It's been a kick ass year of local rock on the Flint Town Throwdown. It was very tough to narrow the field of 91 songs from 73 bands on all 35 rounds of the show that happened this year, but we did and now we begin counting down the top 13 tunes of the year.

Songs and their place on the list were determined by a number of factors -- amount of votes for the song, biggest response from being played on air, most requested by listeners and, because it's our show, the ones we liked the best.
