With its 23rd top 10, the band matches U2's total & moves closer to Red Hot Chili Peppers' record 25.

Foo Fighters' "Run" sprints into the top 10 of Billboard's Alternative Songs airplay chart (dated July 15), pushing the band one step closer to the mark for the most top 10s in the chart's history.

The lead single from the Dave Grohl-led act's upcoming ninth studio album, Concrete & Gold (Sept. 15), rises 12-10, giving the band 23 top 10s, dating to its first: the No. 2-peaking debut single "This Is a Call" (Aug. 5, 1995).

With 23 top 10s (10 of which have hit No. 1), Foo Fighters tie U2 for the second-most top 10s since Alternative Songs began on Sept. 10, 1988. (U2 last reached the region with 2009's "Get On Your Boots," which hit No. 5 in 2009.) The only band left for Foo Fighters to catch is currently amid its own album cycle: Red Hot Chili Peppers, who have notched 25 top 10s. The band most recently hit the top 10 with the lead single from The Getaway, "Dark Necessities," which led the chart dated Aug. 13, 2016.

The Chili Peppers' follow-up single, "Go Robot," peaked at No. 12 in February, while current single "Goodbye Angels" currently bullets at No. 27 after reaching No. 25 two weeks earlier, although with a new peak in weekly plays.

"Run" has already reached the top 10 on the Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart, this week rising to a new peak of No. 2; it's poised to become the Foos' seventh No. 1 on the tally. The band has also earned 23 top 10s on the chart (which began in 1981), the fourth-best total after Tom Petty (28, counting his solo releases and those with The Heartbreakers), Van Halen (26) and Aerosmith (24).

"Run" is also the Greatest Gainer on the all-rock-format Rock Airplay chart, climbing 4-3 with a 15 percent boost to 10 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen Music.
