Imagine Dragons’ “I Bet My Life” is Now One of Alternative’s 5 Most-Played

Alternative radio’s top spot remains in the possession of Foo Fighters’ “Something from Nothing,” but movement changes continue to occur at other notable checkpoints.

The latest change? Imagine Dragons’ “I Bet My Life” has become one of the format’s five most-played songs.

Thanks to the 1,767 spins it received between November 29 and December 5, “Life” grabs the #5 spot on Mediabase’s rolling alternative airplay chart. It will need to hold off Cage the Elephant’s surging #6 “Cigarette Daydreams” to secure a top five spot on Mediabase’s official chart (which comes out Sunday evening), but nothing changes the fact that it presently stands as the fifth-most-played song.

Only “Something from Nothing,” Hozier’s “Take Me to Church,” Milky Chance’s “Stolen Dance” and Fall Out Boy’s “Centuries” received more alternative airplay over the trailing seven days.

While the multi-format “I Bet My Life” is not yet a major factor at pop radio, it has already risen to #26 on the hot adult contemporary airplay chart.
