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

I told people that's what the song was about and nobody believed me. - AnnieCallie

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

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

The ranking on this list for worst songs of 2018 is really accurate. - AnimeDrawer

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

I don’t like this song but it gets stuck in my head so much. It has catchy lyrics but not a song I would want to listen to twice. - NightJinx

3 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

Horrid "rapping", horrid production. - floral

Thought I'd take a listen. At first I was like 'well what's the fuss about' and then the beat drops. I'm a massive EDM fan and I disapprove - Aquaturtle

4 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

This song is so pathetic that it's insulting... - SomePersonYouHate

5 Billy - 6ix9ine

The amount of times he screams the n-word is still ridiculous. - StarlightSpanks

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

Basically Koda but more violent and nearly as obnoxious as Gummo. Day69 is now the worst album of the year. - AlphaQ

This is worse than Gummo in my opinion. - AliciaMae

6 Freaky Friday - Lil Dicky

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

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

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

Why is the video for this song everywhere I go? - AnimeDrawer

7 Sad! - Xxxtentacion

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

Nah, mate. They're on the same level. One is already stuck with him, the other one is fictional and has the chance to leave. - PhenomentalOne

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

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

This is with no question my worst song of 2018. The lyrics, instrumentation and vocals are awful. I'm actually glad he's dead.

8 Keke - 6ix9ine

I'm listening to this absolute trash pile of a song as I write this. 6ix9ine is becoming my most despised name in music, and this song is one of the reasons why. -3/10 - allamassal

This sucks so hard. - ZeroBlaster

Fetty Wap and Boogie saved this from receiving negative stars. 1/5 - AlphaQ

Even with Fetty Wap and Boogie, this still sucks big-time. -1/5 - StarlightSpanks

V 3 Comments
9 Meant to Be - Bebe Rexha

It's so redneck that it hurts.

It's like the song can't decide between being mainstream pop and country.

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

Most annoying song of 2018 - THICCBOI

V 19 Comments
10 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

Taylor tried to be the Old Taylor once again, and once just hesitated to stop. We got this piece of crap that is this song. I actually used to like this song until the real definition. It's just no... Future's recognition really does not fit in. Could've chosen Kendrick Lamar. Mumble rap is just confusing and Taylor Swift is just making me dizzy when Future comes in. Taylor, do yourself a favor and try to make this without Future. I bet this wouldn't go good though since the definition is dreadful. - MissRWBY202

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

Garbage taylor swift pop thing - THICCBOI

The Newcomers

? Level Up - Ciara
? You are Out - Lama Doodle

The Contenders

11 Kooda - 6ix9ine

Why is this song bad?
1. It's by 6ix9ine.
2. That's all I can think of. - CloudInvasion

Not quite as bad as his previous songs, but that says nothing at all. - floral

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

Stop screaming the n word! - AnnieCallie

12 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!

All of their songs sound exactly the same. But this one is cringy from the title alone. - DCfnaf

Emoji a chain is my favorite mento flavor. - AnnieCallie

V 13 Comments
13 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 lyrics. 2.5/5. - Catacorn

V 5 Comments
14 The Middle - Zedd

This is literally the same song as Stay.

This is a rip off of stay. It sounds like the last piece of pop music trying to survive even though pop is dead

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

Stay rehash but kinda catchy - Patronus

V 9 Comments
15 God's Plan - Drake

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

"I only love my bed and my momma I'm sorry" are you serious how is this on the hot charts little less #1 bunch of crap Drake has no idea what he is doing on this song might as well trash his career...
But look alive is lit

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

Way overplayed

16 I Like It - Cardi B

Why do people like Cardi B? Her voice is so insufferably annoying. - phillysports

The title is the opposite of my opinion on the song.

It is the top song this summer 2018! You guys hate it because it has Cardi B. Not everyone sings songs badly. Shame on you for you haters of this song!

