Artists use hardships and breakups as inspiration for their music, and some of the best (and worst) songs are the outcome of traumatic experiences.
We all need a good breakup song to help mend our hearts when things go south, but these aren't those songs. Some are so awful and cheesy that they need recognition all on their own. Here are 10 cheesy breakup songs that WON'T aid you through heartbreak:
Taylor Swift - "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"
"We are never ever ever getting back together. We are never ever ever getting back together." This incredibly cheesy song was nominated for Record of the Year at the Grammys. WTF.
'N Sync - "Bye Bye Bye"
"You may hate me, but it ain't no lie. Baby, bye bye bye."
Kelly Clarkson - "Einstein"
"Dumb plus dumb equals you." Great use of syntax, Kelly.
Justin Bieber - "Baby"
"And I'm like baby baby baby ooh, like baby baby baby nooo."
Cee Lo Green - "Forget You"
"I guess he's an Xbox and I'm more Atari."
Ray J - "I Hit It First"
"And if you were to come back to me girl, we'll make another movie." Ooh, shots fired.
Miley Cyrus - "7 Things"
"The seven things I hate about you: your hair, your eyes, your old Levi's."
Selena Gomez - "Bang Bang Bang"
"My new boy used to be a model. He looks way better than you."
P!nk - "So What"
"I'm alright, I'm just fine. And you're a tool. So, so what, I am a rock star."
Taylor Swift - "Dear John"
"But I took your matches before fire could catch me. So don't look now, I'm shining like fireworks." We had to end our list with another Taylor track. This entire song is cringeworthy.
