The Pretty Reckless’ “Follow Me Down” Hits Top 5 on Mainstream Rock Songs

A few weeks ago, “Follow Me Down” became The Pretty Reckless’ third consecutive top ten single on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart.

This week, it becomes the band’s third consecutive top five single.

“Follow Me Down” rises to #5 on the latest edition of Billboard’s mainstream rock radio chart. The one position gain comes thanks to the 1,125 spins received during the latest tracking week.

As of Sunday, “Follow Me Down” is also a Top 5 hit on Mediabase’s corresponding Active Rock airplay chart.

Cut from the band’s “Going to Hell,” “Follow Me Down” follows successful releases “Messed Up World” and “Heaven Knows.” In addition to reaching the top five, those two songs also spent multiple weeks at #1.

Other Mainstream Rock movers this week:

— Foo Fighters’ “Congregation,” which was the week’s greatest airplay gainer, rises eight places to a new high of #9.

— Marilyn Manson’s “Deep Six” rises one spot to #10.

— The Offspring’s “Coming for You” enters the Top 20 at #16 (+7).

— Slash’s “Bent to Fly” joins the top 20 at #19 (+2). Bring Me the Horizon’s “Drown” rises two places to the #20 spot.
