Top Ten Worst Songs of 2016

The Top Ten
Sweatshirt - Jacob Sartorius Sweatshirt - Jacob Sartorius Cover Art

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

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.

This song is trash and Jacob Sartorius is turning into the new Justin Bieber. Sartorius' miserable auto-tuned piece of crap song has already gathered over 700,000 disliked on YouTube in just less than a month. Sartorius uses the new sensation of wearing loved ones clothing when you "need them there." Sartorius miserable song is an internet pop sensation fail and should be taken off the web as soon as possible.

Overall the song has gotten an astonishing... 0/10. The song is a horrible mess and has gathered more hate than Donald Trump.

DEAR LORD? What is this abomination? I'm glad it's #1 on the list and it had better STAY in this place. The beat is really crappy and dumb, and his voice is a ripoff of Shawn Mendes (my favorite male singer). Like, be original. There's a difference between having someone as an influence and COMPLETELY COPYING THEM. The lyrics are really perverted and raunchy for his age (isn't he like 12? ). I mean baby by Justin Bieber was horrible, but when I found out people actually liked this...thing, I legit lost faith in humanity. The music video was dumb and it deserved the dislikes it got. The amount of respect I have for this is a negative number. I HATE IT WITH A PASSION. Lastly, there's the artist. Why are they giving talentless creeps like him recording contracts? He can't sing, he only got famous because of LIPSYNCING. REALLY? ANYONE CAN LIPSYNC. THAT REQUIRES LITERALLY NO TALENT. I hate Justin Bieber with a passion, but at least he got discovered because of actually singing which takes ...more

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 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.

Okay, but that's it. So generic and wastes their talents. Repetitive beat and a fair amount of auto-tune. The girls definitely can sing, but they each sing about three notes in this song. They have so much potential, but all they do is this. Not saying it's necessarily their fault, but it's disappointing.

On another note, why do they always have Camila do the high notes at the end? Especially here, her voice is incredibly grating and nasal, and just gets on me every time I hear the song. I get that she has an "unusual" voice and gets the most attention, but they really overdo it with featuring her in songs.

While it's debateable, I feel that Fifth Harmony are the worst pop group working currently, simply because they encapsulate everything wrong with pop music today, of which this song is a good example of that. A dull beat combined with crass lyrics that are clearly made to appeal to teenage boys who think with their penises and seems like they were singing a rejected Carry On script without the jokes. Awful all round.

M.I.L.F.$ - Fergie M.I.L.F.$ - Fergie Cover Art

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

I was a bit disappointed when Sweatshirt dropped to a #2 but when I heard this song AGAIN (because I forgotten about it) I thought it was plain AWFUL.

Fergie is not one of my favorite singers especially My Humps. Yea that was Fergie. Now she's being a whore now and wasting poor milk that I could have dipped my biscuits in.

The lyrics aren't good either. I understand why this replaced Sweatshirt as #1 for a good reason. It's worse than MY HUMP MY HUMP MY HUMP MY HORRIBLE UGLY HUMP

This... I honestly don’t know what the hell she was thinking when she thought this was a comeback because words cannot begin to describe how awful and even embarrassing this thing is. Absolutely terrible it’s all shock value to gain attention. if you like this or liked it when it first came out then I’m sorry to say there’s no help for you because this is something else.

I never wanted to pick a fight with Fergie until this song was released. I'll admit, Fergie is sexy as always. She has decently round breasts. She has thick, feminine thighs. She has a big, circular butt. So she got naked. That, my friend, is understandable and Fergie was solid with The Black Eyed Peas, which is so much better One Direction and its ripoffs will ever be. TAKE THAT, DON'T WATCH MOJO!

Juju On That Beat - Zay Hilfigerrr

This is the laziest song I've heard in years, literally zero effort was put into this. First off the beat isn't even theirs, they stole it from some 12 year old song. Second the lyrics are ridicolous, make little sense and sound like they were written by a 5 year old, thirdly these guys have no musical talent whatsoever, the 1st guy is just saying stupid crap, the 2nd guy sounds like he's trying to rap but utterly failing (he doesn't rhyme anything). It's even worse than that Watch Me song from last year and that's saying something

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.

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

Sigh, another crappy one-hit-wonder rap song from another rapper no one will care about when time flies by, and a Vines dance song that definitely belongs on Vines rather than on the charts. Not only is the sampling terrible, but Zay Hilfiger (more luxury rap crap... yay) seems to sound like he frankly doesn't care to the point you could hire a baby with a low IQ to replace him. Also,
"You ugly, you your daddy's son"
This has to be one of the worst diss tracks in the history of rap music. At least Stupid Hoe knew what it was doing.

