Madness Breaks Record On Billboard Charts

The band's current hit establishes the longest command in the chart's 24-year archives.

With a 19th week atop Billboard's Nielsen BDS-based Alternative Songs radio airplay chart, Muse's "Madness" rewrites the mark for the longest stay at No. 1 in the survey's 24-year history.

The track passes the 18-week domination of Foo Fighters' "The Pretender" in 2007. Muse also boasts the next title on the list of those with the most weeks atop Alternative Songs: the British trio spent 17 weeks at No. 1 with "Uprising" in 2009-10.
