The last time an act tripled up on the chart? Metallica in 2008.
Metallica's "Atlas, Rise!" debuts at No. 22 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart dated Nov. 19, giving the legendary metal act three songs on the chart simultaneously. It's the first time an act has tripled up since… Metallica did it eight years ago.
"Atlas" joins previously released tracks "Moth Into Flame" (No. 6) and "Hardwired" (No. 23) on the chart, marking the first time that an act has charted at least three songs on Mainstream Rock Songs simultaneously since Metallica on the Sept. 27, 2008-dated ranking. That week, "The Day That Never Comes" was amid its seven-week run at No. 1 and was joined by "Cyanide" (No. 35) and "My Apocalypse" (No. 40).
