Section 3: The Airplay chart

Alice In Chains are a good example of the travesty of the ‘90s. A lot of these alternative bands didn’t release actual singles and therefore weren’t eligible for the Hot 100, only the airplay charts. So you’ll see a lot of songs in here that you know from airplay but mainly through MTV videos – like both “No Excuses” and “Heaven Beside You.”

Dave Steed is all about music; 80's and metal to be exact. His iPod will shuffle from Culture Club to Slayer and he won't blink an eye. He's never heard Astral Weeks but thinks "Dazzey Duks" by Duice is the bomb. It's an odd little corner of the world he lives in.
