The Top Ten

1 Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus

My lyrics: I hate the stupid Wrecking Ball - Neonco31

Song: Miley's voice fits perfectly for this song and sings it greatly. It's a very good song about love.
Video: You know what it is: Licking hammers, her naked on the wrecking ball... Just a horrible concept. - Martinglez

2 Don't Wanna Know - Maroon 5

In hindsight, this is a terrible song with a good video. - WonkeyDude98

This video was awesome! It was a rant at how celebrties get so much overexposure they epnd less time with loved ones, and then the girl was a pokemon who escaped cause of it - ProPanda

Song: Kinda repetitive but catchy and fun to listen to. It's okay.
Video: They are dressed as pokemon and being chased by people on their phones. This was released alfter the pokemon go had completely died down, plus it's totally unrelated to the song. - Martinglez

He should be sorry for making that video - TwilightKitsune
