    Awesome, very deserving #1, great to see this particular Linkin Park song jump to the top of the chart!

    Also kudos to KROQ for listening to our feedback since last week, reducing the airplay of much older songs like 2am, 1901, Lay Me Down, and Resistance and instead giving other other songs a chance to be the next big hit.

  • Bo

    hope Mumford and Bad Religion can make it back up the list. And I still vote that KROQ puts Fitz & the Tantrums and Red Cortez into main rotation.

  • MCR

    Wow…play radioactive more.

  • Cmo

    Does anyone else think the new My Chem song sucks?

    oh man its terrible, not 2AM terrible but still pretty awful.

    • alexcuse

      their old stuff definitely sound a lot better! hope there are better songs on the new album

  • pablo
