*Time magazine put out its top 10 worst songs of 2016, and three of the top five just so happen to be artists who have been accused of appropriating black culture: Machine Gun Kelly, Iggy Azalea and Justin Timberlake.

Timberlake topped the list with his breezy summer single “Can’t Stop the Feeling.”

“The insipid earworm—which was ostensibly recorded for an animated movie about trolls—became essentially unavoidable at any social gathering where someone in attendance was likely to use the phrase “cut loose.” Forget the feeling—just please, please stop this song,” wrote Time.

Azalea’s “Team” came in third, while Kelly’s “Bad Things” ranked fifth in the survey.

Of “Team,” Time wrote:

“Iggy Azalea’s slow-moving wannabe rap never picks up momentum, instead settling into a yawn-worthy rhythm that relies on heavy use of synth to provide needed texture. Even the chorus fails to switch it up. And while it’s good that Azalea’s lyrics aren’t particularly offensive, they just end up as forgettable filler.”

Meghan Trainor’s “Mom” was Time’s second worst song of 2016, and “Ghostbusters (I’m Not Afraid)” from Fall Out Boy ft. Missy Elliott sits a No. 4.

“Sure, we were all rooting for the ‘Ghostbusters’ movie,” wrote Time, but this Hot Topic-friendly track, which features singer Patrick Stump repeatedly yelping the phrase “I’m not afraid” while a nameless chorus whispers the word “Ghostbusters!” is not the look. Poor Missy Elliott’s guest verse does nothing to improve the end result. This reboot deserved better.”
