Aerosmith Bandmates Fear Steven Tyler Is 'Struggling Very Badly'

As 2012 gets underway, Chart Beat remembers songs that rose to No. 12 highpoints on Billboard surveys and, despite falling two spots shy of the top 10, remain notable.

Previously this month, we've recalled No. 12-peaking hits on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Country Songs and various rock rankings.

This week, Chart Beat shines the spotlight on beloved songs that seem bigger than their No. 12 peaks throughout the Billboard Hot 100's 53-year history.

In fact, there are so many cherished No. 12 Hot 100 hits that a look at 12 doesn't seem enough. So, here is a timeline of 24 No. 12-peaking songs, by acts from the Beatles to the Script; Joe Walsh to JoJo; Patsy Cline to Lady Gaga.
