2012 has been another outstanding year for Dazed music covers. We started by hanging out with ASAP Rocky in Harlem, paired Grimes up with Hedi Slimane, hung out with Snoop for the Olympics, got banned in seven countries thanks to Azealia Banks' massive pink condom, and finished by getting messy with RiFF RAFF in his Hollywood apartment. Along the way we've unearthed hundreds of new artists and producers, premiered dozens of killer mixtapes and music videos, and by all accounts had one of the most trill years to date. In celebration of this year''s bombastic brilliance, we've compiled 100 songs that have soundtracked our adventures, starting with Action Bronson and ending with Rick Owens' BFF, Zebra Katz. I've got a feeling that 2013 is going to be even crazier. Until then, we advise you to clear the next 6 1/2 hours because things are about to get wavy...
