The band's new single "Dark Necessities" becomes its 25th top 10 on the ranking.
Red Hot Chili Peppers are back in a familiar region on Billboard chart: the top 10.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers rank in the top 10 on all four radio-based rock charts, including at No. 1 on Rock Airplay, as "Dark Necessities" shoots from No. 7 to the top with 12.6 million in audience following its first full week of tracking, according to Nielsen Music. Previously, the quartet topped the chart, which began in 2009, with "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie" for eight weeks in 2011.
"Dark" also ranks in the top 10 on Alternative Songs (up 20-4), Mainstream Rock Songs (19-6) and Adult Alternative Songs (No. 8 debut), becoming the first song to reach the top 10 on all three charts since Cage the Elephant's "Come a Little Closer" in 2013-14. It's also the sixth title with which the Chili Peppers have achieved the triple distinction, following 2011's "Maggie," Stadium Arcadium cuts "Dani California" and "Snow (Hey Oh)" (2006-07), 1999's "Scar Tissue" and 1996's "My Friends."
