There was a lot of great rock music that came out in 2012, but the following 10 tracks are the best of the best. See the top 10 rock songs of 2012 here! Although there were a lot of major releases that were pushed to 2013, 2012 was still a powerful year for rock. Here are the top 10 songs of the year according to the active rock charts. However, we have excluded singles that were released prior to 2012.


10

'Lost in Forever'

P.O.D.
 
 

2012 marked the year of the comeback for P.O.D., as they enjoyed their strongest radio presence in years with the first single from 2012's 'Murdered Love.'

 
9

'Unity'

Shinedown
 
 

Shinedown was the only band to make the list twice, although Volbeat, Five Finger Death Punch and Chevelle all would've if we would've counted singles released in 2011.

 
8

'Live to Rise'

Soundgarden
 
 

Soundgarden got impatient waiting for their new album 'King Animal' to drop, so they re-entered the studio and recorded a somewhat non-Soungrden-esque track for 'The Avengers' soundtrack.

 
7

'Burn it Down'

Linkin Park
 
 

They may not be the radio juggernaut they were in, say, 2002, but LP's latest effort 'Living Things' still put up some impressive numbers on the strength of the lead single, 'Burn it Down.'

 
6

'No Resolution'

Seether
 
 

After scoring the #1 rock song of 2011 with 'Country Song,' South African grunge transplants Seether continued their assault on the rock charts in 2012 with the third single from 'Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray.'

 
5

'Coming Down'

Five Finger Death Punch
 
 

5FDP continued their domination of the active rock format in 2012, following up the 2011 hit 'Remember Everything' with another hard-hitting tale of human despair titled 'Coming Down.'

 
4

'Criticize'

Adelitas Way
 
 

Adelitas Way has had a big couple of years thanks to their album 'Home School Valedictorian.' 'Criticize became the band's second #1 hit from the album, sophomore slump be damned!

 
3

'Still Counting'

Volbeat
 
 

Even though they used the unusual strategy of releasing a single from their 2008 album 'Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood,' Vobeat still had one of the most successful rock singles of the year.

 
2

'Hats Off to the Bull'

Chevelle
 
 

Chevelle's second single and title track from their most recent album hits as heavy as the ghost dude that beats the crap out the band in the video.

 
1

'Bully'

Shinedown
 
 

For the lead single from their fourth full length album, 'Amaryllis,' Shinedown capitalized on the feelings of an entire generation with their battle cry against bullying.
