Top Ten Worst Songs of 2016

Ark-M

The Top Ten

1 Sweatshirt - Jacob Sartorius Sweatshirt - Jacob Sartorius

This is an utterly garbage and hopeless teenage pop sensation trying to sing a song about his love relationship, but despite how Jacob is trying to sound serene, it fails at there. Literally, the whole lyrics have no meaning, cringeworthy (what does a sweatshirt have to do with love? Didn't we learn from how terrible Thomas Rhett did at it? ) and don't even relate to the relationship, making Jacob seem like that one loner at a party who can't get his feelings across well (unlike Alessia Cara, who did that and actually got the feelings across). Apart from the acoustic guitar, which is played in a dull and shallow manner, there's no beat; it's nearly hollow and boring. Jacob himself sounds way too shrill that it nearly sounds like Shawn Mendes in Stitches, a song I don't like but I know for sure did much better at it than this.
Call 2010 Justin Bieber terrible, but at least he had the decency to be awfully funny and catchy in his mess called Baby. This kid has none of those two, is a ...more - Swellow

He should have been going to school instead of making Musically's. - ThePwoperMuser101

Cringeworthy and I actually feel embarrassed for him. I'm 16 and I think his parents got him into this. I feel bad for him. Anyway his voice doesn't match the melody. A much more powerful voice is needed. Plus the meaning of the song is empty. It's about something that he isn't even really old enough to fully understand yet. Anyway 1/10 and he needs to wait 5 more years before he sings a song like this, with this kind of a melody. The whole point of the song is not something anyone over the age of 12 can relate to. Anyway I cringed so much when listening to the song my jaw hurt.

I used to love Jacob and this song. Now, I despise Jacob and this song! Why in the world did I like it? - PandasNGaga

The autotune is so bad that it hurts to listen to this song - ElSherlock

2 M.I.L.F.$ - Fergie M.I.L.F.$ - Fergie

Oh dear lord. What is this abomination? I see Fergie has taken the "aging pop star releasing a desperately controversial song all about sex to stay relevant by shock value" route. It didn't work with J. Lo's "Booty", it didn't work with Miley Cyrus's "Dooo It! ", and it isn't working for Fergie here. The lyrics are pathetically desperate and cringe worthy, as they're just an endless slew of confusing and stupid sex metaphors. Not to mention they contain way too many gratuitous "motherf*****s". The beat is stupidly simple and sounds like it was lifted from an unfinished DJ Snake track. Fergie's delivery is obnoxious and way too auto tuned - she sounds like if a chipmunk and Siri had a child. And what is up with the sudden gospel solo around the two minute mark? Oh, and some people are trying to defend this as a feminist anthem. Go listen to "I Am Woman" or "Respect", not this, which is more unfeminist than most men before ...more - Spark_Of_Life

Hello, please donate to our cause, we are trying to create a time machine to go back in time and snipe Fergie on her way to the studio to record this garbage pile of a song. Any contributions are accepted.

The music video is disgusting - ElSherlock

This was just released and it is already at number 6. That's how bad it is. It will probably get to #1. - Martinglez

3 Juju On That Beat - Zay Hilfigerrr

First, this is bringing back the stupid vine dance trend. It's not 2015 anymore people. Second, it insults the listener, which sure as hell doesn't make the listener feel good at all by saying "You Ugly. You Your Daddy's Son" dissing both you and your father. Last, and most disgraceful, this went from number 83 to number 11 on the billboard chart in one week. Please throw these one-hit-wonders back into the river they came from

What does juju means? - ElSherlock

Out of all the dance songs from Vine that has ever made popular, this is easily the worst of the lot. At least Watch Me was easy to dance to. At least Hit the Quan had lyrics that made sense. Even Nasty Freestyle looks like Beethoven compared to this. The singers sound like they're thirteen years old, it's blandly repetitive, and actually goes so far as to insult the listener of the song itself. Easily the worst song of the year, possibly one of the worst songs ever. - Spark_Of_Life

