Worst Songs by Good Artists


The Top Ten

1 Fack - Eminem

Per the visitor, did Eminem really do this? Did Eminem really make a song worse than Nicki Minaj's Anaconda? - WonkeyDude98

I think someone other than Eminem did this

Still better than anything from Drake

Not Afraid is his only good song. - 445956

Madonna did a crap job in this one. though she's better than Nicki Minaj. NM did a better job in this one. - AlphaQ

4 Revolution 9 - The Beatles

Not bad, per say, just weird and forgettable, yoko ono brainwashed john

It's trash! - Userguy44

5 Fear - X Ambassadors

But...X Ambassadors sucks. like, they're awful.

6 This Summer's Gonna Hurt Like a MotherF****r - Maroon 5

2015 wasn't such a good year for Maroon 5 besides they aren't so good now - AlphaQ

7 Work - Rihanna
8 Hey, Soul Sister - Train

This song is good! - ProPanda

9 Cool for the Summer - Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato SUCKS! This song is worse than FACK and I really hate it too

This song is all about sex, I don't like sexs.

The Contenders

11 Bugs - Pearl Jam
12 Beverly Hills - Weezer
13 Ashtrays and Heartbreaks - Snoop Lion

Much better than heavy! Why is it on the list? - Userguy44

Wait what this is one of his best songs

I agree with this, but me and my friends actually enjoy listening to Fack and The Messenger - Danielsun182

I was never a fan of Rihanna in the first place.

18 P**** Wet - Marilyn Manson
19 Frantic - Metallica
20 Nightlife - Green Day
21 St. Anger - Metallica
22 Just a Lil Bit - 50 Cent
23 Who Killed It - Nas

Nas isn't that good anyway

24 Iron Gland - Alice In Chains
25 Rumor Has It - Adele
26 Something Just Like This - Coldplay

This song is good! - Userguy44

27 Danny Says - Foo Fighters
28 Hip-Hop is Dead - Nas

Nas messed up this song SO DAMN MUCH I think this is worse the FACK but this should be #2 (just under FACK) because Eminem is better than Nas but Nas is quite decent

Like I said before, this is an absolute travesty, even as a NAS fan. - WonkeyDude98

29 Thinking Out Loud - Ed Sheeran

Seriously? I thought this was his most popular one. I don't think he's capable of making a bad song.

30 Where R Ü Now - Skrillex
31 The Messenger - Linkin Park

Linkin Park isn't good to start with. - AlphaQ

32 Rest - Green Day
33 Fitter Happier - Radiohead

I find this one to be pretty cool, it isn't much of song, but it is extremely chilling and unnerving. If you want to talk about a bad Radiohead song, look no further than How Do You? or Ripcord. - kempokid

This isn't even a song - Rorywilbren

@Rorywilbren Yes it is - jack2244

34 P***y - Lupe Fiasco

Probably an example of so bad it's good. - WonkeyDude98

35 Teenage Dream - Katy Perry
36 We Are the World - U.S.A. for Africa

I LOVE THIS! - ProPanda

37 Phenomenal - Eminem

This was OKAY. Wasn't as good as it the other songs but it's was decent. 3.5/5 - AlphaQ

This song was OKAY

38 Birthday Cake - Rihanna

Rihanna is really talented and not too dirty (unlike Nicki Minaj) but I have no idea what happened with this song. I'm sure The worst song by a good artist is definitely FACK by Shady but Birthday Cake is just #2.

I honestly feel disgusted and have no clue what is going on. Besides why would she invite Chris Brown who's a huge jerk to Rihanna. I don't know.

The lyrics are EXTREMELY awful compared to the rest of Rihanna's song. Her tunes are usually bouncy and catchy like Fetty Wap but this one was just as bad as 7 Years.

Please never do a song like this. AND NEVER PAIR UP WITH CHRIS BROWN.

Sorry everyone but this just gets a 0/5 - AlphaQ

39 All for You - Imagine Dragons
40 Carouselambra - Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin isn't good to begin with. - AlphaQ

41 #Twerkit - Busta Rhymes
42 I Belong to You - Muse
43 Royals - Lorde

Well, technically, this is the "worst" song by a good artist, but that's saying a lot, because this is still good. - WonkeyDude98

44 Ancestors - BJÖRK
45 My 1st Single - Eminem

The beat sounds like it was performed using a few dentures, and Eminem literally farts and burps the chorus, while the lyrics are nonsensical. - Martin_Canine

46 Car Radio - Twenty One Pilots
47 Show Me Yo' Booty Hole - Saosin
48 Shiny Happy People - R.E.M.
49 Style - Taylor Swift

You seriously think this is her worst song? Listen to Look What You Made Me Do, which everyone says is her worst song. - allamassal

50 F**kin' Problems - A$ap Rocky

This is pretty good. I don't know if A$AP Rocky is considered a good artist but I know Kendrick Lamar is and he didn't do a good job.

But hey this was decently done. Besides I realized something: 2 Chainz is so bad he's only allowed to rap the chorus of every song.

But anyway I kinda like this so maybe. 4.5/5 - AlphaQ
