Worst Songs of 2018


The Top Ten

1 Gummo - 6ix9ine

Wow this almost got into the top 10! I guess people love hearing the screams of a Skittle that likes having sex with kids... - Disx

Honestly, I'd rather listen to this over all the auto-tuned boring rap of the last two years. - DaWyteNight

A child rapist who screams and its called "rap". Childish Gambino and Kendrick Lamar are the only good mainstream rappers

To be honest, he’s just lil Jon for the next generation. God save us all.

2 Gucci Gang - Lil' Pump

Regardless if it came out in 2017 it sucks - Randomator

I like this. It came out and 2017. Also, there is no point in voting a generic trap banger, it doesn't have enough substance to be on a worst list - Disx

Annoying, but way too catchy that I end up singing this out of nowhere. Lil Pump actually isn't that bad of a rapper, but the bland and boring beats and the repetitive lyrics make his music bad. - AnimeDrawer

not 2018 - kok2

3 Whiteboy - Tom Macdonald

I don't feel ashamed for being white, but if I did, this would be the reason why. - Zach808

This is "I'm Not Racist" by Joyner Lucas done wrong. - 445956

Horrible and 0/10. - lovefrombadlands

This site is full of Anthony Fantano stans. I would consider myself that too but I don't hate everything that he hates. This song really isn't that bad - venomouskillingmachine

4 End Game - Taylor Swift

I am voting for this as a protest against crappy desaturated pop music that has no edge like this song. Taylor Swift sounds incredibly nasal, Future mumbles his way through his verse and sounds like he just phoned it and I have no idea what is doing with Ed Sheeran being on this song at all. The choice of singles from "Reputation" has been absolutely terrible (although it's not in any shape or form a good album). Should have just been called "Ego Trip" because that's all this song is. - crowdiegal

Why?! Just because it's Taylor Swift, does NOT mean so many radio stations must overplay this over and over again! It's not even a good song. Boring beat and Ed Sheeran and Future's part did not make it much better. - TristGamer

Probably the best of the singles she's released so far from this album, but that's not saying much. The song reminds me of a half-assed Bad Blood, this time with more popular guest stars thrown in to boost sales. - Zach808

Taylor's worst song yet 0/5 - AnnieCallie

5 Freaky Friday - Lil Dicky

What? This song is hilarious! ! Can't believe you'd take this so seriously! - musickid84

The problem in this song is Chris Brown and then all the unnecessary cameos who appeared in the outro. - LoveMusicLoveLife

This is basically a Bart Baker Parody if it was better produced and had Chris Brown on it. In other words...yeah, 0/10. - DCfnaf

Why is this here? It's probably the only good song Chris Brown released in years. - venomouskillingmachine

"I can sing so well."

Then why do you need to use auto-tune on every song, Chris! - DaWyteNight

6 Freak - Borgore & Gentlemen's Club

I apologize to Salad Dressing. Not only is the drop to this infinitely worse, but it may also be the worst moment in music that I've ever heard. -1/10. - NiktheWiz

Its borgore so that means its bad - AnnieCallie

Wait, this douchebag still makes music? I thought he was over. With how bad Salad Dressing is, I am not even going try listening to this one, I know it will be very awful. - AnimeDrawer

I don’t even have the energy to whine about Borgore anymore. This is the musical quality I’d expect from him so...-5/5 - DCfnaf

7 Emoji a Chain - Migos

The song title is enough to make me cringe and not listen to it

Look at that name. Hear the song. What do they have in common? The rating of 0/10 of course! - lovefrombadlands

This is fine. I will keep defending Migos. 3/5 - Disx

That's like the worst song title yet. - AnnieCallie

8 Sunshine Riptide - Fall Out Boy Sunshine Riptide - Fall Out Boy

Yes, I know that it is not 2018 yet. But I wanted to make this list anyway. I like both of these bands, but neither albums look like they will be good from the singles. I also do know that these songs will most likely not be the worst songs of 2018. Sorry for the confusion. - Kokopawley

