The Top Ten

1 Stupid Hoe - Nicki Minaj Stupid Hoe - Nicki Minaj Cover Art

Nicki Minaj is the real "stupid hoe" for writing and singing this song. Seriously it sucks!

Nicki doesn't sing, she raps (terrible at that). You shouldn't argue when you don't know facts yourself (and considering that you're her fan, you SHOULD know).

What happens when you mix a terrible beat made up of sound effects with the voice that can only be described as the most awful thing ever? Add in some flashy images of a synthetic ass with some of the DUMBEST, most AWFUL (and RIDICULOUSLY ironic) lyrics ever, and you have stupid hoe. Congratulations Nicki Minaj! You are officially worse than BrokenCYDE, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, and Paris ' Hilton. I hope your success completely backfires!

There is absolutely nothing good about this song. Nicki Minaj's voice is this annoying helium-filled mess that makes your ears bleed, and the lyrics make no sense. This is supposed to be a diss towards Lil Kim, but no one would be able to tell without knowing that it's a diss song. At least "Boyfriend" had a catchy chorus, whereas this song is just "You a stupid hoe, you a you a stupid hoe" repeated over and over again. And don't even get me started on the awful, whooping beat.

Wow the irony of this song is unreal. I mean what on earth was she honestly thinking she created this.

2 Boyfriend - Justin Bieber

Auto-tuned to death, and an attempt of rap...

Background music so annoying

It's pathetic how just because something was written by Justin Bieber it gets ton of hate. I've seen 40 year olds bash on this kid. It's annoying just shut up, you're bringing him more attention by bashing him.

Worst song EVER! Justin... Just stop trying...

3 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen Cover Art

This is all I hear on the radio. Shouldn't they give all of the songs a chance to be put on the radio? This is all I hear though, at least put on a decent song- seriously

She needs to go back to Canada & stay there this song is very poorly written & her voice is mediocre this song isn't special & neither is she. This was one of the worst music experiences I had next to Rebecca Black's Friday.

Every time I turn the radio on I hear this song! All the stations play is Kelly Clarkson and this song! Its not even that good!

Can't stand this trash song. Sounds like it was written by some bubbly middle schooler. Honest to god...how can anyone like this insult to music? Her voice is incredibly annoying, and if you want me to be nice, her voice is mediocre. The music, lyrics, video? Annoying as hell, and my ears had to suffer cause this is all they would play on every station. - dragonfly99

4 Gangnam Style - Psy Gangnam Style - Psy Cover Art

I can't stand this song. People love it but they have no idea what he's even saying.

Gosh this is a stupid trend that everyone everywhere likes to talk about, and it is 4 minute pointless video and repetitive song, most of the people who "like" it don't like it, they force themselves to like it so they could fit in with other idiots.

This could have been a big chance for Kpop, but people aren't taking it seriously. They think PSY is just some fat Chinese guy who does a funny horse dance. BIGBANG and Super Junior should have gotten popular, not this.

I got to admit, Stupid Hoe and I endorse these strippers are real stupid. ( Thanks to who ever added them to the list.) But, I have to say the most stupid song on the list is... this. I mean, A. I am AMERICAN and only speak a little Korean since I do Taekwondo, but I don't know enough to translate the song.B. When I DID find the English lyrics, they were so annoying I didn't get past the first verse. C. Do you have to know anything else? Basically, PSY is a annoying singer who thinks he can sing but can't. I at least can stand Hangover ( how did poor Snoop Dogg get stuck there? ) and Gentleman ( that's okay, the only one that is actually music, it reminds me of Justin Bieber). The fact that Boyfriend and Call Me Maybe is higher than this makes it worse. Boyfreind and call me maybe are decent.

5 Birthday Cake - Rihanna Birthday Cake - Rihanna Cover Art

I get Rhianna is attractive, and she likes to write about that. There's nothing wrong with that. BUT THIS SONG IS AWFUL!

Chris Brown would be a great voice for Pac-Man!

