  1. Now it's time to update and add the Chainsmoker's Closer, Adele's Hello, Bieber's Sorry, Ariana's Side to Side and definitely Rihanna's Work to the list.. These would CLEARLY make the top 5.

  2. what happened to alright-Kendrick lamar, that video is a masterpiece and defines the struggles and social problems of the 2010's while also maintaining its rap roots, wtf how did it not make this list, it's easily one of the best music videos ever made

  3. how do yall fuckin miss not afraid that shit was played for years to come and still even now 6 years later we play to remind how inspirational eminem actually is

  4. "If you're not smiling by the end of this video then you must be having really bad day" I'm not smiling because the song is cancerous

  5. Looking back these aren't the songs i want my generation to be known for, i wish there were more songs like uptown funk and happy, instead we're probably gonna be more well known for girls swinging on frickin wrecking balls and guys singing about foreplay

  6. Sorry guys. WatchMojo must have made an error when they put Kanye on there. Autocorrect or something. What they meant to have put is Born This Way by Lady Gaga.

  7. If this list were made in 2017, I'd imagine it like this.
    1. Blackstar – David Bowie
    2. Do I Wanna Know? – Arctic Monkeys
    3. Runaway – Kanye West ft. Pusha T
    4. Rolling In the Deep – Adele
    5. Somebody That I Used to Know – Gotye ft. Kimbra
    6. Dark Horse – Katy Perry ft. Juicy J
    7. Telephone – Lady Gaga ft. Beyoncé
    8. Uptown Funk – Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars
    9. Happy – Pharrell Williams
    10. Chandelier – Sia
    HM.
    Bang Bang – Green Day
    Heathens – They Who Shall Not Be Named
    We Found Love – Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris
    Shake It Off – Taylor Swift
    Bangarang – Skrillex

  8. Anaconda ? Really?? why don't you just put Pornography on the list already, how come a video showing nothing but butts ist "decade defining".

  9. My personal list
    1. Telephone – Lady Gaga ft. Beyonce
    2. Love The Way You Lie – Eminem ft. Rihanna
    3. Gangnam Style – Psy
    4. Somebody That I Used To Know – Gotye ft. Kimbra
    5. Run The World – Beyonce
