Worst movie soundtracks ever - the top 10


We’ve all watched a movie that would have been so much better without the soundtrack. But you may not have heard the worst yet! For your entertainment and aural protection, we’ve compiled a list of the worst movie soundtracks ever. Enjoy!

  1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze
    worst movie soundtracks - movie clapperboardThe song Ninja Rap, performed by Vanilla Ice in this film, will certainly make your ears ooze. In the movie, the song is improvised by Vanilla Ice when a battle between the Ninja Turtles and their enemies spills into a nightclub.

    There is a rumour that Vanilla Ice made the song up on the spot when the scene was being filmed, which could explain lyrics like “Yo! It’s the green machine, gonna rock the town without being seen. Have you ever seen a turtle go down?”. Not forgetting the “Go ninja, go ninja go” phrase that’s repeated more times than we cared to count.  


  2. The Addams Family
    When it come to the film The Addams Family, MC Hammer’s Addams Groove is arguably the most cringeworthy song on one of the worst movie soundtracks.

    The song is a remake of the popular TV theme song that starts with two minutes of unbearable rapping, followed by the chorus being repeated over, and over, and over. Need we say more?


  3. Batman
    worst movie soundtracks - cinemaThe song Batdance by Prince puts the soundtrack of this movie to shame. Played during a duel between the film’s characters the song comes across as comical rather than serious and intense, with bizarre keyboard sounds and Prince yelling things like “Get the funk up! Batmaaaaan!”.



  4. Spider Man 2
    While not a bad song on its own, Nickelback’s Hero was certainly not the best choice for the soundtrack of Spider Man 2. The chilled and dreamy track with lyrics like “I’m so high, I can hear heaven” completely fails to capture Spiderman’s excitement upon discovering his new skills. In fact, it makes his superhuman capabilities seem like a yawn.


  5. Wild Wild West
    No one would dispute Will Smith’s success with Men in Black in which he starred and for which he rapped the main tune. However, he wasn’t quite able to replicate this success with Wild Wild West (perhaps he should’ve quit while he was ahead?).

    His track Wild Wild West was so bad, it actually won a Golden Raspberry for the Worst Original Song.


  6. Alvin & The Chipmunks
    worst movie soundtracks - popcornProducing an entire CD “sung” by chipmunks? We struggle to figure out how the producers thought this was a good idea. But they did, in effect making one of the worst movie soundtracks of all time.

    In short, the entire album consists of helium-inspired remakes of well-known songs like “I love Rock ‘n Roll” and “Funkytown”. Make it stop!


  7. Spies like us
    In the title song of this movie, Paul McCartney disappoints with lyrics like “Hey, hey, what do you say?” and “Ooh, ooh, what do you do? Nobody else can dance like you”. Was he even trying? We think not.


  8. Xanadu
    worst movie soundtracks - film stripGenerally considered to be one of the worst films ever made, Xanadu also features one of the worst movie soundtracks. For example, the film’s title track, “Xanadu” is a disco number that will make babies cry.




  9. The Road to El Dorado
    This film’s soundtrack is generally criticised for being very techno-like and repetitive and lacking a single solid track. While kids might still enjoy the film, this is no Lion King. Sorry Elton John, you tried.


  10. Ghostbusters
    worst movie soundtracks - film setThere was widespread excitement around the new Ghostbusters movie, however the remake of the title song turned out to be a huge disappointment. Featuring Fall Out Boy‘s Patrick Stump the track has a pop-feel with Patrick constantly repeating the phrase “I’m not afraid” while voices in the background whisper “Ghostbusters!”. Not even Missy Elliot’s guest verse could save this song. 

If you own any of the worst movie soundtracks, you have our sympathy for the torture your ears have had to endure. But remember, you don’t have to keep these albums in your home. Why not store them with us and make room for something more soothing in your CD rack?
