There are plenty of annoying songs out there. Every genre has them, and unfortunately - so does every generation. Each year your ears are blasted with annoying songs that you just can't un-hear.
The 13 Top Annoying Songs
Depending on your tastes, it can either make it a nightmare to turn on the radio, or it can be a hilarious experience that you and your friends can enjoy, ironically.
1. Ylvis - The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) (2014)
If you haven't had the displeasure of hearing this song, you're lucky. It's one of the most annoying songs ever created, and it doesn't even really tell you what the fox says. If you ever hear a fox say, “ring a ding ding,” you may want to get your ears and head checked.
2. Taylor Swift - Shake It Off (2014)
For many people, all of Taylor Swift's songs could end up on a list of most annoying songs. However, if you want to pick one that is extremely annoying and sticks in your head even when you hate it, “Shake It Off” is that song.
4. Miley Cyrus - Wrecking Ball (2013)
Miley Cyrus, much like Taylor Swift, is another singer/performer people love to hate. She has plenty of annoying songs, annoying videos, and she's done a lot of stupid things. "Wrecking Ball" is one of the most annoying.
5. Psy - Gangnam Style (2012)
Psy is a popular K-pop singer, to some, and an annoying performer/singer to others. His song “Gangnam Style” is a dance track that is just as annoying as “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say).” It's a song that works great on the dance floor, but sucks nonetheless.
6. Meghan Trainor - All About That Bass (2014)
Meghan Trainor is annoying, and so is this song. This isn't the only song by this ambitious singer that you'll find on lists of bad and annoying songs. She's great at making music that people don't like. Someone must like them, but that's not enough to keep people with actual musical taste from avoiding hearing about how “it's all about that bass, no treble.”
7. Nicki Minaj - Super Bass (2010)
Nicki Minaj is also good at being annoying and making many of the most annoying songs ever recorded. If she didn't try to, annoyingly, rap in her songs, they might be OK. She has a knack for a great dance beat, but her lyrics and rapping are beyond annoying.
8. Jason Derulo - Wiggle (2014)
Ever hear a song, or watch a music video, and find yourself disgusted by what you're hearing/seeing? This song has that effect on people. Featuring Snoop Dogg, this song is annoying and very sexist. Oh, and any song that mentions social media in it automatically deserves a thumbs down.
9. The Chainsmokers - Selfie (2014)
Speaking of songs about social media, nothing is more annoying than listening to someone sing about selfies. The intro to this song is one of the most annoying things about it. There’s nothing to this song but a dance beat that's ruined by stupidity.
10. LMFAO - Sexy And I Know It (2011)
A song about being a narcissistic jerk, that's what this is. It's supposed to be funny, right? It's not funny though; it is one of the most annoying songs ever made.
11. Rebecca Black - Friday (2011)
The over-use of Auto-tune in this song makes it awful to listen to. It has potential to be a great teen driven song, all about having fun on Friday. However, any good the song might have had in its lyrics are lost in the fact that it sounds terrible.
12. Willow Smith - Whip My Hair (2010)
Willow Smith is adorable, and she has a voice that sounds far above her years, but this song is annoying. Maybe if the line “I whip my hair back and forth” was removed completely from the song it would be a little better.
13. Silento - Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) (2016)
Speaking of whipping things, here's one more annoying song that will make you want to rip your hair out. It's an earworm that has terrible vocals. Oh, and the Whip and Nae Nae are pretty lame dance moves. Just saying.
