Rock anthems vanishing from chart

Music Week magazine said just five of the 100 best-selling singles of the year so far were classed as rock, led by Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’.

That song was first released in 1981 and has recently enjoyed renewed popularity after being covered on the TV show Glee.

The only other hits in the top 100 list to be classed as rock by the OCC were two tracks by singer-songwriter Florence and the Machine, one by folk band Mumford And Sons and one by dance act Pendulum.