It's not even 2018 yet. - Selfiefan68

This list just consists of FOB and BVB songs. Its not even 2018 yet either - Cartoonfan202

Patrick's voice is autotuned throughout the whole song, Burna Boy is mumbling throughout the whole song, and it's hard to hear what he actually says through the cringe lyrics. 2.5/5. - Catacorn

9 Young and Menace - Fall Out Boy

Worst Fall Out Boy song ever made, I wanted to rip my ears out after hearing this garbage. Especially with painful, high-pitched screeching as a chorus to this mess. Come on FOB, I...no, EVERYBODY thought you were better than this. -5/5. - Catacorn

I'm a major fan of FOB, but if I didn't read that it was made by them, I'd never realize that. It doesn't even sound right at first, and then it's absolute crap. - redhawk766


This has to be the worst drop I�'ve heard in my life 0/5

10 Kooda - 6ix9ine

I actually like this song, voice goes well with beat and Flow - kok2

6ix9ine is my most HATED artist of 2018. - Swampert02

When people that like Gummo say that it has a flow, they mean this basically. This is still horrible, but not enough for my worst list since it's got a real flow. 1/10 - StarlightSpanks

A new Lil' Pump. Retire. - DaisyandRosalina

The Newcomers

? IDGAF - Dua Lipa

It’s just not her best. - lovefrombadlands

? Play Around - V-Nasty

The Contenders

11 Billy - 6ix9ine

Hate him with a passion. He needs a prison sentence for being a pedophile. - Elijah_Cook

Worst song of all time. This guy sounds more autistic here than he ever did in his previous hits. -2/5 - StarlightSpanks

All he does is scream. - The01Bro

Hmmm. I think my ranking of this assohle goes Keke>Gummo>Billy>Kooda. This is bad, but not terrible 1/5 - Disx

12 ... Ready for It? - Kidz Bop ... Ready for It? - Kidz Bop

To be honest all Kidz Bop songs suck

13 Sad! - Xxxtentacion

Why the hell is this there this song is great. People who don't like this believe in fake news because his girlfriend said XXXTENTACION beat her even though it isn't true, some other guy did and she even admitted it. - venomouskillingmachine

Those lyrics would've been terrible no matter who performed them. I don't even know or care if they have anything to do with his charges. I just despise people who threaten suicide to manipulate their partner into staying with their sorry ass. - Zach808

It's people like these who deserve to be banned from being in a relationship for all eternity. The ones who threaten suicide if their boyfriend or girlfriend ever leaves them. What an abusive, attention-seeking douchebag this guy is. - Zach808

"Suicide if you ever try to let go"...wow you made Sam Hunt look totally un-manipulative in comparison. -1/5 - DCfnaf

This song is great so shut the hell up haters it has a warming meaning

14 Look What You Made Me Do - Kidz Bop Look What You Made Me Do - Kidz Bop

Kids bop and an already bad song is not a good combination - Randomator

Well then... - isaaonrtdmtr

15 Supplies - Justin Timberlake

This is one of the worst songs ever. He tries to sound like The Weeknd or Drake (which are good artists) but he also tries to mix his own sound with it and it just doesn't work out. 1/5 for being unique - venomouskillingmachine

Awful (and Justin is awful)

Yes. Bring back the old JT, his music isn't that good anymore. This song is all over the place. - DaWyteNight

Meh song, but the bridge is fantastic. - ZeroBlaster

16 Our Destiny - Black Veil Brides Our Destiny - Black Veil Brides

It's 2018. I'm pretty sure the last time BVB had a mainstream hit was 2008. - Swellow

17 Helluvit - Tom Macdonald

Isn't this the same guy who made that "WHITEBOY WHITEBOY" song? Now he sounds like the white middle class Hopsin or the white middle class Russ. - venomouskillingmachine

At first glance, it's not as instantly hateable as Whiteboy, but I feel like this sums up Tom more than that crock of crap did.

