10 Essential Rock Tracks From R&L 2019

As we all know R&L will not be taking place this summer (we’re still not over it either) but what better opportunity to look back at some of the best artists and tracks that have graced the R&L stage in past years.

All the tracks will be compiled into a growing Spotify playlist to give you the essential R&L playlist!

To kick things off we’re counting down 10 of the essential rock tracks from R&L 19 to keep you rocking out this summer.

10. Foo Fighters – The Pretender

Any essential rock track list wouldn’t be complete without a song from the rock titans Foo Fighters. ‘The Pretender’ is a classic that our grandchildren will probably still be singing along to!

9. Twenty One Pilots – Jumpsuit

Obviously, the duo of Twenty One Pilots after taking over the Main Stage in 2019. ‘Jumpsuit’ is probably their heaviest song yet and will always have us headbanging!

8. The 1975 – People

The 1975 definitely turned a few heads when they debuted ‘People’ at Reading 2019. Far from their usual style, ‘People’ shows that the boys have some pretty incredible musical range.

7. Royal Blood – Little Monster

The second duo to make an appearance here, Little Monster went off like a rocket at R&L19. It’s crazy how much noise Royal Blood can make with just two people!

6. The Wombats – Let’s Dance to Joy Division

Indie rock icons The Wombats are no strangers to R&L with this classic tune blessing the main stage in 2019, as well as a number of different stages over the years.

5. A Day To Remember – All I Want

Florida boys A Day To Remember have mastered a blend of pop-punk and metalcore. ‘All I Want’ and it’s cameo stacked video showing off their unmatched pop-punk skills.

4. Bowling For Soup – 1985

Speaking of pop-punk hears one of the sub-genres most iconic songs from one of it’s most long serving and iconic bands Bowling For Soup.

3. Enter Shikari – The Last Garrison

Picking just one Shikari song is almost as hard as defining their genre. ‘The Last Garrison’ is another one that has been blasted out at R&L plenty of times and we love it!

2. Twin Atlantic – Heart and Soul

We’re sure everyone knows the words to this chorus! An absolute tune from Scotland’s finest Twin Atlantic.

1. Mayday Parade – Jamie All Over

Another pop-punk classic that’s instantly recognisable to fans of the genre from it’s iconic opening line.
