It’s been fascinating to watch how social media has influenced the younger generation’s consumption of classic rock.  The Fleetwood Mac Twitter Meme is a great example of the phenomenon.  

However you feel about the social media platform, a tweet from user @bottledfleet recently shared this now viral meme utilizing Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams.”

The result?  “Dreams” has launched to number 14 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs chart.  Per Billboard, download sales of “Dreams” has increased by 36 percent and has tallied 1.9 million streams from various music services.  Even Rumours has experienced a 12 percent increase in album units sold/streamed.
