Foo Fighters ‘Run’ Back to Rock Airplay Chart’s Top 10

The first song from the band's upcoming album debuts at No. 9, the best debut in nearly a year.

Foo Fighters return to Billboard‘s rock charts with “Run,” the lead single from the band’s upcoming ninth studio album.

The track debuts at No. 9 on the Rock Airplay chart (dated June 17), earning 5 million audience impressions in just four days dating to its June 1 release, according to Nielsen Music. The bow marks the chart’s best since Green Day also launched at No. 9 with “Bang Bang” (Aug. 27, 2016).

“Run” also soars in at No. 1 on Hard Rock Digital Song Sales with one day of sales (7,000) and at No. 23 on the Alternative Songs airplay chart, marking the Foos’ 32nd entry on the latter ranking. The group ties Green Day for the fourth-most Alternative Songs visits all-time, after U2 (41), Pearl Jam (38) and Red Hot Chili Peppers (33).


On the Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart, “Run” arrives at No. 24, marking Foo Fighters’ 30th charted track.

“Run” marks the Dave Grohl-led act’s first single since “Saint Cecilia” (from the EP of the same name), released in late 2015. The band’s previous full-length, 2014’s Sonic Highways, earned it a pair of No. 1s on both Rock Airplay and Mainstream Rock Songs: “Something from Nothing” and “Congregation.” “Something” also topped Alternative Songs.
