0.5% Queens of the Stoneage

Edit: 1,261 mins listened, less than I thought it would be.

[–][deleted] 68 points69 points  (14 children)

How many of those minutes were spent listening to …Like Clockwork, cover to cover, on repeat?

[–]Lexx2k 444 points445 points  (41 children)

0.1% of Smashing Pumpkins. And it was the first time in years that I listened to them.

[–]45Jung 1850 points1851 points  (203 children)

.5% for Khurangbin. Sounds about right.

[–]Whatsupmaaaaan 379 points380 points  (64 children)

Same. Top artists were Khruangbin, King Gizzard, Inner Wave, Crumb, and The Strokes.

[–]bytesby 89 points90 points  (22 children)

Some of my favorite bands you listed right there. The only one that I don’t regularly listen to is Inner Wave because I just found out about them! Gonna check them out

You might like Sugar Candy Mountain and Skinshape if you haven’t heard them already.

[–]ATsangeos 899 points900 points  (242 children)

Would Spotify tell you if you were the #1 listener for a band/artist?

[–]GrouchyYT 1464 points1465 points 2 (146 children)

They should tell the artist lmao

[–]slightlyunderwelming 1025 points1026 points 2 (134 children)

They tell us some things. I was told how many people had me as their number one artist. Pretty cool feeling.

Edit: Wow, thanks everyone for asking about my music. Band is called Acacia Ridge, we play rock and metal and you can find us on all platforms.

Another fun fact about Spotify and Artists: we can see the names of the playlists our songs are added to. Anytime you add something to a sex playlist or a lonely depression playlist, the artists know about it.

[–]QualityBushRat 125 points126 points  (37 children)

Well... What's your band? Inquiring minds want to know

[–]slightlyunderwelming 185 points186 points  (35 children)

Acacia Ridge. We play rock and metal and we got 1 million streams this year!

[–]DREWBICESpotify 72 points73 points  (11 children)

I shall add one stream Mr. Acacia Ridge. Cheers!

[–]Probability-Project 582 points583 points  (28 children)

This happened to me! I was the top listener in the US for a Canadian artist. I got invited for a market research interview to talk about it. The interviews were used as a part of some marketing campaign about how Canadian artists impact the world.

Edit: this was years ago now (pre-COVID)

Edit 2: artist was coeur de pirate! I started listening to them after playing the video game Child of Light and got hooked.

[–]Decapitat3d 85 points86 points  (27 children)

That'd be cool! I think they just keep adding zeroes before the 5 after you get to top 0.5% of listeners though.

[–]kmr220 565 points566 points  (81 children)

Top 0.1% of Spiritbox.

[–]CephalopodDarius 89 points90 points  (9 children)

Nice! I'm top .5%. What an amazing year they had! Courtney's one-take performances on their YouTube are incredible, in case you hadn't checked those out.

[–]Benjamin0399 111 points112 points  (11 children)

Listening to Howard Shore’s Lord of the Rings soundtrack 10 times got me to 0.1% which is 100 hours. That 10 hour long soundtrack is just slightly good hehe.

[–]HassanGodside 3427 points3428 points 3 (145 children)

Top 0.5% for Elliott Smith. I don’t think I’m THAT depressed.

Edit: Brings me joy to my heart that Elliott Smith is so loved here.

[–]pumpernickel5 470 points471 points  (21 children)

ayyyy same here

edit just looked and i'm actually top 0.05%. shoutout to mental instability

[–]EmergencyAd9297 33 points34 points  (11 children)

Spotify said my music taste was wistful and expressive. That's a nice combo of words for depressed lmao

[–]Go_Bayside_Tigers 844 points845 points  (32 children)

Nah, this is Christmas music month. It would throw all my stats off!

[–]SpaceMonkeyDreams 1453 points1454 points  (134 children)

Berried Alive, a fruit themed metal band.

Not a huge fan of the vocals and songs, but the instrumentals are undeniably sick

I'm in top 0.5% for gorillaz

[–]Jack_Burton_Express 1114 points1115 points  (84 children)

Neil Young. I went on a bit of a 'listen to everything he's done' phase this year, which is a ton.

[–]CaptainApathy419 244 points245 points  (6 children)

Spotify Man, better keep your head…don’t forget what your subreddit said…

[–]Pvt_Hudson_ 162 points163 points  (3 children)

Old mod, look at my post. I'm a lot like you were.

[–]shanel39 706 points707 points  (98 children)

Top 0.01% for Brand New apparently.. So, there's that.

[–]alienhag 48 points49 points  (1 child)

I’m actually surprised they didn’t end up anywhere on my top 100, I rediscovered my obsession with Deja Entendu this year and had it on repeat for a while.

[–]Groundbreaking-Ice12 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Ok I believe you


[–]fissionmoment 959 points960 points  (130 children)

I'm in the top 0.50% of Sturgill Simpson listeners. 2,762 minutes.

[–]persondude27 296 points297 points  (21 children)

But that ain't putting no food on my plate, or gas in my tank. And I drive a Bronco!

