Shinedown sets record for most #1 singles


SHINEDOWN has broken the record for the most No. 1s ever in the 39-year history of the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart, scoring its 16th No. 1 hit this week with "Atlas Falls".

SHINEDOWN frontman Brent Smith says: "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. We share this #1 with the whole world, and we say thank you so very much.”

This also marks the band's 17th No. 1 on the Mediabase Active Rock chart and its sixth consecutive No. 1, following "How Did You Love", "Devil", "Get Up", "Monsters" and "Attention Attention".
