Worst Songs of 2017

The Top Ten

1 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...

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

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

How did this drop to #2 so quickly? Well I'm not that active anymore zoom. - AlphaQ

2 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

UPDATE: I was wrong. Body Like a Back Road is getting radio airplay in Australia and has just entered the ARIA Chart top 50. Australia, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING? - crowdiegal

How did this PURE CRAP REACH THE TOP 10 AND STILL IN THE TOP 10 IN I TUNES AFTER 5 MONTHS WE NEED TO GET THIS TO 1 ON THE WORST LIST! 0/10

3 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.

This is horrible. THIS SHOULD HAVE AS MUCH DISLIKES AS SWEATSHIRT! - SapphireStar

4 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.

When your song has more dislikes than likes from people who genuinely love rap music, you know you are an absolutely abysmal music artist. - DCfnaf

5 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

"Lil Kodak, they don't like to see you winnin' They wanna see you in the penitentiary". Kodak Black, I just wanted to leave this comment just to let you know that you are a waste of space in the world and you deserve to be locked in the penitentiary, you disgusting and vile excuse for a human being. - DCfnaf

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

GET KODAK CRACK BACK INTO TUB TREE - AlphaQ

6 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 in 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

...trash.

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

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

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.

This is Ed ShereAhn Trying to hard to sound sexy but ending up like a perv
Proof: "Last night I was in my room and my bedsheets smell like you."
Pedophile alert! - AlphaQ

8 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.

nope

9 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

Another stupid dance - venomouskillingmachine

10 Jordans - Jacob Sartorius Jordans - Jacob Sartorius

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

This song is awful - RoseCandyMusic

Isn't comparing a girl to a pair of shoes shallow? No, just me? - HoneyClover

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

? Come Hang Out - AJR

The Contenders

11 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

This stripper isn't a singer. - AlphaQ

12 Heavy - Linkin Park & Kiiara

Really disappointed with this song after a few listens. The lyrics sung by Chester sound like a self-parody, Kiiara's part is really bland and the song in itself doesn't take off and sounds like ANY OTHER pop song of the last few years. I just hope this band doesn't end up like Maroon 5, whose most recent songs are all about Adam Levine. - LoveMusicLoveLife

Whether or not you think Linkin Park should experiment, I think we can all agree that collaborating with Kiiara of all people was a terrible idea. I'm guessing Linkin Park are the only people on the planet who actually liked Gold. - Zach808

Well it reached the top 20 and got a bunch of streams, so that's a bit of an exaggeration... - ProPanda

It's not too bad, but this is really disappointing for Linkin Park standards. I like Kiiara's voice on this though. - NiktheWiz

To be honest, this is a good song but I kinda disliked the reactions the fans made. They should accept that even one of the greatest bands will change gradually. This song isn't really disappointing but quit sticking too much to Rock music because it can't stay the best for eternity - Neonco31

13 Swang - Rae Sremmurd

That visitor comment about me...what's that supposed to mean? - WonkeyDude98

I have absolutely no idea why, but I kinda like this 3/5 - Disx

This song is fun. Only bad thing is the falsetto. - ProPanda

I can't help but cringe at this song - EpicJake

14 First Day Out - Kodak Black

This isn't even in the top 100? Anything associated with Kodak Black this year is guaranteed to suck. - DCfnaf

Sucky song by one of the worst rappers ever. Kodak Black cannot rap, he makes Soulja Boy look like Eminem. He should be in jail, not making trash music. - AnimeDrawer

What? Kodak Crack is back? Without a song as bad as Tunnel Vision? NOOO... - AlphaQ

Wooww Kodak. Just in case you thought Tunnel Vision practically mocked common sense and human decency with Kodak's pathetic excuses to justify rape charges that people actually bought into, here's the one-two. This song talks about Kodak Black's first day out of jail (which would have been a 364 day sentence but Kodak is a celebrity so he got out in a month), where he talks about his charges and how he doesn't regret them.

