Worst Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2

21 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.

22 I Don't Want to Miss a Thing - Aerosmith
23 If You Could Only See - Tonic

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.

25 Crocodile Rock - Elton John

This song is amazing! Why is this here?

Hate every single thing about this song. It's just a ripoff of other far superior songs from the '50s

This is a good song one off Elton best songs

Ugh... throw in Bennie and The Jets as well

26 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!

27 Judgemental C*** - Kid Cudi
28 Addicted - Simple Plan
29 Addicted - Saving Abel

You know that there are better women out there that could blow it better too right? - djpenquin999

30 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

31 Sweet Child O'Mine - Guns N' Roses
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 Rockstar 101 - Rihanna

Rubbish. This song is annoying. Rihanna fails at trying to do a rock song.

Hey Rihanna I got news for you. You're not a rock star. Then your songs would have guitars drums bass and guitar solos in them. - SammySpore

I don't like rihanna shes stupid

Honestly, I don't hate this. This feels like parody. - WonkeyDude98

34 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

35 Rockstar - Nickelback

I hate this song so much...

Most OVERhated rock song of all time - christangrant

Rubbish, I dislike this song and is officially demeaning rock 'n' roll. I prefer the other tunes of the artist Nickelback.

36 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

I do love linkin park and I do like this song but I do agree that this song isn't rock music - Th3Zm0nst3r

38 Carry on Wayward Son - Kansas
39 Brandenburg Gate - Lou Reed & Metallica
40 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
