22 Camouflage - Selena Gomez

I love every songs of her album #Revival. This one's too. It's a slow rhythmic catchy song.

Lover her album. She is incredible.

Surprised to see this in the top 60. Surprised but happy. - ProPanda

It sounds beautiful. - madoog

23 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

24 I'm a Ruin - Marina and the Diamonds
25 She Used to Be Mine - Sara Bareilles
26 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 - lovefrombadlands

27 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!

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

28 Give You What You Like - Avril Lavigne
29 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

One of the best songs I've heard

30 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. - lovefrombadlands

31 Locked 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

Yes this should be number 2

So underrated!

32 Empire 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.

One word: a masterpiece!

33 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

My God, Reapers is insane and totally awesome.

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 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) - lovefrombadlands

37 Ashes of Eden - Breaking Benjamin

Again, breaking Benjamin is awesome.

38 Sugar - Maroon 5

Ever since they sold out, Maroon 5 has just gotten worse and worse. They've also gotten blander and blander. Animals was one of the worst songs from 2014. It was nothing but a serial killer's fantasy. Those that think the whole "hunting you down" thing is romantic are the same people that like Twilight.

I used to like Maroon 5. Songs About Jane is a fantastic album, and I like al lot of the songs on Overexposed, but most of this album was pretty crap, especially this song. They used to be able to write something more meaningful than sexual metaphors, but apparently they can't anymore.

Love this song. Maroon 5 should be more popular than Taylor Swift

Sugar...yes please...ok no one is saying good stuff about this song, maybe I should stop singing it - lovefrombadlands

39 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?

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.

This is probably Fetty Wap's best song. It is catchy and has flavor. The lyrics --- I be in the kitchen cooking pies for my baby --- wow. This song really delivers. It is a great song. I'm calling this quality music. - madoog

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

40 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
