21No Way Out - Bullet for My Valentine

Underrated, this song is just the true anthem of 2015

My favorite after Tears don't Fall

This should be number 1 as well as Defeated by Breaking Benjamin. This is real music not autotuned like Uptown Funk.

Tears don't fall has to be one of my favorite Bullet For My Valentine songs. This one is awesome too

22Kill V. Maim - Grimes
23Locked Away - R. City

This song gets me singing every time and will never get old

Oh my goodness, I was listening to this song as I passed it. O.O

I love this song, but I don't think it needs to be number 1. It owes its success to Adam Levine's beautiful voice. I watched them perform this at the Pitbull New Years thing. The song needs Adam Levine or else it isn't great. Love the song, just is not #1 worthy. - TheWiseOne

This song is underrated I mean #23! it can do better

24Fourth of July - Sufjan Stevens

A truly masterful song, embellished beautifully in a ballad, about family relationships. Its soft tune is clashed by the contrasting minor key played throughout the song, invoking a dark tone. Each stanza alternates as a conversation between Sufjan Stevens and his mother, Carrie, as she was dying in hospital.

Easily one of Stevens' most recognisable songs, and one of Stevens' best songs of the album, "Carrie & Lowell".

10/10 - Masterpiece - Sxerks

25Stitches - Shawn Mendes

I don't hate this song as much as others, but...I don't like it. The production is kind of weak, Shawn Mendes' falsetto is waay too thick, and the lyrics are broadly about a painful breakup. What makes it worse is his delivery isn't earnest enough to make up for the fact that a lot of the lyrics are over-the-top.

That said, I think Mendes is a decent singer and the lyrics can be treated as such. I give a strong 2/5. - WonkeyDude98

I listened to this song before it got popular. I showed it to my friends and they thought it was weird and they hated it. Guess whose singing it now? I've always loved this song I love Shawn mendes!

Don't be so hateful self destruct I like this song and 2 others agree with me and none with you take a look and you'll see why

It's also blatantly obvious that he's the only person thumbing down our comments. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

I'm going to get hate for this, but it isn't that bad. It's okay, but other songs should be on this spot and this should be quite lower. - AnonymousChick

26Angels Fall - Breaking Benjamin

Finally! A song that I actually listen to! No offense, but all the previous songs seriously are out of taste... This song, however, is downloaded to my phone right now! Vote it higher!

It's a really good song, and is extremely underrated honestly... I mean, Breaking Benjamin's lyrics are always really good though so this song really deserves to be in the top ten. - Flowersocks2137

How can this be 26... Deserves the 4 spot...

A crazy beautiful song

27Reapers - Muse

I love this song. It is so much better than everything in the top 10.

Easily better than all the other music (dumb music) currently above it

Brings you back to classic muse with a killer riff and easily Bellamy's best solo ever

My God, Reapers is insane and totally awesome.

28Take Me to Church - Hoizer

Take Me To Church is objectively the best song of the year and should replace See You Again for the first place!

Take Me To Church is amazing. Such a song with a good meaning. Should replace Ellie Goulding for 2nd place

"I'll tell you my sins, and you can sharpen your knife! "

I like this song!

29Empire of the Clouds - Iron Maiden

Brilliant song. The mixture of heavy, symphonic & progressive metal is a joy to listen to and its slightly melancholic sound captures the tragedy of R101 airship crash with poignancy and reverence, all of which creates a song which is equally haunting and beautiful. Meanwhile, it works very well because it's the most ambitious Maiden have arguably been in their careers (and inarguably fair more ambitious than most pop musicians half their age), and the new elements (particularly the orchestral one) being welcome additions to their sound. What could have been an extravagant folly turns into something truly classic and not only the best song of the album, but also of 2015 and arguably Maiden's career. If only most music these days was this good. - Mrveteran

What. This is an amazing song that actually is about something and not about a sappy love story or partying. This deserves to be in the top 10 or at least the top 20 songs of 2015. This just goes to show how dumb mainstream music is and how talentless and boring it is now. And it is sad that people listen to the crap that is on the radio these days

The fact that this song is currently at number 40 bothers me. This needs to be at the top 20. I get that people like songs about breakups and love stories or parties but a single good song in the top 20 wouldn't kill.

How is any song in 2015 above an iron maiden song

30Tear in My Heart - Twenty One Pilots

I love this song as much as I like a lot of there other songs. I think this one is good, but Car Radio is my personal favorite.

