Best Songs of 2017


The Contenders: Page 3

41 It Ain't Me - Kygo & Selena Gomez

The drop reminds me of SeeB in all the right ways. Selena sounds great in her boringness as a vocalists, and the lyrics are basically Love Yourself done right. 5/5 - ProPanda

This is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. The first and last drops, while messy, hook me in for some reason. This is also one of Selena's better vocal performances and I like the narrative of Selena not wiling to be her selfish boyfriend's servant. 8/10. - NiktheWiz

Pretty good song, and this is coming from someone that doesn't like Selena that much. - Eraser

Overplayed. - Lucretia

42 World War Now - Kreator

Awesome song from Kreator - Lucretia

43 Feed the Machine - Nickelback

I'll give it to them. They were never horrible, nor were they great, but I'll say their music is still better to listen to than most modern artists. This one is their best in 5 years. 9/10 - naFrovivuS

I actually really like this one; I'm looking forward to see what else Nickelback have to offer this year. 8/10. - NiktheWiz

Bleh. I actually kinda like the instrumental, but Chad Kroeger is the more boring but less contemptible Dave Mustaine. The band is improving from their disgusting mediocrity I guess. 1/5 - WonkeyDude98

Wow, who would have thought this?

Really. Feed The Machine is an absolute killer song, great riff and drumwork and above all awesome (read; well thought) lyrics. Wich is very relevant right now.

Nickelback: Good Job!

44 One More Light - Linkin Park

Beautiful lyrics. Pay attention please

I love this song so much. The music and beat is amazing and the lyrics are meaningful 9/10 - lovefrombadlands

Lyrics are really nice but this really annoys me. Rip Chester and Chris though. - ProPanda

And this was supposed to be written by a "metal" band? - Lucretia

45 ...Ready For It? - Taylor Swift

I think Taylor Swift is over hated and I usually try to defend her music. Here I can't. -1/5 - DCfnaf

It literally sounds like Taylor combined four Skrillex songs together. Really awkward instrumental, terrible drop, and the vocals suck. But at least it's better than Look What You Made Me Do. 2.5/10 - Maxo

This song is awful. Taylor is now a sellout pop singer. - railfan99

I love this song!

46 Liability - Lorde

While it's not the best song from Melodrama, I voted for this so to get it past Joke Paul - crowdiegal

Honestly, my least favorite Lorde song to date. Still dope though. - ProPanda

Too many feels

Eyy, this is better than Green Light. Anyone with contradicting views? - PhenomentalOne

47 Cold Winter Sun - Demon Hunter

I love this song! - LarkwingFlight

48 Gods of Violence - Kreator

This is one of my favorite songs of the year, and one of my favorite songs in general. The guitar riff in the chorus is one of the best guitar riffs of the decade. - AnimeDrawer

My favorite 2017 metal song so far but by the end of the year, I'm very sure everyone here will shove this to first. - Neonco31

Well it is better than the trashy pop songs above it... - Lucretia

Uh this sucks and no offense but pop is definitely better than this. - AlphaQ

Get this above that godawful Harry Styles song at least.

That Harry Styles song isn't a song. It's just horrible...noise for 5 MINUTES. 10/10 for you having a good taste in music. - lovefrombadlands

49 The Fall of Jake Paul - Logan Paul

Jake Paul's bad music should fall - lovefrombadlands

its good

Ugh... Logan Paul and Jake Paul and Logang / Jake Paulers are idiotic - Lucretia

50 The Underside of Power - Algiers
51 Impact Proxy - Mechina
52 The Second Brightest Star - Big Big Train

I remember my brother was playing this one day, and I was so confused to what it was at first, but now I think we need to bring more light to songs like this. - isaaonrtdmtr

How do we get more people on this site to find out about this? 6/5 - DCfnaf

53 Everything - Brian McKnight
54 Star - Brockhampton
55 Perfect Duet - Ed Sheeran

This is nice. 8/10. - lovefrombadlands

56 There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back - Shawn Mendes

The bridge to this song is provably the best thing I heard in the last 3 months. Great lyrics and tune by somebody who made a song a few years ago about beating himself up. 5/5 - TristGamer

Shawn Mendes' best song to date! A huge step up from Stitches, Treat You Better and especially (ESPECIALLY) Mercy. - Maxo

This song has become almost a staple on hit radio in Australia and I have to say I can't complain, it's one of Shawn Mendes better songs. - crowdiegal

Played way to much, but at least not as a annoying as stitches or anything - AddictedToSilentScream

57 Pure Comedy - Father John Misty
58 Attention - Charlie Puth

This song just wants attention, when it's not even good - lovefrombadlands

NO. 1/5 - DCfnaf

59 Mama - Jonas Blue

Glad to see this song here. "Mama" by Jonas Blues feat. William Singe is a song that hits all the right places about partying but still being home so mum doesn't stress. I think the sentiment of the song is great plus the instrumentation and multi tracking used are brilliant. Love it! - crowdiegal

60 Destructive Currents - Immolation

Really good - Lucretia
