Each of Shinedown’s 28 Mainstream Rock Airplay entries has reached the top 10, dating to the band’s first, “Fly From the Inside,” which hit No. 5 in September 2003. In fact, the first 27 songs have all reached the top five, a distinction that looks likely to extend to “Zero,” given its swift start.
“Zero” ranks at No. 17 on the all-rock-format, audience-based Rock & Alternative Airplay list with 1.9 million audience impressions, according to MRC Data. In addition to its mainstream rock radio airplay, it’s bubbling under Alternative Airplay.
“Zero” also vaults 16-4 on the multi-metric Hot Hard Rock Songs chart and debuts at Nos. 25 and 28 on the corresponding Hot Alternative Songs and Hot Rock & Alternative Songs lists, respectively. Along with its radio play, it earned 1.4 million U.S. streams and sold 1,200 downloads in the Jan. 28-Feb. 3 tracking period, its first full week of sales and streams following its Jan. 26 release.
Shinedown’s new album, also titled Planet Zero, is scheduled for release April 22.
