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. You'll notice that all of these songs are from albums that came out in 2011. That essentially eliminates any selections from Dan Ryckert, who stubbornly believes rock 'n roll (and therefore all creative music) died in 1978. But as this Spotify playlist shows, he's dead wrong.
