The Contenders: Page 3

41 Lights - Ellie Goulding
42 Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers
43 Deepthroat - Cupcakke

Good song! It slays! Should be in the top 5 - Worksponge

What the actual is this? - Martin_Canine

44 Numb - Linkin Park
45 All the Small Things - Blink-182

47 Sign of the Times - Harry Styles

This song makes me think of Ryan Higa - Ihateschool

48 Million Reasons - Lady Gaga
49 Heavy - Linkin Park & Kiiara

NO. NO. NO. (Keeps writing that for 100 years) NO. NO. NO. - 445956

50 Midnight - Coldplay
51 Counting Stars - Onerepublic
52 Sweatshirt - Jacob Sartorius
53 I've Seen It All - Björk

Björk is generally regarded as one of the greatest non-mainstream artists. Yet, none of her songs were on the list. ISIA was nominated for an Oscar as Best Original Song, so it is most likely the song by her that most people know (this and Army of Me). - Martin_Canine

54 So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold
55 Say My Name - Odesza

odesza - GrapeJuiceK

56 Somebody that I Used to Know - Gotye
57 We are Young - Fun
58 Burn Baby Burn - Ash

Brilliant song brilliant video

Ireland's best band

Superb video


59 Anaconda - Nicki Minaj

Again no this song is completely retarded - Ihategwyn310

WHAT? IS THIS A JOKE - christangrant

60 Work - Rihanna

Being one of the few TopTenners that actually like Rihanna: no. This song didn't receive critical praise and was not a milestone in her career. Also, it's not one of her best. If anything other than her signature song "Umbrella", which is already on the list, should be included on the list, it should be from either "Good Girl Gone Bad" or "Rated R". Those albums were when she was both popular and had favorable reviews. - Martin_Canine

No This is awful - christangrant

Absolutely not. this song is just completely awful. It sounds like she didn't put in much work work work work work, when making this song, if she even makes her own songs - Ihategwyn310
