Linkin Park Breaks David Bowie Record

Linkin Park has broken a record by having 23 songs on Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart at the same time following the July 20th suicide of singer Chester Bennington. The group also dominated both the Top Rock Albums and Hard Rock Albums charts. The previous Hot Rock Songs record holder was David Bowie, who notched 21 of his songs on the chart dated January 30th, 2016 following his own death that same month. Linkin Park's highest-charting song for the week of August 12th was their big 2003 hit, "Numb," which peaked at Number Two. Imagine Dragons remained at Number One with "Believer" and also captured the Number Six spot while Portugal The Man held on at Number Five. But otherwise, Linkin Park dominated the entire Hot Rock Songs chart, landing seven cuts in the Top 10.
