Worst Songs of 2017


The Contenders: Page 3

41 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. - DCfnaf

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.

This song sucks! It's so corny and repetitive - Scr3aM

'If she's a lady, then I'm a Vermicious Knid! ' - Grandpa Joe

42 Green Light - Lorde

You know. I just noticed something. Most people only praise this song because Lorde made it and they like Lorde because of how unique she is (that being said, unique doesn't necessarily mean good, such as the case with her, who I found to be terrible as a music artist). Sure her songs are said to be meaningful but if that's all people have to praise this song, then truth be told, there are good songs with bad lyrics and there are also bad songs with good lyrics. Don't get me wrong, I have found a lot of good songs with good lyrics and a lot of bad songs with bad lyrics. This falls under the bad song with good lyrics type as the lyrics are the only redeemable aspect of this song, and they aren't even that good anyway. Not only is her voice so nasal and annoying, but the beat just is so forgettable that I don't even remember how this song sounds like. With all that, this is a 0/5 for me. - SelfDestruct

This song is actually OK. Lorde isn't really that bad and it's nice of her to come back after a hiatus. - Swellow

Not her best, but I wouldn't put it on the worst list. Maybe 3.5/5 - ShadowCat

Like this song - 1507563

43 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

This is ear torture. That distorted off-key synth will haunt me forever.

After more thought, I realized this is as close as the Death Grips will get to the Hot 100. 3/5 - ProPanda

44 Gold - Kidz Bop

I'm not gonna lie, I loved the latest Kids Bop mainly because it's funny. - ProPanda

LOL - VideoGamefan5

THIS EXISTS?! - WonkeyDude98

You don't even want to know what exists in music these days. And I thought Justin Bieber was bad - Hater

45 A Violent Noise - The xx
46 Performance - The xx
47 When I Met You - David Bowie
48 Love Me Back - Jacob Sartorius

A blatant ripoff of Ariana Grande's Why Try ( not that I like Grande's music).

Actually, it's Shawn Mendes' Kid In Love. - WonkeyDude98

This guy should be in school, not making crap like this - Scr3aM

Your comment has been liked. If Ariana Grande releases a song this year, please put it on this list. Ariana Grande has not changed. And Selena Gomez does the same type of songs. How dare they all. >:(

49 Missing You - Johnny Orlando

I feel like adding artists like this to the list is cheating. It doesn't fit the basic standards of music. - ShadowCat

He looks around 7 or 8 on the cover - Scr3aM

He can't even sing. His voice has too much auto tune and he can't even play instruments. -10000/10.

50 On Hold - The xx

Pretty sure this was filler, since Spark_Of_Life's remix said he only included the XX's songs as filler for the list to be submitted. - Swellow

The xx are a pretty amazing band. Sad to see this at #1. 5/5 - ProPanda

51 Replica - The xx
52 Castle on the Hill - Ed Sheeran

This is a better version of 7 Years. 4/5 - ProPanda

It's boring, but I can't say that it's a bad song. It might actually not be that bad. - Spark_Of_Life

Horrible song - 1507563

I accidentally voted for this. - RalphBob

53 Swalla - Jason Derulo

Judging by the cover, I'm not sure I want to hear this... - Scr3aM

Good song - 1507563

This is a song apparently

someone shoot me - wrests

Jason Derulo. Making a trap-infused DJ Mustard-esque sellout song. This is worse than Wiggle.

The only redeeming quality to this bland, colorless, grating, needlessly graphic atrocity is that Nicki Minaj's verse is the reason for the existence of Shether by Remy Ma, which is one of the greatest diss tracks ever recorded. -3/5 - WonkeyDude98

54 The One - The Chainsmokers

Putting the horrendous vocal performance and the barely-there instrumentals aside, the only thing this has going for it is the passable (at best) lyrics. - Spark_Of_Life

Gee, I'm the exact opposite of Spark on this one. I like the sincerity of Andrew's voice, and the production is alright, but man the lyrics are really cringey. Also, this drop makes me feel underwhelmed. 2.5/5, may grow on me (probably will grow on me) - ProPanda

It seems like none of us can agree on this. For me...believe it or not, I actually think it's a decent song. It's not good, Andrew Taggart still has the least conviction I've ever heard out of anyone ever, but I actually think that the more stripped back pianos and vocal layering along with the lyrics about not wanting to be the one to end a relationship, they are more real than a lot of this band's other stuff. So whaddaya know, I like a Chainsmokers song more than Spark_of_Life or ProPanda. 3/5 - WonkeyDude98

I can't find any beat in this song. - TheSuperBanana

55 What Do I Know - Ed Sheeran

Please. There are far worse songs than this - Hater

56 Brave for You - The xx
57 By Your Side - Jacob Sartorius

Ok... the beats and instrumentals are actually not that bad. Give this to a competent singer using those beats and this could actually work. Of course, it's Jacob Sartorius and his lyrics we're talking about here, so... 3/10. - Spark_Of_Life

This Is Just Horrible, Jacob Stinks - VideoGamefan5

This song sounds like a reggae version of The Weeknd's Starboy.

58 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

I'm 100% sure this is a joke.

That's it, I'm completely on Soulja's side again. -1/5 - WonkeyDude98

59 Believer - Imagine Dragons

Oh dear... Nintendo are putting this song in their Switch ads. I have a bad feeling about this console. - Zach808

First Off, Imagine Dragons Suck, And Second, Nintendo Used This Too Much! - VideoGamefan5

I don't like this song. ( from an Imagine Dragons fan)

Is it worse than other songs of theirs? Yes. Is it the worst song of 2017 so far?
Lol, not even close to it.

60 Beauty and the Beast - Ariana Grande & John Legend

The last two people I would expect to be on a song together collaborate to sing a classic Disney tune...Yeah, I'll pass. - Spark_Of_Life

An absolute disgrace to the original. Thank god someone finally added this atrocity!

Ariana Grande and John Legend were not the right couple to sing this. - NiktheWiz

Let me guess... the overrated, talentless, bitchy Ariana Grande is in this just because this movie is mostly for girls...
