Top Ten Worst Songs of 2016Ark-M
The Contenders: Page 2
This is some of the most phoned in Drake has ever been. He hasn't sounded this bored since Started From The Bottom, you know, ONE OF THE WORST SONGS OF ALL TIME. The beat is passable on an aesthetic level, but on a technical level it's just awful. The sparse piano and snappy drums sound unfinished, which is funny because Drake was on a song this year that literally was unfinished (Work). Yeah, still a 1/5, not even one of my three least favorites on Views. I mean, when you have Hotline Bling, Pop Style, Feel No Ways, and CHILD'S PLAY on your album, you have competition. - WonkeyDude98
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
I love how drake thinks he is a rapper but he can't rap. He sounds more like he is singing.V 26 Comments
Who would write a song about giving shout-outs to your exes? That's just childish and wrong. - ThePwoperMuser101
Trike. Hair was way better. - Swellow
Uh...the "shoutout" is supposed to be catty and vicious. It's not like "hey, how's it going", it's rubbing the breakup in the guy's face and oh wow I love this 5/5 - WonkeyDude98

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
If it wasn't for the admittedly good chorus, no one would remember this song. G-Eazy has absolutely no personality whatsoever, and none of his lyrics are memorable in the slightest. - Zach808
Not great, not terrible, just okay
You know what? The more I hear this trash pile of a song, the more respect I lose for it. And it's not even because of how overplayed it is. G Eazy CANNOT rap AT ALL, Bebe rexha sounds like a dying cow, this is just a disgrace! The lyrics aren't confident or empowering...they sound egotistical from an insecure narcissist! Go listen to Bad Things, it's much better than this pile of crap!
Oh and Bebe, you can't sing! Stop trying to copy Camila Cabello whom you'll never be as good as!
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
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
I refuse to believe that this is a "song". Even worse, how did this "song" even get popular. Why do I know this exists? Forget any of the political terrors that happened last year. THIS is the worst thing to ever "grace" 2016. I'd rather hear "Revolution 9" and "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict" on repeat for 5 years than hear 5 seconds of this "song". Plain and simple, this SUUCCCKKKSSS!
This is literally the worst song ever madeV 34 Comments
Tell me who put Dystopia's first three songs here? This is just one awesome song!
Yes, because an anthem of borderline accidental racism is awesome! - WonkeyDude98
Honestly if I wasn't so concerned with keeping WFH on Sweatshirt's tail on the list, this would probably be in my bottom 5 of the year. A sludgy, bland trainwreck where Dave Mustaine lets out his inner Donald Trump, vocally and lyrically. -1/5 - WonkeyDude98
KSI should have stayed a "one hit" wonder while he was safe with the relatively guilty-pleasure-worthy Keep Up (a song I (I'm sorry Puga) actually like), but now he resorts to plagiarism, this time taking from the amazing House Of Pain classic. Yay...0/5 - WonkeyDude98
Whoever told KSI that he would make a great hit singer should be flogged. - Swellow
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. Skip this awful abomination at ALL COSTS. - Spark_Of_Life
Ksi making songs, where's the bleach? - VideoGamefan5V 5 Comments
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. - AnimeDrawer
THAT DROP! The song would have been awesome without it. 0/5 - ProPanda
This is the type of stuff chavs crank up at three AM in the morning when trying to be cool... man, David you should have given up earlier. - Swellow
Anything with these two hacks has got to be awful.V 5 Comments
Future's vocals are wicked. - AlphaQ
Boring bleh mixed with cough syrup. That's all I can describe with this "song".
Surprised no one's called out this God-forsaken atrocity yet. Probably because it just hung low enough on the charts to be an undeserved hit. Honest is still my least favorite album of all time, and while this is better than some of its remnants, it's not by much. Metro Boomin's production consists of two-piece strings, a trap beat, and vocals. Three watermarks right here guys.
And of course, Future's whining/mumbling/yawning with autotune about how women aren't loyal to him and SERIOUSLY WE GET IT YOU'RE SAD BECAUSE CIARA DUMPED YOU
Never forget "wee woo wee woo wee woo wee". This guy has fans, by the way. -1/5 - WonkeyDude98
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.
Bebe Rexha has been ruining EVERYTHING she touches lately, that is unless it was already terrible to begin with. Between Hey MaMa, Me Myself and I, that one song with Nico and Vinz, and this, I'm not sure this is the same woman who The Monster by Eminem and Rihanna was originally for. This is a grating trap party song. Well, at least Nicki's verse is okay. 1/5 - WonkeyDude98
Even with the painful auto tune, Nicki has a great verse.
