Top Ten Worst Songs of 2016

61 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

62 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

63 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

64 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

65 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.

No awqured course

66 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

67 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

What...is 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

68 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

69 Boomerang - Jojo Siwa

She's a talentless little maggot who only got famous because her mom got her a record deal. Jojo, you're a child, go to school instead of making America's eardrums bleed

She is alredy a better dancer than beyoncé, and will soon be a better singer to.

SCREW YOU ANGRY JOJO SIWA FANGIRLS! I WISH JACOB SARTORIUS WERE DEAD! >:(

70 White Iverson - Post Malone

This is the whiney idiots who can't sING. This song is boring, whiny, gneric and duchy in every way. 0/5 - AlphaQ

71 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

72 Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) - Silento

You know your song is bad when it's a contender in next year's worst list.

Guys! The Whip/Nae Nae is dead already! Stop worrying about it! (this is not a defense for this song. Also, it came out in 2015! ) - SelfDestruct

This song is horrible, but it came out in 2015. - Spark_Of_Life

This song is so dead it's not even funny.

74 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

75 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

76 Came Here to Forget - Blake Shelton V 1 Comment
77 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

78 Let Go - Johnny Orlando
79 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

80 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
