I don’t think that we’ve done a Worst of Music post since this time last year. It’s not that music has gotten any better. I’m just avoiding any of the hits stations as much as possible. If you go off the Billboard path, you can find some pretty good music. This year, I’ve discovered Deafheaven and Sleater Kinney so it’s not like music is all terrible. Just mostly terrible.
Since most of the internet has gone into year-in-review mode, I thought that we’d do our usual retrospective of the worst music of 2015. But why do I have to do anything when I can use DJ Earworm’s annual mashup of the top 50 pop hits of the year to recap the year in bad music. Apart from Adele. She’s alright.
While this year was a quiet one for Worst of Music posts on the blog (the only one was Avril Lavigne’s Hello Kitty), that doesn’t mean that there wasn’t a whole pile of bad music this year.
Since most of the internet has gone into year-in-review mode, I thought that we’d do our usual retrospective of the worst music of 2014. But why do I have to do anything when I can use DJ Earworm’s annual mashup of 25 of the top pop hits of the year to recap the year in bad music.
Well, it’s certainly been a while since I’ve done a Worst of Music post. I really need to bring these things back on a semi-regular basis. But do you know how bad music can be nowadays. I was going insane listening to “today’s big hits.”
But since everyone’s doing year in review type stuff, I thought that I’d throw the annual DJ Earworm mashup of the year’s big songs into the mix on behalf of the Worst of Music. So to look back on the year that was in music, both the good but mostly bad, here’s is a collection of mashups of the 25 biggest songs of 2013.
In my Worst of Music posts, I often refer to various singers as all-time WoM’ers or Hall of Famers. Today, I’ve decided to officially induct the first member of the Worst of Music Hall of Fame.
Today’s WoM HoFer isn’t a singer but a producer. He has two previous WoM winners with Rebecca Black’s Friday and Nicole Westbrook’s It’s Thanksgiving. The latest song that he’s produced to go viral may be the worst of the bunch and makes him our first ever three-time Worst of Music award winner and earned him a spot in the WoM Hall of Fame. His latest song is by a rapping duo called Tweenchronic and is called Skip Rope. Continue reading
There were some highlights in music this year but, as always, those highlights were largely overshadowed by some craptacular music in 2012. While the Worst of Music feature wasn’t on the blog regularly this year, that didn’t mean that music got better this year. Apart from some highlights like Psy and Adele, there was a lot of bad music other than the 15 WoM winners of 2012.
To look back on the year that was in music, both the good but mostly bad, here’s is a collection of mashups of the hit songs of 2012. Continue reading
When we first found out about Avril Lavigne getting engaged to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, we all made the joke about the marriage consolidating bad music into one household. Unfortunately, we overlooked the possibility that Kroeger and Lavigne getting together meant that they could make music together. The first musical output of their relationship is Avril covering Nickelback’s How You Remind Me. Continue reading
I felt like that classic Fry meme after watching this week’s Worst of Music winner’s video. I’m not sure if we’re being trolled or this is a legitimate attempt to make a music video. Normally, it’s pretty obvious if something is a parody or not. In this case, I have no idea what is going on. This week’s WoM winner is by a singer named Gnesa with her first song called Wilder. Continue reading
After sparking just a tiny bit of angry discussion with the last edition of the WoM, I think this one will go over just a bit easier. Unless you aren’t deaf. In that case, you’ll curse me until the day you die. That’s because we have the matriarch of the Kardashian/Jenner clan singing her previously completely forgotten song I Love My Friends. Continue reading
It’s Day 10 of the London 2012 Olympics and I’ve had enough of Canada winning medals. It has nothing to do with hating my country. I think our athletes are doing amazing despite the media’s initial doom and gloom. No, my problem is the awful, clichéd, melodramatic song that CTV plays over a melodramatic highlights package after every Canadian medal victory. So for ruining my enjoyment of both the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics and London 2012 Summer Olympics, this week’s worst of music is CTV’s Olympic theme song I Believe by Nikki Yanofsky. Continue reading
I’ve said it before that one of the greatest evils to befall modern music is the increasing usage of autotune in songs. It is generally unbearably annoying and though often it does spare us the pain of someone who can’t sing in-tune. Then there’s tennis star Caroline Wozniacki. She just released a new single for charity called Oxygen but this will do more to lose charities fundraising opportunities than make them money. Continue reading
