Top Ten Worst Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Sweet Design - Sia 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

This song sounds so stupid - ProPanda

82 That's My Girl - Fifth Harmony 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

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

This is worse than Work From Home
-1/5 - AlphaQ

83 Dystopia - Megadeth

It's not even 2016 yet. And why is there so much Megadeth on this list?

You do realize Ark-M made this list originally (alongside the Best Songs of 2016 list) by adding the entirety of the new Megadeth album on both lists as an example? He's not attacking the band, god. - Swellow

Who is putting Megadeth in this list?

We need to talk about Ark-M putting Megadeth in a WORST songs list, when Megadeth has the better songs of 2016.

85 The Greatest - Sia The Greatest - Sia

Hate this song with a passion. Sia's worst musical piece yet, in fact, this should be in the top 10. When you hear her sing, it is like she overdosed on cocaine singing this song. I listened to this song and I regret it because it made me feel uncomfortable for some reason (probably the poorly made repetitive beat and lyrics). Ultimately, this song is a piece of crap.

Most of her songs are really rude. I mean look at chandelier! It's about drinking! THIS IS NOT FOR KIDS! But the greatest is pretty good.

I used to like this, then it soured on me hard. I mean, this is everything you could expect a collab like this to be in 2016. Generic production, generic trap snares, generic lyrics to a cause that deserved better, almost completely nonpresent performance, and a generic and disappointing guest verse from Kendrick Lamar. 2/5 - WonkeyDude98

I mean I liked his 2015 album and we get this crappy verse in return? Someone tickle me now... - AlphaQ

86 24k Magic - Bruno Mars 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

87 I Took a Pill In Ibiza - Mike Posner 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.

I took a pill to stop vomitting after listening to this crap - Samurai2k17

88 I Hate U, I Love U - Gnash I Hate U, I Love U - Gnash

The song is so boring. The incredibly simple and repetitive piano chords and Gnash's dull vocals make it sound more like a lullaby and less like a legitimate R&B song. I tried to analyze the lyrics while listening to it, but I fell asleep before it ended. He failed at making a sad song, because the only feeling I was getting was anger over the song not ending quick enough. 3/10, I'm not feeling it at all. - yaygiants16

This is atrocious. Gnash sounds like a whiny teenager and he says the f bomb way more times than he needs to - Spark_Of_Life

Say Something Part 2. In every way. 4.5/5 - WonkeyDude98

I actually like this song though. 4/5 cause gnash is kinda dull no offense - AlphaQ

Who thought it was good idea to scare away Mackelmore? You are letting these idiots take over the pop charts! HOW COULD YOU!?!

89 Tis a Pity She Was a Whore - David Bowie 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

No the person who added this just wanted to put it on because the song is terrible

91 Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) - Silento 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 isn't of 2016 though.. Is it? - LemonComputer

92 Lying In State - Megadeth

Tell me what this ultra-heavy track is doing here! Very great lyrics about the decline of Western civilization, awesome solos, and the drums, so much energy.

93 Bullet To The Brain - Megadeth

Why is this so high on the list? This song is so awesome!

94 No Money - Galantis No Money - Galantis

Pitch shifting + Incredibly bland electronic beat + Awful singing = Galantis. - Swellow

A song that may seem to be written and sung by a 4 year old girl, a steeple of a drugged up disco in the 70's... only in 2016

This song is just as bad as KidzBop and I'll admit it catchy but I don't even want to listen to it anymore cause it's trash. Ripoff of Meghan Trainor but actually is bad. Honestly hope this doesn't hit #1. I don't know if this is gonna be as bad as Friday. But horrible work. 1/5 - AlphaQ

My dog could sing this 1000000 times better than stupid Galantis. And the video is flippin messed up.

95 Harambe - Young Thug 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

Young Thug said each track on his mixtape "Jeffery" was named after one of his idols. Tell me this Thugger, how is a gorilla that was shot for endangering a kids life an idol of yours?

96 In the Name of Love - Martin Garrix In the Name of Love - Martin Garrix

The only thing that makes me want to puke more than Bebe's performance is that cancerous drop... - Spark_Of_Life

This is the worst song I have ever heard. It gives me a headache every time I hear it.

Yeah, I agree. The song is okay, but that awful drop is bound to give people migraines. It's that bad.

This whole list is garbage, there a whole wad of amazing songs on this list, and this is one of them, love it so much

97 PG Song for Kids (I Play PG Everyday) - Mishovy Silenosti PG Song for Kids (I Play PG Everyday) - Mishovy Silenosti

His teeth is like about the size of Great Wall of China

This song just hammers in the fact for me that kids these days only like Pokemon for the app, and not the original classics.

What does this kid floss his teeth with? A mattress?

All I could say is that this song is sooo overrated, that people even sing it at my bus and school.

98 Ain't My Fault - Zara Larsson Ain't My Fault - Zara Larsson

Two words: Tremendous letdown. She makes two amazing songs, Never Forget You and Lush Life, and she follows those up with THIS? Please get on the right track, Zara. - Spark_Of_Life

Not sure if this is good or not. I mean, Zara's amazing as usual, and besides the drop, the production is solid. But, the lyrics... This is a song where Zara tries to be that good pretty girl who stople your guy by accident and should be innocent. 2/5 - ProPanda

Yet another piece of crap from a singer who is only famous for being beautiful.

I agree that some of these songs on this list are terrible, but I mean come on, this song is amazing

99 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

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

THIS EXISTS. -5/5, just as bad if not worse than the original.

2016 if officially the worst year in pop music history. - WonkeyDude98

100 Ride - Twenty One Pilots Ride - Twenty One Pilots

I actually really like this song. The reggae touches provide a nice transition from the pre-chorus into the chorus, as well as that bass heavy drum beat being very fun to play. All in all, it is an 8/10.

I expect a fan coming here saying " why is this song on the list? How dare you! Twenty One Pilots are the best. They don't know the real meaning of this masterpiece." Except, this song is not even a masterpiece. This song has some flaws such as that awful falsetto that makes my ears hurt but overall its an ok song. 7.2/10