I hate this song so much and it was played at school dances! - PhoenixAura81

4 Work from Home - Fifth Harmony

If you've seen the X-Factor, you can tell these girls for the most part are very talented, maybe not at their peak just yet, but talented. The problem is that they've become another terrible hand puppet of Simon Cowell, the same man responsible for Cher Lloyd and One Direction. So far, all the material they've put out has just been horrible. The material they're given doesn't do them any favors, the production does nothing for them, they show no personality, and they're just being marketed for sex appeal rather than for actual talent that they do in fact possess. Their material is bland, rips off other bad songs, and shows no sign of any personality. If you took away Simon Cowell, gave them some competent producers and decent material that really enabled them to shine, and more time to develop, they could actually become something special. And for the record, as horrible as the Pussycat Dolls were, they actually did have two very talented singers, Nicole Scherzinger and Melody ...more

I think the second Camilla found out about that, it was the perfect time for her to leave the group. - Kid_ethinederland

This is like Rihanna's "Work" - ElSherlock

I do not know why people are comparing this to Work - Rihanna feat. Drake. This sounds nothing similar to Work, not even close. Just because the song has work in the song title and came out the same year as Work, does not mean that they copied. This song sounds kind of catchy. This song got stuck in my head. "oh-oh-oh-oh" This might be the first Fifth Harmony song that I like. One of the members sounds like a baby. I am not saying that is a bad thing. - madoog

Everything from Syco music is horrible, and this is definitely no exception. -10/5 - iloveit

5 7 Years - Lukas Graham

Now that I've come to think of this, I hate this song with every fiber of my body, and I'm going to admit it in the easiest way I can.

The production here is wretched and horrible. It starts off with this nursery rhyme-esque piano tune that gets so repetitive, it feels like it's trying to hypnotize it. During the chorus, it builds up, so you don't get to hear the piano tune, but then it comes back minutes later, and it feels like an extremely lazy addition. Lukas Graham's vocals don't help it, either.

What's worse than the production is Lukas Graham's vocals. When it comes to European voices, I usually appreciate them (e.g. Sinead O'Connor or Tove Lo), but Lukas Graham's I can't stand at all. He sounds like he was singing the song before he got up in the morning, and he reeks of an extremely low range. Even worse is that his croaky voice during the high notes makes Sia's high note voice look perfect in comparison. Like I said in the previous paragraph, it nearly feels ...more - Swellow

This song is appearently supposed to be about his father, but he's only mentioned in different lines twice and one of them is just his Dad him to get friends. Everyone needs to stop defending this "meaningful" and "deep" song when it's really just a jumble of life events thrown together on a terrible beat. Easily one of the worst songs of the year. - Spark_Of_Life

OH MY GOD I HATE THIS SONG... The lyrics don't make any sense! First he gets married at eleven, then he says just like "my daddy before me". What does that even mean? We always says his age. WHY THE HELL DO WE CARE?! Next, his "woman" brings him children, apparently just so he can sing to them. How messed up is that? Next, he's saying sorry to his brother. What happened? Did he kill him? Anyway the thing that pisses me off the most about this song is how popular it is. Whenever this song comes on the radio, I always see these girls singing along, and it pisses me off so much. Bye! - jimmyjimmy

This song is from 2015 - ElSherlock

6 Work - Rihanna

Swallow and the other person here literally spoke for me. I've hated this pile of trash that gets stuck in my head and the more I hear it the more respect I lose for it.

I miss Rihanna back when she made good songs like SOS, Umbrella, Don't Stop The Music, Only Girl In The World, We Found Love, etc, but after 2012, her music has gotten SUBPAR. Unapologetic and ANTI are her worst albums. And this is a good example of how trashy she's become.

