twenty one pilots’ “Ride” holds at #2 with ~2,901 spins (-33), while The Lumineers’ “Ophelia” remains #3 on the strength of its ~2,759 weekly plays (+37).

Blink-182’s “Bored To Death,” which received ~2,442 tracking week spins (+336), follows at #4. A weekly spin count of ~2,397 (+353) keeps Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Dark Necessities” stationary at #5.

Up two places, “Way Down We Go” earns #9 courtesy a weekly spin count of ~1,833 (+220).
