Worst Songs of 2013

Magnolia

The Top Ten

1 We Can't Stop - Miley Cyrus

This song is tasteless and Miley has no talent. She is only famous because of all of the crazy controversial stuff she does for attention. I guess she is so desperate to be famous that she prefers negative attention to no attention at all. Sad, really.

I also hate the line, "Only God can judge us." I mean, that is true, but she's using it as an excuse to do all the bad stuff she wants.

And stop twerking. Please. Just stop. - TheKatieLady

The Bible tells us to judge with righteous measure, so we cannot judge unfairly or unrighteously. God is our ultimate judge though.

This song makes my ears bleed. Her voice is so nasally and auto-tuned!

I just accidentally voted for this, hm. It's certainly not the greatest by any means, but I also wouldn't call it the worst. I've heard far worse and to be honest, it's catchy.

Everyone seems to take guilty pleasures too seriously and denounce them for being either popular or, well, popular. It's currently popular to hate Miley Cyrus for being "provocative" and what not, but I've heard far worse. Miley's talented and I think "We Can't Stop" is an admirable top 40 hit. - kendyl

Agree, her voice is annoying. Her performance in her concert... no, just no.

2 Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke

This song annoys me! What a joke! An insult to music! Disgusting. I used to like Pharrel but now? And this song makes me hate Robin Thicke. Worst lyrics in history, honestly, who the hello wrote this? Probably the same person who wrote Friday for Rebecca Black. This song is so disrespectful to women. Ugh, the lyrics are so gross! Whats worse is that stupid tune gets stuck in your head, ugh. - dragonfly99

Every time I hear it I feel physically enraged, I just want to break something, the lyrics make no sense and Robin Thicke can't sing at all

This song makes me wanna kill myself no matter what the time day or situation setting is

WORST SONG I HAVE EVER HEARD IN MY LIFE! KILL ME NOW!

3 23 - Mike Will Made-It

Miley Cyrus is in this song, and has a rap verse. Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J, (real) rappers that I detest just as much, also feature in this atrocity. AUTOMATIC FAILURE! This is, without question, an obscenely terrible piece of music (in reality, a bag of rotting garbage). THIS (SONG) SHOULD NOT EXIST!

This is a song? I thought it was a Air Jordan commercial gone terribly wrong, EPIC FAIL!

Miley Cyrus rapping. Shoot, me, now!

Good god, this is an abomination. "We Can't Stop" is like "Set Fire to the Rain" compared to this. - DCfnaf

4 Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus

Horrible song and stupid lyrics... - sam117

The song is terrible, her voice is annoying and the music video is disturbing and shouldn't have even been allowed on YouTube. This should be at number 1.

This is just so horrible! I don't want to listen to this song or watch the music video.

Gross - PeeledBanana

5 Love Me - Lil Wayne

Let's see...

A dreary, lifeless beat that Mike Will Made It produced? Check.
Rappers that don't sound enthused at all about what they're rapping about? Check.
A chorus so bad that it somehow makes most Death Metal singers sound good? Check.
And some of the most sexist lyrics I've ever heard in a rap song? Definitely a check.

Why would anyone ever buy this?

Its sexist and disrespectful to women. Its not even a good song - LegitGames12

Any lil Wayne song is horrible. this one is no different

Nobody wants to hear about your sex dungeon, Lil Wayne

6 Best Song Ever - One Direction

They stole the melody from Baba O'Riley by The Who. And not only that, they also ripped off songs such as from The Clash, Grease etc. And who are they going to rip off next? Westlife? The Wanted? They need to try to stop ripping off other songs and come up with their own melodies. Utter plagiarists. :(

One Direction didn't steal anything. I'm not huge fans of them but I'm just saying. The producers are Julian Bunetta, Matt Rad and John Ryan whom are the so-called "stealers" - sryanbruen

More like the crappiest song ever

One Direction has no musical talent what so ever and they should just go away.

Such an ironic title...

7 U.O.E.N.O. - Rocko

Basically, you have Rick Ross, trying to act like a pervert with his horrific lyrics. Rocko wastes his talent, and Future is plain trash. - Swellow

This song is what you get when you have a bunch of people in the studio who just don't care what they're putting out.

