Everyone has that song that when they hear just a few bars, it can drive them up the bend.

Whether the singer's voice drives you mad, it's got a repetitive beat, or you've just it heard it too many times - there's plenty of reasons to find a song extremely annoying.

Espresso Online have compiled a list of the worst offenders... and some of them won’t surprise you.

Justin Bieber – Baby 

This 2010 song was recorded when Justin was just 15 years old, and it became a massive hit. But as much as it was loved by JB fans, there were just as many people who hated it! For a long time it was one of the most 'disliked' music videos on Youtube.

Pinkfong – Baby Shark 

Every parent’s worst nightmare. It started life as a campfire song before being revamped by South Korean entertainment company, Pinkfong. It went viral in 2016 and in 2020 it became the most-viewed video ever in that year. It now has over 10 billion views and has angered as many parents. 

Daniel Powter – Bad Day 

If you’re having a bad day, this song probably won’t help. 

The 2005 track from Canadian singer Daniel Powter is a cross between Coldplay and Train. While the lyrics are supposed to be uplifting it apparently has the opposite effect and is irritating. 

Idina Menzel – Let It Go 

Another track with a special connection for parents, the most recognisable song from the 2013 Disney film Frozen. Sung by Broadway star Idina Menzel, Let It Go is catchy, repetitive, and much as you try not to, you find yourself singing along by the second chorus. 

Rednex – Cotton Eye Joe 

Banjos, fiddles, a techno beat and a barn dance… what could be more irritating? 

In 1994, Rednex released this track which went on to become a global hit. And while it gets a dancefloor moving, it equally causes people to run away. 

Los Del Rio – Macarena 

This was the soundtrack for two years in the 90s. Originally recorded in 1992, it was a remix in 1995 which caused this to become a worldwide smash. The song reached its peak in 1996 – the song spent 60 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 and was at number 1 for 14 weeks. Chances are there's not a single wedding, Christmas party or 60th Birthday you've been to where this song hasn't filled the dancefloor. Sure we all know the moves!