To be honest, it's actually kinda worse than Whiteboy, if only for the fact that Whiteboy was uniquely bad. But Helluvit? That just kinda fits on the shelf alongside that Joyner Lucas remix of Gucci Gang or anything that Hopsin has done - conscious rap that lacks any charisma, wordplay, punchiness, quotability or good production, but is supposed to be impressive because "look at all this meaning and these silly bulls! " Alright, yeah, cool, you can take potshots at mumble rappers and you don't do lean. Bravo. Now write a hook that doesn't sound like it'd be rejected by every Soundcloud rapper ever.

If this is what counts as "woke", then I'm going back to bed. - BlarchBlaces

18 Bartier Cardi - Cardi B

She should just go back to being a stripper.

Wow the only comment here is kinda offensive but well. I like this. I like Cardi B in general, I think shes very talented. This is a good single 3.5/5 - Disx

The beat sounds like a poorman's version of Bodak Yellow. - DaWyteNight

19 Top Off - DJ Khaled

The only interesting thing about this song that will probably make it a hit is Beyonce calling out Kim Kardashian and Tiffany Haddish but beyond that this is just horrible headache inducing noise that not even Beyonce sounds good on. - crowdiegal

Yeah wow this is terrible. All of these artists have overstayed their welcome and should retire. - DaWyteNight

I wanted to die while listening to this "song". Is that normal? - ZeroBlaster

I... like this way more than I should - Disx

20 Keke - 6ix9ine

This sucks so hard. - ZeroBlaster

Fetty wap and Boogie do not work in this song - kok2

Fetty Wap and A Boogie saved the song - venomouskillingmachine

21 Church - Fall Out Boy Church - Fall Out Boy
22 Sick Boy - The Chainsmokers

I can understand why many people hate this, but it's literally always in my head. 5/5 - StarlightSpanks

This is good, the lyrics are very relevant. "How many like is my life worth"? 4/5 - Elijah_Cook

How many likes is my life worth? 0/5 - DCfnaf

This isn’t bad, it’s good for their standards. - lovefrombadlands

23 The King of Pain - Black Veil Brides The King of Pain - Black Veil Brides
24 Heaven’s Gate - Fall Out Boy Heaven’s Gate - Fall Out Boy
25 Stay Frosty Royal Milk Tea - Fall Out Boy Stay Frosty Royal Milk Tea - Fall Out Boy

There's a certain horrible line in this song. - lovefrombadlands

Not a horrible song, but some of the lyrics sound absurd, especially "eau de resistance". 3/5. - Catacorn

26 Booty - Blac Youngsta

Music made by retards for retards - DaWyteNight

Trash-0/10 - kok2

Uh, what? 0/5 - DCfnaf

27 Ballad of the Lonely Hearts - Black Veil Brides Ballad of the Lonely Hearts - Black Veil Brides
28 Lemon - N.E.R.D & Rihanna

My ears... - ZeroBlaster

This is from 2017 - DaisyandRosalina

Just like 50% of everything on this list. Shows how quiet music has been lately. - allamassal

Not 2018 - kok2

BOUNCIN AROUND BOUNCIN AROUND BOUNCIN. This song is awful, but kind of charming in a so-bad-it's-good kinda way. - Elijah_Cook

29 Thunder - Kidz Bop

They took the hook from before, and somehow made it more unbearable (from changing the pitch of the song, to the knock-off vocal layering/synth patterns).


30 El Baño - Enrique Iglesias

Oh trust me, I'm Spanish and the lyrics suck. Bad Bunny is terrible as always 0/5 - Disx

That means bathroom. Ew. - lovefrombadlands

Not only an awful song, but cringy. - ZeroBlaster

This means THE BATHROOM - AnnieCallie

31 Wild Love - James Bay

James Bay's first two breakout hits were pretty good. Now his long hair is gone, and so is what actually made him a decent singer in the first place. If I wanted this type of song, I'd look at any old 90s teen pop song. - Swellow

Another song smothered in reverb and auto tune to the point where James Bay's voice is almost unrecognisable and the chorus sinks into awful cliches. Just all over yuck. - crowdiegal

Still better than How Long by Charlie Puth (which someone should add to this list because I don't have an account).