The beat is unfinished like LITERALLY. NOT. FINISHED. Good idea Rihanna (sarcastically)! The vocals were awful. I know she's singing in Jamaican on the hook, and she deserves a huge one-up for embracing her heritage and native dialect, but...that's not what makes it sound like gibberish. In fact honestly THE WHOLE SONG SOUNDS LIKE GIBBERISH. She uses so much autotune, you can't understand a WORD she's saying, which leads me to wonder...IS SHE DRUNK? SHE. LITERALLY. SOUNDS. DRUNK. All I hear is "wawawawawawa blah blah blah, ...more

I reference this song all the time when taking about school - Muffet13

Where do I even begin. I miss songs like SOS, Umbrella, and Pon de Replay. Everything was fine with Rihanna until Anti, when she suddenly decided to go rap for no reason. In the end this song sounds like she wants to rap but can't and just kinda slurs her words together. The chorus is crap, she sounds like a drunk mental patient when she sings it, which is just the words "work" "dirt" and "hurt" repeated on a continuous loop along with unintelligible that sounds like she's choking on a wad of paper. Drake's verse, while not bad, is out of place and dosen't go with the background music at all. The only good part of the song is the bridge, when she comes close to actually singing and not sounding like a mental patient. And this trash pile of a song somehow stayed at #1 for 10 WEEKS, keeping good songs like Stressed Out and I Took a Pill in Ibizia from the top spot. Another Rihanna rap song, Needed Me, is at #13 right now and looks like it's going yo be ...more

This song is repetitive - ElSherlock

7 Me Too - Meghan Trainor

This is probably the worst song I've ever heard. Meghan actually doesn't have a terrible voice from what I've heard of her acoustic performances, but she insists on using her voice in the most annoying ways in all of her singles, ESPECIALLY this one. She sounds like she's talking for most of it, and when she doesn't, her vocals are incredibly grating. The production on here is godawful. Seriously, what the hell is this beat? The lyrics are the worst part, though. In addition to being repetitive to no end, they have a terrible message. She's basically the equivalent of those popular girls in your average terrible teen movie who just goes around saying, "I'm so cool, and you suck! " It's not inspiring or positive, if anything it's insulting to the listener! This is just an abomination of a song and it's by far the worst song released this year, which is saying something considering how terrible of a year this has been for music.

A lot of these songs are great choices because 2016 has been a horrible year for pop music; however there is no song that has come out so far this year that is this annoying and unlistenable and makes me never want to listen to this song again. This woman's voice is so annoying and the lyrics of this piece of garbage are like do I even need to tell you why they are horrible? For example there was a line "So bless me baby. A choo! " Seriously? Do I need to tell you why it's bad? I seriously hope this piece of garbage will never be a hit because it sucks.

The MeToo movement would love this song - ElSherlock

She thinks she can do EDM SO WELL but NOPE! - PhoenixAura81

8 Over Here - Rae Sremmurd

I'm typing this on my phone from my hiding place high up in a tree. There I was, listening to the radio, when suddenly blood started leaking out of my ears at an alarming rate. I barely had enough time to call the paramedics before I collapsed. When I woke up, one of the meds told me that I had lost nearly half the blood in my body. "But why? " I asked. He choked back a sob, and said, "I'm sorry, but you heard a Rae Sremmurd song. You'll be fine, but you'll have to get a blood transfusion. After all, you've been infected." Suddenly, we heard a scream from the driver compartment and the ambulance swerved off the road and hit a tree. Everyone was killed except me. I somehow managed to crawl out and heard maniacal laughter of Rae Sremmurd from the radio as their song ended. "Yes." They said. "We've been sent by Satan himself to invade your radios with our ear-raping talentlessness. And when all lovers of good music are killed by our horrendous voices ...more - Spark_Of_Life

It sucks so bad - ElSherlock

Rae Sremmurd are not good artists, they sound like two kids who sneak out to parties every night and get drunk...

