2015 Mid-Year Recap: HRD Radio Report Active Rock and Octane Big ‘Uns Countdown

2015 Mid-Year Recap - HRD Radio Report and Octane Big Uns Countdown

Last summer, Hard Rock Daddy launched the HRD Radio Report to provide 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 since the beginning of 2015, we have compiled a mid-year recap to rank the songs by spin totals.  If you read the HRD Radio Report, you are fully aware that we believe that there are a number of songs that have no place on the Active Rock chart.  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 year so far, you will find the Top 15 Octane Big ‘Uns Countdown mid-year recap.

NOTE:  To read song reviews, click on the hyperlinked song titles, and to read album reviews, click on the hyperlinked band names.
