    This is an opinion thread. Feel free to disagree, and, most importantly: respect.

    I'm talking about songs that have little to no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

    I've come across many bad songs in k-pop, of course. It comes with the territory. But all of them had some things that make them not be complete trash, such as Never Ever's cool intro.

    The only k-pop song that I've heard that I didn't like AT ALL, was Twice's I'm Gonna Be A Star. This is considered the most hated Twice song, and for good reasons. The beat was annoying, the voices were annoying, the transitions were off, mixing was off, composing was off, the chorus was repetitive and takes half the length of the entire song, the lyrics were the worst thing ever, everything started and ended abruptly, everything blended badly, nothing really stood out, the instrumental almost sounds like the character select screen from a bad fighting game, it was straight up J.Y. Park trying to sound hip with the kids.

    The beginning, middle, ending, transitions, chorus... everything sounded the same.

    I'm Gonna Be A Star: Bleeding ear / 10.

    Now excuse me, I'll listen to Twicecoaster. That's some Twice gold. c:

    That feeling when I'm Gonna Be A Star was the first song I heard that I liked from Twice.

    Twice - I'm gonna be a Star, :siptear:should never have been unleashed from the studio.
    My cringe reflexes are activated whenever I happen to unfortunately listen to it.

    I'm gonna be a star was atrocious but Chaeyoung did that song the most justice it ever could be done... and even then...

    I do have to say
    it was freaking catchy
    I don't think Dahyun is that good of a rapper but her part gets stuck in my head :sweatr:

    There's also a lot of very "who the hell approved this" songs from smaller companies, but that's kinda expected when the MVs look like a high school film class could've done better.

    Also, I'm still looking for whoever approved that first part of Will You Go Out With Me by DIA
    That "rap" was atrocious, especially when I know Cathy can do hella better than that

    Pick Me from Produce 101 Season 1.

    Its just so notoriously noisy and all over the place.

    Also I was staying in Korea while this song was popular and everytime it would play in some store or club I would get a heart attack right away because the first bang.

    If this song enters your head once you will never ever get rid of it again, which is another downside to it :angryr:

    When I heard 'I'm gonna be a star' as the Sixteen intro I loved it.
    But I thought there would be more to the song then that line. I guess not lmao

    I know it's just a performance, but I feel like we can't leave out that time Twice threw YMCA into the back of their car, then put a brick on its leg to throw into a river.

    The lyrics. The concept. The song.

    Put the three together, and I kind of feel like drowning myself in a tub of acid.

    When I think about songs I don't like it doesn't even come to my mind because it's so bad i've blocked it out the first song I remember from IOI is Whatta Man.