This song is literally about people not wanting to know something, but they take it to heart so badly (fun fact - every lyric in this song has "you don't even know it" at the end) it only gets worse. And then we have the infamous S&M joke in it... - Swellow

This song sounds good. - madoog

8 Karate Chop - Future

Yeah. When Future is the better rapper on a song, you know that the song is abysmal. He was in all of 2013's worst moments, working with Rocko and Lil Wayne to tear the year down.

Instead, a rapper I usually don't mind, Lil Wayne, brought it down to near unspeakable lyrics. Where U.O.E.N.O. was more consistently bad until Rick Ross, Karate Chop was more of one violently bad moment.

But it might have possibly been the worst moment in history, as Lil Wayne metaphorically uses Emmett Till in a way not even Insane Clown Posse would because it was so bad. - WonkeyDude98

Even without the terrible Emmett Till lyric, this song could not even be saved by 2Pac or Notorious B.I.G., not even Eazy-E for that matter. An abysmal beat put atop the watery vocals make the song feel like a boring and failed club song. - Swellow

For once I can't even blame Future for sinking yet another song. This time it's Lil Wayne's fault for letting loose the single worst rap lyric of all time.

"Beat that ***** up like Emmett Till".

This song makes me wanna puke and bleach my whole face. This is the WORST song of the WORST album. It's even worse than My X and this is basically one of the worst ways a man can be tortured. -10K/5 - AlphaQ

9 Started From the Bottom - Drake

Re-title the song to "First World Problems."

"I guess 'Started From the Middle Caught a Few Lucky Breaks Along the Way and Now I'm Here' just doesn't have much flow to it though." - ADoseofBuckley

The biggest reason people put this song in the list is because they think Drake lied. However, I get Drake was trying to convey the message of his progress from the bottom of the rap game and how he became famous. However, the sad part is he fails to clarify it! Therefore, the message is not conveyed properly. This clarification failure puts this song on the list for me. - SelfDestruct

More like Started From The Middle. This would've been a better Eminem song because it would have made more sense.

10 Harlem Shake - Baauer

I can't think of any other song on this list that's so devoid of anything good. "Best Song Ever" was pretty much stolen from another song, but it still sounds okay. "Blurred Lines" is actually pretty good if you don't listen to the lyrics. Even the god-awful "We Can't Stop" had a tune. But this? This is just noise. Not catchy enough to dance to, no pleasant (or really any) tune, and no redeeming lyrics. The only thing I can say in this song's defense is that it doesn't hit complete rock-bottom like "Stupid Hoe" did last year.

So annoying everyone playing it and dancing shut up!

Stop please I can not take this song anymore

I actually like this song, it's a good tune to turn up to - kardinaleb

The Contenders

11 Chinese Food - Alison Gold

I couldn't even Watch the entire music video. It's that bad. And someone should put that Tae Allan song Mass Text on this list. That song also sucks.

I thought the meaning was something deeper but it's just about food and also I don't like the creativity of the lyrics

Good God... Worst ever!

The saddest thing about this is that it was actually a Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. - NiktheWiz

12 Roar - Katy Perry

This song is so overplayed and annoying. Radioactive and Just Give Me a Reason shouldn't be on here!

Just Give Me a Reason is as bad as this if you hate this, but I like both - venomouskillingmachine

I'm not a huge KP fan, but I usually don't mind her too much. But I thought that "Roar" was really beneath her. As she sing/talks her way through one lame, tired cliché after another, I just want to find a way to make it stop! Who let this become a fully realized song, played on the radio and everything. Once you reach this level of fame, don't you pay people to stop you from making such dire mistakes? And the video! She fashions a spear in order to hunt down... A banana? This isn't even "awesomely bad", it's just bad!

I was in a dance class (Which I left because of bad teaching and mean girls) and we practiced this song. Every day, I had to hear it about 45 times. It was SO annoying! The girls there were older than me, they should understand what good music is and get off their phones and remove the wallpaper of their butt (One girl actually had that as her wallpaper). I mean, this sing is so bad! WHAT HAPPENED TO PEOPLE LIKING FLEETWOOD MAC!?!? - maddyparrot22

I hate this song with all my life.

