Deacon released a brilliant album this year with America, but his most shining moment of 2012 was this utterly mind-melting attack of the year's biggest pop hit. Have you ever needed to explain to someone what peaking on mushrooms feels like? Well, just strap on some headphones and watch the nervous twitch in their eye appear if they're able to make it all the way through this track. You'll either consider this repulsively annoying, or the most brilliant production of the past decade.
