As Santa makes his list, and checks it twice, Time Magazine has been making its own list of everything related to 2016.

The publication recently released its “Top 10 worst songs” of the year, most of which were pop hits throughout 2016. From the electronic sounds of Mike Posner, to the return of Britney Spears, Time clearly dislikes pop music.

And we’re not arguing their points. Describing the melody of Gnash’s “I hate u, I love u” as  “obnoxious as an ice cream truck jingle, while the lifeless production drains it of any energy” is probably one of the best descriptions for that track. And that’s not even going into the grammar associated with that song name.

Perhaps a little surprising was Justin Timberlake’s placement as the number one worst track of the year. But what did he expect recording a song about an animated movie about trolls?

Here’s the list of Time’s worst songs of 2016. And shout out to Meghan Trainor who makes the list twice.

10. Lukas Graham – “7 Years”
9. Britney Spears – “Private Show”
8. Meghan Trainor – “No”
7. Gnash – “I hate u, I love u”
6. Mike Posner – “I Took A Pill In Ibiza”
5. Machine Gun Kelly – “Bad Things”
4. Fall Out Boy & Missy Elliott – “Ghostbusters (I’m Not Afraid)”
3. Iggy Azalea – “Team”
2. Meghan Trainor – “Mom”
1. Justin Timberlake – “Can’t Stop The Feeling”
