X96’s Top 50 Songs of 2019

What a year? Right? Sure, that’s easy to say now that it’s over but this year Salt Lake and Utah saw more concerts, more festivals, and more events than ever before.  Those of us who have grown up or lived here for more than 5 or 10 years can certainly see the changes our city is making. The best part is because of the evolution of our city a lot of these bands are frequently touring here.

Now we aren’t calling this list the top rock songs of 2019 (Billboard magazine already made that mistake) or the top 50 alternative songs of 2019. What does that even mean anymore? No this is X96’s Top 50 Songs of 2019. The list is made of songs we played the most, what records you told us you liked the most, local sales charts, and requests. And yes, some of these songs were released in 2018, but never really made it big until 2019.