I like Rihanna, but I hate how this song exists.

This song is one of the ugliest sounding songs I ever heard. It seems that everybody agrees on how awful this song is, and for good reason.

6 As Long as You Love Me - Justin Bieber As Long as You Love Me - Justin Bieber Cover Art

Gawd, when I heard this awful trainwreck for the first time, I thought when he sang the word "love" in the choruses, I thought he was yawning.

Ha! He got punched several times by the stereotypical girlfriend's dad. That will teach him a lesson he should've get a long time ago.

Well we don't love you! So go away!

What the hell JB!

7 Whistle - Flo Rida

A song about blowjobs. How pleasant

This whistle is so annoying!

I am glad Whistle is on the top ten. "Can you blow my whistle, baby, whistle, baby... you just put your lips together and you come real close... here we go" I know exactly what you're talking about. The whistle refers to your you-know-what. The song even has whistling. What a load of annoyance this sexual song is. The instrumental is all nice with nice-playing guitar, but overall, I rate this somewhat bearable song a 2/5 --- one additional point because it's a sexual song by a man. Whistle, a ludicrous dirty hit song, attained number one on the charts because of the instrumental, what it is about, and that is was a summer jam. Due to its sexual nature, this song easily made 2012 history. - madoog

Worst song of 2012

8 Rack City - Tyga Rack City - Tyga Cover Art

Degrading to women and boring music. How is this abomination to the music industry not #1 on this?

It is a little bothersome to see a song that I like on a worst songs list. This is the first hip-hop song that I heard the male "ay ay ay" in the background. I think this is the song that started it and influenced other hip-hop songs to have that. A lot of other hip-hop songs followed in Rack City's footsteps with the male "ay ay ay" in the background, which got annoying. Hip-hop is still doing that. You can hear it in Trey Songz's Na Na and Azalea's Fancy, for example. This song is sitting in my mp3 player. Rack City is dark and manages to create a good vibe. It has repetitive lyrics, but that's okay; it would not be great without the repetitive lyrics. Tyga's monotone voice suits well in the song. This song may be degrading to females, but I like it. Rack City is great.

Stupid Hoe, while awful, is fascinating with how it was even allowed to happen. It's the sort of trainwreck that everyone should witness at least once due to how much of a catastrophe it is.

This song, on the other hand, is terrible in the most boringly unpleasant way possible. Tyga brings absolutely nothing to the table except horrible, repetitive lyrics in the most bored, monotone delivery possible, and the beat is what started the hip hop beat formula we know and hate today. Simple synth, basic drum machine, and people quietly yelling "Hey" in the background. 3 years later, we're still hearing the damage this song has done to the pop charts. This song somehow wrecked both hip hop and R&B for years to come.

Incredibly misogynistic and sexist song ever and Tyga has the worst flow between rap verses!

9 We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together - Taylor Swift

UGH. We've been hearing about Taylor Swift's breakups/relationships since 2007. Six years of the same exact topic makes me want to shoot myself. And the horrible lyrics, with a crappy tune? Please. Just call me when decent bands come back into play

Taylor Swift is normally a good musician and singer, she has a great vocal range and writes passionately. However, this repetive song seems to endless go NEVER EVER NEVER EVER NEVER EVER NEVER EVER NEVER EVER, well, you get the picture.

Ok we get that some boy dumped you or didn't notice you but people (that now what quality music is) are so sick of these song topics. Country was bad enough but now pop what's become of this country.

This should be higher than top 1, especially since Taylor Swift was wearing a dress! ):(

Try not to see her as an arch-rival, though. Despite how nice Taylor Swift is, she could get criticized often.

10 Starships - Nicki Minaj Starships - Nicki Minaj Cover Art

Nicki Minaj has the potential of being one of the female phenoms of year. But this song is one of the songs that are obviously not part of her "Best Work" list. She fails to deliver her style and theme of being a tough chick and manages to make the electronic dance music worse than it already is.

