Three Days Grace Retains #1 at Rock Radio; The Offspring, AC/DC Go Top 10

Facing everything, Papa Roach’s “F.E.A.R.” will potentially rise to #1 on next week’s edition of the active rock radio chart.

It does not do so this week. That means Three Days Grace’s “I Am Machine” again rules over the rock radio format.

This week’s #1 position on the Mediabase active rock chart is courtesy the 1,778 spins commanded by the song during the February 22-28 tracking week. The aforementioned “Face Everything and Rise,” which holds at #2, received 1,738 weekly plays.

Other top five songs include Halestorm’s “Apocalyptic” (#3, 1,573), Foo Fighters’ “Congregation” (#4, 1,468) and The Pretty Reckless’ “Follow Me Down” (#5, 1,436). The latter two songs each rise one place this week thanks to the fall of Seether’s “Same Damn Life.” That track dips five places to #9 this week.

— New to the top ten this week: The Offspring’s “Coming for You” (#8, +6; 1,082 spins) and AC/DC’s “Rock or Bust” (#10, +1; 1,045 spins).
