Worst Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 3

41 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

42 Burn It Down - Linkin Park

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

43 Sex on Fire - Kings of Leon

What kind of an idiot would put stairway to heaven on this list? I can tell you this you will take a highway to hell...

I hate Kings of Leon. More like one hit wonder. This song isn't that bad, but the rest kind of suck.

Hopelessly over-rated dross.

44 I Used to Have a Best Friend (But Then He Gave Me an STD) - Asking Alexandria
45 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana


This isn't a bad song but it is overrated. Alice In chains- man in the box is way more powerful then smells like sprit. - Sabbath

I put this on here just to mess with people not because it is bad because it makes me laugh I do love this song also check out BEST Mexican COMEDIANS

This is ridiculous yes this song is extremely Overrated but it is not one of the worst rock songs - christangrant

46 All the Small Things - Blink-182
47 Down Another Day - Limp Bizkit
48 Judgemental C*** - Kid Cudi
49 Nookie - Limp Bizkit

I somewhat like this song - christangrant

What is a nookie?!

How? Nookie is a great song.

50 Sleeping Bag - ZZ Top
51 The Kill - Thirty Seconds to Mars

WHAT! This is like one of the greatest rock songs in my opinion!

Are you kidding me? This is one of the best rock songs of the year! - Fan_of_Good_Music

This is a great song.

Who compiles this crap, ! No mention of the awful chili peppers

52 Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da - The Beatles

The Beatles are amazing but this song is just worthless filler. Why Yoko? Why?

Why is Yoko the blame for everything The Beatles did? It's not like she was the CAUSE of some of their songs that aren't too good. It's not like Yoko came up with this entire song or something like Revolution 9 - kaitlynrad11

Not my favorite song from the Beatles... But the Beatles just don't deserve to be in any worst list

Great melody but nonsense lyrics that ruin the song:b

Happy song it's really good - SammySpore

53 Little Lion Man - Mumford & Sons

How could a Mumford and Sons song even make it onto this list? They're one of the best bands right now. PAthetc

54 Use Somebody - Kings of Leon

Who put this song on the list?

55 Famous Last Words - My Chemical Romance

Why is this on here?! My Chemical Romance Green Day and Stairway to Heaven do NOT belong on this list. Whoever made this list does not know good music!

Why is this song on the list? It's one of the most inspirational songs of the 00's.

I honestly love this song. Why is it on the list?

In my opinion their best song. - Elijah_Cook

56 Bodies - Drowning Pool

If I hear one more person use this for their youtube playthrough, I'm sticking an ax in my computer!

One of the most overused songs on the web.

Ouch! This song is so dumb and annoying!

I dare you to play this song ONE more time...

57 Hello Kitty - Avril Lavigne

The worst rock song ever! I just ought to put this on this list, otherwise I couldn't sleep at night! - Fan_of_Good_Music

This isn't even ROCK! But still, it's one of the worst songs I've ever heard

Might as well put all her albums here, she...SUCKS!

It's not even a rock song: it's edm from a former rock artist. But thatd oesn't mean it doesn't suck.

58 Forced Gender Reassignment - Cattle Decapitation

The music video didn't even make it to YouTube due to it's extreme gore and sexual violence it looks like that Cattle Decapitation had just released the most disgusting music video there ever was

This is only this high because of the music video - christangrant

Rate the song for gods sake. Not the music video.
This song is awesome.

Shut up. This song may have a gruesome music video. But they didn't say CRAP about music videos, just about the SONG itself! Sure its even violent in lyrics, but its saying no to people who are anti gay. Anti gays are terrible people.

59 Bycycle Race - Queen

I'd like to meet the idiots who voted for this song. Its slightly underrated and I'm pretty sure most people have never heard it. Listen to it and then you'll be thinking. - ImAKillerQueen

Why is this not higher? It's certainly Queen's most embarrassing song. Certainly worse than Stairway. - naFrovivuS

This is a great song from an awesome band - TheSorrow1

Nothing by Queen Belongs on this List - christangrant

60 Dani California - Red Hot Chili Peppers

No. I will not accept this. This song helped me like rock music. It was the first RHCP song I ever heard. I love this song. It helped me gain my epic taste in music (yes I can say that). It built a love for rock, everywhere. No one cares that this sounds like that one Tom Petty song, because it's good, but Dani California is epic. I love this song.

Best song on Stadium Arcadium

Seriously this is one of the BEST SONGS EVER
