Chevelle Nets 5th No. 1 on Mainstream Rock Songs Chart With 'Joyride (Omen)'
The rock band’s newest single leaps 3-1, becoming its fifth No. 1 on the airplay chart.
Chevelle's latest single, “Joyride (Omen),” jumps 3-1 to lead the Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart dated Aug. 13 after a 4 percent bump in airplay (in the week ending July 31), according to Nielsen Music. "Joyride" is the lead track from the band's newest album, The North Corridor, which bowed at No. 1 on Top Rock Albums (dated July 30).
It’s the latest in a line of No. 1s for the trio, originally consisting of Loeffler brothers Pete, Joe and Sam but with brother-in-law Dean Bernardini taking over for Joe a decade ago. After first debuting on the chart with the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it “Point #1” -- which debuted and peaked at No. 40 on the Feb. 26, 2000, chart and fell off the week after -- Chevelle first reached No. 1 with the four-week reign of “Send the Pain Below” in July 2003.
Since then, the band has also led with “Vitamin R (Leading Us Along)” (two weeks, December 2004), “Face to the Floor” (12 weeks, December 2011) and “Take Out the Gunman” (three weeks, April 2014).
“Joyride” also reaches a new peak of No. 16 on Rock Airplay, rising to 4.5 million in overall audience, and re-enters Hot Rock Songs, which takes into account radio airplay, digital sales and streaming, at No. 45; it previously entered at No. 40 on the June 4-dated chart.