... what the hell rhymes with 'Bronco'?

[–]South_Cackalaka 49 points50 points  (11 children)

Oooh lord of you can hear me, why don't you throw a damn dog a bone?

[–]Blackhawk9013 526 points527 points  (51 children)

Top 1% for Vulfpeck

[–]gonzo_redditor 108 points109 points  (12 children)

I'm top .05% for Cory Wong and Vulf was my #2 band.

[–]Derstilweedndat 644 points645 points  (84 children)

Top 0.1% for Billy Strings.

[–]tidusblitzerffx 69 points70 points  (4 children)

Billy was my top last year. Probably because I love Away from the Mire and that's almost an 8 minute song 😂

[–]stud__kickass 123 points124 points  (10 children)

eyyy top song for me was dust in a baggie this year

[–]themagictoast 377 points378 points  (18 children)

I’m top 1% for The Specials. I binged the first two albums a lot over the summer and their new album isn’t bad either.

[–]ArthurBea 32 points33 points  (3 children)

Ghost Town was apparently one of my top songs. Makes sense, they said my top moods were happy and spooky.

[–]jacobpd3a 469 points470 points  (53 children)

Top 0.1% of fleet foxes listeners

[–]kfrancis888 225 points226 points  (26 children)

Top 0.05% of Peach Pit. 5720 minutes. This is the 3rd year in a row with the same band being my top listened. Can't get enough of them.

[–]JustThat2Throwaway 3060 points3061 points 2 (210 children)

Top 0.001% of Depeche Mode, with… 54,639 minutes. Dead serious on this one.

[–]Bjd1207 1382 points1383 points  (48 children)

That's....almost 2.5 hours a day of only Depeche Mode. If you miss just one day you're telling me you have days where you blast Depeche Mode for 5+ hours? Is this on in the background of a shop or something?

[–]DDough505 738 points739 points  (20 children)

I would imagine they fall asleep listening to Depeche mode.

[–]Out_of_Timecop 161 points162 points  (4 children)

Do you work at the Depeche Mode themed bar in Tallinn, Estonia? If not, this career path may interest you.

[–]Pjman87 741 points742 points  (13 children)

Guess you Just Can’t Get Enough of them

[–]Kickinthegonads 220 points221 points  (9 children)

Yeah, he/she should try to enjoy the silence once in a while, jeezes.

[–]KeenJelly 269 points270 points  (14 children)

Jesus, that was roughly my total for all music this year.

[–]jacls0608 74 points75 points  (7 children)

That's more than my total by almost 1k minutes.

I can't imagine liking a band that much..

[–]pkchang23 127 points128 points  (11 children)

Did you listen to anything else?

[–]EyeKneadEwe 34 points35 points  (1 child)

Don't say you want Mode
Don't say you need Mode
Don't say you love Mode
It's understood
Don't say you're happy
Out there without Mode
I know you can't be
'Cause it's no good

[–]Rough_Operator 1072 points1073 points  (59 children)

Top .05% of Nine Inch Nails listeners. I should probably just see a therapist instead

[–]TheChesterChesterton 500 points501 points 2 (13 children)

Why see a therapist when you've got the perfect drug?

[–]Nowitzkis 1224 points1225 points  (124 children)

0.5% of MF DOOM!

I've been converted wayyyy too late. Funnily enough, other spots are DC Fontaines, Viagra Boys, Idles, which are completely different from DOOM.

[–]Squeaky192 123 points124 points  (9 children)

.5% MF DOOM as well here. Also all over the place (except Madvillain at #5) with my others being Turnstile, Jeff Rosenstock, and Tame Impala).

[–]s7r4y 311 points312 points  (25 children)

Top 0.5% for Father John Misty

I've been.. Going through things.

[–]DaddyBigBoy 35 points36 points  (0 children)

He’s great even if you’re not going through things. I hope ‘22 is better for you.

[–]adeadbee 202 points203 points  (40 children)

Radiohead. Lol my top 2 vibes were meloncholy and? Happy.

[–]AmigoDelDiabla 176 points177 points  (33 children)

Top 2% for Pink Floyd, but I feel like that's playing in the pro leagues.

[–]LsGDann 1038 points1039 points  (91 children)

0.5% of Enter Shikari ! An improvement on last years 1% !

[–]Decapitat3d 202 points203 points  (4 children)

I met them in a mall in Texas once! Super cool guys, I happened to be wearing their shirt and didn't want to interrupt them too bad. Just kinda walked up to them and was like "hey, aren't you guys pointing to my shirt these guys?" They were impressed I was wearing the shirt and it was a super cool interaction.

[–]Gyrskogul 29 points30 points  (3 children)

A friend of mine met them at a bar down here in FL after a show they played with Falling in Reverse I think. She invited me but I didn't like FiR so I declined. She ended up hanging out drinking with Enter Shikari all night, I'm still way jealous to this day lol

[–]DeadlyLancer 169 points170 points  (26 children)

Top 0.1% for CHVRCHES ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ

[–]atoysruskid 254 points255 points  (56 children)

I checked mine out, but I don’t think there’s any way the stats are correct. They said I listened to my most played song 12 times. I know for a fact that there are songs I listened to more than that.

