Listen To Game Informer's Favorite Songs Of 2016
We're nearing the end of 2016, which means it's time for Game Informer to share its favorite songs of the year via a Spotify playlist!
With 17 editors, plus our wonderful production staff, our tastes tend to run the gamut from *** tonk strumming and distortion-fueled metal to hip-hop and dance pop. Expect many transitions into new genres as you meander through the long playlist.
Not all readers have as varied taste as we do, so here is some guidance for fans of particular music genres. For hip-hop lovers, dive beyond the Chance/Kanye/Kendrick headliners to find gems from Anderson Paak, Danny Brown, and Aesop Rock. If you're looking for a dance party, queue up Sia, Lizzo, and Blood Orange.
Punk/metal fans should make sure to check out PUP, White Lung, Black Tusk, and Kvelertak. Feeling melancholy? We recommend Bon Iver, Kevin Morby, Mitski, and the dearly departed Leonard Cohen. Enjoy!
