Top Ten Worst Sounds In The World

What sounds set your teeth on edge and shivers down your body?

The Top Ten

1 Justin Bieber's Voice

I wouldn't know if his voice is bad because I always manage to switch off the radio before he starts warbling. Honestly, I just don't know how I do it... - Britgirl

These Beiber jokes ain't funny anymore. His voice isn't even that bad compared to some other singers. - RiverVibeZ

How is Babies Crying, Little Kids Screaming, and Nails on a Chalkboard worse than Justin Bieber singing? There is no way. - DrayTopTens

Really, this is at number 1? - RadioHead03

2 Crying Babies

I you live in a hotel and the neighbors have a baby and the baby cries then you couldn't sleep all the night - ElSherlock

I mean we were all babies at one point - Randomator

I like crybabies. - Luckys

Every time I go out to eat it is ruined by one crying baby. Ughhh - DrayTopTens

3 Little Kids Screaming

I can't think of a worse sound. - RiverVibeZ

Kids screaming, shouting, cheering etc. I HATE IT, SO IRRITATING. it actually causes PAIN to my ears. should be number 1 on the list.

Especially at the movie theater or a library: - RadioHead03

Justin Bieber singing is better than this - ElSherlock

4 Fingernails Scraping On a Blackboard

I cannot stand this sound - Randomator

Should be at number 1. - RadioHead03

This will hurt - ElSherlock

Oh god no... - RoseWeasley

5 Someone Chewing Gum

Chewing gum is fine but it can be quite irritating when someone else chews gum loudly - Randomator

It sounds annoying - ElSherlock

I don't make noise chewing gum, don't believe me? You have to! - TriggerTrashKid

OH. MY. GOD. EVERYONE in the world seems to be chewing gum, everywhere I go. I walk into class, EIGHT PEOPLE ARE CHEWING GUM RIGHT BEHIND ME. And the REALLY loud chewers are in the back, so you can hear everyone at the same time. I have condition called misophonia, which means gum chewing and some other noises can actually drive me into strong rage and/or panic. It's a living heck. People, be courteous please. I'm not the only person in the world with misophonia, and far from the only person bothered by gum chewing. You're not even supposed to have gum. You're in school. So please, be courteous, and maybe cut off the gum or possibly chew with your mouth closed. - pandagirl

6 Loud Swallowing

Man I could take this in so many dirty ways... - MoldySock

The loud *gulp* followed by tsk-Ah. Kills me.

Seems like a dirty eating machine

This doesn't bother me - jmepa1234

7 Someone Eating a Banana

All the munching, and smacking...
No thanks. - RadioHead03

Can't stomach the noise of a banana sloshing around someone's mouth - especially if they're talking. Yuk! - Britgirl

I immediately dropped my phone and laughed till my sides started to ache - TriggerTrashKid

Dear god this sound... - IceFoxPlayz

True, I hate it when somebody talks to me while eating a banana and here's another worst sound: Somebody making smacking noises with there mouth, I can't stand it :3 - PewDiePie

8 Scraping a Fork Up and Down a Plate

Almost like nails on a chalkboard - Randomator

This sounds bad - ElSherlock

This makes me feel like my teeth is about to fall out

*scratch* *scratch* - TriggerTrashKid

9 Burps

I love burping, when there's nowhere near me. - TriggerTrashKid

Disgusting, even worse when they say how good it was... It makes me nearly puke, sometimes it does!

My mum hates it. - Userguy44


10 Someone Chewing Loudly

I hate these people - Randomator

I HATE the sound of chewing in general, so you guys can probably imagine my extremely unbearable disturbance at LOUD CHEWING! Shut you mouthes people! Learn how to eat with that mouth closed! And after you learn that, teach yourself how to take smaller bits!

