The 7 Most Overplayed Clubs Songs of 2012

1. “Le7els,” by Avicii.

Photos of signs banning DJs from playing it have gone full-on meme—why do you continue to torture us???

2. “Somebody That I Used to Know” (any remix), by Gotye featuring Kimbra.

Every radio station, every hour, every club, every DJ set. Twice.

3. “Sexy and I Know It,” by LMFAO.

Making awkward and fairly nauseating banana hammocks totally acceptable and embraceable.

4. “Gangnam Style,” by Psy.

So catchy we’re beginning to twitch. Perhaps it’s time to notify the Centers for Disease Control?

5. “In My Mind,” by Feenixpawl.

The new mark of success is when hamsters dance in a commercial to your track.

6. “Calling” by Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso.

Mer, mer, mer. Mer-mer, mer, mer, mer, mermermermermermermermermermerMERmermer.

7. Anything by Rihanna.

Yeah, it’s a repeat from last year’s list because remixes of her songs are still on repeat.

The Must-See Club of the Year: The Act

Even if you go once, only to decide that the bawdy performances, risqué art and theater-style confines are not for you, The Act is one of those venues you absolutely must see. Without question, the twisted fun house of hallways, the cramped maze of Escher-esque stairs (leading to more hallways) and the pseudo-avant-guard theatrics will leave you either scratching your head or singing its praises. In both cases, The Act is one nightclub you’ll be telling everyone about.
