Top 10 Worst Things About the Music In 2015

MontyPython

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

Bland, boring, and dull? Usually. The inappropriate factor is toned down overall from last year outside of exceptions (slaps Demi Lovato for being one). - WonkeyDude98

These songs are incredibly boring. - Chemicool

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

At least he has some kind of voice now. - WonkeyDude98

And his new song is my most hated! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

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.

It's sad, indeed. - BKAllmighty

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.

What? I never knew people were still fussing over autotune.
I gotta tell you a secret: I love autoune!
It gives the music a sharp, flowing, but silky taste.
Hate if you want, just trying to express my opinion. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

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

On the news. In the USA, Somewhere, loads of people were dancing to this song. In the supermarket, in the pool, everywhere.

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

Uptown Funk, See You Again, Shut Up + Dance, Sugar, Hello, Blank Space, Style, Can't Feel My Face, Wildest Dreams, they all suffered from this. - WonkeyDude98

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

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

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

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

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

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

14 No talent
15 Shawn Mendes got a top 10 hit

I hate this kid so much

16 Taylor Swift got two #1 hits
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

A troll added this. - WonkeyDude98

19 The lyrics structure V 1 Comment
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...
