Best Songs of 2015

The Top Ten

1 Hello - Adele

Am I the only person who thinks Adele is overrated? I mean, this song is kind of regular. I feel like you people are just saying it's meaningful 'cause it's Adele, but if you listen to the lyrics, it's just like any other breakup song. I will admit she has a good voice (which is what makes the song different), but the song itself is not that great.

I agree with the person that said " Am I the only person who thinks Adele is overrated? " I agree. Listen to the lyrics. When I listen to songs when I was say... 7 I only listened to the tune to see if I loved it or hated it. Now that I'm 10 and I now what Logic is, I listen to the lyrics. IT ISN'T VERY GOOD. It just get's stuck in my head. Now I hate modern songs so you are either going to think " Oh he doesn't like modern songs that's why he doesn't like this" or " Oh he doesn't like modern songs get into the 21st century all ready" Well I don't like modern songs because the old times brought us people like Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson. Now we have people like Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj who aren't very good. It's your same break-up song by Adele. It's like how Taylor Swift is the queen of break-up

The ten year old! Your a big boy! I think you literally said exactly what most people say on the site. Also Nicki Minaj has a few good songs. Listen to the night is still young - Hater

This song gives me the goosebumps every time she sings "Hello from the other side". One of the best songs of 2015. Welcome back Adele

I do like this song, but it’s way too basic and overrated to be Number 1 on this list.

Even so, I can’t help but notice all of the metalheads who have taken over this list with hateful comments against pop music. You don’t have to like it, but to act like Adele has no talent and is unable to make good music because she’s not growling and isn’t the lead singer of a metal band is kinda ridiculous to me. - DCfnaf

2 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa

This song is so awesome yet so sad cause it remind me of Paul Walker! :(((( RIP

Wow, See You Again at #1? This year was DEFINITELY the worst year for music, in that case. See You Again was really only above average, even of it was superior to the awful We Dem Boyz and Black And Yellow. I actually think this year had 2 artists (and one of the two only made one hit this year) that made songs that could actually be considered the best, then the rest was the "least-bad". Yeah, two good songs from the year.


This is one of the top 3 best songs of the year but regardless I still give it a strong 3/5 to a weak 4/5. - WonkeyDude98

I honestly disagree. When you say 2015 is a horrible year for music, you only talk about the overhyped ones, which are really bad. Listen to songs like EDEN - Wake Up, which is a 2015 song and its amazing - DubstepLover

This song is the song that holds my best memory in my life so far, I went on a field trip with my teacher and classmates, all grade 7 students were supposed to go on a 3 day overnight trip at the Ganaraska forest centre, the night before I was packing up and went to sleep excited and in the morning my dad's phone rang, my dad's phone was a alarm for us to wake up, surprisingly I didn't know he changed is alarm sound, he changed it to See you again. I wasn't really a fan of the song but I knew it was very popular at my school so when I woke up I could hear that song playing and I was like "what the? " Throughout the field trip I had that song stuck on my mind and on the night hike I was really scared because you had to use your night vision and instincts to guide yourself of follow the guide, I played the song see you again in my mind and it calmed down my fear. The day I had to leave I the song see you again suddenly appeared on my mind and at night I finally slept in my bed again and ...more

It's one of the best songs I've ever heard. love the beat. It's so cool and this song actually helps me calm down and cheer me up if I'm down or stressed.

3 U - Kendrick Lamar

To Pimp A Butterfly doesn't get enough recognition. This song is haunting, chilling and makes you think for a while after. But at the same time, you want to hear more and listen to it again. Instead of listening to the song, listen to the whole album. It is unlike any other rap/hip-hop I have ever heard. Truly genius.

One of the darkest, most haunting, and deepest songs of the genius album that is To Pimp A Butterfly. There is so much interesting uses of instrumentation, such as a woman speaking in Spanish, the sound of beer bottles tapping against each other and one of the weirdest headphone movements I've heard all year.
Damn great song.

Also, 7 U's were used during this review (oh wait, 9)

U is a masterpiece. In the second verse Kendrick is crying and rapping at the same time. It is incredible and you can really feel his sadness and his feelings. This is one of the greatest rap songs of the generation.

I like rap

4 Elastic Heart - Sia

Sia is such a talented artist and so underrated. This song is so great.

She's one of the few artists of today who actually know what music is.

