Apparently Coldplay and The 1975 are amongst the Top 20 Rock Acts In The World

Yesterday was ‘The International Day Of Rock‘ apparently. Nobody told us. We just listened to Little Mix on repeat.

To celebrate the occasion Spotify have released a list of ‘The Top 20 Rock Acts In The World’ according to total streams this year (and not smashed up hotel rooms).

There’s a whole bunch of our shiny favourites (Hey Twenty One Pilots, Fall Out Boy, Paramore and Former Upset Cover Stars Linkin Park and Panic! At The Disco) as well as a couple of not-really-rock-bands-but-who-cares-anyway acts like Kings of Leon and The 1975.

Here’s the list in full anyway.

1. Coldplay
2. Twenty One Pilots
3. The Beatles
4. Linkin Park
5. Red Hot Chili Peppers
6. Panic! A The Disco
7. Metallica
8. Arctic Monkeys
9. Queen
10. Fall Out Boy
11. Green Day
12. AC/DC
13. Pink Floyd
14. Blink-182
15. Paramore
16. Guns N’ Roses
17. Nirvana
18. The Rolling Stones
19. The 1975
