Twenty One Pilots [ABC]

The streak continues for twenty one pilots’ “Heathens.”

The duo’s “Suicide Squad” single tops the Mediabase alternative airplay chart for a fifth consecutive week. This week’s stint at #1 comes thanks to a tracking period spin count of ~3,261 (-53).

Up one place, Bastille’s “Good Grief” grabs #2 on this week’s chart. It received ~2,674 spins during the September 18-24 tracking period (+104).

Green Day’s “Bang Bang,” which was #4 last week, improves to #3 this week. It garnered ~2,570 weekly plays (+78). Cage The Elephant’s “Trouble” drops two spots to #4 with ~2,446 spins (-166), and a weekly count of ~2,269 (-199) keeps Bishop Briggs’ “River” at #5.

The Top 5 does not welcome a new addition this week. The Top 10 does.

Up four places, Kings Of Leon’s “Waste A Moment” grabs #10 on this week’s chart. It garnered ~1,740 spins during the September 18-24 tracking period (+564).