Edit: wow, I never knew this reply would get so many thumbs up xD - TheAlbinoWolf

Such a powerful performance by Sia about battling self-emotions. What this does so well is to convey this emotion in not only the song, but the video itself. Shia LaBeouf and Maddie Ziegler (both in the video) act as conflicting state of minds, and the cage act as a barrier that they can't get out of (in this instance, it's the human skull).

Sia's strong vocal performance enhances this meaning, and does what other modern pop songs need to do.

8/10 - Great - Sxerks

That's so true. I know I might seem like a ranter, but I love Sia with all my heart. I loved the video, it really touched me so much! - TheAlbinoWolf

Such a powerful song, and even though the music video is considered weird or creepy by some, it has so much power and emotion behind it. Sia is one of the most talented artists of this generation, and this song just proves that ten-fold!

I just voted this by accident lol - allamassal

5 Uma Thurman - Fall Out Boy

This is their best song on American Beauty/American Psycho. Very good song.

Gotta say I'm more of a classic rock fan. The Eagles Queen Boston Van Halen Aerosmith and I truly think that today's music stinks especially hello by Adele that song seriously stinks but then you find a halfway decent song like this or Coldplay or one republic and I truly don't really like any songs on this list but if I had to chose the best uma Thurman takes the crown

There was no reason to bring up that you prefer classic rock. Stop fishing for attention. - Jackamalio

This song is obviously one of the best songs of the year--it should definitely be on this list. The lyrics have a fun vibe to them, and the "Beach Boys"-like guitar solo at the beginning of every chorus makes this song so unbelievably catchy. As far as I'm concerned, Uma Thurman deserves every last shred of good recognition it is receiving. I love this song

It deserves more than this. Better than see u again and hello which are at top2. please guys vote it so we can finally see something nice at the top

6 I Really Like You - Carly Rae Jepsen

I like this song because it's cheesy and catchy. Yes, I like Carly Rae Jepsen. Because I like cheesiness. - RiverClanRocks

What I mean to say is that people can't admit that songs they like are often not that good! And that what makes people upset! - GrimmShady

I do love the album this is from, which is strange because I never listen to pop music. But I'd vote Run Away with me as the best song off the album and one of the best of he year. This song is great but run away with me is pop perfection.

It is good really high notes

For tom hanks

7 Downtown - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

I will admit that the lyrics of this song are really dumb (I mean, it's about mopeds). However, unlike other dumb songs released lately (looking at you Rae Sremmurd), this one actually has great instrumentals and a rapper that has the energy and personality to just sell it.

Of course its about mopeds! Its supposed to be FUNNY! How can someone say the lyrics are dumb--that is the point of the whole thing

This song is fun. To people who say acts like future or drake are fun, listen up. Their songs are dull, lifeless, and have horrible lyrics. This on the other hand, is a whole lot of fun. I laugh every time I hear it. I love Macklemore and I always will. This is the 4th best song I've heard by him. (Best being Same Love.) Macklesmore, keep doing what you're doing.

Ok, this song is definitely one of the worst songs I ever heard. The lyrics don't make any sense! - RainbowArtist191

8 Here - Alessia Cara

I think that Alessia Cara deserves to be in the top ten because she works really hard for her music to become what it is, which is outstanding lyrics and very unique choices of words. She is one of the couple of singers that make their words come from within, and not just from words smashed together to be hits. It is very rare to have talent like that. She is one of the best singers of 2015, and forever more.

I'm voting for this because it deserves to be higher. I don't understand why people like Hello so much, this is way more relatable and beautiful. She has a powerful voice that people apparently only see in Adele. And I finally get a song that's not just about your boyfriend, which I really don't care about. No offense or anything, but I'm not interested in any relationships except for my friends' and the ones in my books.

It definitely reminds me of all the parties I sat out of as a kid. Hanging out by the chip bowl and angling to change the sports to Danny Phantom, while avoiding the crowd. Trying to find a quiet corner to read. At least now I know I wasn't the only person to feel this way.

She is amazing and so relatable! Her voice is really unique and her message is really rare these days, which I love! She is so cool and beautiful! I really think this should be put way higher, and also her other songs are amazing as well, like scars to your beautiful! She is overall just an awesome person with insane talent, she's gonna go so far and I can't wait to watch her shine!

Can I sit with her too?

9 Can't Feel My Face - The Weeknd

Yes, because it's about a cocaine addiction, it must be garbage, right? No, this song is fantastic, and it's not talking about the cocaine addiction in just positive wording, oh no. It's talking about it in a negative way as well, after he's deep into the addiction of it. Also, this song has been compared to Michael Jackson's songs, mostly based on the sound. Think about that.

