The Worst Songs and Shoes of the Last Decade


Five Songs That Make My Ears Bleed

Let’s start off strong with the most well known worst song of the past decade: “Friday” by Rebecca Black. The unironic corny track was the most disliked song and video following its release. Poor Rebecca; she was only a middle schooler. But whoever her producers were should have shut it down ASAP, both for her sake and the public’s. 

Now that we’re already on the subject, “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepson is almost synonymous with “Friday” in its corniness. But, even worse, the song was inescapable. 2012 radio was spammed with Carly Rae. MAKE IT STOP. 

Meghan Trainor’s whole discography is pretty insufferable, but if I have to choose one I’d say “Dear Future Husband” is probably her worst. 

The Chainsmokers’ “#SELFIE” makes me so ashamed to be Gen Z. It is honestly the biggest embarrassment that this song has 239 million streams. 

And last but not least, the song that gives me a physical reaction: “Dance Monkey” by Tones and I. That’s all I need to say about that. 


Five Shoes That Make My Eyes Bleed

Crocs. I am so confused as to why I still see these today. Crocs are the cheugiest shoe of all. Not only do they look so silly, but there is absolutely no way they are comfortable. $50 for rubber clown shoes. These MUST go. 

Thank the heavens chunky Filas sneakers were in and out. Also known as the “dino stompers”, these white shoes were far from classics. Not to mention they are literally huge. Any platform sneakers do not have my love, but especially these chunkers. 

On the topic of rubber shoes, it’s tragic that rubber flip flops are the cheapest beach footwear because they are absolutely hideous. Not to mention the straps come out of the center hole everytime. 0/10 shoe. 

I used to rock the knee-high Converse when I was in elementary school. So glad I left them in fourth grade. The sight of that shoe makes me feel sticky and itchy. At least I had the confidence to actually wear those at one point in my life.

Ending strong on a hot take: Golden Goose sneakers. $600 dollar shoes that have purposeful dirt on them? No thank you. White tennis shoes come in so many affordable forms, but for some reason the Golden Goose shoe has become a token for the preppy archetype. Stars on sneakers belong only to Converse…
