“Bored To Death,” the lead single from Blink-182’s new “California,” tops the Mediabase alternative chart for a second straight week.

The Blink single received a format-leading ~3,081 spins during the June 26-July 2 tracking week. That bests last week’s count by 58, thus giving “Bored To Death” an even clearer advantage on the chart.

Up one place, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Dark Necessities” earns #2 despite a week-to-week loss in airplay. It was played ~2,804 times this week (-70).

The Lumineers’ former #1 “Ophelia” slips one place to #3 with a weekly spin count of ~2,743 (-230). Kaleo’s “Way Down We Go” holds at #4 with ~2,614 plays (+73), while Fitz & The Tantrums’ “HandClap” is stationary at #5 with ~2,397 (+28).
