This year proved a great one for new releases, but it also brought excellent reissues that revisited some of our old favorites. From ‘70s classics to albums celebrating their first decade, our picks for the 10 Best Reissues of 2013 span genres -- everything from New Wave and punk to lo-fi Americana -- and generations, but they all prove to be just as good the second time around.
Best of 2013
These 10 clips are a reminder of why it's good to stay up late.
We can't stop, won't stop making lists.
Full of twerking, Twitter trashing and tragedy, 2013 has been a busy year in the world of music.
Festival season has come and gone, which means it's the perfect time to reflect on the biggest and best of 2013.

Don't call it a comeback -- call it ten of them!
Music may have gone digital, but with the rise in vinyl sales and popularity of Spotify and Soundcloud, album art is just as relevant now as it's ever been.
Our picks for the 10 Musical MVPs of 2013 know full well what it takes to succeed in today's climate, and in addition to capturing the world's attention, they managed to retain their dignity and produce meaningful art. Kudos.
It either makes complete and total or absolutely zero sense to compile a Best Albums of 2013 list. These days, few people bother to even download music, let alone buy physical product, and the 10 records we've selected can all be streamed in full, free of charge, via services like Spotify and YouTube.
Our list of the 10 Best Songs of 2013 could have been all neo-Aaliyah chillwave R&B and noisy grunge redux, as plenty of artists partial to those strains of '90s nostalgia made great records this year. Heck, Arctic Monkeys combined the two and swung back with one of their finest LPs. But those sounds don't tell the whole story.
