Five Finger Death Punch No. 1, Foo Fighters Near History on Rock Charts
Also, the first top 10 for British rockers Nothing but Thieves, with "Trip Switch."
Five Finger Death Punch earns its fourth No. 1 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs chart (dated Jan. 23), and its first from Got Your Six, which entered Top Rock Albums at No. 1 in September, as "Wash It All Away" lifts 2-1.
The song is the Las Vegas five-piece's first chart-topper since "Battle Born," which began its five-week reign in December 2013.
"Wash It All Away" is the second single from Got Your Six; "Jekyll and Hyde" peaked at No. 3 in September. The new track also rises 24-20 on the airplay/sales/streaming-based Hot Rock Songs chart, a spot removed from its No. 19 peak two weeks ago.
TOP 10 'TRIP': Also on Hot Rock Songs, Nothing But Thieves rises 33-26, hitting a new peak with "Trip Switch." The move lines up with the act's first airplay top 10, as the cut climbs 11-9 on Alternative Songs and 13-10 on Rock Airplay (rising by 12 percent to 5.8 million in audience on the latter list, according to Nielsen Music).
Nothing but Thieves' self-titled debut LP is due Feb. 5 stateside via RCA.
'SAINT-'LY: As a newer rock band earns its first top 10, a veteran adds its latest, as Foo Fighters' "Saint Cecilia" becomes their 22nd top 10 on Mainstream Rock Songs, rising 15-10. Dating to its first week in the tier (Aug. 12, 1995, with "This Is a Call"), the band is tied with Godsmack for the most top 10s in that span.
On Alternative Songs, "Saint" ascends 21-20, marking Foo Fighters' 29th song to reach the chart's top 20, slotting the Dave Grohl-led act into a tie with Red Hot Chili Peppers for second-most top 20 entries dating to the chart's September 1988 debut. Only U2 has more, with 31.
