I'm okay with this. Funny how Gotye's song was on alt rock stations around Christmas time. Glee has a magical touch it seems.

Could this be the first time in a long time that one solid track took the place of another? haven't kept up with it too much, and there is plenty good in mainstream music, but it doesn't seem likely that we can have great back to back songs like this.

Objectively, it's the first time in a very long time that one rock song succeeded another on the charts.

I seen it while I was flicking through the channels. Let's just say I didn't stay there long... I guess the world really ending. Dick Clark is gone and good music is finally taking over.