When I first heard this song on the radio, I knew it was going to be horrendous. Also whist listening to this song by Rae Sremmurd I feel like my ears leaking out blood and dying due to their evil torturous voices

Well Iggy, no one wanted to be on your team and it's better for your to remain solo in your team and leave the music industry alone. - Hellohi

Trash - ElSherlock

Oh, Iggy, just retire already. No one has cared about you since summer 2014. - Spark_Of_Life

This song proves that Iggy Azalea stinks at singing, her voice is atrocious as heck and when combined with autotune and mask quality, it makes it a horrendous experience to listen to. Folks, I think it's time iggy azalea quits her career as a singer and nobody has ever cared about her since summer in 2014, enough said.

10 Closer - The Chainsmokers

The lyrics are disgusting, immature, and make no sense. The chorus is just ear-rape, and the beat drop? I'd rather listen to Sweatshirt then hear that cancerous beat drop again. I used to actually like The Chainsmokers, their past work was wonderful and creative, but now? They are using other garbage singers to make awful songs. What happened to their past songs? They contained fantastic lyrics and a great beat drop. What happened to The Chainsmokers?

But I have something else to rant, its way worse than the lyrics or the beat drop:

THE MUSIC VIDEO: God where do I begin? Its disgusting, sexual, and NASTY. Who on Earth would watch a cheap version of a 50 Shades of Grey knockoff porno in 4 minutes? Its just 2 untalented people making out. And lets not forget, the retarded radio stations replayed this trash like a broken record that can never be fixed. - Catacorn

I simply can't stand this. What type of lyrics are those? The songwriters obviously didn't even try to write. Play Baby, play Sweatshirt, play Stupid Hoe, I'd rather listen to those instead of this terrible "song".

It's mind-boggling to why this song is so popular despite being so hated. I guess people will listen to anything nowadays. - alphadan12

I thought it actually couldn't possibly get any worse than when Sweatshirt somehow slithered its way into the public eye. But then I heard this. I am a pretty big Chainsmokers fan and have enjoyed much of their work in the past, but I will never listen to another song of theirs again without a heavy measure of skepticism. This song is just so wrong in so many different, unique, and horrifying ways. The maudlin, gross lyrics, the irritating, hedonistic chorus, and that beat drop...sweet Jesus, I don't even like to talk about it.

Their other songs are better than this - ElSherlock

11 Treat You Better - Shawn Mendes

I hate Shawn Mendes so much. Mainly because of his waste of potential. I actually genuinely liked Something Big, but after that, he just started making such generic, boring, borderline awful music. It started with Stitches and now this dreck? "Break up with him, I'm the better choice." I'm done.

This was made by an awful singer, enough said - ElSherlock

Awful song, awful singer. - PandasNGaga

This is suffering from the same problems as "Jealous": admittedly good instrumentals being ruined by a lackluster vocal performance and a horrendous set of lyrics/subject matter. But unlike "Jealous", this isn't catchy enough to save anything from going in one ear and out the other. No one is going to remember this is five years. - Spark_Of_Life

13 No - Meghan Trainor

From a person who thought Meghan's Title era was awful, I was not expecting her to change into the 2000s pop-like genre, but she did, and managed to hit it worse than she did with her outdated bubblegum pop hits.

Meghan's biggest problem in the song is the lyrics. They range from being too finesse and self-righteous ("I don't need your hands all over me", ironic to say when you wanted to "get it on" in your last song, eh? ) to burning the man who is in love with her ("Call me beautiful, so original" once again, you said in DFH you wanted the guy to call you beautiful "each and every night". Make your mind up.) Eventually, the lyrics all build up and show off Meghan's vile, cruel and anti-social side, to the point the song makes her out to be a tyrant ("I don't want you to take this personal" Oy vey, Mrs. Ego.). Her vocals are also another problem. They try too hard to be Britney Spears-like, but they are way too low and ...more - Swellow

This song is a no - ElSherlock

Meghan you should stop making music for your own good. - iloveit

I guess making bad 50s pop music wasn't enough for Meghan Trainor, so she instead jumped ahead to early 2000s pop. And of course she takes the worst parts of the genre, like always. Production that sounds like something Max Martin would make in his sleep for NSYNC, and annoying personality and lyrics that remind me way too much of Destiny's Child. The sad part? This is probably her BEST single so far, since it's only annoying rather than horrifying or disrespectful.

