Alternative Music Charts

Billboard Alternative Music Chart: #1 – Billie Eilish, Therefore I am | Spotify playlist

New Alternative 40 Chart: My personal favorite Spotify playlist. Description says it’s pulled from 50 new indie and alternative sources each week. Often lines up with the Download 15 on Sirius XMU.

Download 15: Speaking of the DL15, here’s a Spotify playlist organized by Clint Smith.

Muzooka: Alt music chart used by iHeartRadio and USA Today. Grandson was bragging about cracking the Top 10 this week, so it means something to artists.

Roots Music Report: New one for me, but I just started paying attention to these things. Michael Franti is at No. 1 this week. Interesting list this week.

iTunesChart: Genre chart from iTunes has AJR’s “Bang” at No. 1 this week. New Weezer is up there, too.

Official Charts: UK-based alt and rock chart.

Amazon Best Sellers: Wild list that includes Green Day’s “Dookie” and Foo Fighters’ “Greatest Hits.” Taylor Swift is No. 1, though.
