TOOL’s “Fear Inoculum” Earns #1 At Active Rock Radio

“Fear Inoculum” reaches #1 on the active rock chart.

The title track from TOOL’s chart-topping album wins a tight race on this week’s Mediabase active rock radio chart.

Played 1,716 times during the October 6-12 tracking period, “Fear Inoculum” rises two places to #1. This week’s spin count tops last week’s mark by 126 plays — but only leads that of the #2 song by 3 plays.

The Glorious Sons’ “Panic Attack,” which falls one spot to #2, received 1,713 spins this week (+1).

Highly Suspect’s “16” rises two places to #3 on this week’s chart, while Green Day’s “Father Of All…” holds at #4. Down three places, Dirty Honey’s former #1 “When I’m Gone” takes #5 this week.