Work - Rihanna Work - Rihanna Cover Art

You know what? I change my opinion from my first comment here. The more I listen to this song, the more respect I lose for it, and it's not just because of how lazy the hook line is. The beat isn't even finished and sounds like something M.I.A. would make, Drake's rap part is not really fitting in the song, and Rihanna's vocals are repetitive despite how the accent changes a lot, which is a shame. However, since the radio thinks a repetitive and unfinished song is better than a song that took time to make, it gets played on a constant loop.
Despite my hate for the song, it's still not that bad compared to Work From Home by Fifth Harmony, which is even worse.

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

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 was shocked as hell when this song came out to be on billboard's top and it added more fire to my rage when my friend started liking this song. Because on a serious note, I hate this song from every ounce of my body. Such a bad song this is! The beats are terrible, the music is also bad to many extents I thing and overall I just hate this song.

7 Years - Lukas Graham 7 Years - Lukas Graham Cover Art

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!

God I hate this song with a burning passion with every fiber of my body. The production here is wrenched and horrid and it starts out with this nursery rhyme sequence piano tune that is extremely repetitive and for a lazy addiction, it comes back minutes later on and as it builds up, you don't get to hear the piano tune. Also Lucas Graham's whiney voice and horrid vocals don't help it either whatsoever at all, the lyrics are repetitive and don't make any sense and its just so boring, repetitive, lazy, annoying and extremely overplayed as heck as well.

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

This is way worse than Juju on that Beat. At least that song wasn’t meant to be serious, it was just a song for a stupid vine trend. This song wreaks of ego

Treat You Better - Shawn Mendes Treat You Better - Shawn Mendes Cover Art

Honestly, I don't know what to think anymore about what most of these comments think of as an atrocity of a song and what others consider it THE BEST SONG EVER. And yes, I was wrong in a couple of my comments here. This IS a site for opinions, but calling him rude names and saying hurtful things wasn't exactly nice.
The abusive relationship message to anyone who's in a toxic relationship is a nice message and all. However, I don't exactly like how he thinks this is going to appeal to viewers and listeners, especially viewers by taking off his shirt in ALMOST EVERY SINGLE FREAKING VIDEO where he looks like he is about to have you-know-what with girls. You know how much I hate hate HATE that word with a passion. But I'm not complaining. At least he doesn't sing about it in his songs. But that's what he does pretty much in Senorita with Camila Cabello.
Also, what's with the wasted crying part of the chorus? One part of me is telling me that maybe he meant that she's needs to be ...more

Let me just go straightforward and tell you what I think about the whole thing.
I really don't like the chorus of the song. It was all just plain wrong. Honestly @all those who dislike this song, if I had to choose between You Belong With Me by Taylor Swift and this song, I'd definitely go for You Belong With Me. In You Belong With Me, she actually specifically says why the guy belongs with her, because they were best friends for a long time, and she understands him and his jokes better than his girlfriend could. She actually made it better with her song from 2009.
But then this song? The chorus just makes him like some kind of ENTITLED JERK!
And I'm not joking right now, I really do not like Shawn Mendes at all.
Instead of being more understanding to the girl, he calls her crying wasted. That's just going TOO far. Taylor Swift actually made her song better because she actually asked if the guy was okay and then she said she was sorry for all the drama he's been going ...more

I hate this song and I hate the music video too! I really do NOT like this song at all and I agree with what everyone said here.
To start off this commenting, for me, disliking Shawn Mendes was like a sort of pattern. I started out not liking him the first time I heard him, then I started liking him afterwards, then I went back to not liking him, I liked him after and now I'm beginning to get so god damn sick and tired, I can't even...
@All you Shawn Mendes fan commenters, the ones who keep throwing the same "abusive relationship" line at our faces, respect opinions please. Incase you haven't noticed (you have but choose not to notice), this is a site for opinions. Do you want me to SPELL IT OUT just incase you want to continue calling others HATERS? OPINIONS! O-P-I-N-I-O-N-S!
I understand that Shawn is trying to help a girl out of an abusive relationship here. However, I have two problems with this song.
First off, to quote what StarlightSpanks said in the ...more

You know what, I take back what I said about him irritating me. I mean, seriously, he's a good singer. He has good songs. And this is one of them. I'm not a HUGE Shawn Mendes fan, but I can give him a 10/10 because he DESERVES that 10/10. Admittedly, he's a lot more talented than Justin Bieber and he's not overrated like HE is. Plus, Justin is super rude to his fans, and even spat on them once. A real person who people look up to wouldn't do that.

