Worst Songs of 2013

The Top Ten

We Can't Stop - Miley Cyrus We Can't Stop - Miley Cyrus Cover Art

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

I’m kinda tired of seeing this on every Worst Songs of 2013 list I come across. - I80

Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke Cover Art

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

The song is just annoying and repetitive, but the music video is just making it worse, it is just disgusting what the women are doing with their lives. This has got to be one of the worst songs ever.

Although I reckon the barbie girl song or whatever it is one the worst song in my opinion.

Best Song Ever - One Direction Best Song Ever - One Direction Cover Art

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"

More like the crappiest song ever

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

This crap should be number one. We can't stop and blurred lines are really good to be honest.

Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus Cover Art

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.

This does not deserve the list. So many idiots remixing their list saying "This song sucks, she was naked in the music video! How OFFENSIVE! " *Rolls Eyes* Who was the idiot that told you to watch the video? The video is not the song so for the love of all that is decent in the world, stop hating the SONG because of the VIDEO. Get the difference? - DCfnaf

23 - Mike Will Made-It 23 - Mike Will Made-It Cover Art

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!

Dumb ass music video and dumb ass song

Roar - Katy Perry Roar - Katy Perry Cover Art

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

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!?!?

To me, bad is the absence of good. And this is the only song, (besides Lil Wayne's) that had absolutely nothing good about it. It was dull, the singing from Katy Perry was again not good, and the lyrics were uninspired. Overall, THE WORST, beating Blurred Lines by a landslide. At least with that stupid song, it had a rhythm to it and it was a cool beat. This? Hell no!

Harlem Shake - Baauer Harlem Shake - Baauer Cover Art

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

What is this? This song brings way to much hype in a bad way. That dance is irritating. At school we have a selection to sing a song or a dance a song. I'm SO glad my friend brought cotton balls when ever I hear this garbage. And also, hopefully there is no instrumental song or regular song with a dance for the following years. Cause I don't wan't to hear Harlem Shake music again. Besides we already have Gangnam style, so this is enough

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!

It's racist! (geishas, which are Japanese appear in the video! ) You're talking about Chinese food! Not Japanese food!

The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) - Ylvis The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) - Ylvis Cover Art

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?

This is the worst song ever it so stupid

Bubble Butt - Major Lazer Bubble Butt - Major Lazer Cover Art

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.

Let’s be honest with ourselves, this is easily the worst song of 2013.

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.

I wish I could strangle whoever's repeating bubble butt over and over again

The Contenders

Gentleman - Psy Gentleman - Psy Cover Art

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!

The dance is so idiotic, there's no creativity at all.

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.

Drake did not start on the bottom. He grew up lower-middle class. Eminem was the only rapper that started from the bottom.

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

I honestly have no idea how anyone with any taste whatsoever could like this. Even if you tune out the reprehensible lyrics, you still get this slow, dreary beat that just sounds terrible. I can't think of a single thing in this song to call good or even tolerable.

Cruise - Florida Georgia Line Cruise - Florida Georgia Line Cover Art

This is not country, that's for sure.

It really makes you not want to cruse

How is this not higher on this list? This makes me want to go deaf...or better yet, listen to GOOD music.

Absolute crap song. just... no

#thatPOWER - will.i.am #thatPOWER - will.i.am Cover Art

Ever since The Black Eyed Peas departed, Will.I.am has just been banking on popular music artists from the time to make his music top 100 hits - Jeffvaderboi

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!

Justin Bieber at least hit puberty when he sang this song! You can no longer hate Justin Bieber, haters! Take this off this list, please!

This song is retarded in the whole history. Justin Bieber needs to stop singing because he ruined the whole song.

U.O.E.N.O. - Rocko U.O.E.N.O. - Rocko Cover Art

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

Karate Chop - Future Karate Chop - Future Cover Art

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".

I do not like this song. - madoog

Put this at #1 please!

Heart Attack - Demi Lovato Heart Attack - Demi Lovato Cover Art

If this song Demi Lovato keep singing about having a heart attack, then she's gonna get a REAL one.

This is one of my favorite songs - - spodermanfan1000

Why do radio stations play this and consistently ignore Kate Bush? It's sad.

Demi has an heart attack. She needs to stop singing. I hate her music. That's all! Whitney Houston is better.

