Rock royalty is on the Alt18 Countdown these days, first with Foo Fighters and now the great Bruce Springsteen. The Boss teamed up with Jack Antonoff and Bleachers for “chinatown,” which debuted at No. 15 this week.
Madison returned this week and so did Gus Dapperton to the Alt18 with “Post Humorous” (something she noted herself). Clairo is also back with “Sofia.”
Paris Jackson — yes, Michael’s daughter — joins the countdown at No. 18 with “Let Down.” Billie Eilish climbed one with “There I Am” after appearing on AltNation for an interview and performance, including a cover of The Beatles, “Something.” Her brother Finneas didn’t fare as well. His “Can’t Wait to Be Dead” dropped off, along with “Guillotine” by Mansionair and NoMBe and “Our Song” by Rainbow Kitten Surprise.
The Countdown also said goodbye to Cannons and “Fire For You” after 16 weeks on the Alt18.
Former Alt18 song “Monsters” by All Time Low featuring Blackbear finished its 12th week as the most-played alternative song on the Billboard alternative charts dating back to Sept. 12, 2020. Checkout a new version of the song featuring Demi Lovato.