Closer - The Chainsmokers Closer - The Chainsmokers Cover Art

Alright, I'm done. Everyone needs to stop hating on The Chainsmokers because of this song. I know that this song was number one for 12 weeks straight, but that doesn't necessarily make it bad. Before Closer was around, pretty much everyone I knew didn't have a problem with The Chainsmokers, back when their big songs were Don't Let Me Down and Roses. But then Closer came around, and all of a sudden, everything that The Chainsmokers did was utter garbage. That just proves the point that trends and all that are making people insane. Somebody said that this song is uncool, so all their songs are uncool, and everyone went along. Really? Somehow you're all able to love that crap Seven Years by Lukas Graham, and that song is the real worst song of 2016. And you all love the new Justin Beiber, and he sucks, and this song really doesn't, so how is that happening? Please, I'm just so sick and tired of seeing everyone complain about how "awful" this song is.

Re posting cause it didn't show up the first time.

First off I actually love the music video. The plot actually stays a bit connected to the song and Drew and Halsey have a lot of chemistry. With that being said, this song BLOWS.

Drew sounds amazing to start off, with his lower range providing some relaxation to the atmosphere, giving a weird abrupt-ion to the opening piano which sounded pretty generic. But once the prechorus hits, all Hades breaks loose. He starts going into the most try-hardy tones of voice, and any effort and even a good sense of tone is lacked. Then Halsey comes in sounding dryer than modern-day Adam Levine. She needs to be banned from going high range. The chorus is cleverly thought, but horribly executed.

All the unimportant details are shown and nothing actually worth knowing. The drop is built around the same three notes of the song making repetitive clunky noise.

The overplay didn't help either, neither did the fact that everyone ...more

Where do I even begin? I miss songs like Roses, New York City and Don't Let Me Down. Everything was fine with the Chainsmokers up until Closer when Drew started to sing for some reason. In the end this song sounds like he's trying really hard to sing but can't so he just autotunes his voice to the point where he slurs his lyrics. The chorus and verses are crap, he sounds like a drunk mental patient when he sings it. Halsey's verse, while not as slurred, is even worse, she sounds like someone strangling a monkey. They both sound like drunk mental patients. The only somewhat good part of the song (and it's mediocre at best and that's being nice), is the bridge when they don't oversing or sound like drunk mental patients choking on paper. And this trashy excuse for a song somehow stayed at #1 for 12 WEEKS, keeping good songs like Treat You Better and Scars To Your Beautiful away from the top spot. Another Chainsmokers song where Drew sings, Paris, is currently #14 and looks like it's ...more

Over Here - Rae Sremmurd Over Here - Rae Sremmurd Cover Art

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

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, I immediately knew that it was a piece of crap. Terrible songs just keep coming and coming, and this list gets larger and larger. - madoog

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

Team - Iggy Azalea Team - Iggy Azalea Cover Art

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.

A spectacularly failed comeback for Iggy Azalea. The beat is bland, the chorus is badly sung and her rapping is second-rate. Just when you think she’s taking her pseudo-Atlanta accent too seriously, she starts taking a Jamaican accent, which sounds so horrendous that it makes Nicki Minaj sound like Led Zeppelin. Seriously Iggy, I think your time has passed.

The instrumental and singing actually sound good. Azalea should stick to singing, and I am pretty sure that she will have an anthem. However, there is one unoriginal part of the song where the vocals sound like the vocals in Back That Thing Up. Did DJ Snake contribute to this song?

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

The Contenders
Me Too - Meghan Trainor Me Too - Meghan Trainor Cover Art

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.

Justin Bieber beat you to it, Meghan. And he did it way better than you. A song about people being jealous of you? Justin, as much as I hate to say it, did a great song about how he's not affected by an old relationship. Your personal ballad is a squeaky, anime-esque ear priannaha that claws it's way through your brain like the caterpillar did to Laurence Harvey in that old Night Gallery episode. The moaning hook sounds like someone chocking on a wet rag, and your weird delivery of the chorus is way too whispery and arrogant sounding. You have a great voice and you waste it on crap like this. Just mature and make love ballads or something, not this steaming pile that sounds like the rejected theme song of an anime.

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.

