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.

Thanks to all of the bands who were on the Throwdown the past year and even in 2012! We love doing the show and are very fortunate to have so many great bands to play. That also makes it very difficult when making these lists, as it's like pulling our own teeth to pick and choose which songs make it and which don't. Unfortunately, this isn't youth soccer and we all can't get medals... that doesn't mean we don't love you though. Again, thanks to every band and every listener who has ever taken the time to participate with the show and we hope to see you back in 2014. Also, let us know which local band rocked 2013 for you in the comment section below.
