Looking back on 2017, there was a lot of amazing music. Also, some not-so-great music.
If you want to focus on the good stuff, we highly recommend our Top 10 Albums of 2017 list featuring Petit Biscuit, Odesza, Kaskade, The Bloody Beetroots and more. If it’s the worst albums and songs of the year you’re after, Entertainment Weekly has a list for that.
Topping the list is none other than the Grammy award-winning act The Chainsmokers, for both their album Memories… Do Not Open and the track “Break Up Every Night.” It’s hard for us to argue, especially with the song choice, which is the most displeasing of the album.
Taking an own excerpt from Your EDM’s review:
“Break Up Every Night” is the likely worst song that The Chainsmokers (or whoever) have ever written. It needlessly panders to the female teenage demographic with inspired lyrics like “she tries to break up every night / then try to fuck me back to life”, not to mention a cringe-worthy beat and vocal performance from Drew.
The Chainsmokers have found their niche creating chart-topping pop songs and catering to a massive global following. So, it’s unlikely they will or should be phased by this. Keep doing you, guys.
Moving on, Chris Brown, Lil Yachty, Kid Rock and Prophets of Rage each find a spot on Entertainment Weekly‘s “Worst Albums of 2017” list. Katy Perry‘s “Into Me You See,” DJ Khaled‘s “I Love You So Much,” and “These Heux” by Bhad Bhabie are all awarded with the worst songs of 2017. EW also includes Post Malone‘s #1 hit “Rockstar” (feat. 21 Savage) on the “Worst Songs of 2017” list, clearly trying to shake things up a bit, though we strongly disagree with that one.
Now is an opportune time to forget about all the bad music of the year and check out the good stuff here.
