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

Why is this first voted? Sure his voice is bad, but there are far more worse sounds. - Userguy44

Because of the Bieber of being overhated that it starts to become a nuisance, but that's started to diminish as years passed by - Kevinsidis

Laugh out loud :D but true...

He should get the worst voice award soon

2 Crying Babies

Will drive anyone insane from less than a few minutes. - illusion

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

My cousin (who lives in the same apartment as me) has got a 2-month-old baby, and her cries are the worst. They literally drive me to insanity. And once when my dad was looking after her, I obviously complained. And you know what? My dad yelled at me! The cries hurt my ears every time, they are so piercing. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

This deserves to be higher than Justin Bieber's voice honestly even though I don't care about his voice.

I always get SO ANNOYED when I hear the sound of babies crying but for justin bieber's songs I don't mind his voice is not annoying.. - Lucy1402

3 Little Kids Screaming

I would rather get tortured and die painfully than listen to this noise! - DrayTopTens

This is my 2-year-old cousin in a nutshell. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

I would better jump off a cliff. - TriggerTrashKid

Almost the same as baby's screaming. A disgusting sound! - Userguy44

4 Fingernails Scraping On a Blackboard

It sounds just like little kids screaming - DrayTopTens

Think about it, being trapped in a room with that noise playing on a radio non-stop - FuffleyandPeetah

*screech* - TriggerTrashKid

I haven't heard it before but my mom says it is really bad the voice you see here and scraping a knife on a bottle are both annoying not only because they are sharp what makes them really annoying and scary is that we remember a hunter from the time of human ancestors that fearing that creature was really important so it is saved in our DNA memory and we still fear these voices

5 Someone Chewing Gum

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

Its rude and annoying. I don't understand why you have to chew your gum so loudly... I don't see you eating other food that way..

Try having 3 girls CHOMPING gum with their mouths WIDE open right next to you at the same table and concentrating in class so that you don't fail! - Icegirl119

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

Dear god this sound... - IceFoxPlayz

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

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

If you don't mind me asking, how does someone eating a banana make sound?... That came out so wrong. - PlatinumTheHitgirl

9 Burps

My dad burps way too much. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

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

My mum hates it. - Userguy44

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

10 Someone Chewing Loudly

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!

Probably the most unpleasant sound to hear in opinion. - illusion

My parents do this. I have told them so, but they don't stop. It's REALLY gross. And aren't parents supposed to teach manners? - galaxyfox

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

? SpongeBob Crying

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

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

Perfect for horror movie. - Userguy44

It makes me jump every time

Nothing bad, just a bit spooky. - Undistinguished

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

My mother farts WAY too much, sometimes it's her response to things I say. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

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

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

15 Vomiting

Makes me want to stop eating my meal altogether. - illusion

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.

This ruined nachos for me because someone vomited nachos on my lap

Justin Bieber is way worse you idiot - RockStarr

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

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.

24 Armpit Farting
25 Sirens

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.

Sirens are actually more to scary as sirens just means something bad is probably happening,like air-raid sirens or fire alarms and others...

26 Dentist drill

I think the the dentist drill sound is cool

27 Fire Alarm

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!

Those Fire Alarms scare the Crap out of you in school drills Because either your not expecting it or Your Class is Right by one of the Alarms!

I understand it's importance but Good lord they're loud! - Curti2594

28 Ice Cream Van Chimes

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!

It gets really annoying - Ajkloth

Shut up you shameless, retarded *****, Ice Cream van chimes are soothing who ever added this to the list is more evil than bagpipes.

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

30 Auto-Tune

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

32 Car Alarms

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

33 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

34 A Cat in Pain

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.

35 Fred's Voice

Fred Durst? - Userguy44

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

36 Mosquito Buzzing
37 People Crying

It depends on how old they are. - DrayTopTens

Well, they can't help it, so don't give the criers the blame - EpicJake

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'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".

It's friday friday

From what exactly, actually I don't want to know - RustyNail

Calm yourself you aren't a pig

43 Kesha's voice

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

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

45 Silverware Clinking

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

46 Bomb Explosion

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

47 Caillou Crying
48 Rihanna's voice
49 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!
