Africa. Haha 😊 - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Do Not Disturb - Halestorm

A song about sex, and a very bad one at that...

12 Thunder - Imagine Dragons

I definitely agree that this song does sound pretty poppy but it does have a guitar solo in it at the end though. -Avery

Which humans called this a rock song? There is no electric guitar and the chorus is very poppy sounding. - Userguy44

I hate this song too, but how is this considered rock? It's clearly pop music. - Smash64

This song was released in 2017 not 2018.

13 Whatever It Takes - Imagine Dragons

How is this song not rock?! It has an awesome guitar riff and solo! Just cause this song is pop rock doesn't mean it's not rock. -Avery

Not rock. - Userguy44

Also 2017 not 2018.

14 Blue on Black - Five Finger Death Punch

A awful cover, of a song and it's really grating to listen to.

So let me get this straight? I'm not allowed to have opinions on a opinion site? Real mature there...

I can't believe this exists. It just makes me grimace. - Gg2000

15 Bastards - Machine Head

It's sad that a decent band released a very bad album. And it has 15 full-length songs... (all songs are over 4 minutes so it's like an endless torture). - Metal_Treasure

16 Eulogy - Machine Head

Christangrant made a post about this album, so for details go to - Rocking With Regret: Catharsis by Machine Head - Metal_Treasure

17 Walk on Water - Thirty Seconds to Mars

Not rock, but I like this song. - Userguy44

18 More Beautiful - Hoobastank

I couldn't help but cringe at this song, as far as Pop Rock goes this is definitely awful.

19 Triple Beam - Machine Head

When a metal band goes core-ish, that's a bad sign. - Metal_Treasure

20 High Hope - Panic! at the Disco

I didn't know they made a song called High Hope too. - Userguy44

21 Get Up and Fight - Muse
22 Young and Menace - Fall Out Boy
23 Over It - Bullet for My Valentine
24 Right Left Wrong - Three Days Grace
25 Love Me or Leave Me - Three Days Grace
26 Nothing to Lose but You - Three Days Grace
27 Youngblood - 5 Seconds of Summer

Again not rock. It's a mediocre emo song. - Userguy44

5SOS claim to be rock, but they aren't.

28 Rescue Me - Thirty Seconds to Mars
