List of music considered the worst[edit]

I expanded the "songs" page to include albums, classical and film music. The lack of unbiased references makes it hard to add entries that aren't frivolous. (There were four song entries from 2010-11, and only ten from before that.) If a song or album has been included on two notable "worst music of all time" lists, then it can go in this article - others can be discussed below.

Is there any reason why 'Womanizer' is here with 17 LINKS! People have tried to delete it twice (I did once) but these have been undone. Could whoever keeps doing this please cut the links given and cite professional publications rather than forums and blogs and write down some information in the article itself like every other song in the article, or delete 'Womanizer' from the list. I think it's a terrible song too, but it has to have been declared as one of the worst songs ever by a major source. I normally don't write here, but this was so horrifically bad that I needed to. I don't want to start an edit war. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:03, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

Why wouldn't it be here? This list is crap anyway otherwise Friday would be here as more than a dishonorable mention. And Born This Way and pretty much everything by Katy Perry.

Really the worst songs of all time are the ones that don't even get air time. This list is just silly child's play. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:20, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

Really crappy title[edit]

Needs a better title. "List of music consider the worst" sounds like a 10 year old wrote it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:28, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

Too Subjective[edit]

Delete. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:15, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

Seriously, I read the last "discussion" on deletion and it seemed to lean towards delete. And none of the reasons for keeping were particularly rational. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:17, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

"Scream", Chris Cornell (2009)[edit]

It's been known that this got album got slammed by critics and Rock fans for Chris doing an R&B album despite the fact of the big promotion behind it. It wouldn't be a suprise if it was on the worst albums list, despite the fact I like the title track. Adam the silly (talk) 23:52, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Rebecca Black[edit]

I'm surprised her song Friday isn't on the list. On youtube it has more dislikes than likes...and those dislikes are in the millions! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:55, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

One Direction[edit]

Can we not include songs like 'What Makes You Beautiful' and 'Baby' by One Direction and Bieber respectively on the list based on dislikes on youtube? It would seriously make my day. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Harry McThompson (talkcontribs) 20:54, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Don't worry I deleted that part is the "Songs" section. Tony 4-2-1-9-9-8 (talk) 00:17, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

Velvet Underground's "Squeeze"[edit]

At first I wouldn't think that something from this band would be considered terrible at all, but then I saw Rolling Stone's score of only one star, Classic Rock magazine's naming it in their worst albums list, and as being an embarrassment to several of the band's core people. This could be a legitimate inclusion to the worst albums list. --Adam the silly (talk) 05:54, 29 December 2012 (UTC)


  • This article seriously needs a rewrite, not to mention more reliable sources. Most (if not all) of the examples listed are backed up by a one of two sources from offshoot polls; in addition, when looking at the examples' separate articles, most of them have no mention of anything even close to the effect of being the "worst".

Orphaned references in List of music considered the worst[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of List of music considered the worst's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "allmusic":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 10:59, 4 October 2013 (UTC)


OK, some angry Burial fans think they're funny. Pitchfork actually gave it a 9... Laerm (talk) 05:14, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Maybe so, but that does not necessarily mean it is not considered a very bad release - Pitchfork is only the barometer of the thoughts of a very narrow section of white, middle class, twenty-something American critics that does not reflect broader tendencies in media or in general critical responses. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:37, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
Right, well, my point was more that the quoted text isn't what Pitchfork said; they actually had a rather opposite opinion.

"Systemic bias", so called[edit]

That is clearly a silly accusation.
The article is about music in English and it should just say that explicitly. (talk) 00:32, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
