In 2022, there are songs so popular that people simply cannot stand to listen to them anymore, and there are also songs that make their way into the mainstream, albeit not in a good way. Here are Popular Songs That People Can’t Stand in 2022.
1) All Star by Smash Mouth
The song was a popular hit, but now it’s just one of those songs that people can’t stand to listen to. I know because I’m one of them. The lyrics are so repetitive and overplayed that it gets stuck in your head for days. It’s not even a good song anymore!
The chorus repeats the same few lines over and over again, while other parts are so unoriginal and boring that they’ll put you to sleep. We get it: You’re a famous singer who has been around for years, and we should be honored or something to hear you sing this song except that we’re not. We just want the song to stop playing. If only there were some way for us all to get together and make this happen.
2) A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton
I can’t stand to listen to this song, it’s so overplayed. Honestly, I never want to hear it again. If there’s one song that I could get rid of from my library and never have it played again, it would be this one. There are so many other songs out there that are just as good or even better than A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton. Why can’t we listen to those instead? It seems like the only time that this song is ever played is during Christmas time because of the holiday theme. Do people really want to hear it then too? I know for a fact that they don’t. Nobody wants to hear it at any point in their life. I cannot believe how often this song is on the radio. Every single day, every single hour, all day long. I can’t take it anymore! Stop playing this dumb song! It’s driving me crazy!
3) Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen
In 2022, the song Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen is so overplayed that people cannot stand to listen to it. The song was released on September 21st, 2012 and became very popular over the next few months. It reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending October 28th, 2012. The single has been certified 6x platinum by the RIAA and has sold more than 12 million copies worldwide. The song is so overprescribed that people cannot stand to hear it anymore. One of the reasons why is because it seems like everyone played it nonstop after they heard it. There are also other reasons why people cannot stand this song as well such as its repetitive lyrics and melody, or how catchy but annoying this song can be at times.
4) Gangnam Style by PSY
Gangnam Style by Psy is one of the most popular songs of the early 2000s. The song was released in 2012 and was an international hit. It has been nominated for more than 20 different awards, including being named the best video on YouTube. The song became so overplayed that people simply cannot stand to listen to it anymore. And yet it still remains popular. I can remember going to school and hearing this song every single day at least once because every other person loved listening to this catchy tune. The song has been out for ten years now and its popularity has not declined even a little bit. Gangnam style by PSY will continue to be played until there are no human beings left on Earth who want to hear it!
5) Happy by Pharrell Williams
Pharrell Williams’ Happy was released in 2013 and has become a popular song for its uplifting lyrics. The song quickly became overplayed because of how catchy the tune is. Now, ten years later, people cannot stand to listen to it.
The song topped the charts and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 86th Academy Awards ceremony. The awards show did not win any awards but continued to climb up the Billboard Hot 100 chart until it reached number one. One year after the release of Happy, Forbes reported that Happy had made Pharrell Williams $22 million dollars from ad revenues as well as .8 billion streams on Spotify.
6) Let it Go from Frozen
Please, let it go. Let it go. Can’t hold it back anymore. Let it go, let it go. Turn away and slam the door! I don’t care what they’re going to say! Let the storm rage on. In contrast, the cold never bothered me before, either. A man can live a thousand years and still be king of everything he sees. Wait, that’s not right? Oh well; all these Frozen songs are starting to sound alike anyways. Gotta love the classics from decades ago, like Old MacDonald Had A Farm or Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Those really seem to get stuck in your head for days, or at least until you hear one of those new whiz-bang future pop hits blasting out of someones windows as you walk down the street or up the stairs to your apartment unit
7) Macarena by Los Del Rio
This song is so overplayed that people simply cannot stand to listen to it. It’s a Spanish dance tune, and the lyrics are a little hard to understand, but it’s still catchy as hell. This is one of those songs that you have to remember when you were younger, maybe after an uncle taught you how to dance at a family reunion or something like that. It’s one of those tunes that will always be remembered for its importance and impact on our culture. There was even a point where this song was the most streamed and downloaded track in history, which means this song will probably never go out of style, even if people can’t stand listening to it anymore.
