Top 10 Worst Things About the Music In 2015

The Top Ten

1 Too many bland, boring, and dull songs about sex

There are good ones, too. The music industry just overly exposes this dirty minority of pop songs, that's why.

Sadly, now this is the usual, every year there are bound to be lots of these - Martinglez

I prefer music that is underrated or old... - InfernoTopTenners

Hotline bling is just too boring. - SamuiNeko

2 Justin Bieber is making a comeback

He's one of the only parasites that came back into the mainstream.

I've been much more accepting and less critical of all music lately so don't be surprised to read this: I think it's alright. - Songsta41

And he's blander now - Martinglez

Hide in a box, people. We must rote the ourselves. (😋)

3 Paul McCartney did a song with Kayne West

Paul, I know you want to stay relevant. But isn't keeping your great reputation much more important? - Songsta41

Pretty sure Paul only did this to get a laugh about all of Kanye's clueless fans asking who is this Pual dude?

Paul gets NO credit for this song. Though hey! He was singing, just backup, I think.

And now Kanye's working with James Blake. And Moby and Miley happened too. Faith in humanity destroyed, Mobes pun unintended. - PositronWildhawk

4 Too much Autotune

Autotune sometimes makes their voice weird and robotic to me. - InfernoTopTenners

"No Lil Wayne autotune is not an instrument."- Squidward - Cheese567

Autotune isn't all that bad, if used properly.

I would like to know if there are any singers who do not use autotune

5 Nobody will shut up about the song Watch Me's dance move "Whip and Nae Nae"

My whole hood school always do this everyday! Never stop it doing! This song is a crap because of auto tone. - InfernoTopTenners

Oh my gosh! The day my sister got home from dance after her teacher played that song I was ready to kill her and him! - letdot52

Just wait, it will die out eventually. The old days had popular overused dances too, just so you know. by the way, I like the song but I don't do the dance. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

This is the stupidest thing ever. Gangnam Style is way better than this crap.

6 Songs that are actually good are being hated on just because they're overplayed

Uptown funk is the biggest example of this.

I really love the song "see you again",it reminded of a few friends... - SamuiNeko

Three words. Shake it off. It's a great song, but it's just very overrated and over played. Enough said.

"Hello" by Adele is a great example of this. - MontyPython

7 Not a lot of good popular rock songs

Rock, in general, is slowly dying. It's heartbreaking. All the good things to come from The Beatles and for what? It's all in vain if music continues in the direction it's going in. - BKAllmighty

Why does Linkin Park take so long to release new albums!?!? - Cheese567

I want Linkin Park to release an album! They're the best bands ever! - InfernoTopTenners

If the next generation can't appreciate rock, it will die. We can't let that happen - Songsta41

We've got Breaking Benjamin's "Failure" top the Billboard 200, but it isn't much popular in the mainstream.

8 Less meaning in songs

No. I'm sorry, but this list only looks at one side of the spectrum. There have been some absolutely fantastic songs and albums this year. I would list but that would bore you. Just check my comments and remixes on various 2015 music lists. - IronSabbathPriest

I guess you're right. Maybe I should've been more specific with the title and call it, "Worst Things About Popular Music in 2015". There ARE plenty of great songs and artists this year, but my problem with them is, they're too overshadowed. - MontyPython

Well there are a lot of songs with deep meanings, like songs by The Eden Project, but they aren't as overplayed as the songs you might have had in mind there - DubstepLover

"See you again" is meaningful,"hotline bling" is trash. - SamuiNeko

The song "fancy" is arrogant, And "freak of the week" has no meaning even in the title.

9 Mass production of mediocrity

That sounds like what's happening, yes. I'd call that mostly accurate. - BKAllmighty

10 Too much repetition of the hook

The Contenders

11 The Weeknd is gaining popularity

Can't Feel My Face isn't that bad, however.

If I hear their song ONE MORE TIME, you don't want to know what happens! - RebelGamer

I actually genuinely like The Hills - Songsta41

I thought he was pretty cool at first, now he's just obnoxious. - MRniceguy583

12 Demi Lovato's music is going downhill

Her song was great 2 years ago. Now, its sound boring and uncreative. I like heart attack and neon lights. - InfernoTopTenners

From heart attack to cool for the summer.
From wearing awesome to wearing nothing.
From awesome song to bad song.

13 Too much "whoa oh oh"

Well, even when I listen to 80's music, this phrase can still be found more than you think. It's not just 2015, people. Singers have used this phrase for decades because they're too lazy to come up with actual lyrics. - RockFashionista

I think this phrase fits much better in Alternative music - SamuiNeko

I hate that phrase! - InfernoTopTenners

14 No talent
15 Taylor Swift got two #1 hits
16 Shawn Mendes got a top 10 hit

I hate this kid so much

17 The beats

The beats are dull and it doesn't have effects and beat structure.

You should listen to electronic music like melody dubstep, trap, progessive, techno, trance,and edm than dubstep. - InfernoTopTenners

18 Adele making music again

Comparing her music to most popular songs today (except Bruno Mars) she is excellent. In fact I know a guy who says Adele is as bad, if not worse, than Justin Bieber - Martinglez

Adele isn't bad compared to others, but her songs are always playing on the radio

I like Adele, but Hello is such an overrated song. I switch the station whenever it comes on. - MRniceguy583

What's wrong with Adele? I love her music. It's what I listen to when I need to reduce anxiety. - RockFashionista

19 The lyrics structure

The lyrics keep repeating and has little bit meaningness. - InfernoTopTenners

20 Way too many inappropriate messages and sayings

Does anyone here at all agree with me? If you want my true and honest opinion, the best music came from the Beatles and Mungo Jerry. They sang songs that had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about sex, love, rapping, screaming, and extremely bad cuss words. The music today in 2015 is extremely outrageous. Most rappers and rock stars are dumb and have stupidity in them, because they think people actually enjoy that kind of crap and they think they are so hot and cool and are the party of the world, or should I say the light of the Earth. I'm basically describing Justin Bieber right now. He is a total show off. I wish we could get the good music back. It was so much better...

21 "Cheerleader" hit #1

Hey, OMI? A "cheerleader" isn't always right there when you need her, and it was only the Feilix Jahen (or something) Remix that actually made the public think the song is good!

I hate that song with a burning passion. I hate u Omi, I hope that u will never make a song again.

22 Too many songs about booty

Wasn't that last year?

23 Poor production standards
24 Bad mixing
25 People complaining about it
