Foo Fighters’ Classic “Everlong” is The Number One Song on Billboard

Following the massive Taylor Hawkins Charity Tribute Concert, several Foo Fighters classics have re-entered the Billboard charts. As of this week, the Hot Hard Rock Songs chart dated September 17, as “Everlong” is No. 1 while “My Hero” ranks at No. 3. “Everlong” is also No. 9 on Hot Alternative Songs, No. 11 on Hot Rock Songs, and No. 13 on Hot Rock & Alternative Songs. On those same charts, “My Hero” is at Nos. 14, 18, and 21, respectively.

During the tracking week ending September 8, “Everlong” racked up 4.3 million US streams (up 15 percent from the previous week) and sold 1,000 downloads (up 297 percent). Over the same period, “My Hero” got 2 million streams (up 53 percent) and 3,000 downloads (up 1,597 percent).

This is the third non-consecutive week at No. 1 on Hot Hard Rock Songs for “Everlong,” as it previously topped the chart on April 9 and 16, shortly after Hawkins’ passing.
