The 5 Worst Songs of 2016

New York magazine’s list of the worst songs of the year features three classic tracks, including the one about a woman being raped. 

The list also includes songs that, in the opinion of many, were just plain awful:  “All I Want for Christmas is a Good Death,” by the Black Keys, for example, which features a string of violent acts in the name of death; and “Pigs in the Cradle,” by The Who.

The list, by the way, does not include songs that were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Rock Performance, but for which the nominee actually won the award.
