For the first time since November, there are no Black Keys songs in the Top 10 of the Billboard Rock Songs chart. That's right: "Gold on the Ceiling" has fallen out off the countdown, although the follow-up single, "Little Black Submarines," is currently at No. 13. Regardless, the Black Keys' exit opens the door for one new entry. Instead, an old song has returned for an encore...
Two weeks ago, "Little Talks" tumbled off the chart. Of Monsters and Men's hit had reached the No. 3 position, but it seemed like that was the last we were going to hear of that song. Apparently not: "Little Talks" returns to the Top 10 this week, sitting at No. 10. Meanwhile, the Icelandic group have put together a video for the follow-up single, "Mountain Sound."
Another song seemingly on the way out, "Tongue Tied," has delayed its exit from the countdown for at least another week. After falling to No. 10 last week, the Grouplove single moves up a spot to No. 9. "Tongue Tied" has now been on the chart for a solid five months.
For a second straight week, Imagine Dragons are at No. 7 with "It's Time." (This is actually the song's second go-round in our Top 10. Previously, it got as high as No. 6.) The band's first full-length effort, Night Visions, was just released, debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart.
After three weeks stalled at No. 5, "Ho Hey" gains some ground on the Rock Songs chart, moving up to No. 4. The band's self-titled debut peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard album chart.
Alex Clare continues to threaten to take over the No. 1 spot, but for a third consecutive week, "Too Close" stands at No. 2. Propelled by its placement in an Internet Explorer ad, the track (which is from Clare's 2011 album The Lateness of the Hour) has just been certified platinum.
