I forgot to do this, but at least it was done before the next chart came out!
“Must Stop” - ONR f/ Sarah Barthel of Phantogram: This song is honestly a grower. Not bad at all tbh. 7/10
“forget me too” - Machine Gun Kelly & Halsey: The amount of MGK songs on alt right now is complete overkill. It’s like Kaplan is trying to kill his career or something. That being said, nice slice of 2000s pop punk. Kind of wish it was just Halsey because she just rocks this genre, but this is kind of like blink-182 + Paramore. Not bad at all. 7/10
“The Adults Are Talking” - The Strokes: Honestly, this week wasn’t bad at all for debuts but this is the clear star of the show. Absolute bop. I’m not sure what genre to classify this song as but that doesn’t really matter because these boys rock it. 9/10
“Another Hit of Showmanship” - The Struts & Albert Hammond Jr.: Am I the only one who finds it funny that The Struts made a song with the guitarist from The Strokes? Similar names lol. Anyway, this just limped its way onto the chart without a bullet but it’s pretty good! Glad it got to chart. 8/10

“Deep End” - Fousheé: Strange pick for alt (thanks Kaplan) but this isn’t bad actually. Compotent alt-R&B. 7/10
“Dancing in My Room” - 347aidan: The beat and instrumental aren’t bad but the vocals are. Aidan is only 17 so I can kind of excuse it. He kind of sounds like grandson if grandson was a teenager, which is kind of funny because they’re both Canadian and have a similar way of singing. 5/10

“Christmas Saves the Year” - twenty one pilots: The first holiday song to enter alt in 7 or 8 years. It’s actually better than LoC. It honestly doesn’t feel like the holiday season but it did get me festive for a sec. 7/10
“ESTELLA//“ - KennyHoopla f/ Travis Barker: Cool pop punk song but a little too short. 8/10
