Worst Songs of 2017

The Top Ten

1 It's Everyday Bro - Jake Paul

Got educated by tessa brooks, and she ain't talking book, but thought england was a city, so failed my test of geography

Sounds just like every other new wave rap song. I'm rich, I got girls, I got a nice house, check out my dance. Accompanied with dumb lyrics like, "England is my city." Thanks for scrapping Vine, now we ended up with this crap. - naFrovivuS

It's a song that you hear the first verse and you think it can't get any worse but boy are you wrong. There is a Johnny Bravo appearance though. The lyrics are hilariously bad. You could write a book about everything wrong with this song.

FINALLY! Jake Paul actually made his way on a list. He honestly deserves the hate he's getting. Anti-Jake Paulers lol...

2 Drinkin' Too Much - Sam Hunt

Boring as hell, closer to Drake than country music, and some pretty bad lyrics. If the girl in the song than Sam mentioned, wanted privacy, then why the hell does Sam say this personal stuff in the song about her? The more music Sam puts out, the more I hate him...

Take Trumpet Lights, Birthday by Selena Gomez and Heavy by Stinking Button and combine these 3. You get this, screw you Sam and screw damn country music. -100/5 - AlphaQ

Instrumentation is alright, nice feel to it, and Sam posses a lot of sincerity and desperation in his vocals. Unfortunately, none of this is shown in the lyrics, which can be heard clearly through the "rapping". 1.5/5 - ProPanda

Come On He's Worse Than Jake Paul. - AlphaQ

3 Bon Appetit - Katy Perry

Yet again, katy tries to be "sexy" but again it comes off corny and lame. I thought we had enough of these kind of songs, using food as sexual innuendos, R. Kelly did it, rihanna did it, Chris Brown, Trey Songz, and even katy herself with birthday. These songs are more disturbing than sexy and need to stop. Food does not sound sexy at all. Katy perry needs to stop making music already, she has always sucked. - DaWyteNight

Hey look, Katy Perry just recycled her song, Birthday, from the Prism era, except this time, Katy is relying on another guest rapper. It's also hypocritical of her to release Chained to the Rhythm while releasing this mindless garbage two months later. - NiktheWiz

I don't think a sex song is automatically bad but this one is so wrong on so many levels: the collaboration was bad, the base and Katy's voice were flat, forgettable, boring. Worst Katy song by far. 0/5 - DaisyandRosalina

I wanted to like this because Migos were in it, but I just couldn't.

4 Body Like a Back Road - Sam Hunt

If someone compared my body to a filthy road that's falling apart from neglect, I'd feel downright insulted. This guy's gonna get kicked in the nuts HARD when his girlfriend finds out about this. - Zach808

Update: He and his (then ex) now fiancee are now reconciled, engaged and very happy together while I am single and lonely in 9th grade. - ProPanda

I honestly don't care enough about this song to be angry about it. It truly is one of the worst songs of the decade, but it's so bland and cliche there's no point in giving it attention. That will only cause it to become more popular. - Spark_Of_Life

If a man compared my body to a back road, they would ensure the swift end to the relationship. The song is poorly written and quite honestly I am glad probably won't be a hit in Australia - crowdiegal

After a chart run that was WAY too long, I can confirm the nightmare is over, "Body Like a Back Road" exited the ARIA singles chart top 50 this week after peaking at number 9. Australia, next time you decide you want to give country music a run on the charts, I can happily direct you all where to find better country music than this. - crowdiegal

This is the music version of death - Scr3aM

5 Look What You Made Me Do - Taylor Swift

2017 was a year full of bad songs that I did not enjoy in the slightest. I was also not excited to see that this woman dropped a new song this year. It honestly exceeded my expectations for how bad it is. This song sounds so much like "Me Too" by Meghan Trainor and yet this song is so bad in everything that it gives "Me Too" a good rep and that is not only my most hated song of 2016, but one of my most hated songs of all time. Also, the lyrics are some of the worst I have ever heard in my life. Taylor disses and gives a middle finger to anyone who "broke" her and says that her reputation is destroyed and it is all our faults. Taylor, just stop. Sure, Kim Kardashian might have leaked that phone call, and Kanye and Katy Perry might have done a lot to you, but it was yourself and everything you have said and done over the years that has given you a bad rep. There is a reason why "Reputation" despite it being #1 on Billboard, it has not done as well as "1989". On top of her feuds with ...more

Where do I even begin? I miss songs like Bad Blood, You Belong With Me, and Love Story. Everything was fine with Taylor Swift up until reputation when she started to rap for some reason. In the end, this song sounds like she's trying to rap, but can't so she screams the chorus in an "edgy" manner. The chorus is carp, she sounds like a wannabe edgy gangster. The only good part of the song is the pre chorus where she actually SINGS and does not sound like a wannabe edgy gangster. And this song is SOMEHOW going to stay at #1 for WEEKS, while keeping good songs like Havana and There's Nothing Holding Me Back away from the top spot. Another Taylor Swift rap song, "Ready For It? " is #1 on iTunes and looks like it's gonna be another top spot hogger!

