UK Chart Roundup: You Can Just Go Suck Ryan Tedder's Dick

Here's the thing about OneRepublic...they're always going to come out of the blue, way after the fact, and eke out a hit from an album that was released months, maybe years, prior. Just when you think the band is over or have forgotten they ever existed, they'll spring up from ashes like Train or Matchbox Twenty or Nickelback and be all like, "No, fuckers — we're not going anywhere, and here's another hit you can suck on."

Somebody out there is buying this stuff. "Counting Stars" is #2 now in the UK. Think about that each and every day of your lives.

The UK Top 10:

1. "Roar" - Katy Perry *2 weeks*
2. "Counting Stars" - OneRepublic
3. "Burn" - Ellie Goulding
4. "Wake Me Up" - Avicii
5. "Hold On, We're Going Home" - Drake
6. "Sonnentanz (Sun Don't Shine)" - Klankarussell feat. Will Heard
7. "Summertime Sadness" - Lana Del Rey vs. Cedric Gervais
8. "We Can't Stop" - Miley Cyrus
9. "Same Love" - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Mary Lambert
10. "Applause" - Lady Gaga

    I will continue to be a One Republic stan, and not just because they're from Colorado. Despite what Tedder does producing other artists, he develops a distinct sound for his own band, and it's not the immediate in your face hook pop like Katy Perry seems to churn out. If "Burning Bridges" is the next single, brace yourself for a more immediate hit.

    John, when I was in Denver last summer, I hit up some gay bar/club thing with a couple friends who said that Ryan Tedder comes in and DJs there sometimes. I forget what it was called, but some senior citizen tried to pick me up. If only he had said there would be money in exchange...
