15 of the Most Annoying Songs We’ve Heard This Year

2024’s music scene has seen plenty of hits, but also an equal amount of duds. The worst songs numb your eats as soon as they come on, or those the radio stations play every 10 minutes. If you’ve reached your limit with certain tunes, you’ll appreciate why these songs are some of the most aggravating.

1. “Carnival”

Performed by Kanye West, Ty Dolla $ign, Playboi Carti, and Rich the Kid, “Carnival” is misogynistic, vulgar, and not safe for work (NSFW). Diehard fans of these musicians will love this song, but other music lovers find it gross and disheartening.

2. “Is It Over Now? (Taylor’s Version)”

Swifties aren’t going to like this critique of their idol’s music, but it has to be done. What’s most annoying about this song is the issue with nearly all of Taylor Swift’s songs: they’re bland and not memorable. It’s hard to distinguish one song from the other because they all sound similar.

3. “Von Dutch”

A song that wants to be a party song but doesn’t quite get there, “Von Dutch” is terribly low energy. Instead of sounding like the powerhouse singer that she is, Charli XCX comes across like a local dance club vocalist. “Von Dutch” is sadly boring and forgettable even before it’s finished playing.

4. “Paint the Town Red”

Doja Cat is known for her edginess, but this tune is a little out there even for her. She samples Dionne Warwick’s classic “Walk on By” and doesn’t do the song justice. Trying to blend Doja Cat’s singing and rapping with Dionne Warwick’s elegant voice is a head-scratcher.

5. “Hiss”

Megan Thee Stallion released this single with a line that allegedly slammed fellow rapper Nicki Minaj’s husband. The diss caused a furor between the two women and their fan bases, which became personal and out of control. Any song creating that kind of needless drama is irritating and immature.

6. “Big Foot”

Speaking of creating drama, Minaj wasn’t about to take Megan Thee Stallion’s insults lying down. She quickly released this record in response and rapidly escalated the feud between them and their respective camps. Not only is “Big Foot” unnecessary, but it’s also not a very good song.

7. “Yes, And?”

Ariana Grande has an amazing voice, and there’s no denying her talent. But this song seems derivative as if a 1980s pop singer had originally performed it. Hearing it the first time is okay, but a few more times will make you want to break out old Madonna or Bananarama albums and listen to the real thing.

8. “Rich Baby Daddy”

After listening to Drake’s album All the Dogs, which includes the single “Rich Baby Daddy,” rapper and podcaster Joe Budden criticized him for making songs for much younger listeners instead of his age group, which is mid-30s. Budden didn’t lie. I can’t imagine anyone older than 22 feeling this single, which features SZA and Sexyy Red. Drake can do much better than this.

9. “Training Session”

Dua Lipa creates music that commands you to dance. However, that same quality is also her weakness: all her dance songs sound so similar that it’s hard to distinguish one from the other. Hopefully, she’ll break out of this mold and try something new because she can sing.

10. “Soak City (Do It)”

310babii is a relative newcomer to the hip-hop scene, and maybe he has more promising music yet to come, but this song sounds like a lot of mumbling. When it’s hard to understand what someone is rapping or singing, that immediately makes it annoying.

11. “Texas Hold’ Em”

At the risk of invoking the ire of Beyonce’s Beyhive, “Texas Hold ‘Em” is a middle-of-the-road song that’s so overhyped and overplayed that it can’t help but rub some people the wrong way. There’s nothing particularly special about it, and if a traditional country singer performed the song, it probably wouldn’t chart very high.

12. “Like What (Freestyle)”

As entertaining as she is on social media, Cardi B. isn’t a very good rapper, and her songs reflect that. “Like What (Freestyle)” gets heavy airplay on urban radio for unknown reasons, but it doesn’t get better the more you hear it. Cardi’s videos are visually stunning, but it’s a shame her music doesn’t match the quality of the images she creates.

13. “Whatever”

Shakira’s crossover English-language hit “Whenever, Wherever” has been remade into an electronic dance music (EDM) number by DJ Kygo and singer Ava Max. Unfortunately, it lacks the spirit and soulfulness of the original version. “Whatever” feels overproduced to the point where it would be nice to hear Ava Max’s lovely voice without all the electronica.

14. “J Christ”

As usual, Lil Nas X likes to be a provocateur, pushing the envelope with racy, NSFW lyrics and imagery. His “Old Town Road” was delightful and a fresh spin on country music. However, “J Christ,” like “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” is meant to invoke outrage. Since it feels unoriginal, it rapidly loses its shock value.

15. “Beg Forgiveness”

Once again, Kanye West demonstrates how much he’s fallen off over the years with this muddled track. This time, he’s performing with Ty Dolla $ign (again) and Chris Brown. West is considered a musical genius, but it’s hard to hear it in this track that’s more noise than anything else.

Never judge a book by its cover. You can say the same about movies.

Some of our favorite films are the ones we went into with no expectations. Despite this, they blew us away from start to finish.

The 80s was an incredible time for film. From award-winning cinema to hilarious comedies and everything in between, there was something for everyone to enjoy.

Thankfully, many of these 80s movies still hold up today. I regularly find myself watching these beloved 80s movies more often than modern cinema.
