Top 10 Rock songs downloaded (Of all time)

  1. TopTen01Radioactive,” Imagine Dragons (7.5 million)
    This smash reached #3 on Billboard’s Hot 100 in July 2013. It was the band’s first top 10 hit. It remained on the chart for a record-setting 87 weeks. It received a Grammy nomination for Record of the Year and won a Grammy for Best Rock Performance. It’s the opening track on the group’s debut album, Night Visions.
  2. Don’t Stop Believin’,” Journey (6.4 million)
    This anthemic hit reached #9 in December 1981. Journey had three higher-charting hits, but “Don’t Stop Believin'” has best stood the test of time. It was the opening track on the band’s seventh studio album, Escape. The song’s coolness factor shot up tremendously when it was featured on the final episode of The Sopranos in June 2007. Of the hundreds of songs that the cast of Glee has performed over the years, their version of this Journey anthem climbed highest on the Hot 100 (#4 in June 2009).
  3. Sail,” AWOLNATION (5.5 million)TopTen02
    This quirky track is one of the biggest sleeper hits in recent years. It finally peaked at #17 in October 2013, more than two years after it first charted (and nearly three years after it was first released). It was the group’s first chart hit. It logged 79 weeks on the Hot 100, second only to “Radioactive.” It’s the only song on this list that didn’t make the weekly top 10. The song, which memorably mentions ADD, is from the group’s debut album, Megalithic Symphony.
  4. How to Save a Life,” The Fray (4.7 million)
    This bittersweet song reached #3 in October 2006. It’s the group’s highest-charting hit. It received a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. It was the title track of the band’s debut album.
  5. Rockstar,” Nickelback (4.5 million)
    This witty song, which namechecks Cher and James Dean, reached #6 in September 2007. Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top contributed the spoken parts between each verse. It was the closing track on the Canadian band’s fifth studio album,All the Right Reasons. It’s the best-selling digital hit by a rock act that hails from outside the U.S.
  6. Use Somebody,” Kings of Leon (4.3 million)TwitterTop03
    This propulsive smash was this Nashville-based group’s first chart hit. It reached #4 in September 2009. It later won Grammys for Record of the Year, Best Rock Song, and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. It was from the group’s fourth album,Only By the Night.
  7. Eye of the Tiger,” Survivor (4.1 million)
    After he was unable to get the publishing rights for Queen’s 1980 smash “Another One Bites the Dust” for his upcoming movie Rocky III, Sylvester Stallone asked Survivor’s Jim Peterik to come up with a new song. “Eye of the Tiger” was the result. It spent six weeks at #1 in July and August 1982, becoming the first of five top 10 hits for the group. It received a Grammy nomination for Song of the Year and won a Grammy for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. The song also received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song. It was the opening track (and title track) of the group’s third album. The song’s title came directly from a line of dialog in the movie. Katy Perry borrowed the line for her 2013 hit “Roar.”
  8. Demons,” Imagine Dragons (4.1 million)
    This song reached #6 in December 2013. It was Imagine Dragons’ second song to remain on the Hot 100 for a full year. Imagine Dragons is the only act with two songs in the top 10 on this list.
  9. Chasing Cars,” Snow Patrol (3.9 million)
    This rock ballad was the first chart hit for the Northern Ireland-based band. The song was featured in the second season finale of Grey’s Anatomy in May 2006. It reached #5 in October 2006 and received a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Song. It was from the band’s fourth album, Eyes Open.
  10. Bohemian Rhapsody,” Queen, 3.8 millionTopTen04
    This wildly imaginative track, which combines operatic and hard-rock sections, was a top 10 hit twice. It reached #9 in April 1976 and #2 in May 1992 (after it was featured in the hit movieWayne’s World). As a result, it was both Queen’s first and last top 10 hit. It received a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Vocal Performance by a Duo, Group, or Chorus. (The Grammys didn’t have separate categories for rock until 1979.) It was voted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2004. It originally appeared on the English band’s fourth album, A Night at the Opera. The single was accompanied by a promotional video, elaborate for its time, which predated the arrival of MTV by nearly six years.

Grizfolk had their stuff stolen! Read how you can help!

grizfolk_spark_400Our friends Grizfolk had their stuff stolen as reported on their social media accounts twitter & facebook.

Here is how you can help according to their facebook post made just moments ago:

Dear friends, thank you all for your outreach and support, it means a lot to us. Last night after the show in Pomona someone broke into our van and stole our gear. We would really appreciate any help finding these items, as some of them were not just valuable but sentimental to us. We are offering a reward, no questions asked, we just want our stuff back. If you’re in Pomona or a surrounding area, we need your help: Please check your local pawn shop, used music retailer, and your local craigslist. Here’s a list and pictures of the items. Keep in mind when searching that the Telecaster guitar and the Elmwood amp head will be the most noticeable items. The telecaster was extremely rare, one of a kind, no other guitar on planet earth has the exact same appearance. Any leads will be so greatly appreciated, please contact richard@intelligentnoise.com.

 

Please repost, retweet, and share with friends. Thanks again for your help.

Rock im Park 2013 Music Festival - Day 3

Volbeat starting to piece together new music!

Rock im Park 2013 Music Festival - Day 3Volbeat drummer Jon Larsen told Finnish outlet Kaaos TV that the band is already beginning to gather ideas for its sixth studio album. Larsen explained that work will probably begin on a new record following the holidays at the end of the year, saying, “Michael (Poulsen, Volbeat frontman), of course, is already starting, he’s already adding stuff and pieces, he’s already thinking about artwork, titles, songs . . . he’s already way ahead of that. But we’re gonna start up probably either late December already maybe or definitely early January and lock ourselves in the rehearsal room and try to come up with some new stuff.”

Volbeat will have a little break in late August before returning to the U.S. and Poulsen told us he hopes to some work on new music then: “We’ll be home for, I guess, three weeks or something and at the same time I have a lot of ideas for new songs. I have to sit down in my own house and put the pieces together and come up with some new songs. I’m looking forward to get back home and say hello to my family and start writing a little bit, and then before we know it we’re back on the road.”

Volbeat’s co-headlining North American tour with Five Finger Death Punch will kick off on September 16th in Salt Lake City.

Volbeat’s fifth album, Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies, was released last year.

The group’s latest single, “Dead But Rising,” is the sixth track from the band to reach the Top Three at rock radio.
