Worst Songs of 2017


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Bloodstream - The Chainsmokers

Unnecessary swearing + Egotistical lyrics + A vocal performance that makes "Closer" sound like "Bohemian Rhapsody" + Annoying repeating "i-i-i-i" noises = "Bloodstream". - Spark_Of_Life

One of the worst off that turgid slog of an album. - WonkeyDude98

Bad, but not the worst song on their album surprisingly. - LoveMusicLoveLife

Easily their worst song - XXXDDDXDLOL-

The most overrated song ever - VideoGamefan5

23 Ooouuu - Young M.A.

Is this what rap has come to? Where we can't even come up with a decent TITLE for a song? - naFrovivuS

Eh, I like this and hate this at the same time. I'm neutral about this. Again, like Hot N! gga, the beat is excellent and the lyrics are bland. 3/5 - AlphaQ

24 I Don't - Mariah Carey

This is what happens when Mariah Carey decides to hate singing.

Her voice in this song sounds so ugly

In my opinion, this is a worse version of the song DNA by Kendrick lamar - kok2

Mariah Carey should not be here - 1507563

25 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

Chris you making me hate you and your clowning even more. First, Stimulated and now this. DO WE NEED ANOTHER PEDOPHILE ANTHEM?!?! You're being like Tyga now. Oh wait, you're a loser just like him. -5/5 - AlphaQ

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

26 Look at Me! - Xxxtentacion

Wow, I didn't know you could become famous for making "music" with a vacuum cleaner and rapping about how you can't seem to get your private parts back in your pants.

When I first heard it on YouTube, I thought the quality was worsened due to copyright issues, so I decided to listen to it on Spotify. However, when this came on and I first heard it there, I realized that this was released in factually terrible sound quality. One of the worst songs of the year. -2/5. - SelfDestruct

You hate this? I thought this was gonna be your favorite song of the year. - AlphaQ

Take FACK or Bingo (Worst Songs Ever) and any of the first 4 songs from Starboy, combine them. You get this. He sounds like an irritating 4th Grader and the beat is so good. This is an amazing disaster and is awesomely garbage. I like this and hate this at the same time. 3/5 - AlphaQ

Nice name. - naFrovivuS

27 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!

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

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

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

28 Last Text - Jacob Sartorius

Basically, all of his songs involve around sex or some questionable theme. Sweatshirt (? ), Hit or Miss (Having sex with a girl at a young age and ignoring the consequences), All my Friends (Group sex), Last Text (Sexting), Bingo (forcing a girl to follow him on Twitter and give him a blowjob), By your side (forcing a girl to be with him and not giving her some independence), Love Me Back (stalking), and Jordans (the tale of a psychopath who wont stop stalking a girl). Come on, when will young girls know that Jacob Sartorius is a bad influence to them?

Sweatshirt is literally the only one of that bunch even remotely close to being about sex. - ProPanda

He's back? I thought we left him in 2016 where he belongs?

All his song topics are terrible. You think a girl should be impressed because she's the last person you text before you go to bed? Is that supposed to be romantic? - Spark_Of_Life

Jacboob Saggytaurus Belongs In 2016 Where His Stoopid Moosik Belongz. - AlphaQ

29 Cold - Maroon 5

While not as terrible as Don't Wanna Know, this is still terrible enough to make you question your faith in the music industry. - Spark_Of_Life

"Don't Wanna Know" is really bland, but "Cold" is a slight improvement, although I think Maroon 5 should split up because their recent music is all about Adam Levine. - LoveMusicLoveLife

Oh my god guys this song grew on me 3/5 - PandaDude98

Kinda worse than Don't Wanna Know. Adam Lemon looks like a bull cause his new songs are bull. The end. 1/5 - AlphaQ

I thought the song was about murder when I first hear it because of the lyrics! 😂😂

30 Cash Me Outside - DJ Suede the Remix God

There's nowhere to hide anymore. Music is ending. -5/5 - WonkeyDude98

Remove this from the list. This shouldn't count as a song. - djpenquin999

I don't need to listen to a song to know that it is immediately awful. The title says it all... - Aquaturtle

Seriously? - Iamcool

31 Sweatshirt (Remix) - Jacob Sartorius

He still has a bad voice though... - SapphireStar

Satorius is stupid. His voice sounds like a bad case of puberty voice cracking while plugging his nose. - Lunala


IT HAS A REMIX?! NOO! - DaisyandRosalina

32 So Good - Amery

There's a reason no one knows or cares about this song - it's terrible. - Spark_Of_Life

I can't tell who's a worse singer, Amery or Amerie... this guy sounds like the laziest soundwriter ever... like he came up with some random cliché phrase "so good" and stretched it out to 214 seconds. This time would've been better spent recording somebody on ecstasy, which is what Amery sounds like with "so god."

