Bad Wolves’ ‘Sober’ Becomes Band’s Fourth Mainstream Rock Songs No. 1 in Five Tries

Bad Wolves top Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs radio airplay chart for the fourth time in five tries, as “Sober” rises 2-1 on the ranking dated June 20.

The Tommy Vext-led band’s hot streak dates to 2018, when it first led the chart with its cover of The Cranberries’ “Zombie” for three weeks that May. “Hear Me Now,” featuring Diamante, reached No. 2 that December, followed by two more No. 1s before “Sober”: “Remember When” (for two weeks last July) and “Killing Me Slowly” (one week this January).

Thanks to its two most recent No. 1s, Bad Wolves are the first act to nab multiple Mainstream Rock Songs leaders in 2020 (and, by extension, this decade).

Concurrently, “Sober” jumps into the top 10 of the all-rock-format Rock Airplay chart, rising 11-9 with 3.3 million audience impressions, up 11%, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. “Sober” is Bad Wolves’ second Rock Airplay top 10, after “Zombie” hit No. 7 in April 2018.

“Sober” is the second single from N.A.T.I.O.N., the band’s second studio album, which debuted at No. 2 on the Hard Rock Albums chart dated Nov. 9, 2019. It has earned 30,000 equivalent album units to date.