Oh so because the lyrics are about cocaine addiction this song is automatically crap? That's a pathetic way to think. Listen closely to the lyrics, he's not talking positively about it. This song has amazing Michael Jackson vibes, I love it.

Oh my Jesus Christ this hate is getting annoying. You people have no feels for this guy. And Beauty Behind the Madness is a fantastic project. - Mcgillacuddy

Maybe the best song of the whole century. Who knows? - ZeroBlaster

10 Stressed Out - Twenty One Pilots

"Oh wish we can turn back time to the good old days when my mama sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out! " - Danguy10

Oh, yes, this song right here speaks to me. I reminisce a lot. And I really miss the nineties. I wish I could go back to the good ole' days. I would have never relaxed my hair. And I would have gotten a degree in creative writing and started my writing career as a teen. Also this song made me go listen to other TOP songs.

I hate modern music and to be honest, really didn't like this song. There is only one reason I voted for it, it explores themes such as corrupt government, and some of my favorite artists of old (Roger Waters) have explored the same themes. - Doom

This is a pretty cool song of 2015.

The Newcomers

? Salvatore - Lana Del Rey

The Contenders

11 Gold - Imagine Dragons

Where does the gold go? , wow this is the most amazing song, it has the same booming effects on my heart as that radioactive, but I now feel its even better than radioactive.

Of what I've seen on this list, this song is definitely the best. It has a lot of power behind everything in it, with the booming effects and strong vocals. The drums and guitar are excellent, too.

That being said, I wish there was more quality music out there. Most pop music is garbage, yet everyone seems perfectly content listening to it. If we could get more bands and artists at the level of Imagine Dragons or better, then the music industry would be in a much better place.

Gritty, honest and powerful. You feel the beat in your bones, the instrumentals are fantastic and the vocals are sure to stay in your mind for the rest of the day. You'll definitely appreciate this song even more if you're into Greek mythology... A great song by a great band!

I love this song. The beginning and beats are kind of weird, but also brilliant at the same time and work so well together. I don't understand how a Carly Rae Jepsen song is HIGHER than this. This is pure GOLD. sorry

12 Fourth 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

Masterpiece. See Sxerks' post - ProPanda

I don't know

Yeah, you know that review of Stem by DJ Shadow I did? Well, that review is utterly worthless now, because there's literally nothing that can compare to the beauty of Fourth of July.

Fourth of July is essentially Stevens breaking down and crying as his mother is dying in her hospital bed. She's resigned herself to her fate, and while she knows that she must pass on, she knows that her death is causing her son mental and emotional anguish. She knows that she must die, and she's telling Stevens that he should realize that. I mean, it's emotional enough that Stevens is suffering the death of his mother right in front of him, it's certainly heartbreaking to hear her resign to her fate with the devastating lines "We're all going to die"; but what gets me is Steven's soft, whispery vocals. They're gut-wrenchingly sad and melancholic, and they're just... unimaginably tear-jerking.

The production for that song is incredibly sparse, with the ambiance clashing with the soft guitar ...more - SwagFlicks

13 Ex's & Oh's - Elle King

I personally wouldn't like this as much if it were by a man. Not because I don't like men, but her being a woman was more risk taking. We all know the common thing in rap about side-hoes and using women for their bodies, and Elle King completely changed this idea in both the lyrics and the music video. It definitely could've been insulting if it weren't for the fact that women are treated exactly that way by men in many other situations.

Gonna have to disagree with the other comment, this song is actually good. It's songs like Watch Me that aren't good.

It's one of the worst song of the year. It's horrible and I was dying when I listened to it.

It's good, and I can't believe this idiot said it's terrible - RainbowArtist191

14 The Blacker the Berry - Kendrick Lamar

Any of the songs from Kendrick's latest album could be on this list, but this one has to be my favorite. Everything from the lyrics to the production has raised the bar when it comes to rap.

