Since forming in 2009, Major Lazer has pounded its way to the top of the festival bill with its combination of dancehall, moombahton, trap and electronic. Founded by electronic music impressario Diplo, Major Lazer began as a collaboration with the British house DJ and producer Switch. These days, the group is composed of Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire. In addition to the three albums, including "Peace Is the Missions," released in 2015, and six EPs, Major Lazer has countless remixes, which we'll address later. For now, here's our favorite Major Lazer songs.

5. Major Lazer: "Get Free" (ft. Amber of Dirty Projectors)

A track about being weighed down by the Man, i.e. never got no love from a government man. But really, who has?

4. Major Lazer: "Watch Out For This (Bumaye)" ft. Busy Signal The Flexican & FS Green

From their second album, "Free the Universe," "Watch Out for This (Bumaye)" is everything you want in a Major Lazer track: dancehall bounce with rapid-fire lyrics. It's definitely one that you'll want to turn up, up, up.

3. Major Lazer: "Hold The Line" (ft. Mr. Lexx and Santigold)

When you need to vibrate like a Nokia.

2. Major Lazer: "Jah No Partial" (feat. Flux Pavilion)

If this track doesn't get your booty moving, then you've got no soul. And don't blame Missa Marshall, General or Lieutenant.

1. Major Lazer and DJ Snake: "Lean On" (ft. MØ)

Keeping their tradition of featuring rising female vocalists, Diplo and Co. recruit Danish singer MØ for their biggest hitting banger yet.
