We know you’ve been jonesing for a reason to watch the video for “Wrecking Ball” again.

Well, thankfully, MTV’s got you covered. If your coworkers start coming after you for blasting Miley’s hit for the 1,000th time, you can say you’re doing research for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, which take place Sunday.

And we’re here to help you with your studies: In honor of the award show that brought us both twerking and Kanye interruptions, we have lovingly collected every song nominated for a VMA this year in one Spotify playlist. That’s right – all 54 of ’em.

So get to work. Leading the pack this year: Beyoncé, who’s drunk in nominations – you see what we did there? – with eight nods across three videos: “Drunk in Love,” “Partition” and “Pretty Hurts.”

Tied for second is Eminem (with seven nominations for “Berzerk,” “The Monster,” and “Rap God”) and newcomer Iggy Azalea, whose videos for “Fancy” and “Problem” (her collaboration with Ariana Grande) have her near the top of the heap.

Pharrell, meanwhile, is the lone man in the coveted Video of the Year category (for “Happy”). He’s up against Azalea, Beyoncé, Sia (for “Chandelier”) and Cyrus (for “Wrecking Ball”).

You can find the playlist in the Spotify web player here or embedded below.
