Shinedown, Seether + Breaking Benjamin Lead ‘NOW That’s What I Call Rock!’ Compilation

Universal Music Group / Sony Music Entertainment

Remember the days of making mixtapes of your favorite radio songs? For years, the “NOW That’s What I Call …” compilation series has solidly taken the idea of picking and choosing some top pop songs of the day and making a series of compilations for pop music fans. Now, they’re branching out and doing the same for the rock lovers out there. The first NOW That’s What I Call Rock! compilation released in the U.S. is set to drop Jan. 22.

While it does feature a number of alternative rock acts thrown into the mix, rock radio fans will be happy to see such songs as Shinedown‘s “Cut the Cord,” Seether‘s “Words as Weapons” and Breaking Benjamin‘s “Failure” leading the way.

You’ll also get rock radio hits from Chris Cornell (“Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart”), Red Sun Rising (“The Otherside”), Bring Me the Horizon (“Throne”), Royal Blood (“Little Monster”), Cage the Elephant (“Mess Around”), The Struts (“Could Have Been Me”) and Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats (“S.O.B.”).

In addition, the NOW series has been known for delivering “What’s Next” bonus tracks, spotlighting up and coming acts. The three for this compilation include Failure Anthem‘s “Paralyzed,” Devour the Day‘s “Lightning in the Sky” and Wolf Alice’s “Bros,” the latter of which leans more alternative. See the full track listing below.

NOW That’s What I Call Rock will be a joint venture between Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment. Look for the compilation in stores Jan. 22.
