Over 50 years after we invented the Singles Chart, we're doing it all over again...
NME are teaming up with MTV2 to launch the first daily alternative music chart show.
Starting on Sunday, August 3, the ‘NME Chart Show on MTV2’, will be broadcast every day at 7pm. Hosted by Zane Lowe, the show will mix up a daily dose of breaking music news and exclusive videos.
Voted for by you, it will be the antithesis of the official UK pop singles chart and will provide relief on Sunday evenings when our weekly countdown goes head-to-head with the official UK pop singles chart.
“NME invented the original music charts so it’s totally appropriate that we should take them back in 2003 by introducing the definitive chart for fans of great music,” NME editor Conor McNicholas said. “Over many beers with our new friends at MTV2 we discovered we share a passion for brilliant bands and brilliant tunes now we want to get music fans involved. The NME Chart on MTV2 will be the weekly music chart that shouts loudest about what fans of real music are into. Get voting – let your voice be heard!”
As well of the chart, the show will also reveal the lingering hits, unexpected successes and one hit wonders. To vote for your favourite videos and songs, log on to the specially-created microsite at [url=]mtv2europes.com/nmechart.
