Shinedown have broken the record for most No. 1s on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart. The band earned the honor after scoring their 16th No. 1 with their latest single “Atlas Falls.” The track was also the group’s 17th No. 1 on the Mediabase Active Rock chart and their sixth consecutive No. 1.
Brent Smith commented:
“Myself, Barry, Zach and Eric are beyond humbled.
‘Atlas Falls’ represents so many emotions, especially now.
The success of this song would have never been achieved if it wasn’t for the audience, the fans, ‘family,’ the people.
A song that was written and recorded eight years ago found its voice in 2020 in the midst of a global pandemic as a symbol of optimism, courage, and the human spirit.
I want to personally thank not only our management In De Goot Entertainment, our label Atlantic Records, our incredible partners at radio and Direct Relief for giving us the inspiration to release the song.
We share this #1 with the whole world, and we say thank you so very much.
‘Don’t give up now…There’s already so much at stake.'”
