Best Noise Music
ALLEN KOVAC’s BETTER NOISE MUSIC has been named the #1 Mainstream Rock Label of 2020, while for the first time in the history of the MEDIABASE Active Rock Chart, the same label has been #1 for three consecutive years. BETTER NOISE MUSIC not only maintained its #1 ranking, but the label also saw 34% growth, growing from 12% market share to 16.1% of all Active Rock airplay. FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH was also named the #1 Active Rock Artist of 2020.
The label achieved the record feat with two #1’s from FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, two chart toppers from BAD WOLVES and another from PAPA ROACH. Five other tracks made the Top 10, Mongolian rockers THE HU, groundbreaking country-rock band CORY MARKS, FROM ASHES TO NOW and FIRE FROM THE GODS.
BAD WOLVES’ two No. 1s this year made them the first group to have five No. 1 songs in a row at Active Rock. En route to another chart topper, their latest single “Learn To Walk Again” is spending its third week in the Top 10, joined this week by FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH’s “Living The Dream”.
ALLEN KOVAC commented, “BETTER NOISE MUSIC’s A&R is second to none, combining that with data science and fan engagement allows us to dig into when the data shows a track is working for listeners, and it is good for radio, streaming, artist and label.
The success of SVP/Promotion JACKIE KAJZER was recognized by BETTER NOISE COO STEVE KLINE, “JACKIE’s unrivaled work ethic and passion for developing artists make her the best in the business. We look forward to his impactful contribution to our marketing mix in 2021 as we continue to push the boundaries by breaking more new artists while expanding the growth and diversity of our established roster.
KAJZER added, “I’m so grateful to my rock radio friends for supporting our BETTER NOISE artists. I’m proud of the work we’ve done in developing artists and the diversity of our roster. Thanks again to Rock Radio for expanding the sound of the format with artists like THE HU, FIRE FROMTHE GODS, CORY MARKS, and of course, mainline artists like FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and PAPA ROADH.
