If anyone is interested, these are the top 5 country songs from the Top 1000.

5. Eric Church "Springsteen"
4. Dolly Parton "I Will Always Love You"
3. Johnny Cash "Folsum Prison Blues"
2. Patsy Cline "Crazy"
1. Garth Brooks "Friends In Low Places"

I'm no country fan. I've bought two country CDs in my life. And one was just in case it ever went up in value (never actually listened to it). But I happened to catch the tail end of this countdown.

I own #1 & #3 (good tunes). That's not my favourite Cash song or even my second or third (Ring of Fire, then I Walk The Line the Sunday Morning Coming Down) but a good one none the less. #4 is a bad song no matter who sings it. And what is a country song being about Bruce Springsteen?

Listening to some of the Alt Songs Top 1000 earlier today and one promo described the songs as "too out-there for the mainstream" - yet many of the songs were on the Hot 100.

I was thinking, it would be cool to have a list of the songs that reached the top 10 on the Alt Songs Chart (aka Modern Rock Chart) but DIDN'T chart on the Hot 100.

I had a chance to see Primus but didn't do it. They headlined Locobazooka '99 (I mentioned that I went to that show in my 333 songs thread earlier today), but with the amount of people at that show, it would've been over an hour to watch them, 2 hours just to get out of the parking lot and I had a long drive after that. I was already exhausted from Machine Head, Drain STH, Static X, Slipknot, Staind, Coal Chamber and a bunch more (I probably got there around noon) - so I didn't think I had it in me to go another 4+ hours.

Hard Rock 1000 is up to #158 (Slaughter "Up All Night", preceded by Ozzy "No More Tears", Volbeat "A Warrior's Call", Def Leppard "Animal" and ACDC "TNT"). So I'm thinking they'll hit #1 some time tomorrow while I'm in bed, like between 2-5am maybe?

Better question is what is it doing at Number Fucking 5 all-time?!?!?! Off the top of my head I can list at least 20-30 other songs that belong there.