Duh starships were ment to fly - joshlambert

This song... Unggh, it gives me a headache just remembering this. I have never hated anything half as much as Nikki Minaj, and I was forced to listen to the pop stations playing this in heavy rotation for a month! My bad music virginity is gone...

No song has annoyed me more than Starships in 2012. It is so shamelessly awful. The hook is terrible, the breakdown sucks, and the video is just the icing on the crapcake. Every time it came on I had to groan and roll my eyes. How did this ever get popular is beyond me. I keep hearing Nicki Minaj is talented but apparently all she releases is garbage.

The Contenders

11 Trumpet Lights - Chris Brown Trumpet Lights - Chris Brown Cover Art

This needs to be in the top 10, it's just Chris Brown drowning in AutoTune over a bunch of digital farts. Just the name of the song shows how stupid and nonsense it is.

Someone left out this retarded atrocity of a song...Chris Brown is drowning in autotune and there's are so many IRRITATING NOISES IN THIS SONG. UGH. This clown's vocals are absolutely irritating and the whole song it's basically not a song, it's just a noisy mess. -5/5. Probably the worst song of the year.

I can't believe you idiots actually forgot to put this dreck of a song on the list

All you need to do is listen, bear though that painful screech at the end of the song, and you will want this to be Number 1.

12 Where Have You Been - Rihanna Where Have You Been - Rihanna Cover Art

Where I'm been, what about you, Rihanna? Have you been sleeping in the dirty toilet while reading Playboy magazine and playing with Chris Brown's dirty underwear? You need help!

Her music is so trash. Lack of good voice is obvious. She can't sing LIVE and she has like 2-3 lines in every song. Oh I forgot about Ela Ela Eh Eh Eh or Year year year. - Magnolia

In your music video, you seem more like willing to get killed by a crocodile.

Her older songs like disturb I a and umbrella are actually reasonable songs. also shut up and drive. but man is she turning into a whacko or what?

13 Beez in the Trap - Nicki Minaj

This is the worst ever. Not just 2012. Nicki is the most Untalented train wreck I have ever come across. I am embarrassed for her when it's on the radio.

This doesn't even need a reason. The song speaks for how bad it is.

Just goes to show how much of a disaster the entire Roman Reloaded album was. THREE songs from that album in the top 10 of this list, with several more appearances further down. Not since Nickelback's "All The Right Reasons" have I heard an album come out with so many terrible songs.

What does "Beez in the trap" even mean?! - HappyFlower

14 Turn On the Lights - Future Turn On the Lights - Future Cover Art

I do not like this song. Turn On The Lights / Is that supposed to be a metaphor for paying attention. Future sounds like he is just moving his lips around wildly. He sounds different in this song. This song fails. I know this is produced by Mike Will Made It. Some of his tracks sound similar. This sounds similar to Neva End. Mike Will Made It always use those deep fluid sounds along with hard tunes. That is the best way that I can describe it. - madoog

Even Kesha uses her autotune better than Future. Just listen to the wail. - Swellow

Great, just what we needed. An autotuned death wail. Seriously, people thought this guy was a good enough singer to release hit songs? And people bought it?

How does one person mess up with AUTOTUNE of all things?!

15 Drive By - Train Drive By - Train Cover Art

I've never heard such stupid lyrics, Train shows which this song (and with Hey, Soul Sister) why it's one of the lamest bands ever

Strongly disagree... Din expect this song to be here... - anandinvu00eectusu00d0

Is not a worse song

One of the worst songs of all time

16 Diamonds - Rihanna Diamonds - Rihanna Cover Art

Its too overrated...
Probably the reason is that she gets nude in every other video of her. - abhisheksrivastava

Who care if it's overrated? Just because is overrated doesn't mean it's bad, and she is not naked in this video. - DaisyandRosalina

Probably Rihanna's worst song to date. She doesn't shine bright like a diamond AT ALL in this song.

The song makes it sound like it's raining diamonds. maybe one impaled her brain and made her a complete idiot and so she would convince herself to make this retarded song. You know it's true

If I hear this piece of crap ONE more time I will kick Rihanna's ass!

