Arctic Monkeys top Alternative Rock Chart for fourteenth week

See also

Despite strong challenges from the Kongos and Fitz & The Tantrums (which rank Number One and number to respectively in total detections), the Arctic Monkeys “Do I Wanna Know?” is the most-heard Active Rock radio across the country for the 14th straight week. For the week ending April 19, Mediabase and All Access report the track accumulated 13.687 impressions, which actually represents an increase of 231,000 impressions from the week ending April 12.

However, very close behind the Arctic Monkeys are Fitz & The Tantrums “The Walker”, which finished second in impressions with 13.482 million impressions for the week after a fifth-largest increase of 559,000 impressions compared to the tracking period ending April 12, and the Kongos “Come With Me Now”, which accumulated 13.238 million impressions between April 13 and April 19, after the third-largest audience gain on the chart of 857,000 impressions. Given the trends, either the Kongos or Fitz & The Tantrums should both jump the Arctic Monkeys next week, but which of the former two songs actually takes over Number One remains to be seen.

How the Alternative Rock Chart rankings are compiled

Top 50 Alternative Rock Chart uses Mediabase data provided to All Access from the period of Sunday, April 13 through Saturday, April 19. Songs are ranked by audience impressions. All stations reporting to Mediabase, not just the “published” stations are included in the weekly rankings, and Currents and Recurrents are ranked together. Should two tracks tie in impressions, the song with the higher spin total wins the tie-breaker. For further information from All Access, please visit the website, Facebook page, Twitter feed, and Google+ page.

Chart Legend

For this chart, songs that gain are listed in BOLD, followed by a “+” after its impression total. Songs losing in audience are not printed in bold, and are given a “--” sign behind its impressions total. Impressions are listed in millions: TW = This Week, LW = Last Week, GG = Greatest Gainers, #1-#5, BL = Biggest Loser, R = Recurrents, NE = New Entry, and RE = Re Entry. The actual change in audience is provided for the five Greatest Gainers and the week's biggest loser compared to the previous chart week.
