The 12 Most Epic Music Videos Of 2015

We had some pretty unforgettable music videos this year. Many made for the most perfect memes and GIFs. It took everything out of me to not include Why You Always Lyin’ by Nicholas Fraser, but I had to take this list at least slightly seriously. On the list are three just named Grammy nominated music videos, as well as fan favorites that made us laugh, cry, or were just there for pure entertainment. Check out the list below.

1. A$AP Rocky – “L$D”

All of A$AP Rocky’s music videos are pretty amazing, but this one is by far his best one to date. The way it is filmed and edited makes you feel like you’re tripping on LSD too.

2. Taylor Swift ft. Kendrick Lamar – “Bad Blood”

What’s a list of 2015 music videos without “Bad Blood,” really? Anyone who is anyone was included and no one could stop talking about it for weeks. Taylor also reenacted it practically every night of her 1989 World Tour.

3. Nicki Minaj and Beyonce – “Feeling Myself”

These two were feeling themselves while filming this video at Coachella. It also made us all consider getting a TIDAL subscription because it was the only place you could view it.

4. Adele – “Hello”

If you weren’t slightly emotional after watching this video, I don’t even think you’re a human. Adele also brought back home phones with cords and flip phones because there was no better way to be dramatic than slamming your phone or angrily flipping it shut.

5. Sia – “Elastic Heart”

Honestly, Sia and Maddie Ziegler have the most underrated celebrity friendship. The second to feature Ziegler, along with Shia LaBeouf in an epic cage match portraying different versions of Sia.

6. Rihanna – “Bitch Better Have My Money”

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3eAMGXFw1o&w=640&h=360]
For a song as bad**s as this one, Rihanna had the most fitting video for it, involving her throwing her phone and then shooting it. And of course, RiRi chilling on a dock and listening to Rihanna while everyone’s wasted, because what else is there to do.

7. Demi Lovato – “Cool for the Summer”

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=il9nqWw9W3Y&w=640&h=360]
I’ve said this many times but Demi looks absolutely amazing right now. She was all about showing that off in this ultimate summer party music video where she wants the world to know that she’s living her life and honestly feeling herself like Bey and Nicki.

8. Kendrick Lamar – “Alright”

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-48u_uWMHY&w=640&h=360]
While the videos for the To Pimp A Butterfly album were amazing, this one really showed is easily the best. It has the gritty vibe of an old school rap video and even though it is very explicit and has a lot of violence, it is uplifting with Kendrick remind everyone that it’s going to be okay.

9. Justin Bieber – “What Do You Mean”

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DK_0jXPuIr0&w=640&h=360]
The Biebs grew up a lot in 2015 and completely changed his sound. This video showed just how much he grew up with how sexual it was. Most of us were kind of weirded out by this at first but we’ve all moved past it now.

10. Missy Elliott – “WTF (Where They From)” ft Pharrell Williams

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KO_3Qgib6RQ&w=640&h=360]
Missy is back and it’s so refreshing that she has really never changed her sound. The video is Missy meets No Strings Attached and it’s perfect.

11. Maroon 5 – “Sugar”

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09R8_2nJtjg&w=640&h=360]
The video featured Maroon 5 crashing weddings all over LA and doing surprise performances. While some people have said it was fake, the band still maintains that it was 100% real. Who cares though, it was an incredibly cute music video.

12. Drake – “Hotline Bling”

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxpDa-c-4Mc&w=640&h=360]
Obviously, I had to save the best for last. Drake‘s incredibly awful dad dancing made for the best GIFs and memes of the year. Thanks for this one, Drake.
