121 Last Text - Jacob Sartorius

NO! I thought he faded away from 2016! Why is he still pumping out music?! He has a face of a baby and he's still making hits?! DESPITE THE LIKE/DISLIKE RATIO BEING OVERWHELMINGLY NEGATIVE?! Can we all agree that this guy is numb to criticism?

Another Jacob Sartorius song? Oh no... - AlphaQ

This should be higher - Neonco31

This song is about sexting.

122 Unsteady - X Ambassadors

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

123 Rockabye - Clean Bandit V 1 Comment
124 Sit Still, Look Pretty - Daya

I'm commenting cause I accidentally pressed vote. This is awful. 1.5/5 - AlphaQ

Just letting ya know I wanted my vote to git to Sahara - AlphaQ

You know if there is any career that I feel like analyzing, it's that of a breakout teen female artist, especially the 3 most popular ones: Zara Larsson, Alessia Cara, and Daya. All of them used to cover other people's songs whether it be on YouTube or talent shows, but have now progressed into something called creativity! Alessia influenced her sounds with R&B and electropop while still maintaining the sweetness, talent, and originality that gave her fans! She is my favorite out of the three, because she is the most original, and her songs are the most meaningful! Zara, who is my second favorite, escaped deep into the EDM realm, making dance-pop, and EDM hits, along with some tropical house (like in Lush Life), and the occasional piano ballad. But Daya is different. She has made nothing but simple electropop music, in the most generic way possible! Her songs all sound the same, and are extremely repetitive! This song sucks, and is a disgrace to feminism! It's cheesy, and repetitive! ...more

OHH
That song is incredible only because I'm a female
The problem is, it harass males, though
Thank you for making this a newcomer, not with a place
This song's very catchy
If you hate it, respect my opinion

125 Poisonous Shadows - Megadeth

What is this thrash epic doing here? It may be about a breakup, yet it has great orchestral backing, an awesome solo, an epic feel, and just those haunting, dying seconds leave you with chills.

126 Let Me Love You - Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande needs to shut the hell up. Nickelodeon drugged her up badly! There are at least 3 songs called "Let Me Love You", such as Mario's "Let Me Love You" or Justin Bieber's "Let Me Love You". Stop defending Ariana Grande for hating America, liking Justin Bieber and leaving her racist germs on doughnuts and making excuses out of it.

What could be so bad about this song? Ariana Grande's singing is amazing, the production is decent... Oh wait! Lil Wayne is in it to ruin what could have been a good song! 1/5. It went that bad because of Lil Wayne ALONE! - SelfDestruct

Between the shockingly mechanical production, the irritating chorus, and 2016 Lil Wayne's existence, it's no surprise that this is a 0/5. - WonkeyDude98

2 songs in a row called Let me Love You.

127 All in My Head (Flex) - Fifth Harmony

This song is bearable. However, I neither like it nor dislike it. I am neutral. - madoog

Wow how lazy they just repeat the first verse instead of singing a different second verse. Rihanna did this in kiss it better. Pop artists are so lazy. - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

Not as bad as work from home, but still horrible

Why isn't this in top 3

128 All My Friends - Jacob Sartorius

A cancerous rip-off of Cold Water and Let Me Love You. This poor kid just needs to retire already. - Spark_Of_Life

Am I the only one who thinks this song sound like Lean On?

I'm starting to think that he's just trying too hard to be hip with the kids. Your grades matter more, dude.

Does anyone else think that this song sounds like Everybody Wants To Rule The World by Tears For Fears? Does anyone else notice how strange it is that this annoying 13 year boy inadvertently rip off the melody to one of the most iconic synthpop songs of all time?

129 Ooouuu - Young M.A.

This song is an example that hip hop is dead.

They stole the "HYYAAH" from Panda by Desiigner

" 'You call her Stephanie? I call her HEAD-phanie! ' Boo. BOO! " - Rap Critic
Yeah, that about sums it up. - TidalJ

130 Deja Vu - Post Malone

If you've ever seen me comment on an anti-pop list, you'd think I like Justin Bieber. Well I don't, and song like THIS are the reason why. I mean, I already hated this song before I listened to it. 2016 Justin Bieber and diet 2016 Justin Bieber (Post Malone) is automatically a fail. But even with this horrendous combination, this is an ATROCITY, easily worse than White Iverson, maybe even worse than Go Flex.

Forget the fact that whatever vibes you could collect from this are swamped in reverb-y bass and thin trap percussion, and that both of these guys sound like they just woke up from a bad head cold, but the lyrics...man these guys are really trying to sell themselves as tools aren't they?

Forget the fact that Post Malone explicitly tells a girl who's leaving him to leave her...well...stuff at the door, and by that he means her underwear, and the way he phrases it automatically makes me think of brown stains, he says that he screws so many women that the one he's doing ...more - WonkeyDude98

Why the hell does this guy have a career again?

Well, Wonkey summed this up better than I could so, I'm just gonna leave with a a -1/5 - ProPanda

Man screw this garbage. This song is your average high song and bullsheet. Wonkey summed this better than I could but I would like to add some stuff.

HOW THE PHUCK IS IT RELATED TO DEJA VU STUPID TOAST MALONE. Screw you. Toast Malone. I mean Post Malone because I keep calling him Post Malone.

So I first heard about this douche when ProPanda PMed me and said he's his least favorite rapper and I wanted to check him out. I heard White Iverson before he told me and didn't like it. He says Deja Vu is much worse. I took one listen. BIG MISTAKE. I nearly fainted and collapsed when someone started playing Starboy which made me get better and shoot the radio that was playing phucking Deja Vu with a Nerf Gun.

