Green Day‘s “Oh Yeah!” rises 2-1 on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart dated April 4, marking the band’s seventh No. 1 and second in a row.

The song follows the one-week reign of the trio’s “Father of All…” in November.

It’s the third time Green Day has snagged two straight No. 1s on Mainstream Rock Songs. “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” (14 weeks, beginning in January 2005) and “Holiday” (three weeks, starting in June 2005) led back-to-back, followed by “Bang Bang (seven weeks, beginning in September 2016) and “Still Breathing” (one week, February 2017).


Green Day first led Mainstream Rock Songs with “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” over 10 years after the band’s first entry on the chart, “Longview” (No. 13, 1994).

Concurrently, “Oh Yeah!” rises 4-3 on the Alternative Songs airplay list and places at No. 22 on the Adult Alternative Songs airplay survey. On the all-rock-format Rock Airplay ranking, the track bullets at its No. 2 peak with 7.9 million audience impressions, up 4%, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

“Oh Yeah!” is the second single from Green Day’s album Father of All…, which launched at No. 1 on Top Rock Albums and No. 4 on the Billboard 200 dated Feb. 22. The set has earned 84,000 equivalent album units to date.


Meanwhile, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is enjoying some pickup on adult pop radio stations with a different song: his cover of “I Think We’re Alone Now,” which he recorded in his bedroom amid the worldwide COVID-19 quarantine. Tommy James and the Shondells originally took the song to No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1967, and Tiffany spent two weeks at No. 1 with her remake in 1987.
