Two weeks ago, Coldplay’s “Adventure Of A Lifetime” seized the alternative airplay throne from Cage The Elephant’s “Mess Around.” Last week, “Mess Around” recaptured the #1 position.

This week, “Adventure” returns to #1 on Mediabase’s alternative airplay chart.

Spun ~2,652 times during the February 21-27 tracking week (-139), “Adventure Of A Lifetime” earns a second, non-consecutive week atop the listing. “Mess Around” slips to #2 courtesy its ~2,614 weekly plays (-184).

Foals’ “Mountain At My Gates” holds at #3 with ~2,604 tracking week spins, while Nothing But Thieves’ “Trip Switch” (#4, +1 | ~2,364, +76) and twenty one pilots’ “Stressed Out” (#5, -1 | ~2,286, -105) complete the Top 5.
