Kerrang! launches rock chart

By | Published on Tuesday 17 April 2012


Kerrang! is teaming up with the Official Charts Company to launch it’s very own rock chart taking in sales data, and TV and radio airplay. The chart will then be aired on the Kerrang! TV and radio stations, and published in the magazine and on the website. So, very multimedia.

Says Dave Young, Director Of Programming at Kerrang! TV: “The Official Kerrang! Rock Chart cements Kerrang!’s position as the UK’s bible for rock music, at last giving both rock fanatics and the music industry a long-missing essential barometer of what’s hot on the scene”.

He continued: “The new chart is another perfect example of how Kerrang! consistently works as multiplatform media brand, sharing and amplifying creative ideas and then relaying them to millions of passionate followers accessing those ideas ‘anytime-anyplace’. In that spirit we look forward to marching onto the Kerrang! Awards – it’s going to be a noisy summer!”
