Top 100 Most Played Metal & Alt. Rock Songs Played by Alt. Entertainments 2023 Update

Hey there! If you haven't already, check out my other charts:


  • Features the overall most played songs, spanning various genres.

  • A collection reflecting songs played at indie or metal nights, but it may not fully capture my diverse style as a pop DJ.

  • This list is a more accurate representation, incorporating grunge artists and select pop-punk acts but mainly Indie Rock. Navigating the indie and harder genres, it paints a clearer picture of my musical journey.



In essence, my aim is to blend metal, pop-punk, alt-rock, grunge, with a sprinkle of classic rock and older punk tunes. Enjoy the musical ride!
