Obviously inspired by the worst 80's song talk. I don't actually listen to music that much so I'm having trouble thinking of a song I really hate this decade or ever really.

What are really bad songs from this decade? Which one would you nominate as the worst of the decade?

As someone who was primarily influenced by radio, late night television, and the juggernaut that was MTV back in the day, I've kinda fell off the wagon when it comes to anything released for the better part of the last two decades, so this thread should be interesting.

Especially considering a lot of modern music that I have heard has left me wondering what the hell happened? Did things get worse or did I just get old?

Country and rock had taken a nosedive back then, I can't imagine either have bounced back much, and the majority of newer hip hop I've been exposed to seems to be mush mouthed autotuned nonsense for the most part.

enjoy some Corey Feldman. This is the single, so you could probably dig through his album to find something even worse, but i don't have the guts to do it :D

Miley's sister squealing over this song while her boyfriend's crackly voice raps is not a great listen neither. Check the last part of the song if you think that the singing is not all that bad.

This fall out boy song is quite dreadful as well.

oh and while Rock is not in the mainstream all that much, if you're looking for it there's quite some quality guitar music to be found. White Reaper, Squid, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, The Voidz, Chromatics, Iceage, Black Midi, Fontaines DC, PUP, Fucked Up, Parquet Courts, White Lies, Flasher, Shame, Gang of Youths, Tame Impala, Pond, Drenge, Angel Du$T, Black Mountain, Swans, Kurt Vile, Cass McCombs, Alex Lahey, The Growlers, The National, Courtney Barnett, Sturgill Simpson, Arctic Monkeys, Mitski, Vampire Weekend, St Vincent, DIIV, Ghost, Big Thief, Alex Cameron, Foals, Twin Peaks, Nilufer Yanya, Charly Bliss, Raconteurs, Mac Demarco, Priests, Ariel Pink, Hop Along. I'm not too well versed in metal, but i've seen quite some praise for recent metal music as well. Deafheaven, Inter Arma, High on Fire, Goatess and such.

Music is in quite a decent spot, but i have to work a bit harder than i used to to find stuff that i like. Naturally there's way more bad stuff / stuff i don't care for readily available as well.

First thing that comes to mind is "I'm Sexy and I know it" by LMFAO. The song is pretty annoying and the video is worse. I don't think I can even post it here because there is so much footage of dick bulge swinging in your face. I think they were trying to make fun of macho masculinity but the official video is pretty gross.

For the indie scene, there's this song by Cold War Kids. The song is boring and so is the video.

First song that came to mind was Selfie by The Chainsmokers. Pretty much all their music has been terrible but boy is that song bad.

The actual answer probably lies in the dregs of Soundcloud and Spotify parody raps, but for practicality's sake that rabbit hole has to be ignored.

Rihanna - Work is really grating. Adele - Rumor Has It is also very annoying, although I like some of her other stuff.

I like a lot of current stuff, but the shit getting airplay these days is atrocious.

It's gotta be a Corey Feldman or Logic song.

I can't name and specific song, but I'm thinking that it belongs to either Lil Yachty, IceJJFish, Hopsin, Jaden Smith, Eminem, Logic, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Lil Pump, Tekashi 69, Nickelback, or just all of Chance the Rapper's The Big Day.

It's whatever is playing over the gym speakers at any given moment.

If I have to name an individual song, it's whatever that "I'm only human" crap is called. It's been used to death in just about every trailer for every movie, game, and TV show for the last couple of years.

I'm probably the wrong person to ask through. I think there hasn't been a good band since Tchaikovsky.

I can't.
I can think of a few i really hate, but pop music and modern rap gets more and more offensively disgusting every day.

didn't even have to think about it-

California Gurls by Katy Perry.

the writing is conceptually bankrupt, it's yet another vehicle for snoop's slow decline/cash-in, and the chorus vocal riff sounds like an ambulance siren sample routed through a freeware vocoloid VST.
