Worst Songs of 2017


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Taylor Swift - Trinidad James

Just...no. I thought we left this hack back in 2013 with the mind-numbingly awful "All Gold Everything". - Spark_Of_Life

Right up there with Broccoli for pure awfulness

Taylor Swift needs to make brake up song bout him. - AlphaQ

The message behind this song is taylors a hoe

22 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

23 Paris - The Chainsmokers

Basically the flaws of Chainsmokers taken together and put into a blender. With a cheap electro-gimmicky beat that sounds like a rework of a song much better (Am I the only one who thinks this sounds like Midnight City? ) and the lackluster vocals, they're really just lost their prime. Not to mention how the band has the audacity to assume that they're the next best thing to popular music, while trashing acts which have done more deserving than they have, and I don't even hate the band in general. - Swellow

It's boring, uninspired, glitchy, annoying, dumb, bland, generic, electronic, but worst of all, people like it because of its shallow, "touching" message of, "when we go down then we go down together". I don't like Something Just Like This, either.

This is amazing, I'm sorry. - ProPanda

Best thing the Chainsmokers have done since Don't let me down. Great song - Disx

24 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

Easily their worst song - XXXDDDXDLOL-

This is the epitome of "edgy"

"I'm f*** up I'm faded, I'm so complicated".

Who knew the next Simple Plan were in the form of Drew and Alex? - ProPanda

25 So Good - Amery

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

26 I Don't - Mariah Carey

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

Her voice in this song sounds so ugly

Great song - 1507563

F( )CK WIT U. u lil stoopid as bich I ain't fkin wit u - AlphaQ

27 Strip that Down - Liam Payne

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

Yet another low-end attempt for a pop singer/former boyband member to sound sexy or thuggish, all that by including shamelessly sexist lyrics about women, and of course by inviting Quavo from Migos, which has been featured in way too many songs this year. Why do every pop singers invite an urban act in EACH OF THEIR SINGLES? This trend just needs to die ASAP! - LoveMusicLoveLife

Oh my God. Where do I even begin? As a Directioner, I'd spent a LONG TIME waiting for Liam's single, and I get THIS which is a BIG disappointment. Why is that? The lyrics are absolutely disgusting, it's like he's trying to behave like every male rapper (i.e. Lil Wayne). LIAM, I REALLY LOVE YOU BUT STOP! you're BETTER THAN THIS! And this trash pile of a song SOMEHOW stayed at #1 on iTunes for a WEEK, keeping good new entries like Bad Liar and Crying In The Club away from there!

Am I the only one that likes this? He tries to be edgy and it kinda works. Quavo is always welcome too. - Disx

28 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

Oh god... These guys are still around? - XXXDDDXDLOL-

29 Not Afraid Anymore - Halsey

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

Halsey, what are you doing? - Spark_Of_Life

Closer was the only song Halsey had good vocals on. Sorry Halsey, there's a reason why you don't have a career.

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

30 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 miss the old Maroon 5 days... - EpicJake

31 Love Like Voodoo - Blood on the Dance Floor

At least Resurrection Spell could be somewhat enjoyed because it was catchy. (Hell, that was unfortunately their best song). This...is excruciating to sit through. - DCfnaf

The female vocalist is not so bad, but Dahvie Vanity ruined it with his awful voice, and the beat is terrible, same with the lyrics. This and Resurrection Spell are the worst songs of this year, this band should have never made a comeback. - AnimeDrawer

Oh my goodness...Blood on the Dance Floor is back...i'm screwed... - AlphaQ

Seriously guys you can not consider this a bad song... because this is not music it's the sound of the devil. - DaisyandRosalina

32 Believer - Imagine Dragons

Does anyone else think that the percussion sounds like balloon popping? - NiktheWiz

Boring and played on the radio every 10 seconds. - Skullkid755

Why is this song here - kok2

Really? I thought this was OK. - Swellow

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

34 Good Goodbye - Linkin Park

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

I knew it, Linkin Park pretty much is the new Maroon 5. - Swellow

The beat is okay but the chorus sucks hard! - LoveMusicLoveLife

35 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

Bleh. Future. Bleh. And why are all of these rappers doing things with crap like Draco Malfoy? - DCfnaf

Ok...stop. Future, STOP. NO MORE MALFOY JOKES. 0/5 - AlphaQ

36 Starving - Kidz Bop

The people behind this aren't even trying to hide the meaning behind the lyrics. If anything, they are making the song sound disgusting. This has to be their worst cover to date. - NiktheWiz

I couldn't even listen to the whole song. One minute in, I threw my iPod onto my bed and ran out of my room. Kidz Bop really needs to stop, now. - Scr3aM

Kidz Bop covers bad songs, and they suck. Kidz Bop also covers good song and guess what? They suck. So sick of these outdated children trying to make music. Kids already listen to the real artists. - DCfnaf

The original is forgettable but at least it's not sappy, compared to the lyrics here... The innuendos replaced just make the song laughable. - Swellow

37 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

Vine really shouldn't have shut down, it caused THIS to happen. England is not a city. I liked his Vines! WHY?! - 445956

Mix Justin Beiber and a crappy white Eminem, you get Jake Paul. The lyrics are just a bunch of random crap. - MillieTrina_Prower

England is my city

38 Humble - Kendrick Lamar Humble - Kendrick Lamar

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

Fun fact: not only is this incredibly annoying, but it was produced by Mike-Will-Made-It. Remember that guy? Me neither. 2/10. - Spark_Of_Life

Eh. The lyrics are incredibly savage, and I like his flow. However, this beat is just so generically sour. 1/5 - ProPanda

I like this song, why is it here - kok2

39 It Ain't Me - Kygo & Selena Gomez

This is way better than that entire "Stars Dance" album, that's for sure. Then again, the song is sung by the mega talentless woman, Selena Gomez but...she sounds way better here... - DCfnaf

The intro sounds a bit like something from Dora

Lame chorus, boring tune, this song is without doubt the worst hit of the year.

This Was Great. - AlphaQ

40 If You Show Up - Mike Tyson

Think Soulja Boy's the only one with a terrible diss track? Mike Tyson responded to him with something just as laughable and lame. He should just stick to boxing. Actually, this whole beef needs to just die. - Zach808

Mike Tyson made a rap song.
I don't want to live on this planet anymore. - Spark_Of_Life

It's Mike Tyson.
That enough for you? - naFrovivuS

I will allow Professor Farnsworth to sum up how I feel about this song from a simple meme:

"I don't want to live on this planet anymore! " - DCfnaf