It's absolutely astounding how amazing this song is in every way, and yet it isn't even one of my two favorites from the album. Seriously, listen to To Pimp A Butterfly, it's that good. - WonkeyDude98

Pretty much everyone on this website is a pleb and under 18. This song is better than every song below and maybe above and is a masterpiece

Highly underrated song. Just give it a listen and you will see why this song deserves top 10 at least

15 Defeated - Breaking Benjamin

This is definitely number 1. It has great lyrics and composition. I'm glad to Breaking Benjamin is back. - 05yusuf09

I'm gonna vote for this one because it's the only respectable song on this list. Pop sucks. - bkweigel

Definitely one of the best songs ever with amazing music and meaningful lyrics... Not like the ones where songwriters run out of lyrics and sing oh oh baby baby for chorus

Hate it

16 What Kind of Man - Florence + the Machine

This song is so powerful, so beautiful, so amazing. It truly is one of the year's best.

This is her best song yet. Its amazing and I am glad that it actually made it here. - HamedM1

This is their best song yet. The only better song so far in 2015 is Reapers by Muse. - Songsta41

Another underrated and incredible musician! This song manages to be fun and powerful without being clichéd, like all of Florence's songs. Absolutely awesome!

17 Wildest Dreams - Taylor Swift

It can be really emotional if you sit and listen to the lyrics. Sometimes I do that and people are like "come on! Isn't this your favorite song? " And then I'm like "Yeah, I'm just listening to the lyrics and letting emotions wash over me like an ocean wave." Because sometimes you can sing the song and be like " I love this song! " But sitting and actually appreciating it can really make a song get a vibe in you. It's really touching and can wash over you if you close your eyes and make your own music video in your head. What the lyrics are saying is that, "I know we may not see each other again, but just remember me. I love you too, but this can't happen, as much as I'd like it too as well." It makes you just tear up in your heart and suddenly all weight is dropped off of your shoulders. You go, Taylor.

Go listen to Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd and then tell me if this is still emotional because chances are that you will forget this song even existed - TheThomasThomas

I didn't love this album as much as everyone else did. It's definitely not my favorite. (My favorites will always be Speak Now and Fearless.) But she had 3 songs on it that I absolutely loved. Style, Out Of The Woods, and Wildest Dreams. While the weakest of the 3, it's still an amazing song. Keep going Taylor Swift. If you can make more songs like this, you'll always have a fan in me.

Why is this In the top 10? It was overplayed to the point where it was irritating to hear Taylor Swift whining every time you heard it. Taylor Swift had much better songs released in 2015 than this one. - fronterrific

One of the only 2 songs that's above tolerable from 1989. 2/5 - StarlightSpanks

18 No Way Out - Bullet for My Valentine

Underrated, this song is just the true anthem of 2015

My favorite after Tears don't Fall

This song deserves to be first one! Always better than all pop or rap songs. Better than Adele, Taylor Swift, Rihanna or any pop singers. This is METAL! - Nimbusman

Best song

19 Bills - 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!

Sorry guys, but this is not the "worst songs of 2015" list... - ZeroBlaster

20 Tear 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.

Of all the songs from blurryface, I'm glad this one is all the way up here. It really is a good song, even if that one line (you know which one) is cringe to it's max. 4/5 - ProPanda

21 Love Me Like You Do - Ellie Goulding

They go a little too overboard with the auto-tune in this one.

No.

I get it that the age of music that I like is over, but there's got to be something more creative than this song. Uptown Funk, Four Five Seconds, for Pete's sake, Sugar has more lyrical and musical creativity than this, and I don't even come close to liking Maroon 5. Now would be a great time for a triple facepalm.

Pop music was slowly dying of a disgustingly common disease called autotune they started to find a cure (royal blood, bring me the horizon etc) and as soon as it was about to be cured this song put a bullet in its brain and killed it

This song's great

22 Angels 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...

I LOVE THIS SONG! Breaking Benjamin is one of my favorite bands and this band is in 2nd place...Fall Out Boy is 1st

23 Alright - Kendrick Lamar

This song is pure freedom... You don't see any drake songs being chanted at protests. Long live King Kendrick!

This is the best rap song of 2015! Anyone who disagrees doesn't know what real hip hop is. - DynamiteG

The best song from the best singer of the decade.

EDIT: Oops this is 2nd best. Best is King Kunta. 3rd would be In the Night. - AlphaQ

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

Half of the songs on this list didn't even come out in 2015 though

25 Emperor's New Clothes - Panic! at the Disco

This song has me hyped up for the new album coming out in 2016.

Finally they have a good rock song and not bubble gum pop, I love P! ATD and fallout boy and imagine dragons and all those awesome bands.

