262 You Can't Kill Us - Icon for Hire
263 How - Daughter
264 The Community of Hope - PJ Harvey
265 Marigold - Periphery
266 Utafumi (Radio Edit Ver.) - Dir En Grey
267 Gone with the Wind - Architects (UK)
268 Make Me Dead - Sim
269 Back to Me - Marian Hill & Lauren Jauregui

Better than anything Camila has touched. 6/5 - ProPanda

270 That's What I Like - Bruno Mars

The entire album is great. That's What I Like is just as good as 24K Magic. It should go up the list. - LightningBlade

This is a great song! Should be in the top 15! - micahisthebest


271 The Final Thing on My Mind - The Pineapple Thief
272 All the Other Girls - Cavego

Better dance song than most of them lately. At least this makes sense!

Better than top 40 with no overplay. Great summer it will be!

Wow, this summers gonna groove. Tasty song!

273 Cypher 4 - BTS
274 Handclap - Fitz and the Tantrums
275 No Problem - Chance the Rapper Feat. Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz

Best song to date

This is barely above PPAP, are you serious?

Great song - madoog

276 Cleopatra - The Lumineers
277 Feel Invincible - Skillet

This completely blows. If these guys are called Skillet, then why aren't they a flash in the pan? 0/5 - WonkeyDude98

Perhaps num1...but they don't want understand

278 The Great Divide - Rebecca Black

This actually isn't that bad. Sure, the drop sucks, and Rebecca sounds a little nasal, but this is miles better than anything she's released before. It's sad, longing, and actually might make up for Friday. - Spark_Of_Life

Her vocal is totally fine and maybe much better than Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez which are quite popular but have poor low voice. - BeaM456

This song is amazing, thanks Rebecca for improving so much!

Needs to be higher up. It's amazing.

279 Still Breathing - Green Day

Billie's voice never ages I swear, 9/5. Nice lyrics, excellent beat - ProPanda

For me this is the best song of 2016. - zxm

It's beautiful. Stunning 8/5 - AnonymousChick

Honestly...this isn't good. At all. The (over)production and beats are so stiff, generic, and lacking in punch that it makes the blaring instrumentation and Armstrong's grungy vocal tone come off less powerful and more claustrophobic and grating. It's like crawling through a system of air vents with no way out. And the lyrics...this is just Wake Me Up When September Ends again but with less detail and writing that overuses similes so much that it ends up losing the song's focus (you're LIKE a son that was raised without a father? you're LIKE a junkie tying off for the last time? ).

It's not bad (if I'm being generous), but it's easily one of the worst on the album and not one that I really like. 2/5 - WonkeyDude98

280 I Feel It Coming - The Weeknd

Weeknd's collaboration with Daft Punk pays off good. Song is simple but has good musical value. Niall Horan's "This town" comes in close for me; but "I feel it coming" is richer and more melodic.

This song is amazing, and I'm not being hyperbolic. - Satire

I don't even know why, but somehow this, Starboy, and False Alarm all have this too-perfect charm that makes them cut through any critical faculties for me. While this isn't as amazing as either the piccolo and bass-heavy awesomeness of Starboy or the gritty, willowy False Alarm, it's easily the slickest, most fun song The Weeknd has ever made, and when you consider the content...well, that should be no surprise.

Fun fact: this sample is the first time I've listened to this. Thank you Abel, for being abysmal at YouTube. 7/5 - WonkeyDude98
