Worst Songs of 2017

21 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

Nicki saved this wack excuse for a diss track - CamilaHavana

22 Kid in a Candy Store - Jojo Siwa

Who the hell is Jojo? She looks like a spoilt 6 year old girl who gets her way. - Lunala

Jojo looks like that girl at school that everyone likes because she's rich, but she treats them like trash. - naFrovivuS

I've heard this a lot on Nick Music, and I know that even noise isn't the best description for this. A racket is the best description for this. - allamassal

Oh the pain my ears went through... this song need to go

23 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

You don't wana live Taylor? THEN DIE!

24 Young and Menace - Fall Out Boy

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.

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 that earbleeding drop? I hope this won't be their new direction. 0/5 - DCfnaf

I'd rather rip my ears off then listen to this horrendous pile of filth again. I can't believe that these were the same guys who created songs like What A Catch, Donnie (the song that broke everyone into tears) and Sugar, We're Going' Down (a punk anthem). I'm a hardcore FOB fan, and this song was a massive disappointment and downgrade. Nice going, Sell Out Boy. - Catacorn

Did even the hardcore, obsessed Fall Out Boy fans like this? Usually when an artist drops a complete failure of a lead single, the fans will eat it up for about a week, but this song didn’t even have that. It bombed so hard that it didn’t even chart. - Zach808

25 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

26 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

27 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? -5/5 - DCfnaf

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

STUPID - PhoenixAura81

28 Swang - Rae Sremmurd

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

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

AAAGH! The falsetto! It hurts! AH! AHHH!

29 Hi Bich - Bhad Bhabie

Please don't tell me this bich has another song...please - AlphaQ

Her English teachers must hate her. - naFrovivuS

She has a good rapping voice. However, her beats are plain, and it sounds like she just wrote random words on her mind, put them in phrases, and made "lyrics." - HollyleafOfThunderClan

Another IRONIC song from an untalented little thot. - Elijah_Cook

30 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

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

When the greatest "metal" band of all time appearantly, decides to feature a pop star and then the song its completely ireedemable garbage people have to look back to their old recordings... - Lucretia

31 D Rose - Lil Pump

I personally like Lil Pump. He's satire. Satirical artists like Lil Pump and Lil B are pretty lit. He slurs a bit but I'll give it a pass. 4/5 - AlphaQ

Lil pump just collapse

Hilarious, but Flex like ouu (yes that's the title of a song) is better 3.5/5 - Disx

This song was boring asf

32 Ghosting - Blood on the Dancefloor

This might become my least favorite song of all time. This song ENCOURAGES teens to post nude photos of themselves and Dahvie Vanity acting like a perverted jerk wanting to look at teens naked, disgusting. And it sounds just like Bewitched if I can remember. This and Who Dat Boy are the worst songs of the year. - AnimeDrawer

Anything by this band must be awful. - Lucretia

Please get this to the top ten! Worst band ever! - AnimeDrawer

Just what I'd expect from the worst band ever to walk the earth. - Elijah_Cook

33 These Heaux - Bhad Bhabie

How on Earth did we come to this? This young girl/future bad girl just needs to go back to school before fame goes to her head. It's because of bad roles models like Kim Kardashian/Kylie Jenner, Nicki Minaj or Jake Paul that most kids nowadays are going bad. Please someone do something! - LoveMusicLoveLife

Why did Atlantic Records even sign her to their label? The song is cheaply produced, Bhad Bhabie can't rap, and the lyrics are garbage. - NiktheWiz

Bhad Bhabie's name describes her. Her songs are bad and she acts like a baby - lovefrombadlands

I think she has a good voice for rapping, but the lyrics here are just trash, and it sounds incredibly cheaply produced.

1/5 - Scr3aM

34 Not Afraid Anymore - Halsey

Disappointing to the point of depression. 1/5 - ProPanda

Halsey, what are you doing? - Spark_Of_Life

Halsey, go back to making songs like Gasoline and New Americana.

WHAT IS IT DOING THIS HIGH?
This is one of the best songs of 2017. Halsey has amazing vocals. - lovefrombadlands

35 I'm a Lady - Meghan Trainor I'm a Lady - Meghan Trainor

Only on here because it's Meghan Trainor. The song isn't even sexist, it's telling you to have pride in yourself. Just because she doesn't mention men doesn't mean the song is sexist. It has nothing to do with men and it probably has to do with Smurfette.
Edit: Saw the movie, I was right. Definitely has to do with Smurfette. Before you judge a song, think about the movie's plot Synopsis. - DCfnaf

I wanted to give this a chance, but it somehow managed to fail in every category of generic production, from grating trap horns, to unnecessary rapping, to blind empowerment, and- I'd be here all day if I were to list the other examples.

Now Meghan's recorded another soundtrack single for a terrible kids movie? It's from The Smurfs: The Lost Village, coming April 7. Anyway, Meghan needs to be stopped before she lays more eggs.

I Love Meghan, the song was written for a movie: smurfs the lost village. And it still says a good message, it's about being different and doing your own thing. Most people don't realize things and jidge a book by its cover, give the song a chance, its actually not bad

36 Feed the Machine - Nickelback Feed the Machine - Nickelback

Definitely doesn't belong here. You say it's bad because it's Nickelback? No. Their music is okay, at best. Here they tried a new approach to their sound, and instead of a pop rock feel they gave it a hard rock feel, and I say it's likely one of their best songs. 8.8/10 - naFrovivuS

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

This is actually decent for their standards. It's not the greatest thing of all time, but it's passable for such a terrible band. - DCfnaf

Not terrible. Decent for nickelback standards, - Lucretia

37 That's What I Like - Bruno Mars

@DCfnaf, Chill, People have opinions, if he doesn't like the song, Respect it and stop treating this song like The best song ever, I don't hate it, But still No Offense

Too Overplayed

It being crappy mainstream pop is a horrible reason to like it - VideoGamefan5

Technically it came out in 2016 on the album, BUT was released in 2017 as a single. So it can be considered 2017. I don't know if this song's actually that bad. Just criminally overplayed so much that it hurts my ears and gives me a headache. - Elijah_Cook

This dude talks too much about sexual intercourse - LillyPOP123

38 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

Disgusting in every way possible - Disx

I checked the comment section for this song, everyone was praising him saying he is the new Michael Jackson. He would of been. Now he's the new Ike Turner. Yes, people were praising a song with lyrics more disgusting than Fack - 445956

39 First Day Out - Kodak Black

This might be too soon for some people, but can we all agree that Kodak Black has the most grating and most irritating voice in the current industry?

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

Dammit Kodak Crack Is Taking Over 2017. - AlphaQ

Worse than Tunnel Vision - Eraser

40 Wild Thoughts - DJ Khaled

I'm gonna go hide in my bunker because apparently I'm the ONLY one that thinks this song is awful. The chorus sounds awful, Bryson Tiller has his trademark lack of energy and personality, it samples an already bad Santana song, and besides the guitar the beat has no life or presence. 0/5 - WonkeyDude98

And the award for the laziest sample of the year goes to... - NiktheWiz

This song isn't "sampling" "Maria Maria" by Santana. It's completely stealing it. - Spark_Of_Life

Lol I kinda like this. 3/5 - AlphaQ
