Another Top 10 Annoyingly Catchy Songs

It will take days to get these songs out of your head. Welcome to, and today we are counting down our picks for Another Top 10 Annoyingly Catchy Songs.
For this list, we’re looking at songs that you just can’t get out of your head from the first time you hear them. If there is an entry that didn’t make this list, be sure to check out our original list of the Top 10 Annoyingly Catchy Songs.

#10: “Sorry For Party Rocking” (2012)

Time to start off this list with a little bit of party rock. The fourth single off of their second album, the track is nonstop electronic and dance-pop chaos. Redfoo, Sky Blu, dancing zebras, YouTubers Rhett and Link, and David Hasselhoff? Pure chaos. “Sorry For Party Rocking” is the perfect excuse for all millennials when its time to turn the music down. Unfortunately, “Sorry For Party Rocking” was the final single before LMFAO’s hiatus in 2012, so they may have rocked the party a little too hard.

#9: “Shake It Off” (2014)
Taylor Swift

Just when you think she was gone Tay Tay is back with another annoying hit. Taylor Swift’s lead single from her hugely popular album 1989, this track will have you dancing, lip syncing, or singing along even if you aren’t a fan. It’s that infectious. Unlike a majority of entries on this list, the track was praised for its style by critics and won multiple awards, but many were also offended by the track’s music video’s references to twerking. Many fans consider “Shake It Off” to be Taylor Swift’s official goodbye to her country roots, while others consider it to be an exciting new chapter in Taylor’s career.

#8: “I Gotta Feeling” (2009)
Black Eyed Peas

Produced by DJ David Guetta, and featuring the classical auto-tune sounds of, “I Gotta Feeling”, is a modern pop classic. The second single from the group’s fifth album, you couldn’t go anywhere without having the track buzzing around. While the song received endless radio airplay upon release, this only helped the song’s commercial success, eventually selling over fifteen million copies. The song was also nominated for two Grammys and won one for Best Group Pop Performance. No matter how much we hate it, we are not afraid to at least hum along.

#7: “Surfin’ Bird” (1963)
The Trashmen

The bird is most certainly the word. This surf rock number was originally released in 1963 by American surf rock group The Trashmen and peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Fun fact, “Bird of the Word” is actually a mash up of two songs, The Rivingtons “Bird is the Word” and “Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow”. Nonetheless, we can’t help but just keep singing. Whether it’s Peter Griffin’s rendition of the song, or The Ramones’ cover, there’s no way you won’t have this song stuck in your head after just one listen.

#6: “Who Let the Dogs Out” (2000)
Baha Men

Face it, if you were growing up in the 2000s, you have heard of our next entry. “Who Let The Dogs Out” is a bouncy pop track that is as synonymous with the warm weather and fun vibes of summer. The sunshine, the catchy beat, and plenty of dogs, what is not to love? The track is notable as it is one of the best selling singles of the 2000s, yet it did not reach #1. How did that happen? Beats us. Also considered by many publications to be one of the most annoying songs of all time, we would agree, although we would be lying if we said it wasn’t catchy as hell.

#5: “Hollaback Girl” (2005)
Gwen Stefani

Here comes Gwen Stefani bringing her “silly dance record” for our next entry. The third single from Stefani’s debut solo album, “Hollaback Girl” is a call back to 1980s dance music that music fans had been waiting for. Fans and critics were split, as the track became the first digital download to sell one million copies, despite most critics panning Stefani and the track. We can’t help but love it though, but if someone could let us know what a “Hollaback Girl” is that would be great.

#4: “Mickey” (1982)
Toni Basil

Our next entry is brought to us by one of the best one hit wonders of the 80s. Toni Basil brings us this pop number about the super fine Mickey. If you were listening to pop music during the 1980s, there is no way you weren’t caught singing along about your own love interest. While originally thought to be about The Monkees lead vocalist Mickey Dolenz, this claim was later disputed by Basil as the two only met briefly. “Mickey” actually reached number one and number two in the US and UK respectively, but unfortunately is Basil’s only hit to date.

#3: “Never Going To Give You Up” (1987)
Rick Astley

No, don’t worry, you aren’t being Rick Rolled. The debut single from British singer Rick Astley, “Never Going To Give You Up” quickly became a worldwide number one hit as well as becoming Astley’s signature track. While the song was popular on initial release, the song saw a resurgence of popularity via the “rick roll” meme and spread across the Internet like wildfire. “Never Going To Give You Up” rick rolled its way into our hearts and is not leaving anytime soon.

#2: “Sandstorm” (1999)

Another song that become re-popularized by the internet, “Sandstorm” showcases some of the best that late 1990s electronic music has to offer. Produced by Finnish DJ Darude, this trance track was a global hit after its release just before the new millennium. With a classic high speed music video and a beat that will have you raving, what “Sandstorm” lacks is lyrics it makes up for in pure nostalgia. Just remember, if you don’t know the name of a song, it’s probably Darude’s “Sandstorm”.

Before we annoy ourselves with our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.

“Milkshake” (2003)

“Happy” (2013)
Pharrell Williams

“Nookie” (1999)
Limp Bizkit

“The Bad Touch” (1999)
The Bloodhound Gang

“Bills, Bills, Bills” (1999)
Destiny’s Child

#1: “Gangnam Style” (2012)

The most viewed song on Youtube, the world couldn’t get enough of this catchy K-pop tune back when it was released in the summer of 2012. Psy’s 18th single, this song features an infectious beat, hilarious dance moves, and some playful vocals from the Korean superstar himself. We may hate getting this track stuck in our head with a fiery passion, but we still will sing and dance along. Inspiring flash mobs and dancers around the world, “Gangnam Style” is a defining song of the 2010’s all thanks to the power of the internet.
