Kiwi pop star Lorde made a stunning comeback in 2017 with 'Melodrama', thanks to stellar pop songs like 'Green Light' and 'Perfect Places'. She scored 12.3% of the overall vote, beating The National's 'Sleep Well Beast' and Kendrick Lamar's 'DAMN.' into joint second place, both scoring 8.5% of the vote. Rounding off an eclectic top 5 were Foo Fighters' 'Concrete & Gold' (6.9%) and The xx's 'I See You' (6.2%).

He may have been pipped to the post in the album stakes, but Kendrick Lamar was the clear winner of the 'Song of the Year' with the fierce 'Humble', scoring 12.7% of the overall vote. He trumped Ed Sheeran's 'Shape of You', which came in second place with 11.1%, proving that NO, ED, YOU DON'T GET TO HAVE EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME. Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee may have broken records with 'Despacito', but they came third in our poll with 10.3% of the vote, while Arcade Fire's 'Everything Now' and Lorde's 'Green Light' finished joint fourth with 8.7% each.

Whether your ears are acclimatised to Chris Martin's often-irritating ramblings or not, there's no question that his band knows how to put on a damned fine show. That's why they came out on top of our Gig of the Year poll with a whopping 21.5% of the total vote - and anyone who was at Croke Park in July for their colourful, excellent live show won't begrudge them, either. In second place was Guns N' Roses at Slane with 15.8%, while U2's Croke Park gig came in third at 10.5%. In fourth and fifth place were Radiohead at the 3Arena (5.1%) and Arcade Fire's Malahide Castle gig (4.2%). A special mention must go to Eddie Vedder's 3Arena gig, which wasn't on the shortlist but which many of our readers hailed as one of the year's best.
