17 of the Most Annoying Songs Ever Produced

I don’t think anyone who has ever recorded a song wants to end up on a list like this one, because “annoying” is not exactly positive, right?

The thing is, “annoying” could mean it’s gotten a lot of play over the years, it’s an earworm that people just can’t quit, or something else that, money-wise, could be a positive thing.

You’ll have to scroll through these 17 songs to gauge for yourself if there’s an upside lurking behind any of these gems.

17. “Photograph” by Nickelback.

I mean….to be fair, pretty much anything by Nickelback

16. “We Built This City” by Starship.

I know you’re singing it in your head, despite your best efforts.

15. “Take My Breath Away” by Berlin.

How many choruses does this song have?

14. “My Humps” by The Black Eyed Peas.

Seriously who thought this was a good idea in the first place?

13. “Mambo #5” by Lou Bega.

Who could have guessed this one would stick around for so long?

12. “We Are The World” by USA for Africa.

It’s almost too cringe for words.

11. “You’re Beautiful” by James Blunt.

Is the song or the video more annoying? You decide!

10. “Macarena” by Los Del Rio.

This did not go away for a looooonggg time.

9. “Wannabe” by The Spice Girls.

Annoying, but in a good way.

8. “One Week” by the Barenaked Ladies.

Am I the only person who still kind of likes this song?

7. “The Thong Song” by Sisqo.

I actually hate it.

6. “Who Let the Dogs Out” by the Baha Men.

Y’all, my college even adopted this and played a version during football games.

5. “Rock the Boat” by The Hues Corporation.

Just when I almost forgot this one existed.

4. “Don’t Worry Be Happy” by Bobby McFerrin.

This song feels absolutely interminable.

3. “Believe” by Cher.

Hard to believe this one made the charts.

2. “My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion.

Is it because of Titanic or would it have been as annoying on its own?

1. “Party All the Time” by Eddie Murphy.

We love you, but this ain’t it.

I’m not sure I need to hear any of these again, if I’m being honest.
