Released this past fall, Foo Fighters’ “Something from Nothing” spent several weeks atop Mediabase’s active rock airplay chart and still holds a top 5 position.
The band hopes to achieve a similarly lengthy run with apparent new single “Congregation.”
Whether it does so remains to be seen, but the band can at least celebrate a solid early reception from radio.
Already #38 on the rolling airplay chart, “Congregation” was also the active rock format’s most-added song this week. While its add count of 16 does not break any records, it does represent the greatest level of support offered by the format’s programmers this week.
Cage the Elephant’s “Cigarette Daydreams” and Halestorm’s “Apocalyptic” tied as second-most-added with 10 pickups each.
Marilyn Manson’s “Deep Six,” the week’s fourth-most-added song, landed at 9 monitored stations. Bring Me the Horizon’s “Drown” and Motley Crue’s “All Bad Things” then shared the fifth-most-added distinction with 8 adds each.
Like “Something from Nothing,” “Congregation,” which credits Zac Brown as a featured artist, is cut from “Sonic Highways.”