You want me to remind you of those crimes?

Armed robbery and sexual assault.

-2/5 - WonkeyDude98

15 Chained to the Rhythm - Katy Perry

This song is hypocrisy at its finest. Just listen to it. The lyrics are hypocrisy. The beat is boring, the music video is creepy and Katy is promoting her ridiculous liberal agenda. Little does she realize that if we were all chained to the rhythm we would have elected Hillary Clinton because she had all the elite billionaires and celebrities support. But we went against the rhythm and supported Trump. Unless she all of a sudden supports Trump, which I doubt, she is a total hypocrite who wrote this song in a couple days to try and brainwash more people to follow her agenda!

Another attempt for Katy Perry to regain her relevance lost years ago, which only manages to flop as an upbeat song in comparison to the likes of Castle On The Hill. - Swellow

How in hell does liberalism have anything to do with this song? Katy Perry's just droning about how the pop scene that made her famous is mindless upbeat garbage (which it's not right now, it's mindless soul-sucking garbage) over one of the dullest beats I've heard all year. 0/5 - WonkeyDude98

Liked the song but katy needs to stop with political @#$% like this - garlicboy

16 1-800-273-8255 - Logic

Unintentionally very condescending to people struggling with depression.

Yes, I'm still alive, guys. But not for much longer after hearing this. - Spark_Of_Life

Let's get this entry up higher on the list in place of the fake one. - NiktheWiz

Hey can we make this #1, with the fake version at #2? If y'all do this, I'll do a sorta face reveal. - ProPanda

17 Privacy - Chris Brown

Oh Chris Brown, what were you thinking? I know he is an awful person but I still liked his music overall. But this is just terrible, thanks to awful lyrics, despite decent production. That line in the chorus "licking your private parts" just angers me and makes me facepalm in disgust every time I hear it due to how much I want to forget it but can't! Usually, bad lyrics can be ignored by good production. However, that is so not the case here, as the lyrics are so bad, it's virtually impossible to ignore them. Also, for the first time when he is rapping, he sounds like he has a cold! A contender for the worst song of 2017, -2/5! Chris Brown is better than this, but if he keeps this disgusting behavior up, then he should quit his music career. - SelfDestruct

If this is what we can expect from Chris Brown's 40 track album, we're screwed. - Zach808

40 tracks? I think I'm better off drowning my sorrows by reading the entire catalog of Jack Chick tracts. - Swellow

Disgusting in every way possible - Disx

18 Young and Menace - Fall Out Boy

Dang. I love Fall Out Boy, but this is easily their worst song. The guys that made "Centuries", "Young Volcanoes", "Irresistible", "Immortals", and "Dance Dance" made...this? Come on! How can this amazing band be behind this utter garbage? I hope this won't be their new direction. - DCfnaf

Right when I thought that they couldn't have topped that Ghostbusters cover as the worst thing they have done, they've proven me wrong with this disaster. I'll be damned if that hook isn't the worst of the year. 0/10. - NiktheWiz

Sell Out Boy proves that they can continue to make even worse music every time they make a new song. Can't believe these are the same guys who made the masterpiece, What a Catch, Donnie.

That cool artwork was wasted on such a bad song - wrests

19 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.

I don't like this song unlike most of my friends who sing the song at the class. The real reason why I don't like it because this song was too boring and also make me thinks that the director of film wants to promote the film to the kids. - BeaM456

It is not worst

20 Feed the Machine - Nickelback Feed the Machine - Nickelback

Honestly this Nickelback song is pretty good in my opinion. Good drums, a pretty decent guitar solo, and Chad Kroeger's voice is getting better. The lyrics also are a little better. - LoveMusicLoveLife

So I was told that Nickelback released a decent single so I checked it out and it was completely forgettable at best. - cjWriter1997

Not a fan of Nickelback but I'm sure it is not as bad as most of the songs today - Iamcool

I'll feed you a potato. - AlphaQ
