Worst Songs of 2017


The Contenders: Page 4

61 1-800-237-8255 - Logic

This isn't bad because it's about suicide (which is a topic that is discussed in songs much much better), it's bad because it barely tackles it and implies suicide is a cured-overnight condition. - Swellow

The title is messed up by the way. The 3 and 7 need to swap places. But yeah, this song still blows, HARD! - NiktheWiz

Fun fact: If you replace all the instruments in the song with dated '90s new jack swing style drums, it suddenly becomes a cheesy number in an after school special. All that's missing is Logic going "Suicide: It's no joke, kids! " at the end. - BlarchBlaces

To be honest, is good-bad. Not bad, not good, it's so bad it's good. - Swellow

62 Middle Fingers - Missio

An absolute disgrace. I don't know whether it was supposed to be a joke but this is probably the worst indie song I've ever heard. Buckley made me discover it with his musical autopsy. - LoveMusicLoveLife

This is what all Indie music sounds like to people who hate Indie music. It's just SO generic that I wouldn't be surprised if this ended up being a pop hit. - Zach808

If this does become a pop hit...I'm probably the only person that genuinely holds a burning rage for this song, and...just LISTEN TO IT! -1/5 - WonkeyDude98

Why so offensive - kok2

63 That's What I Like - Kidz Bop Kids

Rubbish cover of already one of the worst songs ever - VideoGamefan5

Kidz Bop has always sucked, and to make matters worse, they're covering a song about sex. Whoever thought this was a good idea either needs mental help or jail time - HollyleafOfThunderClan

It's Kidz Bop of course it sucks! - Cartoonfan202

"Strawberry milkshakes on ice"? - DCfnaf

64 T-Shirt - Migos

The autotune makes me pee inside my pants.

This song is awesome! It's Basically Bad and Boujee gone right. 5/5 - AlphaQ

Ummm I like it and hate it - 1507563

Not kidding guys, this is the best song of the year. 555555555/5 - Disx

65 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

I love LINKIN PARK, as a matter of fact, they're one of my favorite bands. However, this song is just boring, generic, and sounds like nearly every mainstream pop song on the charts.

66 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

I'll never be by your side Jacob - EpicJake

This song is about stalking.
Well done. - naFrovivuS

67 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

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

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

68 Hit Me Back - Jacob Sartorius

Yes I want to hit him for making this trash - Disx

JUST NO. - UltimateCraig

69 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

70 XO TOUR Llif3 - Fame on Fire

I did not like the original XO TOUR Llif3 by Lil Uzi Vert. It was mind numbingly dull in every sense of the word, from the insanely autotuned (yet boring) vocals to the generic, uncatchy beat. From reading ProPanda's sarcastic comment on this song right here, I tried to tell myself that this version would be better because it's a rock cover...but it's not. It's not even close. It may sound more interesting and it may have those decently played guitars, but this just does not work. Fame on Fire likes to cover pop songs and give them a rock/metal sound. Usually it doesn't work at all, and it shows certain Metalhead Elitists that turning a pop song into a rock song does not automatically make it a masterpiece. This band tends to make songs that are meant to be tragic (such "Heavy" and this) much more energetic because they lack the emotion the songs need and mainly focus on the sound such as their growling and their generic, uninspired guitar instrumentation. Speaking of the growling, it ...more - DCfnaf

Dude, what? This is great! The original XO TOUR Llif3 was just stupid and trappy with no real emotion or beat. But when it's a rock song there's EMOTION and REAL LYRICS AND VOCALS. You don't know real music, the original uses bad words, but this one is ACTUALLY deep by saying haters instead of the N-Word. This is way our generation is screwed, kids in my school just listen to stupid rap like Lil Wayne and Lil Uzi. Go educate yourself and listen to real hip hop like Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, and Hopsin. - ProPanda

71 What Do I Know - Ed Sheeran

Please. There are far worse songs than this - Hater

72 I'm the One - DJ Khaled

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

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

Because it's Bieber baby

73 Shining - DJ Khaled
74 Despacito/I'm the One (Mashup) - Alex Aiono
75 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

76 These Heaux - Bhad Bhabie

Who allowed this girl to have a music career? - Aquaturtle


Never thought this would be possible. And she's fourteen years old?!

Mediocre. Though I suspect this'll hit the top 5 soon for being by a controversial person. 2/5 - ProPanda

77 Thunder - Imagine Dragons

This is even worse than Believer. Also, I'm a big fan of Imagine Dragons but I have to admit this song fails. 0/5 Imagine Dragons Worst Song Up To Date. - AlphaQ

This is Believer but more chill, nicer vocal patterns, a better melody, controlled production, and a hook that isn't a 30 year old man (not exaggerating) screaming "Pain" in your face. I'll take it. 3/5 - ProPanda

"Believer" is a guilty pleasure of mine. This, on the other hand, is completely HORRIBLE. 0/5 - DCfnaf

Ughhh sooo annoying. The sound effects don't do anything for this song other than give me a giant headache. I always turn off the radio when this song comes on - crowdiegal

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

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

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

What a joke! It has 2 million dislikes and is on number 69? Put this on No 10.

Why is this already one of the most disliked YouTubevideos of all time?

79 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

Travis Scott is now a Drake wannabe
