On this week's Billboard Rock Songs chart, we don't have any room for M83's "Midnight City," which falls out of the Top 10 after a 10-week run. In its place comes some more indie-rock, but No. 1 still belongs to a veteran rap-rock unit...
The catchy indie tune "It's Time" is this week's sole debut, landing at No. 10. It's from the new Las Vegas quartet Imagine Dragons, who self-released several EPs before putting out February's Continued Silence through Interscope. They'll be touring across the U.S. with AWOLNATION in September and October.
It's laudable that Soundgarden aren't rushing to put out a reunion album, but with the success of "Live to Rise," you have to assume that some fans would love to get their hands on a full disc from the band. On our countdown, "Live to Rise" is at No. 6 for a second consecutive week.
"Days Go By" had been breezing up the countdown, but this week the latest from the Offspring hits a bit of a snag. The title track from their forthcoming album stalls at No. 5.
Gotye (with an assist from vocalist Kimbra) commandeered the top spot on the Rock Songs countdown for seven out of eight weeks with "Somebody That I Used to Know." Recently, though, the Making Mirrors track has been very gradually moving down the chart. This week, the melancholy breakup tune falls one place to No. 4.
Could "Tongue Tied" hit No. 1? Grouplove's hit has been on the countdown for more than two months now, but it never looked like it had the sort of undeniable momentum that would catapult it into the top spot. But this week, "Tongue Tied" moves up another notch to No. 3. (On the Alternative Songs chart, it just reached No. 1 this week.)
