As we come to the end of another year, Already Heard has decided to reflect on the past 12 months with our “Best of 2017” playlist. Consisting of nearly 200 songs, the AH team has picked out a wealth of stand out songs and personal favourites.

In addition, we wanted to pay our respects to the influential names from the music world we have lost in 2017; Chester Bennington, Chris Cornell, AC/DC’s Malcolm Young, Tom Petty and Lil Peep.

Check out the playlist below and let us know what we’ve (somehow) missed on Facebook and Twitter.

From everyone here at Already Heard, we wish you a Happy Holidays and we’ll see you in 2018.

Thank you for your support,

The Already Heard team.
