This week, Alt Nation decided to change the Alt-18 and condense it to down to the just 8 songs. Personally, I am not a fan, but we will see how it goes. With all the “One and Done” songs this past year, it kind of makes sense. Though I do feel the change was most likely a cost-cutting decision.
In any case, here are the results for the very first Alt-8 Countdown for week 45 of 2017, featuring the top 8 songs requested and/or voted by listeners of Alt Nation on SiriusXM. This week’s countdown was hosted by Madison (@radiomadison).
