At Diffuser.fm, we’re all about new music, and we're psyched to unveil our Top 50 Songs of October 2012 list. Our picks are based on the most-played tunes on Diffuser.fm Radio, the online station we launched last month, and this month’s inventory speaks to our broad tastes. We've got everything from neo-old-timey faves the Avett Brothers and Mumford and Sons to Canadian electro-pop duo Purity Ring, with plenty of classic guitar-driven rock 'n' roll -- Green Day, the Vaccines, the Gaslight Anthem, etc. -- in between.

Rather than rank the tracks by popularity or artistic merit, since that would only lead to jealousy and petty squabbles, we’ve presented the Top 50 songs of October 2012 in alphabetical order. Are we missing anyone? Drop us a line and tell us who you’d like to hear on the station.
