So I, along with Atlantaboy and a few others, had been complaining about the lack of rock songs crossing over to Hot AC. Well it appears that things are changing pretty quickly. Let's take a look at all of the rock crossovers on Hot AC right now.
That's an impressive group of songs there...I don't ever remember this many on the chart at one time. Granted, most of them are only minor hits being played by a certain number of stations. There are Alt-leaning Hot ACs out there playing Nirvana and whatnot that have no quarrels playing these songs.
^It's there, but it's only so many stations - I kinda think that Indie/Alternative is gonna continue to cross over to HAC in the next couple years (just cause there's so much new stuff coming out), but a lot of stations that target older people are gonna resist it
I think when Alanis and the Goo Goo Dolls first came out a lot of HACs resisted their stuff too cause it appealed to younger listeners back then, but they eventually caved in, so I'm really hoping the same thing will happen in 2012
But what about "Dynamite" going top 5? I think that appeals to adults a lot less than these rock songs....at least I would hope so.
It's really weird now lol - according to a lot of people I've talked to, stuff like Dynamite is fine for adults now, I think cause they "get it", more than they "get" Mumford & Sons, 30 Seconds To Mars, or MGMT - I know, it seems like it would be the opposite though...
I'd rather have to go listen to Dynamite than any Mumford & Sons. I know that y'all know that I'm a pop listener; however, I hated Dynamite this past summer and I detest all of Mumford & Son's music. I tried getting into it but it's just so bland, boring, uninteresting and lacks any charm. Dynamite has grown on me to the point where I might humm along once in a blue moon but I could never get through a full Mumford & Sons song . I do like hearing Linkin Park and My Chemical Romance on the format .
