With Labor Day marking the unofficial end of summer, we bring you the season's hottest tracks from 2014's hottest months.

This time last year, two tunes sat deadlocked in the battle to achieve the coveted "song of the summer" title: "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke, T.I. and Pharrell and "Get Lucky" by Daft Punk, Nile Rogers and Pharrell. Though both utilized undeniably catchy hooks and leg-shaking rhythms, "Get Lucky" emerged the clear winner, especially given Thicke's unfortunately misogynistic way with words.

From longtime fans to students who were just looking for something fun to do on a Thursday night, West Coast rapper Dom Kennedy did not disappoint.
