There we have it! As you can see, it’s quite the mix – a bunch of old classics and new hotnesses, upbeat floorfillers, headbangers and introspective songs alike. So, if these seasonal charts tell us anything, the spirit of rock held true over Christmas, as I’m sure it will throughout the rest of 2016. Rock on!
