It's Time To Argue Over Whether Or Not These 19 Song Lyrics Are Cringey

It's a thin line between "cringey" and "catchy."

The rules here are simple: We will present you with song lyrics that some believe are "terrible" or "cringey," and you will tell us if you agree or disagree* with them. Then, we will reveal how your opinions stacked up against others, and you can all fight about it in the comments below! Sound good? Good! Here we go:

*We will also have a third option to be used if you've never heard the song to keep the ratings fair!
