    Has there been any explanation for why it is just 8 and not 18?

    No, but two weeks in we have chaos going on.

    it’s awesome that sir sly is no.1 on the alt 18 for a 3rd straight week.

    Am I the only one who thinks that “Best Friend” is one of the worst songs AltNation has played in a long time? It’s kinda stretching the definition of alt-rock.
