Foo Fighters’ “Outside” Repeats as Rock Radio’s Most Added; Silversun Pickups’ “Nightlight” Scores at Alt

Foo Fighters [RCA]

For the second straight week, Foo Fighters’ “Outside” ranks as active rock radio’s most-added song.

After topping last week’s add board with 18 pickups, it wins this week’s race thanks to adds from 16 Mediabase-monitored active rock stations. The latest wave of support will allow the song, which is already inside the Top 25 on the building airplay chart, to continue soaring at the format.

Other notable active rock options included Bring Me the Horizon’s “Throne” (14 adds, 2nd-most-added), Muse’s “Mercy” (11 adds, 3rd-most-added), In This Moment’s “Big Bad Wolf” (5 adds, 4th-most-added), Breaking Benjamin’s “Angels Fall” (4 adds, 5th-most-added, tie) and The Struts’ “Could Have Been Me” (4 adds, 5th-most-added tie).

— While “Outside” also ranked as last week’s most-added alternative song, it settles for second on this week’s add board. Silversun Pickups’ “Nightlight” earned the alternative radio format’s greatest quantity of support this week.

According to Mediabase, “Nightlight” scored adds from 22 monitored stations. “Outside” received 12 new pickups.

Other notable alternative options included Foals’ “Mountain at My Gates” (9 adds, 3rd-most-added), Halsey’s “New Americana” (7 adds, 4th-most-added, tie) and Meg Myers’ “Lemon Eyes” (7 adds, 4th-most-added, tie).
