2017 seemed like an endless rollercoaster. And Google, the barometer of the American zeitgeist, was there soaking it all in.

The tech company recently released its annual list of top searches for the year, which included everything from natural disasters and the slew of political movements to hit TV shows and iPhone releases. As always, the results were very telling, and provided a solid summary of the figures, products, and ideas that defined the past 11 months.

Let’s break down the top U.S. searches by category, beginning with music. The list of top 2017 album releases was led by Taylor Swift’s Reputation (duh), followed by Jay Z’s 4:44, Kendrick Lamar’s Damn, Logic’s Everybody, and Drake’s More Life

The No. 1 searched music act was Linkin Park, which isn’t surprising considering the recent death of the group’s frontman, Chester Bennington. Cardi B came in at No. 2 on the top-searched music acts; Lil Pump took the No. 3 slot; and Joyner Lucas and Jason Aldean rounded out the top five, respectively.
