Halestorm’s ‘The Steeple’ Stands Highest on Mainstream Rock Airplay Chart

Halestorm adds its sixth ruler, and second in a row.

Halestorm strings together its second straight No. 1 on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart with “The Steeple,” which climbs to the top of the June 4-dated survey.

The song is the Lzzy Hale-led band’s sixth ruler overall, a run that began with “Freak Like Me” in April 2013. The group’s latest follows the one-week reign of “Back From the Dead” in November.

Halestorm boasts the second-most leaders by a woman-fronted act in the Mainstream Rock Airplay chart’s 41-year history, after The Pretty Reckless (seven).


Concurrently, “Steeple” lifts 11-8 on the all-rock-format, audience-based Rock & Alternative Airplay chart with 2.7 million audience impressions, up 4%, according to Luminate. Halestorm claims its second top 10 and best rank yet on the survey, exceeding “Dead,” which hit No. 9.

“Steeple” also jumps 18-14 on the multi-metric Hot Hard Rock Songs chart, after reaching No. 13 in May. In addition to its radio airplay, the song earned 237,000 official U.S. streams in the latest tracking week.

“Steeple” is the second single from Back From the Dead, Halestorm’s fifth studio album. The set debuted at No. 2 on the Top Hard Rock Albums list dated May 21 and has earned 30,000 equivalent album units to date.
