Landing at number one on this list as the most disliked video on YouTube of all time is the YouTube Rewind of 2018. It instantly went viral when it came out, and not in a good way. The video itself featured many people who made big videos on YouTube that year, but the public was not fans. There were a lot of hate comments, and the video still generates dislikes to this day. The most disliked video on YouTube has over 20 million dislikes!

2. Baby Shark Dance by Pinkfong Baby Shark

There probably isn’t a person on earth who has kids that don’t know this song. The original version of this song came out in 2015, but it didn’t really become that popular until the ‘Baby Shark Dance by Pinkfong Baby Shark’ video came out with the dancing children. This song blew up, there have been so many remakes and remixes since this video came out. No doubt, parents across the globe have had enough of the song, which is why it has over 19 million dislikes, making it the second most-disliked song in YouTube history. 

3. Baby by Justin Bieber ft Ludacris

Justin Bieber’s record-breaking hit ‘Baby’ is the next most disliked video on YouTube, which doesn’t come as much of a surprise to those who were around in 2010. This song broke all kinds of records and sent fans of the young singer into a frenzy. It gained a lot of media attention, and with this attention also came the dislikes. Some people loved it, some people hated it, one thing is for sure, the young singer’s life was never the same. 

‘Baby’ by Justin Bieber featuring Ludacris made the young Canadian pop star a household name, for better or for worse. This song lands in the number 3 spot on this list with over 15 million dislikes!

4. Johny Johny Yes Papa by LooLoo Kids

The next most disliked video on YouTube is ‘Johny Johny Yes Papa by LooLoo Kids’ which is another children’s song. There seems to be a running theme throughout this list. I guess a lot of parents seem to hate these songs after hearing them for the hundredth time. This catchy kids video that has the same rhythm as ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ has the comments turned off, so it’s not clear as to why this video has over 13 million dislikes. 

5. Bath Song by CoComelon

This seemingly innocent children’s song has gotten a lot of backlash and dislikes, making it number 5 on our list. It seems to be a mash-up of one classic children’s song and another popular one. Nearly everyone knows the tune to “Old McDonald Had a Farm” and the now ever-popular “Baby Shark”. 

The video is a quite pleasant animation where an older brother helps his younger brother bathe, and they sing about it joyfully in the tub. While this seems pleasant enough, it seems to have rubbed enough people the wrong way, racking up over 12 million dislikes. 

6. YouTube Rewind 2019: For the Record by YouTube

YouTube’s rewinds were a big thing in the 2010s, people used to wait all year to see what the team at YouTube had put together. While this is not as disliked as the 2018 YouTube rewind, it still had more than enough dislikes to end up on this list. It has 9.6 million dislikes to date. Opinions were a little torn, some gave dislikes to continue the dislike hype from the previous year, and some seemed to genuinely dislike YouTube’s efforts with this rewind. 

7. Learning Colors Colorful Eggs on a Farm by Мирошка ТВ

This cheerful children’s video has the tune of “Old McDonald Had a Farm” running in the background. It also has a nice animation with eggs becoming different colors. It seems to be an educational video that teaches Russian children different colors. I guess parents in Russia didn’t seem to enjoy this video, as it has over 9.1 million dislikes. 

8. Sadak 2 Trailer by FoxStarHindi

Ending our list of most disliked videos of all time is a trailer for a movie called “Sadak 2”. It is an Indian movie that seems to be filled with action scenes, heartwarming stories, and stories of revenge. It is not quite clear from the first glance as to why this trailer would have this many dislikes. 

After reading the comment section, there seems to be some political debate about nepotism. It seems that the dislikes were intentional, not that the movie is necessarily bad, but I guess some people have a problem with the casting. This trailer, even though well done, has racked up 1.9 million dislikes.
