The track tops the Adult Alternative Songs airplay chart.
After more than a decade and a half as a band, Arcade Fire has achieved its first No. 1 song on a U.S. Billboard chart.
"Everything Now," the lead single from the band's upcoming fifth full-length album of the same name, vaults 3-1 on the Adult Alternative Songs airplay chart dated July 29, giving Arcade Fire its first No. 1 song in the U.S. (The band formed in Montreal in 2001.)
The new No. 1 comes 10 years after the group's first song on the ranking, "Keep the Car Running," which debuted at No. 25 on the chart dated April 21, 2007, and eventually peaked at No. 19. That gives Arcade Fire the fifth-longest span between a first week on Adult Alternative Songs (which began in 1996) and a first week at No. 1, with a variety of fellow alt-rock heavyweights ahead in the mix: Modest Mouse, Wilco, Pearl Jam and, with the longest streak, Beck.
