21 Dance (A$$) - Big Sean Dance (A$$) - Big Sean
22 Beauty and a Beat - Justin Bieber Beauty and a Beat - Justin Bieber

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

23 #rihanna - Glasses Malone #rihanna - Glasses Malone

Basically all of my sentiments to this song apply, plus, I like how there was a hashtag in the title. Does it have anything to do with the song? NOPE! They probably just put it there so Rihanna could see it whenever she tries to find herself on Twitter. Combined with the contents of the song, that is just vile and despicable in every way. - WonkeyDude98

24 Give Me All Your Luvin' - Madonna Give Me All Your Luvin' - Madonna

This song is so bad I would L-U-V life if it didn't exist

I hate Madonna I mean, some of her songs r ok but it's just herself that I hate and this is probably her worst.

She just needs to stop singing -. - I thought her music was dead in the 80's and pretty much everyone was like 'thank God' but no. She had to make more awful music.

Madonna, your career is dead. Can you just fade away yet? - Swellow

25 We Are Young - Fun We Are Young - Fun

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?

THANK YOU! THEY CAN'T SING ANY SONG AND THE LEAD SINGERS WEIRD!

You know, when I see people trash talk songs like this, it's usually out of the fact that indie pop-rock acts are easy targets.

But no, this bowel leftover of a song deserves all the hate it's gotten. It might seem like a harmless, catchy, if a little plodding nothing of a song with an awkward tempo shift, but when you look into the lyrics...ooh boy. Nate Ruess plays the role of an abusive boyfriend spotting his ex at a bar trying to drink her way to forgetting what he did to her, but Nate actually attacks a man that's helping her, and carries her home tonight, presumably to continue his abusive tendencies.

But the chorus is the real kicker. Nate kicks up the admittedly decent multitracking to continue how "we're young, so let's set the world on fire". He sees no harm in his own actions, and then goes on to say that HE needs to be the one carried home. As if you're the one who needs a hand to hold, Christopher Maurice Brown.

If it wasn't for 2012 being such a ...more - WonkeyDude98

26 Scream & Shout - Will.I.Am 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.

I liked this, when I was 8. Good times, good times...

Oh yeah, this piece of lifeless garbage. - WonkeyDude98

27 Turn Me On - David Guetta Turn Me On - David Guetta

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.

28 What Makes You Beautiful - One Direction What Makes You Beautiful - One Direction

I thought this song was made in 2010. Anyway is song is HORRIBLE! - funnyuser

Man, One Direction is lame in music!

This not even being in my top 20 least favorites from 2012 should say a lot about the year. - WonkeyDude98

IT WAS MADE IN 2011 AND PEAKED ON BILLBOARD IN 2012.

29 Nightlife - Green Day Nightlife - Green Day
30 Hot Problems - Double Take Hot Problems - Double Take

You may not refer to this as a technical "song" due to it was two teenagers like rebbecca black, but this is the most miserable thing you will ever hear, and these girls aren't even hot.

The worst parts: the singers are female only!

One of the two singers should've been male w/ the other one being female.

But this song is criticized enough w/ extremely negative reception to get Wikipedia's attention.

As much as I hate this song, having two female singers is not bad. - Swellow

It is a horrible song! And yes she is STUCK UP! I mean that's not even music

The just sound like they are just talking in rhythm

31 Burn It Down - Linkin Park Burn It Down - Linkin Park

Yep, a Linkin Park song above a Justin Bieber song, I regret nothing. Zach808's explanation was spot on. Even as a minor Linkin Park fan, this is just this big chunk of unfocused loudness. The beat: abysmal. Every element is fuzzed out to the point where I can't even tell what instruments they are using. I've never been a fan of Chester's voice, and it's never been more apparent than here, where his rough yet incredibly shrill quality shines through his insufferable screaming. Mike's rap verse on the bridge is mediocre at best, and absolute filler at worst. The lyrics are really vague and not really about anything.

Why is this on top of the best of 2012 list again? A lot of people thought I'd like this because this is one of LP's poppiest songs, but honestly, they should stick to more focused and concentrated writing and more inspired instrumentation. - WonkeyDude98

This was one of few good songs if the year, why the hell is this here?

32 Bandz a Make Her Dance - Juicy J Bandz a Make Her Dance - Juicy J

3 Reasons.
1. Terrible production
2. Incorrect slang for the song and worst lyrics.
3. Lil Wayne and 2CHAINZ are not had the best rappers since 2012

That song title is not even an English and the force of a terrible rhymes to come

This is the debut of Mike WiLL Made-It and the breakthrough of Juicy J. Need I say more? - WonkeyDude98

This whole song doesn't make no damn sense - MeaganSaysHI

33 Birthday Song - 2 Chainz Birthday Song - 2 Chainz

This song was made only for the money.

34 Roman Holiday - Nicki Minaj Roman Holiday - Nicki Minaj

The lyrics sound like they were written by a 6 year old. Random lines added in the middle of a smooth rap verse. VROOM, VROOM, UNDERWEAR!

Embarrassing to the hip hop industry.

35 Home - Phillip Phillips Home - Phillip Phillips

So overplayed. His voice is really nothing special, the music sounds like he's trying to imitate Mumford & Sons and it's repetitive as all get out with barely any lyrics.

Ahh! This song aggravates me so much. Yeah, it was good when it came out and everything, but now it is just overplayed, and the structure of the song isn't even right. Seriously, the other girl should have won American Idol.

I liked it, believe me I did, but it was over played and I then hated it. - 906389

36 Shut Up and Kiss Me - Reece Mastin

The Marianas Trench song, while it's the worst song on Astoria, is better. - WonkeyDude98

37 Bom Bom - Sam and the Womp Bom Bom - Sam and the Womp

No musicality in this at all. Her voice sounds rather irritating. There was not much effort in the vocals.

But... I like this song :/

38 The Motto - Drake The Motto - Drake V 1 Comment
39 One Thing - One Direction One Thing - One Direction

They just can't sing.

They are absolutely HORRIBLE the only reason their songs get famous is because of their obnoxious fangirls...

It's just fake! And so repetitive. Basically one of the many reasons why I hate one direction

They should not be popular at all. Thumbs down.

40 Bangarang - Skrillex Bangarang - Skrillex

Success kinda spoiled this song.

Hearing this song makes me want to give Skrillex a buzz cut and shut him down.

This song is very annoying. I hate it. Skrillex is the most terrible DJ ever.
