Here are the 20 most popular tracks on New Music United this week.
1. Motor feat. Martin Gore is a four months old track that is still not officially released. This radio rip has been an underground hit in the blogosphere all summer and now it’s back on number one for some reason.
2. Everybody hates the first blog single from the Lou Reed/Metallica collaboration, but it still manages to make the top of the chart. Music fans are curious people. Personally, I think don’t think it’s that bad.
3. Manic Street Preachers is an exclusive NMU stream and keeps a strong presence top ten on the chart.
4. Giana Factory, Mikael Simpson (three blog singles on NMU), Kristina Renée, Laust Sonne (three blog singles on NMU) and Darkness Falls are extremely popular Danish artists on NMU.
5. Modern English, Anal Cunt (R.I.P.), The Stooges (sic!) and Roxy Music are all “rediscovered tracks” mingling with all the new releases.
6. Is Tropical, S.C.U.M. and Koudlam (a contender for single of the year!) are official “NMU darlings”.
Oh, and the Flaming Lips blog single is six hours long!
