This week's Billboard Rock Songs chart
doesn't feature any debuts in the Top 10. So here's a preview of the order of the songs on our countdown: punk-pop, post-grunge, punk, modern rock, alt-metal, post-grunge, pop-rock, old-school grunge, veteran funk-rock, and the year's most popular rock band. Think you've got 'em figured out? Let's see if you're right...

Look out below: After three weeks at No. 7, "Up All Night" drops three spots, almost falling out of the Top 10 altogether. Blink-182
's lead single off Neighborhoods
got as high as No. 6, but it doesn't look like it has much life left on our countdown.

debuted at No. 10 last week with their single "Bottoms Up." This week, the Here and Now
single moves up one place. The new album is their first since 2008's Dark Horse
, which managed to go triple-platinum.

"Make It Stop" isn't done yet. After falling a spot last week, the anti-bullying song from Rise Against
moves up from No. 9 to No. 8. The band just completed a U.S. tour with Foo Fighters, who, yes, you may also be seeing on this week's countdown.

performed "Paradise" on The Colbert Report
on October 20, and on our countdown the Mylo Xyloto
cut moves up one spot. The album's first single, "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall," peaked at No. 5 on the Rock Songs chart.

"Not Again" was as high as No. 4 on our chart, but Staind
are now heading in the wrong direction. After four weeks at No. 5, the lead single from the band's self-titled disc
retreats to No. 6.

Seether continue to make slow progress up the chart. "Tonight" had been at No. 6 for three consecutive weeks, but this week the post-grunge
group move up one spot. Seether will be touring Europe with 3 Doors Down in the new year.

"Pumped Up Kicks" was at No. 3 for almost three full months. Foster the People aren't quite as high on our chart now, but it's close: For a second straight week the L.A. trio are hanging out at No. 4

Can "The Sound of Winter" claim the top spot on our chart by the time it's actually winter? We'll see: For a second consecutive week, the Bush
comeback single resides at No. 3. Gavin Rossdale's band is one of three groups at the top of our countdown who were churning out hits in the 1990s.

"The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie" is one of the year's best rock songs
, but that doesn't help it much on the Rock Songs chart, where it sits at No. 2 for a fifth straight week. The Red Hot Chili Peppers
track was No. 1 for eight weeks.

stay atop our countdown for a fifth straight week -- and a sixth time overall -- with "Walk." The second single from Wasting Light
to seemingly take up permanent residence at No. 1 -- "Rope" was the big kahuna for a startling 20 weeks -- "Walk" is the sort of uplifting anthem that you can very easily imagine will rule the Rock Songs roost for a while.