I still hate Shake It Off with EVERY fiber of my being, and while this has better production (at least not factoring the hook), the lyrics are a lot worse, especially when she targets her country (or old Taylor, in her words) fans in the bridge. If this is what the Reputation album will sound like, then that's going to be a REALLY bad sign. - NiktheWiz

At first I thought this song was good. Now I think it is garbage. The only good thing about it is the background music which only appears a few times throughout the song. - allamassal

6 Bingo - Jacob Sartorius

I didn't want to say anything awful. He was a victim of bullying and saying anything harsh would be awful, but you should never use sympathy to make yourself "likeable". Sympathy is a like a bandage, but the scars that we got from his music are like bullet wounds! This song sucks, and so has his other songs in the past, present, and future. If you're ever going to be more likable, Jacob, then stop doing this. You are only going to get more hate doing this career. Pretty soon, you will end up like Justin Bieber. And NO ONE, I mean NO ONE, wants to be like Justin Bieber. So, please. Give us mercy from our ears. Stop. NOW.

Jacob, just stop. You'll get more hate and harassment if you continue. If you continue, you'll end up like Justin Bieber. You DEFINITELY don't want that to happen. Also, you should wait until you're in your 20s to actually start your music career.

There is part of the song where he says "Wiggle, Wiggle". What is wrong with him? He want's a girl to twerk for him? This is utterly disgusting. -100/5.

it sucks

7 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran

I am okay with Ed Sheeran making generic love songs that are harmless. What I am not okay with is him making disgusting songs like this! Ed Sheeran never struck me as a good artist, but he was passable. However, this is a new low for him! -2/5! - SelfDestruct

Why does this song sound so incomplete!? His singing is good, but this song feels like it came from the backwash of the awful year known as 2016! If this song has more instruments, then it would be better. But this is just disappointing.

Here's something interesting about this. He was actually supposed to give this song to Rihanna - Hater

Glad he didn't, this song is way too generic compared to her last hit Love On The Brain. - DaisyandRosalina

Make it stop!

8 Tunnel Vision - Kodak Black

He sounds like a Jamaican muppet and the lyrics are boring as hell, like the one's you'd find in any song that's only popular form streaming. This is the "Panda" of 2017 and from the way things are going, it's probably heading straight for #1. Other than the admittedly good flutes that hide behind the generic trap beats, this gets a 1/10. - Spark_Of_Life

I don't understand why so many people hate this song. Sure the guy doesn't have the best voice on the planet, but the beat is really decent. That's all I wanted to say! - LoveMusicLoveLife

Well... He's not exactly wrong about us wanting to see him in a penitentiary. People who commit crimes SHOULD be in there. - Zach808

Oh gosh, I never even heard this song until DCfnaf showed me this song. It is one of the worst songs ever. Out of tune beat, disgusting, effortless lyrics, and terrible and boring vocals, this song belongs in the genre low quality trash, which is a genre I made up for all the worst songs ever. - AnimeDrawer

So this is the biggest hit of the year; a rap song that tastes like rancid meat sang by a guy who's behavior tastes like feces. Dear god, help us all.

9 Gucci Gang - Lil' Pump

Sure, the chorus is plain stupid, and doesn't mean anything, and has nothing to do with the rest of the song, but you know what the biggest offense this song commits is? The lack of talent or effort. Not a single line had any thought put into it. What does Gucci Gang mean? I bet the SONGWRITERS don't even know! Also, I just wanted to mention the West Jet part. That was about when he was locked off a plane. Do you know WHY he was kicked off the plane? BECAUSE HE WAS SMOKING DRUGS ON THE PLENTY WHILE SCREAMING BLOODY MURDER!

My god. The worst song anyone has ever made. I hate most modern rap since it isn't really rap, but this song is the worst out of ALL of them. And the worst part is people actually love this song. Saying the same words over and over again is not rapping. I can't stand this song at all. This is basically jake paul level of bad.

