|S-Tier Songs Off Crappy Albums|
Thought I'd take a break from ranking different discographies and do something a little special. Recently hit 1200 ratings so let's just call this a celebration of sorts. A couple things to note though:
Angelic 2 The Core
"Crappy" is defined by an album that is either straight-up bad, immensely disappointing, or an album that is perceived by the general public of being terrible.
Remain in Light
"S-Tier" is defined as a song that is top notch. I'm not just considering guilty pleasures (though there are still lots of those). The songs I consider "S-Tier" have to legitimately slap, and slap HARD.
Peppa's Adventures: The Album
Lastly - this is in no particular order. I went through my rankings and added songs as I thought of them. Enough wasting time!!
|4||All Time Low|
Last Young Renegade
LIFE OF THE PARTY
This is All Time Low going full on pop, and doing it WELL. Every now and then I hear this song and am tempted to give LYR another shot, but I don't want to just disappoint myself again.
|5||Fall Out Boy|
American Beauty/American Psycho
THE KIDS AREN'T ALRIGHT
Stump just sounds so good on this track, and the chorus is god damn catchy.
Okay yeah, this is pure guilty pleasure material. Not ashamed of it.
ROMAN'S REVENGE (FEAT. EMINEM)
Another guilty pleasure. This one I'm a little ashamed of.
...READY FOR IT?
Okay yeah, the rapped verses are a bit iffy, but this is otherwise top-notch Taylor Swift in my book.
|9||Thirty Seconds to Mars|
Love Lust Faith + Dreams
UP IN THE AIR
This song is stupid and slaps way harder than it has any right to. I saw this live too when I was younger - maybe that's why I still like it.
One More Light
ONE MORE LIGHT
No explanation needed really. This song hits so much harder since Bennington passed.
TRIPPING DOWN THE FREEWAY
I could've put a few songs from this trainwreck of an album on this list. Even when Weezer's at their worst, they always churn out a couple decent songs.
Love Is Dead
Man, my hopes were SO HIGH after hearing this opening track, only for the rest of the album to nosedive in quality. This is legit one of the band's best tracks though.
BURY ME/SELLOUTS (FEAT. DANNY WORSNOP)
Yeah this is cheating but I don't care. Bury Me is a pop slapper and Sellouts is possibly the best "heavy" song that Breathe Carolina ever made. Kind of ironic that the whole song was about how they weren't going to be heavy anymore though. Guess they were true to their word.
|14||Falling in Reverse|
The Drug in Me Is You
THE DRUG IN ME IS YOU
God dammit Radke is such a shit songwriter most of the time but he knows how to write a killer hook.
Yeah it's cheesy as hell, but this is SUCH a good opener and it has such a satisfying climactic ending.
KILL THE NOISE
Jacoby Shaddix is a bit like Ronnie Radke - even if most of the songs he writes nowadays are trash, he still knows how to write a killer chorus.
Yeah this is pretty much the same explanation as #11 lol
Father of All Motherfuckers
MEET ME ON THE ROOFTOP
The production is ass but this is an otherwise top-notch Green Day track.
The High End of Low
Oh come on, how can you NOT see that crazy-ass title and not immediately love it a little? All joking aside, I can thank Saints Row for turning me onto this song.
Born This Way
This is easily Gaga's worst album, but Judas would be a highlight even on her best releases.
808s and Heartbreak
Yeah yeah I know this isn't a universally panned album or anything, I just didn't like it. With that said, Love Lockdown is still one I come back to from time-to-time.
The Classic Symptoms of a Broken Spirit
BURN DOWN MY HOUSE
Wait a minute, I thought butt-rock was bad? How can there be a GOOD iteration of it??? Excuse me?????
NEVER REALLY OVER
Lol remember when this album got hella review bombed before it came out and had everyone thinking this was gonna be Emotion 2.0? Well pepperidge farm remembers. Anyway, this is a killer opener.
Push and Shove
I'm aware that this is hardly even a real No Doubt song, but it's such a good pop track that I don't even care.
|25||Twenty One Pilots|
TEAR IN MY HEART
I'm sure if I gave this album another listen I wouldn't hate it as much as I used to, but god dammit it was so overplayed for like 2 years I don't know if I feel like it. I love this song because of how much of an earworm it is but I also kinda hate it for the same reason.
|26||The Naked and Famous|
Man, I LOVED their debut album and have been underwhelmed by nearly everything else they've released since. But I'm not gonna lie, Bury Us reminds me of the good ole days of PM, AY
(went with this one because the avg rating of this album is lower)
CAN'T STOP PARTYING (FEAT. LIL WAYNE)
DO IT, TRY IT/GO!
The Black Album
CHANGE (IN THE HOUSE OF FLIES)
The Seldom Seen Kid
GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE
|38||Primitive Radio Gods|
STANDING OUTSIDE A BROKEN PHONE BOOTH WITH MONEY IN MY HAND
THE UNNAMED FEELING
Rage for Order
I WILL REMEMBER
Lead Sails Paper Anchor
BLOW (this album had the lowest avg of the three you suggested)
LOVING THE ALIEN
|44||Bring Me the Horizon|
That's the Spirit
WHERE DWELLS SADNESS
Chuckles and Mr. Squeezy
