Don’t let anybody tell you that the era of the mega hit single is over. Over this past year the entire country danced to “Gangnam Style,” debated exactly why it was crazy to tell someone you just met to “Call Me Maybe” and wondered who exactly Taylor Swift told off in “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” None of these songs received enough votes to wind up in the Rolling Stone Readers’ Poll Top 10. You guys seem to like the rock & roll, and not so much the women. Click through to see the results, and listen to a playlist of your picks below. And don’t blame us if you don’t like them. We just count the votes here.
