Like it or not, DJ Earworm‘s “United State Of Pop” mashup has become an annual, viral-optimized tradition. Since 2007, he’s been weaving together the 25 biggest hits of the year into a controlled-chaos audio montage, but this year he doubles the work with 2015’s “50 Shades Of Pop” iteration.

The five-minute, 50-song workout kicks off with hints of “Post To Be” and “Where Are U Now,” then there’s an onslaught of overlapping samples before things really get going with The Weeknd‘s “Can’t Feel My Face” serving as the primary beat. Snippets from Maroon 5, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, Drake, Bruno Mars, Major LazerTaylor Swift and many more eventually make their way in. And of course he made sure to leave room for Adele‘s late 2015 entry.

Good luck identifying all the songs without hitting pause. Check it out below, via Billboard.
