Worst Songs to Chart in 2017

Opposite of ryansliao's list. Doesn't have to be released in 2017.

The Top Ten

1 Body Like a Back Road - Sam Hunt

This song is putting people off country music in a big way and that really pisses me off becaue the worst part is that you can barely call "Body Like a Back Road" a country song. Please people, go listen to The Osborne Brothers song "It Ain't My Fault" for real country music not this rubbish which is in no way a country song. - crowdiegal

"I get any girl I want, I don't gotta rape." Congratulations Mr. Black, you officially made the worst possible defense for your rape charges. - spiritofhiphop

5 Bon Appetit - Katy Perry

I took one look at the title and thumbnail for the music video on YouTube and wanted to puke my guts out. Haven't listened to it (and definitely won't) but what a pathetic piece of utter trash.

Oh dear Lord? What is this abomination? I see Katy Perry has taken the route of "aging adult pop star releasing a desperately controversial and scandalous song in order to stay relevant to shock value." It didn't work with Miley Cyrus's "We can't Stop," it didn't work with Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda," it didn't work with Rihanna's "B*tch Better Have My Money," and it most certainly isn't working for Katy Perry here. The lyrics are pathetically desperate and cringeworthy. A bunch of desperate sex metaphors that make references to food. Now it makes me feel uncomfortable eating. Katy Perry's delivery is atrocious. She sounds bad even WITH autotune, it kind of sounds like a frog and Siri had a baby. Migos's verses are even worse and out of place. The beat is unfinished and full of creepy "wa wa wa." And people are DEFENDING this as a feminist anthem? Go listen to BOSS or Dangerous Woman not this which is more antifeminist than most men ...more

The Contenders

11 Despacito - Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee

Oh gosh, this is so overplayed, I actually heard this play on the radio 3 times on one day, no joke. And to screw it even more, my parents keep turning up the volume to this song and leave it on. Luckily I have my phone to listen to Blink-182 and Tom DeLonge instead of that overplayed trash.

No that is okay, you can like the original. My parents also like the original more than the Justin Bieber version, he did ruin the song.

Two words: SO ANNOYING! It is THE most overplayed and overrated song ever! There are better songs that should be #1 like Stay and Crying In The Club. But instead all the trash like DESPACITO get put on a pedestal and the good songs get pushed aside

Ay! Please. Stop. This! *gets my watch and plays Linkin Park* There

It's so overplayed which is annoying

14 I Don't Wanna Live Forever - Zayn & Taylor Swift UListen to Sample
15 Closer - The Chainsmokers

Where do I even begin? I miss songs like Roses, Don't Let Me Down and New York City. Everything was fine with the Chainsmokers up until Closer when Drew started to sing for some reason. In the end, this song sounds like he's trying really hard to sing but can't so he just slurs his lyrics together kinda like a drunk mental patient. The chorus is crap, it's just a crappy beat drop. Halsey's verse is even worse, she sounds like a drunk mental patient choking on paper. The only mediocre part of the song is the bridge when they come close to actually SINGING and not sounding like drunk mental patients. And this trash pile of a song SOMEHOW stayed at #1 for 12 WEEKS keeping good songs like Bad Things and I Don't Wanna Live Forever away from the top spot, and is SOMEHOW STILL on the charts at #23. That means it's gonna play on the radio for another 578,543,765,900,123 WEEKS. Another Drew sing song, Paris is #19 and looks like it's gonna be another top spot clogger for 24,456,123,800 WEEKS. ...more

This song seriously charted?
If I make a song using pots and pens, will it chart? - wrests

Wait just a damn second, THIS actually CHARTED?

It's official. The apocalypse is beginning. Enjoy your last few hours guys. - DCfnaf

Sounds like another dumb rap where they show twerking and then some rap guy dancing and swearing in the music video and then overuse bad memes.

Awful. - Lunala

22 I'm the One - DJ Khaled

You know what? The more I hear this song, the more respect I lose for it. And it's not just because of Justin Bieber. The beat is so damn lazy and not even finished, then the DJ had to yell his name out loud, like SHUT UP, you're SUPPOSED TO STAY BEHIND THE COMPUTER. Then there's Quavo (the man responsible for ruining Know No Better), and Lil Wayne, and Chance the Rapper who HAVE to use autotune and STILL sound bad. Justin Bieber's delivery is obnoxious, he sounds like Siri and a donkey had a baby. But apparently, the radio thinks that an unfinished and repetitive song with terrible lyrics is good, so it gets played CONSTANTLY. And the charts seem to agree with the radio, so it SOMEHOW stays in the top 3 for weeks, debuting at #1, and STILL at #3! It keeps good songs like Stay, It Ain't Me, and Crying In The Club AWAY from that spot. Another awful Justin Bieber song "2U" is currently #1 on iTunes, and it looks like it's gonna be another top 3 clogger for 213,678,684,123,984 weeks.