No, not everyone has to like a song just because it is successful. It's called an opinion. - allamassal

Half the stuff she says she likes, she is just being a greedy batch (replace “a” with “I”), As this “lit” garbage is just some stupid flex anthem everybody is hyping over. Plus, for no apparent reason, we have to have some Spanish guy autotune himself to the max, to make the “Latin” flavor more relevant in this crap vessel of a generic ass trap rap crap song. Even though this is one of cardi’s less gross songs, it still has one of her most cringeworthy lyrics:

“Oooh I need the dollars
Beat It Up Like Piñata”

Just hearing her yell those words off key makes me C.R.I.N.G.E.😣

I hate to even think what “beating a piñata” REALLY means. Cardi Farti

17 Helluvit - Tom Macdonald

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

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

This is commercial rap that doesn't look in the mirror yet says that commercial rap is terrible

bravo, it's the 500th white rapper to do this type of music in 2018 - Satire

Old McDonald is back with more cringeworthy moments and here’s a helluvit. - AlphaQ

18 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

This is what happens when you've taken the oath to cover popular songs but never consider the actual quality of the song. - PhenomentalOne

Well then... - isaaonrtdmtr

Kidz bop suz - Lunala

19 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

20 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

The most annoying and overplayed song of 2018! To be honest,I love Say Something by A Great Big World better than this.

21 Sick Boy - The Chainsmokers

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

You know what, go listen to some twenty one pilots, the band this song tries to rip off. You need that, not this whiny brat trying to be political. - PhenomentalOne

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

I am a bit upset, they obviously took a little to much inspo from my boys Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, but I can't been 100% mad because I think it's still good. :/

Boring - Patronus

V 2 Comments
22 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

23 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

I love Fall Out Boy, but this song is just bad. In fact the whole album sucked. - CharismaticKat

What’s tragic about this song is that it sounds really good, and then the god-awful beat drop comes in and then you wished this song was over. Also the music video makes no sense.

24 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

Cardi B sucks. She sounds like a dying cat, she is so overrated and she tries to be all "feminist-badass and cool" but is just another pop-hoe who makes dumb sexual songs. - Patronus

I like this song. - Not_A_Weeaboo

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

To be honest all Kidz Bop songs suck


No I am not. - isaaonrtdmtr

26 Psycho - Post Malone & Ty Dolla $ign

I swear, this garbage is getting worse every time I hear it. There is even a line that says "Lil' mama bad like Michael", a reference to Michael Jackson (who is probably rolling in his grave being mentioned in a song like this). 1/10 - allamassal

This is fine. - floral

27 Bitch I’m Bella Thorne - Bella Thorne

Wait, was this a joke song? Because when I listened to it, I laughed so hard I cried... no, actually, I just cried, because this is the definition of garbage.

Without a doubt one of the worst songs of all time, even her own fans hate this. - cringebinge

I don't want to listen. Salad dressing was UNFORGIVABLE. - AnnieCallie

This is crap - AliciaMae

28 Church - Fall Out Boy Church - Fall Out Boy
29 Too Much Jewelry - Migos

Yeah, I like Migos too. - The01Bro

You are not alone Alpha. by the way one of the best songs from Culture II 4/5 - Disx

I feel like the only one here who can tolerate Migos… - AlphaQ

30 Rockstar - Post Malone

Great song, plus it's from 2017. - ZeroBlaster

Boring generic rap song, also that brick-clinking beat in the background gets on my nerves. - Patronus

''Post Malone think he's Rockstar? But Malone where is that guitar? ''
It's ridiculous to call yourself a Rockstar if you have no guitar and never played one, the song should've been called Post-star makes the right precision. Lyrics are like that of a poser rubbing cash in your face showing how much he's got with all the things he can buy with everyone's tax money.

This song is great - AnnieCallie

31 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

All these crappy FOB songs are worse than Gucci Gang. - AlphaQ

32 Booty - Blac Youngsta

Music made by idiots for idiots. - DaWyteNight

This is worse than Gucci Gang - venomouskillingmachine

33 The Light is Coming - Ariana Grande

I never even thought I'd find something as bad as Meant To Be or Freaky Friday, but now I've found it. Sadly it's from the artist who showed great potential in her previous single.
First off, what's up with that lame beat? What's up with Pharrell Williams producing this horribly? What's up with Nicki Minaj being so dull and godawful simultaneously? And most importantly, what's up with Ariana not even trying in this? Side To Side was bad enough but I never thought I'd find something close to being this bad. I used to see Ariana as "an amazing singer who wastes her talent" and now I've nearly changed my mind on the first part. This is a spoiled abomination that I hope never hits the Hot 100 as a promotional single. -1/10 - StarlightSpanks

