Twenty One Pilots

Twenty One Pilots Make History on the Charts

Twenty One Pilots have become the first artist to have a different number one song on both the pop and alternative songs charts at the same time:

While Twenty One Pilots are the first act to top Pop Songs and Alternative Songs simultaneously with a pair of tracks, they’re the sixth to lead the Nielsen Music-based lists at the same time (the prior five having done so with the same song on both charts). The duo of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun is the first act to rank at No. 1 on both charts simultaneously in 11 years, since Green Day doubled up with “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” for four weeks in March 2005. (That hit led Alternative Songs for 16 total weeks; the last four of those coincided with the song’s four-week reign on Pop Songs.)
