Stone Temple Pilots returned Friday (Feb. 7) with their eighth studio album and first all-acoustic album, Perdida. The band dropped the lead single, “Fare Thee Well,” on Dec. 2, and it’s been climbing Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart, currently peaking at No. 34 for the week of Feb. 8.

Since the band debuted in 1992 with the eight-times platinum Core, STP has had a steady stream of hit singles on the Billboard charts. From the massive 1993 hit “Plush,” which spent 31 weeks on the chart and peaked at No. 1, to 1996’s “Trippin’ on a Hole in a Paper Heart” (26 weeks, and also a No. 1 hit), the alt-rockers were rarely absent until 2003, a year after the band went on hiatus.

They reunited and returned to the Billboard song charts in 2010 with “Between the Lines,” which set a record at the time for the biggest jump (from No. 40 to No. 2) on the Rock Songs chart. There was another break until 2013’s “Out of Time” and “Black Heart,” when Chester Bennington filled in after the band fired frontman Scott Weiland. STP was back on the charts again in 2017 with new lead singer Jeff Gutt after the deaths of Weiland in December 2015 and Bennington in July 2017.

With STP’s nearly three decades of consistent hits, we decided to see which of their top-charting Mainstream Rock hits you think is best. Vote below!
