“Friday,” Rebecca Black

In the prime example of how YouTube stardom can go terribly, terribly wrong, Rebecca Black’s “Friday” has over 72 million views – in which 80 percent of rankings gave it a “dislike.” The notoriously auto-tuned song gets it wrong on so many levels, from lyrics like, “Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday, Today is Friday, Friday,” followed by, “Tomorrow is Saturday, and Sunday comes after…wards, to Black’s questionable vocal ability. Then there’s the truly painful music video which makes this song’s inclusion on the list a no-brainer.
