This Week in Billboard Chart History: In 1965, The Rolling Stones Got ‘Satisfaction’ at No. 1

The legends landed their first Hot 100 No. 1. Plus, remembering feats by The Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce & Garth Brooks.

Your weekly recap celebrating significant milestones from more than seven decades of Billboard chart history.

July 10, 1965
The Rolling Stones rocked their first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, as “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” logged its first of four weeks at the summit. The band boasts eight total No. 1s, the fourth-best total among groups, after The Beatles (20), The Supremes (12) and Bee Gees (nine).

July 11, 2009
The bad news for The Black Eyed Peas: eight years ago today, their “Boom Boom Pow” ended a 12-week reign atop the Billboard Hot 100. The good news? They replaced themselves at No. 1 with follow-up “I Gotta Feeling,” which went on to spend even more time on top: 14 weeks. The 26-week domination for the songs marks the longest by a single act in the Hot 100’s history.


July 12, 2003
Beyonce earned her first of five Billboard Hot 100 No. 1s apart from Destiny’s Child (with whom she achieved four leaders), as “Crazy in Love,” featuring her then-future-husband, JAY-Z, began an eight-week command.

July 13, 1985
A year after landing its first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 with “The Reflex,” Duran Duran ruled again, as “A View to a Kill,” the title theme to the 14th James Bond film, rose 2-1.

July 14, 1990
“Holding you, I held everything. For a moment, wasn’t I the king?” Garth Brooks sings in “The Dance,” his modern country classic that began a four-week reign on Hot Country Songs on this date 27 years ago. Brooks is currently scaling the chart with “Ask Me How I Know,” his 86th entry on the ranking.

July 15, 2006
Nelly Furtado notched her first No. 1 on Billboard‘s Pop Songs chart, as “Promiscuous,” featuring Timbaland, began an eight-week domination. She’d lead again for four weeks in 2007 with “Say It Right.”

July 16, 2011
We partied! LMFAO‘s “Party Rock Anthem,” featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock, spent its first of six weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100. The song would also reign as the No. 1 song of the summer of 2011.
