Shinedown, Godsmack, Coldplay & More Rise on Rock Charts

Shinedown has now placed all of their songs within the top 10 of Mainstream Rock Songs, an unparalleled achievement.

Shinedown continues to bat 1,000 when it comes to the Mainstream Rock Songs chart’s top 10.

The band extends its record on the ranking (dated Dec. 12), as latest single “State of My Head” surges 14-10. With the move, each of the Florida rockers’ 20 entries on the chart have now hit the top 10 (with the first 19 all reaching the top five; nine have led the list). Shinedown first charted with “Fly From the Inside,” which rose to No. 5 in 2003.

Meanwhile, other bands make news on Billboard‘s rock charts.

Godsmack scores its first No. 1 on Hard Rock Digital Songs as “Inside Yourself” debuts on top with 11,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen Music. The track also bows at No. 9 on Rock Digital Songs.


As Twenty One Pilots crown the Alternative Songs airplay chart for a fourth week with “Stressed Out,” the track takes over atop Rock Airplay. The band’s first leader on each list rises 2-1 on the latter with 11.6 million audience impressions. The song is also crossing to pop radio, rising 34-28 on Pop Songs and debuting at No. 36 on Adult Pop Songs.

Coldplay‘s “Adventure of a Lifetime” lifts 11-10 on Alternative Songs, becoming the quartet’s 12th top 10 on the airplay tally. At four weeks, it’s the band’s fastest top 10 on the chart since “Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall” also reached the region in just four frames in 2011. Alternative Songs is the first songs chart on which Coldplay ever appeared: 15 years ago this week, the band’s debut hit “Yellow” entered at No. 35. It would become the group’s first top 10, climbing to No. 6.

“Lifetime” leads off Coldplay’s album A Head Full of Dreams, released today (Dec. 4). Yesterday, it was confirmed that the band will touch down in Santa Clara, Calif., Feb. 7 to play the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show.
