Worst Songs of 2011

The Top Ten

1 Friday - Rebecca Black

Seriously? I think Rebecca Black needs to choose a new career path, like... Being a clown, or a dancer? Definitely not a singer! Her song sounds like something from Hannah Montana!

Awful just awful this is obviously the worst song of 2011 possibly even of all time. The autotuned voice, the awful music video, it all comes together to make the worst attempt at singing I have ever heard.

At a ratio of 1:11 YouTube likes to dislikes... Why the living hell is this little weirdo making money?

AAA! My ears! This song REALLY made them bleed. It's easily the worst song EVER! Glad it's #1!

2 Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO

Ugh, I have countless problems with this dribble.

My first issue is possibly the biggest: the beat. It's too melodic to be rap, but too rhythmic to be anything else. If it were Eminem who could rap over anything it would be fine, but LMFAO can barely rap over an actual rap beat. Additionally, the beat is extremely repetitive, being the same dun-dun-dun-dun-DUN over and over and the only thing that changes is it starts to crescendo, making it even more obnoxious.

My second issue is the lyrics. The lyrics are basically "I'm telling you something I already know" and some other nonsense. Don't tell us it then.

My third issue is that LMFAO don't seem to be trying. At least with, say, Nicki Minaj, she's usually being interestingly bad. S&IKI, on the other hand, makes it seem like LMFAO was bored and they are trying to make us feel the boredom.

Oh yeah, the awful video.

Overall, a 0/5. It didn't get the -1/5 score because there is nothing to discuss that is ...more - WonkeyDude98

LMFAO... I wouldn't even count this as music, they can't sing, no drums, no bass, no gutair. I'm 13 and I would love to go back to the 80's were good music egsisted...

I hate this 'band' If you would call it that.

This song is like it came out of a giant's butt when he farted. That is how bad it is. The instrumental is annoying, and the lyrics are repetitively annoying. This is not good music. - madoog

When I Watched this, it did not go as expected for me plus the parody jedi and I know it was way better than this, and is this even appropriate for youtube?

3 Never Say Never - Justin Bieber

Never say Never? Hey Bieber, watch this. I never want to hear your music ever. I never want to see a trending topic with your name in it. I'm sick of everything about you. - alexschubert

I will always say never...
when someone asks me to listen to Justin Bieber

No 2?! This should be number 1! In fact this should be rated one of the worst songs in history along with all of his other songs like that 'Baby' or some other useless junk. Ugh, I'm sick of this guy!

This song sounds annoying; the vocals are too much. - madoog

4 Gucci Gucci - Kreayshawn

One of the worst ever

This song is poor. What is up with her voice? This song sounds stupid. - madoog

I didn't expect Kreayshawn to be up here this high. Huh. - ProPanda

#1 there's a line where she mentions selling atterals and #2 she sounds like a squirrel with a head cold

5 Look at Me Now - Chris Brown

Chris Brown's verse on this song has to be one of the worst rap verses of all time. It's so bad that you can hear him giving up with an "I'm done" after rhyming "dick" with "dick", and with "dick", and even with "dick". Eminem's got nothing on this guy's rhyming skills laugh out loud.

Chris Brown, just go away. No one needs to hear you rap about your dick.

If I look at you I might go blind.

If It Wasn't For Chris Brown, This Would've Been a 4.5/5. - AlphaQ

6 Run the World (Girls) - Beyonce

I thought Beyonce could not make anything worse than Single Ladies or Diva, but I was wrong. Throughout the song, Beyonce keeps yelling sexist lyrics over this dumb march beat. This song doesn't empower women. It just makes feminists look stupid.

definitely one of the worst songs ever. Wait a minute, I said "songs"? I cannot even call it "song". This is real laughing-stock - Magnolia

This song is somewhat unpleasant but bearable. It attempts to be an anthem for females in a bad way, while containing a sample of another song and percussion. I do not hate this song. I dislike it. It is not worth listening to. - madoog

Beyonce is a great rapper, but I can't stand this song!

7 Swagger Jagger - Cher Lloyd

Out of all the music the U.K. gave us, Cher Lloyd gave us the absolute worst. Her lyrics are awful, her voice is herendus, plus the music is annoying. Just the worst of 2011

I can't believe this chick's from the same country the Beatles are from!

This song is a complete failure and annoying. - madoog

This song is agressively obmoxious. Everything about it is just so annoying

8 My Jeans - Jenna Rose

Wait... is this a even music? This is terrible! Even Friday by Rebecca Black is better. - thetoptens21

Jenna Rose is so selfish and her lyrics are terrible. She deserves to get spin kicked in the face by chuck norris.

