What makes a song from good to one of the worst songs of all time? Well, it simply takes all sorts of half-baked musical ideas, crimes of imaging over the talent or reliance on quickly burned out trends to drop on our list.
We know we are gonna take some flak from the people who love a few of these songs. So check out AOL Radio’s 10 Worst songs ever and be sure to let us know whether you agree or disagree in the comment section below.
1. Captain and Tennille : ‘Muskrat Love’(1976)
Simply, there are no words for this one. Yes, it is a tune of amorous rodents. We are not sure what’s worse: the ridiculous delivery of the vocals or the subject matter. Although, we can also confirm that no part of this epic fail equals a song that is in any way listenable.
2. Phil Collins ‘Sussudio’(1985)
Phil Collins may have a number of solid songs, but this isn’t one of them. Senseless and needing any kind of life, the tune falls flat on any musical level, though that didn’t stop it from hitting number one on the charts.
3. Starship: We Built This City (1985)
This mid-80s hit is little catchy as all hell. But still, it’s repetitive chorus aside, there’s not a whole lot to love here. Also, the main lead singer Grace Slick has disowned the song, which has inexplicably become a staple in pop culture for its ostensibly pro-rock message.
4. 4 Non-Blondes: What’s UP? (1993)
Even though the 4 Non-Blondes didn’t exactly have a burgeoning career on the pop charts, but this hit has become more guilty for some listeners. Even the lyrics are largely obscure, the chorus made it worst in a nails-on-a-chalkboard sort of the way at least.
5. Bah Men: Who let the Dogs Out? (2000)
If you are living in the year 2000, then you were probably caught up in the baffling success of this song or wondering if the record-buying public has lost their collective minds. In any case, the Baha Men be left in the past itself for a good reason.
6. Alison Gold: ‘Chinese Food’ (2013)
In this song the producer of Rebecca Black’s Friday, the young Alison gold simply talks about how much she loves Chinese food. Especially “chow m-m-m-mein”, it seems – and it attacks the listener’s ear with the dumbest lyrics ever written.
7.Billy Ray Cyrus: Achy Breaky Heart
Those who can’t help but can shake their head whenever Miley Cyrus acts out. It may be surprising to know that her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, also gave the world this absolute mess of a song. Somehow, this idiotic, irritating tune has literally nothing going for it. There are no other words than “achy” and “breaky” apparently.
8. Blind Melon: No Rain
It’s totally only the voice. It is kind of a twisted way that he’s singing the song. It’s very nasally and the rhyme-scheme is super annoying. It’s mostly sitting on a couch with a bad posture.
9. Aaron Carter: America AO
Sound, a morale-boosting ode to his loved home count, or an insidious act of youth-targeted advertisement.
10. Mims: This Is Why I’m Hot
First off, he repeats “This is why I’m hot” too much.
Second, he repeats “This is why I’m hot” too much.
