WOW! Linkin Park 115-7 at Alternative & 112-6 on Active Rock in spins! This is great to see! But will HAC &/or T40 give this song a chance? Remember In The End topped both in early 2002 without ever going for adds at either.

As I’ve said, the recurrency rules on Pop and the Hot 100 are very inconsistent and arbitrary. The runs of UIFY and Unstoppable have exposed them. Here’s what I’d do to fix them:

 

On Pop, songs should be protected from recurrency until (1) they have had at least 2 falling weeks AND (2) they have peaked in streaming. In that way, we prevent songs like UIFY from going recurrent on Pop while still rising on streaming/the Hot 100.

 

I’d also create a rule that makes songs recurrent on Pop ineligible from re-entering on the Hot 100. This would prevent songs like Unstoppable from re-entering the Hot 100 (and lingering on the chart for a few months) post-holiday season without a new boost.

I actually agree with a lot of what you are saying. But the Hot 100 can't revolve around 1 format, even if CHR has a plurality-majority of the audience. Country is 2nd biggest & songs from there can now crack the T10 without crossover any airplay now.

Highly doubt it, Alternative and Rock are very loyal to legends like Linkin Park. They depend a lot on recurrent airplay for their current basis and LP are among the most played artists on the format for years, just based on previous stuff. On the other hand, Top 40 is very tricky, they function according to trends and demand, one day you're a hit, the other day you're not missed.

Yeah, the same should apply to country (as well as other genres). If a song has gone recurrent on its main genre’s radio with no crossover, it shouldn’t be allowed to return to the Hot 100 without another push. There’s no reason why a song like TKOLWM, which Luke’s team moved on from in October after peaking on country radio and went recurrent on the Hot 100 in early December, should still be on the Hot 100 in late February.

Actually having heard the song Lost probably wouldn't be that out of place at HAC &/or Pop. It has a trap-somewhat EDM beat. Of course Lost has some guitar & Chester's voice does get loud at times. The keyboards & Rhythmic beats are why LP still got a little mainstream airplay after all other Rock acts had been rudely shoved out of Pops doors. Burn It Down climbed to #25 at T40 3 years after Second Chance reached #3.

It's a shame I don't see LP listed on your favorite artists, but I'm sure you still appreciate them (as you should). I'd totally be here for it if they could crossover. Not a big fan of the song, seems bland to me, but still rooting for them.

 

Well, last year MGK's "my ex's best friend" climbed to Top 3 on Pop, it's the closest to rock we've had.

 

If it helps..

Maybe they'll give it a chance. I learned today Lost was supposed to serve as 2003 Meteora's opening song. That instead went to Somewhere I Belong (I remember this well being the 1st Rock song to debut in the H100s Top 50 without crossover airplay). LP added Lost to Meteora's 20th Anny reissue & it's their 1st release since Chester's suicide 6 years ago. So maybe we will see other songs sung by Chester later this year. 

 

I had Linkin Park listed among my favorite acts when I limited my signature to only Rock artists. When I decided I should also list my Country acts I had to remove some Rock to make room. I think LP is still listed as a favorite act in my ATRL profile though.

I read that there going to be included 6 unreleased songs due to Meteora 20th anniversary. How time flies...

I'm really surprised Escapism is doing so well tbh. It's a fine song, love the sound, but it doesn't have much of a hook or anything memorable tbh. Is there a label push here? Also surprised to see Calm Down getting a second wind. Just doesn't seem like the song radio would've supported as much as they have. 

 

Also didn't realize Wrapped Around Your Finger was already done :deadbanana4: Damn radio seems done with Posty

What? The song is full of hooks :deadbanana:

The prechorus line melodies rising in "sipping chamPAGNE", "sniffing cocAINE"

"I don't wanna fell how I did last night" melody

"Doctor-doctor, anything please?" syncopated hook

No, Glimpse of Us (with a -932 update on 10/23/2022) was the biggest drop ever. I blame Joji for waiting way too long to release the album.
