Papa Roach earns its sixth No. 1 on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart, as “The Ending” crowns the March 13-dated survey.

Of its six rulers, five of the Jacoby Shaddix-led act’s No. 1s have led in the last six years. After first reaching the chart with breakthrough single “Last Resort” (No. 4 peak), its first of 22 top 10s, in 2000, the band took nine years before “Lifeline” became its first No. 1 in April 2009. Then, 2015 one-week leader “Face Everything and Rise” kicked off a hot streak into the 2020s.

“The Ending” also gives Papa Roach its first set of back-to-back No. 1s, as the song follows prior entry “Come Around,” which led for a week in December 2019.


All four singles from the band’s 2019 album Who Do You Trust? have hit the Mainstream Rock Airplay chart’s top five. Along with its two latest leaders, the title track and “Elevate” reached Nos. 3 and 4 in February and June 2019, respectively.

On the all-rock-format, audience-based Rock & Alternative Airplay tally, “The Ending” bullets at its No. 14 high with 2.7 million audience impressions, up 12%, according to MRC Data.

Who Do You Trust? debuted at No. 3 on the Hard Rock Albums chart in February 2019 and has earned 83,000 equivalent album units to date.
