The ten worst EDM songs of 2012

Categories: Lists


2. Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" (Tiesto Remix)
Kimbra's voice is lost in the pitched notes, while Gotye's heartfelt sadness is lost in the hype. Tiesto, you are a remarkable jerk for remixing this song, and I look forward to your demise. This is a prime example of taking a popular song and remixing it simply because you know everyone knows the lyrics and will overlook the terrible quality of the new version.


1. Psy's "Gangnam Style"
If ever people were looking for a reason to hate EDM, Psy gave one to the masses. "Gangnam Style" went viral like Avian flu and infected all mixes and remixing DJs around the world. It's funny for a minute, but after you realize that the song is a terrible concoction of K-pop and American lyrics that just happen to work with the song structure, the luster is lost.

Wow really? Where in "don't you worry child" does it talk about drugs? And how many non-edm songs are comforting? Tons! Not valid reasons for listing that one.

I don't know who wrote this list or decided the tracks for it but some of those tracks really don't belong on there. Some do though....
