2 "Rain drop, drop top, smokin' on cookie in the hot box box, cookin' up dope in the crock pot pot." - Migos, Bad and Boujee

My brain cells at 1AM

Ugh stop!

This line was great stfu

It sickens me that stuff like this is becoming an acceptable use of the once-beautiful English language. - Entranced98

3 "Hannah Lee, I'm on my way to you, nobody can love you like I do, I don't know what I'm gon' say to you, but I know there ain't no way we're through." - Sam Hunt, Drinkin' Too Much

All I can say was Sam was definitely drinking too much when he recorded this. - DankGodX

What baffles me the most is that Hannah Lee is back with him after this utter atrocity of a song. - DCfnaf

The fact that this guy is even worse Tyga is beyond me - AlphaQ

He's clearly drinking too much. - AlphaQ

4 "Last night you were in my room, now my bedsheets smell like you." - Ed Sheeran, Shape of You

Gross. - CharismaticKat

Oh really, so does she wear a certain perfume... I know what this means, and it is a bad song.

Just weird... - TheFourthWorld

If she smells good that's okay, if she smells bad you need to do some laundry - RoseCandyMusic

5 "There's so many bodies on the floor, so baby we should go and add some more." - Marian Hill, Down

I love Marian Hill. They do have better songs though, and I don't like this lyric! - galaxyfox

When I first read this I thought it was about dead people - Himalayansalt

The first part reminded me of Bodies of Drowning Pool. - wrests

Yeah, die so we don't have to know what this song is, great idea...

6 "Guys my age don't know how to touch me, don't know how to love me good." - Hey Violet, Guys My Age

Me

Reminds me of a friend who's dating a man who's 29 years older than her and she's not even 18!

This is pedophilia right here. This is what real perverse looks like. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

Millennial girls in a nutshell.

7 "Lil Kodak they don't wanna see you winnin', they just wanna see you in the penitentiary." - Kodak Black, Tunnel Vision

I talked about this lyric and how Kodak Black is a disgusting person so no explanation necessary. - DCfnaf

They wanted to see me in the penitentiary? Am I crazy? - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

This is nor rap music. This is pure whining. - AlphaQ

The fact that I'm the only one on the site who has commented on Kodak Black's armed robbery arrest and rape allegations and how they align in a terrifyingly destructive way with this disturbing pseudo-racial propaganda of a song is kind of unnerving. Like, shouldn't more people be talking about this? - WonkeyDude98

8 "England is my city" - Jake Paul, It's Everyday Bro

Jake Paul has a little dog turd for a brain.

ENGLAND IS A COUNTRY IN EUROPE.
If you said that to my new social studies teacher she'd send you back to kindergarten.

According to jakes logic, then it is sensible to say that burj khalifa is my dollhouse or australia is my teddy bear

If that were the place then house is my galaxy

9 "Who can relate" - Logic, 1-800-273-8255

Not me. - CharismaticKat

How to ruin a decent song in three words - Atham

I do like the song and I find it overhated. But shouting "WHO CAN RELATE? " won't ever get the message through. If you're depressed, I don't think you'd shout that line. - Ultron123

At least we can agree, whether you like the song or not, that this lyric is just insensitive. - DCfnaf

10 "Turn it up, keep it on repeat, stumbling around like a wasted zombie." - Katy Perry, Chained to the Rhythm

Turn it up, it's your least favorite song, drink drink bleach like a wasted zombie. - DankGodX

The fact that Sia wrote this made this unbelievable...

Study playlists in a nutshell. - Entranced98

You guys do realize this song is about how people like to drown the big issues of both politics and modern society's views with overly happy, mindless and dancable music, do you?
She's not telling you to do this, she just tells what people are already doing, being sarcastic. You would know if you listened to the verses. - Martin_Canine

But the problem is that she HERSELF is the most mindless of pop stars and she's is criticizing this. - DCfnaf

The Newcomers

? “If it’s meant to be it’ll be it’ll be” - Florida Georgia Line and Bebe Rexha, Meant to Be

The Contenders

11 "It beats me black and blue but it f***s me so good." - Rihanna, Love on the Brain

God, why do people even like this song. - CharismaticKat

I have mixed feelings about this song, but god, this lyric is awful - oneshot

Typical Rihanna. I wouldn't expect anything less from her. But in fairness, you know, credit where it's due; Rihanna and her strange ways and lyrics have contributed greatly to everything that's wrong with the world today. She must be so proud. - Britgirl

Rihanna was always bad.

12 "I'm the ****, I'm farting, I don't know how to potty" - A Boogie with the Hoodie feat. Kodak Black, Drowning

I actually like the song, but this lyric and Kodak Black's verses are dumb. - CharismaticKat

Who wrote this lyric? A 5 year old?

Sad part is this is actually a good, maybe great song. Except for this lyric and the rest of Kodak Black here

I'm laughing and cringing at the same time - SpectralOwl

13 "I want you forever, even when we're not together, scars on my body so I can take you wherever." - Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello, Bad Things

Abusive relationships... - CharismaticKat

Relatable

Destructive relationship much?