This song arrived on the Australian ARIA chart at number 48 this week and I am dying to know who the hell loves this generic piece of nonsense. Seems all rappers rap about these days is brand names. jewellery, their cars and somebody else's girlfriend. It's so predictable and absolutely crap that it removed a good song like "Lose My Mind" by Dean Lewis from the top 50. - crowdiegal

Come on its not THAT bad. 5.5/10 - AlphaQ

10 Happy Ending - Hopsin

Oh my god... normally I'd make some obnoxious comment mocking the Hopsin fanbase, but I'm not even gonna put the effort into doing that, no, this song is just terrible on every level, I'll just be blatant. -1/5 - ProPanda

Neither Sam Hunt nor Jake Paul can ever swoop this low. Get this to #1 immediately. - ProPanda

Well, think of it this way: Hunt's heart is in the right place. Hopsin is literally joking about rap's fetish for Asian girls AND THEN LITERALLY TALKING ABOUT SMASHING ASIAN GIRLS BECAUSE THEY'RE ASIAN - ProPanda

No way, Hopsin is awesome. He's just having fun, you can't take this song too seriously. Still better than 99% of all the mainstream rap today. - DaWyteNight

At least Jake Paul and Sam Hunt don't put racist jokes in their music like Hopsin over here.

The Newcomers

? Kooda - 6ix9ine

Just screaming...

? This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things - Taylor Swift

This song is the reason we can't have nice things. - AnimeDrawer

That laugh and the entire final chorus of this song make my day. Not the best on the album but a 5/5 nonetheless. - Ub8

These lyrics are lame. This song is bad. 3/10. - lovefrombadlands

I don’t think she realizes she is the only thing keeping Kanye West relevant these days. 1/5

The Contenders

11 Juju on that Beat - Zay Hilfigerrr & Zayion McCall

How does anyone like this? The cover says "this is a challenge"! The title of the album is unfinished. It should say " This is a challenge to make fairly decent music". Or " We are MENTALLY challenged".

This song sounds like a kid trying to be hip would make. This is like that stupid whip nae nae song where middle schoolers are going to enjoy it and nobody else will. What happen to the days of music when the music actually meant something. If I do not hear this song ever again I will be a happier person

Horrible, but released at the end of 2016 - Martinglez

Get it off the list it's from 2016. - AlphaQ

12 Jocelyn Flores - Xxxtentacion

Ruined any potential respect for X. - AlphaQ

Another horrible song by a horrible artist. - lovefrombadlands

Overrated? Absolutely. Worst? Well I wouldn't put it that way...

Exactly, it has a horrible message, but at least the beat is not that bad nor the rapping, but it is bad due to the message. I have heard worse. When I count worst songs, I count beat and singing/rapping too, not just lyrics. - AnimeDrawer

Just messy. 0/5 - naFrovivuS

13 Jordans - Jacob Sartorius Jordans - Jacob Sartorius

Compare you girl to your shoes. Nice job Jacob, -5/5 - ProPanda

This song is awful - RoseCandyMusic

Wow. You're DEFINITELY going to earn money by comparing a girl to shoes. 1/10. - EpicJake

Why can’t you just be a normal 15 year old!?! - AliciaMae

14 Mo Bounce - Iggy Azalea

I thought we left big butt anthems back in 2014, Iggy. - Spark_Of_Life

So This Is What Iggy Is Doing This Year...Yeah Digital Distortion Will Fail - VideoGamefan5

We have the quintessential bad arse anthem of 2017. Oh Iggy, you've gone backward since "Fancy" - crowdiegal

Anaconda and Booty were TOTALLY hated by NO ONE, so you decided to make another song about butts. GENIUS, IGGY. -5/5 - DJvedar1234

15 Bad and Boujee - Migos

A lot of these songs are from 2016 and got popular at the tail end unless your Jacob Sartorius but I don't consider his songs songs or take his career seriously. Bad and Boujee was released in 2016 but I remember picked up fire right when the year started. I don't consider this song bad as much as forgettable and boring (which is worse in my opinion). The only interesting thing about this song is the "rain drop drop top" part and even then I wouldn't remember that if the middle class white and mexican kids didn't blare it on the bus. - MrQuaz680

You know what? This is the worst meme of all time. Plus it got Lil Uzi Vert to #1. So dead and boring. -1/5 - WonkeyDude98

This song's not bad at all. It has a decent beat and a catchy chorus. Migos may not be the "Beatles of their generation" as Donald Glover once said, but they have a style that unfortunately, so many rappers have imitated since. - LoveMusicLoveLife

Technically from 2016 - Eraser

16 Swish Swish - Katy Perry

Can't Katy stop making trash already? Everyone loves Miley Cyrus' "Malibu" because Miley focused on the song, the lyrics (which she obviously wrote), and the pleasing and relaxing tone. Miley also seems so happy and sweet in the video and she now realizes she made a poor decision by being gross on stage. So why is Katy pulling this artificial act? At least Miley's songs were good in and out of her gross phase. 0/5 - DCfnaf

