i know that the rock charts on billboard are a bit of a hoot and stomp nightmare right now but the return of fall out boy might mitigate this? also apparently awolnation's 'kill your heroes' is being re-reissued as a single now, which i am totally fine with

If there's anything I've learned from playing Songpop on Facebook, it's that I paid zero attention this genre for at least the past 13-15 years.

If only American radio had not been deregulated in the 90s (and fm rock radio not turned into AOR by Lee Abrams in the late '70s)...

I heard 10 seconds of an Imagine Dragons song in a commercial and thought they sounded like AWOLNATION 2.0

i don't understand what this means, it has been their current single and a big hit for months

not 2013 but 2011, but i was listening to the rock radio stations in vegas last weekend and heard this song, which is actually pretty okay, which surprised me because i have felt hatred for seether since high school

maura, Thursday, 18 April 2013 17:57 (six years ago) link

some dude, Thursday, 18 April 2013 17:59 (six years ago) link

btw brad you will be completely unsurprised to learn that i have written favorably about that Seether song (and compared the chorus to Republica's "Ready To Go")

some dude, Thursday, 18 April 2013 17:59 (six years ago) link

one month passes...

how long until this song is in literally ever movie trailer? (i don't pay attn to movies or watch tv so for all i know this may have already happened)

dyl, Friday, 24 May 2013 07:46 (six years ago) link

oh and i posted it here b/c i keep hearing it on the alt rock radio station, altho to my ears it could just as well fit in the rolling pop thread

dyl, Friday, 24 May 2013 07:47 (six years ago) link

*EVERY movie trailer gah

dyl, Friday, 24 May 2013 07:47 (six years ago) link

yeah it's def primarily an alt radio hit but it'll prob cross over soon enough.

lotta terrible new acts on the rock charts these days, can't keep Capital Cities and The Neighborhood and New Politics straight

my mans ray manzarek (some dude), Friday, 24 May 2013 11:52 (six years ago) link

two months pass...

Anything new here worth paying attention to?

curmudgeon, Monday, 29 July 2013 22:22 (six years ago) link

The Neighborhood's "Sweater Weather" and Muse's "Panic Station" are my favorites so far this year. Atlas Genius's new one better than their first hit also.

some dude, Monday, 29 July 2013 22:30 (six years ago) link

thanks

curmudgeon, Tuesday, 30 July 2013 03:59 (six years ago) link

"sweater weather" is so great

can't stand the whole neighborhood record though

oi, modern rock listeners:

i never listen to modern rock radio anymore, so i have no idea about this. on the harder end of modern rock programming, would vocals like this (the hoarse growling ones, not the sung ones)

http://www.invisibleoranges.com/2013/06/mouth-of-the-architect-dawning/

place the music as 'abrasive' or relatively normal? they seem pretty polite to me but a lot of the sounds here are otherwise kind of modern-rock-ready (snare sound, sung vocals, anthemic dynamics)

xps OH! So that's what Capital Cities sounds like. I have a friend who talks about them a lot, and now I know I shouldn't listen to her anymore.

Ⓓⓡ. (Johnny Fever), Thursday, 1 August 2013 06:14 (six years ago) link

Capital Cities just entered the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 this week. Why are they considered alt rock again? They just sound like pure dance pop to me. Have you heard their covers of "Nothing Compares 2 U" an "Holiday" ?

LeRooLeRoo, Thursday, 8 August 2013 17:43 (six years ago) link

Well I never quite understood how Sinead O Connor's Nothing Compares 2U was alt rock either.

lol otm
