101 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

102 Pillowtalk - Zayn

For a song that tries to be sexy, it couldn't be further. I've listened to enough Nine Inch Nails and Stabbing Westward to know what sexy sounds like, and this isn't it. First off Zayn, you're a former member of a talentless group of British pretty boys whose fan base consists entirely of brain-dead menstrual teenage girls. Trying to sound sexy is beyond you. Second, even if you were to ignore your history, this song is so generic it's not even funny. Maybe if you were to come out and say that this whole solo career is just a joke, and that you're trying to make fun of the abundance of other pop stars who have done the same thing as you, I would have tons of respect for you. But as it stands, you're a sellout, leaving a sellout band to make sellout songs under a sellout image. - AngryByrd

For a song about sex and the pillowtalk afterwards, this song is so gloriously over the top and ridiculous. The lyrics equate it to a warzone, and the chorus is so explosively cheesy, I just can't take it seriously. And yet, I love this song. Probably fits in "So bad it's good" territory. - Zach808

I don't know if anyone else would be able to pull this off. ZAYN has an incredibly massive voice with a lot of energy and power behind it, which lets him pull off the fact that he's comparing pillowtalk to a warzone. The beat is absolutely incredible, what with the jumpy barking synths, and the explosion on the chorus, it's so genuine that even ZAYN knows that he can't take this seriously. 5/5 - WonkeyDude98

I don't like this song. That's because of Zayn's voice. I mean, it's good the first 5 times you hear it. After that, it sounds bad and boring and generic. - lovefrombadlands

103 Fade - Kanye West

This song could have been a bit better if the man's vocals "your love is fade / I feel it" were said once in the beginning of the song, immediately followed by Kanye's vocals. The beginning part could have been better. I like this song, though. This song is good. - madoog

Post Malone made something that didn't make me contemplate why I like music? Wow. 5/5 - WonkeyDude98

Glad to see this becoming something. One of my favorites off of Pablo. 5/5 - ProPanda

This song is actually really good. The rhythm is pretty chill. - Mcgillacuddy

104 Winter's Gate - Insomnium

Very atmospheric, epic and underrated.

Brilliant

105 Since You've Gone to Heaven - Brandy Clark
106 Sandcastles - Beyonce
107 Black Beatles - Rae Sremmurd

The song would have been better if Mike Will Made It had not put his name twice in the song to let people know who produced it. It is annoying. I already knew who produced this song. - madoog

And in my opinion Mike WiLL Made It sucks. If you hate him why not call him Mike WiLL Ruined It - AlphaQ

Ahh I'm being cursed because I'm liking this song these days. It's better than Rae's other dumb songs. - AlphaQ

I love this song it's good as I recommend it to anyone.

Rae Sremmurd's only good song excluding the ones that he is featured in - kok2

108 Good Grief - Bastille

This is one of the blandest songs I've ever heard. The marimba, the compressed snapping overwhelming it, Dan Smith's melodrama completely missing the mark of hiding grief of someone's death, the awkward repetition on the chorus, it's one of the best off that atrocious sophomore album, though that's not saying much. Kind of a shame when you consider what they did before. 1/5, entirely because of the somewhat upbeat nature of it. - WonkeyDude98

This song and the rest of the album are pure genius. My favorites on the album are Lethargy, The Anchor, and Good Grief.

109 Together Stronger (C'mon Wales) - Manic Street Preachers
110 6 Inch - Beyonce

I'm guessing she's not talking about a Subway - Hater

Is this about a Subway sandwich? - AlphaQ

Now I want a 6 inch tuna sub! - lovefrombadlands

Ok, I feel like she copied Halsey's album cover for Badlands - lovefrombadlands
