The Contenders: Page 5

81 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

82 California Dreamin - Mattybraps
83 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. :(

84 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

85 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

86 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

87 L.A.N.C.E. - June's Diary
88 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

89 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

90 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

Two years for a song about partying. Dammit, I'm done with Bruno. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

91 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! "

92 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

This song is so boring now. I feel that I've listened to it 23/7. - AlphaQ

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

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

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

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

Pokemon GO is built on chance and luck. Pokemon was built on immersion and friendship.

Get to the right game, sabretooth.

94 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.

95 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.

96 Bullet To The Brain - Megadeth

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

97 No Money - Galantis

AA! That's my reaction on the song. And Galantis is easily the worst band ever. This was worse than Baby and Friday, sounded like an unborn baby sang it, and the lyrics are even worse than in "Closer". What sense do they make? The music video is stupid, and who would even care about this crappy song? I easily hope Galantis will crack up and say: OUR MUSIC IS TERRIBLE! WE SHOULD STOP SINGING! WE'RE WORSE THAN JUSTIN BIEBER! I REALLY WISH WE RELEASED THAT BEFORE! That's how I hate them and this song. And their other stuff like Runaway is also creepy. Put this at #1, it's a horribly terrible song. Worse than anything else.

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

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

98 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

This song sucks unbelievably. These guys are white trash, and if we're selectively talking 2016 songs, this should easily be in the top five. I question the musical tastes of anyone that like this. - Psi

Who even likes this junk?

99 Can't Stop the Feeling - Justin Timberlake

Mediocre. I don't hate it, but it is insanely forgettable. Overplayed to death as well. - Spark_Of_Life

One thing I forgot to mention in my triplet review including this, is that this is one of the few songs I've ever heard that structured wrong. A lot of pop songs follow the 1564 chord progression, because it fluidly leads onto a wide variety of pleasing melodies. This song, on the other hand, uses a 1646 progression, which means the song is completely stationery, and can't do anything with itself without a complete mid-song reconstruction. It actually explains why this song is so bland and energyless. - WonkeyDude98

Even then, it could have worked. Happy worked, mainly because it had color and harmony. This is so dull and lifeless. - WonkeyDude98

Not horrible, but so incredibly bland and generic. It sounds like a cheap ripoff of Happy, except that song worked and was fun. This song just sounds forced and fake.

At least its not about money, girls and weed - Th3Zm0nst3r

100 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
