Currently looks like it pulling about half a million views per day on YouTube. Does anyone know if views of their Tonight Show performance count as YouTube views for chart purposes? I would guess not, but wasn't sure. Hopefully it will keep a good clip going after the show and maybe a boost for the regular official video.

I usually just stream; if I want to support an artist I'll buy digital. I only grab a CD when I'm at a gig and a previously unfamiliar support act has impressed me. I've enough clutter; I don't need more CDs I'll just rip to MP3 and then never touch again. Physical music is a waste of time in this digital age.

Yes, I've also turned to streaming as well and I don't regret it.

How the hell are U2 supposed to compete with 253m views for a Taylor swift video?

They're not honestly. Streaming is going to be a major hindrance for them trying to chart.

For Alternative and AAA, yes. For Active Rock and Hot AC, pretty "meh".

That said, it's not too bad for a single that won't be promoted to radio until next Wednesday.

Really unsure what the bands strategy is with all this, they must know they will never compete with the teeny boppers out there, so what would they constitute to be a hit?
