Top 100 Most Played Metal & Alt. Rock Songs Played by Alt. Entertainments

Hello Again! If you haven't I suggest you see my other charts:



As it suggests; whatever is the most played songs no matter the genre.



This is a list that recounts all the songs that I might play at an indie or Metal night. However, I felt it doesn't really represent what I would do all too well, as I am essentially a pop DJ too so I think it skews the list. So I decided to add 2 new lists for this year:



As it suggests I did take the liberty of adding some grunge artists and a few Pop-Punk acts where appropriate it's a bit difficult to walk the line between indie and harder genres sometimes but on the whole a lot more accurate than the Alternative list I feel.


So That Leads me to this list I've decided to group metal, Pop-Punk, Alt-Rock, Grunge, I will add a few classic Rock, and some older punk songs too but I may be a touch decerning with that.
