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.

Let me make something quite clear: This song is TERRIBLE, and anyone who unironically likes this crap should be ashamed of themselves. With that said, it isn't a very unique kind of terrible. It sucks, but I can't say that it is really that much different than most other terrible rap songs put out in the past two years. If you told me when I first heard this song that it was Migos or Rae Sremmurd, it would take me a solid minute to realize that you were lying to me. My point is, it isn't that special. As for the line, "England is my City",... he went full retard. Never go full retard. That's all I have to say about the song. As for the moving white rectangle that keeps distracting me from what I'm typing, I hate it more than the song itself.

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

Worst song ever

3 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 song is SO GENERIC AND BORING! This sucks. 0/5 - PhoenixAura81

4 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

This song's music video (at least the parts I've seen on top 100's on YouTube) LETHALLY DISTURBING! D: - PhoenixAura81

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

Oh my god Taylor. You went from bad basic bitch, to absolutely stupid basic bitch. This song and, rather, her whole album was complete garbage. But it still got popular because her dumb, white, basic bitch fanbase will defend her until their Starbucks giftcards run out and they all die from lack of Chai lattes. 1/5- Garbage. - shiftaltkey

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.

I didn't even listen to this basically because it says Jacob Sartorius on the album. - shiftaltkey

7 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

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

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

This song was the worst meme ever. Out of tune beat, his voice sounds effortless, the lyrics are completely stupid, and ended up making him a one or two-hit wonder. 1/5-Garbage. - shiftaltkey

8 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

Oh my god this song was the worst thing of 2017 and should be number 1. Again, another pointless mumble rap song by douchy high school kid that barely passes his classes in order to play sports. I hated it from when it was released. Again, another thing for the amateur rappers to make repetitive noises to. - shiftaltkey

9 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

We were in a school bus and while we were going back to school, this song came out and all I wanted to do was to smash the window, fall down in the street and get hit by a car!

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

I don't really listen to Hopsin. - shiftaltkey

The Newcomers

? Marilyn Monroe - Danielle Cohn

Where was this before? This girl was horrible.She ridiculed Madam Monroe by making this clickbait garbage. - Hellohi

I have bad feelings about this girl. She can't sing, the autotune does it for her, the lyrics are stupid and meaningless,they sound like they were written by a 9 year old (no offense to 9 year olds, her musical.lys are cringy, she dresses inappropriately for her age, and it's okay if you like her but I don't, and I personally think this song is garbage.

? That's It - Bebe Rexha

I've never listened to this song, but I HATE THIS GIRL'S VOICE! - PhoenixAura81

I definitely agree with you

The Contenders

11 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.

This song became popular just for 2-3 days and after that, everyone forgot about it!
Damn, this song makes Draco Malfoy look like the smartest person in the world!

12 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

This song was so unoriginal that even unoriginal songs were better compared to this. The rap dance craze is so annoying at this point that no record producer wants to jump on the dumbass douche bandwagon. 1/5- Garbage - shiftaltkey

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

So us girls are mere accessories to make you look more flashy? Nice job, Sartorius. WELL DONE! - LillyPOP123

14 Mi Gente - J Balvin

This song's beat gets annoying pretty quick (it's a goat moaning in pain, as someone else here pointed out), and there's a real "so bad it's good" vibe here. This song is just like any other terrible mainstream pop song. Also, this already got 7,470,000 likes on YouTube and 1.37 BILLION views. Faith in humanity lowered. - allamassal

The synth line is extremely catchy, the song has a nice rhythmic structure, the lyrics talk about J Balvin and Willy William trying to unite the world through music. It's a slow grower, but once you feel that atmosphere, there's no going back. 4/5 - ProPanda

Gosh! That song, although sung in Spanish and French, is going all over the world. Not only the song is tasteless, but the "sound" at the bottom sounds like a donkey being slaughtered, meaning it's auditive torture. - LoveMusicLoveLife

The instrumental is so annoying I want to PULL MY EARS OFF!

15 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

God. The first time I heard this I wanted to throw up because the repetition and this song in general gave me a headache. Just end your stupid career Iggy you stupid hoe. Making songs about asses is not gonna end up well for a more educated population. 1/5- Garbage - shiftaltkey

16 Strip that Down - Liam Payne

In what universe is this song edgy? This is literally a rehash of Shape of You, which is funny, considering that Ed Sheeran wrote this. - NiktheWiz

Boring, this sounds like all the modern pop and rap songs of today, how do people even call this music? - AnimeDrawer

I'm not sure if it's relevant for anything, but it turns out that this song was written/coined by Ed Sheeran.

Ugh. - ZeroBlaster

17 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

This song was the one that douchy athletes and sports fans were listening to on the way home from the wing bar. Another pointless mumble rap song that continues the trend of pointless mumble rap songs about making money, hoes, and doing drugs. Whatever. We get it. 1/5-Garbage - shiftaltkey

18 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

19 Jerika - Jake Paul

This is one of the actual lyrics of the song: "Quavo you should take your mask off". You get what I mean. There are worse, dumber lyrics out there in this song but I think I proved my point. - SelfDestruct

Hm, what can I say? First off, the lyrics are corny. The girl sounds like every mainstream, plain pop singer, and Jake sounds like he made no effort during his part of the song. - HollyleafOfThunderClan

We complain about Jake's lyrics but the girl has a few really bad lines too like "Put my ass in a tesla". what - Disx

I swear that he stole the production from lollipop by lil Wayne. Don’t believe? Listen to them at the same time, if you think your ears can handle it.

20 1-800-273-8255 - Logic

This isn't bad because it's about suicide (which is a topic that is discussed in songs much much better), it's bad because it barely tackles it and implies suicide is a cured-overnight condition. - Swellow

I decided to just use this item to write another review about this song. The concept is great, but the execution fails completely. It's just a very dreary-sounding melody with Logic's almost nasal vocals which make me want to laugh, and it implies that suicide is something that is easy to cure. - allamassal

The title is messed up by the way. The 3 and 7 need to swap places. But yeah, this song still blows, HARD! - NiktheWiz

Although the message is compasionate to suicide victims, this song actually wants to make me kill myself rather than still be alive. Also, this song is by Logic surprisingly, and I can confirm he dropped both of his testicles. - shiftaltkey
