After 8 1/2 years, Linkin Park’s back on top with “Lost”

Warner Records

If you’re looking for Linkin Park, their song “Lost” can be found on top of Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Airplay.

The band’s latest release, “Lost” has reached the summit of Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart. It’s the first time they’ve been number one on that chart since 2014 with “Until It’s Gone.” “Lost” took just four weeks to reach number one, the fastest climb for a Linkin Park record since 2007’s “What I’ve Done.”

“Lost” is also Linkin Park’s first number one on this chart since lead vocalist Chester Bennington died in 2017, and it’s a posthumous achievement for the late singer: He and Linkin Park recorded “Lost” during the sessions for 2003’s Meteora. It wasn’t released until this year as the first single from the upcoming 20th anniversary reissue of the album, due out April 7.

In addition, “Lost” is now in its fourth week at number one on Billboard‘s Rock & Alternative Airplay chart.

Meteora, which hit number one upon its release in 2003, has sold 16 million copies worldwide. It spun off multiple hits, including “Numb,” “Somewhere I Belong,” “Faint” and “From the Inside.”

As previously reported, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda dropped a solo single Friday: “In My Head,” from the movie Scream VI.
