Creators of ‘NOW’ series launch rock-themed spinoff with Bring Me The Horizon, Fall Out Boy, more

Bring Me The Horizon

We’ve all seen those NOW That’s What I Call Music! compilation CDs before—there have been 56 installments in the U.S. alone since 1998, with the number totaling 92 editions in the series’ homeland of the United Kingdom. Usually, these collections are stocked with the biggest pop hits of the day, with an occasional rock track sneaking its way on. Now, it’s time for rock ’n’ roll to get its own series: Presenting NOW That’s What I Call Rock!, to be released January 22 via Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment. The 21-song collection features recent hits from Bring Me The Horizon [pictured], Fall Out Boy, Imagine Dragons, X Ambassadors, the Struts, Wolf Alice and many more, though the definition of “rock” might be disputed with more than one of these tracks. (Not to editorialize, but there is nothing “rock” about that goddamn Walk The Moon song.) You can view the full tracklisting below and pick up the album on January 22 (or just go make a YouTube playlist of all of these for free; whichevs).