14 Play that Song - Train

The thing I used to love about train is how odd and out there they had been. Their lyrics always made close to no sense, the singer didn't have the classic good voice, but it all fit together with their odd pop/rock quirky vibes. This song... is honestly the most terrible thing I have ever heard. The theme is boring, hopping onto the bandwagon of "play the music my chick likes so we can bang". It even stoops down to a Michael Jackson level of conceded (the one that makes her think ooof me), which makes it feel like all of the other pop songs where the singer is just an ass trying to money.

I am aware the band paid for the rights to Heart and Soul, but why in god's name would they want it? Heart and Soul is a classic, don't get me wrong, but god, adding lyrics, and this monstrosity of lyrics in particular, was just such the wrong way to go. They attempted to turn a classic song into a pop/dance hit. It's garbage. I'm not even sure what that instrument that sounds like ...more

Don't play this song - ElSherlock

50 Ways to Say Goodbye was an excellent song and my favorite song when I was in third grade. This song was overplayed and is awful. - PhoenixAura81

One time at school someone was playing one of my favorite songs, but then some other girl said "Not this song! Lets put on play that song instead" And they put on this song and it was so annoying but the worst thing of all the song title reminded me of something I hate. - Pieclone

15 One Call Away - Charlie Puth

This song is boring - BounceBackHater

This is trash - ElSherlock

I do not understand why One Call Away is even on this list. Wow. I am shocked. Now, this is one Charlie Puth song that I like. I do not find anything wrong with the "Superman got nothing on me" lyrics. Yeah, this was a little overplayed, and I like it. One Call Away is good --- the beats and somewhat relaxing atmosphere. - madoog

Though We Don't Talk Anymore is worse. This is just a horrible piece of garbage. Charlie Puth is the worst singer of all time and he has never made a good song. All his songs are fackin dull and sheet. Besides this is so bad it's pretty weird. Weirdly awful. AND THIS isn't THE WORST CHARLIE PUTH SONG. -1/5. CHARLIE SUCKS! - AlphaQ

16 One Dance - Drake

No one would dance to this song - ElSherlock

I don't get why this song was popular. This is one of the worst songs on Views, and that's saying a lot, because Views was a terrible album. The lyrics are just typical Drake trying his hardest to sound romantic and fail miserably. The vocals and production are what really kill the song, though. The vocals sound lazy and the beat is snappy, making the worst mixture possible, which makes the song boring as hell.

How the hell did this get to number one and stay there for about 10 weeks. Views is one of the worst albums of all time and this is the worst song from it

I agree. Panda should have been #1 for longer. Panda should have been for 5 or 6 weeks before being replaced - AlphaQ

This song wasn't bad to begin with, but after it played numerous times on the radio, I realized who lazily composed it actually was. This song is the reason the dancehall beat was popularized, and I could take it or leave it at this point.-3/5. Not bad. - shiftaltkey

19 Hit or Miss - Jacob Sartorius

This song is a miss - ElSherlock

This song is awful. Sweatshirt has over 1m dislikes. WHO THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO MAKE ANOTHER SONG?! I listened to the whole music video and every time Jacob sings, I can feel death. My ears are still recovering from sweatshirt, and this song isn't making them any better. The whole "Hot or Miss" thing makes absolutely no sense, the music video is just a bunch of girls stare at Jacob Bleach Ad and get hurt and Jacob gets a concert that if that actually happened while I was at a beach, I would purposely drown myself. BUT. I will give it credit on one thing. It's not as terrible as Sweatshirt. Sweatshirt will always be the Satan of music.

