Would fit snugly on a rolling worst music of the 2010s thread.

The music is truly awful, but his face is significantly worse.

A more jejune Gavin Rossdale.

If there's a way that music as bad as that Yungblud thing can be prevented from making it off the island in future, then Brexit will be worth it (to the rest of the world).

Knew the revive would be bcz of the fully deserved Malkmus stinker

Uptown VONC (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 22 January 2019 19:56 (seven months ago) link

I mean if you'd asked me in 1999 what Malkmus would be doing in 2019, my guess wouldn't have been too far from literally everything about that song and video.

I think it’s... fine

the yungblud sounds entirely indistinguishable from what white men were preferentially listening to for an entire decade

dyl, Wednesday, 23 January 2019 04:24 (seven months ago) link

It sounds like if One Direction had just discovered Oasis or the Happy Mondays to me.

Just checked the RYM top 200 records. Statistically, i like about 15-20 records from that list per year. now i found only 1. So unless the next 2/3rd of the year is going to be amazing, 2019 will be the worst

nostormo, Wednesday, 1 May 2019 18:52 (four months ago) link

Sticking to the current top 10, Weyes Blood, The Caretaker, Waste of Space Orchestra, Billy Woods & Kenny Segal and Inter Arma are all great.

It's subjective of course.

Plus Little Simz (imo)

There's never been a year when RYM has basically jacked my own personal taste so hard haha

imago, Wednesday, 1 May 2019 19:03 (four months ago) link

Quelle Chris and Little Simz aren't half bad either, although I think I prefer the former based on a cursory listen of each.

pomenitul, Wednesday, 1 May 2019 19:06 (four months ago) link

Alwsys Lot's of hip hop and metal on RYM, which i don't like, but maybe more so this year

Life is too short for Wandelweiser, though. Or my not having access to proper speakers atm (the worst part about being an ephemeral expat imho) is drawing me away from infrasounds.

Oh I like Quelle Chris too! Bung that on the list yeah.

Shout out to the unnecessary apostrophe in the title, and how it's basically just a straight rip of that terrible 2002 song that is still popular right now.

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 20 June 2019 06:31 (two months ago) link

for each successive remix they should add someone who has a word that rhymes with hat that they can highlight in their verse.

I'M A BRAT MAN (Bushido raps about eating sausage)
I'M A GNAT MAN (Tiny from Xscape sings about being short)
I'M THE BATMAN (Robert Pattinson mumbles something)
I'M A LAT MAN (Terry Crews flexes)

This should optimally continue for seven hours.

I was trying to figure out which long lost '90s indiepop Beabadoobee reminded me of, and I settled on The Autocollants. You Lie All the Time is probably my favorite song of hers

“She Plays Bass” definitely illustrates how terrible lyrics can ruin an otherwise good-sounding song.

I love this thread and it's mostly just fun and games but that blackbear song seems...insidious? Maybe it's all the ~young people~ commenters extolling how they can relate to this song and it's their life? Yikes.

Tom Walker’s “Just You And I” (2019 version) was on loop for about an hour in the place I went for lunch today until I gave up and asked for a manager. It is now at the top of my list.

morrisp has already posted it but Herve Pagez/Diplo/Charli XCX's "Spicy" (i.e. the Wannabe cover) might be the worst song of the year; it's certainly the least necessary

This sounds like the theme song to an early 90s "heartland" sitcom. If this is the best country music can do, burn the genre to the ground and start over.

shared unit of analysis (unperson), Thursday, 12 September 2019 13:10 (one week ago) link

the album is excellent but thanks for your input

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 12 September 2019 13:33 (one week ago) link

ya I'm not huge on that particular song myself but co-sign

Simon H., Thursday, 12 September 2019 13:35 (one week ago) link

it's the weakest song on the record definitely but it's not "burn the genre to the ground and start over" material

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 12 September 2019 13:36 (one week ago) link

It’s a terrific song; I knew I’d be buying the album as soon as I heard the chorus.

#YABASIC (morrisp), Thursday, 12 September 2019 14:09 (one week ago) link

I haven't listened to the highwomen album but that song is indeed not good -- I still can't believe someone recorded a cute pun on "Designing Women" in 2019 and claimed it was new and fresh

like, I’m eating an elephant head (katherine), Thursday, 12 September 2019 17:25 (one week ago) link

(and "designing women" was already a play on words, too)

like, I’m eating an elephant head (katherine), Thursday, 12 September 2019 17:26 (one week ago) link

I avoided this because my complete non-appreciation for most country music is well-known by this point and probably tired, but not nearly as tired as this song. It sounds like something characters on Glee would write as part of a special country-themed episode.

brigadier pudding (DJP), Thursday, 12 September 2019 17:27 (one week ago) link

i like their cover of "The Chain" a lot; "redesigning women" is a bum track but maybe the most likely one off that album to get some pop country radio coverage?

this is spot on, i think. album is good, this song is corny and clumsy but absolutely makes sense as a single / radio hit because most people are corny and they like clumsy

alpine static, Thursday, 12 September 2019 18:50 (one week ago) link

corny and clumsy aren't really the issue with it (I like both of those things) -- it's just dated and fusty

like, I’m eating an elephant head (katherine), Thursday, 12 September 2019 20:04 (one week ago) link