Dark Horse - Katy Perry Dark Horse - Katy Perry Cover Art

Obviously one the worst songs of 2013. Someone help explain why it is even above disaster (<1/10). Katy Perry has the permanent effect of Brain Control, making everyone be her minions and forcing them to buy all her stupid songs especially this piece of junk. Juicy J screwed up his whole verse and the beat, or man, it is stupid. People really need some help getting their minds back and maybe they will realize how much of a pest Katy Perry is.

Has nothing to do with a dark horse at all. My guess is she wanted to take some old clever sounding phrase or whatever, and make it into a bad song in hopes people would think she has wisdom. Beat, stupid. Lyrics, like a 6th grade girl wrote them. The addition of 'Juicy J', doesn't make you look gangster. You're an awful, mind controlling, candy coated woman who knows nothing about real music and is sexualizing young girls because you're the only other pop star there is.

Why is this song overplayed? There's one lyric that has to do with jeffrey dahmer. That guy was a cannibal for crying out loud!

"She'll eat your heart out like jeffrey dahmer." Jeffrey dahmer ate more than just the heart. He ate the whole body.

When I Was Your Man - Bruno Mars When I Was Your Man - Bruno Mars Cover Art

I love this song it's not fair

I hate modern music... But this is a decent song.
At least the song is sang with emotion, unlike the electro-dance-pop-techno- Whatever you call it that plays on the big radio stations.

I do not like this song, but did this song have to be added to the list? Do people know what worst means? Just because you do not like a song, does not mean you have to add it to the list, as long as it does not sound terrible. When I Was Your Man does not sound terrible, but I do not like it. - madoog

I love the song so much

22 - Taylor Swift 22 - Taylor Swift Cover Art

Taylor Swift's 22 at 22nd spot. Laugh out loud

I never liked Taylor Swift, her inability to write songs and sing isn't even worth arguing over because of how obvious it is. The only thing she knows to write about, for the past 4 albums, is boys. She also only knows how to curl her hair and wear red lipstick, like every single time you see her. So it's no surprise this song was an attempt to make her look like a care-free 'hipster'. She knows nothing of hipsterism, she's a mainstream artist.

Too much autotune.
She sounds like Katy Perry.
She became a singer by telling people that she is such a "country cutie" and this song is like the worst pop song ever. It doesn't make any sense, it just reminds us how old she is by telling that she is "feeling 22".

I'm 22. Can't wait to be 23 now.

Bound 2 - Kanye West Bound 2 - Kanye West Cover Art

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!

The next time you say you're rich and show that ego to stars like Britney Spears and Katy Perry, you're losing a hand, KANYE WEST!

Suit & Tie - Justin Timberlake Suit & Tie - Justin Timberlake Cover Art

It was one of the best songs of year come on

I don't consider myself a feminist in any way, but I actually found these lyrics kind of offensive. He keeps referring to "it", how he can't wait to touch it, how it's all his. Romantic. And the line, "So thick! Now I know why they call it a fatty! " Sure does make me swoon. I like the song if I just don't pay attention to the lyrics.

I really like this song I think it is upbeat and it is one of the best songs of the year.

Uh, I like this song, it shouldn't even be here let alone the top twenty.

Pour It Up - Rihanna Pour It Up - Rihanna Cover Art

WHY IS IT ALL THE WAY DOWN HERE? THIS IS PROBABLY THE WORST SONG AND WORST VIDEO I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED! OH MY GOD WHEN I HEARD IT I LOST FAITH IN HUMANITY!

I love Rihanna, but this song is boring

Pour it up pour it up. Watch us all throw up. Hate this song so much.

It's clear that the "gangster" route is the WRONG way for Rihanna to go. She's better off making R&B love jams, like Umbrella and Diamonds. Not THIS crap.

Let Her Go - Passenger Let Her Go - Passenger Cover Art

The vocals sound like a little gremlin is singing for the first time in it's life...

Every time I hear this song I want to hurt someone... Mostly myself so I'll never have to hear this awful song. This guy learned to write lyrics from the "Dust in the Wind" and "Every Rose has its Thorn" school of rock. And oh, the lyrics... How deep they are, how insightful! And that odd, pretentious voice you use to sing the song which makes you sound like a old, wizened elf... Brilliant!

The vocals are just boring, and there's really nothing in it. And I mean NOTHING.

This song is so bad I've only made it up to the chorus after the first verse. I hope Buckley does a musical autopsy for this. Listen, if you like this song, you're an idiot who should listen to Kidz Bop's cover of thrift shop. Lets make this song #1 on this list! - ArpstaAmy333
