Green Day returned to the top of the heap on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs chart last week with "Bang Bang" -- Revolution Radio's lead single, which jumped 5-1 on the tally dated Sept. 10.
The song became Green Day's fourth No. 1 on the chart as the band completes its fastest rise to the top; "Bang Bang" reigns in just its third week, topping the trio's previous best, a five-week ascent for 2009's "Know Your Enemy." The new coronation is the fastest (from a chart debut) since Foo Fighters' "Something to Nothing" needed only two weeks in November 2014. Prior to the Foos, no song had taken three weeks or fewer since Metallica's "The Day That Never Comes" in 2008, meaning that Green Day's speedy sprint to the top is a rare achievement.