I think the chorus has a fun, energetic beat that can be enjoyed without reading into the lyrics too much. It is extremely narcissistic, and rather than coming off as as a taunt to haters, which would have been ok, it sounds like she is trying to pressure her more insecure fans into idolize her. I immediately had some concern over the message but I still think the chorus with it's playful synth and easy to mimic lyrical hook rescue the song from being utterly bad.

Pokemon Go Song - Misha

This should be number 1#. I feel bad for the director and you could probably hear him yawning during the middle of the song. His cringey teeth and singing annoys me. - Joshtition 24

That kid makes me cringe hard. Misha is just a mininaure hipster and fanboy of Minecraft and Pokemon. Did he actually know how to brush teeth? He just get up and play Pokemon Go without washing up and eating breakfast.

This is so annoying I feel awful for mishas neighbors when he filmed this. Repetitive and obnoxious, at least sweatshirt has a beat!

The reversed version is actually better than the original - Unnamed Google User Remade

Play that Song - Train Play that Song - Train Cover Art

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

I listened to about 20 seconds of this abomination of a song and was about to switch the station in disgust when my wife (a longtime Train fan who grew up on Drops of Jupiter, My Private Nation) told me that the artist was in fact Train. I almost veered off the road as I wretched in disgust. This band is literally out of ideas and they are cashing in on the electro-pop-retro-jazz-dance "genre" to put out radio singles these days. Just go away! I sensed something bad was coming when I could barely stomach California 37, but they have really outdone themselves this time. Absolutely horrible.

Guys. I discovered something. I really hate Train. I really do. When I heard a couple seconds of this, I had to turn it off. That's how much Pat's voice annoys me. It's a real shame that this song will most likely be played 1000389529325 times on Adult Pop Radio and get to like the Top 20 on the charts or something. Because I can't stand ANYTHING from this awful band.

I hated this song so much that I had to Google it to see who was responsible for it. I was in awe that someone could write such a lame song and that it actually gets air time. When I learned it was Train, it made sense to me. Only a well-established artist could put out this crap and it be taken seriously.

One Call Away - Charlie Puth One Call Away - Charlie Puth Cover Art

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.

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!

YES THIS SONG IS HERE! I despise this song with a passion. For some reason I knew there were other people out there who hated this like me, and I was right. It's just slow, boring, cheesy, and was ridiculously overplayed during early 2016 which made me deprove it more. Sorry if you like it (though I don't think anyone really likes this song) but it's not my favourite.

You're also one step away from losing your career, too.

No - Meghan Trainor No - Meghan Trainor Cover Art

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

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.

How many drinks would it even take to want to pick up meghan Trainor at the bar? I can't imagine this being a recurring problem for her. I thought it wasn't possible for her to top herself with songs so horrible and lazy its actually insulting, but this is where we are people. The moment all hope was lost for us as a species. We are beyond the point of no return, and it's entirely because of this song. God save us.

"Call me beautiful, so original" oh yeah because this song is totally original right? The "F you f boys stop hitting on me I'm better than you all boys hit on me f them" cliche. It must've took so long for Meghan to think of the idea... "OH MY GOSH I HAVE FOUND THE MYSTERY OF LIFE I KNOW WHAT TO WRITE A SONG ABOUT I WILL MAKE ANOTHER NARCISSISTIC SONG ABOUT PEOPLE HITTING ON ME AND I SAY NO TO THEM! " It seems like she thinks that anybody would actually hit on her

One Dance - Drake One Dance - Drake Cover Art

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.

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.

Virtually no tune. Just 2 talentless wankers singing (or trying to) to a snappy beat. This isn't music at all. This is noise! Sadder still, people are turning out in droves to buy this dribble! It reached number 1 in the ARIA charts!

This song isn't trash. It's upbeat and danceable...but that's ALL it is. It has no emotion, no happiness, and Drake just sounds bored with his day job. The other two people don't do much either.

PPAP (Pen, Pineapple, Apple, Pen) - Piko-Taro PPAP (Pen, Pineapple, Apple, Pen) - Piko-Taro Cover Art

Don't spread all your hate on this because it isn't meant to be taken seriously. This song is by a comedian for Pete's sake. Doesn't make it any better though

Now all it takes to be a meme nowadays; be Asian and do something western. It makes me wonder if half the people who do these memes actually acknowledge Asia's existence, which is most likely not.

I won't hate on this song too much because it was made by a comedian and is obviously a joke, but it's still not even that good of a meme/comedic song. weird Al and Psy he is not

What on earth is this and why pen pineapple apple pen. Rating this song. -200/200. Barely even got into any charts

Don't Mind - Kent Jones Don't Mind - Kent Jones Cover Art

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.

