Top Ten Worst Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 15

281 Love Me in a Field - Luke Bryan
282 Cash Machine - D.R.A.M. V 3 Comments
283 Not Nice - Partynextdoor
284 Torches - Daughtry
285 Get Ugly - Jason Derulo
286 Dancing on My Own - Calum Scott

I didn't know whether to add this to the 2016 or 2017 list, but either way this abomination is downright insulting. What made the original Robyn version work was that it was jolty, weird, upbeat, you could dance to it. It actually seemed like it wanted to be noticed while Robyn was dancing alone. With Calum Scott's version, he oversings excruciatingly against a dull, sanitized piano "melody" completely removing what made the original so great. This is the worst example of fake deep on the Hot 100 since Linkin Park's Burn It Down, and even that song had some empty bombast to it. -5/5 - WonkeyDude98

287 Shhh... Be Quiet - DJ Sherry and Petey Pablo
288 For Free - DJ Khaled
289 Best Friend - Young Thug
290 MY DICK - 3OH!3
291 Deepthroat - Cupcakke
292 Dystopia - Megadeth

It's not even 2016 yet. And why is there so much Megadeth on this list?

You do realize Ark-M made this list originally (alongside the Best Songs of 2016 list) by adding the entirety of the new Megadeth album on both lists as an example? He's not attacking the band, god. - Swellow

Who is putting Megadeth in this list?

Don't care about the song - Neonco31

293 I Know What You Did Last Summer - Shawn Mendes

This song actually had potential. The lyrics and concept were at least interesting, and musically the song isn't bad. Too bad they ruined it with 2 extremely lackluster vocalists. Shawn Mendes can kind of sing, but he puts no emotion into his performance at all. He sounds really bored. Camilla Cabello, on the other hand, is trying so hard to emote, but she just cannot sing. At all. - Zach808

Zach, it's uncanny how our thoughts are almost if not identical. - WonkeyDude98

This song's polarizing attributes make it come to a perfect "meh".

Pro: The lyrics. They showcase, as the title would imply, a complicated relationship where one cheats on the others.

Mid: The beat. It's nothing that special but devoid of bad.

Con: The vocals. Camila Cabello is a terrible singer with poor charisma, but has a lot of emotion. Shawn Mendes is a great singer, but has poor charisma and virtually no emotion. Normally this would help each of them but in the context of the song it causes them to clash.

I give this a decent 3/5. It's definitely better than Stitches. - WonkeyDude98

No, the song is bad. Its just 2 rotten untalented brats who can't sing. Get this song to the top 10. - Catacorn

Catacorn, Shawn and Mila aren't brats, they are the SWEETEST, most DOWN TO EARTH people ever.
And this song is AMAZING

294 Bad Things - Machine Gun Kelly & Camila Cabello

This isn't that bad but it's not the best. I love Camila Cabello and I'm a diehard Camilizer, but MGK...when he "raps" it sounds like I don't know...a beached whale. And the you really want to hear a seven-year old singing "I ONLY WANNA DO BAD THINGS TO YOU! " Probably not. I have mixed feelings about this song. Partially I like it but partially it gives me the chills. It's like MGK WANTS people to be spooked out by his lyrics...he's really good at doing THAT job.

Camila Cabello is in it, enough said.

This song is only bad things. 0/5 - WonkeyDude98

You know what? Screw my previous comment. This is pop/hip-hop PERFECTION. MGK is a really good rapper, and Camila Cabello is the BEST singer ever. The lyrics aren't that bad, they are both good vocalists, and the music video was ART. It had a STORY. Overall 5/5.

295 Life Goes On - Fergie

Am I the only one who thinks this song isn't that bad?

296 Lush Life - Zara Larsson

Only #75 on the charts? This amazing song made by a talented singer deserved so much better. - Spark_Of_Life

Absolutely annoying! The vocals are well out of tune, "instruments" are a repetetive mess, lyrics make virtually no sense, heck, this doesn't even qualify as music! This is just noise!

This song is good, not bad. I don't like singers created by talent shows but Zara is decent. - Swellow

297 There You Are - Pogo
298 Cake by the Ocean - Kidz Bop

Let's agree with this: Kidz Bop should end.

Kidz Bop is notorious for changing lyrics when they don't need to be changed.
And it turns out that when they needed to change them the most... They didn't. - JamesBourne

299 In the Name of Love - Martin Garrix

The only thing that makes me want to puke more than Bebe's performance is that cancerous drop... - Spark_Of_Life

So overplayed and ANNOYING, the drop is even worse than the drop in Closer (and that's saying a lot), Bebe's voice is so irritating, screw this I Know What You Did Last Summer ripoff

This is the worst song I have ever heard. It gives me a headache every time I hear it.

This is I Know What You Did Last Summer if:
Shawn Mendes was replaced by a crappy DJ who is worse than David Guetta and the Chainsmokers combined.
The chemistry was completely eradicated.
And worst of all:

300 Cheap Thrills - Sia

I guess I kinda could see where some people wouldn't like it, as the harmonizations may seem kinda eh, and the lyrics are basically meaningless, but come on, who are you to not enjoy fun, catchy pop music once in a while? - WonkeyDude98

This is definitely going on my "Best of 2016" list. It's fun and catchy, Sia's vocals are meaningful, the lyrics are sweet, and the synths are on point. The version with Sean Paul takes it to new heights altogether. I applaud you, Sia. - Spark_Of_Life

In a year of horrible pop music, Sia releases a feel good song and it's dissed? LMAO. This is a good song. - Swellow

I just hate the album cover so much that it makes me hate absolutely every song on it! - JarRgs
