41 Mortal Man - Kendrick Lamar

This is one of the best closers I've heard in years. The first part is a brutal, serious rap questioning fan loyalty, whether or not they'll stick by Kendrick if he does something they don't agree with. It's a question that there's no real right answer to. The second part brings the poem that's been running throughout the album together. It details his rise to fame, his guilt about what he had to do to get there, and his desire to help others on that path. All themes of previous songs on the album. This leads into a fictional interview with Tupac Shakur, who details his own struggle, along with the struggles of the black community (poverty, hunger, etc.). I can't explain it in a list comment. Anyways, the song closes with an amazing poem about him and his fans, who might just want to use him because of his fame and influence. However, these fans aren't completely to blame, as they're all part of a broken, restrictive system designed to drain the life out of you. Kendrick proposes ...more - Zach808

42 On GP - Death Grips
43 Eventually - Tame Impala

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

44 Confident - Demi Lovato

A self-empowerment anthem that actually has powerful instrumentals and an actual vocal presence to it? This is everything Fight Song should have been. I don't usually even like Demi Lovato, but this song is great.

I love demi lovato. Her voice rocks it is so powerful. She also went through a lot in her past so she is a great idol to a lot of people. This song is also very powerful and meaningful- love it.

This song is great I love Demi's sound and the emotion in her songs and how she puts out music she loves and that she knows others will like and relate to!

Much better version of Demi Lovato

45 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

This song is life

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

EMO TRASH - CostcoHotDogs

47 Better When I'm Dancin' - Meghan Trainor

Every time I listen to this song is will always dance. It's the soundtrack for peanut's the movie. And I love Meghan train or since the song all about that Bass. My sisters didn't like the song lips are moving

Who are muse, and rita ora, and since when is she and muse are better than Meghan trainor's better when I'm dancing? In poms, we're dancing to this song, it's just amazing!

What a perfect little tune for the Peanuts movie

The most favourite song by Meghan Trainor

48 Cease and Desist - Sevendust
49 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

I only listen to this song when its half past five! Well actually I don't, I just love this song so much I want to fit the lyrics into my review. I just love this song, I can't describe it. I was obsessed with it when I was 10, and I had a good taste in music then. 10/10 ♥ - lovefrombadlands

50 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

51 Dead 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

52 The 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

53 Cut 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

54 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

55 Good 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.

Why is Selena always naked? - AlphaQ

56 Cheerleader - OMI

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

Worst song I've ever heard

It took omi 7 years 2 write this song

This is easily a top three song of 2015. Infectious chorus, amazing beat, tropical feel. Great song

57 Gravity - Papa Roach

58 Invincible - Kelly Clarkson

This song deserves more recognition. This should have been the hit Fight Song was. This is inspirational music done right. For those who want to make girl power songs, please take notes from this song.

Love this song. I love the beat, the vocals, everything. I definitely recommend the song to anybody who has taste!

I totally agree this SHOULD have been the hit Fight Song was- better vocals, better video, better singer!

To be honest, I do not remember this song. It did not get the recognition and air play that Fight Song did. Fight Song was ok, but I feel radio overplayed it and now I never want to hear that song again.

59 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.

Three legends, one song. I should like this more than I do. - ProPanda

60 Magnets - Disclosure

I like this song magnets because it's not much boring song

It's an electro-lover's dream...and Lorde is one of the few artists who actually has talent. Today's mainstream singers have about as much talent as my pug.

It's Lorde who completes it. It wouldn't be the same with any other artists. I mean, her sultry, salty voice and that bouncy electro beat...ah, wonder. 10/10
