Rock Sweep: March 28, 2015...


Round two of today's "chart sweeps" is up, checking out the newest hits on the Billboard charts, and this time out I've got the latest on rock radio...

On their main Rock Airplay chart, Walk The Moon's "Shut Up And Dance" spends a fifth week on top...

Rocketing in at #5 is British folk-rock band Mumford & Sons with "Believe", my "Rock Pick of the Week". It's from their upcoming Wilder Mind album. They went to #1 here in 2012 with "I Will Wait"...

English singer/songwriter James Bay arrives at #37 with "Hold Back The River". The song is the #1 airplay hit in the UK this week...


It's a "hat trick" for the Brits this week as London-based blues-rock group The Temperance Movement lands at #42 with "Take It Back". The song is currently #18 on the Mainstream Rock list...


Vegas modern rock act Imagine Dragons fire it up at #50 with "Shots". They drop off the top ten to #14 on this list with "I Bet My Life"...


And now on to the rock radio format charts....

On the Mainstream Rock radio panel,  Halestorm take their second trip to #1 with "Apocalyptic". They also reigned with "Freak Like Me" in 2013...

British neo-metal duo Royal Blood are back at #28 with "Little Monster", the third American single from their self-titled debut. The first, "Out Of The Black", peaked at #2 last year...


Hard rockers Flyleaf land at #38 with "Thread". It's the follow-up to "Set Me On Fire", which went to #36...


The second release from Framing Hanley's The Sum Of Who We Are album, "Collide", crashes the party at #39. The first, "Criminal", topped out at #22...


Meanwhile, on the Alternative/Modern Rock chart, Modest Mouse move to #1 with "Lampshades On Fire". It's their second chart-topper - the first, "Float On" led ten years ago. Also, Mumford & Sons' aforementioned "Believe" jets in at #5, while "Shots" from Imagine Dragons comes in at #31...

Meg Myers pulls in at #35 with "Sorry"...


Australian indie-pop group Sheppard crosses over to this list at #35 with "Geronimo". The track is #14 on the Adult-Pop chart as well...


Electro-pop outfit Big Data, led by producer Alan Wilkis, follows up their #1 alternative hit "Dangerous" with the song at #40, "The Business Of Emotion" featuring White Sea (aka singer/songwriter Morgan Kibby)...


Lastly, on the Triple-A (or "adult album alternative") format, Death Cab For Cutie rides to the top for the third time with "Black Sun", while Mumford & Sons debut at #5 with "Believe", and Imagine Dragons' "Shots" arrives at #28...

I'll return in an hour and a half with the latest on R&B radio...
