Seether Sets New Personal Best Atop Mainstream Rock Airplay Chart With ‘Wasteland’

Seether‘s “Wasteland” becomes the band’s ninth No. 1 on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart, reaching the top of the Oct. 30-dated list.

“Wasteland” is the Shaun Morgan-led rockers’ third No. 1 from their latest album Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum, giving the group a trio of toppers from a single set for the first time, as well as its first streak of three No. 1s in a row. The LP’s “Dangerous” led for three weeks in October 2020, followed by two frames for “Bruised and Bloodied” this May.

With nine No. 1s total — dating to its first, “Remedy,” in 2005 — Seether slots into a tie for the 10th-most No. 1s in the chart’s 40-year history, alongside Aerosmith and Volbeat. Shinedown leads all acts with 16 No. 1s.


Concurrently, “Wasteland” lifts 8-7 on the all-rock-format, audience-based Rock & Alternative Airplay chart with 3.1 million audience impressions, up 7%, according to MRC Data. It’s Seether’s highest-ranking song on the list since “Tonight,” which peaked at No. 4 in November 2011.

“Wasteland” also breaks into the top 10 of the multi-metric Hot Hard Rock Songs survey, leaping 13-10 with 136,000 U.S. streams in addition to its radio audience.

Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum, Seether’s eighth studio set, debuted at No. 3 on the Hard Rock Albums chart in September 2020 and has earned 75,000 equivalent album units to date.
