Alt18 Countdown on Sirius XM, 2/20/21: Weezer returns at No. 2; Gus Dapperton eyes top spot, but grandson holds

Hello, Weezer.

Some volatility on the Alt18 this week with Weezer jumping back in at No. 2 with “All My Favorite Songs” and countdown stalwarts Tame Impala and Bastille dropping off. Still, grandson held at No. 1 with “Dirty” and the Foo Fighters are right in the mix with “Waiting on a War.”

Foushee returned to the Alt18 this week with “Deep End,” and the wild benny blanco/Marshmello/Vance Joy collab “You” joined at No. 17. KennyHoopla is back with buddy Travis Barker and their “ESTELLA,” and a new band to me, carolesdaughter debuted at No. 11 with “Violent.”

Also leaving this week: Royal Blood’s “Trouble Coming,” broken people’s “almost monday,” Sir Sly’s “Material Boy” and Holly Humberstone’s “Falling Asleep at the Wheel.” It’s the first time Sir Sly and Tame are off the countdown since Oct. 4, 2020. MISSIO now holds the longest stay with “Can You Feel the Sun,” which has been on since Oct. 24.

Here’s the updated Spotify playlist.
