Who Writes This Stuff? 15 Contemporary Hit Songs With Very Ridiculous Lyrics

Oftentimes we listen to songs without truly paying attention to the lyrics. The beat hooks us, the chorus ensnares us, and we find ourselves mindlessly singing along, sometimes with the most ridiculous songs; especially with the most ridiculous songs. The music industry seems unusually inundated with such songs these days, and we can’t help but laugh in humor and in awe.

Check out 15 of the most ridiculous and silly songs in recent history…

“Call Me Maybe” –  Carly Rae Jepsen

Carly Rae Jepsen sounds like a teenage girl flirting at a high school house party in this song. “Like, Omg, like call me. Like, if you want.” Yet somehow the song is a hit. Both annoying and sad. Equal measures.

“WTF “- Elle Varner


Elle sure has a knack for bringing real life to her music. She’s just so conversational in this song as she tells the audience about her bad day. Someone steals her car radio, her boyfriend is sleeping with the mail man, and she gets robbed as she’s taking a walk. Worst day ever.  This song is so ridiculously tragic it’s hilarious.

“Bandz A Make Her Dance” – Juicy J.


A song about how throwing lots money at a stripper or any woman will make her dance and basically do any demeaning thing you want her to. Yup, cause money is just as good as integrity to bad b–ches.


“Stupid Hoe” –  Nicki Minaj

Any song that has “you a stupid hoe” repeated as the chorus easily makes the most ridiculous songs list, easily.

“Tik Tok” –  Ke$ha


We know a ton of people like to drink and party but singing about getting drunk? Yeah, it’s gone a little too far when you brush your teeth with a bottle of Jack. Ke$ha sounds like the quintessential alcoholic party girl. Seriously, who goes to the club with no money? She probably spent it all on booze.

“Friday” –  Rebecca Black

Something tells us that this song was just an experiment to see just how easy it is to push someone into stardom with the help of the Internet. There’s just no way this was a serious endeavor. “Friday” is like the most mind-numbingly boring diary chronicling the every occurrence on an average day for an average teenager…or the most useless Twitter account you could imagine. “Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday/ Today i-is Friday, Friday…” Like, omg! Friday comes after Thursday? So glad they made this song.

“Don’t Trust Me”- 3oh3!


Obviously “Don’t Trust Me” is intended to be a silly song, but it also makes no sense whatsoever. From the title to the verses to the chorus. Does anyone really know what this song is about? We think this song might have just been an excuse to say the word “ho” over and over again.

“I’m S e x y and I Know It” – LMFAO 


The title says it all really, but if that’s not enough for you see lyrics:

Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle yeah
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle yeah, yeah…
Do the wiggle man
I do the wiggle man
I’m s e x y and I know it.

“I’m in Miami Trick “- LMFAO


LMFAO is pure, unadulterated musical idiocy; it’s scary but refreshing in a fun way. This song is about drinking all day…playing all night. Hey, what else are you supposed to do when you’re in Miami, Trick?

“Take One For the Team” – Kanye West


Take one for the team is the wing-man anthem. “Your girl a queen, my girl a thing. You know what though, I’mma take this one for the team.” It’s completely ridiculous in real life and in song, but that’s what makes it so amusing. Men obviously have a code that woman would NEVER follow.

“Rude Boy” –  Rihanna


This is a poorly disguised mating call for horny women everywhere. The song is catchy but singing “Can you get it up? Are you big enough?” is just overkill.

“Rack City” – Tyga


Oh, where to begin with this one? “Rack City” has got to be the most lyrically profound song of our generation. Tyga illustrates with such eloquence the debauchery he gets into in Rack City aka Vegas. “Bar fresher than a motherf—king peppermint/ Got my other b—ch f—-ing with my other b–ch.” And let’s not forget “Rack city chick, rack, rack, city chick.” The next John Lennon.

“Birthday Song” –  2Chainz and Kanye West


Not only are 2Chianz’s rhymes rudimentary on this track but the subject matter is just utterly ridiculous. “She got a big booty so I call her Big Booty” “All I want for my birthday is a big booty ho. When I die, bury me inside the Gucci store.” Maybe he should have asked for better flow instead.

“Two Reasons”-  Trey Songz

Dang, we know some hip-hop songs like to state the obvious but this one takes the cake. “Only came for the ladies and the drinks.” And we thought guys went to the club for the lines and the bathrooms.

“Gangnam Style” – PSY

The K-Pop invasion of mainstream music has begun! Somehow PSY finagled his way into the homes of millions of people around the world with his catchy tune and goofy dance moves. Aside from the fact that Gangam is apparently a city or neighborhood in South Korea, we really have no idea what this song is about, but the ridiculous music video pretty much says it all.

    It’s not that ridiculous that “Call Me Maybe” is about giving a guy your number. No, what’s ridiculous are the lines: “Before you came into my life/I missed you so bad.” That makes absolutely no sense, unless Carly Rae Jepsen is a time-traveler.