Gosh I really hated this song back in 2016 and I still do to this day. I'm really glad this guy is no longer relevant. This song was too damn repetitive and the vocals were incredibly annoying. Good riddance!

Panda is one of the laziest attempts at a song released so far in 2016, from Desiigner's abstract vocal cords to the nonsensical lyrics filled with product placement. However, you have to give it a +1 for having that bought-off beat that justifies the song a slight bit.

This, however, deserves nothing, and is a true embarrassment to rap music. Kent Jones' vocals are way too pitch-shifted and layered, making him sound more of a robot than an actual person. It gets worse when he sings over the lyrically content, which... is basically, Jones bragging about the girls he has of different nationalities, but the way we uses language phrases and tries combining them makes him sound more like a Tumblr SJW than an actual person. The beat might as well screw off, too. It's a rapid-fast beat that does nothing but sound out of place.

Oh look, another flash in the pan rapper with a top ten hit that is not that good. Stereotypical lyrics about how many hoes of different nationalities he has plus a stupidly simple beat make this song incredibley forgettable. Not to mention the chorus is repeated 8 TIMES. Add Kent Jones to list of rappers with one top twenty hit in 2016 we'll never hear from again along with Desiinger and Kevin Gates.

Side to Side - Ariana Grande Side to Side - Ariana Grande Cover Art

Ugh, Ariana Grande got so boring after she made Yours Truely, now she just makes annoying music that's barely even likable anymore

I wish people stopped liking Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. I think that they actually want to have sex with each other. What a bunch of losers.

This is horrible. It kept playing on the radio, Nicki sounded like she was drunk, and Ariana's first few lines annoyed me. 0/10

Another forgettable, generic pop song that won't survive outside of the 2010's. It's overly-sexual and just pure trash.

Shout Out to My Ex - Little Mix Shout Out to My Ex - Little Mix Cover Art

Who would write a song about giving shout-outs to your exes? That's just childish and wrong. - ThePwoperMuser101

A stupid song directed at Zayn from One Direction. Whoever came up with this idea deserves a punch in the jaws, because lord, is this lame, so lame it isn’t even funny. - BounceBackHater

YES! THANK YOU! Little Mix are horrendously bad! This song is a rip off of a GOOD song by a GOOD girlgroup. Don't even get me started on Little Mix's taste in fashion too. During the DNA era, they were alright up until now. I actually used to like this song until my old class (who were immature as (bleep)) ruined it for me. And doing this is wrong, I like breakup songs but this is just wrong. -1/5.

Trike. Hair was way better. - Swellow

Me, Myself, and I - G-Eazy Me, Myself, and I - G-Eazy Cover Art

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

Not great, not terrible, just okay

This song is good, well at least when compared to the other crappy rap stuff that was put out this year. My only complaint is Bebe's singing, but I have very little else to say about this song.

Because the conceit of having yourself for life is so deep, well expressed in such lyrics like 'got me for life.'

Hit or Miss - Jacob Sartorius Hit or Miss - Jacob Sartorius Cover Art

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.

Inappropriate lyrics, for real. Kid, you're just 13! 'So let's not worry bout tomo-na-na-na-na-na' is simply ANNOYING, and sounds like he's saying, 'Don't worry about getting pregnant girl! '

I don't hate this song as much as I want to. Sure, there's an irritatingly generic trap beat, yes, Sartorius is annoying, but it sure sounds a hell of a lot better than Sweatshirt.

"Cause girl, you got me thinkin' we can really do it." This song is really about Jacob's desire to have sex with a girl and it's disgusting.

Mine Diamonds - Minecraft Awesome Parodys

No, the guy who made it is a true legend and inspiration to many. - galaxyfox

Pillow Talk - Zayn Malik

I can't take Zayn seriously after him being in 1D. It's like all those girls from Disney (Miley, Ariana, Demi, Selena) but instead from a boyband, who want to make out they are all 'badass' when they will always be remembered for entertaining children, not adults

I feel sick and literally angry at him for making such horrible lyrics and nasty videos. Just shows how pop has degraded over the years.

Ladies and Gents, grab the pillows! It's time to take a nap at this poor attempt at a pop song! *dude...why did you have to drop this hard? *

Is anyone sure this isn't a Fifty Shades of Grey leftover? If so, that would explain the horrendous quality of this "song."