At first I wondered what all the hate on this song was about, but then I listened to it and realized that it is just AWFUL, especially from the same artist who made the masterpiece known as No Tears Left to Cry. Especially the part where she is just talking, saying "The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole". I listened to Gasoline by Halsey after that, in the hopes of getting that part out of my head. I rate that song 10/10 and this abomination 0/10. - allamassal

Jeez what is this garbage? I can't believe that this was released after "No Tears Left To Cry".Just a random idiotic dude trying too hard to be heard above Ariana's high pitched voice saying"And you won't let anybody speak".It makes"Solo"by Clean Bandit look like"Total Eclipse of the Heart"by Bonnie Tyler.My rating for this is 0/5. - Hellohi

This is the worst song in history. ok, maybe not that bad, but still the worst song of 2018 at the very least - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

34 Look Alive - BlocBoy JB

I like the beat, but Drake's monotone voice is just torturous to listen to. It seems that with each year that passes Drake sounds more boring and uninspired. The 'So Far Gone' days are now just a distant memory. - DaWyteNight

35 The King of Pain - Black Veil Brides The King of Pain - Black Veil Brides
36 Ice on My Wrist - Lil Flexer

This is the worst song by the worst rapper on the worst beat. The song is literally just "ice on my wrist, gucci gucci". This song makes Lil Pump look like a Scholar - THICCBOI

37 Ballad of the Lonely Hearts - Black Veil Brides Ballad of the Lonely Hearts - Black Veil Brides

It's BVB. Don't have high expectations. - isaaonrtdmtr

38 Lemon - N.E.R.D & Rihanna

I love Rihanna but... she can do better - Aquaturtle

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

39 El Baño - Enrique Iglesias

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

It honestly sounds like something nigahiga would've written to make fun of Spanish love songs. - CloudInvasion

The sound of the song isn't really bad, it's just forgettable. The lyrics, on the other hand... - floral

We want old Enrique Iglesias.

40 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

This song is so annoying. Even worse it's overplayed as hell. - CharismaticKat

42 Captain Out of Tune - Lil Mosquito Disease
43 Solo - Clean Bandit

I am really shocked at how bad this song turned out given Clean Bandit were responsible for songs like "Symphony" and "Rockabye", the production on this song is really awful, chipmunk fragments and sounds that don't go with anything in the song. It's a wonder Demi Lovato found the room to sing on the song. - crowdiegal

Lovato actually admitted she was back on the drugs when she did this - which would explain a lot. It sounds like a kid playing with noises on a keyboard, a drug addled girl attempting to sing, a record producer with a laptop did some editing, & voila! This is the result

This song is stupid.

1. It's an obvious sex song which automatically sucks because I'm asexual and I'm sick of obvious sex songs on the radio. You know when KIDS might be in the car?

2. The seal noises in the chorus are so annoying that I want to punch a baby in the face and saw off my ears with a weedwhacker every time I hear them. - Patronus

It's a sex song with a very juvenile approach to sex if I can be blunt! - crowdiegal

Who the hell thought that it was a good idea to surround Demi’s “singing” with the most annoying noises, repeated over and over again? This makes those horrible chipmunk vocals from Imagine Dragons’s “Thunder” look picture-perfect. 1/10 - StarlightSpanks

44 Dinero - Jennifer Lopez

This is a pretty forgettable Latin pop track. Nothing about it stands out as particularly awful. - floral

I've only listened to a bit of this garbage and already it's my least favorite song. 0/10. EDIT: Scratch that, I've found a new least favorite song, and it's worse than Dinero, and it ALSO has Cardi B on it. - allamassal

Three awful "artists" on one song (if DJ Khaled even counts as an artist) - DaWyteNight

This has Cardi B on it and this already too sounds much like her song “I Like It”

45 Mooky - 6ix9ine

6ix9ine sucks and is a new version of Tyga

46 September - Taylor Swift

She ruined a beautiful classic with this constipated goat cover - THICCBOI

Cardi b beat her record. - AnnieCallie

47 Heaven’s Gate - Fall Out Boy Heaven’s Gate - Fall Out Boy

Love it

48 Thunder - Kidz Bop

Better than the original haha - floral

"Thunder" is an annoying song
Now its worse - Lunala

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).