I guess they never miss, huh?

I get he's 13 and all but he needs to get off the internet and go to school.

What is he even saying in this song? - ElSherlock

Okay the ONLY reason I didn't vote this damn song was because I saw Meghan Trainor higher on the list and obviously saw her first, so I voted her. I'm in middle school and kids my age are immature as hell so they were singing this song a lot. I was praying that one of them made it up and it wasn't an actual song because songs get PUBLISHED and if THAT piece of scrap song got published... well guess what? About a month later I hear it on the radio. That was when I REALLY lost hope for music. Somehow I still had some after Work but DAMN this song doesn't want optimism for people that listen to good music, does it? I mean seriously, she says pardon my French after speaking Japanese. What the hell! Imagine someone who's never heard this song asks you to tell them what the song is about and you say, "someone dates people that speak different languages" there. That's what the song's about. So amazing. I could listen to that al daay. While cringing.

24 Me, Myself, and I - G-Eazy

Best song.
People vote for the unrelateable love songs as good, but put Aromantic anthems like this and No on the worst lists! - Muffet13

Mediocre song - ElSherlock

At first, I liked this song. Then, I thought it was average. Then, I thought it was bad. Now, I think it's garbage. Even though songs have fallen harder over time than this one, I don't think a song has fallen this fast.

This song is the definition of wasted potential. Not on G-Eazy's part: sure his lyrics aren't inherently that bad and his flow is actually decent if not a little rigid, but he's really not that special and not a good rapper.

No, the lost potential is at fault of Bebe Rexha as well as the production. Bebe Rexha is an absolute powerhouse of a vocalist, almost at the level of Charli XCX, but between this and Hey Mama...is this the road she wants to take? The hook is SANG BY BEBE REXHA, FOR G-EAZY. WOW, NICE MOVE, NARCISSIST. It doesn't help that her voice is grating and shrill when it isn't breathy and ragged. The production on this is fantastic. The piano riffs are on key, the trap percussion is bone-chilling and rhythmic, and the hi-hats come at the best ...more - WonkeyDude98

Seriously? First a song about a Panda, and now there's a song about Timmy Turner, all by one person?

This song proves that music has become crap, and proves how immature the artists have become. Proves how much music can change in 4 years.

This is actually much better than Panda, even though Panda is alright. He actually raps about himself rather than the material things. There is material references in there but it's not bragging because it adds to Desiigner's story of himself and his inner struggle

I love this song

I actually like this song. It is one of the most unique electronic songs, I am not even a fan of house music, but I like this. It sounds out of the ordinary, more creative, and people will think I'm crazy, but yes, I like this song. It is a song that sounds awful at first, but then gets better.

Who even likes that ear-splitting drop in the first place? - StarlightSpanks

This cringeworthy song legitimately pisses me off. These talentless hacks steal... I mean, sample 95% of the entire thing from House Of Pain's 1992 masterpiece of the same name. Except this piece of trash has NONE of the charm, catchiness, or badassery of the old one. And now all the rap worshippers are going to think that Waka Flocka Flame and KSI are creators of those sick bagpipes and the clever lyrics when they're not.

This song is so creepy - BounceBackHater

What a creepy song - ElSherlock

Do I have to explain? No, I don't. Anohni's constant murmuring in a deep but hilariously bad voice trying too hard to bring back her male voice just makes the beat, which consists of fuzzy noises and nothing that spruces it up, horrific. Not only that, the way she brings out the lyrics makes me wonder what happened in her studio. - Swellow

I don't necessarily hate Obama, but there's actually a song about him? Especially one that's considered terrible? I don't know if the song is praising or criticizing Obama, but either way, it's just too cringe-worthy for me to even think about researching what it's about. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

34 This One's for You - David Guetta

What! This song is amazing! Why on earth is it so high on the list? - BounceBackHater

It kind of sounds good - ElSherlock

Guetta should probably stop trying to appeal to a young generation, making songs called "Turn me on" in his 40's stops being acceptable and starts being creepy.

