When it comes to deciding what to cover, our web traffic isn't everything, but it does give us a unique insight into what our readers like to read about the most. It turns out that our Gimme Noise readers love block party announcements (duh); Prince facts; that incessant Foster the People song that's invaded our airspace throughout the summer; and watching their music editor get into a Twitter spat with a celeb. Duly noted, readers -- we'll do our best to keep the drama alive as we head into the fall.
