Worst Songs of 2011…So Far

Posted September 8, 2011 by J Matthew Cobb in Features

And now we unofficially present the worst songs of 2011, so far…

As 2011 comes to a screeching hault, we decided to ask the burning question that all music lovers across the country on are itching to answer. Certainly with each and every passing year, a song hits the radio that urks the hell out of folk. Maybe the fault lies on the song’s heavy rotation at radio or maybe it’s because the song is lacking content, substance and everything else in between. Well, only the listeners have the answer to that question.

That is why we wanted to officially let the cat out of the bag and ask the burning question ourselves.

So far in 2011, what song qualifies as being the year’s worst song.

So far, the comments at our HIFI Facebook page and Twitter page (and on my personal FB page) is revealing a few strong contenders.

Stefan Villegas believes LMFAO‘s summer smash “Party Rock Anthem” should be on that list.

Timothy D. Williams was in pain when he heard Jennifer Hudson‘s R&B ballad “Where You At.”

Without hesitation, Joseph Middelton went a step further to add Beyonce’s gurlpower anthem “Run The World (Girls)” to the list.

Personally, I couldn’t forget Kim Kardashian‘s absent-minded attempt at party pop with her Ryan Seacrest-supported “Jam (Turn It Up).” In a track review released earlier this year, I went on the record to say that “Jam (Turn It Up),” produced by The-Dream, is a demo that should be canned and eternally labeled as an experiment gone wrong. I stand by my words.

So who else do you think deserve to be nailed to the cross for creating some of the year’s worst songs. We want to hear from you. And you. And you too.
