The lights are on
Many of the Game Informer staffers share similar passions to our readers outside of video games – whether that be films, television shows, books, comics, tabletop games, or watching clips of creepy people on YouTube. To round out our end of year coverage we decided it would be nice to share our favorite songs of the year with the community. The playlist has a little of everything – catchy hip-hop, thrashing metal riffs, bubbly electro-pop, somber bearded white guys strumming guitars, and anthemic punk songs. Click the links below to check out the Spotify playlists. We hope you enjoy it!

My favorite song of the year is "Blue" by Distorted Harmony.
Not a bad playlist. Bad Girls though? Don't let Dan add songs!
What a peculiar article.
My favorite song this year: "Elegies" by Make Them Suffer
Definitely did not expect half of the tracks on here Kendrick Death Grips Arctic Monkeys P.O.S. Japandroids Nas Dino jr EVEN RIFF RAFF. You guys have great taste in music as well as diversity! Well done Bertz
Nice to see fellow Jersey-natives The Gaslight Anthem on the list. "Handwritten" was one of the best albums of the year.
Sure, my company's theme song wasn't made in 2012, but that's no reason why it isn't included in your list. If any explosive lemons get lobbed into your offices, don't come crying to me!
Backseat Freestyle is my fav Kendrick Lamar track, but good picks overall. Whose the Grimes fan though? Obscure stuff but I like her.
you guys know whats up