32 No Limit - G-Eazy

What is wrong with this song, can someone please tell me - kok2

33 The Middle - Zedd

I used to like it now it's so annoying I scream when I hear it. - AnnieCallie

Ugh, this is "Stay. Part 2" and Maren Morris sounds absolutely AWFUL on this pop song. - crowdiegal

It’s so overplayed

34 Mooky - 6ix9ine

6ix9ine sucks and is a new version of Tyga

35 Meant to Be - Bebe Rexha

I hate Florida Georgia line with a passion... - Elijah_Cook

Aka a collaboration no one wanted or asked for. - JackMM

So annoying, I hate this kind of music. - DaWyteNight

The lyrics don't even make sense.

36 Throw the First Stone - Black Veil Brides Throw the First Stone - Black Veil Brides
37 Rondo - 6ix9ine
38 Never Be the Same - Camila Cabello

This is actually really bad, as someone who's warming up to Camila. - WonkeyDude98

My ears will never be the same after this. Thanks, Camilla! (Obvious sarcasm is obvious.)

Aw I'm sorry for your poor ears...maybe you were already deaf before! - CamilaHavana

This is by far the worst song on Camila's album, it sounds like Camila is trying to impersonate Kate Bush but doesn't quite get there given Camila's terrible higher register. - crowdiegal

I love this song - AnnieCallie

39 Solitaire - Gucci Mane
40 Buba - 6ix9ine

I don't want an album from garbage. - lovefrombadlands

41 Wilson (Expensive Mistakes) - Fall Out Boy Wilson (Expensive Mistakes) - Fall Out Boy

The lyrics sound like they've been written by kindergartners. Oh, and all of the pop culture references in MANIA songs are horrible. 2/5. - Catacorn

This song is awesome! - Elijah_Cook

42 These Days - Rudimental

I miss those DnB days... - ZeroBlaster

43 The Champion - Carrie Underwood

The queen of country crap is back with another bland song. As if Nickelback weren't enough... - CountFritz

44 Champion - Fall Out Boy
45 Bbo (Bad Bitches Only) - Migos

This song is so repetitive and annoying, the lyrics are garbage and this song seems like it's sung by a robot...oh wait, that's Quavo. - lovefrombadlands

46 Gang Gang - Migos
47 Want You Back - 5 Seconds of Summer

I like this to be honest. It's nice. 4/5 - ProPanda

I get the money isn't in rock/punk music anymore because people hate real guitars but this song is a lame excuse to rip off The Chainsmokers at their self aggrandising worst. - crowdiegal

Can't stand this band. - Marine_Soldier

This feels like the Chainsmokers, but 4x worse. They were mediocre at first, but this just took the badness level to a whole new level. - MissRWBY202

48 God's Plan - Drake

Annoying now. Drake should go away because he's even more generic now. - DaWyteNight

Ah yes, here we have the mediocre song that's popular for 1 line. - lovefrombadlands

One of the best rap songs I've heard in a long time. 5/5 - Elijah_Cook

He sounds bored and generic as usual - like he doesn't even enjoy doing this. Yet, this is very popular. If Drake doesn't enjoy himself, perhaps he should find a different career path.
I also blame metallica - ever since they sued napster, talentless fools like this have been plagueing the airwaves. File sharing would've created a more hostile environment for these annoying, talentless wankers

Trippie Redd saved the song - venomouskillingmachine

50 Mi Gente - Kidz Bop Mi Gente - Kidz Bop

Wow they made it even worse. I have no words -1/5 - Disx

Lol it isn't even out yet, but just the fact that people greenlit this in the first place, is already a bad sign of what's to come

Oh my goodness. This exists. - 445956

...Aaaand it's just as bad as I thought it would've been. Who knew?
Thankfully for Kidz Bop, I'm in a good mood, so it's just barely listenable. -5/10
(by the same guy as that "lol it isn't even out yet" comment)
