Best Songs of 2016


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Atlas, Rise! - Metallica Atlas, Rise! - Metallica

This is, in my opinion, the best song of Mettalica,s new album and then better than all the bull that came around 2016

82 Middle - DJ Snake Middle - DJ Snake V 6 Comments
83 Cake by the Ocean - Dnce Cake by the Ocean - Dnce

With this song being a catchy pop song with Joe Jonas on vocals and me being the outspoken metalhead that I am, you'd assume I'd hate this song and would have only bad things to say about it. I figured that would be the case, but the honest truth is, I actually like this song. It's catchy, it has a nice beat, and the chorus is not that bad. My only two problems with this song are that A: It's got the dumbest title known to man and B: the lyrics are less than pleasing, but honestly, it's not that bad. It's certainly better than that terrible song Nick Jonas put out last year. - AngryByrd

I'll give it a measly 6/10. It has nothing to do with cake! - Catacorn

1) This is from 2015 and solidly from there too, unlike other songs like Me Myself and I and Never Forget You.
2) This is tripe. - SwellowDude98

I love this song

84 Good Grief - Bastille Good Grief - Bastille

This is one of the blandest songs I've ever heard. The marimba, the compressed snapping overwhelming it, Dan Smith's melodrama completely missing the mark of hiding grief of someone's death, the awkward repetition on the chorus, it's one of the best off that atrocious sophomore album, though that's not saying much. Kind of a shame when you consider what they did before. 1/5, entirely because of the somewhat upbeat nature of it. - WonkeyDude98

This song and the rest of the album are pure genius. My favorites on the album are Lethargy, The Anchor, and Good Grief.

How did this garbage get so high? - WonkeyDude98

The rest of LEMONADE was pretty fantastic, it was just this one song that screwed everything up. - WonkeyDude98

I liked this song, why is it so low? - alimarashian

Formation probably took Hold Up's crown. Formation has a great message in her MV. - ArigatoKawaii

It is a great song, and it has such a strong message!

96 Bullet to the Brain - Megadeth V 1 Comment
97 Poisonous Shadows - Megadeth

Words cannot describe this breakup song. Instead of just your typical "no-regrets" breakup, the narrator sees the regrets in he breakup.

98 My House - Flo Rida My House - Flo Rida

This song shrunk on me a bit after I found out that it was a ripoff of Kalin and Myles' Trampoline, but I still enjoy this for what it is, much more so than GDFR. The low-key piano melody is instantly memorable, the chugging percussion gives it a lot of energy, and the fuzzy guitar snarl on the post-chorus sounds amazing. The chorus is one of the greatest choruses of all time, honestly. Is it good? Not really. Do I enjoy it? Oh yeah. 3.5/5 - WonkeyDude98

An upbeat fun time in a tsunami of awful, boring, depressing, and mind-numbingly slow pop music.

Why is this so low? It's really good for Flo Rida! I don't hate him, he's just not very good.

This song is the perfect party song! - Moorefamval
