The Most Misogynistic Lyrics From Music This Past Year

U Want It GIF from Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines(via)

There’s a new animated series called Chozen premiering tonight (at 10:30pm on FX) starring Bobby Moynihan as an aspiring rapper, freshly out of jail and eager to lay down some beats that are intentionally, comically offensive. It sounds like a pretty funny show, but after the year we’ve had in music, I think it’ll be tough for them to successfully parody those types of lyrics without verging into actually degrading territory.

It’s kind of like how The Bachelor has gotten so ridiculous at this point that even Burning Love can’t go far enough in making fun of it. There was so much shockingly misognynistic material out there in 2013 that it’ll be tough to top. (Or bottom? Probably bottom.) So much, in fact, that you’ve probably hopefully forgotten all of it. But it’s hardly a Monday without a rage spiral or two, so I figured I’d remind you of some of the best/worst hits of the year, in the form of the most misogynistic lyrics from the past twelve months.

Take a deep breath, grit your teeth…and here we go.

1. ‘Blurred Lines’ – Robin Thicke

I love it when a married man and father of one rubs his crotch up against Miley Cyrus‘ gyrating ass and tells me, “I know you want it”. And don’t even get me started on the topless women prancing around that video.

2. ‘I Hit It First’ — Ray J

 ”I had her head going North and her ass going south but now the bitch chose to go West.”

A tasteful little ditty that Ray J wrote up to remind the world that he had a respectful, loving relationship with Kim Kardashian before Kanye West did.

3. ‘Fine China’ — Chris Brown

“It’s alright / I’m not dangerous / When you’re mine / I’ll be generous / You’re irreplaceable / A collectible / Just like fine china.”

What a great reminder that A. if you give your man what he wants, he’ll be generous and not dangerous and violent and B. women are collectible objects. Great work, Chris.

4. ‘You Don’t Even Know It’ — Rick Ross

“Put Molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it

I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it.”

The worst thing about women is sometimes they’re not in the mood for champagne and having fun, so you have to think of clever ways to have sex with them without their knowledge! Rick Ross apparently recommends date rape drugs.

5. ‘On Sight’ — Kanye West

“A monster about to come alive again
Soon as I pull up and park the Benz
We get this bitch shaking like Parkinsons”

This man is a father as well, so I can’t wait for North West to get old enough that she’s asking questions that ho her daddy got head from at Fountainbleau. Was that mommy?? Facepalm.

      I’m in Nashville, and I’ve been writing emails to the producers at our local stations about how horrible “Redneck Crazy” is and how it promotes domestic violence. A total of NONE of them cared. This is actually the first article I’ve come across anywhere that mentions it being a terrible and scary message.

        #7 is why I stopped dating guys from my hometown. Not because of shit like that happening. Nah, the guys were a bunch of dicks who didn’t want to date a girl with opinions of her own (and they had the initial impression that I was all shy and sweet and not at all smarter than they are). But it was because they were still super-sexist, and rednecks rarely take responsibility for things they do when they’re angry, so…

      I kind of figured about the Lady Gaga song and Blurred Lines, but I hadn’t heard of the rest of these. Wow… wow.

      Chozen looks terrible, and I’m tired of the commercials for it.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I don’t know…I’m not convinced one way or the other.

      Have you heard the song Used 2 by 2 Chainz?

      Chorus is: “I still fuck em like I used too
      I need to put that shit on YouTube
      Cause you know we got that dance floor crazy
      Single ladies come and have my baby…
      Hey my nigga come and grab your lady”

      And for the grande finale, one of the verses contains: “Shawty know how to strip yeah, for the rent yeah
      Tryna do a split yeah, for the rent yeah
      Can you do a split yeah, on a dick yeah
      You can’t do it with a dick in you?
      You can’t do it like that with a dick in you?”

      This song is so god awful… lyrics wise and “rapping” wise that it makes me laugh whenever I hear it. I mean, what else could you do?

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Oh man. That’s foul.

    • TwentiSomething Mom

      Wait…that last one was that real?

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        They’re all real, sadly.

      • kittymom

        No, it’s satire, or comedy, or something. Please. Right? Please…. :(

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I know.

    • April

      Ugh… That Taylor Swift song is still catchy though.

    • Foxy Brown

      In reference to number 1: Has anyone else come across this gem of a post on Tumblr?

      Pretty ashamed to admit how long it took me to ~get it~ but the post itself, along with its 160,000+ notes, tickled me :)

    • Tracey

      That Taylor Swift song is two or three years old though?

    • gothicgaelicgirl

      and to think, people thought Led Zep music promoted suicide lol
