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.)

Reddit Won’t Turn Over IP Address of User Who May Have Leaked Twenty One Pilots’ Song

Josh Katzowitz, writing for The Daily Dot, on Atlantic Records trying to get Reddit to release the IP address of the person that leaked a Twenty One Pilots’ song on the service:

“Upon becoming aware of the Posting, Atlantic attempted to have the illegally-distributed copies of ‘Heathens’ removed from the Internet,” the label said in the lawsuit. “Despite expending significant effort and funds in this attempt, the removal efforts were ultimately unsuccessful in curtailing further widespread distribution… As a result of the need to change the release date of ‘Heathens,’ Atlantic’s marketing efforts were substantially frustrated … Sales of the ‘Heathens’ single, which were unsupported by Atlantic’s carefully-planned marketing strategy, failed to reach predicted levels, causing substantial harm to Atlantic in the form of lost single and album sales revenue.”
