NG WORST SONG COMPETITION 2020

After a five-year hiatus, the Worst Song Competition is back!


We often have contests to make the best song possible and we often lose track of having fun. Well, this contest is for just how bad you can make a song!


There'll be three categories, and one overall Winrar, and those categories are:


CRINGE: Like your stereotypical first ever piece of audio made. The kind of song that hurts one's ears.


HUMOUR: A piece that you'd otherwise take seriously, but with fart noises for example. The kind of song that is so bad that it hurts one's SIDES.


PARODY: A piece that lampshades bad things in audio that are being done to this day, like overcompression, overuse of tropes, cheesy sound, overuse of sound effects...


HOW IT WORKS:


  1. ο»ΏYou have two weeks from today, i.e. until 29 October 2020 at 23:59 PST, to come up with the worst possible thing you could ever make.
  2. Every entrant can put in a maximum of two pieces.
  3. At the end of the contest period, voting will be done on the NG Audio Pub Discord server, where we'll have a listening party on the 30th. Prepare for maximum earbleed!
  4. As submissions cannot be put on the NG Audio Portal normally, you need to upload them to the project system and set them visible to Anyone, like so:

Once you've put them in the project system, post the link to your project in this thread.


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:


Q: Can I write a song?

A: Maybe?

Q: How do i winrar?

A: Start by perhaps rubbing Tankman's shiny, shiny behind and see what noises come out of itβ€”

X: Or maybe take all the pharmaceuticals at once? (Thanks, @LD-W)

Y: Or have some work termination and hard derp? (Thanks, @etherealwinds)

Z: That way u winrar for shure.


Once this is done, feel free to post it anywhere... or hide your head in shame that you tried this maybe? 😳


You all have two weeks. Hop to it, and let the ear-bleeding commence!

Don’t worry I’m pretty competitive

Not sure if posted correctly, feel free to take down the response otherwise.

I had this in my files for a while, but didn't see fit to uploading it.


This is the perfect place for it

... Low effort is good for the worst right?

The ending is the most brilliant climax you can imagine.


Let me see... I should have something else terrible floating around that I haven't uploaded

A Zyn synthesized Death Whistle? Hmmm not long enough.

A Zyn synthesized HL1 scientist screaming? Still not long enough.

A Zyn synthesized Roblox Oof? Same problem.


Hm... I know I've got something around here somewhere.

Alright, I've only got this on the side, the other thing I had in mind, which was an oof choir chord progression, is on my external drive, which I'm too lazy to fetch. It's also not long enough, but it's more melodical than prior submission ideas.

https://www.newgrounds.com/projects/audio/1534638/preview

I figure it's altered enough to not be an issue, let me know if it isn't


I was going to submit ShitPost, but I already uploaded it unfortunately

I have never made music or looked into making music. I will now illegally download FL Studio and win this.

Counting the first one as an entry, not so much the second as it's evident what it's meant to be.

@TroisNyx

Are royalty free vocal samples ok for the contest?

I used some from music radar website for the last contest years ago.

Since everybody started to put their submissions outside unpublished projects: disclaimer - I did not make Yeyeyel, but if you want a great inspiration, I recommending visiting JAVG's YouTube channel, he has great content

I hope you find his music to be an inspiration to crack FLS, Massive and to create fart sounds using triple osc to win this contest. Good luck everybody πŸ’ž

But if I make the worst song, then it would be the best. But if it's the best how can it be the worst? What about the worst worst song?

The submissions that will be accepted are unpublished projects on NG ONLY.

As for cracking FL, I would strongly advise against that. If you want to go free, use Tracktion 7, Reaper, or Ableton Live Lite 10 (which is going free till end December).

Is teaming up allowed? Like, I can do vocals for someone, if they do a sick (see also: vomit) beat.