14 "He give me that good s*** that makes me not quit." - Ariana Grande, Everyday

This song made my midyear worst songs of 2017 list. In amongst the many questionable lyrics, this is one of them - crowdiegal

So he gives you good poo? That's a gross lyric...

Give her good bleach then - EliHbk

Did she just swear? Please! Lady Gaga makes better music than that pottymouth! - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

15 "I get stupid on a n***a like I'm autistic." - Kodak Black, Up in Here

That's not nice, Kodak. - CharismaticKat

This is really offensive and innacurate.

As a autistic person, I don't find this offensive.Still a bad song. - oneshot

Yet another dumbass thinks autistic is a synonym for stupid. When will people ever learn to use Google? - Zach808

16 "You look so proud standing there with a frown and a cigarette, posting pictures of yourself on the internet." - The Chainsmokers, Paris

What's so bad about this? When you consider the feel and overall story the song is telling, it makes perfect sense. - ProPanda

I don't understand what's wrong with this lyric. It's perfectly good song lyrics, and it fits with the song, and it's just a lyrics that the amazing band The Chainsmokers would probably say

Um... how do you look proud with a frown

Screw The Chainsmokers

17 "Girl that you f***ed with killed herself That was this summer and nobody helped And ever since then, man, I hate myself Wanna f***in' end it, pessimistic All wanna see me with no pot to piss in But n***as been excited 'bout the grave I'm diggin'." - XXXT

These are some of the worst lyrics. What kind of song is this?

Shut Up XXXTentacles You Hypocrite Douchebag. Faking Your Sorrowness And Being Mean To Your Own Friend's Suicide. Disgusting. - AlphaQ

18 "Know you n****s thought I was gone, know you n****s thought I wasn't comin' home, But guess what, b***h I'm home" - Kodak Black, First Day Out

And Kodak you shouldn't be. - DankGodX

I saw like 500000000 no words in there

19 "I'm F***ed Up; I'm Faded; I'm So Complicated." - The Chainsmokers, Bloodstream

This band... is famous for atrocius lyrics

Sounds like something you'd hear in an early 2000s angsty rock song. - Swellow

20 "Killing Darth Vader with my motherf***ing kickdrum" - MISSIO, KDV

Killing Missio with mah frigging lightsaber. - CharismaticKat

"Than using Green Giant guitar flames to make its foot explode more" - xandermartin98

You made a song about killing a fictional villain using a drum? What is logic? - DankGodX

Do I even need to explain this one? - DankGodX

21 "Quavo you should take your mask off" - Jake Paul, Jerika

Since when did Quavo ever start wearing a mask. - CharismaticKat

Sometimes I wonder if Jake Paul actually does the research when he writes his lyrics, because he always seems to garble what's what. Didn't Future make Mask Off? If this is intentional, then it's probably an attempt to stay relevant on his behalf by bashing more popular figures. - Swellow

At least with "England is my city", that song almost made sense, if he had been from the Arkansas city instead of the European country. This made no sense from the very beginning. Mask Off is a song made by Future and I don't recall Quavo being involved in any part of the song. - SelfDestruct

Mask Off is by Future. Jake Paul shouldn't even be famous. - AlphaQ

22 "If Ed Sheeran writes my song, I'll finally top the charts" - AJR, Three-Thirty

Do it! - oneshot

Ed Sheeran doesn't want to write your songs!

And that's 2hy he won't wrote yor songs. - DankGodX

23 "Wondering if I just dodged a bullet or lost the love of my life." - Zayn and Taylor Swift, I Don't Wanna Live Forever

This is actually a great lyric from an otherwise watered down and drab song - Ub8

24 "I get up late, I stub my toe, I've got a few missed calls / I lost my job, I didn't know, and that's not good at all" - Bibi H., How It Is (Wap Bap)

Nobody cares

Generally, the hate for this song goes way too far right now in Germany, if it wasn't the music debut of a succesful YouTuber, people would simply dislike it, not hate it. But still, it's not a good song (2 out of 5 stars on my scale) and this lyric in particular is just stupid. You would know if you lost your job. I mean, Bibi instantly became a famous YouTuber while still studying, and probably doesn't know much about jobs, then again, I'm studying too and didn't work and know that. Also Bibi didn't write the song, it was a non-famous personal friend of her. Also this stupid "and that's not good at all". I know it's only there to have a rhyme, but still, that sounds as if the writer thought her fans were too stupid to know that losing your job is a bad thing. - Martin_Canine

25 "They should bleed once a month 'cause that's what these b**ches do." - Yo Gotti, Rake It Up

Oh wow. - CharismaticKat

Bru that's wrong on so many levels. - AlphaQ

26 "Hate your loser lyrics, middle fingers in the air" - MISSIO, Middle Fingers

Hate His Loser Lyrics - AlphaQ

I hate his loser lyrics

What a tryhard. - PandaDude98

27 "A tiger don't lose no sleep, don't need opinions from a shellfish or a sheep." - Katy Perry, Swish Swish

This is like getting punched by a baby. - DCfnaf

28 "If You Were a Dude, I Think I'd Die." - Jake Paul, Jerika

What

So die, she looks like a man. - DankGodX

So die, she doesn't have to be a dude.

