We really didn’t need Rebecca Black to release a song on the last working day of the week.
Some of the videos uploaded to YouTube over the years have been horrible. We’ve watched devious apology videos from the beauty community and several damn music videos. It’s been a mad rush of tragic content and click-bait headlines. Luckily we have that big thumbs down button that looks sexy, but which videos got us clicked the most? Here is a list of the most hated YouTube videos:
1. YouTube Rewind 2018: everyone controls the rewind
This video failed completely. It has the most dislikes since it went live in December 2018. Overall, it has 19 million dislikes, which is quite embarrassing considering this is YouTube’s own video.
It features some of the platform’s biggest creators like Casey Neistat, Emma Chamberlain, James Charles and The Try Guys. Will Smith even made an appearance but he couldn’t even save this searing mess.
2. Baby shark
Every time I’ve heard Baby Shark since 2016, it was against my will. NOBODY wakes up in the morning and chooses to play this song and anyone who does is just as strange as the choreography for it. So it makes sense that this horrible song has such a concentration of dislikes on YouTube. It was uploaded in June 2016 by Pinkfong Kids’ Songs and Stories, since then it has racked up over 13 million likes and nearly nine billion views.
3. Justin Bieber’s Baby ft. Ludacris
It’s been 11 years since preteen Justin Bieber unleashed Baby. Any song made up exclusively of the words “baby” and “oooooh” deserved 12.2 million aversions if you ask me.
4. Johny Johnny Yes Dad
2016 was clearly a bad year for children’s music. Not only did we have to endure the horror that is Baby Shark, but also Johnny Johnny Yes Papa burst onto our YouTube trending pages in October 2016. Since uploading to YouTube, he’s racked up over five billion dollars. views and 10 million dislikes, ranking it one of the most hated YouTube videos of all time.
5. YouTube Rewind 2019: for the record
You would think YouTube would have learned since 2018, right? Well apparently not because his own YouTube video Rewind, a year after the tragically failed one, managed to get 9.5 million dislikes.
You might be thinking that at least it didn’t have as many dislikes as it did in 2018. Which is a fair thought, but the like / dislike ratio is disastrous. It only got 3.4 million likes from 115 million viewers. But at least YouTube has managed to realize that NOBODY likes Rewind videos because in 2020 they didn’t.
6. It’s Everyday Bro by Jake Paul ft. Team 10
It shouldn’t surprise you that Jake Paul’s cursed music video has been selected. Jake Paul managed to get over 284 million views, but what did he have to show for that I hear you ask? 5.3 million aversions and being part of one of the most hated YouTube videos of all time is the answer xxx
Diss track was aimed at Jake’s ex-girlfriend Alissa Purple as well as taking pictures of PewDiePie. The negative reception of the video saw it reach number two on the US iTunes chart as well as number 91 on the Billboard Hot 100. But despite all its success, the only thing I can think of is this weird British dude who says “England is my city”.
7. Friday by Rebecca Black
2011 was a tough year for the music industry. We had Where Them Girls At by David Guetta, Sexy and I Know It AND Party Rock Anthem both from LMFAO. We really didn’t need Rebecca Black to release a song on the last working day of the week.
She managed to get 3.9 million dislikes and the first comment reads, “Whoever wrote this song is undeniably a lyrical intellectual.” I think that says it all.
8. Gangnam Style by Psy
My condolences to the four billion people on the planet who had to sit down (and quite possibly be brainwashed to learn the moves for) Gangnam Style.
9. Cuties Netflix Trailer
Who remembers last summer when Netflix was canceled for ditching Cuties? There were so many issues with this movie, but we already knew that when the trailer dropped because over 2.3 million of us didn’t like it.
10. Anaconda by Nicki Minaj
I’m actually quite distressed that this is on YouTube’s list of most hated videos. But luckily, there are only 1.7 million inches down out of the billion people who have seen this musical masterpiece.
So this is it. These are some of the most hated YouTube videos of all time. Some might not surprise you and some might make you want to question everything you know in this world to be true. But no matter how you feel, we can all agree on one thing Rebecca Black should never have done on Friday.
