Shoulda-Been-Hits: The Modern Rock Tracks Era, Part 2

Pause & Play continues to dig deep into the Modern Rock Tracks era (1988-2009), searching for long-forgotten “hits,” ones that made a splash on Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks chart but never reached the pop Hot 100.

Welcome to our Part 2. File these greats under our Shoulda-Been-Hits list.

Click and hear for yourself. Better yet: Go to Spotify and follow our Shoulda-Been-Hits: The Spotify Playlist.
