This week's Top 10 of the Billboard Rock Songs chart will have to make do without "Lonely Boy." After 14 weeks at No. 1, the Black Keys smash falls out of our countdown. But don't worry: The Ohio duo aren't completely absent from the chart...
Of Monsters and Men are a new six-piece band from Iceland. Their full-length debut, My Head Is an Animal, came out last month, and this week its first single enters the Rock Songs Top 10. The catchy indie-folk of "Little Talks" debuts at No. 10.
The dance track "Midnight City" keeps inching its way up the countdown. This week, the breakthrough hit for M83 moves up one more spot to No. 8. It comes from Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, which is a double album. M83 frontman Anthony Gonzalez said his inspiration for the record was Smashing Pumpkins' double album, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.
For a second week in a row, "Tongue Tied" holds down the No. 6 spot. Grouplove member Christian Zucconi recently explained the inspiration behind the single: "That song was written pretty fast. I was doing this really moody piano score for this really depressing, moody movie, and during my downtime on break I started playing around with chords and came up with the melody and put a garage-rock beat behind it."
For a while there, it seemed like "Gold on the Ceiling" might be stuck at No. 4 for all eternity. But after a month in that spot, the Black Keys' follow-up to "Lonely Boy" jumps up one spot to No. 3.
"Burn It Down" is moving up. Two weeks ago, the latest single from Linkin Park bum-rushed the chart, landing at No. 2. Now after falling to No. 3 last week, the track from the forthcoming Living Things is back at No. 2. Linkin Park have already had two songs hit No. 1 on the Rock Songs chart, "New Divide" and "The Catalyst," and it definitely seems possible that "Burn It Down" could be their third.
For seven out of the last eight weeks, Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" has been No. 1 on the Rock Songs chart. It's been a remarkable year for the singer-songwriter, who has played on Saturday Night Live and at Coachella already in 2012. Next up for him will be the Summer Sonic Festival in Japan in August.
