Top Ten Worst Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 9

161 Crazy in Love - Beyonce

What is a song from 2003 doing on a 2016 list? Unless someone got mixed up on the title of this or did this intentionally, then this song shouldn't even be here either. - Swellow

What? This is from more than 10 years ago, why is this on here? Decent song, but it is not from this year. This song is not even bad. - AnimeDrawer

I like how her only good song before 2016 is on here - ProPanda

What is happening - WonkeyDude98

162 Elastic Heart - Sia

Not only is it shameful that a 2015 song is on a 2016 list, it's a crime that a song with this much passion and energy put into it is anywhere near a "worst" list. - Spark_Of_Life

Seriously what is happening - WonkeyDude98

163 Minnesota - Lil Yachty
164 Cancer - Twenty One Pilots

What's the name? - Neonco31

I know that a lot of people like this song, and some of the lyrics are the definition of poignant.

However sorry, but I drives me insane how this guy can simply slip on someone else's shoes, and make a song about bring terminally ill, just for disposable income. Singing about such a serious topic just for money is purely insensitive, when you consider how people suffer with this disease. 0.5/5

For starters, the song wasn't even made by them. It's actually a cover of My Chemical Romance's song which came out 10 years prior. - Swellow

165 Goosebumps - Travis Scott

Hey, This Is Awesome! The Synth Line Is Perfect In Every Way. Travis Is Awesome And Kendrick Is Dope. 5/5 - AlphaQ

Huh? I like this...4.5/5 - AlphaQ

166 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.

167 I Will Survive - Demi Lovato

A cancerous cover of a classic song that had no business in being in a movie like that. - Spark_Of_Life

To be honest, I actually really like this cover of a Gloria Gayner original. It's really upbeat and empowering and it also shows Demi's vocal talent really well. - NiktheWiz

168 Company - Justin Bieber

This has shrunk on me big time. Still one of the better songs from Purpose. 4/5 - ProPanda

It's not that bad. This is easily one of his best. 5/5 - AlphaQ

This Was Actually JB's Least Awful Song, Ill Let Neonco31 Explain Why It isn't Too Bad, I Only Added This Here To See What Comments It Gets - VideoGamefan5

169 Shiny - Jemaine Clement

UGT, THIS Is Easily The Worst Song From Moana, This Is Just A Lazy Excuse For A Disney Villain Song - VideoGamefan5

170 Setting Fires - The Chainsmokers
171 Sue (Or In a Season of Crime) - David Bowie
172 Dollar Days - David Bowie

I bet none of you knew that Bowie was basically dying while he was making this, yeah sure, it's no Lazarus or Blackstar...but still, the man was dying

Hey at least Bowie does not use autotune

173 Saved - Ty Dolla $ign

Wow same beat as work from home - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

This and the album as a whole Ai t too bad. 2.5/5 - AlphaQ

It's nnot terrible... 2/5 - ProPanda

I despise DJ Mustard with every fiber of my being, but this song does have some saving graces. For one thing, the beat's faster and more upbeat than the typical DJ mustard beat (though it's still the same formula, so partial credit only). E-40 is a decent guest rapper with some energy in his flow. His verse here isn't as good as his verse on I Don't F With You, but it's not bad. As for Ty Dolla Sign, he's... forgettable. I wouldn't call this song good, but it definitely doesn't sink to the level of most DJ Mustard tracks. - Zach808

174 True Colors - Zedd

This song is an amazing cover. Not as good as the original, but Kesha sounds a lot better than she had previously. - Swellow

Whoever said Zedd sucks and Jacob Sartorius rules doesn't have a taste in good music. Zedd is actually one of the peeps of today who makes good music. - astroshark

Oh and he's probably a blatant troll. - astroshark as

We need less hags in the music industry like Kesha and Zedd and more stars who are cool and hip like Jacob Sartorious and Mark Thomas.

175 Fast Car - Jonas Blue

It wasn't until a live performance I knew that it was a girl singing - helloitsme

Jonas Blue Is A Talentless Hack. - AlphaQ

Nothing more than a rehash of Rather Be.

176 Some Type of Love - Charlie Puth

Puth's album is some type of GARBAGE. - Spark_Of_Life

Some Type of Garbage. 0/5 - AlphaQ

177 Make Me Like You - Gwen Stefani

Please go back to your No Doubt work. - Swellow

I want to like this, but something is just messed up here.

178 Money Longer - Lil Uzi Vert

I meant to talk about this absolute atrocity when it was overshadowed in bile by Sweatshirt last week, because this should have been the song to get all the hate that week. That awful synth line sounds like someone autotuned the death of a flock of geese with FL Studio effects, Lil Uzi Vert has one of the most instantly punchable and grating voices in rap since Young Thug, his flow and rhymes are phoned in and incredibly stilted, and he talks about his "haters getting sadder" and his "girl calling him daddy". THAT'S CREEPY. Yeah, -1/5, complete garbage. - WonkeyDude98

If only Lil Uzi Vert had a better voice, because he has quite a decent flow in this song. Overall 2/5. It sucked! - SelfDestruct

Ever since Young Thug, this fool here has the most ear-grating voice that's nothing but autotuned to death. He is incredibly phony and the synth line is autotuned to death. It sounds like someone autotuned a baby being sat on. Thsee are one of the whiniest and worst vocals I've ever heard. Also what the heck does he mean when he said something about his girl "calling him daddy"? Is he some sort of creep or something? Eww. -1/5 - AlphaQ

179 Controlla - Drake

Is it me or is that Pop Can using so much autotune you can barley hear what he's saying? - TommyBranca

This song is annoying. - madoog

This is a decent improvement...AIRHORN! 1.5/5 - AlphaQ

An airhorn... in a modern pop song?
I've lost more faith in music than Panda made me. - Swellow

180 Body Say - Demi Lovato

Another song glorifying sex / This song falls hard. - madoog

Amazing song! she sounds so confident on this record and it fits her style really well! 10/10

"Take me there 'cause I want your sex"

Demi... Stop. - TheEvilNuggetCookie
