Blink 182's "She's Out Of Her Mind" (BMG) will be the new #1 next week at Modern Rock. Green Day's "Still Breathing" (Warner Bros.) rises to #2 and poised to be the next #1 song. The Lumineers' "Cleopatra" (Dualtone) is up over 200 spins and moves to #6. Rag 'n' Bone Man's "Human" (Columbia) rockets #25-17 and up over 300 spins.

Judah & The Lion's "Take It All Back" (Caroline) starts off 2017 as the #1 record in Modern Rock. New movers to the Top 10 while we were away on break included Coin's "Talk Too Much" (Columbia), Lumineers' "Cleopatra" (Dualtone) and Empire Of The Sun's "High And Low" (Capitol). Andrew McMahon's "Fire Escape" (Crush/Vanguard/Concord) segues inside the Top 15 at #14, and Bishop Briggs enters the Top 20 with "Wild Horses" (Island/Teleport).
It was this time last year The Strumbellas "Spirits" were introduced and became the first hit of 2016. This year I feel safe in saying it will be Rag 'n' Bone Man's "Human." The international smash already with 75 million views now Top 30 at Modern Rock will soon take off with iHeart's influential On The Verge starting next week. This one also has a feel for multiple formats in its future as well.
Many congrats goes out to Jacqueline, Chris, Marni and everyone at Caroline for going #1 with Judah & The Lion's "Take It All Back." It's a great accomplishment and it feels like they are just getting warmed up as we get going in 2017. The band embarks on two major tours and some TV coming up on Conan.
