Billboard Alternative Songs #1 since 1988 to 2010

Siouxsie: dark lady, first #1

Alternative Songs is a Billboard chart created in 1988, based solely on the airplay of Modern Rock U.S. radios. Here it's a playlist that features all the #1 - since 1988 to modern days - available on Spotify (I found the list on Wikipedia). From R.E.M., XTC and Replacements to the grunge heroes, from nu-metal to White Stripes, Muse and the extreme fragmentation of the contemporary era... a 241-songs voyage in that strange land where mainstream and alternative collide. A little big history of last 20-years modern (american-oriented) rock and a good soundtrack for your next summer car rides... Pity that Red Hot Chili Peppers (11 songs) are not available...

P.S. I think I will keep it as an active playlist. That means I will update it periodically with new #1s.

Stay in touch with the new playlists!