My dad does this all the time! Loud as day! It drives me insane! - ResistOppression

Makes me want to throw a rock at the persons head

The Contenders

11 Continuous Sniffing

I have a theory when it comes to sniffing. I rate its just as contagious as yawning, because if I hear someone constantly sniffing I can't help but sniff myself, I sniff even at the thought of someone sniffing, no matter how hard I try to not do it - Danielsun182

One kid I knew did this all the time on the bus, I so badly wanted to shovel sponges in his nose - MACDONALDS

The worst is when someone sniffs and is obviously stuffed up. The wetness of the sound makes me want to puke

I am the guilty criminal for this I'm sad to say - jmepa1234

12 Creaky Door

Creaky doors usually appear in horror movies - ElSherlock

I'm a scaredy cat. So, this one is scary. - TriggerTrashKid

Perfect for horror movie. - Userguy44

It makes me jump every time

13 Someone Drumming Fingers On Desk

Every time

Unless its Neil Peart... - gemcloben

A kid in my class ALWAYS did this. It's so annoying and you can never concentrate. This should seriously be first.

I'm always drumming my fingers along the desk, although I feel quite bad for the people beside me. Just a habit that I can't contain, although sadly - and annoying habit. - Flowersocks2137

14 Farts

You would hate me then. - Userguy44

Facts have an awesome sound. There are different variations. - ArcticPanda

Why are farts here? They're awesome! - DunnaNunnaBatman

These are entertaining! What's worse is the silent but deadly fart! No sound but it smells so bad! It does not smell like teen spirit!

15 Vomiting

Whenever I hear someone vomiting, it makes me wanna vomit too. - RiverVibeZ

It’s sound disgusting it can even make you want to throw up - Honeyreis

Even worser when you vomit on your crush's best dress. Not me! - TriggerTrashKid

Positively disgusting especially because it can be a contagious disease that can come your way. I hate puke, period.

16 Nicki Minaj's Voice

It's WAY worse than Justin Bieber's voice. I don't care what anyone thinks.

She sounds like a woman on testosterone pills. WAY WORSE THAN Bieber's VOICE.

How is this at number 26? It should be way higher.

Worse then nails on a chalkboard now that I think about it

17 Alarm Clock

It's the noise that reminds you to go to school or work every morning

I never set mine - QuarterGuysApprentice

And On A School Day - RockStarr

Some alarms are cool but some are terrible
so yeah

18 Loud Motorbike

Especially if it's early in the morning. - RiverVibeZ

Nothing wrong with it - Randomator

I hate the sound when there is a loud motorbike in a dark place. It's very threatening.

It's so Annoying... REALLY

19 Dog Licking

It’s not that bad - Randomator

This is gross! - saturatedsunrise

My Great Dane sleeps with me at the foot of my bed at night and the licking noises.. OH MY GOD CAN SHE JUST STOP!?! I say her name. She looks at me. I pat her on the head and then lay back down. Glorious silence. Six seconds later... *lick lick lick lick lick lick lick* I need to suffocate myself with my pillow to get some sleep.. -_- Other than that I love her!

20 Airhorn

It’s so annoying - Randomator

By far the most annoying sound I have heard. and its in so many commercials now - MACDONALDS

21 Coronation Street Theme Tune

Hate it so much. But I always found the Spongebob theme more so; since I was six. - PositronWildhawk

That song make my ears bleed. - ArpstaAmy333

I love this show!

22 SpongeBob's Laugh

It gets annoying real quick - Randomator

You start to like it at first, but you'll think its annoying after you hear it 30 times. - EpicJake

It's funny but it gets annoying because he does once and he will just keep on doing it

If SpongeBob do it 6 times it good but too much get annoying watch funny pants so yo might end in the EENT clinic

23 Sirens

Luckily I don’t live in a big city - Randomator

DEE DOO DEE DOO! Oh joy someone is injured.And so is my eardrum because of the cacophony. - Epekov

An anbulance without its siren going was just about to go under a bridge; I thought, then, any second now... I war right. I'm sure they do it for a laugh. - Britgirl

Go to the Philippines. There is a law here where sirens are banned.

This is very annoying! Stop it you attention seekers! But I can only forgive emergency vechicles for doing this. Anyways, I'm happy that siren sounds are banned in my country.

