VERGE PICKS: TOP 10 ROCK SONGS OF 2018

We’ve seen the return of some of our favourite bands this year and we couldn’t wait to break down our top 10 favourite Rock songs of 2018! This list of Rock superstars is sure to get any party started, and is also an awesome look down this year’s memory lane!

LOVELYTHEBAND – “BROKEN”

Lovelytheband return with a brilliant album Finding It Hard To Smile and our favourite track of theirs this year is sandwiched inside. These guys know how to make a great record and we admit to having quite a few shower concerts with this one!

TWENTY ONE PILOTS – “JUMPSUIT” 

Twenty One Pilots never disappoint and will always remain one of our faves. “Jumpsuit” has an incredible energy that will keep us all going throughout the Christmas/New Year celebrations- and can even be added to our gym playlists as we work off all those mince pies.

GORILLAZ – “HUMILITY”

The legendary Gorillaz came back with a bang this year with their latest project The Now Now. It’s a project full of fun, creativity and a variation of styles, just what you’d expect and need. It’s just the right anthem to get the party going and to party along to this holiday season!

WEEZER – “CAN’T KNOCK THE HUSTLE”

Weezer had 2018 in the bag with “Can’t Knock The Hustle”, an uplifting and energetic single that left us all having it on repeat since it’s release. These guys have always got it covered when it comes to creating anthems, and we’ll be sure to add this to our festivities playlists!

THE 1975 – “IT’S NOT LIVING (IF IT’S NOT WITH YOU)” 

We all love a bit of The 1975, their indie-tactic sound has us in the best mood constantly! They never stop impressing us with their fresh sounds, they know just what we need when we need it! How can we not boogie along to this over the holidays? It’s impossible!

MUSE – “THOUGHT CONTAGION”

When Muse release a project the world stops and listens. If you’re in to new sounds, crazy vibes and a fresh unique perspective on music as a whole, “Thought Contagion” is right up your street. The album is incredible and we’re guilty of over playing it already, so we encourage you to do the same!

ARCTIC MONKEYS – “FOUR OUT OF FIVE” 

Arctic Monkeys always keep a smile on our faces and are an office must have for us here at Verge. Their latest project Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino is nothing shy of brilliant. They never miss a beat with creating new sounds and this is nothing short of amazing!

IMAGINE DRAGONS – “NATURAL”

Imagine Dragons have to be one of the world’s favourite bands. These four guys have opened up a brilliant world of huge vocals, wicked drops and an incredible amount of energy! It’s almost impossible to not listen to their single “Natural” and not stomp along.

FLORENCE + THE MACHINE – “HUNGER” 

It’s almost impossible to not recognise Florence + The Machine – Florence’s vocals are so wonderfully distinctive it’s become a necessity to have her in all of our playlists constantly. “Hunger” brings the best of what we love about Florence + The Machine but adds some brand new flare and attitude that we are all here for!

BRING ME THE HORIZON – “WONDERFUL LIFE” 

Bring Me The Horizon are not for the faint hearted but they capture hearts for a living. We loved “Wonderful Life” and are desperate for some new tunes, so we hope to hear them next year! If you’re in need of waking up from that food coma, play this track and watch the energy in the room rise!