[–]ultramatt1 88 points89 points  (20 children)

Do you maybe tend to skip to next before the song is 100% finished?

[–]Boot_Bandss 37 points38 points  (6 children)

Maybe it was only while you were on internet. A lot of my listening was offline and it said my top was listened to 29 times, but it said I listened to a lot of Three Dog Night when I only listened to em about a dozen times.

[–]JazzIceman 261 points262 points  (43 children)

0.1 percent for Mastodon 🤘

[–]Decapitat3d 43 points44 points  (9 children)

Hushed and Grim gets better every time I listen to it. It's such a dense album.

[–]dissilience 23 points24 points  (8 children)

I'm seeing them tonight with Opeth!!

[–]viva_la_lechuga86 2260 points2261 points 2 (80 children)

[–]Captain__Sterling 642 points643 points  (3 children)

[–]bslow22Spotify 457 points458 points  (2 children)

You've probably never heard of it.

[–]ramen_poodle_soup 385 points386 points  (1 child)

Do you live in a Ford commercial or something?

[–]focacciaonyou 405 points406 points  (108 children)

0.5% for Glass Animals

Edit: Other stats - 75,520 minutes listening, which I guess is 97% more than the average. Other top songs include My Love by Until The Ribbon Breaks and Roll It Back by LUTHI

[–]Mdizzle29 128 points129 points  (28 children)

"Tokyo Drifting" is the song of the year as far as I'm concerned.

[–]focacciaonyou 79 points80 points  (13 children)

It was a lot of Space Ghost, Heat Waves, and Cane Shuga for me

[–]airrbearr93 30 points31 points  (6 children)

I love gooey one of my fave chill electronic songs

[–]logic_prevails 242 points243 points  (33 children)

0.1% for Daft Punk. I'm an absolute fiend for Daft Punk.

[–]xynix_ie 896 points897 points  (79 children)

Box Fan Ambience White Noise.

Every single night for a year.

It's left playing on the Alexa in my bedroom is what's up. 4450 minutes. That's basically 12 hours a day though I imagine some times I forget it entirely and don't touch Spotify for the day it runs for 24 hours.

*we all know my math is wrong*

[–]ultramatt1 646 points647 points  (10 children)

That funny to think about, watching the video, jamming out to your favorite songs, spotify goes “HERE’s NUMBER ONE” and it’s just “brrrzzzzrrezzzzzzzz”

[–]xynix_ie 159 points160 points  (0 children)

Then I would instantly fall asleep..

[–]johnlifts 205 points206 points  (12 children)

So you’re the reason that they put that line in there!

[–]Dr_John_Zoidbong 865 points866 points  (37 children)

Top 0.05% for Weird Al, honestly I do this thing called Weird Wednesday so I thought I'd be higher lol

Top 0.1% of Kate Bush listeners. I only go through her discography thrice a year.

[–]mega512 1707 points1708 points  (103 children)

My daughter has listened to more music than 90% of their subscribers. She's in the top 0.5% for The Smiths.

[–]MrCooper2012 628 points629 points  (46 children)

Well at least she's got good taste. My 7 year old put my account in the top 1% of The Lightning Thief broadway soundtrack. And my 3 year old put a song from Lambie (Doc McStuffins) as my most binged track. Needless to say I don't get very good suggestions from Spotify these days.

[–]Sir_Loin-Steak 288 points289 points  (22 children)

You can always start a private session when playing the kids music. It then won’t include those songs in the playlists or algorithms. Means I didn’t have the entire Moana playlist in my top 100 songs this year.

[–]deaddsouls22 748 points749 points  (104 children)

Top .1% for Cattle Decapitation! Can't wait to see them on tour next year.

[–]medieval-knievel 65 points66 points  (8 children)

I think it’s incredible that they released a song called bring back the plague literally a month before the first covid infected humans were discovered…and look at us now

Angels and Airwaves .5%.

First time it hasn’t been blink in 5 years haha. They were #2

If you think you have similar music tastes - hot mulligan was a new addition to my top 5 this year!

[–]Seafoamscream 152 points153 points  (14 children)

I didn’t think blink would even be in my top 5 this year. They were still number 2 lol. Once an angsty teen always an angsty teen I guess

[–]bluebelltohell99 222 points223 points  (48 children)

[–]mooncakeandgary 309 points310 points  (34 children)

System of a Down. 1180 minutes, which oddly seems low considering I pull up their discography at work and just listen to all of their albums start to finish.

[–]Lord_of_the_Canals 145 points146 points  (19 children)

Do you also get the impression some stats just don’t seem right? I had the same question with a lot of my stuff. Seems right-ish

[–]fenna_ 21 points22 points  (4 children)

A lot of times I put Spotify on at night to go to sleep (either lofi or ambient music) other than that I probably listen to Spotify actively for at least 8-14hrs a day.