I thought everyone loved Malibu cause Miley stopped being dirty. Also I don't know if you'll agree with me but although Banger was awful (thanks Mike Will Mad It) it's not as bad as her 2015 album. - AlphaQ

This being a petty response to "Bad Blood", something that happened 2 years ago, makes it more loathsome. Plus, she said that if Taylor stopped fighting, she'd stop. I don't think there is any other pop star in the industry right now that is more fake than Katy Perry (Nicki Minaj is in this song too so wow). Why'd you make this song if you want the stinking fighting to stop? - DCfnaf

The first 23 seconds of the song was great. The rest is history. It's bland and mindless, and I'm 100% certain Taylor is not offended by this song, she's probably laughing at how poorly it has been written compared to her latest song - Aquaturtle

This song is pretty catchy but the lyrics was just bad especially that "big guy" voice in the beginning. Katy Perry was used to be good when "California Girls" and "Fireworks" gets popular but now it's suck especially of how songs are getting worst by now. But this one is pretty much I just heard from fashion shows, malls, etc.

17 Hit Em with the Draco - Soulja Boy Hit Em with the Draco - Soulja Boy

From the title it seems like it would have the lyrics "Imma take Draco Malfoy and smash other people with his body"

Is this a song about Draco Malfoy? I loved him in Harry Potter, great villain, however, a song about him? I hope they don't play this in a Harry Potter movie. Soulja Boy tries so hard to stay relevant, but everyone has forgot about him, nobody cared about him since 10 years ago, he is a one hit wonder. - AnimeDrawer

Draco? Harry Potter? This song is horrible.

Get lost Traita Boy! You are even more irrelevant than Madonna and Britney so here you go! *pushes* - Hellohi

18 I Don't Wanna Live Forever - Zayn & Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift's vocals are fine for me, but Zayn's is just substandard, to say the least. I cannot stand his nasally high pitch, and piled with the tasteless and inefficient 50 Shades Darker theme of the song, it leaves much to be desired. Not to mention there's practically no beat to it at all. I wasn't a fan of Love Me Like You Do exactly, but at least there was the decent beat and Ellie's vocals to make up for it. This falls HARD (and no, get your head out of the gutter) as an OST song. - Swellow

Why Taylor? Why must you attach your name to this travesty known as Fifty Shades Darker? Also, can someone add Beauty and the Beast by Ariana Grande and John Legend? It fails to do the original any justice.

Too much screaming and the vocals are too high pitched, the beat is boring and generic. This song is too whiny and dramatic. Taylor was honestly more annoying in the song than Zayn Malik, she is terrible at shouting, she can't scream. - AnimeDrawer

I think it’s a good song- just a little boring. I think these lyrics make her sound ungrateful: you livin in pain? There are people on the streets just trying to get through and your famous and have so much, and now your whining? You never dang say why.

19 Side N**** - Kodak Black

Ugh. Sometimes if the beat is good enough I can look past the trash lyrics, but this song has nothing going for it. The beat is slow and boring, and Kodak's voice is so horrible. It also doesn't help that Kodak is the least interesting rapper ever next to 21 Savage. How anybody can like this is beyond me. At least Tunnel Vision had somewhat of a beat. You can't even dance to this or play it in the club, what is the point of this? I'll never understand when rappers who are supposed to be "hard" make these boring so-called "love" songs. If you wanna hear a good rap love song listen to Lil Boosie - Facetime or Lil Trill - #1 Girl but not this mess! - DaWyteNight

To be honest, I'm just questioning his own rapper name. Kodak Black sounds like a new camera more than a rapper. - naFrovivuS

The beat is wack, he's offbeat nearly every damn time. WoRae than 1st day Out without a doubt. -5/5 - AlphaQ

EVEN WORSE THAN 1ST DAY OUT. OH MAH GODD...-5/5 - DankGodX

20 Salad Dressing - Borgore & Bella Thorne

Never mind Body Like a Back Road, Look What You Made Me Do and Thunder, this is the WORST song of 2017, this is barely what you could even call a song it's that bad. The voice going "Sauce on the salad or the sauce on the side" is absolutely creepy and whoever did the computer based noises for the instrumentation should be sacked immediately. This is not music, it's an excuse for a lot of stupid noise. - crowdiegal

This song is physically painful to listen to. Might as well put your head right next to a fire alarm if you like this. - Zach808

Bon Appetit is less painful than this, and that isn't exactly a masterpiece either. At least the chorus there isn't literally the same thing over and over again, less autotune, and actual singing (even if it's bad). Same cannot be said about this.

Really? These people?
Did you really have to do this and torture our ears? - lovefrombadlands
