300+ Metal/Hard Rock Bands Ranked by Their Spotify Listeners For The Last Month

Posted by on January 8, 2020 at 5:02 pm

Another month and more bands added to the list! Last year, we began tracking how many monthly listeners hard rock and heavy metal artists have been getting on Spotify. Where did we get this data? It's all publicly available on artists' pages.

Please note, this is not an exact science, the rankings should not be taken as fact, as these are just ranking relative to the other artists we chose for this study. Meaning, there could be artists that may not have been listed who have more listens. We try to keep the list as accurate as possible, so if you know an artist missing, please mention it in the comments and we'll add it for next month.

Here are the readings for the last 30 days. You can see our previous standings here.

Based on comparisons of the top artists from last month, it looks like both rock and metal saw a bump in listens compared to last month. How do these numbers look to you?
