AP.net Artist Power Rankings (February 24th)

Posted by: Jason Tate (02/24/12)
Ohhh, Friday. I am completely in this mood right now. I'm starving, but promised myself I'd get this written up before I got to go eat lunch. So, here we go - let's get these power rankings out the door so I can get some foods. I ran out of time last week to get one of these posted, so I went back into last week a little as well to put this together.

1) fun.
NoteThey released their new album and were all over the website this week. The band seems to be getting a whole lot of attention from our community, and the mainstream as well. Fuck yea, fun!

2) Brand New
NoteOne interview. One great way to start the week. And all this time I thought it was exclusively revealed that the band was breaking up. Can't wait to see what the guys come up with next. And they're playing Bamboozle.

3) Less Than Jake
NoteThe band released an EP, we streamed a tune, and they're playing Bamoozle too. Bam.

4) Chris Brown / Rihanna
NoteFuck this guy.

5) Thrice
NoteThe band announced their final tour routing, and is letting fans pick the set list. So bittersweet.

6) The Summer Set
NoteMost fucked up video, or most fucked up video?

7) The Used
NoteNew song stream, band shits on Warner Bros.

8) jonny CRAIG
NoteTrain. Wreck.

9) Skrillex
NoteBetween ETID commenting on him, and his love life hitting the web, and a new video - pretty big week for the dubstep super-star.

10) Streetlight Manifesto
NoteThey're boycotting themselves as a giant EFU to Victory Records.


Good times, eh? What did you enjoy this week on the website? Fun. week seemed to be in full effect. Ok, now I must go get some food -- then I'll be back to do posts of the week!

Jason, what do you mean by "...all this time I thought it was exclusively revealed that [Brand New] was breaking up"?
