Petty's top 10 mark of 28 had stood alone for over two decades.
Foo Fighters match Tom Petty, solo and with the Heartbreakers, for the most top 10 songs in the 40-year history of Billboard's Mainstream Rock Airplay chart, as "Making a Fire" jumps 15-9 on the survey dated July 17.
"Fire" is the Dave Grohl-led rockers' 28th top 10, dating to their first in 1995, when "This Is a Call" peaked at No. 6.
Petty accumulated 28 top 10s (including nine from solo albums) between 1981 -- when the chart started -- and 1999, topping all acts for over two decades before Foo Fighters tied the mark.
