Sum 41 Earn First No. 1 On Billboard’s Alternative Airplay Chart In Over 20 Years

Sum 41 have earned their first No. 1 on Billboard‘s Alternative Airplay chart in over 20 years, with “Landmines” climbing to the top spot on the tally dated March 9.

The Deryck Whibley-fronted band last made it to the top in August 2001 through “Fat lip.” The break of 22 years, five months and three weeks between No. 1s is by far the longest in the chart’s 35-year history, surpassing the 13 years and six months that The Killers waited between “When You Were Young” in October 2006 and “Caution” in April 2020.

During this 22-year period, Sum 41 had nine singles hit the Alternative Airplay chart, paced by the No. 7-peaking “Still Waiting” in 2003, with a pair of additional top 10s in “In Too Deep” (No. 10, 2001) and “We’re All to Blame” (No. 10, 2004).

“Landmines” takes over No. 1 on Alternative Airplay from Blink-182‘s “One More Time,” which had a 20-week run atop the chart, tying it with Portugal. The Man‘s “Feel It Still” for the most weeks at No. 1 in the chart’s history.
