Disturbed [Travis Shinn | WBR]

“The Sound Of Silence” continues its dominant run at active rock radio. Based on airplay earned during the April 10-16 tracking week, Disturbed’s cover of the Simon and Garfunkel classic scores a seventh consecutive week at #1 on the Mediabase chart.

Since it has only been on the chart for 13 weeks total, it has now spent more than half its run at #1.

This week’s victory comes courtesy a weekly spin count of ~1,896. That trails last week’s mark by 125 but still keeps the song comfortably on top.

Up two places, Red Sun Rising’s “Emotionless” takes the runner-up spot this week. It received ~1,667 tracking week spins (+43).

3 Doors Down’s “In The Dark” slips a spot to #3 courtesy its ~1,661 weekly spins (-146), while Muse’s “Reapers” falls one spot to #4 with ~1,635 (-144).

Played ~1,580 times during the tracking week (+13), Bring Me The Horizon’s “Happy Song” holds at #5.