24 Crappy Music

This I can agree with - Randomator

Must be umber 1 - LightningStrike

25 Dentist drill

I think the the dentist drill sound is cool

26 Ice Cream Van Chimes

It's not that bad - DrayTopTens

Aw no. This sound will always be wonderful to me. - RadioHead03

Sorry, I don't want to buy your ice cream. I already have some at home, and how do I know that you're not a creepy pedophile trying to kidnap me? - BlueTopazIceVanilla

It reminds me of my childhood! These sound good! It's not like the annoying childhood theme tunes of nowadays!

27 Fire Alarm

Ah yes the classic way to make you go from being asleep in class to jumping out of your chair in a flash - Randomator

Speaking of heart attacks one time last summer I went to ESY it is like a summer camp I go to 4 hours each day on Monday through Thursday and the fire alarm went off one day when we had a fire drill and when we walked outside a kid in my class named Jason said "that gave me a heart attack."

If they have them, at least turn them down so I won't get a heart attack

Afire alarm killed my 3rd grade teacher's hamster, Sir Oreo Poops-A-Lot. Guess how he died? HEART ATTACK FROM THE ALARM!

28 Armpit Farting
29 A Fly

Wouldn't That Come Under Buzzing?
Anyway Wasps Are Way More Annoying! - RockStarr

30 Dora's Voice

"Dora Dora the explorer" KILL ME NOW! - Icegirl119

Me:Let's see what's on T.V.. DORA OH NO. Dora:Dora the explorer. Me: Shoots T.V.

Dora yells instead of speaks. I knew this would be here - EpicJake

It is so annoying I just want to put duct tape on her mouth to shut her up

31 Car Alarms

Dumb people who just leave their cars screaming down the parking lot! Best cure... Axe!

32 Girls Screaming

Most of them are like a kid's scream mixed with nails on chalkboards.

This thing always happens to me every day. My classmates are just insane lol

33 Mosquito Buzzing
34 Auto-Tune
35 A Cat in Pain

How about you take care of the damn cat instead of listening to it’s pain? - RadioHead03

A cat screaming in agony is one of the most painful and saddest noises to hear!

That's actually a funny sound, funnier than farts. - nelsonerico

It's true, it's a funny sound regardless of how much pain they're in. - nelsonerico

Sorry but that's something a psychopath would say.

36 Fred's Voice

Fred Durst? - Userguy44

Fred was such an annoying little buttface, his voice was ear raping all the time.

37 Super High Pitch Singing
38 Someone Screaming In Agony and Pain

I love it.

I hate everyone, but I can't stand others in pain and agony. This deserves the top spot. Unlike JB's voice, this has been around for millennia and will continue long after he is dead

That really hits me

32nd place? Really? Should be in ten top 20 at least

39 Music by Blood on the Dance Floor

The voices aren't too bad (my opinion) but the lyrics are very innaproprite. I heard "Looking' Hot, Dangerous" and I think I'm scarred for life.

40 Kendrick Lamar's voice

He has a good voice for rapping yall

41 Rebecca Black's Voice Rebecca Black is a YouTube personality and singer who's infamous for her single "Friday," which was once the most disliked video on YouTube. She has also released other songs, including "My Moment" and "Saturday".

Rabbits do that, enough said.

I hate it - Randomator

Calm yourself you aren't a pig

44 Kesha's voice

Now this is a reasonable choice for #1. - saturatedsunrise

45 Someone Rubbing a Balloon

Yeah it can be annoying - Randomator

It sends shivers down my spine! Just have to hope there's a pin nearby!

It's the next thing to fingernails on a chalkboard.

It could pop at any second... XC - NintendoROCK3T

46 Silverware Clinking

Not that bad - Randomator

I despise this noise I want to murder everybody in restaurants!

47 Bomb Explosion

If you were in the presence of a bomb explosion, would the sound be the worst thing? - PositronWildhawk

48 Caillou Crying
49 Rihanna's voice
50 Kidz Bop Kids Singing

They butchered all these classic songs and turned them into, well, CRAP!

I hate this one the most

I prefer little kids singing than this.

Kidz Bop is lit. BACK OFF HATERS!
