The videos people love to hate more than any others

The only thing people love more than YouTube videos is disliking videos. Here's the latest edition of the top ten most disliked YouTube videos in the history of the site - featuring a couple of brothers you may just recognise...

10. Gangnam Style

Yep! The price you pay for having the first video to hit one billion views is that your ratings (both likes and dislikes) will be equally as massive. Unlike the other videos on this list, the dislikes here are more of a sign of the massive viral nature of this South Korean megahit and less to do with people actually disliking it. As you were, Psy.

9. Logan Paul - So Sorry (1.8 million dislikes)

Logan Paul's 'So Sorry' video is the first video released in 2018 to break into the list of the 50 most disliked YouTube videos in history. Pretty impressive(?) seeing as we're not even halfway through the year yet.

'So Sorry' was Logan's formal apology following his infamous 'suicide forest' video. Despite widespread backlash, Logan actually GAINED subscribers after the incident, confirming once again that nothing matters any more.

8. Cortando o Botão do YouTube

This video from YouTuber Aruan Felix shows him destroying his silver play button... for some reason. With more than 2 million dislikes, and counting, it seems that no-one else understand what he was playing at either.

7. How It Is (Wap Bap …)

This song from German beauty and lifestyle YouTuber Bianca Heinicke was a late contender for the crown of 'new Friday' (more on 'Friday' a little later). The video is highly produced, but the music sounds like it was taken straight out of an Apple commercial from 2006. If you want to see what all the (angry) fuss is about, take a little listen for yourself:

6. Friday

Here it is, the grandaddy of all disliked songs. The first music video that YouTube really came together to dislike. Happily the backlash didn't hold back Rebecca, and now she has a successful YouTube and music career, in spite of all the mockery.

Song was proper crap tho.

5. Despacito

Much like Gangnam Style, this gargantuan music video is on this list simply by virtue of the eye-watering number of views it has amassed. And hey, when you have the most viewed music video of all time, the dislikes probably don't matter that much to you.

4. Can this video get 1 million dislikes?

PewDiePie enters this list by, frankly, cheating. How dare he.

It's no surprise that a video from the world's biggest YouTuber asking people to dislike it would attract a huge amount of dislikes. Well done Felix.

4. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Reveal Trailer

2016 was the worst year for an alarming number of reasons, and among them was the fact that YouTube really reach peak salt. Fresh off the back of attacking a Ghostbusters trailer, YouTube audiences turned their itchy dislike fingers to the trailer for that year's instalment of the never-ending game series Call Of Duty. In their defence though, the game did look a bit rubbish.

3. It's Everyday Bro

What can we say about Jake Paul that hasn't been screamed by countless YouTubers swinging their fists at the sky. Jake likes many things: clickbait, fast cars, white clothing, saying the n-word in leaked videos and, of course, singing.

This memorable ode to doing things everyday (bro) worm its way into our collective consciousness like some kind of flesh eating virus back in 2017, but it somehow feels like it has been around forever.

2. YouTube Rewind 2018

As soon as the Rewind video for 2018 dropped dropped last week, fans immediately called it "the worst ever YouTube Rewind". Featuring several cringey moments and going a little OTT on the Fortnite references, Rewind 2018 completely ignored some of the biggest moments on YouTube for 2018 and within a week became one of the most disliked videos of all time on YouTube.

1. Baby

You'd hardly be able to tell now with all his successful club anthems and non-teenage fans, but there was a time where it was very much in style to really, really loathe Justin Bieber.

Seriously, back in the early 2000's people built their entire personalities around how much they hated Bieber and all his stupid music which was made for his audience of teenage girls, which meant it was bad because everything that teenage girls like is viewed as inherently bad because of some kind of weird sexism that we still haven't worked through as a society.

But anyway, let's not get into that now.

Let's just focus on the fact that people reeeeeeeeeally liked to dislike this song. More so, in fact, than any other YouTube video in human history:
