Green Day, Foals and Muse have all been included in Zane Lowe's list of his 100 Hottest Tracks Of 2012 - but they were beaten to the top spot by Swedish House Mafia member Sebastian Ingrosso.

Lowe asked readers to nominate their favourite songs for the year and then unveiled the top picks on his Radio One show, with Ingrosso's collaboration with Swedish producer Alesso, 'Calling', coming out on top. Speaking about taking first place, Ingrosso said: " I was so shocked when I got the news, like 'Really?!' This is the best Christmas present ever!"

Green Day's track 'Kill The DJ' was in second place, ahead of Foals' taster for their forthcoming new album, the track 'Inhaler', while Swedish House Mafia's track featuring John Martin, 'Don't You Worry Child', was in fourth. Enter Shikari came fifth with 'Arguing With Thermometers' and Skrillex was at seven with 'Breakn' A Sweat', while Muse had two tracks in the top 10 - 'Madness' at number eight and 'Survival' at 10.

Swedish House Mafia released their final album 'Until Now' in October of this year. The dance trio announced back in June that they were planning to split up when their next tour came to an end. They made the announcement via their website, where they thanked fans for their support adding: "We came, we raved, we loved."

The top 10 tracks on Zane Lowe's Hottest Tracks Of 2012 were as follows:

1. Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso - 'Calling'
2. Green Day - 'Kill The DJ'
3. Foals - 'Inhaler'
4. Swedish House Mafia ft. John Martin - 'Don't You Worry Child'
5. Enter Shikari - 'Arguing With Thermometers'
6. MONSTA - 'Holdin' On (Skrillex & Nero Remix)'
7. Skrillex - 'Breakn' A Sweat (Zedd Remix)'
8. Muse - 'Madness'
