61 Let Go - Johnny Orlando
62 Don't Let Me Down - The Chainsmokers

Right, I'm deleting my old comment to write a newer one, because my mind cannot be made up about this. While the verses have a good meaning and the guitar plunks in the background fit nicely, the drop polarizes me. It's the one thing that I cannot make my mind up about. It's a headbanger, but also a little bit repetitive. Eh, I'll leave it as a 3/5 for now, I'm starting to like it a bit more. But Closer, on the other hand... - JackMM

Honestly this is one of the few good pop songs of today

I like the verses, but the drop ruins this song. With a better drop, I would love this song much more.

Honestly this is fantastic. 5/5 - AlphaQ

63 All We Know - The Chainsmokers

Phoebe Ryan sounds like an eight year old. That coupled with a mediocre drop and an overall air of boredom that hangs around this means bye. - Spark_Of_Life

It sounds just like Closer

I can't be the only one who likes this, can I? - ProPanda

64 Panda - Desiigner

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. - Popsicles

65 Superlove - Tinashe

Tinashe - An artist who's not consistent. Her songs either are masterpieces or they suck hugley. - Spark_Of_Life

MeH Tolerable but not great. Lellypoop - AlphaQ

66 Mama Said - Lukas Graham

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

SHOOT THIS FEG. NOW. - AlphaQ

67 California Dreamin - Mattybraps
68 Snapchat - Soulja Boy

Does anyone actually give a crap about Soulja Boy anymore? I haven't even seen any of his singles charting since 2010 or so. - Zach808

I was looking at new rap music to find material for my list, and when I saw this I expected the worst. Soulja Boy failed even then. - WonkeyDude98

What even is this? Like, I've never heard of it but I can already tell from the title and "artist" (using that term lightly because Soulja Boy) it's either so-bad-it's-good or just crap. I'm not gonna listen to it to find out because at the end of the day, I don't care about Soulja Boy.

Soulja Boy needs to retire pretty much as desperately as Madonna. Since the first, every terrible single from this guy is worse than the previous. - thebloogerblogger

This exists? - 906389

69 Harambe - Young Thug

The instrumental is good but this guy need to drink some water before he raps like seriously his throat is dry as hell - Mcgillacuddy

This is a disgrace of a tribute. It's just thugger screeching - ProPanda

It was called Harambe as a clickbait song title...

Now I really feel bad for the ape. :(

70 Shaky Shaky - Daddy Yankee

This isn't Even Music - VideoGamefan5

Surprised this isn't on the list, this piece of crap is just plain inmature - VideoGamefan5

71 Better - Meghan Trainor

I went in with low expectations, and somehow I was even more let down than I expected to be. Why, Meghan? Just why? - Spark_Of_Life

This is like NO if it was hidden under a shade of saccharinity. Also, Yo Gotti's worst performance. -1/5 - WonkeyDude98

Garbage with an awkward guest verse from Yo Gotti. Like the music video though. 0/5 - ProPanda

Oh my goodness...this is Meghan's worst song. SCREW THIS. 0/5 - AlphaQ

72 L.A.N.C.E. - June's Diary
73 I Took a Pill In Ibiza - Mike Posner

If we're talking about the original, then this is accurate. But since the remix is in the sample, I assume you meant this, in which case no. - WonkeyDude98

I don't get this. The original version I'll agree and say it sucks, but the remix is awesome.

And this is why the Remix is way better.

The original version is garbage in any case but...the remix is awesome. - AlphaQ

74 Sweet Design - Sia

This song was intended to be sang by J.Lo (the same woman who brought us Booty), but some slip-up happened and this song went to the already terrible This is Acting album, which made it worse for me. Not only do the vocals of Sia make it unsuitable for her to sing a booty anthem, but when you have lyrics that reference the even worse Thong Song and Baby Got Back, that's when you've dropped low. - Swellow

Haven't heard it, but why is Sia of all people making a booty song?

Wait, Sia made a song about the rear end that came out the producer's rear end? Actually shocking

Why would Sia of all artists make a song about butts?! - 906389

75 Go 4 It - Corey Feldman

Is this supposed to be a joke? PLEASE TELL ME YES

Anything from Angelic 2 the Cote is garbage. - AlphaQ

76 Black Beatles - Rae Sremmurd

I haven't gotten to talk about this song in much detail as I wanted (even when I specifically reviewed it on RYM), so let's talk about this trash in detail, shall we? BECAUSE IT BLOWS.

I can appreciate Mike WiLL Made-It going for a darkwave vibe with the production, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. The glossy, misty synths keep on unresolving and resolving again in an uncomfortable limp, and any cool vibe we could get from the beat is quandered because the synths are so dissonant and far-removed that they have zero texture or vibrancy.

But it's the lyrics that really drive me over the edge. This is a song where Rae Sremmurd and Gucci Mane compare themselves to the Beatles.

Uh, excuse me?

Not only does this prove their inability to count (there were four Beatles and three of you, not counting Mike WiLL Made-It), it's also proof that they have no idea what they're talking about! It's completely insulting that bottom-of-the-barrel trap-rappers ...more - WonkeyDude98

They have the audacity to compare themselves, two of the worst ever people to stand behind a microphone, to the legendary fab four who made great music. Need I say more?

Barring the comparison that is unquestionably awful... I don't know, it's alright. The beat's your generic yet good cloud rap shtick, and the vocals aren't that insufferable. - Satire

They definitely aren't the next Beatles, but this is a very catchy song - Popsicles

77 That's My Girl - Fifth Harmony

While this is better than Work From Home or Not That Kinda Girl, it's still torturous, purely musically. The instrumentation is a mess. The horns are farty and they randomly interject into these awkward squeals. And then there's the chorus, another beast entirely. They harmonize, I can say that, but you clearly hear Camila over the rest, and that's a bad thing because the chorus is so loud and stuffed that it feels like it's closing in. -1/5 - WonkeyDude98

Ohh...my goodness. Someone stop 5th Harmony from making music. -1/5. This is worse than Work From Home. - AlphaQ

This has one of the most annoying hooks and instrumentation of all time

78 Tis a Pity She Was a Whore - David Bowie

Uh, no, the album was a great swan album that helps us reflect the greatness of Bowie and his early era. - Swellow

I'm pretty sure the person who put the album here was trolling. Their comments are nothing but vague flames with no grammar whatsoever. Downright disrespectful if you ask me. - Zach808

If you look past the offense to a dead man, the troll comments are amusing

Seven months and these troll comments still haven't vanished or stopped? Honestly, the joke was awful from the start and it's only become a rehash ever since (meanwhile BTDR and JBL made me laugh). Find something more time-consuming than this. - Swellow

Ok, the author of this list either
A:Wanted to make this list OHHH so controversial!
or B:just ran out of songs to put on the list

79 24k Magic - Bruno Mars

Stereotypical and boring. Go away, Bruno Mar. - Swellow

I liked Bruno Mars when he was doing songs like "Just The Way You Are" and "When I Was Your Man" but now that I've heard this, I'm almost embarrassed to even say I used to like him.

I can't believe this crap is from the guy who made "When I Was Your Man". What the heck happened? - Spark_Of_Life

Whoa. I like this song. Not even the cursing can make me hate it. 5/5 - AlphaQ

80 Black Barbies - Nicki Minaj

Nicki took everything wrong with the substandard Rae Sremmurd song, made it into a weird lesbian-spoof, and made it into something that proves how commercialism and cringe-worthy persona hides what she could be doing instead. - Swellow

Why do we even need a parody? - AlphaQ

Is this supposed to be a Rae Sremmurd parody? A female Weird Al she is not.

Sucks