To be honest, I like his song "Turn Me On", the only song where Nicki Minaj sings that I can bear.

THAT DROP! The song would have been awesome without it. 0/5 - ProPanda

35 Flatline - B.O.B.

This song was made by a flat earther - ElSherlock

After his amazing collaboration with Hayley Williams... he decides to give us a song about an outdated theory? - Swellow

Probably the absolute worst thing about this song is that when I looked at the comment section of the song on YT, there were people who actually BELIEVE that the world is flat! You honestly don't deserve a school education if you're this stupid. - Mcgillacuddy

He is an idiot for thinking the world is flat. Even worse, he revealed himself as a Holocaust denier here. Automatically the worst song of the year.

36 Gold - Kiiara

What...even is this? It sounds like random noises anyone could find in your basic YTP sound pack. Kiarra's voice is very whispery and drags out syllables too long. She sounds like a female Tyler Joseph high on acid. Plus, her voice jabs into the lackluster instrumentals at seemingly random times. I didn't even know if was possible to do vocal jump cuts. Did the producers just grab the first junkie they saw on the street outside the studio and get her to record? YUCK. 0/10. - Spark_Of_Life

Not gold - ElSherlock

Gold? More like old rusted tin can. - Hellohi

Did someone make a collaboration of Youtube Poop videos and combine them into one? This song sure sounds like one, and a bad one at that. - Swellow

37 Mama Said - Lukas Graham

Mama said that she doesn't like this song - ElSherlock

Um, this is like a HORRIBLE version of "Hard Knock Life" by Jay Z. At least the kids in that song could actually sing

Mama said shut the hell up and stop copying Annie. - AnonymousChick

Jay Z did Hard Knock Life better than these talentless hacks behind 7 Years. Cringey and annoying. - Spark_Of_Life

38 No Broken Hearts - Bebe Rexha

Nicki's verse is good - ElSherlock

I imagine some amateur making this song in his garage. Which is not to say anybody who is amateur and makes music in a garage is bad at making music- the point is I can't believe this was made by a professional. It gets stuck in my head and I don't want it to. The 2000s cliches are irritating: yet another song that features *insert whatever you want here* "in the club", autotune that is unnecessary and drone-like (the singing seems particularly bored and unaffected by the content being sung), and a melody that seems very out of place with the chords. You know when a toddler tries to sing along something and it barely sounds like the melody they are singing along to because they don't understand how to match their pitch? It sounds like what is happening in this song.

Even with the painful auto tune, Nicki has a great verse.

I like bebe rexha's I got you but this song has that WORD in it-and it is really bad. Nicki minaj sucks and makes every good song bad.

39 Formation - Beyonce

This could have been better - ElSherlock

At least this didn’t be the hit in the UK, Hold Up was the hit in the UK - BounceBackHater

This is probably the worst song on Lemonade(an actually great album). The production is a damn mess and the lyrics are trash. It is sad that this had to be the biggest hit from Lemonade. 6 Inch and Freedom were more deserving of being hits.

Formation debuted at number 10 and flopped. Sorry was actually the biggest hit. - thisisastupidname

Why did the worst songs from Lemonade have to become the biggest?

40 H.O.L.Y. - Florida Georgia Line

Country music has been going downhill and this song shows it - ElSherlock

So this is what country music has come to. Brain-dead Valley-speak men bragging about their redneck lifestyles and banging women disguised as being "holy". Not a good idea, never has been, and never will be. - Swellow

Florida Georgia line are like nickelback, a band despised by many that manages to sell lots of records.

