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

2 Juju on That Beat - Zay Hilfigerrr & Zayion McCall

This is getting old now... - Entranced98

Lmao when someone played this on the radio I saw someone attempt to break the radio. - wrests

3 Guys My Age - Hey Violet
4 Cold - Maroon 5
5 Don't Wanna Know - Maroon 5

Remember when this song was seriously overplayed? - EpicJake

6 I Don't Wanna Live Forever - Zayn & Taylor Swift
7 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran

Tropical House needs to go away. - NiktheWiz

Ed Sheeran, I'm very disappointed in you. - EpicJake

8 Bad and Boujee - Migos
9 Bad Things - Machine Gun Kelly & Camila Cabello
10 1-800-273-8255 - Logic

The Contenders

11 Tunnel Vision - Kodak Black
12 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

Get To Number One Please, VideoGamefan5

13 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. - AnimeDrawer

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. - AnimeDrawer

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

It's so overplayed which is annoying

Oh god! This song has been on #1 on UK top 40 for LONG ENOUGH NOW! It's so annoying, that me, my dad and my bro literally made a parody - ABBURIDO, WHICH MEANS BORING. Yes, its fun singing Abburido over the overplayed words of an overplayed song. Imagine if the 'bam-bam' bit was actually 'bum-bum' and when Luis Fonsi saw Daddy Yankee saying this then he would shoot him in the head and he would DIE. Then Luis Fonsi would kill himself and when Justin Beiber finds them dead then he kills himself. I hate this song, I even heard from someone it played on the radio every three songd! Seriously!

14 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

We also had to put up with this in the latter half of 2016, unfortunately. - Entranced98

Nobody should like this uninteresting glob of vomit

TAKE. THIS. TO. THE. TOP. ALREADY. - PhenomentalOne

15 Ooouuu - Young M.A.
16 Cash Me Outside - DJ Suede The Remix God

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

17 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.

18 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

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.

So cringy
