Guitarist and last surviving original member of Lynyrd Skynyrd.

It’s really hard to admit that these songs are Some Of The Worst Songs That Were Big Hits.  These are the songs that make your skin crawl the second you hear them.  Now keep in mind, these were also some of the biggest hits in the history of music.  Now I get it, that doesn’t always make them good, they were just big hits.

The songs I am about to spotlight later are just a handful of bad songs that were hits on the radio.  Here are some more.

Songs That Didn’t Make The List

  • Ricky Martin, “She Bangs”
  • Madonna, “American Pie”
  • Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, “Downtown”
  • Bebe Rexha & Florida Georgia Line, “Meant to Be”
  • Taylor Swift featuring Brendon Urie, “Me!”
  • Black Eyed Peas, “Humps”
  • Katy Perry, “I Kissed A Girl”
  • Vanilla Ice, “Ice Ice Baby”
  • Presidents of The United States of America, “Lump”

So if you are at a party or a wedding and these songs come on, and you just want to jump off the top floor or out the window, remember they were big hits and people loved them.  On the other side, just as many people hated them.

Now the 7 worst songs ever that were big hits but you still don’t like them.
