After crunching the numbers, we now have the results of our 2010 Triangle Music readers' poll. Breakout British group Mumford & Sons grabbed the top spot with their debut album Sigh No More.
Wilco's big show at the Durham Performing Arts Center in March grabbed the top concert of the year nod, which you may remember, set a record at the venue for the fastest sellout ever, though there was a little controversy over that claim.
And this year, for the first time, we included songs in our readers' poll. Cee Lo Green's brilliantly offensive pop tune "Fuck You" was the top song (it also made each of our writer's lists). You can stream all ten of the top songs below or check out the iTunes mix including all of the songs HERE.
