According to the editors of Oxford Dictionaries, 2013 was the year of the ‘selfie’. According to Miley Cyrus, 2013 was the year of the ‘twerk’. But for media companies everywhere, it was the year of the list.

The Internet was flooded with them. Facebook is now pretty much just people sharing lists they liked. Some were entertaining, some were terrible, some probably took 5 minutes to write. And to celebrate the arrival of 2014, SlamXHype has dug through them and written our own list, a list of all the best and worst lists of 2013.
