RNR News and Notes

 

In case you missed it - not only is 2019 coming to an end - prompting countless year end best of lists - but the decade is also coming to an end ... and Billboard Magazine has released its top 50 Hot Rock Songs of the decade.  

 

The list has some solid entries - like Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, and Portugal. the Man. Some questionable entries - Lil Wayne?  And a lot of Imagine Dragons and twenty one pilots.  

 

 

 

Yep - it was Imagine Dragons who apparently ruled the decade (despite our brief boycott of the band in 2018 LOL) - claiming 8 spots on the list - including the top three for their songs Believer, Thunder, and Radioactive.
