Billboard's all-time hard rock digital song leaders

Postby stevejazz » Wed Jun 12, 2019 12:58 pm

Listed below are the overall leaders in Billboard's hard-rock digital song charts from the first one in January 2010 through December 2018. I'm missing some charts from 2017, and several weeks each from 2014 and early 2015. The biggest difference from the rock charts is that these include more pre-2000 songs, thanks to groups like Queen, AC-DC, and Guns 'n Roses.
