It’s been a whirlwind of a year in rock, with tons of new music hitting the airwaves from both classic KROQ artists like Foo Fighters, Green Day, No Doubt, Bush, and Linkin Park to emerging bands like Atlas Genius, Youngblood Hawke, Walk The Moon and Imagine Dragons.

We’ve had the pleasure of hosting many of these bands throughout the year, whether it be an intimate performance in the Red Bull Sound Space, or one of our major shows like Weenie Roast or Almost Acoustic Christmas.

Without further adieu, here are the top 50 songs of 2012.
