Linkin Park’s ‘Friendly Fire’ Reaches No. 1 On Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay Chart

Linkin Park‘s “Friendly Fire” has reached No. 1 on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart.

“Friendly Fire” rose from 3rd position to No. 1 on the April 20-dated survey. The song is the band’s second No. 1 in a row following “Lost,” which reigned for eight weeks starting in March 2023.

“Friendly Fire” is Linkin Park’s 10th No. 1, making the band the 12th act to score double-digit No. 1s in the Mainstream Rock Airplay chart’s 43-year history. Shinedown leads with 19 chart-toppers.

“Friendly Fire” previously topped the all-rock-format, audience-based Rock & Alternative Airplay chart; it debuted at No. 1 on the March 9 tally and has led for two weeks so far. It currently ranks at No. 2 with 6.9 million audience impressions from April 5-11, up 6%, according to Luminate.

The song was recorded during the sessions for, but not included on, Linkin Park’s last album, One More Light, released in 2017. The song is now part of Papercuts (Singles Collection 2000-2023), the band’s new greatest hits compilation, released on April 12.
