FearlessRiOT’s Top 20 Songs of the Week! [2/12/16]

Stitched Up Heart frontwoman Mixi is featured in a six-page spread in the latest issue of Tattoo Magazine, putting her wide array of tattoos on full display. In addition to that, she also appears in Revolver Magazine’s (admittedly controversial) yearly women in hard rock and heavy metal issueSeems like a good time for her and the band, who are also spending a second week in a row at #1 on the FearlessRiOT Top 20 Countdown. Right behind them at #2 are Fall Out Boy and Demi Lovato with “Irresistible”; meanwhile, twenty one pilots sits at #3 with “Stressed Out”. Rounding out the Top 5 are Pop Evil’s “Footsteps (Go Higher)” and Halestorm’s “I Am The Fire”, once again resulting in an all rock/alternative Top 5. Elsewhere on the countdown, Tinashe jumps into the Top 10, Rihanna & Drake have the biggest jump, The Struts have the biggest dropper, and we have two countdown debuts from CFO$ (current entrance theme composers for WWE) and JoJo.
