Worst Rock Songs of All Time
The Top Ten
While I won't burst in anger when I hear this song, I can't help but notice the song calling out "corporation games" while being one of the most corporate-sounding songs of all time. And does the synth-heavy arrangement sound like a theme song for any rock-and-roll event ("we built this city for rock and roll")? Or some poorly-produced corporate or public service video in the 1980s?
Are you kidding? I like that song!
Who put Aerials on here. Say what you like but Aerials is my favourite System of a Down song, so much meaning. This song however, sucks more than Tulisa's mouth! It's so bad, lack of inspiration, lack of quality and a disgrace to rock music!
Most ironic song ever. It calls out the "corporate games" of pop and how we need "rock and roll" while sounding poppy as heck. - Elijah_CookV 22 Comments
Stairway to Heaven is the 9th worst rock song of all time?... I hate my generation. It's like what The Who said, "Why don't you all just f-f-f-fade away! " - MontyPython
Seriously stairway to heaven on this list
Usually I don't like black veil brides. But this song is really good
I do hate this band, but this song is about the bullying Andy experienced in his childhood, so it is kind of messed up to put this here. - 445956V 16 Comments
Songs like this one are why ignorant people hate metal and rock music. This song is so awful, I don't even know how to properly respond to it. It really is that bad. It is definitely worse than Stairway to Heaven, Green Day, and Black Veil Brides. This song is even worse than Nickelback and Creed. Thankfully, this song appears to be an anomaly in their catalog, as their other stuff is more mediocre than bad. Maybe they could start a brand new subgenre called "mediocore".
Words can't explain how disoriented this song is. I am not here to disrespect anyone's opinions but you should listen to this yourself before calling it good just because it's a rock song. - SelfDestruct
This shouldn't count. It's not a song, it's just a bunch of noises that sort of sound like music.
Should be number 1. - 445956V 1 Comment
Absolutely abysmal. Hearing Scott Stapp try and scream his way through this sludgy C-list post-grunge instrumentation with some of the most meaningless nonsense I've heard in my life is an outright chore. My vote would go to Hinder's Lips of An Angel, but I saw this first. - WonkeyDude98
What?! Creed shouldn't be on this list! You people clearly have crappy music tastes.
This song was good until the radio played it literally six times in a single day and then it got very annoying.

Who the hell decided to add this song it is great and will be remembered for a long time unlike anything Justin beiber or adele have ever created
To put the best rock song ever on this list is madness
Madness? THIS. IS. SPARTA! But in all seriousness, why is THIS song, of all songs, on here? I could think of a MILLION other songs that are worse than this one! - ladybug375
If you have a look on the list for greatest rock songs of all time you'll see this song there. This was one of the best songs ever made, it should be no where near this list.
Whoever put this over here is retarded.V 87 Comments
The only reason why I voted for this song, was so I could announce that having 21 guns in 9th place on a list like this is pathetic!
What kind of a idiot dislikes a song like this?! But if you disagree with me then that's fine, but that's my opinion
Actually seeing this song on such a list really surprises me. Green Day are a talented band and are still popular today.
Why is this even on the list -_-
I love this song! - Elijah_CookV 27 Comments
Which idiot added this awesome song in this list?
An American idiot put this song here
Hell naw. somebody gon die
Great band started in the 90'sV 18 Comments
Whoever put A Perfect Circle here must be executed. - OnyxDash
Excuse me? Why is this here?
No that song is awesome. Whoever came with this list is an idiot. And this isn't a rock song it's a pop rock song
I don't like this song.
Who the freak put this on the list?! I ' LOVE THIS!
Best song of 2013. - Elijah_CookV 4 Comments
Straight up hate Nickelback.
First of all worst band ever terrible song and second of all who put stairway to heaven on this list it's the best song of all time
I don't hate Nickelback, I just enjoy hating them. As for this song, while it has a solid and pretty catchy riff, the lyrics are so sleazy I can't listen to the whole thing without cringing. Just no, Chad. No.
That's WHAT SHE SAIDV 12 Comments
Uh, a good majority of the songs on the list aren't even rock songs. Any-who, I've never a song so overplayed, so dull, so unbearable than this.
This crap doesn't even count as rock. And who the hell put Stairway To Heaven on this list!? It's not only the greatest rock song of all time, but also one of the greatest songs of all time, period.
I feel bad that this shows up before the smashing pumpkin's classic
Worst song ever. HORRIBLEV 9 Comments
This is one of the worst covers of all time - christangrant
This is worse than LB's cover of Behind Blue Eyes its that bad - christangrant
This song has become a meme for a very good reason, it is just terrible
LOOk aT this GrAAf - Elijah_Cook
Somebody idiot insert this song here
This was Tonic's best song, and one of the 90's best as well. Why is this 3 on the worst rock songs?
I just heard this & I truly regret for doing that... I'm voting for this. - Fan_of_Good_Music
This song is flawless... Lyrically and musically. This can't possibly be in the top 10 WORST rock songs EVER... Come on. I could see it not being someone's favorite or even disliking it, but the top 10 worst... Never. Same with Higher by Creed. You either love 'em or hate 'em, but, again, the worst?! Not by a long shot.V 1 Comment
I'm not into this song, but the rest of their paradigm shift album is pretty good.V 1 Comment
This song is amazing! Why is this here?
This is a good song one off Elton best songs
Hate every single thing about this song. It's just a ripoff of other far superior songs from the '50s
Ugh... throw in Bennie and The Jets as well
This was a pretty good song. I just don't like how people hate the lyrics. This world is crumbling with more shootings every day. Come on, this is actually a good song.
How can this song even be on this list? Come on, Pumped Up Kicks is an amazing song!
Who the hell makes songs about a school shooting?
Your kidding me right? , this is a good songV 5 Comments
This is the most pathetic joke of a list I've ever seen. A lot of the songs on here aren't even rock for starters, and whoever had the bright idea of putting stairway to heaven on here should be unusually tortured. This list is a complete joke.
Annoying the first time you hear it, mind numbing every time after. I've almost damaged my car radio trying to change the station when it came on one time.
It's very annoying but why Stairway to heaven and THE BEATLES. What kind of list is this
Just horrible. The lyrics are as lame and pretentious as the worst of Robert Plant's hippie-dippy, Tolkienesque drivel. The song itself is forgettable, unless you happened to have been inundated with it, which was inevitable for anyone who worked in a public place while it was a "hit".V 9 Comments
