NEW FEATURE! Hard Rock Monthly – February 2023

  • All

 

For years, Hard Rock Daddy provided the Octane Big ‘Uns Countdown and HRD Radio Report on a weekly basis. That stopped due to unforeseen circumstances (see Explaining Hard Rock Daddy’s Radio Silence in 2022). Rather than going back to the old way of doing things, HRD is making a change for a few reasons…

The Octane Big ‘Uns Countdown and weekly Mediabase Active Rock Charts don’t change much from week to week. This made a lot of the reporting basically redundant, and quite frankly, not that interesting. It also took up a lot of time to produce each week. That time is better spent creating a broader look at the trends on a monthly basis. This new system will be unique to Hard Rock Daddy and not something that anyone can put together on their own. It also provides an opportunity to expand the offerings on a monthly basis to include hard rock music from around the world. There is a lot of great music that never gets any airplay in the United States. Those songs have always been featured on HRD’s year end list. Now, they will have a regular platform.

If you are a fan of the Top 100 Hard Rock Songs of 2022 (and the previous year’s lists), then this new format should appeal to you. That expansion will be starting in the coming month or so. For the debut of Hard Rock Monthly, only a trends report for the Octane Big ‘Uns Countdown and Mediabase Active Rock Chart will be provided.

As we move forward, we will not only feature these charts and songs from around the world, but also reviews, interviews, contributions from other writers and from musicians themselves. Ultimately, this monthly feature will be more comprehensive and interesting than the weekly columns of the past.
