Top 20 Songs People Want to Delete from Existence

Annoying and Overplayed Songs That Have Worn Out Their Welcome

Have you ever heard a song so many times that you just can't stand it anymore? Well, you're not alone. In a recent Reddit post, music lovers from all genres came together to share the songs they would delete from existence if given the chance. Let's take a look at the top 20 songs that people are tired of hearing.

The Annoying Pop Hits

One of the most common complaints in the Reddit post was about annoying pop hits that have been played to death. "Baby" by Justin Bieber topped the list, with one user named "musiclover123" expressing their desire to delete it because they find it annoying and overplayed. Another user named "rocknrollfan" suggested deleting Rebecca Black's "Friday" because they believe it is one of the worst songs ever made. And who could forget "Gangnam Style" by Psy? "popmusicfanatic" expressed their dislike for this catchy but overplayed song.

Childhood Overplays

Childhood memories can be tainted by songs that were played on repeat during our younger years. "Macarena" by Los Del Rio was a popular choice for deletion among those who grew up in the 90s. "90sNostalgia" mentioned that they are tired of hearing it and would like to move on. Another song that received a lot of hate was "Wonderwall" by Oasis. "AlternativeMusicFan" believes it is overrated and has been played too many times.

Repetitive and Lacking Substance

Some songs are criticized for being repetitive and lacking substance. "Gucci Gang" by Lil Pump falls into this category, according to a user named "hiphophead." They find the song repetitive and lacking substance. Similarly, "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" by Silento was mentioned by another user, who found it annoying and believed it lacked substance.

Overplayed Classics

Even classic songs can become tiresome when they are played at every event. "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey received a lot of backlash from "ClassicRockFan," who expressed their dislike for the song and stated that it is overplayed. "80sNostalgia" echoed this sentiment, expressing their tiredness of hearing "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" by Wham! at every 80s-themed event.

Controversial Songs

Controversial songs also made it onto the list. "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke was mentioned by "RnBFanatic," who believes it promotes harmful attitudes towards women and should be erased. "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster the People was criticized by "IndieMusicFan" for dealing with a sensitive topic (school shootings) in an inappropriate way.

Overshadowed Gems

Sometimes, a song becomes so popular that it overshadows other great compositions by the same artist. "No Woman, No Cry" by Bob Marley was mentioned by "ReggaeFan," who believes it has overshadowed other great reggae songs by the iconic artist. Similarly, "The Girl from Ipanema" was mentioned by "Ja**Enthusiast," who believes it has been overplayed and overshadowed other great ja** compositions.

Lost Meaning

Finally, some songs have lost their original meaning due to overplay. "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston was suggested for deletion by a user named "punkrockfan," who believes it has been overplayed and lost its original meaning. Similarly, "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen was mentioned by "PopMusicLover," who is tired of hearing it everywhere.

the Reddit post revealed a diverse range of songs that people are tired of hearing. From annoying pop hits to childhood overplays, repetitive tunes to controversial songs, and overshadowed gems to lost meanings, there is no shortage of songs that people would delete from existence if given the chance.