This is a really good pop-rock song. It is different from other things that twenty one pilots has released, but that is what makes it special and interesting to me. Is it my favorite? No, but I will direct you to some stuff from their Vessel album. However, this song deserves to be in the top 10 (either it or stressed out), just to show how far this band has come this year. My smol beans have made it so far, and this song is proof. I-/

I don't understand why right now this is ranked at only number 12. It's such a unique song and was played almost everywhere. I absolutely love it. The music video gave the song even more meaning and was simply displayed so artistically. His wife was even featured in the music video, which was just brilliant. The song is just overall amazing.

This is one of my favorite 21 pilots song. I love how they express their feelings here. And credits to you who said, 'I'm cursing my government for not picking this for number 1'.

31The Hills - The Weeknd

This is a great song. It manages to create such a dark atmosphere, but still manages to be so enjoyable. Some people might hate its overuse of AutoTune, but I think this is one of the few times AutoTune has been used correctly to make a song very enjoyable. The lyrics are a bit generic, but still not bad. The beat is amazing. The chorus is probably the best part of the song. Everything about this song is enjoyable.

I despise the Weeknd, he is a talentless hack who tried to play the pop game to draw fans in, then immediately play an entirely different and boggling card with this. Definitely the worst song of 2015, and is almost as bad as Wiggle and My Humps (I WENT THAT FAR). - WonkeyDude98

I POLITELY DISAGREE. The lyrics are... weird, but I love his tone and the way he sings his songs, especially this one, although I still prefer in the night. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Easily the best song of 2015. I wasn't a huge fan of the other singles The Weekend put out, but this song is a beast.

The Hills is dark and great. It has those booming sounds. This song is deep. I applaud this song. It is another song of his that I like. 5/5 - madoog

32Eventually - Tame Impala

I'm surprised that this is actually this high (36 right now) on a website this terrible.

33The Nights - Avicii

No doubt this is the best video song of this year. - glambert

Exactly, the video and the song is awesome! Love watching the video - sryanbruen

I love his songs and especially this one gives me power. I live in Japan. And I go to Japanese school. But everyone around me knows his song. These days, I'm trying to be able to sing his song!

Deserving of a place in the top 10,for sure! I once listened to this song 9 times in a row. Personally I'd place it 8th.

Avicii's generic mainstream lyricism is back, but it's up a notch from Wake Me Up. - SwagFlicks

34Dead Inside - Muse

Best song in the album, better album than last album. I hope muse be better next time

Way too low down in the list - not my favourite on the album, but bloody brilliant anyway.

Best song.. was tough to choose between this and psycho though.. the bridge/end is the best piece of muse-ic I've heard in a long while

Not as good as Reapers or The Handler but still great

35Cut the Cord - Shinedown

I saw many votes and comments on this song and don't know why so I listened to the song and I knew why there was many people voting for this song

This song is one of the best should be the first with painkiller and immortalized

I came here to look for good songs so I saw the album artwork and searched for them and that song was dam good

There is some good music in 2015

36Bills - Lunchmoney Lewis

Two or three horn riffs, a bass, an atmospheric effect, two piano riffs, and a vocal sample. This beat is so complex, and it's perfect for LunchMoney Lewis. This song makes the scenario of being under crushing debt sound fun and actually paints the picture in a detailed and hilarious way. WHY DID THIS NOT BECOME A HIT?!?! Screw you America. - WonkeyDude98

While not fantastic, this is a quirky & catchy tune that has a good melody and makes a refreshing change from the rest of the clubby sounding and autotune drenched music on the rest of the charts. - Mrveteran

This song is addicting. I love it!

Just a song about working in order to survive --- I don't feel like hearing it. - madoog

37Good for You - Selena Gomez

Love this song too...This Selena's song makes me relax and more clam

Selena the Queen's back to it again! And if you think the "Old Selena" was better then please catch up. She's 24 years old. She didn't turn into a hoe when she was younger. I support her new mature music better.

I love this song. Only because it is stuck in my head and I heard it on the radio.

Had no idea this was Selena Gomez when I first heard it. This is definitely not your Disney music.

38Astoria - Marianas Trench

I'm in love with Marianas Trench and this whole album is a reflection of the bands amazing talent when it comes to music

Yes some love for marianas trench
Half of the songs on this list didn't even come out in 2015 though

39Cheerleader - OMI

This song is kinda hilarious, but enjoyable. It is not too bad.

It took omi 7 years 2 write this song

This should be straight up number 1 people are crazy if they think this is dumb

I like the actual music but the singing and lyrics... - wowthisisstupid
