Top Ten Worst Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Vacation - Thomas Rhett

The song is just plain terrible

We've done it guys. A song so bad that it didn't even chart. - WonkeyDude98

62 Really Really - Kevin Gates

I guess I was right, this IS worse than 2 Phones. 0/5 - AlphaQ

This be making DJ Khaled say "Not another one! "

63 Go Flex - Post Malone

If you thought White Iversion was lazy and boring, this takes the worst of that song and what it could have been... and makes it even worse. This "ghetto dude" tries to make modern day Snoop Dogg look like he produced Illmatic and Ready to Die, and his flexing only makes it worse. At least Snoop attempts to sing in some of his songs, Post appears to be called to the studio at one in the morning to make them. - Swellow

It's bad enough when crappy rappers attempt to flex. When a guy who sings really lazily and does all he can to show his whiteness tries to flex, it becomes painful. Thought Iggy Azaelia was bad? This guy makes her look like Eminem in comparison. - Zach808

This song so lazy Bruno Mars is jealous (The Lazy Song my jam though)

This Is Wful, There's No Reason Why Anyone Should Like This, I Bet SelfDestruct Only Likes It Because It's A Flex Song And He Only Likes Flex Songs Because Of Rae Sremmturd - VideoGamefan5

64 Close - Nick Jonas

I really don't like this song. It's bland, colorless pop coming from a former Disney star. Is that not a path to window-smashing and head-shaving? Tove Lo is adiqutte, I suppose, but the finest part of her act are lyrics and production. No risks are taken, no new sounds are explored. The main theme in this radio-friendly trash heap is "I'm Nick Jonas, I'm so edgy! I have sex! ". And so it goes.

This song is just bland. It's pretty much lifeless and garbage. 1/5 - AlphaQ

I don't like either artist, but this song is not bad at all especially coming from a former Disney star.

Bad reviews are just a word made up by someone who's afraid to rate this! Good! It's so good! ooh ohh - MediocrePopTrash

65 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

66 2 Phones - Kevin Gates

This is one of the most forgettable songs I've ever heard. It's like some generic guy was given a cheat sheet on how to make a trap song. His voice and flow aren't anything special, and all he does is brag about the same crap as everyone else. No one is gonna remember who Kevin Gates is when this song drops off the charts. - Zach808 this. There's no joke or punchline, it's literally a guy talking about how he has two phones. Oh if only he wasn't playing it completely straight. Gates sounds like Flo Rida on weed, the beat is cold dark trap mush, and he has lyrics about how his phones make him "gorgeous" and make "other women feel unimportant". Since this isn't a joke, it isn't funny, and we're left with some really pathetic writing from a flash-in-the-pan nobody rapper who will fade in three months. To quote TDA, this is like a ghetto Sesame Street. Half-star/5. - WonkeyDude98

"My phone be making women feel they unimportant"
This lyric, alongside his constant bragging of how great his "two phones" are, only makes Kevin come out as an ass. Thankfully this song is that forgettable it's nothing in three months. - Swellow

Basically I douche who raps about how he has 2 Phones and some retard throws an iPhone 6 into the sea (I had an iPhone 5 that time. Be grateful for what you have! ).

His lyrics make him seen like the rich guy who thinks he's "important" and treats women "unimportantly". SCREW YOU NARCISSIST. Ughh...he also uses a crap ton of autotune in the chorus. YUCK. You disgust me. 1/5. - AlphaQ

67 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

This Mediocre Pop Trash makes me need to puke. - MediocrePopTrash

Why do we even need a parody? - AlphaQ

68 Make Me - Britney Spears

Do people still care about Britney Spears? The last time she had a hit by herself was the late 2000s, and her last hit "Pretty Girls with Iggy was one of the most annoying songs of the 2010s. She desperately needs to retire. - Swellow

Oops!...she did it again, and by that I mean make a bland pop song that sounds horribly cheesy, outdated and much worse than her early work.

Can Britney Spears retire already? This song is living proof of why no one remembers her.

Okay, but don't make me listen to this song. - MediocrePopTrash

69 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

This is not BETTER - MediocrePopTrash

70 Chill Bill - Rob $tone

I honestly had no problem with this song when I first listened to it. But then I realized how lackluster it was. The beat was very thin (only had the Kill Bill whistle sample, thin drums, and some of the thinnest bass ever heard in a song). Also, the first two rappers had some of the worst flows in rapping history. However, I will admit the third rapper had some great flow compare to the first two. Sadly, not even that could repair the damage done to this song. I am sorry, this is getting a 0/5 for me. - SelfDestruct

I'm a sucker for flutes. Kinda why I liked Broccoli too, except this is a little better. 3.5/5 - WonkeyDude98

Now I like this one quite a fair bit, mainly cause the sample... 4/5 - ProPanda

71 Pokemon Go Song - Misha

How come this was not there before? That kid was disgusting.

Get this at top 5 because it has over a million dislikes - Hellohi

Every day! I play pokemon GO! - MediocrePopTrash

72 Side to Side - Ariana Grande

This song is horrible and so is Ariana Garbage.

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.

Get this song to No1.

Lol I love this. 5/5 - AlphaQ

73 Fix - Chris Lane

This is easily the 2nd worst "country" song of the year, sitting right behind Thomas Rhett's Vacation. First off, the opening lyric which says "Hey girl" is enough to turn me off. Second, he compared himself to Walter White from Breaking Bad in the hook, and not to mention that there is the pathetic censorship, "good-ish." This song is basically the tired love-is-a-drug cliché.The production is grating and shreds every single bit of of country music in it (not that there was any to begin with). As for the vocal performance, it's terrible and makes Chris Lane seem just as unappealing as he seemed with the Walter White reference. - NiktheWiz

This is horrendous, NiktheWiz said it all.

But I'll give Chris this: he has charisma, at least. 1/5 - WonkeyDude98

74 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

75 Let Go - Johnny Orlando
76 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

77 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

Nobody did this joke yet? Ok... MAMA SAID KNOCK YOU OUT!

78 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
