2012 was an incredible year in music when it wasn’t being trolled by lyrically challenged rappers, struggle falsettos and a swaggy Korean in colorful Monopoly Man suits. As always, there were hundreds of contenders but these ten were easily the absolute worst of this year’s trash. The absolute worst of the terrible. This year’s 10 Worst songs. Take a look.
Alicia Keys “Girl On Fire” - The souls of tortured wildlife and animal cruelty victims obviously live inside Alicia’s voice and speak through her. As of now, “Girl On Fire” is one of the Top 5 most vocally-disrespectful songs in modern music history.
2 Chainz Feat. Kanye West “Birthday Song” - There’s something about this song that we can’t quite figure out. The awkward beat, Tity’s 5th grade rhyme scheme and jewree sto’ burial requests all seem either slow class-y or tryingtoohardsy.
Elle Varner “Refill” - If you put a kitten in the microwave and press ‘popcorn,’ it’ll sound exactly like Elle Varner does on “Refill.” :(
Trey Songz Feat. T.I. “Two Reasons” - You only came to the club for the ladies and drinks? Why the hell else would you come to a club? Bible study?
Nicki Minaj “Roman Holiday” - Roman and several other tormented souls living inside Nicki’s wig collection speaking through her (with terrible British accents) which explains the mid-song exorcism. And there’s also rapping in various cartoonish dialects, struggle vocals, shrieks and Holy chants. It’s basically Nicki’s loudest cry for help to date.
LL Cool J “Ratchet” - The worst song of the 21st century. Formal Kangol line and premium flavored lip chap should be Uncle LL’s focus, not staying relevant in Rap.
Brandy Feat. Chris Brown “Put It Down” - Brandy, the mouth-breather trying to be hot will always seem forced like Kelly Rowland’s sex appeal on “Motivation.” Both would make most men laugh uncontrollably during a lap dance. “Put It Down?” Ehhh, nah.
Fat Joe Feat. Rick Ross & Juicy J “Instagram That Ho” - Anything that happens after you’ve seen the title of this song and listened anyway is completely your fault.
Waka Flocka Flame “Rooster in my Rari” - There’s a who in your what? But, WHY? Waka Flocka songs shouldn’t make you ask questions.