Where do I even begin? I was actually starting to like biebers music when he released Company and I like SOME OF his purpose album. But ill NEVER be a belieber because he's too damn easy to hate as a person. But anyways, everything was fine with Bieber up until he released THIS. In the end this song sounds like he's trying to rap, but can't and he just RELIES on autotune, so he kinda slurs his lyrics together like a mental patient. The chorus is crap, he sounds like a drunk mental patient choking on paper. Plus when you add it up by featuring Wayne and Quavo (the WORST rappers ever), it kinda sucks. The beat is crap, DJ Khaled is the WORST EDM DJ EVER along with the Chainsmokers and David Guetta. The only good part of the song is...oh right there IS none. And this trash pile of a song SOMEHOW stayed at #1 for WEEKS keeping good songs like Stay and It ain't Me away from there.

23 Mo Bounce - Iggy Azalea

Not only is this song so stupid and useless, it's also a big problem with the benefit of modern music. Iggy, stop it. People are asking for GOOD music. That means no insulting lyrics, no annoying beats, make the music work have good sound, and if optional make them like you are getting goosebumps, and no gross sex talk! THIS SONG A PROBLEM OF LIFE!

This is atrocious. - DaisyandRosalina

24 Strip That Down - Liam Payne

Oh dear Lord? What is this abomination? I see Liam Payne has decided to try too hard to be "sexy," in order to get in with the "cool artists" (by cool artists I mean all those crappy mainstream rappers whom everyone THINKS are cool, but they're NOT). Everything was fine with Liam up until he went solo, and he released THIS. In the end this song sounds like he's trying to rap, but can't, so he throws in a bunch of creepy unsexy lyrics about having sex with strippers. The chorus is crap, he sounds like a druggie when he sings it. And then it HAD to feature Quavo who SUCKS at rapping, and is responsible for ruining Know No Better by Major Lazer. The only good part of the song is the prechorus when Liam actually comes close to SINGING and not sounding like a druggie. And this trash pile of a song SOMEHOW stayed at #1 on iTunes, keeping good new entries like Bad Liar and Crying In The Club away from there. Honestly, if you want good solo 1D music, buy Harry's album, ZAYN's album, and ...more

So glad this is on the list.

Another one direction member trying to be cool and relevant. I mistook "Sign of the times" for an old lady singing the first time I heard it. I'm not kidding.

Anyways, this "song" is just another sex-filled piece of boring crap. It's obviously a talentless sexual song and the voice is extremely irritating. It sounds like Justin Bieber, a chipmunk and boring, cheesy autotune effects fused together.

One of 2017's worst songs.

Go listen to songs like "Symphony" where they put TALENT and effort into it, the voices are good, the meaning is good, it's not cheesy, etc. - Lunala

Thank GOD Liam cleaned up his act with his new song with ZEDD! Listen to that instead of Strip That Down!

I love Liam...but this song should be HIGHER! It's trash...autotuned and full of terrible lyrics! To think that there are seven-year olds singing "girl I love it when your body grinds on me..." no...just no.

25 Bodak Yellow - Cardi B

This is a song on the charts now. Please shoot me in the chest. - DCfnaf

When I first saw it on the charts, I had to play a sample. Nonsense title, nonsense stage name, bland lyrics about "MONEY MOVES" that don't even have to do with whatever the hell "Bodack Yellow" is. I think we may have found the lost female Migos member on our hands, singing the next "Bad and Boujee"

I hated it at first just by that chorus lol

Now I see the lyrics as both bad and good. 5/10 - StarlightSpanks

Where do I begin? I hear this song at least once a day on the radio even though its # 37 on the charts and River by Eminem and Ed Sheeran IS NUMBER 16 AND I haven't HEARD IT ONCE what

Whenever I hear this “song” I want Darth Vader to come and slowly force choke me. Seriously. Its all bad, the content, the beat production, everything! Take away all the braggadociosness and you’ll have approximately 5% of content left! Sounds pretty much like most new wave rap songs. Unsurprisingly, it uses a generic trap beat, once again like most mainstream rap. I like to think that this song is a parody of today’s rap because I can’t imagine the possiblity that a human formed these lyrics with their mind and actually sang them. I think Cardi B is a narcissist and needs mental help! Even Donald Trump wouldn’t write lyrics this arrogant!
