All League of Legends Worlds Songs (2014-2023)

LoL Worlds Songs List (Artists, Views, and Other Facts)

In celebration of the release of GODs, we’ve listed all the League of Legends Worlds songs, starting with 2014.

It’s crazy to think that it’s been nearly a decade since it all started with the Warriors anthem featuring Imagine Dragons.

Since then, Riot has collaborated with artists spanning between genres like K-pop, rock, hip-hop, and electronic.

For each song, we’ve listed their amount of views, likes, and links to the artists.

Click below to jump to a year:

2023 – GODS ft. NewJeans (뉴진스)

After just debuting in 2022, K-pop group NewJeans had an incredible rise in just a year.

Rather than having the pro players face off in a city environment like the previous two years, they have returned to Runeterra.

Although a World song hasn’t broken 100M views since 2019, this year has a good shot due to the popularity of NewJeans.

2022 – STAR WALKIN’ ft. Lil Nas X

2022 marked the first year that the featuring artist was from more hip-hop background, with Lil Nas X.

Its visuals featured pro players piloting mech versions of their corresponding signature champs.

This matched an overall mech/kaiju aesthetic that Riot embraced that year, with skin lines and TFT Set 8’s Monster Attack theme.

2021 – Burn It All Down (ft. PVRIS)

2021 was the year of Arcane’s release, so it’s only fair that the Worlds theme features PVRIS, who collaborated on the Arcane song, “Snakes”.

The visuals featured LoL pros facing off in Pokemon battle-like 1v1s leading to a climax where they donned the armors of champs like Jhin and Kai’Sa.

2020 – Take Over (ft. Jeremy McKinnon (A Day To Remember), MAX, Henry)

After several years of heavily featuring League of Legends characters in action, Riot had a shift where they featured the likeness of the pro players much more.

In the video, the pros have the weapons of the signature champions that they’re well known for.

This shift’s trend has continued all the way through 2023.

2019 – Phoenix (ft. Cailin Russo and Chrissy Costanza)

After two years with a more realistic-looking animation style, 2019’s Phoenix brought back a touch of colored stylization.

It also marked the return of Chrissy Constanza who collaborated with Riot for Legends Never Die.

Although the song was well-liked, it doesn’t have the same sort of hype energy as the top Worlds songs.

2018 – RISE (ft. The Glitch Mob, Mako, and The Word Alive)

At 351M views, Rise is the 2nd most popular Worlds anthem. Similar to Warriors and Legends Never Die, it’s a hype anthem with awesome lore-based cinematics to match it.

Mako, one of the collaborators on the song, would later work with Riot on Arcane for the song “Misfit Toys”, which also features Pusha T.

2017 – Legends Never Die (ft. Against The Current)

Along with Warriors, Legends Never Die is one of the catchiest Worlds songs in terms of singing along with its chorus.

Rather than the colorful, comic-book-like approach that Ignite took, Riot opted for a more realistic approach to animation.

At 253M views, it’s the 3rd most popular out of all the Worlds songs. Chrissy Constanza, the vocalist of Against the Current, would be featured once again in 2019.

2016 – Ignite (ft. Zedd)

Outside of being one of the most popular electronic artists of the past decade, Zedd is also a massive gamer.

In addition to his recent involvement for VALORANT including his own skin line, Zedd’s first collaboration with Riot was the 2016 Worlds anthem, Ignite.

After a year of having a song without an accompanying music video in 2015, Riot delivered by returning with a colorful display for Ignite.

2015 – Worlds Collide (ft. Nicki Taylor)

World’s Collide, the 2nd Worlds song features Nicki Taylor, who also sang on the song, “Here Comes Vi” from earlier in 2015.

Unfortunately, Riot didn’t include a music video cinematic alongside it, so this song often goes underlooked.

There was a small teaser with visuals but not enough to showcase the full song.

2014 – Warriors (ft. Imagine Dragons)

Last but not least is Warriors, the Worlds song that started it all.

Featuring Imagine Dragons, who had only released one album at the time, this was a massive hit for the fanbase and even gained respect outside of the gaming scene.

With an amazing cinematic to match it, there’s no surprise that this is the most popular Worlds song of all time.
