Breaking Benjamin’s “Angels Fall” Remains #1 at Active Rock Radio; Papa Roach Goes Top 5

Last week, Breaking Benjamin’s “Angels Fall” became the second “Dark Before Dawn” single to reach #1 on the Mediabase active rock airplay chart.

This week, it becomes the second “Dark Before Dawn” single to reign for more than a single week.

Spun 1,915 times within the October 25-31 tracking week (-36), “Angels Fall” earns a second straight week at #1 on the listing.

“Failure,” the previous (and first) “Dark Before Dawn” single, ruled the chart for eight weeks.

The balance of this week’s Top 5:

2 (=) – Red Sun Rising’s “The Otherside” (1,758 spins, -112)
3 (+2) – Bring ME The Horizon’s “Throne” (1,599 spins, +152)
4 (-1) – Chris Cornell’s “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart” (1,569 spins, +25)
5 (+1) – Papa Roach’s “Gravity” (1,328 spins, -22)

Despite the slight week-over-week spin loss, the Papa Roach song is making its inaugural Top 5 appearance.
