Three Days Grace broke records after their song “Infra-Red” shot to the top of the charts, making it their 14th No. 1 in the Billboard mainstream rock songs chart’s 37-year history.
The band’s track rose from 2 to 1 on the airplay chart dated September 15, meaning they’ve now taken over from Van Halen, who have scored 13 No. 1s in their time.
The Canadian group scored their first No. 1 with “Just Like You” back in August 2004.
Three Days Grace and Van Halen are followed by Shinedown, who have scored 12 No. 1s, Tom Petty (solo and with the Heartbreakers), who have scored 10, and Aerosmith and Metallica who both have nine.
Three Days Grace also hold the record for the most weeks at No. 1 in the chart, holding onto the top spot for a whopping 82 weeks in total.
Drummer Neil Sanderson said of their latest release: “If you had told me when we were 14 and making noise in our garage that someday we’d set the record for most #1 rock songs in America, I would’ve called you bat-s**t crazy!!
“Accomplishments like this are never done individually. We want to thank our family who’s supported us from Day 1, rock radio who get our music to the masses, our label and friends in the industry for believing in the band, and most importantly all our loyal fans on this amazing journey with us,” he added, according to iHeartRadio.
