Encyclopedia > Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles

The Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles is a chart released weekly by Billboard in the United States. It is composed of 25 positions that represent songs that are making progress to chart on the main singles chart, the Billboard Hot 100. Many times, singles halt their progress at this chart, and never debut on the Hot 100. For example, a Kelly Clarkson song stayed at #101 and never went any higher. Also, more noticeable examples are the Pet Shop Boys's "Can you forgive her?", "Go West", "Before" and "Somewhere" which halted their progress in #109, #106, #107 and #125 respectively, to never appear again in the chart. Madonna "Bubbled Under" the Hot 100 with her very first single, "Everybody" (#107), in 1982, and has since had several other singles "bubble under" while failing to reach the Hot 100 (such as "Get Together", "Hollywood", and "Jump"). Billboard is a weekly American magazine devoted to the music industry. ... The Billboard Hot 100 is the United States music industry standard singles popularity chart issued weekly by Billboard magazine. ... Kelly Brianne Clarkson (born April 24, 1982) is a Grammy Award-winning American singer and actress who has enjoyed success in the pop and rock music genres. ...

The Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart can also be seen as a 25-position addendum to the Hot 100, but the chart only represents the 25 songs below position #100 which have not yet appeared on the Hot 100. If a song were to be ranked at #99 but then moved the following week to a position that is comparable to #105, it would not be eligible for the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart because it already appeared on the Hot 100 chart (although it would be eligible to re-enter the Hot 100 if it rebounded to such a level). The chart has sometimes been reduced to as few as 15 songs (during 1959-1960), but expanded to as many as 35 during the turbulent 1960s, particularly during years when over 1000 songs made the Pop charts. However, the charts eventually settled down to 25 positions, from 1992 onward.


The "Bubbling Under" charts first appeared in Billboard's June 1, 1959 issue. It continued until August 31, 1985, but was dropped from the magazine for seven years, apparently due to lack of interest from radio stations and retail stores. The "Bubbling Under" charts suddenly reappeared in the December 5, 1992 issue, and continue to the present.


Several reference books on the history of the Billboard "Bubbling Under" charts have been published by Joel Whitburn's Record Research company. The latest book (from 2005) was Bubbling Under The Billboard Hot 100: 1959-2004.
