It sounded like some kid who thinks he's an old soul who's been through some deep, transformative journey. The "7 YEARS OLD" try hard gospel inspired hook really drives it home.

Appreciate you pointing me in that direction. I could write an essay on how much I hate it now, lol

Don't worry, I'll save you the essay by pointing towards Todd In The Shadows' video essay critique of "7 Years" :D

I think I've reached the point of changing over to classic rock radio.

K.Flay is awesome though

Pick a Nicki Minaj "song". Any one. Why this talentless hack still has a career is a mystery to me.

It's a song about how the singer is a loser and hates everyone. Every verse ends with "middle fingers in the air." Every verse is the exact same. It's like an anthem for douchebags.

Is it supposed to be ironic? I don't get it.

The worst popular song I've ever heard is that song that goes...
"La la la... Whatever.. la la la... It doesn't matter... La La la... Okay... La la la... WE'RE GOING AT IT TONIGHT... There's a party on the top of the Hollywood sign"

I will never get the hate for that song. I wouldn't call it good by any means but it never bothered me.
