Bleachers, Fall Out Boy Rank as Alternative’s Most-Added

Bleachers | NBC

Two songs respectful of the past are making waves in the present.

According to Mediabase, Bleachers’ Bruce Springsteen-inspired “Rollercoaster” and Fall Out Boy’s Suzanne Vega-sampling “Centuries” tied for most-added at alternative radio.

In a separate class at the format, they each scored 19 monitored Mediabase adds this week. That tally more than triples that of alternative’s next-most-added song.

Knox Hamilton’s “Work it Out,” that song, landed at six additional stations.

Arctic Monkeys’ “R U Mine?,” The Black Keys’ “Gotta Get Away,” Death from Above 1979’s “Trainwreck 1979” and New Politics’ “Everywhere I Go (Kings and Queens)” followed in a four way tie for fourth-most-added. They each scored 4 adds this week.

“Rollercoaster,” which is already #44 on Mediabase’s rolling alternative airplay chart, is the follow-up to Bleachers’ #1 “I Wanna Get Better.” “Centuries” is the lead single from Fall Out Boy’s forthcoming album.
