The fifth annual Pitchfork Readers Poll features your picks for the best (and worst) in the world of music. As always, there are some similarities with our own year-end lists (both share eight albums within their Top 10) and some key differences (Readers Poll faves that didn’t make our Top Albums list include the xx, Alt-J, Passion Pit, and Jack White).

Below, you’ll find all of the 2012 Readers Poll results, including your choices for Top Albums and Top Tracks, along with Most Underrated and Overrated Albums, Best Videos and Best Album Covers (beware– #1 is NSFW), Best New Artists, Most Disappointing Albums, Best Musician Twitters, and Best Live Acts.
