Each week*, I check out the Billboard Hot Rock Songs chart, and then I rearrange the top 25 based on my estimation of their quality. I used to rank all of the top 25, now I just rank the cream of the crop.

*This will be my last Billboard Hot Rock Songs re-ranking post, at least for the foreseeable future, as these posts have become a bit too same-old, same-old for my tastes. But I will continue to scan the charts each week, and I might occasionally write down some reactions should the spirit move me.