29 "It's everyday bro with the Disney Channel flow" - Jake Paul, It's Everyday Bro

No one likes that crap Disney. - AlphaQ

I'm sorry, lyric is no longer valid. Would you like to throw it away?

I'm Quentin Tarantino and you are watching Disney Channel - 445956

Sorry Jake Paul a lot of people don't know your disney show so a lot of people can't see your disney flow - RoseCandyMusic

30 "My new b--ch yellow, she bl-w that d--k like a cello" ~ Lil Yachty on Peek A Boo

Please pass the bleach - Camaro6

Look Lil Boat, This line doesn't even make sense. A cello is a string instrument that looks like a huge viola, sure you can blow on it but the viola won't like your atrocious breath and untune itself. - DankGodX

How do you blow a cello when you can't even blow a kazoo?

I'm dying of laughter

31 "Who am I to tell me who I am?" - AJR, Netflix Trip

One of the worst lyrics on the whole album. It's a self-perpetuated loop of cowardice and laziness. - WonkeyDude98

32 "And when your stitch comes loose I wanna sleep on every piece of fuzz And stuffing that comes out of you, you" - Fall Out Boy, HOLD ME TIGHT OR DON'T

This song is great, but this lyric is just strange. - Catacorn

OK, what makes this so atrocious and cringeworthy is that, musically, this is a feel-good song. So why are you implying you want to sleep on your girlfriend's internal body parts? And if not that, then why are you comparing your girlfriend to a stuffed animal? This ranges between the most childish and most grotesque lyric I've heard all 2017! - AlexZedKawa

If he's talking about (Um Jammer) Lammy, then I definitely agree - xandermartin98

I love the song, but that’s just weird.

33 "Got me spread like a buffet, Bon appétit, baby, Appetite for seduction, Fresh out the oven, Melt in your mouth kind of lovin', Bon appétit, baby." - Katy Perry, Bon Appétit

Ahh, Katy Perry. Your lyrics are so full of ridiculous innuendo. - Swellow

Nice methaphors, freak.

34 "She's so proper, a head-knocker what it do, after school" - Jacob Sartious, Bingo

Speaks for itself.

Jacob no one gonna give you head. - DankGodX

So Jacob I guess is telling this girl to give him a head

This is so damn disturbing... - DCfnaf

35 "I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now...why? Oh, cause she's DEAD." - Taylor Swift, Look What You Made Me Do

Okay, this is a painful unnecessary jab at her fans of her older music. Leave your fans out of this and go back to thinking about who you'll date next.

I don't care if the song is satire or not, this lyric can go screw itself either way. - DCfnaf

Also I read that it will leave fans raging at their computer screen. I'm pretty worried too. - MissRWBY202

36 "What's the day without a little night?" - Logic, 1-800-273,8255
37 "Girl I Love It When Your Body (Grinds on Me)." - Liam Payne, Strip that Down

This should be higher! To think that seven year olds are singing this!

What a pervert lmao - DCfnaf

U perv lol - AlphaQ

38 "Got me spread like a buffet, Bon appétit, baby" - Katy Perry, Bon Appetit

Just stop! Who can not tell what this really means?

39 "Rich people learn their lesson to never donate without the press there" - AJR, Three-Thirty

I feel like I could just put any lyric off their dumb-as-mud album here, but this one stands out. Think about it this way: what has AJR ever donated to without huge buzz?

Thought not, you privileged manchildren scum. - PandaDude98

40 "You're the type that I can bake for, cuz baby you know how to take that cake" - Fifth Harmony, Down
41 Man's Not Hot - Big Shaq

Big Shaq is a disgrace to Grime. - oneshot

That lyric totally describes Big Shaq. - CharismaticKat

42 "Yeah I smell good; Is that your boy's cologne?" - Jake Paul, It's Everyday Bro

I'm not sure bragging about how you smell is genius at all.

Um, I don't like the smell of its every day bro

43 "How can I be mad, b**** I sleep in a mansion" - RiceGum, Frick Da Police

Awful

Godammit rice, you ruined your rapping career with this terrible song! - Not_A_Weeaboo

44 "Gucci Gang" - Lil Pump, Gucci Gang

He says this 53 times. - Not_A_Weeaboo

45 "We were staying in Paris to get away from your parents." - The Chainsmokers, Paris

You rhymed "Paris" with "parents". Congratulations, you reached level 1 of basic rhyming!

Hey! I love these song lyrics! Drew sings this line amazingly

Eh it's alright... - DankGodX

This is a great lyric - ProPanda

I agree. There is nothing wrong with these amazing song lyrics. Also, I love this song.
