Music Act to Top Mainstream Rock Songs Chart
With “Feel Invincible,” the band reigns for the first time, dating to its debut on the chart in 2004.
Skillet crowns Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs radio airplay chart for the first time, as “Feel Invincible” rises 2-1 on the chart dated Nov. 19. The song also makes Skillet the first Christian music act to rule in the history of the chart, which launched in 1981.
“Feel,” Skillet’s 12th charted title on Mainstream Rock Songs, hits the pinnacle 12-and-a-half years after the band’s first visit to the tally, with “Savior,” on the May 22, 2004-dated chart. Despite the act’s lengthy wait for a first No. 1, Ozzy Osbourne holds the record for the longest, one that lasted more than twice as long as Skillet’s: more than 26 years between the debut of “Crazy Train” (April 18, 1981) and the coronation of “I Don’t Wanna Stop” (July 7, 2007).
