Active Rock Radio Quarterly Report - Hard Rock Daddy

Hard Rock Daddy’s HRD Radio Report provides a weekly look at the Top 50 songs on the Mediabase Active Rock Chart.  Using the actual spins that each song in the Top 50 has received in the fourth quarter of 2016, we have compiled a ranking of the songs by spin totals.  It should be noted that this recap is based solely on spin totals, not editorial opinion.  Below the Top 50 Active Rock songs of the fourth quarter of 2016, you will find the Top 15 Octane Big ‘Uns Countdown songs for the same time period.
