From "Stranger Things" to "Suicide Squad", here's the complete list of your most googled stuff of the year.

Google have unveiled all of their most searched terms of 2016 and the results are pretty surprising...

The most searched term of the year was *drum roll* "Powerball", which we guess is the result of people frantically checking their Lottery numbers to see if they have suddenly become millionaires (spoiler- most didn't).

The number 2 search was Prince, the late musician's work suddenly flooding onto the internet in the wake of his death after years of strict video removal from YouTube.

Elsewhere, the most searched for TV show was Netflix's smash hit Stranger Things, with Millie Bobby Brown finishing the year as the 10th most googled actress. Other notable shows include Game Of Thrones at number 6 and American Horror Story at number 8.

Suicide Squad was the most googled movie, closely followed by the equally disappointing Batman Vs Superman at number 2. Hey, at least you were the best at something this year guys...

Beyonce's 'Formation' was the most searched song of the year, Harambe (RIP) topped the meme list and the biggest questions were "What Is Pokémon Go?" and "How To Play Pokémon Go", presumably typed in immediately after each other.

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, the most searched dog-related question of the year was "How long are dogs pregnant?".