33 SpongeBob - Princess Vitarah

First a song about Timmy Turner, now a song about Spongebob? Who's next, Jimmy Neutron? (I hope to God not), anyway, this song is disgusting and has absolutely horrible vocals and instrumentation. 0/5. - Cartoonfan202

Timmy Turner was great though...just that people judge it by the title and not listen to the song. - AlphaQ

Timmy Turner? Now Spongebob? Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls is next? - AnimeDrawer

Say what you want about Tiimmy Turner (note the double I's), but at least that song had a meaningful narrative. This has to be one of the dumbest things to come out this year. - NiktheWiz

Guys this chick just released a song called "Masturbate". She's basically a CupcakKe wannabe, just ignore her... - Disx

34 Loyalty - Kendrick Lamar

Why is this song here, It is very good - kok2

Why is this here? Third best song of the album behind XXX. and DNA. YAH. should be here - Disx

Worst song from DAMN., by far. - DaWyteNight

Only because Rihanna is here? You are such a pathetic hater aren't you? - DaisyandRosalina

35 Ohio Fried Chicken - Jake Paul

You can taste the fact it was made in less than 24 hours. - Swellow

Yup...please just kill me. Why does this idiot exist? - DCfnaf

We shouldn't give Jake's food/music to anybody unless we want to kill them - Disx

This gave me food poisoning, its awful - Disx

36 Draco - Future

Beyond the obvious unfunny Malfoy jokes that could be made, why is Future talking about me never getting my girlfriend back when his entire falsified persona revolves around casually stealing EVERYONE's girlfriend? -1/5 - WonkeyDude98

Sorry, I love this. It's the only Future song where he kinda has some energy - Disx

Another song about Draco Malfoy? Not again, what is with the trends these days in rap making songs about Draco? - AnimeDrawer

37 Despacito - Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee

Wow, isn't that funny? The version without Justin gets nowhere. See, if there was never a remix with Justin, nobody would give a crap. This is so overplayed and uncatchy. I could understand the song being around #30 for a week or two and then falling off the chart, but #1 for 26 weeks? Really?!? They have to be paying Billboard to keep this garbage at #1 for all this time. There's no way people could really like this song that much.

Most overplayed song on the radio apart from that Ed Sheeran song. I hate reggaeton, why make it even more popular? The Justin Bieber version is even worse, he cannot sing in Spanish and his voice is too soft for the song. I heard this song play at least 3 times on the radio or more. Plus, the lyrics are sexual, I can understand it. - AnimeDrawer

The original wasn't too bad, but having Justin Bieber featured on the remix was a terrible idea. Not only does he sound so bored, but he is also terrible at singing in Spanish. - NiktheWiz

I could talk about this one all day! For MONTHS, I have had to endure this trash pile of a song playing on the radio, OVER and OVER again! It is THE most overplayed and overrated song EVER! Now I'm glad a Spanish song is getting worldwide recognition but if anything, the ORIGINAL should be getting the #1 spot, not the whitewashed remix! In fact, if anything that just shows how whitewashed versions get more recognition, and that the charts are not as "diverse" as you say they are! I actually like the original, it's the remix I'm ranting about! Justin Bieber's nasally bastardization of the Spanish language is what annoys me! He should have just turned it down, because he sucks at Spanish (you should see him live, he's basically blubbering gibberish that's supposed to pass off as Spanish)! And there are TONS of better Spanish songs out there like Sofiá by Alvaro Soler!
Oh, and for all of you JB stans that are defending his nasally bastardization of the Spanish language, saying " it's ...more

38 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

This isn't that bad guys. Not good, but it's fine. - ProPanda

Zayn didn't sound edgy. Harry didn't sound edgy, but for different reasons. Why are you trying to sound edgy, Liam? - Spark_Of_Life

I love Liam, but...gah! This song is not good! It's autotuned and a failed attempt at being sexy! And to think that there are 7-year old boys singing "girl I love it when your body grinds on me..." Someone needs to knock some sense into him!

39 Humble - Kendrick Lamar Humble - Kendrick Lamar

Not understanding why people think Kendrick is some kind of legend. He's not bad as such, but he's no Eminem. He's no better than some of the generic rap stars these days and like with many rappers, he has that same bland rap sound. Not understanding the fuss over him to be honest, this song doesn't stand out to me. - Aquaturtle

Probably Mike WiLL's best song by a landslide and the only good Mike WiLL song. - AlphaQ

This song is amazing folks! And the album is a masterpiece! - LoveMusicLoveLife

I like this song, why is it here - kok2

40 Good Goodbye - Linkin Park

Okay, I'm not trying to insult them or anything I actually like the band but I don't like this song, it would have better if Mike was the only rapper in the song and if there wasn't that annoying chipmunk voice in the chorus - Iamcool

Linkin Park is basically generic garbage. Avoid his music. - AlphaQ

Linkin Park can't be the new maroon five because Chester's dead ya jackass

Good Goodbye Chester.

Too far? - Disx
