21 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...

A crazy beautiful song

22 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.

Amazing, how's it so low? - kardinaleb

23 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.

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'.

24 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

25 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

Not one of Demi's best songs... - slimshady901

26 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 theme song to add to my life.

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

Best song

28 Let It Happen - Tame Impala
29 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!

30 Centuries - Fall Out Boy

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

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

Technically, it did come out in 2015. At least, the album it was on came out in 2015, and Centuries charted only in 2015. However, since it was already eligible for (and already made) my best of 2014 list, I'm not bothering to do it again. - WonkeyDude98

I love Fall Out Boy they are my favorite band! While this isn't my favorite song by them...i still love it!

31 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

I love this song!

32 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.

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! "

31?! People have no taste in music these days. This song is 100 times better than any of the songs listed above!

34 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

35 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

Its 2017 and this song is still my jam!

36 On GP - Death Grips
37 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.

How is any song in 2015 above an iron maiden song

38 Eventually - Tame Impala

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

39 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

I like this piece. It is catchy. - madoog

40 Four Five Seconds - Rihanna

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 SUCH A GOOD SONG! and so catchy! Love it so much
