This week's Billboard Rock Songs chart doesn't have any room for Foster the People or Rise Against in the Top 10, so away they go. In their place we have two new songs, but neither of them can unseat our current No. 1, which comes from a land Down Under....
The first of two debuts comes from Grouplove. The danceable indie tune "Tongue Tied" is off the band's 2011 debut, Never Trust a Happy Song, and this week it enters our chart at No. 9. If the song sounds familiar, that's because it was used in an iPod Touch commercial.
In 2011, Seether put out Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray, which has already produced the hit singles "Country Song" and "Tonight." Now, here comes a third single from the disc. "No Resolution" is this week's top debut, landing at No. 8. Currently, Seether are touring with Nickelback.
"Face to the Floor" may be nearing the end of its run in the Top 10, but it isn't in any hurry to exit the countdown. After four weeks at No. 6, the latest hit from Chevelle drops one spot to No. 7. By the way, Chevelle's follow-up single, "Hats Off to the Bull," is rising up the Rock Songs chart and currently resides at No. 25.
"Gold on the Ceiling" sure looks like it's got a date with the highest rungs of our countdown. Two weeks after crashing our chart at No. 10, the Black Keys cut is already at No. 6.
While "Gold on the Ceiling" zooms up the chart, the first single off El Camino, "Lonely Boy," hangs out at No. 4 for a second week in a row. But, to be fair, the song was No. 1 for 14 weeks, so you can understand if it wants to just take it easy for a while and chill.
In its first week of release, Amaryllis, the latest album from Shinedown, had a strong showing, debuting at No. 4 on the Billboard album chart. (That's the highest any Shinedown record has ever placed on the chart.) On our countdown, that album's first single, "Bully," sits tight at No. 3 for a second straight week.
The New York group fun. are still having a ball on the Rock Songs chart. For a second week in a row, "We Are Young," which has been No. 1 on the pop chart for more than a month, are at No. 2.
"Somebody That I Used to Know" details the fallout from a former love affair that still haunts the singer. Likewise, Gotye's insanely catchy hit has transfixed listeners, and for a third week in a row it sits at No. 1 on our countdown. The timing couldn't be more perfect for his forthcoming performance at this year's Coachella.
