Think of a song that came out in the last 12 months that really bugs you. Like, you want to slit your neck with a CD-level of annoyance. It’s highly likely that the first song that came to mind was LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem,” which doesn’t make me want to party, isn’t rock, and is a sad commentary on what’s considered an “anthem.” But “Party Rock” is inexplicably popular, so much so that it’s been on Billboard’s Hot 100 — based on the number of radio sales and plays — for over a year now (56 weeks specifically). That’s something not even the Beatles accomplished.

Here are 15 other recent songs that remained on the Hot 100 for more than 52 weeks. Get ready, because most of them are pretty awful.

“He Wasn’t Man Enough” by Toni Braxton (74 weeks)

“How Do I Live” by LeAnn Rimes (68 weeks)

“Picture” by Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock (68 weeks)

“Rolling in the Deep” by Adele (65 weeks)

“Hollaback Girl” by Gwen Stefani (62 weeks)

“I’m Real” by Jennifer Lopez w/ Ja Rule (62 weeks)

“Higher” by Creed (57 weeks)
