It's almost hard to believe that 15 years have gone by—it practically happened in the blink of an eye! For some of you reading this, that's probably only a mere 2/3 of your current lifetime. (Me, included.) Every year, NYLON rounds up the best songs that came out and blew our minds. We managed to cap it at 20 picks for 2015, but that was nothing compared to what went down for this list. This time, we decided to select the 100 best songs released in the past 15 years. We submitted, we voted, and we ranked. Click through and play them all out, below.
