Worst Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People

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 song

22 Hey, Soul Sister - Train

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".

23 The Mortician's Daughter - Black Veil Brides

Knives and Pens was awful but this is even worse at least Knives and Pens had a core guitar riff though it sounds like a weak version of Unholy Confessions by Avenged Sevenfold but this song is even worse why? Because get this... IT'S A ACOUSTIC SONG which means the focus of the song is the awful vocals of Andy Biserak which my god the vocals here make me want to vomit they are so bad. I have no idea why people think this is good as much as I dislike Tears Don't Fall by Bullet For My Valentine that song is great when compared to this awful monstrosity. Oh and the acoutstic guitar riff is just boring, bland and forgettable so yeah this song has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. - christangrant

24 Last Salmon Man - Primus
25 If You Love Somebody Set Them Free - Sting

Are the people drunk who voted on this list... ? Sting, Led Zeppelin, and even Dani California (RHCP) which is one of their best songs... Why are pop songs even on this list? I thought it was worst rock songs...

I like this song. Some of Sting's solo stuff is pretty good. - matty925

26 I Used to Have a Best Friend (But Then He Gave Me an STD) - Asking Alexandria
27 Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na) - My Chemical Romance

My chemical romance Shouldn't be here.

No My Chemical Romance song should we on a list that has the word "worst" in it

"My Chemical Romance" makes me sick.

28 Frustration - Lou Reed & Metallica
29 My World - Guns N' Roses

This is the worst Rock song I have ever heard the only positive is the fact its only 1 minute long insted of being long and tortureous - christangrant

30 Hey There Delilah - Plain White T's

The only reason I voted for this song is to get stairway to heaven out of this list. You are welcome

I knew a guy. He was my friend. Likable, funny, all-around good guy. Then he started learning guitar. And he grew horribly conceited, selfish, and sung every waking second for the attention of women (That's why he picked up the guitar in the first place).

And this was his anthem.

I hate this song with a passion!

I like this song. The name Delilah reminds me of my childhood for some reason. - Survivor101

31 She Hates Me - Puddle of Mudd

Who the hell is this song on this list in fact why are most of these song on this list this song is awesome (sure it's not as good as some of there other songs) but it's still an awesome song none the less - donovanthorn

Stairway to Heaven? Who the hell thought it was a bright idea to put it on this list? The only reason I'm voting this is to get stairway off of this list. Sorry Puddle of Mudd.

Why are all these good songs on here damn this list is awful - Musicking

She Hates Me? More like... I Hate This Song!

32 Like a Rock - Bob Seger

I do not think Bob seger should be on this because he's never wrote a bad song, all his songs are bad ass

I've always loved this song. You people who dislike Bob Seger are jackasses! - Survivor101

33 Breaking Their Hold - Avenged Sevenfold

The worst song on STST its just short and has got god awful screams - christangrant

34 Revolution 9 - The Beatles

This isn't rock, its an avant garde piece. It may have been made by a rock SINGER, (john lennon composed it, other Beatles didn't have anything to do with it), but its not rock.

My least favorite Beatles song. Ever since I listened to this song backwards, I stopped listening to this song (Just try, there is a scary hidden message in it)

I like the Beatles and all, and I don't think this should count because it's barely a song as is.

What the heck yall talking about this a great rock song by the Beatles it's one of the best on the White Album but I like the acoustic version better it's called Revolution 1 and it's also on the White Album yall should check it out

35 Payphone - Maroon 5

It sounds like someone is hurting Adam Levine when he says "Payphone" in this song. Horrible sound. Horrible lyrics. I wonder how many seconds it took them to write this song?

Why in the living heck is Knives and Pens on this list? It is a respectable song about anti-bullying and not being offended about who you are!

And yeah, Payphone may be catchy but the lyrics are very badly thought up. :/

This isn't rock. Maroon 5 is not rock anymore. They only became all poppy because, I don't know, people love crap like this? I'm TIRED of rap bridges.

Because Maroon 5 is the worst band ever, they are killed the rock music. - 05yusuf09

I want to smash in their heads with a payphone.

36 What It's Like - Everlast

I completely agree here. This song isn't even rock yet it's played on my local rock station constantly. - BlackPikmin1998

37 American Bad Ass - Kid Rock

Worst song ever? Another one bites the dust. Great band, horrible song. Worst song song, period.

Bawithaba is way worse than this song in my opinion, because it repeats over and over and over. This one isn't entirely too bad, although the sampling of Metallica's Sad but True over rap doesn't quite work out well. - NuMetalManiak

38 Lips of an Angel - Hinder

This song is an atrocity. I still don't understand how Stairway to Heaven is ahead of this mess.

Calling this a song is too far of a draft. - Swellow

39 It's on Like Donkey Kong - Blood on the Dance Floor

Dotdf is pop - Lucretia

40 Bleed It Out - Linkin Park

What? This song is awesome!

What IS THIS, THIS SONG IS GREATT