Panic! is amazing, however, I like Victorious more than Emperor's New Clothes

The song that got me into Panic. I just love it and I love this mixture of genres that suits the band so well. - Noctalli

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

27 Reapers - 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

Don McLean was wrong, music died the year after 2015

28 Let It Happen - Tame Impala
29 Lean On - Major Lazer

I love this song it is so fun and I love the cover " peace is the mission" you should take that to heart.

It should be among the first five. It's a really an awesome song. It's very popular in my school. Popular than many of those listed in top 10.

I don't consider this a masterpiece. I do not like the way this song sounds --- the instrumental and vocals. I could tell that DJ Snake contributed to this track because the sounds stemmed from Turn Down From What are noticeable. DJ Snake's sounds in Lean On are a sharp form of the sounds in Turn Down For What. Microsoft likes this song. Microsoft used this song in their advertisement. - madoog

Pop single of the decade right here.


It really doesn't get better than this. - ProPanda

30 Death or Glory - Iron Maiden

Such a talented and legendary band at 36?!?! It's so disappointing that metal is hardly appreciated. Most of the top ten in this list are fake pop songs...

How can anyone dislike metal in favor of these crappy songs in the top 10? World is doomed! - MetalGurja

Welcome back to your rightful place, iron maiden. That is the top of the charts.

I like how EVERY single one of these comments has to disrespect pop music, when the top 20 is actually mostly rock and underground rap. Boes to show how toxic vocally parading metalheads. - WonkeyDude98

32 Fairly Local - Twenty One Pilots

TOP is better than all your pop-puke music that makes Americans more stupid every day. You're all philistines, and deserve to lose your independence.

Every 21 Pilots song is amazing! This and Stressed Out were a little overplayed. Still the band is amazing! #Fingerling

Who can hate this? Bombastic, meaningful, packed with personality, surprisingly catchy yet somber...this is perfect. - WonkeyDude98

Yes! Hey, did anyone realize the lyrics say it will never be on the radio? Well it was! I love TOP so much ♥ 11/10

33 Take 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 don't like this song, it's slow and I don't like his voice. (You have to make a slow song extremely amazing for even a 1/10 from me)

34 Focus - Ariana Grande

This song sucks. She needs to shove a donut up her butthole (which is where the Scooby Doo part was performed) and shut up. I love her but I kind of think she's selling out...

YES it sounds like Problem. YES the chorus wasn't the best choice for this song. YES Ariana has made some mistakes within the past couple years, but this song actually isn't that bad when you come to think about it. I bet half of you guys only hate it because of the whole donut incident. If she never made those few mistakes this year, then I'm pretty sure not as many people would hate this song.

Besides... there are MUCH worse songs out there. I would be appalled if someone said this song is worse than "Dooo It" by Miley Cyrus.

This is above 100 by Travis Parker! I am ashamed. This song is puke inducing to be honest. - SelfDestruct

I don't like this song much - RainbowArtist191

35 Cool for the Summer - Demi Lovato

I instantly liked it when I first heard it on television. This song is great. The vocals are amazing. I like that she pulls off a stressed syllable. - madoog

Why are all the Demi Lovato songs at 40th/ 100th and 107th place and she can actually sing but Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift are much higher and Taylor is a decent singer but Selena is not very good

This song is about sex. - BeaM456

Easily the best song of the year

36 I'm a Ruin - Marina and the Diamonds
37 Ghost Town - Adam Lambert

Ooh! This song is so good! I love it I can listen to this all day it should at least be in the top 10 in my opinion. :-)

This is certainly one of the best song of the year! I'm a huge fan and I'm so proud of him!

In few weeks this song wil be no1 - glambert

Should be in top 20

38 Four Walls - While She Sleeps

What is dis

39 The 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.

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

As godawful as the lyrics are, it's still a fun song to listen to with a dark atmosphere. 4/5 - StarlightSpanks

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.

Paul has nothing to prove to anybody in the entire world, except his grandchildren. This brings him into their world. Outside of that, the whole lot of them should not be allowed within 100 feet of Sir Paul.

This is an abomination. paul is a legend, how did he end up with these 2? How sad. - gemcloben

Well, I love Rihanna, I respect McCartney as a legend. But I hate Kanye. Well, after this music, I started to think that Kanye can sing.

This is a good song. I like how Paul McCartney plays the guitar. It's beautiful.

Good song and all, but didn't it become a hit in 2014?

