Green Day Ties for Most Rock Airplay Chart No. 1s

"Oh Yeah!" becomes the band's sixth leader.

Green Day matches Foo Fighters for the most No. 1s in the history of Billboard‘s all-rock-format Rock Airplay chart, as “Oh Yeah!” rises 2-1 on the list dated April 11.

The song reigns with 8.6 million audience impressions (up 7%) in the tracking week ending April 5, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

“Oh Yeah!” is Green Day’s second consecutive leader on the list, following “Father of All…,” which led for three weeks last fall.


In all, Green Day now boasts six Rock Airplay No. 1s, dating to its first, “Know Your Enemy,” which ruled the chart upon its inception on June 21, 2009.

“Oh Yeah!” concurrently spends its second week at No. 1 on the Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart, while it rises 3-2 on Alternative Songs. It reached No. 19 last month on Adult Alternative Songs.


The song is the second single from Green Day’s Father of All.., which debuted at No. 1 on Top Rock Albums and No. 4 on the Billboard 200 dated Feb. 22 and has earned 85,000 equivalent album units to date.

Concurrently this week, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong makes his own headlines, as his solo cover of “I Think We’re Alone Now” (recorded in his bedroom) enters a pair of charts.
