Alternative Songs is a record chart published by the music industry magazine Billboard that ranks the most-played songs on American modern rock radio stations. Introduced in September 1988,[1] the chart is based on electronically-monitored airplay data compiled by Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems from approximately 80 national rock radio stations.[2] Songs are ranked by a calculation of their total number of radio spins per week and their "audience impression", which is based upon exact times of airplay and each station's Arbitron listener data.[2] The first number-one single of the 2020s on the Alternative Songs chart was "Orphans" by English rock band Coldplay.
