Twenty One Pilots’ “Stressed Out” Once Again Ranks as Alt Radio’s Most-Added Song

Twenty One Pilots [ABC]

The streak continues as twenty one pilots’ “Stressed Out” tops the alternative radio add board for a third straight week.

This week’s most-added honor comes thanks to adds from 9 Mediabase-monitored alternative stations. That count gives the song, which is already a Top 15 hit on the official airplay chart, the edge over Imagine Dragons’ “Roots.”

Added by 7 stations, “Roots” ranks as this week’s second-most-added song.

Chris Cornell’s “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart,” Grizfolk’s “Troublemaker,” and Muse’s “Mercy” follow in a three-way tie for third-most-added. Each song scored 6 weekly pickups.
