My Look At Billboard's Alternative

I will be looking at Billboard's Alternative charts and grading them from A-F. rWill do this prob every month
1Fitz and the Tantrums
More Than Just a Dream


"Out of My League" - a sellout song from a decent indie-soul band. Take out sax,
add in synth and this is it. C+
2Lorde
Pure Heroine


"Royals" - The worst song on her addicting debut, #1 for 7 wks was a bit too much
for it. B-
3Bastille
Bad Blood


"Pompeii" - Decent indie pop with a big hook. Gang chants do turn it off for me a bit
though. AY HEY OH AY HEY OH! B+
4Grouplove
Spreading Rumours


"Ways to Go" - One of the worst songs I've heard this year; shitty vocals, over-use
of synths and bad lyrics. F
5Imagine Dragons
Night Visions


"Demons" - Coldplay rip off, pretty bland and lifeless too. C+
6Cage the Elephant
Melophobia


"Come a Little Closer" - Better than Thank You Happy Birthday, but far off from
classics like "In One Ear" or "Rest for the Wicked" B+
7Capital Cities
In a Tidal Wave of Mystery


"Safe and Sound" - Not alternative; this is shit synth pop. Fuck this song so hard
up its own ass. D+
8Tame Impala
Lonerism


"Elephant" - Yay, psychedelic on the alternative charts! Lovin' this so much! A+
9The Neighbourhood
I Love You


"Sweater Weather" - Bland as fuck, bad and lazy rhymes: "house" and "blouse";
hipster indie shit. C
10Kings of Leon
Mechanical Bull


"Supersoaker" - Not worthy for their comeback single, rather boring and simple. B
11Phoenix
Bankrupt!


"Trying to Be Cool" - They can try to be cool, but 1901 was their peak and this is
far off. C+
1230 Seconds to Mars
Love Lust Faith + Dreams


"City of Angels" - Overly long, but manages to be one of the best tracks off of their
latest shitfest. B+
13New Politics
A Bad Girl in Harlem


"Harlem" - It's pretty bland and overplayed on radio. C+
14MS MR
Secondhand Rapture


"Hurricane" - goddamn it i hate this song. it's devoid of personality and meaning. C+
15Avicii
True


"Wake Me Up!" - This is not fuckin alternative. Shitty EDM and no more. F
16Panic! at the Disco
Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!


"Miss Jackson" - Way too Fall Out Boy rip-off and repetitive. D+
17Linkin Park
Recharged


"A Light That Never Comes" - Nu-metal sellouts yet again. Steve Aoki dubstep is
what kills this Burn it Down Part 2. D+
18 Coldplay
Atlas


"Atlas" - Bland and lifeless, like everything else Coldplay do. D+
19Arcade Fire
Reflektor


"Reflektor" - YES! Love this shit. A+
