Shinedown

The band is already tied for the most No. 1s.

Shinedown moves to within one of the record for the most top 10s in the four-decade history of Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart, as "Atlas Falls" rises 12-8 on the June 27-dated tally.

Shinedown, led by frontman Brent Smith, now has 27 top 10s on the chart, breaking out of a tie with Godsmack and Van Halen.

The only act ahead of Shinedown: late leader Tom Petty, with 28 top 10s solo and with the Heartbreakers. (The chart began in March 1981.)

Most Top 10s, Mainstream Rock Songs
28, Tom Petty (solo and with the Heartbreakers)
27, Shinedown
26, Godsmack
26, Van Halen
25, Foo Fighters
24, Aerosmith
24, Five Finger Death Punch

Each of Shinedown's 27 Mainstream Rock Songs entries has reached the top 10, dating to the band's first, "Fly From the Inside," in 2003. In fact, all of the band's singles prior to "Atlas Falls" have reached the tally's top five, a record that the song could extend (especially as it enters the top 10 with Greatest Gainer honors).

"Atlas Falls" could further pad Shinedown's active streak of five straight Mainstream Rock Songs No. 1s, a run stretching to March 2017 and encompassing "How Did You Love," "Devil," "Get Up," "Monsters" and "Attention Attention." Should "Atlas Falls" continue that streak, Shinedown would solely claim the most No. 1s in the chart's history; it currently has 16, tied for the best mark with Three Days Grace.

Concurrently, "Atlas Falls" jumps 30-24 on the all-rock-format, audience-based Rock Airplay chart with 1.7 million audience impressions, up 28%, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
