The Top 10 Most Annoying Songs of All Time

Robert of the Radish

Playlists are best when they're narrowly tailored to a distinct audience. It's impossible to make a list songs that appeals to everyone, but it's equally hard to make a list that everyone hates. It doesn't matter how bad a song is, there will always be some subset of people who think it's the best thing ever. Such is the nature of humankind, one man's trash is another man's treasure.

This playlist is my best attempt at creating a list of the top 10 most annoying songs in the history of recorded music.


It wasn't until I started searching through thousands of horrible songs that I realized what a difficult task it actually is to find "the worst." While I fully understand that plethora of schlock did not make this list, I will defend every selection that did. Please don't take this personally, I had to narrow it down to 10, and these are what I consider the very worst, most annoying songs ever recorded.

So here we go, I give you my top 10 most annoying songs of all time.