This song makes no sense. I wish I didn't see this song... country music is getting horrible

41 Boomerang - Jojo Siwa

Jojo Siwa is awful - ElSherlock

She's a talentless little maggot who only got famous because her mom got her a record deal. Jojo, you're a child, go to school instead of making America's eardrums bleed

She has so much makeup on in the video that she looks fake

It's so annoying

42 Selfie - Mark Thomas

I thought it was a girl singing - BounceBackHater

Ouch it hurts to listen to this song - ElSherlock

Hello Jacob, meet Mark Thomas, another dumb adolescent with the same screeching, untalented voice as you. Alright, you two work on your collaboration, I need to dash. I've got a massive order of bleach delivered to my house. Bye!

He shouldn't be worrying about girls and should be worrying about his algebra homework.

43 Broccoli - D.R.A.M.

Horrible song - ElSherlock

This sounds like if Sesame Street tried to make a song about hash. And that isn't nearly as interesting as it sounds. D.R.A.M can't rap for crap and Lil Yachty sounds like he's crying when he "sings" - Spark_Of_Life

This so called "song" #6 on Billboard. I mean, how? This song is awful.

This should be at least top 50. This belongs in the dark side of modern hip hop music. I honestly don't have any words for this song except for 0/5 stars. - Mcgillacuddy

44 Dat $tick - Rich Chigga

Rich Chigga? Lol that name makes me laugh! Anyway, bad song - BounceBackHater

Rich Chigga
What kind of name is this? - ElSherlock

A song so bad it ends barely after 2 minutes LOL! And that's not even sped up! - SelfDestruct

I can only guess this is about a car's gear-stick, right? - Swellow

45 Back to Sleep - Chris Brown

Other than the 'f you back to sleep' line, this is actually a pretty decent song, probably one of the last decent songs he made. - DaWyteNight

This is one of the best songs he made lately - BounceBackHater

No not Chris Brown - ElSherlock

I'm going back to sleep until something actually good to listen to is made... - MeaganSaysHI

46 Wild Love - Cashmere Cat

The drops sounds like an autotuned cat choking - Hellohi

47 Panda - Desiigner

Even Tiimmy Turner (another song by him) ism better than this - ElSherlock

I listened to this song once. Before then, I had faith in the future of humanity. - Spark_Of_Life

Possibly the most overrated song of this year. Not only is the decent beat riddled with Desiigner's weird vocal sounds, the lyrical theme is basically Desiigner's ramble of two sports cars (with extra product placement! ) that look like pandas. People need to stop defending these "deep and meaningful" raps when they are really cluttered messes. - Swellow

This song practically gives me nightmares, that's how bad it is. Should be in the top three on this list, and it should also have a spot in the top ten on the worst songs of all time. - Nebby_

48 P***y Print - Gucci Mane

In case you're wondering, the title comes from the fact that Gucci has so much money in his pockets they look like a...well. The fact that you can make a three minute song about this depresses me. This does not deserve to exist - Spark_Of_Life

This is an epically crude topic to make a song about.

Gucci Mane sucks and ytf does he have an ice cream tattoo on his face?

49 Dangerous Woman - Ariana Grande

Don't hate me but I like this song - ElSherlock

When I think of Ariana Grande, the word 'dangerous' never comes to mind. - DaWyteNight

Boring but this game will keep you busy and boring as hell of a game and you can't stop the feeling week when you're submissive out of ten games you have never seen a song that you have never seen and the game will never get better with your hands up and you have to keep playing it all of the game you can beat tattoo games on your phone or something to be seen as the heck week after week of game and the week is the same game will I ever have to keep it to

Arian Grande is only a famous singer for her looks. Nothing more. Like so many others nowadays, she don't make music, she makes noise!

50 Roses - The Chainsmokers

This song is great - BounceBackHater

This is good - ElSherlock

This song isn't bad, I just don't like the vocals, and it got old fast as it appeared on the radio way too much.

This song is really good. - Powerfulgirl10
