List Rules Only songs that dominated the airwaves in 2013, as opposed to any other year

These are the most annoyingly overplayed songs of 2013, ranked by people like you. These are the Most Overplayed Songs of 2013 - but not necessarily the most annoying. Sure, if I hear "Blurred Lines" one more time, I'm gonna drive off the nearest bridge, but if we're being honest, a few times.Thinking back on the most annoying songs of 2013, I remember a lot of hip hop / rap crossovers making their ways onto the mainstream airwaves. Just check out Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. They had two songs on this list. And the ladies have been busy singing their precious little hearts out about fluttering hearts (like Lorde and Katy Perry) and breakups (like Taylor Swift per usual). Boy bands like One Direction have been as overplayed as ever. The same goes for bands like Capital Cities, The Neighbourhood and P!ink.

Vote on these overplayed, annoying, yet popular songs of 2013 so radio stations, commercial-makers, and department stores can confidently, finally, take them out of their rotations. Feel free to add any that I missed - though I'll be amazed if you heard a single song this year that's not already on this list.