It released in 2014, but it didn't become a hit and its album didn't get released until 2015. - WonkeyDude98

This song is life

Best song ever, but it didn't come out in 2015

Real quality. 5/5 - StarlightSpanks

44 King Kunta - Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar is a legendary rapper only two albums and an Ep in and this song not only is his most popular but his best work to date in my opinion. The percussion is present and one again Lamar's flow is incredibly good.

To the person who said this is only two albums in you need to go listen to the excellent album section 80, too many people seem to forget about it.

This really, REALLY should have charted when it first hit the hot 100 back on April 4, 2015. The groove is inhuman, the guitar melody that comes in about a minute into the song is insanely catchy and gives off this dark yet carefree vibe, the percussion is bouncy, the bassline is killer, and the guitar solo at the end...hoo boy. The production is actually perfect. - WonkeyDude98

45 I Am Machine - Three Days Grace

One of my favorite songs from Three Days Grace. Should be number 1

This song is much better than all of those pop songs...

I love this song so much! It represents me as a machine...and I love this band! Definitely my third favorite "first Fall Out Boy second Breaking Benjamin"

I heard this a LONG tme ago but a few weeks ago when it randomly came on in the car, I flipped out and I love it so much. - AnonymousChick

46 Stitches - Shawn Mendes

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!

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

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

This is the BEST, you must be deaf, daft, or on drugs if you think that Shawn can't sing (he doesn't even use autotune). Shawn you are forever my idol!

47 Ashes of Eden - Breaking Benjamin

Again, breaking Benjamin is awesome.

Should be number 1

I always liked BB - ProPanda

48 Afterglow - Chvrches

Truly an underrated song, should be higher FOR SURE. Lauren's voice in this is absolutely wonderful and the lack of lots instruments in the song makes it all the more powerful.

49 Trap Queen - Fetty Wap

WHAT? REALLY? This song is complete garbage. I despise Fetty Wap, I truly do, he is a talentless hack who is fake as hell. What really surprises me is that he wasn't a one hit wonder, he had 4 hits this year WHAT THE HELL!?!?! Why the hell is this guy getting so much praise, he can't rap, his flow is horrible and his voice is god awful. He's just like any other crappy modern rapper so why is he getting praise? Also I forgot to mention his songs sound exactly the same, Infact, he is the most same sounding "musician" I have ever heard. He reuses the same beats and even the same lyrics. But what pisses my off the most is that he has only been around for 1 year and he got 3 hits in the top 11 in billboard hot 100. This was last achieved by The Beatles. THE ' Beatles! It disgusts me that somebody so talentless in every single way, who has only been around for a year has achieved something The Beatles achieved. Is this really how bad rap has become?

For those who hate it, I doubt I'll be able to change your minds, but I just want to say that this song is great.

Believe me, I've been jumping around on this song since it came out. At first, I thought it was decent. Then it shrunk on me and I thought it was mediocre. Then it shrunk on me again and I thought it was utter garbage. Then it got back up the scale, to mediocre, back to decent, and now I find it great.

While his voice is a slightly less irritating version of Young Thug's, unlike Young Thug, Fetty knows how to use his voice to his advantage. His flow in the second verse is actually really great. What I like about this song the most though, is the vibe. It's just so happy and carefree, and Fetty Wap genuinely loves the girl that she's with. The beat is also pretty great too. 4.5/5 - WonkeyDude98

I am not voting for this song because it sounds great, or because it is not repetitive, or because it is a good song. I am voting for it because it was a hit in days, and launched Fetty Wap into becoming one of 2015's most influential artists in the Pop and Hip Hop genres. This was his beginning, and although many people now hate this song, it was only because of the constant repetition of the song, as well as the constant playing of it on every pop radio station in America. I know many people despise and will despise this song for the rest of their lives, but you have never thought of the number "1738" the same since.

Best song of 2015 4 lief. Better than Hello or overrated emo Stinkin Fart. - AlphaQ

50 Heavydirtysoul - Twenty One Pilots

Tyler actually writes about a feeling in his life, unlike some of the songs on the list

Starts out as rap then turns into great sounding voice

609? It should be number one! - RalphBob

GANGSTERS don't CRY THEREFORE THEREFORE I'M I'M MR MISTY EYE THEREFORE I'M I'M CAN YOU SAVE? CAN YOU SAVE MY? CAN YOU SAVE MY HEAVY DIRTY SOUL? This song is amazing. The lyrics are amazing. The only way I could describe an 11/10 song so amazing is using lyrics that are amazing.
