A lot of volatility recently - so thought this would be fun to look at.
8 songs in chart history have fallen completely off the chart from the top 10 and will be reflected below Only one was not due to the death of the artist or the end of Christmas

I don't know if anything on here will be as iconic as Soko's 9 to OUT
Never heard of it, what happened?
”We Might Be Dead Tomorrow” by Soko debuted at 9 on the Hot 100 due to this viral video - youtu.be/IpbDHxCV29A
It’s debut was fueled ~95% by streams, so when the video plummeted in views the next week, it went 9-X on the H100 and 1-42 on Streaming Songs. It barely missed a second week on the Hot 100, as it was within striking distance of #100 (Disclosure & Sam Smith’s “Latch”).
YouTube made the Hot 100 circa early 2010s super volatile.

^Promotional singles, album bombs songs, highly frontloaded singles (hyped up), songs re-entering due to the artist performing it, songs performed in competitions or reality shows and holiday songs cover a fair amount of the songs listed.
As noted above, 6ix9ine and Nicki Minaj's "Trollz" free falls from No. 1 on the Hot 100, where it debuted a week ago, to No. 34. It slides 1-7 on Digital Song Sales (9,000, down 92%) and 3-18 on Streaming Songs (13.8 million, down 62%), although it gains by 97% to 2.3 million in radio reach. The song sets the record for the steepest drop from No. 1 to another rank in the Hot 100's nearly 62-year history, with its 1-34 tumble doubling that of the prior record-holder, The Weeknd's "Heartless," which fell 1-17 on the Dec. 21, 2019-chart.
As for the biggest overall drop from No. 1, Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" disappeared from the chart entirely after it logged its third week on top on Jan. 4, 2020; of course, the departure was essentially owed to the end of the holiday season, as all 25 Yuletide titles on the chart that week were no longer on the Jan. 11 ranking. ("Worth it haaa another record!" Carey joked on Twitter in response to Billboard.)
From #9 We Might Be Dead By Tomorrow, Soko OUT *Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree, Brends Lee OUT Silly Watch, Lil Uzi Vert 52 Fearless, Taylor Swift 38 Groovin', The Rascals 38 The Time (Dirty Bit), The Black Eyed Peas 36 Waiting For A Girl Like You, Foreigner 36 Back Stabbers, The O'Jays 35 I Can't Help Myself, Four Tops 35 Whenever I Call You "Friend", Kenny Loggins 35 Silly Love Songs, Paul McCartney 34 Ballroom Blitz, Sweet 33 Glamorous, Fergie Featuring Ludacris 33 The Best Of Times, Styx 33
Glamorous? Did they remove the song from iTunes or something?
So TROLLZ ties Linkin Park's "New Divide" for the biggest drop ever within the top 40 (33 positions). Casey Kasem would have had a field day with that. I'm pretty sure the biggest jump is (and may always be) "Boom Boom Pow", when it shot 39-1.
yes - this was before it went to #1, obviously bounced back
Thanks. I remember it now. Someone must make a thread for songs with the weirdest chart run on Hot 100!!!
Yeah I remember when that happened, it was a strange occurrence indeed. I don't remember exactly why they removed it from iTunes, but my guess is they tried to increase album sales, and either it didn't work, or it served its purpose so they brought it back.
