My god. It's like a who's who of people who tortured me during my time counting inventory at retail stores. John Mayer singing about daughters in a creepy bedroom voice, Kesha singing about how awesome she is for getting drunk at parties. Just staring at the manifest is triggering my PTSD. :lol:

1. Robyn
2. Amy Winehouse
3. Adele
4. Cee Lo Green (Does his GB stuff count?)
5. Usher

1. Robyn (Easy winner here, Body Talk really elevated her status as the best in pop)
2. Britney Spears (For the fantastic album Blackout, the rest is garbage)
3. Lily Allen (One solid album but it's enough in this group)
4. Kelly Clarkson (A few good/great songs, the rest isn't very good)
5. Coldplay (A few good songs, the rest is pretty awful)

I'm not complaining or anything, but Annie should have been on this list. She's somewhat of a favorite on this forum.

1) Justin Timberlake
2) Robyn
3) Coldplay
4) Lily Allen
5) Fall Out Boys

I really like the top 4, it's a pleasure to vote for them (well, at least, it's not a problem at all).
Picking a number 5 was harder, it mainly was between Amy and FOB but there are 4 FOB singles which are real guilty pleasures (Dance, Dance, Sugar We're Going Down, Thks fr th mmrs and This Ain't a Scene). And there videos are fun too.

It's just as fun to list to 5 worst in this category. Here's mine:


1. Bruno Mars
2. The Fray
3. Ke$ha
4. Train
5. Fall Out Boy

Train is the creator of the worst mainstream hit of the last five years, "Hey Soul Sister." But Bruno Mars is the worst in the business right now--I cannot stand him on any level.

I actually like Hey Soul Sister.

I would say the worst mainstream hits in years have to be that noxious schmaltzy Michael Buble song and a lot of the overly loopy dance pop songs, like, I don't know the name, but "DJ, turn it UP UP UP UP UP".

My 5 worst aren't dissimilar to yours:

I tried really hard to make a bottom 5, but each time I kept finding that there was at least a song or two that I liked (or at least tolerated) by each artist I considered. Pink? Well "Get the Party Started" is a decent song...Avril Lavigne? I guess that "Complicated" is pretty good....Katy Perry? "Hot N Cold" and "Teenage Dream" are alright by me. And eventually, as I went through the list I realized that every artist here, no matter how much I might dislike them has at least one redeeming song. Except for Ke$ha.

Just.....fuck Ke$ha. Seriously.

Also, how did Rihanna not get in this round?

Justin Timberlake (8)
P!nk (11)
Katy Perry (17)
Coldplay (56)
Nelly Furtado (61)
