Worst Songs of 2017


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Hit Me Back - Jacob Sartorius

JUST NO. - UltimateCraig

62 Something Just Like This - The Chainsmokers & Coldplay

Bad but not worse than the butchering of a masterpiece by Ariana Grande and John Legend (Beauty and The Beast).

I guess they didn't want to call this song "Roses No.2." - NiktheWiz

Only Chainsmokers song I like. This is actually pretty decent! - UltimateCraig

Roses + Closer + Coldplay + Different Pitch = This.

63 Battle Symphony - Linkin Park

It's sad to see what LP has become! They were going back to their roots with the decent album that was The Hunting Party, and then they come up with some excessively bland electro-pop tracks. This track is another blatant example. My disappointment can't be relieved, and I feel like LP will have the same fate as Maroon 5 by putting Chester Bennington (or Mike Shinoda) in front, and leaving every other member worthless. I hope rock music will soon get back in the mainstream because I feel like people are becoming less interested in actual music with REAL instruments and not just computer-generated beats or sounds. I'm truly losing faith in music these days. - LoveMusicLoveLife

Another attempt by Linkin Park to sound like any other Electro Pop artist out there. It failed miserably. - cjWriter1997

I could tolerate "Heavy". This song is stupid as hell. - DCfnaf

Screw this whole album. - AlphaQ

64 Bom Bidi Bom - Nick Jonas & Nicki Minaj

How Many Songs Are In This Awful Movie Sequel To An Already Crappy Movie? , At Least The First Movie Had Good Songs, This One Has Awful Songs!, All Of Them! - VideoGamefan5

Oh lord where do I begin? 0/5 - ProPanda

Just screw this entire album. - DCfnaf

65 What Do I Know - Ed Sheeran

Please. There are far worse songs than this - Hater

66 Shining - DJ Khaled
67 I'm the One - DJ Khaled

I honestly don't see what's so bad about this song. I've listened to it and it's not that bad. - EpicJake

Isn't bragging about brand names and anything getting old by now? That chorus has to be one of the most unimaginative I have ever heard. - crowdiegal

Put this as number one. It's just five untalented jerks screaming about how good they are

Admit it, everyone. You hate this because it's a collab with Justin Bieber AND Lil Wayne. I know y'all too well... - AlphaQ

68 How It is (Wap Bap...) - Bibi H.

This sounds like a bad karaoke cover of a kid's song. - Spark_Of_Life

Pretty bad, but it is not the worst song ever, I have heard worse songs from BOTDF. However, the lyrics are cheesy and the guitar is so simple. The vocals are not so bad, but get annoying at the chorus. - AnimeDrawer

It just sounds too generic. I mean the instrumentation sounds like it came from iMovie or something. - Cartoonfan202

69 Killing a Little Time - David Bowie

Best song of the year so far, to be honest. - SwagFlicks

I did because its terrible

To Be Honest This Wasn't Bad. - AlphaQ

Who put this here? - XXXDDDXDLOL-

70 You Don't Know Me - Jax Jones

Fun fact: not only is this annoying as hell, but it's boring as well - Spark_Of_Life

These kind of songs are for the club or for EDM fans, not really for general listening. It's generic but it's not that bad compared to other songs I've heard this year - Aquaturtle

Can I be as cool as the singer? 2.5/5 - ProPanda

Jac from Mortal Kombat X made a song? K... - AlphaQ

71 Craving You - Thomas Rhett

As someone who kinda likes Maren Morris, I think having her on here feels wasteful since she barely gets to sing. - NiktheWiz

I mean, the production's nice, but the lyrics are half-written, and Rhett isn't very memorable vocally. Also, Maren Morris... she's less present than Emily Warren on Paris...

1.5/5 - ProPanda

Wonkey: In my months of not acknowledging and not caring about Thomas Rhett (mainly because Sam Hunt is worse in every way somehow), I completely forgot that he is without exaggeration one of the worst artists ever.

I don't wanna sound like a total elitist (looking at you Spectrum Pulse), but why doesn't Thomas Rhett just go full-on pop already? He'd be good at it, seeing is this is trying to be the blandest approximation of 80s new wave and banjo pop.

Oh yeah, and Maren Morris is here. If you remember my big issue with that song off of Rhett's last abortion Tangled Up called Playing With Fire and you know the big issue I had with that song...yeah this song does it again. Ugh. 0/5 - PandaDude98

72 Crying in the Club - Camila Cabello

I don't hate this. At all, to be honest. The production is great, and the melody is really nice. The lyrics aren't perfect, but I wouldn't call them bad either. Camilla sounds pretty nasal on the chorus, but other than that, I can get behind this. 4/5 - ProPanda

Reason it sounds like Sia is because Sia helped write it but damn it sounds more like a Sia album offcut rather than a single release. Not a good start to that solo career, Camila. - crowdiegal

Yay! The 5th Harmon lead singer is improving. 3/5 - AlphaQ

Sorry if I annoyed you with my long essay, but it's just to address all the haters claims and why they are wrong. Because I was reading through all the comments on iTunes and YouTube/VEVO, and the iTunes comments consisted mainly of "ripoff" "unoriginal" etc! Like sampling is okay. It's not ripping it off. Now if it contained a horrendous amount of sampling, like Anaconda did, well then THAT would be a ripoff! But it only samples adlibs so it's fine!
And to the stupid H4RMONY stans that say that Camila will flop, YOU ARE WRONG! She'll be the next Beyoncé! I mean Beyoncé will STILL be Queen, but Camila will also be queen!

73 Missing You - Johnny Orlando

He looks around 7 or 8 on the cover - Scr3aM

This isn't even fair anymore. - WonkeyDude98

Ok guys calm down. This kid is and will stay irrelevant, so just stop giving him attention and he'll go tf away. - ProPanda

First Jacob Saggytaurus...Now Him? - AlphaQ

74 The Fighter - Keith Urban

Sorry, Keith, but we did not need another Moves Like Jagger (except even worse). - NiktheWiz

Wasn't this a hit from last summer or so? - Zach808

No. I just entered the charts because of a "viral" video. It's getting officially released this year. - ProPanda

Sorry Keith Butt Your A Virgin. - AlphaQ

No, no, no,...no...no...no...-1/5 - AlphaQ

75 Mask Off - Future

This is Future's best song to be honest. It wasn't boring and nothing like Karate Flop. 4/5 - AlphaQ

76 Cake - Flo Rida

Has there ever been a good song with the word Cake in the title? Sad thing is, this is probably one of the better ones. - Zach808

Flo Rida is awesome and this song has a nice beat but it sounds so unfinished! - DaWyteNight

This is a challenge listening to this album! - Scr3aM

I never really knew why christangrant had this immense hatred for Flo Rida because I didn't listen to enough of his trash. Now I know exactly why. - DCfnaf

77 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

This isn't that bad... - DCfnaf

I actually this is a great song! - DCfnaf

78 Say Something Loving - The xx

What the heck? We're not even in 2017 yet and we're putting songs by the xx on here?

79 Lips - The xx
80 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

Nobody likes Kidz Bop, so they should stop. All they want is money, please do not buy their albums. - AnimeDrawer
