WHAT THE FUCK! thanx for ruining a classic you shit house autotune band,this is officially your worst single ever now.
*
Agreed, this is the worst thing I've ever heard from the Peas,
I hope this doesnt occupy the chart for longer than a week.
***
I usually love Black Eyed Peas songs, but this was a real letdown.
***
TRASH! This is the worst thing they've ever done, worse than Boom Boom Pow or Rock That Body. There is absolutely NOTHING good or redeemable about this stinking pile of vomited on garbage. Will battle Like A G6 to be the worst song of this year!

Edit: Wowsers, I used to have a harsh review! This is not even close to G6 in terms of horribility! And it's MUCH better than Boom Boom Pow, Rock That Body and Imma Be. The chorus is not bad at all, even though it sounds like a cheap trashy dance remix, it doesn't sound like a bad one. And the pre-chorus is kind of fun. The verses are still shit though. But I particularly like the extremely dancey chorus near the end, it's quite cool. I'll never like this song, but I don't exactly hate it either.

Edit: It's fun now. 3 stars.

I think samples work better when they're not so blatant. Either picking something somewhat obscure or just not picking the most obvious hook. This sample of "(I've Had) The Time Of My Life" is just far too blatant to see this as a worthwhile addition to the concept.

That Patrick Swayze passed away just a year before this meant that the song was certainly exposed quite a bit prior to this, so when I found out what this was, it kind of bothered me. It's basically a huge clusterf**k of 'please hate me'. Even despite the Black Eyed Peas momentum at the time, I was shocked to see this go to #1 just as I had overestimated the buying public.

That being said, it's not all that bad really. "(I've Had) The Time Of My Life" isn't exactly an untouchable tune, so I'm not exactly offended at the idea of it, it's just not handled particularly well for the most part. The final chorus at least I think is decent, but there's still not much to justify this. 2.3

The BEP are just seeing what they can get away with now.

It's definatelty not their best. Sounds like a mosquito on drugs.

I'm in the minority here by saying that I don't hate it, but it is by far their best effort. They are getting very lazy.

Quite horrible, but the one part I do like is where Will I Am is singing the chorus closer to the end and the words repeat. That is what gives this a 2.
*
atrocious drivel, how DARE they use The Time Of My Life for such utter rubbish, shame BEP shame
**
My star rating may change but I doubt it. This has to be a joke on BEP's behalf, to see what crap they can release and still have a hit with. My biggest issue with the song is that it feels like 2 songs playing at the same time. There is no good linkage between the verses and the chorus. It's like the producers recorded two separate songs and then spliced them together with no care that it feels like the song stops and starts. It's almost like listening to someone playing around with the car radio. Not a pleasant listenign experience. I fear they sampled Time Of My Life just so it has recognition factor and has a melody that will convince people they like the song. The original parts (the verses) are terrible.

Is this legit? Because if it is meant to be serious, then it should be up for "Worst Song Ever". I wonder if they even tried when they went into the studio.
*
More monotonous horse faeces from without doubt one of the most overrated groups of all time.

Truly one of the most awful things ever unleashed upon the charts. The fact that this got to #1 in New Zealand and Australia makes me very very sad. Absolute piece of garbage.

Absolutely disgusting at first.. but it has caught on.. so 2 stars :P

EDIT: WTF!!! A number 1 song... get f**ken lost! australia has the crappest taste in music!!!!!!

1 star now :@

Crap at its best! I really don't understand why established musicians cover classics like this, or even sample it. I would be ashamed if I were the one who murdered song that many generations were raised on
*
May be a grower... but I doubt it. They have done far better.
*
vreselijk slecht
**
agree... this is big piece of shit...
*
slechtste nummer ooit... geloof er niks van dat deze zo hoog staat !!!
***
I don't understand how some of their songs have such low ratings but are still top ten hits even #1 in every country. The problem with this song is the sample, it simply doesn't work and disrupts the flow of the track. The UK grime like chorus part is ok and if that was the whole song without the Dirty Dancing sample the track would have been better imo. Their fifth UK#1. UK#1 and Ireland#2.

No. Just no. The various sections don't work together. The rhyming is poor, at best. And the sample is completely uninspired. This is just a giant mess of a fail.
****
its growing on me...which is disturbing....
i've definitely heard worse though lol
***
There was the initial shock that they had sampled 'The Time Of My Life'. But I suspected it could be a grower, and it has been a grower for me. Not bad, but not amongst their best hits.
****
i like it
*
definitely the worst song of 2010.
**
Hugely disappointing.

Don't mind some parts but they have a lot talent and could have done better.

The beat is pretty good.
**
There is definately worse stuff on the charts than this but in saying that it's nothing really amazing! I'm not gonna remember this track in 10 years time and think of it as a classic #1, rather another forgetable moment on the charts.
****
This has been a real grower for me, I still believe that the sum of the parts is better than the whole. Sometimes I enjoy the The Time parts better, others I prefer the dance parts.
**

One of those songs that you hear in a club or when you're drinking, and it sounds good enough to dance to. Then again, when you really sit down and listen to this auto-tuned piece of nonsense, you realize actually how bad it is.

2.5 stars, and only because I've sang it in public, so it'd be wrong for me to give it the 1 star it deserves.
*
Disgusting remake of an already annoying song. The low point of The Black Eyed Peas career (other than Imma Be).

Not the worst thing ever but is hardly quality.

I didn't like it much at first but then grew to love it but now I'm back to my original opinion. It's really distorted and doesn't work well. I hate the dirty bit parts the most. The verses are bad as well but thankfully not as bad as they've been in other songs by them or other similar songs by other artists. It's not their worst but certainly not worthy of being their 8th #1 and having a lot of chart success like it did. It just shocks me how poor some of their recent music is in comparison considering their earlier work which was quite good.

Not as terrible as others would suggest, but it's nothing I would listen to on my own accord.

I know what I'm about to say is sacrilege but I actually prefer this to the original version. The original is so unlistenable to me that this looks tolerable in comparison. Still an average track though.

I hate it when modern 'artists' butcher classics.
I can't separate this and Imma Be as the worst BEP song.
