OK! Sink your teeth into this! We've come totally clean. Listed below are the top 105 songs for 2002 and the top 25 CD's of 2002!!

The top 105 songs of the year are based purely on airplay, we don't sell out to the "hottest new thing," or the social significance of any one singer, set of lyrics or how many times we got blown because we played the song as a request.

The top 25 CD's of the year are based on a very (NOT!) complicated formula combining KNAC.COM airplay and the top CD lists of the year from the KNAC.COM staff and a few selected tastemakers from within the community.

The top 105 songs of 2002 will be played again on Friday January 3rd starting at 10 am pst...we may even do it again, keep checking back! We know that more arguements break out every year over "Best Of" countdowns than its really worth. So just kick back and enjoy the tunes and feel free to ridicule us because your favorite song of the year placed way lower than it should have.

Ready?

Crank em up!!
