Top Ten Worst Songs of 2016Ark-M
The Contenders: Page 2
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
IT'S GOOD! I wonder why people don't like this. I mean, you don't have to like it...OK ALL I'M TRYING TO SAY IS THAT I LIKE THIS SONG! I also love my favorite rapper and the amazing G EAZY. - MediocrePopTrashV 30 Comments
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.
The lyrics suck. It uses too much autotune. I can't wait until this song reaches 1 million dislikes on YouTube, just like Sweatshirt. I sadly ran out of bleach, time to head to Dollar Tree. - Catacorn
I get he's 13 and all but he needs to get off the internet and go to school.
I hate Sweatshirt and don't care cent though we're the same age. 1.5/5. Better than Sweatshirt. - AlphaQ
Well I can tell this is a miss. - MediocrePopTrashV 48 Comments
It wouldn't be a Beyonce album without the worst song on it becoming the hit, of course. This song's a mess, both musically and lyrically. The lyrics have already been discussed here, but... Oh god, that instrumentation is terrible. It sounds like a bunch of random trap noises being thrown together without any sort of cohesion or taste. If this becomes the only hit off the album, I'm going to be pissed, because the rest of the album is actually really good. - Zach808
I've come to re-listen to the song and it's only gotten worse.
Like Zach said, the production is HORRIBLE. As in, possibly the worst production I've heard on any song this year. The echoey vocal sample carries the entire track and sounds like a stoner jumping around like a fool, the boinging chintzy melody sounds like a glitched out N64, the trap percussion is so bland that it's barely there, the horns have no place in the mix, the bass sounds like it wants to kill me, and the processed synth line reminds me of the worst parts of Rae Sremmurd's My X. It's an absolute mess that makes the song an active chore to listen to.
Of course, the lyrics are pretty horrible, as Cookie said. They range from her haters and their belief that she is Illuminati, taking her boy to Red Lobster, and slaying. The skits added in there for the first half the song are also kriffing annoying, and only add to how insufferable the song's writing is.
This is musical Chinese water torture, ...more - WonkeyDude98
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

Chris Brown, making a song called Back to Sleep, where he says "f you back to sleep", with his daughter on the front cover. I think that Chris Brown is now only popular so people can see how miserably he constantly fails. - WonkeyDude98
I'm going back to sleep until something actually good to listen to is made... - MeaganSaysHI
Chris Brown keeps getting worse and worse. This song might be worse than Love Me by Lil Wayne. - RalphBob
Nope. Bit Chris Brown As A Whole Is Worse Than Lil Wayne As A Whole. - AlphaQ
In my house we don't say "disgusting rat," we say "Chris brown."
"Chris brown" means "disgusting rat."
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
David Guetta is the definiton of autotune abuse. - PopsiclesV 6 Comments
This song, while one of my least favorites from LEMONADE, is still amazing. - WonkeyDude98
This song is pretty good. I was neutral, but now, I like this song. - madoog
I love Lemonade but this is probably my 2nd least favorite (after Forward). It's still a good song though. Not really worthy of the top 20.
Stop copying Halsey's album cover! Also, I don't like this song. - MediocrePopTrashV 11 Comments
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.
It's beautiful! - MediocrePopTrashV 10 Comments
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
Luckily today in 2017 no one cares about this but in summer 2016 it was the most over-rated garbage out there (at one point in July of last year it was on 3 stations at once! ). This sounds like just another bland pop song while the "chorus" is another beast. You just listen to 5 seconds of that so-called chorus, and you're like WHAT ON EARTH WAS SHE SAYING?! I liked this song at one point but it shrunk on me pretty hard. - allamassal
This song is cool, produced by Felix Snow. - Elijah_CookV 37 Comments
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
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 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_
I love the beat and the background guy, but I can't understand a word he says. It's not rapping, it's mumbling. - PopsiclesV 40 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
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
The title itself reminds me of something sexual. - Powerfulgirl10
Rich Chigga? More like...Bitch Njgga! - AlphaQV 2 Comments
OH MY GOSH THAT VOICE. IT'S ANNOYING THE LIVING CRAP OUT OF ME.
Just look at that cover and the title! - Neonco31
Terrible. Just look at that title, cover, and band name! - allamassal
UM, gross. - MediocrePopTrashV 4 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
Well, you have no witnesses that this song is good - MediocrePopTrashV 2 Comments
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
I hope Butch Hartman will never ever recommend that song and may sue this piece of terrible music for being unoriginal and lack of quality. What's next Spongebob? Jimmy Neutron? Rocko? Any cartoon character?V 28 Comments
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
Please crappers! We don't need any of your stupid music and sexist lyrics and we wish your cars would crash and mansions be demolished. - HellohiV 11 Comments
Drake has been getting worse and yet his album is #1 :/
Awful, I can't stand people who constantly praise everything Drake does, and Drake can say whatever he wants and people are gonna praise it just because it's by him. Man I hate this generation
One Dance is better than Pop Style. They were released the same day. - madoog
Take One Dance and barf all over it while make it super corny. Congratulations, you have this! -1/5 - AlphaQV 5 Comments
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
This was my favourite song how can someone hate this one? I mean come on!?
Ok, this is just a magical fairytale. Well, actually this is a song. - MediocrePopTrashV 7 Comments
