Foo Fighters have broken a new Billboard chart record.
The band’s song “Love Dies Young,” the current single off their new album Medicine at Midnight, has reached number nine on the Mainstream Rock Airplay chart, giving Dave Grohl and company a total of 29 top-10 hits on the ranking. That breaks a tie with Tom Petty, who hit the 41-year-old chart’s top 10 28 times as a solo artist and with the Heartbreakers, making the Foos the sole leader in Mainstream Rock Airplay top-10s.
Earlier this year, “Love Dies Young” helped Foo Fighters break another Billboard record when it earned the band their 14th top-10 hit on the Rock & Alternative Airplay ranking, which combines radio airplay across rock and alternative formatted stations. Twenty One Pilots and Cage the Elephant are tied for second, notching 13 top-10s across the chart’s 12-year history.
If you wish to celebrate the Foo Fighters’ achievement and enjoy a little hockey while you’re at it, the Cleveland Monsters minor-league hockey team is giving out Dave Grohl bobble-heads to the first 10,000 fans who attend its game against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins this Saturday, January 29.
