Green Day [Frank Maddocks | WBR Press]

Powered by hourly first day spins from iHeartMedia stations and the enthusiasm one would expect for a new single from the band, Green Day’s “Bang Bang” rockets onto the official alternative and active rock airplay charts.

The new single debuts at #17 on this week’s Mediabase alternative chart and #22 on the corresponding active rock listing.

“Bang Bang” debuted on the fifth day of the August 7-13 tracking period. By the close of tracking on August 13, it had attained approximately 969 alternative spins and ~553 active rock spins.

“Bang Bang” is the only addition to the Top 20 at alternative radio. It is one of two new Top 25 additions at active rock. Sixx:AM’s “Prayers For The Damned,” the other, rises from #27 to #25 on the strength of its ~373 weekly plays (+45).
