Sure, music is subjective and all of that, but it’s a heck of a lot easier to come to a consensus on what’s not great than on what is.

And since that’s the case, may we humbly submit these 15 songs for the “worst ever” category.

15. “We are the World,” by USA for Africa.


Maudlin trash.

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

How long is this song?

13. “Mambo Number Five,” by Lou Bega

I think we can all agree this is the actual worst.

12. “The Thong Song,” by Sisqo

We might not have been able to get through spring break without it, but maybe it wouldn’t have been such a bad thing.

11. “Rock the Boat,” by The Hues Corporation

I got nothin.

10. “We Built This City,” by Starship.

Are there only 7 words, or did I block the rest out?

9. “Macarena,” by Los Del Rio


Sure, it’s catchy, but that doesn’t mean it’s not terrible.

8. “Photograph,” by Nickelback

I mean…just Nickelback in general, really.

7. “You’re Beautiful,” by James Blunt

Also, what on earth is this video?

6. “Believe,” by Cher


The comeback that definitely should not have been.

5. “My Humps,” by The Black-Eyed Peas

This should be permanently banned. Don’t @ me.

4. “Who Let the Dogs Out,” by Baha Men

When will people stop playing this?

3. “Take My Breath Away,” by Berlin

Yes, even considering Top Gun.

2. “Wannabe,” by The Spice Girls

They had actual good songs.

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

I bet he regrets it, too.

Sorry if you’re singing along.
