If you’re a purveyor of strong email values such as keeping your inbox at zero, you are probably familiar with this useful app called Unroll.Me that destroys all of your annoying email spam. Unroll.Me also keeps track of that spam, and they recently unveiled the Spammys, an annual list of the most unforgivable email spammers for 2015. 

“As far as the ‘most unsubscribed’ companies, the top three were StumbleUpon (43%), Live Nation (38%), and Goodreads (35%). Twitter was the only company to make both lists, sending an average of 173 emails per user and getting a 35% unsubscribe rate,” Business Insider reported.

Sure, Groupon and LivingSocial are great online services to discover sweet deals—like dinner for two at kitsch-y restaurant for you and your Tinder date—but it turns out both companies have the knack for annoying the bejeezus out of you with their relentless emails once you’ve subscribed to them.

Nonetheless, here are the top five companies that won the 2015 Spammy Awards for sending spam email and breaking the platonic relationships they have with their subscribers.