17 Beauty and a Beat - Justin Bieber Beauty and a Beat - Justin Bieber Cover Art

I hate this song. Because the song has got AWFUL lyrics and Nicki Minaj has got Lucifer inside.

This song is by BOTH Justin and Nicki. It's worse than most of the songs on here. - Minecraftcrazy530

How this song sounds --- I do not like it. - madoog

All he sings are girls, girls, girls. *long groan* Get a life doucheber!

18 Nightlife - Green Day Nightlife - Green Day Cover Art

Green Day becoming sold out makes me kinda sad...meanwhile this is a wreck in everyway posiible. - AlphaQ

19 Sorry for Party Rocking - LMFAO Sorry for Party Rocking - LMFAO Cover Art

I'm sorry for myself for listening to this song

You both should've been sorry for being famous. - Hellohi

This song is TERRIBLE! Lyrics are stupid, the music is stupid, everything about this song is stupid. How people call this good music beyond me...

You better be sorry!

20 We Are Young - Fun. We Are Young - Fun. Cover Art

I think this is one of the most annoying song ever created. How everyone can like this song and this band are beyond me. Maybe for the teenage girls/hipster kids who never listen to any good music, this multitracked vocal is cool, bad lyric is deep, and repetitive single piano chord is art. And it even won a grammy, which make me lost my faith for the future of music.

By far the most overrated song in history and one of the worst songs I have ever heard. No guitar, basic percussions, unoriginal bassline, bland piano, HORRID vocals, and embarassment to Janelle Monae. Why did this win song of the year?


Gayest song EVER created

21 Scream & Shout - Will.I.Am

Worst song ever, Will.I. am is a terrible musician and everything he does is terrible! Britney Spears was terrible in this too. Worst song and Worst lyrics.

What idiot put this song on here it's cool

Britney Spears was phenomenal until William James Adams II (will.i.am) made her worse by singing this song. Will.i.am needs his ass kicked off the band Black Eyed Peas and American Idol. If not for this psycho, Britney Spears would still be a hero.

How is this song was worst!? - LapisBob

22 I Fink U Freeky - Die Antwoord I Fink U Freeky - Die Antwoord Cover Art

This song is plain awful. The beat is absolutely horrendous in almost every way possible, that squeaky voice is annoying, and the production is just bad.

I've never felt so sick listening to a beat in my life. The ear-grating vocals and obnoxious flow nearly sent me to hospital. One of the worst songs of all time. -9000/5

Die antwoord sucks and should quit at rapping, worse than anaconda 1.5/10. Besides the girl singing is probably Nicki Minaj in disguise

This song is awesome.

23 Turn Me On - David Guetta Turn Me On - David Guetta Cover Art

Get this garbage pile out of mainstream media forever. David Guetta can't write lyrics if his life depended on it, and don't get me started on Nicki Minaj's awful singing. It just repeats turn me on turn me on over and over again. The beat is annoying and the song does not deserve its popularity. heck the lyrics r so bad, a 1st grader could do better then that. This song must never be played again.

How is this not #1? David Guetta is the best DJ ever. But I can't stand this song, thanks to Nicki Minaj!

David Guetta, a complete abomination. enough said.

24 Turn Up the Music - Chris Brown Turn Up the Music - Chris Brown Cover Art

Would have voted for either Bieber or Minaj, but the horribleness of this piece is truly actually really underrated.

25 Pound the Alarm - Nicki Minaj Pound the Alarm - Nicki Minaj Cover Art

Nicki should pound her dildo stick somewhere else and get her ass kicked off on American Idol.

What is with that horrible screeching noise for?! Is it necessary?! It's just sounds like a squirrel being assaulted with a zip tie, a peacock giving birth, and a screeching howler monkey being sent through a garbage disposal. Horrible

Very annoying, and I don't understand the lyrics, too much auto tune. - funnyuser

Very annoying song. All she does is drown herself in auto tune.
