Maybe Rock Isn’t Dead After All

Perhaps claims that rock is dead are premature as the Billboard charts this week are topped by bands who definitely know how to rock. Yes, the soundtrack to A Star Is Born sits at number 1 and a collaborative rap album is right behind it, but coming in at number 3 is Greta Van Fleet’s long-awaited debut Anthem of the Peaceful Army.
And while a record from Disturbed normally goes straight to the top, their latest release, Evolution, still made the Billboard 200 at number 4.

More importantly, two rock albums are in the Top 5 for the first time since July.
