61 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

Who gives a $#! + about Soulja Boy anymore?!?!

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Oops!...she did it again, and by that I mean make a bland pop song that sounds horribly cheesy, outdated and much worse than her early work.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

Great song but awful music video. - guitar

63 Set the Roof - Rae Sremmurd Set the Roof - Rae Sremmurd

This is actually one of the more tolerable Rae Sremmurd songs but it's still terrible... - Moorefamval

Calling Swae Lee a "bad singer" is too much of an understatement. - Swellow

Other than the BRILLIANT MASTERPIECE Black Beatles and the ATROCIOUSLY GARBAGE Over Here we have this other ATROCIOUS GARBAGE. Like I said Over Here is the worst song on SremmLife 2. This is the 2nd worst. GaH -3/5. Screw SremmLife 2. - AlphaQ

64 Down in the DM - Yo Gotti Down in the DM - Yo Gotti
65 Unsteady - X Ambassadors Unsteady - X Ambassadors

Listening to Unsteady makes me feel a little unsteady. 3/10. - NiktheWiz

66 Black Beatles - Rae Sremmurd 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

This song is actually pretty good compared to every hit song in 2014 and 2015. This has to be easily by far the best Rae Sremmurd song ever. 5/5. That makes SremmLife 2 a better album than talentless SremmLife - AlphaQ

67 Broccoli - D.R.A.M. Broccoli - D.R.A.M.

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 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

This so called "song" #6 on Billboard. I mean, how? This song is awful.

No one likes songs about @ss. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

68 Go 4 It - Corey Feldman Go 4 It - Corey Feldman
69 Side to Side - Ariana Grande 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.

YUCK, But Ariana Grande Wants To Chew With Nicki Minaj? , UGH, Phuck Off Ariana - VideoGamefan5

70 By Chance - Rae Sremmurd

This is absolutely terrible, so by Rae Sremmurd standards, highly above average. - WonkeyDude98

This song is annoying. How he repeatedly says "by chance" and the annoying instrumental - madoog

Major disappointment but yeah, I heard worse. - SelfDestruct

71 Frankie Sinatra - The Avalanches Frankie Sinatra - The Avalanches

This song is awful. Now, the sampling and instrumental is fine, but what does it have to do with Frankie Sinatra in even the most abstract sense? Nothing. Also, there is no chemistry whatsoever between between Danny Brown (who butchers most of his lyrics) and MF Doom (who sounds like he's been in hiding for several years and for a good reason). Really, I've grown to hate MF Doom and his elusive, phantom styles. Initially, I had high hopes for this song as the lead single from the Avalances album. But, it was doomed from its conception, pun intended because it was MF Doomed. You have an incoherent Danny Brown, some really atrocious lyrics (Frankie Sinatra was mentioned 11 times - none of which has anything to do with him) and 4 minutes of stretched music and verbiage that would make any rational mind wonder what the F they just heard. One of the worst songs ever by the Avalanches.

72 Friends with Benefits - KSI & MNDM Friends with Benefits - KSI & MNDM

You guys think that Panda's lazy? At least it had a little bit of variety. The first and second halves of this song are literally the same. - SwagFlicks

Let me elaborate. The instrumental, while better than most party beats today, still sounds extremely tired and unoriginal. And it's painfully obvious at the watered-down drop. KSI and MNDM (sorry, &) sound extremely uninspired (especially at the second verse and chorus) and sound like they did their contributions in one take. And the emphasis on the B in the final two bars of the chorus gets really old really fast. Oh, and I mentioned this before, but both halves of the song are the same.

At the very least, Panda had energy. It had variety. This has none of that. - SwagFlicks

73 Famous - Kanye West

Hey, remember that feud between Kanye West and Taylor Swift from 2009? Well, apparently it's still going on. - Zach808

You did not make Taylor famous Kanye, she kept you relevant. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

Kanye had receipts this whole time. Taylor may be suing him, but her reputation has received a major fallback. She deserves it anyways. How the hell did her album win a Grammy over Kendrick? Famous is not that bad but the music video is just... pornography. Bad pornography. - Mcgillacuddy

Disgusting rotting trash should never have existed

74 Superlove - Tinashe Superlove - Tinashe

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

75 All We Know - The Chainsmokers 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

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

76 Obama - Anohni Obama - Anohni

Do I have to explain? No, I don't. Anohni's constant murmuring in a deep but hilariously bad voice trying too hard to bring back her male voice just makes the beat, which consists of fuzzy noises and nothing that spruces it up, horrific. Not only that, the way she brings out the lyrics makes me wonder what happened in her studio. - Swellow

I don't necessarily hate Obama, but there's actually a song about him? Especially one that's considered terrible? I don't know if the song is praising or criticizing Obama, but either way, it's just too cringe-worthy for me to even think about researching what it's about. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I hated Anohni's ironically titled album Hopelessness, and this just took the unbearableness to an unthought of level. Their vocals are this grating throaty warble that sounds awful, and the fuzz-saturated beat isn't helping. I shouldn't even have to explain the lyrics. 0/5 - WonkeyDude98

Is this some kind of Illuminati Ritual?

77 L.A.N.C.E. - June's Diary L.A.N.C.E. - June's Diary
78 Look Alive - Rae Sremmurd Look Alive - Rae Sremmurd

The sad fact is that this is probably better than both Over Here and By Chance. Swae Lee actually sounds like he hit puberty, Slim Jxmmi's enough of a nonpresence to hide is awfulness, and the lyrics are both not aggravating enough and not understandable enough to get worked up over. Still, all this falls apart because of Mike WiLL Made-It. Similarly with No Type, the bass swamps out the entire song, the percussion is sparse, and the synth is oddly traily. Even this could have been justified with stronger treble and a faster tempo but as it stands, it's a 1.5/5. - WonkeyDude98

I actually have come to tolerate this. The beat is basically nothing, so it can;t really harm the song, and the vocals are OK. The lyrics are somewhat decent, and so a say a 2.7/5 - ProPanda

79 Toothbrush - DNCE Toothbrush - DNCE

I guess I could go on all day about this song, but it's from 2015, technically. - Swellow

The lyrics though... makes me cringe

The lyrics are horrible as hell. - Catacorn

Look! a song about sex by the less talented of the Jonas brothers, and his mates that nobody knows the name of, sounds like a recipe for success? No.

80 T-Shirt - Thomas Rhett T-Shirt - Thomas Rhett

I'm surprised this abomination found its way onto the list, but I don't care right now. All that matters is that it's a shameful, gutless piece of garbage from a talentless hack who doesn't deserve to be called a "country" singer. - WonkeyDude98

The inspiration of Sweatshirt

I would say I'm surprised this song is horrible but this is Thomas Rhett we're talking about. The only thing I'd be surprised at is if he put out a song that didn't end up on my year end worst list. It'd be a miracle.

It came out before Sweatshirt, and it managed to be worse. - Swellow