This is an overplayed disaster. WHO TOLD BEBE SHE CAN SING? because she sure as hell can't. And then it had to feature nicki Minaj, who is the epitome of fake and terrible. If you want a better club anthem, listen to Crying In The Club by Camila CabelloV 9 Comments
I am literally speechless. Everyone who called Jacob Satorius a Justin Bieber ripoff, let me introduce you to a young adolescent they call Mark Thomas. Between the beeping twinkle of a melody, the awkward, generic lyrics, and the vocals which are almost identical to 2010 Justin Bieber if they added more annoying vocal effects, yeah, I hate this. 0/5 - WonkeyDude98
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.
I honestly thought this was a girl when I heard him singing and the lyrics are so stupid and pointless. The beat doesn't really help, either.V 23 Comments
Except for Gaga being a little nasal at times, this is pretty damn good. But still, it's no Bad Romance. - Spark_Of_Life
Not Lady Gaga's best. It's a bit too safe. It's still Lady Gaga, and in the mainstream in 2016, I'll take what I can get. 4/5 - WonkeyDude98
I was expecting a new song by her. Perfect Illusion is great --- and great song title. This song pushed all the bad songs out of the way. - madoog
This song is amazing. - SwellowV 4 Comments
Whether you are liberal or conservative, let's all agree that this song is terrible. - Swellow
What is this. What even is this. A Hillary support anthem...k. Even ignoring that, it just sounds awful. Everything is painfully compressed, the singer (? ) is just slightly off-beat, the three different synth lines are all buzzy, chintzy, and none of them have weight or calm, and the whole thing is just embarrassing. I can't even rate it. - WonkeyDude98
This is a Hilary Clinton support anthem.
Weren't these gals a punk band? - djpenquin999
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."
Who the heck calls there song "Pillow Talk"? Do you talk about pillows? stupid!V 20 Comments
A song so bad it ends barely after 2 minutes LOL! And that's not even sped up! - SelfDestruct
You know music is crap when an artist misspells every word in the title. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes
I can only guess this is about a car's gear-stick, right? - Swellow
Rich Chigga? More like...Bitch Njgga! - AlphaQV 3 Comments
Please, Selena and Charlie, change the title to "We Don't Sing Anymore" and then retire. - Spark_Of_Life
Why is this guy still making trash like this? I hated One Call Away but this takes the cake. Awful lyrics. This song is trying to imitate somebody that I used to know and failing. Awful lyrics, atrocious production, both artists not trying to work the song out together, enough said.
Charlie Puth showed so much promise on See You Again. But nope. This, along with Marvin Gaye and One Call Away are all on my 20 worst songs of the 2010s. What happened? Good job Puth, hope you're happy.
Well you just talked. Nice try - EpicJakeV 11 Comments
OH MY GOSH THAT VOICE. IT'S ANNOYING THE LIVING CRAP OUT OF ME.
Just look at that cover and the title! - Neonco31
OK I'm getting old but is this what you really want your little kiddies singing as they go off to junior school? Sick of the flipping overuse of Autotune in that hideous helium/warbly effect.
Let's just say if I'm forced to listen to this noise one more time, I will destroy the stereo playing it. Everything from the dumb beat to the degrading lyrics, & that horrible computerised screeching they have after the chorus all makes for a horrible listening experience. Should be number 1 on the worst of list.
Seriously, how can anyone listen to this & say it's good?
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
I actually don't hate this one. The instrumentals are decent, FGL's vocals aren't bad, but that acronym and the sexual innuendos are pointless. - NiktheWizV 3 Comments
This song is so bad I can't even find words to describe it. It really has to be seen to be believed. - Spark_Of_Life
The beat is pretty good, but he can't sing for his life. - RalphBob
If you want to make a defense for modern music, that's fine. Just please make a Decent point instead of saying "But I am the Man." That sounds like SonReal Masterbated in a Mirror while writing that line. - DarkSideOfRandy
I must have terrible taste in music because I love this songV 1 Comment
Wow, now he made a song about TIMMY TURNER? What has music come to? - Gamecubesarecool193
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 song is awesome. The gospel swell is intense, the high-pitched synth is somehow not irritating, and if you look into the lyrics you'll see that it's a complex story of Desiigner willing to own up to his own sins and admitting his own lostness. The verses don't make much sense until you merge it with the pitch-black chorus. This is something I never thought I'd hear from Desiigner. 5/5. - WonkeyDude98
Am I the only one who likes this? - AlphaQV 27 Comments
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_
