Hit Songs That the Artists Now Regret

Machine Gun Kelly, “Invincible”

MGK wasn’t quite a fan of his most early work before breaking through to the mainstream – and that includes his 2012 song “Invincible” with Ester Dean, which became the theme song for WWE’s WrestleMania XXVII and used for Thursday Night Football.

“First off, I hated the song when I first did it because it was brought to me by corporate America. So basically Jimmy Iovine was like hey, first off they didn’t even come to me with the song, it was like a contest between the Interscope rappers like Yelawolf, Kendrick Lamar and myself, which I found out. It sucked and I hated it,” he revealed.

Pharrell Williams, “Blurred Lines” with Robin Thicke

Pharrell had a massive hit with Robin Thicke in the form of “Blurred Lines,” which also led to some courtroom drama – which the artists ultimately lost.

There was plenty of discussion about the song’s lyrics at first, which were deemed awkwardly non-consensual.

“[At first] it’s like ‘What’s rapey about that?’ And then I realized that there are men who use that same language when taking advantage of a woman, and it doesn’t matter that that’s not my behavior. Or the way I think about things. It just matters how it affects women…I realized that we live in a chauvinist culture in our country. I hadn’t realized that. Didn’t realize that some of my songs catered to that. So that blew my mind,” Pharrell admitted to GQ years later.
