Who’s The Hottest Band On The Internet? Coldplay, Says BBC SoundIndex

The BBC has been testing a new service called SoundIndext.gif, which lists the top 1,000 artists based on discussions crawled from Bebo, Las.fm, Google Groups,iTunes, MySpace and YouTube.

 

The top five bands according to SoundIndex right now are Coldplay, Rihanna, The Ting Tings, Duffy and Mariah Carey , but the index is refreshed every six hours.

 

This is somewhat similar to Songkick’s “Battle Of The Bands,” which we covered in March. Songkick uses different data - MySpace, Amazon and blogs - to determine rankings, and the resultst.gif are completely different.

 

SoundIndex also lets users sort by popular trackst.gif, search by artist, or create customized charts based on music preferences or filters by age range, sex or location. Results can also be limited to just one data source (such as Last.fm).

it's a GREAT little video! Even my fiance who isn't the biggest Coldplay fan in the world said "Damn! he's SO cool!" I think they should make the whole video like that. They've used Mark Romanek before for the Speed of Sound video.
