The year's just a little more than half over, but that apparently was plenty of time for music to provide us with some head-scratchingly awful lyrics.
Here's some of my favorite worst-of-the-worst (and often NSFW) so far.
"Fancy," Iggy Azalea featuring Charli XCX
"And my flow retarded, each beat did depart it / Swagger on stupid, I can't shop in no department."
"She Looks So Perfect," 5 Seconds of Summer
"You look so perfect standing there / In my American Apparel underwear / And I know now, that I'm so down / Your lipstick stain is a work of art / I got your name tattooed in an arrow heart."
"Break Free," Ariana Grande
"You were better, deeper / I was under a spell / Like a deadly fear I am, babe / On the highway to hell."
"All For Nothing," Linkin Park
"You're talk, but let me show you where to put your paranoia / You're joking I don't have a half a sucker bone to throw yah."
"Animal Ambition," 50 Cent
"Got the eye of the tiger I'm on that animal s--- / I got the heart of a lion and the looks of an elephant / Damn scared of rats, but I'm ready for anything."
"Sand Dollars," 311
"I’ve been listening to sea shells / to hear the stories that they tell / of high times and tide swells / that have yet to occur."
