HomeQuick HitsBillboard’s Top 10 Rock Songs Carl August 21, 2012 Quick Hits, Rock 2 Comments Here are Billboard’s Top Ten Rock songs for the week of August 25. I still don’t know why they are a week ahead: 1. Oh Love: Green Day 2. Burn It Down: Linkin Park 3. Too Close: Alex Clare 4. Some Nights: fun. 5. Gold on the Ceiling: The Black Keys 6. Ho Hey: The Lumineers 7. Little Talks: Of Monsters and Men 8. Days Go By: The Offspring 9. Unity: Shinedown 10. Tongue Tied: Grouplove *** Soul of Wit I can answer that one. They’re a week ahead because Billboard is a print magazine. Print periodicals, regardless of how often they are published, usually are dated so that the magazine doesn’t immediately look dated on the shelf. Carl Thanks, as usual. Makes perfect sense.
