It feels like almost every year, without fail, there's just that one song. No, it's not the song you loved so much that when you looked at your "Most Played" on iTunes you realized you played it 482 times (that's your favorite song). No, it's not the song all your friends said was stupid and you even thought was stupid but secretly you totally couldn't stop playing it because it was actually pretty awesome (that's your guilty pleasure). No, we're not talking about that song you thought would be a hit but simply wasn't (that's a song that should have blown up). We're talking about that song you HATE.

You don't just hate it, you hate it with passion. It brings the hate out of your heart. And the more people you meet who actually like it and—worse yet—defend it, the more the hate bubbles up in your gut and spews out of your mouth. Your friends might even try to reason with you. 

"It was such a big hit though!" 

"FUCK THAT. I HATE IT."

"You just need to hear it in the club!"

"FUCK THAT. I HATE IT."

"Sorry, but I've never heard of that song."

"WELL YOU SHOULD REALLY LISTEN TO IT SO YOU CAN UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH I HATE IT." 

"But Complex named it one of the 50 Best Songs of 2013!"

"THAT MAKES ME HATE IT MORE!"

And so forth. 

Believe it or not, we here at Complex are actual human beings (not a bunch of list-making robots) and there are songs we personally hate too. And we can't always explain why we hate something. We just know we do. In fact, we personally hate some of the songs most of our co-workers actually enjoy—which is why some of the hits that made our Best Songs list actually appear on this list. So we let our writing team loose and asked them pick those songs that drove them crazy, that made them upset or just downright angry. Here's what they had to say...
