Remember when we had the Blue Jays to explain why they loved Drake, Three Doors Down, and nu-country? Or when we tested the limits of the Cancer Bats’ friendship? Or when we asked Rich Aucoin to list every pop-culture reference in his breakout video, “It”? No? Well, you have some catching up to do—but, as ever, we have your back. Here, a curated list of our favourite videos of 2012, including intimate performances by Cadence Weapon and Austra, a guided tour through the youth of The Flatliners, and interviews with Wiz Khalifa, the Gaslight Anthem, Metric, and much, much more, in this compilation of some of our favourite performance, feature, and interview clips from 2012.