13 Bubble Butt - Major Lazer

Terrible song like really bubble butt but that makes me laugh

For those of you who don't get it, it was Bruno Mars who kept saying "bubble butt" over and over again in the song.

Guess who said bubble butt bubble bubble bubble butt. (hint: he catches grenades for girls and tells them they're amazing just the way they are) you shocked?

For those of you who don't get it, it was Bruno Mars who kept saying "bubble butt" over and over in the song.

It's a song about butts made for people to take seriously... What else do I have to say

This song is not that bad. - madoog

14 The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) - Ylvis

This isn't a serious song. It's a joke. Ylvis themselves said that the song wasn't supposed to be taken serious. It was just for laughs.

How is this considered music? The song is overall horrible, stupid and atrocious. The lyrics are horrible, but that damn chorus... is annoying as hell... This song should be number 1 DEFINITELY, in fact I'm actually ASTONISHED that this piece of garbage isn't number 1. At least We Can't Stop isn't annoying as hell and at least the song (in my opinion) is decent as it is. This song should not have been created and the world would be MUCH MUCH happier and better without this damn, god-awful atrocity. I don't know what Ylvis was on when this was made. Maybe drunk, perhaps?

This song is horrible. It makes no sense. How can this be called a song?

It's just a funny song - PeeledBanana

15 Gentleman - Psy

He famous just because of the stupid gangnam style and stupid ass dance

Shockingly bad remake on the crappy gangnam style

PSY thinks this song is gonna get even more hype than gangnam style but NOPE!

Straight up bad Gangnam Style. - WonkeyDude98

16 #thatPOWER - will.i.am

I'm with another user that it was will's inability to perfect a beat like he did in Dirty Bit (and he copied the beat from it and still couldn't) that sank the song. Bieber is saving it from being one of the worst songs of all time. - WonkeyDude98

Terrible song of will.I. am. This song has awful lyrics and I've heard Justin Bieber worse. Worst song. Worst lyrics. you SUCK Bieber!

The drop has two notes. TWO NOTES. People get annoyed of four-chord pop songs and only hate Bieber's part of the song when his part actually had buildup. The drop is TWO NOTES. It's just so awkward and bland. Leave drops to Major Lazer dude. - WonkeyDude98

My class this year put this song on every day. While the other kids were dancing. While I was reading a book, Bieber!

17 Cruise - Florida Georgia Line

This is not country, that's for sure.

It really makes you not want to cruse

Nah, it's a pretty good song. The remix is good too. - Catacorn

The "Baby you're a song" lyric is so cringeworthy it makes me wanna turn off the radio. - LoveMusicLoveLife

18 Gas Pedal - Sage the Gemini

This song is a complete and utter failure. The rappers sound bored and clearly don't give a about their lyrics or delivery. The beat is depressing and lifeless, and does not make for a good party song. No redeeming qualities whatsoever.

I swear, someone is making duplicate accounts and putting the best artists of the year like Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Jackie Evancho, and OneRepublic on top of their lists. Suspiciously, they all have Gas Pedal, Love Me, and 23 all as honorable mentions.

I sense that a certain someone is controlling this. - WonkeyDude98

I'm actually put off wanting to drive when I hear rubbish like this. No, seriously. It's as if Sage was asleep in the studio and someone hit the record boring and recorded his sleep talk, then they turned the snoring into beats, and there's nothing redeeming to help out the song. - Swellow

This song is quite good. - madoog

19 Bound 2 - Kanye West

All I hear in the song is causing and hello honey boo I hate this song!

If this was worst music videos this would be 1. - SuperheroSith

I can make better music than this! He wasted 3 wonderful songs:( All that I hear is "Uh huh honey" and dirty lyrics!

I like this song. - madoog

20 Come and Get It - Selena Gomez

You can taste the autotune in this song

This song is revoltingly sexist; she's objectifying herself and being a doormat and a masochist. Every time I hear this I feel like vomiting.

If I were a poltergeist, I'd throw something at the Radio if it ever plays this song again.

"This song is revoltingly sexist; she's objectifying herself and being a doormat and a masochist. Every time I hear this I feel like vomiting."

Wow, Selena Gomez is being like Ariana Grande. If this were a song about me, I would beat her up and take a further step like Chris Brown did during his second assault towards Rihanna! - The Ultimate Daredevil
