Contrary to the pure, old fashioned clips of future’s past that remind us why YouTube is just downright fun are the uploads that objectively deserve to be disliked. Often characterized for their controversial subject matter, you’d think videos flagged and dragged by every internet user under the sun would fall victim to the unrelenting grasp of the dislike button. Included in this category would be the #Elsagate videos that Forbes called “poison disguised as children’s entertainment”, every video uploaded by the malicious prankster Sam Pepper, and Rick Astley’s music video for “Never Gonna Give You Up” (just to be cautious).

But alas, many of the videos on YouTube that should be labeled “B” for “Bacterial” seem to slip through the cracks when it comes to dislikes. With one billion hours of videos watched daily, it’s unsurprising that some of the most disliked uploads on our favorite video-sharing website are also some of the most popular because of the aforementioned power of internet trolls. Ranging from music videos for absolute bops to an episode of a Russian animated TV series, here are the 15 most disliked videos on YouTube. We thank them for their service.

10. GANGNAM STYLE(강남스타일) M/V (officialpsy)

Upload date: July 15, 2012
Dislikes: 2 million

2012 was a simpler time. “Gangnam Style” is probably one of the most notable pop culture crazes of the decade, but people who hate dancing and fun music videos stepped in to knock K-Pop star Psy off his pedestal. This sacred relic of YouTube was the site’s first video to hit one billion views and captivated a worldwide audience, turning it into an unavoidable phenomenon. However, it took the limelight away from Carly Rae Jepsen’s smash hit “Call Me Maybe,” so it got what it deserved by being on this list.

9. So Sorry (Logan Paul Vlogs)

Upload date: Jan. 2, 2018