"Friday" didn't really do anything beyond being really stupid. There is something deeply wrong with this song, though. Basically, this song is the absolute worst example of a spoiled, bratty teenage girl who judges everyone based on their clothes.

This song is poor. She acts vain, like saying she is better in terms of fashion, comparing herself to other females. They're gonna go ahead and add rap verses, which do not help the song. I never heard anything like this, before. What a random song out of the music industry. - madoog

9 Surrounded by Silence - Design the Skyline

Wow. People or so into Rebecca Black that they haven't seen the ACTUAL worst song of 2011, as of yet.

Surrounded by Silence is more like being surrounded by the eerie, ear bleeding sound effects of this song. At least Rebecca Black redeemed herself overtime, but THIS? This is what you could consider terrible. The lyrics are terrible and so loud and fast that even by metal standards, this is stupid. However, the worst thing about the song is the sudden change in the song's tone. It changes so rapidly it hits you straight in the ear. The pacing is messed up. The music video itself is a pain to watch.

Oh, and to summarize the whole thing, even the band themselves said it sucked. What a coincidence :P...

Wow, this used to be my comment. Still terrible, but somehow, I enjoy listening to it, just to get a good laugh and crack a joke out the atrocious musical direction, vocals and terrible cinematography... - CrimsonShark

10 Dance (Ass) - Big Sean

I forgot about this one. I saw 'Look at Me Now' so I voted for that, but if I'd seen this before I voted, I might have voted for this instead. Seriously, one of the worst songs ever made. I know Big Sean has had his ups and downs, but this takes the cake for his worst song. Disgusting, annoying, and it doesn't even sound like music. Horrible!

Apparently all you need to do to get a hit song now is repeat the word "Ass" over and over again.

His lyrics are repetitive and he thinks he got money to have sex with lots of women.

Wow. This is new levels of stupidity

The Contenders

11 Tonight (I'm F**kin' You) - Enrique Inglesias

It's rare for a song to be this bad. I'd prefer David Guetta and Akon's sorry excuse for a song they made last year because they at least TRIED to COMPLIMENT the girl! I'd even prefer Akon's "I Wanna F You" over this because at least it was a REQUEST and not just being a creep! - WonkeyDude98

12 Radicals - Tyler, the Creator

It's really sad to see a drugged Tyler being full-on stupid and makings a song like this. Disgusting. Nothing is worse than this.
-iNFiNiTY/5 - AlphaQ

13 What Makes You Beautiful - One Direction

Adele Above This? , Please, How Is This Considered Flipping Better Than Someone Like You? - VideoGamefan5

Ok, Why wasn't this even on the list? - VideoGamefan5

Why Is This Below Adele? , THIS SONG IS ATROCIOUS! - VideoGamefan5

ONLY 32? , I'm DONE WITH HUMANITY - VideoGamefan5

14 Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO

One Of Those Songs That Are Overplayed And Terrible - VideoGamefan5

I do not like this. No. - madoog

15 Love You Like a Love Song - Selena Gomez & The Scene

Sheesh. What does it mean to love like a love song anyway? Making idealistic, empty promises that aren't likely to be fulfilled (Bruno Mars' "Just The Way You Are")? Rough love ("Poker Face", "S&M" come to mind)? Mediocre romancing ("Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad")? Awkward games and uncomfortable metaphors (Mariah Carey's "Touch My Body")? It's a horribly weird metaphor.

Repetitive choruses aren't necessarily bad, but this one is hard on the ears. The instrumental is grating, and the song features one of the worst sound effects I've heard on the radio: Re-p-p-p-p-p-peat? No thanks.

This song is great, I just can't believe there are so many rude people on the Internet.

How can it be a bad song. No taste in music!

#15...TheTopTens ended. - ProPanda

16 The Time (Dirty Bit) - The Black Eyed Peas

I do not like this song. - madoog

17 The A Team - Ed Sheeran

What's wrong with this song? It's actually really nice...

This actually a really great song... it shouldn't be here :(

Take this off the list! It's beautiful!

Boring song from an overrated artist. Nothing more to say really. - Mrveteran

18 6 Foot 7 Foot - Lil Wayne

NO NO NO WHY WEEZY Why do songs like this?

This song is terrible! The lyrics are crap and the music is bad

19 O.M.G. - Jenna Rose
20 Jam (Turn It Up) - Kim Kardashian

She's so stiff, she sounds so uninterested, and her voice is terrible

Just because your a reality star famous for nothing doesn't mean you can sing!

I like this song. - madoog

She’s terrible at everything she does. - railfan99