So this summed up how crap this song is. Easily one of the worst. -500/5 - AlphaQ

131 Unforgettable - Sia

I just don't like her on this song. Some songs can only be sung by the original artists. Nat Cole owns this song. Natalie did okay with Nat but that's where it should stay is with the Coles singing it. Sorry Sia, I really dig her music just not her version of this song. Not at all

This song isn't even that bad, but it's pretty telling that I completely forgot about this song after watching Finding Dory. - WonkeyDude98

"emotional powerhouse " Are you sure about that?

I Like This... - VideoGamefan5

132 Banshee - Santigold
133 Sorry - Beyonce

The chorus is where she goes Superman 64! It sounds like she is just restarting herself every time when repeating "I Ain't Sorry" very similar to when Superman repeats "Then There's No Time To Waste" when he restarts. Granted I have heard other music artists go Superman 64 in the chorus but at least they all sounded more interesting than her! Also, nothing about this works well, matter of fact they all serve to backfire and make this sound more god awful than it should! So yeah, no excuses, Beyonce will always get herself a -1/5 or lower. - SelfDestruct

I honestly like this one. Don't judge. - Powerfulgirl10

Creepy as hell

This song literally sounds gross. The production sounds like it was recorded in the depths of hell and Beyoncé sounds downright obnoxious and self-aggrandizing.

134 This Girl - Kungs vs Cookin' on 3 Burners

This song is amazing. - WonkeyDude98

Why is this here? Love it so much

Annoying, terrible and it spoils what's behind the beat drop in the build-up

Worst song after gold

135 Let Me Love You - DJ Snake

DJ Snake needs to stop relying on Egyptian style riffs and try something else. Justin Bieber also puts in an uninspired performance too, thus making this a 0/5. I hope it doesn't reach #1 in Australia (it's #2 right now) and starts sliding down soon. - JackMM

Is this gonna be the last time a song is called Let Me Love You? This song could not be called something else? This song is somewhat bland and has this unlikable aura. I do not like Let Me Love You. This song fails. - madoog

DEAR LORD! Not even 10 seconds of this song will have you hitting your radio with an axe! The trashy voice of Bieber with his usual sex whine is enough to give you a HEADACHE

Ugh. I hate this overplayed overrated pile of trash. Bieber screeches and sounds like a dying donkey, DJ Snake sucks, SCREW this Lean On ripoff.

136 I Don't Like to Think - Riff Raff

The very worst song on Peach Panther. I mean, this is genuinely terrifying. It sounds like something out of the Shining. Small stuff first: Riff Raff says that he goes into women's bathroom stalls, and he has Problem handle one of the, if not, the worst chorus of the entire year. We know that you both don't like to think, WE CAN TELL.

But again, the production on this...I mean, you have a two-person choir from your nightmares in this, and one of the weediest trap snares of the whole year, but then you have this broken music box rattling through the whole thing and it's just...can I leave? Like, I feel threatened by this...-1/5 - WonkeyDude98

137 Fade - Kanye West

This song... I'm not even sure what to call it. The beat is somewhat catchy, the lyrics have a distinct vibe to them, but the song itself was messed up beyond belief. It legitimately sounds like a 5 year old attempted to make a YTP, then getting bored after 10 minutes and completely reordering everything and mashing things up. The "I Feel It" sample is life support for the song, and it just screwed everything up. If it qualifies as a song, then it's quite bad (I guess), but for some reason, whether it be that everyone else loves it or that I burst out laughing every time I hear this, I can't get myself to hate it, or even take it seriously.

Plus, Teyana Taylor isn't that impressive to me.

I knew this song would be in the list sooner or later. Screw you whoever put it in. This song is hotness - Mcgillacuddy

What? This one rocks! THe sample, the weirdness, and the clever lyrics. 5/5 - ProPanda

This song rocks. I don't even know what to say. 5/5

138 Bad & Boujee - Migos

Can someone just castrate Lil Uzi Vert already? - WonkeyDude98

Wow…the 1975 they ain't.

Desiigner? Future? LIL UZI VERT?!?! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?!?! - AlphaQ

Lil Uzi Vert has got to be one of the worst rappers of all time. At the beginning of his verse he says "YAH YAH YAH YAH YAH" In the most ATROCIOUS VOICE I've EVER HEARD. CAN LIL UZI VERT JUST QUIT. HE STINKS. Migos does a bad job too. This song is just garbage.

I heard this in 2017 and since I'm usually late I check 2016 first.

This crap just getting a -3/5 - AlphaQ

139 Caroline - Amine V 3 Comments
140 Party - Chris Brown

You know what? I'm gonna say it. As someone who has somehow found 19 Chris Brown songs worse than Loyal (my 3rd worst hit song of 2014) and have only listened to one of his albums in full thus far, this rests in his bottom 15. Everything about this is awful. The synths barely peak out of the background, and when they do, they're dull, cheap, and disgusting-sounding behind this bargain-barrel beat. Chris Brown sounds particularly awful and Gucci Mane...exists, but USHER? Why? His presence here should deem this to mediocrity, but he's somehow worse than either of the cretins he's working with.

If I wasn't so fixated on making sure Me Too is as high as possible, this would be #4 on my worst list. -3/5. Somehow, we're still giving Chris Brown a career. - WonkeyDude98

I see chris brown is still terrible - kardinaleb
